Apollonius of Tyana
Apollonius was born on February 16, 2CE in Tyana, Cappadocia, Greece. He was the original founder of true Essene Christianity, whose precepts originate in Buddhist India and China (Himalayas).
He was replaced by Yeshai Beth Halachmee (pseudo-crucified Essene of 4CE), Jehoshua Ben Pandira (the Jesus of 100BCE) and Christna (the avatar of 3000BCE) by the priests and presbyters gathered by order of Roman Emperor Constantine for the historic First Council of Nicea held beginning in 325BCE.
The New Testament Bible stories are a distorted and revised account of his life and teachings, along with re-written Ancient Wisdom of other spiritual orders and earlier Sun Myths and Godmen from civilizations that left behind secret knowledge that was to be allegorical and metaphorical thus supplying a hidden apocalyptic deeper meaning than that of mere history and literal events.
Apollonius was a real man. He was the awe and wonder of his time - Apollonius of Tyana -the true Christ of the first century AD. Apolonius was born of wealthy parents in the Greek town of Tyana, Cappadocia, Greece, and even his birth was said to be miraculously announced to his mother by an archangel. He was an attractive and precocious child and was sent to reside at the temple of Aescalupius in Tarsus at age twelve, where he was initiated by the priests and where he excelled in religious and philosophical learning and debate, and even performing healing miracles using metaphysical techniques and knowledge.
At the age of sixteen he adopted the Pythagorean philosophy and lifestyle of abstaining from animal food, wine, and women, living only on fruits and herbs, maintaining five years of silence, praying to the sun three times a day, dressing only in white linen (non-animal fabric), going barefoot, and never cutting his hair or beard. A common practice among Nazoreans (Nozrim) of the Essenes and the Egyptian representatives called the Theraputae.
He believed in the immortality of the soul, in metempsychosis (reincarnation), and in a supreme deity ruling lesser deities (much like Gnosticism). He also wrote about astrology. Before starting his public mission he gave away his riches to his relatives with the aim of seeking only knowledge and wisdom.
His mission began by going to Antioch where he taught certain disciples, as well as learning the mysteries of that city’s temple, Apollo Daphne. He also traveled to India and Egypt, bringing back with him the doctrines of Krishna and Buddha, which then ultimately became the early foundations of the Christian religion.
As a Roman citizen, he travelled freely within the Roman empire acquiring the reputation of a social and political reformer. He was fearless and spoke out against the tyranny of Nero and Domitian for which he was jailed but later released. His most recounted incident was at the court before emperor Domitian, where he dissapeared into thin air before they could lay any kind of charge on him. (Are you recognizing any similarities with Paul of Tarsus yet?)
Wherever he went he attracted large crowds and held them spellbound by his words and deeds. Kings, rulers, and common folk constantly sought him for advice and he gave it freely. He travelled the known world and always stood his ground and was regarded by many through his knowledge and ways as a god in the flesh. He compiled the epistles, and retired to the isle of Patmos where he wrote the book of Revelation (credited to the writer named John). Little is known about his death, but it is thought he lived past the the age of 100, and shortly thereafter ascended to the inner earth paradise … a Kingdom called Agartha. Still today, a no-fly zone exists in the region said to be the Inner Earth entrance to Agartha.
Temples and statues were built in his honor, and for the first three centuries BCE, he was regarded as a demi-god and saint. The popularity of Apollonius’ teachings became a threat to the then decaying Roman Empire, so in 325 AD, At the Council of Nicea, Emperor Constantine and his bishops devised the New Christianity which would turn attention away from Appolonius, to a Judean carpenter who they ascribed the name of (Iesous Christos) Jesus Christ. Then began the process of destroying all records of Apollonius and his Essene/Theraputae Christianity. Scrolls and writings - irreplaceable records - were destroyed and this meant burning the libraries, including the most famous one at Alexandria, Egypt. The mobs who enforced the new changes met stiff resistance from the people, and tens of millions were eventually killed, tortured, or martyred in the process.
Important changes in the biblical texts occurred ever since then, such as the removal of the doctrines of reincarnation, astrology, and vegetarianism; to be replaced by their opposites - a mortal soul, a hellfire for diviners, and permission for meat-eating and wine drinking. The Romans were not about to give up their feasts of wine and meat. Ultimately, what was once among the ancients veiled as parable, and allegory, was converted to false literal historical representation of miracles, conquests, rituals, suffering servants, and punishment and reward both here and in the afterlife.
If ever there was one singular man that was the template for the Jesus story, it would’ve been Apollonius of Tyana. His accomplishments, along with many ancient sages, previous Godmen, and even Simon Magus were all assembled into one story, one man, one religion. This was an attempt to unify the Empire under one Universal (Catholic means universal in Greek) Church System that would bring the heyday of the Roman Machine back online and moving well into the future. Ultimately, the Empire was merged with the Church and became what is now still one of the greatest powers in the world. The autonomous city/state known as The Vatican. There are but three city/states in the world. Washington, DC - which controls the Military Powers, the London Financial District under the leadership of the Crown Temple which controls all finances in the world, and the Vatican which is the ecclesiastical power of God on Earth.
