Joseph Herrin (12-24-2012)
I have been testifying for many years of the importance of the saints recognizing the hour in which they live. Much of my labors of late have been in the area of seeking to arouse the saints from slumber, to remove the scales from blind eyes, to sound an alarm to ears that have grown dull of hearing. I am confident that this is something the Father would have me as a watchman to do in this hour. I see the enemy’s approach. There is a great storm on the horizon. The deep darkness of night is about to descend upon the earth.
“We must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as it is day; night is coming, when no man can work.”
This is NOT an hour for the saints to be at ease. It is NOT a time in which to idly pass the days. The following words of the apostle Paul should be taken to heart by all of the elect and chosen of God at this hour.
And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Let me challenge you to answer the questions, “Are you making the most of your time?” “Are you understanding what the will of the Lord is for your life?” “Do you perceive that the earth is falling into great darkness?” “Are you pressing into the presence of the Father that you might be filled with light and stand in readiness for dark days?”
Yahshua chided the Jews for not discerning the hour they lived in. If they had known, they would have been looking for the appearing of the Messiah. In their ignorance and failure to recognize the prophetic day upon them, they missed the hour of their visitation.
He answered and said to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?”
"If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side, and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation."
People of God, the dark night at the end of this age is falling. It is at the door. Satan knows the hour, as do all of his servants, yet God’s people are blind and deaf.
Who is blind but My servant, or so deaf as My messenger whom I send? Who is so blind as he that is at peace with Me, or so blind as the servant of Yahweh? You have seen many things, but you do not observe them; Your ears are open, but none hears.
The Scriptures reveal that the demons know the timing of God. They understand when things must transpire. Should not the people of God, those indwelt by the Holy Spirit, perceive these things?
And behold, [the demons] cried out, saying, "What do we have to do with You, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?"
All things in this creation are moving forward according to a divine plan of the ages. The Scriptures provide insight into what must occur at this very hour. We stand 6,000 years removed from Adam, and 2,000 years from the time the Second Adam, who is Christ, walked upon this earth. Prophetically 6 days have passed since Adam, and 2 days since Christ.
II Peter 3:8-9
But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Here, in symbolic speech, is disclosed a key to understanding Yahweh’s prophetic timetable. Using this key we can unlock the truths contained in the following passages.
And [Yahshua] said, “Go, tell that fox, 'Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.'”
“Come, let us return to Yahweh. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day that we may live before Him.”
For two days (2,000 years) Christ through His body has been casting out demons and performing cures. For two days a remnant of mankind have known what it is to be torn as they experience the internal battle of the Spirit against the flesh, and violence has been waged in their members. As Paul stated,
I Corinthians 9:27
But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit].
For two days the church has had opportunity to work the works of Christ. Now the hour is at hand for the sons of God to be perfected. The third day is before us when Christ will raise up a remnant of overcoming sons and daughters that they may live before Him.
Using the key provided by Peter, we also understand that six days have passed since Adam was created. Christ appeared 4,000 years after Adam. It was prophetically the end of day four on Yahweh’s prophetic timetable. The demons understood that the time prophesied for them to be bound and cast into the lake of fire was at the end of 6,000 years. This is why they asked the Messiah if He had come to torment them “before the time.”
The seven days of creation serve as a parable of God’s work to bring man to perfection. The seventh day is a day when no work is done. It is the Sabbath. It is an hour for perfected sons of God to rule and reign with Christ. The seventh day represents that thousand years when the earth will know peace under the rule of Yahshua. For 6,000 years the earth has experienced strife as the forces of light and darkness collided. Now, at the end of 6,000 years the night will fall. It will be a time in which no work can be done. Yet it will give way to a glorious day.
Satan and his servants know the Scriptures far better than the majority of the people of God. They have had millennia to study them. Satan is testifying through many ways that his hour, the hour of darkness is at hand.
And Yahshua said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs as against a robber? While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours."
As the evil of Satan reached its zenith while the Son of God hung on a cross, Yahweh symbolically testified that an evil work of Satan was being carried out against a righteous man.
Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened...
Now, another hour of great darkness is at hand. Let the saints of God have hope, for Christ did not remain in the grave. He was resurrected at the break of day and the dawning of the light after three days. So too will the dark night that is rising be limited to a finite duration, while the brightness to follow will be without end.
And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. And the nations shall walk by its light, and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory into it. And in the daytime (for there shall be no night there) its gates shall never be closed...
Let us take heed to what time it is. Satan has been boasting that his hour of great wrath is nigh at hand. One of the leading book series, and top grossing movie series, of this present hour has been the Twilight series. The final movie in this series is in the theaters at this very moment. Note the darkness of the image below. There are two characters pictured standing outside in the woods as darkness falls.
The word twilight is defined as: The soft, diffused light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon, either from daybreak to sunrise or, more commonly, from sunset to nightfall.
According to Yahweh’s timetable we are approaching the time of nightfall. There is a Satanic purpose in putting the word Twilight before the eyes of mankind at this hour. He is boasting about his hour, and the power of darkness, that are approaching. As I have mentioned in recent posts, this same message that the dark night is approaching is being declared in multiple movies at this time.
Read this as “The Dark NIGHT Rises.”
Into Darkness to be Released on May 17, 2013
The name of the above movie, which was just released, is an admixture of military time terminology and a reference to darkness. Throughout this year, Satan has been announcing that an hour of great darkness is at hand, an hour when the hordes of hell will usher forth.
Note that this movie which was released at the beginning of 2012 is not only titled Underworld Awakening, but has the catch phrase “Vengeance Returns.” Both of these messages were very pronounced at the 2012 London Olympics, which will be mentioned further in a moment.
Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance
In February of this year the movie Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance was released, continuing the theme of diabolical revenge.
The Olympics are always a showcase of Luciferian design. They are completely controlled by servants of Satan, and they declare that message Satan desires to broadcast to the entire human race. The London Olympics had some very dark themes, among them a message of Satanic vengeance against God and man. One of the official songs of the XXX Olympiad was Survival by the British group Muse. This song was played every time athletes entered the Olympic Stadium. It contains the following words. As you read them, view them as a declaration of Satan to mankind.
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
I’m gonna win
These words are not befitting human athletes that are held to a strict code of conduct and sportsmanship. Why then were these specific words chosen? The answer is supplied as one understands that Satan is using the Olympics as a forum to speak to mankind. The Bible testifies the following about the hour which is at hand.
"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, who accuses them before our God day and night. And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death. 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." And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
Satan’s hour of wrath upon mankind is at hand. It will be a time of great darkness. This also was a theme of the Olympics. Another of the official Olympic songs was Good Morning to the Night by Elton John.
This song was a remix performed by an Australian duo known as Pnau. (The name of this group is derived from the sound of a gunshot.) The Olympics served as a world forum to call forth the powers of darkness. This was the purpose of the focus on bells, and bell ringing. I will not restate all the information relating to bells in the Olympic games. You can read about them at the following link to the post titled Ringing in Satan’s Kingdom.
There was also The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe, located in central London, that was completed just in time for the opening of the Olympics. This building served as a beacon to gather the forces of evil to one central location. This was discussed in the following posts:
The hordes of hell being summoned forth was illustrated in the Opening Ceremony as people issued forth from under the ground of an image of Glastonbury Tor. As the tree above the Tor rose into the air, an underground portal was opened and smoke arose as people filed forth.
There was nothing subtle about this, for a moment later the group named Underworld began playing the song Pandemonium. (In John Milton’s Paradise Lost, Pandemonium is the capital city of hell where demons dwell.) This entire segment of the Opening Ceremony was titled “Dark Satanic Mills.” Something quite unusual was done as the smell of sulphur was pumped into the stadium to accompany the people coming forth from the underworld. The smell of sulphur has long been associated with the presence of demons and various unclean spirits.
Had there been any doubt left about what was being signified, the Opening Ceremony removed it when a forty foot tall apparition of great evil rose to tower over all those on the stadium floor. His focus was especially upon the children who were lying on hospital beds at his feet.
A reader named Chris posted a comment to the previous blog on the events that occurred at Sandy Hook, informing me of the following:
Hello Joseph, thanks for your blog. Is it a coincidence that Emile Sande sang at the Olympic ceremony? Wikipedia reveals that her name is pronounced San(dee) not sanday as we know it.
No, it is not a coincidence, anymore than it was a coincidence that Captain Hook appeared at the same ceremony. Satan included both a Sande and a Hook in this show to broadcast what was coming as his evil hordes arise to do his bidding.
Even as the two official Olympic songs already mentioned were chosen to declare a message from Satan, so too the song chosen for Sande to sing at the Olympics served as a declaration of devilish intent. There was no other reason that the particular song she sang would have been chosen for this venue. It seems completely out of place until one examines the lyrics to see how well they match the message coming forth of great darkness and trouble coming to mankind. Following are the words from the hymn Abide With Me, sung by Emeli Sande.
Emeli Sande Singing Abide With Me
Abide With Me
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me...
I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.
I encourage you to read these words understanding that the Lord being mentioned is NOT Christ Yahshua, it is Satan. Remember, this is London whose inner city is marked by boundary dragons, and whose coat of arms is a shield flanked by dragons. Sande sang this song as she stood in front of the giant bell inscribed with the words of Caliban from The Tempest. Caliban was the spawn of Satan and a witch.
The Latin phrase Domine Dirige Nos is translated “Lord Direct Us.” It is not Christ who is represented by an image of a dragon. It is Satan.
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan...
This hymn sung by Sande states “Fast falls the eventide.” Is this not an indication that the “Twilight” is upon mankind? It then states, “The darkness deepens... Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day.” In hindsight, with full knowledge of the recent loss of the lives of twenty little children at Sandy Hook, the full evil of what was in view at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies is revealed. A singer whose name is pronounced Sandy sings about dying during a ceremony in which dozens of little children are portrayed as being terrorized by demonic creatures, and threatened by the child hating pirate named Hook.
It was also mentioned in a comment to the blog that the heavy metal rock group Metallica has a song titled Enter Sandman. In this song is a reference to the Peter Pan story, a story whose author J.M. Barrie confessed to be about children who died young.
Metallica - Enter Sandman
Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone
I tuck you in
Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman he comes
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white
Dreams of war
Dreams of lies
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite, yeah
Sleep with one eye open
Grippin' your pillow tight
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land...
Grain of sand
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
Never never-land is a reference to the Never Land of Peter Pan where the Lost Boys and Captain Hook dwelt. This is the same Captain Hook who in the theatrical version of Peter Pan, Act V Scene I, states, “A holocaust of children, there is something grand in the idea!”
J.M. Barrie revealed that the Lost Boys are actually dead boys. Therefore, Never Land is the place that dead children go. In the Metallica song the lyrics speak of the Sandman coming for a child to take them off to Never Never-Land.
This Satanic ceremony held in London before the eyes of the entire world was used to summon forth forces of darkness to bring forth a holocaust of children. As it was mentioned in a previous post, the name Sandy is a diminutive of Alexander. A reader informed me that in the Aurora shootings at the opening night for The Dark Knight Rises, three of the twelve people killed had the name Alexander.
Such an occurrence is a statistical anomaly, and points once again to powers of darkness orchestrating these events.
It is alarming that the people of God are so blind to what is occurring in the spiritual realm that hundreds of churches, and thousands of professing Christians throughout the United Kingdom, rang bells to usher in the beginning of these Olympic games. To understand the great evil of this, I urge you to read the post titled Ringing in Satan’s Kingdom.
The number one action movie in Hong Kong this year 2012, the Chinese year of the Water Dragon, is named Nightfall.
The adversary of God’s people knows what time it is. Do you? Are you making the most of the days knowing that they are evil? Are you prepared for the dark night that is rising? Do you see the twilight all around you? Do you perceive that light is fading, and darkness increasing? Do you see the anticipation of the servants of Satan who are saying “Good Morning to the Night”?
Satan has been declaring the hour even through the evil board games that are wildly popular among the youth in this dark hour. The following image is from a game released this year.
If you are not pressing into the presence of God, separating yourself from evil, laying aside a pursuit of the world and the things in it, then you will not stand in the evil day.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm
May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.
