Part 25 - Rochester, NY - From out of Gates, Greece Came Forth

At the conclusion of the previous post I made an observation that seems to validate the esoteric interpretation of Plutarch's description of voyages, that the Great Lakes area had been visited by the ancient Greeks who somehow set it apart for a future people and purpose. The modern Greek state was first recognized in 1828 and established in 1830, following the successful uprising against Ottoman rule that had begun in 1821. At that very time, towns and villages in Upstate New York had been springing forth bearing the names of the cities, city/states and islands of ancient Greece. This phenomenon might easily be dismissed as a meaningless trend, as most are prone to do, but taken in the context of the supernaturalism featured in this blog series it appears to be further evidence of the influence of the ancient gods that is attested to perhaps most evidently by the statue of Hermes exalted over the city of Rochester, NY.

To understand what Y'shua, the revealer of secrets, is opening to us about these matters it's necessary to find the right "dots" and rightly connect them, so we get the picture. If what is drawn looks like the work of Picasso, we don't yet have it right. When the drawing becomes more and more plain and details are filling in according to the exact patterns revealed elsewhere, we know we're getting it right, and that the Lord is fulfilling His word to us, who need this confidence in discerning His plan in this critical season.

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
Luke 8:17

Consider some regional history, all of which is easily documented. What is perhaps most telling is the fact that Rochester actually borders a town named Greece, and they are of a common meaningful derivation!

"The Town of Gates was organized in 1797 as Northampton in Ontario County. In 1808 the town was subdivided and the part still called Northampton was renamed the Town of Gates and incorporated on April 1, 1813 in honor of General Horatio Gates. Parts of the town were later detached to form the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece, both of which now border the town." (Gates, New York - Wikipedia)

Geographically, Greece, Rochester and Gates are connected. You can get from Rochester to Greece through Gates, and from Greece to Rochester through Gates, and directly too, of course.

The namesake of the town of Gates offers a remarkable witness.

"General Horatio Gates defeated British forces in the 1777 Battle of Saratoga, widely regarded as a turning point in the Revolutionary War. He went on to serve in the New York State Assembly around the turn of the century. The town of Gates was named after him when it was incorporated on April 1, 1813." (Horatio Gates - RocWiki)

The meaning of the name "Horatio" is "hour, time". "Horatio Gates" = "time gates" Think about it. This is a parable. Did the ancient Greeks come to Rochester long ago to establish "Horatio Gates," time gates or dimensional portals? Consider the further relevance of how the man played a key role in a revolution, a rebellion against divinely appointed governing authority, and that he, himself, was later assigned as a regional governing authority. Doesn't this speak to you about the purpose and function of the gates connecting the ancient time and gods of Greece with Rochester, NY in these last days?

The Town of Greece that is now a contiguous suburb of Rochester was established in 1822. Rochester was established with the name of Rochester a year later, in 1823, the most significant year in the development of the Erie canal, a waterway that is so tightly bound to Rochester's identity, growth and influence. Both Greece and Rochester were brought forth from out of Gates. Give some thought to what that suggests. Consider it as a parable.

That both Greece and Rochester emerged from Gates speaks to me of how "The area was anciently set apart for coming generations in the great human experiment of the democratic commonwealth." (The Secret Destiny of America) Whatever gates or inter-dimensional portals exist in the area must have been established by the ancient Greeks of record, quite possibly demi-gods or the gods themselves who were declared to dwell upon the heights of Mount Olympus. By way of these supernatural gates, the region is bound to the ancient gods and so dedicated to their worship and service! Doesn't this offer a fit explanation for the landmarks, objects and events addressed in this series?

The namesake of the city of Rochester reveals yet another parable. Here's one account of the city's origins, from History of Rochester, New York - Wikipedia.

"On November 8, 1803, a 100 acre tract in Western New York along the Genesee River was purchased by Col. Nathaniel Rochester, Maj. Charles Carroll, and Col. William Fitzhugh, Jr. (1761–1839), all of Hagerstown, Maryland. The site was chosen because of three cataracts on the Genesee, offering great potential for water power. Beginning in 1811, and with a population of 15, the three founders surveyed the land and laid out streets and tracts. In 1817, the Brown brothers and other landowners joined their lands with the Hundred Acre Tract to form the village of Rochesterville. By 1821, Rochesterville was the seat of Monroe County. In 1823, Rochesterville consisted of 1,012 acres (4 km2) and 2,500 residents, and the Village of Rochesterville became known as Rochester. Also in 1823, the Erie Canal aqueduct over the Genesee River was completed, and the Erie Canal east to the Hudson River was opened."

The name "Rochester" means "stone camp or fortress." A city by this name exists in Kent, England, whose name comes from "Roche" (French), "a rock," and from "chester," from the Latin "castrum", "a city or castle." The meaning of the name Nathaniel is "God has given," or, "gift of god." If the supernatural reality behind the town of Gates is as "Horatio Gates," is the supernatural reality behind the city of Rochester as "Nathaniel Rochester"? If the region generally associated with this name is a stone camp or fortress given by god/God, what I've referred to in the context of the "blood sealed vault of Cthulhu" (Part 17) must be given serious consideration! A coming execution of judgment upon the world, including Rochester, is prophesied to be attended by the release of ancient brings who are presently bound under the surface of the earth.

"The spirits of the giants ...shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; until they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction."
Enoch 15:9-10

"Other places in the Bible such as Job 26:5 may agree with the idea of a Luciferian power that can, under some circumstances, return Rephaim from the underworld to physical bodies known as Nephilim. "Dead things are formed from under the waters…" Job says. The dead in this text are Rapha (Rephaim) and the phrase "are formed" is from "Chuwl," meaning to twist or whirl as in a double helix coil or genetic manufacturing. The startling implication of this and similar texts is that beneath the surface of earth, agents of darkness wait the moment of their return." (READ IT BEFORE IT'S BANNED BY THE US GOVERNMENT - PART 21 by Tom Horn)

Rochester is not known for any particular stone castles or fortresses. To consider Rochester as a stone fortress we have to consider what's unseen, underground. It's not uncommon to use caves and caverns as natural fortresses. The nature of the battlefield in Afghanistan provides a current example. Because a fortress or castle is constructed with secure containment in mind, the more successful designs have come to feature multiple concentric barriers that establish layered zones of protection. Many include subterranean compartments, tunnels and access to caverns. Is there a secure underground compartment hidden away out of sight in the Rochester area where the giants of Noah's day might be bound? It seems possible, and more and more probable to me. If there is a supernaturalism binding Greece and Rochester by some "Horatio Gates" construct, I have to consider how the evidence suggesting the opening of a time-release gateway (from what I've already presented in this series) in the not so distant past suggests the potential for yet another time-release opening, of some seal on a subterranean vault, releasing Rephaim/Nephilim at the prophesied end of their season of binding.

The Jinni

There is a class of beings associated with caves, the jinn. The jinn, or, djinn, are also known as genies, and one singular jinn is a jinni. Rochester is widely known for its Genny (Genesee Brewing Company beers and ales) and its Jenny, an early biplane designed and built by Glenn Curtiss in nearby Hammondsport! Although most will see no connection between the jinni, Genny and Jenny beyond merely sounding alike, there may well be a supernatural reason for Rochester's linguistic identification with jinni.

The legendary jinni is a supernatural creature that occupies a parallel world to that of mankind. According to the Occultopedia "Jinn" page, the fallen Watcher Azazel was a Jinn. The jinn are mentioned frequently in the Qur’an. The people of Oman believe jinn live in their caves. The winged genie is a motif in the Iron Age art of Assyria. Some popular literary works involving these creatures are One Thousand and One Nights and The Fisherman and the Jinni, plus there are spin-off productions like Disney's Aladdin.

"The mythical world of the Basques is peopled by genies or divinities that take on the shape of animals or of half human beings who live inside caves."
(The Basque People)

The word "jinn" is derived from the Arabic root j-n-n meaning "to hide" or "be hidden." The Curtiss Jenny received its moniker due to the JN of its JN-4 designation. Genny beers and ales are made by the Genesee Brewing Company, immediately downstream from High Falls.

"The Genesee Brewing Company was founded in 1878 from the Rau and Reiskey brewery. The early brewery was successful because of its high falls location and the use of caves dug in the rocks, to help keep the beer cool without refrigeration." (Genesee Brewing Company - RocWiki)

The brewery's name was recently changed to High Falls Brewing Company (2000-2009) but is now back under the Genesee name. You may recall from other posts how "High Falls" references the fallen angels and there's an easily recognized occult gateway on nearby State Street. Did you note how "Genny" was kept in caves? The name "Genesee" is derived from the Seneca language and originally meant "good valley" or "pleasant valley." Jinnistan is where jinn live, according to Persian legend, the chief province of which is the Country of Delight. At some point, any reasonable consideration of this collection of facts has got to rule out random coincidence.

Interpreting the parable of "Nathaniel Rochester" suggests the stone fortress is somehow a gift of God or a god, or both. Given how Rochester has in times past been renowned for great good and great evil, it seems to me that this region may become a refuge for a protected people in days to come, servants of the Most High God. I can't say with authority at the present time that Rochester truly is a stone camp or fortress of one kind or the other, or, for that matter, of both kinds or neither. The circumstantial evidence and what insight I believe I have received thus far suggests that Rochester is involved as a significant Mystery Babylon location and that it's a gateway used by the ancient gods, and that it's somehow related to the binding and loosing of Nephilim by way of the supernaturalism of magickal ritual from ancient times past. Are fallen angels akin to Azazel dwelling in some kind of subterranean stone fortress in Upstate New York? If so, it will soon enough be manifest.

New York resembles Greece

At this point, I'm going to offer a survey of some of the local communities that bear the names of ancient Greece. Before I conclude, I'm going to show how Hermes is further revealed in this as the god or prince of Rochester. Notice how these (excepting Corfu and Arcade) were established just prior to 1830, when the modern state of Greece was recognized.

Corfu, NY (50 miles WSW of Rochester) is a village named after the Island of Corfu that was incorporated in 1868.

Arcade, NY (74 miles SW of Rochester) was established in 1807 as the "Town of China." The name changed to Arcade in 1866.

I was raised in Macedon, NY (20 miles ESE of Rochester), named after the ancient kingdom of Macedon (also known as Macedonia) in northern Greece. This was the birthplace of Alexander the Great. The namesake for the region was Makedon(Macedon), a mortal demi-god who, according to Hesiod the poet, was a son of Zeus and Thyia. The first officially recognized settlers arrived in 1789, and it was established as Macedon in the same year Rochester was officially established, 1823. Macedon, NY is a canal town, formed out of the nearby canal town of Palmyra.

Palmyra, NY (24 miles ESE of Rochester, established under this name in 1796) was named after an ancient city in Syria. Although that city isn't generally associated with the Greek Empire, it does bear features that distinctly point to the worship of the Greek gods. "The most striking building in Palmyra is the huge temple of Ba'al, considered "the most important religious building of the first century AD in the Middle East". It originated as a Hellenistic temple, of which only fragments of stones survive. The central shrine (cella) was added in the early 1st century AD, followed by a large double colonnaded portico in Corynthian style." (Palmyra - Wikipedia) Just south of Palmyra, NY, the Joseph Smith farm and the Hill Cumorah are found. A statue of the "Angel Moroni" is on top of that hill, as an exalted subregent.

The city of Syracuse, NY (87 miles E) is the largest city in Central New York. Another canal town, its namesake is the Greek city and province on the island of Sicily in southern Italy. Ancient Syracuse was founded by Corinthians, and allied with Sparta and Corinth. In ancient Corinth, honor was particularly given to Aphrodite, Apollo, Poseidon and Zeus, and, in ancient Syracuse, to Apollo and Zeus. Syracuse, NY had been known by several names before being officially incorporated in 1825. It was Corinth in 1817, but the name was changed when the US Postal Service rejected their application for a post office. A Corinth, NY Post Office had already been established in 1818 in Saratoga County.

Ithaca, NY (90 miles SE) is named for the Greek island. The village was incorporated in 1821, distinguished from its parent town of Ulysses, the Latinized form of the Greek Odysseus from Homer's Odyssey. According to legend, the ancient Ithaca was home to Odysseus and his wife Penelope. Penelope, according to some accounts, later bore a son with Hermes in Arcadia.

Ithaca is notably different in character politically (left-wing) and culturally from surrounding communities. The following are mostly as extracted from Wikipedia. Ithaca is host to the Namgyal Monastery, the North American seat of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. Ithaca is commonly listed among the most culturally liberal of American small cities. The Utne Reader named Ithaca "America's most enlightened town" in 1997. According to ePodunk's Gay Index, Ithaca has a score of 231, versus a national average score of 100. In its earliest years during frontier days, what is now Ithaca was briefly known by the names "The Flats" and "Sodom," the name of the Biblical city of sin, due to its reputation as a town of "notorious immorality". Nearby Robert H. Treman State Park features Lucifer Falls. The Ivy League Cornell University's early nickname was "the godless university," due at least in part to their lack of affiliation with organized religion.

Troy, NY (230 miles E) is on the Hudson River, a natural part of what became the great canal system. Troy was named in 1789 for the famous home of the Trojans of Greece, where lived the legendary beauty, Helen.

Athens, NY (255 miles ESE) as a village was incorporated in 1805, and as a town formed in 1815. Like Troy, it's on the Hudson River. A now defunct ferry was portrayed in the 2005 film "War of the Worlds," when alien Martian tripods attack the town and ferry with its refugees from New York City attempting to flee across the Hudson.

Sparta, NY (45 miles S) was established in 1789. It's not on the canal system.

Attica, NY (47 miles SW) as a town was established in 1811, and as a village was incorporated in 1837. It was named for the region in Greece that contains its capitol city, Athens. Like Corfu and Sparta, it's not on the canal system. The Attica Correctional Facility is famous for the deadly prison riot of September 13, 1971.

Arcadia, NY (34 miles ESE) is perhaps the most interesting of the Greek named cities, towns and villages listed here. The Zurich Bog is the lowest point in the town and a registered national landmark. It was known to the natives as the "Bottomless Pit." It has been recorded that Hermes was born at Mount Kyllene (Cyllene) in Arkadia (Arcadia). It is also recorded that Hermes learned from the Thriae the arts of fortune-telling and divination. In 1848, in the town of Arcadia, NY on Hydesville Road, the Fox sisters introduced in America what is known as Spiritualism. Note that it was from a place known as Hydesville, like "hides"-ville, that unseen forces were declared to be brought forth from the hidden realm, and this was actually a deception, hiding the true nature of the activity. Hermes is also known as a trickster, and many years later the Fox sisters confessed to the fraudulent nature of their activity. (Our day: a record and review of current reform, Volume 2 edited by Joseph Cook, Hazlitt Alva Cuppy) Margaret Fox (Kane) and her sister Kate admitted fraud, yet there really are authentic mediums (including the biblical witch of Endor plus Jane Roberts (who channeled "Seth") and Chip Coffee, both of Elmira, NY).

The area was first settled around 1791. The Town of Arcadia was formed from the Town of Lyons in 1825. More weirdness came forth in 1986 from Lyons and other locations around the county when a horror movie was filmed popularizing a local legend, the Lady in White. I remember hearing tales of the lady in white when I was in High School.

"Lady in White is a 1988 American horror film of the ghost/mystery genre. Much of the film was made in Wayne County, New York, taking advantage of appropriate local color. The movie is based on the story of The Lady in White who supposedly searches for her daughter in Durand-Eastman Park in Rochester, New York while protecting young women who are on dates with their boyfriends." (Lady in White - Wikipedia)

Back to the big city, in the heart of downtown Rochester there was a Corinthian Street. Midtown Plaza with its Clock of Nations was built on that very location, eliminating the street. (ROCHESTER'S HISTORY ~ AN ILLUSTRATED TIMELINE) As I mentioned earlier, in ancient Corinth, honor was particularly given to Aphrodite (who bore four children with Hermes), Apollo, Poseidon and Zeus. Had there been some supernatural connection established on that spot? Here's an image of a Hermes coin from Corinth, which seems appropriate given how Midtown Plaza was all about commerce and the sex magick of the god of commerce.

The compilation of facts, no matter how extensive or relevant will never convince the blind of anything, but those who recognize the artifacts of supernaturalism may perceive the influence of the ancient gods in the region. What Rochester was, is and will be seems quite significant.

More coming, Lord willing!
