People have titled me ‘The Reluctant Messiah’. This morning I learned this was a title Jonah owned. Jonah is Dhun-Nun ‘Son of the Fish’. Nun is the letter N in the Hebrew alphabet. ISIS has been marking the doors of Christians in Iraq with a N so they may know death. But, they shall know Jonah, who some say dies in the belly of a fish, and on the third day, he arose. I am Jonah. I have come to save the Christians of Iraq, and no other Christians for they have not repented of the sin of Slavery as I bid them to do throughout this blog. I will save the Christian Children who have been taken slaves by ISIS. I have opened the tombs of the dead who have arrived to Judge the living Beasts of Hell, and cast them down into a fire – after they have been branded. For every N they did make, a living Saint has risen.
I come with my banner on a pale horse. My banner is the Shroud of Turin. Note the strange energy that dances in my long Nazarite hair, like angel hair. This is the energy that made the image on the sacred cloth of my ancestors. Over the head of the man on the cloth, the Sword of Justice brands the letter in Jonah’s Name. I am bringing The Sword!
I have traced my Rosamond/Rougemont ancestors to the Knights Templar. On this day I found the Knights of Jonah who will destroy the destroyers of Jonah’s Temple. We will rebuild the temple they tore down and place within the Throne of the Messiah.
Come to the Rose Mountain!
JoN SoN of the Fish
This is the arabic letter “nun,” the first letter in the word “Nazarene.”
In Mosul, Iraq, it has been painted on doors to identify the homes of Christians who are then brutally beaten and often executed.
A militant Sunni organization known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been steadily attacking cities and communities in north and northwestern Iraq since June. The attacks have divided Iraq along religious and ethnic lines.
On Friday, July 18, ISIS issued an ultimatum to the Christians of the city of Mosul, which it captured more than a month ago: convert to Islam, pay the jizya (a tax on non-Muslims), or be killed.
“They control the city and I think they made it very clear that there is no place for non-Muslims in the city,” Archbishop Warda said.
The cross a top the city’s Syriac Orthodox cathedral was removed. Thousands of Christians have fled the country.
Bashar Nasih Behnam, 52, spoke with the Guardian about the last Christians remaining.
“There is not a single Christian family left in Mosul,” Behnam said. “The last one was a disabled Christian woman. She stayed because she could not get out. They came to her and said you have to get out and if you don’t we will cut off your head with a sword. That was the last family.”
In a move of solidarity with our persecuted brothers and sisters, many Christians are changing their facebook and Twitter profile pictures to this symbol.
Certainly a picture can never replace the power of prayer. But the symbol can serve as a reminder for us to pray for our fellow Christians in the Middle East and throughout the world who are suffering grave injustices because of their faith.
The Messiah – Heir to the Throne
In Aramaic, nun means “fish.” The mem, the waters of the sea, is the natural medium of the nun, fish. The nun “swims” in the mem, covered by the waters of the “hidden world.” Creatures of the “hidden world” lack self-consciousness. Unlike fish, land animals, revealed on the face of the earth, possess self-consciousness.
The souls of Israel divide into two general categories, symbolized by fish and land animals. The two prototypes of these categories are the leviathan and the behemot. In the present, these two categories of souls correspond to the two innate tendencies and attractions of the soul, to either the concealed and secret or revealed and legal dimensions of Torah. In the future, the two prototypes, leviathan and behemot, will unite in battle, each “killing” the “ego” of the other, thereafter to blend together in true union. Their “meat” will then be served as the feast for the tzadikim in the World to Come. The souls of the tzadikim will actually consume the very root of consciousness of our present level of soul, in order to integrate (“digest”) it into a totally new and higher level of consciousness.
“Leviathan” equals in gematria malchut, (“kingdom,” 496). In Kabbalah, malchut, in the world of Divine Emanation, is represented by the sea, whose tides are controlled by the power of the moon, the symbol of King David (upon seeing the new moon we say, “David the king of Israel is alive forever”). When malchut descends to enliven the lower worlds it is symbolized by the earth. Thus, the leviathan is the symbol of the Divine Source of “kingdom.” In Hebrew, nunmeans “kingdom,” and in particular, the “heir to the throne.”
The “nun” is the fourteenth letter of the alef-beit, which equals “David,” the progenitor of the eternal Kingdom of Israel. The heir to David is Mashiach ben David, of whom is said: “As long as the duration of the sun his name shall rule.” Our Sages teach us that one of the names of Mashiach is Yinon (“shall rule”), cognate to nun. Mashiach is also referred to as “the miscarriage,” or, literally, the “fallen one.” As we will learn in the secret of the letter samech, the nun does not appear in Psalm 145, but is supported by God’s transcendent mercy, as expressed by the following letter, samech. In general, nun corresponds in Torah to the image of falling. The soul of Mashiach experiences itself as continuously falling and dying; if not for the ever-present Hand of God “catching” it, it would crash to the ground and shatter to death. The consciousness of fall is the reflection of the egoless state of the fish, in its natural medium of water, when forced to reveal itself on dry land. This is like the experience of a hidden tzadik when forced from Above to reveal himself for the good of Israel and the world. We find this exemplified in the life and teachings of the Ba’al Shem Tov, and so will be epitomized in the life of Mashiach. Ultimately, the “destiny” of Mashiach and his generation is to assume the level of sea on earth, to experience, paradoxically, selfless-self-consciousness, as said in the verse of Isaiah with which Maimonides concludes his Code of Jewish Law (whose final section, “The Laws of Kings,” culminates with the description of the coming of Mashiach): “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God, like waters cover the sea.”
The image of the Nun is said to derive from an ancient hieroglyph of a serpent from the Egyptians (that old hieroglyph looks more like a Lamed to my eye, but nonetheless the Nun is related with the serpent). The word in Hebrew for serpent is נחש nahash, which begins with Nun.
As you know the serpent is a pivotal symbol in all religions, but especially Judeo-Christian. It is unfortunate that so many followers of religions are afraid of the serpent, and consider any appearance of a serpent to be evil. That is not religion, that is fanatacism. True religion is the knowledge that unites us to God, and the pivotal force that allows this to happen is Nun, the first letter of the Hebrew word for serpent: נחש nachash. In most cases, when you read in the scriptures about the serpent, you are reading about nachash. But sometimes, where in English the Bible says serpent, it doesn’t say נחש nachash in Hebrew. There are other words that you need to know. This is why the Hebrew letters are so important for us to study.
The book of Jonah (Yonah יונה) is one of the twelve minor prophets included in the Tanakh. According to tradition, Jonah was the boy brought back to life by Elijah the prophet, and hence shares many of his characteristics (particularly his desire for ‘strict judgment’). The book of Jonah is read every year, in its original Hebrew and in its entirety, on Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement, as the Haftarah at the afternoon mincha prayer.
Dhul-Nun (Arabic: ذو النون; meaning The One of the Whale). Chapter 10 of the Qur’an is named Jonah, although in this chapter only verse 98 refers to him directly. It is said in Muslim tradition that Jonah came from the tribe of Benjamin and that his father was Amittai. Jonah is the only one of the Twelve Minor Prophets of the Hebrew Bible to be mentioned by name in the Qur’an.
Jonah’s Qur’anic narrative is extremely similar to the Hebrew Bible story. The Qur’an describes Jonah as a righteous preacher of the message of God but a messenger who, one day, fled from his mission because of its overwhelming difficulty. The Qur’an says that Jonah made it onto a ship but, because of the powerfully stormy weather, the men aboard the ship suggested casting lots to throw off the individual responsible. When the lots were cast three times and Jonah’s name came out each time, he was thrown into the open ocean that night. A gigantic fish came and swallowed him, and Jonah remained in the belly of the fish repenting and glorifying God. As the Qur’an says:
So also was Jonah among those sent (by Us).
When he ran away (like a slave from captivity) to the ship (fully) laden,
He (agreed to) cast lots, and he was condemned:
Then the big Fish did swallow him, and he had done acts worthy of blame.
Had it not been that he (repented and) glorified Allah,
He would certainly have remained inside the Fish till the Day of Resurrection.
God forgave Jonah out of His mercy and kindness for the man, and because he knew that Jonah was, at heart, one of the best of men. Therefore, the fish cast Jonah out onto dry land, with Jonah in a state of sickness. God caused a plant to grow where Jonah was lying to provide shade and comfort for him. After Jonah got up, fresh and well, God told him to go back and preach in his land. As the Qur’an says:
But We cast him forth on the naked shore in a state of sickness,
And We caused to grow, over him, a spreading plant of the gourd kind.
And We sent him (on a mission) to a hundred thousand (men) or more.
And they believed; so We permitted them to enjoy (their life) for a while.
Jonah is also mentioned in a few incidents during the lifetime of Muhammad. In some instances, Jonah’s name is spoken of with praise and reverence by Muhammad. According to historical narrations about Muhammad’s life, after ten years of receiving revelations, Muhammad went to the city of Ta’if to see if its leaders would allow him to preach his message from there rather than Mecca, but he was cast from the city by the people. He took shelter in the garden of Utbah and Shaybah, two members of the Quraysh tribe. They sent their servant, Addas, to serve him grapes for sustenance. Muhammad asked Addas where he was from and the servant replied Nineveh. “The town of Jonah the just, son of Amittai!” Muhammad exclaimed. Addas was shocked because he knew that the pagan Arabs had no knowledge of the prophet Jonah. He then asked how Muhammad knew of this man. “We are brothers” Muhammad replied. “Jonah was a Prophet of God and I, too, am a Prophet of God.” Addas immediately accepted Islam and kissed the hands and feet of Muhammad.
One of the sayings of Muhammad, in the collection of Imam Bukhari, says that Muhammad said “One should not say that I am better than Jonah”. This is understood by both mainstream Muslims and historians to have been stated by Muhammad to emphasize the notion of equality between all the prophets and the law of making no distinction between any of the messengers. The Arab tribes of the time may have begun to exalt Muhammad above Jonah because of the recent revelation Muhammad received, which recounted the story of Jonah’s fleeing from his mission. Muhammad, by saying this, clearly made it a point to the Arabs to not make any distinction between the great apostles of God.
Tomb at Nineveh
At the present time, Nineveh‘s location is marked by excavations of five gates, parts of walls on four sides, and two large mounds: the hill of Kuyunjik and hill of Nabi Yunus (see map link in footnote). On Nabi Yunus there was a shrine dedicated to the prophet Jonah, which was revered by both Muslims and Christians, as it was believed to hold Jonah’s tomb. The Tomb of Jonah was a “popular place of pilgrimage for people who would come from around the world to see it, before the arrival of ISIS in Mosul”. On July 24, 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant destroyed the masjid containing the tomb as part of a campaign to destroy religious sanctuaries it deemed to be idolatrous.
Some believers claim that God, being omnipotent, altered things as needed and sustained Jonah – the same as in other miraculous accounts in the Hebrew scriptures. Other believers claim that Jonah died in the belly of the great fish, and was resurrected by God since Jesus himself associated this event in Jonah’s life with his own death and resurrection.[
THE MEANING OF “NINEVAH”
The name of the city that “Jonah” was sent to gives us one clue. The term “Nineveh,” actually NINEWEH, is derived from the same root as is the BEN NUN element of Jonah’s name. NUNU or NINU, in ancient Assyrian meant “fish,” just as it did in ancient Hebrew and Arabic. So, “Nineweh” really means “place of the fish.” It was called “the place of the fish” because it was the center of an ancient fish-god cult where the priests dressed themselves up in fish suits in order to perform their rituals.
Years ago I suggested Nazarite Queen Helena of Abiabene was the Sleeping Beauty Princess, Rosamond. I have found the remnant of the Nazarite church she founded in Iraq. The Church of the East has its roots in Adiabeni a place associated with the Magi – who followed a star!
ISIS has attacked the Church of the East and slaughtered members after spray-painting a N (for Nazarite) on their doors. My family history is being employed in regards to putting boots on the ground to fight ISIS. Benjamin Netanyahu just spoke on CNN, saying the U.S. should have left troops in Iraq. Why isn’t he insisting Turkey send tanks into Syria to crush ISIS?
Queen Helena and her Nazarite sons fought Rome for Zion, and lost. Zionist co-founded Israel. There is a Greater Battle coming, greater then all it’s divided parts.
It has taken me thousands of lonely hours to unearth that which has been buried. When all but one, deserted me, I knew the Truth was coming near.
Consider Mathew 27:53 and the saints that came from the tombs in Kidron Cedron) valley. Hermits and monks lived in some of these empty tombs. I suspect they were Nazarites who came out of seclusion and went into Jerusalem to deliver the final message. Judgment Day was nigh!
Come to Rose Mountain!
Matthew 27:50-54 (NIV)
(50) And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
(51) At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.
(52) The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.
(53) They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
(54) When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

Nun is thought to have come from a pictogram of a snake (the Hebrew word for snake, nachash begins with a Nun and snake in Aramaic is nun) or eel. Some have hypothesized a hieroglyph of a fish in water for its origin (in Arabic, nūn means large fish or whale). The Phoenician letter was named nūn “fish”, but the glyph has been suggested to descend from a hypothetical Proto-Canaanite naḥš “snake”, based on the name in Ethiopic, ultimately from a hieroglyph representing a snake,
As in Arabic, nun as an abbreviation can stand for neqevah, feminine. In medieval Rabbinic writings, Nun Sophit (Final Nun) stood for “Son of” (Hebrew ben or ibn).
In the game of dreidel, a rolled Nun passes play to the next player with no other action.
In August 2014, with the rapid and brutal advance of Islamic State (IS) in northern Iraq, a genocidal persecution of Iraqi Christians and Yazidis) has begun. As IS seized control of Mosul, Christians were given the choice of converting to Islam (pledging allegiance to the rule of IS and paying jizya or tax); to flee their homes, shops and belongings; or suffer death by sword. Thousands of Christians, Yazidis (who were given only the choices of conversion or death) and other, mostly Shi’a Muslims (whom IS consider to be apostate) have abandoned their longtime homes and land.
As a result, an international social media campaign has been launched to raise global awareness of the plight of the Mosul Christians making use of the letter ن (nun)—the mark that IS members sprayed on deserted Christian properties. Some Christians have changed their profile pictures on Facebook and Twitter to pictures of the letter ن as a symbol of support.  The letter ن, in relation to this social media campaign, is being called the “Mark of the Nazarene” from naṣrānī (نصراني; plural naṣārā نصارى), a normative Arabic term disparagingly used by IS to brand Christians.
