PART ONE / PART TWO / PART THREE / FAQs
The Conservative Church World — Headed For Its Greatest Tragedy
The purpose for my little (three-part) blog here is to try to create an awareness of the huge and tragic error being committed by those in the conservative “Evangelical” church world of today…in brushing aside the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24,25/Mark 13/Luke 21).
You may not even have been aware this “obscuring” has occurred but it has…and there isn’t the slightest shred of an excuse or justification for sidestepping this all-important passage.
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.
This phenomenon has developed exactly as Jesus foretold in the Olivet Discourse…along with many other hugely critical advisories He puts forth regarding the ‘end times’ in this, His final teaching session with the disciples before going to the cross two days later.
So let me first just offer a brief sampling of the evidence which seems to indicate undercover agents in the church. Then secondly, I will present a bit of 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 go into more depth regarding some of the evidence and indications of an infiltration of satanic agents.
MICHAEL W. SMITH: FRIEND OR FOE…OR WORSE?
By way of brief description for those who are not familiar, this is a man who has resided in the top circles of conservative Christianity for almost four decades. He also has had a close personal friendship with the Bush family (who are supposedly also “Evangelicals”). He is ‘golf buddies’ with George W., for example, and hangs out at the Bush “compound” in Kennebunkport. He has had a close relationship with Billy Graham and appeared on any number of his television programs over the years.
In other words, Smith is a kind of ‘super-VIP’ in the Evangelical world. Virtually the current leading figure…the ‘senior member’ (as it were) of the contemporary Christian music (CCM) world.
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. However, when you take a closer look at those lyrics, the first signs of trouble emerge: You begin to notice his songs are systematically lacking in a number of significant ways…in particular, absent are specific references to the Lord Jesus (with only one or two exceptions that I could find), His shed blood, and anything close to a Gospel presentation. And I’ve read through almost all of his lyrics in the process of my research..
So then, notice below some of the anomalous aspects regarding Smith’s published materials. There is much more information about this man (seen further below in this article) and much more evidence to show regarding hundreds of others in the conservative Evangelical world…who display camouflaged and coded indications of occult allegiances.
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 a moment: Twelve years previous to the above album, Smith’s “The Big Picture” album was released (in 1986 – see below). One thing to observe right off the top, 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 is of primary interest 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 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 accidently used a couple of runic letters.
Wait a minute– Take another closer look at this “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.
Ask the question–What in the world is Smith otherwise doing…standing on a chair, striking this weird pose, out in the middle of the snow?
There is therefore, simply no mistaking the fact that on at least two of his CDs, his album art is displaying these runic/Luciferian symbols…and is doing so in a secret, coded fashion. That is extremely and pointedly ominous. (Again, the “Christmastime” album was released in 1998.)
As we go along further in an examination of occultism, you will see that these occultists use symbols and signals as their very ‘language’. Their form of communication.
A bit further down in this article, I present more examples of evidence regarding Michael W. Smith. Keep in mind there are dozens and hundreds of such indications from Smith’s published materials.
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!
THE OLIVET DISCOURSE: AN ‘END TIMES’ SURVIVAL MANUAL
Before I delve deeper into some more of the evidence regarding this emergence of undercover agents, let me say a few words in an attempt to awaken the reader to the supreme importance of the Olivet Discourse:
Jesus chose to present the Olivet Discourse as His final lesson hour. In fact, two days later He went to the cross. The Discourse could not have been placed in a more prominent position in the Gospels.
The passage stands as a veritable monument of parting advice and instruction. If you knew, as Jesus did, you only had two days left to live on this earth and were able to gather your loved ones to your death bed (as it were)…what words would you choose? You would address all of the most important issues, would you not?
As a 22 year-old, I actually had that experience when my dying father (a pastor and Christian leader) gathered his family around him for his last words of care, concern and advice. Words I will never forget.
In His presentation, Jesus put forward dire warnings and critical advisories to believers. Literally an ‘end times’ survivor manual for the end of the world and the arrival of God’s kingdom to earth.
In hindsight, having once participated in this ‘brushing aside’ mindset, I am amazed and astounded there is, in today’s church world, this systematic obscuring of what has to be the most critical passage for ‘end times’ believers (such as we are).
To be clear, the Discourse was addressed directly to “the disciples”…i.e. believers…i.e. followers of Jesus. Jesus’ audience is specified right in the text...regardless of the shockingly contradictory counter-claims of certain proponents within the conservative church world, specifically the advocates of “Pretribulation rapture” doctrine. (We get into this shortly.)
Among believers today, there is unfortunately almost zero awareness and zero preparedness for this earth-shaking event of which Jesus clearly warns…the Abomination of Desolation. This signaling event kicks off a time of great troubles and tribulation which will precede the glorious return of the King of Kings:
Matthew 24:15,21,29,30 – “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation’…then there will be great tribulation…but after the tribulation of those days…they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”.
WHY HAS THERE BEEN THIS ODD DISMISSAL OF THE OLIVET DISCOURSE?
There are two different sub-groups within modern-day mainstream Evangelicalism which are responsible for this tragic brushing aside, in which it is declared the Discourse is virtually ‘non-applicable’ to believers.
There are the PreTribulation Rapture proponents whose views we briefly discuss directly below and more extensively in Part Three…and then there are the advocates of Dominionism who are aggressively dismissive of any and all “rapture” and Bible prophecy issues. Think Rick Warren, as one example.
PreTrib proponents want to claim the Olivet Discourse does not apply to believers because Jesus taught there that believers (“the disciples” as they are referred to in the passage) will be on earth during the time of great tribulation…something which PreTrib directly contradicts, with its claims of a removal of the believers, not just before the Great Tribulation (a phase which begins at the middle point of the end time events) but before the entirety of the 70th Week seven-year period.
This is a doctrine which was first popularized in America during the late 1800’s by a certain C.I. Scofield.
Regardless of the claims of PreTribbers and the dismissiveness of Dominionists, the Discourse was delivered directly to believers — Peter, James, John, Andrew were believers (and whoever else among the believers may have been there).
To impose an arbitrary assertion upon this text…in claiming that Jesus did not view His followers as followers and believers…but rather only as “Jews” (as PreTrib proponents try to argue)…is indeed, just that – an arbitrary assertion.
And it is an assertion which directly contradicts the text. The very text of the Olivet Discourse declares “the disciples came to Jesus, asking Him…”. Thus, the Olivet Discourse was addressed directly to “the disciples”, i.e. to believers in Jesus. I recall the old saying I was taught many years ago while a student at Grand Rapids School of the Bible: “A text without a context is a pretext”!
WHO TO BELIEVE? JESUS OR MR. LAHAYE?
I just have to say, with no intent to disrespect but…sometimes I find the arguments for PreTrib doctrine to be utterly flabbergasting (is that a word?). Jesus, in point blank fashion, told the disciples that if they would happen to live to see these end times which He was describing, they would be supernaturally “gathered” (or the most familiar term – “raptured”) AFTER the time of great tribulation.
AND YET…in direct contradiction to Jesus’ statement…PreTrib proponents would claim that any believer during the Christian era, including Peter, James. John, and Andrew…would need to expect a “PreTrib rapture” (by which they mean a pre-“70th Week” rapture).
These proponents are actually arguing that Peter, James and John would have experienced a PRE-trib rapture…in absolute, complete and total contradiction to Jesus’ crystal clear words to the disciples.
And what is of further interest…Jesus made a point of saying He did not know when these end time events would happen. (“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” – Matthew 24:36)
In other words, it was entirely possible these events WOULD happen within the lifetimes of Peter, James and John. In fact, from Jesus’ overall wording and from the wording seen throughout the New Testament, one might argue there seems to have been a leaning towards the thinking Jesus’ return would likely happen sooner rather than later…and would happen within the first generation of the Christian era.
This creates an unresolvable doctrinal conflict for PreTrib: If PreTrib proponents such as Tim LaHaye could time-travel back to the first-generation era…what would Mr. LaHaye have asserted to these disciples?
Let’s say that a number of years may have transpired. With one or two decades of the disciples’ earthly ministry under their belt, imagine Tim LaHaye or Hal Lindsey or John Walvoord coming forward with the assertion – “Yes, I know you were taught an Olivet Discourse post-‘great tribulation’ rapture. But I’m here to teach you a PRE-70th Week rapture”.
Where and when did the disciples ever come forward in any of their writings and state – “We have something extraordinary to report: We have decided to directly contradict our Lord Jesus’ teachings in the Olivet Discourse!”.
Where and when did that happen on the pages of Scripture?
In the thinking of PreTrib proponents, from the first generation of the Christian era and onwards…all believers have needed to expect a supernatural translation (i.e. a rapture) BEFORE the entire “70th Week” seven-year period…even though it is in direct contradiction to what Jesus had told His followers!
Jesus told them to expect a supernatural translation AFTER a time of “great tribulation”. The dead-on contradiction of these PreTrib assertions to what Jesus stated…are just amazing. They are mind-boggling.
And yet…this is the belief and the teaching of a huge array of the top Christian leaders in the present day — David Jeremiah, John MacArthur, Grant Jeffrey, John Walvoord, Dave Hunt, Charles Ryrie, Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye and numerous others.
But if Peter, James and John…as believers, as “disciples”, and as followers of Jesus…needed, throughout the remainder of their lives, to expect a “gathering”/rapture only after the time of great tribulation, as Jesus told them…then we believers, 2000 years later, need to expect the same thing.
Jesus issued the gravest of warnings…that His followers are to be prepared and braced for this gigantic, earthshaking, globe-impacting event – the Abomination of Desolation…which then kicks off a period of unprecedented persecution.
But the church world today, particularly in cozy-comfy USA…has not the first clue. Not one iota of awareness. Not one muscle has been twitched in preparation for this crisis among vast millions of misled believers.
They have been told they will be taken up to heaven before these events…per the assertions of PreTrib doctrine. Or they have been guided by false teachers (proponents of Dominionism) into a flippant dismissiveness regarding all things related to Bible prophecy.
Subsequently, all of Jesus’ comments in Matthew 25 regarding the required spiritual preparation (in His concluding portion of the Olivet Discourse) are being almost universally overlooked…again, because of a systematic obscuring of the Olivet Discourse. There is probably not 1 in 1000 believers who is actually studying, reading and heeding these instructions in Matthew 25.
There is NO preparation going on, on the part of most believers…particularly among prosperous Western nations. There are NO prayers being lifted up to heaven, asking God to strengthen during the time of troubles. There is virtually NO awareness of the oncoming crisis…astonishing though that might be.
AN ONCOMING LOCOMOTIVE
The church world today is sitting on the train tracks with the Abomination of Desolation locomotive bearing down at 100 mph! 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 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.
Every believer who to this point had been unaware of this situation, needs to drop everything they are doing and dive head first into a prayerful study of the Olivet Discourse and begin preparing to go through this time of “great tribulation” of which Jesus foretells!
Don’t finish your breakfast. Don’t finish mowing the lawn. Don’t finish your golf game. Don’t finish watching Real Housewives of New York. Put on a large pot of coffee and plunge into a study of Jesus’ last lesson hour, the Olivet Discourse. Pray, fast, meditate, and read these passages (Matthew 24,25 / Mark 13 / Luke 21) over and over and over. Study these words carefully for the days, weeks, months and years you may have left!
RISING CONCERN AND CONFUSION AMONG CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS
I grew up with a very strong sense of security and confidence…that American Christians in particular would never really have to worry about any serious threats nor have any concerns about extreme persecution. I no longer believe this fairy tale.
And in recent years, with the onset of “terror” events, mass shootings, the potential for “race wars”, mysterious “diseases” which seem to spring up all across the globe, earthquakes and volcanoes being set off at alarming rates, indications of impending economic collapse, and all the political and military dangers emerging all over the world…I have noticed American Christians eyeing each other with increasing concern and nervousness:
“Uh, are you sure this PreTrib rapture is going to show up in time? Just how much trouble might we have to go through before we experience that rapture I’ve been taught about, which promises to whisk us off to heaven on flowery beds of ease before ‘all the bad stuff happens’?
DIABOLICAL ‘WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING’ AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS:
As you may have already begun to note, this is electrifying, mind boggling, mind-blowing, paradigm-shifting stuff. Many folks will have difficulty fitting this into their heads.
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, 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.
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 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 (2Corinthians 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 where they can hunch over a reassuring Café Latte.
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 want 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. There should be an immediate and deep concern. Just what IS Robertson signaling? And to WHOM is he signaling?
It certainly isn’t a message sent to his Christian followers. 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 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 – 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 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.
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.
Here 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.
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.
By the way, here is the back side of Smith’s “I2(EYE)” album which is now showing a very obvious pyramid depiction (below):
Two questions may be arising in your mind at this point: 1) How does this actually connect to the Bible and the Olivet Discourse. Don’t worry — I’m getting there! Hang on a bit longer.
And the second question, more to the 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).
