As a flag exalted on a pole identifies the owner or territorial authority, so it is with the images adorning pagan high places. Who rules over Rochester, N.Y.? Who's the boss? When the landmark and skyline imagery of Rochester is considered its testimony is found to be consistent with everything else I've noted in this blog series. The inaudible but eloquent witness declares that this city and region compares to the gateway to High Falls, making provision for it long before the constructs I photographed on State Street took form.
The two most recognizable historic landmarks on the skyline are in seen in this photo above. The statue of Mercury or Hermes on the right was introduced in part 1 of this series. The landmark on the left is known as the "Wings of Progress" featured atop the Times Square Building. Both of these are readily identified as pagan images of fallen angel gods.
The story behind the design of the "Wings of Progress" is that the architect Ralph T. Walker conceived it in the 1920s while he was walking on a beach. Apparently, he found four seashells that suggested to him "a sense of flight .....a sense of upward lift." Comparing this to the nearby seashell water tower construct on the High Falls Garage honoring Aphrodite, a common source of inspiration seems apparent.
The Gothic Revival style entrance to that garage was brought to my attention during the recent "Amish Barn Stars and the mysteries of Gothic architecture" post. The Art Deco Times Square building (architects Voorhees, Gmelin and Walker) upon which the "Wings of Progress" rest is a stylized Gothic cathedral. This pagan temple honors the god identified by the wings. It looks to me like the inspiration for Gotham City, the iconic fictional Batman hero's dark domain.
The detail of the "Wings of Progress" and supporting structure reveals a complexity far beyond the simple seashell, pointing us toward the four winged angelic class known as Cherubim.
In the book of Enoch, in the 20th chapter, several holy angels who watch are identified. In the seventh verse we read, "Gabriel, one of the holy angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim." Because of the second commandment of the famous 10 (which you should be getting very familiar with by now), "any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above" made as a representative symbol is an idol. The entity so honored and worshiped is then not such a Cherub who remains faithful under Gabriel's command but rather one who fell and is under anothers command. It is such as that Cherub who rules over the city, according to the evident witness of the pagan high place. The symbolic imagery is named the "Wings of Progress" and we are seeing where Rochester is today, spiritually, for all of its industry. Progress is perhaps the identity of the regent spirit, and/or, perhaps, an Aphrodite alias.
There's a notable "synchronicity" involving the Times Square building. Its cornerstone was laid on October 29, 1929, the very day the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began. Because the building was that of the bank, Genesee Valley Trust Company, and located at the corner of Broad and Exchange Streets, some see this as a fascinating bit of irony. I believe irony does not go nearly far enough in describing how the two events are connected. Irony suggests coincidence. There is a conspiracy in the heavenly realm that most fail to recognize. The evidence of that conspiracy is recognized when the Lord opens the eyes and exposes Satan's schemes manifesting in the earth. New York City is a primary Babylon. Rochester ranks second among cities to that Empire City in the Empire State. Consider it as something of Babylon Junior.
It may be that a famous Art Deco style building on Riverside in Manhattan, N.Y. is related. On the day before the stock market crashed, this article was published covering this remarkable building's dedication celebration. Art: Roerich's Shrine - Monday, Oct. 28, 1929
The building is 29 storys tall. Right. 1929 - 29 stories tall. It was dedicated to Nicholas Roerich. Roerich images are pictured in this mosaic above, with Master Building in the background, on right. Note the triple helix DNA symbol "banner of peace."
The building and its cornerstone (laid 6 months before the stock market crash) have some very unique and significant features. The building is said to symbolizes "growth," comparing to the "Wings of Progress" on the Art Deco building in Rochester. If the name "Nicholas Roerich" doesn't mean anything to you, you're missing some really important historical background. I first heard of him through Chris Pinto's excellent documentary, Eye of the Phoenix: Secrets of the Dollar Bill. (See Tournament of Shadows: The Great Game and the Race for Empire in Central Asia By Karl Ernest Meyer, Shareen Blair Brysac -- Awaking the Latent Energies oft the Master Building from New York Peace Monuments Related to Nicholas Roerich)
Another building in Manhattan, N.Y. with the same graduating colors as the Roerich Master Building (from deep purple to a yellow-white) was built in 1929. This 20 story building at 55 Central Park West was completed in 1930, the first "fully Art Deco" structure on the street. It's now known as the Ghostbusters Building because it was featured in the movie Ghostbusters (1984). If you have seen the movie and recall the role that buildings architecture played in the invocation of the demonic authorities, you have an idea about what Roerich's Master "Growth" Building and Rochester's Times Square building with its "Wings of Progress" are about. There's something planned like the hot date scheduled between the gate keeper and the key master. :( Notice the Gothic style Holy Trinity Lutheran Church to the left of the Ghostbusters Building, which probably lent some "inspiration" to the area.
(While I'm on the 1929 theme, I should mention how the movie "9" from 2009 leveraged the Ghostbusters ectoplasm imagery. It's all related.)
It occurs to me that, back when I used to be "normal," the things I'm writing here would have seemed laughable and quite preposterous. Yet, there was no bliss in my ignorance. Having my eyes opened is only a blessing - a HUGE BLESSING! Thank you Lord!
More to come - Lord willing!
