Voodoo and Babylonian Origins of Black Madonna


Black MadonnaThe worship of the Mother Goddess was popular all over the world since ancient times and is popular today.

Mother Goddess was usually associated with fertility.

Different cultures worshiped her in different ways, attributing to her aspects similar to their own.

For example, black people would worship the black Mother Goddess, and Egyptian people would give to her their own religious attributes, and so did Hindus.

In Africa the Divine Mother is worshiped in many aspects. We find the same to be the case in India. Ancient Greece, Egypt and Babylon also had their own mother goddesses.

In Catholicism we find Mother Mary representing different aspects of the Mother Goddess. One deity manifesting as many is a very usual trait in Hindu pantheon. Of course, the idols representing Virgin Mary in actuality represent the Mother Goddess of pagans.

Goddess IshtarThe Mother Goddess of ancient Sumer was Inanna. Her Babylonian equivalent was Ishtar. She was the goddess of love, beauty, sexual desire, wisdom, war and fertility.

We find a similar representative of this goddess in Haiti voodoo religion too, who was called Ezili Dantor.

Haiti slaves who were forced to convert to Catholicism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries continued to worship their voodoo gods under the disguise of the worship of catholic saints and Virgin Mary.

They found it easy to worship the black Madonna because they, I assume, recognized her to be their own deity – even the facial scratches attested to it.

Ezili DantorEzili Dantor, the black Madonna equivalent, was a fierce goddess who was a patron of homosexuals, single mothers, abused women and children.

She was the goddess of passion, sex and war.

People who are used to invoking her report that she needs few sacrifices to do one’s bidding and therefore she’s evoked by many.

She is described as being fond of knives. This particular deity belongs to the family of water spirits.

She has seven children, as some sources suggest. One of the children is told to be her husband which is similar to the Tammuz and Semiramis story.

She can be fierce, wild, aggressive, and difficult to control. She is independent and strong.

Here’s a popular song in her honor:

Seven stabs of the knife, seven stabs of the sword,

Hand me that basin, I am going to vomit blood,

The blood runs down…

Although she vomits blood, she continues on. This demonstrates that she would avenge her enemies despite the sustained injuries. When during voodoo rituals a person becomes possessed by this evil spirit, they might start vomiting blood.

Ezili Dantor myth tells that there was a long time rivalry between her and her sister Ezili Freda. Her sister represents lasciviousness, flirtation, dissatisfaction in love and pain. Her Catholic equivalent is the Weeping Mary (Our Lady of Sorrows) with a pierced heart. The reason she’s represented with a pierced heart is as follows.

Ezili Dantor and Ezili Freda

Ezili Dantor and Ezili Freda

These two sisters could not stand each other.

There was a strong jealousy between them. They both were in love with Ogou Lwa.

They fought over this man and during the battle Ezili Dantor took her dagger which she always carried with her and stabbed Freda in the heart.

That’s, I assume, where we get the Weeping Mary idol  from – the stabbed heart was the sign of Ezili Freda.

Freda, in turn, removed the dagger and cut Ezili Dantor’s face, thus scarring her. Thus you can see the scars on the Santa Barbara Africana image, which was painted from the inspiration of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa painting.

Black Madonna and Ezili Dantor Facial ScratchesI don’t know if the scratches on the Black Madonna painting indeed point to her voodoo origins since the official story is different, but this particular image of Madonna indeed looks like that of a fierce tribal warrioress.

This particular spirit, Ezili Dantor, was conjured up in a voodoo ritual carried out by Haiti slaves in 1791.

A black pig was sacrificed to evoke her and drunk by the ritual participants.

Some sources suggest that during this ritual voodoo priests also made a deal with the devil by writing the contract with pig’s blood in which they dedicated themselves and Haiti to him for 200 years in return for his protection.

When the spirit of Ezili Dantor was conjured up and possessed the voodoo high priestess Marinette, she ordered to kill the French oppressors. This caused the slave revolution.

Her own people cut out her tongue as they were afraid of her disclosing voodoo secrets if she was caught by the French. She was eventually burnt up alive. On January 1, 1804, the nation of Haiti was born.

This particular spirit likes black pig and black hen blood sacrifice, the offerings of wine, rum and some beers, daggers and strong unfiltered cigarettes.

Her days are Tuesday and Saturday. Her Catholic saint associations are: Our Lady of Czestochowa, Mater Salvatoris, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, our Lady of Prompt Succor and she is also associated with the Hindu divinity Parvati in her Kali or Chandi aspect.

This last association is also proved by the fact that the gypsy people see their goddess Parvati in Black Madonna paintings. They worship Parvati in a catholicized way under the pretext of worshiping a girl who helped early Christian missionaries (they say Mary herself too) when they were persecuted by Romans in France.

But they themselves know that it’s just a story to continue their Hindu religion abroad, since they themselves unofficially acknowledge to be worshiping their Mother Goddess Parvati as seen from their personal websites. Quoting:

St. Sarah, Kali Sara, Sara Kali, Sara-la-Kali, Sati-Sara, The Black Madonna, The Black Mother… many names for one Goddess-Saint sacred to Roma all over the world. She is the Goddess of Fate, good fortune, fertility, and protection– and Roma honor her in pilgrimage, by worshiping her statue, through dance and community… so many ways, so many incarnations of the goddess who accompanied the Roma all the way from India.

Kali Worship in FranceThey attend the pilgrimage to Les Saintes Maries in France and other related ceremonies elsewhere honoring black female divinities.

They even worship the black mother in the same way that they do back in India – they give offerings to her and during festivals they take her idol into the sea just like the Sati-Sara idol of India which is carried into the waters of the Ganges river.

The North Indians who migrated to Europe and now are called gypsies or Roma people worship their warrior goddess Parvati as they did when they were in their home country.

Parvati in some Hindu myths is told to have given birth to all the other female goddesses. Sometimes those other goddesses are told to represent Parvati’s aspects. For example, her fierce aspect is Kali and her demon-killing form is Durga. Gypsies consider her to be their protectress.

Our Lady of Regla

Our Lady of Regla

Gypsies simply took their Hindu religion and now worship the same idol they worshiped in their country under the disguise of Catholicism so that their religion is preserved.

The same has been done in Brazil and Cuba to preserve the worship of African ocean spirits such as Yemaya.

These ocean spirits have been blended with the catholic figure of Virgin Mary and are now represented by her “Our Lady of Regla” aspect.

So that is quite funny. Catholicism is all about the worship of pagan deities under the pretense of a Christian religion, and then the converted pagans continue worshiping the same demons under the pretense of Catholic religion not knowing that they don’t need to pretend because these are the very same demons that they worship in their religions. Some of them, I assume, recognize their own worshiped idols in the idols of Catholics, so the transition to another religion becomes almost non-existent.

The Virgin Mary of Catholicism, therefore, is not the mother of Jesus but the Queen of Heaven, the Mother Goddess that was worshiped by pagans for thousands of years. She is worshiped in many cultures in different ways, and therefore we have differences of her appearance. She’s also worshiped according to her different aspects, which are sometimes represented as different goddesses.

Therefore the worship of Mary embodies these variations of the Mother Goddess appearance also, and points to the fact that it’s not the human being Mary that is worshiped, but the Mother Demoness who can shape-shift and is the female aspect of the god of fertility who is called Moloch, Baal, Satan, Shiva, Saturn, Cronos and by many other names in different cultures. His phallus is worshiped by Hindus to this day.

Moloch and Ishtar

So these two gods (together with their many aspects and manifestations) are the gods of fertility, sex and war.

That’s what we see people worshiping today when they watch violent movies with sexual content and when they pay money to attend satanic music concerts.

The same gods are worshiped to this day, though the way they are worshiped has been made more subtle, though children and animals are still sacrificed to these demons by some.

Dear readers, please don’t think that Virgin Mary that Catholics worship is the same Mary through whom our Savior has come into this world. It’s the Mother Goddess that’s worshiped and not Jesus’ mother (who shouldn’t be worshiped anyway since she was only a human being).

I advise you to stay away from any place that has the statue of Mother Mary as it’s a place dedicated to demons. Supernatural events can indeed take place in such locations like they are reported to do. But that’s not because those places are sacred, but because Satan, too, can transform himself into an angel of light and cause many great miracles.

Jesus Wasn’t Crucified on Friday – It’s a Roman Catholic Lie

The Cross of JesusJesus gave the only sign for his death, burial and resurrection – the sign of Jonah, who was in the belly of a fish for three days and three nights:

“And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.”

Luke 11:29-30

Also in Matthew 12:39-40 we read Jesus’ prophesy of his burial that leaves no doubt about the full 72-hour period of His burial:

But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Since it is believed that Jesus was crucified on Friday afternoon, was buried just before the sunset the same day, and rose from the dead on Sunday morning, that cannot make up 72 hours by any stretch of imagination.

Since Jesus himself prophesied to be in the heart of the earth for three full days and nights, either Jesus didn’t fulfill the prophesy and thus failed to save the world, or we misread the details of his burial days.

The Argument about the Fullness of 72 Hours

Some Bible teachers say that by saying “three days” Jesus didn’t mean exactly three days. They say that sometimes Jewish people would say “three days” or “three years” without meaning exactly that time period.

This is true – sometimes when Jewish people would say “three years” they could mean less than three years or more than three years, and the same applies to “three days”. However, if they say “three days and three nights”, this means the specific time period of 72 hours, because the inclusion of nights was meant to convey the exactness of that time period.

We find this proved from the scripture too. For example, in Ezekiel 28:2 people are asked to fast for three days and three nights – so that they observe full 72 hours of fasting.

Therefore if Jesus gave the story of Jonah spending three days and three nights in the belly of a fish as the only sign of what was about to happen to him, we must take it literally.

Jewish People Knew about the Fulfilled Time Period

Since this prophesy was fulfilled, scribes and pharisees had to invent some other lie denying His resurrection, so they paid the Roman soldiers to lie that His body was stolen from the tomb by His disciples:

And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

Matthew 28:12-13

If Jesus wouldn’t have spent full 72 hours in a grave, they would definitely use this against Him to prove that He wasn’t the Messiah; because they desperately sought to deny Him in every way possible – of course they would use such an obvious failure of prophesy fulfillment against Him.

But they didn’t. That’s because they knew Him to have fulfilled the prophesy.

Jesus’ apostles couldn’t find anything wrong with the burial date either – because they also knew it to be fulfilled. That’s why there’s no talk in the Bible about Jesus failing to fulfill His own prophesy. It was known that He did fulfill it.

So this points us to the fact that it’s not the date that’s at fault, but our understanding of the Bible.

The Reason for the Miscalculation of Jesus’ Burial Period

There are a few reasons why people miscalculate Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection times.

Firstly, people aren’t aware of other Sabbaths apart from the weekly ones. Secondly, they aren’t aware of how time was calculated in the Jewish culture.

Thirdly, the Roman Catholic Church pagan festivals of “Good Friday” and “Easter Sunday” were Christianized. Popes squeezed Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection events into their pagan feast period to continue celebrating the fertility of their mother goddess under the disguise of Jesus worship.

Let’s address all these topics more in detail.

High Days and Jewish Time

Most Christians know about the weekly Sabbaths that the Jewish celebrate, which are our Saturdays. However, not many are aware of high Sabbaths – the high feast days, the three annual celebrations that are:

  • Tabernacles
  • Pentecost
  • Passover

These are three annual feast days that are also called Sabbaths or high days; during them people aren’t allowed to do servile work in the same way like during weekly Sabbaths.

These feast days are more important than weekly Sabbaths; that’s why they are called high days. In the Gospel of John we find the apostle mentioning that the preparation day during which Christ was crucified followed the high day:

The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

John 19:31

Though Jesus legs weren’t crushed to fulfill the prophesy of Psalm 34:20:

He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

So this means that Jesus was crucified on the preparation day before the Passover – the High Sabbath. This day was the fourteenth day of the first Jewish month Nisan – our April. Therefore we have this sequence of events:

  • 14th Nissan – Wednesday – Preparation Day – Jesus Crucified and buried. He gave up the ghost at around 3pm our time and was buried at around 6pm – before the sunrise. Jewish calculated their hours from the sunrise; so the first hour of the day began at around 6 to 7 am.
  • 15th Nissan – Thursday – Passover – High Sabbath – full day and night in the tomb.
  • 16th Nissan – Friday – full day and night in the tomb (Jewish weekly Sabbath starts from this day till our Saturday evening – thus the women couldn’t get to the grave until Sunday).
  • 17th Nissan – Saturday – weekly Sabbath – Jesus resurrected at around 6pm, thus spending 72 hours “in the heart of the earth” – in a tomb.
  • 18th Nissan – Sunday – Mary with other women (Mary and Salome) comes to the empty tumb early in the morning.

Poisonous Roman Catholic Leaven

Another reason people miscalculate the crucifixion and resurrection days is because of the poisonous leaven of the Roman Catholic doctrines. They introduced the celebration of Good Friday and Easter Sunday, which have nothing to do with Jesus. These celebrations were fertility celebrations taken from pagans.

Eostre

Eostre – pagan goddess associated with April, hares and eggs

They are celebrated for the worship of the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the dawn whose name was “Eostre”.

I believe she’s the same Queen of Heaven that was worshiped throughout thousands of years in all pagan cultures under different names, like Ishtar and Isis.

The hot cross buns may also be dedicated to her if she was indeed the Queen of Heaven, as the Bible mentions this heathenish practice in Jeremiah 7:18 and 44:19.

What’s more, eggs and rabbits have nothing to do with Jesus but all to do with fertility. Rabbits procreate frequently and bring forth many offspring; eggs, of course, represent fertility too.

So Easter Sunday is the festival to worship the procreative powers of nature and has nothing in common with Christ.

Prophet Joel’s Eclipse and Blood Moon Prediction

Prophet Joel predicted the eclipse that would occur during the crucifixion.

In Acts 2:19-21 Peter quoted prophet Joel’s prophesy:

And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Ancient historian Phlegon of Tralles (born in the 2nd century AD in the Roman Empire, modern day Turkey) in “Olympiades” writes that:

In the fourth year of 202 Olymbiad [AD 32 – 33] a failure of the sun took place greater than any previously known, a night came on at the sixth hour of the day [noon] so that stars actually appeared in the sky; and a great earthquake took place in Bthynia and overthrew the greater part of Niceaea.

Thallus wrote a history of the eastern Mediterranean world since the Trojan War. His original writings are lost, but he’s quoted by Julius Africanus, a renowned third century historian. Africanus writes that:

Thallus, in the third book of his histories, explains away the darkness as an eclipse of the sun – unreasonably as it seems to me.

Thus historians prove the incredible events that followed Jesus’ death – the darkening of the sun, the blood moon, and the earthquake that followed, which fulfilled Joel’s prophecy.

Comma Location in a Verse “Proving” Sunday Rising

Original Bible manuscripts didn’t contain commas. Therefore we do not have to agree with their placement in our English Bible translations. So the Bible verse of Mark 16:9 that’s traditionally read in this way:

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Could also be read in this way:

No when Jesus was risen, early the first day of the week he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, (…).

…Thus denying the Sunday morning resurrection.

Conclusion and Resources

All the necessary dates confirming the full 72 hours of Jesus burial period are in the Bible. People don’t see this because they are blinded by the false doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church of “Good Friday” and “Easter Sunday”. We also may not understand the dates correctly if we are ignorant of the high feast days and the way that Jews calculated time.
