The Conservative Church World — Headed For Its Greatest Tragedy
[If you are viewing this page, particularly on an iPhone…refresh the page to make the distracting, unpleasant advertisements disappear!]
We get to the “dramatic” part of this article (regarding “undercover agents” in the church world) just a bit further down, but first a few opening comments about the all-important Olivet Discourse, which is where we are alerted to these satanic agents in the first place:
God’s people need to understand “Bible prophecy”.
It matters not to me how “off limits” this topic is supposed to be…nor how politically incorrect and “indelicate” it supposedly is to bring this subject up in polite Evangelical company. Nor do I agree in the slightest with the notion that only the elite and top professional theologians of the world are qualified to dissect and interpret the Bible’s prophecy passages.
And I find it very strange, even amazing and deeply disappointing how many “big wigs” there are these days (with Rick Warren being a chief example) who are actively, aggressively trying to shoo away God’s people from delving into the subject.
Prophecy was of major and central concern to the Lord Jesus who delivered to us the Olivet Discourse two days before He went to the cross. A major discussion of prophecy and of end time events. It was virtually a deathbed confessional.
When you are on your deathbed…when death is imminent…what are the things you will convey to your loved ones? Answer: The most critical and vital matters.
Therefore the things which Jesus conveyed in the Olivet Discourse were obviously of absolute importance in His mind. And yet in today’s Evangelical world…(and you may be surprised to know this but…) the Olivet Discourse is being systematically and premeditatedly…obscured.
It is systematically obscured because people (pastors and teachers) are afraid of it. The Olivet Discourse seemingly makes absolutely no sense when placed under the shadow of “PreTribulation rapture” doctrine…a doctrine which is still to this day the “politically correct” view on Bible prophecy in the Evangelical world.
WHAT WERE PETER’S VIEWS ON PROPHECY AS HE WENT OUT FROM HIS HEARING OF THE LORD’S OLIVET DISCOURSE?
ANSWER: FOR ONE THING, HE HAD BEEN GIVEN A DIRECT CONTRADICTION TO “PRE-TRIBULATIONISM”
In this discourse, Jesus plainly indicates to Peter, James, John and Andrew that they should expect to go through a time of “great troubles’ before the return of the King.
(That is to say, they or successive generations of Jesus-followers should expect this…since Jesus also indicated He did not know the actual timing of His return…“but only the Father in heaven knows”. In other words, this return might occur thousands of years into the future from the time of His speaking.)
Therefore the beliefs and understandings which those four disciples held as they went out from their hearing of the Olivet Discourse…were obviously in direct contradiction to the teachings of the so-called “PreTribulation rapture” doctrine:
Jesus stated directly and clearly to these four disciples that they were to be on the lookout for the occurrence of the “Abomination of Desolation” event…something which happens three and a half years PAST the beginning of the 70th Week of Daniel.
Here is an interesting question to consider: How can the top “PreTrib” proponents of the world…such as Tim LaHaye, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Hal Lindsey, etc….be in direct conflict and in direct disagreement with the views held by Peter, James and John as they went out from their hearing of the Olivet Discourse?
There is not an Evangelical on the face of the earth who could come within a thousand miles of successfully contradicting the beliefs of those disciples…beliefs which had been handed to them by the Lord Jesus Himself. He had just got through telling them to look out for an event called the “Abomination of Desolation” and a time of “great troubles” for believers which will follow this event.
That event, by universal agreement among conservative Bible students, occurs well into the 7-year period referred to as the 70th Week of Daniel…years past any alleged “PreTrib rapture”. In fact, at the middle point of those seven years.
So imagine with me for just a moment…if some of today’s celebrity proponents of PreTrib were able to ‘time travel’…and were thus standing outside the meeting place of the Olivet Discourse, waiting for Peter, James and John…then pulling them aside and asking them:
“Say, did Jesus tell you to be on the look-out for the Abomination of Desolation event? I’m sorry but that’s a mistake. You are going to be raptured long before that. Just wanted to give you guys a heads-up!”
It is plainly obvious therefore, any debate that might occur between Peter (et al) and, say, C.I. Scofield, John MacArthur or David Jeremiah…is over before it has even begun. End of the line for “PreTrib”. Game over.
THE ARGUMENTS OF THE “PARTIAL PRETERISTS”
It is somewhat difficult to deal with so-called “partial preterism” because it is such a splintered camp. Folks of this persuasion are scattering to the four winds in their attempts to handle all the gaps and contradictions of this idea. And what is their ‘idea’? It is that most of the prophecies of the Olivet Discourse have already taken place in history past. The problem, to put it frankly, is that it is profoundly lacking in simple common sense:
To claim for example (as ‘partial preterism’ does) that the Abomination of Desolation event has already occurred and that the “Antichrist” has already come and gone (depending on which faction of the preterists we are dealing with)…defies a simple, straightforward and plain understanding of the Olivet Discourse passages:
Again, very simply…the four disciples (Peter, James, John and Andrew) asked Jesus to tell them about 1) the sign of His coming at the end of time and 2) the sign of the end of the age (i.e. the very end of the world and thus the beginning of God’s Kingdom come to earth).
Inexplicably, partial preterists try to argue that Jesus then proceeded to throw them a huge and deceptive curveball…in which He described events that would occur less than forty years later, in 70 A.D.. They are asking us to believe Jesus was not describing events which happen at the end of the age and at the very end of time when Jesus returns…but that He was describing events that would become a part of ancient history, fully 2000 years into antiquity.
Partial-preterists argue Jesus did NOT answer the disciples’ questions about the end of the age of man and did NOT answer their question about Jesus’ return at the end of human history…but instead relegated the Scriptures to a massive ball of confusion…in that He described events that had absolutely nothing to do with the questions they had asked. Partial preterism is literally nonsensical, pardon my bluntness.
Not to mention, by their claim that the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. was the fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecies given to the disciples when He was answering their questions regarding the very end of history…
…it therefore creates a massive textual contradiction, as Jesus was careful to point out explicitly, there will be a deliberate objective of afflicting and killing specifically Jesus-followers:
Matthew 24:9: “…they will persecute you and kill…because of My name…”.
No such thing ever happened in 70 A.D.. The evidence from history is as plain as day — the temple was destroyed and roughly a million Jews were slaughtered…because of Jewish religious and political resistance against the Roman empire. Christians (the handful that may have been left in Jerusalem at that time) had NOTHING to do with this scenario. It absolutely was not a persecution of Christians in any way, shape, or form.
That’s not even to mention, this tragedy in 70 A.D. as terrible as it was, with a million slaughtered Jewish people…would not even come close to other calamities in history. Nazi Germany would make the events of 70 A.D. look like a walk in the park, by comparison. Six million Jews murdered.
“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will again.” – Matthew 24:21.
As tragic as 70 A.D. was…unfortunately it doesn’t even come close to the worst calamity in history. Nazi Germany beats it hands down. And the upcoming Antichrist tribulation will beat them all…by a country mile.
The events of 70 A.D. absolutely were NOT the worst events in Christian history nor even Jewish history nor world history…and to insist on such a claim is a violent distortion of the Scriptures.
AN ATTEMPTED KILLING OFF OF BIBLE PROPHECY: RICK WARREN AND THE DOMINIONISM MOVEMENT
Another main reason the Olivet Discourse is obscured and systematically avoided…is because of the aforementioned ‘world champion’ Dominionist Rick Warren and an army of other prominent Dominionists…who aggressively dismiss and reject any and all teaching and/or treatment of the Bible’s prophecy passages.
In fact, at this point the influences of Dominionism are probably the most powerful obstacle for Bible students understanding the ‘end times’. It’s a kind of deadly one-two punch:
First, PreTrib doctrines make Bible prophecy indecipherable. Secondly, Rick Warren and the Dominionists come along with the coup de grâce: “Ah, Bible prophecy isn’t worth the effort anyway. The whole thing is too confusing. Best left alone.”
A BRIEF LOOK AT THE OLIVET DISCOURSE:
In the Olivet Discourse passages (found in the synoptic gospels–Matthew, Mark and Luke) the disciples come to Jesus asking Him what they should expect to encounter in the ‘end times’.
Jesus looks them straight in the eye, and in the simplest and plainest terms explains…
…that those of His followers who live in those days must expect to find themselves up against the Antichrist himself .
In other words, they are to expect to be on earth at the time of the so-called “Abomination of Desolation”.
Therefore, what did Peter, James, John and Andrew believe and understand about the end times? Well…they believed whatever it was that Jesus told them!
And what had Jesus told them?
Answer: Again, they (or whoever among Jesus’ “disciples” are alive at that time) were to expect to be on earth at the same time as the events of the Abomination of Desolation and therefore, the emergence of the Antichrist.
THE OLIVET DISCOURSE HAS BEEN DIRECTED TO “THE DISCIPLES” SPECIFICALLY. NOT “CERTAIN MEN OF ISRAEL” OR SOME OTHER CONCOCTED DESIGNATION!
To be clear…“disciples” is the exact and precise designation of those to whom Jesus was speaking in the Olivet Discourse. The words of the Olivet Discourse apply to Jesus’ “disciples”.
The reason I emphasize this is…because this is specifically what PreTrib proponents attempt to de-emphasize!
They attempt to view the Olivet Discourse in a strangely fuzzy and out of focus manner: “oh, it was just some Jews or something” whom Jesus was addressing.
In other words, they try to argue Jesus’ words only applied to a nondescript group of “Jewish” people.
But this fuzzy interpretation is not true. Jesus was addressing specifically followers of Jesus…i.e. “disciples”.
The reason PreTribbers want to de-emphasize this statement from the Olivet Discourse…is rather obvious: Jesus is telling these four Jesus-followers (Peter, James, John and Andrew) to expect to go through the Great Tribulation…a monumental contradiction to their PreTrib doctrine which tries to argue all Jesus-followers are “raptured” long before any “tribulation” period.
And what can we safely assume happened in the aftermath of the Olivet Discourse? It is safe to say…
…PETER, JAMES AND JOHN WOULD HAVE OBVIOUSLY BEGUN TO PASS ALONG JESUS’ TEACHING!
WERE THEY THEREFORE “FALSE TEACHERS” FOR CONTRADICTING “PRE-TRIB” DOCTRINE IN THIS WAY?!
Think about this: These followers of Jesus then went out from their hearing of the Olivet Discourse and obviously began to report and to teach other believers “hey people, we need to look for the specific event of the Abomination of Desolation as a signaling of the Lord’s impending return!”.
Jesus told these four disciples to expect a time of “tribulation” to follow this Abomination event…a period of great troubles for Jesus-followers which is then ended by the return of the King and a gathering of believers into His presence.
And so when Peter, James, John and Andrew began to convey this information to the other believers, either Jesus had taught them incorrectly and they were now passing along false teaching…OR…they were correct in telling the other believers what Jesus had conveyed to them.
The Olivet Discourse is specifically directed to…“disciples” (i.e. followers) of Jesus. And if it is directed to the “disciples…it therefore applies to the “disciples”. How can that be disputed?
THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION – A HORRIFIC AND MURDEROUS EVENT
The “Abomination of Desolation” which Jesus described to Peter, James and John as the specific event His followers must expect to encounter…
…will be this climactic, murderous advent of the Antichrist whereby he announces himself to the world…with screeching blasphemy, the destruction of Jerusalem, and a holocaust of the Jewish people living in the area.
And Jesus indicates plainly that His followers (whichever of them are alive during that time) are to expect to be on earth during those days.
This satanic world leader will implement a global totalitarianism at that time, and after being frustrated in his efforts to eliminate the final “remnant” of the Jews (by divine intervention) he then goes off “to make war with the rest of [God’s] children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” (Rev. 12:17)
HAVE YOU RESIGNED FROM BEING A BIBLE STUDENT?
Tragically, the subject of “Bible prophecy” has long since developed a terrible reputation among Christian people. And so, many (or most) people will throw up their arms at this point and exclaim “oh well, one group argues this, another group argues that — who knows what to believe??”.
Wait just a minute. You can’t throw in the towel like that. You don’t just give up and walk away. Not on one of the central and critical questions of all the Bible. Not when fully one fourth of the Scripture consists of Bible prophecy.
Are you a Bible student or not? Do you just sit in church, Sunday after Sunday, listening to shallow ‘pop psychology’ sermons…and leave it at that??
What are we to think? That God sits up in the heavens, face in His hands, lamenting: Why oh why do I have such a huge emphasis on prophecy in the Word? What was I thinking??
Obviously, that is not happening. And the plain fact of the matter is…God has made Bible prophecy so utterly simple, a child can understand the bulk of it, certainly as Jesus presented it in the Olivet Discourse.
And I know from experience: At one point, as an experiment I asked a 12 year-old child to read through the main portion of Matthew 24. It took her about fifteen minutes. And in fifteen minutes, this 12 year-old child had routinely achieved a good basic grasp of all the pertinent facts concerning the end times. Go figure!
She didn’t have to read all twenty-four of Tim LaHayes’ “Left Behind” novels…didn’t have to attend a prestigious seminary for several years…didn’t have to watch 500 hours of David Jeremiah’s televised sermons. Just fifteen minutes at the feet of Jesus…in the Olivet Discourse. Twelve years old. Fifteen minutes.
THE WORD OF GOD HAS BEEN LARGELY DESIGNED FOR THE COMMON MAN
The argument I am trying to make here is that the plain statements from the Lord Himself in the Olivet Discourse passages (Matthew 24,25 / Mark 13 / Luke 22) should conclusively indicate the error of the widely accepted and (unfortunately) hugely predominant “PreTribulation Rapture” doctrine. (Again, think Tim LaHaye with his Left Behind novels and his blockbuster Hollywood movies, as an example.) I would dare to say PreTrib proponents have not come within a thousand miles of successfully negating Jesus’ advisory to the “disciples”.
And so today with the storm clouds of the “end times” increasingly gathering on the horizons…there stands ABSOLUTELY NOTHING between the believers and a ferocious, snarling, murderous “Antichrist”…
…except thin air.
There is no barrier. There is no buffer. We are currently headed for this encounter at a thousand miles per hour. There is no miraculous “rapture” which will whisk us off to heaven on “flowery beds of ease”.
Not until…a time of “great tribulation” has passed and the spectacular cosmic signs appear in the sky (a blood-red moon and a sun which has gone as dark as “sackcloth” – Matthew 24:29) do we see the angels gathering the elect into the arms of Jesus.
ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS IN MATTHEW 25 REGARDING SPIRITUAL PREPARATION FOR THE “ABOMINATION”?
What is the level of spiritual preparation on the part of the vast majority of believers?? This is a preparation regarding which Jesus carefully instructs in Matthew 25:1-13 whereby only five of the ten virgins are those who carefully fill their lamps with oil in anticipation of having to step out into the darkness to “meet the Master”.
Answer: The level of spiritual preparation on the part of the vast, vast majority of believers (particularly in cozy, comfy America)…is zero.
Please remember: Jesus’ instructions in Matthew 25 require a specific preparation for a specific time of trial, i.e. the “darkness”…which is the time of “great tribulation” which follows the “Abomination of Desolation”…and which precedes the return of the King.
(By the way, Jesus states further critical instructions in Matthew 25:14-29.)
And so now, with the apparent emergence of these satanic undercover agents (“false prophets”) within the Christian community (which we will talk about shortly)…believers who have made the dismissive argument with me that…they need no specific understanding of the Olivet Discourse, and have no need to study Bible prophecy, and that they maintain merely a “general” preparedness (or so they claim)…are on very, very shaky ground, if I am understanding Matthew 25 correctly. Read over the the text for yourself!
ARE YOU PREPARING YOURSELF, YOUR LOVED ONES, AND/OR YOUR FLOCK?
The question is…have you been preparing yourself spiritually for the time of “great” trial and tribulation? And if perchance you’re getting up in years and possibly may not survive to that time…are you at least preparing your children? Or will you leave them to be blindsided and deceived by this evil Antichrist cabal?
If you are a Christian leader, are you going to prepare your flock? Are you going to ease them into the teachings of Jesus in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, 25 / Mark 13 / Luke 21)? Give them a chance to fill their lamps with oil in order to be able to go out into the darkness to meet the Master?
THE ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL, KEY IMPORTANCE OF THE OLIVET DISCOURSE:
Therefore, the purpose for this little (three-part) blog is to try to create heightened awareness of a tragic error being committed by those in the conservative “Evangelical” church world of today…in brushing aside the Olivet Discourse.
My hope and prayer is that the reader will begin to understand just how dangerous is this neglect and brushing aside…when they see here the evidence of a very startling emergence of diabolically disguised satanic undercover agents (“false prophets”) in the modern-day conservative church world.
Yes, you read that right. Read it again if needed, then buckle up for a wild ride.
THE EMERGENCE OF LITERAL ‘UNDERCOVER AGENTS’:
This phenomenon has developed exactly as Jesus foretold in the Olivet Discourse…along with many other hugely critical advisories which He puts forth regarding the ‘end times’ in these passages, one of two final major teaching sessions which He delivers to the disciples before going to the cross two days later.
So I will first offer a brief sampling of the evidence which seems to indicate undercover agents in the church.
Then secondly, I will present a bit more argumentation in support of the Olivet Discourse and some explanation as to why there has been this obscuring of an important Bible passage in the first place! You may be wondering that right now!
And in the final portion of Part One, I will revert back to the topic of these undercover agents and will go into more depth regarding some of the evidence and indications…regarding an infiltration of satanic agents.
A BRIEF BIO:
Just to give you a brief bit of biographical information, I am a married man, father of two, and a business owner, also a Bible college graduate. I grew up in a Christian home. My father was a Christian leader (he has since passed on) and who also took on a pastorate in California. For the time being, I am writing under a pseudonym, given the extremely controversial and (I would dare say) somewhat dangerous nature of the material here.
A ‘DIVINELY ORDAINED’ SUBJECT MATTER
Back to our subject: Keep in mind, it is the Lord Jesus who brings up the topic of “false prophets” (i.e. satanic undercover agents of the Antichrist) in the Olivet Discourse passages. And He does so because…(caution: common sense observation to follow)…He wants us to be mindful/aware/cognizant of this startling phenomenon of “false prophets” to the extent it is possible. To be on the lookout.
I have had so many people try to wave me off when I begin presenting the evidence for literal satanic undercover agents in the conservative church world!
Jesus punctuates His entire Discourse with the emphatic advisory that…we are to be on the lookout for “all these things”. Not just these false prophets but also the globe-spanning political and military struggles which He describes (“kingdom will rise up against kingdom” Mt. 24:7)…and other globe-spanning phenomena (“earthquakes, famine, pestilence, diseases…”).
I say this because there have been some who have argued it is “distasteful” to get into this unpleasant matter of ‘undercover agents’ who have infiltrated conservative church culture in America.
But again, Jesus is the One who brought up the matter and has asked us to consider these things carefully and observantly!
MICHAEL W. SMITH: FRIEND OR FOE…OR WORSE?
OK so, I will start off with indications and evidence regarding…that’s right, Michael W. Smith. I am certain many or most would be shocked to see Smith put on the table. Oh well. Look at the evidence. You make the decision.
Below we are looking at a potential example of an “undercover agent”. There are numerous other “Evangelical VIPs” who seem to have an abundance of occult indicators…with Toby Mac (a friend and neighbor of Smith) being one of the chief examples (which I get into in Part Two of this blog).
You look at the evidence. You decide. All I know is…Jesus has forewarned of extremely deceptive “false prophets” who emerge to lure erstwhile “believers” to their doom. Recall the basic scriptural principle…that the agents of darkness appear as “angels of light”:
By way of brief description for those who are not familiar, Michael W. Smith is a man who has resided in the top circles of conservative Christianity for almost four decades. To give you an idea of his prominence, he has had a close personal friendship with the Bush family (who are supposedly also “Evangelicals”). He is ‘golf buddies’ with George W., for example, hangs out at the Bush “compound” in Kennebunkport, and performed recently at the funeral of the elder George HW Bush. He has had a close relationship with Billy Graham and appeared on any number of his television programs over the years.
In other words, he is a kind of ‘super-VIP’ in the Evangelical world. Virtually the current leading figure…the ‘senior member’ (as it were) on the Christian music scene.
Smith with President George Bush
He has always presented himself as a gracious, mild-mannered and seemingly charitable individual…and with the lyrics of his songs leaving the initial impression he is a conservative Bible-believer.
I would hasten to add though…like almost all modern day “Christian” singers, his lyrics upon closer examination are extremely shallow, virtually devoid of even a mention of the Lord Jesus (with maybe two or three exceptions among his hundreds of songs), and nothing within a country mile of an actual “Gospel presentation” to be found.
With Smith’s lyrics one can find lots of Christian “church lingo” or what some would refer to as “Christian-ese”…which the church-going crowd might be able to understand and interpret in ‘biblical’ terms, but if you are unchurched and in need of the Gospel message, you wouldn’t have the foggiest idea how to find your way to heaven from his hundreds of songs.
As I said, the same goes for a huge majority of today’s “too-cool-for-school” Christian singers…where lyrics devoid of any direct mention of the Lord Jesus are all the rage.
But now we’re really headed down the proverbial rabbit hole. Hang on to your hat:
Notice below some of the very strange, anomalous aspects regarding Smith’s published materials. How in the world does one explain this?? There is much more information about this man (seen further below in this article) and much more evidence to show regarding dozens (upon dozens) of others in the conservative Evangelical world…who display camouflaged and coded indications of occult allegiances. With the word “occult” meaning “hidden” or “secret”.
Below, you see the album cover for Smith’s 1998 Christmas release. You may already be noting the weirdness of the photo. Weird, indeed. We’ll come back to this in a moment.
Bear with me for just a minute: Twelve years previous to the above album, Smith’s “The Big Picture” album was released (in 1986 – see below). One thing that occult researchers and ex-occultists have pointed to, among a number of observations yet to come: His name is presented with backwards spelling. Not to jump to any conclusion, nevertheless it should be pointed out that spelling, or talking (and a number of others things) backwards is very significant in occult circles.
However…what has been of primary interest to these whistleblowers…is that two of the letters in his ‘backwards’ name are RUNIC. They are runes. Notice carefully (see below), the ‘t’ in “Smith” and the ‘m’ in “Michael”.
That is not good. The long-dead runic alphabet, in the modern day, has absolutely no practical purpose and is related exclusively to occult practices and witchcraft. It is virtually the satanic alphabet. The very word ‘rune’ means ‘secret’.
Now, you may be saying– Come on. It’s just a coincidence. They used several different “fonts” for their design, and then accidentally used a couple of runic letters.
Wait a minute– Take another closer look at the previous album, the “Christmastime” CD cover (seen again, below) which was released fully 12 years after the aforementioned “Big Picture” album:
You will notice that Smith is again bringing this runic ‘t’ and ‘m’ into play.
He is forming a runic ‘t’ with his body…going so far as to lower his head, to round off the top of the ‘t’…AND is standing on top of this chair which forms a runic ‘m’. That is pretty shocking stuff.
There is simply no mistaking the fact that on at least two of his CD’s, his album art is displaying these runic/Luciferian symbols…and is doing so in a secret, coded fashion. That is extremely and pointedly ominous.
That’s not to mention Smith, or as some try to argue, his “art department” (we address this question a little later), uses numerous other occult symbols and signals, as you will see further down the page. And some other very serious indications from him regarding occult allegiances. Read on.
As I said before, the word “occult” means “hidden” or “secret”. We are seeing here indications of secret and hidden allegiances.
As we go along further in an examination of occultism, you will see that these occultists use symbols and signals as their very ‘language’. This is their form of communication. Their very means of announcing a secret allegiance.
MANY SUCH EXAMPLES ALL ACROSS THE HIGHER LEVELS OF EVANGELICALISM
There are at least hundreds of such indications all across the upper levels and the highest levels…of Evangelicalism, Fundamentalism, the Charismatics and the Pentecostals. Throughout Parts One and Two, I will present a half dozen or more examples.
For a fuller reading on all these issues, I have written a 500 page e-book Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing. The three part series you are now reading is designed to get folks up to speed in a 90-minute sitting!
A few more short thoughts about the Olivet Discourse before delving back into this matter of undercover occultists:
HOW CAN A BIBLE CHRISTIAN BE IN DISAGREEMENT WITH PETER, JAMES AND JOHN??
I suppose I am guilty here of ‘yanking’ the reader around, just a bit. But please just think with me for a moment longer…regarding an understanding of the Olivet Discourse…and then I promise we will get right back to the topic of undercover agents in the church world:
Contemplate this: How could any Bible Christian be at odds with Peter, James, John and Andrew and in disagreement with them…over their understanding of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse message?? It would be a total absurdity.
From Jesus’ point-blank statements, those four disciples were given the understanding they should look for events that occur PAST the time of an alleged “pre-tribulation” rapture event.
It is utterly inconceivable in the extreme…to think that these disciples believed wrongly (a position which PreTrib doctrine is disastrously forced to take) …and that they entered into the Christian era a few days later…believing false doctrine…and even worse…that they would have begun to teach this supposed “false doctrine”!
And worst of all…that Jesus Himself therefore had taught false doctrine!
He told these believers to look for…not a mythical pre-“70th Week” rapture event…but rather (and in direct contradiction to PreTrib doctrine)…a mid-“70th Week” event: The Abomination of Desolation…
…followed by a time of “great tribulation”, and only then followed by the glorious “Gathering” of the believers at some point during this second half of the 70th Week.
IMAGINING A CONVERSATION WITH THESE DISCIPLES
Imagine if you were able to ‘time-travel’ back to the days of Peter’s, James’ or John’s earthly ministry…let’s say 5 or 10 years into the Christian era…and you could ask them: “Say, do you still heed the words of Jesus from the Olivet Discourse?”.
What could we possibly imagine they would say other than…
“Well, of course we still heed His words from that day. Has someone contradicted the words of Jesus since then? And how could it be possible to contradict His teachings?!”
To suggest, as PreTrib doctrine inadvertently does, that these disciples believed and taught false doctrine and that Jesus Himself, in effect, handed false, incorrect beliefs to His followers…
…is the absolute and utter invalidation of “PreTribulation rapture” doctrine.
ANOTHER CONCERTED EFFORT TO OBSCURE THE OLIVET DISCOURSE MESSAGE:
If the damage done by PreTribulation Rapture doctrine isn’t bad enough, there are also the advocates of Dominionism who are aggressively dismissive of any and all “rapture” and Bible prophecy issues. Think Rick Warren, as a chief example.
The effects of Dominionism are such that it has huge throngs of Evangelicals strutting around with a sort of ‘in-your-face’ attitude: “We’re here – we’re Evangelicals – get used to it!”…and thumbing their noses dismissively at any and all Bible prophecy.
The really die-hard Dominionist ‘false teachers’ (like Pat Robertson, Rousas Rushdoony, Gary North and Rick Warren)…are actually envisioning an ‘end game’…where a combination of American military might (Pax Americana) and supposedly an ever increasingly global Evangelical influence …will eventually pave the way for Christ’s return, once God’s kingdom supposedly has been successfully “implemented” on earth. Are these people ever headed for a rude awakening!
AN ONCOMING LOCOMOTIVE (THE SINGLE GREATEST TRAGEDY OF THE CHRISTIAN ERA)
Thus, the church world today is ensconced in comfy, cozy blissful ignorance, hanging out at Starbucks outlets all across the land, hunched over Caffè Lattes…not realizing they are, in effect, sitting on the train tracks with the Abomination of Desolation locomotive bearing down at 1000 mph!
This is the single greatest tragedy of the Christian era (in my view) and the single greatest deception the Devil has ever gotten over on the conservative church world.
When the Abomination of Desolation event explodes across the world with snarling ferocity (resulting initially in the widespread destruction of Jerusalem and surrounding areas, along with an unprecedentedly massive holocaust of the Jewish people there) and the Devil’s “masterpiece”, the Antichrist, roars his announcement to the world…
…all those who had believed in a “PreTribulation rapture” and all those under the influence of Dominionism and who therefore chuckle and giggle at the idea of “Bible prophecy”…will be paralyzed in terror.
According to Jesus, the majority will fold. They will capitulate, they will take the “mark of the beast” and they will go on to split the gates of Hell wide open: “The love of most will grow cold, but only the one who endures to the end, he will be saved” – Matthew 24:12,13.
Apparently, there are many, many people populating the church world who will turn out not to have been genuine believers.
And if you look more closely at the passage…“the love of most believers will grow cold and only the one who endures to the end, he will be saved”…it is amazingly tragic to think there will be those who HAD a love for the Lord…but then lost that love…turned from God…and went on to their doom.
Not that anyone “loses” their salvation but again, apparently many many believers today will turn out NOT to have been genuine believers…even though at a previous point they had a “love” for the Lord.
BACK TO THE SUBJECT…OF DIABOLICAL ‘WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING’ AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS:
This is electrifying, mind boggling, mind-blowing, paradigm-shifting stuff. Many folks will have difficulty fitting this into their heads.
In fact, if there are any pastors or Christian leaders reading this…it may not really be necessary to unsettle your parishioners and followers with the sordid details we are looking at here. After all, Jesus mentions no names in the Olivet Discourse.
Therefore, I believe the Discourse has been structured so as to be a divinely ingenious way of easing your people into a proper ‘end times’ mindset…without unduly frightening or upsetting them.
But I as a layman in attempting to discuss these matters, don’t have the advantage of a ready-made audience. Thus, I am trying to gain the attention of my readers with these dramatic evidences…which, at your discretion, you may choose to share with carefully (and prayerfully) selected friends, family or fellow leaders:
So yes, from my observation and the observations of many others, there has been an emergence of diabolically disguised satanic “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (or “false prophets” as Jesus refers to them) at the very top levels of leadership in the modern-day conservative Evangelical and Pentecostal/Charismatic church world. In other words, in Bible-preaching, Bible-believing circles.
This is a phenomenon which has been developing particularly since the post-World War II years, throughout the 1950’s, 1960’s and forward to the present day. It has been specifically foretold by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse…in which He forewarns “at that time…many false prophets will arise and deceive many…” (Matthew 24:10-11).
THE ‘PRE-POSITIONING’ STRATEGY
If you think carefully about Jesus’ statement here, you will begin to realize this deceiving role requires a pre-positioning of the undercover agents. In other words, the (false) reputation of the false prophets had to have been previously established.
They will be, of necessity, among the top and most popular leaders in the Christian world…otherwise (think about it) they would have no platform…no real voice. These are folks who will have been on the scene and in their positions of leadership and influence for quite some time previous to the hour of the Antichrist’s emergence.
Hasten to add, not every top Christian leader is an undercover agent! But sadly and shockingly, many of them are such, as I believe you will see the evidence indicates. Read on.
THIS is what my blog is about! A number of us have been trying to warn fellow believers about these emerging wolves, and that we need to be preparing ourselves spiritually, according to Jesus’ instruction in Matthew 25.
There seems even to be a suggestion of preparing physically and materially, when Jesus instructs (in some Bible translations) “pray that you may have the strength to escape all these things” – Luke 21:36.
Look very carefully over the rest of the evidence regarding Michael W. Smith presented just a bit further below, which seems to give strong indication of occult/Luciferian allegiances.
You will see that I provide five or six more examples in Part Two of this blog. And then keep in mind, there are a hundred and a thousand more scenarios like this.
Thus, do grave dangers lie ahead for the church world. An “apostasy plot” is in the offing, literally at this present moment. Satanic counterfeit agents are infiltrating and are already pre-positioned. And again, all of it is described in great detail in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, 25 / Mark 13 / Luke 21).
As we go along through this series of three articles, I am going to present specific evidence and indication of these things. Literally, the names, faces, addresses, phone numbers and emails of these suspected individuals are available! Not that I would recommend becoming pen pals with false prophets. The behavior of these folks is brazen, it is out in the open, and in the light of day. They are, as it were, “hiding in plain sight”. Read on.
LUCIFERIANS IN THE PULPITS AND ON THE CONCERT STAGES?
Sadly and tragically there are very, very few present day believers who take seriously the biblical reality of actual “wolves in sheep’s clothing”.
The not-very-well-thought-through notion among conservative church-goers is…that there really is no such thing as a high level Christian leader on the scene who is, in actuality, a literal and explicit devotee of Lucifer.
Such does not really exist in the minds of most believers today…even though it IS presented as a reality in the Bible.
Granted, conservative Christians will point out the likes of Benny Hinn, Robert Tilton or Joel Osteen as heretical teachers and money-grubbers. But “wolves” are more than money-grubbers.
Jesus, in the Olivet Discourse, is describing literal satanic agents who are executing the specific strategies of the Antichrist. We need to consider the possibility some of these people are more than just money-grubbers. And…to consider the possibility there are occultists among us.
Occultism, by definition, is all about putting up a façade. The very word “occult” means “hidden” or “secret”. The false Christian leaders (referred to as “false prophets” by Jesus) are not going wear black robes and hoods and sacrifice goats onstage in a satanic ritual. It’s a little more subtle than that.
But let me just say emphatically — I am not asking anyone to conclude anything regarding Pat Robertson (seen in the photo below), Michael W. Smith, or anyone else, prematurely. I am only presenting these opening salvos of evidence and indication, and asking the reader to think along.
But yes, as yet another sampling of potential evidence, simply look at the above photo — a Time magazine cover from 1986. Use your observation powers. What is this utterly strange hand positioning? Maybe some will think, on first glance, there doesn’t seem to be much to be concerned about. Think again.
The man is obviously signaling something. But what is he signaling? Ah, but that’s just it. We don’t know what he is indicating. At least not back in 1986 before there was an Internet.
Now, with the advent of the Information Age, that has all changed. There are too many eyewitnesses. Too many ‘voices in the wilderness’. Too many whistleblowers who have been able to uncover all this weird secretiveness.
Some might try to downplay this: “Why and how is this dangerous? How can a mere ‘hand signal’ hurt me or or kill me? Come on!” Of course, a hand signal cannot hurt you or kill you. But the hand signal is indicating a secret community. A secret network, as it were. Use some common sense. Better yet, use some biblically-based common sense:
People who flash secret ‘gang signs’ in the context of the Christian community…are obviously conspiring. There is a conspiracy ongoing. In point of fact, the Bible refers to the “schemes”, i.e. the conspiracies…of the Devil (2 Corinthians 2:11). Jesus has pointed out this grand final conspiracy in the Olivet Discourse…when He foretells of the emergence of secret and concealed Antichrist agents, i.e. the “false prophets”.
Is Pat Robertson a part of this? View a broader sampling of evidence and indications of potential occult allegiances among Christian (or “Christian”, as the case may be) leaders, in order to begin developing your own understanding..
Throughout my three-part series I will try to present information about these occult signals and symbols…information which has been made available by a number of ex-occultist whistleblowers and other occult researchers.
If you continue reading, you are going to see that the evidence for occult allegiances has been “hiding in plain sight” all around you…and all around the world. The Devil has employed astonishing ingenuity.
Readers of my previous e-book will be familiar with some of this information, where I have started off first with this Pat Robertson Time magazine photo…followed by an in-depth look at Michael W. Smith. And immediately followed by a number of other examples throughout this three-part series.
Again, I do NOT ask the reader to jump to conclusions. We may develop theories, working theories, working conclusions…these are all things one may (or may not) reach a bit further down the trail of evidence. I would argue though…there is evidence. As just one small step on a longer journey…I ask you to observe the above photo.
It is at this point, I have begun to notice two different groups forming: There are the folks who have (in my view) a normal and healthy curiosity about this anomalous occult behavior from a (supposed) Christian luminary…and then there are those who begin to retreat, unfortunately, into an aggressive close-mindedness.
I can certainly attest personally to the fact that it is a very challenging thing to begin assimilating some of this evidence. Most people do not want to leave their familiar comfort zones. They succumb to the temptation to retreat, deny, and run for the nearest Starbucks.
Nevertheless, I believe the more thoughtful and discerning reaction to seeing potential evidence of a well-known Christian leader engaging in a secret and obviously coded hand-signaling (which indeed it is, as we shall see shortly)…should be:
“Whoa. Wow. What is that? What in the world is Robertson doing with his hand? I’d like to know more. I want some answers. Please tell me more about this.”
And there are answers. But I want there to be an orderly process of evidence presentation so that the reader can successfully be brought up to speed:
First of all, it should be obvious to those with a biblically inspired common sense…that ANY kind of secret and coded signaling or symbolism going on behind the backs of fellow Christians is 100% inappropriate, to say the very least. There should be an immediate and deep concern. Just what IS Robertson signaling? And to WHOM is he signaling?
If the general population of the Christian community does not have the answer to the above questions…I would argue that in itself is indication of something immoral going on with Pat Robertson. You are not allowed to have secret messages being shot over the heads of the Christian community. Period.
Therefore, this certainly isn’t a message sent to his Christian followers. So who is this message being sent to? I would make the argument that it is obvious this is being directed to a secret cabal. A secret group.
It’s common sense. He is sending a signal which he believes will be understood only by some. A secret group. In other words, an “occult” group. Unknown to the Christian community.
In 1986 when this photo was published, and before the Internet and the so-called “Age of Information”…absolutely no one outside of the occult world would have any idea what this hand positioning indicated. Robertson’s signaling therefore should be viewed by any thoughtful Bible student…as very ominous, very troubling.
Yes, you can certainly entertain the possibility that he was asked to pose in this manner without knowing what he was doing. But that seems a bit of a strained argument: He is experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot for a momentous Time magazine cover…and yet doesn’t have the presence of mind to question the weird ‘clawed hand’ posing? And it only creates a new set of problems: Who was behind prompting Robertson to make this occult pose? And why didn’t the Time magazine editors step in to prevent the bizarre posing?
In any case, the more you (hopefully) begin to see there is this wide network of hidden agents within the conservative church world, the less likely it will seem that Robertson only accidentally posed with this occult hand signaling…and/or would simply agree to position his hand in this strange ‘clawed’ fashion.
And of course, there are other aspects to Robertson that give cause for concern for conservative Christians. Eventually one should wonder if there isn’t something more serious going on than merely his many heretical teachings and practices, and his hundreds of millions in inappropriate and ill-gotten gain as an alleged minister of the Gospel. (His wealth is estimated to be at or near the one billion mark.)
Consider the possibility that he may be more than just a ‘bad teacher’ or money-grubbing TV evangelist. Might we consider that we may be dealing with a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”? A fair question, given this blatant Time magazine photo. But read on here, to see a wider context of evidence presented…and see if it doesn’t begin to match up with Jesus’ descriptions of the ‘end times’ church world.
One of the reactions I often get from these aforementioned “comfort zone” dwellers is — “Oh come on. That one photo proves nothing of your thesis about a systematic infiltration of the church world and of a secret network of undercover occult agents”.
But no one is asking you to jump to a conclusion based on one piece of evidence! What happens is…an element of fear begins to enter in when I am attempting to have these discussions with folks.
Ironically, I have never considered myself particularly brave because of my willingness to scrutinize the church world for these satanic infiltrators (as Jesus in fact instructs us to do in Matthew 24). In fact, it is the opposite: It is because of a spiritual ‘survival instinct’. Jesus warns us of emerging dangers and that we are to look out for these things. To this day, it boggles my mind how folks go into denial and escapism when confronted with the evidence of these dangers.
It is akin to sleeping on the train tracks where there is an oncoming train, and thinking that if you burrow more deeply into your sleeping bag, you’ll be safe.
HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT
Please notice in the above Time magazine cover how this occult symbol-flashing activity is “hiding in plain sight”. I have had some folks try to argue– “Well, how secretive can this be, if it’s on the cover of a magazine?”.
But…if one does not understand or know how to recognize and interpret these symbols and signs, it matters not what is being “displayed” on magazine covers, CD covers, book covers, or on the web sites of some of these people. To this day, even with the available information on the Internet, literally 99.9% of the Christian community has no awareness or understanding of what Robertson did in this 1986 photo.
At this point, some readers may be thinking to themselves:
“I’ve watched the man for years–I’ve seen no signs of Satanism lurking around the fringes. He’s just kind of a sappy Charismatic TV preacher with a few weird eccentricities and a little too much money.” I would respond first of all by saying that now you have seen indication of occultism with this individual. He’s displaying this occult gesture known in the occult world as the Lion’s Paw (also known as the Sign of the Fellow Craft).
And yes, I realize it is quite startling, as you go along through the evidence, to observe the Jekyll-and-Hyde duplicity of these various “Christian” wolves…who will preach from the Bible on Sunday and participate in occult rituals the next day. The Devil’s ingenuity and ability to fool and deceive has been greatly underestimated by many of us.
By the way, I am FAR from being alone in my observations about these undercover occultists with their secret signals and symbols. Here is another example – Christian Rock Exposed. And yet another- Vigilant Citizen. There is a whole host of occult researchers and ex-occultists who have noted Robertson’s occult gesturing…including two of the top Christian ex-Masons in the country.
A CLOSER LOOK AT MICHAEL W. SMITH
Keep in mind, I am going to try and explain more about the connection of all these things to the pages of Scripture. But for now, I want to take you down a trail of evidence.
[One more note: Those of you who have already read through all my Smith information in Chapter One of my previous e-book might consider only browsing through these opening portions!]
I am old enough to have observed Smith’s emergence as a popular Christian musician back in the 80’s. I was never particularly fond of his music and now I think I may know why. Perhaps subconsciously I sensed something was ‘off’.
I have previously presented this album cover from 1998:
And then the album cover from 1986…with the runic letters “t” and “m”:
And so then, 12 years later, these same runes reappear when they are presented by means of Smith’s conspicuous body positioning and the undercarriage of the chair:
I fully realize that, at this point, many questions come rushing to mind: How could anyone be so duplicitous? How could someone appear to be so charitable and gracious and yet be a hate-filled, ravenous wolf behind the scenes? Why would someone spend a lifetime living a bizarre double-life? How would one of these double agents originate? Is there a “world headquarters” for false prophets, or something?
If you’re a bookworm, you could plow through my aforementioned 500-page e-book in which I attempt to delve more deeply into all these matters. Some questions will be answered in this shorter blog. The question of how these false prophet/occultists actually originate…is a pretty dark story, from what I have gathered. I get into deeper explanations around Chapter Eight of the e-book. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea and not necessarily ‘required reading’, in my opinion.
And yes, the globalist Antichrist movement is highly organized and meticulously planned. More of these questions are covered in the lengthier blog. You will have to decide how deeply you want to delve into these subjects. I have a somewhat narrower focus for this 3-part blog: The Olivet Discourse is of life-and-death importance..
AN OCCULT EXPERT’S CONFIRMATION
Subsequent to stumbling across this information about Michael W. Smith, I had the opportunity to correspond with an expert on the occult –in particular, Germanic and Norse occultism. She had personal connection to the occult world and had also obtained a degree in anthropology, apparently with an emphasis on occult issues.
After looking over Smith’s pose on the cover of his “Christmastime” CD, not only did she immediately and routinely recognize Smith’s conspicuous posing as a rune presentation, she was also able to provide interpretations for these particular runes.
I was stunned. I thought I would go an entire lifetime without knowing what this secret runic message was. I later discovered their meaning was readily available on the trusty old Internet…if I had only known where to look for it. Here were her comments and an analysis of the Smith “Christmastime” CD cover–things which I have since confirmed from other sources:
“In this pose, Smith is making the sign of Tyr – the Sky God, who, according to Norse mythology, sacrificed his hand to the Fenris Wolf in order to save others. It is also a warrior symbol of great courage, and of overcoming death. He is standing on an M, which is the rune for Mankind. I don’t see that as sinister but make of it what you will.”
I wrote back the following comments:
“Now, when you say his choice of runes signifies the ‘sky god’ and that this god is being placed above ‘mankind’…that is very significant to me as a student of the Bible. The Scriptures refer to Lucifer as “the prince and power of the air”.
Furthermore, the Bible indicates that for the time being, all of the world is virtually under Lucifer’s dominion (although not complete control). It seems to me, a Luciferian would be very interested in depicting Lucifer as reigning supreme over mankind. I can tell you that for Smith to seemingly indicate such a message…is spectacularly and utterly in opposition to his purported ‘conservative Christian’ philosophy.
And once again, given what I have observed in his kindly, charitable outward demeanor…it’s indicative to me of an ominous ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ thing, going on. Thanks for your insights.”
In the occult world, not only is Tyr known as a “sky god”…the Egyptian god “Ra” is also known as a ‘sky god’. From the Biblical perspective we know that Satan has come by a number of aliases. It seems a pretty fair surmising that in referencing the “sky god”, Ra and Tyr are therefore likely aliases for the Devil himself.
Of course, if Tyr were only a henchman to Satan…a mere ‘also-ran’ in the pantheon of pagan/demonic gods…would that make it any better? I should think not. In any case, “Tyr” was viewed as the chief god in ancient Germanic history….so when combined with this “sky god” designation, it would seem to suggest an alias…particularly since Tyr has been given this conspicuous preeminence among modern-day occultists.
FURTHER INDICATIONS FROM SMITH:
Then there is the fact that early in Smith’s career, he gave an interview (Inside Music magazine, Jan/Feb 1991 issue – page 23) in which he very strangely expressed enthusiastic admiration for a rock band called the Alan Parsons Project, a group with blatant Luciferian allegiances. Smith went so far as to name his first album “The Michael Smith Project“.
Below, the cover of the Alan Parsons Project album “EYE IN THE SKY” which has a depiction of the Egyptian/Satanic “Eye of Ra”:
And yet another (self-explanatory) album cover:
Below: Smith’s first album – the “Michael W. Smith Project”
Smith, in like manner to Alan Parsons Project, published another album cover later on (1988) where it seems very clear that he is also indicating this Eye of Horus/Ra. In order to better understand this, we need to first take a closer look at the Eye of Ra or “all-seeing eye” occult symbol. In the modern era, the Eye has been adopted as a luciferian/Masonic symbol and is used by a huge array of occultists and occult groups.
Probably the most famous depiction of the “all-seeing eye” is on the U.S. One Dollar bill, where we see this eye placed inside of a triangle (which is yet another occult symbol). But the Eye of Horus is also cropping up in many other places these days.
Below are some examples of the luciferian Eye of Horus symbol: Top to bottom– the Dollar bill; the classic Egyptian “Eye of Ra”; a movie poster for “Aeon Flux”; and pop star Madonna.
It is amazing and disappointing how many Bible Christians there are who will breezily and absentmindedly declare this is simply the “eye of God”. Come on, people! It doesn’t take two minutes of research to confirm this is a thousands-year-old occult/satanic symbol. The eye/triangle is one the most iconic occult symbols there are. And on the Dollar bill it is seen hovering over an Egyptian pyramid. What does the Lord Jesus have to do with Egyptian pyramids? The imagery is signifying an endorsement of the ancient mystery religions of Egypt…which were thoroughly and explicitly satanic.
The hovering “eye” is symbolically depicting the longed-for and highly anticipated (by Luciferians) coming of a satanic New World Order. And of course, stated directly below the pyramid is “NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM” i.e “new world order”. This has not been a reference to American government, and various globalists over the years have made that quite clear.
From the biblical perspective, it is a reference to the long-prophesied Antichrist regime. The Antichrist’s ‘heyday’…and which will last only a relatively short 2 to 3 (very brutal) years (if you’ve studied your Bible carefully!).
Continuing our look at this eye/triangle symbolism, ask the question – is the movie “Aeon Flux” trying to give glory and indicate allegiance to the Lord God? Is Madonna trying to give honor to the Lord Jesus? No. They are tipping the hat to the “spirit of this world”. In other words, the Devil.
Most conservative Christians have never realized this but…it becomes quite obvious upon closer examination that there are hundreds if not thousands of corporate logos which utilize occult symbolism. It certainly drives home the point of 1John 5:19 – “the whole world lies under the control of the evil one”.
And there are particularly quite a few of these logos which present modified versions of the “all-seeing eye”…also referred to as the “Eye of Ra” or the “Eye of Horus”. Below are some examples.
Top to bottom: America Online, Time Warner…a bit further down, ICON Entertainment, and LucasArts.
The Time Warner logo is depicting the “Eye of Ra” occult symbol with particular explicitness, by virtue of that line that comes swooping down beneath the ‘eye’ (compare it to the Eye of Ra presentation above).
ICON Entertainment and LucasArts (both shown below) on the other hand, are examples of the eye/triangle combo version of the “all-seeing eye” symbol.
And these two logos also give you a good idea of the subtle (and one could even say ‘sneaky’) modifications that are often incorporated in an apparent attempt to disguise the symbol. By that I mean…notice with these two logos (ICON and LucasArts) how, in both instances, the “eye” is rather slyly tilting into the corner, to create a rough approximation of a triangle/eye combination.
Also, notice the visual misdirection of the LucasArts logo, whereby the stick figure ‘man’ with the uplifted arms is all that most people will ever notice.
You are going to see a wide variety of modifications with these occult symbols. This sort of thing is considered ‘par for the course’ in the occult world. After all, the very word “occult” means “secret” or “hidden”. It is the objective of any true occultist…to disguise and to hide his occult allegiance (a salute to the powers of darkness) from “regular” folks like you and me.
So now, when we look at this Michael Smith album cover (shown below), it is cause for serious concern. The title of this particular CD is — I2(EYE). What in the world does that mean?
The album title is enigmatic, at the very least. By all rights, there should be no room in Christianity for enigmas and creepy secretiveness, should there? Secretiveness is the essence of occultism.
So then, notice in the background, a shaded triangle (behind Smith’s photo), and at the one corner of the triangle (not as easy to see)…there is the title in red letters– I2(EYE) .
Triangle+EYE…get it? Granted, this eye/triangle occult symbol is being presented in a coded fashion…but that, I believe, only makes this more ominous.
By itself, we might brush off this CD cover design as coincidental. But in context…having previously observed the other occult symbolism, this becomes very significant.
And while we’re on the subject of “eyes” which have been depicted tilting subtly into a corner for the purpose of creating an approximated triangle/eye presentation…notice once again, Smith’s 1986 album “The Big Picture”…this time the front side of the album:
Notice how one of the child’s eyes has been obscured in the shadows, and how the remaining eye has been positioned into one of the corners of the picture frame!
Absolutely chilling. It should certainly make the hair stand up on the back of one’s neck.
Again, use a bit of common sense: What else would this otherwise inexplicable photographic imagery signify? Obviously, the significance is concealed. The significance is hidden. In other words, this graphic has…a secret, i.e. occult significance.
And this is on the album cover of what is supposed to be a conservative Bible-believing Christian musician, for heaven’s sake!
By the way, here is the back side of Smith’s “I2(EYE)” album which is now showing a very obvious pyramid depiction (below):
One question that emerges at this point:
“ARE THESE SYMBOLS POSSIBLY BEING DISPLAYED WITHOUT SMITH’S (AND OTHERS’) KNOWLEDGE?”
You can certainly press that question to your satisfaction. One thing to keep in mind– if we were to theorize that Michael Smith, Pat Robertson and dozens (and hundreds) like them have not been personally involved in all of this, we’re still looking at evidence of a huge infiltration of satanists into the church world.
Think about it — even if we were to theorize there has been an army of ‘infiltrators’ who have somehow been able to surround these Christian luminaries without their knowledge, this would still be an extremely serious situation.
And then there is the fact that…eventually we find ourselves backed up against the very pages of Scripture. We may not prefer to entertain the possibility of highly placed satanic wolves in the church world but that is exactly what Jesus foretells in the Olivet Discourse, as I will hopefully be able to demonstrate.
MORE OF THE RUNIC “T” FROM SMITH
Michael Smith has founded a “youth club” in downtown Nashville, about a half hour from where he lives in Franklin, Tennessee. The club, Rocketown, hosts an unending parade of satanic death metal rock bands…who perform songs with explicitly satanic lyrics. Simply put, Rocketown is a veritable horror show from the conservative Christian perspective.
I will let you read more about that in Chapter One of my previous e-book. Just scroll down towards the end of the chapter’s section on Michael W. Smith. Look for the photos of the various Rocketown concert posters.
But I do want to note here that Smith’s Rocketown is also utilizing the occult symbol of Tyr — the runic “T”. See below:
A friend of mine pointed out the three rather conspicuous prongs of hair worked into Smith’s hair style in the DVD cover photo seen below. Most likely another Tyr presentation. Rather funny…if the whole thing weren’t so tragic.
If you are wondering whether anyone has approached Smith and/or any of his people requesting answers regarding Rocketown or his many occult symbol presentations…such efforts have been made numerous times with no success. I have two such attempts under my belt.
Above are a couple of examples of the posters that are used to advertise horrendous and blatantly satanic concerts that are routinely presented at Rocketown. There’s something about seeing a depiction of a young woman with a chain plunged into her head, a meathook coming out of the front of her face, and a slashed and bloody throat (the “Promised Threat” poster)…that doesn’t make me think about the message of salvation.
By the way, Rocketown is pitched as a “Christian youth center” to local churches when they are asked for financial support. I went to the trouble of calling a Christian music executive in the Nashville area and asked him about any insights he might have into this reprehensible situation. He had some interesting comments:
Long story short — Pastors and other Christian leaders in the local area know not to rock Smith’s boat, according to this gentleman (who even himself seemed somewhat nervous about the topic). Michael Smith is a giant in the Nashville music industry. You do NOT want to cross Smith, no matter how mild-mannered he may seem to be outwardly. Even when there were a handful of news articles and a news report on the local TV news…not a peep came forth from Christian leadership in the area. Such are the times we live in, in the Evangelical world.
In the next section, Part 2, I want to take a closer look at…speaker and author Kay Arthur…Christian pop singer Toby Mac…’super-pastors’ Greg Laurie and Joel Osteen…as well as a number of others who, while they may not be actual wolves, are nevertheless (shall we say) heavily duped.
Keep in mind, there are virtually innumerable examples. I am only providing a sampling…before getting into a closer look at the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, 25 / Mark 13 / Luke 21).
