THE LOST TRIBE OF DAN

THE EARLY JEWISH & CHRISTIAN VIEW OF THE IDENTITY OF THE ANTICHRIST
 

by 

Janet Moser

 

 

"...the snorting of his horses was heard from Dan."  Jeremiah 8:16

 

Samson, a Nazarite of the tribe of Dan, judged Israel during the period of Philistine domination.  At the feast celebrating his marriage to a Philistine woman, Samson proposed a riddle to the Philistines: "Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness." Judges 14:14  On the seventh day of the feast, the importunate bride extracted from Samson the interpretation of the riddle and related its meaning to her people, viz., that the carcass of a young lion which Samson had killed with his bare hands had attracted a swarm of bees who produced honey therein.  Samson paid the wager by slaying thirty Philistines -- after which his wife was taken from him.  Angered by their treachery, Samson avenged himself by slaughtering many more Philistines and eventually the Philistine lords. Samson's riddle seems to be a Messianic prophecy:

"The Philistines could not figure out the meaning of the riddle, because they had not seen the dead lion, out of whose death came honey. Nor did they know its meaning-that the secret of the Promised Land flowing with milk and honey was by seeing the dead Lion of Judah, "who was delivered up because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification" (Rom. 4:25). The revelation of the riddle would bring the reward of new garments, the "garments of salvation" (Isaiah 61:10). Paul speaks of these garments as a 'tabernacle' with which we desire to be clothed, so that we might obtain immortality (2 Cor. 5:1-4). This story, then, is another prophecy of how to be saved and to be granted immortality, clothed with a new and glorified body. Samson's riddle tells us how to interpret Jacob's blessing upon Judah. Judah was to bring forth the King-Messiah, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who would die and be raised from the dead. That was Judah 's calling, and Jesus was indeed born of the tribe of Judah." (Struggle for the Birthright)

Several obscure prophecies in the Bible point to the fact that the tribe of Dan will produce the Antichrist. In the context of these prophecies, Samson's riddle may also be a prophecy that the descendants of the tribe of Dan will one day try to destroy the tribe of Judah in jealous revenge for God's judgment on their idolatry. From the carcass of the young lion [Judaism] the tribe of Dan [typified by the bees] will attempt to produce their own golden age [symbolized by honey] and confer immortality on mankind through occult enlightenment.  The conspiracy of the tribe of Dan, aka the Synagogue of Satan, to steal the messianic birthright from the tribe of Judah and establish a false messianic kingdom in Israel is given more detailed treatment in our report, Mystery Babylon: Catholic or Jewish?

To suggest that the Antichrist will be from one of the tribes of Israel is likely to incur accusations of "anti-Semitism" from those who would like to conceal this fact. However, we believe that the Biblical admonition to bless the descendants of Abraham [Gen. 12:3] includes exposing the identity of the man of sin who will lead many Jews to their destruction.

The Merovingian dynasty or Synagogue of Satan which plans to rule the world from their future throne at Jerusalem, claims to come from the tribe of Judah through Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.  However, the weight of evidence indicates that they descended from the tribe of Dan.  Although Scripture states that Samson's father was “of the family of the Danites” [Judges 13:2], Yair Davidy of Brit-Am Israel claims that his lineage includes the Messianic tribe of Judah: “Samson the superman hero came from the Tribe of Dan but his mother was from Judah. Samson, in some respects, was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the Tribe of Dan.” [Brit-Am Israel newsletter, 2/9/99]

 

Yair Davidy's claim that Samson's mother was of the tribe of Judah seems to have originated with Rabbi Abraham Zacuto, a medieval Sephardic Jewish astrologer and Kabbalist sage who authored The Book of Lineage (Sefer Juchasin). According to John Gill's exposition of 1 Chronicles 4:3, "...a Jewish chronologer1 tells us, that the mother of Samson was Hazalelponith, of the tribe of Judah. 1. Juchasin, fol. 10. 2."

 

"Abraham Zacuto (1452-1514), probably of the first Jewish sages who embraced modernity while keeping the unbroken chain of tradition from Abraham to the Talmud scholars to Moses Maimonides. He was a contemporary of Leonardo da Vinci, a leading astronomer who stood at the cradle of great geographical discoveries of 16th century, advised Columbus and guided Vasco da Gama, was a luminary at the Court of Kings of Spain and Portugal, merged science and Kabbala, taught at Salamanca University and lived in the Templar-built mysterious Castle of Tomar, travelled through the Orient from Tunis to Constantinople, to find his eternal rest in Jerusalem. While meeting with kings and princes, he considered himself first of all a Jewish sage in the long line of Jewish sages. The Book of Lineage, or Sefer Yohassin, his Opus Magnum, was completed five hundred years ago after a decade-spanning work. This is the first historical chronicle covering the entire history of mankind from the Jewish perspective, integrating the records of Jewish chronographers. This book provides a unique insight into the world of the Talmud populated by sages, their wives and their disciples, human beings of flesh and blood, the world he learned from his teacher, the great Jewish mystic Aboab, the author of Menorath Ha-Maor, and he knew it exceedingly well. It is also a primary source dealing with appearance of the Zohar in Spain. Thus this book allows to appreciate wonders of the world of Talmud and tradition, as well as those of pre-exilic Spain and Portugal." (www.zacuto.org)

It is through the agency of Jewish Kabbalists such as the Sephardim and the Lubavitch Movement that the Gentiles will be judged by a restored Sanhedrin that enforces the genocidal Noahide Laws worldwide.  Yair Davidy stated, “The name DAN means 'judge' in Hebrew. Many lawyers and judges in the USA are of Irish descent of a particular type as is much of the police force ... Descendants of Dan today appear to be concentrated in Ireland, Britain, the USA, and especially Denmark.”  This Synagogue of Satan has also infiltrated Christianity and are leading pseudo-Christian organizations, as many profiles in the Council for National Policy and Discernment Ministries reveal. They also lead the Hebrew Roots / Messianic Movement for the purpose of Judaizing Christians and promoting Zionism.

The following paper is meant to serve as a study guide for understanding the plan of Satan to introduce his false messiah who will be of the apostate tribe of Dan. The reader will be able to review the many Scriptures which concern the tribe of Dan—the prophecies, the Danite people, their land, history, idolatry and symbols—in conjunction with relevant information from other sources.

 


TABLE OF CONTENTS

Introduction

I.    Consider the Prophecies

Different Bible versions allow for different interpretations of prophecy.  Therefore, the traditional view represented by the King James Version is used in this report.  Scripture indicates the following: That the Antichrist is Jewish; He will come from the region of Dan/Mount Hermon [Mount Sion] in the north of Israel as a false fulfillment of Romans 11:26; The tribe of Dan will be rejected by God as part of the 144,000 and will be used by God to bring judgment upon Israel and the unbelieving world.

II.    Consider the People

The Arcadian roots of the Merovingians, Spartans and Celts seem to be connected to the tribe of Dan because of their use of Dan-related place-names, personal names and peculiarities, i.e., Baal/goddess worship and architectural skills.

III.   Consider the Locations

The Tribe of Dan inherited the pre-flood paganism [Baal worship] of the Canaanites [descendants of Ham and his son, Canaan] who occupied the northern area of Palestine at Mt. Hermon/Sion. Located at the 33rd degree, the ancient tribe of Dan influenced the basis of modern Freemasonry.

IV.  Consider the Symbols

The symbols of the tribe of Dan are used by the Merovingian Jews, the Jewish House of Stewart and the Jewish authors of the Protocols of Sion [Representatives of Sion of the 33rd degree].

V.   Consider the Sin

The Tribe of Dan was involved in a substitute worship system at Mt. Hermon/Sion that was both opposed to and removed from the true worship of God at Mount Zion in Jerusalem.

VI.  Consider the Plan

The Judeo-Masonic conspirators have revealed to their own elect and concealed from the profane the fact that a Danite false messiah will reign from the territory of Mount Sion in Dan rather than Mount Zion in Jerusalem.  Their ultimate objective is to recreate the pre-flood pagan culture which God once judged and will judge again.
 

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of the report will be to consider six major areas concerning the tribe and territory of Dan in order to see if there is any merit, at this point in history, to the following tradition as it was expressed by the early Church Fathers and the Jewish Encylopedia.

"Irenaeus ('Heresies' Vol. 302), Hippolytus ('De Christo et Antichristo', pp. 14,15), and other Church fathers have a tradition which can not but be of Jewish origin, that the Antichrist comes from the tribe of Dan, and base it upon Jer. VIII.16: 'The snorting of his (the enemies) his horses was heard from Dan'... Irenaeus remarks that Dan is, in view of this tradition, not in the Apocalypse (Rev.vii.5-7) among the 144,000 saved ones of the twelve tribes. Nor is the omission of Dan in I Chron. iv. et seq. unintentional... Dan became the very type of evildoing. He was placed in the north (Num.ii.25), this being the region of darkness and evil (Jer. i.14) because of his idolatry which wrapped the world in darkness (Num.ii.)."  [Singer, The Jewish Encyclopedia, ("Dan"), p. 423]

"And Jeremiah does not merely point out his [Antichrist] sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come where he says 'We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan; the whole earth shall be moved by the voice of the neighing of his galloping horses: he shall also come and devour the earth, and the fulness thereof, the city also, and they that dwell therein.' This, too, is the reason that this tribe is not reckoned in the Apocalypse along with those which are saved." [Irenaeus, "Against Heresies," Book V, Chap. 30]

"There are different answers to the question whether the Antichrist will be a Jew or a heathen. That he will be a Jew, and apparently of the tribe of Dan, Irenaeus based on Jer. 8:16 and the absence of that tribe in Rev. 7:5-8. Hippolytus grounded it upon Deut. 33:22; Gen. 49:16,17, and the consideration that as the opposite to Christ he must descend from Israel. Ambrose refers to John 5:43; Prof. Schlatter to II Thess. 2:4; that he sets himself in the temple of God, not of idols." [Erich Sauer, The Triumph of the Crucified, p. 119]
 

I.    CONSIDER THE PROPHECIES

    A.    The Antichrist

        1.    He is a Jew

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers ...nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. Daniel 11:37
        2.    He is from the tribe/region of Dan
We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein. For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD. Jeremiah 8:15-17

 

"Dan shall be like a lion which leaps forth from his covert in Bashan." [Albert Barnes' Notes on the Bible]

 

"And Jeremiah does not merely point out his [Antichrist] sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come where he says 'We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan; the whole earth shall be moved by the voice of the neighing of his galloping horses: he shall also come and devour the earth, and the fulness thereof, the city also, and they that dwell therein.' This, too, is the reason that this tribe is not reckoned in the Apocalypse along with those which are saved." [Irenaeus, "Against Heresies," Book V, Chap. 30]

        3.    He is from the serpent's root.
Please note the context of Isaiah 14 is Lucifer's fall to earth in the endtime [Revelation 12].
Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent... Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.  Isaiah 14:29,31
     B.    Dan/Tribe of Dan

        1.    Dan means "judge"

And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan. Genesis 30:6
        2.    Will be used by God to judge his people
And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days... Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD." Genesis 49:1,16-18

For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from mount Ephraim... I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.  I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.  I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.  I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.  For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. Jeremiah 4:15, 23-27

        3.    Is missing from the 144,000 during the Tribulation
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe[s] of Juda... Reuben... Gad... Aser... Nepthalim... Manasses... Simeon... Levi... Issachar... Zabulon... Joseph... Benjamin were sealed... Revelation 7:4-8
       4.    Will worship a false god
They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again. Amos 8:11-14


II.    CONSIDER THE PEOPLE

    A.    The Tribe of Dan

        1.    Samson

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not...And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him. Judges 13:2, 24
        2.    Aholiab
And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee. The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle. Exodus 31:6,7
        3.    Hiram/Huram
And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding, of Huram my father's, The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David thy father. II Chronicles 2:13,14

"But neither Athelstan and his son, nor the Comacine Masons, serve to account for one of the most salient aspects of later Freemasonry -- the fact that it contains a major skein of Judaic tradition filtered through Islam. The corpus of legends central to Freemasonry -- including, of course, the building of Solomon's Temple -- derives ultimately from Old Testament material, both canonical and apocryphal, as well as from Judaic and Islamic commentaries upon it. It is worth looking at the most important of these legends -- the murder of Hiram Abiff -- in some detail. The Hiram story is rooted in the context of the Old Testament. It figures in two books, I Kings and II Chronicles." [Baigent, The Temple & The Lodge, p. 124]

    B.    Merovingian Jews may be descendants of Dan
"Merovingian geographical place-names and personal names were sometimes Jewish. In the 6th Century a brother of King Clothair was named Samson while Miron "Le Levite" was a count. 'Sion' and 'Le Levite' were Merovingian towns in France. Scholars have even traced Merovingian 'Salic Law' back to Judaic law." [Bradley, p. 179]

"The Merovingian's...tradition of long hair and the name Samson among the Royal House would indicate the descent from Samson and thus the Tribe of Dan." [Bloomer]

"The Merovingian kings...were called the long-haired Monarchs because they placed great value on their long hair and believed that it gave them strength. One wonders whether Samson was a Merovingian ancestor!" [Van Buren, p. 30]

    C.    Danaus (a Danite?)

        1.    Arcadians/Spartans are possibly from the Tribe of Dan

"Now, the question remains, how do we know the Spartans were the offspring of the tribe of Dan? ... Aside from the fact that the Spartans wore long hair as a symbol of their power (like Samson) there is a legend written about the son of Belus, king of the Spartans -- in which is given the story of one named 'Danaus,' who arrived in Greece with his daughters by ship. According to the legend, his daughters called themselves Danades. They introduced the cult of the mother goddess, which became the established religion of the Arcadians and developed over the years into the worship of Diana...The Spartans so loved their king that they called themselves Danaans -- long before they adopted the name of Spartans.  Also in the legend is a record of the arrival of 'colonists from Palestine.' Please note, the man who headed the expedition was named Danaus. He may well have been of the tribe of Dan, and thus would have been the progenitor of the ancient Spartans." [Church, p. 120-21]

"In Greek myth...[is] the legend of King Belaus, one Danaus, who arrives in Greece with his daughters, by ship. His daughters are said to have introduced the cult of the mother goddess, which became the established cult of the Arcadians. According to Robert Graves the Danaus myth records the arrival in the Peleponnesus of 'colonists from Palestine.' Graves states that King Belus is in fact Baal, or Bel -- or perhaps Belial from the Old Testament." [Baigent, Holy Blood, p. 275]

"At that particular time Arcadia was ruled by Spartans... The Spartans placed a special magical significance on their long hair ...associated with their great strength. There appears to have been a relationship between the Spartans and the Jews. In the Apocryphal we read: 'It has been found in writing concerning the Spartans and the Jews that they are brethren and are of the family of Abraham.'  (Maccabees I 12:21)" [Van Buren, p. 45]

       2.    Celts may be of the Tribe of Dan
"There are certain facts that suggest that the Celts might have derived from a Jewish tradition from the East. The Celtic body of ecclesiastical and civil knowledge was Druidism. Their system can be traced to about 1800 B.C... . It is recorded in 'Welsh Triads' that Hugh Gadarn synthesized the wisdom of the ancients for those whom he led west from...Sumer and Mesopotamia... In 'The Psalter of Cashel' it states that: 'The Tuatha de Danaan' ruled in Ireland for about two centuries, and were highly skilled in architecture and other arts from their long residence in Greece.' The Tuatha de Danaan were the descendants of Danaus, the son of Belus, who went with his fifty daughters to Argos, the home of his ancestrous Io. In Irish legends the Tuatha de Danaan, who were considered to be demi-gods, ...were said to have possessed a ...Grail-like vessel... These teachers of wisdom ... were the founders of the Druidic priesthood." [Van Buren, p. 141-142]


III.    CONSIDER THE LOCATIONS

    A.    The Land of Canaan/Palestine

        1.    Canaan

And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. Genesis 9:22-25

"Canaan...is the older name of Palestine." [Unger, p. 202]

"Canaan is the listed as the fourth son of Ham." [Unger, p. 953]

        2.    Palestine

             a.    The root words of Palestine are Peles and Heth

#6429  Pelesheth, a region of Syria:--Palestina, Palestine, Philistia, Philistine." [Strong's Concordance, "The Hebrew & Chaldee Dictionary"]

    1)    Heth is the son of Canaan

And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth. Genesis 10:15

    2)    Pelles

"In the Grail tradition of Botticellis' time, the Arcadian sea-lord, Pallas, was manifest in King Pelles ... the Fisher King is sometimes Pelles (from Pallas, the ancient Bistea Neptunis of the Merovingian ancestry."  [Gardner, pp. 176, 238]
    b.    Pales[tine] = of Phales/phallos

"...-ine, a suffix of adjectives of Greek or Latin origin, meaning 'of or pertaining to,' 'of the nature of,' 'made of,' 'like'... [Random House College Dictionary]

"...at Rome...[a] male Pales was sometimes spoken of corresponding in some respects to Pan." [The New Encyclopedia Britannica, "Pales," p. 600]

"The fire... was looked upon as the purifier, and in April every year, at the...feast of Pales, both men and cattle, for this purpose, were made to pass through the fire." [Hislop, quoting Ovid, p. 236]

"At Cyllene, Hermes was worshipped by the name of Phales - derived from Phallos - and in the image of a phallic stone. More usually...his phallic image was a herm. Originally a stone heap..." [Eliade, Encyclopedia of Religion, Phallus, p. 264]

Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake...The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina...all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. Exodus 15:1,14,15

    B.    The tribe of Dan's position in the camp in the wilderness
The standard of the camp of Dan shall be on the north side by their armies: and the captain of the children of Dan shall be Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. Numbers 2:25a

"...Dan became the very type of evildoing. He was placed in the north (Num. ii.25), this being the region of darkness and evil (Jer. i.14)..." [Singer, Jewish Encyclopedia ("Dan"), p. 423]

    C.    Territories of Dan in the land of Israel

    1.    By the sea

...Why did Dan remain in ships? Judges 5:17
"Dan was the last of the tribes to receive his portion, which was the smallest of the twelve. It had...a line of seacoast which seems to have led the tribes to engage in fishing in commerce..." [Unger, p. 273]
        2.    In the sides of the north

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  Isaiah 14:12-13

"Part of the tribe of Dan, unable to secure its inheritance, migrated north and captured Laish, renaming it Dan." [Atlas of the Bible Lands, p. 8]

    a.    Located at the 33rd degree [both latitude and longitude according to the Paris Zero Meridian]

"Prior to the adoption in 1884 of Greenwich as the international Zero Meridian, each country made use of its own. The French Zero Meridian... is still used on the official maps produced by the Institut Geographique National...[Giovanni Domenico] Cassini's meridian arc is still marked upon French maps as the Paris Zero." [Lincoln, pp. 75, 141]
Note: Using the Greenwich Zero Meridian, the northern territory of Dan lies at 35.5 degrees longitude. However, if the Paris Zero Meridian is used, having a 2.5 difference from Greenwich, Dan is found to lie at the 33rd degree longitude and latitude.
   b.    Located at Keter, the first sephirot on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life
"The paradisical theme park...will be marked upon a special map of 'The Spiritual Geography of the Holy Land', with sacred sites and the alignments between them and upon which a diagram of the [Kabbalistic] 'Tree of Life' is traced marking ten such sites...over the whole land of Israel..." [Genesis of Eden]

Note: Planetary positions set out upon the Tree of Life reveal the first sephirot [Keter] as the "One". [Fiedler, p. 236-37]

"Ancient myths and rites present Saturn as the god "One," the first king, and the all-encompassing  Heaven man." [Talbot, p. 30]

In Chevalier, p. 734, Pan/Saturn is revealed as the All. This would place the Panias/Dan area in the Keter position. [Section III.D.3]

    D.    The City of Dan - Chronology and History of Baal/Pan worship

        1.    Laish/Leshem [Lion]

And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan. Deuteronomy 33:22

And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages. Joshua 19:47-48

And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel: howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first. Judges 18:29

 

Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards. Song of Solomon 4:8

"It was first a Canaanite sanctuary for the worship of Baal; perhaps Baal-Hermon (Judg.3:3; I Chron. 5:23].  It was called by the Greeks Paneas because of its cavern...dedicated to the worship of the god Pan." [Unger, p. 191]

       2.    Dan [1406 B.C]
And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages. Joshua 19:47-48
Panias was called by the Jews "Dan" or "Mizvar Dan" (Fort of Dan). [Encyclopedia Judaica, "Banias", p. 162]
       3. Dan-Jaan may indicate involvement in Pan-worship. [1017 B.C.]
Then they came to Gilead, and to the land of Tahtimhodshi; and they came to Danjaan, and about to Zidon... II Samuel 24:6

"Hebrew dan ya'an, 'Dan played a pipe', indicates that it was a suburb of Dan." [Tenney, Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary, p. 199]

       4.   Panias/Paneas
"... later the Greeks built a shrine to Pan, the god of nature, and called the place Paneas (the city of Pan)." [Thompson, p. 1734]

"The place had been named Panias, for it served as the favorite seat of Pan, a Greek fertility god." [Pfeiffer, p. 197]

"The gods gave him the name of Pan, meaning 'All Things'...because he is a universal tendency incarnate. He was the god of All Things, doubtless indicative of the procreative current charging All Things, All Gods or All Life." [Chevalier, p. 734]

"One of the main sources of the Jordan rises in the grotto of Pan..." [Herberman, Catholic Encyclopedia, "Caesarea Philippi," p. 135]

"...the Jordan river that weaves like a snake along the eastern border of the land of Israel is named after the ancient tribe of Dan. Jordan means 'the going down of the Dan.'" [Church, p. 124]
       5.    Caesarea Philippi [4 B.C.]
"In 4 B.C. this area became tetrarchy of Herod's son Philippus who refounded Paneas as Caesarea Philippi." [Freedman, "Ituraea", p. 583]
"A remarkable monument, which has seen all the periods of the history of Caesarea Philippi, is the vast castle above the site of the city, built in the Syro-Greek or even Phoenician times and, after receiving additions from the Saracens and Franks, is still the most remarkable fortress in the Holy Land." [Hackett, p. 341]

From the second century the city was called "Caesarea Panias." [Singer, Jewish Encyclopedia, "Caesarea Philippi," p. 488]

       6.    Neronias [61-68 A.D.]
In 61 A.D. Caesarea Philippi was renamed Neronias. [Encyclopedia Judaica, "Banias", p. 162]

"Agrippa II called the city Neronias...as is proved from the city's coins..." [Hastings, "Caesarea Philippi," p. 338]

       7.    Caesarea Panias [2nd Century A.D.]
From the 2nd century the city is called Caesarea Panias. [Singer, Jewish Encyclopedia, "Caesarea Philippi", p. 488]
       8.    Banias/Paneas [4th-13th Centuries A.D.]
"Paneas then again asserts itself with Caesarea, and finally Caesarea disappears, and Paneas takes permanent possession in the Arabic form of Banias, for the Arabs have no 'p'." [Hastings, "Caesarea Philippi, p. 388]

"Under the simple name of Paneas it was the seat of a Greek bishopric in the period of the great councils, and of a Latin bishopric during the crusades." [Hackett, "Caesarea Philippi", p. 340]

       9.    Belinas [Bel?]
"During the crusades it was called Belinas" [Encyclopedia Judaica, "Banias," p. 162]
    E.    Mount Hermon
And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley. Judges 1:34
        1.    The name "Hermon" [Since Hermon represents Ham, then Pan represents his son, Canaan]
"Hermon means (Forbidden [Place])." [Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th Ed., 1987, "Hermon, Mount" p. 876]

"The interpretation of Hermon is 'anathema'..." [Jerome, "Homily 66," p. 70]

"...Hermes[']...name is Greek. The later Greek-speaking peoples did not know the name that the pre-Hellenic inhabitants had given to the god of these stone heaps; and the name...was doubtless withheld from them. Therefore, they could only refer to him as 'Hermes' from their word for 'stone heap'. In the Laconian dialect...he was known as 'Herman', He of the stone heap..." [Cavendish, p. 1289]

"On one of its three secondary peaks, there are ruins of a circular wall within which lies a heap of hewn stone, said to be remnants of a Syrian altar, possibly in honor of Baal." (cf. Jgs.3.3; I Chr.5.23)" [New Catholic Encyclopedia, "Hermon, Mount", p. 1078]

"...Thoth-Hermes...was the biblical Ham...deriving from the word Herma which relates to the 'pile of stones'." [Gardiner, Genesis of the Grail Kings, p. 219]

"The Greeks called him [Mercury] Hermes...Pan, the god of shepherds was the son of Mercury." [Burns, pp. 146-7]

        2.    Pre-Flood Mount Hermon
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. Genesis 6:1,2

For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.  Deuteronomy 3:11

Now these are the kings of the land, which the children of Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east: . . . And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei, And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon. Joshua 12:1, 4-5

"...legends anterior to Gnosticism...attributed a sacred character to Mount Hermon, the supposed residence of the children of Seth at the beginning of human existence." [Doresse, p. 255]

"The Valentinians ...regarded Seth['s]...sons...to be the 'Sons of God,' who, upon Mount Hermon, led a pious and secluded life cherishing the nostalgia for paradise." [Doresse, p. 39, note 97]

"Hittite and biblical records support the use of Hermon as a dwelling place of gods. . Ritual centers were located at the foot of Hermon: Baal-gad...in the valley of Lebanon under Mount Hermon (Josh.11:17) and Baal-hermon (I Chr. 5:23)." [Freedman, "Hermon, Mount, p. 158]

"We have read in a certain apocryphal book [Enoch 6:5-8] that when the sons of God were coming down to the daughters of men, they descended upon Mount Hermon..." [Jerome, Homilly 45, p. 338]

"And the angels, the children of heaven, saw them and desired them [handsome and beautiful daughters]... and they descended into Ardos which is the summit of Hermon." [I Enoch 6:1-5, Charlesworth, Vol. I, p. 15]

        3.    Post-Flood Mount Hermon
"From ancient times the mountain was a place of worship, where the god H.[ermon] (perhaps called Baal-Hermon) was venerated." [Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Bible, "Hermon," p. 987]

"More than twenty temples have been surveyed on Mount Hermon and its environs. This is an unprecedented number in comparison with other regions of the Phoenician coast." [Freedman, "Hermon, Mount," p.159]
 

IV.    CONSIDER THE SYMBOLS

    A.    The Bee

        1.    Samson

And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion. And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating, and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat: but he told not them that he had taken the honey out of the carcase of the lion. Judges 14:8-9 [Judges 14:14]
        2.    The Merovingians
"Be Wise As Serpents revealed...how all the heads (presidents) of the LDS and RLDS [Mormons] have been descendants of the Merovingian dynasty, and they and the Masons have both used the Merovingian symbol the bee." [Springmeier, p. 80]
    B.    The Serpent

        1.    The Tribe of Dan

Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. Genesis 49:17
        2.    The Elders of Sion of the 33rd Degree
"...the text of the Protocols [of the Elders of Sion] ends with a single statement, 'Signed by the representatives of Sion of the 33rd Degree'." [Baigent, Holy Blood, p. 193]

"...the Symbolic Snake, by which we symbolize our people." [Protocols of Sion, p. 275]

    C.   The Unicorn

        1.    Mount Hermon/Sirion [Deut. 3:8-9]

The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.  He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. Psalm 29:5,6
        2.    Christ's enemies
Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion...Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. Psalm 22:12,13,21
        3.    The House of Stewart
"Scotland's Royal House of Stewart arose from a marital union of the hereditary lines of Jesus and his brother James -- springing from the Merovingians' own source on the one hand, and from the Celtic Kings of Britain on the other. The Stewarts emerged, therefore, as a truly unique Grail dynasty and have long been known as the 'House of Unicorns'...Along with the David Lion of Judah and the Franco-Judaic fleur-de-lys, the Desposynic Unicorn was incorporated in the Royal Arms of Scotland." [Gardiner, Bloodline, p. 315]
    D.    The Lion

        1.    The Tribe of Dan

And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan. Deuteronomy 33:22

And after a time [Samson] returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion. And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating, and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat: but he told not them that he had taken the honey out of the carcase of the lion. Judges 14:8-9 [Judges 14:14]

        2.    Christ's enemies
Many  bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion...Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. Psalm 22:12, 13, 21
        3.    Mount Hermon
Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards. Song of Solomon 4:8
        4.    The House of Stewart
"Scotland's Royal House of Stewart arose from a marital union of the hereditary lines of Jesus and his brother James -- springing from the Merovingians' own source on the one hand, and from the Celtic Kings of Britain on the other. The Stewarts emerged, therefore, as a truly unique Grail dynasty and have long been known as the 'House of Unicorns'...Along with the David Lion of Judah and the Franco-Judaic fleur-de-lys, the Desposynic Unicorn was incorporated in the Royal Arms of Scotland." [Gardiner, Bloodline, p. 315]
    E.    The Eagle

        1.    Tribe of Dan

"Dan's position in the journey was on the North of the Tabernacle, with Asher and Naphtali. The standard of the tribe was of white and red and the crest upon it an eagle...Jacob had compared Dan to a serpent. Ahiezer substituted the eagle, the destroyer of serpents, as he shrank from carrying an adder upon his flag." [Unger, p. 273]
        2.    Freemasonry
"... [priests] after the Order of Melchizedek ...were the immortals to whom the term 'phoenix' was applied and their symbol was the mysterious two-headed bird now called an eagle, a familiar and little understood Masonic emblem." [Hall, p. 108]

"...the two-headed eagle...is usually depicted in two colors of great mystical significance: red and white."  [Cirlot, p. 93]

    F.    The Fish

        1.    May be a symbol of the portion of Tribe of Dan which continued to live in the Mediterranean coastal territory.
            [See Section III.C.1].

"The relevant sea-lord was King Pallas...whose symbol was a fish...the fish was an emblem of the Merovingian along with the Lion of Judah." [Gardiner, Bloodline, p. 175]


V.    CONSIDER THE SIN

    A.    False gods

        1.    Micah's idols

And these went into Micah's house, and fetched the carved image, the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image. Then said the priest unto them, What do ye?...And the children of Dan set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land. And they set them up Micah's graven image, which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh. Judges 18:18,30-31
        2.    The golden calf
Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan. And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. I Kings 12:28-30
        3.    Baal
And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baalhermon and Senir, and unto mount Hermon. I Chronicles 5:23
"The Canaanites worshiped Baal as the god of rain and thunder, and sexual orgies were enacted to provoke his presence in the land." [Butler, p. 1164]
        4.    Astarte/Asherah/Ashtaroth
"Astarte was worshipped conventionally 'on the high places'; hills and mountains -- Mount Hermon, for example -- abounded with her shrines." [Baigent, Temple & the Lodge, p. 126]

"Fortunately, a stone image of Asherah has survived...found in ruins of Dan, where the golden calf was worshipped in what is now northern Israel, [which] dates from the eighth century B.C.E. The Goddess strongly resembles her neighboring deities Anet, Astarte, Ashtaroth." [Johnson, p. 315]

    B.    False priesthood
And they said unto him, Hold thy peace, lay thine hand upon thy mouth, and go with us, and be to us a father and a priest: is it better for thee to be a priest unto the house of one man, or that thou be a priest unto a tribe and a family in Israel? Judges 18:19,30
And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi. I Kings 12:31
   C.    False Temple
    Then Jeroboam built Shechem in mount Ephraim, and dwelt therein; and went out from thence, and built Penuel. And Jeroboam said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David:
    If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
    Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
    And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi. I Kings 12:25-32
    D.   False Feast Dates
    And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
    So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Israel: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense. I Kings 12:25-33

According to Parker's Astrology, the Eighth Astrological House is October 24- November 22. Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign.

"To Dan was given the symbol of Scorpio, which, in the ancient Egyptian zodiac was a snake." [J.R. Church, Guardians of the Grail, p. 117]

"And perhaps there is significance in the fact that the Eighth House of astrology rules the mysteries of sex, death and rebirth -- and the occult." [Picknett and Prince, p. 204]
 

VI.    CONSIDER THE PLAN

    A.    Change Scripture

        1.    Confuse Mt. Sion/Mt. Hermon with Mount Zion at Jerusalem

In the KJV, the Old Testament contains only 2 renderings of Mt. Sion, which is Mt. Hermon. [Deut. 4:48, Psalm 65:1]  However, the Septuagint changes all of the Hebrew spellings of "Zion" to the Greek "Sion". The lack of distinction between Mount Hermon and Mount Zion creates confusion.
In the Strong's Concordance, Zion and Sion are different words:

Deuteronomy 4:48 - ... even unto mount Sion, which is Hermon... [KJV]

#7865 Siy'on {see-ohn'} from 7863; n pr mont AV - Sion 1; 1 Sion = "lofty" 1) another name for Mount Hermon

Isaiah 33:20 - Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem... [KJV]

#6726 Tsiyown {tsee-yone'} the same (regularly) as 6725; TWOT - 1910; n pr loc AV - Zion 153, Sion 1; 154 Zion = "parched place" 1) another name for Jerusalem especially in the prophetic books

"The Prieure de Sion by its very name appears to be associated with Mount Zion. However, the Rock of Sion is spoken of in Masonic rites of the eighteenth century. It seems that the Masons gave another significance to the Rock of Sion, other than that which indicates the sacred mount situated south of Jerusalem." [Van Buren, p. 136]

"In Celtic, Zion means Mount of Stone or Fortress. Huge monoliths and piles of stones were positioned to form circles. The latter were called Si'un or Caers and were placed on top of hills or mounds... On May-eve and November 1st the Druids built great fires on the Zions, so that for miles around the flames on the top of the mound could be seen by the people... The Chief Druid stood in the centre of the circle during the service that approached a large central stone which was called...the Stone of the Covenant... In Ireland it was called Bethel, the house of God." [Van Buren, pp. 142-43]

        2.    Change location of God's holy mountain/seat from Jerusalem to Hermon

Psalm 68

15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.

16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in forever. [KJV]

Compare: "A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; a mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan." [NASB]

Psalm 48:2 - Beautiful for situation...is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. [KJV]

Compare: "Beautiful in elevation...is Mount Zion in the far north, The city of the great King." [NASB, RSV, NRSV]

"...my eyes can scarcely withdraw themselves from [Mount] Hermon soaring on my right hand. The expression in Isaiah v.26 occurs to me with added meaning. The Great Illumer describes Jehovah seated yonder on that lookout, from which all Palestine is clearly spread before the eye." [Robert Morris (founder of the Eastern Star), Freemasonry in the Holy Land: A Narrative of Masonic Explorations Made in 1868, in the Land of King Solomon and the Two Hirams, p.537]

    B.    Change the site of the Transfiguration from Mount Tabor to Mount Hermon
When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?...And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. Matthew 16:13; 17:1
"According to an old tradition, the scene of the Transfiguration was Mount Tabor." [Eidersheim, p. 92, note 1]

"There can be no doubt that one of the southern peaks of Hermon was the scene of the Transfiguration."  [McClintock, p. 209]

"It has been widely held that the Hermon region was the scene of our Lord's transfiguration." [Unger, p. 555]

"Aleister Crowley...taught that the Great Work [is] the 'transformation of humanity'...we are told that the Great Work 'may only be begun in the spring, under the signs of Aries, Taurus, and Gemini...it was May 1st when the ancient druids honored their great Sun God and Goddess with an uninhibited festival complete with initiations, sex orgies, drunken revelry, and human sacrifice." [Marrs, p. 230] [See Section VI.A.1]

    C.    Change the location of the early Church from Jerusalem to Dan/Caesarea Philippi
When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?...And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:13,18

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect... Hebrews 12:22-23

"We ought also...to mention the...Druses -- so-called worshipers of the devil, established in the mountains where numbers of Judeo-Christians took refuge in the first centuries of our era. The image of a serpent appears, sculptured upon the portals of their sanctuaries; and their doctrine contained a good deal of Gnosticism." [Doresse, p. 316]
    D.    Rebuild the Temple of Pallas in opposition to the rebuilt Temple of Jerusalem
"The earliest writings about this society, which was known as the Brotherhood or the Order of the Rosy Cross, began to circulate in Europe around the year 1605. They were contained in a manuscript called The Restoration of the Decayed Temple of Pallas and provide the earliest known constitution of the Order." [Howard, p. 44]
    E.    Change perception of the Antichrist from Jewish to Gentile race [in order to portray the Pope as Antichrist]
Daniel 11:37 - Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers... [KJV]
And he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers...[ASV, NASB, NIV]

He shall give no heed to the gods of his fathers...[RSV]

And he shall not regard any gods of his fathers ...[Septuagint]

    F.    Change genealogy of the Messiah from the Tribe of Judah to include the Tribe of Dan
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. Revelation 5:5

"Samson in some respects was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the tribe of Dan." [Yair Davidy, "Dan"]

    G.    Change perception of the European nobility from Jewish to Gentile.
"There was a very great 'Jewish' component among the Sicambrian Franks/Merovingians and, because they practiced polygamy (another Merovingian peculiarity) they left a great number of offspring. These aristocratic Merovingian children married into almost all of the noble families of Europe during the 5th, 6th, and 7th Centuries. This has prompted more than one historian to suggest that the foundation of European nobility is Jewish!" [Bradley, p. 180]

“The work of...Jews smuggled as ‘Fifth Column’ into the bosom of the Church of Christ was made easier through the hypocritical conversion to Christianity or that of their forefathers. In addition, they laid aside their Jewish surnames and took on very Christian names, which were embellished with the surnames of their godfathers. Thus they were successful in mixing with the Christian society and taking possession of the names of the leading families of France, Italy, England, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Poland and the other lands of Christian Europe. With this system, they were successful in penetrating into the bosom of Christianity itself, in order to destroy it from within and to destroy the core of the religious, political and economic institutions.” [Pinay, p. 237]
