I will only comment on the Shepherds mentioned so prominently. As I said earlier, the priestesses of Isis relied on lambs for their sacrifices. You can rest assured that when news of the impending birth of Jesus spread to the various temples, that there were quite a few orders placed for lambs. The star again is a DOMA warship; the angel a messenger from the DOMA. They, just as everyone else who knew, were very happy at Jesus' birth. These then, are the birth narratives. They each give clues for us to use in our search for the truth. But there is much more to come. The early life history of Jesus has been shrouded in mystery. There are many tales of him traveling to other lands. Of these, there is only one for which there is Biblical documentation. Matthew 2:13 3And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.2 Here is a very valuable clue. This angel tells them to seek safety in Egypt. Why Egypt? Isis still had a strong influence there. Jesus would be protected and educated by the priestesses of Isis. The priestesses would not be Jesus' only teachers. The DOMA themselves, taught him. They taught him about religion and all that had been done before his arrival. They taught him about Earth and the stars. They taught him about the Collective and of races who exist on other worlds. He knew who and what they were, but more importantly, he knew who and what he was. His education continued, even when he and his mother returned to Judea. Soon, it would be time to begin teaching what he knew to the people. Before this happened, there were two significant events we must look at. The first is the following. Matthew 3:16 3And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him...2 Mark 1:10 3And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him...2 Luke 3:22 3And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.2 John 1:32 3And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.2 I have included all references to the first event. I wanted to show you that, although there are significant differences between various writers9 versions of some events, they all agreed on the symbolism of the event. The dove is one of the most universal symbols of the Goddess. It is found in nearly all major religions both of the East and West. In India, there were seven Dove Goddesses, also called the Seven Razors (because of their ritual of circumcision). In the Orient, thye were known as the Seven Sisters. Their home is in the Pleiades constellation. In Greece, these same seven were called the Flock of Doves. They were known as the Seven Daughters of Aphrodite, or Venus. As Isis, she was called The Queen of Peace, or The Dove of Peace. Everywhere the 3dove2 has long been a symbol of the DOMA (whose seven leaders find the analogy very flattering). So, the Dove who came down from the heavens said Jesus was her son, and in him she was well pleased. The next event is probably the most important event in the life of Jesus, yet it is nearly always overshadowed by the Resurrection. It is almost never interpreted correctly, and therefore much of its importance is never revealed. Matthew 4:1 3Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2: And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. 3: And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5: Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6: And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7: Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8: Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;9: And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10: Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11: Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.2 This was a turning point in the life of Jesus, son of Mary. The DOMA had taught him all they could. But there was one thing that all their advanced technology, and all their advanced learning, could not teach, nor determine. Did Jesus have the internal character necessary to fulfill the task that was expected of him? The above verses are the story of how the last lesson in Jesus9 education was given. A final test to determine his worthiness. Jesus knew who he was. It is important that you realize the full magnitude of what I have just said. Jesus knew who and what he was! He knew it was within his power, to take over the entire Earth, and rule it anyway he saw fit. There was no Earth government or military, that could have stood in his way. He knew that the DOMA would protect him from all harm. He could have had anything, riches power, slaves, women. There was nothing in this world, at that particular moment, that was beyond his reach. These are exactly the thoughts that went through his mind as he fasted in the desert. Inside of this great man, a battle was taking place. Every desire that could be conceived was but an arm9s length away, should he desire it. He thought of how the crowds would adore him, follow him, worship him. He could become a God, if he so chose. There was indeed, a devil who tempted Jesus that day. It is the same 3Satan2 that exists in each and every one of us on this planet, and tempts us in just the same way. It is the devil of our own desires, our own pride, our own lusts. The 3Satan2 that was defeated on this day, was the one of his own mind, his own desires. Jesus chose his path in life that day, and the man who could have had everything, became the man who would give everything. . . to humanity. In that moment, if someone had come back in time from far in the future, and said to Jesus "all that you did only resulted in one persons9 life being helped," Jesus would have looked them straight in the eye and said "it was all worth it.2 The DOMA gained something that day also. This man called Jesus was living proof that humans on Earth could overcome the devils of their own minds, and take the next step in their evolution, becoming true human beings. Is it any wonder that the Dove should look down from the skies at her son, and in him be well pleased? The education of Jesus was now complete, the testing over. He got an "A" for the course. Now, we are finally going to talk about the adult Jesus. I know that it took us quite a will to reach this point, but it was vital for you to see the connection to Isis that existed in the Hebrew ancestry of this man. If I were to simply have come out and told Jesus worked for the DOMA, a.k.a. Ru HA, a.k.a. Ashera, a.k.a. Isis, without giving you the historical foundation, you would not believe all that I am about to tell you. So, without further delay, let's see what Jesus the son of Mary, was all about. Let's look at a brief summary of his life. He was born to a virgin. He taught a religion known as The Way. He did a lot of miraculous stuff, healings, walking on water, raising the dead, etc. He was tried and convicted of rebellion. He was crucified and died. He rose from the dead and was seen by his followers. Wow! Now, that was some life, was it not? You might think that the rest of this message will deal with the philosophy that Jesus taught. That I will go through his major teachings and explain or expand on them. I won9t be doing that. The teachings of Jesus are there in the Bible for all to read. In future Way messages, we will look at some of them, but not now. What I want to show you now, is who and what gave this man the power to do all that he did. I want to show you who started Jesus' church, who his disciples really were. And most important of all, determine once and for all, if he really was not just the son of God, but 3God himself.2 Notice I just used the male qualifier to identify God. I have already told you my opinion on whether God is male or female. What I want to do in the rest of this message is find out if, indeed, the person who sent Jesus was a male or female deity, or even a deity at all. By the time I get through, I want to have proven the following to you. That the God who sent Jesus was not a male, and further was not even a deity. (Even though she wasn't a deity, her intentions were to bring mankind the word of God) That it was the DOMA who sent Jesus. That it was a female-based religion, complete with priestesses, virgins, etc. That the disciples of Jesus were all women. And that his movement was founded by, run by, protected by, funded by, and directed by, the priestesses of Ashera, or Isis. Lastly, I want to show you that he was a man, a very special and holy prophet of God. Nevertheless, he was a man, and not a God. Some of you who are totally dedicated to your faith as you have been taught it, will not believe any of this no matter what proofs I give you. That's okay. I support whatever you want to believe, and your right to do so. Besides you9re not really the main target of this message anyway. The main target, or group of people, I and she who sent me, want to reach are the Daughters of Earth. There are great things in store for them, and this is merely their wake-up call. Now let's get to work. Was Jesus God? That's a fair question. A simple question. If true, then it should have an equally simple answer. I won't accept the answer from anybody who says they knew him, or anybody who says God told them. I want to hear it from his own mouth, and in his own words. Let's ask him right now. Let's get this settled right from the start. Matthew 19:17 3And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.2 Mark 10:18 3And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.2 Luke 18:19 3And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.2 These are supposed to be Jesus' own words. As you can see, I have included all three variations, from the three separate writers. You will note that all three agree on what was said, agree on what Jesus himself told you. Jesus has just been asked by a man about the requirements to obtain eternal life. Good question, is it not? He addressed Jesus as "GOOD MASTER.2 Now, my friends, I told you that Jesus knew exactly who and what he was. He knew that men would eventually mistakenly try to idolize him, to worship him. He tried in this verse to set the record straight right from the start. He had been teaching that ALL MANKIND were sinners, or not wholly good. That no matter how holy, or wise, each and everyone of us has some portion of bad in us. He said that there was only one force in this universe that contained no evil or darkness, and that was the great spirit, or God. It is only natural that when this man called Jesus good, he immediately corrected him by saying "why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." This says it in plain, easy to understand language, does it not? I have heard people try to interpret this in many different ways. They twist it, and sugar-coat it, and do everything within their power, to change its meaning to fit their own belief. Its meaning is clear, as Jesus intended it to be. He, as a man, was not good. Only God was good. Simple, to the point, and without question, his own opinion of this question. His answer to you for all time as to whether he was a man, or God. There are none good, but ONE. God. There are none so blind as those who will not see. One last point about his answer. Remember that the question was about how to obtain eternal life. Did Jesus answer him, 3believe I am GOD?2 Did he say, 3believe that I died on the cross for your sins?2 Did he say worship me and only me? NO! And NO! And NO! Don't you think, that if the above statements were true, he would have said so? He did not. All he said was necessary, was to obey the Commandments, the Word of God. He was not God, and said so himself. He said so plainly, and yet many wouldn't listen. How do you think he feels to look down at the Earth over all these years since leaving, and see all the people who were murdered, in his name, for simply believing what he himself had said? That he was not God. Every one of you is a daughter, or son, of God. The DOMA, all humans, and others of the Collective, are the Children of God. The Muslim, the Catholic, the Hindu, even the man on death row, these are all the Children of God. Was Jesus the son of God? Yes, as are we all. Was Jesus God? Yes, as God is all things, God is everything that was, is , and will be. God is all of us, but no one of us is God, contained, confined, diminished. It is the truest and greatest irony that the children who bare his name should cause him the most pain and anguish. I will leave this topic and its final word to Jesus. To him, the final say. . . Matthew 7:21 3Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.2 Who were the disciples of Jesus? Was it as we have been taught? Twelve ordinary men? Were the closest to him all men? No. In fact, his true disciples were ALL women. There were men that followed him, but they were not in the inner circle. The ones closest to him, his disciples, his financial supporters, those he truly loved, his favorites, were all women. Why? Because as I have shown you, he was raised and taught by the priestesses. His teachings were founded on the belief of a Goddess-centered religion. These women, or priestesses, went with him everywhere. They founded and supported Jesus and The Way. Women, and the DOMA who helped them, founded the religion we know today as Christianity. But that which we call Christianity today, has little in common with the original Way, the religion of the Goddess, the religion Jesus taught. I want to show you some verses now that will prove to you all I've said. I have already given you the 3dove2 story. So, there should be no doubt of who sent Jesus. It was the Dove, the Goddess, the DOMA. But what of the priestesses? Who were these women and what part did they play in his life? Let's find out. The rest of this Way message has true importance to all the women of this planet, and it is to them, dedicated. Luke 8:1 3And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, 2: And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, 3: And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.2 Jesus is now traveling around, teaching. In the above verse, it says that he had twelve disciples. We have been taught that these twelve were all men, and that is true. They were trained to spread the word of God by Jesus himself. Why were they all men? Because the society to which they were sent, was male-dominated. A woman would not have been able to go where these disciples needed to go. But, so that no one would be able to use this as a weapon to further patriarchal control, their number was set at twelve. It is a code of sorts whose meaning is made to identify who really sent them. There were twelve disciples and one teacher. In all there were Thirteen, the Holy number of Isis. What is really important in the above verses is the mention of "certain women.2 These women, as you will soon find out, were the priestesses of Isis, the DOMA, the Daughters of Earth. The story of the women who followed Jesus around the Holy Land, is one of the greatest secrets contained in the Bible. It is a story of intrigue, romance, betrayal, murder , salvation, religion and the word of God. It is one of the most fascinating of all stories, to say the least. Because of what you have been taught concerning these women's roles, and the low status that women were later to be held in, the real truth of the influence they had on these events, has never fully been understood. Let's change all that right now. I already showed you in the genealogy of Jesus, how the DOMA made use of their priestesses to change the course of Biblical history. Nowhere was this done moreso than during the life of Jesus. Most of us think of the women who accompanied him to be poor, virtuous women, who mildly stood in the shadow of this great man. At leastm, that's what the good old patriarchal fathers want you to believe. The truth is, that they were running the entire show. The truth is, they were women of high nobility, power and wealth. After all, they were the priestesses of what was then, one of the most powerful religions in the world. Still, the image we have is of sterile women, wrapped tightly from head to toe in the robes of chastity. This is the image that the early church fathers wanted you to have. Remember that the early fathers were not really sure if females were really human or not. I'm not joking about this either. I suggest you read some of their early literature. Their opinion of women will become abundantly clear. So, who were these women that Jesus spent so much time with? To start with, his mother was a priestess (a daughter of the Moses, or a daughter of Aaron), her mother was the high priestess Anna, who lived at the temple in Jerusalem. In terms of religious hierarchy, this would put her at the near-royal level. Let's look at the other women who were with Jesus. Luke 23:27 3And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28: But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29: For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30: Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31: For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?2 In these verses, Jesus is on his way to be executed. A large crowd of followers are with him. Notice that it says "people" to talk about the crowd, but further breaks this down by adding "and of women." Now think about this, my friends. The 3people2 were composed of men and women. What made this particular group of women so special, that they had to be distinguished from the women in the 3people2 group? The reason is simple. They were Jesus' disciples, the priestesses. Now, I want to demonstrate another example of how the early fathers changed the meaning of certain words when they translated the Bible. You9re going to love this one. The original word from which "women" was translated is the Greek word "gunes," pronounced goo-nays. It means 3wives.2 In the Goddess religion, it is often the duty of the High Priest, in this case Jesus, to be the symbolic husband of the Goddess, and also the priestesses. So, it is clear to see that the original clergy of Jesus, were women priestesses, not manly priests. The priests stole this role from these women. That is why the church call9s itself the "bride" of Christ, and its priests, as symbolized by their rings, are Jesus' 3wives.2 Sort of pseudo-spiritual homosexuality. Now, here's a secret that the DOMA have been waiting a long time to drop on you. Remember the fish symbol I told you about, what we call Pisces? It's called the 3sign of NUN,2 or the 3fish of Isis.2 The original priestesses who served Christ are still here today. They were simply absorbed, and then subordinated to a lower position in the Church. They are called NUNS. They are those among the Nuns who remember who they were. It is their secret, of which not even the Pope is privy. To further my point, who is it that Jesus addresses in the above verses? Does he say, 3listen my fellow manly, men-type disciples?2 No. He says "Daughters." The Daughter of Jerusalem, the Daughters of the Queen of Peace. Isn't this great stuff? If you9re a woman, yes. If you9re a cardinal, well. . . . They had their chance with Fatima. Okay. Now that we have established who the real disciples of Jesus were, let's look at the upper echelon of this priestesshood. The top ladies in Jesus' church of the Way. Matthew 27: 55 3And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him. 56: Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children. 57: When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple.2 There are two special women, whose association with Jesus has been talked about, argued about, denied about, lied about, and most of all wondered about. The above verse introduces the first of these two women. Mary Magdalene. She is one of the big three. Mary his mother, Mary Magdalene, and. . . . ? Well we'll save the last one. I want it to be a surprise. Mary Magdalene is the most hated woman on the face of this planet. Who hated her? The early church fathers and some of the priests today. Why? Simple. She was Jesus' girlfriend. What!!? You don't believe me, do you? After all that I've shown you , you still don't believe me when I say something like this. It's okay. I want you to doubt and question everything I, or anyone else says. I, unlike the priests whom I speak of, don't demand your blind faith, Just your ear and an open mind. Let's explore this in more detail now. Before we begin, realize that Mary Magdalene was loved deeply by Jesus. She was his favorite disciple, his beloved. John 19:25: 3Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26: When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!27: Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.2 The 3disciple whom he loved!2 Who is he talking to here? Mary Magdalene, his favorite disciple. He is asking her to look after his mother after he is gone. Notice a little more of the founding fathers handiwork? It says, Mary was taken "unto HIS home." Now, which of these three Mary's was really a man in disguise? Right you are. They changed it to hide Jesus' love for this disciple. John 21:20: 3Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?2 Who is the disciple following, and why did this disciple place their head on Jesus' chest during supper? A very important fact to note, is that Peter, seeing this particular disciple behind him, still asks Jesus who the traitor is. This implies that this disciple was above suspicion. Now, . . . . who could it be. . . . hmmm? Let's try a little something here. I want you to picture the scene in your mind. It's the last supper and gathered in this room and seated around the table are all these men. These are very manly type men, too. Now pick one. It doesn't matter which one. Let's say Mark. Now picture these men all sitting around eating except for Mark, who is so upset he slides up next to Jesus and, leaning his large hairy face on Jesus' chest, begins to cry softly. Not a very pretty picture, is it? Try this one on for size. Substitute Mary Magdalene as the one with her head on his chest, softly crying. Is it any wonder then, when Peter sees her following behind Jesus, as many women of the time did, that he would automatically rule her out as the traitor? Of course he would. In his own words, he said Jesus loved her. And you had better believe that she loved him. I told you the early fathers hated her. Do you now see why? So, who was this woman who wielded so much power over Jesus' heart and the lives of his disciples? Let's find out right now. Mark 16:9: 3Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.2 WOW! Seven whole devils! It must have been a bit crowded in there, wouldn9t you say? Before I explain to you what this means, look at what this verse really is telling you. Jesus has been put to death and is now risen. If you were a man, and you had somebody you loved , a woman, maybe your wife, who, if you were brought back to life, would you go see first? Jesus came to her first, because he loved her. Why would so many have such a problem with this beautiful moment in the lives of these two people? I guess it does kind of rub the whole 3Jesus is God2 argument the wrong way, doesn't it? After all, this man is supposed to be God himself. How could he defile himself so, and with a harlot like Mary Magdalene? If they only knew.
