Any song that reveals the power and glory of God? The song or the field of music or field of entertainment must glorify Him from there, right? That is what I heard once from Augie Gemora when I met him that you must glorify God though music, acoustics and others.
Gift in music
“God gave the Filipinos two gifts,” says Jesuit historian Horacio dela Costa, “The gift of faith and the gift of music.”
That could be the reason the Filipino entertainers have seen in the global scenes as early in the 1970’s where musicians and singers were sought after internationally.
Remember Lea Salonga as a young singer who hits the London Broadway with her superb performance in “Miss Saigon” than eventually hits the New York Broadway as well? How about Charise Pempengco who became popular through YouTube and hits Oprah’s show and gone internationally to the music industry? And the “4th Power”,a four-female Filipinas who hits Xfactor UK? Elen Miranda who sung the “Sunday Morning” in Xfactor Australia? Mary Ann Van der Horst wowed the audience in Xfactor Australia with her song entitled, “Hello”? Not to mention champion Marliza Punzalan who rendered the classic “Yesterday” in Xfactor Australia?
Apollo, how much do you know him?
Apollo, how much do you know him? I met Apollo four times – once here in the Philippines in 1969, once in Greece on 1985. And twice in 2017 in Turkey.
I met the first Apollo in July, 1969. I was probably Grade 4 or 5 when it was globally announced (unofficially) of no classes because the whole world will be watching the first ever space craft named Apollo 11. Apollo 11 was launched to the moon and Neil Armstrong, an American aerospace engineer was the first astronaut who walked in the moon. He popularized the saying, “"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” when he finally walked on the moon.
The second Apollo that I met was the Greek chief-god Apollo in Delphi, Greece in 1985. And in June 11-13, I met the Greek god Apollo in the ancient city of Pergamun and Heliopolis near rich ancient city of Laodicea of Asia Minor (Turkey). The Greek god of music Apollo is the son of Zeus. Apollo is also a healer like his son Asclepios in the modern Bergama now (Pergamon).
Apollo is the Greek god of music. Apollo, is he the master of the entertainment world?
The traditional music of the Philippines, like the folk music of other countries, reflects the life of common, mostly rural Filipino. Filipinos are Music Lover. Who remembers Charise? ‘Glee' star Charice Pempengco is now Jake Zyrus by Lisa France-Profile Image, CNN, Updated 2051 GMT (0451 HKT); June 22, 2017.
One-third of angels
Lucifer drew one-third of the angels in heaven to rebel against God. The Scriptures says that was the reason they were thrown down in hell. Unfortunately, hell is right here on earth. So we are standing atop the lower region. Jesus Christ said that the god of the lower regions is Pluto while Orcus is the god of the dead (Matthew 16:18).
Lucifer whose named is Satan according to Bible Experts is in charge of worship in heaven. That could be the reason that the Music and Entertainment Industry is dominated by the secular people not the people of God.
Filipinos are divinely gifted according to our historian Sonia Zaide. In her book, she wrote that Filipinos are gifted with faith and music.
Romans Chapter 1
We should read and interpret the Book of Romans according to the culture of the Romans and the Greek and in the revelation of the Word of God.
I’ve been to Rome and some parts of Italy for a brief time and I know a bit of the Roman culture.
In almost every street or corner or piazza (plaza), you will see statues of Greek gods and goddesses in the like of Venus, Aphrodite, Mercury, Mars and others. There Greek goddess of victory named “Nikao” or “Nika” for example has a Roman name “Victoria” while Greek goddess “Artemis” is called “Diana” in Roman.
The Vatican City is a separation nation in Italy. It is a nation within a nation which is recognized by the United Nations (UN) as a separate state which is a religious state of the Roman Catholic Church. Though it is a UN member-state, it has no power to vote as far as I know and it is the only religious state so far. Not even the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which is the seat of Islamic faith is being called a “religious state”. As far as I know, Arabia is under monarch government.
Going back to Italy or Rome as anciently called which once a seat of the Roman Empire is basically influenced with the Greek culture and paganism is widely practiced.
Reading Romans 1:13
“Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: ( that is according to knowledge of who God is according to the Natural Law in Romans 2:7; with the Law, or without the Law or in the conscience or according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ to whom we were privileged to hear and to believe in as it says in Romans 2:2-16) as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (verse 20 speaks of Natural Law like the whole universe and its laws like law of gravity, etc revealing the indescribable power and glory of God) 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (the depraved minds, thoughts and imaginations speaks of result or consequence of sins of denying or despising God’s sovereign character making man as rational being as vain or empty or futile even he or she holds a doctoral degree> and I see a lot of them in the Academe and in the House of Congress or among lawyers) 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (The culprit of this man’s vanity is because of idolatry) 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (Sexual Aberrations is behavioural disorder as we call it in Abnormal Psychology in the 1970’s is the consequence of sin i.e. generic name due to idolatry i.e. brand name ). 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections (while vile is being defined by Webster as evil or immoral, the Greek “atimia” in etymological meaning as “dishonour, disgraceful or naka karimarim, reproach or naka kaiskandalo, shameful or kahiya-hiyal”). : for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (that speaks of homosexuality both to men and women i.e. lesbianism and even beyond that like sadism, masochism, voyeurism, exhibitionism, fetish, pornography, incest, sodomy, bestiality) 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, (The word “reprobate” in Greek “adokimos” means “worthless, unapproved, rejected, worthless”. In legal or judicial term and usage they call a worthless bill or law “moot and academic” ) to do those things which are not convenient; 29 (the following would be more branded sins like “transgression” in Hebrew “pasha” speaks of rebellion or treason against God, while “iniquities” on the other hand in Hebrew “avon” speaks of “perversity, depravity and punishments” of sins in Lev. 16:21, Job 13:23; Psalm 65:3) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 (the following verse speaks of committed crime worthy of death as penalty) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Sin, iniquities, transgressions
Sins, iniquities and transgressions are different. Sin was first mentioned in Gen. 4:7 when Cain offered an unacceptable sacrifice. Sin in Hebrew “chatta’ah” (khat-taw-aw) means “sin, sinful, condition of sin, guilt of sin, offence, habitual sinfulness and its penalty.” Sin also means “purifications from sins of ceremonial uncleanliness, occasion, purifying, sin offering.” Some sin does not leads to death according to Apostle John in 1 John 5:17. This sin in Greek “hamartia” means “mistakes, to be without a share on it; to miss the mark, to miss or wander from the path of uprightness and honour; to do or go wrong; to wander from the law of God, or violate God’s law, a violation” be done individually or collectively. Some violations have light punishment like community service, minimal fine, confiscation of driver’s license if traffic violations, or mere warning though.
But Apostle Paul mentioned “sin” in Romans 6:23 as “punishable by death” (thanatos i.e. separation of the body; the abode of the dead whose guardian is named Orcus, the god of the underworld). However in James 5:17-18, it says there are some “sins that does not lead to death” but any child of God “does not continue to sin” in New International Version (NIV).
The word “sin” used in 1 John 5:17, Romans 6:23 and James 5:17-18 is one and the same, the Greek “hamartia”.
The clarify a sin if it is grievous or not can be found in James 1:13-15. How sin is being processed is well-explained there and you’ll find the words, “temptation, evil, drawn away, lust, enticed, conception of sin, completion of sin, and death.” But what is clear there in terms of sin as hamartia is this – it speaks of habitual sins, something addictive which is beyond your own self-control which is “pharmakon” (pharmacy like illegal drugs) referring to “druggist, spell giving potion, magician or poisoner” which also means “SORCERY.”
Processes of Sins
1st Stage, Transgression, Hebrew “pasha” is rebellion against God = GOD OPPOSED
2nd Stage, Iniquity, Hebrew “avon” perversion, depravity, punishments = GENERIC SIN i.e. alteration of natural to unnatural. It is like from being original to counterfeit.
3rd Stage, Sin, Greek “hamartia,” = BRANDED SINS
When former Representative of Manila, Congressman Abante warned for legislating an “bill” that is likened with “Sodom and Gomorrah” before the Committee Hearing on Anti-SOGIE Discrimination Act under HB 4982 on November 16, 2016 at Quezon City, one lawmaker was highly offended and unleashed a threatening words saying, “If that will be the case, then will restrict your religious freedom.” The said bill is authored by Dumagat Representative Kaka Bag-o and Laguna Rep. Sol Aragones and sponsored by Reps. Geraldine B. Roman Reps. Emmeline Aglipay-Villar in the presence of other Reps like Baguilat and Villarin during the hearing (except Aragones).
What is your reaction would be if a congressman under oath of office who swore to pledge allegiance to adhere to the Philippine Constitution resulted into infernal-like emotional outburst threatening to imperil your religious conviction which is protected by the State?
Article III, Section 5. “Section 5. No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed. No religious test shall be required for the exercise of civil or political right
Apollo in Delphi, Greece
I merely hear Apollo as one of the Greek gods in our History Class in High School. Not until in 1985 when I travelled to Greece for a sightseeing tour and I had the chance to do island-hopping through a cruise ship. We stopped in one of the Aegean islets named Delphi where you can find the ancient Temple of Apollo
Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu according to Liddell and Scott.
Apollo and Akleopios in Pergammun
In June 11, 2017 in our trip to Asia Minor, I came across again with the name of Apollo in Pergamun. In ancient time, Pergammun is known to have the best hospital all over Turkey because of god of healing named Akleopios. Akleopios is the son of Apollo. Apollo is also known healing deity. Apollo’s son carries staff, that has the snake on it. It is the symbol of the American Doctors' Society.
In ancient Macedonia and Rome, an Asclepeion or Asklepieion or Asclepius who was a healing deity or god.
Apollo, deity of Hierapolis
Ms. Emile Meltem, our female Turkish tourist guide said while we were in Hierapolis, “These are original ancient pillars and columns which are hewn down, those under the pool water. This is where the priests walks in ... do you see these paths? This is where the Apollo Temple is, he is chief deity of Hierapolis.
There’s a place in Hierapolis called Plutonium that emits odorous and foul-smelling chemical called sulphur. So when the deep underground emits sulphur, the ancient people were panicking rushing to the portal of the deep giving offering to appease the local god which they call “Pluto” according to tradition.
Apollo as a chief deity of Hierapolis must be associated with Pluto then. Pluto is also called Orcus or Hades, the god of underworld as Jesus Christ mentioned in Matthew 16:18 which is referred to hell.
Who is Apollo?
Apollo is not the Apollos, the Jewish Christian convert from Alexandria who became a teacher of Christianity in Acts 19:1.
Apollo whom I am referring is a Greek god. He is the ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth) who is the god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more.
Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. Apollo has a twin sister called Artemis who is a huntress. Artemis is Tauric, Persian or Ephesian Artemis, the goddess of many Asiatic people. She is called Diana in Acts 19:24, 27 the chief goddess of Ephesus according to Thayer. Artemis is also Artemon (i.e. top-sail) perhaps associated with the goddess of the sea voyage I presumed. In Acts 19:35, the writer St. Luke said that the Ephesians are is “worshipper of goddess Diana and of the image that fell down from Jupiter.” Jupiter is an aerolite meaning “sky fallen” no less than Zeus. Zeus is the sky and thunder god in ancient Greek religion who ruled as king of the gods of Mount Olympus. Zeus is the god of thesed heavens.
Apollo and Hyacinthhus
Hyacinth or Hyacinthus was one of Apollo's male lovers. He was a Spartan prince, beautiful and athletic. The pair was practicing throwing the discus when a discus thrown by Apollo was blown off course by the jealous Zephyrus and struck Hyacinthus in the head, killing him instantly.
Apollo is said to be filled with grief: out of Hyacinthus' blood, Apollo created a flower named after him as a memorial to his death, and his tears stained the flower petals with the interjection αἰαῖ, meaning alas according to Liddell and Scott. The Festival of Hyacinthus was a celebration of Sparta.
When I was in San Francisco, California looking for a church, I saw a sign board that reads, “Christian Church of San Francisco” with another sign that says, “Strictly for gays only.”
When I was in Houston, Texas, USA, I was looking for a church where I can attend, I saw one that reads, “Christian Church of Scientific Minds.”
Apollo and other male lovers
Another male lover was Cyparissus, a descendant of Heracles. Apollo gave him a tame deer as a companion but Cyparissus accidentally killed it with a javelin as it lay asleep in the undergrowth. Cyparissus asked Apollo to let his tears fall forever. Apollo granted the request by turning him into the Cypress named after him, which was said to be a sad tree because the sap forms droplets like tears on the trunk.
Other male lovers of Apollo include: Admetus; Atymnius or Sarpedon. Carnus, Clarus, Hippolytus.
Apollo, god of the beasts
Animals sacred to Apollo included wolves, dolphins, roe deer, swans, cicadas (symbolizing music and song), hawks, ravens, crows, snakes (referencing Apollo's function as the god of prophecy), mice and griffins, mythical eagle–lion hybrids of Eastern origin according to Encyclopædia Britannica (11th ed.). Cambridge University Press.
The spirit of Apollo could have authored the present “Animal Rights” today.
It amazed me one time while we are driving to Colma, California near San Francisco when I saw a signboard that reads, “Animal Cemetery”. It is a cemetery for the cats and dogs. And I wonder that Americans have such a beautiful cemetery for animals compared to many poor Filipinos who are struggling financially in terms of burial expenses.
Hesychius connects the name Apollo with the (apella), which means "assembly", so that Apollo would be the god of political life, and he also gives the explanation σηκός (sekos), "fold", in which case Apollo would be the god of flocks and herds according to Castalia.
That is why there is a strong law now on “Animal Rights.” Sometimes I feel like animals are more favored than men, don’t you think so.
Any idea about bestiality? It is a sexual intercourse between man and a beast. I saw many of them these graphic images in the Hindu Temples as well in the Thailand’s Grand Palace where men makes sex with money.
Now bestiality is permissible by the law. Some states will protect your rights to make sex with animals. Will that be a “depraved mind” of a judge? Or a national (moral) plague of a sinful nation.
By the way, Apollo is also the “god of the plague.” Sodomy or bestiality is one and the same (Gen. 10:19; 13:10). It is a name of place as well as an act of man. Sedom or Sodom is Canaanite city paired with Gomorrah, located in the area of the Dead Sea and the Jordan river. Both were destroyed by God in judgment due to homosexuality.
In our Psychology Class in the 1970s, sodomy is being referred to sexual act of man and animal as well to man and man when deep penetration is involved.
There are many biblical verses on bestiality. Leviticus 18:23 - Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it [is] confusion. Exodus 22:19 - Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death. Deuteronomy 27:21 - Cursed [be] he that lieth with any manner of beast. And all the people shall say, Amen. Leviticus 20:15-16 - And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.”
Apollo in the modern world
Apollo has often featured in postclassical art and literature. Percy Bysshe Shelley composed a "Hymn of Apollo" (1820), and the god's instruction of the Muses formed the subject of Igor Stravinsky's Apollon musagète (1927–1928). In 1978, the Canadian band Rush released an album with songs "Apollo: Bringer of Wisdom"/"Dionysus: Bringer of Love".
In discussion of the arts, a distinction is sometimes made between the Apollonian and Dionysian impulses where the former is concerned with imposing intellectual order and the latter with chaotic creativity. Friedrich Nietzsche argued that a fusion of the two was most desirable. Carl Jung's Apollo archetype represents what he saw as the disposition in people to over-intellectualise and maintain emotional distance.
Charles Handy, in Gods of Management (1978) uses Greek gods as a metaphor to portray various types of organisational culture. Apollo represents a 'role' culture where order, reason and bureaucracy prevail.
I have heard Sadhu Salvaraj of the word “I”. He said we must die with ourselves as an “I.” Unless Lucifer who became self-centered like the Greek mythology, Narcissus who loved himself so dearly that is why Nemesis, the god of retribution and revenge killed him.
But the word “I” is in the center-stage today. The love of self. If you love yourself, then you can marry yourself now. It is legal.
Apollo in the House of Congress?
Have you heard of Anti-SOGIE Discrimination Act? It pierces you to the bones if you are moralist.
Liddell and Scott said that Apollo’s shrine in Delphi that he shared in winter with Dionysius had the inscriptions: “know thyself") and "nothing in excess"), and "make a pledge and mischief is nigh").
Should “Anti-SOGIE Discrimination Act” under HB 4982 prospers and finally become a law, will that be the end of “religious freedom” curtailing the Bill of Rights seeing genuine ministers of the Gospel of Christ, priests and nuns, both Evangelicals and the Catholics being persecuted, arrested, imprisoned for 6 years maximum and a fine of not over than P5-Million pesos?
You must see and understand the bill in order for you to believe and get the counsel of the experts of the Philippine Constitution.
Shall the Filipino Christian will replay what have been done to the Christians during the time of Emperor Nero, Titus and Domitian under what they call “Imperial Cult?”
We had a chance to meet the District 6 Pangasinan Representative Marlin Primicias-Agabas at her residence in San Nicolas, Pangasinan last Friday October 14, 2017. I asked her this question, ”Did you vote in favor of “Anti-SOGIE Discrimination Act” or HB 4982? “
District 6 Pastors with Representative Marlin Primicia-Agabas
Grimly faced she said, “I’m not so sure whether I voted or not…” Yet PDI dated September 21 says that congress approved Anti-SOGIE Discrimination Act on the final reading with zero abstention and zero “no”. In the presence of 60 evangelical pastors, I said, “That one vote of NO makes a big difference. One vote of “NO” should have made a big difference and impact to this nation. That one NO vote will insinuates that there is only one lawmaker who knows that is right”
The House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez is an advocate of Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), dissolution of marriage, same –sex marriage?
Should HB 4982 will be approved as a law, any pastor, minister, or priest or Christian who will preach “immorality” like “homosexuality, adultery, fornication” even quoting it from the Bible in Revelation 21:8 will be considered “discriminatory”. Such discrimination can be criminalized and penalized for 6 years maximum imprisonment and P.5-Million maximum fine or both.
The spiritual, family, political, social, moral landscapes are fast changing today. You can call it evolvement, evolution, or whatever. But the Bible has one warning alone….
2 Timothy 3:1-9/ NKJV says, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.”
What do you mean by perilous? Perilous in Greek “chalepos” means “ troublesome” and “savaging”. It is like in the ancient uncivilized world when there is no rules and there is no laws. It is like no reason existing but barbaric like animals that simply uses instinct and not the intellect.
I always made mention in our Masters and Doctoral Class in Pangasinan State University the “words’, “terminologies” and “etymologies” will soon be corrupted to suit the tsunami-like demonic change in the world to fit in to the coming of the anti-Christ and the Devil.
And we are just in the beginning of the end…..
Peps Diary; Hierapolis dated June 13, 2017
Apollo in Heliopolis
In June 13, 2017 we came to Heliopolis. That is where the ancient city established by Hellenistic in 3rd BC which is city in the Roman era. Laodicea and also Colossae are parts of Heliopolis.
According to Dr. Mark Fairchild, an American biologist and archaeologist who was with during the brief tour shared to us that there are four (4) cities in Heliopolis called. Heliopolis, Laodicea, Colossae, and Tripolis which is further north (a newly excavated city). Those are four wealthy cities
We went farther to what they call “Cleopatra’s Pool” where the Temple of Apollo is also located. Apollo is associated with Pluto is god of the underworld. Poisonous gas is coming from the ground. Pluto is a name of person and a place.
Ancient people didn’t recognize that and they associated the poisons with god Apollo together with the priests. So they offered animals and they will hold their breath as they come closer to this site and then they will offer blood and animal sacrifices. And they would come from this hole (called as plutonium) associating it as if they are coming back to life.
This place is called Plutonium. The Temple of Apollo is there. Then there is a theatre that can hold 10,000 people. Farther, farther up to the theatre, there are stairs, where you find martyrdom of St. Philip. That was there? Those trees are blocking it. Can you see the remains? That where Philip was martyred. This is important pilgrimage sight especially in Byzantine time.
(PEPS: Dionysus; God of the vine, grape harvest, winemaking, wine, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, and theatre )
Heliopolis is the largest in Turkey. It is so massive. There are plenty of Jewish tombs and menorahs here. That's important. You know that place is what more important to see when there is a Jewish presence. .
Quite recently, that was four years ago they found the Tomb of Philip. They could not found it first. Then they finally discovered another place nearby till they found the tomb of Philip, the evangelist.
The Dionysian Gate is out there. You must be familiar of that name by this time now. He was an emperor who wanted to be worshipped.
Pluto is both a name of a place and a person.
Plutonium is one of the entrances of hell. Jesus said "The gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church,” in Matthew 16:18. “Those who want to go to Philip tomb, you can go “, says Emile Meltex.
(Peps: Hell is named after Hades or Pluto, the god of the lower regions. Orcus, the nether world, the realm of the dead. Later the name of the word is being referred to grave, death or hell).
LGBT & Greek gods
While LGBT uses the ancient history of Greek gods to defend and rationalize their sexual preferences yet they purposely ignore Greek god of judgment in Revelation 21;18 and 22:15 “whoremongers” or pornos where is destined to Greek “thanatos” or “Death” i.e. Lake of Fire.
