Summer solstice 2017: What is the summer solstice? A Short Prophecy


                                                                      


Question: "Who was Baal?"

Answer: Baal was the name of the supreme god worshiped in ancient Canaan and Phoenicia. The practice of Baal worship infiltrated Jewish religious life during the time of the Judges (Judges 3:7), became widespread in Israel during the reign of Ahab (1 Kings 16:31-33) and also affected Judah (2 Chronicles 28:1-2). The word baal means “lord”; the plural is baalim. In general, Baal was a fertility god who was believed to enable the earth to produce crops and people to produce children. Different regions worshiped Baal in different ways, and Baal proved to be a highly adaptable god. Various locales emphasized one or another of his attributes and developed special “denominations” of Baalism. Baal of Peor (Numbers 25:3) and Baal-Berith (Judges 8:33) are two examples of such localized deities.

According to Canaanite mythology, Baal was the son of El, the chief god, and Asherah, the goddess of the sea. Baal was considered the most powerful of all gods, eclipsing El, who was seen as rather weak and ineffective. In various battles Baal defeated Yamm, the god of the sea, and Mot, the god of death and the underworld. Baal’s sisters/consorts were Ashtoreth, a fertility goddess associated with the stars, and Anath, a goddess of love and war. The Canaanites worshiped Baal as the sun god and as the storm god—he is usually depicted holding a lightning bolt—who defeated enemies and produced crops. They also worshiped him as a fertility god who provided children. Baal worship was rooted in sensuality and involved ritualistic prostitution in the temples. At times, appeasing Baal required human sacrifice, usually the firstborn of the one making the sacrifice (Jeremiah 19:5). The priests of Baal appealed to their god in rites of wild abandon which included loud, ecstatic cries and self-inflicted injury (1 Kings 18:28).

Before the Hebrews entered the Promised Land, the Lord God warned against worshiping Canaan’s gods (Deuteronomy 6:14-15), but Israel turned to idolatry anyway. During the reign of Ahab and Jezebel, at the height of Baal worship in Israel, God directly confronted the paganism through His prophet Elijah. First, God showed that He, not Baal, controlled the rain by sending a drought lasting three-and-one-half years (1 Kings 17:1). Then Elijah called for a showdown on Mt. Carmel to prove once and for all who the true God was. All day long, 450 prophets of Baal called on their god to send fire from heaven—surely an easy task for a god associated with lightning bolts—but “there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention” (1 Kings 18:29). After Baal’s prophets gave up, Elijah prayed a simple prayer, and God answered immediately with fire from heaven. The evidence was overwhelming, and the people “fell prostrate and cried, ‘The LORD–he is God! The LORD–he is God!’” (verse 39).

In Matthew 12:27, Jesus calls Satan “Beelzebub,” linking the devil to Baal-Zebub, a Philistine deity (2 Kings 1:2). The Baalim of the Old Testament were nothing more than demons masquerading as gods, and all idolatry is ultimately devil-worship (1 Corinthians 10:20).





Note; this is the longest day of the year, so have a nice, great, long, long day LOL.
It's 114 degrees, almost all week , I thought it was summer LOL.

I was given this short word.

It is now the summer of Chaos 2017 big, big events, and much world chaos, we are seeing it now, but from now- to the time of War, we will see a big decline in freedoms and we will see much, much, more terrorism, real, or false flag. England will have it bad, on USA soil, it comes, from today to WAR.

I saw this and said, watch for an event, blood sacrifice, chaos, pagan devil worship, a big fire it is to the sun god, and fire is used to worship the idols.
Who is the sun god;

There are many from different countries, religions and pagans, so there are many.



Since the beginning of human existence, civilizations have established religious beliefs that involved the Sun's significance to some extent or other. As new civilizations developed many spiritual beliefs were based on those from the past so that there has been an evolution of the sun's significance throughout cultural development. Even as late as the 17th century the development of tarot cards for fortune telling included a card that represents the Sun's influence on the life of man.
If we examine history we see that the religious beliefs of the very first civilization, the Sumerians, weren't totally focused on sun worship but they did have a Sun god. While the Sumerian's Sun god wasn't the most powerful deity in their culture it initiated the development of future Sun worship. Over the centuries the Sumerian Sun god's influence grew while other god's influence diminished.
By the time the Egyptian civilization was at its peak, the Sun god had reached a supreme position. However, Sun worship reached its height and most involved form with the Aztec, Maya, and Inca civilizations of South America. The Inca culture was totally based on worship of the Sun.
Civilization

Many names depending on the region: Yhi
African:

Chinese:
Ten Suns
Egyptian:
Ra or Re
Greek:
Apollo
Japanese:
Ama-terasu
Polynesian:
Maui
Roman:
Apollo
Sumerian:
Utu
Light was brought into the dark world by Yhi, the sun spirit. As few living things can grow without light, there was a close association between the two great spirits Yhi and Baiame (the All Father or father spirit). Light and warmth were necessary for the preservation and growth of the animate world of Baiame's creation, and these were provided by Yhi
Mahu and Liza are the main African gods They are the twin children of Nana Buluku. The twins express the balance between earth and sky as Mahu is the female (earth, moon, fertility) and Liza is the male (sun, sky, power).

The Sun is Yang and it is made of fire, while the moon is Yin. In Chinese mythology it is said that there exists ten Suns, which take turns appearing in the sky and are carried across the heavens by a chariot, which is drawn by dragons and driven by their mother.
In ancient Egyptian culture the Sun was considered the manifestation of god. He was called Ra. But his full name is Ra - Atum - Khepri. (Ra - the Sun at the zenith (noon), Atum - the setting Sun, and Khepri - the rising Sun). Ra created the first divine couple, Shu and Tefnut, who are the parents of the earth and sky. Man was born from the tears of Ra, and as man is created in his image and is issued from his flesh, the earth was created to provide care and support for mankind.
Apollo is considered the Sun god, but he became the patron god of music, poetry, mathematics and medicine as well. 
 
The Japanese call their country Nippon or Nihon, which means "origin of the Sun". Even their flag depicting a red ball on a white background symbolizes the Sun. Their legend of the Sun goddess Ama-terasu traces the Japanese ancestry and tells how the Japanese islands were formed. 
 
Maui is the principal deity in Polynesian culture and takes on a variety of roles in the folk lore of these Pacific people. Maui is credited with creating the islands and of snaring the sun in New Zealand Maori legends. While two Sun Gods are mentioned in Tongan legends - Maui Fusi-Fonua and Tangoloa. 
 
The Roman Sun god Apollo was borrowed very early on from the Greeks. The Romans believed in him as the god of light, music, and as a healer.
The Sumerians (c 3000 BC to 1400 BC) are arguably the very first sun worshipers.
In their primitive culture every divinity (god) is imagined as a celestial being.
Within their culture there existed two triads of gods, the first were considered great gods while the second triad, the triad of Planetary gods included the Sun god named Utu. Utu was not considered to be a great god. The other two gods of the Planetary triad were named Nanna - Suen (the moon) and Inanna (Venus). This however is only the beginning of Sun worship.




I will post the first story about this day and Stonehenge last, first from a Pagan site it says what you may want to know.

Litha: Summer Solstice - 21st/22nd June



The Fire Festival of Litha

Midsummer or the Summer Solstice is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun God. Because this Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, fire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and immediately felt element of transformation. It can burn, consume, cook, shed light or purify and balefires still figure prominently at modern Midsummer rites.

Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualised manner and from time immemorial people have acknowledged the rising of the sun on this day. At Stonehenge, the heelstone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from the centre of the stone circle.

In ancient times, the Summer Solstice was a fire-festival of great importance when the burning of balefires ritually strengthened the sun. It was often marked with torchlight processions, by flaming tar barrels or by wheels bound with straw, which were set alight and rolled down steep hillsides. The Norse especially loved lengthy processions and would gather together their animals, families and lighted torches and parade through the countryside to the celebration site.

The use of fires, as well as providing magical aid to the sun, were also used to drive out evil and to bring fertility and prosperity to men, crops and herds. Blazing gorse or furze was carried around cattle to prevent disease and misfortune; while people would dance around the balefires or leap through the flames as a purifying or strengthening rite. The Celts would light balefires all over their lands from sunset the night before Midsummer until sunset the next day. Around these flames the festivities would take place.

In Cornwall up to the mid 18th century the number and appearance of fires seen from any given point was used as a form of divination and used to read the future.

Astronomically, it is the longest day of the year, representing the God at full power. Although the hottest days of the summer still lie ahead, from this point onward we enter the waning year, and each day the Sun will recede from the skies a little earlier, until Yule, when the days begin to become longer again.

Agriculturally, the crops are in full growth. They are reaching the pinnacles of maturity and coming closer to the harvest time. Most wild herbs are fully mature by Midsummer and this is the traditional time for gathering magickal and medicinal plants to dry and store for winter use. In Wales, Midsummer is called Gathering Day in honour of this practice.

Lithia - Summer SolsticeMagical Aspects

Since this sabbat revolves around the sun, a candle should be lit for the entire day, especially if it is cloudy or raining. The fire represents the sun and is a constant daily reminder of the power of the God. Rituals should be performed at noon, when the sun is highest in the sky. The best rituals to perform on Midsummer are those dealing with masculine issues, masculine energies, or issues dealing with solar influence.

Many pagans choose to make protective amulets, in the week before the Sabbat, which are later empowered over the Midsummer balefire. Some witches choose to bury their protective amulets each Midsummer’s eve and construct new ones. Rue, rowan and basil, tied together in a white or gold cloth, is a good protective trio that can be carried in your pocket year round.

Midsummer is the time to formalize any relationship and couples that have been together a year and a day since the previous Beltane can make their marriage final. This Sabbat is also an excellent time to re-new wedding vows.

Midsummer Incense

This is how the devil stole from the creator God Jehovah, The incarnate WORD Jesus, The holy Spirit, hovered over the waters Gen ch 1. Herbs are looked at by many, even many Christians as Pagan, they used herb medicine, medicine was herbs.
I was going to explain what each herb does, another time another website.
God created herbs, he created the SUN, Moon, everything, fools they have become in the idol worship this day.
It is 8am I have yet to look at the world news, I have not been doing news for a while now, but this......I will keep my eyes open for a event, today or 22nd, 24 hour watch. Not in fear, be prudent and do not be in crowded places on evil days, ye Jesus is with you, rebuke it, but I have been to Pagan and satanic places in my ministry and its dark, real, evil, and to hell with the devil as the old band stryper wrote.

Sage, mint, basil, Saint John's Wort, sunflower, mistletoe (specifically the berries which represent semen), oak, rowan, and fir.



THE summer solstice 2017 falls today, with thousands flocking to Stonehenge to celebrate the longest day of the year.

Around 13,000 people descended on Stonehenge this morning to celebrate the summer solstice, an increase of around 1,000 on last year’s event.

English Heritage opens Stonehenge for the solstice every year, giving the public a rare chance to see it up close.

Following the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester, armed police were at the scene and additional security measures were put in place.

Wiltshire Police said the event was “a successful policing operation”, with just seven “mostly drug-related” arrests”.

Many who attended were dressed in druid robes or wore floral garlands to welcome the first day of summer at the ancient stone monument.

Stonehenge is believed to have been used as a religious site for more than 4,000 years, and has become a popular place for Pagan worshippers since the turn of the 20th century.

But what is the summer solstice, and why do people flock to Stonehenge for it?

What is the summer solstice?

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and is one of four dates which determines the astrological seasons.

It represents the time at which the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky, and occurs when the Earth’s axis tilts most towards the Sun and is directly above the Tropic of Cancer.

For astrologists, the summer solstice marks the beginning of summer. The winter solstice announces the start of winter, with equinoxes in March and September heralding the start of Spring and Autumn. Meteorologists use a different system based on the calendar year.

This year the summer solstice falls on June 21, but it can fall as early as June 20 or as late as June 22.

Britain will enjoy 16 hours and 38 minutes of daylight today. The Sun rose this morning at 4.43am and will set at 9.31pm.

Today’s summer solstice is set to be the hottest on record, with temperatures forecast to hit 34C.

The previous high if 31.7C was set in 1936.

However today also marks the start of days becoming shorter as the Earth begins tilting away from the Sun.

Luckily, the change will not be noticeable for a while, with the shortest day of the year – the winter solstice – not falling until Thursday December 21.

In the southern hemisphere the solstices are reversed.

Today is the winter solstice in countries such as Australia and New Zealand, with the summer solstice falling in December.

WHEN IS THE SUMMER SOLSTICE?

Google has created a special Doodle to mark the summer solstice 2017.

An adorable animation sees a bluebird knocking open a trap door so that an underground critter can enjoy the Sun’s warmth.
Why did people celebrate the summer solstice?

The summer solstice is linked with a number of religious and cultural festivals, but is commonly associated with the Pagan Midsummer.

Pagans used the solstice as a marker for planting and harvesting crops, and would celebrate the union of the God and Goddess.

One the night before the solstice, Midsummer’s Eve, bonfires would be lit to protect against evil spirits which were thought to roam freely when the Sun was turning southward.

Christians celebrate the new season a few days later on St John’s Day (June 24), and light bonfires the night before (St John’s Eve).

Why do people celebrate the summer solstice at Stonehenge?

Stonehenge has been a place of pagan worship for thousands of years and is aligned with the winter and summer solstices.

This morning thousands of people travelled to the ancient monument in Avebury, Wiltshire to watch the sunrise, which aligned with the central Heel Stone.

On the winter solstice, the sunset aligns with Stonehenge.

Beloved, greater is He in you than he that is in the world...amen 1jn
