Alexander the Great and the flat Earth
Globe or flat, earth needs to be ruled. Here is the second post about this subject, where you will read about an ancient king and old prophecies connected with him. Kings some time have succeeded in fulfilling prophecies. This is a post about Alexander the Great, the temple of Sabatius and the Gordian knot.
In 333 BC Alexander, arriving in the city of Gordium, in Turkey, was faced with a seemingly unbeatable challenge. A challenge that had proved to be the match of all those who had taken it on for over 1000 years.The Gordian Knot was undone and the rest, as they say, is history.
Some people think that one of the most legendaries political personalities in human history was Alexander. In seven or eight years he accomplished the most dazzling military conquest recorded in history. But he lived only a few years more; and … died of a fever in 323 when only 32.
Mosaic at Pella
Alexander was born in Pella about October 356. Although the Bible doesn’t mention his name, Daniel foretold his rule. The Scriptures, about two centuries before his birth, prophesied that he would become the head over the fifth world empire.
He was the son of a king and inherited an empire that included most of the Greek city-states. But Alexander’s own conquests are what have made him admired for over two millennia. When still in his early twenties, he set out to conquer the world. So many stories have been told and retold about this fellow, that he has become a nearly mythological character.
Sometimes Alexander pretended to be himself the son of a god called Zeus-Amon. Of course his divine reputation helped him keeping his difficult hold over the people in his vast and disparate empire. He was an early precursor to the European monarchs’ claims about the divine right of kings. (About this subject read my post Rulership over the flat earth)
One day, according to the legend, a peasant, Gordius, entered a public square of Phrygia in an ox cart. An oracle had previously informed the populace that their future king would come into town riding in a wagon. Seeing Gordius, therefore, the people made him king. In gratitude, Gordius, who later became the father of Midas, dedicated his ox cart to the temple of Sabatius. The chariot was tied up in front of the sanctuary with a highly intricate knot . The oracle foretold that the person who untied the knot would rule all of Asia and become master of the world. The chariot became the symbol of the political power over the flat earth.
The problem of untying the Gordian knot resisted all attempted solutions. Then in the year 333 B.C., twenty three-years Alexander made his glorious entry in the temple of Sabatius. Everyone was stumped when Alexander came along and figured out that a sword was needed. According to the ancient chronicler Arrian, the impetuous Alexander was “seized with an ardent desire” to untie the knot. So he drew his sword and sliced it in half with a single stroke. Whatever method he used, the young king was immediately hailed as having outsmarted the a
“Cheat!” you might cry, his method did seem to go against the spirit of the problem. Surely, the challenge was to solve the puzzle solely by manipulating the knot, not by cutting it. Anyway, true to the prophecy, Alexander went on to conquer Egypt and large parts of Asia before his death at age 32. As the story goes, it was the year 333 B.C.

Alexander and the Temple of Sabatius
When Alexander reached the regions of Phrygia he entered the temple of Sabatius. The term Sabatius has the same root of the Hebrew Sabaoth and the Greeks used the term to refer to the Most High. The Hebrew term Lord of Sabaoth means the Lord of Armies or the Lord of Hosts. The Jewish scholars are of the opinion that the Greek God Sabazios was actually the Eternal Himself, Lord of the Hosts. Even the Reatine Varro, one of the greatest representatives of the ancient Roman-Greek culture, states that the Jewish God is called by the Chaldeans IAÔ (Rer. Div. I, fr.17 Card). Thus, who would not think of associating Sabatius, Sabaoth, and Sabbatum?
As a matter of facts, Sabaoth is a transliteration from the Hebrew sebaot. It is the plural of saba that means army. From the Bible, the expression passed in the liturgy. “Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus, Deus Sabaoth” is a most solemn expression at the elevation moment during the Mass celebration.
About iconography of Sabatius there’s only one known example. It’s an engraved jasper found near Trevignano Romano in 1844 or 1884. It represents a character with the head of a bird and mermaid legs. At the edges of the stone, you can read the writing IansΛ Sabatias. It’s difficult to understand the letter written after Ians. When interpreting the letter as Λ it could be liberator, when interpreting it as a non-completed Δ, it could stand for Domus or Deius. Guazzetti, the scholar who found the jaspers, suggests the inscription could combine Sabatius with Janus. Iao, in the Septuagint, is the corresponding Greek for the holy name.
In ancient times it was a trend to establish correspondences among different divinities and national forms of worship. For instance, a correspondence could be established between mercury-hermes, hermes-toth, zeus-juppiter and so on. They also tried to associate the Hebrew’s God with Kronos.
Similarly, in Spain was found an inscription dedicated to Zeus-Serapis-Iao. (Perera, Ebenes, El sello de Dios, pp58-59). The same happened to Juppiter Sabatius and Jahweh Sabaoth. So, it is not much surprising that even among the Jewish there was some form of worship rendered to Sabatius.
Alexander, the Chariot and the number 333
Thanks to the popularity of the Alexander fable, “Gordian knot” has entered the lexicon for an intricate obstacle. One of its earliest appearances came in the Shakespeare play Henry V. Here the titular character is praised for his ability to “unloose” the Gordian knots of politics. Likewise, the saying is now commonly used to describe a creative solution to a seemingly insurmountable problem. Of course a solution in the regular way was really impossible. So this fable has an important lesson to teach, too.
First of all, let’s consider the symbol represented by the chariot in connection whit the flat earth. It is a symbol of royalty. Also, Ezekiel’s prophecy has a striking picture of the same symbol: the four wheels of the earth and the tracks of the sun. In order to know more about this subject read my article on this blog. Ezekiel’s chariot: a surprising vision of our four earthly pounds
As I have already exposed, Ezekiel gave a powerful representation of our flat earth ponds. Ezekiel presented the platform of the earth as a frame set with four similar flat wheels. Following the Bible, you can deduce that 333 is a number strictly linked to the measures of the earth.
In 333 BC Alexander the Great conquered Persia under Darius III. It was at the Battle of Issus where a great Persian army estimated at half a million met utter defeat. He also conquered western Asia Minor, Phrygia, Byblos, Sidon, Syria, etc. Alexander the Great and his four successors are commonly believed to have fulfilled the prophecy. They were the ones who realized the prophecy in Daniel 8:5-8 as interpreted in Daniel 8:20-22.
The historian Josephus even recorded that Alexander spared Jerusalem after the high priest presented the book of Daniel to him. It was a prophecy foretelling of a mighty Greek king conquering the Persian empire. Thereupon Alexander pushed southwards to Egypt where he founded the city of Alexandria. After a short period of glory, his power finished at the moment of his death.
Of course, God’s kingdom will be different. In a thousand years, it will be able to solve all the earthly political knots and give perfect solutions. All the earth will be a garden.
Now, let’s try an answer to this question: What kind of number is 333?
Nasa states the following data:
The Sun’s mass is 333,000 times that of the Earth
(NASA Sun Fact Sheet).
I consider this notation by NASA of great importance. It is an evident hint that shows they are aware of the real measures of the earth and know which is the height of the cone of the sun. At its inferior basis, it reaches a height over the Earth of 3330 km. Here below is a table showing a few official sun/earth comparison data according to the NASA Sun Fact Sheet.
|Mass (1024 kg)||1,988,500.||5.9724||333,000.|
|GM (x 106 km3/s2)||132,712.||0.39860||333,000.|
Here is a table I posted on this blog on January 13, 2017: 111, 333, 666, and many other curious digits. What are Demlo numbers?
It’s about the trajectory of the Sun.
As my readers surely already know, it covers a cone trajectory following these data:
|Tropic of Cancer||6660||6660|
|Tropic of Capricorn||13320||3330|
So what about the year 333? Why numbers seem to be so meaningful not only when measuring space quantities but also when measuring time? Just an answer is possible All the earth is one single realm under one spiritual power which controls space and time.
For instance, consider number 111. It’s the length of the ark in centimeters but also the distance in kilometers between each parallel of the earth. Honestly, I think that’s an amazing cosmic correspondence.
Prophecy is only comprehensible when you get aware of the bigger, spiritual entities and correspondences that rule over us. On the contrary, prophecy would not be possible and you could only relate to chaos.
It is a concept based on the belief that there is a fixed natural order to the cosmos. Humanity really enjoys freedom, but there is a set course of things that cannot be deviated from, and over which one has no control. It is something related to God.
Alexander could be taken as a model of human power over the earth. It’s an entity that has a set lapse of time that is not at all indefinite. It is just temporary. Alexander’s empire had a limit of 10 years. Similarly, one of the beasts of Daniel’s visions and certain beasts described in Revelation have ten horns. These represent all the powers or kings of the earth.
The Earth map used in the UN flag: 33 sectors
After a vision of a seven-headed wild beast that rises out of the sea, John saw another vision. It was a dragon telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image of the seven headed beast. Beasts are consistently used in the Bible as symbols of political governments. That image must, therefore, represent some agency reflecting the characteristics of the earth-dominating political system. Logically it should have seven heads and ten horns, like the beast out of the sea of which it represents. (Revelation chapters 13 and 17). I have already introduced this agency on the blog as the United Nations.
Above you can notice an image of this organism flag. It’s a grid probably representing parallels and meridians dividing the Earth into 33 sectors. You maybe wonder what it means and what relation have these numbers with the Earth.
In order to understand the special meaning of this flag, I’ll quote a passage from Charles Kenneth Johnson who, when considering the United Nations organization at the end of world War II, wrote:
“Uncle Joe (Stalin), Churchill, and Roosevelt laid the master plan to bring in the New Age under the United Nations. After the war, the world would be declared flat and Roosevelt would be elected the first president of the world. When the UN Charter was drafted in San Francisco, they took the flat-earth map as their symbol.”
The UN did adopt for its official seal a world map identical with the one on Johnson’s office wall. But Franklin Roosevelt died coincident with the UN’s birth, and the other imminent events described by Johnson never came about.
What did happen, according to conventional historians, was that Russia and the U.S. began space programs. After the Russians sent up Sputnik in 1957, the space race was on in earnest. The high point came in 1969 when the U.S. landed men on the moon.
That, according to Johnson, is nonsense, because the moon landings were faked by Hollywood studios. “Until then,” he says, “almost no one seriously considered the world a ball. The landings converted a few of them, but many are coming back now and getting off of it.”
Perhaps the Space Shuttle was intended to bolster the beliefs of these backsliders.
Thus, up to now, power has been exercised over the earth in different times and forms but always in imperfect, temporary ways. Huge political knots remain without solution and earth is still craving for a good and right government. God’s Kingdom will soon provide the needed rulership.
