Dagon, The Sun Fish, and Holy Water

It's either I'm not a Christian or the Bible is not a Christian book. That was my first re-action after reading the Holy Bible for the nth times during my teen age years.  I found conflicting teaching from the religion I grew up with  to what I had been discovering inside the scriptures...
   Why was that? If the Bible is the basis of our faith, the guidelines in order to fulfill what God want for His children, then why the tenet of most Christian churches does not fit. 
   There must be something wrong. Obviously the Holy Bible was there long before these churches was founded. Did the forefathers of our churches change along the way? 

   This got me very interested and for many years since then a lot of question gnawed in my head. Why would a Religion that claims to obey GOD has so many opposition from God's own inspired Books?
  I also discover that many, if not all, of the practices and rituals from major religions of the world is contrary to the real word of God. 

   Dedication and sincere love for God the Father has always been the driving force to seek the truth. It was that simple and basic principle where I stand now. The truth and only the truth will set us free. To harden our hearts will only make us accept His word no matter what the cost should be our goals in life to be achieve. Jesus our Lord had died for these cause, to set us free. 

   Most of the misunderstanding among the various religions of the world didn't come from God. I realized that it was the inventions of men or the inserted traditions why there are conflicting beliefs today. 
Unless Yahweh builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless Yahweh watches over the city, the watchman guards it in vain. -- Psalm 127:1
    Man-made religions are basically a mixture of different pagan and heathen practices. Almost all of these religious practices, symbols, and traditions deals primarily to Sun worship and fertility rituals.   Each one is an adaptations of one religion to another...
   What is remarkable about these Pagan religions was that it was an  abominations unto God according to the Bible. You'll be surprise that there was nothing new, all of these malpractices had been written long ago...there is no way we can blame God that He didn't tell us these things. 
   Actually, before man invented the occult, He already forewarned us. It was already there in the history of the Bible.  

   Like for example the sprinkling of the so called holy water of the priest and lay minister. Did you now that  first Christians never do the sprinkling of water ritual? It's not that they don't want to but because God doesn't want them to. They were familiar with the ritual, they knew it was not a common practice, even to Judaic tradition because they know this was in honor to the chief god of the Philistine, and they knew that it was not a command from God to do...

The sprinkling of Holy Water?
  The blessing by water using a sprinkler was and is up to this day never changed to receive the curse of Dagon, the Fish-god of Canaan or Babylon and was also adopted by the Philistine. Today this is still performed with the same detail up to the vestment worn by Catholic Priest.

Now the lords of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice, for they said,   “Our god has given Samson our enemy into our hands.” -- Judges 16:23   

    Besides a brief mention during Samson's time we will discover on 1 Samuel chapter 5; a more graphic account about Dagon. To prove that God is the only one true God, an idol of Dagon was humiliated when the ark of God (the covenant) was place beside the image of Dagon inside the Philistine temple. 
    This happened after the Philistine won the war against the Israelite and as a war trophy they brought the ark of the covenant of the LORD inside Dagon's temple but what happened? 
   Then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the temple of Dagon and set it by Dagon. And when the people of Ashdod arose early in the morning, there was Dagon, fallen on its face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and set it in its place again. And when they arose early the next morning, there was Dagon, fallen on its face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. The head of Dagon and both the palms of its hands were broken off on the threshold; only Dagon’s torso was left of it. Therefore neither the priests of Dagon nor any who come into Dagon’s house tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day. (1 Samuel 5:1-5)

   But this is the god to whom the Vatican patterned their show of religiosity. So now you realized how those funny looking headgear came. It was no accident or borrowed because it will make them appear holier...they knew whom they worship, mind you...not Jesus. Because if they do they would have obeyed this command:

  Leviticus 18:3 You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.

   Why do you think God is very stern when it comes to religious tolerance? 
  “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditateon it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for theLord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -- Joshua 1:7-9

  As I mentioned on earlier blog  (read Jesus Crucified Again and Again) that they are nothing but Sun worship, this is what God said:

   This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the nations are terrified by them.-- Jeremiah 10:2

Dagon Worship?
A study by Timothy Youngblood

Copyright © The Master's Table
Dagon, god of fertility worshiped by the Philistines and throughout the ancient Middle East. His cult is known to have existed as early as 2500 BC, and a number of references to him are made in the Old Testament. The possible derivations of his name are numerous; from the Hebrew word for "grain"; from the Semitic word for "corn"; and from a Hebrew word for "fish." The last of these derivations gave rise to the common image of Dagon as a merman-half man, half fish. Dagon is also regarded as the legendary inventor of the plow.

   Ralph Edward Woodrow states in his book the Babylon Mystery Religion on page 75 and 76 that the expensive and highly decorated garments that the popes wear were patterned after those of the roman emperors. The historians have not let this fact go unnoticed, for indeed their testimony is that "the vestments of the clergy...were legacies from pagan Rome."
   The tiara crown that the popes wear-though decorated in different ways at different times-is identical in shape to that worn by the "gods" or angles that are shown on ancient pagan Assyrian tablets. It is similar to that seen on dagon, the fish god pictured below. Dagon was actually but a mystery form of the false Babylonian "savior." The name Dagon comes from dag (a word commonly translated "fish" in the Bible) and means "fish god." as we read above. (Source)
   Again let me encourage you, if you truly love God, read the Bible and discover the truth. 

Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 1Cor. 10:19,20
