As I’ve mentioned on my Instagram, I’ve been delving into the Orthodox faith. While reading the Old Testament books that were removed during the protestant reformation I came across a couple interesting things in 3 Maccabees and Wisdom of Solomon that mention the satanic elite, controlled by Satan that ultimately rule this world.
(Note: Catholicism does not consider 3 Maccabees canonical but they do consider Wisdom of Solomon canon. Eastern Orthodox accepts both. Protestants reject both. It’s also of note that both these books were included in the Septuagint and were always considered legitimate by the Orthodox).
For context, in 3 Maccabees deals with the struggle of Jews who suffered under the rule of Ptolemy IV Philopater sometime between 221-203 BC. King Ptolemy attempts to desecrate the Holy of Holies in the Jerusalem Temple before a divine intervention by God on behalf of the Jewish people’s prayers and Simon’s (the high priest) prayers. After Ptolemy’s humiliation at this, he became determined to have vengeance on Israel, enforcing no worship of Yahweh, and Jews must comply to Egypt by being branded with a mark (much like the Mark of the Beast spoken of in Revelation 13:16-17).
This is one reason why the elite love Egyptian symbolism and the ancient mysteries of Egypt, for it symbolizes all the times Egypt has kept the people of God enslaved and under their control.
In 3 Maccabees 2:30 it states, “But so as not to appear an enemy to all, he wrote underneath: “if some of them (Jews) prefer to join those initiated into the mysteries, they will have equal rights of citizenship…”
Henry C. Clausen, 33rd degree freemason, grand commander of the supreme council of 33, and who openly wore the symbol of the baphomet on his attire in speeches, made the assertion that the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is the modern home of The Mysteries. “From Ancient Egypt, to Greece, to Rome, to the Renaissance and Enlightenment, to Kabbalistic Schools and then into Freemasonry.” Albert Pike highlighted the importance of the Egyptian mysteries in Morals & Dogma, pages 373, 377, etc. The same people who tried to enforce a mark back then, will try to do it again, just on a much grander scale.
The next was Wisdom of Solomon 14:22-23, “They call such evils peace. For they either hold child-murdering rites of initiation, or celebrate secret mysteries, or engage in the frantic revelry of special customs.” Chapter 15 goes on to talk about ‘Egyptian Enemies.’ Chapter 12 talks about Egypt being judged. These evil practices are being attributed to Egypt, the same Egypt that freemasons/elite openly adore and admit they are the modern form of.
Is there not an inversion of calling wicked things good/peace in today’s society? Evidence of #PizzaGate and child trafficking by the elite (Jeffrey Epstein)? They worship Moloch at Bohemian Grove which is the same ‘god’ people sacrificed children to. Ritual sacrifice was also done by the Egyptians, both animal and human. Is there not a celebration of secret mysteries, customs, initiations like secret societies? And powerful people belonging to them? A disdain for Christianity and efforts to stomp it out?
Of course mention of Egypt is not relegated to only these ‘removed’ books. Isaiah, Ezekiel, 1 Kings, Exodus, Jeremiah, Numbers, and more all mention Egypt in varying degrees of context.
“I said to them, each of you must get rid of the detestable idols you keep before you, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.” – Ezekiel 20:7 “Those who go down to Egypt for help are as good as dead, those who rely on war horses, and trust in Egypt’s many chariots and in their many, many horsemen. But they do not rely on the Holy One of Israel and do not seek help from the Lord.” – Isaiah 31:1
“I, the Lord, promise that I will hand Pharaoh Hophra king of Egypt over to his enemies who are seeking to kill him.” – Jeremiah 44:30
“In the fifth year of king Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem. He carried off the treasures of the temple of the Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made.” – 1 Kings 14:25-26
Seems there really is nothing new under the sun.
