GODDESS Worship in A Historical and Archeological Timeline
Stone Age (beginning of recorded human timeline - 4500 BCE and 2000 BCE) “THE GREAT GODDESS” (some called HER the "Divine Ancestress”, yet SHE is not a woman) is worshiped during the Upper Paleolithic Age, at approx.25,000 BC – This is based upon the archaeological evidence. The writings and artifacts about the people and their female GOD have survived. These religions, which worshiped THE female god Ashera (not our "THE TRUE "GODDESS" OR "GOD""), thrived for many thousands of years before the Roman Period, and the Classic Age. What made the worship of Ashera wrong is the people had HER (GOD'S) identity wrong.
Bronze Age, and Iron Age (3600-200 BCE) Then, about 6,000 years ago, this Old European (a term coined by Ms. Marija Gimbutas) culture, in which the two sexes lived in harmony with one another and with nature, was shattered by patriarchal invaders who installed their warlike gods in place of THE life-generating “GREAT GODDESS” (Gimbutas & Steinfels, 1990). The Russian invaders transformed Old Europe. Their gods of war dethroned THE GREAT GODDESS. They incorporated HER into the male-dominated pantheons, such as HER being their god’s wife, daughter, or partner in crime, and even eroticized like the goddess Aphrodite, or the war-like GODDESS ATHENA (CAE CAE). Patriarchy and hierarchy were the new leaders of religions, and the people had better change their beliefs and worship practices, or they faced persecution, or death. (The Stone, Bronze, Axial, and Iron Ages timelines vary depending upon which continent being discussed)
Roman Period and Classic Age (30 BCE and lasting until 16th century) Judaism, and early Christianity worshiped Asherah, or, as the Greeks CORRECTLY named HER, ATHENA. During the Ugaritic Pantheon (Pantheon means the worshiping of plural and equal Gods). Early Jewish religion had polytheism, which included the worship of GODDESS(es) and A Cult of THE GODDESS. In these ancient times, people had many gods, in fact, Judaism required all of Canaanite people to stop worshiping so many gods, and to stop worshiping just ONE female GOD (GREAT GODDESS).
Classic Age (700 BCE – 600 AD) - Modern Era (Europe, 20th century) The last known GODDESS temples were closed around 500 AD. Not much has been discussed about The female GREAT GODDESS who was worshiped in the ancient periods of humanity. The first Jesus comes to know of GOD'S TRUE IDENTITY, yet He refuses to worship HER, and instead He worships the male god Daniel, our GOD'S god.
Common Era, Information Age (21st century) GOD ACTUALLY IS female, and so we now must revert back to ancient times, back to when GOD was actually worshiped IN HER TRUE INDENTITY, ONE GOD, HER NAME "CAE CAE" (MEANING: "ONE GREAT OPENING", OR, "ONE GREAT AND POWERFUL GOD"). In Judaism today it is believed that GOD has no physical formI can attest this is NOT true, SHE HAS A BODY, I've seen HER!), therefore no-gender, and so the idea that GOD is male or female is wrong to their belief. They speak and write about GOD using masculine terms for convenience, because in the Hebrew language there is no word for “having no gender”. They do speak of GOD using feminine Words like The Shechinah (HOLY SPIRIT), meaning: “THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD’S PRESENCE” THAT FILLS the universe. Most all other major religions of the world worship GOD as a male, which is incorrect!
In her research, “Dr. Gimbutas argues that between 7000 B.C. and 3500 B.C. the people of Europe lived in sedentary agricultural societies that worshiped the Great Goddess, delighted in nature, shunned war, built comfortable settlements rather than forts and crafted superb ceramics rather than weapons. The social system was matrilineal. Women headed clans or served as queen-priestesses. Men labored as hunters and builders. But neither men nor women dominated the other sex (Gimbutas & Steinfels, 1990).” This is the very same as what GOD REVEALED TO Me, “that the female gender is actually the dominant gender, and that men must not dominate women, yet we are to work as teammates, respectful to each other”.
GOD REVEALS TO Me SHE IS female on December 6, 2010, and that SHE IS, AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN THE “female GOD of Ancient history”, but that HER REAL NAME IS “CAE CAE”. I had Received Two Visits, back in 1995, I awoke on a sunny day in My home located in Dry Fork, Utah, to see a female ANGELIC BEING, GOD, standing at the foot of My bed, and in an instant SHE was gone! SHE IS beautiful, and I could almost see through HER, and SHE had a blue tint to HER. I was so excited that I had to share this with My wife at the time. Then, about a month later, GOD VISITED Me again! This time I was lying in bed, wide awake, but My eyes were closed as I contemplated getting up to start My day. When all of a sudden, I felt something on My hand. I opened My eyes to see HER HAND TOUCHING Mine, and then in a flash, HER HAND WAS GONE. I have not seen "HER PHYSICAL PRESENCE” since "Those Glorious Days"! Since those VISITS, I have learned the term for HER STATE OF BEING, IT IS NAMED "ANTHROPOTHEISM".
When Moses asked for GOD'S NAME, SHE REPLIED, "EHYEH ASHER AHYEH". That phrase is generally translated as, "I AM THAT I AM", but The Word "EHYEH" can be present or future tense, Meaning "I AM WHAT I WILL BE", or, "I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE”. The ambiguity of the phrase is often interpreted as A Reference to GOD'S ETERNAL NATURE, and to The Fact that people had used many names for HER, but that ONLY ONE NAME would be used in the future. THAT ETERNAL NAME IS "CAE CAE", AND HER ETERNAL NATURE IS “ONE GREAT AND POWERFUL GOD”.
GOD’S MESSAGE TO us IS simple: Worship HER alone, pray, confess your sins, repent, and seek forgiveness of sins, obey The Ten Commandments, then, practice The GOD Inspired Twelve Steps.
