The Pagan “Trinity”

 

The Pagan “Trinity” – Overview

The pagan god worshipped in The Mystery Religion of Babylon was a triune god made up of Father/Son/Mother of God.    We see this abomination as a constant theme not only among pagan religions but also condemned in The Bible as YHVH is not a triune god but the one and only living God.  It is the worship of this triune “Trinity” representation of gods that apposes the God in The Bible as YHVH declares “you shall have no other gods before me”… “Before me” is the English translation of the Hebrew words “in my face”.  The same expression used of Nimrod who was described as a “mighty hunter before YHVH’ or rather a “mighty hunter in the face of YHVH” implying rebellion against God.  So we are to “have no other gods in YHVH’s face!”

NOTE:  The declaration that YHVH is ONE not a Trinity is the central theme in the True Faith of every man of God in the Bible, including The Messiah.  This knowledge of YHVH being the one and only Creator and God is the very “mark” on the forehead of the Elect called “The Shema” that marks the very elect for eternal life.  When Yahusha (the True Messiah) was asked the single greatest commandment of God, he quoted The Shema (Shema means “hear” in Hebrew) by quoting literally from The Torah:

Mark 12:29

"The most important one," answered Yahusha, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, YHVH our God, YHVH is one.

Yahusha was quoting Deuteronomy 6:4 verbatim.  This passage of Deuteronomy is also defined as the “mark between our eyes and on our right hands”.  It IS the “mark of YHVH” that sets us apart from this “false religion” whose mark is literally The Trinity made on the foreheads of newly baptized babied and over the hearts of literally billions every day as they make “the sign of the cross” in the name of The Trinity.  I’ll get to this too in great detail.

The declaration known as The Shema and declared by The Messiah as THE greatest command of all… is a direct contradiction of The Trinity!  The Shema is, in fact, the very “Mark of God” apposing the “Mark” of the beastly religious system of Babylon… which is The Trinity.  This “mark” of God displayed by The Messiah and expressed as the single greatest command as we see below is an outright denial of the pagan Trinity gods:

Deuteronomy 6

4 Hear, O Israel: YHVH our God, YHVH is one. 5 Love YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols (mark) on your hands and bind them (mark) on your foreheads.

The true Messiah Yahusha again demonstrated this singular knowledge of YHVH is the foundation of eternal life.  For He is the giver of life and to receive that life you must be in covenant with YHVH through the Yahushaic Covenant:

John 17:3

3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You (YHVH), the only true God, and (then there is) Yahusha (the) Messiah whom You (YHVH) have sent (as the Passover sacrifice for sin).

We also see this same triune god is a consistent them in every pagan religion which evolved from the Mystery Religion of Babylon.  This religion of Satan cleverly apposes the Mark of YHVH in the minds (mark of the forehead is a metaphor for knowledge) with what is called The Mark of the Beast.  Let us take a look at The Trinity as it evolved over time throughout almost every culture.  Before we begin, let us define the concept of a triune god.

 

The History of the “Pagan Trinity”

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_deity

Triple deity

A triple deity (sometimes referred to as threefold, tripled, triplicate, tripartite, triune or triadic) is a deity associated with the number three. Such deities are common throughout world mythology; the number three has a long history of mythical associations. C. G. Jung considered the arrangement of deities into triplets an archetype in the history of religion.

The deities and legendary creatures of this nature typically fit into one of the following general categories:

·        triadic ("forming a group of three"): a triad, three entities inter-related in some way (life, death, rebirth, for example, or triplet children of a deity) and always or usually associated with one another or appearing together;

·        triune ("three-in-one, one-in-three"): a being with three aspects or manifestations;

·        tripartite ("of triple parts"): a being with three body parts where there would normally be one (three heads, three pairs of arms, and so on); or

·        triplicate-associated ("relating to three corresponding instances"): a being in association with a trio of things of the same nature which are symbolic or through which power is wielded (three magic birds, etc.)

Now let us take a journey throughout history as The Trinity evolved as THE GOD of almost every pagan religion in opposition to YHVH, the ONLY TRUE GOD.  As we see The Messiah Yahusha speaking to his Heavenly Father, YHVH in John 17:3 declare this simple truth and that truth is where salvation is found:

John 17:3

3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you (Yahuah), the only true God, and (your) Messiah Yahusha, whom you have sent.

Again, when asked the single greatest commandment in the entire Bible, Yahusha clearly contradicted the “pagan Trinity” in Mark 12:28-34 the Messiah correctly answered the “teachers of The Law” with what is known as “The Shema” which is the “Seal of God” on your forehead…  Yahusha quoted directly from Deuteronomy 12:

Mark 12:28-34

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Yahusha had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

29 The most important one,” answered Yahusha, is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: Yahwweh our God, Yahuah is (the) one (and only God).[a] 30 Love Yahuah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

So much for “the Trinity”… that is how pagans worship their gods, not how the men in the Bible including The Messiah worshipped YHVH.  Let’s take a look at every pagan religion and their “Trinity’ gods.

 

Ø  The Egyptian Trinity

 
    Isis, Horus, Seb (IHS)

NOTE:  I.H.S. is the monogram of Jesus H. Christ or “IsisHorusSeb”.  The Egyptian Trinity of Isis, Horus, Seb (Egyptian names for Baal, Ishtar, Tammuz) … Source: The Outline of History, by H. G. Wells. page 307

The trinity consisted of the god Serapis (=Osiris+Apis), the goddess Isis (=Hathor, the cow-moon goddess), and the child-god Horus. In one way or another almost every other god was identified with one or other of these three aspects of the one god, even the sun god Mithras of the Persians. And they were each other; they were three, but they were also one.  The origin beginning with Baal, Ishtar, Tammuz of the ancient Babylonian Religion.

Many of the theories of Egyptian religion, modified and transformed no doubt, have penetrated into the theology of Christian Europe, and form, as it were, part of the woof in the web of modern religious thought. Christian theology was largely organized and nurtured in the schools of Alexandria, and Alexandria was not only the meeting place of East and West, it was also the place where the decrepit theology of Egypt was revivified by contact with the speculative philosophy of Greece. Perhaps, however, the indebtedness of Christian theological theory to ancient Egyptian dogma is nowhere more striking than in the doctrine of the Trinity. The very terms used of it by Christian theologians meet us again in the inscriptions and papyri of Egypt. Originally the trinity was a triad like those we find in Babylonian mythology. The triad consisted of a divine father, wife, and son. The father became the son and the son the father through all time, and of both alike the mother was but another form.  This triune god was later formulated into Christianity as the Christian Trinity of father, son, holy ghost.
 

Ø  The Hecate Trinity

The Hecate Trinity ( and the Statue of Liberty)…

The Hecate Trinity was also associated with Diana. At her sacred grove at Aricia, on the shores of Lake Nemi a triplefold Diana was venerated from the late sixth century BCE as Diana Nemorensis. "The Latin Diana was conceived as a threefold unity of the divine huntress, the Moon goddess, and the goddess of the nether world, Hekate," Albert Alföldi interpreted the late Republican numismatic image, noting that Diana montium custos nemoremque virgo ("keeper of the mountains and virgin of Nemi") is addressed by Horace as diva triformis ("three-form goddess"). Diana is commonly addressed as Trivia by Virgil and Catullus.

As a virgin goddess, she remained unmarried and had no regular consort. Hecate has survived in folklore as a 'hag' figure associated with witchcraft. Strmiska notes that Hecate, conflated with the figure of Diana, appears in late antiquity and in the early medieval period as part of an "emerging legend complex" associated with gatherings of women, the moon, and witchcraft that eventually became established "in the area of Northern Italy, southern Germany, and the western Balkans." This theory of the Roman origins of many European folk traditions related to Diana or Hecate was explicitly advanced at least as early as 1807. The Statue of Liberty is based on The Roman Goddess Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom. Originally as goddess of personal freedom, she later became the goddess of the Roman commonwealth.

Greek equivalent: Ishtar (Babylonian Semiramis) fertility goddess of Easter (pictured below) is the Akkadian counterpart to the Sumerian Inanna and to the cognate northwest Semitic goddess `Ashtart. Anunit, Astarte and Atarsamain,The goddess of fertility and sexuality. The Babylonian fertility goddess Ishtar (Easter in English) is portrayed as a trinitarian god with Baal the Sun God/Tammuz the Sun of God/Ishtar the Queen of Heaven... this is where we get the Christian Trinity as incorporated into the "Christian Church" by the sun worshipping emperor Constantine at the Council of Niceae.

In celebration of the centenary of the first Masonic Republic in 1884, the Statue of Liberty was presented to the Masons of America, as a gift from the French Grand Orient Temple Masons. The Statue of Liberty nothing more than a pagan trinity goddess.

The Masonic "Torch of Enlightenment" was also referred to as the "Flaming Torch of Reason", by the Illuminati Masons in the 1700's and in 1884, the cornerstone for the Statue of Liberty was placed in a solemn ceremony, by the Masonic lodges of New York.  Below is the cornerstone of the Statue of Liberty, dedicated to and by Freemasons.  Below is the inscription dedicating the Statue of Liberty (Ishtar) by the Masonic Lodge who worship the founder of Masonry… Nimrod

 

Ø  Brigit –Irish Trinity

Brigit – A “Christopagan” era Irish Trinity – The Celebration of Groundhog Day in the honor of the goddess Brigit and Catholic Nuns

Irish Catholic St. Brigit edallion. The goddess of the flame to the ancient Celts, she has survived into our time as “St. Bridget” in the Irish catholic church. To this day her ‘eternal flame’ burns in Kildare, Ireland and her ancient sacred wells are still revered and visited. It is believed by pagan Catholics that Brigit, Lady of the Fairies – watches over their sacred green places and, if you look into her Magickal Mirror, you can see the Faerie Realm. Here she is presented as a cloverleaf Trinity.

Brigit is known by various names, Brigit being the most ancient form. The name variations are: Brighid, Bride (Scottish), Brid, Brigit, Bridget, Brigantia (English), Brigan, Brigindo (Gaul) and Brigandu. Her name derives from her worship by the pre-christian Brigantes, who honored her as identical with Juno, Queen of Heaven.  Brigit was just another incarnation of Semiramis/Ishtar and the eternal flame. Into the 18th Century, her sacred flame was tended, at first, by priestesses, who later became catholic nuns, when the pagan shrine became a convent, at Kildare, Ireland. These nineteen virgin priestesses (called nuns by the catholic church) were called ‘Daughters of the Flame’. No man was ever allowed near. In fact, these women had other women in the village bring them their necessary supplies so they wouldn’t have to deal with men.

Imbolc (Candlemas and Groundhog Day), the Celtic spring festival, honors Brigit. The Druids called this sacred holiday Oimelc, meaning “ewe’s milk”. Held on February 1st or 2nd, it celebrated the birthing and freshening of sheep and goats. The catholic version of Imbolc (Candlemas), also, involves much elaborate rituals and feasting, and to this very day, many Irish homes have a St Brigit’s cross for protection, still made from rushes as in days of old.

Ø  Geryon Greek Trinity

Geryon the 3 Headed God of Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, Geryon (Ancient Greek: Γηρυών; gen.: Γηρυόνος), son of Chrysaor and Callirrhoe and grandson of Medusa, was a fearsome giant who dwelt on the island Erytheia of the mythic Hesperides in the far west of the Mediterranean. A more literal-minded later generation of Greeks associated the region with Tartessos in southern Iberia.

Geryon was often described as a monster with human faces. According to Hesiod,X Geryon had one body and three heads, whereas the tradition followed by Aeschylus gave him three bodies.  As seen in the picture on the left, Geryon was a "Trinity" having 3 bodies, 3 heads, and 3 shields.

 

Ø  Cerberus - Greek and Roman Trinity

 

Trinity God Cerberus of Greek and Roman Mythology

Cerberus (pronounced /ˈsɜrbərəs/), or Kerberos, (Greek form: Κέρβερος, [ˈkerberos]) in Greek and Roman mythology, is a multi-headed hound (usually three-headed) which guards the gates of Hades, to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping. Cerberus featured in many works of ancient Greek and Roman literature and in works of both ancient and modern art and architecture, although, the depiction and background surrounding Cerberus often differed across various works by different authors of the era. The most notable difference is the number of its heads: Most sources describe or depict three heads.

The name "Cerberus" is a Latinized version of the Greek Kerberos, which may be related to the Sanskrit word सर्वरा "sarvarā", used as an epithet of one of the dogs of Yama, from a Proto-Indo-European word *ḱerberos, meaning "spotted"[5] (This etymology suffers from the fact that it includes a reconstructed *b, which is extremely rare in Proto-Indo-European. Yet according to Pokorny it is well distributed, with additional apparent cognates in Slavic, British and Lithuanian). The use of a dog is uncertain, although mythologists have speculated that the association was first made in the city of Trikarenos in Phliasia. Cerberus is said to be the sibling of the Lernaean Hydra, the Nemean Lion, the Sphinx, the Ladon, and the Chimera.

 

Ø  The Hindu Trinity

 

The Hindu Trinity

Idol worship and rituals are at the heart of Hinduism and have tremendous religious significance. All Hindu deities are themselves symbols of the abstract Absolute, and point to a particular aspect of the Brahman. The Hindu Trinity (Trimurti) is represented by three godheads: Brahma - the creator, Vishnu - the protector and Shiva - the destroyer.

The Hindu trinity is of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. They are respectively the creator, preserver and destroyer of the universe. They are also aligned as the transcendent Godhead, Shiva, the cosmic lord, Vishnu and the cosmic mind, Brahma. In this regard they are called Sat-Tat-Aum, the Being, the Thatness or immanence and the Word or holy spirit. This is much like the Christian trinity of God as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The trinity represents the Divine in its threefold nature and function. Each aspect of the trinity contains and includes the others.
 

Ø  The Viking Trinity

 

The Viking Trinity

According to Adam of Bremen: "If plague and famine threatens, a libation is poured to the idol Thor; if war, to Odin; if marriages are to be celebrated, to Frey." Because Odin, the All-Father, was generally more feared than loved and subsequently kept at a distance, his son, Thor, assumed the position as favored deity. He was the protector and trusted friend. Some myths associated with Thor had him as almost human, with his foibles and gullibility. His hammer came to be used as an amulet, not only to signify the wearers allegiance to the old faith, but also as protection against the evils abounding. Odin and Thor were the most prominent members of the militaristic Æsir family. Frey, god of fertility and fecundity, led the Vanir family, the early opponents of the Æsir. However, a truce between them brought Frey to Valhalla and elevated his status to be one of the Norse trinity. With the conversion to Christianity, the Norse trinity, although driven underground by the Christian church, nevertheless, remained significantly conspicuous, albeit in changed form.

Scandinavian/Viking kings could easily be depicted as representations of the earlier pagan deities without the authorities of the Roman Church being any the wiser. In the same way that an anonymous woodcarver craftsman working on the Borgund Stave Church in western Norway could put a representation of the one-eyed Odin on the top of a column in the dark upper reaches of the sanctuary, so too could an artisan represent the pagan gods as medieval kings and/or saints. Consequently, with his axe, St. Olaf came to be associated with Thor and his hammer. In the tapestry, however, there seems to be a mixing of deities, as St. Olaf with his axe represents not Thor, but the one-eyed Odin who is placed next to a representation of a tree, perhaps the Yggdrasil from which he had hung. In addition, King Knud, killed at the alter of St. Albans Church in Roskilde, Denmark, is placed in the middle, holding a Thor-like hammer (the crucifix?), while King Erik ( the fertility diety, Frey) flanks him on his right holding an ear of corn. This arrangement, with Thor in the middle, is similar to Adam of Bremen's description of the idols in the great temple at Uppsala where Thor is said to be flanked by Odin and Frey.
 

Ø  The Greek Trinity

The Greek Trinity

Greek Trinity of Zeus, Athena, and Apollo

In the Greek culture Zeus was the name for Nimrod, Athena for Semiramis, and Apollo for Tammuz.  This will become very important to our search for the Abomination of Desolation as I will clearly define.

Summary of the pagan worship of The Trinity

The list of The Trinity as the fundamental description of “god” in pagan religions is quite long and really outside the scope of this book, my point here is to illustrate three very important truths:

1.     There is no “Trinity” in the Bible, neither the word nor the concept.

2.     The Trinity is a direct contradiction of The Shema, the mark of YHVH.

3.     The Trinity is the fundamental description of EVERY PAGAN GOD…

I encourage everyone to research this topic on their own initiative.  Below is a short list of major pagan religions as the “Mystery Religion of Babylon” made its way across the globe after mankind was dispersed at the Tower of Babel.  The names of Baal (Nimrod), Ishtar (Semmiramis), and Tammuz changed in each language but the religious practices did not.

The main point I am making here with the concept of a pagan Trinity, is that the entire world and every religious system has been polluted by the worship of Sungod Baal (Nimrod), Moongoddess Ishtar (Semiramis), and Tammuz their only begotten son (who was Baal in the flesh) in the form of a Trinity.  The “Mystery” in the religion of Babylon was literally the “Mystery” of the Trinity.  Satan is literally the “god of this world” and his counter to the ONE true God is his unholy Trinity.
