There are so many ways to examine the life and legacy of our Lord Elvis (blessed be He) that it’s hard to find a way to examine it that will prove His divine status to the masses. This is no simple or irrelevant task, either, since such a vast majority of the world’s people endorse this historio-mythical person or that as their Messiah, their Avatar, their Messenger, their God’s-Manifestation-As-Human.
As far as I’m concerned, one listen to any single gospel song as recorded by Him should be enough evidence. Apparently not.
But I’ve been reading a biography of Sun Ra, a man who was a scholar of history, religion, astrology, numerology, and etymology. And he combined the knowledge and ideas of, oh, just about every religion (mainstream and cult) in trying to find an answer. And he made it work. So in using those, I’ve come up with answers.
-Etymology. The name “Elvis.” Well, one might examine the roots of Elvis’s own religious background. Elvis and His family were Pentecostals; it’s a sect that has direct ancestry in the loosely termed Evangelicals, which in turn has direct ancestry in Lutheranism. Which is a German-based ethos.
And of course, all of Christianity–indeed all Judeo-Christian-Islamic thought–is based in Israel.
El – The original Hebrew word for God. Root of “Eli” (another Hebrew word for God) and “Allah.”
Vis – German word for “face.”
Elvis = “Face of God.”
Religious languages tell no lie. And even the most stubbornly heterosexual of men will have to admit that Elvis (blessed be He) had one beautiful face. Divinely beautiful, even.
Elvis (blessed be He) had 16 letters in His name. Elvis Aron Presley. (Count ‘em.) That’s four fours. (4 X 4 = 16) Four is the number of the Gospels; four is the number of directions; four is the number of seasons; four is the number of classical elements; four is the number of letters in the Tetragrammaton (the Holiest of names for the Hebrew God).
Elvis was born on January 8, 1935. 1/8/35.
January: the 1st month. 1 is the most powerful of all numbers in numerology, seen as the basic building block of all others and therefore the source of all things. (Like God is seen as the source of all things.)
According to Wikipedia, “One can be happy, loving, romantic, dynamic and charismatic, but on the downside it can be egotistical, selfish and melodramatic.”
This is plainly a description of our Lord Elvis.
8: the eighth day of the month; the eighth day of the year (having been the eighth day of the first month). This is double fours. It is also the number of wealth, high reputation, and the virtues of hard work (like touring 225 days a year.)
35: Five (vitality and full awareness of the senses) times Seven (the most purely spiritual of all numbers).
I don’t think I need to say anymore on this point.
Astrology. Elvis was a Capricorn. Jesus was a Capricorn. I don’t think I’m stretching here…
Elvis (blessed be He) brought the joy and meaning to millions and million of lives all over the world, crossing the boundaries of not only religion, but culture, ethnicity, nationalism, and social status. And He had amazing hair.
Most of those other religious figures are still struggling to cross the boundaries of religion. And there’s NO consistency AT ALL in the hair.
I rest my case. Praise be to Elvis!Powered by Sidelines
