masada zaddikim

Who was more insane ? The Zaddikim Zealots - for mesa riding (long way to haul supplies);
or the Roman's - for building the ramp (same for them)?

"The Communists of the early Revolution, who, like their Capitalist counterparts had their roots in pragmatic materialism, were also noted for initiating a sustained and vigorous assault upon religion and spirituality. Anatolii Lunacharskii, Commissar for Enlightenment, had founded a movement known as 'God-building'. This new concept "sought to replace traditional religion with human solidarity, with mankind itself as the object of worship." - Troy Southgate

Zaddikite War on Human Nature
morphs into a War on Nature

722 BC Hezekiah, according to the Misnah, was the son of Ahaz, the 13th King of Judah.

Hezekiah enacted sweeping religious reforms after witnessing the destruction of the northern kingdom of Israel by Assyrians led by Sargon.

These included a strict mandate for the sole worship of Yahweh and a prohibition on venerating other deities within the Temple in Jerusalem.

Hezekiah purified and repaired the Temple, purged it of idols, reformed the priesthood and centralized the worship of Yahweh at the Jerusalem Temple.

Archaeologist Israel Finkelstein says, "The key phenomenon - which cannot be explained solely against the background of economic prosperity - was the sudden growth of the population of Jerusalem in particular, and of Judah in general."

Archaeologist Amihai Mazar explains, "Jerusalem was a virtual city-state where the majority of the state's population was concentrated."

The reign of Hezekiah saw a notable increase in the power of the Judean state as there was a large influx of Israelites fleeing from the Assyrian destruction of the northern state of Israel.

715 BC King Hezekiah of Judah, backed by Nubian Empire, revolted against King Sennacherib of Assyria.

Sennacherib sacked many Hebrew villages, but failed in his attempt to take Jerusalem.

There is no description of how the siege ended, but the annals record a list of booty sent from Jerusalem to Nineveh.

Hezekiah remained on his throne as a vassal ruler.

Hezekiah's capitualtion informed the later suicide at Massada by his last remaining psychopathic Zaddikim followers.

597 BC King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia captures Jersalem and installs Zedekiah.

Zedekiah revolts against Babylon, and entered into an alliance with Pharaoh Hophra, the king of Egypt.

589 BC King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylonia lays siege to Jerusalem.

587 BC Jerusalem falls and Solomon's Temple is destroyed.

Most of the elite were taken into captivity in Babylon.

The city was razed to the ground.

167 to 160 BC The Maccabean Revolt is led by Simon Maccabeus against the Seleucid Empire and the Hellenistic influence on Hebrew life.

The revolt was in response to Antiochus IV, decree to 'rent in pieces' and burn Hebrew 'books of the law' found in Jerusalem in 168 BC.

Simon Maccabeus was the leader of a Hebrew rebel army, the Maccabees, that took control of Judah, which at the time had been a province of the Seleucid Empire.

The Maccabees found the Hasmonean dynasty.

The Hasmonean dynasty asserted their version of the Hebrew religion, partly by forced conversion with the help of a high priest sect, the Sadducees, to expand the boundaries of Judah by conquest in the vain attempt to reduce the influence of Gnostic Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism.

Jerusalem Dig Uncovers Ancient Greek Citadel

When the Romans replaced the Seleucids as the great power in the region, they granted the Hasmonean king, Hyrcanus II, limited authority under the Roman governor of Damascus.

The Hasmoneans were hostile to the Romans, and the following years they witnessed frequent insurrections.

A last attempt to restore the former glory of the Hasmonean dynasty was made by Mattathias Antigonus, whose defeat and death brought Hasmonean rule to an end, and Judah became a province of the Roman Empire.

37 BC Herod, a son-in-law of Hyrcanus II, is appointed King of Judah by the Romans.

Granted almost unlimited autonomy in the country's internal affairs, he became one of the most powerful monarchs in the eastern part of the Roman Empire.

A great admirer of Greco-Roman culture, Herod became "Great" when he launched a massive construction program, which included the cities of Caesarea and Sebaste, the port at Caesarea Maritima, and the fortresses at Herodium and Masada.

Herod's most ambitious project was the expansion of the Second Temple in Jerusalem making it into one of the most magnificent buildings of its time.

Herod's rebuilding of the Second Temple in Jerusalem was done so that he would "have a capital city worthy of his prestige and grandeur."

4 BC Near death Herod has a change of mind about the succession.

According to the final version of his will, Antipas' elder brother Archelaus was now to become King of Judah, Idumea and Samaria, while Antipas would rule Galilee and Perea with the lesser title of tetrarch.

After Herod's death Judah came under direct Roman administration.

6 AD Archelaus is deemed incompetent by Augustus and replaced with a prefect. Antipas goes on to govern Galilee and Perea for forty-two years.

These territories are separated by the region of the Decapolis, with Galilee to the north and Perea to the south.

Threats to stability in both areas were ongoing when Antipas took office.

While Antipas was making his case to Augustus in Rome, dissidents led by one Judas son of Hezekiah (Ezekias, in the Septuagint) attacked the palace of Sepphoris in Galilee, seizing money and weapons with which they terrorised the area.

In a counterattack ordered by Quinctilius Varus, Roman governor of Syria, Sepphoris was destroyed by fire and its inhabitants sold off as slaves.

Herod Antipater or Antipas built Tiberias, modeled on a Greek city, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee with baths, a stadium, a royal palace and a sanctuary for prayer.

Antipas also rebuilt and fortified Sepphoris, while adding a wall to Betharamphtha in Perea.

An ancient route linking Sepphoris to Legio, and further south to Samaria-Sebastia, was paved by the Romans at this time.

At the time of Jesus of Nazareth, Sepphoris was a large settlement.

Reza Aslan describes the period of time of Jesus's growing into maturity:

"Rich, cosmopolitan, deeply influenced by Greek culture, and surrounded by a panoply of races and religions, the Hebrews of Sepphoris were the product of the Herodian social revolution - the nouveaux riche who rose to prominence after Herod's massacre the heirs of the Hasmonean dynasty and their priestly aristocracy.

Jesus, while living in Nazareth, worked as a craftsman at Sepphoris, where, during his youth 'the largest restoration project' of his time took place."

63 BC - 313 AD During the Roman occupation of Jerusalem the Pharisees (Kohanim) of the Temple, became increasingly corrupt and were seen by the Hebrew people as collaborators with the Romans, whose mismanagement led to riots, revolts and general resentment.

An inner circle of the Sadducees, the surviving high priests of the Hasmonean dynasty, continued to develop the tenants of the Zaddikim while fueling the resentment of the Zealots, who became their shock troops.

66 AD Growing anger against increased Roman suppression of Hebrew life resulting in sporadic violence esclates into a full-scale revolt.

The Roman governor, Gessius Florus, responded by plundering the Temple, claiming the money is for the Emperor. The next day he launches a raid on the city, arresting numerous senior Hebrew merchants.

This prompts a wider, large-scale rebellion and the Roman military garrison of Judaea is quickly overrun by the Zealots, while the pro-Roman king Agrippa II, together with Roman officials, flee Jerusalem.

Confrontation between the Sadducee Jerusalemites and the mainly Zealot factions of the Northern Revolt under the command of Yohanan ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba, erupted into bloody violence.

When the Idumeans enter Jerusalem fighting on the side of the Zealots they kill the former High Priest, Ananus ben Ananus - the man who ordered the execution by stoning of James the brother of Jesus.

Simon Bar Giora, commanding 15,000 troops, is then invited into Jerusalem by the remaing Sadducee leaders to stand against the Zealots, and quickly takes control over much of the city.

69 Bitter infighting continues between the factions of Simon Bar Giora and Yohanan ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba.

70 Superior Roman forces led by Titus besiege Jerusalem.

The first two walls of Jerusalem were breached within three weeks, but a stubborn rebel standoff prevented the Roman Army from breaking the third and thickest wall.

Following a brutal seven-month siege, during which Zealot infighting resulted in burning of the entire food supplies of the city, the Romans finally succeeded in breaching the defenses of the weakened Hebrew forces.

The Second Temple is destroyed and Jerusalem was razed to the ground.


The Sicarii, a splinter group of Zealots, acted as assassins, saboteurs and commanders of the Zealot shock troops for the Sadducees.

The leader of the Sicarii, Menahem, was murdered by rival factions during an altercation; but promised to return in physical form to his people before the end of the 2nd fall of mankind right before his passing from this life.

Saul of Tarsus was born of wealthy Hebrew parents engaged in trade in the first decade of the common era at Tarsus in Cilicia.

Tarsus - a junction point of land and sea routes connecting the Cilician plain (today called Çukurova), central Anatolia and the Mediterranean sea - has long been an important stop for traders and a focal point of many civilizations for the past 6000 years.

There is no indication in Saul's writings that he received rabbinical training.

Hellenistic literature, the Book of Wisdom (Sirach) and other Apocrypha were the sources for his eschatological and theological system.

Saul of Tarsus chose the Jesus the Tekton as the model to provide the fulfillment of the promise of return by the leader of the Sicarii, Menahem, as his model for Christ.

The leader of the Zaddikim, Melchizedek, is the one who raises Christ.

The Hebrew word Zaddikim, defined as "the most perfect righteous Ones" (pronounced ZAD-dee-KEEM: etymology - Hebrew word tzaddik "righteous"), were a splinter cult of ultra-radical Hebrews whose beliefs and practices are recorded in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The last remnants of the Sicarii and the Zaddikim were defeated at the last Hasmonean dynasty outpost at Masada in 73 AD.

The inner circle of the Hasmonean dynasty high priests were Zaddikim.

A manuscript with six chapters of Sirach was found at Masada. Elite survivors of the cult of the Zaddikim following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD fled to Masada, the fortress built by Herod on a mountain plateau near the Dead Sea.

The Tannaim ("teachers"), were teachers of the Oral Law or Oral Torah.

They were direct transmitters of an Oral Tradition passed from teacher to student that was written and codified as the basis for the Mishnah, Tosefta, and tannaitic teachings of the Talmud.

According to rabinnic tradition, the Tannaim were the last generation in a long sequence of oral teachers that began with Moses.

Jesus started as a traditional Tannaim who revealed the fallacies of the teachings of the Sadducees and Pharisees to the people of Judah.

Jesus looked beyond the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees toward ethical teachings that apply to humanity universally while synthesizing and adding the scientific work of the Therapeutae.

Jesus denied the central Hasmonean priniciple of Hebrews as a divine race directly descended from God.

But under the influence of Saul of Tarsus, Jesus, became Chrestus - a superhuman supernatural agent of the Will of God directly descended from Yahweh - the Son of Yahweh.

The patriarchial nomadic warrior Cult of Yahweh is psychologically internalized and reborn through Yahweh's virgin born son Christ who redeems humanity from being human.

This ponerological formula, the basis of the salvationist concept, was originally introduced into Abrahamic religion from the Zorastrian cult of Mithras with its never ending war of good versus evil.

Conservative Jews reject Christ as the "Messiah".

The"Messiah" of Reform Jews conquers the world with the sword - or - fungible assets.

"Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we observe - whether we are Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists - we follow the Talmud. It is our common law." - Herman Wouk

Humans must continue to suffer, just like Prometheus, unless they adhere to the Word of the High Priest.

This ponorological psychoreligious icongraphy imprints the victim-perpetrator ideology into the Abrahamic religions.

The schizoidal victim-perpetrator ideology inserted into the Abrahamic religions makes suffering a divine calling.

This occurred when the conceptual constructs of Hellenism were misunderstood and misapplied to the lives of Zaddikite sycophants.

The student of Greek mythology recognizes the Greek pantheon of gods is modeled on the royalty of the Greek cities states.

The stories that make up the myth of the Greeks, stories of mortals (human = everyman/woman) interacting with gods (psychopathic narcissistic Rulers) are designed to check the elements of unnatural desire expressed by royalty - people who have never known want or suffering.

The Zaddikim adopted this ideal of Royal Perfection not understanding that this is an ideal to be sought after - not a possible physical reality to strive for!

The Zaddikim introduced into the religious life of humanity the notion of a superhuman standard for human behavior, a standard impossible to realize in human and corporeal terms.

Tzaddik, "absolute righteousness," is not just an ideal for good behavior: it is a callous demand for conformity to an impossible standard of purity and self-control - an inhumane ideal.

"While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. 9 In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him." - Hebrews 5:7-9

The Hasmonean cult, who drew their mystic material from mystics living in self-exile in the caves by the Dead Sea, were infected with the belief that they were, if not better than the rest of humanity, at least cognizant of what was required to be better, to excel and surpass the human race, to be tzaddik, pure and righteous like Simon Maccabeus or Menahem and to conquer the world with the sword.

This ideal was incorporated by Christianity into the figure of the human/divine hybrid, Jesus the Christ by the founder of Christianity, Saul of Tarsus.

Saul of Tarsus, who became known as the Apostle Paul (the only 'Apostle' not to have personally known Jesus), arrogantly declared the secret teaching he had received when he was tortured, brainwashed and converted to the Zaddikite cause which was the culmination of the thought of the Hasmonian dynasty Sadducees.

It is extremely strange that theologians and lay devotees of the Christian religion studiously ignore the bizarre disclosure of their highest ideologue, Saul of Tarsus.

It occurs in Hebrews, Chapter 5, where Paul discusses the authority of the priesthood he hopes to establish belief in the divine-human hybrid, Christ / Jesus:

"Every chief priest is chosen to represent them in front of God, that is, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sin. The chief priest can be gentle with people who are ignorant and easily deceived, because he also has weaknesses. Because he has weaknesses, he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins in the same way that he does for the sins of his people. No one takes this honor for himself. Instead, God calls him as he called Aaron.  So Christ did not take the glory of being a chief priest for himself. Instead, the glory was given to him by God, who said,

"You are my Son. Today I have become your Father."

In another place in Scripture, God said,

"You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest."

"During his life on earth, Jesus prayed to God, who could save him from death. He prayed and pleaded with loud crying and tears, and he was heard because of his devotion to God. Although Jesus was the Son of God, he learned to be obedient through his sufferings.  After he had finished his work, he became the source of eternal salvation for everyone who obeys him. God appointed him chief priest in the way Melchizedek was a priest."

Melchizedek means "prince or regent" (melchi-) of "righteousness" (zaddik).

Paul explains that to have a messiah, literally "the anointed," one must have an anointer.

The Hebrew word "Messiah" was applied to a Hebrew king anointed with holy oil, after the model of the enthronement of sacred kings throughout the Middle East.

Saul of Tarsus chose the word Christ, from the Greek verb khrio as a substitution for the Hebrew word "Messiah".

Both Christ and messiah mean "the Anointed One," but with the shift from Hebrew to Greek this term acquires a supernatural spin.

In Pauline Christianity the secret, superhuman identity of the Zaddikite messiah is disclosed in Hebrews, Chapter 7.

"Melchizedek was the king of Salem and a priest for God Most High. He met Abraham when Abraham was coming back after defeating the kings. When they met, Melchizedek blessed Abraham,  and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything he had brought back from the battle. First, Melchizedek's name means "king of goodness," and he is king of Salem, which means "king of peace." No one knows who Melchizedek's father or mother was, where he came from, when he was born, or when he died. Melchizedek is like the Son of God; he continues being a priest forever."

Apart from Paul's disclosure, Melchizedek is only mentioned once in the Torah - Genesis 14:18-20:

"Melchizedek, King of Peace, brought out bread and wine.

He was a priest for God Most High.

Abraham, may you be blessed by God Most High, the God who made Heaven and Earth.

We praise God Most High, who has helped you to defeat your enemies.

Then Abramham gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything he had brought back from the battle. "

Anyone who closely reads Paul's description of Melchizedek may well wonder what kind of entity is being indicated.

A humanoid in form that is neither born nor dies, has no parentage or genetics in human terms, and lives perpetually in possession of virtual immortality.

Melchizedek is the secret agent behind the Zaddikite ideology of impossible perfection, which also implies retribution for all those who do not meet the transhuman ideal, or who harm and oppose those who revere the transhuman ideal, the faithful ones who look for their material salvation, for their final ultimate release from the human condition into immortality.

What George Steiner called "the blackmail of transcendence," was the the inhumane belief system that arose, not from mainstream Judaic religion, but from the ultraconservative Zaddikim.

Steiner wrote that "the creed of Sinai tore up the human psyche by its most ancient roots," but the Zaddikite ideology of perfection was even more devastating than the guilt-complex incurred by the divinely ordained rules of the Mosaic Law.

The Zaddikite "summons to perfection" (Shepard) has put a curse upon the entire world.

The transhuman ideal is the main ponerological psychological tool of the dominator mindset that operates in the religious-political alliance of the global power game.

It is the driving mindset behind the neo-fuedalism agenda of pyramidal domination of human society on a planetary scale.

Among the Mystery centers in Palestine was the encampment of the Archontics, just below Qumran Khirbet on the west bank of the Dead Sea.

Archontics saw Melchizedek lurking in the the long dark shadow of patriarchy and the global theocratic delusion of the New World Order.

Archontics were aware of what hides in the shadows of the human psyche.

As social phsycologists, the Archontics, perceived the infection of an alien mindset in the doctrines of the Zaddikites or Zealots.

Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai had to flee Jerusalem secretly to avoid being killed by the Zaddikim after he opposed the Sadducee high priest interpretation of the Red Heifer ritual.

73 AD The Zaddikim of the Dead Sea become suicidal.

The Zaddikim, children of the Sadducee elite, make their last stand at Masada.

"Since we long ago resolved never to be servants to the Romans, nor to any other than to God Himself, Who alone is the true and just Lord of Mankind, the time is now come that obliges us to make that resolution true in practice. We were the very first that revolted, and we are the last that fight against them; and I cannot but esteem it as a favor that God has granted us, that it is still in our power to die bravely, and in a state of freedom." - Elazar ben Yair, leader of the Zaddikim

After this oration, the last remnants of the Hasmonean dynasty, the Zaddikim men, kill their wives, their children, and then each other.

For over 1750 hundred years the tale of Masada is a forgotten episode.

358 The Last Great Sanhedrin, an assembly of seventy-one rabbis appointed to sit as tribunal the ancient Land of Israel, is held.

The Nasi, functioned as head, while the Av Beit Din was second to the Nasi along with sixty-nine general members.

The last universally binding decision of the Great Sanhedrin was to abandon the Hebrew Calendar.

1926 Isaac Lamdan pens "Masada," a poetic history of the anguished Jewish fight against a world full of enemies.

According to Professor David Roskies, Lamdan's poem, "more than any other text, inspired the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto."

"The Diasporia of Exile was needed in order to construct a long-range memory in which an exiled nation race was posited as the direct continuation of 'people of the Bible' that preceded it." - Professor Shlomo Sand

1953 Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Moshe Dayan, initiates the practice of holding the swearing-in ceremony of Israeli Armoured Corps soldiers who had completed their Tironut (IDF basic training), on top of Masada.

The ceremony ended with the declaration: "Masada shall not fall again."

The soldiers climb the Snake Path at night and are sworn in with torches lite.

2007 A new museum opens at Masada in which archeological findings are displayed in a theatrical setting.

The Zaddikite impulse lives on in the refounding of the Hasmonean dynasty as the state of Israel with a new title for their reminiscent ideology, Zionism.

The psychopathic beliefs of the Zaddikim infect humanity globally with a suicidal mania demanding unattainable perfection disguised as political- religious beliefs and perverted into a War on Nature.

This website defines a new religious ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
