The Tree of Jesse is a depiction in art of the ancestors of Christ, shown in a tree which rises from Jesse of Bethlehem, the father of King David; the original use of the family tree as a schematic representation of a genealogy. It originates in a passage in the Biblical Book of Isaiah which describes metaphorically the descent of the Messiah, and is accepted by Christians as referring to Jesus.
Mary, the "Blossoming Rod of Jesse"
In the tradition of medieval cloister gardens the circular, "O", form of the central pools - replicated in Mary's Garden's "Magnificat Fountain" and repeated in the overall circular form of the garden and in the form of the statue's reflecting pool - was seen to recall the great "O Antiphon" of the December 19th Advent liturgy, intoned in choir by the gardening monk: "O, Rod of Jesse, come!"
referring to the prophecy by Isaiah of the Virgin Birth of the Redeemer under the imagery of the miraculously blossoming Rod of Jesse (Isaiah 2:11).
This scriptural symbol of the Blessed Virgin was seen by the Church Fathers as the revealed basis for the reference of all flowers to Mary, the "Flower of flowers" (Chaucer), as her symbols and signatures - as with the "Rose of Sharon" and "Lily of the Valleys", from the Song of Songs.
The blossoming rod (or root, shoot or stem, depending on the translation of the Bible) of Jesse was envisaged as a miracle in nature, appropriately adopted as a symbol of the prophesied miraculous virginal conception and birth of the Messiah - in the line of Jesse and David - because in nature the new blooms of plants, such as the grapevine, normally come from the upper branches, or from the point of pruning, rather than from a stem emerging from the root.
Our story begins with the Lucifer Rebellion and the transporting of the Tree of Life to a high mountainous region by Van the leader of the loyalists. This region would become to be named Afghanistan.
So ancient is the beginning of this story that we have no written record of these events. Or do we? It took a long long time to be written but it's there. It took the coming of the Andites and the culture they created to reveal this incredible legend. The Andites are legendary in their own right being from the bloodline of Adam and Eve and the Nodite remnants of the original fallen.
And it is most appropriate that part of this story starts here in the wilds of Central Asia. For the Andites have the true first human aboriginal blood from creatures that looked upon the world with the first human eyes knowing they were different from all others. These first humans were Homo erectus by which the Urantia Book names them as the Andonites. Very near this place of epical significance is the beginning of the human race, but that is another story.
"The oldest name of Babylon, Tin-tir-ki, meant ‘the place of the tree of life’.
• The name Euphrates was applied to the rope of the world, to the encircling river of the snake god of the tree of life, to the heavenly river which surrounds the earth (Sumerian)."

Symbols are the keys that unlock the doors to the secrets of the universe. The Mysteries of the occult are saturated with them and they are also used throughout the Bible to describe events of the past, the present and the future. The symbolism used here in the present, if traced back to its roots in the past, will move the veil of the future aside and make what was once unclear come into focus. For example, the tree of life (Genesis 3:22) is referring to the Human Genome that was in the news at the beginning of this year.
What Adam and Eve earned for future generations by disregarding God and following Satan, was death by chromosome failure. God altered our DNA sequence in the garden of Eden to cause aging and death because He knew why Satan had returned to the planet. He was going to use the man and the woman to reestablish a race of mighty men (Genesis 6:4) destroyed by God prior to Genesis 1:2. Genesis 3:22-24 explains that these men of renown knew it was possible to live forever in human form and that is why God placed the secret of eternal life for our particular genetic code under the protection of armed guards, to keep the way of the tree of life not only from mankind, but the men of renown as well. The genetic code given to us is different from the one of old and if the sons of God are going to live forever in the bodies available to them now, they are going to have to figure out what it was in mankind's genetic sequence that God tweaked at the garden of Eden so that they can reverse the changes that He made. "And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years." Genesis 6:5 is telling us that God did not live in the flesh himself, but the sons of God...mighty men...of old, did.
Because the sons of God (angels) from Genesis 6:4 let the animal instincts of the flesh corrupt them, they were physically destroyed by the first death in Psalm 89:10, "You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; you have scattered your enemies with your strong arm." Rahab was a planet that God reduced to rubble between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 that is now the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The significance of where God had Rahab placed in the Bible cannot be over stressed either. I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me, Psalm 87:4. In 1987 a team of scientists discovered evidence that the asteroid belt was once a planet (see Israel Be Warned about the book of Psalms).
If you would like a better understanding of what happened to the sons of God, rent a copy of the movie Mission to Mars. Psalm 89:10 will begin to make a lot more sense as you watch what is shown to the team of astronauts after they enter the alien face on the surface of Mars.
They watch as the planet is destroyed by an asteroid strike. The inhabitants then abandon their world rather quickly, but between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, those were not aliens leaving the planet in space ships heading for a distant star system to start over. They were the spirits of devils trying to avoid the second death by running from the Lord who was still busy laying waste to their dwelling places on the stones of fire, or planets of our universe (see Ezekiel 28:14). Once they had put some distance between themselves and a very angry God, they regrouped to form the Blue Star (see One If By Land, Two If By See) and the next mention of them is in Genesis chapter three.
Examination of the correct occult documents will show you that down through history certain enlightened ones among us have known about mankind's altered genetic sequence for centuries. The practice of divination taught to the woman in Genesis 3:5 (and you shall be as gods) tells us that the knowledge taught by Satan to Adam and Eve was desired to make one wise like the Chaldean priests of Babylon who learned this art form in ancient Babel or the land of Shinar.
The extent of Satan's knowledge is expressed in Ezekiel 28:3-15. "Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; there is no secret they can hide from you...You have been in Eden the garden of God...You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so...you were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you."
The various chapels and oratories are filial in that they relate to the mother shrine in the country of origin or the particular religious community to which they are affiliated. Offering the same graces and indulgences, individuals and groups can make a pilgrimage to many of the great Marian Shrines of the world at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
She is the Stuff of Legends & Heresies
Church "authorities" have long considered Mary Magdalene a dangerous woman. So dangerous, they purposely labeled her a prostitute and covered up her role in Yeshua's life. Her true role in Christianity as co-Teacher with Jesus has been at best, obscured, and at worst -- purposely obliterated. What were/are they so afraid of?
Our Order works to honor and restore the Magdala, the Sacred Feminine, to her rightful place as part of the Godhead. We are following Yeshua and Magdala's true tradition, long suppressed, violently removed from mainstream Christianity, but always surviving just below the surface, in the esoteric, heretical fringe......
When Ishmael was born, Abraham thought that Ishmael would be his heir and from him would come the great Jewish nation that G-d had promised
Maybe thats why we are killing those brown people now a days as well. Wrong mother, Jewish God chose Sarah.
most fail to see and understand, and that is "I am not a widow". Who, even today, claim that they are STILL married to God? Therein lies the identity of those who are the synagogue of Satan - think, Christ has his ecclesia, his congregation, and Satan has his, those that call themselves "Jews", but who are not. You must understand that the English word "Jew" never existed apart from a few centuries ago.
You think that Abraham was a "Jew", but have no understanding that ONE of his twelve grandchildren was named Judah. You probably believe that Jesus was a "Jew" too. You certainly state that the Creator of Heaven and Earth is a "Jewish god". You probably believe that Judaism is the religion of the Old Testament.....
Your thread contains so many untruths that your entire beliefs and conclusions are just untruths as well. If you knew the time, you'd know why this material is placed before you to read and digest, and why you choose to believe it.
and Mary Magdalena, Saint Lazarus among others being shown in prominence.
These two are thought to have traveled together to Europe. He being IMO he is her brother in law.
Basically she was intended by Jesus to continue his work as the leader of the new church, NOT PETER. The apostles were already jealous of her as we can tell from the many times they asked their teacher why he favored her, kissed her on the mouth and so on. In tradition with the old world practices, after the king was married to the temple priestess, prostitute, he was sacrificed for the good of the kingdom. She would reign in his place. The apostles were against this since they still believed he would lead them into glorious revolution against Rome.
When they found out that she was to be part of the God head, they quickly shunned her and sent her on her way. She traveled north east and founded many orders, of which some still remain. There are many safe houses dedicated to helping prostitutes that still exist today. The black Madonna was busy.
I want to point out that Jesus himself held pagan beliefs. This was another source of conflict with him and the pharoses. The Jewish elite felt very threatened by this man, who had no proper lineage, probably because he was born of a pagan union. IMO was the illegitimate son of king Herod.
He had an uphill battle. He openly associated himself with the Samaritans, is accused of being one, traveled their lands at a time when all Jews circumvented them, and probably held pagan beliefs. This at a time when the idols were being expelled from the temple and all Jewish ancestry was being cleansed of impure bloodlines.
Still he had a few things going for him. He had access to antediluvian information which let him perform miracles. Was actually lost science of medicine and physics which he applied to free people form dogmatic and theocratic rule. He was a nice guy, and he probably looked like the kings family.
I don't know to what end people who keep his image sacred yet honor the goddess have in mind when masking their worship.
Esoteric Origins of Alchemy
Early alchemists Zosimus and Isis said alchemical knowledge came from fallen angels sexually attracted to human women. The early Christian church fathers believed them and claimed the angels had sinned against the orders of god. Who were these angels?
The Book of Enoch (Enoch 1), the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (Enoch 2) and the Book of Jubilees contain more details about the fallen angels referred to in Genesis. Enoch 2 was probably written by a Hellenistic Jew in the first century CE. Enoch 1 and the Book of Jubilees are Jewish works of the intertestamental period written down in the second century BCE. The information contained in them is much older than the date of these manuscripts.
Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah. Genesis 5: 22-24 says, “And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” The Books of Enoch describe how he was taken to the heavens after a tour of the earth: “The Lord spoke, ‘Have no fear, Enoch, good man and scribe of goodness. Come hear my voice.
Go speak to the Watcher of Heaven, who have sent you to intercede for them. Tell them: You should intercede for men, and not men for you. Why did you leave lofty, holy Heaven to sleep with women, to defile yourselves with the daughters of men and take them as your wives...?’” After God’s rhetorical admonition against his lustful yet loving angels He said to Enoch, “As for the Watcher who sent you to intercede for them, tell them: ‘You were in Heaven but the mysteries were not revealed to you. You knew worthless ones, and in the hardness of your hearts you revealed these to women, and through these secrets women and men work much evil [on] earth.’ Say to them, ‘You have no peace.’”
After his audience with God, angels including the archangel Uriel took Enoch on journeys through hell and heaven. From there the angel Raguel took him to the Seven Mountains in the Northwest and the Tree of Life. “Fragrant trees encircled the throne. Among them was a tree like no other. Its fragrance was beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and blooms and wood never withered....” Michael, the leader of the angels tells Enoch,
“As for this fragrant tree, no mortal is permitted to touch it till the great judgment....” Enoch was instructed by the Lord to write down what had been revealed to him and to teach the people this wisdom. He did so in 366 books. Scholars believe the meaning of the name Enoch stems from a variant of the Hebrew root connoting “to train, to educate
Another image of her—featured with the egg icon—seems confusing at first. It shows strength, resolve, and what about the egg? An obvious fertility symbol?
If you remember the Easter Bunny and dyeing Easter eggs, then you had a clue all along, it turns out—and the resurrection is tied up in that too. There was a pagan festival for Eostre/Ishtar, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring (whose symbol is the rabbit), which celebrates the end of winter and the start of spring. The tradition of hard-boiling eggs and painting them symbolizes new hope and dates back to 4000 B.C.
We may rightly call Mary Magdalene the "first Apostle", in view of Bishop Hippolytus of Rome's (2nd-3rd century) assigning her the title of "apostle of the apostles" and the "new Eve", because of her announcement of Christ's Resurrection to the Apostles, as well as the Eastern Church's longstanding acceptance of her as one of them. History has, unfortunately, erroneously confused St. Mary Magdalene with the unnamed penitent woman in Mark 14 and Luke 7, as well as with St, Mary of Bethany, sister of Martha and Lazarus: all separate Marys whom she certainly outdistances in popularity.
Scholars have been able to verify the general historical accuracy of the Old Testament by comparing the biblical episodes to much older parallel chronicles written in cuneiform characters on clay tablets from the ancient Mesopotamian kingdoms of Assyria and Babylonia. The oldest of all are from Sumer. Shumer is “Land of the Watchers” in Akkadian, the root semitic language used by the Assyrians and Babylonians.
A tablet referred to as CBS 14061 describes an incident paralleling the Enochian marriage of an angel to a human woman. The tablet tells of a young god named Martu who fell in love with the daughter of the high priest of Ninab. Martu complained to his goddess mother, “In my city I have friends, they have taken wives. I have companions, they have taken wives. In my city, unlike my friends, I have not taken a wife; I have no wife, I have no children.” Martu’s mother asked him if the woman he desired “appreciated his gaze.” Then the goddess gave her consent to the marriage.
Enlil the leader of the gods on Earth became increasingly upset over the pollution of Anunnaki blood by these marriages and over the young Anunnaki gods becoming more interested in freedom and idyllic life on earth than taking orders from Enlil. He said “I will destroy the Earthling whom I have created off the face of the Earth.”
Mary’s identification as a prostitute stems from Pope Gregory I’s Homily 33, delivered in 591 C.E. (a symbol equivalent to A.D. which means ‘common era,’ and one which is used more frequently, along with B.C.E, which means ‘before common era.’). Pope Gregory I declared: “She whom Luke calls the sinful woman, whom John calls Mary, we believe to be Mary from whom seven devils were ejected according to Mark. And what did these seven devils signify, if not all the vices? … It is clear, brothers, that the woman previously used the unguent [ointment, balm] to perfume her flesh in forbidden acts.
” Only in 1969 did the Catholic Church officially repeal Gregory’s labeling of Mary as a whore, but as many scholars note, that information was not preached much, if at all, from the pulpit. This could explain why many people today still consider Mary Magdalene the “penitent whore” who was saved by Jesus’ compassionate teaching and grace.
The Church is now accepting Mary Magdalene as one of Jesus’ disciples, and before his death, Pope John Paul II proclaimed her “Apostle to the Apostles.” But there is still much controversy surrounding her former status as “reformed prostitute” among Christians and Gnostics alike, as well as with the nature of her relationship with Jesus.
Other authors write that the “whore” legend may have developed because of Mary’s purported involvement with “sacred sex.” Lynn Picknett, author of “Mary Magdalene: Christianity’s Hidden Goddess,” writes, “It would be unduly hasty to dissociate her from all suspicion of ‘prostitution’ in an excess of modern zeal to rehabilitate her. Several researchers have pointed out that the ‘seven devils’ that were allegedly cast out of her may be a garbled reference to the seven underworld gatekeepers of the pagan mysteries, and may provide a valuable clue about her real background.”
There isn’t evidence to say one way or another whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married or whether they had any children. We do know they kissed, that the other disciples were jealous of Jesus’ affection toward her (especially Peter) and that MM spoke her mind as an equal of the other disciples. In the Gospel of Mary, she related a secret esoteric teaching about the rise of the soul that Jesus had given to her in a vision, a statement that was challenged by Andrew, and hotly contested by Peter.
The gospels of Mark and John both name Mary Magdalene, not Peter, as the first witness of the resurrection. But orthodox churches that trace their origin to Peter developed the tradition—sustained to this day among Catholic and some Protestant churches—that Peter had been ‘the first witness of the resurrection,’ and hence the rightful leader of the church.” Using that basis for preeminence in the Church, Mary Magdalene is the true Rock.
Christ, called by Scripture the New Adam and New Creation, is the beginning of the New Heavens and Earth prophesied in Scripture, because his body contains a new and fundamentally different substance: Divine DNA. This DNA allows for the marriage of heaven and earth and the emergence of a God-man. Through Christ, the Creator is now materially present in the created order, renewing everything. But Christ is also a man. God must deeply love us to want his Only Son to become flesh as one of us, literally holding in his Body forever our human genetic nature. Here we rest, within Christ who is God in the flesh, the New-Universe-in-the-Making!
