London Calling - Legions Arise - Thorns of Vengeance

Joseph Herrin (08-14-2012)

Warning: This blog post contains dark material from Satan’s kingdom. It will be disturbing to some readers. (It is disturbing to me.) We live in a very evil hour, and things are swiftly growing darker. This information is not presented to titillate, nor for entertainment. It is to reveal the lateness of the hour that the saints of God might walk wisely and put away the vain pursuits of their lives lest they be unprepared and swept away in the coming storm.

This post ends my commentary on the XXX Olympiad, the 2012 London Olympics. The closing ceremony was held on August 12th. If you missed the previous posts on the London (Babylon as Zion) Olympics, you can find the posts here:

The Olympics have from their inception in ancient Greece been devoted to Satan in his guise as Zeus/Jupiter. It is therefore inevitable that any commentary on these events will be dark and disturbing to those who are children of the light and lovers of all that is pure, holy, and righteous. I would caution any saint from making the study of Satan’s kingdom their pursuit, for spending too much time focused upon darkness is oppressive and has led some individuals into deception and a quenching of that spiritual life within them.

At the same time, the Scriptures themselves tell us much about Satan’s kingdom, and his evil plans and the darkness of his spirit. As I reflect upon those things I will be sharing in this particular post, the following words from the book of Revelation come to mind.

Revelation 12:10-12
"Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night... For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time."

The time is indeed short. Satan’s wrath is about to be loosed upon the earth, particularly upon the saints of God. It is an hour when the sons of God will need to manifest faith in their God. Sadly, multitudes have been so focused upon worldly pursuit, and have been captivated by false doctrines of comfort and prosperity, that they are quite fleshly. Satan is able to easily deceive, frighten, and oppress these spiritual infants who should have attained to a greater state of maturity that they might stand in readiness for this evil hour.

Throughout the entire London Olympics Satan has been boasting of those things he is about to do. He has found many evil men and women to join with him in seeking to establish a New World Order which is not new at all. The order of Satan was observed as far back as ancient Babel, the first city of Nimrod, and the beginning of Satan’s earthly kingdom. There has always been gross darkness associated with Babylon. It typifies all that is offensive to Yahweh, the God of creation.

Revelation 18:2-3
And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality."

These words aptly describe the city of London today. She is soon to become even more foul as the Olympic ceremonies served as occult rites to summon forth evil spirits and foul legions from the underworld. From the ringing of the bells to commence the XXX Olympiad, the construction and inauguration of The Shard just prior to its opening, people issuing forth from under the roots of the tree atop Glastonbury Tor during the “dark satanic mills” portion of the opening ceremony (whose music was arranged by the group Underworld), to the very close of the games, there has been an emphasis upon summoning forth the legions of darkness. The parallel release of The Dark Knight Rises movie with its similar theme of underground legions who arise to strike terror into those dwelling above ground further reveals the message being set forth by Satan.

It is not unusual to find major corporations echoing the same message, for the powers that are at work to bring forth the New World Order control the majority of multi-national corporations in this world. Just prior to the Olympics British Airways released the following advertisement.

British Airways Advert Link:
http://youtu.be/M6VzhDE1Wso



The song being played during this commercial is London Calling by the British group The Clash. Following are the complete lyrics to this song with the words contained in the commercial underlined.

London Calling

London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look to us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Except for the ring of the truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun's of an end
Meltdown expected the wheat is growing thin
Engines stop running but I have no fear
Cause London is drownin' and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding now and draw another breath
London calling and I don't wanna shout
But while we were talking I saw you runnin' out
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes
The ice age is coming, the sun's of an end
Engines stop running the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error but I have no fear
Cos London is drowning and I live by the river
Now get this
London calling, yes I was there too
An' you know what they said - well some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
An' after all this, won't you give me a smile?
London calling...
I never felt so much a' like a like a like a...

Let none suppose that this specific song was chosen on a lark by some advertising executive. It was chosen with great intent due to the message it proclaims. As one observes the images in the commercial and how they coincide with specific lyrics, it is plain that great thought has gone into this media piece.

At one point you can see the British Airways jet passing in front of a statue of a chariot in which stands a rider holding a spear. At that very moment the words “war is declared” are being sung. The statue is a famous London landmark of Queen Boudica.

















Queen Boudica

Wikipedia provides the following information.

Boudica (d. AD 60 or 61) was queen of the British Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.

Boudica's husband Prasutagus, ruler of the Iceni tribe who had ruled as a nominally independent ally of Rome, left his kingdom jointly to his daughters and the Roman Emperor in his will. However, when he died, his will was ignored — the kingdom was annexed as if conquered, Boudica was flogged, her daughters were raped, and Roman financiers called in their loans.
[Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudica]

Note in particular the role of Rome’s bankers in this matter. We stand at an hour in history when once more the financiers will use policy to establish global governance. It will also be a time of rape, warfare, and great slaughter. Satan will stir up every power of the underworld to bring forth chaos upon this earth.

















British Airways - The Shard - London Calling to the Underworld

With great purposefulness we find that in this commercial the words “London calling to the underworld” are sung just as The Shard comes in view. The Shard, now the tallest building in Western Europe, bears a close association to calling forth evil and malignant forces. Following is an excerpt from Babylon Rising - Part Six:

To understand what The Shard represents, one can look to one of the chief instruments Satan has used in this past generation to introduce mankind to the worship of Satan. It is the boardgame called Dungeons and Dragons. An entire industry has arisen alongside this board game which includes numerous books that describe the worlds found in Dungeons and Dragons. R.A. Salvatore has sold over 15 million books, many of which are related to this fantasy role playing game. Among these books are the novels The Crystal Shard, Passage to Dawn, The Silent Blade, and Servant of the Shard. All of these novels take as a central element a relic called Crenshinibon, also known as “The Shard.” A wikipedia entry on this item includes the following information.

Crenshinibon is an evil, sentient artifact in the Forgotten Realms setting based on the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game....

Crenshinibon is a vile relic of immense power, a crystal shard that draws its magical energy from the light of the sun. Crenshinibon is a sentient artifact, and it possesses a never-ending hunger for power and glory at whatever cost; therefore, Crenshinibon is not a reasoning being. It always desires a powerful wielder, usually a corruptible magic-user of some sort, and greatly enhances that wielder’s powers. The Crystal Shard also insidiously manipulates its wielder and would readily abandon him or her for someone more capable of furthering its goals of ultimate conquest. The relic can lure in thousands of evil-intentioned beings with its magical call, creating a grand army for its wielder and so-called master.
[End Excerpt]

The creator of this British Airways commercial understood very well the relationship between The Shard and the words “London is calling to the underworld.”

Immediately after this, the words “Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls” is sung as the legs of a young woman are seen who has evidently just gotten out of the shower. This serves as an invitation to engage in sexual wantonness and deviant behavior. The words “Come out of the cupboard” are equivalent to the American saying “Come out of the closet.”

Whether this is in reference to homosexuality, transgender deviancy, pedophilia, adultery or fornication, Satan is able to keep the world mollified by setting their focus upon sex, sex and more sex. Remember, this has been the XXX Olympiad. A story released a few days ago stated that the London Olympics Organizing Committee ordered 150,000 condoms to be distributed free to the 10,000 athletes staying in the Olympic Village for two weeks. This is an increase of 50,000 from the Beijing Olympics. Reports abound that the atmosphere of the Olympic village is that of one endless orgy.

Galatians 5:19-21
The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (NIV)

The acts of the sinful nature have been present in abundance during the Olympic games in London. Satan’s kingdom stands in stark contrast to the kingdom of God. There is a breakdown of all moral restraint as people increasingly give themselves over to sensuality, living as beasts on a purely physical plane. This song by The Clash contains mention after mention of the demise of society as it descends into chaos.

It is significant that the tail of the plane is in view as a church and an open market come into focus. The tail symbolizes “the end.” The open market includes a produce stand. The words “have bitten the dust” end this segment. What seems to be indicated is that the church is at an end, free and open markets will be crushed, and food will be hard to find. This will be due both to worldwide famine, as well as strict government control of the sale of all foodstuffs. In a portion of the lyrics to London Calling that did not make it into the commercial, there is a line about “the wheat growing thin.” This is an obvious reference to famine.

Why would British Airways use such a disturbing, apocalyptic song in its advertisement for the Olympics? Certainly if one wanted to extol the virtues of London they could hardly have picked a worse song. There is nothing positive, inviting, or attractive described in the lyrics. The BBC website has this to say about the song being selected by British Airways.

London Calling is a post-apocalyptic radio message to the survivors, a concept familiar to anyone who's seen a zombie movie or any of the 1970s' abundant disaster fiction. There's even, at the end, guitar feedback sending a signal in Morse code - naturally, "SOS..."

"London Calling is a classic example of a song that has become so familiar that its original meaning has been lost," says Gray. "It's instantly recognisable and superficially the perfect invitation to the capital and the world's premiere sporting event, but it's actually about the end of the world, at least as we know it."
[Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14324385]

The words “London Calling” are a reference to the British Broadcasting Corporation’s tag line during World War II when they were broadcasting into occupied territory. What is being prophetically indicated is that the earth is about to descend into worldwide bloodshed, chaos and war once again. Remember, the great military presence in London during the games. There were even warships anchored in the Thames River and rocket launchers installed among the city’s high rise apartments. War is surely coming, and not a small local war. It will be a war of worldwide impact.

During the closing ceremonies there was much use made of newsprint. It covered everything, floors, walls, vehicles. The newsprint contained various messages, such as the following:

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

A brave new world

Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the Light

Look Back in Anger














British Singer George Michael Standing Amid the Headlines

Over and over, the emphasis was upon death and dying. Notice in the picture above the words “tired of life” just below the singer’s feet. The death imagery was quite often very open. Look more closely at the belt buckle worn by George Michael, and take note of the fact that he was dressed in black, the color of death.

















Death Head Buckle

Then there was the strange fixation upon dead musicians such as Freddie Mercury and John Lennon. In an echo of the eerie baby head featured in the opening ceremony, there was a large fragmented head that came together to form an image of the deceased John Lennon.


















Again we see this overlaid atop newspaper print, and the mind associates this with the obituary section.

One of the most disturbing images from the closing ceremony was of a ship of death manned by black clad figures who appeared evil and ghoulish.
















The Olympic committee promised that the closing ceremony would be a big, festive, celebration. Yet it appears that the party was celebrating death, rather than life.

















Olympic Zombies

It is at times difficult to perceive the clear message that Satan is presenting in forums such as the Olympics. The reason for this is that the masses are presented all things in symbolic speech lest they be offended or frightened. To understand Satan’s message more plainly one can look to those groups that are indoctrinated into the darkness and have embraced it. Such ones are not offended by the overt worship of Satan as god, nor are they disturbed by the emphasis on death and destruction.

One place that people can find the words of Satan being proclaimed very clearly in this hour is in Satanic heavy metal bands. One such band is called Arch Enemy. The band name is a reference to Satan the “Arch” angel, the Enemy of God and mankind. The lead singer is a woman whose name is Angela. (Note the “Angel” in her name, a reference to a certain fallen angel.) In 2011, this group put out an album titled Khaos Legions. The Legions are a reference to the demonic hordes under the rule of Lucifer.

Mark 5:6-9
Seeing Yahshua from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him; and shouting with a loud voice, he said, "What business do we have with each other, Yahshua, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!" For He had been saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" And He was asking him, "What is your name?" And he said to Him, "My name is Legion; for we are many."

Lest some should think that a group like Arch Enemy is obscure, they need only look to how many views there are on YouTube for their posted songs. The videos have been viewed by millions. They are clearly demonic. The lead singer, though female, sounds like a demon possessed male as she screeches out the lyrics of the songs. As one reads the lyrics it is apparent that they are spoken by Satan, and his legions. If you want to know plainly what Satan is speaking at this hour, the same message that is cryptically set forth at the Olympics, read the following lyrics from the following songs that appear on the Khaos Legions album.























Arch Enemy - Khaos Legions Album

Note the rings in this image above. The smaller rings are reminiscent of the Olympic rings. The large ring in the center is reminiscent of The London Eye whose image was included in the closing ceremony. It is perhaps not coincidental that the people on the cover are wearing gas masks, and it was reported that the shooter in Aurora at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises also was wearing a gas mask. Also note the combat gear, flak jacket, etc., which the shooter also was reported to be wearing. This gives one an indication of the type of chaos that is coming.

Song One
Khaos Overture

From the ashes of a corrupt undying world
They raise like a phoenix
A godless entity
They are the Khaos Legions
[End of Song]

Now consider the image at the end of the closing ceremony as the Olympic cauldron was being extinguished. Arising from the flames was the image of a phoenix.
















Phoenix Rising

Remember that this entire Olympics contained rituals and images relating to calling forth evil spirits. This included a special bell fashioned for these events that was inscribed with the words of Caliban, the spawn of the devil, from Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. This bell was rung at the open and close of the games. Bells are used in occult rituals to enhance communication between the human realm and the spirit realm. All of England was invited to join in the bell ringing at 8:12 A.M. at the start of the Olympics and I believe the summons was answered on August 12 (8/12) at the close of the Olympics. Read again the lyrics to this song:

From the ashes of a corrupt undying world
They raise like a phoenix
A godless entity
They are the Khaos Legions

It is hard to discern the darkness of this evil group and its music by reading the lyrics alone. I am including a link to a YouTube video with the next song from this album. I warn the reader that the video is spiritually dark and may be disturbing to some. The lyrics are written as if they are being spoken by Satan and his demonic hordes.

Song Two
Yesterday Is Dead And Gone
http://youtu.be/rRkc08_dR-0



The fire's inside us tonight
These bridges will burn so bright
Tomorrow bears our name
No more power games

Reaching for the light beyond
We will rise through the dark again (Reference to The Dark Knight Rises)
Ready to fight for what we believe to be right
Yesterday is dead and gone

Rattling the chains - shaking the cage
Heed our war cry
Let there be no doubt - we want out
This is reckoning day

We are standing in the flames
Reaching for the sky
Fight to the end
Yesterday is dead and gone

Under a blood red sky
Our voice will be heard in a world

Where compassion is lost (See Matthew 24:12)
You try to control us
This is so absurd
Freedom will be won at any cost

Yesterday is dead and gone
[End of Song]

Did you note the words “Freedom will be won at any cost”? The word Freedom was displayed in huge letters across the Olympic Stadium during the closing ceremonies.
















People of God, this is not a declaration of freedom for liberty loving mankind. It is a declaration of demonic liberation. The Khaos Legions are coming forth and the result will be repression for Christians and all who stand for morality and righteousness. The freedom being declared is the demonic kind. It is unrestrained immorality. It is violence and decadence in the extreme. This is the freedom born out of rebellion towards Yahweh and the kingdom of His Son. This becomes very evident in the third song from this album.

Song Three
Bloodstained Cross

Gripping the strength of belief
Old tales and lies you trust (Mocking the gospel message)
In the end there is no relief
A final breath you're breathing dust (speaking of Christ’s final breath on the cross)

Get up off your praying knees (a message to Christians)
The door is about to slam shut
Armageddon, drawing near (Song “Armagideon Time” is flipside of London Calling)
As darkness engulfs your soul

All the prayers in this world
Won’t help you now

You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross (An accusation against the Son of God)
You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross

A perverted truth your reality
Forced your beliefs on the weak
Power twisted by years of abuse
The strong shall inherit the meek

Get up off your praying knees
The door is about to slam shut
Armageddon, drawing near
As darkness engulfs your soul

All the prayers in this world
Won’t help you now

You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross
You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross

You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross
You deceived, they believed
In your bloodstained cross

All the prayers in this world
Won't help you now
[End of Song]

These are the words of the legions that have been summoned forth. Their hatred toward Yahweh, and defiant spirit is revealed in the fourth song from the album.

Song Four
Under Black Flags We March

Your hate is our trigger
Revolution now
The more we have to suffer
The more we will fight

With our fists up in the air!

Legions marching ready to fire
These streets will burn - let the black flag rise
Legions marching ready to fire
Empires of corruption - crash and fall

Under black flags we march...

The voice of rebellion calls your name
Servants of the truth are standing tall

With our fists up in the air!

Legions marching ready to fire
These streets will burn - let the black flag rise
Legions marching ready to fire
Empires of corruption - crash and fall

Legions marching ready to fire
These streets will burn - let the black flag rise
Legions marching ready to fire
Empires of corruption - crash and...
[End of Song]

People of God, this is not only the message plainly declared on this album, it is the message that was set forth at the Olympics in its various ceremonies. The streets will burn. Remember the molten metal flowing in the streets in the opening ceremony to form the Olympic ring? Remember the images of the dark satanic mills and the smell of sulphur pumped into the stadium? Remember the many images of death among children and adults? Satan is declaring that mankind’s worst nightmare is coming even as the children in the opening ceremony were oppressed by evil images in their dreams.

Following are the words to the fifth song from the Khaos Legions album.

Song Five
No Gods, No Masters

Here I am, back to the wall,
I picked the fight against the time,
Free at last I go my own way,
I will resist them, till the day I die,
I am who I am; my time has come. (Note that “I am who I am” is mimicking what Yahweh said of Himself to Moses.)

I am who I am, take it or leave it, (Satan declares himself god of this world)
A rebel at heart,
No gods, no masters,
My time has come.

There is no second place,
No perfect world,
Your head is whole,
Freedom in your heart,
Be strong; take this chance,
Make your way; a better future comes.
I am who I am; my time has come.

I am who I am, take it or leave it,
A rebel at heart,
No gods, no masters,
My time has come.
No gods, no masters.

What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.
Locked and loaded ready to strike,
You stand loud and proud, united as one.

I am who I am, take it or leave it,
A rebel at heart,
No gods, no masters,
My time has come.
[End of song]

I am going to include one last song from this album. It is number 13, which is a number of great significance to Satanists. This song expresses the heart of Satan and the great wrath He has toward God and His people at this hour. Before reading it, let me remind you of the song that was chosen by the Olympic Committee as its main theme. This song titled Survival by the group Muse gives voice to Satan. It speaks of the spirit of vengeance. This song was played every time the athletes entered the Olympic Stadium. Following is a portion of that song.

Muse – Survival Lyrics

Race, life’s a race
And I am gonna win
Yes, I am gonna win

And I’ll light the fuse
And I’ll never lose
And I choose to survive
Whatever it takes
You won’t pull ahead
I’ll keep up the pace
And I’ll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes I am prepared
To stay alive
I won’t forgive, the vengeance is mine
And I won’t give in
Because I choose to thrive
[End Lyrics]

Song thirteen on the Khaos Legions album is titled Vengeance is Mine. Again, these words are spoken in mockery of Yahweh as Satan speaks them in defiance. The Scriptures state:

Romans 12:19
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

Here is Satan’s declaration:

Song Thirteen
Vengeance Is Mine

Infestation
Of spirit and flesh

Indignation
Is all you left me with

Domination
Your ultimate goal

Transmigration
You will lose control

I will rise up and prove you wrong
I have been waiting in the shadows for too long

The gates are opening - My true self unleashed

Laceration
Of my mind and soul

Alteration
Your truth is full of lies

Liberation
Sweet revenge is mine

Devastation
You will burn in my hell

I will rise up and prove you wrong
I have been waiting in the shadows for too long

The gates are opening - My true self unleashed

Vengeance is mine!

The gates are opening - My true self unleashed
[Source: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/archenemy/khaoslegions.html]

Satan’s true self was declared to us by the Son of God. It was Yahshua who said:

John 10:10
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy...”

John 8:44
“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Yes, now the true nature of Satan will be seen. He will come forth with great wrath knowing that his time is short. The ceremony and rites have been held. Satan’s legions have been summoned. Now the world will see what it is they have invited into their homelands.

A rite was carried out after this Olympics that has not been performed before. The Olympic cauldron was constructed of 204 smaller cauldrons. Each one was shaped like the thorn from a rose.













The 204 individual copper “thorns” are being sent home to each of the 204 nations that participated in the Olympics. Thorns are used in Satanic rites to symbolize “vengeance.” Woe to the nations, for they have brought fire into their bosoms. Satan has great wrath, and his time is short. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

Let the reader know that the hour is late. Let Yahweh be your refuge. Seek Him while He may be found.

Praise God! The enemy understands there's war coming against heaven and they're already preparing. Unfortunately, most Christians are asleep. This is certainly a wake up call. Thank you dear brother, thank you for your amazingly detailed, very insightful research.. This is EYE OPENING for sure... Wow! is all I can say. Thank God we have this revelation. Sarah Beveridge recently did a Blog on the cross and its power... The enemy knows the cross is where it all happened and they attack it.

Kim said...

I didn't allow myself to read the lyrics and a few other things, Joseph, but this is really chilling. Thank you for exercising your gift of unraveling parables. I so appreciate you. I have been lifting up so many and they seem to stay so...unmoved. They are definitely in a stupor and have no wish to wake up.

My immediate response to seeing this head was to associate with the "head" discovered on Mars. Whether or not the Martian head is real of an optical illusion, the image is widespread enough to make the association: do we have an esoteric reference to war in heaven descending to Earth?

I thought this video was a fitting close to the olympic, while everyone stood around laughing and Serena was quoted as saying "maybe it just wanted to hug me 'cuz it was so happy" referring to the US FLAG mishap.
Only those with eyes and ears open to Yahweh will truly understand the significance.

As my husband & I watched the Closing Ceremony, I repeatedly commented to him, "This is really weird." As the program went on, I became more disturbed by it, though I couldn't exactly say why. It just felt so wrong. Thank you, Joseph, for putting words to what I saw. I am so incredibly grateful that I am NOT one of his minions.

An article in the Oregonian from Portland, Oregon discusses the pagan liturgy featured in the closing to the 2012 Paralympics. The article also discusses a pagan gathering in Portland and a popular TV show with strong pagan elements filed in Portland.
