Two Faced Janus | Keeper of Portals and Passages | Arch Rivalry

 

Sigmund-Freud

Inspired by Daniel Valles’ insightful end times update and symbolic decoding of yesterday’s Google Doodle, I noticed this additional prophetic symbol, a two faced character obscured behind a fourfold archway beneath the icy waters. A pattern of a two faced world elite plotting ritual sacrifices to manipulate time and events, then and now surfaced.

 

 

Depicted is a so-called ‘Janus Head’, the variant cleaved to Sigmund Freud on the Google Doodle resembling a demonic, hybrid character’s profile like Iapetus from the movie Prometheus, symbols will examine for underlying meaning and relevance related end times prophetic events.

Janus keeper of past and future | gates and passages | beginnings and endings | change and time 

In ancient Roman religion and myth, Janus is the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, doorways, passages, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past. It is conventionally thought that the month of January is named after him, but according to ancient Roman farmers’ almanacs Juno was the tutelary deity of the month. In Roman religion Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace as well. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and in his association with Portunus, a similar harbor and gateway god, he was concerned with traveling, trading and shipping. Put this element in your hip pocket.

Interpretations concerning the god’s fundamental nature either limit it to this general function or emphasize a concrete or particular aspect of it (identifying him with lightthe sun, the moon, time, movement, the year calendar, doorways, bridges etc.) or else see in the god a sort of cosmological principle. In the pocket as well.

As a god of motion, Janus looks after passages, causes actions to start and presides over all beginnings. Since movement and change are interconnected, he has a double nature, symbolized in his two headed image. He has under his tutelage the stepping in and out of the door of homes. This extends to the gates of the city, including the cultic gate of the Argiletum, from which he protects Rome against the Sabines, a neighboring people. The so-called Triumphal Arch of Janus was not actually dedicated him; it is the only surviving ancient four gated arch way in Rome.

To Romans, Janus is at the origin of time as the guardian of the gates of heaven: Jupiter himself can move forth and back because of Janus’s working. As such he is in fact contending for the position and identity of Jesus. In Roman thought he presides over the concrete and abstract beginnings of the world, such as religion and the gods themselves, he too holds the access to heaven and to other gods: this is the reason why men had to invoke him first, regardless of the god they want to pray or placate. He is the initiator of human life and financial enterprises: according to myth he was the first to mint coins. Taking his lordship over travel, trade and shipping out of our hip pocket, these characteristics connect him to the current great power twin cities of New York and London which, through their inner city and virtual financial dealings, lord over worldwide finance and economics.

Janus symbolized change and transitions such as the progress of future to past, from one condition to another, from one vision to another, and young people’s growth to adulthood. He represented time, because he could see into the past with one face and into the future with the other. Hence, Janus was worshipped at the beginnings of the harvest and planting times, as well as at marriages, deaths and other beginnings and ending life events. These aspects also connect him to the end times we’re in.

Janus and Jana (also referred to as Diana) were a pair of divinities, worshipped as Apollo or twofold manifestations of the sun/Sol god and moon/Luna goddess deities.

Location matters

Besides being part of a city’s geo-strategic protection against invaders, city gates were also key places of sociopolitical activity in ancient times. It was at the city gates that important business transactions were made, court was convened and public announcements were heralded. Accordingly, it is natural that the Bible frequently speaks of “sitting in the gate” or of particular activities that took place at the gate. In Proverbs 1, wisdom is personified: “At the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech” (verse 21). To spread her words to the maximum number of people, Wisdom took to the gates. 

Days of Lot | Ruth | Esther

The first mention of a city gate is found in Genesis 19:1. It was at the gate of Sodom that Abraham’s nephew, Lot, greeted the angelic visitors to his city. Lot was there with other leading men of the city, either discussing the day’s issues or engaging in important civic business.

Another important example is found in the book of Ruth, a type of the Lord’s bride. In Ruth 4:1-11, Boaz officially claimed the position of kinsman-redeemer by meeting with the city elders at the gate of Bethlehem. There, the legal matters related to his marriage to and redemption of Ruth were settled.

The city gate was important in other ancient cultures as well. The Book of Esther 2:5-8 records that some of the king’s servants plotted at the king’s gate to murder him. Mordecai, a leading Jew in Persia, heard the plot and reported it to Esther, another type of the Lord’s bride, who gave the news to the king (Esther 2:19-23). The Persian court officials were identified as being “at the king’s gate” (3:3). To control the gates of one’s enemies was to conquer their city. Part of Abraham’s blessing from the Lord was the promise that “your offspring shall possess the gate of his enemies” (Genesis 22:17).

When Jesus promised to build His church, He said, “…the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). An understanding of the biblical implications of “gates” helps us to gasp and heed Jesus’ words. Since a gate was a place where rulers met and counsel was given, Jesus was saying that all the evil plans of Satan himself would never defeat His church.

In these end times, now nearing the apex of spiritual conflict, we are fully aware that not only our Lord and savior is at the proverbial gates, we discern that the Adversary and his disciples are positioned there firmly as well, forecasting and prematurely celebrating their soon unleashing and being unrestrained by our departure in the form of elaborate, satanically inspired events, celebrations and even repositioning ancient idol triumph arches and architectural projections at strategic spiritual and geopolitical locations.

Forecasting 

In Roman wartime the gates of the Janus were opened as mentioned, and in its interior sacrifices rituals were held, to forecast the outcome of military deeds. In like fashion our current day worldwide elite is forecasting end time events by means of their ritual sacrifices involving ancients arches and spiritual gateways as well. Like Janus originally regulated the crossing of the sacred Roman river through the pons sublicius, the earliest known bridge of ancient Rome, our global elite both regulate and use our waterways and bridges to further their dark causes.

As the protector of doors, gates and roadways in general, signified in his key and staff, they key was a sign that the traveller had come to a harbor or ford for peaceful exchange. In a similar fashion Roman brides were called to oil the posts of the door of their new homes with wolf fat at arrival, a rite of passage darkly mirroring Biblical passover rites, bridal preparation and oil anointments.

Raptio | raptae of the Sabines

In the early history of Rome, shortly after its founding by Romulus and his mostly male followers a prophetically significant event took place. As there was a shortage of women, the Romans sought wives in order to establish families and in this context negotiated unsuccessfully with the Sabines, who populated the surrounding area. The Sabines feared the emergence of a rival society and refused to allow their women to marry the Romans. Consequently, the Romans planned to abduct Sabine women during a festival of Neptune Equester. They planned and announced a marvelous festival to attract people from all nearby towns. According to historians, many people from Rome’s neighboring towns attended, including the Sabines. At the festival, Romulus gave a signal, at which the Romans grabbed the Sabine women and fought off the Sabine men.  Seduced by charm and festive ‘bread and circus’ the indignant abductees were soon implored by Romulus to accept Roman husbands under false pretenses.

The English word rape is a conventional translation of the Latin raptio, which in this context means “abduction” rather than its prevalent modern meaning in English language of sexual violation. Logically, the word rapture or sudden taking/departure within the context of the sexually deviance know to Noah and Lot comes to mind as well. Historians claim that no direct sexual assault took place, albeit the fuller evidence, when compared with the later history, suggests a seduction based on promises by the Romans (promises which were inadequate, in any event) and then betrayal of those promises.

The Sabines themselves finally declared war, led into battle by their king, Titus Tatius. Tatius almost succeeded in capturing Rome, thanks to the treason of Tarpeia, daughter of Spurius Tarpeius, governor of the citadel on the Capitoline Hill. Her story reads almost like that of Rahab in the battle of Jericho, though not moved by faith but rather by material gain, her fate was less fortunate.

Tarpeia | Rahab

Tarpeia opened the city gates for the Sabines in return for “what they bore on their arms”, thinking she would receive their golden bracelets. Instead, the Sabines crushed her to death with their shields, and her body was thrown from a rock known ever since by her name, the Tarpeian Rock. The Romans attacked the Sabines, who now held the citadel. The Roman line gave way and they retreated to the gate of the Palatium.

At this stand-off point, however, the Sabine women intervened. They threw themselves amid the flying weapons, and making a rush across, to separate the incensed armies and calm their fury; imploring their fathers on the one side, their husbands on the other, that as fathers-in-law and sons-in-law they would not contaminate each other with impious blood, nor stain their offspring with parricide, the one their grandchildren, the other their children. Like Esther did before her King on behalf of the Jewish people, the Sabines put their own lives on the line rather than becoming either widows, brother- or fatherless.

They battle came to an end, and the Sabines agreed to unite in one nation with the Romans. Titus Tatius jointly ruled with Romulus until Tatius’s death five years later. Grace and mercy triumphed temporarily.

As in ancient times at the war time closed gates, opposing geopolitical forces are clearly discernible now, wars and rumors of war abound. In these final hours of grace and mercy the age old conflict between good and evil may manifest in different ways, the driving spiritual forces behind them are of old and best countered with the same faith, wisdom, love and courage the Bible lays out for us.

Janus/Jana | Shiva/Kali | Osirus/Isis | Dancing with the stars

Like Janus and Jana in Roman times, Egyptian and Hindu gods and goddesses of destruction are being re-branded globally and positioned firmly at multiple prominent strongholds of global geopolitics, finance, religious might as well as at CERN’s cathedral of scientism with cosmic and earthly aspirations to star at the dance of destruction and creation,  blatantly attempting to usurp the Lord’s authority, bend, blend and trespass His divine boundaries.

 

Forecasting | Casting of Lots

These videos illustrate how the elite historically and nowadays use ‘forecasting’ and ritual blood sacrifices, scaled up by demonic high tech weaponry, plotted and satanically prayed upon ‘under the arches/gateways’, to manipulate time and events and facilitate demonic entry  and  manifestation. Their tactics serve as an antitype to the Biblical casting of lots.

 
The bride of Christ, in addition to being spiritually armed and ready for her Lord and helping others joining rank, may console herself. Her Lord is nearing the gates of her house. As King David, a prototype of our Lord, stood before his troops to give instructions from the city gate (2 Samuel 18:1-5) our Lord will fulfill many of David’s patterns. After his son Absalom died, David mourned and retrieved but eventually returned to the city gate along with his people (2 Samuel 19:1-8). The king’s re-appearance at the gate signaled that the people’s mourning was over, and the king was once again attending to the business of governing.

Soon and very soon.

Blessings! Sabine
