Crown of Thorns, Nails (Symbols of the Passion)

 

As symbols of the Christian faith, the Crown of thorns and the three nails of the crucifixion are emblematic of the passion- the suffering and death of Jesus. According to biblical accounts, the crown of thorns mocked Christ’s claim to the throne of David.

 

The nails, of course, refer to the nails of the crucifixion. Nails are sometimes worn by modern Christians as an alternative to the crucifix, although some evangelical Christians view the nail as a symbol of the Devil.

Curiously, the symbolism of the three nails arrayed as pictured above pre-exists Christianity; it is found occasionally on amulets to solar deities and may have once had a different meaning.

the 3 nails are symbols of Vav, the 6 letter of Hebrew Alphabet. This letter symbolizes the sexual power in occult world and the nail of connection in real world. It is a symbol of the errected penis of man. The 3 powers that interact are our 3 androgenous streams, the positive and negative stream, testosteron and estrogen that light the fire of Kundalini, the sexual fire within the neutral stream, our spinal cord that connects the stones, our sexual organs, to the brain, the holly elder one. The connection takes place trough the beard of the prophet which is our main spinal nerv cord in the spinal column. This 2 power streams within the neutral stream are simbolized by the 3 nails, the 3 V, vvv or www. Yes I know, life is tricky, and in the Apocalypse od St John, the female Uterus, it is is said; it is a number of mankind and a number of the biest, and his number is 6 and double 6. thus 6 as neutral and 66 that light the firecolums of Moses before and after the people of Israel.
This streams, called spiritual extasy, or shorted SEX, can be used for God’s procreation or for the devils games of Lust, That is why it is mankind and Biestlike.
So, keep the 3 W, your parents of creation, in respect and do not missuse them, keep the dragon, that symbolizes the union of the 3 nails for crucifying the Christ, thus for procreation only, not for pleasure and lust. But, as usual, i preach to the walls, hahahaha.
Take care, and know yourself first before you forge an opinion on others. Truth is painful, but pain lasts a moment, pride is forever.
Samael Ben Sabbathai, e.g. Lou, Rabbi of Kabbalah.
