Series: The Cult of Gaia | Part 1 | Who Is The Goddess?
Background Information & Definitions
In this new series we are going to talk about the Cult of Gaia. First let’s define “Gaia” and who she is. You’re probably aware of the term “Mother Earth”, this term is much more common when referring to the female aspect of the earth than “Gaia” which had fallen into disuse for some time but is again returning to popular usage not only among proponents of the New Age, but also surprisingly, the Environmental Movement which we will get more into in Part 2: The Modern Cult of Gaia. Gaia has ancient roots, she is an incredibly old goddess and she has many names so it can get confusing, but that is an incredibly common feature of the gods and goddesses of old. She is a pagan archetype of life itself, a symbol of female regeneration and new birth, the harvest and sustenance.
Another thing that we need to keep in mind is that oftentimes a god or goddess can be one in the same. They can be referred to in either the male aspect or the female aspect. A good example is Gaia herself who is also Cernunnos (the Green Man and the Stag which we will touch on in another post), Asherah, Ashur and Ba’al among others, all are the very SAME false god; sometimes depicted in the female aspect/goddess form, and sometimes in the male aspect/masculine form. We can discern what they truly are behind the facade by the fruit they bear and the character they display.
Who is She?
So who is Gaia? She is an ancient Greek earth goddess, earth mother and mother goddess. She has much in common with the Roman goddess Venus who herself was likely an adaptation of a much older and ancient goddess (just as Gaia likely was), the idols of which have been found strewn all over Europe and Eurasia and throughout time itself. Below are a few examples of these small idols:
~ Venus’ Idols
Gaia is often depicted as a voluptuous pregnant woman and with that understanding I’m sure you’re beginning to see the resemblance she bears with the Venus Idols above.
~ Pregnant Gaia
Gaia is also depicted as the root/source of a “tree of life” rooted within the earth or simply as the earth pregnant with child as seen below:

Breaking Down the Images & Who Gaia Really Is
In Christian exegesis as well as eschatology, we know that there were two trees in the midst of the garden; one was the Tree of Life (Jesus Christ) and the other was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (the Devil himself, the Dragon, the Serpent). Since the Devil wants to be like the Most High, we know that the “tree of life” depicted with Gaia is both a misnomer and a counterfeit of the true Tree of Life who is Jesus Christ, the Word, the true and only legitimate Logos. The counterfeit is the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, Gaia’s tree which grows out of the earth (that the Devil currently has dominion of). Notice the tree of knowledge of good & evil has opposites merged into one body, good and evil, I expect we will talk about that a lot in future posts. I do cover it some in the Series: The Feasts of the Damned | Part 1 | Spring Feasts so if that piques your interest, you may want to read about the fused god in that article.
There are also two kinds (archetypes) of women depicted in the scriptures, one is righteous and godly, (God’s Church/Saved Israel) the other is a complete inversion of her; an evil woman who hates God and hates God’s people, the Jezebel spirit; the strange woman and the woman who rides the beast. She is the goddess and remember what I said earlier about gods and goddesses sometimes being one in the same? Satan himself is depicted as a male/masculine figure in the scriptures, but we also can conclude from scripture that he is the fused god, good and evil; but consider Baphomet, who is the symbolic likeness of Satan, he is fused male/female, man/beast, light/darkness in one body which we will discuss in a future post. He is a fused god, he is confusion itself. Con = with and fusion = the process of joining two or more things together to form a single entity resulting in synthesis (i.e. androgyny. Ever wonder why the transgender movement is pushed SO hard when they represent less than 1% of the population? We will talk about that in Part 2). We know from the scriptures that God is not the author of confusion so when there is confusion, you can be sure it is the Dragon who is behind it.
Further, we know that there were two women who are depicted as pregnant or in travail with a promised or prophesied seed/child; one was the true child of promise, Jesus Christ, and the other is the counterfeit, the man of sin which is still to come that is said to be stuck in a pit inside the bowels of the earth and who is waiting for that pit to be opened. The child that Gaia is pregnant with and she will bring him forth in thick darkness. Do you see the difference between the two women and the child of promise and the child of destruction? One is a child of Heaven and of God himself and the other is a child of destruction, a child of this world which Satan has dominion of until the harvest.
Adam forfeit the deed to the earth and thus his dominion of it when he fell into sin in the garden. The New Age calls this child of destruction which is to come the “Logos” and “The One”; a foul mockery of Christ, again making it clear who their true master is, the great imitator which turns things upside-down, everything he does is a complete inversion of what God himself does, plans or provides. Christians are able to discern this because we know who the true Logos (Word) is and the counterfeit betrays itself by its very nature and character because he comes in his own name, not in the name of the LORD.
The Cult of Babylon: Gaia’s Origins
Back to Gaia for a moment, what are her true origins? The scriptures tell us that all false religion proceeds from Babylon. The scripture also tells us that there are only two religions in the world, the pure religion of Jesus Christ, grace thru faith, and the religion of lies & works (which seeks to convince men that works save), the master of which is the Devil himself; the father of lies who told Eve in the garden that man would become as gods if they ate the forbidden fruit, implying that God was hiding some “secret knowledge” from them that would equalize them with God. What the Serpent told Adam & Eve in the Garden was also a prophecy of sorts. If you’re curious about what I mean by that, start on the Series: Transhumanism | Part 1 | End of the Age. Men are only and ever were *only* saved by grace thru faith, even in Old Testament times. Noah by faith built the ark and was saved. Abraham by faith offered up his son and it was counted to him as righteousness.
Back to the cult of Babylon, from which all false religion proceeds, if we go back to the Tower of Babel back in Genesis 11 which you can read here, you can see that when God came down and saw the city and the tower that the children of men were building, that he split the tongues that they may not understand one another’s speech so that they would leave off building the city and the tower that was to reach to heaven.
We aren’t exactly sure what that means except that men sought to extend themselves into the heavenly realms in a fallen state, but it was certainly threat enough of disaster that God actually intervened and not only split the tongues, but it was in that period of time, in the days of Peleg, that God split the land mass of the earth as well and men were scattered throughout the land after their families and after their tongues; scattered abroad upon the whole face of the earth which is what they were attempting to avoid by building this “tower to heaven” and the city in the plain of Shinar.
It was this dividing of tongues which caused a fracture in the cult of Babylon, it broke into nearly a hundred pieces as every man in his own family now had to communicate the rites and rituals of the cult of Babylon in a new tongue, the cult divided into many different renditions of the exact same false religion, simply told from different perspectives, languages and unique cultures. We can see that clearly in the striking similitude of these gods and goddesses the world over which simply isn’t a coincidence.
Each family took away a piece of the ancient Cult of Babylon which was nothing more than a counterfeit of the only true and pure religion that God set forth from the start (faith), and the counterfeit was taught to the children of men in the antediluvian era via the actions and teachings of the fallen angels and their seed on the earth (See Genesis 6) they are enemies of God, and their lies and exploits are the basis for every myth/ology that’s endured through the ages and every cult that has ever been practiced.
A Little Background on Gaia’s Mythology:
“Gaia or Gaea, known as Earth or Mother Earth (the Greek common noun for “land” is ge or ga). She was an early earth goddess and it is written that Gaia was born from Chaos, the great void of emptiness within the universe, and with her came Eros. She gave birth to Pontus (the Sea) and Uranus (the Sky). This was achieved parthenogenetically (without male intervention). Other versions say that Gaia had as siblings Tartarus (the lowest part of the earth, below Hades itself) and Eros, and without a mate, gave birth to Uranus (Sky), Ourea (Mountains) and Pontus (Sea).
Gaia took as her husband Uranus, who was also her son, and their offspring included the Titans, six sons and six daughters. She gave birth to the Cyclopes and to three monsters that became known as the “Hecatonchires“. The spirits of punishment known as the Erinyes were also offspring of Gaia and Uranus. The Gigantes, finally, were conceived after Uranus had been castrated by his son Cronus, and his blood fell to earth from the open wound.” (Source: “Gaia.” Encyclopedia Mythica from Encyclopedia Mythica Online.<http://www.pantheon.org/articles/g/gaia.html>.)
So as we can see, she has quite an interesting history and from my own perspective, I believe that these “myths” are real events that will take place on the earth wrapped in an ancient and timeless symbolism which is increasingly used today. See Part 2 of this series to learn more about what I mean by that as we will slowly train your eyes to see that the symbols of these eventualities are in TV commercials, company logo’s & brands as well as music and entertainment all over the world.
The Days of Noah & Lot
The scripture says that the giants were the result of angels who had left their first estate and took wives of the daughters of men both because they found them beautiful and also because they wanted children (and a fit extension into the world of men) which is not permitted of the angels of heaven according to the scriptures. These giants were the result of these unions and many in the Church seem to completely gloss over many of the bizarre things that are recorded in the pages of Holy Writ. Genesis 6 is where you will find the record of these things happening and its significant to note that this was the reason for Noah’s flood, as everything corrupted its ways upon the earth and God had had enough.
It’s also significant to note that Jesus himself said that when he returned, it would be as in the days of both Noah and Lot. I think it’s safe to say that we have entered into that period of time in the end days when very bizarre things will again happen on the earth. It has already begun and it will hit this world like a raging tempest. Right now we only hear whispers of the abominations being created in secret, but soon, it will all come out into the open and the world will again be corrupted beyond redemption as in the antediluvian age. King Solomon said that the thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun. So we have to ask ourselves, is it time to take another look at the scriptures with fresh eyes and understanding in light of what we are seeing on the earth in our generation? I encourage all of you to look into these things yourselves.
With the discovery of CRISPR-CaS9 which now allows for cheap and easy DNA manipulation and editing, it’s safe to say we will see some pretty bizarre abominations on this earth before the end. I urge you to keep up to date with new technologies that are breaking onto the scene more quickly than ever before, much of which I will begin tracking on this site. There is an article about DNA & The Word Made Flesh on the site which you may find great value in and it’s a much shorter article that packs a punch.
As we move forward back into the past, time itself feels as if it is speeding up in rapid cadence as we draw near to “The Singularity” which we will talk about more very soon. As noted above, we have started writing another Series where we break down transhumanism, what it is and why it’s gaining popularity and we will break down what the Singularity is in Part 2 of that series if it interests you.
You’re probably thinking, so what? What bearing does the Cult of Gaia have on world affairs today? Well, now that we have some background information, we can begin to get into its modern variation(s) in Part 2 of this Series on the Cult of Gaia. Stay tuned for the second part of this series.
Every cult in the world ties into the Cult of the Harpy, the harpy is the devil himself in the female aspect, he is androgyny. That is why we have chosen that name. I hope that this in depth background on the cult of Babylon which Satan has always been the master of will make it easier to understand the parallels within the modern rendition(s) of the Cult of Gaia which are forthcoming and how that relates to the End Times Church. If we know our enemy in every form that he takes, we can become more offensive with spiritual warfare in the days before our Messiah appears.
May the Lord Bless and Keep You All. Amen.
