You Love the Queen of Heaven and have for 7000 yrs. History has away of standing still unlike Time which travels through the heavens. Who is the Queen of Heaven that Jeremiah is talking about?
16 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
17 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.
18 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
19 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee. (Jeremiah 44)
Ashtaroth, the plural form of the goddess’s name in Hebrew, became a general term denoting goddesses and paganism. Astarte/Ashtoreth is the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites burned offerings and poured libations . Astarte, goddess of war and sexual love, Astarte was worshiped in Egypt and Ugarit and among the Hittites, as well as in Canaan. Her Akkadian counterpart was Ishtar.
Libations–a drink as an offering to a deity, tribute , oblation.
Oblation–” he poured the first oblation to the gods”–like your money/tithes ect.
Since the queen of heavens counterpart was Ishtar then we have to travel back to the floodplains of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers ,”the cradle of civilization”. the first written records date back to 3500 BC their religious beliefs is that we are workers for the gods and laboured with them to the chaos of life in check since the beginning of time. Order was created out of chaos by the gods. Here is where the counterpart of Ishtar was birthed the “Queen of heaven”.
Ishtar, (Akkadian), Sumerian Inanna, in Mesopotamian religion, goddess of war and sexual love. Ishtar is the Akkadian counterpart of the West Semitic goddess Astarte. Inanna, an important goddess in the Sumerian pantheon, came to be identified with Ishtar. This is the queen of the heavens, nursing a god 3500 BC. Part of her cult worship was temple prostitution and many centuries she was known as the “Queen of the Universe”.
They all brought sweet cakes (bread) and drinking offerings (wine) to the queen of the heaven which in reality was to feed the temple priests. So you were feeding the priests and the sacred prostitutes who satisfied their sexual desires. This was cultic communion onto the goddess Ishtar who nursed the gods.
Ishtar was viewed as both genders, male and female,she is identified in the Greek as Aphrodite and the Roman god Venus. The Roman Catholic church, Orthodox and Methodist still use the same iconography eg. the virgin mary the queen of the heavens; nursing the god Christ. The same virgin mary who is the mother of Isa/Ishtar.
Pagan cults came out of the flood pains of the two heads of the rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, in the temples of the Sumer people the Akkadian Empire. Like rivers the religious practices flowed in Egypt and later in the Roman Empire and into the early christians church. This was practiced called polytheism the worship of multiple gods and goddess in the case of the modern church it is the pagan worship of the virgin Mary whose counterpart is Ishtar the queen of the heavens. Nursing the gods. The iconic picture on the right is an artist rendition of the virgin Mary, represents the altars at the turn of the century 1500 AD, all they did was adopt the cult practices that go back thousands of years to the “cradle of civilization” .
Cult practices that go along with the worship of the gods and goddesses, the council of Nicaea in 325 AD adopted Easter in a letter to the church of Alexander;
We also send you the good news of the settlement concerning the holy Pasch, namely that in answer to your prayers this question also has been resolved. All the brethren in the East who have hitherto followed the Jewish practice will henceforth observe the custom of the Romans and of yourselves and of all of us who from ancient times have kept Easter together with you.
There is nowhere in the New Testament or the Old Testament about Easter, the only thing you see is the resurrection of Christ and the festivals of feasts which occurred in the spring. It was the early christian church that broke with Jewish monotheism by creating Easter that goes back to Astarte/Ashtoreth the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites burned offerings and poured libations
Follow pagan cults what does Ezekiel have to say about this;
13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, (Ezk. 37)
He carried me back to the floodplains and the cities the valleys between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers and sat me down by that altars in the center of the city.
He sat me down in the valley the altars in the center of the city and moved me into the wilderness and there were many dead. The city Babylon where the great flood occurred during Noah’s time. The flood to wipe out the sexual immorality that man committed in the garden of Eden when he fell from heaven and created giant statues to the gods in heaven who had intercourse with the goddesses of heaven, the Queens. Breathe back the four winds that are like the four rivers and breathe life into their dry bones. These are the words of the Lord. Next time he will come in fire, there are 7 fires and 7 Judgements.
The queen of the heavens has been around for 7000 yrs and you fornication to the whore of Babylon of offering wine and drink, communion, you are consuming the blood of the goddesses that live in you from the floodplains, awaiting Judgment.
I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
