The Tree of Judgement?

by Anny Vos on January 24, 2015

mystical tree, good and evilOne of the themes in the Bible that has always fascinated mankind is that of the Garden of Eden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, with the serpent lying on one of its branches.

During the period of October 2013 – January 2014, I wrote a series of articles for SOS, mostly about the esoteric interpretation of Bible texts, based on Hebrew numerology. In at least five of these articles this theme of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the serpent was examined, each following article building on the findings of the previous ones.

The Flood: Biblical vs. Mesopotamian Narratives

by Robert Engelbach on January 16, 2015

Biblical FloodWe are all familiar with the story of The Flood in the Hebrew Bible. But this is not the first account of a catastrophic near-extinction event in recorded human history. The Mesopotamians who lived centuries before the book of Genesis was written had their very own captivating flood story similar to Genesis in many ways, but told in the style and traditions of their own rich and unique culture.

In the picture to the left, we see the Sol in Aries, Light of the World in the Lamb, the latter standing at the Heart of the Sevenfold Covenant that is “the bow in the heavens” (Post-Flood, God’s Promise to Noah).

Recently I had a conversation with a friend about the history of New Testament. Everyone here on SOS knows and understands the symbolic importance of it, but there are many differences of opinion on whether it is literal history or not. It’s always been important to me to allow readers to have open discussions and […]

Jacob, Leah, Higher Consciousness, DMT, and the Pineal Gland

January 1, 2015
Thumbnail image for Jacob, Leah, Higher Consciousness, DMT, and the Pineal Gland

A few years back I wrote a post about Jacob meeting God at Peniel. Jacob called the place of meeting Peniel because the Hebrew term means “face of God.” In that post we also discussed that Peniel, although a different spelling, can be associated with the pineal gland in the center of the brain. Jacob […]

While mailing holiday packages at the US post office this season, I noticed a display of greeting cards for sale. One card in particular caught my eye. On the cover it read: “Sometimes I wonder why I put up with you.” On the inside of the card it read: “Oh yeah, now I remember, you […]

Allow me to share in a little holiday fun with an amusing account of a dream. Never mind the poking and teasing in it. No disrespect is meant to the serious posts on signs and numerology. I just want to make sure that is absolutely clear. We just need to laugh at ourselves sometimes. So […]

Have you ever wondered what your current level of conscious development is? What if you had some information to help you gauge it? The book, The Science of Spirituality (Lee Bladon), has such a section. Much of Bladon’s information is based on the study of religious texts and its esoteric interpretation, as well as the […]

“No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: […]

I just wanted to let everyone on SOS know that the comment section is finally working again! I spent some time over the Holidays working out all the bugs of the site. The original culprit was my Thesis theme itself which was incompatible with the new WordPress 4.1 version. Thankfully, Thesis provided a patch that […]

Ten Similarities between God and Consciousness

December 23, 2014
Thumbnail image for Ten Similarities between God and Consciousness

What if we could strip away the dogma and literal interpretation of the Bible to reveal an underlying, profound mystery about the concept of God and consciousness? How many would be so daring to believe they could be one in the same? I have found that what we consider as the attributes of God are […]

Why Did Jesus Get Angry or Preach Division?

Thumbnail image for Why Did Jesus Get Angry or Preach Division?

We’re all familiar with the docile Jesus who teaches us to turn the other cheek when someone persecute us. In Luke 6:29, Jesus tells his disciples: “And unto him that slaps you on the cheek offer also your other cheek; and him that takes away your cloak forbid not to take your coat also.” In […]

Thumbnail image for What do The New and Old Testaments Really Mean?

There are many misunderstandings about what the Old and New Testaments of the Bible truly represent, even among esoteric thought. This post will address these important compilations from a greater perspective, and what both mean in the Christian Bible. Once we place these two compilations in context, you’re going to see that everything centers on […]

My site then crashed. Early this week, only the homepage and blog front page were visible. All individual posts and a few […]

Fragmentation and Ascension

Thumbnail image for Fragmentation and Ascension

We all know what happens to water dropped from a significant height. It quickly starts to break up or fragment and the further it falls the more it fragments. That’s the way I understand what it is that we do when we, as Light/Consciousness/Being, descend/project downward from The Source and I believe the following to […]

The Fear of the Lord

December 9, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Fear of the Lord

What does it mean when the Bible admonishes us to fear the Lord? The Bible is filled with scriptures telling us to do this, so it behooves us to get to the bottom of its true meaning. The Christian Church, even in all its diversifying beliefs and denominations, has progressed past the mentality of the […]

Genesis of Life Illustration Left: The Dove, symbolic of the Holy Spirit, approaches the Grail to be Baptized. Note the three Holy Colours: Blue (Heaven), Scarlet (Sacrifice), and Purple (Royalty). The 7-Day Creation has been a source of great confusion over the years. Some believe it to describe a literal week in which God created […]

Section One: The Tree of Temptation I would like to apologize for the length of Part IV, I had not realized it was so long. This is why I’ve broken up the final two parts into further divisions, so that it’s easier to absorb and follow along. I would also like to state beforehand that, […]

Section One: Fibonacci and the Alchemy of Noah Mem and The Flood Returning to 7 and 33, aside from connecting the Golden Section to Creation and Redemption, they are also related to 13 through the Hebrew alphabet itself: 7+33=40; 40=Mem, the 13th letter (recall that the 7th Fibonacci number is 13, and the sum of […]

Part III: Creation: Saturn, The Cube, The Sabbath Day and The Blackening

October 6, 2014

The Seven Planets: Their Names and Gods Returning again to the numbers of the first segment, from a cosmological standpoint the correspondence between seven and thirteen makes perfect sense: the 7-day Creation corresponds to the 7 Classical Planets, and Aries (the Ram) could be viewed as either the 1st or the 13th Zodiac. Certain signs […]
