CHILD OF PROMISE  818  – # 8 at 18 years old

Bryant’s first meaningful appearance in SI came in the May 6, 1996, issue, when the 17-year-old high school senior announced where he planned to “take his talent,” both coining a phrase and forever altering the landscape of the NBA. (Though not everyone thought so at the time.)

Bryant, a 6’6″ shuffler—except on a basketball court, where he moves like lightning—ambled up to the podium in a ventless sport coat and fine dress trousers bought at the last minute and in need of a tailor, his sunglasses positioned on the top of his shiny shaved head. His coat had puffy shoulders, masking his frame, which at 190 pounds is as skinny and malleable as a strand of cooked spaghetti. He leaned his goofy kid’s mouth toward the microphone, mockingly brought his fingers to his unblemished chin as if he were still pondering his decision, and delivered the news that insiders had been expecting for a week.   

“I’ve decided to skip college and take my talent to the NBA,” Bryant said….

What happened to that CHILD?  Yes, we know that he went on to break records and amaze audiences.  But, where was he spiritually?  Who was he serving?  What was his life about??  Where is he now?  Do you wonder?  Do you care?

This world is going to HELL in a handbasket and no-one seems to notice.  Life has become all about the fame and fortune.  The accolades, the promise of immortality.  You will be immortal one way or the other.  The question is where will your immortal soul spend ETERNITY?  Because there is one.  It is real and the choices you make today, will affect your ETERNITY!

The choice that Kobe made that day, sadly changed the course of his life forever.  He came under the influence of some of the most corrupt and evil star makers in the world.  He was on a path to worldly gain… and spiritual darkness. 

Number 8

According to numerologists number 8 is ruled by Saturn.  In their order there is no number above 8.

  • Number of the perfection, the infinity. In mathematics the symbol of the infinity is represented by a 8 laid down.
  • Symbol of the cosmic Christ.
  • Number figuring the immutable eternity or the self-destruction. It represents also the final point of the manifestation.
  • In China, the 8 expresses the totality of the universe.
  • Number of the balance and of the cosmic order, according to the Egyptians.
  • Number expressing the matter, it is also the symbol of the incarnation in the matter which becomes itself creative and autonomous, governing its own laws.
  • It is the symbol of the new Life, the final Resurrection and the anticipated Resurrection that is the baptism.
  • Represent the totality and the coherence of the creation in evolution.
  • The Pythagoreans have made the number 8 the symbol of the love and the friendship, the prudence and the thinking and they have called it the Great “Tetrachtys”.
  • In Babylon, in Egypt and in Arabia, it was the number of the duplication devoted to the sun, from where the solar disc is decorated of a cross with eight arms.
  • The number 8 means the multiplicity, for the Japanese. …………. Source

Let’s take a closer look at Kobe and his daughter Gianna.

It seems that with all of his wealth and fame life took some dark turns for Kobe.  As it does for everyone who walks on the dark side.  Life got so out of control for Kobe that he took on another persona/person/spirit to cope.

Why Kobe Bryant gave himself the nickname ‘Black Mamba’

Bryant proclaimed himself innocent and the charges were later dropped. The star and his accuser reached a civil settlement, and Bryant’s reputation was badly tainted.
That’s when he named himself “Black Mamba” as an alter ego to cope with the backlash.

An alter ego inspired by ‘Kill Bill’

Inspired by the code name for a deadly assassin in Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 movie “Kill Bill,” Bryant adopted the nickname to separate his life on and off the court,according to a 2014 interview with The New Yorker.
“The name [Kobe Bryant] just evokes such a negative emotion,” Bryant told the magazine. “I said, ‘If I create this alter ego, so now when I play this is what’s coming out of your mouth, it separates the personal stuff, right?’ You’re not watching David Banner — you’re watching the Hulk.”
In a 2015 interview with Ahmad Rashad, Bryant said of the animal that inspired the name, “When I step on that court, I become that. I am that killer snake. I’m stone cold, man.”

Creating the ‘Mamba’ brand

Later, Nike (god of Victory) partnered with Bryant and the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club to launch a youth basketball league, called the Mamba League, to give hundreds of kids free access to the sport.
Bryant later created the Mamba Sports Academyto provide broader athletic and lifestyle training to competitors at all levels in a number of sports. He was on his way to a Mamba Sports Academy game Sunday when Bryant, one of his daughters, and seven other people died in a helicopter crash.
Nike also held a “Mamba Day”to honor his retirement in 2016, and when he died, issued a statement that said, “He was a beloved member of the Nike family. We will miss him greatly. Mamba forever.”

This is programming to get kids to believe that by signing their soul away for sports, they can become immortal!  It is also herding our young people into the Brotherhood of the SNAKE! 
With all the demonic activity among celebrities, it seems that more and more of them are coming out and introducing us to the spirits that control them.  Their “alter ego” is simply that…they spirit that shares their body and manifests itself when they are performing.  
These celebrities sign a contract written in their own blood.  The contract has an expiration date.  They now their end is coming.   It is a trade off they make for living the good life in the spotlight.
BEWARE, don’t think that this phenomenon is limited to celebrities.  This craze of taking on an alter ego/an AVATAR is rampant throughout our society.  Ever since the onslaught of the INTERNET, an opportunity has opened up for normal, everyday people to explore alternate life styles and life choices.  The anonymity of the internet allows people to invent or take on an entire new personality and say/do things they would never think of doing otherwise.  They invent an AVATAR another name, another entity.  WATCH OUT!!  That is an invitation to demonic spirits.  Before you know it, that ALTER EGO/OTHER ENTITY is taking over your life!  It is a TRAP!
Lets get some more details about this persona that lived in KOBE and has been passed on to God knows how many young people.

mamba (n.)

name of a large venomous snake of sub-Saharan Africa, attested by 1859, from Zulu (i)mamba or Swahili mamba.

“Now about snakes. I have never forgotten your quiet, dignified unbelief in my snake histories, and have taken every opportunity of finding out all I can about them; more particularly of the mamba’ or chasing snake. It is a most vicious creature, and will chase you a mile. You must ride hard if one makes for you. It reaches sixteen or eighteen feet, and has the power of erecting itself on its tail when in pursuit of its object; then throwing itself down and rushing on twenty yards or so, and then realing up again: and so on, till it comes to some bush or tree, round which it throws its strong tail, and then strikes right and left at its enemies.” [Journal of the Society of Arts, March 11, 1859]  Source: Etymology.com

Black mamba

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about a species of venomous snake. For other uses, see Black mamba (disambiguation).

The black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis) is a species of extremely venomous snake, a member of the family Elapidae native to parts of sub-Saharan Africa. First formally described by Albert Günther in 1864, it is the second-longest venomous snake after the king cobra; mature specimens generally exceed 2 m (6 ft 7 in) and commonly grow to 3 m (9 ft 10 in). Specimens of 4.3 to 4.5 m (14 ft 1 in to 14 ft 9 in) have been reported. Its skin colour varies from grey to dark brown. Juvenile black mambas tend to be paler than adults and darken with age.

The species is both terrestrial (ground-living) and arboreal (tree-living); it inhabits savannahwoodland, rocky slopes and in some regions, dense forest. It is diurnal and is known to prey on birds and small mammals. Over suitable surfaces, it can move at speeds up to 16 km/h (10 mph) for short distances. Adult black mambas have few natural predators.

In a threat display, the black mamba usually opens its inky-black mouth, spreads its narrow neck-flap and sometimes hisses. It is capable of striking at considerable range and may deliver a series of bites in rapid succession. Its venom is primarily composed of neurotoxins that often induce symptoms within ten minutes, and is frequently fatal unless antivenom is administered. Despite its reputation as a formidable and highly aggressive species, the black mamba attacks humans only if it is threatened or cornered.

KOBE BRYANT’S SECRET WORKOUT PHILOSOPHY – COACH GODWIN EP: 77

Number 7
Seven is a sacred number and the number of Perfected Man. No such thing but it sounds appealing. The biblical number of the Mark of Cain . Multiplication of seven (perfect three times seven) equals 21, Black Jack, or the Devil.  (as in Jack-O-Lantern? Keep reading we will get to that.)    Source
Number 77
The sacred 7 multiplied by the master 11. The number of the biblical Revenge of Lamech. The ‘children of Lamech’ are the alleged builders of the temples in Atlantis and Lamech lived 777 years.  In the United States, Washington D.C. and much of the East Coast is located on the 77th Meridian, known as the American Meridian.   Source

“I Don’t WORKOUT, I BLACKOUT” – Kobe Bryant
What Kobe really means is he works until the spirit takes over and he no longer is in control.  That is what gets him beyond the pains and beyond himself.  Very much like Beyonce’ and Gaga and so many others say about their alter ego.  

The Kobe Bryant 666 Workout- Videos Inside!

So you want to be like Kobe?  Kobe has scored over 40+ points against every team he has played. He’s become a basketball legend because he outworks everyone, both on the court and off it.

Kobe Bryant 666 Workout

The Kobe Bryant workout routine features a hefty mix of track work, basketball skills and weightlifting. His off-season workout has been called the 666 program because he spends 2 hours running, 2 hours on basketball, and 2 hours weightlifting (for a total of 6 hours a day, six times a week, for six months).

Number 666 =(3+3) + (3+3) + (3+3)

Three is the first sacred number with an infinite repeating pattern in numerology. It is a perfect number representing the pagan trinity. It geometrically represents the triangle, the pyramid and spiritually, the third eye. Sacred numbers are intensified when grouped. 33 is a very powerful number to occultists. There are 33 degrees in Freemasonry which symbolizes the Kundalini or serpent force” which is directed up the 33 sections of the vertebrae to achieve “illumination”.  The number 666 is achieved when three groups of three are added together.   Source

In case you have not noticed, the world is being turned upside down.  Those in power have taken control of the minds of the masses through “Programming”.   They have turned evil to good and good to evil.  If you do a search now on the number 666 your search will yield all kinds of articles and videos about how that number has “gotten a bad rap” and is “misunderstood”.  You will find it very difficult to find ANYTHING about the true meaning or symbolism behind the number.  I will tell you what you need to know about that number is it represents the FALLEN, the ANTICHRIST and the coming TYRANNY.  Don’t fall for the lies of the ENEMY.  This is the time of the GREAT DECEPTION.  Be wise, be diligent and be saved!!

KOBE BRYANT DAUGHTER DOIN’ HOOP WORK… Introducing ‘Mambacita’

Kobe Bryant filed ‘Mambacita’ trademark for his daughter Gianna in December

Kobe Bryant was proud to be a father and was even planning the future of his 13-year old daughter, Gianna, before their deaths. According to People Magazine, Bryant filed to trademark the nickname “Mambacita” for his daughter, and planned to use the nickname on athletic clothing.

The trademark was reportedly filed on Dec.(12)  30, 2019 by Kobe Inc., which was a company that Bryant founded back in 2014. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Bryant’s trademark is still pending.

Of course, “Mambacita” is derived from Bryant’s nickname “Black Mamba,” which was used as the Lakers legened’s alter ego throughout the second half of his NBA career. It pointed to his assassin-like mentality that he utilized on the basketball court.

Kobe and Gianna Bryant were traveling to a basketball tournament at the Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif. when the helicopter that they were in crashed in Calabasas. Seven other people were also killed in the crash.

Gianna was an avid basketball player and had drawn praise from all over the world. She was honored by the Connecticut women’s basketball team on Monday night as the Huskies laid out a jersey and flowers on their bench prior to their game.

Bryant truly believed in his daughter’s talents and wanted to take advantage of them at an early age. It’ll be worth keeping an eye on to see if the trademark is granted.

Bryant Surname Definition:

This surname is derived from the name of an ancestor. ‘the son of Bryan.‘ The ‘i’ in Briant and Bryant is of course excrescent. Bryan was not an importation from Ireland, though its popularity as an English fontname is gone. It lingered in North Yorkshire, Westmoreland, and Furness till the close of the last century.

The meaning of this name is not known for certain but it is possibly related to the old Celtic element bre meaning “hill”, or by extension high, noble. It was borne by the semi-legendary Irish king Brian Boru, who thwarted Viking attempts to conquer Ireland in the 11th century. He was slain in the Battle of Clontarf, though his forces were decisively victorious. The name was common in Ireland before his time, and even more so afterwards. It came into use in England in the Middle Ages, introduced by Breton settlers. It subsequently became rare, but was revived in the 20th century.spacer

 

Gigi’s number is 2.   Two can also be seen as 1+1=2  or it can be seen as  11  Eleven  
Number 11
Eleven is a master number. Ten is the perfect number (god) and eleven represents God being exceeded (anti-Christ). Eleven should not be broken down as it is a master vibration. However, when broken down (1+1=2) it represents the two of duality.  Eleven can represent sin, transgression and peril. “The number eleven is the essence of all that is sinful, harmful and imperfect” – W. Wyn Wescott, the Occult Power of Numbers.   Source

The yin and yang symbol suggests the two opposite principles or forces that make up all the aspects of life.# 2

The number 2 symbolizes many of the basic dualities: me/you, male/female, yes/no, alive/dead, left/right, yin/yang, and so on. Dualities are common in human approaches to the world, probably because of our preference for two-valued logic—yet another duality, true/false. Although 2 was female to the Pythagoreans, other numerological schemes viewed it as male. In Agrippa von Nettesheim’s De occulta philosophia (1533; “On the Philosophy of the Occult”), 2 is the symbol for man, sex, and evil. One reason that some have associated 2 with evil is that the biblical book of Genesis does not use the formula “and it was good” when referring to the second day of Creation.

# 20  (year 2020)

The number 20 has little mystical significance, but it is historically interesting because the Mayan number system used base 20. When counting time the Maya replaced 20 × 20 = 400 by 20 × 18 = 360 to approximate the number of days in the year. Many old units of measurement involve 20 (a score)—for example, 20 shillings to the pound in predecimal British money.

When you put Gianna and Kobe together.  Their numbers read 2/24  or 224  or 22 + 4  or 22+2+ 2 or 2222

MASTER NUMBER 22

Master number 22 is called the Master builder and potentially the most successfull of all numbers in numerology Master number 22 is potentially the most successful of all numbers in numerology. It is the most powerful of all numbers and often called the Master Builder. The Master number 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality, but only when it is supported properly by other numbers in the chart.

The 22 has many of the inspirational insights of the 11, combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the 4, making it unlimited yet disciplined; it sees the archetype and brings it down to earth in a material form. It has big ideas, expansive plans, idealism, leadership, and self-confidence.  Source

In that vein, here are 24 stats that help summarize the story and scope of Bryant’s decorated playing career   Click the link above to view this article.

24 can be read several ways.   2+4=6 the number of man.  or 2×4=8 Kobe’s number or 2+2+2 as 222  OR it can be see as 3×8=24 as we have already seen in the beginning of part 1 of this article, to the elite there is NO value more than 8.

  • Symbol of the double harmony of the sky and the earth.
  • Saint Jerome sees in this number the multiplication of the four elements – the earth, the water, the air and the fire – by the six days of the creation.
  • The 24 runes of the runic alphabet which each one has a divinatory senses and a magical power.
  • The twenty four hours of the circadian cycle of meridian lines, dividing the day into equal period. The hours are of Egyptian origin, but the equinoctial hour (60 minutes) is Greek. Formerly among the Egyptians and Romans, the length of the hours varied according to the season.
  • The Chaldeans distinguished, apart from the zodiacal circle, 24 stars including 12 southern and 12 boreal, and they called them the “Judges of the universe”.

Knowing what we do now about Gigi’s Number 2 and Kobe’s number 24 (which is 3 eights) we can see the combination of their numbers like this.     2/24  (Feb 24)   or  224  or  11 x 24   or  2+24= 26 which can be seen as  2+6=8  Using the information that you have been given in this article… you investigate and see for yourself what all that might symbolize/signify.    It ain’t good no matter how you slice it!

Kobe Bryant wore both numbers throughout his legendary 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers

By Maria Pasquini

February 01, 2020 01:30 PM

Kobe Bryant played for the Los Angeles Lakers for his entire 20-year career, but he changed jersey numbers halfway through his career.

When he made his debut with the team in 1996, after being drafted straight out of high school, Bryant started out with No. 8. “When I first came in at 8, is really trying to ‘plant your flag’ sort of thing,” Bryant told ESPN in 2017, shortly before the Lakers retired both of jersey numbers 8 and 24.

As for why he chose the single-digit number, Bryant, who died on Jan. 26 in a helicopter crash, had two reasons.

No. 8 was not only a nod to the number he wore as a young boy while playing in Italy — where his family lived while his father, former NBA player Joe Bryantcontinued his professional career — but also, he wore No. 8 at the youth training camp Adidas ABCD camp, where he wore no. 143, which adds up to eight.

In the photo above we see KOBE as 4x8    8×3=24   24+8=36   36=9  or 8888 or 8×24=192  or 12    again, no matter how you slice it…  it ain’t good!  And it we start adding in the other times he wore those same numbers…this could get Crazy 8! 

However, at the start of the 2006-2007 season, it was time for a change.

“I started new,” Bryant told ESPN, explaining that part of the reason for the change came about after teammate Shaquille O’Neal was traded to the Miami Heat in 2004.

Although he initially hoped to change to No. 24 immediately, the deadline had passed so he had to wait, according to the outlet.

Just like with his previous pick, his second jersey number was also a nod to his past, as he wore No. 24 in high school.

24 is a growth,” Bryant explained. “Physical attributes aren’t there the way they used to be, but the maturity level is greater. Marriage, kids. Start having a broader perspective being one of the older guys on the team now, as opposed to being the youngest.”

The switch also helped keep him motivated to take each day as it came.

It’s a new book, 24 — 24 is every day. Because when you get older, your muscles start getting sore. Body starts aching. You show up to practice that day, you have to remind yourself, ‘OK, this day is the most important day. I got to push through this soreness. My ankles are tight, they won’t get loose. I got to go through it, because this is the most important day.’ So, 24 also helped me from a motivational standpoint,” Bryant added.

Before taking the court on Friday for the first time since the fatal crash, which also claimed the lives of the NBA star’s 13-year-old Gianna Bryant and seven others, the Los Angeles Lakers paid tribute to the late athlete.

In addition to laying out one of Bryant’s two jerseys on each seat in the stadium, two courtside seats were left open in honor of Bryant and his daughter.

In a particularly moving moment that had all the crowd on their feet, the Lakers starting lineup was introduced as “Kobe Bryant,” and each player wore a Bryant jersey, along with “KB” patches on one arm and a black band on the other to honor all nine victims of the crash.

To conclude the pre-game tribute, LeBron James also delivered a heartfelt speech to the crowd.

“As I look around this arena, we’re all grieving,” he said tearfully. “Everybody that’s here, this is really truly a family…now, I know at some point we will have a memorial for Kobe… but I look at this as a celebration tonight. This is a celebration of the blood, sweat and tears… the determination to be as great as he could be.”

“In the words of Kobe Bryant, ‘Mamba out,’ but in the words of us, ‘not forgotten,’ ” James concluded. “Live on brother.”

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED: 

There have been countless tributes around the world for Kobe Bryant since his death. Now there’s a great white shark named after the Lakers legend, who had a fascination with the mysterious creatures.

Kobe Bryant the shark – cataloged as No. 24 in honor of Bryant’s jersey number – is a 12-foot male shark that frequents Guadalupe Island, off Mexico, a breeding and feasting ground for great whites and a place the athlete once visited to dive among them.

Shark researchers with Marine Conservation Science Institution and San Diego-based Shark Diver came up with the idea as a way to honor Bryant, who in 2013 took a shark dive in a cage at the island and came up close to two great whites.

“We enjoyed Kobe’s visit with us so much. Naming a shark seemed like the right thing to do. He will forever be remembered by his fellow shark divers and the shark diving community,” Cindy Michaels, director of communications for Shark Diver, wrote in an e-mail.

The Marine Conservation Science Institute has been cataloging sharks off Guadalupe Island since 2003 as a way to monitor the mysterious sea creatures. There are 312 in the MCSI White Sharks Photo ID Guide.

“It is a tracking tool used to evaluate the island’s white shark population and is instrumental in the conservation of Northeastern Pacific white sharks,” Michaels noted.

During Bryant’s hours-long island boat experience, he spoke with Martin Graf, the company’s owner, about being fascinated with sharks since he was a kid living in Italy, Michaels noted.

Graf and Michael Domeier, MCSI’s president and executive director, thought shark No. 24 was a fitting tribute to Bryant.

“His captain radioed up and asked if we wouldn’t mind if Kobe came in our cages. We were of course thrilled,” Michaels said. “Kobe came over and got in the cages and saw a few great whites, and hung out on the boat for a while.”

The conversation on the vessel went beyond basketball and sharks.

After learning that Graf was from Switzerland, Kobe shared that he had attended a school in Switzerland, Michaels wrote in an e-mail. Graf is a former cyclist so they swapped stories about their athletic experiences.

Shark 24, which is about 10 years old, will be featured in the MCSI White Sharks Photo ID Guide for the year 2020.

The sharks are named by divers, who take photos of the left and right sides of the sharks so they can be identified by markings on their bodies, fins and gills. Shark-naming rights are put up for auction, with funds going back to MCSI, Michaels said.

“The whole situation is so tragic,” Michaels said. “We just wanted to do something cool because he had been with us. I don’t know if we would have come up with the idea if he hadn’t been out with us. It’s just a special community that appreciates the species that are so misunderstood.”

Bryant isn’t the only notable person to have a great white shark named in their honor.

“The Legend” was named after U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle. Actor Paul Walker, who filmed a segment for Shark Week before his death in 2013, has a shark named for him.  (both Chris Kyle and Paul Walker died under very strange circumstances.) “Jacques” is named after diver and conservationist Jacques Cousteau.

What are the chances of an encounter if Bryant fans want to get an up-close look at the shark named after the basketball player?

“Many of the sharks do revisit the island a lot. That’s what that database is for, so we can identify,” Michaels said. “It just depends. There is a very high chance people would see Kobe. We’ve seen the same males come back year after year.”

Michaels said the group expected only the shark community to take note of the naming, but national media outlets — the story first was reported by USA Today — picked up the story after the conservation group posted the news on social media.

Guadalupe Island is a small volcanic island off the Baja California Peninsula. It’s known as a place where great whites gather to feed and mate. Charters take about 19 people on five-day trips to the island.

“It’s really not as scary as people think it is,” Michaels said. ”People come back with an appreciation. We need to respect them because they are predatory – there is a great respect after they take our expeditions.”

Bryant’s fascination with sharks was detailed in a 2017 article he wrote about how to go up against rival Allen Iverson.

“This led me to study how great white sharks hunt seals off the coast of South Africa,” Bryant wrote in the piece called “Obsession is Natural” in The Players’ Tribune. “The patience. The timing. The angles.”

It’s not the only shark tribute that has been done for Bryant since his death. A fisherman who found a Megalodon tooth near Hilton Head dubbed the 4-inch artifact “The Black Mamba” in honor of Bryant.

Let’s take a look at the place where the crash took place.   Calabasas.  

Why do so many celebrities live in Calabasas?

From the Kardashians to Drake, the area is a hotbed for celebrities

For most of the last century, Calabasas has been a sleepy suburban outpost in the western San Fernando Valley (with an unusually rowdy Wild West history).

But in recent years, since the days of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, the city and the neighboring community of Hidden Hills have become an unexpected haven for movie stars, pop idols, and reality TV personalities. Small, secluded, and far from both Downtown LA and Westside celebrity enclaves like Beverly Hills, Calabasas has just 24,000 residents and only officially became a city in 1991. But suburban living may be exactly what’s drawing in so many stars.

Former Hidden Hills mayor (and producer/entertainment lawyer, of course) David Stanley described the gated community’s appeal to The Hollywood Reporterin 2012:

“We have no sidewalks or street lights. People are out walking, the kids gather at the community center to swim and BBQ, and once a year we put on a parade to celebrate the founding of our city—marching bands and all.”

Its distance from the paparazzi-filled neighborhoods of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills may also be a factor.

“The gated communities of Calabasas seem comparatively sequestered and isolated, offering both space and purported security,” Grantlandobservedin 2014.

The area’s celebrity credentials have only been bolstered in the last few years. Justin Bieber bought a house in Calabasas for $6.5 million in 2012, then sold it to longtime West Valley resident Khloe Kardashian two years later.

Drake recently purchased a third home in Hidden Hills, expanding his property holdings around his extravagant YOLO Estate.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West nearly lost their sprawling Hidden Hills estate in the Woolsey Fire, but came away with only a charred lawn, thanks to a team of private firefighters.

But those are just a few of the highlights. Here are some of the notable names who live in or have recently lived in Calabasas or Hidden Hills:

When Calabasas was the Wild West

Long before the Kardashians and Justin Bieber made it famous, Calabasas was a lawless land of ruthless homesteaders

 

In 1890, a man named J.W. Foster, using the pen name Foot Hill Settler, penned three essays for the Los Angeles Herald. In the essays he told of the goings on in the rural settlement of Calabasas, “a picturesque and fertile region” 30 miles northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. Mr. Isaac “Judge” Ijams, “the genial postmaster and station keeper,” had just harvested a good crop of barley and wheat, and having “faith in these foothills as a fruit growing district,” had planted a variety of fruit trees. His “prepossessing” teenage daughter Nettie worked as the area’s postmistress and as head of the “committee of socialization.” She was planning a picnic basket dinner behind the new schoolhouse for July 4. Mike Lorden, the owner of the new general store, was “determined that the Calabasas boys shall not go dry on these hot summer days, so he has put up a sideboard in a little back room, where the boys can get beverages to suit the taste.”

This Mayberry-esque narrative hid a darker reality.

The story you will find on this website describes the very dark and violent history of the area known as Calabasas.  There is a spiritual darkness over the area because of its roots.  It is a very interesting story if you want to check it out.  Click this link

By the late 1890s, the responsible citizens of Calabasas had had enough of their town’s reputation as a dangerous backwater. Branscomb was voted out of office in 1898, and many homesteaders finally received official deeds to their land. In 1902, Harry C. Carr reported that the restless “Judge Isaac Ijams was retiring as Justice of the Peace, after declaring it had become so peaceful that there was nothing to do, and that a Justice of the Peace was now nothing more than ‘an ornament’.”

And so the Wild West days of Calabasas slowly faded into memory. Today, Calabasas is best known as the home of upscale strip malls and the made-for-reality-TV drama of the Kardashians. If only the cameras had been around in the days of Leonis and Leffingwell—now that would have been some good TV.  Editor: Adrian Glick Kudler

Calabaza en Tacha: History and Recipe

The following is a guest post by Becky Morales from Kid World Citizen.

We often associate pumpkins with Halloween in the US, but did you know that many varieties of pumpkins have been cultivated in Mexico for thousands of years!? In fact, archeologists have found pumpkin seeds in tombs in Mexico dating back to 7000 BC! They also found evidence that indigenous farmers cultivated the pumpkin from 6000-5000 BC in Oaxaca and Tehuacán in Central Mexico (which coincidentally is also where the first maize was ever cultivated). The pumpkin shell was used as a recipient and cup by the Aztecs and other Mesoamerican indigenous groups, and pumpkin seeds were ground in sauces (such as mole or pepián).

The Aztecs celebrated Mictecacihuatl (Queen of the underworld and afterlife) during their fall festival commemorating the dead- which eventually combined with the Catholic “All Souls Day,” and evolved into the current Day of the Dead celebration. During this fall festival, they cooked the pumpkin pulp in clay pots. This dish- “calabaza en tacha”- is enjoyed by people around Mexico and Guatemala during the fall when pumpkins are harvested. Typically bought in mercados or ferias (fall festivals) to celebrate Day of the Dead

OCC:Halloween’s Occult Connection  by David L. Brown
  THE DARK SIDE OF HALLOWEEN

by David L. Brown Th.M. Copyright 1990

The Celts considered November 1st as being the day of death because the leaves were falling, it was getting darker sooner and temperatures were dropping. They believed Muck Olla, their sun god, was loosing strength because Samhain, lord of death, was overpowering him. Further, they believed that on October 31st Samhain assembled the spirits of all who had died during the previous year. They had been confined to inhabit animals’ bodies for the past year as punishment for their evil deeds. On the eve of the feast of Samhain, October 31st, they were allowed to return to their former homes to visit the living. Supposedly to protect these people, Druid priests led the people in diabolical worship ceremonies in which horses, cats, black sheep, oxen, human beings and other offerings were rounded up, stuffed into wicker cages and burned to death.This was done to appease Samhain and keep the spirits from harming them.

THE DRUIDS

Who were the DRUIDS? They were occult practitioners, witches of sorts. In the century preceding the birth of Christ, Caesar conquered the Britains and he records very carefully the account of the DRUID PRIESTS (early witches)…”All Gallic nations are much given to superstition…they either offer up men as victims to the gods, or make a vow to sacrifice themselves. The ministers in these offerings are the Druids, and they hold that the wrath of the immortal gods can only be appeased, and man’s life redeemed, by offering up human sacrifice, and it is a part of their national institutions to hold fixed solemnities (Ceremonies) for this purpose.”

I looked deeper to see if I could find the dates of these “fixed solemnities.” In the series edited by Richard Cavendish called, Man, Myth and Magic it says, in volume 6, page 720, “…the pagan Celts in Northern Europe held two great fire festivals each year— Beltane on the eve of 1 May and Samhain on the eve of 1 November — to mark the beginning of summer and winter.” I also came across an article written by Robert Graves in the Daily Telegraph Magazine, May 21, 1965. Graves said the fixed worship days are the “cross- quarterly days-Candlemas (February 2nd), May Eve (April 30th), Lammas (August 1st) and Halloween (October 31st).

When they got together on these pagan worship days they would meet in a grove of trees (preferably oak trees) or in a Druidic stone circle, the most famous surviving circle being located in Stonehenge, England. It is evident that human sacrifice was common at this ancient Druid Sacrificial Circle because within three miles of this sight there are over 350 funeral mounds that contain the remnants of countless human sacrifices.

Holiday researcher George Douglas adds some interesting information when he says “Many of Halloween’s customs are derived from the ancient Baal Festivals.Other customs originate from the taking of omens from the struggles of victims in the fires of druidic sacrifices.” (From: The American Book of Days, by George William Douglas revised by Helen Douglas Compton).

Alexander Hislop in his book, The Two Babylons, says, “The god whom the Druids worshipped was Baal, as the blazing Baal- fires show—We know that they offered human sacrifices to their bloody gods. We have evidence that they made `their children pass through the fire to Molech’, and that makes it highly probable that they also offered them in sacrifice; for, from Jeremiah 32:35, compared with Jeremiah 19:5, we find that these two things were parts of one and the same system.” Further, it is to be noted that the “priests of Nimrod or Baal were necessarily required to eat of the human sacrifices; and thus it has come to pass that `Cahna-Bal‘, (Cahna is the emphatic form of Cahn which means `a priest’) meaning the priest of Baal, is the established word in our tongue for a devourer of human flesh.” (from The Two Babylons, Hislop. See page 232).

Though the name of their gods were changed Hislop believes that the Druids practices were rooted in Baal worship, which is condemned in the Bible.

THERE ARE STILL DRUIDS TODAY

According to Robert Graves, there are still Druid practitioners around today. In fact, members of one surviving coven in Somersetshire, England still carry small blue tattoos pricked below a particular finger joint made from woad (an Old World plant with leaves that yield a blue dye) as did ancient Druids. You will still find Druids meeting at Stonehenge this Halloween symbolically carrying out their grotesque sacrifices. Although they claim no longer to practice human sacrifices they are one group responsible for keeping the occultic celebration of Halloween before the media. The followers of the Druids pagan religion are common in the USA too. A woman called me and told me a group going around to Milwaukee, Wisconsin area libraries presenting a program to children which dealt with their heritage. She engaged one in a conversation afterwards and found that he claimed to be a druid priest who practiced the “old religion.”

THE PATHETIC PARADOX OF CHRISTIANS CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN

It’s no wonder that a onetime witch of our day, Tom Sanguinet, former high priest in the Celtic tradition of Wicca ( witchcraft) said, “Halloween is purely and absolutely evil, and there is nothing we ever have or will do that would make it acceptable to the Lord Jesus.”

Owen Rachleff amplifies this when he wrote, “Halloween can be, and to many is, a deadly serious affair. [It] originated with pre-Christian Druids or Celts in Northern Europe, who marked the year by four seasonal festivals. The autumn feast took place on November 1st. Early Christians, desiring a part in the traditional festivities, created All Saints’ Day to coincide with the pagan rites. Satanists–acting true to form–reversed the Christian procedure. Because November 1st was All Saints’ Day (All Souls’ Day, November 2nd, memorializes the dead), Satanists established October 31st as and “All Demon’s Night.” As surely as the Christian martyrs and saints dominated their own holiday, so did the demons permeate the preceding evening. All Hallows’ Eve predictably became a time of spells, curses, and horrors for those who did not believe, but for the Satanists, particularly the witches, it was a joyous festival and major sabbat. So it remains in a diluted form, ironically celebrated by Christian society far more vigorously than All Saints’ Day.” (Quoted from The Occult Conceit – A New Look at Astrology, Witchcraft and Sorcery, by Owen S. Rachleff, from page 189-190.)

Historically, Halloween is obviously and totally a pagan, occultic worship day. There is NOTHING Christian about the day. Pause for a moment. Dig beneath the candy. What is the primary focus of Halloween, even in our day? I see a three fold focus… 1) DEATH 2) FEAR & HORROR 3) EVIL, THE DEVIL & THE OCCULT. There is absolutely NO Christian significance to be found in Halloween.

Remember our earlier reference to BLACK JACK?  Well here is the Jack referenced.  The one the Numerologist call the Devil. 

JACK-O-LANTERNS    – BLACK JACK – THE DEVIL 

Jack-O-Lanterns, what is their significance? The World Book Encyclopedia, 1977 edition, volume 9, page 24-26 says, “The apparently harmless lighted pumpkin face of `Jack-O-Lantern’ is an ancient symbol of a damned soul.”

According to an article I read by Dr. John MacArthur, Jr. according to folklore “Jack-O-Lanterns were named for a man called Jack, who could not enter heaven or hell. As a result, he was doomed to wander in darkness with his lantern until judgment day.” With this in mind, people began to hollow out pumpkins and turnips, placing candles inside to scare evil spirits from their houses.

What a tragedy. John 3:16 makes it clear that no one has to be outside of heaven…”For God so loved the world (mankind), that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should NOT perish, but have everlasting life.” It is also clear that if any individual refuses to trust Christ as Savior he is condemned already (John 3:18 & 36). There is no wandering. It is either Heaven or Hell depending on whether you have trusted Christ as your Savior (John 14:6; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8-9).

There was another purpose for Jack-O-Lanterns according to author Owen Rachleff. “The candlelit pumpkin or skull… served as a beacon for the sabbat and as a signal to mark those farms and homes that were sympathetic to the Satanists (and actually being sympathetic to the Druids/Satanists meant that you were willing to offer a human sacrifice from your household to appease the spirits.  So, by lighting that pumpkin/gourd on your porch you were saying come and take a sacrifice) and thus deserving of mercy when the terror of the night (Halloween) began.” (The Occult Conceit; page 190).

Calabasa is well known for their Pumpkin Festival, which grows larger and darker, every year.

Calabasas Welcomes Their First Annual ‘Nights Of The Jack’: A Halloween Jack O’Lantern Experience

Los Angeles residents and celebrities alike are expected to visit thousands of hand-carved pumpkins and celebrate Calabasas’ history


NEWS PROVIDED BY Nights Of The Jack  –
Sep 13, 2018, 15:49 ET  or  9 /13/2018  at   1+5=6:4+9=13  or 6:13

CALABASAS, Calif.Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Television Production and Event Industry veterans Ben BiscottiTony Schubert and Bobby Rossi have come together to provide Angelenos with one Halloween experience they won’t want to miss. Set to take place in Calabasas this October, the greater Los Angeles area will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a Halloween wonderland filled with thousands of hand-carved Jack O’ Lanterns in a carefully selected location with incredible historical significance. Legend has it that in 1824, at the top of the Calabasas grade on the original El Camino Real, a rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagon-load of pumpkins while en route to Los Angeles. Sometime later, hundreds of pumpkin seeds sprouted alongside the road. As a result of the surprising event, the area was dubbed Las Calabasas—”the place where the pumpkins fell.” Nights of The Jack, a must-see Halloween experience will delight visitors of all ages by bringing thousands of one-of-a-kind hand-carved pumpkins to life at King Gillette Ranch.

Why This New Pumpkin Festival Is Getting a Ton of Social-Media Buzz

The inaugural Nights of the Jack, created by a team of Los Angeles-based event veterans, has more than 5,000 hand-carved jack-o-lantern tributes (offerings) to Rodeo Drive, the solar system, Disney princesses, Kim Kardashian, and more.

Intricately carved pumpkins may be nothing new, but an inaugural festival in Calabasas has a distinctly Los Angeles twist—more than 5,000 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns feature local staples like the shops on Rodeo Drive, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and palm trees surrounding the Hollywood sign.

The Palm Tree Symbolism promoted here is the old Pagan Sex cult that is being promoted in today’s society. 

#23 The number 23 appears in many mysterious coincidences but only to those who notice it.The 23 Enigma is a belief that the number 23 is of particular or unusual significance, especially in relation to disasters.

The link to disasters also corresponds with hexagram 23 of the “I Ching”, P’o, translated as “Splitting Apart.” The hexagram pictures a time in which inferior people surreptitiously overthrow the superior.

Each parent contributes 23 chromosomes to the DNA of a child.

In humans the 23rd chromosome determines biological sex. True by convention; the numbering of chromosomes is actually arbitrary.

December 23, 2012 is the date the Mayan calendar ends, predicting an apocalyptic event. The Mayan calendar’s “Long Count” does indeed end on either the 21st or 23rd of December of 2012, depending on calculation (see Maya calendar#End of the world?).

Both the ancient Egyptian and Sumerian calendars begin on 23 July. Both calendars were apparently calculated from the date of the heliacal rising of Sirius, which does occur at that latitude around that time of year  Source: UnexplainedMysteries

Palm Tree Symbolism – Masculine And Feminine Energy

To many of us, palm trees summon up summer holidays and brilliant weather. 

While this is not too far off – after all, the palm tree is a sun symbol – there is far more to it palm tree symbolism than that!So let’s take a look at the symbolism of the palm tree and how it might relate to you.

Health & Vitality
First, as a sun symbol, the palm tree represents health and vitality.

The sun has long been a symbol of health, and the palm tree itself seems to resemble the sun at the head.

The reason we associate sun symbols with health and vitality is simple – the sun makes us healthier. 
More than that, it brings life to all living things on Earth, with no exceptions.
After all, there’s a reason why so many cultures have based their beliefs around the sun and the stars.

Fertility
Along the same vein, palm tree symbolism also relates to fertility and childbirth. 

The life-giving properties of the sun lends the palm tree the symbolism of birth and fertility, but the palm tree itself also shows these symbols. 
The phallic shape of the trunk and the “flowering” fan of leaves at the head have sexual connotations. The fruit-bearing nature of the palm also supports this reading, especially if you consider the suggestive shape of that fruit too.

Masculinity
Sun symbols are generally thought of as masculine, with the typical chivalric values of honour and truth meeting the typical masculine values of strength and practicality.

The palm tree is no exception to this, with its almost excessive male sexual symbolism.
But that isn’t the whole story…

Femininity & Balance 
Unlike most sun symbols, the palm tree also has a lot of feminine and female sexual symbolism. 
Feminine energy adds a new dimension to the symbolic meaning of the palm tree, as we now see ideas of balance between the masculine and feminine energies come to the fore. 
Balancing these energies is essential for us in our daily lives. 
Nobody is truly masculine or feminine in a spiritual sense. 
Everybody has varying traits and values between masculine and feminine ideals, and finding the balance that is right for you is equivalent to discovering who you are.

Finding out who you are – self-discovery – is an integral part of a spiritual lifestyle.

Growth & Success
Like all trees and plants, palm trees also represent to us the idea of growth and change. 

Throughout history, palm leaves have been used to reward successful growth – or just success in general! 
The Romans were particularly keen on palm leaves, using them as a primitive “red carpet” to welcome home triumphant military generals.

The fun, social media-friendly displays are part of Nights of the Jack, a new festival taking over a half-mile trail at King Gillette Ranch. Running from October 11 to November 4, the public, ticketed event features more than 20 large installations with themes and has already drawn celebrities including Matt Damon, Tori Spelling, Taylor Lautner, David Arquette, and Lance Bass.

The event is the brainchild of Ben Biscotti, co-founder and president of 1iota Productions; Tony Schubert, principal of Event Eleven; and hospitality veteran Bobby Rossi of Bungalow 8 and Rec Room. The same group, which Biscotti calls “the dream team,” put together the inaugural Rosé Day L.A. in Malibu in June.

All of us have always had a special connection to Halloween, and we wanted to create something that would become a staple destinationand fun experience for families, adults, and children of all ages,” explained Biscotti. “There is truly something in our show for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. The kids love their favorite characters and the big themed installations, while the adults appreciate the intricate works of art and the level of production put into the project.”

Hundreds of artists from around the country carved the jack-o-lanterns, and New York-based Debbi Katz Productions helped with set build and design. In addition to the L.A.- and celebrity-focused areas, other family-friendly spots include a solar system display, Disney princesses, an “under the sea” theme, and a group of pumpkin dinosaurs.

The Rodeo Drive display—which features logos for Tiffany & Co., Dior, YSL, and other luxury brands flanked by glamorous pumpkin-headed shoppers—was designed as both an homage to the fashion industryand a chance to secure some future partnerships.

“We chose some of our favorite brands—and maybe our wives had a little something to do with it too,” laughed Biscotti. “We wanted to showcase these brands year one to prove that this unique marketing approach is a ‘must-have’ when entering the holiday season. We are projecting over 50,000 people to physically pass by the installation,and the total number of social impressions and press by the end of the run should be an extremely attractive proposition for future marketing dollars.”

The festival also has food trucks and a bar from Lance Bass’s Bubble Tap Trailer, and of course, plenty of social-media-friendly moments, which Biscotti noted is crucial when launching a new event. “It’s a social world now, and creating that buzz on all social-media outlets is paramount to success when launching a new brand and keeping it relevant,” he said.

So, will the “dream team” behind Nights of the Jack continue to plan public events in the future? Biscotti says yes. “This team of veterans brings a unique set of skills from different industries, and [we’ve] been able to create amazing properties that we hope will be staple events here in L.A. for many years,” he explained. “Absolutely be on the lookout for more of these experiential brands in the near future.”

The inaugural Nights of the Jack takes place at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas until November 4. Some 5,000 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns stretch along the half-mile trail.

Kobe and Gianna Bryant Public Memorial Set for Symbolic Date of 2/24/20, Vanessa Bryant Says

Kobe, Gianna Bryant Public Memorial Set for Symbolic Date of 2/24/20 at Staples Cente
A celebration of life service for Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna is set to take place at 10 a.m. on Feb. 24, (224)nearly a month after the helicopter crash that killed the pair and seven others, Vanessa Bryant confirmed Friday.

As she noted on Instagram, the date — 2/24 — represents the two jersey numbers of the father and daughter basketball players: Kobe wore No. 24 during the latter part of his legendary career with the Lakers, while Gianna wore No. 2 on her youth basketball teams.

The 20 represents how many years Kobe was with the Lakers, she wrote in the post.

No additional details were immediately released, including information about ticketing.

The Los Angeles Times, citing sources, reported Thursday that the date was chosen after discussions between the Lakers organization, Staples Center officials and Vanessa Bryant.

A game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies is scheduled to take place at Staples Center after the memorial, at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to the Bryants, the ceremony was expected to honor the seven others killed when the helicopter headed to a basketball tournament in Thousand Oakscrashed on a hillside in Calabasason the morning of Jan. 26, according to the Times.

The other victims were longtime OrangeCoast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri Altobelli and their daughter, Alyssa Altobelli; Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton Chester; assistant basketball coach Christina Mauser; and pilot Ara Zobayan.

In the wake of the tragedy, thousands of people flocked to Staples Center – also known as “The House That Kobe Built” – and nearby L.A. Live to grieve, pay their respects and leave items in tribute.  (as in The House that “Jack” Built)

The massive memorial – which, according to Staples Centers President Lee Zeidman, included 14large banners, over 1,300 basketballs, 25,000 candles, 5,000 signs and letters, 500stuffed animals and 350 pairs of shoes – was dismantled on Feb. 3.

A number of those items were expected to be catalogued and delivered to the Bryant family.

Flowers left at the memorial were also turned into mulch and would be spread around the landscaping that dots Staples Center and L.A. Live, ensuring “that the love all of the fans brought … lives on,” Zeidman tweeted.

An emotional tribute to Bryant and the other crash victims was held before the Lakers game on Jan. 31, the team’s first game since the basketball icon’s death.

Staples has also been the site of other public memorials, including last year’s tribute to Nipsey Hussle and one in 2009 following the death of Michael Jackson. The arena can seat about 20,000 people.

What Does 224 Mean?

224 means “Today, Tomorrow, Forever”. 224 is commonly used in internet chat forums and text speak in a romantic context to express permanency, such as when making a declaration of love. For example:

  • I promise to love you 224.

Of note, the term “Today, Tomorrow, Forever” has long been used in love songs and was the title of albums by musician Corey Paul and singer Nancy Wilson.

Genesis 28:18 – So Jacob rose early… – Verse-by-Verse …

Ni fallat fatum, Scoti, quocunque locatum Invenient lapidem, regnare tenentur ibidem. “Or fate’s deceived, or Heav’n decrees in vain, Or where they find this stone the Scots shall reign.” It had been brought out of Spain into Ireland, afterwards out of Ireland into Argyleshire, and Edward I. caused it to be conveyed to Westminster.

Folks this stuff is no joke.  It is for REAL.  The elites are all about calling in the Watcher/Fallen Angels/Ancient Ones/GODs  of the Past using sex magic and human and animal sacrifice.  They are convincing people that they can become GODS and live forever!  WAKE UP..  They are told that in order to reach their goal of becoming a GOD they must blur the lines between the sexes and make the two one.  They are told that sex is where the power is, and especially sex with children.  They are told that power is in the blood and shedding and drinking blood and eating flesh will move them forward toward their goal.  They WORSHIP DEMONS and DEMONS POSSESS THEM!!!
