Neoplatonism and magic - Anti-GospelNeoplatonism and magic - Anti-Gospel
Unfortunately, throughout the history of the Church, especially in the East, the ancient world’s fascination with magic and sophist philosophy was a severe temptation to churchmen. Many succumbed to it. The author quoted below (Dr. Robert O'Neill) is not a Christian. He is, however, a precise and accurate writer on the details and overall perspective of magic and ancient pagan philosophies and metaphysics. OK, what does that have to do with anything? Just this, in the below he very clearly shows the relationship of magical practices and Neoplatonic based Christian mysticism (refered to many times in theological writings under the rubric of mystagogy) and Christian visionaries and certain theologies and certain private prophecies. This relationship is not good. This relationship is not Christian. This relationship is not Catholic. Unfortunately, it is very “Eastern Orthodox Church”, it is very ecumenical, it is very much a prime base for the prophets and prophetesses who try to change Canonical Prophecy - especially the Book of the Revelation, it is very much the base for those who introduce all sorts of pagan demonic beliefs, influences and Diabolic presences and practices into the Church, it is the base for the OTO which is one of the absolutely worst forms of Freemasonry. The Early Church Fathers utterly condemned this Satanic garbage in the strictest of terms. It is the base for the magical practices that are the demonic changes in prophetic Scripture by self appointed seers who dare to try to alter the prophecies of the Book of the Revelation and the connected prophecies in the rest of the Bible. Those prophecies have already been exegeted properly and truly by the Church Fathers and it is blasphemous and Satanic to try to change that. In Scripture, the Book of the Revelation warns:
18 For I testify to every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: If any man shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues written in this book. (DRV)
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book. (DRV)
The Bible forbids categorically and completely anything to do with magic and pagan beliefs. As noted above those are the basis for introducing changes in Canonical Prophecy and Christian belief and practice. Begin with Exodus:
1 ¶ And the Lord spoke all these words:
2 I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God
9 ¶ When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee, beware lest thou have a mind to imitate the abominations of those nations.
10 Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observeth dreams and omens, neither let there be any wizard,
11 Nor charmer, nor any one that consulteth pythonic spirits, or fortune tellers, or that seeketh the truth from the dead.
12 For the Lord abhorreth all these things, and for these abominations he will destroy them at thy coming.
13 Thou shalt be perfect, and without spot before the Lord thy God.
The Prophets all echo this.
Then see the New Testament:
24 For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. (DRV)
9 There was therefore great joy in that city. Now there was a certain man named Simon who before had been a magician in that city, seducing the people of Samaria, giving out that he was some great one: (DRV)
11 And they were attentive to him, because, for a long time, he had bewitched them with his magical practices. (DRV)
8 But Elymas the magician (for so his name is interpreted) withstood them, seeking to turn away the proconsul from the faith. (DRV)
6 And when they had gone through the whole island, as far as Paphos, they found a certain man, a magician, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-Jesu: (DRV)
20 But I have against thee a few things: because thou sufferest the woman Jezabel, who calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants, to commit fornication and to eat of things sacrificed to idols. (DRV)
21 Neither did they penance from their murders nor from their sorceries nor from their fornication nor from their thefts. (DRV)
8 But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (DRV)
15 Without are dogs and sorcerers and unchaste and murderers and servers of idols and every one that loveth and maketh a lie. (DRV)
Paganism, magic, sorcery and false prophecy have always been linked together and have as their father, the father of lies - Satan, and ALWAYS are against God and offend and blaspheme Him. God will eternally destroy those who do such things.
The Mark, the Name, the Number of the beast and the Tower of Babel = Ecumenism: Look up, your redemption is at hand: Hermes TrimegistusLook up, your redemption is at hand: Hermes Trimegistus
Hermes Trimegistus is the triple god of the ancient Greeks and closely embedded with Isis-Horus of the ancient Egyptians. In the Gréco-égyptienne religion of the Roman dominated (both political and in the syncretistic religious sense) Mediterranean cultural milieu of the first century these were central to both Gnosticism and Hermeticism - both of which shared the belief that Lucifer (Satan - Saturn) was truly god on earth. The North African form of Hermes Trimegistus was Priapus and was most depraved in the worst sense. These are the sources for the Gnostic opposition to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and biblical faith in Him as Redeemer. This is the magic of the Gnostics and Hermetics, condemned without reservation by God. This magical "secret knowledge" is the very ancient Hermetic proposition of calling God and the Devil two sides of the same coin. That is a lie from Satan. Those who listen to that lie will be condemned to hell eternally by Jesus Christ at His return from heaven at the end of this age to resurrect all men and judge the quick and the dead.

Important! - None of the Seven Seals of Moses are actually anything to do with Moses, but are Pharaonic Magic instead and totally of the Devil. They also have nothing to do with Divine inspiration in the Bible and especially in the Book of the Revelation.

The Mark, the Name, the Number of the beast and the Tower of Babel = Ecumenism: Look up, your redemption is at hand: Hermes Trimegistus
During the first century A.D., Alexandria, Egypt was a veritable hotbed of mystical activity, a crucible in which, according to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, "Judaic, Mithraic, Zoroastrian, Pythagorean, Hermetic, and neo-Platonic doctrines suffused the air and combined with innumerable others." (31:123) It was in the early centuries of the Christian era that the ancient worship of the MOTHER GODDESS was introduced to Christianity by JEWS who had fled Israel and embraced Alexandrian Neo-Platonism, which is just a rehash of Greek paganism.
Satan's One World View -
From: The Mark, the Name, the Number of the beast and the Tower of Babel = Ecumenism: The Buddha is in Hell with his master the Devil
The Buddha is in Hell with his master the DevilThe Buddha is in Hell with his master the DevilLk:4:5 “And the devil led him into a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.” Jesus absolutely rejected this. Instead, to accept this false vision given by the devil as an indwelling of the divine, is exactly the same as the Buddhist teaching on attaining enlightenment in a moment of time encompassing past, present and future as Gotama was supposed to have done under the Banyan tree (the mahabodhi tree).

The symbolism here could not be more blatant. The pyramid, this symbolic structure representing secret societies operating on every continent, floats above the whole world, dominating it (some might say overshadowing it) and owning it.
Water in this structure also bears an important symbolic and spiritual meaning. Emanating from the top of the pyramid, water slowly trickles down each layer to finally end up on the map of the world. Water, a representation of divine wisdom, starts by gracing the top of the pyramid, which represents the “illuminated”, the elite of the world. From the capstone, water descends from one layer to another, “feeding” each Masonic degree with its share of wisdom. The symbolic end result is that the entire world is filled with (or drowning in, depending on the point of view) this knowledge.
When viewed in kabbalistic terms, water flowing through thirteen layers or “channels” is a reference to Mem, the Fountain of Wisdom.
[The below has nothing to do with the real Moses nor the first five books of the Bible known as the Torah of Moses, but are heretical inventions of the Apostate Rabbis.]
“Just as the waters of a physical fountain (spring) ascend from their unknown subterranean source (the secret of the abyss in the account of Creation) to reveal themselves on earth, so does the fountain of wisdom express the power of flow from the superconscious source. In the terminology of Kabbalah, this flow is from Keter (“crown”) to Chochmah (“wisdom”). The stream is symbolized in Proverbs as “the flowing stream, the source of wisdom.”
In particular, we are taught that there are thirteen channels of flow from the superconscious source to the beginning of consciousness. These channels correspond to the Thirteen Attributes of Mercy revealed to Moses at Sinai, as well as to the thirteen principles of Torah exegesis, the (superrational) “logic” of Torah.”
The Mysteries of Mithras
Though the Mysteries of the Mithras that came to pervade the Roman world were purportedly of Magian origin, the role of the House of Herod in its formation suggests a possible origin for the evident relationship that exists between them and the emerging form of early Jewish Kabbalah, known as Merkabah mysticism. An important source for the early penetration of these ideas, and which would continue to play an central role in the of dissemination of “Eastern” occult influences to the Western world, through to the time of the Crusades, and finally, the links between European secret societies and Islamic terrorism in our time, would be Egypt.Although Rome came to dominate the scene politically, it was the city of Alexandria in Egypt, that would continue to dominate culturally. Due to the numerous cultures that congregated in the city, whether Egyptian, Greek, Persian, Indian or Jewish, new esoteric creeds were formulated based on older traditions. These various schools held in common a type of mysticism, which some scholars term Gnosticism. More correctly, these variations represented aspects of a single school, that is, Kabbalah, exercised through the influence of the substantial Jewish community that existed in the city. As Franz Cumont remarked, a great number of Jewish colonies were scattered everywhere on the Mediterranean, and “the Jews, who were acquainted with the arcana of the Irano-Chaldean doctrines and proceedings, made some of the recipes known wherever the dispersion brought them.”
