Bruce MacDonald and the Black Arts
This was a very interesting interview with Bruce MacDonald who is living somewhere in the Jungles of South America. His background is from a very devout Catholic family and he ended up rejecting the ritualistic traditions and dogma to seek a more transcendental way by researching various philosophies practicing meditation etc.
His take on black magic is interesting and his information that Jimmy Saville was a Jew is shocking. Saville was a degenerate and a “wizard” with connections to the monarchy. See the videos on the page Pedos, murderers and Psycho’s.
This is what I wrote to Bruce:
Hello, I am the guy that you saw debating Doovid. I am not an evangelical by the way even though Doovid tried to classify me that way because I believe in Scriptural interpretation. I think labels are unhelpful. My paternal grandparents and many relatives were RC and I spent time in a very RC region of Holland (Maastricht). My observations is that RC is very into ritual and tradition (unlike other Christian streams) but then the RC church was subverted by Judaists early on. I have three commentaries and numerous articles on my website. I have done stylometric analysis on Parts Of Speech of the Hebrew using PCA and LDA on function words. As you noted I am busy with Gematria which is a new area for me but already bearing fruit. You mentioned African Gematria palimyome (?) from the Congo. I can find no information on this. African slaves (from Central Africa Congo) combined the bible with hoodo in a syncretic adaptation to their superstition. In this view God is a conjurer as is Moses. In the twentieth century a spell book based on Kaballah called The Sixth and Seventh books of Moses (you mentioned the "sixth book of Moses" but there are only five according to tradition) was sold to African Americans containing numerous signs, seals, and passages in Hebrew related to the prophet Moses' ability to work wonders. Obviously the book was a fraud. I differ in my opinion about Moses and the temple etc. The characters and events are based on historical events. Moses withstood the "magicians" of Egypt obviously worshipers of Thoth forerunner to Hermeticism. This is the "black magic" Kabbalah that you mentioned. The Jews creation of money (debt) ex-nihlo and their casting of spells (propaganda) is indeed manipulation of consciousness and very dark. The revelation of Yhvh was meant to counter that. The name is linked to existence itself and to manifestation. The Genesis story counters the idea that man can become God through knowledge (Illumination or gnosis/Hermetic) and the Genesis story also counters the idea of sacrifice in the sense that man must appease God by literally sacrificing their children. These two measures (1) knowledge (2) sacrifice were coping mechanisms of humanity because they realized that they were vulnerable (naked and ashamed) in a world that brought sudden catastrophes. The history of Israel is schematized, and their calendar only goes back some 6,000 years which takes us to the Time of Taurus (bull=golden calf) followed by Aires (ram caught in a thicket) followed by Pieces (Christianity 153 mega fish) followed by the water pourer Aquarius (Num 24:7). We are at the end of the Great Year Precession cycle and things are about to get crazy.
The Man Moses
A few things that I need to mention. The northern tribes of Israel (called Ephraim collectively) were half Egyptian. Joseph was married into the Egyptian priestly aristocracy and it was through him that the aristocracy centralized their power base during the famine caused by natural disaster as they exchanged their land for food (sound familiar, at least he didn’t make them eat bugs). That said, the nation and the people survived because of his actions. Moses name is similar to the Egyptian “Meses” as in Rameses (=the son of Ra). The daughter of Pharaoh called him MY SON because she found him. Often Moses is mistakenly thought to mean “drawn out” because she drew him out the water.:
” And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water” (Exodus 2:10).
Of course, this finds theological parallels in God drawing the nation through the waters of the red sea (baptism) and calling them “my son” (Hos 11:1) and Jesus being baptized (Mark 1:11) and the midrash in Matthew 2:15.
The Legend of Sargon of Akkad (c. 2300 BE) is similar to the origin story of Moses, namely found in a basket in the river (Euphrates?). This was a mechanism so that Sargon could distance himself from the kings of the past (who claimed divine right) and aligned himself with the common people of the region rather than the ruling elite. Moses on the other hand was a commoner elevated to royalty by adoption. The following translation of the Legend comes from J. B. Pritchard’s The Ancient Near East, Volume I, pages 85-86:
Sargon, the mighty king, king of Agade, am I. My mother was a changeling, my father I knew not. The brother(s) of my father loved the hills. My city is Azupiranu, which is situated on the banks of the Euphrates. My changeling mother conceived me, in secret she bore me. She set me in a basket of rushes, with bitumen she sealed My lid. She cast me into the river which rose not (over) me, The river bore me up and carried me to Akki, the drawer of water. Akki, the drawer of water lifted me out as he dipped his e[w]er. Akki, the drawer of water, [took me] as his son (and) reared me. Akki, the drawer of water, appointed me as his gardener, While I was a gardener, Ishtar granted me (her) love, And for four and [ ... ] years I exercised kingship, The black-headed [people] I ruled, I gov[erned]; Mighty [moun]tains with chip-axes of bronze I con- quered, The upper ranges I scaled, The lower ranges I [trav]ersed, The sea [lan]ds three times I circled. Dilmun my [hand] cap[tured], [To] the great Der I [went up], I [...], [...] I altered and [...]. Whatever king may come up after me, [...] Let him r[ule, let him govern] the black-headed [peo]ple; [Let him conquer] mighty [mountains] with chip-axe[s of bronze], [Let] him scale the upper ranges, [Let him traverse the lower ranges], Let him circle the sea [lan]ds three times! [Dilmun let his hand capture], Let him go up [to] the great Der and [...]! [...] from my city, Aga[de ... ] [...] ... [...].
I already hear the cries of Jewish plagiarism but if this was a common origin motif circulating at the time it may well have given Moses’ mother the idea to put her son in a basket. Pharaoh’s daughter would have regarded him as a gift from the Nile god Hapi. It was no accident that he was left where the princess bathed and where his sister could guard him.
Moses’s history is supposedly around 1500 BC but this is still controversial as the dates range from the “traditional” 18th dynasty date (ca. 1450 BC) and the current “consensus” 19th dynasty date (ca. 1250 BC), but touching also on other Exodus dates advocated from ca. 2100 BC through ca. 650 BC (See Exodus Dates and Theories).
The Taurus (bull) age range extends to 2150 BC (ca. 4300-2150 BC) would coincide with a very early date and Thera the eruption (c.1600 BC) with a later date and Exodus phenomenon. The bronze age collapse of many ancient civilizations (12th century BC, between c. 1200 and 1150) is still largely unexplained.
Circumcision was originally Egyptian and adopted by the Hebrews as a sign of the covenant which is probably why the Hebrew word for covenant means “cut” because a covenant (agreement) is cut. The member is cut as a sign that the covenant (agreement) is not just with the covenant maker but with his seed (offspring). As to the neurological effects I cannot say but ritual male circumcision is known to have been practiced by South Sea Islanders, Australian Aborigines, Sumatrans,Incas, Aztecs, Mayans as well as the Ancient Egyptians. Today it is still practiced by Jews, Muslims and many tribes in East and Southern Africa.
In an enigmatic fragment of text (that warns of the death of Pharaoh’s firstborn) Moses himself was nearly killed because he neglected to circumcise his sons (Exod 4:22-26) which may be a reflection of later history (Josh 5:2-9). Under the new covenant circumcision is not necessary because the promised seed has arrived and the covenant is reformulated in him.
As to the temple Bruce readily admits (along with just about everyone) that the temple of Herod existed as it is acknowledged by other Roman historians including Josephus. Herod did not actually build a new temple he renovated the existing temple that had been rebuilt after the exile (Zerubbabel’s temple) but the remodeling and reconstruction was that extensive that it was almost a complete rebuild (John 2:20).
The fact is that Hezekiah reformed the cult and cleansed Solomon’s temple (the first temple). There is ample evidence of Hezekiah (a direct Davidic descendant) existing and reforming the cult and cleansing Solomon’s temple. Not just from Scripture but archeological evidence and evidence from the Assyrian records (Taylor Prism). Hezekiah (c 700 BC) did not build the temple he reformed it. So it was already standing and was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC.
So the charge that no temple existed in the time of Solomon is not true. Solomon gained his wealth from the copper trade mined by the Edomites (who had been conquered by his father David) in the Negev wilderness in the Timna valley near Eilat. There was a huge smelting complex and Solomon supplied all the food water etc and acted as the middleman. The ancient world craved copper (together with 12% Phoenician tin to make bronze). Solomon was buddies with Hiram I the Phoenician king of Tyre who supplied the workforce and some of the materials for building the temple and so between them they corned the global metals market (kerching). The Egyptians had copper mines in the Sinai. Solomon married an Egyptian princess because the marriage covenant was a way of consolidating power and gaining international influence. Hence he had a 1,000 wives (poor bloke the nagging lolz) and they turned his heart away from God. All his wisdom and wealth did not save him even though his revenue was 666 talents of gold annually. He apostatized but to say he consulted 72 demons to help build the temple is Kabbalah and masonic nonsense. Yes, we know the stories are sacred history and make theological points but they are based on truth.
Moreover, the Dome the Rock is the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite one of the original inhabitants of Jerusalem before it was conquered by David. It is a stone floor for threshing the harvest and separating the wheat from the chaff. It was purchased legally by David for building an altar (2 Sam 24:21) and Ritmejier has found the the level carving where the Ark stood. It is the place where according to tradition Abraham went up to sacrifice Issac (Gen 22:2). It is the place where the plague caused by the Numbering (see my article) in (2 Sam 24:1) was halted (cf. numbering of the transgressors Isa 53:12). It was co-opted by the Muslims in recognition of its holiness as the place of Mohamed’s night journey. Therefore, Jerusalem (city of peace) is called the foundation stone and a rock of offense and a stumbling block (Isa 8:14), the irony is exquisite for the same epithet (cf. 1 Pet 2:8) is applied to Christ who is the Prince of Peace King of Salem. Whoever meddles with the stone that is Christ will be crushed (Matt 21:42-46 Jesus is alluding to the Hezekiah Psalm 118:22-24 note the day=Passover day deliverance from Assyria in Hezekiah’s time).
The original “foundation stone” was the altar-rock of Zion — which was probably the site where Abraham prepared to offer Isaac (Gen. 22: cp. v. 9 there with v. 27 here), and which was probably also the threshing-floor of Araunah the Jebusite on mount Moriah (2 Sam. 24:18-25). The wicked Ahaz, infected with a zest for the worship of foreign gods, re-moved the altar of burnt-offering from its prominent place atop this foundation stone, and “hid” it away in a corner of the Temple enclosure (2 Kings 16:14). Yet whilst the true altar might be set aside, there was no way to shift the massive outcropping of rock on which it had stood (it is still there today, in the center of the Dome of the Rock). Thus, in Ahaz’s day it remained — quite literally — a “stone of stumbling” (Isa. 8:14,15) for priests walking across the temple court, and a “rock of offence” in a spiritual sense. It was only when Hezekiah came into full control of the kingdom that he could remedy this sacrilege, and restore the Temple worship to its rightful setting. And so the “stone” rejected by the new “builders” of Judah became, once again, a precious stone and a sure foundation for the true worship of the Lord (Isa. 28:16). It is easy, then, to see how this foundation stone symbolized Hezekiah himself (and his faith in the Lord), upon which all true worship in Judah depended. While sick unto death, he had been “set aside” by other would-be “builders” and rulers, but when miraculously healed he would stand forth again as the chief prince of his people. (See further on H.A. Whittaker, Bible Studies, pp. 111-116.)
This is recent video is great but argues that the threshing floor is separate from the Dome of the Rock (I don’t think so):
