Neither antiquity nor any other sect of
the present day has imagined
a more atrocious and blasphemous absurdity than that of eating God.
It is a most revolting dogma, insulting to the Supreme Being,
the height of madness and folly.
- Frederick the Great
The Jewish prohibition against eating blood needs no introduction. The verse below says it succinctly and Leviticus 17 is devoted to it. The Eucharist is a major break from Judaism.
2627 (Lev. 7:26-27)
Paul's Eucharist provides background about how Paul was the first to introduce the Eucharist from another religion, Mithraism. As explained in Gospel Zodiac, Jesus spoke those immemorial words when the sun is in the house of Scorpio, October 24-November 22. Abraham's covenant with Yahweh came during the Age of Taurus. This covenant occurs at the end of the Age of Aries or more likely at the beginning of the Age of Pisces.
as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it,
and gave it to the disciples and said,
"Take, eat; this is my body."
27And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you;
28for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
29I tell you I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom." (Matt. 26:26; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 11:23-25; John 6:53-58; 1 Cor. 11:23-26)
I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." (John 6:51)
The answer to the riddle of the Eucharist is in the above picture.
The sun's rays enter the wheat. The wheat is converted into bread. Thus the sun's life giving properties are contained in the bread - food and heat.
There are familiar names for morning sunrise: daybreak and crack of dawn. Thus, one receives life by breaking the bread and eating it.
During the colder months of the year when the sun is low on the horizon, atmospheric conditions produce those beautiful red sunrises and sunsets. The red symbolizes wine and blood. "Covenant" is a pun for cover.
In Matthew 2:1-10, when Jesus turns water into wine, that's an allegorical representation of the sun's reflection on water.
Blessed Sacrament of the Altar
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, another term for Eucharist is "Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.
The expression "Blessed Sacrament of the Altar", introduced by Augustine, is at the present day almost entirely restricted to catechetical and popular treatises.
The Daily Catholic says the Eucharist is also called the Bread of Heaven. And it is called the Sacrament of the Altar because it is consecrated on an altar.
The Holy Eucharist is also called the Bread of Heaven, and the Bread of angels,--this because in it God Himself comes down from Heaven to be our food, thus making us like unto the angels.
It is called the Sacrament of the Altar, because it is consecrated and reserved upon an altar. It is offered up on the altar in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
On the lower left corner is the constellation Ara the Altar. In Greek myth, the Olympians need an altar upon which to swear their allegiance to Jupiter and perform other mutual vows, so Ara was built-adorned with stars and filled with burning incense. The smoke coming from this altar was represented in the night sky by the soft whiteness of the Milky Way.
Cup of Salvation
When we think of craters, we normally think of holes in the ground. But according to Webster, the word has another definition: "in ancient Greece or Rome, a kind of large bowl or jar shaped like an amphora (a tall jar with a narrow neck and base and two handles, used by the ancient Greeks and Romans)" The Greek translation for cup in Matthew 26:26 is poterion, means "drinking vessel."
Now we turn our attention to the picture below. During the fall equinox, the sun descends across the equator into Libra, the scales of justice. There is a constellation called Crater the Bowl which looks like a stemmed shaped goblet. On the day after the equinox, at twelve noon, the picture shows its open side aimed towards the sun and looks to be standing on the ground.
Wine season starts when the sun crosses below the equator. The broken bread symbolizes the northern and southern hemispheres as the sun breaks across from one to the other. This is the time when red sunsets symbolize the sun's bleeding. The cup is there to catch the blood.
Date: 9/24/0001 12:00 PM from Jerusalem.
The picture above gives meaning to the verses below.
The covenant is the coming of the sun to the point of the autumn equinox.
2 (Job 31:1-2)
The hand of the Lord is of course in the heavens.
The sun bleeds the day after it crosses the equator.
12So Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood. (Heb. 13:12) -
As might be guessed from the picture above, the constellation Crater the Bowl is the famous Holy Grail. The Catholic Encyclopedia tells us that the chalice of the Eucharist is etymologically related to crater.
Water into wine
Referring to the above picture, when the sun is in Virgo, Mary says to Jesus, "They have no wine." Jesus responds, "My hour has not yet come," which means that the time for wine making is in September, not August (Virgo is in August). The six stone jars symbolize the six summer months when men must be content to drink water. The time for turning water into wine is not until the latter part of September.
the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no
4And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come."
5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons.
7Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim.
8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it.
9When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom (John 2:3-9)
Vengeance = Vine-geance
42 (Deut. 32:41)
these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all
that is written.
23Alas for those who are with child [Virgo] and for those who give suck in those days! For great distress shall be upon the earth and wrath upon this people; (Luke 21:22-23)
the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
2Every branch of mine that bears no fruit, he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3You are already made clean by the word which I have spoken to you. (John 15:1-3)
The parable of the Tenants
A householder planted a vineyard, built a wine press and leased it to tenants. When wine season came, he sent slaves to collect his wine. They got beaten, killed or stoned. When he sent his son, they killed him too. When the owner comes what will he do to those tenants?
another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set
a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower,
and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.
34When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit;
35and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.
36Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them.
37Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
38But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.'
39And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
40When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" ((Matt. 21:33-40)
His disciples thought he would put those wretches to a miserable death and lease the vineyard to other tenants. Answered Jesus, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it.
said to him, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let
out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their
42Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?
43Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it." (Matt. 21:41-43)
Cup of Wrath
Cup of Staggering
Cup of Consolation
Cup of Reeling
It is up to the Father to decide who shall drink from Jesus' cup.
Jesus answered, "You do not know what
you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?"
They said to him, "We are able."
23He said to them, "You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father." (Matt. 20:22-23)
Scribes and Pharisees cleans the outside of the cup.
to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for you cleanse the outside of the cup and of
the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and rapacity.
26You blind Pharisee! first cleanse the inside of the cup and of the plate, that the outside also may be clean. (Matt. 23:25-26)
Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?
11Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me?" (John 18:11)
Cup of Anger
10he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (Rev. 14:10)
Cup of fury
19The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered great Babylon, to make her drain the cup of the fury of his wrath. (Rev. 16:19)
Cup of abominations
4The woman [Virgo] was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; (Rev. 17:4)
