During the Easter of 2014, some of the students of Imperial Academy (IA) which is sponsored by the Philadelphia Church of God, headquartered in Edmond, Oklahoma, participated in the World Irish Dance Championships 2014 held in London on 13-20 April 2014.
Jordan Saranga and Jude Flurry of IA placed 16th and 20th respectively in the recently concluded Irish dance championship. And the proud father of Jude, Stephen Flurry, even posted the result in his Twitter account:
Well, it has already been proven that Irish dance has been used by the Druids to worship the oak tree and the sun, aside from the fact that the annual celebration of the Irish dance competition always fall on the EASTER.
Now, one might ask: Is there a possibility that there could even be Druids among the ministers of the Philadelphia Church of God that has cunningly devised to introduce it to the Headquarters in Edmond, Oklahoma?
Who were the Druids? This question has agitated the minds of the learned for a long period; and various, as well as contradictory, have been the replies. Tradition preserves their memory as of a pious and superior race, prominently associated with the British Isles and France, and, in a lesser degree, with Belgium, Holland, Germany, and the lands of Scandinavia.
Much romance has been long attached to them. We hear their chants in the Stone Circles. We listen to the heaven-inspired utterances of the Archdruid, as he stands on the capstone of a cromlech, in the eye of the sun, surrounded by the white-robed throng, with the bowed worshippers afar. We see the golden sickle reverently cutting off the sacred mistletoe. We follow, in imagination, the solemn procession, headed by the cross-bearer. We look under the old oak at the aged Druid, instructing disciples in mystic lore, in verses never to be committed to writing…
With our conceptions of the ancient religions of Ireland, should we credit the Druids with the introduction of Sun worship, Serpent reverence, and the adoration of Idols? Were they, on the contrary, new comers, arriving subsequent to the establishment of these various forms of paganism, and merely known a little before the rise of Christianity in Erin? (pp. 1-2, Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, by JAMES BONWICK, F.R.G.S., Hon. Fellow of the Anthropological Institute, published in 1894)
The author believed that the credit goes to the Druids with the introduction of Sun worship, Serpent reverence, and the adoration of Idols. Could there be Druids among the PCG ministers? There are several proofs that there are indeed Druids in the midst of the Philadelphia Church of God. One major proof is the direction where the work of God is going – to Britain and Ireland, where Druidism originated.
Arthur Clive thought it not improbable that Ireland, and not Britain, as Caesar supposed, was the source of Gaulish Druidism …The learned John Toland, born in Londonderry, 1670, who was a genuine patriot in his day, believed in his country’s Druids. In the Hebrides, also, he found harpers by profession, and evidence of ancient Greek visitants. In Dublin he observed the confidence in augury by ravens. He contended that when the Ancients spoke of Britain as Druidical, they included Ireland; for Ptolemy knew Erin as Little Britain, He recognized Druids’ houses still standing, and the heathen practices remaining in his country. (p. 20-21, ibid.)
Some may say that’s preposterous and outrageous! How could that happen? Surely God will not allow it to happen to His Church. Well, how could we be so sure? Another proof is the prevalence of impostors inside God’s Church:
“For the idols have spoken vanity” (Zech. 10:2).
Here is what the word “idol” means in Lange’s Commentary:
“Teraphim, a kind of household gods …The prevalence of impostors, of the kinds here mentioned, just before the overthrow of Judah, is abundantly established”
So the “idol” being discussed in Zechariah chapter 2 is all about the prevalence of IMPOSTORS. And according to the dictionary, an impostor is one that assumes false identity or title for the purpose of deception. Now notice carefully that the Druids themselves have developed anciently a system of trickery and deception in which they plan and execute it with painstaking attention to details.
Toland, one of the earliest and most philosophical Irish writers on this subject, thus spoke of them in his History of the Druids— “who were so prevalent in Ireland, that to this hour their ordinary word for magician is Druid (Drai), the art magic is called Druidity (Druidheacht), and the wand, which was one of the badges of the profession, the rod of Druidism (Slatnan Druidheacht).” Windele, in Kilkenny records, expressed this view: “Druidism was an artfully contrived system of elaborate fraud and imposture. (p. 34, ibid.)
For better understanding, let us define some words:
1. the action or practice of imposing fraudulently upon others.
2. deception using an assumed character, identity, or name.
3. the act or an instance of deceiving others, especially by assuming a false identity
Elaborate means, planned or executed with painstaking attention to numerous parts or details.
Fraud, a deception deliberately practiced in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
2. A piece of trickery; a trick.
3 a. One that defrauds; a cheat.
b. One who assumes a false pose; an impostor.
Again as James Bonwick wrote:
“Druidism was an artfully contrived system of elaborate fraud and imposture.”
This means that the Druids were experts in imposture by doing some meticulous and thorough research first before they infiltrate an organization, then they will methodically implement their evil deceptive scheme with painstaking attention to details in order to secure unlawful gain. This is exactly what the apostle Peter admonished us through his epistle:
“Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.” (2 Pet. 1:12-16)
As the apostle Peter said that we are not to follow “cunningly devised fables.” Now, what do we mean by “cunningly devised”? Well, it came from the Greek word, “sophizo” which means,
“to render wise in a sinister acceptation, to form sophisms, that is continue plausible error.”
Let us define some words for better understanding: the word “sinister” in the dictionary also means, evil, ominous, foreboding, while “acceptation” means, a generally accepted understanding of a concept.
The word “sophism” means, an argument apparently correct in form but actually invalid; especially such an argument used to deceive; a plausible but fallacious argument; a deceptive or fallacious argumentation. While the word “fable” means falsehood or lie.
Putting all the words together, it seems that there is an evil favorable reception of a falsehood that we should be very aware of which requires a great deal of remembering. Let us then further test the spirit. Does the work in Ireland come from CUNNINGLY DEVISED FABLES? Can you REMEMBER a prior work there in Ireland which has been done by Mr. Armstrong before? This SOPHISM being mentioned by the apostle Peter was an apt description of the way of the Druids which could most likely be the problem he was facing then:
Nor ought this to seem a wonder, since to arrive at perfection in sophistry requires a long habit, as well as in juggling, in which last they were very expert: but to be masters of both, and withal to learn the art of managing the mob, which is vulgarly called leading the people by the nose, demands abundant study and exercise. (p. 59, History of the Druids by John Toland)
Unless God gives the revelation about this pagan group and expose them in the process, it is very difficult to detect Druids in an organization because they were experts in SOPHISTRY and they have even perfected it! They knew the ART OF MANAGING THE PEOPLE around them by LEADING THE PEOPLE BY THE NOSE:
lead by the nose
- To control someone and make them do exactly what you want them to do
- Conceal one’s true motives from especially by elaborately feigning good intentions so as to gain an end
3. Dominate or control someone, as in “The Moor … will tenderly be led by the nose as asses are” (Shakespeare, Othello, 1:3). This expression alludes to an animal being led by a ring passed through its nostrils. [Late 1500s]
These characteristics of Druidism could also be the most probable reason why Jude in the first century was compelled to write in his epistle a dire warning to God’s people of the very same problem which the apostle Peter saw because there were already Druids inside God’s own Church who has already crept in. And that epistle of Jude is a prophecy for us in this last end.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 1:3-4)
Certain men have crept in unawares – this could only be because they are practicing this “system of elaborate fraud and imposture” by the Druids – “who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”!
Imagine this people are ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into a license to disobey! The most abominable part is this – they are even using God’s government to implement their evil scheme! Now, God’s Church is headed toward the worst abomination any Church era had done. This is how the transgressors are coming to the full!
To better understand this subject, let us read what Mr. Flurry wrote in the Royal Vision of who the real source of this system is:
SATAN THE DEVIL HAS ENACTED A GREAT PLOT over the centuries to cover up the history of God’s Church. We need to understand this plot because it is a WARNING to God’s people today. Throughout history, God’s people have had to battle to hang on to the truth. The Apostle Paul repeatedly warned God’s people against turning to another gospel – a gospel of men rather than the gospel of God (2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6). Jude spoke of the same danger. ‘Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints’ (Jude 3). … ‘For there are certain men crept in unawares,’ verse 4 says, ‘turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,’ or lawlessness. Men who were not converted were creeping into the Church and causing serious problems…
HERBERT W. ARMSTRONG SHOWED HOW THESE PROBLEMS IN THE CHURCH AT THAT TIME, WERE LARGELY SIMON MAGUS’S DOING. Mr. Armstrong proved how Simon Magus was at work in the Corinthian church, and how Paul’s, John’s, Jude’s and Peter’s writings show that all these apostles had to battle this man’s influence…
There was a pattern: It was the same group of people basically causing all the problems. This powerful Simon Magus kept right on coming, and rebels kept growing and multiplying and continually causing problems in God’s Church. …We need to understand this because it makes it so much more clear what God’s Church is dealing with today. MR. ARMSTRONG’S INSTRUCTION IN THIS IS REALLY CRITICAL. (The True History of God’s Church Part 2, November-December 2012 issue, page 1)
SATAN THE DEVIL HAS INDEED ENACTED A GREAT PLOT EVEN TODAY! Mr. Flurry said that there was a PATTERN: “It was the same group of people basically causing all the problems. This powerful Simon Magus kept right on coming, and rebels kept growing and multiplying and continually causing problems in God’s Church. …We need to understand this because it makes it so much more clear what God’s Church is dealing with today. MR. ARMSTRONG’S INSTRUCTION IN THIS IS REALLY CRITICAL.” Indeed, it is really critical. But can we see that PATTERN? Now we may ask further; could Simon Magus be a Druid in the first place?
Since the Anglo Saxons having learned the word Dry from the Irish and British for a magician.—This etymology of the Saxon Dry from the Celtic Draoi or Draoid, pronounced Drid and Druid is confirmed by Dr. Smith in his History of the Druids, and by Dr. Jamieson in his History of the Culdees, The absurd custom of deriving everything from the Greek and Latin is now, and indeed very properly, losing ground. The Celtic Druid literally signifies a magician; and hence the translators of the New Testament into Gaelic, finding no other word in that language fit for their purpose, rendered Simon Magus, Simon the Druid. (Note II.—Page 57, History of the Druids by John Toland)
In all possibility, it was actually Simon Magus who started this religion of Druidism: “But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.” (Acts 8:9-11)
Even anthropologists observed that a great deal of Druidic beliefs has been infused to the so-called Christianity:
It was Dr. Lanigan who asserted,
“The Christian missionaries early opened schools in opposition to Druids.” It was the opinion of Arthur Clive that much Druidism “blended with the Christian learning of the seventh and subsequent centuries.” (p. 5, Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions)
For emphasis, it is said that that same Druidism has blended with the Christian learning in the early centuries, well we don’t have to wonder because even Simon Magus himself was able to infiltrate God’s own Church in the first century:
“But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.” (Acts 8:12-13)
Basically, Jude described this same group of people of Simon Magus or Simon the Druid, as those who has crept in unawares inside God’s Church who were responsible in SEPARATING THEMSELVES:
“But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit” (Jude 1:17-19).
In JFB Commentary we can read:
separate themselves–from Church communion in its vital, spiritual reality: for outwardly they took part in Church ordinances (Jude 1:12 understand it, ‘separate,’ cast out members of the Church by excommunication (Isaiah 65:5; 66:5; John 9:34 them out of the Church;” 3 John 1:10 ‘themselves,’ which indeed is read in some of the oldest manuscripts as English Version has it. Arrogant setting up of themselves, as having greater sanctity and a wisdom and peculiar doctrine, distinct from others, is implied.
Notice carefully that Jude emphasized that we can identify this group of people through their DEEDS – they “cast out members of the Church by excommunication” and we must remember that they do not have God’s Holy Spirit. And what does “excommunicate” mean?
– To deprive of the right of church membership by ecclesiastical authority.
– To exclude by or as if by decree from membership or participation in a group.
– To oust or exclude from a group or membership by decree
So, these men deprive, exclude and oust members from Church participation. This sounds like suspending and disfellowshipping members in the Church even during the first century. In the Revised Standard Version, it is rendered this way: “It is these who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.” It appears that this people were actually those were responsible in setting up divisions among the Church membership.
Well there is a striking similarity of what the Druids have implemented then, when any man did not follow their instructions or policies – that man will suffer excommunication. Now, let us read what John Toland wrote in his book, History of the Druids about Druidical excommunication:
Most terrible were the effects of the Druidical excommunication on any man, that did not implicitly follow their directions, and submit to their decrees: not only to the excluding of private persons from all benefits of society, and even from society itself; but also to the deposing of the princes who did not please them, and often devoting them to destruction. (pp. 58-59)
People were not allowed to speak to any excommunicated man. This is another PROOF that there could indeed be Druids amongst the Philadelphia Church of God ministers through the practice of excommunication by abusing God’s government with the NO CONTACT POLICY that was implemented among the Church membership. Now, notice carefully what happens further during and after a Druidical excommunication:
It was seldom that anyone was found hardly enough to rebel against their power. For such was reserved a terrible punishment. It was called Excommunication. Originating among the Hebrews, and descending from the Druids into the Roman Catholic Church, it was one of the most horrible that it is possible to conceive. At the dead of night, the unhappy culprit was seized and dragged before a solemn tribunal, while torches, painted black, gave a ghastly light, and a low hymn, like a solemn murmur, was chanted as he approached…
Then the poor wretch would wander through the woods, feeding on berries and the roots of trees, SHUNNED BY ALL AS IF HE HAD BEEN TAINTED BY THE PLAGUE, and looking to death as a salvation from such cruel miseries.
AND WHEN HE DIED, NONE DARED TO WEEP FOR HIM; they buried him only that they might trample on his grave. (pp. 58-59, The Veil of Isis or Mysteries of the Druids by William Winwood Reade)
The description written by Mr. Reade resonates a very disturbing similarity to what is happening now inside the PCG; if someone will be found rebelling against the power of an abusive minister even due to a very small matter of not following minor orders (which is most of the time not Biblically based) – they shall be branded as rebels against God’s government, either he will be suspended or disfellowshipped, then he will be SHUNNED BY ALL AS IF HE HAD BEEN TAINTED BY THE PLAGUE and WHEN HE DIES (either spiritually or physically), NONE WILL DARE TO WEEP FOR HIM. Now ask yourself, has this not happened? It has happened and is still happening!
To better understand why this is all happening, let us consider further what Mr. Reade wrote in his book:
The priesthood of the Druids stands almost alone in the history of the past. It was directed by men, with minds elevated by philosophy and learned in the human heart. But read the religious history of other nations, and you will discover how frightfully the power of the priests has been abused. …The priests invented a thousand Gods; the priests told a thousand lies; the priests instituted a thousand absurd and horrible customs. Who first taught nations to be idolaters, to be murderers but the priests. Who instituted the festival of the Juggernaut, the Inquisition, the massacre of St. Bartholomew, but the priests.
Calvin, a priest of the Reformation, ordered his victims to be burnt with green wood—a truly Christian refinement of cruelty!
Aaron, a priest, manufactured a golden calf and taught the Jews to insult their God. And it was Caiaphas, a high priest, who committed that murder of which the more virtuous heathen Pilate washed his hands.
Look everywhere, look everywhere, and you will see the priests reeking with gore. They have converted popular and happy nations into deserts, and have made our beautiful world into a slaughter house drenched with blood and tears.
Englishmen! they are planting images, they are performing ceremonies in your houses of worship which you find it impossible to understand. They are hidden from your eyes by a dark veil; it is the veil of a Pagan goddess; it is the veil of Isis. (p. 138, The Veil of Isis or Mysteries of the Druids)
The author believed and concluded that what made the priests at different times in different generations acted the way they did, like abusing their power, is chiefly because of the veil of a Pagan goddess which is THE VEIL OF ISIS (also known as ASTARTE).
Once the evil priests of Astarte have planted their graven images, anyone seeing and hearing what is being performed inside the Church will “find it impossible to understand” what is going on because of this very dark VEIL OF ASTARTE that hides it from our eyes, and only God will be able to remove that veil and expose this mysterious evil system in our midst. Here is one example of a PCG member who is so confused to what is happening inside God’s Church:
April 24, 2013
At present I feel stuck between two worlds. I’m finding myself disagreeing more and more with the sermons and the ridiculous statements coming from the sermons and people. When you spend your whole life being “taught” on a weekly basis about how you are in the “right” place and then when you realize something’s not right, it shakes you — kinda like being punched in the face and that stunned feeling that results. — Anonymous PCG Member
This is also the very same PATTERN that Mr. Armstrong’s, Mr. Flurry’s, Paul’s, John’s, Jude’s and Peter’s writings has been telling us over and over again ever since. This is what the prophet Jeremiah prophesied regarding Judah’s groves or the PCG’s images of Astarte! (Jer. 17:2) – the same graven image which the prophet Habakkuk prophesied about. (Hab. 2:18-19)
Have you noticed the pattern? According to the end-time Elijah, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong, this is the same mysterious evil system – the mystery of iniquity, which is actually the mystery of lawlessness that originated and patterned from ancient Babylon – Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. (2 Thes. 2:7; Rev. 17:5)
In this last end, have we seen something being planted as graven images (e.g. Irish dance, Mother’s Day, the work in Bricket Wood and in Ireland, etc.)?
Can you understand what the idol ministers are doing which is most of the times not Biblically based? Or is it impossible to understand? If you can’t understand it, then pray and ask for God’s Spirit that He may reveal it to you.
Let us review some of the irrefutable PROOFS of Druidism that has been infused inside the Philadelphia Church of God:
- The Irish dance which was used by the Druids as a ritual to honor the oak tree and the sun
- The principle of excommunication through the abuse of the NO CONTACT POLICY
- Apparently, CREMATION is also a Druidic custom introduced by a known Druid, Dr. William Price:
William Price (4 March 1800 – 23 January 1893) was a Welsh physician known for his support of Welsh nationalism, Chartism and his involvement with the Neo-Druidic religious movement. He has been recognized as one of the most significant figures of 19th-century Wales, and one of the most unusual in Victorian Britain…
Known for adhering to such principles as equal democratic rights for all men, vegetarianism, cremation and the abolition of marriage, all of which were highly controversial at the time, he has been widely labelled as an “eccentric” and a “radical”.
Dr. Price being a Druid himself adhered to principles of vegetarianism, cremation and the abolition of marriage which the apostle Paul specifically described in his epistles:
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.” (1 Tim. 4:1-3)
Vegetarianism (commanding to abstain from meats), and the abolition of marriage (forbidding to marry) are distinct doctrines of the Druidic religion, add to that cremation, which according to the apostle Paul are DOCTRINES OF THE DEVIL! It looks like even during his ministry, he was battling the same evil religious system of Simon the Druid!
Let’s consider one frightening account supposedly experienced by a PCG member with a PCG minister visiting his house:
April 29, 2013
…The following account is true. I have family members that can confirm what I related to them years ago and the man who told me of his experience this past week.
A few years ago Marvin Campbell and Cal Culpepper came to my house. They both sat on the couch across from the chair I was setting in. Culpepper gave me looks that really frightened me and which has bothered me ever since. I told my family members about it at the time. Then the other day I was talking to someone else and they said that Culpepper would roll his eyes up and look at him with just the whites of his eyes. When he said that, I was shocked. That is exactly what Culpepper did sitting on my couch. Several times he would roll his eyes and look at me with the whites. It was very upsetting. I had never seen anything like that before outside of a Hollywood movie. The other man whom it happened to asked Marvin Campbell about it and Campbell said it was a DEMON. — Anonymous
It seems like the Philadelphia Church of God is already giving heed to seducing spirits and some has departed from the faith because of the Druids who has crept in unawares inside the PCG. And most likely, they are using God’s government to achieve their ultimate plan of abomination! The final touch of their cunningly devised fables is the work in Bricket Wood and in Ireland where modern Druidism originated! Even the chief college of the Druids was at Tara Hill! (p. 260, The Sacred Tara Hill, from Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions)
Tara was even the name of the mother goddess in the Druidic religion. That name Tara (also known to be Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth) actually means star:
Citing Barbara Walker (1983, 452), “ancient sources from Akkadia show that Ishtar was the same Great Goddess revered all over the Near East under such names as Dea Syria, Astarte, Cybele, Aphrodite, Kore, Mari, etc”. In fact, Tara, Ishtar, Astarte, Inanna, Ashtoreth, are interrelated (different pagan cultures developing name variants as traditions changed and the ages passed). Several are worshipped under the star symbol. In Bengali, Tara means star. (http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=2146411660)
THE PHILADELPHIA CHURCH OF GOD COULD MOST PROBABLY BE UNDER SIEGE BY THE DRUIDS IN THEIR MIDST! This is prophesied to happen!
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thes. 2:1-3)
That “man of sin” according to Mr. Armstrong was referring to Simon the Sorcerer. And he has a group of men which the prophet Ezekiel saw – 25 of them inside the inner court worshipping the sun toward the east (Ezek. 8:16). The Irish dance which was used by the Druids to WORSHIP the oak tree and the SUN is a MAJOR PROOF of their existence at this very moment even in God’s house – the Armstrong Auditorium!
“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” (vv. 4-11)
Remember that the Druids have perfected sophistry – they were very expert in it. As anthropologist James Bonwick wrote: “Druidism was an artfully contrived system of elaborate fraud and imposture.” Unless God remove the scales from our eyes, we cannot see this mystery of lawlessness. This very MYSTERY was exposed by Mr. William Reade: “they (referring to the priests) are planting images, they are performing ceremonies in your houses of worship which you find it impossible to understand. They are hidden from your eyes by a dark veil; it is the veil of a Pagan goddess; it is the veil of Isis.” – Or the VEIL OF ASTARTE! It is the same prophecy Jeremiah prophesied:
“Whilst their children remember their altars and their groves by the green trees upon the high hills” (Jer. 17:2).
According to Strong’s Concordance, the word “groves” is from H842:
asherah (or Astarte) a Phoenician goddess; also an image of the same
Oh, how great and mysterious this VEIL OF ASTARTE is! Who would dare try to remove it?
