The Spiritual Battle Unveiled: Ishtar's Attempt to Overwhelm the Nation with Harlotry and Idolatry

Ishtar Spirit of Prostitution Attempting to Take Over the Nation

Hosea 2:6-8:
6 “Therefore, behold,
I will hedge up your way with thorns,
And [a]wall her in,
So that she cannot find her paths.
She will [a]chase her lovers,
But not overtake them;
Yes, she will seek them, but not find them.
Then she will say,
‘I will go and return to my first husband,
For then it was better for me than now.’

8 For she did not know
That I gave her grain, new wine, and oil,
And multiplied her silver and gold—
Which they prepared for Baal.

To bring Israel to repentance, God promised to set a hedge of thorns on the sides of her path, so that it would hurt whenever Israel went off the correct path, and so the wrong paths would be hard to find.

When God hedges our way with thorns, we usually don’t like it. We sometimes think God is against us when the thorns hurt and we can’t find the wrong paths. But it is really one of the sweetest expressions of God’s love to hedge up your way with thorns and to wall us in.

Even when Israel went after other gods, the Lord still provided for her. This showed His great, unselfish love to Israel. Even though Israel took what God provided and prepared it for Baal, He still loved them.

Hosea 2:8-10
8 For she did not know
That I gave her grain, new wine, and oil,
And multiplied her silver and gold—
Which they prepared for Baal.
9 “Therefore I will return and take away
My grain in its time
And My new wine in its season,
And will take back My wool and My linen,
Given to cover her nakedness.
10 Now I will uncover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers,
And no one shall deliver her from My hand

Hosea 2:14-15
Therefore, behold, I will allure her,
Will bring her into the wilderness,
And speak [a]comfort to her.
I will give her her vineyards from there,
And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope;
She shall sing there,
As in the days of her youth,
As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

Once Israel has felt the discomfort of her deprivation, then she will listen to the voice of God once again, and He will allure her back to Himself.

Spurgeon on I will allure her: “This is a singular kind of power: ‘I will allure her;’ not, ‘I will drive her’ not even, ‘I will draw her,’ or, ‘I will drag her;’ or, ‘I will force her.’ No, ‘I will allure her.’ It is a very remarkable word, and it teaches us that the allurement of love surpasses in power all other forces. That is how the devil ruins us; he tempts us with honeyed words, sweet utterances, with the baits of pleasure and the like; and the Lord in mercy determines that, in all truthfulness, he will outbid the devil, and he will win us to himself by fascinations, enticements, and allurements which shall be stronger than any force of resistance we may offer. This is a wonderfully precious word: ‘I will allure her.’”

It was the Baals, the idols of the nations, which wanted this “master-slave” relationship with man. But not the LORD God; He wants a love-based, commitment-based relationship with His people.

Hosea 2:17-20
For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals,
And they shall be remembered by their name no more.
18 In that day I will make a covenant for them
With the beasts of the field,
With the birds of the air,
And with the creeping things of the ground.
Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth,
To make them lie down safely.
19 “I will betroth you to Me forever;
Yes, I will betroth you to Me
In righteousness and justice,
In lovingkindness and mercy;
20 I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness,
And you shall know the Lord.

So when we ask God to do things, we already ask what He wants to do – so He will answer.

The earth shall answer with grain, with new wine, and with oil: When relationship is where it is supposed to be, God abundantly provides. This is the same principle Jesus taught in Matthew 6:33: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Think about it: Which one of the pagan gods of the nations ever wanted the love of their followers? Which of them ever asked, “Do you love me?” False gods don’t want our love, they want our fear, our obedience, our slave-like sacrifice and devotion. But the true God, the living God, isn’t satisfied with just our fear, our obedience, or even with our slave-like sacrifice and devotion. He wants our love, freely given and enjoyed in relationship with Him. If we miss this, we miss the heart of God’s work in us and for us.

Hosea 4:2-3  NASB 1995
2 There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery.
They employ violence, so that bloodshed [a]follows bloodshed.
3 Therefore the land mourns,
And everyone who lives in it languishes
Along with the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky,
And also the fish of the sea [b]disappear.

Hosea 4:11-12
1 Harlotry, wine and new wine take away the [a]understanding.
12 My people consult their wooden idol, and their diviner’s wand informs them;
For a spirit of harlotry has led them astray,
And they have played the harlot, departing [b]from their God.

The Hebrew word zanah, translated as "harlotry," is not the word used to indicate a single act of adultery. Instead, it means "sexually wanton," meaning something done repeatedly as a way of life. Ultimately, it is understood spiritually to signify idolatry. Hosea 4:11-12 defines it in this manner: "Harlotry, wine, and new wine enslave the heart. My people ask counsel from the wooden idols, and their staff informs them. For the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray, and they have played the harlot against their God."

By linking zanah, harlotry, with wine and new wine, God is showing that this spiritual harlotry has addictive power. "Enslave the heart" illustrates that this faithless spirit bends the heart to obey its desires, and in the process, it destroys discretion and understanding. Recall that Psalm 119 repeatedly states that meditating on God's Word and obeying His commandments give understanding, indicating a major way in which we come to know God. However, if a person practices faithlessness, loss of understanding results. No constructive wisdom ever results from breaking any of God's commands.

Spirit of harlotry, enslave the heart= battle for the soul of the nation, the soul and the heart are connected. 
It’s the spirit of harlotry that operated back in Hosea’s day that is active in enslaving this nation and completely attempting to shatter the bond and covenant it has with Almighty God.
Ishtar false goddess of love, fertility, and war.

Ishtar, (Akkadian), Sumerian Inanna, in Mesopotamian religion, goddess of war and sexual love.
Inanna[a] is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess of love, beauty, war, and fertility. She is also associated with beauty, sex, divine law, and political power. She was originally worshiped in Sumer under the name "Inanna", and later by the Akkadians, Babylonians, and Assyrians under the name Ishtar[b

She was known as "the Queen of Heaven" and was the patron goddess of the Eanna temple at the city of Uruk, which was her early main cult center. She was associated with the planet Venus and her most prominent symbols included the lion and the eight-pointed star. Her husband was the god Dumuzid (later known as Tammuz) and her sukkal, or personal attendant, was the goddess Ninshubur (who later became conflated with the male deities Ilabrat and Papsukkal).

Inanna was the enforcer of divine justice.

The Babylonians worshiped Ishtar as “The Virgin,” “The Holy Virgin,” “The Virgin Mother,” “Goddess of Goddesses,”7 and “Queen of Heaven and Earth.”8 They exclaimed, “Ishtar is great! Ishtar is Queen! My Lady is exalted, my Lady is Queen. . . . There is none like unto her.”9

In Babylonian mythology Ishtar wore a crown and was related to Tammuz, who sometimes was portrayed as her son and other times as her lover.11

According to the description for the Air Force Medal of Honour, the "Statue of Liberty" represents Semiramis, wife of Nimrod and Queen of Babylon, which would be quite a revelation in Christian America and indeed to Christians all round the world because the "Statue of Liberty" is an international symbol and it is not widely known that it has pagan meaning.

Most people on the street think it simply means liberty! Here's what the description says:

"In 1965 the Air Force Medal of Honor was created and it replaced the Minerva portrait with the head of the Statue of Liberty. Lady liberty has a pointed crown instead of a helmet. And she does stand for liberty although she is derived from the imagery of Semiramis, wife of Nimrod, and Queen of Babylon. Semiramis was famed for her beauty, strength, and wisdom and was said to have built the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon. She purportedly reigned for 42 years after taking control from Nimrod. She is a mythical figure who might be somewhat based upon a historical figure."

Who was Semiramis for she is related to Ishtar and what we are speaking of.

According to various legends, Semiramis became pregnant after engaging in an adulterous affair while married to Nimrod. Around this same time, Nimrod dies a violent and untimely death. In an effort to retain power and to hide her misdeeds, Semiramis makes a most audacious claim. She publicly declares that upon Nimrod’s death he had been resurrected as the god of the sun. As the sun-god, Nimrod used his sun rays to miraculously inseminate Semiramis with a child. This child was thus considered to be divinely conceived. The child’s name was Tammuz, which she claimed was the reincarnated Nimrod. (Thus, Semiramis was both Nimrod’s wife and mother.)

After the scattering that occurs at the Tower of Babel, this story of the miraculous conception of this child disseminated throughout the world and led to the rise of the various birth-death-rebirth cults that are littered through history. These mystery religions of future generations adopted different names for Semiramis and her child, Tammuz.

According to another tradition, Semiramis was the daughter of a goddess. She had mermaid-like features with the head of a woman and the body of a fish.

Semiramis becomes the Queen of heaven, who is also known as Ishtar. This goes all the way back to the Tower of Babel in which was birthed the MOTHER AND DIVINE SON WAS BIRTHED AND SPREAD ACROSS THE EARTH INTO DIFFERENT RELIGIONS. Let me show you a depiction of Semmiramis because it looks eerily similar to others being worshipped. 

However, other narratives portrayed her in a completely opposite light. They described her as a petty deity who eventually destroyed all of her lovers and often acted in ways that appeared to contradict her role as a divine protector of justice.

In addition to her ferocity, a number of narratives portray Ishtar as politically cunning and deft at using her intellect to gain allies or outmaneuver opponents.
Given all of this, it is unsurprising that goddess Ishtar was able to transcend socio-political boundaries in Mesopotamian culture to be worshipped by almost every civilization in the region. She was often referred to as the “Queen of Heaven”, and she had multiple temples across Mesopotamia in cities such as Ur and Nineveh.

The Assyrians were notorious for their cruelty and idolatry (Nahum 3:19). Their capital, Nineveh, contained many temples, including one to Ishtar, the Assyrian goddess that some scholars believe was the namesake of Nineveh.

In 2 Kings 19:36 and Isaiah 37:37, Nineveh is depicted as the center of the Assyrian Empire and home to King Sennacherib. Sennacherib led a successful campaign against many nations, but he failed to take Jerusalem due to the Lord’s intervention( King Hezekiah was on the throne of Israel at that time). He returned to Nineveh and was later killed in the temple of the Assyrian god Nisrok (2 Kings 19:35–37).

Nineveh is well-known as the place where the prophet Jonah was sent by God to preach (Jonah 1:2). Jonah was reluctant to go, probably because of the Assyrians’ great wickedness, and he tried to run from the Lord’s command. God intercepted Jonah and sent him to the Ninevites by making a great fish swallow him (Jonah 1:3, 17). In Nineveh, Jonah proclaimed the coming judgment on that city (Jonah 2:10; 3:1–4). Instead of rejecting the Lord’s warning, the Ninevites humbled themselves and repented of their sin, from the king on down. The whole city fasted, put on sackcloth, and sat in ashes—they even dressed their animals in sackcloth (Jonah 3:5–9). Seeing that the city of Nineveh repented of their wickedness, “God relented concerning the judgment he had threatened them with and he did not destroy them” (Jonah 3:10, NET).

So Ninevah was like the hub the center for ishtars wickedness and that is a very profound reason the Lord wanted to destroy it, they had allowed themselves to be totally taken over by this spirit of harlotry, Ishtar, and do its bidding

NYC is becoming Ninevah and we will get into that in a bit.

Ishtar was also looked to in matters of war. In the Code of Hammurabi, the famous Babylonian king calls on Ishtar to ensure that enemies of the state would suffer disaster in war.
Along with her political influence, Ishtar’s role as a liminal deity gave her unique authority over the cultural roles and boundaries of Mesopotamian societies as well. Corresponding to Ishtar’s own ability to transcend categories, the goddess of love enabled her followers to defy or even redefine social boundaries, particularly those related to gender roles. Men who became priests of Ishtar, known as gala, would sometimes assume non-binary gender roles, dress in women’s clothing, and were allowed to engage in homosexuality. Mesopotamian societies even depended on Ishtar for their main source of food, agriculture.

Now lets get to why this all matters now because it is this spiritual harlotry that is attempting to entrance and grip and possess the soul of the nation. Yes, it is a battle for the soul of the nation.
Non, binary…redefining gender roles, redefining the order God had made them male and female the rainbow flag the pressure bearing down on schools and churches to accept a false worship and ideology that was created in mesopotammia by a highly destructive spirit that possessed  and molded a highly toxic pagan people.

This spirit thrives on creating trophies and showpieces that are nothing more than slaves to its agenda, yes these trophy pieces, these people, are slaves they are captives to this spirit, they are the temple prostitutes alluring those to come into agreement and engage in the harlotry this spirit thrives onj because it creates soul ties, which give legal entry for bondage and enslavement.

The Grammy's, Sam Smith, non-binary, the horns on the head this ALL goes back to the temple of Ishtar or Asherah.

Ishtars counterpart was Baal.
1Kings 18:28-29
And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

What are they encouraging the young to do cut and mutilate their parts to become the opposite sex, that is no coincidence either.

This ruler of the darkness that caused Israel to fall has reinvented itself and is making a full court press in America especially on the young and impressionable. That is why this spirit raises up figures in bondage like Sam Smith to influence them and lie to them showing them that acting in this detestable way is not only socially acceptable it will make you prosperous.

Point two: The temple prostitutes were there for those to throw money in their lap and engage in activities of a sexual nature, which in turn they were taught would make them prosperous would cause the land to have rain etc.

What is touted in the schools to little children, on TV, at the Grammys even at the Superbowl, that engaging in these activities of this kind of nature is not only ok it will make you “prosperous” like Sam Smith, like Rihanna, like the Kardashians, like so many others that these spirits put on display.

Money being thrown in their lap to promote things of a sexual nature….

So now let's get to Semiramis, Ishtar, and the Superbowl.

First of all the Superbowl kicks off its competition by a flyover by the airforce, the airforce has a medal of honor, let me read to you the description. According to the description for the Air Force Medal of Honour, the "Statue of Liberty" represents Semiramis, wife of Nimrod and Queen of Babylon, which would be quite a revelation in Christian America and indeed to Christians all around the world because the "Statue of Liberty" is an international symbol and it is not widely known that it has pagan meaning.

Most people on the street think it simply means liberty! Here's what the description says:

"In 1965 the Air Force Medal of Honor was created and it replaced the Minerva portrait with the head of the Statue of Liberty. Lady liberty has a pointed crown instead of a helmet. And she does stand for liberty although she is derived from the imagery of Semiramis, wife of Nimrod, and Queen of Babylon. Semiramis was famed for her beauty, strength, and wisdom and was said to have built the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon. She purportedly reigned for 42 years after taking control from Nimrod. She is a mythical figure who might be somewhat based upon a historical figure."

You have during the halftime show, a pregnant woman dressed in all red. Revealing her pregnancy while being elevated HIGH UP, while it appears herself and these dancers are being levitated and elevated.

What went on with Semiramis? She became pregnant and then claimed it was by immaculate conception thus ELEVATING herself and that child, who would become known as Tammuz the “divine son”  and Semiramis the “queen of heaven”.

Here is a picture/depiction of Semiramis.

Who has a crown on their head, which statue in the catholic church?

It's all connected…

Now let's go to New York City where they just recently put a statue ABOVE, aka elevated, the courthouse.

A Hebrew word was used as the name for this exhibit. The word was HAVAH.
Havah means supposed to mean properly, to breathe; to be (in the sense of existence):--be, X have.

Note the feet on this figure, then let's take a look at the image of Ishtar and note the feet, and the collar around Ishtar's neck as a collar is around the neck of this figure.

The elevation of this statue happened in close proximity to the Grammy's and the Superbowl.
Inside Madison Square Park sits "Witness," a monumental female figure measuring 18 feet tall.

An eight-foot-tall likeness of this same statue was THEN put atop the NYC courthouse.

So there were not 1 but 2 planted in NYC, 1 next to Moses atop, ELEVATED, the NYC courthouse, which represents the LAW.

What did Ishtar represent: associated with aspects of these areas such as sex, fertility, and political power. Ishtar was also revered as an arbiter of justice in Mesopotamian society. The main symbols associated with Ishtar were the lion and the eight-pointed or sixteen-pointed star.

8 points…this statue is 8 feet tall, there is a commonality here.

1st the arch of Baal was placed in NYC, and now his “wife” Ishtar is attempting now to assert herself above the law, and attemopting to rival the laws of God.

Why NYC, why New York?

A few reasons…
In 1970, three years before it was decriminalized for the entire United States with the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973.

Ishtar, known for fertility….

Number 2:
1838 NY state legislature declares:
In all countries, some kind of religion or other has existed in all ages. No people on the face of the globe are without a prevailing national religion. …

With us it is wisely ordered that no one religion shall be established by law, but that all persons shall be left free in their choice and in their mode of worship. Still, this is a Christian nation. Ninety-nine hundredths, if not a larger proportion, of our whole population, believe in the general doctrines of the Christian religion. Our Government depends for its being on the virtue of the people,—on that virtue that has its foundation in the morality of the Christian religion; and that religion is the common and prevailing faith of the people.

There are, it is true, exceptions to this belief; but general laws are not made for excepted cases. There are to be found, here and there, the world over, individuals who entertain opinions hostile to the common sense of mankind on subjects of honesty, humanity, and decency; but it would be a kind of republicanism with which we are not acquainted in this country, which would require the great mass of mankind to yield to and be governed by this few.

It is quite unnecessary to enter into a detailed review of all the evidences that Christianity is the common creed of this nation. We know it, and we feel it, as we know and feel any other unquestioned and admitted truth; the evidence is all around us, and before us, and with us. We know, too, that the exceptions to this general belief are rare,—so very rare that they are sufficient only, like other exceptions, to prove a general rule.2802

New York DECLARES we are a Christian nation…

1838 has 2 8’s in it if you add them you get 16.

The 1st golden statue was 16ft tall.

The 2nd golden statue atop the courthouse was 8 feet tall, this is not a coincidence.

These ancient false gods have been attempting to unravel New York since for their agendas and make it a hub and a breeding ground for such to be spread out like seed across the nation, they are utilizing New York for setting the trends, financial, sexual, spiritual, New York is most definitely one of their hubs, especially for the eastern part of the nation.

It is not an accident this string of events are happening, its an attempt at a hub at Ninevah all over again. This is where we can take a stand or be like the 12000 pastors in Germany who said they would remain neutral and see what happens as Hitler rises to power. We still have a voice and we have the authority of the believer and we need to petition the Lord to issue judgment against this spirit to tare its high places down as with the overturning of Roe v Wade its looking for a home and it has ventured back to where the battle began, NY.
