Part 35 - 2012 London Olympics - The Burning Thorn Bush

The commentator for NBC called the metallic objects composing the Olympic Cauldron, “petals,” but they're really less petals than they are thorns. Specifically, they are rose thorns. The Lord sometimes gives me insight into one thing or another during the morning's waking season, and that's how this insight came to me a day or two after the opening ceremony. It woke me right up! I knew there was something really important the Lord was going to reveal as I searched out why the cauldron was made of rose thorns called petals. What I came to learn is that there is a statement being made, a boast about a substitution of Zeus for Yahweh. That substitution, occurring in the realm of the minds and hearts of men where worship happens, was the intent of the magickal spell cast during the mega ritual involving the cauldron and its lighting. The spell will eventually be augmented by a ritual commissioning, on a global scale. This dispatch of agents will carry out into the world, if I'm reading this right, a curse of death like a Trojan horse, and like seeds. The conspiring Illuminists are very deliberate with everything they do, and wisdom suggests that these symbolic activities are legitimate threats that should be taken very seriously. These things I've noted may witness to some companion activity like the dispersion of a biological agent, as Aaron addressed in earlier posts to this series.

Whew. That's a pretty intense intro. I must say, however, it does suit the subject.

That particular spell which was cast during the opening ceremony is part of a greater work that, in one context, began on Mt. Olympus, when the flame was lit from the sun. Within that context, the flame that lit the cauldron during the opening ceremony will be extinguished during the closing ceremony. (Within the greater context of the flame lit on Mt. Olympus, I suspect the Paralympic Games will have its own cauldron instance, with continuity of the same flame, but I believe the flame aspect of the rose thorn cauldron spell will be completed within the context of the XXX Olympiad.) I believe there are spells on the cauldron itself, and on each of the 204 petal-thorns comprised, and that each thorn magickally receives a transference of dark anointing from the flame. The concentration and flow of dark energy is the essential dynamic in the work accomplished through their Illumined sorcery.

So, why are the copper elements in the form of rose thorns, and why disguise that fact? It will take a little ink to develop this, but typical of the evil genius behind Olympic symbolism, there are multiple layers of meaning. Those behind it disguise the fact that these are rose thorns to conceal the meaning from most folks and reveal it to those who can interpret their occult language. In this way, the object bears a testimony below the threshold of our awareness with evident supernaturalism as the symbol “projects energy.” Energy ~ demonic spirit

“In the world of the occult, many symbols are imbued with power by the magician working in conjunction with the demonic spirit world.”

“To cast a spell is to project energy through a symbol”

From “The Spiral Dance”, by Starhawk, Wiccan, founder of the Covenant of the Goddess

I've pointed out some of the physical evidence at this “crime scene,” drawing attention to the working of witchcraft by identifying the stadium and the ring that was cast in the opening ceremony as magick circles. This Cauldron was lit in the fashion of another magick circle. It is a “charged object,” cursed by magicians working in conjunction with the demonic spirit world.

The cauldron has now been personified because it is now being called by the name, Betty. This lends it a personality, a living dynamic. Like Dr. Frankenstein said, “It's ALIVE!” What I'm thinking is, Betty, like “Bet 'e didn't see that coming.” The layered symbols and rituals suggest this Cauldron is a stealth weapon of mass destruction, magickally.

So, here's what I understand to be the main symbol. When the cauldron was lit, the burning thorns raised up on branches to form a burning thorn bush. You can see from this picture of the Cauldron as it was raising up that it formed a burning thorn bush, low on the ground. This identifies the unique Olympic Cauldron with the account of Exodus 3, where Moses met with God on Mt. Horeb!

Now Moses was pasturing the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed. ~ Exodus 3:1-2

In the Hebrew text, the word used there for “bush” is “cenah,” a word derived from an unused root meaning, to prick. Some versions render it correctly as “thorn bush.” The Cauldron is a thorn bush that burns, and yet the bush is not consumed!

The setting for this scene had just a short while earlier featured shepherds pasturing a flock, remember? This identification of the setting is complemented further by considering the version of Glastonbury Tor that was reproduced in the stadium, with a tree on it that was officially identified as a symbol of the Holy Thorn. This rightly connects to the Bible in most folks' minds because of the legend of Joseph of Arimathea's move to Glastonbury and the thorn tree unique to that locality that was generated from his staff, and this link is exploited to make another connection. The Tor is west of London, as Moses had led his flock to the west side of the wilderness. This all puts us in mind of Mt Horeb, the mountain Moses came to when he discovered a burning thorn bush.

Just before the ceremony, Phil, an astute student of the Bible, shared his thought with me that the tree/bush might burn during the ceremony. That symbolic tree didn't, but an alternate, created for the purpose, did indeed burn, and this has plenty of significance!

This link is very much in keeping with the ZION theme, of building Jerusalem in England's green and pleasant land. William Blake, who wrote the poem that set the main theme of the Opening Ceremony, was also an artist whose work is still popular today. This image is his “Moses and the Burning Bush.” The original may be seen in London's Victoria And Albert Museum.

3 So Moses said, “ I must turn aside now and see this marvelous sight, why the bush is not burned up.” 4 When the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” 5 Then He said, “Do not come near here; remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” 6 He said also, “ I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Then Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. ~ Exodus 3:3-6

The thorn bush itself wasn't holy, but the presence associated with the burning bush was, and so was the ground around it. When the Thorn Bush Cauldron was lit, the folks marveled at the sight of it, but not because it wasn't burned up: A high level ritual was being performed and powerful spells were being cast!

Think about where this fire came from. It was ritually lit from the sun by a high priestess in the Temple of Hera, the wife of Zeus and mother of Apollo. Before it was lit, she prayed: "Apollo, God of the Sun and the idea of the light, send your rays and light this holy torch for the hospitable city of London." Then, after her torch was lit, she prayed again. "Oh Apollo, God of the divine Sun and idea of light you have sent your rays and the sacred torch was lit. Now you, God Deus (Zeus), bless all the peoples of the world with peace and crown those who have mastered the sacred contest." This is the flame that was carried through Greece, then throughout the UK in ceremonial ritual. The flame was highly exalted, passing from bearer to bearer for 70 days. It wound through the green and pleasant land on a carefully planned route that took it within about 95% of the population of the host kingdom, collecting worshipful honor, magickal dark energy, from the masses. The flame was exalted as, at the high point of the opening ceremony, it was transferred to the Cauldron. This fire was sourced from the sun in a manner not very unlike how Prometheus stole fire from the gods. This flame is, by ceremonial magick, the "divine" presence of Apollo and “blessing” of Zeus.

When the fiery presence appeared before us as the thorn bush of Mt Horeb that burned, yet was not consumed, a substitution was made, Zeus for Yahweh! This version of the bush was applauded, accepted, honored and exalted. This is an Unholy Thorn, burning with an Unholy Flame. The divine presence in this burning bush is the angel of the Dark Lord, Satan. The ground around the thorn bush has become unholy ground. Those who witnessed this abomination saw the creation of an idol, a substitute for the representation of the living God, and the boast of it! Zeus worshiping Illuminist sorcerers are probably still rolling on the floor laughing about the mockfest of the opening ceremony and the magick they worked over the spellbound masses.

This abomination was not unprecedented. It compares closely with what happened in Zion's Temple, shortly before the festival of Hanukkah was instituted. We might consider this branched cauldron as an allusion to the Hanukkah menorah, the celebrated symbol of what Jewish legend claims as the miracle of the oil. As I wrote about way back in Part 2 of this series (recommended reading), the Greek regent Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who had sacked Jerusalem in 167 BC, set up an idol of himself as Zeus in Zion's Temple and commanded worship and even sacrifice on the Hellenistic altar! This abomination was later attempted by the Roman Emperor Caligula, then after him, by the Emperor Hadrian, who tried to have the statue of Jupiter Capitolinus installed at the site of the Temple, which had, by that time, been leveled.

The building of Jerusalem in England's green and pleasant land is not a casual goal, and a version of Zion's temple is at the center of that desire. The stadium is a temple where Zeus is worshiped, as openly claimed and further declared in symbolic language on the face of the London Olympic medals. Can this burning thorn bush in London's Olympic Park stadium be dismissed reasonably as not another iteration of the abomination of Antiochus Epiphanes, one aimed squarely at fulfilling prophecy?

...and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:3b-4

This will be fulfilled, but not yet for a few more years. (Will No One Know the Day?) Until that day, it will continue to be modeled in anticipation, and the subject of ritual magick that on some level will resemble the Cauldron lighting but perhaps in scope and power fall short of it. This was a really big deal!

In wrapping up this post, while there's plenty more insight to be gleaned from the Cauldron and its symbolic ritual, I wanted to put an exclamation point on what was declared about the substitution and boast. After the torch was lit, the music played was Pink Floyd's Eclipse, a song chosen by Underworld as presenting the most fitting lyric for the occasion. At the climax, just before the area explodes with a massive fireworks display, we hear the enchanting closing refrain, “All that is now. All that is gone. All that's to come. And everything under the sun is in tune. But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.” The sun is eclipsed by the moon. This echoes what we had just been shown as Satan's boast, what had just been enacted in ceremonial magick. The Bridegroom Sun of Psalm 19:4-6 had just been eclipsed by the moon, the lesser light, Lucifer, Zeus, Apollo. Allah Akbar. The flame of Apollo is now the flame of the burning thorn bush in England's green and pleasant land. Do you get it? Do you grasp the extent of the offense and abomination?

Following that, I perceive yet one more cryptic boast validating that what was witnessed was the magickal installation of a messianic idol. Underworld chose to close with Paul McCartney singing “Hey Jude.” So, Hey Jude. Have you read the book of Jude lately? There's some application to be found here! Hey Jude. Judah? Was it something of an announcement of the successful import of Zion, of the presence of the counterfeit King of Judah? Perhaps. Hey Jude. Judas, the son of perdition, betrayer? I think the main reason for this musical selection is in the song's history, with a focus on John Lennon and his boastful claim of a similar substitution. John had famously declared that The Beatles had become "more popular than Jesus." (August 1966) That claim caused quite a backlash, huge, really. The song that was performed by The Beatles and released in 1968 was written by Paul and John. It was written in the context of a visit Paul made to John when John was going through a divorce, and the situation with John and his son Julian was the inspiration for the song. Hey Jude. Focused on troubling times with John. “...More popular than Jesus,” that caused some trouble.

Lord willing, this will continue in another post, but I wanted to close with the following passage of scripture as an answer to such blasphemy as Underworld's selections. Eclipsed by the moon god? Not for long!

1 “For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,” says the Lord of hosts, “so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.” 2 “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. 3 You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,” says the Lord of hosts. ~ Malachi 4:1-3

  1. Very very fascinating. It's certainly true that what we're looking at here is the application of forces in conscious betrayal to what we might think of as the Divine - but of course, that is Lucifer, whose pride was his downfall.

    I find it amazing that so few people felt what a terrible ritual was enacted right in front of them. I heard someone mutter that the ceremony 'was a little dark', but that was the extent of it.

    Curiously, since you mention songs, the Arctic Monkeys played their hit 'I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor' with the repeated refrain: "I bet that you look good on the dancefloor, Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984, From 1984!" which is clearly a nod at George Orwell's 'Big Brother' society book 1984.

    Also, the cauldron gathers into an eye, where the meaning is rather succinctly depicted here on youtube (49seconds of video):

    Certainly, the whole ritual looks like a perversion, raising the devil or beast as master, and aiming toward a controlled society (even to the point of genetic manipulation). Apologies, long post.
