The 7 Mysteries of Mithras Revealed At Last!!

After his ascension into Heaven to sit at the right hand of JEHOVAH, the first order of business for the Messiah was to kick Satan and his fallen angels right out of heaven:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him (Revelation 12: 7-9).

The expulsion of Satan meant the cleansing of heaven from his defiling footprints, but it was very, very bad news for planet earth:

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time (Revelation 12:12).

About 6 months into the reign of Emperor Caligula, he experienced a strange metamorphosis, and from then on he claimed to be Zeus incarnate in the flesh.

After Satan's expulsion from heaven, the battleground shifted to planet earth.

Caligula (Lat. Gaius Julius Caesar) became totally Satan possessed and demanded that everybody worship him as Zeus.

Caesar means HAIRY in Latin!!

Caligula called himself Zeus and demanded divine worship from everyone in the Empire. He was determined to put his statues in the great Temple in Jerusalem:

Now Caius Caesar did so grossly abuse the fortune he had arrived at, as to take himself to be a god, and to desire to be so called also, and to cut off those of the greatest nobility out of his country. He also extended his impiety as far as the Jews. Accordingly he sent Petronius with an army to Jerusalem to place his statues in the temple, and commanded him that, in case the Jews would not admit of them, he should slay those that opposed it, and carry all the rest into captivity. (Josephus, Wars of the Jews, Book II, 10,1).

Only the timely assassination of the mad Caligula prevented him from forcing everyone in the Empire to worship him as Zeus incarnate.

In 41 AD, his infamous career was cut short by assassins . . . and that was the end of the first line of Satan possessed Pontiffs.

Satan's top priority was to annex Britannia to the Roman Empire!!

Before the Roman invasion of Britannia, that country was a House of Horrors, run by deadly human flesh eating Druid priests. Nothing is known of the history of the country prior to the arrival of the Romans. The Druids did have contact with the Greeks because the name Esus and Zeus are very similar. Helena was also a popular name prior to the arrival of the Romans.

The Roman standing army called the Praetorian Guard made Claudius Emperor. From that time onward ALL the Roman Emperors were chosen by the army. A standing army has always been the main instrument that tyrants use to oppress the people.

He was their complete puppet and was ordered to invade Britannia in 43 AD.

A temple to the "divine" Claudius was elected in Camulodunum (Colchester).

The ruthless Roman legions raped Britannia when they invaded in 43 AD. Payback came in 313 when British born Emperor Constantine divided the Empire.

Around 55 AD, the Apostle Paul and a small group of Christians arrived in Britannia. One benefit of the Roman invasion was the suppression of the Druids, which allowed the Christians to establish a small beachhead on the island.

Satan established the Mysteries of Mithras after his expulsion from heaven!!

Mitra was originally the sun god of the Persians. Mitra is a Persian word and another name for Nimrod, Dagon, and thus Satan himself. The Latins added an S, and thus Mitras; English added an H, and thus Mithras.

In the Book of Daniel, Mitra is called the Prince of Persia:

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.(Daniel 10:13).

The person that the Prince of Persia withstood for 21 days was none other than JEHOVAH himself. This shows how powerful Satan was before the Resurrection of Christ.

Mitra is another name for Nimrod, Dagon, and thus Satan himself.

The Persians and the Romans were deadly enemies, but Mitra was adopted as the patron and protector of the Roman army. Mithras was born from a ROCK on December 25.

Moses foresaw this false ROCK, 1500 years before the birth of the true Messiah:

For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges (Deuteronomy 32:31).

The birth of Mithras at the winter solstice was the most important day of the year for the pagans.

Mithras was the most secretive and deadly pagan cult in the Roman Empire.

The Mysteries of Mithras required 7 steps to prepare the initiate for the Mithraic "heaven."

Mithraism is a diabolical perversion of the great doctrine of redemption through the Messiah found in Genesis Chapter 3:

And I (JEHOVAH) will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; HE shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15).

In their perverted iconography, the BULL symbolizes the Messiah . . . who is slain by Mithras . . . while a dog and snake drinks his blood:

In the Roman mystery cult of Mithras, seven degrees of initiation enabled the neophyte to proceed through the seven celestial bodies, allowing a reversal of the descent of the human soul into the world at birth. To achieve this, the initiate ascended the seven heavens and walked through the Milky Way, returning to the origin of the Soul. The initiates worked with the four elements and seven planetary energies, and the initiations involved the undergoing of purification and "ordeals." The seven sets of symbols on the floor mosaic in the Mithraeum of Felicissimus, in Ostia, Italy, show the emblems for each of the seven grades. (Nabarz, The Mysteries of Mithras, p.30).

Their dark rites were performed in caves, and the initiates were sworn to secrecy. Nothing was put in writing, as their diabolical doctrines were conveyed by means of signs and symbols only.

The 7 steps corresponding to the Latin Church's 7 sacraments were:

Corax (Raven), Nymphus (Bride), Miles (Soldier), Leo (Lion), Perses, (Persian), Heliodromus (Sun-messenger), Pater (Father).

The cult of Mithras was exclusively MALE but the second degree was called Nymphus (Bride)!!

Mithraic baptism symbolized the candidate's death and rebirth:

The first degree was that of Corax (Raven), under the rule of Mercury. This stage symbolized the death of the neophyte. (In ancient Persia, it was the custom to place the bodies of the dead on funeral towers, to be eaten by ravens). At this first stage the neophyte would die and be reborn into a spiritual path. A mantra was given to him to repeat, and his sins were washed away by baptism in water. (Nabarz, The Mysteries of Mithras, p.30).

The Church of Rome produces "Christians" by exactly the same method:
Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word." (Catechism of the "Catholic" Church, 1997, Part Two, Article 1).

Central to the worship of the secret cult was a communion meal, which was a parody of the Christian Eucharist or Lord's Supper.

Small round cakes with crosses were consumed during the Mithraic communion.

Like the early Christians, they celebrated their communion in the EVENING as that was the time of the LAST SUPPER!!

Saint Paul warned the Christians against this deadly counterfeit and he called their communion the table of devils:

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils (I Corinthians 10:21).

Same-sex marriage originated with this deadly cult as that was the 2nd grade of initiation.

Emperor Nero was initiated into the 7 Mysteries of Mithras!!

The diabolical monster Nero was the first Emperor or Pontiff to be initiated into the Mysteries of Mithras. King Tiridates I of Armenia visited Rome in 65 AD and initiated Nero into the depths of Satan:

During the coronation ceremony (referred to by Dio Cassius, ixiii, 1-7; Suetonius, Nero, 13, 30; Pliny, Nat. Hist., xxx, i, 6), Tiridates turned to Nero with these words: "I am the ruler, descendant of Arsakos, of the kings Vologeses and Pakoros, his brother, but I am your slave and I came to you, my Lord, to worship you, as it were Mithras; and I will be such as you grant me to be, because you are to me the Moira and the Tyche"). Upon this Tiridates took off his coronet and placed it on the Emperor's head. Cumont associated this investiture with the Mithras cult into which Tiridates wanted to initiate Nero. Once more Pliny provides the evidence for this: "he had initiated him in a magic repast" (magicisque cenis initiaverat)–a repast which must refer to the Mithraic 'eucharist.' If this is so, we have an indication that Nero was the first Roman Emperor to come into contact with the cult of Mithras. (Vermaseren, Mithras, the Secret God, p.24).

Here are the 7 steps that Nero took to reach the summit of the top secret Mithras cult.

When the pagan Roman Empire was replaced by the Papal Roman Empire in 313, Mithraism seemed to disappear completely. In reality, the Mithraic cross became the "Christian" cross; Mithraic temples became "Christian" churches, the 7 Mysteries of Mithras became the 7 sacraments, the Mithraic communion became the mass, and the birthday of Mithras became the birthday of baby JESUS:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth (Revelation 17:5).

The Papal Pontiffs replaced the pagan Pontiffs as head of the Mysteries of Mithras. They have a saying at Rome "Semper idem" (always the same).

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Revelation 18:4).

The Book of Revelation–the last book in the Bible–was written specifically to combat and expose the deadly Mithraic cult. The number 7 dominates the book as it appears 48 times:

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth (Revelation 17:9).
