In the news - Aha! That's the agenda! Gordon Brown calls for new group to police global environment issues I propose a theme song for the UN, sung to the tune of r-e-s-p-e-c-t by Aretha Franklin, substituting c-o-n-t-r-o-l. :(
While preparing the previous posting, I sought to understand the meaning of the skeleton pictured on the iPhone of the OsiriX marketing image. The skeleton is a symbol I had been wanting to understand, and too, the more specific image of the skull and crossbones. I shared some of what I learned, and in this post I'll continue. In this series of postings, I'm still going through the NCR.com themes, and, while this isn't directly connected in the sense that there are skeletons evident in any of their five scenes, there are some indirect links, plus, the subject matter is very much in common between them. Most importantly, this apparent diversion comes as directed by the holy spirit. So, here it is!
Occult symbols often have many layers or levels of meaning. Some with esoteric knowledge say there are seven. I don't know about that but there does usually seem to be more than one. I presented the skeleton first as a man without skin covering him up, as man hidden behind the skin; the "occult" man. Then I presented the skeleton man without skin as a reference to when Adam was in the garden of Eden. Without the garment of skin that represented the Lord God's provision of atonement for sin, Adam was in a particularly vulnerable state, a state we're unrelentingly being confronted with as we find ourselves nearing the end of an appointed cycle of time. I believe the basic meaning of the bones of man is death and resurrection.
Many view the skull and skeleton as merely symbolizing death, the end of life and, superficially, it does, as in the familiar associations with poison and the iconic pirate's Jolly Roger. In occult usage, both death and resurrection are signaled, pointing beyond these even to the very god of the dead and the god of resurrection, Osiris. Known also as Apollo, and Shiva, this demonic entity may be identified according to biblical reference as the antichrist beast, "who had the wound of the sword and has come to life" (Revelation 13:14). He counterfeits the one who truly died and lives and who has gained the power of life, Y'shua. His resurrection will not be to the same kind of life Y'shua has. His life will be inferior, and his return from the dead, though real, in essence, a mere reanimation.
The marketing image of the OsiriX iPhone app is really quite obvious in its reference. Freemasons who might be involved in the radiology business have got to be snickering gleefully about the state of affairs in the health care world. Can there be any doubt about what this means? This is the worship of Osiris. His literal presence is being invoked.
Osiris is the primary skeleton identity, the occult man. He is occulted or hidden in the "skull and crossbones" marked crypt seen under the floor of the Freemason's Temple floor. He is the skull itself, the "head" of the body as Christ is the head of the body (Colossians 1:18). The primary image of Osiris on Wikipedia (shown here on the right) shows his flesh colored green, with a caption stating that his green skin symbolizes re-birth. Osiris is the green capstone of the pyramid. The green associated with Osiris is the green of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the procreative "life" of the serpent. Isn't this the reason for the green color of the capstone and indeed the entire Federal Reserve note? This is the ubiquitous object coveted by most and held close to our bodies, on which the Eye of Osiris with the Luciferian illumination hovering ominously above the pyramid is a famously conspicuous element.
In this age of overspreading antichrist delusion that anticipates the coming of Osiris with his life-giving (really anti-death) provision, I have to wonder how much of the "Green" movement is about Mother Earth/Gaia/Isis and how much is about Osiris/Tree of knowledge of good and evil. Hmmmm. Given how those who embrace the Green movement so passionately seem to hate the one true God with one accord, I suspect the green signifies both, and their union with those men and women under their dominion.
As is the occult man, so are the occult men. As the beast, so are those who will receive the mark of the beast. As the genuine, so the counterfeit, after a fashion. The color green is a symbol of life used in the Bible. I'm part of this Green movement. I want to be "all about" His life, the Tree of Life - Y'shua!
The occult man is really that which is hidden, the inner man, which is a subject that involves different kinds of life. One is temporary and animates the physical body for an appointed season. Another is "age-abiding" or eternal. Adam already had one kind breathed into him but eating from the tree of life would have given him another. When Y'shua was born of Mary he had, like the first Adam, been fathered by the Lord God. They had the kind life that is potentially perishable. (Adam's was forfeited due to the consequences of sin. Y'shua's was volunteered as a sinless sacrifice, making full restitution.) When Y'shua was raised from the dead he became the firstfruits of them that rise. He has a kind of life that does not perish!
16) Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
17) For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,
18) while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
The Osiris antichrist conspiracy targets all of what is "you" - body, soul and spirit.
Now, when the earthly body perishes the flesh rots quickly away but the bones last much longer. The bones that remain are an enduring reminder of the life yet to come.
Here's a very relevant account of dry bones coming to life in Ezekiel.
4) Again He said to me, "Prophesy over these bones and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.'
5) Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones, 'Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life.
6) I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the LORD.'"
I'll close this posting with a couple more fascinating and profound things to ponder. There is something about the bones that's based on the anatomy of the man created in the image of God. Behind the occult man of bones is another occult man. Hidden inside the skin is bone and inside the bone is marrow - life! Blood is made in the large bones, and the life of the flesh is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11). Hidden inside the bones is life! Beyond the man with skin you see animated in the flesh is death, visible as the bones man. Beyond the death is the new life in resurrection, represented by the marrow. You see, my friend. Resurrection life is coming, and not just the fakery and cheap substitute presented in the symbolic imagery of the occult. The witness to this promise is in our bodies!
Here's the real "skull," the real "crossbones," the legitimate head of the body and the genuine Lord of resurrection life!
They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.
The serpent is a counterfeiter, yeah? Although the impact of the effort put forth by such as OsiriX will bring loss and ruin, ultimately it is but a shoddy sham. Osiris himself is a miserable and pathetic excuse for a savior. Y'shua rules.
