1. I always feel the need to explain things. To understand beyond physical view. Threads & Decodes have been merging together like nothing I’ve ever imagined. #GodatWork Recently I realized why they are intersecting & where its pointing me so I’m going to go deep into that here⚠️
2. This is really an extension of a thread from here👇🏻 It all came to a head. Multiple crossovers from @paulacblades001, @JackalsLast & @voeljegoed were exploding in front of me💥 & it’s really felt unexplainable... until I looked for a birds eye view🦅

3. I will do my best to explain it as clearly as possible. 🙏🏻 I know it will be hard for some, just remember fear is not from our Creator! It is said that “FEAR NOT” is mentioned 365 times in the Bible. That is not a mistake. I think He means it.

Shamash was the Akkadian name for the #Mesopotamian god of the sun, known to the Sumerians as Utu. His main symbol was the solar disc, a circle with four points in each of the cardinal directions and four wavy, diagonal lines emanating from the circle between each point.
According to "Gods, Demons, and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia" by Jeremy Black and Anthony Green, the Akkadian name for this #symbol was shamshatu. It was often represented on a pole as a standard. The symbol is currently a popular icon among people native to #Mesopotamia.
