We left our last article just scratching the surface of our look at angels, let us now delve a little deeper. We know the difference between a regular angel
and an archangel,
and we know that either could arrive by what can only be mechanical means. Some call Cherubim angels, you know, those things that were mounted on the Ark of the Covenant. This seems to be something of a misnomer, a document from the third century A.D. entitled “The Origin”, describes the immortal Sophia and the ruler Saboath creating a great throne on a four faced chariot called Cherubim… and on that throne he created some other dragon shaped seraphims.
Genesis 3:24 says that the lord stationed cherubims (chariots or mobile thrones) and a sword of fire to protect the Garden of Eden. In a Greek work called The Hypostasis of the Archons, it deals with the rulers of entirety and the creation of Adam, it too calls a heavenly chariot a cherubim. 2 Kings 2:11 says Elijah is taken up in a chariot of fire, so too is described in the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. So what we can ascertain from this is, cherubim and their auxiliaries seraphim have never been described as human, as angels have been. In all honesty, it was the fearful Roman establishment that transformed the cherubims and seraphims into adoring celestial putti.
Without exception, all the angels in the New Testament were male and their appointments to angelic office were strictly dynastic. The Book of Enoch was written in the second century B. C., it forecast the restoration of the Messianic dynasties, and laid down ground rules for the structure of the priestly hierarchy. Included was the premise that successive dynastic heads should carry the names of the traditional angels and archangels to denote rank and position.
In the days of King David, the senior priests in order of precedence were Zadok, Abiathar, and Levi, the Essenes at Qumran preserved their priestly heritage by using using those names as titles, badges of rank, the Zadok dynast was also Michael, the Abiathar was Gabriel, and Levi, was Sariel. With this in mind, it changes how we look at Archangel Michael’s battle with the dragon in Revelation 12:7, we can now see that it corresponds to the conflict between the Zadokite succession and the beast of blasphemy – imperial Rome. The second beast is that of the rigidly strict regime of the Pharisees who thwarted the ambitions of the Hellenist Jews by segregating Jews from gentiles. This is the beast to which is attributed the number 666, Revelation 13:8 which is the numerically evaluated polar opposite to the spiritual energy of water in the solar force – kundalini.
Priests of the high orders were required to remain celibate, trainee priests were therefore in limited supply and were often raised within a monastic system from within the communities illegitimate sons. Because of Jesus’s date of birth, and the controversy surrounding it, he could have very well been raised in the same manner. Conversely, the dynastic heads of both Kingly and priestly successions were required to marry to perpetuate their lines. If for instance the Zadok wanted to have children, he would suspend himself from his priestly duties and turn them over to another, then when those conjugal urges where done, he would then return to his duties as a celibate.
The Zadok Michael in the early gospels was Zacharias, Elizabeth’s husband, his priestly deputy was the Abiathar/ Gabriel Simeon. Zack’s conjugal visit is very veiled in Luke 1:15-23, his being speechless in the temple meant that he could not speak in his professional capacity. The child that resulted from their union was John the Baptist, who in time succeeded as the Zadokite head.
The head of the Levi priests during Jesus’s early ministry was Jonathan Annas. As head of the Levite dynasty he held the third archangelic rank of Sariel, as such he was the King’s priest. There were other supreme archangels, Michael the Zadok, Gabriel the Abiathar, Sariel the Levi, as well as a few more who were not dynastic, they were known as, Father, Son, and Spirit. The Father was the equivalent of the Roman Pope – Papa – Father. The Roman church having stolen the term from it’s original Jewish source. The position of Father was elective which precluded that title holder from certain other duties. An example is, when Jonathan Annas became the Father, his brother Mathew (the apostle) became his successor as head of the Levite priests, and so Mathew became the Levi of Alphaeus.
The Levites acted as subordinates to the archangels, at their head but junior to the Levi dynast was a chief priest, a bit different from a high priest. He was designated angelically as Raphael. His senior priests were styled in accordance with the original sons of Levi Genesis 29:34 and were named Kohath, Gershon, and Merari. The next priest in seniority was Amram, Moses, and the priestess Miriam. They were senior to Nabad, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithmar – the representative sons of Aaron.
It is at this point that primary aspects of the Grail Code begins to emerge. The heir to the Davidic kingly line held no angelic title, and was not in priestly service. The King’s express duty was/is to serve the people, and to champion them against establishment injustices. The name David means beloved, as a beloved servitor and champion of his people Jesus would have made a fine king. One of Jesus’s problems was that the lay people could not appreciate his humble code of service as demonstrated in John 13:4-11. Such a charitable action is not the mark of a power seeking dynast, but is a shining example of a type of common fatherhood in the nature of true Grail kingship.
The gospels can not be read as Historically accurate, they tell the story of Jesus as a kind of narrative, sometimes that narrative agrees with other gospels and sometimes not. Either way, Jesus was the focal point of the message. However, not all of those messages were for everyone’s ears, as we have seen. Sometimes Jesus went to great lengths to hide his messages in plain sight, just as he hid his angels in plain sight. Jesus spoke in parables, simplifying his message with allegorical talks that basically painted pictures so that his words would be more easily understood. The majority of Jesus’s activities were cleverly disguised within the context of diversionary stories, so that those with ears to hear would understand, and those without, not. Clearly the church has never understood their deified human and his true message.
The Gospels contain numerous symbolic elements that have distorted their understanding to this day. These distortions have turned into the accepted church dogma of today. We have already encountered one such distortion, the fishers of men, another is in John 2:1-10 the water to wine incident at Cana. This was Jesus’s and the Magdalene’s wedding, Jesus had been brought up in the strict environment of the Essene community, nevertheless he realized that Rome could not be defeated while extremes of competitive doctrines existed within the Jewish community as a whole. Remember that Christianity had not yet been created during his lifetime, he was a Jew and his religion was Judaism, and all Jews worshipped El Shaddai/Enlil. Jesus aspired to share the Jewish God with Gentiles because he needed allies.
Jesus was a Hellenist – westernized, and although the Baptist had baptized him, he did not share his views. Jesus had little or no patience for religious factions like the Pharisees, he had one mission and that was liberation. He knew that his people could not be freed from their oppressors until until they had freed themselves from their own sectarianism. He also knew that that the prophesied Messiah was due at that time, and was expected to usher in a new era of deliverance, and as the heir to the Royal Davidic Bloodline, he was the man to do it and that should surprise no one.
At his wedding at Cana, it’s interesting that he hesitated, saying that “mine hour is not yet come”, this refers to the fact that he was not yet anointed. His mother Mary waived his lack of entitlement aside and told the servants to “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it”. The water into wine only appears in the Gospel of John, and it is supposed to be the first of his “miracles”. As the church so often misquotes it, it is not they ran out of wine at the wedding, the text really says, “And when they wanted wine the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine”. The Dead Sea Scrolls tell us that only fully initiated celibates presided over by a priest were allowed to partake of wine. All others were regarded as unsanctified and were restricted to a purifying ritual with water, these included married men, novices, gentiles, and all lay Jews. The Gospel continues, “There were six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews”. The thing of it that made the event so special is this, Jesus ignored normal tradition and allowed “unclean” outsiders to partake of the wine because what was really happening here was, communion. Most people believe that communion is a church ritual, it is not, it is a ritual that is an age old tradition with the Essenes and was appropriated by the church.
