"But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them - I place no other burden on you. Nevertheless what you have, hold fast until I come.”
I would point out that the phrase “who have not known the deep things of Satan,” is not to be understood as those who are unaware of Satan’s works. The word rendered as known bears a much deeper meaning. It is a reference to those who have had intercourse with the deep things of Satan.
It is not wrong to know about the activity of the adversary of God and His saints, but it is wrong to embrace his doctrines and activities. To do so will bring the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Vine’s New Testament Dictionary has this to say about the Greek word ginosko which is translated as known in the above passage of Scripture.
In the New Testament ginosko frequently indicates a relation between the person “knowing” and the object known; in this respect, what is “known” is of value or importance to the one who knows, and hence the establishment of the relationship… Galatians 4:9, “to be known of God”; here the “knowing” suggests approval and bears the meaning “to be approved.”
Whereas I have knowledge of Satan’s works, I do not value them, nor do I approve of them. Knowledge of Satan’s works is not disparaged by the apostles.
II Corinthians 2:10-11
If I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ, so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
In this present hour when so many of the schemes of Satan are coming to maturity, and the lives of the children of God are greatly impacted by events, I have found it necessary to speak upon the schemes of the enemy. It is really not difficult to discover Satan’s schemes. Satan’s plans are openly published, and the Bible has much to say about them. Although Satan would seek to present himself to mankind as a benevolent being, he is far from it. He truly comes only to kill, steal and destroy.
The Spirit of Christ directed me some time back to do a study of Freemasonry. I was living at the time in one of the great seats of Masonic influence, Macon, Georgia. Macon is a French word meaning Mason. The city was founded by Freemasons, and it was laid out upon the city plan of Babylon. The city is filled with the occult symbols of Freemasonry, including numerous obelisks (a word meaning “shaft of Baal.”)

If you have not read the presentation of Freemasonry, I strongly encourage you to do so. You will learn much about Satan’s methods as well as learn much about the foundations of America as a nation. You can find the writing here: http://www.heart4god.ws/id546.htm
Georgia is a state that has had more than its share of Satanic influence. Macon lies at the geographic center of the state, and this location was chosen purposely to demonstrate the influence of Freemasonry over Georgia. Georgia’s largest city is Atlanta. This city was named after Atlantis, a fabled city that features prominently in occult teachings.
There is a major occult/new age landmark in Georgia called The Georgia Guidestones. Some refer to it as the American Stonehenge. This monument was constructed 28 years ago, and is relatively unknown to the majority of Americans. It is located in a rural area about 90 miles east of Atlanta.
Like most of Satan’s works, the establishment of this landmark was done in the dark, in secrecy.
The origin of that strange monument is shrouded in mystery because no one knows the true identity of the man, or men, who commissioned its construction. All that is known for certain is that in June 1979, a well-dressed, articulate stranger visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He identified himself as R. C. Christian, but it soon became apparent that was not his real name. He said that he represented a group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, but to date, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented...
In the public library in Elberton, I found a book written by the man who called himself R.C. Christian. I discovered that the monument he commissioned had been erected in recognition of Thomas Paine and the occult philosophy he espoused.
If you were raised in the American schools of my generation you most likely heard of Thomas Paine. He was described as a great patriot, and the author of Common Sense, and The American Crisis. These pamphlets were printed and widely distributed, leading many to support the rebellion against England. What many do not know about Thomas Paine is that he was vehemently opposed to Christianity and a reviler of the Son of God.
All the tales of miracles, with which the Old and New Testament are filled, are fit only for imposters to preach and fools to believe.
[Source: Thomas Paine]
Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.
[Source: Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, 1791]
In these statements we begin to glean how Satan is able to use an appearance of reason to convince mankind of the evil of Christianity and the wickedness of the God of the Bible. Thomas Paine states that he detests everything that is cruel. This on the surface sounds like a noble sentiment, and something to be applauded. Yet on the basis of this reason he condemns both God and all those who call themselves Christians.
Thomas Paine rightly discerned that there is much corruption in the visible church, especially noting the cruelty, the debauchery and vile actions of the Roman Catholic Church. What he failed to observe is that all of the corruptions are due to the influence of Satan, and are departures from the teaching of Christ. Likewise, he has failed to discern that the evils of the Bible are all due to sin which was introduced into the world through Satan. The judgments of God against sinful man were all the result of a righteous God bringing an end to the works of Satan.
It will be an employment of such “reason” that serves as the instrument for the coming persecution of the elect of God. True Christianity will be vilified. The overcomers in Christ will be portrayed as “religious extremists” and the world will seek to eradicate them from her midst. That “reason” could be employed toward such an end should not strike the Christian as surprising.
I Corinthians 1:23
We preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness…
I Corinthians 3:18-21
If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness"; and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile."
At the top of the Georgia Guidestones are the words, “Let these be guidestones to an age of reason.” This expression occurs on each of the four sides of the capstone, written in Babylonian Cuneiform, Sanskrit, Greek and Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
On the four massive granite pillars are inscribed ten guiding principles, or ten commandments. Some have referred to these as the ten commandments of the New Age Movement. They could be described as the ten commandments of the New World Order, or the ten guiding principles Satan has delivered to mankind. This is a blasphemous mockery of the ten commandments Yahweh delivered to Moses on tablets of stone. Following are the ten commandments found on the Georgia Guidestones.

LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE
These commandments can be broken down into four categories. (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality. These are the same four areas that the promoters of a New World Order also are focused upon, and a careful study of the plans of the world global elite as published in their own writings will reveal the goals they have set for themselves and the means by which they seek to accomplish these goals.
It is really not difficult to identify those responsible for this monument located in Georgia. The man who paid for it to be constructed identified himself with the pseudonym R.C. Christian. It is easy to discern that this is a reference to Roman Catholic Christian. This may seem antithetical to the references to Thomas Paine who was vehemently opposed to the Roman Catholic Church. However, a study of Freemasonry and Catholicism reveal that they are both derived from the ancient Babylonian Mystery religions. Satan is the author of both of them.
The Roman Catholic Church has a key role to play in the establishment of the New World Order. Roman Catholicism has from its inception been a corrupt mixture of Christianity and pagan religions. This will only increase in coming days as the Roman Catholic Church becomes the point of merging for all of the world’s religions.

In the coming days the one world religion will be one of diversity. It will embrace all the religions of the world, and all forms of religious fundamentalism will be outlawed. It will be illegal for any person to fail to show respect to all other religions. It will be illegal to declare that there is only one way to God, or to declare any belief to be false. If you have been paying attention to what is happening in the world, you will find that these things are coming swiftly.
This past year Tony Blair began a new world mission to unite all the religions of the world into one. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation, as it is called is a giant step toward a one world religious cooperative.
Close to the time that Blair was announcing his new initiative, President Bush was hosting the Pope in Washington, D.C.. Thus we were able to see the merging of the top leaders for a one world government and a one world religion acting in concert.
Let us return to the Georgia Guidestones and see a clear link that brings these two men together. R.C. Christian stated that the plans for constructing the guidestones were formed nearly twenty years earlier. Everything about the guidestones is symbolic. They are arranged with astronomical precision, and holes are found in the stones to align with moon and sun and stars. Every detail is significant, and we can understand that the date the pillars were set in place is also very important and filled with significance.
According to an explanatory marker at the site, the pillars were set in place on March 22, 1980. What is the significance of this date. March is the third month, and the date in America would be written as 3/22. This number is found prominently in one of the secret societies that are very instrumental in bringing forth a New World Order. George W. Bush happens to be a member of this secret society.
This photo taken of the members of Yale’s Skull and Bones members shows President Bush standing just to the left of the clock. Notice the image of the skull on the cloth draped over the table. Following is an enlargement of the image.
Note the number 322. One of the nicknames of the Skull and Bones club is The Brotherhood of Death. Consider how this fits in with the first commandment found on the Georgia Guidestones.
MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000
IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE
One of the goals of the New World Order is to drastically reduce the population of the earth. 500 million is viewed as an ideal number. In order to reach this number 5.5 billion people will need to be removed from the earth. The means to accomplish this goal are wars, starvation, plague, forced sterilization, and euthanasia. If you think that the global elite would not really consider such preposterous measures, then you need only read their own words. Remember, Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy, and his servants share the same goals and methods.
All children who are born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room be made for them by the death of grown persons…. Therefore … we should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality; and if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use. “Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor, we should encourage contrary habits. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. In the country, we should build our villages near stagnant pools, and particularly encourage settlement in all marshy and unwholesome situations. But above all we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases; and restrain those benevolent, but much mistaken men, who have thought they are doing a service to mankind by protecting schemes for the total extirpation of particular disorders.

The white population of the world will soon cease to increase. The Asiatic races will be longer, and the negroes still longer, before their birth rate falls sufficiently to make their numbers stable without help of war and pestilence. Until that happens, the benefits aimed at by socialism can only be partially realized, and the less prolific races will have to defend themselves by methods which are disgusting even if they are necessary.
[Source: Bertrand Russell]
You cannot keep a bigger flock of sheep than you are capable of feeding. In other words conservation may involve culling in order to keep a balance between the relative numbers in each species within any particular habitat. I realize this is a very touchy subject, but the fact remains that mankind is part of the living world…. Every new acre brought into cultivation means another acre denied to wild species.

One of the ten commandments on the Georgia Guidestones is an obvious reference to the employment of Eugenics.
GUIDE REPRODUCTION WISELY —
IMPROVING FITNESS AND DIVERSITY
Please understand that the expression “improving… diversity” is not to be confused with “increasing diversity.” The leaders of the New World Order are racist in the extreme. They are white, and they see other races as “dysgenic.” That is to say, they see the non-white races as containing genetic code that will pass on harmful traits to mankind. Eugenics is the pseudo science of classifying mankind according to their desirability.
Many Americans do not know that Eugenics was very popular in America prior to World War II. Laws were passed in 30 states in America legalizing the forced sterilization of undesirable elements of society, including the mentally impaired, the poor, and criminals. Just this past year the state legislature of Georgia issued a statement of apology for their involvement with Eugenics that resulted in the state forcibly sterilizing thousands of its citizens.
Eugenics reached its height in Nazi Germany where the government went beyond forced sterilization to actively euthanizing undesirable members of society. One of the chief proponents of Eugenics in America was Margaret Sanger. Many recognize her as being the founder of Planned Parenthood. It was formerly called The American Birth Control League. If any doubt that the ultimate goals of Planned Parenthood are other than the goals of Eugenics, to lower the number of undesirables in the population, they need only look at where the majority of Planned Parenthood’s clinics are located. They are in areas of high populations of poor and ethnic races.
According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, more than 43 percent of African-American pregnancies end in abortion. Although African-Americans represent only 12 percent of the American population, they account for almost 35 percent of all abortions. In Mississippi, for example, while African-Americans represent only 37 percent of the population, they account for 73 percent of the state’s abortions. More than 78 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion centers are in or near minority communities.
Abortions and ethnicity
Abortions are much more common among minority women in the U.S. In 2000-2001, the rates among black and Hispanic women were 49 per 1,000 and 33 per 1,000, respectively, vs. 13 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic white women.
[Source: www.wikipedia.com, article on Abortion]
In many areas of America the number of abortions outnumber live births. Abortion is the leading cause of death in America. It is a small step from killing babies to killing other members of society. Does anyone really think that a doctor who performs a partial birth abortion would have any scruples against euthanizing other members of society? Doing a search on the topic of Eugenics in America will lead to some very sobering conclusions.
America has murdered over 40 million babies since 1973. Satan comes but to kill, steal and destroy. Those in league with him do his works. These works will be accelerated in coming days. Members of The Brotherhood of Death (Skull and Bones) will most certainly play a significant role in carrying out the agenda of Satan in what is euphemistically referred to as “population reduction” and “improving the diversity of mankind.”
What is the origin of the number 322? Inside the “Tomb” on the campus of Yale University, the building in which Skull and Bones members meet, are found the words “Anno Demostheni.” This is translated “In the Year of Demosthenes.” Demosthenes was a Greek orator who died in 322 B.C..
Demosthenes is revered due to his skills in oratory. Demosthenes constructed cunning arguments to further whatever agenda suited him at the time. As a Greek lawyer he would often argue on behalf of clients, and his powers of persuasion are legend. He is cited by many as being the greatest orator of all the Greeks.
At the same time, Demosthenes was a very immoral man. He was a pederast (an abuser of young boys), this being a common practice among Greek men at the time. He was accused of misappropriating state funds, as well as stealing the money of students. Yet due to his skills as an orator, he was able to escape any serious consequences from his actions. How appropriate this man seems as a symbol of those in power today.
I personally find writing on this topic very distasteful, and I desire to conclude this writing that I might move onto other matters. Yet I see great benefit in Christians understanding the world they live in, and in discerning the schemes of Satan. Let none suppose that there is a benevolence behind the actions of key leaders of world government today. There is only malevolence.
II Corinthians 11:14-15
For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.
One of the most egregious deceptions foisted upon Christians today is that of false apostles. There are men who are acclaimed as Christian leaders, whose books are read by the millions, and it is possible that some of those reading this blog will even have their books in their homes. One of these men is Rick Warren, the author of The Purpose Driven Life. We need to ever keep in mind that there is a religious component to Satan’s agenda in these last days. He has not overlooked the millions of protestant Christians in forming his schemes.
One of the key organizations of the New World Order is the Council on Foreign Relations. George Bush, Dick Cheney, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and John McCain are all members of this organization whose goals are to establish a one world government. You can find the website for this organization here: http://www.cfr.org/
Rick Warren is also a member of this organization. Rick Warren also counts Rupert Murdoch, the director of News Corp, the parent of the Fox News Network, as one of his church members, and a major contributor to Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. initiative. Murdoch is the world’s largest distributor of pornography through his numerous satellite channels. He is also a member of the CFR.
Rick Warren has hosted numerous political events at his Saddleback Church, (membership 22,000), inviting Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and others to come and speak. On Father’s Day he invited a group of homosexual Christian activists to join him at the church for dinner. He apparently sees no practical application to the words of Scripture that instruct Christians to not be unequally yoked with unbelievers, and to remove the wicked man from among you.
With both Time Magazine and Newsweek (both owned and staffed by CFR members) proclaiming Rick Warren to be “America’s pastor” and one of the most admired Christians in the nation, you can expect him to play an increasing role in the plans of the New World Order.
Let us walk wisely in these days. Let us not be unaware of Satan’s schemes lest we find ourselves unwittingly participating in them. Things are moving forward swiftly to the conclusion of this age. There will be great opportunities to advance the kingdom of heaven and bring glory to the Son of God. We will witness a great clash of kingdoms in these days, but “the people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits.”
May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.
