Before we get into the sick, depraved, perverted and satanic activities going on secretly (and in some cases, not so secretly) in Hollywood and other cities of power and propaganda in the world, we must first give praise and glory to our Heavenly Father and His Blessed Son, Jesus Christ, through Whom is salvation and grace. His mercy and forgiveness is still available to all of those dark ones in Hollywood who have hidden the filth of their lewdness under their collective harlot skirt, thinking that no one sees them. Well we have news for you: the Supreme King of Kings sees every sick, twisted and perverted thing you’re doing behind the closed doors of your mansions, offices and parties and He is continually displeased and is exposing your evil in part now, and in full when the Two Witnesses make their appearance, which is coming very, very soon as you can see from the world’s armies moving in the Middle East, particularly Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and other ancient places. The tentacles of Hollywood even stretch to the so-called terrorist groups Al Qaeda and ISIS, who are doing the satanic bidding of the highest circles of power in the West, particularly Washington and Hollywood. Nothing done in the dark will stay in the dark; it always comes to light. Hallelujah. Glory be to God in the highest!

Satanic Grammys

To the sickest of the sick power brokers in Hollywood, the Lord has allowed us to see much of what you are doing behind your closed doors. You are truly sick and twisted in your depraved behavior. There is nothing left to the dark imaginations of man that you have not done. You have found creative ways to commit abominable and even unspeakable acts. You have truly polluted every city you have committed your filth in more than any pollution could have caused.

You have become a haunt of demons, allowing sick old men to blow the backs out of young boys, you sick ones. Some of these boys have bled from internal injuries. How sick can you get. You think that homosexual sex with young boys releases a certain energy that can increase your success and wealth! You are demon-possessed and either don’t know it or don’t care. You turn out everyone so that they act on their newfound demonic urges. They seek out progressively worse porn, anything depicting the worst sex, violence and torture. Many of these who decide to go on to become big celebrities are so terrified by the demonic spirits you conjured up around them with your sorceries that they don’t want to own mirrors because they see the demons manifest when they look in mirrors. To soothe your rape victims, you take them on shopping sprees and exotic trips in private jets. But your filth always accompanies you, no matter where you go in this dark world of yours.

You encourage violence of every kind, including violence against women by men who hate women because they have gay urges. You even have prostitution rings that specializes in hiring women (and men) to suffer physical and emotional abuse, even to the point of bruises and blood and confidential hospital visits! You don’t even get turned on unless violence is involved. What hypocrisy as many of you donate to feminist and liberal causes.

Although the Bible is clear about having sex with women on their periods, you have created sex agencies that specializes in procuring women on their cycle, and some of you even like to drink this blood (called “vampiring”). Feces and urine are also part of your sick lusts, you demonoids.

You have created a prostitution mill where young actors with dreams of making it big instead get turned out into the sickest forms of fornication ever devised. Some women get so worn out that they have to either wear diapers or due to such internal organ damage and the resulting failure, had to go on dialysis just to live.

Strip clubs have become your daughters, you mother of harlots. Famous Hollywood celebrities team up with major sports stars to indulge in sick fantasies in the VIP rooms of these clubs, engaging in anonymous raw sex. PEDs and other sports scandals should be the least concern of parents whose children look up to these sick perverts.

It’s interesting how some powerful celebrities are being raked over the head with coals for their sins once they fall out of favor with the powerful, yet far, far worse and horrible things are going on in Hollywood involving children whose parents look the other way while the darkest and sickest old men have their sexual way with the children, passing them on to other perverts.  This is one sin the Lord hates above most others, and He clearly said it would be better if someone tied a boulder around your neck and tossed you into the sea than to face the Lord’s wrath on the last day.

Many of you claim to be liberals outwardly, but secretly are extremely racist and sexist (but liberal or conservative, they still commit the same filth). You continually lie to the public with your rants, you hypocrites.

You have influenced or required those who want to make it big in Hollywood to pledge allegiance to Satan, even having Satan parties where you celebrate your dark lord with cakes, food dedicated to Satan and wearing black robes with hoods or other black wear. You make newbies sign agreements not to tell the public because you know exactly how sick and twisted you are with your devil worship and fornication. You enjoy the roughest forms of sex with the same sex and with animals, and you encourage the young and vulnerable to participate. Even strippers and prostitutes who you bring to these parties and events are sickened by what they witness. Do you not think the Lord sees all this?

Male celebrities with the most masculine personalities are the most sick as they enjoy having their backsides “blown out” or having rough guys perform fellatio on their genitals. Even married men indulge in these sick and perverted acts against nature. Female celebrities are no different, and require lesbian sex and favors for young women trying to hit it big. Well known and powerful rappers and rock stars with tough-guy mentalities seek out orgies with harems of girly men and manly men all over the world. Do you not think the Lord sees what you are doing in jet set places like Dubai? Some women also like to have their backsides blow out in the filthiest ways, and even with random strangers in the seediest places. STDs seem to just be the necessary cost of doing business in Hollywood, yet your PR people spin the stories so that the public thinks these are other diseases instead of AIDS and Herpes. How many of the 10 Commandments have you not broken?

You love money so much that you don’t mind taking out a contract hit on your top musicians and actors in order to cash in on their celebrity after death, and most likely, you make more money on “key man” insurance that businesses take out on key employees in case they die. Is there any limit to your love of money, you perverse ones of Hollywood? Jesus Christ warned you that the love of money is the root of all evil, but instead, you find new and imaginative ways to love money.

You make sure everyone who comes to Hollywood has dirt on them, including drugs and perverse sex and other lewd habits. You love to video record them for blackmail purposes.

You court the powerful of Washington and other political capitals around the world because they use you like a pimp uses a whore. You play the whore with political powerbrokers, giving them propaganda in exchange for money and prostitutes (male and female). You even have various kinds of pedophilia rings where you sell young boys and girls to the sickest power brokers known to mankind.

You have an underground market for extremely violent porn movies where the innocent are literally killed during rough sex. You charge money to the sick and powerful who seek out snuff films. How sick and perverted can you get?

Outwardly, many of you claim to not be homosexual, but almost all of you indulge in some form of this abomination. Some of you even say anti-gay slurs publicly, but secretly love male-on-male or female-on-female flesh interaction of the worst kind. The men enjoy the oral sex of male escorts or trannies because their jaws are stronger than females. How sick! You blind hypocrites. Even certain so-called gospel and Christian singers run to Hollywood to indulge their anti-Christ sexual fetishes and fantasies, even the married ones. Have you no shame in shaming the Lord your God who you sing about? You are the worst of them because you indulge sick fantasies secretly yet lead the world to believe you’re Christian. Did not your Lord Jesus Christ warn you that the punishment will be most severe for those who claim to be leaders in the Church but in fact lead others to wickedness and lawlessness? Repent immediately!

No one who goes into your Hollywood ever comes out the same. They become twice a child of Hell after Satanwood spits them out, you brood of vipers. You have promoted the worst forms of sodomy and perversion, and have encouraged the normalization of sodomy into marriages of perversion, something not even the very corrupt Sodom and Gomorrah in all their wickedness ever did. You and your demonic cohorts are paving the way for the last great sin that the Lord calls the abomination that causes desolation: the rebuilding of God’s Temple in the resurrected Old Jerusalem with Satan in the Holy of Holies where God’s Holy Spirit is supposed to dwell! Once you and your sick co-conspirators carry out this great sin, you will have plunged the world into the count down to the appearance of the Two Witnesses and the Great Tribulation, and you will not survive God’s wrath.

But there is still hope for you as the Age of Grace is still here, but time is fast running out. No matter how deep and dark your sin is, and you in Hollywood have the deepest and darkest sins, you can be rescued from your sick habits before it is too late. Just get on your worn out knees and ask the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness right where you are. No time for hesitation. Say the Lord’s prayer (it’s in the Bible).


The Mark of the Beast is Probably Already Inside You

Greater Israel: In modern terminology, the term “Greater Israel” is meant by some to be the borders of modern Israel plus the Palestinian territories. Others use the term to refer to the land promised Abram in Genesis 15:18-21: “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” This map is a general depiction of the land promised to Abram’s (Abraham’s) future Hebrew nation.

There are some big misunderstandings about the Bible, particularly when it comes to understanding the concept of Israel. A misunderstanding of this very issue can be the difference between Christians, the “very elect,” being unknowingly deceived into receiving the mark of the beast. Many Western Christians, especially too many evangelicals, confuse the Israel of the Bible with the current, very secular and non-Christian nation called the State of Israel. A quote from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during a keynote speech at the new “In Defense Of Christians” organization’s dinner in Washington DC in September 2014, sums up this misconception:

Ted Cruz

“I told the attendees that those who hate Israel also hate America,” Cruz said. “That those who hate Jews also hate Christians. And that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ. These statements were met with angry boos. I went on to tell the crowd that Christians in the Middle East have no better friend than Israel. That Christians can practice their faith free of persecution in Israel. And that ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, along with their state sponsors in Syria and Iran, are all part of the same cancer, murdering Christians and Jews alike. Hate is hate, and murder is murder.”

Of course, any Christian who hates any group of people is not practicing the Christian faith, but in this context, Cruz is singling out the Jewish people and Israel for a very different purpose. Notice he says “That those who hate Jews also hate Christians. And that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ.” Here, he is in jeopardy of adding to the Bible, because hating the policies of a country in this world does not violate Christian teaching at all. Cruz was referring to those Christians in the audience who booed his unwavering, one-dimensional support of the State of Israel. In his words, he does what many evangelical Christians do: confuse this current nation of Israel with the ancient Israel of the Old Testament. Recently, many evangelical churches have been hosting pro-Israel speakers in the pulpit who slam Islam yet worship the State of Israel, repeating the false notion that those who curse Israel will be cursed by God.
Is this true? Let’s look.

One of the pillars of this strange state worship of today’s Israel is the gross misinterpretation of the Book of Revelation when it speaks of the 144,000 Israelites the Lord has reserved to be free of the sins of this world. Notice Revelation says that only 12,000 of these are of the tribe of Judah (Jews as they are commonly called for short). So how do only 12,000 Jews suddenly become 144,000? Through deliberate and spiritually dangerous deception. Some Israel state worshippers claim that all of the 144,000 Israelites are Jews because it is an allegorical number, not a literal number. But what verse in the Bible says this number is not literal? Also, there are far more than 12,000 Jews who live in the State of Israel, so even using this flawed interpretation, most of the Jews in Israel who are not the 144,000, are then not blessed. See how erroneous this line of thinking can get when you abuse the meaning of the Bible?
The fact is, only the Lord God knows exactly who the 144,000 descendants of the Israelites are, and only 12,000 of them are Jews. Moreover, these 144,000 Israelites are dedicated followers of Jesus Christ and are awaiting His return and will not receive the mark of the beast. The official religion of the State of Israel is definitely NOT the Christian faith. There should be no confusion here.
In Genesis, God is so pleased with Abraham that he blesses Abraham and promises that even more blessing await his descendants. But who are his descendants? Here’s yet another point of confusion among many Christians and even Jews. Israel is a descendant of Abraham, but Abraham is not a descendant of Israel. Thus, the blessings to Abraham’s seed applies to all of his descendants, not just the descendants of Israel.
So who are all of the physical descendants of Abraham?
The reality is that no one alive today knows except God! It is probably true that every race of man today has Abraham’s blood running in them. But as Paul tells us, we should avoid getting bogged down in endless genealogies. John the Baptist further tells us in Matthew 3:9 the following:

“And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”
Why did John say this? Because being physically born into a family or race is not the point of life. Being spiritually reborn as the spiritual seed of Abraham through Jesus Christ is far more important and necessary for everlasting life!
Let’s not stop there. Let’s go into a verse that most evangelical Christians strangely dare not venture into for fear of being considered anti-Semitic and anti-Israel: John 8

31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 49Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. 50And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. 52Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? 54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: 55Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying. 56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. 57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Notice in the lengthy bible quote above that Jesus Christ speaks a duality regarding Abraham being their physical father vs Abraham the spiritual father. Too many Christians miss this important point. Jesus acknowledges they are the physical descendants of Abraham, but that’s nothing. He focuses on the fact that they are NOT the spiritual descendants of Abraham, which is far more important. So why would God just bless the wicked ones among Abraham’s descendants? Jesus said either you are for Him or against Him and clearly there are those among the Jews who do not support Jesus Christ in any way. The blessings are of a spiritual nature and are for those who do the works of Abraham, as Jesus says. The works of Abraham are the same as the works of the Christian faith, for God is the same yesterday (when Abraham was alive), today and forever.
Was Jesus being hateful in speaking to certain Jews in such a strong manner? Of course not! Among the Jews were certain ones who themselves were dedicated to lawlessness and were part of a secret scheme to overtake the Roman Empire and establish a new kingdom with them ruling from behind the scenes. This last conclusion might surprise many who have been taught a very watered down, filtered, propaganda view of history. But Jesus Christ Himself already gave us the biggest clue with the Parable of the Tenants and the Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds (Tares).

Furthermore, the Book of Acts is basically the story of certain Jewish leaders leading a systematic, city by city persecution of the Early Church by stirring up the citizens and local leaders against the apostles and disciples. This is the spirit of antichrist at work, the same spirit that will lead the world to accept the mark of the beast. The same spirit that would mislead people into faulty interpretations of the words of Jesus and His Apostles, including the Wailing Wall when Jesus clearly said that no stone of the Temple in Jerusalem would be left standing. The same spirit that will then build on that deception and entice the faithful to believe in the Antichrist as Jesus Christ (even using a decoy antichrist before unveiling the real Antichrist). So we must be careful when studying the Bible.

The 2nd Temple during the Roman Empire era

The Book of Hebrews was an attempt to help regular Jews bridge the gap between the Old Testament era and the New Testament era faith. All of this was done in a loving way to actually help Jews see the truth about why God blessed Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the Israelites in general, that it was not based on something as simplistic as being born physically of these great men of faith, but that the spiritual works that pleased the Lord were the things He wanted them to embrace. But if after hearing all of this, some Jews do not want to embrace the faith of Jesus Christ, then that’s ok. We still must love them anyway, but that does not mean that we worship the State of Israel, which is unfortunately based on stealing land from others already there and implementing a hateful system of racism against those same people.

The blessings of Israel in the Old Testament are for those who do the spiritual things that the great men of faith in the Old Testament did, not their bodies or race. Christians must remember that our kingdom is not of this world, that we are just strangers here until the New Jerusalem is revealed. The Jerusalem in the State of Israel today is not this New Jerusalem! So if it is not the New Jerusalem, why is it called Jerusalem? That’s the biggest clue as to the real purpose of this nation. We must not favor any nation. We are only tasked to love our fellow man, regardless of who they are and what they believe. Stay awake, Church!

Church Stay Awake! We’re Still in a World of Hate!

Church Stay Awake! We’re Still in a World of Hate!

Too many Christians have been lulled into a false sense of security and trust:

We blindly trust our governments, courts and law enforcement infrastructures without question

We blindly accept the reports of mainstream news media as gospel truth

We are blind to the important events in Jerusalem because of our reliance on the mainstream news media for our facts, and especially the next temple where the abomination that causes desolation will be set up

We have allowed secularized school systems to blind us to the truth of what really happened in history, especially with the world’s glamorized, cosmetic watering down of the horrors of the revolutions that trampled Christian-based monarchies in the West and East (and Islamic monarchies in the East)

We refuse to know the real truth about the satanic World Wars, which were Zionist machinations

We are too dismissive of a growing acceptance of the most detestable sins since the dawn of civilization

We don’t test the spirits like the Bible warns us

We don’t qualify people we accept in our inner circles based on whether they are for or against Jesus Christ

We have allowed the spirit of divide and conquer to isolate us instead of uniting us

We think that there is peace in the world when there is not

We don’t study and pay attention to ALL of Jesus parables and their hidden meanings, which warns of exactly what’s going on in the world and in prophecy

We no longer believe in the miracles of Jesus Christ

But a few of us still believe and are vigilant, and for such, we need to keep nudging our fellow asleep Christians and have them put on the armor of God before the new wave of sadistic persecutions catch us unaware and asleep!

Ever Wonder Why Ezekiel Saw a Vision of Jewish Women Weeping for Tammuz in God’s Temple?

Unfortunately, too many Christian sermons ignore very vital, crucial prophecies in the Bible that is effectively putting many Christians asleep – something Jesus Christ warned us about many times. In Ezekiel chapter 8, the reader is guided by the Lord with Ezekiel as a proxy to show us how Mystery Babylon the Great was taking shape in the Lord’s Temple in Judah. One of the more curious abominations that causes desolation that the Lord is warning us about is the following:

13He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

14Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

[Ezekiel 8]

Who is this Tammuz and why are the women weeping for it? And why is the Lord angry about it? The answer can get pretty detailed, but it is generally agreed that the weeping most likely is the Greek god Adonis or Egyptian god Osiris (who is popular among the new world order crowd today).

From the secret abominations of the chambers of imagery, the prophet’s eye is turned to the outer court at the north door; within the outer court women were not admitted, but only to the door.

“Thammuz next came behind,
Whose annual wound in Lebanon allured
The Syrian damsels to lament his fate
In amorous ditties all a summer’s day;
While smooth Adonis from his native rock
Ran purple to the sea, supposed with blood
Of Thammuz yearly wounded: the love-tale
Infected Sion’s daughters with like heat;
Whose wanton passions in the sacred porch
Ezekiel saw, when, by the vision led,
His eyes surveyed the dark idolatries
Of alienated Judah.”

what Ezekiel saw corresponded to the Adonis festivals. It may be enough to state, without going into the details of the story, that Adonis, the beautiful youth beloved of Aphrodite, was slain by a wild boar; that after his death he was allowed to spend six months of each year with her, while the other was passed with Persephone in Hades. The cultus thus became the symbol of the annual decay and revival of nature; but the legend rather than the inner meaning was in the thoughts of the worshippers. The emotions of women poured themselves out in lamentations over the waxen image of the beautiful dead youth who had perished in his prime, and in orgiastic joy over his return to life.

“I have seen (says he), in Byblus, a large temple of Venus Byblia, where they performed the rites unto Adonis, and I was a spectator of them. The Byblians say the affair relating to Adonis (or his death) by a boar happened in their country; and, in memory of it, every year they beat themselves, lament and offer sacrifice, and great mourning goes through the whole country; and when they beat themselves and mourn, they sacrifice to Adonis as dead; but the day following they pretend he is alive; and they shave their heads, as the Egyptians do at the death of Apis;”

and indeed it is thought by some that this Tammuz is the Osiris of the Egyptians; the same with Mizraim, the first king of Egypt, who, being slain in battle, his wife his ordered that he should be worshipped as a god, and a yearly lamentation made for him; and indeed Osiris and Adonis seem to be one and the same, only in different nations called by different names. Mention is made in Plato (d) of Thamus, a king that reigned at Thebes over all Egypt, and was the god called Ammon; no doubt the same with this Tammuz; and who is here called, in the Syriac and Arabic versions, Thamuz or Tamuz; he seems to be the same with Ham; and Egypt was called, the land of Ham, Psalm 105:27; and it is most probable the Jews borrowed this piece of idolatry from the Egyptians their neighbours; with whom they were now very familiar, and from whom they expected help against the Chaldeans; but as there were such shocking obscenities used in this idolatrous service, it is most amazing that the Jewish women, who had been instructed in the law and worship of God, should ever go into it. Gussetius (e) thinks that Bacchus, the god of wine, is meant; and gives several reasons for it; and among the rest observes, that in the fourth month, called Tammuz from him, the vine was forming in ripe grapes; near the beginning of a fifth month, it was pressed out, and tunned up; and by the next month, having done fermenting, it was stopped up, which represented him buried; and for which the weeping was in this month.


In verse 14, Ezekiel expresses his “dismay” at yet a greater abomination: “women . . . weeping for Tammuz.” This is another pagan practice, a very sexual one involving ritual prostitution. Ezekiel saw them involved in a rite in which they were mourning the death of a Mesopotamian god whose myth said he was resurrected to new life, a mockery of the redeeming death and life-giving resurrection of the true Son of God. This vision reveals that paganism had deeply affected the women in Israelite society as well.

Tammuz (Syriac: ܬܡܘܙ; Hebrew: תַּמּוּז, Transliterated Hebrew: Tammuz, Tiberian Hebrew: Tammûz; Arabic: تمّوز‎ Tammūz; Akkadian: Duʾzu, Dūzu; Sumerian: Dumuzid (DUMU.ZI(D), “faithful or true son”) was the name of a Sumerian god of food and vegetation, also worshiped in the later Mesopotamian states of Akkad, Assyria and Babylonia.

In Babylonia, the month Tammuz was established in honor of the eponymous god Tammuz, who originated as a Sumerian shepherd-god, Dumuzid or Dumuzi, the consort of Inanna and, in his Akkadian form, the parallel consort of Ishtar. The Levantine Adonis (“lord”), who was drawn into the Greek pantheon, was considered by Joseph Campbell among others to be another counterpart of Tammuz,[1] son and consort. The Aramaic name “Tammuz” seems to have been derived from the Akkadian form Tammuzi, based on early Sumerian Damu-zid.[citation needed] The later standard Sumerian form, Dumu-zid, in turn became Dumuzi in Akkadian. Tamuzi also is Dumuzid or Dumuzi.

Beginning with the summer solstice came a time of mourning in the Ancient Near East, as in the Aegean: the Babylonians marked the decline in daylight hours and the onset of killing summer heat and drought with a six-day “funeral” for the god. Recent discoveries reconfirm him as an annual life-death-rebirth deity: tablets discovered in 1963 show that Dumuzi was in fact consigned to the Underworld himself, in order to secure Inanna’s release,[2] though the recovered final line reveals that he is to revive for six months of each year (see below).

In cult practice, the dead Tammuz was widely mourned in the Ancient Near East. Locations associated in antiquity with the site of his death include both Harran and Byblos, among others. A Sumerian tablet from Nippur (Ni 4486) reads:
She can make the lament for you, my Dumuzid, the lament for you, the lament, the lamentation, reach the desert — she can make it reach the house Arali; she can make it reach Bad-tibira; she can make it reach Dul-šuba; she can make it reach the shepherding country, the sheepfold of Dumuzid”O Dumuzid of the fair-spoken mouth, of the ever kind eyes,” she sobs tearfully, “O you of the fair-spoken mouth, of the ever kind eyes,” she sobs tearfully. “Lad, husband, lord, sweet as the date, […] O Dumuzid!” she sobs, she sobs tearfully.[3]
