Ancient Christian Texts:

Demons Built the


Jerusalem
Temple!
The temple of Jerusalem was built with the help of
Solomons demons. Many ancient traditions assert that
Solomon was heavily involved with the demonic realm, and
that the integrity of Jerusalem was compromised as a result.
In the words of one ancient Christian tradition,
Solomon, whom David fathered by adultery, built
Jerusalem with the help of demons which gave him
power. When construction was complete, he kept the
demons in the temple. He locked them up in seven jars
and left them there in the jars for a long time. When
the Romans came to Jerusalem, they found the jars, and
straightway the demons escaped their jar prisons. Then
the jars became pure. Nowadays, the demons influence
ignorant people, and they are still in the world but
these things are mysteries.[1]

GENESIS
CREATION
STORY IS A
FORGERY

Ancient lore says the Jerusalem temple


(above) was built with the help of demons.
The Genesis Creation Story was written by
heretic priests of that temple.

Is this true? Was the temple at Jerusalem built by demons?


And did these demons continue to live in the temple after it
was built? The tradition is actually a lot older than this text.
An earlier text called The Testament of Solomon includes a
passage with a command allegedly given by the arch-angel
Michael to Solomon saying,
You must put all the demons, both female and male, in
prison, and you must build Jerusalem with their help.
[2]

Ancient Christians believed that some parts of


the Bible were written by God and other parts
of the Bible were written by Satan the Devil.

The text continues, describing all the various demons who


helped build the Jerusalem temple. Many are quite hideous

and vulgar. Josephus adds that Solomon had a special way


of controlling the demons by means of a ring, which he
placed in the nostrils of those who were possessed.[3]
Solomon could direct demons in this fashion.
Mohamed too, in the Qur'an, indicated that there was
black magic associated with Solomon's time, although he
attempted to exonerate Solomon himself, because he mistook
Solomon for a Prophet.

The blasphemy did not come from Solomon, but from


the evil ones who taught the Babylonian witchcraft that
came down with Harut and Marut.[4]

In his commentary on this verse, Islamic theologian Abdullah


Yusaf Ali identifies Harut and Marut as angels who came
down from heaven and were tempted.[5] This ties together
with Enoch, which also states that the lustful angels taught
witchcraft and sorcery to humans.[6] These angels had
sexual intercourse with humans and animals, and thus they
caused evolution to happen.
Other texts also record the legend in these words:

Solomon was a joke because he thought he was the


Messiah. He was puffed up by the six.[7]

Solomon built the temple with demons.[8]


The demiurge was troubled and asked 'How powerful is
the Man who is above us?' The third kingdom
proclaims he was born of a virgin Solomon dispatched
an army of demons to capture the virgin.[9]

Like the dragon of Revelation who chases the child and the
woman,[10] Solomon is accused of trying to capture the
virgin mother in order to destroy the Christ child.
Why was there a tradition that the Jerusalem temple was
the residence of demons? There is actually a very good
reason, and it is based on mainstream scholarship.
Animal sacrifice was practiced in the ancient Hebrew
faith, but not in today's Jewish and Christian faiths? Why?
The answer is found in the Priestly text, which Jews and
Christians have unfortunately and unwittingly inherited in
their Bible. The Priestly text is a late forgery that was
erroneously added to the Bible; it contains the unscientific

Genesis 1 creation myth. The Priestly text commands that


sacrifices should only be performed in the place where God
resides, at the altar of his tabernacle, which is assumed to be
the temple of Jerusalem, since that is where the tabernacle
has resided since the days of Solomon.[11] The Priestly
command to sacrifice at only one central location is as
follows:
Any Israelite who kills a cow, lamb, or goat in the camp
or outside the camp, and fails to bring it to the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it to
Yahweh, in the tabernacle of Yahweh, blood will be
upon that person. They have shed blood, and they shall
be cut off from their people.[12]

Deuteronomy is even more poignant:


Take care not to burn your sacrifices in every location
you see, but in the place Yahweh chooses within one of
your tribes, there you must bring all your sacrifices.[13]

Today, an Islamic shrine sits on the spot where the ancient


tabernacle of Jerusalem used to sit. Consequently, no
sacrifices are performed.

Sacrifice Outside Jerusalem


Yet virtually every "righteous" individual who performed
animal sacrifices in the Old Testament directly violated this
regulation. Abraham sacrificed everywhere but in
Jerusalem. He built altars at Shechem, Bethel, and Hebron,
and these altars were used for animal sacrifice.[14] As
Abraham journeyed south, he passed right over Jerusalem,
not even stopping there. His son Isaac was no different.
Isaac built an altar at Beer-Sheba, but not at Jerusalem.[15]
Before them, Noah built an altar and sacrificed animals
somewhere in Mesopotamia.[16] Moses asked Pharaoh to
"let my people go" so that they could sacrifice animals out in
the middle of the Egyptian desert.[17] None of these altars
were even close to the so-called "holy city" of Jerusalem.
Clearly, the idea that animal sacrifice can only occur in
Jerusalem is a false doctrine of the priests, and is easily
disproved by the earlier texts of the Bible.
Whats more, the Priestly text never mentions any of these
sacrifices. It omits the story of how Noah sacrificed after the
Flood, of how Abraham and Isaac sacrificed at random
locations in Canaan, and of how Moses attempted to sacrifice
in the sands of Egypt. These omissions were not accidental.

The Priestly text intentionally omitted these for the purpose


of deceiving people into believing they had to sacrifice only in
Jerusalem. They did this because they depended upon the
revenue generated when all tithes and sacrifices came to
Jerusalem, where they were located. To allow the people to
sacrifice elsewhere was simply bad business. The almighty
dollar is the reason why Jerusalem became the city of the
Almighty. Follow the money. Just like modern corporations
which violate anti-trust laws, the Jerusalem temple priests
wanted to monopolize the market for religion by destroying
all competition. To do this, they invented forgeries and
distorted Israel's true history, telling everyone they must pay
tithes and sacrifices to their Jerusalem temple.
In the early times, for the first six centuries after the
Hebrews entered the Promised Land, the Hebrews continued
to sacrifice anywhere they wanted, and the God of Israel was
perfectly satisfied with this arrangement. The Hebrews set
up altars on the mountain tops, which they called high
places. Jerusalem had no special status. Jerusalem was just
one of many high places. For example, David sacrificed in
his hometown of Bethlehem, a rather insignificant town.[18]
Solomon sacrificed animals to Yahweh on high places outside
Jerusalem, and Yahweh rewarded him for it. Solomon also
sacrificed animals in Jerusalem, but Solomon is not said to
have received any reward for sacrificing in Jerusalem.[19]
The Prophet Samuel also sacrificed on the high places, and so
did Saul. God rewarded their sacrifices with the gift of
prophecy.[20] Such was the disposition of the God of Israel,
that he rewarded people for sacrificing outside the so-called
"holy city" of Jerusalem. If people got a sudden urge to eat
meat or make a sacrifice, makeshift altars were created on
the spot.[21] No special location or temple was required.
Even after the temple at Jerusalem was well established,
Gods Prophets continued to sacrifice outside of Jerusalem.
For example, Elijah, who prophesied a century after the
Jerusalem temple was up and running, sacrificed on Mount
Carmel, and God confirmed that Elijah was justified in doing
so by consuming the sacrifice with fire.[22] Likewise
Samsons parents. Moreover, a large number of Yahwehworshipping kings throughout Judahs history had a
favorable policy toward the high places outside of Jerusalem,
including Azariah, Amaziah, Jehoash, Jehoshaphat, and Asa.
[23] All of these kings lived after the Jerusalem temple was
already established, and all of them recognized that
sacrificial altars outside of Jerusalem had a right to exist.
They did not destroy the high places. These kings were more
ancient and thus closer in time to Moses than the Priestly
text, and so their opinions hold preeminence.

The Corruption of the Elohist Torah


As long as the Hebrews sacrificed to Yahweh on the high

places, Yahweh continued to bless them with freedom and


prosperity in the Promised Land. Evidently, God was quite
happy with the high places.
Then, one day, an eight-year old boy named Josiah
ascended to the throne, and his priests convinced him to tear
down all the high places and leave only Jerusalem.[24] It
appears the boy king was easily manipulated by the
priesthood, for these priests supposedly "found" a holy book
that had been missing from the Bible for hundreds years,[25]
yet scholars believe they largely invented it. The book was
Deuteronomy, which, like the Priestly text, commands the
Israelites to sacrifice at only one central location.[26] This
explains why Josiah tore down the high places. The name
"Deuteronomy" means "second giving of the Law," and it is
likely that it was the second edition of the Elohist Torah. The
original Elohist Torah was not compatible with the Priestly
text; therefore, it was reworked into Deuteronomy. This can
be deduced from who "found" Deuteronomy in the temple
namely Hilkiah, who was related both to Abiathar's
priesthood at Anathoth and also to Zadok's priesthood at
Jerusalem.[27] Insofar as Hilkiah was the child of both
traditions, he sought a merger of the two, and thus we have
the book of Deuteronomy, which merges Elohist and Priestly
doctrines. This is further substantiated by a tradition that
Ezra omitted part of the Elohist Torah, and justified this
omission by referencing Deuteronomy in its place.[28]
The priests loved Josiah, so they formulated a false
prophecy that the young king would live long and die
peacefully. Yet, in actual fact, Josiah would later die in
battle at a young age.[29] Obviously, God wasnt filling the
mouths of the Jerusalem priests with prophecy! Rather,
these were the false prophets Jeremiah so frequently
mentions. Josiahs religious reformation lasted exactly
thirteen years.[30] By the end of those thirteen years, Josiah
lay slain, Judahs armies were defeated, and the Hebrew
nation had lost its ability to sustain itself. The once lofty
kingdom of David was reduced to a puppet state. Over the
next twenty years, the Hebrew kings played political stunts
with their Babylonian overlords, until finally, Babylon
utterly destroyed them in the siege of Jerusalem. The temple
was destroyed and Jerusalem was burned to the ground. The
lucky survivors were exiled to Babylon, where they remained
for 70 years.
Thus, within a generation of Josiahs religious reforms,
the Hebrew nation went from freedom to slavery. If one
chooses to view history theologically, then one should revise
the book of Kings in this light.
Why did Yahweh abandon his chosen people in the middle
of the greatest religious reformation of they had ever
accomplished? Why did God punish Israel at a time when
they were obeying Torah Law better than they ever had in
the past? The answer, I believe, resides in the fact that the

theology of Kings is wrong. That is to say, Josiah was not a


great reformer, but was rather a heretic, and Yahweh
punished Israel with the Babylonian exile because of his
heresy. To the king of Assyria, this was obvious, as he says,
You tell me that you trust in your God Yahweh. But
isn't this the same God whose altars Hezekiah has
dismantled, telling you to worship only at the altar in
Jerusalem?[31]

The logic of the king of Assyria was simple: Hezekiah tore


down Yahweh's altars on the high places. Therefore,
Yahweh punished Hezekiah as the Bible tells us and
archaeology confirms. Hezekiah was besieged in Jerusalem
and kept locked up like a caged bird, and he was forced to
loot the temple and give its treasure to Assyria. The
Assyrians even claimed Yahweh had commanded them to
invade.[32] The next king to remove the high places was
Josiah, and he was slaughtered at Megiddo, whereupon
Israel effectively lost its sovereignty.[33]
This theological interpretation, which reduces Jerusalem
and its temple to heresy, is perfectly compatible with Jesus
and the New Testament, as Jesus says, "Believe me, the hour
is coming when you wont worship the Father on this
mountain nor in Jerusalem."[34] Likewise Saint Paul, "The
Lord of heaven and earth doesnt live in temples made by
hands."[35] Also, the gospels frequently state that Jesus
worshipped on mountain tops, an action analogous to early
Hebrew worship on the high places. Moreover, Josephus
informs us that the Essenes refused to sacrifice at the
Jerusalem temple.[36] Apparently, components of the
original Hebrew faith had survived in the Essene sect, but
had been forgotten by other Jewish sects. Jesus resurrected
the true Hebrew religion from corruption.

Recap
The foregoing arguments have shown that the six-day
creation account in Genesis 1 comes from the Priestly text,
and that the Priestly text is a forgery. Moreover, Jesus
Christ rejected the Priestly text, as do scholars and ancient
critics. The people who wrote the Priestly text operated in a
temple that was the home of demons.
Yet for all this, there is still one more accusation that
can be brought forward against Genesis 1. The creation
account in Genesis 1 is the Whore of Babylon.
Return to this section's landing page: Genesis 1 is a forgery.
The creationist narrative in Genesis 1 is contradicted by

many ancient Christian texts. Instead of an Almighty


Creator God, ancient Christian texts espouse that the
universe is born from blind arrogance and stupidity. The
angels caused evolution to occur from species to species.
There are many gods, (or aliens?), and the Christian God is
just one among them. Satan the Devil writes scripture, and
thus the Bible was polluted with Genesis 1. Archaeology and
modern scholarship demonstrate that Genesis is indeed
corrupted. Cavemen walk with Adam and Eve. Esoteric
prophecies reveal the coming of Christ, and also reveal the
dark forces that govern the cosmos. Such are the ancient
Christian writings.
Science vindicates the truth of these ideas. Evolution often
happens too fast for Darwins theory. Gaps in the fossil
record indicate that some kind of unnatural force acts
together with natural selection. Astrobiology reveals that
intelligent life probably evolved long before us. The fossil
record reveals strange clues that aliens abducted species and
transported them across oceans, and that DNA from diverse
lineages was combined to spawn hybrid species. Evidently,
aliens influence evolution, and they are the gods of the
worlds religions.
This is not fiction. All these facts are thoroughly documented
in the links above.
