The other day I was listening to Pandora and heard this song by Portishead, and even though I’d probably heard it dozens of times before, suddenly the words jumped out at me. “Wait, isn’t this a line straight out of the Bible somewhere..?”
“Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved, the blackness, of darkness, forever….”
Sure enough, it’s right out of the book of Jude, (verse 13), in the same chapter where the book of Enoch is quoted, as the wicked men who pervert the Gospel of Jesus are likened to the fallen angels who sinned before the Flood and incurred the fearsome judgment of being cast into the Abyss.
I suppose the reason such words suddenly stuck out to me has much to do with all the pondering I’ve been doing lately around all this “flat earth stuff”. Even though I’m fairly sure that the majority of my already minuscule readership is probably quite put off be treating such a topic with any degree of seriousness, I suppose I just don’t really care at this point, and to be honest it’s somewhat freeing. In the end however I think I’m really much less interested in debating specific aspects of various flat-earth models or the vast lies of institutions like NASA, and more interested in exploring the ways in which suspending our long-held assumptions about what we “know” about the universe might actually help unveil certain plain yet profound truths about the ways in the physical and spiritual dimensions are intertwined.
One of the fascinating tidbits which has arisen through the consideration of flat earth ideas in relation to ancient Biblical and pagan cosmologies, is the question of what exactly the planets ARE, if indeed the “heavens” are not actually “outer space” as we have been taught our whole lives that they exist, but instead something far nearer and more pressing upon us, and yet at the same time much more mysterious and mystical, more mind-bendingly spiritual in their supra-dimensional aspects.
We all know how much the ancients were enthralled by the planets, to the point of worshipping them and naming the days of the week after them, but of course, we also must admit that they weren’t imagining spheroids orbiting around a solar system, but rather saw them as “wandering stars” who didn’t follow the paths of the other constellations.
How absolutely fascinating that this is precisely what the Bible seems to describe them as being…
The angels who fell to earth and “kept not their first estate”, were those who taught mankind warfare and witchcraft, seduction and civil engineering, the building blocks of “civilization” (or the hierarchical elements necessary for empire and oppression, depending on how you look at it…)
But these earth-bound luminaries are those credited with bringing that first Promethean spark to humanity, the golden gods and plumed serpents for whom the first wave of ante-deluvian cities and temples and monoliths were all erected for. Should it come as any big surprise that all the ancient pagan temples and mystery schools are obsessed with celestial alignments and zodiacs and astronomical affiliations?
The ancient astronaut folks are of course convinced that this is because our panspermiating, extra-terrestrial space fore-fathers came to this planet in ages past in their Corrillian starships and helped us evolve out of ape-hood. Their fixation with the stars is interpreted almost precisely the way the archeologists in the film Prometheus present it, as some kind postcard from our ancient alien homeworld.
But according to the Bible, these “gods” were not alien saviors or benevolent gift-givers, but rebellious angels who abandoned their posts in God’s order of Creation. And if this is so, then would it not perhaps make a great deal of sense to see why a deception might be foisted upon the world, as to reality of the nature of the heavenlies, to the connection between the angelic and the skies above which we see with our own eyes…?
Would it not fit quite seamlessly to conceive of a fictionalized Copernican cosmology to serve as the foundation for the fictionalized Darwinian paradigm?
Like chapters in a fairy tale book they build on each other, and create an encapsulating worldview which is quite apart from that of Genesis, and after enough time has passed, (and this is the facet which I find intriguing), it sets the stage for another introduction of these same photo-morphic beings within a new “modern scientific” context. In short, in order to pose as “alien creatures from outer space”, first you’d have to establish the concept of what “outer space” even IS in the minds of the public.
I dunno…. Perhaps I really have just lost my marbles completely at this point and should feel free to continue on in my own delusion without feeling like I need to write about it here. I will say that my perspective, on so many things, has felt quite different of late. I’ve spent far less time fretting over news headlines or NWO shenanigans the past few weeks than I have searching the scriptures with a new found fervor, and staring up at the day and night sky, just marveling at it all… It’s odd. Almost as though it feels like I’m actually starting to come out on the other side of some long, dark tunnel, as if the “rabbit hole” really does have an exit far on the other side. But of course, it wouldn’t be fitting if it didn’t turn out to place you squarely back where everything began, in that delicious sort of irony which reminds you just how much a sense of humor God really must have. Somehow, the machinations of the Enemy seem more laughable to me now than ever before, the more you realize how rebellion against God is the seed of all self-delusion, we weave and accept the stories about everything which best suit our predetermined sources of sovereignty. This is how it has always been. Even the angels, who watched the Earth and heavens being formed by the Hand of God Himself, who encircled the throne and worshiped Him in His full glory, still some fell, conspired even, and then set about spinning tales and twisted accounts of their descent. That’s all I see the ancient pagan mythologies and “mysteries” and pantheons as adding up to in the end, as attempts by the “wandering stars” to whitewash their damnable errors and confuse humanity into worshiping them, instead of the One who made us all….
