The Rochester, NY landmark "Clock of Nations" sits at the airport in the context of some highly symbolic and supernaturally potent occult objects. Because it's situation is supposed to be temporary one might argue that it doesn't really belong there, but it does. When you consider what's being presented in the next few posts I think you'll agree. Beyond the 2012 signaling discussed in part 13, researching this timepiece turns up some interesting findings (and one that's really bizarre) that suggests it funtions as a legacy portal, working spells of witchcraft in conjunction with those of the Nephilim gateway portal, and, of course, the High Falls gateway portal.
I mentioned in an earlier post that this clock is a landmark timepiece that's been relocated here from its former home in the very heart of Rochester. I remember watching the "Clock of the Nations" at Midtown Plaza as a boy. It seemed curious and creepy. It features animated marionettes, which I always find creepy. Plus, I was a small town boy on a rare trip to the big city, which of itself was always rather intimidating and creepy. It's that former home, Midtown Plaza, that is the real focus of this post so the meaningful context is known.
I discovered an excellent resource to present here that will provide a vivid witness - a vintage promotional movie. Before you watch it I want to prepare you. In this series I've presented Rochester, NY as a model Babylon, the second largest economy in the Empire State with indications of supernatural ties to the first, and as a city ruled over by Hermes, the god of commerce who mazes the eyes with his magick wand. I recommend being caught up on reading this series and also taking a moment to read Revelation 17 and 18 at least once before you watch the video. (For "extra credit," spend a few hours/months considering Revelation 17 & 18 - An interactive presentation of its thematic structure, one of my pet projects. )
One last thing. If you have fond memories of the clock, continuing here will probably ruin it for you. If you think I'm going to apologize for that, no, there will be no apology for interrupting spells of enchantment. Being grounded in reality and discipled by the Truth who sets us free indeed is always best!
In some contexts, the embedded video below might not appear. You can always use this link Midtown Plaza Mall (1963) to launch it on YouTube.
There it is! Rochester, NY and its featured Midtown Plaza with its featured "Clock of Nations" - the pride of Babylon! I've dedicated a few posts already to the Rochester-as-Babylon theme, and the Jam Handy production really gives that some emphasis. I'm still shaking my head. Wow. Did you notice how the presentation featured the "Clock of Nations" as its centerpiece?
This wasn't hidden away as Rochester's little secret. The launch of this model marketplace with its "fabled timepiece" was news on the national and even international level. The following excerpt from the current Wikipedia entry suggests how important this particular marketplace was in the advancement of the great city Babylon.
"Designed by Victor Gruen, Midtown Plaza was dedicated on April 10, 1962 as the first downtown indoor mall in the United States. The first enclosed shopping center had been Southdale Center in suburban Minneapolis in 1956, also designed by Gruen. The idea for this mall started with discussions between Gilbert J.C. McCurdy, owner of the McCurdy's department stores and Maurice F. Forman, owner of the B. Forman Co. department stores. At that time strip plazas were growing in popularity. Though both owners had opened branch stores they were concerned about Downtown Rochester's viability and came up with the idea of an indoor shopping center. Gruen was at the height of his influence when Midtown was completed and the project attracted international attention, including a nationally televised feature report on NBC-TV's Huntley-Brinkley newscast the night of its opening in April 1962. City officials and planners from around the globe came to see Gruen's solution to the mid-century urban crisis. Midtown won several design awards." (Midtown Plaza (Rochester) Wikipedia)
It's not just commerce itself but commerce in the city center as the focus of popular attention that's being highlighted here. In the promotional movie, the Wikipedia page and other articles and blogs, we're drawn in by the language and tone without pause to consider whether or not a "solution to the mid-century urban crisis" should have been desired. If folks want to leave a city to shop or eat or work or play, is that really a bad thing? Who is so concerned about keeping people and their commerce in the heart of the city, and why?
I submit to you that Satan cares about keeping people in the city. He herds men together in cities to rebel against the true and living God. His monuments and high places and seats of power are generally found in the dense population centers. The main Mystery Babylon identity is that of a great merchant city filled with music, industry and enchantments.
21) And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22) And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23) And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Satan has legal domains of authority in the earth, with places like Rochester, NY staffed by high ranking authorities. He has magical inducements and portals established in key locations exerting powerful controlling influence. He's not stupid. Have you seen what you've been looking at in these posts? He leverages his investments in densely populated and well traveled areas. He camps at the crossroads of commerce to entice, ensnare and enslave.
The first occurance of the word "city" in the Bible is found in Genesis chapter 4.
16) And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
17) And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
Cain, conceived in the Garden of Eden of the serpent tree, slew Adam's first-born Abel. Then, he was marked by God and, departing from His presence, built the first city. How likely is it that the result of his effort was a good thing? Check the further biblical record. The next occurrence is found in chapter 10.
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.
11) Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
12) And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
Do you understand about Nimrod? He began to be a "mighty one", a "gibbowr" in the earth. This is the same word translated "mighty" in verse 9 and "mighty men" in Genesis 6:4.
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.
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.
When the true God does a city (ie. the New Jerusalem) that's going to be very good. Until then, merchant cities are going to make merchandise of men. The serpent tree agenda motivates those who concern themselves with such as a "solution to the mid-century urban crisis." Recognize the sales pitch of the hawkers who are really after your soul. Don't buy in to their scheme! The urban centers of commerce are the control centers for the great city Babylon. If this offends you, it must be said that the work of taking people out of Babylon is secondary to the work of taking Babylon out of people. Every knee shall bow..., so let's just do it now.
When you watched the promotional movie from 1963, did you make note of the sponsor? "Sponsored by ROCHESTER GAS AND ELECTRIC CORPORATION As a Public Service to the Community" There's a parable here in that the promotion of the great city Babylon is sponsored by a utility, a power company. It is a power merchant. RG&E supplies power to the city like the blood stream supplies life to the cells of the body. In severe winter weather, this utility literally controls the city, having the power of life over its dependent residents. Some of you know there is more to the public utility concern than meets the eye.
While putting this post together I came across this image of the Midtown Plaza sign. It says a lot. "OWN" "Come in and get OWNED!" I found the image on "The Moderate Urban Champion" page A Treatise on Midtown Plaza. When I selected some text I unwittingly triggered his secret hidden commerce mechanism, popping up this Babylon 8 page. Cha-ching! (The sound of the cash register as funds are literally transferred from Babylon to his account as a reward for the deceptive delivery of the targeted inducement to buy in to Babylon.) Hmmmmm. Is there a message here somewhere?
What's that? The clock? Oh, yeah - getting to that. Lord willing.
