ANIMAL AND HUMAN SACRIFICE IN THE BIBLE
Stay with me on this. I promise that we’re going somewhere important. The Bible says God was disgusted with animal sacrifice ... so he wanted a human sacrifice. So literal Roman Christianity came along, and said that God is not pleased by just killing just animals, he needs to have a human sacrifice. And so they misinterpreted the myths and parables of Jesus in the same way that the ancients misinterpreted the myths and allegorical metaphysics of Animal sacrifice. See this verse:
"To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to me, says the Lord ... I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts, and I delight not in the blood of bullocks , or of lambs or of the goats ... When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand ... And when you spread your hands, I will hide my eyes from you when you make many prayers. I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood."
The Book of Isaiah (OT)
God says: “I will hide my eyes from you ... your hands are full of blood.” So what are we to make of this statement from scripture? For the answer, we have to go beyond (meta) the literal and into the deeper message between the ink and paper.
When you separate from thought ... you are sacrificing your animal nature. When you sacrifice your human nature ... you become Divine, that is what these esoteric sacrifices are all about. It was misunderstood then, and even still today. The "old man" dies and the "new man" is reborn. The Christ (Divine Spark of God) resurrects from WITHIN you. Your negative animal base nature becomes loving, compassionate, joyful, caring, and unified with your Higher-Self. You have raised your consciousness to a higher vibration, and there’s no going back. As a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, there can be no return to the ways of old, and the existence you once had.
All of the murders and sacrifices were intended to be allegorical and metaphorical. To "kill" everyone and save the young females was a surface story for a deeper message to keep and protect your creative aspect. The feminine is the creative principle in all of nature. God, Father, Source, Spirit, is masculine. Earth, Mother, matter, is feminine. The Divine seed is planted in the earth, and the begotten of God are brought forth into form ... manifest birth. Just as s seed is planted in the earth in order to grow.
The Divine Feminine is the womb of the universe. The Divine Masculine is the void from which all unlimited and unbounded potentiality emanates. The ancient Wisdom of the early Pagan civilization has become lost through incorrect literal interpretation of the Sacred Inner Mysteries of The Ages. Question everything.
