Babylon Rising - Part Eight - Storm Warning

Joseph Herrin (07-29-2012)















A number of people have written to ask for my thoughts concerning the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. I do not own a television, and have not found a video of the opening ceremony online, but I have read some accounts and viewed pictures. These have given me an imperfect perception of the full scope of the opening ceremony, but it has been sufficient to discern many dark and evil things that are coming upon the world.

If you have not read my other posts on the Olympics, you can find them here:

There is a great deal of symbolism surrounding these Olympic Games, and all of it is dark and evil. I find no delight in focusing upon such things, but it seems needful for the saints to understand the hour they live in and those things which are occurring.

It is possible to spend too much time focused upon darkness. Our surest source of discerning the hour we live in is Yahweh Himself. That which Satan sets forth as his testimony is often misleading and intentionally deceptive. There is reason to be cautious about attending too much to scrutinizing what dark things Satan is doing. When one starts to plumb “the deep things of Satan” (Revelation 2:24) they will inevitably be led to look into Kaballah, Freemasonry, Witchcraft, Devil Worship, Astrology, Tarot, and a host of other works of darkness in order to puzzle out what Satan is up to.

I have myself made mention of many of these things in my writings, while being intimately acquainted with none of them. My exposure to the deep things of Satan is generally limited to an Internet search on some word or phrase, and making connections without wading too deeply into the quagmire of profane practices. I do not wish to be an expert in Kabbalistic teachings, of witchcraft, sorcery, or any other work of darkness. My lifelong study and greatest immersion has been in the study of the holy Scriptures.

From the time of my youth I was an avid student of the Bible. As a young teenager I was memorizing dozens of Scriptures and even whole chapters of the Bible. When I was about 14 years old I got hold of a Strong’s Concordance, a Bible dictionary, a Nave’s Topical Bible, and a few other resources and I spent hundreds of hours poring over the word of God and doing topical studies on subjects I wanted to understand better. Hundreds of hours have now become thousands of hours spent in Biblical studies. I have read hundreds of books and writings from the saints, and I continue to seek my heavenly Father to be guided into truth and delivered from error. These things keep me grounded.

Of course, it is not possible to ignore Satan. He is the ruler of this fallen world system. As Christians, we live in the midst of the kingdom of darkness, although we are citizens of the kingdom of light. I walk through this Babylonian landscape as an alien and a stranger, and I cannot help but observe the darkness around me. Nevertheless, I do not want to make the darkness my main focus. I desire to report what is beneficial for the saints to understand, and then continue to build them up in all that is righteous, true, and holy. We must keep a balance between the following admonitions of the apostle Paul.

Ephesians 5:11-12
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Here then is what I would expose of the darkness to you that you might perceive the wickedness of these days and walk as those who are wise, redeeming the time for the days are evil.

The God of the Olympics

Ever wonder what the Olympic torch and flame is all about? It relates back to the story of Prometheus stealing fire from Zeus and giving it to mankind. In the post titled “A Rockefeller Christmas” I shared the following.























Wisdom  - Rockefeller Center

One can at times be helped to discern the origin and the hidden esoteric meaning of a symbol by looking at how those who are known workers of darkness employ them. The image I want to examine in this post is that of the Christmas tree. Hopefully, some readers will perceive its Luciferian connection through what is presented here, and will thereby escape from the deception foisted upon the masses.

The Rockefeller family is well known to be filled with Illuminists who are striving to bring forth a New World Order. In the utopia they envision, the entire world is under one government.

A lifelong globalist, due to the strong influence of his father, he had at an early age further spread his connections when he was invited to attend the inaugural elitist Bilderberg Group meetings, starting with the Holland gathering in 1954. He has been a consistent attendee through the decades and has been a member of the "steering committee", which determines the invitation list for the upcoming annual meetings. These have frequently included prominent national figures who have gone on to be elected as political leaders of their respective countries including Bill Clinton who first attended in 1991.


David Rockefeller joined the Council on Foreign Relations as its youngest-ever director in 1949 and subsequently became chairman of the board from 1970 to 1985; today he serves as honorary chairman.


In 2002 Rockefeller authored his autobiography “Memoirs” wherein, on page 405, Mr. Rockefeller writes: “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
[Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Rockefeller]

It is not Yahweh, or His Son Yahshua, who are the inspiration for this push for a one world government. It was Yahweh who divided mankind into peoples and tongues and tribes and nations. This was done to deter them from pursuing a unified course of sin that would lead to immense destruction, perversion, and blasphemy. Mankind was divided at the Tower of Babel. Ever since that time, Satan has worked to bring back a united world where he would be seated as its ruler. He is seeking to restore Babel, which in the New Testament is referred to as Babylon. (Note: This is the great emphasis of the Olympics. Uniting mankind into one common people.)

Those who are laboring for a one world government are servants of Lucifer. They would characterize their labors as benevolent, and for the good of mankind and the earth. Though the majority of people on the globe do not desire this restructuring of the world under one great architect, these Illuminists believe they have superior wisdom and knowledge, and are justified in forcing their ends upon the masses.

The Bible recounts the fall of Lucifer from heaven, and his subsequent deception of the woman. In the Garden of Eden Satan appears in the form of a serpent. The word serpent comes from the same root as the word sapient, which means “wise.” Satan promised the woman wisdom that would benefit her, making her like God. In truth he came only to kill, steal and destroy. Eve was beguiled by the Lucifer.

Genesis 3:13
Then Yahweh God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

The Bible reveals that Satan ever seeks to present himself as the benevolent bringer of wisdom to mankind. Those who are disciples of Lucifer have cast him in an altogether different light. To them, Lucifer is mankind’s champion. The wisdom he possesses is given to man for humankind’s progress and blessing. The following quotation from a self-professed Luciferian, reveals the mindset of those, like Rockefeller, who are servants of this fallen dignitary.

The Devil—Lucifer—is a force for good (where I define ‘good’ simply as that which I value, not wanting to imply any universal validity or necessity to the orientation). ‘Lucifer’ means ‘light-bringer’ and this should begin to clue us in to his symbolic importance. The story is that God threw Lucifer out of Heaven because Lucifer had started to question God and was spreading dissension among the angels. We must remember that this story is told from the point of view of the Godists (if I may coin a term) and not from that of the Luciferians (I will use this term to distinguish us from the official Satanists with whom I have fundamental differences). The truth may just as easily be that Lucifer resigned from heaven...


God, being the well-documented sadist that he is, no doubt wanted to keep Lucifer around so that he could punish him and try to get him back under his (God’s) power. Probably what really happened was that Lucifer came to hate God’s kingdom, his sadism, his demand for slavish conformity and obedience, his psychotic rage at any display of independent thinking and behavior. Lucifer realized that he could never fully think for himself and could certainly not act on his independent thinking so long as he was under God’s control. Therefore he left Heaven, that terrible spiritual-State ruled by the cosmic sadist Jehovah, and was accompanied by some of the angels who had had enough courage to question God’s authority and his value-perspective.


Lucifer is the embodiment of reason, of intelligence, of critical thought. He stands against the dogma of God and all other dogmas. He stands for the exploration of new ideas and new perspectives in the pursuit of truth.

The image at the top of this blog is found over one of the doors of Rockefeller Plaza. It is called Wisdom, but actually is a depiction of Satan in the guise of one who brings wisdom and knowledge to mankind. The quotation declares, “Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times.” It is the age-long promise of becoming like God through the acquisition of heavenly mysteries, and Lucifer would present himself as the keeper of this wisdom.

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 shall be according to their deeds.

That Lucifer had great wisdom and knowledge is declared in the Scriptures.

Ezekiel 28:12-17
"You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God... You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. By the abundance of your trading you became filled with violence within, and you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,From the midst of the fiery stones. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground...

Lucifer’s wisdom, once perfect, became perverted by self-seeking. When he appears in Eden in the form of a serpent we find this wisdom described by the word “cunning.”

Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made.

The word cunning speaks of a wisdom that has been defiled by conceit. The apostle Paul, writing to Timothy, gives instructions for appointing elders among the assembly of believers. He warns him with the words, “and not a new convert, lest he become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil” (I Timothy 3:6).

We see the same traits in those who are the chief disciples of the devil this day. They too are corrupted by the abundance of their trading. They seek to enrich themselves, and they esteem themselves worthy of a much higher position than that of other men. Even as Satan sought to ascend to the throne of God, so too do these men seek to ascend, placing the rest of mankind and creation under their feet.

The Rockefellers are Luciferians, championing this fallen angelic being as a bringer of wisdom and knowledge to mankind. Their esteem of Lucifer is revealed in the artwork found at Rockefeller Center.


















Prometheus Bringing Sacred Fire to Man

The statue of Prometheus bringing fire down from heaven and giving it to mankind, is one of the most evident pieces of art found on the Rockefeller Center complex. It is a re-telling of the story of Lucifer who offered to mankind the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. An Internet website shares the following commentary on this statue found on the Rockefeller property.

This statue depicts Prometheus, a Titan of Greek mythology known for his great intelligence. He has however betrayed the god Zeus by stealing fire and giving it to mankind. He is credited to have taught mankind the arts of civilization such as writing, mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and science. Zeus then punished Prometheus for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.


Paul Manship’s sculpture featured in the Sunken Plaza of the Rockefeller Center portrays Prometheus holding the fire stolen from Zeus and gliding towards humanity. He lies inside a ring in which are outlined the signs of the Zodiac. Behind the statue is an inscription saying:


“Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends.”
[Source: http://vigilantcitizen.com/?p=329]

Substitute the name Prometheus for Lucifer, and you will perceive the true substance of this monument. Lucifer was judged by God, not for a benevolent act on behalf of mankind. Lucifer’s fall actually occurred prior to Adam and Eve’s residency in Eden. It is described by the prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 14:12-14
"How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'”

It is necessary to understand this history of Satan’s fall in order to properly perceive the symbolism present in the Christmas tree. It will perhaps come to some people’s minds that it is traditional to either place an angel or a star atop the Christmas tree. Though these symbols are commonly related back to the birth of Christ, this is merely the deceit of Satan. The star, and the angel, and  his own image. That the star and angels are commonly lighted relate to his name Lucifer which means “light bearer.”

The Rockefellers are far from being champions of Christ. If the Christmas tree were a symbol of the birth of the Son of God, then why would the Rockefellers have established a tradition of placing one of the largest, most expensive Christmas trees in the world in a central location at Rockefeller Center? There are no other symbols of Christ present. However, there are a great many symbols relating to Lucifer. Note the close proximity of the statue of Prometheus and the Christmas tree below.

















   





Rockefeller Christmas Tree w/Prometheus Carrying Fire

These two symbols are very much linked to one another. There is no disparity in the minds of Illuminists. To them the image of this fallen bringer of forbidden knowledge, and the lighted tree behind it, tell one and the same story.
[End Excerpt]

The Olympic torch is a symbol of that “aid” and forbidden knowledge Satan has brought to mankind. The Olympic ceremony in every city begins with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron for these are celebrations of Lucifer, the light bearer, bringing the light of his wisdom to mankind.

At the London Olympics the opening ceremony depicted the light of Satan being passed from one generation to another.

















Passing the Flame

That new generation receiving the light of Satan then takes that light and spreads it to create a greater light to light all the nations (which are symbolically gathered all around.















Lighting Olympic Cauldron in London

If you have any doubts regarding this symbolism of the flame representing the wisdom of Satan given to mankind, consider that the stadium this event is occurring in is surrounded by pyramid shaped light structures. These mimic the Illuminati symbol of the all-seeing eye with the out-raying light emanating from it. This symbolizes Satan, and those who ascend to apprehend that dark wisdom he offers to mankind.
















Olympic Stadium



















All Seeing Eye

This same symbol is found in the characters created to represent the London Olympics.













Olympic Mascots

Note that not only do these mascots bear the all-seeing eye, the character on the left has a pyramid on his head. The pyramid has an eye on it, which is also found on the forehead of the second character. This is what is referred to as a “third eye.” It represents that state of spiritual illumination that many occultists and people of false religions seek.


















Chakra Chart

There have been many comments about the ugly beret type hats worn by the American athletes as they entered the Olympic Stadium. Such garb was not chosen randomly.























One commentator asked, “How do these hats possibly represent American style?” Americans have never been known to wear this type of garb. Look closer at these hats.















Third Eye Hats

I suppose it was easier to get the Americans to wear these hats than to convince them all to get a round circle tattooed on their foreheads.

Satan holds forth the promise to mankind of opening up god-like spiritual powers within them. Yet, the light and wisdom Satan promotes is darkness. Yahshua warned:

Luke 11:35
“Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.”
                           
There was a repeating emphasis on this ascension of man to a higher plane throughout the opening ceremonies. One of the key landscape features was a recreation of Glastonbury Tor. William Blake based his words that are found in the hymn Jerusalem upon the false tradition that Jesus visited England during his youth. Fable recounts the visit of Jesus to this hill, which continues to be an occult landmark to this day. Glastonbury Tor is a mound, not unlike a pyramid in shape. During the ceremony we find that the flags of all the nations are planted on its slopes.


















Glastonbury Tor

Note that a single tree stands atop the hill. This detail differs from the actual site, for there is a roofless tower atop the real Glastonbury Tor. It is not hard to imagine what the tree represents. Satan has been enticing man with forbidden knowledge since the Garden of Eden.

The concept of the New Age Messiah is that Christ is an ascended master. As such, this false messiah stands as an example of what all mankind may aspire to become. Satan offers to show mankind the way, the path to ascend and enter into a god-like state. Satan brings the light of heaven even as Prometheus brought forbidden knowledge to mankind. In turn, Satan depicts Yahweh, the true Creator and God as a cruel tyrant seeking to keep men enslaved in ignorance and darkness, while waging a cruel warfare against Satan and his angels who seek only to aid mankind in attaining to his apotheosis, his ascendancy to godhood.















New Age/Illuminati Messiah
(Image from video I, Pet Goat 2)

(Note that there is disturbing imagery in this video. Not suitable for children.)

For an explanation of some of the symbolism of this Illuminati video see the following links:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGkFPqS6PbU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO8QsK6KzbE

You may note the image of the church building in the background in the image above. Shortly after this scene the church crumbles and then the New Age Messiah rides in his boat toward the Golden Dawn of the New Age of Aquarius. Although this symbol of the church is Babylonian, it is a reference to the destruction that will come as Satan wages war on every visible aspect of true Christianity. As Babylon rises, Satan will seek to destroy the people of God.

Revelation 12:13-17
And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yahshua.

This warfare is even now commencing. It is perhaps not coincidental that the same week the Olympic Games open in London that the news is reporting that governors of three of America’s largest cities, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco are up in arms because the president of Chick-fil-A in an interview with Baptist Press stated that he is pro-family and supports the Biblical definition of marriage. Each of the mayors of these cities stated that Chick-fil-A is not welcome in their cities for the values of Chick-fil-A are not the values of their citizens. Thus the persecution begins! First it is Christian business leaders who are attacked. Soon it will be every person who espouses a Christian world-view.

Following are Dan Cathy’s ‘highly inflammatory’ words.

Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said Cathy when asked about the company's position.


"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.


"We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized.


"We intend to stay the course," he said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
[Source: http://www.bpnews.net/BPnews.asp?ID=38271]

The Mayor of Boston posted a letter urging Chick-fil-A to “stay out of Boston.” The media has characterized Chick-fil-A as “anti-gay” when Dan Cathy spoke only positive words affirming his belief in the Biblical definition of marriage. Since then the mayors of Chicago and San Francisco have followed suit, telling Chick-fil-A they are not welcome in their cities. It should be noted that the mayor of Chicago is Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s former chief of staff. Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters are also located in the city, in a building whose zip code is 60606. Following is a quote from Rahm Emanuel.

“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Emanuel said Wednesday according to the Sun-Times.
[Source: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/emanuel-chickfila-controversy-chicago/2012/07/26/id/446613]

I have often thought it strange that this man, who was Obama’s right hand, has the name Emanuel which means “God with us.” I have no doubt which god that Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama serve. It is the god of the Freemasons and Illuminati, of witches and sorcerers.

If you noted the picture titled Wisdom - Rockefeller Center, earlier in this post, you will observe a further tie in to these London Olympic games. This image was originally created by William Blake and titled Ancient of Days. It is not, however, an image of the God of Creation, but an image of Satan who, unlike man, is immortal and does not die. William Blake is the same man who wrote the lyrics to the hymn Jerusalem that includes the lyrics:
           
I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In England’s green and pleasant Land

This song was performed recently at the marriage of Prince William and Kathryn Middleton as the royal family and the nobility of the land sang along. Blake was a Freemason and Illuminist, and some believe it was he who actually authored the plays attributed to William Shakespeare. Whether this is true, or not, there is no doubt that Blake worshiped Satan as the god of this world. There is a “mental fight” being waged for the minds of men and women, and the “sword” will be unsheathed as Satan seeks to establish Babylon among the nations while calling it Zion.

Potters Fields

Moving on to a further detail of these games, a few days ago a brother in Christ shared with me some further information about these Olympics. The details were contained in a news article inviting people to the Olympics. Following is an excerpt:

Head to the Olympic festival at Potters Fields to take part in all the buzz and excitement of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
[Source: http://www.viewlondon.co.uk/whatson/olympic-festival-at-potters-fields-article-10569.html]

At the Potters Fields a huge outdoor venue with viewing screen is being set-up for the public who were unable to acquire tickets to the events held in the various stadiums and arenas. Those familiar with the Bible will recognize the name “Potter’s Field.”

Matthew 27:3-10
Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood."  And they said, "What is that to us? You see to it!" Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself. But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood." And they consulted together and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, and gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me."

The Potter’s Field became known as “The Field of Blood.” Something sinister is certainly being signified by this detail. The link to the Biblical account of the Potter’s Field is apparently intentional. Look closely at the following image from the website where this announcement has been made.























Notice that directly across from the words ‘Potters Fields,’ on the very same line, is the date 27 July 2012. In England the date is listed as DD/MM/YY. The date is 27/7. Where is “the potter’s field” first mentioned in the New Testament? It is in Matthew 27:7.

Matthew 27:7
And they consulted together and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.

I highlighted the word “strangers,” for it is the saints who are strangers to the kingdom of Satan, and it is they whom he would seek to slay.

In the Old Testament one of the sons of Jacob is named Judah. It is from the tribe of Judah that the Messiah came. The name Judah became a popular one among the descendants of Abraham. We find in the New Testament that it was a common name among the Jewish people in the days of the Messiah. Due to inconsistency’s in translation we find the name is rendered several ways in a single Bible version. For example, the KJV renders the name as Judah (Hebrews 8:8), Judas (Matthew 10:4), and Jude (Jude 1). All three variants are renderings of a single Hebrew name.

I mention this because another tie-in to the Potter’s Field (the Field of Blood) is observed in the song performed by John McCarthy during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in London. Sir Paul sang “Hey Jude.”















Hey Jude

Precisely what is intended by this link to that tract of land known as “the field of blood” in which strangers were buried, is unclear to me. However, it must be recognized that strangers must refer to Christians when one is looking at a venue controlled by Satan. Certainly it is Satan’s plan to cleanse the earth by killing all those who are disciples of Yahshua the Messiah.

Mark 13:19-20
For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will. Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

That the Olympics has a venue at Potters Fields would seem to suggest that a bloodbath is coming and Christians will be a main target.

Batten Down the Hatches!


















One message I sense coming from these Olympic games is that “A storm is coming.” In a recent post on the theater massacre at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, I made reference to one of the opening scenes of that movie. Following is an excerpt:



















A woman is dancing with Bruce Wayne, the billionaire who is secretly Batman. She tells Bruce Wayne that a storm is coming. She speaks of the evil of the rich hoarding their wealth and the discontented masses who will rise against them. Following are the exact words spoken in the movie trailer.

You think this will last. There’s a storm coming Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches. Because when it hits you are all going to wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.

Video Link: http://youtu.be/GokKUqLcvD8


[End Excerpt]

The phrase “batten down the hatches” is one employed by sailors. When a ship is sailing into stormy seas the captain will give the command to make everything secure, and to batten down the hatches. Following is the origin of this expression.

From the practice aboard a ship of sealing hatches to prevent water getting below-decks in a storm by using covers secured by strips of material, called battens, firmly attached to the frame of the hatch opening.
[Source: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/batten_down_the_hatches]

This expression conveys the meaning “Prepare for trouble.”

It is a time to prepare for trouble. As mentioned in a previous post, the London Olympics are centered around a theme from William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. This play opens with a storm battering a ship at sea. We learn that the storm is supernatural in nature, caused by a demonic spirit that has been sent out to do the bidding of the wizard Prospero on a nearby island.

It further “strikes” me as symbolic that the Olympics were rung in as every citizen in the nation was urged to ring bells (church bells, hand bells, door bells, alarm bells) beginning at 8:12 A.M. for three minutes. The Olympics also will end on August 12th (8/12 in America, or 12/8 if you are in England). Symbolically, the Minister of Culture was on a warship anchored in the Thames, along with hundreds of school age children to ring bells.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxWc4I9DSiU



Why would the focus intentionally be placed on a warship? Satan is a master of subtlety. He comes only to kill, steal and destroy. Tragically, young children are often the innocent victims of the wars, strife, and chaos diabolically conjured up by Satan. How deceitful for Satan to involve little children to ring bells to call forth that evil work he will accomplish in these days, knowing full well that millions of children will perish in the rising storm.

GOSH and The Death of Children

Mark 13:17
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

This leads me to comment on a particularly dark and disturbing feature of the opening ceremonies. The subtlety of Satan is such that he deceives the masses, even to getting them to participate in dark rituals, witchcraft, and the summoning forth of evil spirits without their being aware of what they are doing. Such was the case in the Olympic opening ceremonies. Throughout the show there were Satanic rites performed, all the while these things were being described as something far different.

An observer would do well to completely ignore the descriptions of the events portrayed in the ceremony and look only to what they see. What a deceit it was to suggest that the ceremonies paid tribute to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

















People of God, this was an international event. Why focus on a local hospital located in the city of London? What possible interest could this hold for the world? Nothing is as it seems when Satan is the master of ceremonies.

The website “etymology online” provides the following origin for the word “gosh.”

gosh: 1757, altered pronunciation of God. Probably from by gosse (mid-16c.).
[Source: http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=gosh]

What was being depicted before the nations was a message about the god of this world, Satan himself. Don’t forget that this event is taking place in London. As revealed in Babylon Rising - Part Five, Satan, the great dragon, is lord and ruler over those financial and world powers centered in London’s inner city.

http://parablesblog.blogspot.com/2012/02/babylon-rising-part-five-tisha-bav-and.html
















City of London Corporation, Coat of Arms

The Latin phrase “Domine Dirige Nos” translates to “Lord, Direct Us.” The “Lord” of London is plainly observed in the images of the dragons. Does a person really suppose that this diabolical spectacle being broadcast to the entire world has suddenly shifted from glorifying Satan to honoring a local hospital in London? From ancient times Satan has required those who worship him to sacrifice children. Do we not see this in profusion today as the nations under the dominion of Satan are practicing infanticide? In America alone, there have been 50-60 million babies aborted since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land in 1973. Next year will mark 40 years of this heinous slaughter, and judgment for all the blood shed will not delay any longer.

Look at the following pictures. If you heard none of the inane commentary offered up on the television networks, and saw only these images, what would be the impression on your mind? Would you envision something positive being declared about the future of children?

















Children Terror 1















Children Terror 2

Would these images make your child feel secure being left in th care of this hospital? The picture above depicts Captain Hook from the book Peter Pan. The proceeds from this book go to support the hospital. If your only familiarity with this story is watching the Disney version of it, you have not yet understood it, or its author. Following is some information culled from the Internet.























Pan

Who is Pan?
Pan is the demonic pagan god of sexual perversion, pedophilia and rape he’s also portrayed roaming through the forests, penis erect, drunk and lascivious, frolicking with nymphs and piping his way through the wild. We might say he ruled the lower nature of man, its animal side. The attributes or symbols associated with Pan are woods, pastures, umbrella, phallus and the flute(also called Pan flute). ..


I rave; and I rape and I rip and I rend
Everlasting world without end!
Mannikin, maiden, maenad, man,
In the might of Pan.”
– Hymns to Pan (1929) by Lead Satanist and Pan follower Aleister Crowley


Satan is not a black god, but negation of God … this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may represent evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force … under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer.
(Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma)

Pan/Baphomet

Note the “Olympic Torch” atop the head of this demonic image. Note also the star on the forehead where the third eye would be located. Was this image seen at the opening ceremony?














Forming the Pentagram

That Peter Pan is about child death, Barrie bluntly suggested in the program notes for the 1908 Paris production of the play: “Of Peter himself you must make what you will. Perhaps he was a little boy who died young, and this is how the author conceived of his subsequent adventures” (A. Birkin, J.M. Barrie & the Lost Boys, page 116). In Chapter 1 of Peter and Wendy, Mrs. Darling, on hearing of Peter from her children, dimly remembers from her own childhood “odd stories” about “a Peter Pan who . . . when children died . . . went part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened.” It seems, then, that the term lost boys is a euphemism for “dead boys” (notwithstanding their miraculous return to London at play’s end), who go to Neverland not by flying but by dying...


In the play (Act V, scene 1), although not in the novel, Hook declares, “A holocaust of children, there is something grand in the idea!

“A holocaust of children, there is something grand in the idea!”

Mary Poppins

Then there were the myriad of Mary Poppins characters flying through the air. I suspect you thought this was innocent as well, after all the Disney characterization of Mary Poppins made her appear very friendly and caring. If you have not read the story by Pamela Travers you would not likely know that Mary Poppins was a very cold and severe character in the book. The misleading dialogue of the ceremony would have the spectators to believe that Mary Poppins is coming to rescue the children from Voldemort. Do you really believe this is the message Satan intended? Following is some information on the author of Mary Poppins.

Born Helen Lyndon Goff in Queensland, Australia in 1899, the author claims to have been able to read by the age of three. She grew up, changed her name to Pamela L. Travers and tried her hand at acting but was not successful. In 1924, she moved to London where she made a living reporting on theater events.


It was here that she met the Irish intellectual, George William Russell, known as A. E. Russell, who was a follower of Madam Blavatsky and theosophy. (Theosophy, which has been condemned by the Church, is a modern version of gnosticism that blends pantheistic and occult beliefs.)


Apparently, Russell believed he and Travers had met in a former life, and formed a friendship with her, helping her to expand her circle of friends to include occultists such as G. I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky. He also introduced her to esoteric eastern religions and folklore, encouraging her to use her powers of fantasy to create stories.


Not surprisingly, her first Mary Poppins book, published in 1934, contained many of the occultic ideas that had by now permeated her life...


Helene Vachet of the Theosophical Society’s Quest Magazine clearly describes the theosophical meaning behind much of the symbolism and story of Mary Poppins.


“Mary Poppins, one could say, resembles a guardian angel, demon, or cosmic being who comes from time to time to visit Earth,” Vachet writes.


The sky and wind bringing Mary Poppins to Cherry Tree Lane refers to a “walker of the sky” described in theosophic writings as a siddhi, or spiritual power to which a yogi joins himself to “behold the things beyond the seas and stars” and to “hear the language of the devas.”


Travers’ Mary Poppins is referred to in the books as the “Great Exception,” which Vachet says means that “she has gone beyond the evolution of humanity and her life now stands in contrast to those who have not yet reached this stage...”


The zoo scene in the book is also filled with occultic imagery. In this episode, the animals run the zoo and all the people are in cages. The king of the animals is a huge hooded snake that Poppins calls “cousin.”

Mary Poppins (with her “Cousin”?)

If one listens to the oratory provided on the networks they would not perceive any common theme in the opening ceremonies. It all seems a mishmash of disparate events, images and stories. Yet, when one perceives the supernatural hand guiding the show it becomes cohesive. The games are fashioned after Shakespeare’s The Tempest. This play features a wizard using demonic spirits to accomplish what are reportedly benign and benevolent goals. In the story of Mary Poppins we have the main character carried on the wind, “a spiritual power to which a yogi joins himself.” This spiritual power is not of Christ, nor of His Father. It is a spiritual power of darkness. The foul smell of hell was even piped into the stadium. During one part of the program the smell of sulphur was piped into the arena, though I do not doubt that a large part of the smell came from demonic sources. The smell of sulphur carries great meaning.

Sulfur
The presence, and especially the smell, of sulfur is closely associated with the presence of demons. There are tales of sulfur-breathing demons, and other demons are thought to live in pits of sulfur and fire in hell.

The very atmosphere over the UK speaks both of the presence of unclean spirits and that storm that is about to fall upon mankind. Satan and those unclean spirits with him have been summoned. The Guardian, a popular English newspaper, featured the following news story.

























Note the serpentine lines of the Thames as it passes through London. This news article contained the following words:

"Regrettably, we have a perfect storm for smog this week...”
[Source: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/jul/25/london-2012-games-pollution]

When you consider that Satan is the prince of the power of the air, and unclean spirits, like birds, have been gathering over her in mass concentrations for these Olympic games, it seems more than coincidental that the very air over London is filled with pollution at this time.

Smog is linked to Satan and London in another way. The British author J.R.R. Tolkien in his book The Hobbit (to be released as a major movie on December 14th, 2012), included a character of a great dragon who menaced and laid waste the lands of men. The dragon’s name was Smaug.


















Smaug













   
Bell Ringing to Summon Spirits

This bell is inscribed with the words “Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises,” spoken by Caliban, a character from Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. Caliban was the offspring of Satan and a witch. As noted in an earlier post on the bell ringing ceremony all across the U.K., bells are used to summon spirits and to increase communication between man and dark spiritual forces. That the air above London is filled with smog at this time, and the smell of sulphur was piped into the Olympic Stadium during the opening ceremony, all give proof to the fact that powerful forces of wickedness are being summoned and unleashed upon the world at this time to fulfill Satan's desire.

Although I have not had time to ponder the esoteric message conveyed by all of the symbols in the opening ceremony, I do perceive a dark message. It is not the message that the media has led people to believe.

Babylon is known for its worship of the queen of heaven. Did the media reveal that the queen of heaven was being depicted in the ridiculous James Bond sequence? No! They were told it was all whimsical amusement.















The Queen Jumping Out of a Helicopter



















The Queen of Heaven Descending to Earth














Everyone Stands as the Queen Takes Her Seat

In the Babylonian story of Semiramis/Ishtar/Isis the queen is also said to have descended from heaven. The story goes that she came down in a giant egg and landed in the Euphrates. This is why we have Easter Eggs (Ishtar’s Eggs) today.













Mystic Egg of Astarte














Voldemort?

The images from this spectacle were truly dark and demonic. There was nothing true described here. It was all lies. There was nothing honorable, it was full of dishonor. There was nothing right, for all was evil. There was nothing pure, for all was as polluted as the sulphuric air of the stadium. There was nothing lovely. Can you look at the image above and contest this? There was nothing of good repute, no excellence, nothing worthy of praise, for this was a celebration of the kingdom of darkness.

Something dark and sinister was foretold in the images depicted. Something evil is being birthed. There was demonic seed portrayed as the forging of an Olympic ring.














Sperm Cell

There was what looked like a maternity ward scene with nurses and babies.

















Why use an inflatable baby?

















Baby Inflating

This baby looks like it has had its cranium cut open for there is a line all across the forehead. I do not claim to understand all of this, but do you not “blow up” inflatable items. Is this an image of “blowing up the baby?” The National Health Service of the United Kingdom has certainly ended the lives of a great many children. The NHS has performed millions of abortions in the UK.

The Abortion Act 1967 covers the UK mainland (England, Scotland and Wales) but not Northern Ireland. The law states that:


•    abortions must be carried out in a hospital or a specialised licensed clinic
•    two doctors must agree that an abortion would cause less damage to a woman's physical or mental health than continuing with the pregnancy

Consider the following webpage from the Great Ormond Street Hospital.














“The child first and always” - Abortion

The narrative here is as false and misleading as the dialogue during the opening ceremonies. The page heading says “The child first and always.” Below that abortion services are offered, and it is stated “In the UK more than half of pregnancies end in abortion for girls under 16.” Is it really in the child’s interest to promote abortion?

Captain Hook would surely be satisfied.

People of God, I am not inclined to spend much more time plumbing the “depths” of this Satanic cesspool. I do believe that this Olympics will mark a turning point and acceleration of Satan’s dark works in this earth. A storm is coming. Come out of the darkness. Realize that there are lies all around you. Let us walk in the light, for the days are evil.cc

I wonder if people asked themselves what in the world this opening ceremony has to do with sports? smh

BMO said...

I spent some time the last few weeks researching the symbolism of the olympics of 2012. There is such a clear message that was sent to those who have their eyes and ears open to the voice of our Father. I have never seen an opening ceremony of the Olympics because years ago I saw how much ritualism and idol worship goes into this event and all that leads up to it. I chose to stop watching them and all sports related events.
I did, however, tape this opening ceremony so that I could see it for myself as the devil again raises his "Babylonian Head". I was appalled by the entire event. You covered a great portion of the symbolism in this blog and did a great job tying it into scripture (as you always do).
I appreciate the time you put into your research and like you, I do not want to tary in this darkness for long. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to make it clear through this entire series. It takes a long time to go through this blog, but it is well worth it. May MANY eyes and ears be opened to Yahweh as He draws his sheep closer to the narrow road.... Thank you Bro. Herrin!

As you mentioned, the Olympic closing ceremonies are on August 12th.

Can it be just coincidence that both William Blake and Ian Flemming(creator of James Bond) both died on August 12th?

Your comments on smog reminded me of the Great Smog of 1952 that killed 12,000 Londoners. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Smog

As I was doing my own research in revealing the olympic symbolism, I realized that it can go too far into the darkness as well. How they use their occult practices and to see all those children involved sickened me. They made a Harry Potter generation and taught witchcraft and wizardry to that entire generation.

Woe unto them that call evil good,
and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
ISAIAH 5:20

Piggy-backing off the blog portion regarding the bell ringing, when asked to give a demonstration of the bell ringing, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt shakes the bell when all of a sudden it breaks off the handle, apparently almost hitting people nearby.

Also, I notice in one of the comments posted here the mentioning of "August 12th" (8/12). The city-wide bell ringing started at 8:12am.

Keep up the excellent work brother Joseph!

Joseph, thanks for all of your work, keep posting, brother.

There were quite a few references to storms in this (as in almost all types of media lately). There were two more

For example, when I was trying to recall where that song tubular bells came from I saw a quote about the movie that made it famous (The Exorcist--why play that in a scene with children????) and the movie site imdb claimed it "took the world by storm."

Just when the Frankie and June Thank Tim part came on, an old weather report flashed on the scene. IT was Michael Fish saying that no matter what anyone else said there wasn't going to be a storm (apparently, there was a literal killer storm after this report)--then the fake clouds over the set rained and you could hear the thunder on the speakers.

I keep thinking "as the days of Noah" and how the storm took so many by surprise.

Always praying...
