There is a lot of talk in today’s society about Oneness and Unity. It seems the darker things get the more people are drawn together, and the more their need for connectedness is exploited by evil forces. God created Man, because HE had a desire for connectedness, for fellowship, for family. The world is a lonely place without company. So we all have the desire deep inside to be connected, to be loved, to be accepted.
The hype is everywhere, you cannot escape it. It pulls on your heart strings, especially of those who have been isolated through their dependence on technology. Families have been separated by time and distance as our society became more and more mobile. Many jobs require travel, relocation to distant places, and long hours away from home. Many people have found themselves working two jobs just to pay the bills, and couples have found that both parties had to work for the same reason. Separation in many forms has left us with a huge deficit of connectedness and love.
#COVID19 is a public health emergency — that is fast becoming a human rights crisis.
People — and their rights — must be front and centre.

Former President George W. Bush called for unity in the country’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, in a video published Saturday on Twitter.
The big picture: The crisis has incited clashes between states and the federal government as well as between Democrats and Republicans, as governors decide how to exit stay-at-home orders and Congress passes trillion-dollar stimulus packages to stanch unemployment levels that could exceed those of the Great Depression.

What he’s saying: “Finally, let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat. In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants. We are human beings, equally vulnerable, and equally wonderful, in the sight of God. (Not True, there are two sets of people on the earth, God’s children and Satan’s seed. We are not to unite with those who HATE GOD!) We rise or fall together, and we are determined to rise,” Bush said in the video statement.
“THE CURRENT PANDEMIC INSTEAD MUST COMPEL PEOPLE TO PREPARE FOR A “COLLECTIVE FUTURE” THAT SEES THE WHOLE HUMAN FAMILY AS ONE AND HOLDS ALL OF THE EARTH’S GIFTS IN COMMON IN ORDER TO BE SHARED JUSTLY WITH THOSE IN NEED”
That all sounds just perfectly righteous and lovely doesn’t it? Truly, for most human beings that is our hearts desire, that everyone be happy, healthy and well fed. RIGHT? True enough, for the common man who just wants to live out his life and enjoy his family that is true. BUT, if you think for one minute that those in power share that sentiment, you better think again.
Ever since the Tower of Babel the rulers of this world have been feverishly working to bring us back to BABYLON! We have been seeing and hearing evidence of this throughout the centuries. This desire of their’s was clearly given voice on more than one occasion by Ronald Reagan.
Yes, unity, love, connectedness are very important. ABSOLUTELY! But,with whom or what are we becoming united?? ONE with WHO? That is the question we need to answer.
There was a time in history when we KNOW that there was a similar movement. The cry was UNITY! And the PEOPLE were ONE… let’s review that shall we?
11: 1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. (Brick as opposed to stone, Brick because it represents Man building of his own without God. Stone represents that which God Created.)
4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The story details are filled in a little more in the Book of Jasher, giving a clearer picture of what was really happening.
Story of the Tower of Babel
Book of Jasher, Chapter 9
1 And Haran, the son of Terah, Abram’s oldest brother, took a wife in those days.
2 Haran was thirty-nine years old when he took her; and the wife of Haran conceived and bare a son, and he called his name Lot.
3 And she conceived again and bare a daughter, and she called her name Milca; and she again conceived and bare a daughter, and she called her name Sarai.
4 Haran was forty-two years old when he begat Sarai, which was in the tenth year of the life of Abram; and in those days Abram and his mother and nurse went out from the cave, as the king and his subjects had forgotten the affair of Abram.
5 And when Abram came out from the cave, he went to Noah and his son Shem, and he remained with them to learn the instruction of the Lord and his ways, and no man knew where Abram was, and Abram served Noah and Shem his son for a long time.
6 And Abram was in Noah’s house thirty-nine years, and Abram knew the Lord from three years old, and he went in the ways of the Lord until the day of his death, as Noah and his son Shem had taught him; and all the sons of the earth in those days greatly transgressed against the Lord, and they rebelled against him and they served other gods, and they forgot the Lord who had created them in the earth; and the inhabitants of the earth made unto themselves, at that time, every man his god; gods of wood and stone which could neither speak, hear, nor deliver, and the sons of men served them and they became their gods.
7 And the king and all his servants, and Terah with all his household were then the first of those that served gods of wood and stone.20
8 And Terah had twelve gods of large size, made of wood and stone, after the twelve months of the year, and he served each one monthly, and every month Terah would bring his meat offering and drink offering to his gods; thus did Terah all the days.
9 And all that generation were wicked in the sight of the Lord, and they thus made every man his god, but they forsook the Lord who had created them.
10 And there was not a man found in those days in the whole earth, who knew the Lord (for they served each man his own God) except Noah and his household, and all those who were under his counsel knew the Lord in those days.
11 And Abram the son of Terah was waxing great in those days in the house of Noah, and no man knew it, and the Lord was with him.
12 And the Lord gave Abram an understanding heart, and he knew all the works of that generation were vain, and that all their gods were vain and were of no avail.
13 And Abram saw the sun shining upon the earth, and Abram said unto himself Surely now this sun that shines upon the earth is God, and him will I serve.
14 And Abram served the sun in that day and he prayed to him, and when evening came the sun set as usual, and Abram said within himself, Surely this cannot be God?
15 And Abram still continued to speak within himself, Who is he who made the heavens and the earth? who created upon earth? where is he?
16 And night darkened over him, and he lifted up his eyes toward the west, north, south, and east, and he saw that the sun had vanished from the earth, and the day became dark.
17 And Abram saw the stars and moon before him, and he said, Surely this is the God who created the whole earth as well as man, and behold these his servants are gods around him: and Abram served the moon and prayed to it all that night.
18 And in the morning when it was light and the sun shone upon the earth as usual, Abram saw all the things that the Lord God had made upon earth.
19 And Abram said unto himself Surely these are not gods that made the earth and all mankind, but these are the servants of God, and Abram remained in the house of Noah and there knew the Lord and his ways’ and he served the Lord all the days of his life, and all that generation forgot the Lord, and served other gods of wood and stone, and rebelled all their days.
20 And king Nimrod reigned securely, and all the earth was under his control, and all the earth was of one tongue and words of union.
21 And all the princes of Nimrod and his great men took counsel together; Phut, Mitzraim, Cush and Canaan with their families, and they said to each other, Come let us build ourselves a city and in it a strong tower, and its top reaching heaven, and we will make ourselves famed, so that we may reign upon the whole world, in order that the evil of our enemies may cease from us, that we may reign mightily over them, and that we may not become scattered over the earth on account of their wars.
22 And they all went before the king, and they told the king these words, and the king agreed with them in this affair, and he did so.
23 And all the families assembled consisting of about six hundred thousand men, and they went to seek an extensive piece of ground to build the city and the tower, and they sought in the whole earth and they found none like one valley at the east of the land of Shinar, about two days’ walk, and they journeyed there and they dwelt there.
24 And they began to make bricks and burn fires to build the city and the tower that they had imagined to complete.
25 And the building of the tower was unto them a transgression and a sin, and they began to build it, and whilst they were building against the Lord God of heaven, they imagined in their hearts to war against him and to ascend into heaven.
26 And all these people and all the families divided themselves in three parts; the first said We will ascend into heaven and fight against him; the second said, We will ascend to heaven and place our own gods there and serve them; and the third part said, We will ascend to heaven and smite him with bows and spears; and God knew all their works and all their evil thoughts, and he saw the city and the tower which they were building.
27 And when they were building they built themselves a great city and a very high and strong tower; and on account of its height the mortar and bricks did not reach the builders in their ascent to it, until those who went up had completed a full year, and after that, they reached to the builders and gave them the mortar and the bricks; thus was it done daily.
28 And behold these ascended and others descended the whole day; and if a brick should fall from their hands and get broken, they would all weep over it, and if a man fell and died, none of them would look at him.
29 And the Lord knew their thoughts, and it came to pass when they were building they cast the arrows toward the heavens, and all the arrows fell upon them filled with blood, and when they saw them they said to each other, Surely we have slain all those that are in heaven.
30 For this was from the Lord in order to cause them to err, and in order; to destroy them from off the face of the ground.
31 And they built the tower and the city, and they did this thing daily until many days and years were elapsed.
32 And God said to the seventy angels who stood foremost before him, to those who were near to him, saying, Come let us descend and confuse their tongues, that one man shall not understand the language of his neighbor, and they did so unto them.
33 And from that day following, they forgot each man his neighbor’s tongue, and they could not understand to speak in one tongue, and when the builder took from the hands of his neighbor lime or stone which he did not order, the builder would cast it away and throw it upon his neighbor, that he would die.
34 And they did so many days, and they killed many of them in this manner.
35 And the Lord smote the three divisions that were there, and he punished them according to their works and designs; those who said, We will ascend to heaven and serve our gods, became like apes and elephants; and those who said, We will smite the heaven with arrows, the Lord killed them, one man through the hand of his neighbor; and the third division of those who said, We will ascend to heaven and fight against him, the Lord scattered them throughout the earth.
36 And those who were left amongst them, when they knew and understood the evil which was coming upon them, they forsook the building, and they also became scattered upon the face of the whole earth.
37 And they ceased building the city and the tower; therefore he called that place Babel, for there the Lord confounded the Language of the whole earth; behold it was at the east of the land of Shinar.
38 And as to the tower which the sons of men built, the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up one third part thereof, and a fire also descended from heaven and burned another third, and the other third is left to this day, and it is of that part which was aloft, and its circumference is three days’ walk.
39 And many of the sons of men died in that tower, a people without number.
This next article is lengthy because it covers a lot of ground but if you read the entire article it will help you to understand so much about the Tower of Babel, and the search for the ancient wisdom and how it all applies to today.
Many who present themselves as intellectuals are convinced that the ancient narratives of the Bible are nothing more than fictional stories concocted around ancient tribal campfires.
One of these is the story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, said by some to be simply a mythical explanation of how mankind came to speak different languages. The scoffers say that early men could not possibly have built a tower that would reach to heaven … their declared intention as given in Scripture. Today, we have skyscrapers much higher than the original Tower of Babel. Furthermore, those on the upper floors of these modern megaliths do not suddenly experience having their common language compromised. Nor do they acquire an ability to commune with angels.
On the other hand, we believe the story of the ancient Tower is true, and that the men who built it had access to a type of knowledge that has since been lost. In fact, it seems to have been an arcane knowledge that God would not allow unregenerate man to possess.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the Babel debacle in an effort to understand what post-flood society was really doing. God, Himself, took special notice of their wicked work.
As an article of faith, we believe that Moses wrote the five books attributed to him. Though some may question his authorship, we are convinced that he gave an accurate account of those key historical events that occurred during the 2,500 years from the creation of Adam to his day.
Jesus, speaking to the leaders of Israel, dramatically affirmed that Moses wrote the books attributed to his name:
“45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me” (John 5:45,46).
He wrote the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. They systematically delineate God’s Creation, man’s fall and the line of Messianic redemption that would emerge from the family lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Late in the 15th century B.C., his writings were compiled — probably by the Levites – priestly successors of Aaron. So, about five hundred years before the accession of David and the Kingdom period, these books had been copied into a single scroll, called the “Scroll of Moses.”
It is important to remember that under the leading of God’s Spirit, Moses collated and anthologized a number of histories, going all the way back to the creation of the world, and of Adam. Over the centuries, several Sumerian and Akkadian clay tablets have been found to include striking details of events that were apparently quoted (if inaccurately) from the five books of Moses!
Yet, from among these historical records, the Lord anointed Moses to record a true history of mankind. Doubtless, some details were omitted, and others added, as God gave him insight. One thing is certain: the historical documents the Lord gave to Moses are a pure distillation of human history.
Moreover, their point of view is specifically that of a world seen through God’s eyes. Mankind is critically appraised and found deficient. He is viewed with a brutal frankness that could never have come from a human oligarchy, which always tends to flatter itself.
One has only to look through the bulk of the ancient cuneiform writings of Sumer to see humanity in full self-adulation. At the same time, these early post-Flood societies are lost in the deep convolutions of idolatry.
LONGING FOR AN “ANCIENT WISDOM”
In secular accounts of man’s early history, there is always the distinct overtone of loss and separation. That is, early man viewed himself as having been cut off from a source of wisdom and power that he had once obtained from “the gods.”
In ancient Sumer (the Biblical Shinar, later to be known as Babylon), ancient scribes wrote fantastic accounts of gods who descended in their flying machines and taught men exotic skills and philosophies. Such trysts with the gods led to innumerable idolatries, such as the worship of Ishtar and Tammuz, Baal and Oannes, the talking fish-god who came forth from the great river to teach men the lost arts. He was said to emerge periodically, to speak his wise words to the leaders of mankind.
In one way or another, the men of this period were continually trying to reunite with the gods who had formerly been so close to them. Approximately fourteen to twenty centuries later, the Persians, Greeks and Romans launched their own versions of these fantastic histories. Their mythologies are full of stories about how the gods once walked among men, giving them the great knowledge of the gods that had since been lost. These were the so-called “Arcadian Myths.” They tell of a time when the gods capriciously appeared to bless or curse humanity. On the whole, however, this period was characterized by great tranquility and perfection, when man wanted for nothing, and was on the verge of achieving godhood, himself.
Of course, Genesis 6 gives God’s view of this era, when fallen angels corrupted mankind to the point that its destruction was the only alternative. Still, men longed (and still do) for a repetition of this condition. They believe it is their only salvation. In this generation, the flying gods of old have been renamed: They are the “ancient astronauts.” Once again, the old myths of the gods who created man are rising in the public consciousness.
Homer called one narrative of this ancient culture, “Atlantis,” recounting the myth of its destruction by a great flood. And though his account is garbled and mixed with fable, it surely recalls the event known in the Bible as the Great Flood of Noah.
Through the period of the Greeks and Romans — and all the way to the present — man has sought through his own efforts to regain this deeply buried pool of lost knowledge. He is, in short, trying to claw his way back up to the position that was lost when Adam sinned and became separated from God. And the condition prevailed after that, when the offspring of Cain became associated in a fast-and-loose illicit relationship with fallen angels.
Man still operates with a gnawing sense of loss. Even in the early twenty-first century, the new stratagems of science are considered to be humanity’s access to glorification … to self-redemption. Human genetic research, we are told, is on the verge of being able to create a “superman.” Trans-humanism is an increasing subject in scientific dialogue. Quantum physics is said to be near the point of allowing man to penetrate the dimensional barrier that prevents him from scaling the heights to the spirit world, and an empowered life of perfection and awareness.
The energies of the human psyche are now probing the barriers of time and space. What was once called “clairvoyance,” is now called “remote viewing,” a technique employed by our own intelligence community to mentally spy on military and industrial enemies. It is said by some that they are able to peer into the future!
With his particle accelerators, proton emission tomography scanners, with gas chromatographs and radiation sensors, man is once again building a virtual “tower” that will reach the heavens. Some speak of the gigantic particle accelerator in Switzerland – CERN – as an effort to open a “portal” into another dimension.
In today’s new physics, even the mathematical mumblings and meditations of theoreticians sound like the metaphysics of Zen Buddhism. The line between pure science and Eastern religion is being blurred.
Higher and higher is his goal; man wants to reach his ancient and arcane treasure house. He deeply desires to break through the barriers that are holding him back. As we shall see, his quest is not new; it is only a repetition of an ancient mystery religion.
THE REASON FOR THE FLOOD
Moses didn’t write simply to record history. There is reason and purpose behind every syllable — indeed, every letter — of his five books. The style is remarkably straightforward. To the seeker of God’s wisdom, it progressively opens layer after layer of meaning. Bit by bit, as man is capable of understanding, the books are opened and one discovers that … voilà! … they perfectly expound God’s plan for man.
They do so in a compact manner that humans, writing on their own behalf, never seem to master. For example, the reason for the Great Flood of Noah is given in only four verses:
“5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:5-8).
Without entering into the debate about the deeper theological meaning of “repented,” it is clear from this statement that God decided to destroy all but a tiny remnant of humanity.
This was radical action, indeed! And there is no need to ask why such an extreme step had to be taken. The “gods” of paganism not only walked among men, but were apparently free to teach their heresies, bestow mystical powers, and allow themselves to be worshipped.
“4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Genesis 6:4).
The “giants” were the Nephilim, or “fallen ones.” They were the “angels” of Jude 6, who “… kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation….” Their wickedness was of such extreme depth that they are locked away for a special judgment at the throne of God.
They usurped the position reserved for God, alone. Posing as man’s creators and sustainers, they encouraged the worship of those whom they had duped. Ultimately, they corrupted the human ancestral lineage of man. Only Noah and his family retained their genetic purity.
In the ancient Book of Enoch, these fallen angels are said to have lusted after the beautiful daughters of men. Furthermore, they were well aware that they were sinning and agreed to commit their wicked acts as a group in order to evade possible punishment.
They taught the women “charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants.”
One, named Azazel, “taught men to make swords and knives and shields and breastplates and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets and ornaments and the use of antimony and the beautifying of the eyelids and all kinds of costly stones and all coloring tinctures.”
Another, named Semjaza, “taught enchantments.” Still another, called Baraqijal, “taught astrology.” Kokabel taught “the constellations;” Araqiel, “the signs of the earth;” Shamsiel, “the signs of the sun;” and Sariel, “the signs of the moon.”
Thus, were antediluvian men said to have received the knowledge of the biological and physical sciences, chemistry and the illegal metaphysical arts. No doubt, God had already given Adam and his lineage considerable knowledge. It was wisdom of the kind that would glorify Him.
But under the reign of fallen angels, forbidden knowledge entered the picture. Corrupt priesthoods flourished and illicit discernment grew, even as mankind plunged ahead on its suicidal course.
Following the Great Flood of Noah, mankind was given a restored covenant. Unfortunately, Noah’s offspring were not free from the temptations that had wiped out the men of their former civilization.
The ground had hardly dried when the sin of Ham once again introduced a dark side into the picture of human development. As Noah and his sons descended to the Mesopotamian plain, evil crept into their post-Flood society like leavening through a loaf of rising bread.
Again they longed for the support of the heavenly benefactors who had revealed arcane wisdom before the worldwide deluge. Having tasted of the power that accompanied the fallen angels, they began to glorify the experience. Remember, Genesis 6:4 refers to the days before the Flood, and says that the same situation also occurred “after that”:
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that …” (Genesis 6:4).
THE WAY UP FROM DOWN
Following the Flood, the sons of Shem, Ham and Japheth would logically have busied themselves with restoring normal life. They would have worked to set up enclaves and outposts across the landscape. Working in barren terrain, they literally had to reinvent their societies and cultures.
The lineage of Shem eventually populated the Middle East and Far East.
The descendants of Ham and his son, Canaan, produced the ancient civilizations between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers … the general area of the biblical land called Shinar. Later, they were to travel south and westward into Africa.
Japheth was the progenitor of the Eurasian and Greco-Roman Gentiles.
But before they became established in these far-flung locations, they were apparently drawn together in an instinctive drive for self-preservation.
The Bible gives a brief statement about the conditions of this period in two short sentences:
“1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there” (Genesis 11:1,2).
The fact that these Flood survivors are said to have “journeyed from the east,” tells us that they must have first come down from the mountains of Ararat toward the southeast. There, in the region south of the Caspian Sea, they established their initial encampment.
This was the region of the ancient Median Kingdom (later to become the land of Medo-Persia), where they congregated to assess their lot.
Apparently, after two or three generations, they began to migrate westward to the fertile and pleasant lowlands of Mesopotamia. Perhaps led by a few scouts, they went there to establish themselves.
One can only attempt to understand their plight. These three men, sons of Noah, could well remember the unimaginably blissful environment that characterized the pre-Flood world. The weather and growing conditions had once been perfect. Nutrition and atmospheric conditions afforded agricultural success, peace and longevity that were totally absent in this post-Flood world.
Now, they coped with a thin atmosphere and fickle weather. Dealing with seasonal changes in a scratch-and-grovel agriculture, these men must have doubted their very survival. They were searching for something better in a broken world.
Speaking a unified language, they assessed their situation, then migrated westward to the land of Shinar, which would later be known as the land of Babylon. Here, they consolidated under the leadership of Nimrod:
“8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar” (Genesis 10:8-10).
Alexander Hislop, quoting various historical authorities, identifies a certain “Bel,” founder of Babylon as none other than Cush. His son, Ninus, known in the text of the Bible as Nimrod, was the first ruler of Babylon. He was said to be a giant of a man, who claimed some connection with the power of giants (Nephilim) who had corrupted mankind before the Flood. His promise was the restoration of the world’s former greatness. That which the Lord saw as corruption in Genesis 6, was viewed by Nimrod and his followers as greatness.
Nimrod was a rebel who allowed himself to be worshipped as a god. After the Flood, his rebellion became the foundation of mankind’s greatest religious apostasy. Down through the generations, this system of false worship became known simply as the “Babylonian Mystery Religion.”
Its basis is quite clear. It attempts to channel the power of the ancient gods through the figure of one, powerful man. Nimrod became that god, later worshipped as the mythical Tammuz, whose wife, Semiramis, became the Goddess/Mother of humanity. She is the model for all the ancient fertility goddesses — Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth, Artemis, Isis and Diana.
With exhaustive scholarship, Hislop documents these goddesses as so-called “tower goddesses.” Their ancient effigies wear a distinctive towered headdress, which conjure up the great power of the ancient tower-builders.
Under the leadership of Nimrod, the early post-Flood societies were obviously attempting to reunite with the fallen spirit-beings, who were within their recent historical memory.
The unbearable punishment of living in a world of chaos, disease, unpredictable weather and destructive earthquakes drove them to seek an accursed liaison with the very spirit-beings who had corrupted their peers in the days before the Flood.
“3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:3,4).
Since Moses recorded this event in the context immediately following the post-Flood genealogies of Shem, Ham and Japheth, it must be one of the major events of human history.
From our perspective in the twentieth century, we look back at various ancient cultures and see these “towers” all over the world. Virtually every major culture on Earth involved itself in some form of tower building. Many ancient civilizations from China to the pre-Columbian territories of Central and South America built the monuments that we call pyramids. Silbury Hill in England is a good example. This would seem to make tower-building a common phenomenon. What, then, makes the Tower of Babel so special?
There is the common thought that this Tower was merely a monument to pride. That is, it held no real mystical power, but was simply a device to focus the superstitions of the crowd upon a common goal.
The Bible, itself, dispels this notion. It provides the Lord’s own view of the developing situation. As He observes the activities of the tower builders, we read this profound statement:
“5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Genesis 11:5-7).
Certainly, God did not view their activities as simply a work of superstitious delusion. Rather, His statement reveals a concern that they were on the verge of achieving their primary goal — not just to build a tower, but to break through a barrier to the realm of heaven, itself.They were apparently about to realize some success in penetrating the dimensional veil that separates some aspect of heaven from the earth!
This “tower” would enable men to realize their darkest imaginings. And what had they imagined to do? Simply to renew their contact with the “sons of God,” as their predecessors had done before the Flood.
This is the only apparent way to explain the observations of the Lord as He watched their work. The Flood had presented mankind with a crushing defeat. Now they were simply trying to regain their lost wisdom and power. They had been knocked down; now they were trying to get back up. And they were breaking the laws of heaven and Earth to do it.
THE ANCIENT WISDOM
But there was something more. The actions of the tower builders reflected the misdeeds of men before the Flood. Jewish history recalls that two “towers” were built before the Flood. Doubtless, the busy tower-builders on the plain of Shinar remembered that fact. They knew that — properly executed — a tower of certain specifications could penetrate the dimensional barrier and capture the powers of the very heavens, themselves.
Josephus writes about the pre-Flood sons of Seth. Like their father, they were known for their virtue. They also had enough foresight to know that the world would one day be judged. The sons of Seth were possessors of great knowledge, which they wished to pass on to those who would survive the destruction of the world.
Of them, Josephus writes, “They also were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and their order. And that their inventions might not be lost before they were sufficiently known, upon Adam’s prediction that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and at another time by the violence and quantity of water, they made two pillars; the one of brick, the other of stone: they inscribed their discoveries on them both, that in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind; and also inform them that there was another pillar of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad to this day.”
Josephus wrote his histories at the same time the Apostles were alive and building the early Church. He specifically names the children of Seth, son of Adam, as the keepers of mathematical and astronomical knowledge. Apparently, this was common knowledge among the Jews.
This being the case, it is obvious that this information was handed down from the time of the earliest post-Flood cultures in the land of Shinar. Realizing that their pre-Flood predecessors had built the two towers, they now sought to duplicate this feat. They knew it had been done before the Flood in two different places. Now, possibly on the very spot that the first brick tower had been built, they were on the verge of doing it again.
“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
“Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth” (Genesis 11:8,9).
With this terse statement, the incident of the Tower is brought to a close. This narrative is significantly sandwiched between the genealogy of Noah’s son and the genealogy of Abraham. When the evil work of Nimrod’s followers is thwarted in linguistic confusion, God’s redemptive work upon the human landscape immediately begins in earnest. The Lord appears to Abram and initiates the Covenant of Promise.
THE PUSH TOWARD THE HEAVENS
All this happened about four thousand years ago. During these last four millennia, mankind has marched through a succession of despotic Gentile rulerships. The redemptive lineage of Abraham included the Law of Moses, the establishment and disintegration of the Davidic Kingdom, the northern and southern captivities of Israel and Judah, the coming of Christ, the Diaspora and the Church Age. All the while, corrupt priesthoods have flourished, carrying with them the shadow of Nimrod and his ancient mysteries. Their inner secrets have been known by various names, including alchemy, magic, sorcery, conjuring, soothsaying and so forth.
The innermost order of magician-priests has quietly gone about the consolidation of its powers, waiting for the prophesied day when it would rise once again. This movement will result in the reign of the Antichrist.
Though deeply hidden, the ancient dream of mystical power has retained its identity and its goal of seeking to bring the ancient powers of heaven to mankind. It has subverted many monetary, political and religious movements, including some so-called “Christian” denominations. Arcane and occultist priestly orders have lurked in the shadows of the halls of power.
In the twentieth century, the cults of theosophy and mind-science have progressively emerged to join with Eastern religions. The leaders of Eastern mysticism have the same goals, namely, that of seeking the “wisdom of the ancients.”
Mankind without Christ is drawn to the lure of power like the moth to the flame. But, as witnessed by the incident of Genesis 11, the Lord knows that man in his present degenerate condition would only use that power to destroy himself.
The sons of Seth had access to a pool of knowledge that has been lost. But we must remember that according to Josephus, one of their two “pillars” or towers survived the Flood. It exists to this day in Egypt as a repository of ancient knowledge.
Only in the comparatively recent past has a technology existed that could measure the Great Pyramid on the same scale of accuracy as its original builders.
With optical accuracy, this Pyramid lays out longitude, latitude, solar and sidereal time, the sun-earth distance, the relationship between Earth’s equator and its poles and many other units of measurement too numerous to mention. Furthermore, it was erected in some way that defies modern technology. Engineers have stated that it could not be built today, even with our heavy lifting equipment.
Within the last half-century, some of its proponents say that its very shape in some way captures and redistributes energy on a level that defies understanding. So-called “pyramid power” has been claimed to do everything from preserving food to sharpening blades, if they are left overnight in a pyramid-shaped enclosure.
In this ancient “tower,” one finds that the sciences of astronomy, geography and physics merge with the occult metaphysics that transcend time, space, matter, energy and motion.
In the halls of modern science, it is a curious truth that one finds the same merger going on. It is as though mankind has gone full circle, with modern science painstakingly having arrived at long-forgotten truths.
THE DAYS OF NOAH
The Stone Edition of The Chumash — the annotated Books of Moses — makes the following comment about the circumstances surrounding the Tower of Babel narrative:
“The year of the … narrative is 1996 from Creation, 340 years after the Flood. Noah and his children were still alive at the time, and Abraham 48 years old, had already recognized his Creator. All the national families were concentrated in present day Iraq [kcc, Babel] and they all spoke one language, the Holy Tongue, the language with which the world was created.
“All the ingredients for greatness were there: The nations were united, they were in a central location, they spoke the Holy Tongue, and — if they desired guidance in achieving holiness — they had Noah, Shem, and Abraham among them.”
Sadly, these men chose to follow Nimrod in religious rebellion and turn themselves against the very God of Heaven, Himself. Noah was alive as the Tower of Babel was being built! How sad he must have been to see men once again turning to the same false worship that had produced such corruption before the Flood.
This thought causes us to turn once again to the amazing prophetic statement made by Jesus, as He taught before the Pharisees about His Second Coming. In Luke 17:30, He says, “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
This declaration is preceded by a reference to Noah, the man who bridged the gap between the old world and the new:
“26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all”(Luke 17:26,27).
This prophetic truth is repeated in Matthew’s twenty-fourth chapter, called the “Olivet Discourse.” In both cases, it predicts the corrupted spiritual condition of mankind at Christ’s Second Coming.
At this point, we hardly need point out that the “days of Noah” were characterized by religious rebellion. On the other side of the Flood, the rebellion came as a result of dark and iniquitous interaction between fallen angels and the daughters of men. Josephus says that their union produced the Grecian demigods, called “Titans.” Some men thought of their presence as a blessing. God called it a curse.
On this side of the Flood, Noah witnessed the attempt to renew that illicit relationship. His days didn’t end with the waters that covered the earth. He lived to see the rebellion of Nimrod.
THE OLD GODS MEET THE NEW PHYSICS
And so it is today. Man has turned against God in favor of religious rebellion. It is built upon the theory of evolution, which worships the created world instead of the One Who created it.
Today, the laboratories of intelligentsia are deeply preoccupied with scaling the dimensional wall, once again. They are on the verge of penetrating the veil that lies between the earth and the invisible heavens.
There is now a “science” that envisions the day when it can create worlds of its own. In this century, Newtonian physics was overturned by Albert Einstein, whose desire to learn the secrets of light led him into a quest to understand the nature of matter and the dimensions.
In 1925, physicists like Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrodinger and others, questioned the very nature of matter and the material universe. Their new pursuit, dubbed quantum mechanics, was a comprehensive system that chipped away at the secrets of the atom.
The subatomic world, they discovered, is bizarre, indeed. In this world, forces are expressed as tiny packages of energy, called quanta. These quanta, depending upon their descriptions, create different forces.
Their velocity and position determine the exact nature of the force. However, Heisenberg mathematically proved that one could never know both the velocity and position of an energy packet at the same time. This “uncertainty principle,” as it was called, means that the description of matter and energy must be expressed as a probability!
Simple creation along an understandable timeline is done away with in the stroke of a mathematical pen. Certainty gives way to probability along an unlimited series of timelines.
Used in conjunction with these theories, “atom smashers” systematically confirmed the existence of tiny particles. Among many others, they were dubbed “electrons,” “neutrinos,” “muons,” “quarks,” and so on.
But that was only the beginning. Quantum mechanics also told of a series of multiple universes, lying just beyond the veil of human vision. Theoretically, there are at least ten of them, just waiting to be reached by men with the right combination of skill and the ability to harness the huge amount of energy necessary for the climb.
The repercussions of this theory have already revolutionized our technology. But surprisingly, they have also revolutionized our view of the very world in which we live. Now, science sees a multi-dimensional universe. Most of it is beyond our vision. But if they have their way, it won’t be for long.
The mathematician, Dr. Michio Kaku, has written a book called, Hyperspace — A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps and the 10th Dimension. As the title suggests, the current view of reality is now seen by science as only a thin illusion that masks an upside-down and backward world in which the dimensional veil can be penetrated.
The intricacies of these new theories have caused men to question Creation, itself. The traditional ideas of a “prime mover” and “first cause,” are supposedly outmoded by the view of a multi-tiered universe where probability reigns, and where the last may paradoxically come before the first.
Concerning the effect of quantum mechanics, he writes, “Similarly, quantum theory gave birth to the science of subatomic particles and helped fuel the current revolution in electronics. The transistor — the linchpin of modern society — is a purely quantum-mechanical device. Equally profound was the impact that the Heisenberg ‘Uncertainty Principle’ has had on the debate over free will and determinism, affecting religious dogma on the role of sin and redemption for the Church. Both the Catholic Church and the Presbyterian Church, with a large ideological stake in the outcome of this controversy over predestination, have been affected by this debate over quantum mechanics. Although the implications of the ten-dimensional theory are still unclear, we ultimately expect that the revolution now germinating in the world of physics will have a similar far-reaching impact once the theory becomes accessible to the average person.”
Because the new science sees the world as a series of probabilities and paradoxes, Kaku says that some see a “new theology based upon mathematics.” In it, “The faith in an all-powerful God is now replaced by faith in quantum theory and general relativity.”To these new mathematicians, the universe is without cause, endlessly cycling like a loop of movie film playing over and over again. One can almost feel the hopelessness, which results from open-ended discoveries like these. On the one hand, they provide high-tech advancements that mark our modern society. However, on the other hand, they create a senseless and causeless universe, in which nothing conforms to common sense. Their remedy is to persevere, as if by climbing higher on the theoretical ladder, they will be able to see something that gives them hope.
In this dark picture lies a real truth: There is, indeed, a multiplicity of dimensions, but only the Lord can make sense of them. The Apostle Paul wrote that our real adversaries are invisible, though quite real.
They are the “principalities … powers, … rulers of darkness of this world,” mentioned in Ephesians 6:12. They are as real as you or me, but concealed beyond a time/space veil.
In the biblical sense, the transition through this dimensional wall is quite real. For example, when Stephen preached to a synagogue, which opposed him, he so enraged the crowd, that they could not restrain themselves. They rushed upon him, dragged him outside the gate of the city and stoned him to death. As Stephen stood before his enemies, he suddenly revealed a startling truth about the nearness of the Kingdom of Heaven:
“54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. 55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God” (Acts 7:54-56).
For Stephen, heaven was not a faraway place. He was able to see — as through a window — a view of heaven and the throne of God. Was this just a “vision,” in the classic sense? Was it a “real” view, or an “imagined” view? Since he was about to go there, it would seem that like so many dying people, the restriction upon his vision was lifted, and he was able to see heaven. Distance was not the issue. Rather, it was a question of clarity. Heaven was nearby, as we gauge distance.
There is another case in which the dimensional veil is temporarily lifted. It involves the story in which the king of Syria laid siege to Israel. In this event, Elisha and his servant found themselves surrounded by an enormous armed cavalry:
“15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? 16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha” (II Kings 6:15-17).
Here, Elisha’s servant had his eyes opened in a magnificent way. Suddenly — through the power of the Lord — he was able to see through some sort of dimensional barrier. There, he saw an angelic host surrounding them. This was no vision in the classic sense. Rather, it was the lifting of a dimensional veil that prevents human eyes from seeing the other side.
It is this veil that men of science wish to penetrate today. If it is done in the power of the Lord, all is well. God has often allowed His prophets and servants to see past the barrier of time and space. However, if it is done in cooperation with dark forces, as in the days of Noah, it is unlawful and will result in corruption and idolatry, at the very least. Today, theoreticians are attempting to scale the dimensional wall that separates them from the other side. There, they believe they will find the power to elevate themselves to a new level of civilization. But as we have already seen, what they will find there will destroy them, just as it did before.
DARK FORCES FROM THE OTHER SIDE
But there is another side to this story. As we have seen in other studies, the fallen angels and their demonic cohorts are making their own efforts to penetrate the veil that separates this world from the unseen spirit world.
Throughout the history of mankind, there are records of demonic appearances. Sometimes they appear as shadowy figures. At other times, they arrive in bizarre flying ships. The ancients called them “flying shields,” or “flying globes.” Sometimes, they were referred to as “fiery chariots,” or other language that would have personal meaning to the culture of the day. A hundred years ago, they appeared as “airships,” evocative of early aerial experiments of the day. In the late forties, they began to be seen in their modern form, the infamous “flying saucers.” Their forms can vary. Sometimes, they are cigar-shaped or triangular; sometimes, they appear as globes or clusters of light. But thousands of observers agree on one fact: these “machines” are capable of appearing and disappearing in the twinkling of an eye.Sometimes, they fade gradually, then fade back in again in another location.
In a few words, they appear to have mastered interdimensional travel.This is exactly what today’s scientists are attempting, and may already have accomplished. In other words, the illegal concourse between the heavenly dimension and this earthly world is being scaled by evil forces from both sides. The evil men of this world are making it a top priority to crack the hyperdimensional code. They characterize this effort as a matter of summoning up enough energy to break through to the other side.
However, there is much evidence in the form of written records that since the infamous “Roswell Incident” of July 1947, top government officials have been in contact with so-called “extraterrestrials.” Curiously, although they are called extraterrestrials, they exhibit the same characteristics as the demons of ancient lore.
The Greeks, who called them “daimonia,” from which we get our term, “demon,” regarded them as an immaterial race of people who lived just beyond the reach of man’s vision. However, upon occasion they could make themselves palpable, walking among men until they had completed their business. They were regarded as friends, who could actually bring blessings to mankind.
The Bible names them as the degenerate offspring of some ancient iniquity. They are loyal to their dark masters, the “principalities,” and the “powers” that lay beyond the veil. Traffic with them is strictly forbidden, as given in Deuteronomy 18:9-12, in which the Lord instructed the Israelites to avoid any contact with those dark forces that lay beyond the dimensional barrier:
“9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee” (De. 18:9-12).
This restriction clearly states that dealings with powers beyond the pale are strictly forbidden. This restriction is still in force.But modern science, under the auspices of certain political forces and the military, are deeply engaged in forging lines of communication in this forbidden area.
Their dealings with “extraterrestrials” (the “X-men”) may well be better characterized as dealing with “ultraterrestrials.” Rather than coming from some other place in the galaxy, they come from right here, on another dimensional plane.
Both the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament Apostles believed in spirit beings, both good and evil. The power of Heaven must be approached carefully: through the Lord Jesus Christ, or not at all.
Jesus said that in the days of His Coming to judge the world, it would be as in the days of Noah. And so it is. If one has eyes to see it, this metaphoric “Tower” is being built again, with all possible haste.
So the spirits are campaigning once again. As people turn their back on GOD, they look for somewhere else to connect, there is an empty spot inside them they are looking to fill. The propaganda is everywhere to turn you off of GOD to convince you that you don’t need HIM.
2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Just as they did in the days of the Tower of Babel, people will look for anything to worship except GOD. So many are turning to NATURE and becoming one with the CREATION.
They claim your fears are what keep you from becoming one and then they fill you with fear about the environment even as they destroy it. Climate Change is a totally man made phenomenon. One that you cannot do anything to impact dramatically. It is a tool that they are using to bring you back to the Pagan Religion of Pantheism, where you worship the creation instead of the creator. Something GOD clearly warned about.
God’s Wrath against Sin
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19For what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images of mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity for the dishonoring of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is forever worthy of praise! Amen. Romans 1:18-25
The scientists responsible for the “doomsday clock” moved it 30 seconds closer to midnight – the symbolic point of total catastrophe for humanity and the planet – at the beginning of 2018. The minute hand now hovers ominously at two minutes to 12, the closest point it has ever been (matching the previous peak of 1953 – the height of the Cold War).
This judgement is a reflection of the multiple threats we face as a species, the most urgent being nuclear war and climate change. The former has loomed over humanity for decades. But the latter emergency has only become apparent relatively recently (to the extent that some people and powers even deny that it is a problem). Yet the scientific consensus is clear and alarming. Unless we manage to limit global warming this century to 2°C, then we are in devastating, civilisation threatening trouble.
We’ll need many things to help combat this emergency: technological innovation and scientific and engineering advances which allow us to harness renewable energies. It will also require new patterns of working and living in more sustainable ways. And I think we will also need something that is both subtler and yet perhaps more profound than these revolutions: a new vision of nature itself.
Over the past few centuries, various perspectives on nature have dominated public discourse – generally to the detriment of the environment. The first is the view that humankind has “dominion” over the Earth – that we rule over the planet in some consequential sense. This in itself is not necessarily problematic. It is conceivable that this could be aligned with an ethos of responsible and careful stewardship. But this “dominion” perspective has been widely allied with a mechanistic view of nature that views it as devoid of any intrinsic worth, identity, and purpose beyond its instrumental value to human beings.
The result is a dominant ideology which regards the natural world primarily as a resource that humans are free to plunder at will. This perspective has surely played a pivotal role in our planetary emergency.
But although much damage has already been done, I still believe we could redeem ourselves and set our relationship on a better path if we could develop an alternative vision – of which many can be found across human history and culture.
I’ve recently encountered a wealth of these through my research, which focuses on “untranslatable” words which relate to well-being. Such words are significant, as they represent ideas and practices which have been overlooked or under-appreciated in one’s own culture or time period, but have been recognised by another culture or era. These include visions of nature which have long been neglected in favour of the dominant ideology outlined above. A case in point is the idea of “natura naturans”.
Albert Einstein was once asked whether he believed in God, and replied: “I believe in Spinoza’s God, who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists – not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.”
Baruch Spinoza, born in Amsterdam in 1632, was a pioneer of rationalism and helped lay the foundations for the Enlightenment. He was a controversial figure in his day – with his works placed on the Catholic Church’s List of Prohibited Books – mainly because he was accused by critics of promulgating atheism.
But his philosophy was more nuanced than simply being a direct rejection of the sacred. Rather, he is now seen as one of the first modern advocates of a perspective known as pantheism. This is the idea that God and the cosmos are indivisible – one and the same. To explain this idea, he deployed the Latin phrase “natura naturans” – nature naturing. God is the dynamic process and manifestation of creation itself, nature unfurling in all its glory. (and there you go, worshiping the CREATION in place of the CREATOR)
Since then, many thinkers have aligned themselves with a pantheistic perspective, even if many have dispensed with the notion of a theistic deity. In this modern sense of the term, the cosmos itself is regarded as sacred (as GOD) or precious in some way, as per Einstein’s reference to “the orderly harmony of what exists”.
Many contemporary scientists and philosophers share this view. They may not believe in God, per se, but the awe the universe inspires in them does appear to come close to religious devotion. For instance, the prominent atheist Richard Dawkins has spoken approvingly of “Einstein’s God”, which he describes as “the laws of nature which are so deeply mysterious that they inspire a feeling of reverence”. (reverence is worship)
This vision of nature as sacred – which seems to have the potential to appeal to all people, religious and nonreligious alike – may be just what is needed if we are to preserve this planet, our one and only home in the cosmos. (so, they think it is easier for people to worship the creation than a creator who is an entity which is entitled as creator to make the laws.)
Sadly what people do not understand about Pantheism is that to the Pantheist human life is no more valuable than the life of an ant or a rock or a weed. Therefore, if you are determined to be a nueisance for any reason there is nothing wrong with taking you out. So, if a woman doesn’t want a baby right now and finds herself with children, she can kill them. If the government decides that old people are too much of a drain on society, than can commit mass murder. IF you are found to be polluting the planet disproportionately, you can be removed.
Pantheism is not the only pagan religion that is being touted as the answer to today’s progressive, postmodern era. Many chose not to limit themselves to earthly things. They prefer to worship the UNIVERSE. Becoming ONE with the universe through yoga, medication, drugs, out of body experiences, and contact with alien entities. In truth yoga, medication, drugs and out of body experiences ALL open your spirit to interaction with entities. These entities, are not aliens at all. They are part of our earthly realm but no of our dimension though they are able to move through the dimensions, especially when they are invited by humans.
I believe that EVERYTHING connected to computers is connected to demonic entities. Apparently so do the creators of the various aspect of computer, seeing as they most often name related items and inventions with the names of ancient gods/goddesses.
As the demonic forces have been building their control over the human race through media and computers, they have been steering the world constantly closer to merging humanity with the technology. Why? Because as I said the demons inhabit the technology, they want to MERGE with humans, because they know that when they accomplish that NO HUMAN who merges with them can be redeemed. They will live forever as slaves of the demons.
So they are working to make genetic manipulation and technological enhancements as a positive. They call it SUPER POWERS and are convinced that they have you excited with anticipation, anxiously waiting your chance to be MORE THAN HUMAN.
The SATANISM champagne has been in full force for years now. They are trying to convince you that they don’t serve Satan and don’t even believe in him. DON’T You buy that LIE! ACTIONS speak louder than words and their actions ARE SCREAMING AT YOU! Because of ROCK and ROLL it is easy for Satan Worship to be viewed as a gimmick, even a joke or entertainment. DANGEROUS GROUND! Many souls have been lost to Satan because of this very fact.
Transhumanism can’t escape the fact that it has religious undertones. The core of the movement involves a desire to overcome death, which inevitably aligns with religious worldviews. So, no one should be too shocked that religious organizations are starting to become attracted to transhumanism. But for secular futurists, who want transhumanism to hold strong as a science-based movement, the religious undertones are a problem.
One solution is to just ignore the religious undertones and carry on promoting advancements in science and technology. This seems reasonable. Many transhumanists, I’m sure, take this view by default. But there is one downside, in that this approach inevitably allows religious groups to control the narrative over the mythical and spiritual aspects that are inherent to the movement.
Arguably a better solution is to thoughtfully incorporate the symbolic language of religion into transhumanism while adhering to a strict code of rationality. This approach would not only thwart the agenda of faith-based transhumanists, but would also help the transhumanist movement embrace the long history of pagan mythology and esotericism that led up to modern transhumanism. It turns out, this project of embracing ancient symbolism while maintaining a fully science-based view of the world has already been assembled. It’s called Satanism.
Satanism isn’t a monolith, but in general it is a modern, nontheistic movement that’s simultaneously pro-science and pro-symbolism. The symbolic aspects of Satanism, even when employed ironically, are effective at tying modern human dilemmas to ancient myths and eternal snippets of wisdom. This is especially true for The Satanic Temple, which has recently become the most visible satanic organization in America. The Satanic Temple leans heavily on symbolism while staying grounded in a science-based worldview and promoting tangible human rights activism.
Now consider the God-fearing transhumanist movement. The organization known as Christian Transhumanists has adopted the slogan “The Future of Faith?” Apparently, the idea is that transhumanism could somehow help Christianity do “faith” better. Or is it that transhumanism would help “faith” do Christianity better? In either case, it’s a ridiculous idea. Nothing science-based has ever assisted Christianity at its cause. Science has cut against the foundations of Christianity since the time of Galileo. There’s no reason to doubt that the transhumanist age of science will only further erode the Christian belief system. This renders the very idea of Christian transhumanism fairly ridiculous. (THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CHRISTIAN TRANSHUMANISM! No One who KNOWS GOD will alter their body in that way!)
At first glance, it might sound equally ridiculous to pair Satanism with transhumanism, but for one fact: Transhumanism has always been a little occultish, even a little satanic. The modern movement didn’t just spring up out of nowhere. It’s tied to a long history of thinkers with one foot in science and philosophy, one foot in spirituality, esotericism, or occultism. Considering this past, it might actually be worth considering: is Satanic transhumanism the future of reason?
The “Satanic” Roots of Transhumanism
The roots of transhumanism go back as far as Zoroaster, the ancient Persian spiritual leader who lived sometime around 1000 BC.According to scholar Jason Reza Jorjani, Zoroaster placed emphasis on “humanity’s integral role in cosmic history.” Rather than an omnipotent God determining history, humanity “is tasked with … choosing this evolutionary creative force and actively bringing about the end of history.”
Several hundred years later, the myth of Prometheus by Hesiod (8th century BC) and Plato (4th century BC) depicted many of the themes central to transhumanism.Prometheus helped humanity by stealing fire, wisdom, and other technologies from the gods. Similarly: “Transhumanists believe that we can and should take control of our nature, and cross our ‘natural boundaries,’” writes Trijsje Franssen in Prometheus Redivivus, “for it will make us become healthier, more intelligent, prettier, and happier.” When scientists talk about helping humanity overcome natural human ailments and shortcomings, they are channeling the myth of Prometheus.
In modern times, several prominent transhumanists have explicitly linked occult practices to their transhumanist goals. For example, Jack Parson, founder of America’s rocket program, was deeply involved in the occult religion Thelema. Parsons had a distinct vision for bringing about the next step in evolution for humanity. He described his vision in occultish terms, but his goals directly aligned with transhumanism.
The Future of Reason
If you take one glance at The Satanic Temple’s website, you realize they’re not shy about promoting clichéd satanic symbols. Images of Baphomet, hexagons, skulls… Although there is some humor and shock value to these images, The Satanic Temple fully embraces Satan as a symbolic champion of reason and an antagonist of superstition. Their website explains:
“Satan is a symbol of the Eternal Rebel in opposition to arbitrary authority, forever defending personal sovereignty even in the face of insurmountable odds. … Satanism provides all that a religion should be without a compulsory attachment to untenable items of faith-based belief. It provides a narrative structure by which we contextualize our lives and works. It also provides a body of symbolism and religious practice — a sense of identity, culture, community, and shared values.” (Sounds just like the snake in the garden to me. Always trying to convince man that they will be so much better without that mean old God who just wants to spoil their fun.)
Max More, a leader in the transhumanist movement, understood this completely. In his essay “In Praise of the Devil,” he writes: “The Devil — Lucifer — is a force for good. … Lucifer is the embodiment of reason, of intelligence, of critical thought. He stands against the dogma of God and all other dogmas. He stands for the exploration of new ideas and new perspectives in the pursuit of truth.”
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.
The name “ Lucifer” means “light-bringer,” which, More says, “should begin to clue us in to his symbolic importance.” To More, the fictional character of Lucifer doesn’t just represent a symbolic force for good, but is also a force for rationality, the virtue of pleasure, and the virtue of selfishness. (To funny, these guys are a trip, virtue of pleasure?? The virtue of SELFISHNESS? Two of mankinds biggest weaknesses, which lead to the majority of evil deeds) Also, unlike God, who insists that we achieve redemption through faith and obedience, Lucifer encourages us to take personal responsibility for our fate. (Master of your own fate. in other words, in no need of GOD or saving. Foolish humans don’t realize that puts them at the mercy of DEMONS!)
Together, transhumanism and Satanism have much to offer our culture, which is entrenched with pessimism and dogmatism. By embracing transhumanism, which ultimately seeks to move beyond biological shortcomings and overcome death, we can become more hopeful and optimistic for the future of humanity. And by embracing the general tenets and symbolic lessons from Satanism, we can abandon the superstitions and ignorance-based dogmas of the past. (Satan and his demons know full well that yes, you will overcome death without GOD… which means you will LIVE FOREVER IN HELL! When God removed us from the Garden, it was to prevent man from eating of the tree of Life and ending up living forever in their SINFUL STATE! It was GOD’s mercy. TRUST ME, you do not want to live forever with SATAN!)
Consider Tenet Five from the Satanic Temple: “Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.”
There is, perhaps, no better instruction for living a life of reason. Combine this with the transhumanist agenda, and you very well might have the recipe for the future of reason. Should you also adopt the symbolism of Satanism and embrace full-on “Satanic transhumanism”? I can’t imagine that this is a necessary advancement to the transhumanist movement, but it makes a hell of a lot more sense than Christian transhumanism. (This is indeed the future of “REASON” MAN’S REASON. Because man without GOD cannot understand the world he sees, let alone the unseen. MAN without GOD cannot RECEIVE TRUTH!)
Transhumanism, RFID Chips, Medical implants, Vaccines, are all about SATAN gaining access to your body 24/7. Satan wants to be like GOD. He wants everything that belongs to God. He counterfeits EVERYTHING that God does. He is not happy to just control you… HE WANTS TO BE IN YOU! Access everything about you 24/7. The internal workings of your body, your mind and your spirit. pacer
There is an aspect of this Coronavirus that I have not covered and I want to add it here. That is the MASKs!
If you don’t understand the spiritual significance of a mask, you need to research it, you can start with my article on the RED NOSE DAY.
SATAN HATES US… because we are made in the image of GOD! He wants to strike that image in every way possible. When you put on a mask, that is a rejection of GOD’s Image in you. You unite with SATAN when you wear a mask of any kind. It is a LIE, and HE is a LIAR and the FATHER OF LIES. When you hide or conceal your true identity or your true purpose, you are a child of Satan, by choice. He got a lot of people to don a the red nose of a clown for RED NOSE DAY. The Red Nose is a symbol of the CLOWN, and the Clown is a symbol of Satan. Too much to cover here. Check out my like above. With this COVID 19, he has the ENTIRE WORLD wearing masks until further notice.
SATAN cannot CREATE, he can only PERVERT and COPY. But he is feverishly working on finding a way to CREATE SOMETHING FROM NOTHING:s
Just as it was in the days of NOAH! So it is TODAY! We are so close to the end of this chapter of WORLD HISTORY. IT is not the end of the world. Just the end of the world as we know it. TRIBULATION is right at the door. Will you be here to suffer the horrors of those days? Or will be you saved/DELIVERED by the precious blood of JESUS CHRIST.
Yes, GOD’s children are called to ONE to be united by LOVE. Without GOD, there is no love. They should know you are CHRISTIAN by your love one for another. BUT, we are not all GOD’s children. There is no fellowship between the children of Demons and the Children of GOD. There are two bloodlines. Children of GOD and Children of Satan. DO NOT BE DECEIVED. WE ARE NOT ALL ONE. NO we are not ONE WITH NATURE, or THE UNIVERSE, or AI! We are one with GOD. IF you choose to be ONE with demonic entities, than you will suffer their fate for eternity.
The following video is extremely helpful. It will make clear to you what they are doing with the vaccines. I pray that you will watch it to the end. It is full of excellent information.

It is the desire of GOD’s heart to be one with his children. If you Love GOD, you will never find a more wonderful blessing than to be ONE with the CREATOR of ALL THINGS! Satan may be ruling the earth right now, and able to offer you temporary pleasures, however HIS TIME IS SHORT and HE KNOWS IT. HE is going down, and the desire of his evil heart is to take you with HIM! To torment you for eternity in the fires of HELL!
God is calling you to be one with one another and ultimately ONE WITH HIM! If there is love in your heart, he put it there. If there is any good in your, or in your life, HE PUT IT THERE! DON’t be and IDIOT and turn your back on HIM!
It is the desire of God’s Heart that we become one with HIM!
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. John 17:21
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Ephesians 1
