I was just reading these posts, and remembered that years ago, I was having a conversation with Rabbi Avraham Feld and my friend Yair Davidy, about the Christians and lost Israelites. Rabbi Feld pointed out that the scripture in the book of Revelations, saying that Jesus was the bright morning star, was a reference to HaSatan, and that the Christians worshipped HaSatan, without realising it.
Interesting ?

In my eyes that's a case of the pot calling the kettle black.  When actually both are the same color.  We could make them white pots, and it wouldn’t matter.

hasatan “the accuser,” or “the adversary.”.  In the stories we’ve read, was Jesus an adversary of the Jewish Priests ?, yes.  Did he accuse them of things ?, yes. 

In my opinion both the Jewish Priests, and Jesus in the stories were Serpent Kings, Serpent Priests. All from the same root so to speak.  Not meaning evil devil snake, but one who has knowledge, wisdom, holds the secret mysteries, expertise in astronomy, astrology, architecture, medicine, music, poetry and metaphysical philosophy.

I think there was a split, a divide between those who held the ancient teachings.

Of course you are right Diane,
I know what you mean, those who split, probably had no idea that the adversary they were faceing, was of the same spiritual cast, so to speak.
Probably the influence of the imbalanced male/female spirituality turning shared wisdom into a contest between wizards .

I honestly don't know.  Please don't say Of course I'm right....I'm searching just like you.  You're always so very sweet, and I love you as a person all the more for it. 

Say there was a natural disaster, maybe more than one.  As in real life, we know that a whole group of very wise people probably will not agree on everything.  We can see that with our own peoples.

So say there was a group of very advanced people.  They fled, separated after a natural disaster of some kind.  I believe they were located in the northern west.  Not certain of course, that's research and putting clues together. Some fled to Egypt, and other areas south east.  They all basically believed the same things, with exceptions. I think the exceptions become evident in the different religions and paths people took.  Maybe a group of these wise men thought women shamans were the cause of their troubles, and saw the answers in a more male dominated society.  The male thing isn't all...there's all the threats from all the religions like, "you'll go straight to hell" , if you don't believe my way. You'll get a bunch of virgins if you follow this path. You know, I'm sure you see it too.   These folks were way above that, and they used our own fears to win the common people to their sides.

So the Jewish priests had a wonderful knowledge, yet so did the people who belonged to the "other side"-call it the Jesus side if that fits.  Neither is totally wrong, or totally evil.  They're both from the same mold.  They battled with their wits and beliefs, call each other names, made up bad stories about the other side, but they were really from the same mold to begin with.  Not sure if you can follow that train of thought.  I  try very hard to get to the original knowledge without all the back and forth over who is right and who is wrong, who is on the side of evil and who is not. 

If it feels wrong to you on the inside, then it probably is.  The battle is always within us.  The wizards can battle all they want.  Go with your heart.

I'm with you Diane, I'm thinking that it was maybe as you have said, at least something like that. The puzzle certainly does seem to fit together along those lines.
Cant wait to meet you one day, when we all get together.
Love and light to you sister.
May the Supreme Spirit, the Creator of all, be your constant guide and friend.

Sha'ul and I discussed some of this privately, specifically one of the most notable theological splits in Jewish history. This split was between the two most influential Jewish leaders of the time, Hillel and Shammai. An abbreviated history of these leaders and their conflict can be read about through the links below:

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/7698-hillel

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/13498-shammai

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/3190-bet-hillel-and-bet-shammai

What is particularly interesting to me, was that this internal Jewish conflict was at its zenith during the life and times of Jesus. Hillel died when Jesus was a boy, and Shammai and his theological descendants were in control of the Sanhedrin and Jewish priesthood throughout the rest of Jesus' life. We read in the various Gospels on how Jesus disputed and condemned much of the priesthood of his day, and eventually how the Sanhedrin plotted to arrest and kill him. What is notable here is that many of the theological Teachings of Hillel closely match the Teachings of Jesus. We also read in Jewish history how when the House of Shammai was in power, they plotted with the Zealots to betray and murder many prominent rabbis of the House of Hillel. It wasn't until after the destruction of Solomon's Temple during the Jewish rebellion against the Romans, that Jewish Law and Theology again favored the House of Hillel, and has sided with Hillel to this day. It seems unfortunate that the majority of Jews reject one of their greatest prophets (Messiah?), based on a theological rejection (Shammai's) of Him which the Jews since have long since rejected themselves in favor of the Teachings of Hillel. In other words, the Teachings of Jesus closely resemble the Teachings of Hillel, which the Jews now accept. Yet Jesus is rejected as a Jewish prophet because he happened to live during the short-lived theological reign of Shammai, even though he taught as Hillel, which is now accepted Law. Yet such is the folly of men that they remain loyal to and defend the mistakes and inconsistencies of their Fathers...

Interesting too that the above connection with Jesus to the dispute of Hillel and Shammai is conveniently (almost) never mentioned by Jewish or Christian historians and theologians... Proper historical context would clearly more closely link Jews and Christians, as they are truly brothers, but it is evident that certain Powers that Be can't have that.

The wizards can battle all they want.

Celestial Powers battle, which influences and sets the tone of the battle of wizards, which influences and sets the tone of the internal and external battles of the common man. Sides are drawn and choices are made. Think you can straddle the fence or not choose a side? Think again, you will be drafted as an unconscious pawn. So, choose well, or others will choose for you...

I was just reading these posts, and remembered that years ago, I was having a conversation with Rabbi Avraham Feld and my friend Yair Davidy, about the Christians and lost Israelites. Rabbi Feld pointed out that the scripture in the book of Revelations, saying that Jesus was the bright morning star, was a reference to HaSatan, and that the Christians worshipped HaSatan, without realising it.
Interesting ?

I think Rabbi Feld is correct without realizing how he is correct. Lucifer, when idolized or worshiped, becomes your personal accuser and Satan. He becomes an adversary you struggle against in daily life seeking for his favor and gifts. This is as true when Christians idolize, externalize, and worship Christ, or when Jews idolize, externalize, and worship Yahweh. The bright morning star will be the light to guide you home to the Heavens; but when it becomes your idol (Satan), you will make it/Him your accuser as you suffer on your knees. How will you react to the bright morning star, fall on your knees or be guided to join the hosts of Heaven? Lucifer becomes Satan in your own Soul based on your reaction internally, and the Light of the Supreme Spirit shines within and without based on this decision and personal awareness.

(Just don't make the mistake of Lucifer, thinking YOU ARE the Supreme Spirit as your own light grows, for this is how one 'falls' through their pride.)

Wow Len, what a post !

Its true, Jews often say, "We Jews, have no worse enemy, than the Jews", only what you said needs some clarification on my part, if you will ?
Jews today, Rabbi's included, don't even think about Jesus, its not in anypart of Jewish teaching, he is viewed a"the goy god", Jesus for goyim, HaShem for Jews. This is of course sad, and a misguided concept of what , and who, Jesus is to Christians, though some do still think Jesus is a god, or G-d.
When I was a yeshiva bocher ( Torah student", at Bat Ayin in Judea, I had with me my olf faithful King James Bible. I once showed it to Rabbi Hannan, my teacher, and some friends of mine. They were very curous to touch it, and on request of a dear friend and fellow Talmud of mine, I was allowed to read some of Jesus's words in Mathew to them, just as an educational enterprise. I read some of the sermon on the MT, actualy Rav Hannan had heard of it, and thought it might not be too radical. Well, they were all amazed at how "Jewish" it sounded, and Rav Hannan banged the table "AHA" !"That's a quote from Rav Hallel", he shouted, and had me read to the end. It was then he explained to us, he being an Orthodox Hassidic settler style Rabbi, in a Yeshiva in Judea, how it was that Y'shua (Jesus), had been a student of Hallel !
That's where I first heard about that. I didn't read them anymore, but I had plenty of questions asked of me after that by my friends, as I never hid the fact that I had been a Christian years before.
Really spiritual seeker type Jews, don't hate Jesus, they don't know him, and they don't understand, or know, their history. If they did, they may well see him as a great Jewish teacher.
The main issue with Jesus, for me also, is the human sacrifice for sin aspect, that, to Judaism, is totally pagan, and an unacceptable Christian doctrine.
The last part of your post makes a lot of sense too, about creating your own adversary.

Yes, I agree, most interesting, and you're reply as well.

The main issue with Jesus, for me also, is the human sacrifice for sin aspect, that, to Judaism, is totally pagan, and an unacceptable Christian doctrine.

Many religions can be considered pagan.  Usually any religion other than Christianity, Judaism, or Islam.  They say the word Pagan is from the Latin word paganus which meant countryman.     Paganism can be a term for a person who follows a Nature-based religion.  I tend to agree with a more nature based theology.

My Grandmother on my mothers side was a Dennehy.  I have cousins who are Finns.  They arrived in the USA from Ireland and Northern Scotland in the early 1900's.  I enjoy researching the Druids, celts, and their History.  Druidism is considered to be pagan, and Jesus under a different name was part of it.

I think the whole human sacrifice for sin in regards to Jesus has been a bit twisted, and the pagans in this case should not be blamed for this error.  Don't get my feelings wrong here.  I could read the words attributed to Jesus all day long, and have great respect for the teacher.  I feel too that if Paganism was removed from any of the top three religions, we would have nothing left but science. A recent book that I purchased describes the relationship of Jesus and the Druids fairly well, I'll let the author tell the story.  But always keep in mind that even the best authors can throw their own prejudice into their version.
Best to read things and then research them on your own.

Quote
During their rites, the Druids located a tree in the shape of a cross, or lopped off the branches of a specifically chosen oak to make a cruciform. Upon this tree the name Hesus was usually inscribed. The party of Druids present at the ceremony of Iesa would face Eastward toward the rising of the sun and sing hymns and chant to the newborn Son of the Sun. The very word east derives from his name. It was only later that certain groups assimilated the custom and made a travesty of it that a physical man appeared to hang in pain from a tree...
 
The T-shaped tree represented the Tinne and Tau letter of the sacred alphabets, and connoted death and rebirth. The letter “T” served the same meaning as Greek Omega. Christ, who is associated with this letter, is based on Iesa who was in previous ages associated with the Tau, the hierogram of which was the tree or cross. Jesus is still referred to as Essa in the Koran and was known by that name to both the Arabs and the Copts (Egyptian Christians). In Northern India Iesa is remembered as Issa or Essa. From this word we derive “essence,” “Essene” and “esoteric.” Other versions of the name are Yesu, Hesu, Esus and Aesar meaning “He who creates (or brings) the fire.” The Celtic Heus or Esus was a mysterious god of Gaul.

Quote
Esa or Iesa was the third deity of the Druidic Trinity of Bel, Taranis and Esa. His name meant “The Raised One.” His element was wind. This was picked up by Gnostics and Christians and transformed into the “Ruach,” “Pneuma,” and finally the “Holy Spirit.” Esa was commonly shown hovering in the sky or cutting from a tree in the guise of a carpenter. Suggestively, he was often depicted hanging from a great tree while being stabbed to death. According to Druidic tradition Esus’ life-blood healed the earth. It purified and revivified the land allowing for a new season’s abundance. The Druids understood the land to be literally born again from the blood of the sacrificed Esus.  Michael Tsarion The Irish Origins of Civilization

Below is a sketch of Esus.  They would put a board on the tree with the name Esus.  I believe it was the tree that was sacrificed in the name of Esus, and the life blood of the tree purified the land.  In this case, there were no people being hung from a tree and being sacrificed.  It was symbolic of a God giving the blood of life to the land.

Ok Diane, for once I must disagree with you, unless I read you wrong.
The Hebrews never "picked up " Ruach from any Druid type theology, or anybody else for that matter. I realise you have posted anothers writtings, but still I must make the point.
Ru'ach, in Hebrew means a wind, spirit,breath or unseen power, and is an ancient Hebrew word, before Druids were even thought of. It is said, for instance that Elohim blew His Ru'ach, into Adams nostrals, and he became a living soul.
Essene, in Hebrew, "acyia" Healers, as they healed with herbs and incantations. This name also, has nothing to do with anything outside the Jewish religious world in the 1st 2nd century.
I don't know where some of these people get there info from.
I'm not growling or anything, just thought you might like to be enlightened.
Love and light to you dear sister.
Don't be discouraged !!!
