This post follows up on the previous post titled Super Bowl XLVI - Strange Flesh and Giants. I would share some further thoughts that arise in consideration of the world’s greatest spectacle, the Super Bowl. The previous post focused on the half-time show, but this one will look at the game itself.
As the former post revealed, Super Bowl XLVI was a coming out party for the One World Governmental Order of which Lucifer is the chief architect (Masonic “Great Architect of the Universe”). The game was held in Lucas Oil Stadium. Oil is a symbol of anointing. Yahweh used the oil from the pressed flesh of ripe olives to light the lamps in the Temple and to be used for anointing kings and priests.
Anointing can be defined as the power to carry forth one’s plans. Christians are to operate under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Yahweh will provide the power to accomplish every work that He initiates. This anointing comes at a cost, for all saints are required to present themselves as a living sacrifice unto God. Their flesh nature must be crushed like the olive in order for the anointing of God to flow from their lives.
Satan offers an alternate anointing. The anointing oil of Satan is symbolized by petroleum. The word “petroleum” means “rock oil.” It is oil dredged up from the depths of the earth that has been formed of dead and decaying matter. This is a profound parable of those who are separated from God. Their source of power to accomplish all things is rooted in the sinful nature. It is corrupt. It offers a source of power, but the works wrought by this fleshly power are all tainted and fall short of the glory of God. The tower of Babel was such a work, as is that world system that Satan is laboring to build that has taken the Egyptian pyramid as its emblem.
For further understanding of the distinctions between Yahweh’s anointing and the power employed by a fallen creation see the writing titled Black Oil Anointing.
Lucas Oil is a company that sells petroleum products. As such, it symbolizes the power and anointing of a fallen world system to accomplish those works initiated by mankind and the fallen angels. The name “Lucas” is itself interesting. It is similar to the name Lucis. The Lucis Trust is a Luciferian publishing house established by Alice Bailey, a devout Satanist. Bailey actually named the publishing company Lucifer Trust, but it was later changed to Lucis Trust to obscure the link between New Age teachings and Satan. At one time the Lucis Trust offices were located at 666 United Nations Plaza. Lucis Trust is today a Non-Governmental Organization recognized by the United Nations. The Lucis Trust has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Counsel. This fact should leave no doubt who the power behind the United Nations is. Satan is the ruler of this world system.
I John 5:19
The whole world lies under the power of the wicked one.
I have no doubt that Satan chose Lucas Oil Stadium as the host site of Super Bowl XLVI due in part to the symbolic meaning of the name. The name Lucas is derived from the Greek word Leukos meaning white, which is a cognate of the Latin Lux meaning “light.” The name Lucifer means “Bringer of Light,” hence the association between Satan and the character Prometheus from mythology. Prometheus was characterized as a demigod who brought the secrets of fire and other mysteries to mankind, and was cruelly judged by the god Zeus due to his actions. Satan is ever seeking to depict himself as an angel of light, and as a victim of the cruel judgment of Yahweh. That he presents himself as a light bearer was certainly evident during the half-time show of Super Bowl XLVI.
Satan and his emissaries among men are becoming much more open at displaying occult symbolism that has long been considered evil by Christians. The pyramid topped with an all seeing eye and the out-raying beams of light is firmly rooted in Luciferian organizations such as the Illuminati (enlightened ones) and Freemasonry.
Great Seal of the United States
No disciple of Christ should mistake the above image as Christian in origin. It is Luciferic, symbolizing the ascension of Satan as the ruler of the world. Through this symbol Satan is boasting that he sees all, and that he is a source of light to all men.
Close-up of All Seeing Eye During Half-Time Show
Note the bright light emerging from the stage center. If you follow the lines on the floor you will see that the lights rest atop the very top of the pyramid shape. Satan is signifying that when he rules all men that he will bring light to the world. We should not imagine that Satan is going to portray himself as dark and evil. He is a master of deception and disguise, and he has taught this art to his servants.
II Corinthians 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
Looking at the above passage in the original Greek manuscripts reveals that a literal rendering of one portion of the words above could be written as “transforming themselves into anointed (christos) messengers (apostolos).” Madonna was such an anointed messenger, being attended by a black robed choir, and even comparing her performance to delivering a sermon at a church service. According to some correspondence I have received, her performance deceived some Christians. One sister in Christ posted the following comment.
My dad is a born again christian and a fellow brother who he has prayer meetings with weekly came over when my dad was watching the superbowl. They sat through Madonna's performance (I didn't go near the TV lol) and after I heard them saying that she did a really good job. Later, when I saw the pictures of the performance hours later, I SCREAMED. I knew it would be dark but it was just satanic symbolism overload. I ran to my dad and pointed out how demonic it looked and he mentioned that she kept mentioning praying to God..obviously not the One True God and he agreed...but why sit through something so dark and even praise it? Who knows what doors were opened to those who watched the performance!
Satan has great power in this earth both to deceive and to carry out his plans by force. Christians who boast of casting down principalities and powers, who revile Satan as “Old Slough Foot” and his angelic hosts as “imps,” do not know the forces they are dealing with. The Scriptures describe Satan as an “angelic majesty,” and he should be considered as such by Christians.
Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties. But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed.
Satan’s power does not compare to the omnipotence of Yahweh, but it is far beyond the might and power of mortal men. To this fact, the apostle Peter also gives utterance.
II Peter 2:10-11
Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties, whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.
Consider the power manifested by Satan that is recorded in the book of Job. Having received permission from Yahweh to afflict Job, Satan manifested a mastery over both men and creation. In a single moment of time he stirred up bands of men to kill Job’s servants and steal his flocks and herds, as well as forming a whirlwind and directing it with perfect precision to strike the house Job’s sons and daughters were feasting in, killing them all in an instant.
Now there was a day when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house; and a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, when the Sabeans raided them and took them away — indeed they have killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you!" While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell you!" While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "The Chaldeans formed three bands, raided the camels and took them away, yes, and killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you!" While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you!"
That Satan has great power and authority in the earth is evidenced in this historical account. Many Christians behave like unreasoning animals as they act and speak contemptuously of the power of Satan and his angelic hosts. Christians need to manifest humility, recognizing that they are saved from the power of Satan not by any power of their own, but by the protecting hand of Christ. He has set limits on what Satan can do to His own. Satan had to ask permission of God to touch Job, even as he had to gain the permission of Christ to sift Peter.
And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.”
Had Christ not granted Satan permission, he could not have touched Peter. All the saints stand protected by the power of Christ. As a Shepherd, He guards His sheep. His rod and staff are feared by the enemy and give comfort to his flocks.
As I observe many things in the earth today I see the power of Satan moving things inexorably forward to the accomplishment of his goals. Christians should humbly recognize the peril they face, taking refuge in the presence of Christ who has purchased them with His blood. The proud will surely fall. Those who look to the arm of the flesh to preserve them do not know how vain the attempt is. Satan is not thwarted by such things. We have a powerful adversary.
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time." Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent... And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua Christ.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual. Martin Luther knew something of the wrath of Satan as he was emboldened to take a stand against the Great Whore who is the Roman Catholic Church. Martin Luther did many things wrong, but he rightly understood that we have a mighty adversary and our only hope is in Christ. He penned the following words to his famous hymn.
A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
our helper he amid the flood
of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe
doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and power are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
on earth is not his equal.
Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right man on our side,
the man of God's own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabaoth, his name,
from age to age the same,
and he must win the battle.
And though this world, with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God hath willed
his truth to triumph through us.
The Prince of Darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo, his doom is sure;
one little word shall fell him.
That word above all earthly powers,
no thanks to them, abideth;
the Spirit and the gifts are ours,
thru him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
the body they may kill;
God's truth abideth still;
his kingdom is forever.
This brings me to a consideration of the battle waged on the field of Super Bowl XLVI. The giants represent those emissaries of Satan in the earth. These will wage war with the descendants of Adam, and will prevail. The word “Patriot” comes from the root word “patros” meaning “father.” A patriot is one who loves his father-land, which is to say, the land of his forefathers.
It was the will and work of Yahweh that divided all mankind into tongues and tribes and nations. He appointed to each family of man the boundaries of their lands. It is right and proper for men to manifest a love and devotion to that land, for it is their natural inheritance bequeathed to them by Yahweh. The Patriots represent those men of all nations who love their families, their nations, and their lands. They are those who honor their forefathers and love the traditions, language, and customs of their own people.
Such patriotism is not evil, for it was God who divided man into families, tribes and nations and appointed to them their boundaries.
When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples...
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings...
Satan has been waging war against the distinctiveness of the families of the earth. He has been seeking to overturn the judgment of Yahweh when He divided mankind at the Tower of Babel. Satan would make all men into one great melting pot, with one language, one government, one financial system, one culture, and one ruler. Those who love their families, nations, and cultures are under attack. The media under the leading of Satan have made national diversity and individuality appear as a negative thing. They would portray the distinctions among men and nations as a source of divisions and wars and suffering. The truth is quite the opposite. Yahweh divided mankind to slow down their descent into evil. By dividing mankind into families in the earth, He insulated them from the corruption of the most wicked among mankind.
Much is said about diversity in this hour, but this is a charade. The United Nations, United States, and other globalist entities are not desiring diversity. They are seeking homogeneity. They speak of embracing homosexuality as celebrating diversity, but in truth they wish to make homosexuality the new universal norm. They will not tolerate the diversity of those who believe such behavior to be unnatural and obscene. What is being foisted upon the world is the lowest common denominator. The most depraved and immoral acts and attitudes of mankind are being forced upon the nations, debasing all humanity, which is the goal of Satan.
This week in the news it has been reported that Barack Obama has ruled that religious organizations must provide abortion and contraceptive services to all their employees, even if such services violate their beliefs and go against conscience. This is the type of war Satan is waging. He is seeking to form all men into one homogenous lump, one which is depraved, and wicked, calling evil good and good evil. There will no longer be allowed any room for one nation, or people, to be more righteous than another. All nations are being pressured to embrace abominations, while characterizing those nations with moral scruples as backwards and repressive.
Recently there was reported in the news the fact that some African nations retain laws that declare homosexuality to be criminal activity that is punishable. These nations were lambasted as repressive and insensitive to human rights. Satan will permit no nation to retain its distinctiveness. He would break down the walls that Yahweh erected to preserve mankind from sinking into universal abominations and depravity. Nations will not be permitted to enact their own laws. They must adopt global laws and governance. They will not be able to preserve their own cultural values. The values of a global elite under the dominion of Satan will be thrust upon them.
In this way, the Patriots, those nations and tribes of people who love their cultures, their nations, their languages, their values and ways of life, will be overcome.
We live at the time of the end of the ages when these things are prophesied in Scripture to occur. The Giants had a score of 21 which is 3 times 7. The numbers 3 and 7 are both numbers denoting fulness and completion. The number 7 is especially related to the fulness of time, for the times of man are marked by weeks of 7 days, and the appointed times Yahweh gave to Israel in the Old Testament are 7 in number. The number 21 signifies that mankind has reached a fulness of time. We are at the time of the end when the earth must go through her birth pangs. Times of tribulation are at hand such as the world has never known. Except Yahweh had shortened those days, no flesh would survive, but for the sake of His elect, He has shortened those days.
The Patriots lost with a score of 17. I have written of the significance of this number many times. E.W. Bullinger records the following information about this number.
Indeed, it is the combination or sum of two perfect numbers—seven and ten—seven being the number of spiritual perfection, and ten of ordinal perfection.
Contrasted together the significance of these two numbers is clear; and when united in the number seventeen we have a union of their respective meanings, viz., spiritual perfection, plus ordinal perfection, or the perfection of spiritual order.
We see a beautiful illustration in ROMANS 8:35-39 which concludes the first great division of that all-important Epistle, and sums up the blessings of those who are dead and risen in Christ. First we have a series of seven, then a series of ten. The seven are marked off by being put in the form of a question, while the ten are given as the answer to it.
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall
as it is written, For Thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that,
Neither death (1),
Nor life (2),
Nor angels (3),
Nor principalities (4),
Nor things present (5),
Nor things to come (6),
Nor powers (7),
Nor height (8),
Nor depth (9),
Nor any other creature (10),
shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Thus is set forth the spiritual and eternal perfection of the believer's standing in Christ.
These list of 17 things denote that which the world, and particularly the saints of God, must endure in these last days. I have also remarked upon the number 17's relationship to the number 153. If you add each number between one and seventeen, their sum is 153. 153 is the number of fish that the disciples pulled up on the right side of the boat at the third appearance of Christ after His resurrection from the dead.
The fish represent men, for Christ told His disciples “I will make you fishers of men.” Christ entreated the disciples to bring of the fish to Him, and He laid them in the fire He had already prepared. These things are a parable of that refining work Christ must do among His elect in this last hour. They will be subjected to many fiery experiences, but He will watch over them carefully. He will not permit them to suffer loss. Not a hair of their heads will perish. These are spiritual words. Let the one who has ears to hear, hear what the Spirit of Christ is speaking.
