The Jews called Jerusalem their Holy city because it was a sacred site of moon worshipers. Salome is named after the Greek moon Goddess Selene and so the name Jerusalem means ‘the mountain of the moon’.(Jeru meaning mount in Hebrew) This is also what the name Mt Sinai means as Sin was the name of the Babylon moon God.
This means that Jerusalem and Mt Sinai, where Moses went to communicate with God, are devoted and dedicated to the worship of the moon God and goddess and not the competing sun God that the christian church later switched to. This was seen, for instance, when they declared that God’s Holy day was to change to Sunday instead of Saturday and when they declared that God was all on his own and that he had no wife or female spouse.
The moon goddess was also known under several different regional names as Ishtar, Diana, Artemis, Astarte, Isis and these queens or goddesses were worshiped because the moon was thought responsible for fertility of people, animals and plants. The mount or mound or Salome was also considered to be the equivalent to, or to represent, the mound of Venus – from which all life springs.
As Jerusalem was named after her it means that she was performing the role of the goddess, high priestess or the spiritual guardian of the city. It would therefore be Salome’s role to officiate at all major events that occurred in Jerusalem and this explains why the Bible says that there was a lady called Salome that attended the crucifixion of Jesus.
As the goddess it was her role to perform the annual sacred marriage between the goddess and the king, which was the long held custom of the time which was established by the religion of Ishtar and Babylon
This sacred marriage and feast was described in some detail in the bible. It says that Herod offered her half his kingdom after she danced for him, but all she asked for instead was the head of John the Baptist on a platter. The reason why Herod was so generous to Salome is because he knew that she could ask for his head on a platter instead of John the Baptist and it would have to be delivered. Offering half of his kingdom is acknowledging that he was regarding her to be the equivalent of his wife.
The beheading or sacrifice of John the Baptist was considered to have all the spiritual benefits as the churches say the crucifixion of Jesus had – such as appeasing God who said he wants blood sacrifices in order to save the world from sin.
The Bible does not say whether the head of John the Baptist was eaten at the feast as part of a cannibalistic Eucharist rite, but it could have been – just as Jesus said he wanted his body to be eaten and his blood to be drunk..
The second to last chapter of the Bible starts by saying “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
This quote is clearly not referring to a city of bricks and stones as the churches try to claim to try and hide that this was referring to the sacred marriage between God and the goddess Salome. This sacred marriage was considered essential for without God’s marriage to the goddess, God would be impotent and would not be able to claim or sit on his throne.
This is why God’s Holy temple was built in the Holy city of Jerusalem because God was thought to be a lover or worshiper of the moon goddess Salome and he wanted or needed to be near her. The word ‘Holy’ being a reference to her life giving female ‘hole’ or genitals.
