How the Mystery Religion was formulated


The Legacy of Nimrod – The Sun God Ba’al

Nimrod worshipped the pagan sungod named Moloch.  The title “Great Hunter before (in the face of) YHVH” was ascribed to him because he literally hunted human beings to murder as sacrifices to his pagan god.  In the Book of Jasher (the book of Jasher is mentioned in the Bible Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18) we learn that Nimrod received instruction from the priests of Molech to marry his mother in an act of incest in order to acquire “the third eye” or the “all seeing eye”.  The exact same knowledge sought by those today who call themselves the “illuminati” or “illuminated ones”. 

All-seeing-eye of Lucifer (Light Bearer)

This form of “dark knowledge” is a counterfeit of The Spirit of YHVH with a promise to “see” into the Spiritual Realm.  This "dark knowledge" is that knowledge imparted by the fallen angels to mankind as described in The Book of Enoch.

Nimrod, the King, took a wife.  The wife Nimrod chose was his mother.  So the “son” became both the husband and son of the mother.  In effect making this marriage a “trinity” union in as much as the “husband” was the same person as the “son” united as “one” with the wife/mother.  So Nimrod married his mother, Semiramis, and she became the Queen of Babylon.  It was Semiramis from which the religion surrounding Nimrod and the planets (astrology) evolved.  Nimrod the mighty and ruthless murderer was killed for his crimes against humanity by the sons of Noah.  His body cut into pieces and distributed all over his kingdom by his enemies.  In the face of Nimrod’s death, Semiramis had to somehow maintain her grip and power over the people.  In order to solidify her power she “invented” a religion for the people that would keep Nimrod’s control over them even after his death.  She then gave birth to a son named Tammuz whom she claimed was the reincarnation of Nimrod.  So through the belief that Tammuz was "Nimrod in the flesh" the queen was able to subdue the people of Babylon.  So Tammuz was “Nimrod in the flesh” and “one” with his father who was “one” with his wife/mother through marriage… the unholy concept of aTrinity is born.

The Babylonian Empire was the first attempt at a “One World Government” or “New World Order”.  This human attempt at global governance through the use of “dark knowledge”, astrology, and pagan god worship was an abomination to YHVH.  The Tower of Babel was a tower built not to “reach up to YHVH” but rather as a massive structure from which to consult the stars through the use of astrology and communicate with “The Sun” Baal.  YHVH intervened and confused the speech of the people of earth and scattered them abroad.   With the migration of the people coming out of Babylon, the sun-worshipping religion of Babylon was scattered throughout the Earth, the names changed but the religion remained the same.

Since the languages now were “confused” the names of Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz were changed and continued to change over time based on culture and language.  Although the names changed, the religion remained exactly the same.  Semiramis, however, became known as “The Queen of Heaven” among all cultures and worshipped as the primary head of this false religion.  Even the children of Israel fell into the worship of Semiramis, The Queen of Heaven, and YHVH sent them the prophet Jeremiah with the following warning:

Jeremiah 44:17-18

“But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goes forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. But since we left off to burn incense to the QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.”  

The following statue was originally a statue is of Isis holding Horus the Roman names for Semiramis holding her son Tammuz, later known as Modonna/Child and today this statue stands having been renamed as Mary/Jesus (the latest incarnation of Semiramis/Tammuz):

This statue was literally renamed by the Roman Emperor Constantine to “Mary and Baby Jesus” in the 3rd Century as the names continued to evolve and change.  We will discuss these name changes later in this book series.

Together Semiramis and Nimrod (and the bastard son of Semiramis named Tammuz) started this occult religion of sacrificing babies to Moloch, aka Satan or the false pagan sun-god. Nimrod means “tyrant,” as he led the Babylonians to pay tribute to the skies (the sun, moon, stars, and planets) with the sacrifices of their children. The Tower of Babel which was built for this purpose among others, was echoed in other cultures such as the Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas in the form of Pyramid structures all aligned with the Sun and all built for the same purposes as The Tower of Babel.

The picture above is a depiction of children being sacrificed to the two horned god Molech (Satan), even today this practice is “simulated” by our world leaders at Bohemian Grove in California each year!  But that is another discussion all together.

Obelisks were constructed as part of this “religion” as phallic or male fertility symbols interpreted as sun rays.

These exact same pagan structures are echoed throughout our “Christian” nations.  A massive obelisk sits in the very center of St. Peter’s Square of The Vatican (birthplace and capital city of Christianity) in Rome surrounded by Occult symbols and figures and idols of pagan gods.

And we have an obelisk constructed in the heart of our own “Christian” nation we call The Washington Monument.

These obelisks to this day grace the tops of Christian Churches, we just call them “steeples” adorned with the “Cross of Tammuz” (I will cover this too) as we too worship The Trinity on Sun-god-Day.  Christians are still 100% Catholic in doctrine they are just “protesting Catholics” called “Protestants”.

This religion created in Babylon by Nimrod and Semiramis was making them rich as the people had to pay money to come into the temple to sacrifice their babies at the Winter Solstice (December 21st-25th) and also at “Easter (Ishtar) Sunrise Services,” at the spring or Vernal Equinox (March 21st-25th).  Every year on March 25th & December 25th, there would be wild drunken parties and orgies where virgins were impregnated by pagan priests. Since there are 9 months to a pregnancy, and there are also 9 months between March 25th and December 25th, the pagan priests of Ba’al would impregnate these virgins on Easter Sunday.  This was done to commemorate the impregnation of Semiramis with Tammuz, and then by December 25th when these infants were newly born, they would then offer up these new born babies on the altar to “Moloch” (Nimrod) on December 25th.  A few months later on Easter “Sun-day” they would offer up more infants to the goddess named “Easter” or “Ishtar” the moon goddess Semiramis.  They would then take the blood of these sacrificed infants and dip “eggs” in them called Ishtar Eggs.  Let’s take a closer look at this religion.


Religion of Semiramis -  The Moon Goddess Ishtar

As I was saying… Nimrod was killed by his enemies and his body parts distributed all over his kingdom.  Sermiramis attempted to gather the body parts of Nimrod and accomplish retrieving all parts of his dismembered body except his “private parts”.   It was from “the private parts of Nimrod” that Semiramis created the fertility religion known as The Mystery Religion of Babylon these “private parts” remembered by the construction of Obelisks .  Semiramis is described by ancient Greek historians this way:

Herodotus (about 484-420 B.C.) describes her as a queen who ruled the whole of Asia. Diodorus (first century A.D.) says she was the daughter of the Syrian goddess Derketo of Askalon and describes her celebrated construction of the splendid city of Babylon with its hanging gardens, which since modern times have been counted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. He also portrays her as a man-eating queen and powerful warrior, who defeated the powerful army of the Medes. Athenagoras of Athens (second century A.D.), one of the Apologists, calls Semiramis, in his work Legatio pro Christianis, "an immoral and murderous woman."

After the death of her son/husband King Nimrod, Semiramis began to formulate what we now know as The Mystery Religion of Babylon.  In her new religion, she proclaimed that Nimrod had defeated death and elevated himself above all that is called “god” and literally became The Sun.  She instituted a day of worship dedicated to the sun that even today we call “Sun-day” or Dies Solis “Day of The Sun” which later replaced The Day of Rest, the 7th Day Sabbath by order of the Sun Worshipping Emperor Constantine (I will go into this in great detail later). 

Semiramis, being the mother of Nimrod in addition to his queen, then elevated herself up as “The Mother of God” and “Queen of Heaven”.  Semiramis later became pregnant, not wanting to destroy the “image” of her as the Queen/Mother of God she declared that “Nimrod” the Sun God now called Baal (later known as Zeus by the Greeks then God by Christianity) had impregnated her through the “rays of the sun”.   She had given a “virgin birth” to her new son named Tammuz who she claimed was the “reincarnated Nimrod” and The Son of “God”. 

So Tammuz was believed to be the sungod Baal (Nimrod) in the flesh and at the same time The Son of God.  The two, Semiramis and Tammuz, became worshipped as what we now know as “Madonna and Child” then later Mary/Jesus as all the idols were simply renamed by different cultures.


Legend of Tammuz

Tammuz was a great hunter like his (supposed) father Nimrod.  Tammuz was killed by a wild pig in a hunting accident.  Semiramis then expanded on her new religion explaining that her “immortal god-son” who “died” was “resurrected” and became “one with his father”, the Sungod Baal.  The Trinity was born!  Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz became worshipped as the Divine Godhead a triune god in opposition to YHVH, the one and only true living God.  The “son” was the “father”, the father the “son”, and both “one” with the mother through marriage.

The Religions of Ancient Greece and Babylonia, by A. H. Sayce. pages 229-230, clearly tells us that the Greek philosophical ideas were developed in Alexandria, Egypt from the pagan mystery religions.

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 meetingplace 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.

The Outline of History, by H. G. Wells. page 307, tells us:

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.

I will go into great detail on The Trinity later.

Armed with her new religion, Semiramis continued on conquering and expanding her “world government system” and was a very powerful effective ruler over much of Assyria.  In the interest of staying on point, I will not go into much more detail concerning the historical and legendary records of Nimrod and Sermiramis.  I suggest the reader conduct independent study if necessary.  This chapter is only intended to define the religion created by Semiramis known as the Goddess Ishtar/Isis/Diana, among other names, that has come to be known as The Mystery Religion of Babylon so that we can identify how that religion evolved to this very day.
