This tradition that Larry started in the American West was the adoption of key elements of a very old ceremonial ritual practiced by the Druidic priesthood of the Celts.
In 1990, Larry's group's activities were banned from the beach, but an invitation came from another group that led to moving the annual event to Nevada's Black Rock Desert.
With the event being moved to Labor Day weekend, the traditional connection with the summer solstice has been traded away, technically, but since America's mainstream culture celebrates Summer sun rites in the season bracketed by the 4th of July and Labor Day weekend, it still works. With this celebration of Summer's final fling enduring for a week they have made another ominous historical link, which I'll explain later.
There is a thread of connection between Burning Man and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury and the “Summer of Love,” 1967 (which is brought out in the documentary I watched called Spark: A Burning Man Story (2013)), and there is an image of the flower children of that era that persists, but that's not what Burning Man really represents. The image of peace & love contrasts one of violence and hatred, a side that tends to be underplayed and overlooked.
On a personal side note, I've got some spiritual heritage from that Summer of Love and what the Lord Himself was doing there. The central figure in a kind of revival was a young man named Lonnie Frisbee, who later became associated with Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel and the Vineyard movement. My link is one I only learned about relatively recently, but some who had been involved in the movement with Lonnie got hooked up with a Pastor from Ohio named Victor Paul Wierwille. He had gone West on what seems to have been a research expedition and recruiting mission. It was his ministry of The Way International that the Lord brought me to in 1980, when signs and wonders were local legend, but more than that, still a present reality. The season of my involvement was kind of a rescue then internship. In hindsight, it represented a side-door entry of sorts into Mystery Babylon that provided insight and experience that has been very beneficial. Much of the benefit, it must be said, has come through the unlearning, in seasons of being found as a student at the Lord's feet.
I've already put the varied signs of Horus worship on exhibit that demonstrate how Burning Man is not just a bunch of innocent fun loving folks who enjoy going out into the desert so they can party without bothering anybody. It's not just a humble gathering of dirt poor free spirits acting like a playful herd of kittens. It's an enterprise with a huge budget, and there is a religious agenda. The 10 guiding principles of Burning Man read like an arrogant fool's 10 commandments. It's a recipe for spiritual disaster.
Lots of prayers were “collected” during the event. This phone booth “Talk to God” schtick illustrates who their god is. That's not Ma Bell, it's the Burning Man symbol - Ben Dover, or John Frum, or Osiris, or [insert favorite sun god alias here]. It was probably a dead line. The collection of prayers was a distinct theme that was apparent in pictures I saw of the Temple of Whollyness. When burned, those prayers ritually ascended as to their god. (counterpart of Revelation 5:8, Psalm 141:1-4, Luke 1:8-13) I have no idea what went on in the cathedral project labeled Photo Chapel, but photos are images, and the building's style was a mystical ecapsulation of Mystery Babylon.
The saucer craft the Burning Man stood upon this year was a triple decker, like the ark Noah built to survive this planet's watery purge. A counter-flood is coming, as I described it before - and soon! That mechanism described below is like one cog in the wheel of the greater supernaturalism bringing that day!
“Within this three-decked vessel participants will encounter the Temple of the Navigator, a shrine that features six hand-operated zoetropes that will function as prayer wheels. These will rehearse what little we know, or believe we know, of John Frum's story.” (2013 ART THEME: CARGO CULT)
The page went on to mention altars, offerings and shrines. The closing statement reads, “Note: the Burning Man organization takes no position on religious beliefs.” Hey, isn't that the same bovine excrement put out by the Freemasons?
There are features of Burning Man that just reek of preparation for the coming Black Awakening, which I believe will be triggered in May of 2014 before even one more Black Rock City mass ritual sacrifice is held. Their not insignificant contribution adds to the sum of Hollywood's, the Olympics' and every other sporting event's organized sun god honoring ceremonies, and the ColorVibe 5k run and....
Sodomite sun worship has always involved human sacrifice. There has been a long season building toward the Black Awakening that has brought an increase of this in mass ritual. You just have to be able to read the symbolism to see the sublayer of human sacrifice. If you still need to see some evidence you probably never read this, Series Links: 2012 London Olympics. With regard to Burning Man, the historical connection to the Druid's method of ritual sacrifice is immediately obvious. They burned people alive in their giant wicker man.
The Wicker Man (1973) is a cult movie in the horror genre that pictures such a sacrifice in modern day. The movie is for a "mature" audience for several reasons, but if the Lord green lights it for you there's plenty of benefit to recommend it. It's a fictional story, but based upon the research I've done and what the Lord has opened to me for insight, much of what's represented is an accurate depiction.
It's an influential movie.
“The Wicker Man is generally well regarded by critics. Film magazine Cinefantastique described it as "The Citizen Kane of horror movies", and during 2004 the magazine Total Film named The Wicker Man the sixth greatest British film of all time. It also won the 1978 Saturn Award for Best Horror Film. A scene from this film was #45 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments. During the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony the film was included as part of a sequence that celebrated British cinema.” (Wikipedia)
The Wickerman Festival celebrates that film with their own burning of a giant wicker man. It's held in Scotland near to where that movie was filmed. They just held their 12th annual arts and music festival, and while it's more similar in character to the Glastonbury Festival than Burning Man, its more of the same Pagan ritual magick. Last year, Scissor Sisters was a featured band, which I've written about here. Shady Love - Ritual Abuse Flaunted as Pop Music Video. Their Shady Love video presents a thinly veiled SRA ritual disembowelment sacrifice in the setting of a middle school theatrical production.
Some may attempt to disconnect Burning Man from the history of the wicker man, but it is what it is. Some even try to minimize the role human sacrifice played in the worship of the feathered serpent form of the sun god. Liars lie and deceivers deceive, but that history just can't be dismissed.
Burning Man has been very closely bound to the San Francisco Cacophony Society since 1990 and the move to the Black Rock Desert.
Research what the San Francisco Cacophony Society is about for yourselves. With all this, you have to read between the lines, like everywhere else. Here's a page with a video you may want to watch, The Tales Of The San Francisco Cacophony Society. That's related to the book and film of that title. The image you see here is from that page, that looks like a pulp science fiction magazine of the kind that inspired / programmed many an impressionable youth. The hand has 6 fingers (2 Samuel 21:20). The eye in it is a Horus emblem. Eyes see and hands do. The “Tales” works are related to a Burning Man documentary from 2009, with trailers here. Trailers - Dust and Illusions (2009) There are links to the full movie, on Vimeo.
When the burning man is sacrificed by fire in Black Rock City, it's the sun god in his glory, yes, and it's also an offering to him that is a symbol of the kind he demands. It represents the living sacrifice of the worshipers, and the literal sacrifice of others. To simply say “it represents” falls far short of what such symbol really is when used in such a ceremonial ritual. I'm not going to suggest that every participant practices human sacrifice, but if you think many of them don't, you're still pretty naive. What Pagans and Illuminated Freemasons and all the SRA cells and those who engage in such as the works of the Cacophony Society do in their service to Horus is what has only ever been done, in the same ways. There is no substitute for ritual sacrifice.
A big event is coming, now not many months away, which the agents of chaos themselves call the Black Awakening. That's going to be a mass ritual sacrifice on a global scale in the most literal sense. When you read about the Black Rock Rangers the official language used is less Park Rangerish than Army Ranger-ish, a special forces group. The bizarre collection of vehicles that cruise the playa are being called Art Cars, but with reference being made to Mad Max by the founders and with the background of the Cacophony Society, the chaos and anarchy of the roving gangs of murderers and rapists of Mad Max in the post-apocalyptic setting has to be kept in mind.
When folks revel in burning such as the mock Wall Street block in effegy, smashing, burning and destroying everything, it's not just a carthitic experience. Some of the constructions go up in smoke as prayers with incense to their god, but others go up more particularly as a curse. That's what the magick circle is for, with the release of the demonic energy carrying the curse into the universe. These destruction rituals are attended with directed anger. These rehearse and role play in symbol but there is in this a vital supernaturalism. What goes on in Black Rock City and at the 50 plus satelite events anticipates the Black Awakening. At least some folks involved are SRA chosen ones, you can bet on that. Their antiBride work as BWBs is generally to bring down to ashes the present order of things, which is a phoenix thing. The Black Awakening is appointed to facilitate the new order by bring this order to ashes, preparing the way for their king Horus to rise. In type, every year the idol is burned to ashes. Every year, he rises again. Sun up. Sun down. Sun up. Sun down.
I note how the August 24th marks the anniversary of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, and this is when many travel and preparations for Burning Man are completed. St. Bartholomew's Day is observed on some Satanic and SRA calendars as a Great Sabbat and Fire festival, and noted as a large herb gathering. Burning Man is very much a fire festival. There is a metaphor biblically and otherwise where herbs represent people. Connect those dots. “The St. Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572 was a targeted group of assassinations, followed by a wave of Roman Catholic mob violence, both directed against the Huguenots (French Calvinist Protestants), during the French Wars of Religion.” (Wikipedia) One or more of those groups worshiped the sun god and acted in his service. What do you know about Catholic assassins - Jesuits, Knights Templar, Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus - and SRA multiples in general with Delta alters?
What ritual like Burning Man does is empower of the sun god's worshipers for engagement in spiritual warfare against the saints. There is what is more general at work and also what is more specific, if the signs are to be believed.
Much more could be written about all this business. A point of the ritual is to raise more demonic energy, harvesting it from the Burning Man partipants and further from all those who give energy to it through the spawned events and even the Internet coverage on regular sites, forums, social media and video sites. There's lots of mind-control programming going on with corrupting influences of many kinds. Here is the typcal weaving together of beast and Illuminati programming symbolism, and reality. Folks role-play in their playa name alter identities.
There is in Burning Man also a testimony of judgement that is being visited on America.
There's a serious focus on sunrise rituals (Have you read Ezekiel 8:16-18 lately?) at Burning Man. It's about the coming of Horus. This is the return of John Frum, in the language of this year's Cargo Cult mythology.
There are layers of symbolism present that parallel Israel in relation to Egypt, revolving around to the desert wilderness where Moses was the lead character. Think Burning Man as the burning bush. The sinful worship of idols in the Exodus 32 account, with Aaron and the golden calf. The 10 principles of Burning Man comparing to the 10 commandments brought down from Sinai. This has a lot to do with the church and judgment on the church for the same sins of Israel in the wilderness.
The ultimate Cargo Cult had to be Israel in the wilderness wandering, who camped in one temporary location after another, following the angelic pillars of smoke by day and fire by night (a “burning man”) around the desert and moving all their stuff every time (the spoils of Egypt) - dissassembling, packing, moving, unpacking, assembling, camping - REPEAT... They never forsook the gods of Egypt in their hearts. Read Acts 7 (42-43) and Amos 5 for some relevant insight.
What I want to close this mini-series with is two passages of scripture. One is from 1 Corinthians, about those children of Israel who left Egypt in the Exodus and how many survived the desert wandering to cross over into the promised land. Excepting those who had been under the age of 20 at the accounting, only two made the cut - Joshua and Caleb. All the others fell in the wilderness. Again, this is an example for FOR US!
Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:11
The other is from Exodus 15.
There He made for them a statute and regulation, and there He tested them. 26 And He said, “ If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.” ~ Exodus 15: 25b-26
