The Four Beasts Of Daniel Chap.7 Beast #1- The SPHINX.
YaHuWaH has been prompting me to talk about this for some reason, and it is very involved. I didn’t want to start something I couldn’t finish or understand, and right now I only get half of it. That’s how HE operates though. He can be such a tease… I want to talk about the first beast in this session.
The first beast is a Winged Lion. The Hebrew calls it a “SHE” and the wings are vulture’s wings.. It sounded like a Sphinx and that’s exactly what it is.. We already went over a similar story with the story of Oedipus REX. (See my post on this one). “She” was a progeny of the nine MUSES which we also discussed. The ones that mated with PAN. A Chimera. Full- fledge DNA/Demon manipulation.
The winged sphinx of Thebes, the most famous in legend, was said to have terrorized the people by demanding the answer to a riddle taught her by the Muses. Eventually, Oedipus gives the proper answer. The sphinx thereupon kills herself and Oedipus rules supreme.
This particular Sphinx cited in Daniel is an EASTERN “winged” Sphinx. The Word here in Daniel says it was given a mortal body and became human. Through Egyptian influence, the sphinx became known in Asia. The sphinx did not occur in Mesopotamia until about 1500 bce, when it was clearly imported from the Levant. In appearance, the Asian sphinx differed from its Egyptian model most noticeably in the addition of wings to the leonine body, a feature that continued through its subsequent history in Asia and the Greek world. Another innovation was the female sphinx, which first began to appear in the 15th century bce.
About 1600 bce the sphinx first appeared in the Greek world. Although derived from the Asian sphinx, the Greek examples were not identical in appearance; they customarily wore a flat cap with a flame-like projection on top. The Phrygian cap identified Trojans such as Paris, and the Anatolian god Attis who was later adopted by the Roman and Hellenic cultures.
In the later parts of Roman history, the god Mithras — whose worship was widespread until suppressed by Christianity — was regularly portrayed as wearing a Phrygian cap, fitting with his being perceived as a Persian god who had “come out of the East”
So who is the King being referenced here? My guess would be MITHRAS as he came out of the EAST . (From Helios the SUN).
One of the most characteristic features of the Mythraic Mysteries is the naked lion-headed figure often found in Mithraic temples. He is entwined by a serpent, (or two serpents, like a caduceus) with the snake’s head often resting on the lion’s head. The lion’s mouth is often open, giving a horrifying impression. He is usually represented having four wings, two keys (sometimes a single key) and a scepter in his hand. Sometimes the figure is standing on a globe inscribed with a diagonal cross. In the figure shown here, the four wings carry the symbols of the four seasons and a thunderbolt is engraved on the breast.
The name of the figure has been deciphered from dedicatory inscriptions to be Arimanius, which is nominally the equivalent of Ahriman, a demon figure in the Zoroastrian pantheon ,while some scholars identify the lion-man as Aion. (Ari means LION). Although the exact identity of the lion-headed figure is debated by scholars, it is largely agreed that the god is associated with time and seasonal change.
So there you have it. Our first “Seasonal” or better yet “Directional” Beast is descended from the demon Sphinx hybrid from the EAST and is a hybrid being that becomes a mortal man. He was a fabricated being. (made from a rock, i.e. steel, Human, and Demon)
He was not THE ROCK, however. (YaHushuWaH- the ROCK) The fabricator of life itself.
He was AI #1. An artificial steel/ demonic/human computer hybrid – TRANSHUMAN
complete with his THINKING Phyrigian CAP!!
There is NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. period.
Postscript> EUROS (or Eurus) was the god of the East Wind, one of the four directional Anemoi (Wind-Gods). He was associated with the season of AUTUMN and dwelt near the palace of the sun-god Helios the sun in the far east. The four winds bring forth the four beasts.
