We have finally reached the point where we can begin looking at the heart of the hidden esoteric story and the origin of much of the meaning to some of the symbolism we see around us today.
In the first five parts of this series we have looked at a few of the many different aspects of the symbolic Dream Vision and how it is the key to unlocking the allegorical part of the Biblical story.
We have also seen how this symbolism and its meaning, changes the context of much of what we have be taught to believe and call religion that is suppose to be made-up of myth and legend. And additionally we have seen that this esoteric interpretation the symbolic Dream Vision provides an entirely new timeline of history, which appears to answer a few of the mysteries of our almost forgotten past. In the next part we will take a closer look at this new timeline.
But we must first look at the meaning of some of the symbols and begin our understanding of how it connects to the ancient cylinder seal artifacts that seem to support it. We will also begin looking at the actual origin of the esoteric symbolism that we see every single day and how it is rooted in an almost forgotten war that led to the destruction of entire world.
We will begin our journey into the world that is the esoteric with where we left off in Part V with the end of the Exodus in the Dream Vision of Enoch.
And sometimes their eyes were opened, and sometimes blinded, till another sheep arose and led them and brought them all back, and their eyes were opened. And the dogs and the foxes and the wild boars began to devour those sheep till the Lord of the sheep raise up [another sheep] a ram from their midst, which led them. And that ram began to butt on either side of those dogs, foxes, and wild boars till he had destroyed them all. And that sheep whose eyes were opened saw that ram, which was amongst the sheep, till it forsook its glory, and began to butt those sheep, and trampled upon them, and behaved itself unseemly. And the Lord of the sheep sent the lamb to another lamb and raised it to being a ram and leader of the sheep, instead of that ram which had forsaken its glory. And it went to it and spoke [spake] to it alone, and raised it to being a ram, and made it the prince and leader of the sheep; but during all these things, those dogs oppressed the sheep. And the first ram pursued that second ram, and that second ram arose and fled before it; and I saw till those dogs pulled down the first ram. And that second ram arose and led the [little] sheep. And those sheep grew and multiplied; but the dogs, and foxes, and wild boars feared and fled before it, and that ram butted and killed the wild beasts, and those wild beasts had no longer any power among the sheep and robbed them no more of ought. And that ram begat many sheep and fell asleep. And that house became great and broad, and it was built for those sheep: and a tower lofty and great was built on that house, for the Lord of the sheep, and that house was low, but the tower was elevated and lofty, and the Lord of the sheep stood on that tower and they offered a full table before Him. And again I saw those sheep that they again erred and went many ways, and forsook that their house, and the Lord of the sheep called some from amongst the sheep and sent them to the sheep, but the sheep began to slay them. And one of them was saved and was not slain, and it sped away and cried aloud over the sheep; and they sought to slay it, but the Lord of the sheep saved it from the sheep, and brought it up to me, and caused it to dwell there. And many other sheep He sent to those sheep to testify unto them and lament over them. And after that I saw that when they forsook the house of the Lord [of the sheep] and His tower they fell away entirely, and their eyes were blinded; and I saw the Lord of the sheep how He wrought much slaughter amongst them in their herds until those sheep invited that slaughter and betrayed His place. (Book of Enoch, Chapter 89, verses 41 through 54)
These verses are where we begin getting into the heart of the hidden story of the esoteric and where we also start understanding the true meaning of the symbols. The first thing to be aware of, is which part of the Biblical story that the above verses relate too. It is also another good example of how the Dream Vision ties directly into specific books and stories contained within the Bible. The specific books of the Bible that the above verses relate to are, Judges, Samuel I and II, Kings I and II, and Chronicles (*Samuel I & II and Kings I & II are also commonly known as Kings, books one through four). And much as in Part V - Exodus, you can see that the above text covers a rather large amount of information and again is a good example of how the Dream Vision is directly related to and is providing the general outline of the story. But that isn’t what we are going to focus on here.
The more important part here is the tower and the sheep that wasn’t slain. This is one of the most important parts to the esoteric belief system and the reason is because it is also the beginning of almost forgotten war that led to the end of everything and gave birth to our world of today.
The first part to understand is the tower and some of its many relationships to the ancient artifacts known as cylinder seals. For this I will have to refer you to the earlier posts, ‘Ancient Cylinder Seals & the Esoteric’, Parts I, II, III, IV, & V. The links are provided below and are necessary to understand the next part.

It is this realization that the Dream Vision of Enoch is in fact the same story that is told on the ancient cylinder seals and that the tower spoken of is in fact the Temple and Citadel of King Solomon. This understanding is the next key to understanding the meaning of many of the esoteric symbols we see around us today. Out of the many different symbols you just saw on the cylinder seals, I will only be focusing on three here. Two of these three symbols are rather familiar to all, the third one is the real mystery that we will explore here. The three symbols (as seen below) are the eight-pointed-star, the crescent moon, and what is traditionally known as the solar disk, which appears to also the ‘winged-solar-disk’ that is seen above the towers on the cylinder seals.
Each of these three symbols are typically interpreted as representing an individual god, with the eight-pointed-star traditionally representing Ishtar, the crescent moon representing Sin, and the solar-disk representing Shamash. What isn’t typically known is the esoteric meaning to these symbols.
This esoteric meaning to the symbols is reason why they are so important to the followers and also why they place them on so many different things. To keep this simple and short, I will just tell you the esoteric meaning, the details can be found in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH.
To the followers of the esoteric the eight-pointed-star has a few different meanings and it is typically one of the most misunderstood symbols. The reason for this is because it is also directly related to the more familiar and simplified symbol of the All-seeing-eye. To a follower of the esoteric, this not only represents the all seeing eye of God, but also represents the ‘heaven’, or as Enoch called it, the abode of the Host of Heaven.
More on the esoteric meaning of this symbol can be found here, ‘The Esoteric Meaning to the Eye of Province - http://theforbiddenknowledgeofenoch.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-esoteric-meaning-to-eye-of.html.
Here it has a little bit of a different meaning, and that it represents a group. It is the group that is traditional remembered as the Lord God of the Bible and his angles. In the Dream Vision this is the Lord of the sheep and in my book this is the Main-group. This is the secret esoteric knowledge of these symbols, they represent not only individuals, like the Lord of the sheep, but also the groups that were allied with primary individuals. You will understand more as we look at the next two symbols.
The esoteric meaning to the crescent moon symbol is that it represents the Fallen Angel, Lucifer also remembered as the Bringer of Light. The Dream Vision refers to these as the star that fell from heaven and is also the Fallen-group in my book. The crescent moon symbol comes from the Babylonian tradition and is directly related to the symbolism on the cylinder seals. This is one of those places that the followers of the esoteric combined or use different mythologies to help hide this story.
The final symbol, the solar-disk, has very special meaning to the followers of the esoteric and it is one of the missing pieces to the overall story. It represents an almost forgotten third party, besides the ones remembered as the Lord and the Bringer of Light in the Judeo-Christian tradition. The reason I say almost forgotten is because this third party is partly remembered even to this day even though both of the other sides have tried very hard to write them out of the story. And who is the mysterious third party? She is remembered in many ways and by many names. To some she is the Mother Goddess, to others she is just the great mother, to Christians, she is remembered as Mary, and to the ancient Greeks she was Demeter, to most others she was some type of fertility goddess. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_goddess)
This is the third missing party to the story, the one remembered as the Mother Goddess. This is the secret esoteric meaning to the number three and why it was/is so important. It represents the three original groups that our ancestors called gods. This is also the secret esoteric meaning to the trinity.
If you take this esoteric interpretation of these three symbols and return to the ancient cylinder seals (and a great number of artifacts) you will discover that these symbols also appear to represent, what we would call today, political symbols and how each group was aligned each other.
Sometimes they are separate, as seen above, but more typically, they are shown with two of the symbols grouped together and the third one off to the other side by itself. As I have studied this grouping, it appears that the eight-pointed-star symbol and the solar-disk symbol are very seldom grouped together, it is more common to see either the eight-pointed-star with the crescent moon symbol or the solar-disk symbol with the crescent moon. This leads me to suspect that the group that the solar-disk represents must have been rather equal in standing and power with the eight-pointed-star group and that the crescent moon group was the deciding factor in which of the two primary groups held the upper-hand.
That is as far as we will go today on the esoteric meaning of these three symbols and I will return to them at some point in a future post. We will now begin looking at the more important part of above verses from the Dream Vision and its esoteric meaning.
If you remember back to Part V of The Ancient Cylinder Seals & the Esoteric you saw a series of cylinder seals showing an individual being taken away. What I left out was just who was being taken away and what was going on. These cylinder seals are showing us the sheep that wasn’t slain ‘and it sped away and cried aloud over the sheep; and they sought to slay it, but the Lord of the sheep saved it from the sheep, and brought it up to me, and caused it to dwell there’. As we see here.
This is the most important event that you have most likely never heard of, and it is the thing that changes everything. Again to help keep this simple and short, I will just tell you esoteric story, the details can be found in Chapter eight ‘The Tower’ of my book THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH.
The first part of the story comes directly from the Bible and 2 Chronicles, Chapter 36, verses 14 – 16
Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed every much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by this messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place. But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy. (KJV)
The Dream Vision now provides the rest of the narrative and gives the missing detail and that all the messengers, but one, where killed. When combined with the Biblical text, I think it would be safe to assume and highly likely that these messengers of God, were tortured before they were slain in cold blood. The Dream Vision goes to tell us that one lone messenger escaped and fled to be saved by the Lord of the sheep.
This is where the esoteric picks up the next part and brings us right back to an ancient artifact, and how this is one of those missing pieces to understanding the esoteric belief system.
The messenger that escapes, is no regular old prophet, but is in fact the one known and remembered as Enoch. I know it sounds strange at the moment, but you need to hear the rest of the esoteric part to understand.
To the esoteric the story goes like this. The Lord comes to Enoch (and others) and sends him to Jerusalem as his messengers & prophets. The people turn on Enoch and the other messengers of God and begin torturing and killing them.
And the reason they do this is because they have either joined, or been corrupted, by the other side (depends on your own personal viewpoint) The esoteric believes that the people freely joined the other side to fight back against the one remembered as the Lord God, they think and remember him as a tyrant that oppressed the people and the other side. They also believe this is the opening shot in a war that led to the end of this world. It is also thought that this was the first time the other ‘gods’ and their followers fought back.
It is said that Enoch escapes and flees for his life to Egypt and the temple located in front of the pyramids at Giza on the Nile. He then uses the Caduceus or heralds staff, at the pyramid temple to call to the Lord of heaven. And just before the others that are chasing him come upon him, he is saved by the Lord and taken away from the generations of the earth.
This is the event that is recorded on the ancient cylinder seals seen in Part V of The Ancient Cylinder Seals & the Esoteric and the image above. The rest of the story comes from two other sources, one being an ancient artifact that clearly shows this event and a much more modern image that leaves no doubt of the connection between this story and the esoteric.
This image comes from the religious precinct known as the Tophet at Carthage. It is believed to have been used as grave marker, because it was found set-up over burial urns containing the cremated bodies of babies, small children, and animals, which had been sacrificed to the goddess Tanit and her consort Baal Hammon.
Now that we have some understanding of symbolism and its relationship we can very easy interpret this artifact. Starting from top and moving downward, you will see the symbol of the heaven, which is typically shown as the eight-pointed-star. Just under it you will see the crescent moon symbol and a small dot within the moon symbol, with both sitting above a triangle, and a solar-disk symbol to each side. Then we see an anthropomorphized figure being taken up above a square object, which is a symbolic representation of a temple. And finally we see the Canaanite symbolism for the Caduceus.
When you put it all together, we see Enoch at the temple in the Nile valley and that he used the Caduceus to cry to the Lord and Lord of heaven coming to save and take him away from the generations of the earth. In this context and based the cylinder seals showing the same scene, the ‘solar-disk’ symbol more likely represents a ship of some type or the Lord God.
The next image comes from the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, by A.G. Mackey, Revised Edition, Volume I. The first thing you should notice is that it is essentially exactly the same as the ancient artifact.
Again starting at the top, you see the symbolism for the heaven. Just below it is the esoteric symbolism of the Lord, you should make special note of how it is a triangle that could be spinning.
We then see Enoch the scribe with the symbols of a dove and a crescent moon by his head. There is also the Caduceus to the left and a globe to the right. Then below Enoch we see a temple with a clear triangle symbol with a small round dot in the center. Then finally we see the two columns, which do have a Masonic meaning that I will not be looking at here in this post.
Again, this is essentially exactly the same as the ancient artifact from Carthage. So now you can see with your own
And that brings us to the end of our journey into the esoteric symbolism and the almost forgotten story they tell…In our next edition we will take a special look at the ancient cylinder seals and the symbolism of the Pleaides cluster of stars. We will also start our next leg of the journey and begin looking the war this all started. -RJ-
