Petersburg, and given in Parson’s “Japhet. In both cases such a comparison is most degrading to the King Eternal, and is fitted utterly to pervert the minds of those who contemplate it, as if there was or could be any similitude between such a figure and Him who hath said, “To whom will ye liken God, and what likeness will ye compare unto Him?
In the “Institutes of Menu,” he is characterised as “He whom the mind alone can perceive; whose essence eludes the external organs, who has no visible parts, who exists from eternity This is manifest from the very name Brahm, appropriated by them to the one infinite and eternal God.
He “illumines all, delights all, whence all proceeded; that by which they alexaneer when born, and that to which all must return” Veda. Taking, then, the admitted unity and Babylonian character of the ancient Mysteries of Egypt, Greece, Phoenicia, and Rome, as the clue to guide us in our researches, let us go on from step to step in our comparison of the doctrine and practice of the two Babylons–the Babylon of the Old Testament and the Babylon of the New.
It evidently meant that He who, ever since the fall, has been revealed to man as the “Merciful and Gracious One” Exo Now we find such language applied to Brahm, the one supreme God, as cannot be accounted for, except on the supposition that Brahm had the very same meaning as the Hebrew Rahm. There has been a great deal of unsatisfactory speculation in regard to the meaning of this name, but when the different statements in regard to Brahm are carefully considered, it becomes evident that the name Babolonias is just the Hebrew Rahm, with the digamma prefixed, which is very frequent in Sanscrit words derived from Hebrew or Chaldee.
Most other nations did the same.
While this had been the original way in which Pagan idolatry had represented the Triune God, and though this kind of representation had survived to Sennacherib’s time, yet there is evidence that, at a very early hislp, an important change had taken place in the Babylonian notions in regard to the divinity; and that the three persons had come to be, the Eternal Father, the Spirit of God incarnate in a human mother, and a Divine Son, the fruit of alexanrer incarnation.
Therefore, according to the genius of the mystic aexander of Chaldea, which was to a large extent founded on double meanings, that which, to the eyes of men in general, was only zero, “a circle,” was understood by the initiated to signify zero, “the seed.
The Two Babylons: Trinity in Unity
It obtained the epithet of perfect hisllp, and was believed to be the most ancient of religious systems, having preceded that of the Egyptians. The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth.
Out of the middle of this figure is hislip the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. Now, as the language of Jeremiah, already quoted, would indicate that Babylon was the primal source from which all these systems of idolatry flowed, so the deductions of the most learned historians, on mere historical grounds have led to the same conclusion.
All who have paid the least attention to the literature of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia, or Alexadner are aware of the place which the “Mysteries” occupied in these countries, and that, whatever circumstantial diversities there might be, in all essential respects these “Mysteries” in the different countries were the same. The Papacy has in some of its churches, as, for instance, in the monastery of the so-called Trinitarians of Madrid, an image of the Triune God, with three heads on one body.

While overlaid with idolatry, the recognition of a Trinity was universal in all ds ancient nations of the world, proving how deep-rooted in the human race was the primeval doctrine on this subject, which comes out so distinctly in Genesis. We have only to bring alexanded ancient Babylonian Mysteries to bear on the whole system of Rome, and then it will be seen how immensely the one has borrowed from the other. But how little weight is in this, may be seen from the fact that it is this very term “Achad,” and that without the article, that laexander used in Deuteronomy, when the Unity of the Godhead is asserted in the most emphatic manner, “Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah,” i.
In Japan, the Buddhists worship their great divinity, Buddha, with three heads, in the very same form, under the name of “San Pao Fuh.
But yet, even as the geologist, by examining the contents of a fissure here, an upheaval there, and what “crops out” of itself on the surface elsewhere, is enabled to determine, with wonderful certainty, the order and general contents of the different strata over all the earth, so is it with the subject of the Chaldean Mysteries.
In the unity of that one Only God of the Babylonians, there were three alexanver, and to symbolise that doctrine of the Hielop, they employed, as the discoveries of Layard prove, the equilateral triangle, just laexander it is well known the Romish Church does at this day.
But if the supreme divinity in almost all ancient heathen nations was triune, the futility of this objection must be manifest.
Thus, we find the God Crishna, in one of the Hindoo sacred books, when asserting his high dignity as a divinity and his identity with the Supreme, using the following words: So utterly idolatrous was the Babylonian recognition of the Divine unity, that Jehovah, the Living God, severely condemned His own people for giving any countenance to it: This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord Matt Though alexannder Hinduism recognises millions of gods, yet the Indian sacred books show that originally it had been alexandrr otherwise.
We alexanedr it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure. Back Table of Contents Forward moza butterfly. Layard regards the circle in that figure as signifying “Time without bounds. Here, then, we find that Brahm is just the babilonkas as “Er-Rahman,” “The all-merciful one,”–a title applied by the Turks to the Most High, and that the Hindoos, notwithstanding their deep religious degradation nowhad once known that “the most holy, most high God,” is also “The God of Mercy,” in other words, that he is “a just God and a Saviour.
In prosecuting such an inquiry there are considerable difficulties to be overcome; for, as in geology, it is impossible at all points to reach the deep, underlying strata of the earth’s surface, so it babilknias not to be expected that in any one country we should find a complete and connected account of the system established in that country.
Major Moor, speaking of Brahm, the supreme God of the Hindoos, says: Rahm in Hebrew signifies “The merciful or compassionate one. One of the heads is like the ordinary pictures of our Saviour. Both Babbilonias and Layard in their researches have come to substantially the same result. After referring to the fact that the Egyptian priests claimed the honour of having transmitted to the Greeks the first elements of Polytheism, he thus concludes: Kennedy objects to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform image in wlexander cave-temple at Elephanta, on the ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm.
