The Angel of Christianity

The city of Ephesus is the most famous of the seven  cities or churches mentioned in the Revelation of John or The Book of Apocalypse. The city was originally Greek but later it became a center of Roman power and culture.

This brings us the mindset of the Christian religions or the Angel of Christianity.

As such it was renowned for religious and philosophical activities. In one sense in ancient times you could have said that all roads led to Ephesus.

Its religious activities while it was Greek was quite noteworthy and its trade flourished but in Roman times it was even more influential as a city of learning and bureaucracy of the Empire.

It is located in such a way that trade routes through Asia and sea voyages through the Aegean sea were easy and the city grew tremendously rich and influential.

The temple of Artemis was built in Ephesus, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world which perhaps has given the city most of its fame in our times. But there were many famous temples and one of the grandest libraries of ancient times was built there.

When the Roman emperor Constantine legalized Christianity as a state sanctioned and state protected religion of the Empire, something strange occurred.  For the first time in history a mindset was established to act as a failsafe to safeguarding a powersystem.

The church which was born at the time was a very interesting beast indeed. It more or less killed off the spirit of early Christian faith, as inspired by the great prophet Jesus from Nazareth and completely washed out from people what his mission was all about.

This brutal spiritual act effectively fulfilled an earlier prophecy of Jesus when he asked in his famous and inspiring prayer in the garden of Gethsemane “let this cup of poison pass from me”; that he’d be turned into deified idol.

The canonised church wich later divided into The Roman Catholic Church and The Greek Orthodox Church, was structured in such a way that it became a state within the state, so powerful and rigid that when the Roman empire itself fell, the two churches withstood the fall and more or less kept its riches intact.

It established its own emperor – patriarch and pope – and kept on expanding anywhere it could and was fierce when it came to safeguarding its power over people. Its tradition of power and dogma is still holding fast to its mindset which more or less is based on three pillars:  Greek and Roman philosophy is one, Mithraism is another, Appolonian religion is yet another.

Effectively the Angel who inspired Constantine to build a foundation for this powerful mindset – which has shaped the western culture for centuries fused idolatry and egoistical thinking, cemented by greed and fear – created a spiritually crippling beast.

{2:1} Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; {2:2} I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: {2:3} And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. {2:4} Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. {2:5} Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. {2:6} But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. {2:7} He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Like it says in the prophecy “Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words”. In other words, blessed is he who is able to read through veils and connect the stars in such a way that we see them for what they are. When you read the message to the Angel with all this in mind, and if you’ve selfeducated yourself about history of events, cultures and ethics, you’ll see this clear as day:
