What we were not taught in school were the truly significant facts regarding the true nature of the Statue. French sculptor, Frederic Bartholdi, designed the Statue of Liberty.
The idea for creating a Statue of Liberty and freedom was first proposed by another Frenchman by the name of Edward Abdoulaye. Abdoulaye, a French Freemason proposed the idea of a giant statue replicating a goddess that the Masonic movement idolized.
Abdoulaye proceeded to raise the financial support and commission Bartholdi to provide the sculpture of this goddess of illumination from ancient times. Abdoulaye and his fellow Freemason, sculptor Bartholdi referred to her as “Liberal” but she was also an early adoption by Romans of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar.
We’ll need to follow the research on the goddess connections to fully understand this statue’s meaning. She was called the matron goddess of prostitution because she promoted sexual freedom.
She was depicted on some Roman coins as wearing a freedom cap and having a wreath along with a spear or sometimes a sword. We know of Liberal being referred to as the Mother of Harlots by the famous Roman historian (and senator) Cicero’s writings.
Upon further investigation we find that the Greeks had acquired knowledge of this being from previous empires in the Middle East and Egypt. This goddess was called Ashworth in Hebrew and in the Old Testament’s Greek version (the Septuagint).
We know this transformation in part due to the written texts found by archaeologists plus from studying the character traits and descriptions. Later the Romans referred to her in the Latin, initially as Liberal and later than Venus when they accepted more than just the Liberty doctrines.
We can see that the lineage of the Greek and Roman goddess of the planet Venus goes all the way back to ancient Babylon of around 3,000 BC. Apparently the Greeks (and later the Romans) chose to initially honor only one portion of Ishtar’s character and doctrines that appealed to them in those very early years before they established empires.
Ishtar’s doctrine of personal freedom was what really impressed both the Greeks and the Romans. As time passed, the succeeding generations of Greeks found the other Ishtar doctrines to be appealing and incorporated her into their pantheon of deities as Astarte or Aphrodite.
Of course, this entailed paying the priestess or priest and thus it was officially sanctioned and therefore “holy” prostitution. Harlots had been deemed to be social outcasts, so she was also referred to as the Mother of exiles.
She was first and foremost endeared to the hearts and minds of Babylonians because of her primary dedication to Freedom and Liberty. Ishtar introduced the concept of removal of sins by the practice of the sinner engaging in a “holy” rite of sexual relations with a priestess or priest.
This action would involve the payment of money to the priestess or priest as part of the cleansing process. Zechariah Sit chin, in his book “Divine Encounters” describes another significant role for Ishtar in Babylonia/Summer.
Now, Sit chin is one of only a handful of scholars who has been able to learn and translate the cuneiform tablet writings of the Sumerians/Babylonians. He has written numerous books detailing various aspects of the culture and writings of Summer.
In his book “Divine Encounters” he describes a significant role that Ishtar held for the Sumerians. On pages 174 through 176 he describes the annual ritual in which the King of Summer must come to the special chamber temple of Ishtar to engage in sexual relations with her for one night of passion.
This process was to continue until Ishtar accepted a candidate who met with her satisfaction. If the king or candidate found acceptance he would appear the following morning to the expectant crowds outside the temple palace to show that he had gained the favor of the goddess to rule for one more year.
Such acceptance also meant that the nation would have a good year of agricultural harvests. This seems like a dichotomy of sorts, but Ishtar was a daughter of the original founding god of Babylon known as “And” who was the ruler of the planet called “Bird.” Bird was an additional planet in our solar system that circled the earth every 3,600 years, according to the royal records of Babylon.
Sit chin has been roundly ridiculed by scientists for proposing that this notion of Bird could actually exist. However, on June 30, 1999, a scientist, David Stevenson from California Institute of Technology published a paper stating that “interstellar planets” (which is what a “Bird” would be called) is certainly a theoretical possibility and should not be dismissed.
In the CNN/Reuters News story the text mentions that Stevenson is not alone and that others have theorized that there may be others planets roaming interstellar space that came from our solar system. He served in the original investigative group attempting to repair the damaged scrolls.
In other words, in the prophecies, it is referring to Ishtar approving the rule of the kings because they have pleased her and did as she commanded. In return, the kings of course swear allegiance to Ishtar and provide sacrifices for her.
Super-power Babylon acts just like an Ishtar and engages in prostitution with the rest of the nations. See Revelation 18:1-24 and note how the overall theme revolves around money and material things.
The chief promoter and fundraiser for the project was Edward Laboulaye, and he collaborated with the sculptor Frederic Bartholdi to develop a statue of Masonic enlightenment. The idea was that this sun god’s occult illumination could be focused by each of the 7 spikes of the crown.
Each spike would flash this occult enlightenment to each of the 7 “horas” or large landmasses of the world. In other words, the spike would flash occult enlightenment to a continent on planet earth.
A common misconception is that the tablets represent the 10 Commandments that God gave to Moses. Hence, the tablets being held by the Statue of Liberty carry that general meaning.
In the original planning, the Statue of Liberty was designed in the initial stages to be in color. It became obvious that for reasons of monetary purposes the statue must be made from copper.
This item was originally designed to be a golden cup filled with the wine of freedom. However, before completion and shipping of the entire statue, the New York Port authorities asked if there could be some sort of modification to allow for an eternal flame or light to be designed into the statue so that ships could use her as a nighttime navigational aid.
Bartholdi consented to make modifications to the basic cup design to allow for a natural gas flame to be utilized. The torch we see today is actually the same type of cup design used in ancient times for drinking wine.
The golden aspect itself was altered again to conform to the needs of the natural gas flame. “Mother of Exiles” is a key term in the poem by Emma Lazarus.
Ishtar's worship is the very first instance of prostitution in human history, and it was deemed “holy!” Now, this may indeed just be an interesting coincidence but remember Revelation 17:5 where the woman called Mystery Babylon is referred to as the “Mother of Harlots.” We say this because we know that the Statue of Liberty is actually the artist/sculpture’s vision of Ishtar, the goddess of Babylon.
The series follows a season with the LibertyCityWarriors, a youth football program founded by an unlikely mentor: Luther Campbell, better known as “Uncle Luke” from the 2 Live Crew. Before Moonlight shook the Oscars, Liberality was best known for some of the biggest names in football, including Devon ta Freeman, Antonio Brown, Duke Johnson and Teddy Bridgewater.
