Ishtar- Wife of Semjaza or Shemchazay
Ishtar- Wife of Semjaza or Shemchazay
30 Days of Judaic Myth- Matthew Kressle.net
The angels landed upon Mount Hermon, where they could see to the far ends of the earth. Each chose the woman that most attracted them, and the women, flattered that these angels took interest in them, were eager brides. The angels were wise in the art of building and agriculture and healing, and taught these arts to humankind. They taught people how to kindle and maintain fire, how to read and write, to draw, to work clay, and many other valuable skills. Soon the earth thrived with bustling trade from all their creations, and people moved from one end of the earth to the other.
Of all the angels’ brides, the most beautiful was Ishtar, the wife of Shemchazay. Shemchazay watched her constantly, never letting her beauty slip from his gaze. He built her a house to match her incomparable visage. Daily, he brought her gifts to decorate the house, hoping to please her. But forever his wife remained forlorn and aloof from him. Never once did they engage in sexual relations.
Enoch Chapter 6, VI whole chapter
1. And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. 2. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.'
3. And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' 4. And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' 5. Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 6. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 7. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaq1el, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. 8. These are their chiefs of tens.
Now it should be clear to you why Astar/Ashtoreth was worshiped. Remember our sermons on how Ashtoreth is tied to Christmas, or how there are Astar poles all over the earth in every culture that represents phallic worship? This is why...she was the wife of the Chief Fallen Angel, the Leader.
We will go out of order from part 2 and get right into the Egyptian deity Astar/Ashtoreth for a brief reminder.
Egyptian Goddess of Heaven Astar/ Ashtoreth
The LION'S TARES Ministry Sermon
Ashtoreth: H6253 עַשְׁתֹּרֶת ʻAshtôreth, ash-to'reth; probably for H6251; Ashtoreth, the Phoenician goddess of love (and increase):—Ashtoreth.
Strong's Number H6253 matches the Hebrew עַשְׁתֹּרֶת (`Ashtoreth), which occurs 3 times in 3 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV
1Kings 11:5 -6
For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.
Ishtar, called the Queen of Heaven by the people of ancient Mesopotamia (modern Iraq), was the most important female deity in their pantheon. She shared many aspects with an earlier Sumerian goddess, Inanna (or Inana); the name Ishtar comes from the Semitic language of the Akkadians and is used for the goddess from about 2300 B.C.E. on. A multifaceted goddess, Ishtar takes three paramount forms. She is the goddess of love and sexuality, and thus, fertility; she is responsible for all life, but she is never a Mother goddess. As the goddess of war, she is often shown winged and bearing arms. Her third aspect is celestial; she is the planet Venus, the morning and evening star.
Greek Goddess Hera
Roman Name: Juno
Hera (Roman name: Juno), wife of Zeus and queen of the ancient Greek gods, represented the ideal woman and was goddess of marriage and the family. However, she was perhaps most famous for her jealous and vengeful nature, principally aimed against the lovers of her husband and their illegitimate offspring. Hera herself was notable as one of the very few deities that remained faithful to her partner and she therefore came to symbolise monogamy and fidelity.
Aztec Goddess Mictecacihuatl
In the mythology of the Aztec people, the ancient culture of central Mexico, Mictecacihuatl is literally "lady of the dead." Along with her husband, Miclantecuhtl, Mictecacihuatl ruled over the land of Mictlan, the lowest level of the underworld where the dead reside.
In mythology, Mictecacihuatl's role is to guard the bones of the dead and govern over over the festivals of the dead. These festivals eventually added some of their customs to the modern Day of the Dead, which is also heavily influenced by Christian Spanish traditions.
In my research I did not find a Hindu Goddess that fits this description, so we will move on to the Chinese goddess.
Chinese Goddess Queen Mother of the West
Popular Gods and Goddesses of Ancient China- ancient.eu
She was the queen of the immortal gods and spirits, especially female spirits who lived in the mystical land of Xihua ("West Flower"), and goddess of immortality. She is also known as Xiwangmu or Xi-Wang-Mu and lived in a castle of gold in the Kunlun Mountains, surrounded by a moat which was so sensitive that even a hair dropped on the waters would sink. This moat served as protection for her Imperial Peach Orchard where the juices of the fruit of the trees gave immortality. Xiwangmu is shown as a beautiful woman with sharp teeth and a leopard's tail, or as an old, unattractive woman with a hunched back, tiger's teeth and a leopard's tale, depending on her mood. She rewarded her followers with eternal life but punished those who angered her. During the Han Dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE) her cult was very popular and shrines were built for her by the government. She is the wife of Mugong, Lord of the Spirits, who watches over male spirits in the land of Donghua ("East Flower") but is sometimes seen as the wife of Shangti.
Roman Catholic Saint: Mary
The LION'S TARES Ministry
Virgin Mary= Mother Goddess = Queen of Heaven: Christianity and Knights Templar
The Templars dedicated themselves to the Virgin Mary. Undoubtedly this was the influence of their original eminence gris, Bernard of Clairvaux, who also had a strong devotion to Mary.
What Does the Catholic Church Teach about Mary?
The Catholic Church firmly believes that Mary was immaculately conceived. Since God rejects all sin, and the purpose of Christ’s incarnation was to release man from the grasp of Satan, it was not suitable that our redeemer be personally associated with sin. This means that unlike the original sin that we as humans inherit at the moment of conception, Mary was exempt from this sin, and in like manner, was not subject to sin throughout her life. In Luke 1:28, The Angel Gabriel addresses Mary “Hail, full of grace!” The fullness of grace would not have been hers, had she any stain of sin. In the Apostolic Constitution by Pope Pius IX on the Immaculate Conception, he iterates this teaching:
Mary’s body has been glorified in heaven and she has been given an important role near her Son as Queen of Heaven and Earth. Mary is entitled “queen” because she is the Mother of Jesus, who is truly a King of kings. With the queenship Mary has been given by her Son, Mary offers abiding mercy and compassion, interceding for all of God’s children. In the book of Revelation 12:1, Mary’s status as queen is reflected, “and a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” The feast of Mary’s queenship is celebrated on August 22nd of each year.
