If Ditu is the life of life of life of humanity, the chief spiritual world power and the breeding ground of joy on earth, it is a certainty that His Spiritual Authority is much higher than whatever any religion has presented to mankind. As the life of life of life of humanity, it is absurd to consider him as being as par with saviours and sons of God of the organized religions of the world. Similarly, if Ditu, is the Chief Spiritual World Power of now, it carries an undisputed injunction that He is the sole spiritual administrator of the world until the end of his tenure. Lastly, if Ditu is the breeding ground of joy on earth, it means that all the components of today’s joy, namely, spiritual, financial, political and military attributes are woven into his divine kingship.
Based on the above, Ditu performs all the functions ascribed both to God and Satan of worldly religions. As the source of spiritual power, He is in the realm of a very powerful God (often referred to as the father of the father of the sons of God. But as the provider of financial, military and political successes, He is in the realm of Satan because the physical world is said to be under the control of Lucifer, the so-called prince of darkness. If all the ingredients of the material success are within the ambit of Ditu, He is the Chief Architect of the theatre of fun in the matter kingdom. Similarly, if all the key components of spirituality are under His firm control, He is as well the Chief Architect of the sea of fun in all the spiritual planes within the band of duality. Lastly, we can rightly conclude that Ditu is the Architect of Fun both in the matter and spiritual kingdoms.
Having said that Ditu is the breeding ground of joy on earth, it is wrong to assert that the gift of Nature is sinful. What matters most is the application of freewill, freely provided to every individual, in respect of both the pursuit of the goal and in the utilization of the benefit. For example, if the money-making process is within the law, physically, culturally and psychically, and if the welfare of the poor is of primary concern, in the expenditure of it, then the individual can be said to have synchronized his role with that of Chukwu whose face is always upon the poor.
It is a divine law that every avatar must follow rigidly the full course of biology in birth and parentage and must attain the mandatory age of 30 years before He receives the Universal Rod of Power. In fact, at the age of 30 years, He undergoes through initiatory rites in which He is sworn-in as the Avatar. During the inauguration of the incumbent, His successor is also appointed, and from the date of His appointment to the date of His inauguration, His parentage, genealogy and cultural passage are carefully crafted and knotted together with adequate templates to safeguard the young spiritual king until he is 30 years when he takes Oath of office and begins his mission.
In plain language, every Avatar must pass through normal birth to feel the dynamics of life in the mortal frame for at least 30 years and above before spending the rest of his tenure in the world of the dead. His brief stay in the physical world is primarily to enable him to come to terms with the task before him. This is mandatory because he is both the Avatar of the living and the dead. Based on the above divine procedure, the concept of Immaculate Conception is a hoax. Lastly, the immaculate conception of Mary, the mother of Jesus, by the Holy Ghost was both absurd and fallacy, and if we stretch ourselves further, we can rightly conclude that the outcome of that union (the union of Mary and Angel) walked comfortably into the realm of idolatry, prostitution and waywardness.
In the previous discourse, we dwelt primarily on the spirit and its clothings but in this episode, we will be looking at the planet wherein we live in three different perspectives, namely, the physical assessment, scientific postulates and spiritual dynamics. Similarly, we will be looking at the Roman Empire and its religious tools of conquests and subsequent colonization, including of course the gift of Christianity.
Greeks taught us that the Earth was the center of the universe but modern-day knowledge taught us otherwise. The Earth is only a tiny planet circling a single star with limitless energy. Einstein’s general theory of relativity, telescopes and satellites have broadened our understanding of the solar system and beyond. The sun generates light and heat which are transmitted through the space to sustain life on earth and other planets. The Earth (about 93 million miles away from the sun) receives energy from the sun at a fairly constant rate which is distributed unevenly because of the tilt of earth’s axis. This uneven distribution of sun’s energy results in seasonal changes in temperature. This thin protective envelope, rich in vital mixture of substances from which life has evolved, including high oxygen and nitrogen content, shields us from the hazards of outer space.
The sun, one of more than 100 billion stars, is unique because of its planetary system comprising of four solid planets and four gaseous planets. The first four planets, namely, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are solid ones while the last four planets, namely Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are gaseous ones. All have varying types of atmosphere but only the earth is unique for having traces of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere consisting mainly of nitrogen and oxygen, a combination of oceans of liquid water and abundant plant life. Most importantly too, is the fact that only the planet earth does sustain human life. Lastly, science told us that “oxygen only began to build up when primitive forms of life developed photosynthesis. Oxygen reacts to form ozone, which protects the surface of the planet from intense ultraviolet radiation. Life has crafted the environment of the blue planet to suit itself”. The nearest star to us is about 4.5 light years (about 25 trillion miles away).
Unlike other planets whose orbits are elliptical, the Earth’s orbit is close to circular. The Earth revolves around the sun in counterclockwise as well as spins on its axis that enables it to pass through the north and south poles in the same counterclockwise. It has a diameter of 7925 miles at the Equator but with the core retaining a temperature of 40000C and this does appear to be similar to the temperature of the surface of the Sun. The magma which constitutes the core is composed of solid iron while the outer zone is composed of liquid iron wherein the Earth’s magnetic field originates. As we walk from the core’s outer space, we pass through Earth’s mantle (the dense rock) to the Earth’s crust (a skin of lightweight rocks) which is about 36 miles in thickness.
The Earth is the only watery planet in the solar system, with more than 70% of it covered with water, primarily oceans, seas and ice. The oceans contain massive submarine depths where sunlight cannot penetrate thereby making it difficult to sustain few creatures. However, at that depth, some organisms are said to be living on methane seeping through the sea floor and thereby acting as a substitute to sunlight.
The view of science on the origins of the universe can be expressed thus: “the modern view of the origins and future of the universe is based on the idea of a Big Bang that marked the beginning of the ongoing expansion of the universe. Galaxies do not fly away from each other through space, rather, space itself expands, carrying the galaxies with it. The Big Bang was not an explosion in space but an explosion of space and time. All of space and time arose in the Big Bang. There was no time before the Big Bang, and all of space was involved”.
“Ten to fifteen billion years ago, the universe of space and time began, as a hugely hot cauldron of energy governed by physical laws that we do not yet understand. Within a tiny fraction of a second the expansion after the Big Bang had moderated the conditions to a point from which (we believe) our current understanding of physical laws can begin to describe what happened. We see most galaxies across billions of light years, as those galaxies were when the universe was younger”.
From the above scientific observations, it is clear that both the earth and the solar system are unique, an implied assertion that something beyond the laws of science acted on them. If we are to be guided by the laws of science, all the four solid planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) must be barren and without life.
Similarly, if all the other three planets namely Mercury, Venus and Mars revolve around the sun in elliptical manner but only the Earth does so differently, why? In like manner only the Earth has adequate protective shield over its inhabitants. It is also strange that only the Earth is a water planet, which even the furthest of the solid planet cannot boast of, why? Lastly, if in the entire solar system only the earth does host life of the type of mankind, then we cannot deny the existence of an unseen power at work. If the laws of Physics are unable to explain, satisfactorily too, these glaring differences, one is at liberty to conclude that the only answer is the input of the Divine Wheel.
The Divine Wheel in this context refers to our creators who blended us with our immediate environment for the life of humanoid to be actualized. As said earlier, the human body is the vehicle of expression of the spirit in the physical world. If the Kongis (the spirit in our Form and shape but clothed with higher vibrating energy) occupy the highest spiritual plane in any planet they elect to exist, it is a confirmation that spirits in our form and shape live in other planets, moons and stars, whether solid, watery or gaseous. A further proof that spirits in our form and shape are not alone in the entire fabric of Nature. What is absolutely rare in the cosmos is the existence of spirits in the clothing of Man, in regards to its chemistry and biology, clothed ofcourse with the mind to guide him as he walks within the band of the Geography of the planet, Earth.
In some of my out-of-body excursions, I watched two videos which dwelt on the landing of the seven Gods (the creators of humanity) from a distant star, and secondly on the exact location where our creators landed to begin their creative duties. In the first video, I saw myself standing on desert-like-ground, similar to what obtains in Mars, and watching the descent of the seven Gods in whose image and shape we were created. As they were about two feet from the ground, the leader of the team (Lumech I) thought of something to sustain them in the new territory, and immediately vegetation began to sprout out of the ground. I did not see any rainfall but vegetation could not have begun if the soil was not simultaneously infused with water. In a single operation, everything necessary to sustain them was put in place, including vegetation, water and the type of air to sustain life on Earth. This singular act is a proof that life on the planet was not put in place by the power of the spoken word but by the power of thought. Everything any of those seven Gods thought manifested immediately. In other words, the pulsation and vibration from their thinking faculties were their creative tools.
It does carry an implied understanding that as they were descending or rather passing through the solar system they must have not only aligned the solar system to fall in line with their mission but also tinkered with the revolution of the Earth around the sun by creating the rotation of the earth on its own axis to ensure that sunlight is made available to every part of the Earth. It is as well a fact that thought is far more powerful than spoken word. By thinking we are tasking our core spiritual selves (the gods which dwell in us) to address immediate challenges facing us and they do respond to these requests through intuition or inspiration. Unfortunately, our noble minds in science and technology have failed to factor the source of inspiration in their views about life because they regard inspiration as belonging to the realm of fantasy or at best the mind.
It is also a fact of life that all meaningful contributions to the advancement of science and technology were made by great thinkers and not by great orators. This strengthens the fact that vexation, whether expressed openly or not is a more potent force in the modification of spiritual templates as we walk down the spiritual ladder. To mystics, silent but concentrated prayers are more potent than noise-making which is the trend in all religious practices. According to the New Webster’s Dictionary, the mind is the seat of consciousness, thought, feeling and will; the intellect and the like. If the above is true, then the mind is the seat of the core spiritual self, the spark of God in dwelling in mankind. The mind is in the brain which is the point of contact through which the spark reaches the central nervous system and all other organs of the flesh. As the vehicle of the Divine Essence, it is the carrier of the life force, the record of mankind’s deeds beginning with the past and passing through now to the future.
In the second video, the map of Africa with lines of Cancer, Equator and Capricorn drawn on it, was presented and the area they landed boldly identified. They tarried there for a while, increased their population through procreative processes and embarked on enhanced modification of their environment before migration and dispersion towards north, south, east and west, but many moved northwards towards the horn of Africa and Egypt. As they moved outwards, some settled and called such settlements their homeland, villages and clans which ended up as territories. Based on the co-ordinates of what I saw, Lumechs and Dumechs landed on the northern side of Capricorn and bounded by northern South Africa, Mozambique, Eastern Botswana and Zimbabwe in today’s map of Africa. All the seven Gods were blacks and this creates the impression that other human colours came into existence as part of the procreative activities of our makers.
It must be emphasized that Nature is of limitless diversity not only in shape, size and configuration but also in sound, colour and vibration. So far science has taken deep steps in the understanding of this truth, especially in the field of microbiology and particle physics and our endless march towards the enfoldment of the basic tools of the creative force, the god particle. In Geography, the compositions of planets, solar systems, galaxies and universes are remarkably different but within the general pattern of basic laws, arrangements and templates on which the entire cosmos rest. This creative chemistry is again reduced to the level of humanity wherein we have various skin types, namely, black, red, white, yellow and green. Lastly, it is certainly a fact that various skin pigments must have evolved from the seven black Gods who kicked-off today’s human existence in the planet.
Lastly, I had an audio conversation with the seven Gods (Lumechs and Dumechs) and they told me that they came from a distant star, 19 billion light years away. If 4.5 light years means 25 trillion miles, then it is rational to conclude that 19 billion light years is similar to infinity. Yet we have not been told that the span of the universe is 19 billion light years only. Similarly, even if we conclude that our parentage came from the hub of creation, we may be talking of nothing less than 50 billion light years from brothers and sisters of Lumechs and Dumechs who chose to travel in opposite direction of the hub. What I want you to understand is that man is very far away from the home of the third impulse on whose shape and form we evolved. To put the record straight, the third impulse created everything with body, including the stars, planets and everything contained therein.
As the pro-creative activities progressed, two streams of problems arose, namely, population exposition and loss of spiritual powers. Over time, the gap widened and to address this unfolding scenario the need to set up a council to oversee both the universal and cultural laws arose. The universal laws took care of the actions of all spirits while the cultural laws were tailored to address all issues arising from non-compliance of the rules, norms and values of cultures of spirits-in-embodiment.
On 13th February 76,850 BC, the spiritual council was established to oversee the selection, appointment and inauguration of the head of the universal spiritual government, with the responsibility to administer the world of humanity. The vehicle for the externalization of the teachings of Avatars and Rope Travellers has remained the prerogative of the Avatar concerned. Each Avatar chooses his own vehicle which ends with his avatarship. Ditu chose Kuu Lam Chee Brotherhood as the channel to address mankind of his time and tenure. Lastly and most importantly too, be informed in very clear terms that all spirits-in-embodiment whose scores have exceeded 80% are tagged saints and are no longer under the law of cause and effects. We are not referring to religious saints whose selections are based on selfish interests of the path or religion concerned, as well as the psychic and mystical deeds woven into the apparatus of the miracle worker who is certainly not within the realm of spirituality.
The Roman Republic and Empire
Rome passed through three main phases, namely, monarchy, the Republic and the empire. The monarchy was sacked through military defeat by the Etruscan king of Clusium, but before he could settle down, Rome adopted two annually elected magistrates called consuls. As Rome progressed in nation building, two powerful groups emerged, the patricians and the plebeians. Patricians referred to the aristocrats while plebeians referred to the commoners to which the writer of this article belongs. The two consuls were military generals with the responsibility to lead Roman armies to war, but in times of extreme circumstances, the supreme command was instituted for a period not more than six months.
Rome received its first laws in 451 BC, yet they continued to wage war against themselves but only came together when there was a common enemy. Rome began to expand at the expense of the Etruscans but they were unable to hold marauding gallic tribe which sacked Rome in 390 BC. As Rome advanced southwards, they had to face cartage, and after three Punic wars, Hannibal, the Carthaginian general was defeated by Scipio Africanus, the Roman general, and this led to complete destruction of Carthage in 146 BC. Rome appointed governors with absolute powers over conquered territories, with the need to exercise appropriate force where necessary. Unfortunately, in Rome itself, farmers became increasingly disadvantaged in competing with farm products from colonies with lower production costs. This ugly development created restlessness, unrest and revolution which aided the transition of Rome from Republic to Empire. However, it does appear that the major cause of the collapse of the Republic was the friction between Pompey and Julius Caesar.
Rome faced two major civil wars. The first civil war came into being through social disorder arising from granting all royal Italians citizenship to who would challenge king of Pontus (Mithridates VI), who not only overran the Roman Province of Asia in 88 BC, but also slaughtered many Romans. To address this challenge, Sulla marched his troops into Rome and routed his political opponents, and with the backing of Senate was authorized to face Mithridates VI. In 81 BC, Sulla became a dictator and afflicted very heavy losses on his enemies, but as the anarchy was still persistent, Sulla was forced to resign and withdraw from public life in 78 BC.
Lucius Licinius Lucullus, former lieutenant of Sulla resumed the offensive against Mithridates and achieved victory over the Pontic ruler. He was succeeded by a more illustrious military general, Pompey the great, who aided Sulla in defeating foes of the regime in Italy, Gaul, and Spain. He also routed the pirate’s fleets in Mediterranean and destroyed their bases in 67 BC. In 66 BC, Pompey the great took over from Lucullus in the Mithidatic war and brought the long war to an end in 63 BC. Back home, Pompey allied with Crassius, Rome’s richest man and Julius Caesar who became Consul in 59 BC during which he facilitated bills to ratify Pompey’s eastern settlement and to provide land for his veterans. Caesar’s achievement in the west and Pompey’s victories in the east formed the platform which the republic stood. Unfortunately, after the death of Crassius, enemies of Caesar began to align with Pompey and this prompted the Senate to recall Caesar without genuine reason. The decision of Senate to recall Caesar unjustly triggered the second civil war.
To avoid imprisonment, death and humiliation, Julius Caesar marched down with his troops, crossed over the Rubicon and ceased power in Rome and began to chase Pompey and his allies. Due to their massive supporters and enormous resources, Caesar’s and Pompey’s battles raged for more than four years in Italy, Spain, Greece, Egypt, Asia minor and North Africa but Caesar’s victory at Pharasalus in 48 BC sealed Pompey’s fate. However, Pompey’s supporters contained the struggle for two more years, but again Caesar’s victories at Thapsus in North Africa in 46 BC and Munda in Spain in 45 BC, backed ofcourse by the suicide of Cato terminated the resistance.
After the assassination of Julius Caesar on 15th March 44 BC, two camps emerged. One group composed of Brutus and Cassius, the co-plotters of Caesars assassination while the second group comprised of Caesar’s rugged and ambitious lieutenant, Marcus Antonius (Marc Anthony) and Caesar’s grandnephew, Octavian who was named heir and adopted son in Caesar’s will, with a third arm in the person of Marcus Aemilius Lepidus. Marc Anthony, Octavian and Lepidus formed the second triumvirate with the official mandate to take control of the state. With the execution of Cicero and the defeat of Brutus and Cassius at the battle of Philippi in Macedonia, the last resistance in the Republic was eliminated. Octavian removed Lepidus from power in 36 BC.
In 32 BC, the Senate declared war on Cleopatra who received suzerainty over most of the territories of Near East from Marc Anthony. However, Cleopatra, in company of Marc Anthony, was defeated in naval engagement at Actium in 31 BC. Cleopatra and Marc Anthony fled to Egypt and committed suicide in 30 BC. Octavian became the conqueror of Egypt and the entire East. The second civil war lasted for over 20 years. It began when Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon in 49 BC and ended when Octavian Caesar was crowned the emperor of Rome in January 27 BC.
Octavian Caesar presented his compromise plan to the Senate, pretending to resign all his office and restore the Republic, but was overruled by the Senate claiming that Rome would not survive without him. In recognition of this understanding, the Senate conferred on Octavian the name Augustus (revered) and thereafter began to address him as “Imperator Caesar Augustus, son of God”. Before then, his adoptive father, Julius Caesar had been deified. If Julius Caesar had become God (or at least Godlike), his adopted son was perfectly right to assume the title of the son of God. This idea was further developed by Titus Flavius who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.
Before going into Rome’s religious rites and beliefs, let us briefly look at Rome’s greatest general. Gaius Julius Caesar was a celebrated roman general, statesman, conqueror of Gaul, victor of the civil war and lastly dictator of the Roman Republic for life. He served in all the departments of the state, especially in military, judiciary, politics and priesthood. Julius Caesar was born on 13th July 100 BC and was assassinated on 15th March 44 BC by Senators of the Roman Republic led by Gaius Cassius and Marcus Brutus who once benefited from Caesar’s clemency. He changed the course of Greco-Roman society, although long extinct, but two names, Gaius Caesar and Alexander the great, are still in people’s lips throughout the world. To honour Julius Caesar, July, the month of his birth, was included in the official calendar of the empire, which had slight modifications thereafter but without affecting his retention in today’s calendar.
Julius Caesar traced his lineage to the goddess Venus which entitled him to be seen as a patrician, a member of the aristocratic class, although Roman nobles were required to win distinctions themselves. Caesar preferred political route not solely for honours but in order to achieve powers and use same for the misgoverned Romans. But when he stood before the statue of Alexander the great and read Alexander’s accomplishments, he vowed to pursue his ambitions in the military and requested to be as great as Alexander, if not greater. At that point he was already 33 years while Alexander accomplished his deeds below the age of 33. The time lag between the death of Alexander and when Gaius Julius Caesar stood before his statute is 250 years. It was unlikely that Caesar was interested in absolute power until after he crossed the Rubicon in 49 BC.
En-route to Rhodes to study Oratory, Julius Caesar was captured by pirates whose ransom demands appeared insulting and in his usual manner, he requested them to increase the demand to befit his status which they did. However, he informed them that he was coming back to not only recover the ransom but to as well have them executed. This he flawlessly carried out.
As previously stated, the first triumvirate in Roman history consisting of Pompey, Crassius and Caesar was formed in 60 BC, but in 59 BC Caesar began military campaign in Gaul which ended in 50 BC. His consulship was sponsored by Crassius who compelled him to repay 25% of the debt before proceeding to Gaul, and this was complied with. But after the death of Crassius which left Pompey the sole power in Rome, the Senate instructed Caesar to lay down his command and return to Rome alone.
However, Caesar decided otherwise and chose to move down to Rome with his legions. On realizing that Caesar was moving down with his troops and that there was no army to halt Caesar’s advances, Pompey moved out of Rome in search of legions to stop Caesar’s entry into Rome. Time was against him. Without any obstacle, Caesar crossed the Rubicon, in defiance to the laws of Rome, and took control of Rome without a fight. After a brief stay in Rome, Caesar began to chase Pompey and in August 9, 48 BC at Pharasalus, he achieved decisive victory against Pompey.
Caesar pursued Pompey to Egypt where Pompey was murdered by one of king Ptolemy’s officers. Egyptian king Ptolemy presented Pompey’s head to Caesar as a gift in the belief that Caesar was going to appreciate his deeds but the opposite was the case. To Caesar, it was a humiliation that a great Roman general of the status of Pompey would be beheaded by a non-Roman. Instead of being pleased, he opted to support Ptolemy’s sister, Cleopatra and then drew a sword of war against Ptolemy who got drowned in River Nile. He tarried in Alexandria where he fell in love with Queen Cleopatra. It is also being asserted that they had an issue, a male child for that matter.
Caesar fought and won a local war in Anatona where he made one of his most important military statements, namely, I came, I saw, I conquered. As he returned, he was made dictator for life. His last two wars were between 47 BC and 45 BC where he crushed two insurrections in Africa and Spain. Back home, he began to put Greco-Roman world in order, but only one year in that assignment he was assassinated by 60 Senators who stabbed him 23 times.
Caesar was accused of attempting to transfer power to the product of his relationship with Cleopatra, thereby forcing an Egyptian king on the Roman Republic. But when Caesar’s Will was read by Marc Anthony, it was Octavian the grandnephew of Caesar who was named in the will as Caesar’s successor. At the time of Caesar’s death, Octavian was only between 16 and 18 years old and lived outside Rome.
Most importantly, let’s quote Britannica – “Caesar’s death was partly due to his clemency and impatience, which in combination, were dangerous for his security. Caesar had not hesitated to commit atrocities against “barbarians’ when it suited him, but he was almost consistently magnanimous in his treatment to his defeated opponents”. The leaders of those who assassinated him were Marcus Brutus and Gaius Cassius whom he once granted clemency. Gaius Julius Caesar was a very successful military general, competent administrator and an accomplished orator, with undiluted Roman Blood running through his veins. His assassins did not factor how the Romans loved and cherished their king and this helped in no small measure in the elimination of the coup plotters.
The Ancient Roman Beliefs
R.E.A. Palmer summarized Roman religion thus – “An agrarian religion developed into an imperial religion which borrowed gods and cults from many peoples, and Romans seldom questioned the efficacy of a religion which had grown outward from a band on an Italian river to embrace the greater part of Europe, North Africa and the Near East”. Roman religion was a bond of obligation to members of the family and ethnic groups with shared sacrifices and gifts. However, Roman Religion depended on adoption of religions of other lands within the empire, but irrespective of their pagan devotion and inclination, all Romans worked together as Romans in wars and conquest and remain resolute in destroying all other groups, foreign ofcourse, not willing to toe their religious philosophy. Romans regard gods as having human-like shape but religion involved much beside man-like gods. The belief in a universal pagan god was never in existence.
The gods of the Romans came under five different classifications, namely, Natural Forces, Physical activities, single abstract conceptions, deities of a given place and lastly divinities of unknown origin. Gods of Natural Forces included Jupiter and Mars: Jupiter stood for sky and day god while Mars belonged to the forces of spring time, with March as its period of veneration. Gods of physical activities included Ceres which ruled the growth of crops and vegetation, and was also identified with the great grain goddess, Demeter, while Venus was responsible for coaxing and luring as well as the role of watching over vegetable gardens. At times Romans worshipped gods whose principal functions were in doubt, namely, Tellus, Dis (rich), Fides and Salus. Tellus signified the Earth, which receives slaughter of pregnant cows which were cremated with the sole purpose of fertilization. Dis belonged to the underworld and was likened to the Greek god, Pluto. While Tellus received annual sacrifice. Dis received sacrifice every century.
Deities with gender included Ops who was clothed grammatically with words like abundance, resource and provider. She received worship from the vestal virgins on 25th August, but received Civil Festivals, the bestowal of natural resources on 19 December. According to popular mind, she was regarded as the wife of Saturn whose great festival occurred on 17 December. Temples, precincts, chapels and altars were rampant in Rome. Romans also believed in mythical marriages amongst gods and their offspring. Roman gods participated in celibate lives before Greek ideas came on board. Romans believed that there are other forces inimical to their agricultural growth and adopted techniques to ward them off. The great plague involving men and cattle in 175 BC led credence to this event.
The Roman calendar rested on religious activities. February was given to cleansing while March marked the end and beginning of the year. December and January stood for festivities which included festival of lights, festivals of sacrifice and festival for games. As regards games, every manner of diversion was made available to the ruling elite and emperor. In fashioning Christianity, the birth of the messiah, the son of God was fused into 12 existing festivities and code-named Christmas. Notable amongst these 12 festivities are Feast of Lights, emperor’s day, feast of winter, winter solstice, festival of bells, life’s day and Hogwatch. Again, the practice of integrating newly embraced religious forms into existing religious system of the colonizing power as a way of harmonizing the conquered into the practices of the conqueror was in vogue. Another proof that what you are forced to swallow, with regard to Christianity, exists outside the walls of history.
Two types of priesthood existed in Rome. One type of priesthood tackled social life, which sometimes meant the will of the state, while the second type attended to family and local matters. Native and aristocratic ambitions often led to more frequent bitter political quarrels that ended up in favour of the state priesthood. This development catapulted state priests into the courts of Roman rulers and this enabled them to be in charge of instruments of legislation and jurisprudence. As formalism progressed, the monopolizing hold on the roman spirit waned. The Roman pontiff, as the Chief Priest of the state, began to serve in the capacity of religious spokesman, and presided over the meeting of the political council or college which was composed of the priest-king, the Flamen and the Vestal Virgins. The Pontiff also decided matters of the religious law and sacrifice. Finally, two routes emerged, - the purification on 15th February with a strip of goatskin and the second ritual which was performed throughout March in honour of Mars, apparently for growth and successes in wars.
Like mortals, dinner was offered to gods, and Jupiter received a dinner of the harvest of fruits every September. Romans gave their gods what they ate. The principal annual sacrifice included the pig, sheep, cow and sometimes goat and horse. They also offered grain and fruit as well as wine and milk. Incense and altar burnt sacrifice also took place. Sacral dinner was limited to magistrates and priests. Cleansing ceremonies were in diverse forms but the most important one involved the use of pig, sheep and bullock around the area to be purified and their subsequent slaughter for the good of the soil. The cleansing process became necessary because of the belief that there was a specific god, deity or group of same in charge of a particular area which needed to be relocated or appeased to accept assimilation into the Roman legion of gods. In extreme circumstances, a perpetual curse could be induced “by uprooting the boundary markers and sowing salt into its furrows and consigning the town and land to the gods of the underworld with prayers to Jupiter and Tellus”.
Essentially, Romans wanted to remain in good standing with nature and its forces and centered such quest on the needs of the local people, and probably without the slightest moral tune attached thereto. Most importantly too, Romans believed that certain deities watched over them as other deities looked after their neighbours. It is on this basis that romans felt it was necessary to deprive their enemies of their gods and all the means of worship. If you do not deprive your enemies their spiritual tools, you may not win a war through superior armament. The imperial cult of Rome not only believed that the dead emperors were gods but also worshipped same. They also regarded living emperors as divine personalities. Titus Flavius, the conqueror of Jews held this view and incorporated same in the making of the New Testament where the dead and the living are gods and sons of gods respectively.
Christianity (the Modern Roman Beliefs)
Arising from the ancient Roman beliefs are the concept of assimilation and adoption of religious beliefs of non-romans, oneness of romans irrespective of diverse beliefs, the destruction of all foreign groups unwilling to adhere to roman religious philosophy, the belief that God is in the likeness of man, the practice of celibacy, religious activities in honour of gods, the existence of state priesthood (the Pontiff), the use of salt to send opposing gods to the underworld, that dead emperors are gods and finally the existence of the son of God.
The above beliefs formed the template on which Christianity, the modern Roman religion stands. In other words, Christianity is a modified version of ancient Roman beliefs, namely to assimilate all conquered colonies into a bigger and more embracing religious umbrella. The formation, growth and maturity of Christianity within the walls of the Roman Empire took over 400 years, but as western empire took over the colonizing ambition of the Roman Empire, the growth of the faith grew in leaps and bounds, and possibly still on the growth curve. Christianity has existed for about 2000 years, and with a population of 2.3 billion. Christianity constitutes about 31% of the world’s population. However, while its population is on the rise worldwide, it is a fact that it is on the decline in Europe, its motherland. Christians are followers of Christ, the anointed one according to the Greeks; the messiah (the one chosen and anointed by God) according to the Jews; and lately, the son of God according to the Romans under the leadership and programme of Augustus Caesar, the first emperor of the Roman Empire.
The Hebrew (Jewish) religion took off from the court or mystery school of Ramesses the great. Moses, the adopted son of one of the daughters of Ramesses II of Egypt, wrote the Torah, the core holy text of Jews. Subsequently, other sections of the holy text were merely explanatory views of the works of Moses. However, it is necessary to remind you that Egyptian mystery schools evolved from paganism, thereby making Christianity the great grandson of paganism. We are therefore worshipping an embellished paganism under cloak of Christianity. If my Igbo brothers are under the illusion that there is a marked difference between paganism and Christianity, they are merely walking in the shadows of deceit.
The Jews got assimilated into Egyptian religion and culture through Joseph, the son of Jacob. He was sold to Ishe-elites who later sold him to the chief military officer of Pharaoh. As interpreter of dreams, Joseph was able to solve the riddle facing Pharoah, and as a reward for his successes in the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dreams, he was elevated to Pharaoh’s principal aid. After about 1800 years, another Jew in the name of Flavius Josephus was used to integrate Jews into the warm embrace of the Roman Empire, and from indications this marriage gave birth to the New Testament, tailored ofcourse not only to suit the grand plan of the Flavian Emperors but also provided the needed template for future emperors who orchestrated the creation of Christianity as the pivot of western civilization.
This discourse on Christianity will rest on biblical account, political history and the true spiritual tripod on which the faith stands. Like Rome, Jews “anchored their religion on Nature, including the sacrifice of infants to win the favour of gods and to stimulate the Earth, sometimes also for the emasculation of men and perpetual virginity of women or in the reverse for sacred prostitution”. They also believed in meditation, dreams and mighty acts of God, the restoration of paradise and finally an inspired leader (messiah). In contrast to Roman belief in the divinity of emperors, the Jewish belief is anchored on the rule of a sole God. However, there were three classes of Jews; the Sadducees, those willing to cooperate with the occupying power; the zealots, those not willing to collaborate with government in power; and the Pharisees, those who would neither collaborate nor rebel against the occupying power, but would rather wait for vindication from God.
It is commonly accepted that the Roman infrastructural facilities gave rise to increased economic and social activities, necessitating the desire to free citizens from commercial, military and political excesses not in keeping with the rigid traditional and pagan ways of life. Many texts lamented people’s desire to end any addiction to sin which created all forms of penances. To address this unfolding embarrassment, philosophers became guides to such souls. So, the idea of a monotheist belief arose from philosophical belief, a mere theological speculation or an academic exercise. The Jewish belief in one God, which originally had no forgiveness attached thereto became clothed with a forgiving savior and hence became more acceptable to God fearing gentiles, the conquered in the Roman Empire.
Judaism does not believe in salvation but Christianity does not only believe in it but also enshrines it as a key component of its faith. As regards resurrection, Jews view it as temporary in nature but assert that the soul inhibits eternity. They refer to resurrection as reincarnation which is the English word for Ogbanje in Igbo spiritual nomenclature. Again, the Christian bible is averse to this concept, except a passing reference to the second coming of Elisha. A further proof of the notion that Christianity is the product of the continuity of the assimilative principle of the Roman imperial court.
The Egyptians were concerned with their well-being in their afterlife. They also accepted that the “dead could be resurrected to eternal life through political assimilation of Osiris, the god of the dead who had himself died and risen”. Similarly, the Egyptian Pharaoh was regarded as both the god of the living and dead. Akhanaten promoted the worship of Aten, the sun god and occasionally had a birth of sun rays. King Constantine the great not only shared Akhanaten’s views but also followed his footsteps, and this emboldened him to change the holy day of the week from Jewish Sabbath to Sunday. He as well accepted sun god as the true Spiritual Authority of mankind.
False interpretation of King Constantine’s dream is to blame because Chi and the attached symbol were not solely Christian in nature. Chi is a Greek word for Christ which carries an implied understanding that they also came in contact with the power, as the ancient Igbos who were thousands of miles away, did. Chi is a spiritual word which means an intermediary or a link between the individual and the spiritual base of his cultural passage. The Jewish race is an example of the cultural passage because the Jews trace their descendants to a particular man and act within the borders of their spiritual inheritance. The cross is also inscribed in a sun-like disc which can be appropriated by anybody with adequate spiritual template. In otherwords, both the cross and Chi were appropriated by the founders of Christianity, the Greeks and Igbos independently. But King Constantine was wise enough and preferred to tie the dream to Sunday, the day the sun God is worshipped. If the cross is inscribed on the disc of the Sun, a rational mind would agree completely with the decision of king Constantine to harmonize the duo as the basis for the full free flow of power.
Having clothed Christianity with monotheism and sonship of God (savior), the issue of addiction to sin, multiplicity of rituals and backed by the fact that the worship of Caesar was repulsive to the colonized; an all-embracing faith in the name of Christianity became appealing. This enhanced the power of persuasion of clerics as they marshaled their points before gentiles. Many Roman Emperors fought this evolving masquerade bitterly resulting in the slaughter and persecution of early Christians until a compromise of dogma, religious practices and leadership were resolved. At the end, virtually all conflicting issues were resolved in favour of Roman principles, religious rites and doctrines. The pontiff, the head of Rome’s cultural gods was adopted to head the new faith. All religious festivities of the faith were in honour of Roman gods and their natural agricultural observances. Above all, the Roman emperor became the political leader of the faith. According to Barbar Martin, “western civilization confesses one God but lives in polytheism”.
The legalization and prescription of religious bodies rests on the government of the day. The edict of Milan in 313 AD which accepted Christianity as one of the religious groups within the empire was issued by King Constantine. The outcome of the deliberations of about 300 bishops in respect of the Creed of the faith in Nicaea in 325 AD was accepted and signed into law through a decree of the empire by King Constantine. Lastly in 384 AD, Theodosius the great signed another decree formalizing the status of Christianity as the sole religion of the empire. In effect, all necessary philosophical speculations, academic exercises and religious postulates must be adjudged lawful by the decree of the state. With these processes fully complied with, Christianity became a legal entity and turned back to persecute non-Christians in Europe and her colonies. They committed more heinous crimes against non-Christians, humanity and God than when they were being hunted.
There are diverse views on the existence of Jesus of the new world order. My objection to the existence of Jesus of the Christian bible is based on two factors, namely, that there were no eyewitness accounts, and secondly anybody whose birth is inconsistent with the norms and values of the prevailing culture cannot be a vehicle for the assignment of Avatar. Joseph, the son of Jacob was the link between Jews and Egyptians; Joseph, the carpenter became the link between Jews and God; and lastly, Josephus became the channel to embrace the Roman Empire. This sequence cannot be by accident. It came from a very logical mind, possibly the handiwork of the cabal of a very powerful empire. It is the old wine in various glass cups.
The earliest history of the church was between 100 and 240 AD. Polycap, the first eyewitness account of the execution of Christians, was nailed to the stake and burnt alive between 155 – 160 AD. Ironically and very recently too, the church applied the same tactics in the execution of the last grandmaster of the knights Templars. If the Christians suffered persecution for two hundred years, the church must have come into existence around 113 AD. On 27 June 2020, Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the head of Church of England said that the church should reconsider its portrayal of Jesus as a white man. If Jesus of the bible is real, Justin Welby would not have made the above statement because it is unethical to suggest the change of the colour of a real person.
In the writing of the gospels, four major groups were addressed, Mathew addressed the Jews, Luke addressed the Greeks, Mark addressed the Romans and lastly John addressed the philosophical minds in Alexandria, the seat of wisdom of the Hellenic age. From John came the logos (known over centuries under various names including Essence, Shabda, Agwu and Audiolife). This Logos (word) was used to form the third tripod of Trinity. Matthew was used not only to integrate Torah into Christianity but also paraphrased the writings of Moses both in the concept of one omnipotent God and the attached theological gambit. Mark was used to sway the opinions of the Romans, while Luke was used to reach the wider world, the Greeks (courtesy of Alexander the great). It is therefore rational to say with a degree of certainty that the sonship of God was included in honour of Augustus Caesar, the empire’s first son of God, to form the second tripod. That ‘one omnipotent’ God was ascribed to the first tripod. Unfortunately, all mortals including the Jews (worshippers of a Jealous god) are worshipping cultural gods.
Other religions teach that man can graduate to God while Christianity teaches that God entered into flesh and became man. The two views are complementary; one is likened to the centripetal pulsations while the other refers its counterpart, the centrifugal pulsations of the creative energy. To become human the spark of God must be indwelling in man, without which existence in the matter kingdom is impossible. However, if a man, with less pulsation of the divine essence, aspires to be great spiritually, he must tear-off those human and subsequent suble coverings inhibiting his growth through sacrifice, humility and purity of heart to elevate himself above the ordinary. Kings and rulers come into existence with higher pulsations of the Divine Essence and this makes them above the average. The God in us is subject to either progression or regression. Every man is who he was and shall be who is. Nobody is either blessed or cursed.
Jerusalem was sacked by Titus Flavius in 70 AD, not because of the activities of early Christians. The military operation was triggered because Jews and Jewism confronted the might of Rome. Titus military operation started in Galilee and moved through neighbouring cities to Jerusalem. Unfortunately, the writers of the Christian gospels followed, in chronological order, the operational sequence of the invading military might of Rome, although they turned the march into Jesus’ peaceful and triumphant entry into Jerusalem. But instead of the actual date, if such march ever occurred, they opted for a time frame before the death of Jesus in 33 AD. In similar vein if Jesus’ birth and death has no historical backing, it creates a big gap in the Christian literature. Similarly, if what happened in 70 AD was backdated to earlier than 70 AD, it creates more uncertainty in the whole story. Lastly, if what happened in the council of Nicaea in 325 AD was found recorded in gospels which were claimed to have been in existence before 70 AD, it leaves one with only one conclusion which is that the gospels were manufactured by the deep state of the Roman Empire.
The Spiritual Base of Christianity
All quests such as military, political and economic powers are dependent on tangible and real spiritual bases. The same applies to leadership. Similarly, no empire can come into existence and be sustained through time without adequate spiritual base. The Roman Empire is no exception. For Christianity to thrive for this period of time, it must have been standing on solid spiritual template. The Christian church stands on three spiritual props, namely, the senior Jesus, the carrier of Agwu Ndi-Mmili; the Junior Jesus who existed as Januarius, the Bishop of Benevento in Italy and lastly Melchizedek who received war loot from Abraham as tithe.
According to the Kongis, who occupy the highest spiritual plane in any planet they elect to exist, the senior Jesus, the carrier of Agwu Ndi-nmili lived in Judea in 100 AD. He started his mission in River Jordan and concluded it on the shores of the sea of Tiberias. As the carrier of Agwu Ndi-nmili, he was the embodiment of water, the essential item in baptism and confirmation in Christianity. In addition to water, the Roman Empire incorporated salt, the key item in sending hostile gods to the underworld. In healing and cleaning tools of the faith two items are in use, water and salt. Salt came from Roman pagan worship while Agwu Ndi-nmili produced the senior Jesus.
Januarius, the Junior Jesus was executed by a roman Governor. Nobody could fix his place of birth but Naples and Benevento are highly favoured. For clarity, let’s quote from the Red Bible by Chief Nkwo Nnabuchi, and Messrs Herbert Hurston S.J. and Donald Attwater in Butter’s lives of the saints.
“The Governor of Campania in about 300 AD executed St. Januarius. He carried out this act on the instruction of Diocletian the Roman Emperor between 284 and 305 AD. Diocletian organized the last great persecution of the Christians which hit its highest causalities in 303 AD. St. Januarius and his two lieutenants, Festus, the Bishop’s deacon and Desiderius, a lector in his church were loaded with iron and forced to walk before the governor’s chariot to Pozzuoli. The spectacle was very humiliating and disgraceful. The offence of St. Januarius was that he paid a visit to his friends who were detained by Roman Authorities. On hearing that Sossus, the deacon of Misero, Proculus the deacon of Pozzuoli and two others, Euticus and Acutius had been arrested by the persecutors, St. Januarius determined to pay them a visit to comfort and encourage them. His visit was noticed and the governor was alerted”.
“Sossus by his wisdom and sanctity had earned the friendship of St. Januarius, and upon the news that this servant of God and several others were fallen into the hands of the persecutors, the bishop determined to make them a visit to comfort and encourage them. He did not escape the notice of keepers, who gave information that someone from Benevento had visited the Christian prisoners. The governor gave orders that Januarius, whom he found to be the person, should be arrested and brought before him at Nola, which was accordingly done. Festus, the bishop’s deacon and Desiderius, a lector of the church were also taken and had a share in the interrogations and torments, which the good bishop underwent at Nola.
Sometime after the governor went to Pozzuoli, and these three confessors, loaded with irons, were made to walk before the governor to that town, where they were thrown into the same prison where the four martyrs already mentioned were detained. They had been condemned to be torn in pieces by wild beasts, and were then lying in expectation of the execution of their sentence. The day after the arrival of St. Januarius and his two companions all these champions of Christ were exposed to the beasts, in the Amphi-theatre, but none of the animals could be provoked to touch them. They were amazed and imputed the failure of their persecution to magic, and the martyrs were condemned to be beheaded. The sentence was executed near Pozzuoli and the martyrs were buried near the town.
St Januarius was the bishop of Benevento, and died about 25 years before the council of Nicaea. It is therefore likely that his colleagues who sat and decided the course of Christianity took cognizance of his persecution and the miraculous feat of his blood which was collected at the scene of his execution. Before these eminent bishops arrived at the creed and attendant alterations to the teachings of Jesus, they were told that these decisions were unscriptural. Nevertheless, these objections were overruled. Based on the above, I am compelled to arrive at the following conclusions:
“(1) That the execution of Januarius and his two aides through beheading was changed to the crucifixion of Jesus and the two thieves and incorporated into the holy text of Christians. In the same vein, the technique used in the execution of the first Martyr of the faith, St Polycap between 155 – 160 AD was adopted for the death of Jesus Christ.”
“(2) That the execution of Januarius in Pozzuoli, Italy on the orders of the Roman Governor of Campania was later found expressed in Judea. This validates the statement that Jesus was executed on the orders of a Roman Governor”.
“(3) That the mysterious and miraculous works of Januarius’ blood was changed to holy blood capable of washing away believer’s sins”.
“(4) That Januarius was loaded with iron and forced to walk along the street of Pozzuoli, Italy, in disgrace was changed to Judea and written as “they platted a crown of thorns upon his (Jesus’s) head and mocked him (Jesus) as they led him (Jesus) to Golgotha.”
“(5) The persecution of Januarius in 300 AD within the doorstep of Rome endorses Tacitus statement concerning the ‘pernicious superstition which was widespread, even-reaching as far as Rome’ but also confirms that Josephus views dated 33AD was a later forgery by Christianity to cover adverse account of the original works”.
Melchizedek, the king of Salem (the King of Righteousness) was the channel El-Shaddai used to externalize those spiritual assurances to Abram into physical reality. According to the bible, Melchizedek initiated Abram into the mysteries of Nature with bread and wine, and with the following invocative words – “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Maker of Heaven and Earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hands”. Abram was victorious over Chedorlaomer and gave a tenth of the spoils of war to Melchizedek. Melchizedek “was fatherless without genealogy, and having neither a beginning nor an end of life.” He was and probably still an immortal being (savior), clothed of course with unlimited divine authority. Abram introduced tithes and burnt offerings which were not in existence in his root and might have gotten same through his dibia, Melchizedek.
It is a surprise that the opening page of the New Testament, limits Jesus’ genealogy to Abram, the father of three religious’ groups – Judaism, Christianity and Islamism. If Melchizedek blessed Abram, it carries an implied view that all those religions are carriers of that blessing, if the making of priesthood in Christianity revolves around the spiritual authority of Melchizedek, the King of Righteousness then the use of bread and wine cannot relate to the blood and body of Christ which was shed in 33 AD, 2217 years after Melchizedek had lived on the face of the earth and used it to induct Abram into Nature’s mysteries. In other words, the use of wine and bread predates the birth and death of Jesus of Christianity. Similarly, the blood and body of St Januarius, the Junior Jesus, became the tools which are used in washing away sins of the Flock. Holy Communion is as well dependent on the blood and body of St. Januarius or as a means of power transfer in memory of the event between Abram and Melchizedek.
My brothers of Igbo extraction believe that Christianity is an extension of Jewism but this statement states otherwise. This article is firm in stating that Christianity’s first step on its evolutionary journey began in the priestly and royal courts of Ramesses II of Egypt and walked through the rituals and practices of the priests and kings of Midan as well as the priests of amalgama of cults, sects and royal courts in the kingdom of Alexander the great and landed on the palms of the pontiff of the collective tribal gods of Rome where it collapsed in the imperial courts of Julius Caesar and his adopted son, Augustus Caesar. It was rebranded and clothed with a white banner on which is written “God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit”.
If this proposition is true, as it has proven to be, Christianity, like any other religion is the handiwork of imperial rulers, assisted ofcourse by priests, philosophers and great mystical minds. However, we cannot ignore the fact that most imperial kings were priests also, and this dates back to Egypt whose pharaohs were gods of the living and gods of the dead. Christ, as created by Titus Flavius, became a replacement of the old order. This doctrine was adopted by Constantine the great in decrees of 313 and 325 AD but received the instrument as the sole religion of the empire in 484 AD under the seal of Theodosius the great. Since then, Christianity has remained the dominant religion of the world.
In line with my earlier narrative, three props of Christianity, in spiritual terms only, came from three different parts of the world, the present-day Iran, Judea and Rome. Melchizedek came from Iran; Jesus, the carrier of Awgu Ndinmili came from Judea; Jesus (St Januarius) who was executed by a Roman governor came from Rome. In the same light, the empires which moulded this great masquerade were Egyptian and Roman empires but with a third leg, although weak but indispensable. This third leg is the Greek empire, courtesy of Alexander the great whose vast empire blended the mysteries of the East and West on whose template the Roman empire stood. The New Testament is a blend of the teachings of the East and West. The concept of “love your neighbour as yourself” is certainly of the East.
Lastly, Ditu, the Chief Spiritual World Power remains in power until 5th October 2285 AD, and until then all spiritual templates both in the worlds of the living and dead come under his jurisdiction. Accordingly, no person no matter how powerful and no religious group no matter how ancient can stand on His path. Similarly, any spiritual act inconsistent with His pursuits, ambitions and interests is a nullity. However, you are at liberty to exercise the gift of Freewill, but must be prepared to face its consequences.
