The Olympic rings logo testifies of the persistent worship of Satan as Zeus and of his son, Apollo. In this, those who understand the way of historical patterns can, in the present time, see what will be from what has already happened in the past.
That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So there is nothing new under the sun.
The repeating patterns of history can expose important lessons to attentive students as led by the Lord. A key event that will happen in days soon to come is popularly referred to as the abomination of desolation.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
See also Mark 13:14, Daniel 9:27, 11:31, 12:11 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 and 2 Maccabees 6. The events of 167 BC that resulted in the institution of the festival of Hanukkah are related to that infamous abomination. They involved the worship of Zeus and a ruler of the Seleucid Empire known as Antiochus IV Epiphanes. Not long ago it would have seemed silly to suggest that the worship of Zeus might be involved in a key fulfillment of biblical prophecy appointed for the near future. Today, however, considering the rise of Olympism, what Tom Horn and Chris Pinto and others have exposed about the history of America, the Apollo branded Hitler and Obama phenomena and the renewal of Zeus worship in Greece at the ancient sites, it seems rather obvious that the man of lawlessness will be and do as Antiochus IV Epiphanes before him. The Beast will be identified as the son of Zeus, Apollo. "That which has been is that which will be."
On a coin from that era (see image on right), a likeness of Antiochus IV Epiphanes appears on the front with Apollo on the reverse. Here is a foreshadowing type in what is two sides of the same coin, literally. Apollo Hitler - one coin. Apollo Obama - one coin. Ditto the one who was and will be.
In a previous post I made the following comment. "We have to ask whether Baron Pierre de Coubertin's vision is quietly fulfilling Bible prophecy while everyone's attention is turned elsewhere." The answer to that is becoming apparent. While many look now to Islam, or the antichrist features of Roman Catholicism, pagan New Age or Eastern religions, it should be blatantly obvious that there can never be a legitimate melding of all religious people into one of these forms. Could the ancient worship of Zeus that is now being revived be the form of what is to be required? I propose that something rather more like Olympism is far more likely.
In Greece, home of Mt. Olympus and the famous Acropolis above the city of Athens, the worship of Zeus had been officially outlawed since the fourth century AD, due to the influence of popular Christianity (and the decree of Roman Emperor Theodosius). As recently as 2003, some who worshiped the gods of the Acropolis were chased off the premises of the Temple of Hephaestus, just below the Acropolis. An official recognition by the courts was made in 2006 leading to the officially authorized restoration of worship in 2007, at some sites. In January of 2008, a second century temple of Zeus in Athens was used to stage the first ceremony of its kind in the modern era .In August of 2008, exactly one week after the close of the Summer Olympics in Beijing, the Acropolis itself was the site of worship of the ancient gods. The group Ellinais, in their persistent drive to reestablish the worship of the 12 gods of Olympus achieved a milestone success. On the Acropolis, about 200 gathered and prayed and sang hymns to the goddess Athena. While I see this as significant, the scale cannot compare to the multiplied millions who have been rallied to the altars of Olympism.
Tony Blair, during his launch of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation in 2008 made the following statement: "We do not want to engage in a doctrinal inquiry. We do not want to subsume different faiths in some universal faith of the lowest common denominator. We want to show faith in action. We want to produce greater understanding between faiths through encounter. We want people of one faith to be comfortable with those of another because they know what the other truly believes, not what they thought they might believe." What we "truly believe" is continually being molded by Satan's branding agencies and few are able to resist the powerful influence. Tony, with much help, is expanding operations in the US this year. The model he expressed is how Olympism has come to bring those professing followers of many diverse facets of Babylon together. He gets it, like de Coubertin got it, and others like them including Nicolas Roerich, with his work in the East. This is how the Tower of Babel was built under Nimrod's leadership, is it not?
Whether one's god is referred to as the Great Architect of the Universe, Allah, Buddha Maitreya, Osiris, Gaia, Baal, Thor, Athena, G-d, Jehovah, Jesus, or Master Jesus, the coming son of Zeus will be received as The One by all but the elect of God. Satan has no problem being worshiped under many names. When the Beast arrives on the scene, Apollo incarnate will have a face and a name, and worship will be received.
Have you considered how much has to change before the world will look like the last day Babylon when the Beast makes his bold and dramatic appearance on the scene and receives the worship of the inhabitants of the earth? If you perceive in the Olympic rings logo and global acceptance of the Olympic games some momentum towards that end, as I definitely do, you know very little has to change. The time is near at hand my friend. If there are important things you have left undone, the window of opportunity for doing such things is shrinking fast.
I pray you will seek the Lord's mind and heart about what He desires of you and for you in this hour. If you have perceived an urgency in what has been a rather overwhelming outpouring of insight in this blog series (and I sure have), let it speak to you of the urgency of the hour.
