Shift of Christianity in America
The Pilgrims and Puritans of New England were the builders of the strongest Christian colonies of all the original thirteen colonies. With leaders such as John Winthrop, they built towns that were both church-centered and that were governed according to the laws of God. Only white male Christian church members could hold either ecclesiastical or civil office, as well as vote. It was the law in these Puritan colonies that all its citizens had to attend church on Sunday, as well as all the businesses had to be closed on this commanded day of rest.
But by the late seventeen hundreds, the Unitarians, Quakers, Transcendentalists, Humanists, Socialists, Deists and liberal theologians pushed the Puritan "city set on a hill" into a deep valley of Unitarianism. Boston, once the stronghold of Christian America, became the unofficial center of the evil forces of the religion of humanism.
And as immigrants from New England moved westward to the frontier land, especially western New York State along its newly built Erie Canal, they took with them their heresies. Western New York then became the area of new religions (example: Mormonism), new revivals (example: Finney's man-planned decision revivals) and new types of churches (example: "creedless" churches.
Eventually the Christian center in America shifted to the agricultural plantations and small towns of the South. The South, with its strong reformed churches, successfully fought off the advancement of the thoelogy of the humanists.
Since the humanists could not penetrate the theology of the churches of the South as it had done in the North--they had to find another avenue of attack. That avenue was the immediate abolition of slavery. And exploit it they did--with a vengeance. With emancipation as their decoyed goal, it served to justify them in their delusions of righteous grandeur. It matered not to the radical abolitionist that slavery would soon end--war or no war--for the abolishing of slavery was not their major aim. It was just the means to serve their satanic agenda of universalism, integration and miscegenation--a total denial of God's instructions to His poeple to be "holy"--that is a separate people.
Involved with a "Ghostly" Night Visitor
Julia Howe wrote that she herself did not really write the lyrics now know as the "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". She testified that a "spiritual visitor" awakened her in the middle of the night. She quickly got out of bed and went to her desk. There she copied what the "ghostly" night visitor dicated to her. In a very short time she had written all of the words to this poem/song and she went back to sleep.
So, like Freemason Charles Gradison Finney, Freemason Joseph Smith and many others in this era of America's spiritual decline, evil spirits also influenced Julia Ward Howe. No wonder this song is so powerful and deceptive. It is full of double meanings. Since Lucifer desires to be worshipped, then the intention of this song is to have Christians think they are singing about God's return to destroy evil--while the song is really about the Northern Armies destroying the Christian churches and towns of the South. Also, its intention is to have Christians think they are singing about Jesus being born across the sea in the beauty of the lilies--while the song is really about another god.
Deception of Jesus' Birth
Deception is the main weapon of Satan. And he is the master of it. Notice how the popular Encylopedias (World Book, Collier's and Compton's) and Freemasonry's "Morals and Dogma" trace the "bait and switch" deceptive tactic used in identifying the time of Jesus' birth:
"Mithras was the Sun-God of the Persians, and was fabled to have been born in a grotto or cave, at the Winter Solstice. His feasts were celebrated at that period, at the moment when the sun commenced to turn Northward, and to increase the length of days. This was the great feast of the Magian religion. The Roman Calendar, published in the time of Constantine, at which period his worship began to gain ground in the Occident, fixed his feast-day on the 25th of December...." (Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Albert Pike, p. 587).
Mithras, known in other countries as Serapis, Osiris, Atys, Adonis was born of December 25th! The Bible does not give the exact date of Jesus' birth, but indirectly it can be said that His birth occurred in the fall of the year, probably during the Feast of Tabernacles. "No one knows the exact datea of Christ's birth" (World Book Encyclopedia, under the topic: Christmas).
According to Collier's Encyclopedia: "In England, the Puritans condemned the [Christmas] celebration and from 1642 to 1652, issued a series of ordinances forbidding all church services and festivities. This feeling was carried over to America by the Pilgrims and it was not until the nineteenth-century wave of Irish and German immigration that enthusiasm for the feast began to spread throughout the country."
So Jesus was NOT born on December 25th. But Mithras WAS born on December 25th. So, according to Compton's Encyclopedia: "Because there was no knowledge about the date of Jesus' birth, a day had to be selected. The Eastern Orthodox and the Eastern Rite churches within the Roman Catholic Church chose January 6th. The day was named Epiphany, meaning 'appearance.' The Western Church, based at Rome chose December 25th...In the later half of the fourth century, the Eastern and Western churches adopted each other's festival, thus establishing the modern 12-day celebration from Christmas to Epiphany."
If the date of Jesus' birth was not known and a date had to be selected--why out of 365 possible days to select, would "Christian" leaders chose the one day that was the birthday of a pagan god? For the same reason that Julia Ward wrote that Christ was born "in the beauty of the lilies." As many Christians think that they are celebrating Jesus' birthday when it is really another god's birthday, so many Christians think they are singing about Jesus being born across the sea when it is another god!
What god was born across the sea in the beauty of the lilies? The answer in HORUS, the son of Isiris (who's birthday was on December 25th--see above). And who was Horus and his family? The following gives a brief history of this "divine family of Egypt."
The Divine Family of Egypt
The pharaohs of Egypt trace their lineage to the god Horus. HORUS was the son of OSIRIS and ISIS. Osiris reigned on earth and married his sister Isis. Their mission was to bring civilization to humanity, to teach people about the practice of:
This "civilization" that was brought to Egypt and spread to the world [by the Jesuits, Talmudists, Freemasons, Unitarians, Quakers, Deists, Transcendentalism, etc.] was not the government that was given to God's people Isreal-to rule their civil, ecclesiastical and family governments--but an opposing counterfeit kindgom.
One day Seth, the god of disorder, murdered his brother Osiris, the god of order [similar to the murder of Abel by his brother Cain]. The murder happened at a banquet when Seth invited guests to lie down in a coffin [similar to what the initiates of the Skull and Bones (both former Presidential candidates: George Bush and John Kerry both were member of this Masonic special group) are instructed to do--lie naked in a coffin]. Several guests tried unsuccessfully; but when Osiris climbed in, Seth and his conspirators nailed down the lid, weighed the coffin down with lead and cast it into the Nile.
This happened in July when the waters of the Nile were rising. The coffin drifted down to the Mediterranean Sea and washed ashore at Byblos, in Phoenicia. A tamarisk tree grew up around the coffin, completely enclosing it in its trunk. When Isis found the tree, she released the coffin from it and shipped it back to Egypt. While grieving over her husband's body, she transformed herself into a kite. As she flew over the body, she miraculously conceived a child [similar to the virgin birth of Jesus].
Isis tried to hide her pregnancy from Seth. Thoth, the god of wisdom, advised her to flee because Seth would try to kill her child [similar to Herod's attempt to murder the infant Jesus]. She went to the marshes, where she gave birth to her son, Horus. Horus was born out of the lotus flower (water lily) that rose from the primeval waters.
The Ancient Egyptians noticed that the lotus responds to the presence or absence of light/warmth. It submerges itself by night and rises from the water at dawn, symbolically "worshipping the sun." This sun-loving water lily was the Egptian Christ--Krishna.
The son of Isis, Horus, who was born among the lilies, became the archetype of the pharaohs, the sun god's representative on earth. Isis kept her young son hidden until he became an adolescent and could face Seth to claim is rightful inheritance, the throne of Egypt.
While Horus was growing up, the sun god, Re, grew old and started drooling. Isis took the saliva that fell to the ground and modeled it into a serpent. She placed the serpent across Re's daily path in the sky, and it bit the sun. Since the sun had not made the serpent, he could not cure himself. He turned to Isis for help. She said she could do nothing unless he revealed his secret name to her.
Re realized this was the only way he could be cured. So he reluctantly allowed his secret name to be passed from his bosom directly to hers. Isis was forbidden from revealing it to anyone except her son Horus. The Eye of Re-the supreme power of the creator--was thus given to Horus, and subsequently to all the pharaohs down through the ages. It then became known as the all-seeing EYE OF HORUS.
Eventually, after a decisive battle with Seth, Horus became the god of kingship, and the pharaohs traced their lineage to him, the god who triumphed over evil.
Osiris was born on December 25th. His son, Horus, was born "in the beauty of the lotus (water lilies) across the sea" in the Egyptian marshlands. The glory (Re's secret name) that was in Re's bosom was transformed into Isis' bosom. From Isis' bosom it was transformed into Horus' bosom that transfigured him into the god of kingship. His "all seeing eye"--the supreme power of the creator was given to Horus and then to al the pharaohs of Egypt. Except for the short time of Joseph's providential era of power, Egypt's government has rivaled and opposed the people of God's covenant.
From Egypt, over the centruies, it has infiltrated into powerful kingdoms and movements, promoted by such groups as the Jesuits, Talmudists and Freemason. The "all seeing eye of god" has become one of the symbols of the ancient foe of God's Kingdom--now known as the new world order.
Julia Ward Howe's motive in writing the "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" was to make the War of Northern Aggression against the Confederate States of America as a "holy war." Being married to one of the "Secret Six," the major supporters of terrorist's activity in the mid-1800's, and being a Unitarian and Transcendentalist provided her with the zeal to try to bring to pass their antichristian ideals.
By clothing her lyrics in relgious terms, she was able to hide its original intent and meaning. To Mrs. Howe, god was in the Union Army leading it to destroy the South: i.e. humanism destroying Christianity. And the evil South--symbolized by Julia as a serpent--was portrayed as being crushed by the heel of the Union troops--Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! The god of the Unitarians is marching on.
And the god of the Unitarians has been marching on ever since, until now it has almost "marched on" to the entire world. Thus, the real meaning of the last stanza of her propaganda war song of the Republic of the Northern States of the United States of America was:
In the beauty of the lilies [in the Egyptian marshlands],
Christ [Horus] was born across the sea [Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea]
With a glory [of Re's secret name] in his bosom
That transfigures you and me [to be under the "all seeing eye" of his kingship].
As he died to make men holy [men like John Brown, who died to make men a part of this progressive centralized government under the control and influence of the all seeing eye of Horus and his successors, Lucifer's vicars on earth--as slaves in one world kingdom of darkness].
Let us die to make men [black slaves] free [by destroying the South].
While [the] god [of humanism--Lucifer] is marching on [to make the United States, including the seceded states of the South and the Western territories a land of humanism and socialism].
Compare the words of The Battle Hymn of the Republic with the chorus of another famous hymn, Onward Christian Soldiers:
Onward, Christian soliers, Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus, Going on before!
With WHOM are the Christian soliers at war? WHAT are they fighting? As it was in the past, so it is in the present.
"For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God...and had feared other gods.
And walked in the statutes of the nations, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made...
And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he had made with their fathers, and his testimonies, which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the nations who were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charded them, that THEY SHOULD NOT DO LIKE THEM" (2 Kings 17:7, 8, 15).
Simply put, from its unique beginning at Mr. Sinai--ancient Israel eventually rejected God's laws that were both divinely spoken and written to them and instead walked in the laws of the other nations--that is, the laws of those governments that had the "all seeing eye" of Horus!
Modern day Israel has repeated its history. The unique Christian beginning of the Pilgrim and Purian colonies, which kept many of God's laws in the 1600's, was short-lived. The change away from God's law in these colonies began in the late 1600's when the Puritans allowed the arranging of Colonial Charters which permitted Corporations, such as the Massachusetts Bay Company, to tax the inhabitants.
Nearly a century later, at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, Cornwallis (who was a Freemason) "surrendered" to General George Washington (who also was a Freemason), on the condition that the Bank of England would control the central Bank of the new country. Cornwallis' troops were then allowed to leave with their arms and ammunition--very unusual for a "surrender." The theretofore worthless Continentals were then redeemed at 100 cents to the dollar with British silver.
Congress, under the Articles of Confederation, authorized Ben Franklin to borrow 8 million Livra from the British Crown. He signed the note on July 16, 1782. The loan was due on January 1, 1788. When it became obvious that the Note could not be paid, a Constitutional Convention was held to reorganize the bankruptcy.
Seventy-two years later, the congressmen of the southern States of America walked out of congress in session because they did not agree with the policies the northern States had forced on them. This action caused a State of emergency which suspended the Republic of the united States of America and therfore suspended the constitution and its government. Within a few decades, an elite group of private bankers created a private corporation in England, which has gradually replaced the republic with the ancient policies of the "all seeing eye" of Horus in the area of government, religion and marriage.
Thus the present day multicultural, diverse, and pluralistic humanistic United States keeps the laws of the nations of God's enemies--not the laws of the God of their Christian forefathers! Today's United States Government is in no way founded upon the Christian religion. America now honors the statutes of the god who was born "in the beauty of the lilies" rather than the statutes of the God who was born in a manager!
The assault was first on the divine being of Jesus. The anthropocentric humanistic believers taught that Jesus was, at best, nothing more than a wise man. But the Holy Scriptures dogmatically exclaim that "God also hath highly EXALTED HIM" [Jesus Christ] (Philippians 2:9a) and that "there was given him [Jesus Christ] DOMINION, AND GLORY, AND A KINGDOM, that all people, nations, and languages should serve HIM; HIS dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and HIS kingdom that which shall not be destroyed" (Daniel 7:14).
The assault continued onto the churches of which Jesus was the head. But Jesus said after His resurrection to His apostles: "All AUTHORITY is given unto me in heaven and in earth" (Matthew 28:18b).
As the Father sent the Son and gave to Him ALL AUTHORITY; and as the Son sent the apostles and gave to them delegated authority; the apostles built the local churches of Israelites throughout the lands in which they had been scattered (Ephesians 2:20). And the authority granted by God to His local churches trumps any authority of pagan governments.
The everlasting Kingdom of God, with Jesus Chrsit as the exalted King over His particular covenant people Israel in their God appointed lands--that is what the Unitarians, Quakers, Transcendentalists, Deists, Universalists, Rationalists, Socialists, Humanists, Communists, Freemasons, Jesusits, Talmudists, etc. want destroyed.
"Glory, laud and honor unto Christ [Jesus] the King--this thru countless ages men and angels sing."
