The Parable of the Snake-bit Champ

During the Pesah last month there were two notable signs, one of which I reported already. When Chelsea Clinton publicly announced her pregnancy it was a model of the reproduction of the anti-bread from heaven. The other sign involves Joseph Herrin, who ministers on the Parables Blog and Heart4God site, and his dog Champ. Champ was bitten by a venomous snake, which Joseph reported the next day by posting the account to his blog with the title, Snake Bite. I wasn't emotionally engaged with the first sign but with the second, I definitely am. There is a sadness. What the sign means will be very unsettling for some of you. It happened on the last day of Hag haMatzot - a day that has great import.

If you haven't been following what I've been writing about 2 Thessalonians 2 and John 13 this parable might not make much sense. You have to understand the series of events unfolding in that rapidly approaching critical hour and what they mean in context. I've been testifying that there has to be more in this for you than a superficial intellectual acknowledgement of possibilities. If that's all you've got, your house is built on sand and the flooding has already begun to expose it. If you can't yet see straight as one who is sober and alert in the bright light of day, what hope do you have for the days to come when night falls hard? This sign will challenge you as a trial of shaking what may be shaken. I urge you to not judge quickly but to give this matter time, taking it all before the Lord until there is a confidence in having His mind and heart because it should not be taken lightly.

The sign pictures Champ as the lawless one, the champion who is snake bit during the Feast. He is Joseph's beast, and Joseph is left behind when the Bride is taken. Trusted as the Parables blogger and interpreter of dark sayings, he fails to discern the sign that is as plain as the nose on his own dog's face. He and those who follow his lead are unaware of their own state of being deceived.

I'm going to give the details of the sign a thorough treatment, according to custom, but more introductory commentary is certainly warranted for context. When I recognized the sign of the snake-bit Champ and began to explore it more deeply, what became apparent to me is how that sign cannot be divorced from what other matters pertain to it. You may have noticed this post is pretty long. There's actually several parables this sign brings to light. At the close of this post you'll find an email I sent to Joseph Herrin in January of 2011, which represents the last personal exchange between he and I.

I don't doubt that some will take what I've written here and dismiss it as the work of “carnal Bob with a personal axe to grind.” All I can really say about that is that you would be negligent if you didn't give that possibility due consideration. We must not be naive and we must have our guard up at all times. If there is in this work a warring after the manner of the flesh like in a petty feud or a public airing of dirty personal laundry, if I am merely reacting to what Joseph has recently done (which I will address shortly) and have been provoked in some way that colors my judgment, such a thing will be exposed and brought into judgment. If my motivation is selfish and represents a seeking to elevate myself or rally you to “my cause,” or, ultimately amounts to just some difference of opinion, well, shame on me. If I write this way to disarm you, to manipulate you according to the manner of my enemies, that will also come into judgment. Does this posting represent a yielding to the influence of those who wield the potent weapons of mind control, who would like nothing better than to divide and conquer the Lord's people? We are accountable to judge rightly about such issues. Pray that we will because there is much at stake.

It has been increasingly on my mind in this present watch season to publish what I'm seeing that is of a critical nature. By “critical,” I don't mean “Inclined to judge severely and find fault” but rather “Characterized by careful, exact evaluation and judgment.” In a season of increasing deception, the level of discernment must also rise, with regard to our own selves in self-reflection, with regard to those around us, and, in perceiving the signs of the times. The gaining of the hearing ear through obedience is an exercise that involves the show of love, through and through, and this makes the most stringent demands.

Three weeks ago I published a post titled, Sign Watch and Status Report 2014, What I Didn't See and What I Do See, offering my assessment of the watch focused on the 13th day of the 1st month, and more than that, what Aaron and I had been witnessing in the church. “Many saints are now being exposed as having built their foundations upon sand, and their faith is failing. In contrast, a few are being strengthened. This widening polarity is the result of judgment.” Those among us who teach are certainly included in that polarization. I submit as supplemental to this post what I've already written in others like these, As Iron Sharpens Iron - 2-27-13 and Excitement and Danger in the Bike Lane - 2-23-13.

While some teach that there must be unity above all else, that lie serves only to invite us all alike into corruption and lawlessness. Some consider that being involved with conflict and division is a bad thing, but my Lord and His disciples frequently met with severe opposition, and the struggle continues unabated. Division existed even within the set of His own chosen twelve. Until this age has passed away there will be both tares amongst the wheat and factions in the Body of Christ.

34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. ~ Matthew 10:34-36

The sword divides, separating the holy from the profane, the worthy from the unworthy, the ripe from the unripe and what may be saved from that which may not.

For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you. ~ 1 Corinthians 11:19

For those of you who look to both Joseph and myself, and to Aaron Hermann with me, for reliable instruction and guidance, there is a definite drawing of lines to be seen in this. It is loyalty that is being tested, and it must be seen that this transcends the men involved. Yet, this surely involves the agents of the Lord's own choosing through whom it has been presented. He is engaging you, dear saint, and as tempting as it might be, I encourage you not to duck it. There are diverging paths before you. We are in a war, a spiritual war. Lines are being drawn like front lines where battles are fiercely waged. When the Black Awakening is triggered, which is now almost upon us, you will be confronted with the reality of it on a level you have possibly never imagined, on many fronts. Again, please give this matter the consideration it is due, and while not judging too quickly there is an urgency in this.

Now, when I first skimmed lightly through Joseph's Snake Bite post I didn't read it like a sign but with natural compassion for a suffering pet and owner. The day after, while I was still in bed waking up, which is a time when the Lord often engages me on matters that require my attention, I knew I had to give it my attention and look at the timing to discover the key to what it means.

His post began, “Yesterday morning, prior to sitting down to begin writing the next chapter in the FOUNDATIONS series, I needed to walk to the mailbox with a sack full of newsletters so they could be delivered to men in prison.” The post was published on Tuesday morning. (22 Apr 2014 10:49 AM PDT). So, the incident happened in the morning of Monday the 21st. That was the 21st day of the 1st month on the Lord's calendar, the last day of the Feast and the day of the year appointed for what I call the Bride Theft. This observation establishes the context of meaning because that day is about the sign for the church of the Body, when the crop of the Lord's barley Bride will be harvested in resurrection out from among them.

From 2 Thessalonians 2 and Matthew 24 and other passages of scripture we are informed about a great delusion that will manifest. At Passover time, Hag haMatzot, a series of closely related events will unfold in the midst of that dark cloaking. If you have come to understand the agents and dynamics involved you should easily recognize the scenario in Joseph's post. The lawless one will be baptized and anointed on the 13th day of the 1st month. The Paschal lamb must be chosen on the 10th day and sacrificed on the 14th, and the 13th is considered a day of preparation. The Feast week begins with the 15th day, and on the 21st day, the last day of the Feast, the Barley crop will be harvested as the Bride is stolen away by her Bridegroom, leaving everyone else behind as an unripe crop remaining in the Lord's harvest field until it too comes to full maturity.

In the opening brief, I wrote that the sign pictures Champ as the lawless one, the champion who is snake bit during the Feast, and that he is Joseph's beast. The antichrist type Goliath was the champion of the Philistines (1 Samuel 17:4).

The venomous snake bite compares to what was modeled during the “last supper” when Jesus dipped the bread and gave it to Judas. After the morsel, Satan entered into him, according to John 13:27. The venom represents the deadly anti-bread from heaven anointing of the Serpent. Quoting from Snake Bite, “The timing of this experience, coming at a time when I am writing about the serpent/Satan in the garden of Eden seemed significant.” The snake-bit Champ swelled from the venom like bread infused with a fast acting leavening agent - a metaphor for sin.

Quoting from Snake Bite, “My immediate thought was to save the life of my dog, for though he is a beast, he is MY beast.” The concern of that coming day will be salvation, quote, “My immediate thought was to save the life...” The lawless one is that beast of Revelation 13:1. I haven't given this feature much ink yet (implicit with a baptism) but the apparent healing of a fatal wound will feature in that day's spectacle.

I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; ~ Revelation 13:3

And so Champ, with a deadly wound to the head, was ministered to with Joseph's miraculous provision of Benadryl (“The thought came clearly into mind to give him some Benadryl. I thought that an odd idea, as the only treatment I had ever heard of for snake bites is anti-venom. ... I “just happened” to have some on hand...”) - “and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;”

This is not much of a stretch, in fact, it's no stretch at all. It simply fits the model.

One of the most vivid prophetic scenarios modeling the Bride Theft is found in Acts 12, where it discloses how it happens on the last day of the Feast. (Passing Through the Iron Gate ) The resurrection is pictured as Peter is visited by an angel while he's in prison. The angel leads him out of prison as out of this physical realm where we are bound by the law of sin and death. This body of flesh we wear today is our prison issue garment, in a figure. Joseph Herrin reported in his opening sentence what he was doing at the time of the incident. “...I needed to walk to the mailbox with a sack full of newsletters so they could be delivered to men in prison.” He was engaged in the work of ministry. In Acts 12, Peter was in prison, representing the church as we are today, but on the 21st day of the month he got an early release. The Bride will be released according to that model, but those who don't qualify will remain behind, prisoners still. According to the interpretation of the sign, who receives Joseph's newsletters? Not the Bride but those who remain in prison. That applies to some among us. Who is recounting on the 22nd day of the month how his Champ was snake-bit during the Feast but Joseph, left behind.

The Benadryl is an important feature of the sign. Quoting Snake Bite, “I found that the Benadryl makes me sleepy, however, so I did not use more than a few of them out of the package.” In the season prior to the incident, Joseph had medicated himself with Benadryl, which made him sleepy because the antihistamine medication works as a sedative. There is a very elegant parallel in Genesis 2, where the First Adam is sedated just before his bride is removed from his body. It's a prophecy about the last Adam when His Bride is being removed from His Body. Joseph was sedated with Benadryl as the Body of Adam is put to sleep.

but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. ~ Genesis 2:20b-22

In a similar prophetic allegory, when praying about the cup in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus alone stayed awake, and His Bride follows that model. He went on to his appointed suffering and death and subsequently was raised in glory. Those who slept did not take that path and they were left behind.

In yet another example of where the sleeping saints are left behind we have the parable of the 10 virgins in Matthew 25. All ten slept. They weren't woken up to be joined to the Bridegroom but were instead invited to the marriage supper. The Bride had already been taken, while they slept.

Quoting Snake Bite, “I had purchased some Benadryl allergy tablets last year to alleviate the symptoms of my pollen allergies.” Benadryl is a H1 receptor antagonist, which means that it blocks a specific type of histamine receptor in the body. It also blocks acetylcholine receptors. Joseph self-medicated with Benadryl for the purpose of blocking his body's receptors, insulating himself from the environment. This receptor blocking and insulation from the environment speaks of the dimming of the eye and dulling of the ear that parallels the metaphor of the sedated sleepy saint.

Here's the sign of Joseph walking to the mailbox on the last day of the Feast with a sack of mail intended to be delivered to men in prison. He was focused on the nice weather and simple pleasures of being with his frolicking companion. As insulated from the harsh realities of the environment, he was dull of senses, unaware of the danger lurking nearby, of the snake in the grass awaiting his pet at the end of his leash. This is the story of Joseph, with snake-bit Champ, left behind.

The meaning of the sign is an explicit warning. One must ask whether it applies to Joseph on a personal level or whether it is to be taken on a corporate level, and the answer is, both. Joseph has been singled out because he is the model. Whether he will be turned from that end I cannot say. What I do know is that the sign is legitimate and the interpretation is reliable. This Joseph and Champ model will manifest.

1 Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 6 so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6

As I wrote when I first declared the meaning of the sign, “Trusted as the Parables blogger and interpreter of dark sayings, he fails to discern the sign that is as plain as the nose on his own dog's face. He and those who follow his lead are unaware of their own state of being deceived.” There is irony in this, where someone who is exalted in an ability fails in that very matter. His slogan is, “Parables, Bringing Hidden Things To Light.” Read Snake Bite, asking the Lord to open to you His own mind and heart. There is no mocking in this, no personal condemnation and no joy in bringing this into the light, but the Lord requires it for your sakes.

Before I venture on there's another side of the sign that has spoken very strongly to Aaron, who is a witness to all I have testified herein. The interpretation is that Champ on his leash represents those who are Joseph's champions, the champions of his cause. Those entrusted into his care are faithful and loyal and happy like a dog frolicking at the end of a long leash. Champ represents Joseph's companions, his advocates and cheerleaders who attend and support him as he walks the path and ministers to the prisoners. What happens suddenly as they go on their way is that they are snake-bit, and of course Champ remains behind with Joseph, accepting of his own medication.

This should speak loudly to you.

Quoting from Snake Bite, “Sometimes I call him “Grasshopper” because of his penchant for bounding around in the tall grass as if his legs were made of springs.” “Grasshopper” is what the master calls his student in Kung Fu, the TV series from the early 70s that starred David Carradine. In that show, the student that the master called Grasshopper was named Caine. No kidding. Are you master Joseph's student, “Grasshopper,” who Champions his cause? Are you going the way of Cain as you're led around?

Quoting from Snake Bite, “As I looked at my dog, observed his swollen face, knowing the sting of the venom he must be experiencing, seeing his doleful countenance, I had only compassion for him. He did not go looking for a snake yesterday morning. He was not looking for trouble, or trying to be a bad dog. He was merely enjoying life, doing what dogs do. The serpent, a subtle, venomous creature, was hiding in the grass waiting to strike the unsuspecting and unwary. My immediate thought was to save the life of my dog, for though he is a beast, he is MY beast. He is under my care, and I am concerned for his welfare.”

Shall we shift the blame to the serpent, who was not looking for trouble but just doing what venomous creatures do? In another quote, “Last year I had killed both a large rattlesnake and a water moccasin on the property, both of which are venomous snakes.” We can't really blame the dog either, but having had two prior encounters on the property, the claim of concern for Champ's welfare being made by the one holding the leash while his dog frolics in the tall grass has to be called into question. It should be apparent that I'm not making this point to suggest the need for SPCA intervention but for your sakes as a parable of his care for his Champions, his Grasshoppers.

Consider this ancient fable.

“Aesop (620–560 BC), a slave and story-teller who lived in Ancient Greece, told a tale called The Ant and the Grasshopper. In this tale, the ant worked hard preparing his shelter and stores of food all summer, while the grasshopper played. When winter came, the ant was prepared, but the grasshopper has no shelter or food. He begs to enter the ant's house, but the ant refuses and the grasshopper starves.” (Wikipedia)

Hey, doesn't Joseph have food stored in the trailer he pulls behind his bus, like the ant in this fable? He has written many posts documenting his own hard work preparing his shelter and stores of food, while Grasshopper played. Think about it. This parable is for you.

Do you think that all these illustrations have such striking parallels because of some cosmic coincidence? These are signs. It is the Parables Blog.

Joseph has written many times over the years that a vehicle is a metaphor for a ministry, and he has interpreted parables about his personal ministry based upon his own vehicles. The parable of Joseph-ant and the Champ-Grasshopper is one of that kind, but he has neglected to interpret that one to you. Were you paying attention when his ministry-motorcycle crashed and he was hurt? Were you paying attention when his ministry-bicycle crashed and he was hurt, while he was being propelled by his beast Champ on Jekyll Island? Joseph reported those incidents and about his losses and injuries and recovery, and that's what I remember about those incidents, not how they were parables of his ministry crashing. When he, himself, is made a sign to you and I, he documents it well, but the account is given a spin instead of being revealed for what it really means. Joseph's spin on the snake bite incident is to present himself as a righteous man, as he quotes from Proverbs.

A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast, but the compassion of the wicked is cruel. ~ Proverbs 12:10

To say that the signs merely suggest the script is flipped would be too soft. These are signs, and the script is flipped.

I don't doubt that some will see this post as a retaliation or personal vendetta. I implore you not to reduce this to the level of petty arguments or differences of opinion. I'm not intending this as a rebuke for Joseph and neither am I crusading to fix the church or dismantle Mystery Babylon the Great. When I call out ministers and other corporate or business entities by name it is never with intent to hinder their operation, except where it involves a small number of you who love the Truth and are learning to see as the Lord sees. I believe this profession is consistent with my practice.

Joseph Herrin is modeling to us on a corporate level those who are referred to as “the head of the house” in Matthew 24.

But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. ~ Matthew 24:43 (See Will No One Know the Day?)

Recently Joseph presented me as a personal adversary, right while I am in the midst of steadfastly proclaiming “at what time of the night the thief [is] coming.” This is very directly related to the sign and must be pursued in connection with it. Quoting again from Snake Bite,The timing of this experience, coming at a time when I am writing about the serpent/Satan in the garden of Eden seemed significant.” This observation certainly is significant because it provides meaning relative to the sign. As I often repeat on this line, the timing is key to understanding things. Joseph had recently published on that subject of the serpent in the garden in a post titled, FOUNDATIONS: The Serpent Seed Doctrine (3-26-14). It's there that I appear as the target in his sights and it's there that we find more insight about the sign.

That post is a lengthy refutation and strong condemnation of what Joseph refers to as the serpent seed doctrine. If you want to condemn something it helps to label it a doctrine or a theory. This “doctrine” is generally inclusive of all claims that Eve was impregnated by the serpent in the Garden of Eden and that she subsequently bore Cain from that union. If you've paid any attention to my blog in recent years you can hardly have missed my frequent reference to and promotion of just that very thing. See Who is Cain's Father? to learn how the truth of it is concealed and revealed according to the way of precious secrets. Joseph Herrin is far from alone in rejecting the naming of the Serpent as Cain's father, but this is his take on it and he is the one modeling the sign to us. Again, he wrote, “The timing of this experience, coming at a time when I am writing about the serpent/Satan in the garden of Eden seemed significant.” He perceived that they are connected but he is blind to the extensive parable in that experience and is possibly blind to his error in rejecting the Nachash as being Cain's father. I say “possibly” here because what he actually knows or doesn't know might not be as it seems.

In the course of Joseph's handling of the material he names some of those who are recognized as advocates of the so-called seed of the serpent doctrine.

“In my ministry I have noted an increase of Christians who have embraced, or are considering, the serpent seed doctrine. William Branham, a Pentecostal minister who was very active in the 1940's up until his death in a car crash in 1965, was one of the better known men who promoted this doctrine. Since Branham’s death, Arnold Murray of Shepherd’s Chapel has become one of the leading advocates of this doctrine. There are additionally, many lesser known teachers of this doctrine, many of whom have websites where this teaching is disseminated. One of these men whom people often mention when writing to me is Bob Schlenker who has The Open Scroll website and blog.”

“What all of these teachings share in common is the belief that the Serpent/Satan/Samael had sexual intercourse with Eve in the Garden of Eden and that shortly thereafter Adam also had sexual intercourse with Eve. She became pregnant by both beings simultaneously, a rare occurrence that is known as heteropaternal superfecundation, and she consequently gave birth to twins. This alters the traditional Biblical narrative significantly, for no longer are Cain and Abel understood to be brothers born consecutively through the union of Adam and Eve. Cain is declared to be the seed of the serpent and Abel the seed of Adam.”

He wrote, “Bob Schlenker who has The Open Scroll website and blog.” Hey, that's me! (Don't tell Zen Garcia that he was left off of the list. He'll be disappointed. ;) ) I seemed to have become an unmentionable persona non grata since the time when Joseph and I last exchanged email in January of 2011, but there I am, back on the radar - as a target. A couple paragraphs later I'm named again, and this is where it starts to get really interesting.

Some with scruples about suggesting that Adam engaged in sex with the serpent being find it expedient to disassociate the act of eating with sex. Others, however, such as Bob Schlenker, teach that after Eve committed gross sexual sin with the serpent that Adam then engaged in anal sex with the same being.

I mentioned how Eve's conception with the Serpent was labeled a doctrine, which is how language is used in the craft of persuasive writing. Here's another technique. What is implied in this construction is easily discovered in the context. “Others, however, such as Bob Schlenker,” becomes “Others, however, without scruples, such as Bob Schlenker.” When you read you have to mentally fill it in, but since he didn't write it in for you he's not doing the actual dirty work. He's requiring you to do it. His hands are clean, technically, and cleaner still because he utilizes a “such as” to buffer me ever so slightly while singling me out. So, what is meant by scruples. Scruple: a moral or ethical consideration that restrains one's behavior and inhibits certain actions. The statement made by naming me in this construction is that my behavior is unrestrained and/or my actions are uninhibited by moral or ethical considerations. That is an example of the form of libel called defamation of character. This is related to slander, but defamation is when libel is written and slander when it is spoken. Joseph then inserts two definitions of “slander” right there in a decorative graphic.

Take a hard look at the graphic. He had just previously identified me as, “Bob Schlenker who has The Open Scroll website and blog.” What is the decorative form of the graphic on which the definitions of “slander” appear? It's an open scroll. It's a subtle association, subliminal or operational below the threshold of consciousness - and very effective. It identifies The Open Scroll with “Slander.” This is a very familiar mind control device of the kind I've been exposing in many hundreds of posts on The Open Scroll Blog, decoding logos and all kinds of Occult media. Occult mind control is as Occult mind control does, it may be said. So, noting that Joseph had just named me in his crafting of a sly defamation of character that required you to identify me as being without scruples, he then embedded a mind control device that created another linking by association, labeling The Open Scroll as “Slander,” which is the vehicle through which I minister. Is there really any plausible deniability here? Alongside this it should be observed how that Joseph has strongly identified me very specifically in this context and that it has all been done with great subtlety. When you see how this develops, you will discover that something equally important has been done in the provision of cover for his action. Instead of the reader giving attention to Joseph's own work of defamation the directional shift is made so the one being victimized immediately becomes the perpetrator. Switch. It becomes all about Bob Schlenker of The Open Scroll, the unscrupulous minister of Slander. Have you ever found yourself being set up and manipulated by a smooth operator? This is how it works.

Joseph continues: “Depending upon whether the individual identifies the serpent in the garden as a beast, or as the cherub known as the devil and Satan, another angel, or a human precursor to Adam, humanity’s first forebears are charged with committing bestiality, or gross immorality with a being of “strange flesh” (Jude 7). This is just one reason that anyone contemplating this doctrine should be very cautious, testing it patiently and with the utmost care. Adam and Eve are actual historical people. They are your forebears and mine. To charge them with gross immorality of the most vile and wicked nature is slanderous if in fact the charges are not true. Yahweh takes a very dim view on slander.

Since Herrin's assertion is that Adam and Eve did not have sexual relations with the Serpent, anyone who claims otherwise is presented as though they have brought a charge against them, slandering them with a damaging false statement. Joseph seems to be acting as the court assigned defense attorney on their behalf, representing God's interests. One can only conclude that I am personally guilty of and most accountable for this slanderous charging of Adam and Eve with gross immorality of the most vile and wicked nature. As to his statement that, “They are your forebears and mine,” that presumes that Adam and Eve are both in our heritage and his, which has certainly not been established because there are tares amongst the wheat and that makes a distinction in heritage.

So, Joseph continues on to include the text of several verses that include the word, “slander,” then writes the following. “The word “devil” in the New Testament is translated from the Greek “diabolos” which means “slanderer.” Slander is of the devil. Everyone who aspires to be found pleasing to God must have no part in it. Can there be a more serious slander than to accuse a man or woman of adultery, bestiality, homosexuality, or some other gross form of immorality when they in fact did not commit such a wicked deed? For this reason, every Christian should tremble at the thought of errantly embracing and disseminating a doctrine that constitutes an egregious form of slander.

Performing the required substitution that must be drawn from the established linking, “slander is of the devil” becomes “The Open Scroll is of the devil.” Behind that is the minister himself, me. That's how it works, folks, it's pretty simple.

But, certainly, the devil is a slanderer and false accuser. Satan is the accuser of the brethren. He is the father of lies. Assuming you see through Joseph's cover, he is the one who committed libel and is operating with subterfuge after the manner of the accuser of the brethren. Joseph seems to boldly assert about Adam and Eve that “they in fact did not commit such a wicked deed,” but really, the construction technically leaves it a little slippery still. Yet, that is his assertion because Joseph finds them not guilty. The truth of the matter is that there was such a sexual engagement in the garden. The Lord Himself revealed that to me and the holy spirit affirms that it is the testimony of the scriptures to those whose eyes and ears are opened. We should neither falsely accuse the innocent nor acquit the guilty. While offering a moral defense of Adam and Eve might appear to some like a sincerely noble effort it's not that at all. It's a tangential maneuvering, allowing for some persuasive sleight of hand. This subject is of enormous consequence in this hour, which speaks to why it is being assaulted by such an agent as Joseph Herrin.

Here's the verses Joseph listed right after setting me up as the slanderer. Swap in the identity of the real false accuser in the context.

You shall not go about as a slanderer among your people...~ Leviticus 19:16

A perverse man spreads strife, and a slanderer separates intimate friends.~ Proverbs 16:28

O Yahweh, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart. He does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor...~ Psalms 15:1-3

You let your mouth loose in evil, and your tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother; You slander your own mother's son.~ Psalms 50:19-20

He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who spreads slander is a fool.~ Proverbs 10:18

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.
~ Mark 7:21-23

These were deftly hung around the neck of the one who was falsely accused, me. I can't really take Joseph's lies or his libelous deeds personally because my own reputation is of no account, and the truth and those who love The Truth will be vindicated in the Lord's own way and time.

Near the end of the post Joseph makes a strong appeal to the reader, and the associations made earlier remain in play.

“Those who defame their first forebears with profane and obscene charges of gross immorality and going after strange flesh are in fact slandering themselves. This is the point that Christ was making to the Jews when He said:

Matthew 23:29-31
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ Consequently you bear witness against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.”

Yikes. Hard words.

Here's a verse to consider as an example of how these situations play out in the end when judgment is brought to bear.

So they hanged Haman on the gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai, and the king’s anger subsided. ~ Esther 7:10

Let's take a step back and take a deep breath, pausing a moment for reflection. One of the more radical ways the Enemy works is to suppress the message by killing the messenger, if not literally then with a character assasination. We have to ask whether Joseph Herrin has slipped out of character in this operation of subterfuge or has now revealed his true colors. This assault has been launched in an hour when suppressing this vital truth that is the basis for the Antichrist reproduction and genetic counter-flood will cause the most damage. I believe the sign of the snake-bit Champ makes it pretty plain. Sleeper agents is as sleeper agents does.

Here's another vehicle-ministry metaphor, where bus-driving Joseph threw me under the bus, as the expression goes. Some would say I'm now throwing Joseph under the bus, and that really deserves a closer look. If you can't still see the difference, there's really nothing here for you. Truth matters. Herrin has recently thrown Tom Horn under the bus, and while I, too, have brought Tom's work out for inspection in the light of day, Herrin's inspection came into a light that brought condemnation of the valuable work Tom should be credited for, the very timely exposure of the Adversary's genetic agendas. Sleeper agents is as sleeper agents does.

Quoting again from Snake Bite,The timing of this experience, coming at a time when I am writing about the serpent/Satan in the garden of Eden seemed significant.” This observation is significant, providing the meaning relative to the sign. What Joseph published in, FOUNDATIONS: The Serpent Seed Doctrine, reveals to us why he is the one modeling the sign to us. Once more, “the sign pictures Champ as the lawless one, the champion who is snake bit during the Feast. He is Joseph's beast, and Joseph is left behind when the Bride is taken. Trusted as the Parables blogger and interpreter of dark sayings, he fails to discern the sign that is as plain as the nose on his own dog's face. He and those who follow his lead are unaware of their own state of being deceived.”

Saints, those of us who can be fooled will be fooled. The deception is mounting already. We have been warned of betrayal in that hour of crisis, with Judas, who was among the Lord's chosen 12, as a notable example. This is not yet that hour, but we have a beloved betrayer among us even now who was also exposed during the Feast. It's like he himself was snake-bit, like when Judas took the morsel and Satan entered into him, who was dispatched on his errand of betrayal. I don't want to go overboard, taking anything beyond what the Lord intends for us in this sign, and neither do I want to come up short of what must be brought. Judgment is upon us, dear saints, and none of us needs to be protected or spared what is due us. Everything hidden will be brought into the light.

As this sign was also a parable of Joseph's care for his champions, Aaron pointed out to me how Champ returned back to “business as usual,” calling to mind a passage in 1 Corinthians.

Quoting from Snake Bite, “The above photo was taken around 1:00 P.M. this afternoon. You can see Champ’s neck is still swollen, but he seems unconcerned and wants to play ball. He is eating good, and is enjoying another beautiful day outside. I am confident that Yahweh intends to bring him a full recovery. Hopefully Champ will be a little wiser, and more alert to the presence of snakes that like to hide in the grass.

1 For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea; 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 and all ate the same spiritual food; 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for they were laid low in the wilderness. 6 Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play.” 8 Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day. 9 Nor let us try the Lord, as some of them did, AND WERE DESTROYED BY THE SERPENTS. 10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer. 11 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. 12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:1-12

That was given as an example and warning, for our instruction, and so is this evident sign of Joseph's snake-bit Champ. I must echo the concern Joseph expressed. “Hopefully Champ will be a little wiser, and more alert to the presence of snakes that like to hide in the grass.” In this little parable, yes, by extension, Joseph himself is a snake in the grass.

Joseph Herrin is recognized by some among us as one who ministers faithfully and reliably to the Bride, as a humble and genuine friend. Some of his work has demonstrated an excellence in presentation and quality, and I've linked to a few of them in the past that I felt were worthy of attention. On the other hand, there have been some that come up quite short in ways that expose the follower to grave danger. This has now been revealed as a baiting and trapping operation. It's a set-up. If you almost qualify when the Lord chooses his Bride, you are still left behind. I've always wanted to overlook warning signs with Joseph, hoping he'll some day really be found bearing the best fruit, and maybe he will, but either way, let's take a look at a some warning signs.

If anything has been learned from the Open Scroll Blog, with the vast majority of the 1000+ posts representing an exhibit of why the 2nd commandment's prohibition against crafting images is for our protection, we can't simply ignore the use of logos by professed ministers of the gospel. There's always a good pretext offered to officially explain what the constituent elements mean, but there is a common symbol language that usually reveals something entirely different and which doesn't lie. Here's Joseph's logos, how he represents his identity and ministry.

By aesthetic standards, the logo for the site is beautiful. Decoding the symbolism, however, the message is not. The butterfly is a fundamental of Occult symbolism that is perhaps the most obvious sign of Monarch mind-control programming. I'll explain more about this shortly.

There are flourishes in the H, the 4 and the G that suggest the number 6 in each character. This kind of embedding of 666 is very, very familiar. The golden light is signaling Apollo and his golden light beast body. One can take the H as Horus, a feature common to many Occult logos, and the G as one of the meanings it has when it appears in the field of the Masonic square and compass, as the Generative Principle, which Fritz Springmeier would readily confirm to you.

666 and “Horus For the Generative Principle.” The mark of the beast will represent a reproductive process as the beast's DNA flesh and blood transforms humanity in his own image. Now, isn't that just what Joseph has been preaching against in his steadfast rejection of the “serpent seed doctrine” and denial of any featuring of genetics in what was going on before the flood of Noah's day? Which are we to believe? When we dare to take a hard look it should be pretty obvious what's really going on here. There's consistency and redundancy in the signs.

Observe also how the H is separate but the 4 and G actually touch. G is the 7th letter, and 4G or 47 is a signal of the 47th Problem of Euclid. This is also very familiar as I've demonstrated at length on the blog. Where the 4 and G join together a right angle is formed. The right triangle is suggested, the Pythagorean triangle that is the basis for the 47th Problem of Euclid. The esoteric solution is in the geometrical symbolism of producing Horus through the union of Osiris and Isis, the generative principle that is highly exalted as a precious secret.

The butterfly is above the 4 and G. If you are familiar with the forms of the glyph for Jupiter, aka Zeus, you'll recognize how this pictures the scene of his coronation with a golden crown.

The numeral 4 is sometimes used as a stick figure to illustrate a person squatting down with their butt exposed. That appears to be the case here. As an Occult diagram, the loop represents the anus, and the H appears in position as Horus, the sodomizer. The butterfly crowning the head presents the Monarch (butterfly) mind-control, the illumination of the crown chakra.

If Joseph made these graphics, whether or not he realizes what he made, or why it means what it does, is completely irrelevant. What is drawn from a well of creativity for something being done in disobedience is never holy. It is foolishness to think otherwise. If he had help with these, he still approved and uses them, and he is responsible and accountable for their display. By placing the definitions of “slander” on the open scroll graphic right after defaming me, that does suggest that he might not just be bumbling along in ignorance, but irregardless of intent or level of participation, these identifying graphics simply are what they are.

Joseph claims that the butterfly represents the transformation of a saint when they are born again, as a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly. There is another kind of born again experience, and this is the one that those who know and widely use such symbolism identify with the butterfly. What is consistent with everything else in view is that Joseph's butterfly really is about a transformation - ultimately it's about the Horus Eye transformation. The secret language of symbolism conceals and reveals what's really going on. Joseph's butterfly motif appears in all his logos and on his bus, and the Horus Eye symbol is supported on all of them.

Consider how Joseph bought a church bus and transformed that into “The Dreamer,” with butterflies all across the side.

Is “The Dreamer” on the theme of the born again saint or is it rather on that of the born again Monarch slave, where a dissociative trance state is a primary feature in that experience, which is called dreaming in coded language? Need another hint? This is appears with butterflies on the backside of the bus, on the window, on the back door. It is the dimensional window breached through ritual sodomy, the activation of the Horus Eye that brings the illumination of the gods. There is the ladder which one ascends to access what is most high and exalted. “The Dreamer” label also appears as on the forehead of the bus, above the windshield where the third eye would be, the other anatomical link to the Horus Eye. Even if you take “The Dreamer” as in the context of a saint, dreams come during sleep, so he's a sleeping saint, by his own admission.

A “church bus” vehicle-ministry is converted into “The Dreamer” vehicle-ministry. (See Butterfly Dreams) There's yet another parable.

Is this all starting to sink in? If you think, surely not, you still underestimate the subtlety of your Adversary.

What Heart4God means in this context is not how most of us have read it. The heart is the love the sodomites share with their god, which is so commonly associated with the usual heart symbol that resembles the derriere. I've got some experience interpreting this kind of coded message. See Series Links: The Sodomite Gateway. If you're taking offense at what I'm writing here I invite you to give that series your attention until you can accept the truth of just what it is that you've been looking at for your entire life without seeing what's really there.

Small wonder Joseph is so adamant about suppressing the truth of what really happened in the garden of Eden, with an extreme show of the taking of offense to lay down some cover.

The theme of the Horus Eye illumination of a Monarch slave is repeated in the header graphic appearing on First, the monarch butterfly is the blatant symbol of Monarch mind control programming. This Bible toting man wears the monarch butterfly on his sleeve. We may identify him with Joseph Herrin himself, The Dreamer. The idiom of someone wearing their heart on their sleeve speaks of how they display their feelings openly and habitually, rather than keeping them private. This is the very manner of the Heart4God author's presentations. It serves to endear him to us as someone who is vulnerable, who people that are naturally compassionate want to protect. His evident frailty and frequent recounting of mishaps adds to the dynamic. Given all the parables in sight, I read this as a sign that he knows how to work a crowd, and he's mocking us while providing cover. Thumbs up on the Bible. The worn Bible makes a show of humility, and the brown monk's robe colors makes a show of traditional piety. We're being played. It's apparent that the man is facing to our right. If we see him as an actor on a stage, he's moving to his left, traveling the left-hand path.

I was led to leave Joseph alone for years with a hands off policy. Several days ago the Lord prompted this effort, making it plain that he is not to be spared this exposure.

I've been deceived and manipulated by people all my life, and the worst offenders have been those who seemed above suspicion, holding positions where trust is most readily placed, having the appearance of being the most innocent, vulnerable and needy. The Lord has brought me through several seasons of testing where He brings their deeds and character into the light. I have been betrayed by the closest of family and friends, but I have discovered through this a small number are true friends, and we have One True Friend in common.

The other image in the Parables Blog header graphic shows light streaming through the trees. The following passage sets the scene. It's the garden of Eden. The light shining forth is the light of the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden, the light that illuminated Adam and Eve when their eyes were opened.

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. ~ Genesis 3:1-7

Through the ages, the way of Serpent illumination has been the Kundalini or Horus Eye way of ritual sodomy. That's how it works today and that's how it worked in the garden. There is a reproductive aspect of this that has a parallel to the production of seed through Eve that manifested on the physical plane. Again, this speaks to why Herrin is so vehemently opposed to me as I minister this truth about what happened in the garden. He's evidently on a mission to counter it, very specifically.

The header graphic bears redundant witness to ritual sodomy. The man carrying the Bible is mostly hidden in shadow. Where's his backside? From what direction is the light streaming? Between the man and the streaming light is the slogan, “Bringing Hidden Things To Light.” What's hidden is the anatomical Horus Eye, where the sun don't shine, the portal of illumination through which hidden things are brought to light in the world of Monarch programming. One end of the GI tract is often referenced by the other, like with the mouth of a river that is actually the opening where it dumps into another body of water. Again, this symbolism is very familiar. Read the verse, Psalm 78:2. “I will open my mouth...” Right. Where's the Bible toting man's backside again? We're being played.

The Parables blog is presenting parables that are dark sayings to be interpreted rightly. That's a twist on what Joseph represents it as, but that's how I see it, and I think that's been pretty well documented. Here's one more, the last one of this post.

Joseph Herrin divides his time between two locations. He's either at Jekyll Island or he's at his rural Hyde-away. Are you familiar with Robert Louis Stevenson's literary classic, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? There's a parable in this, and a ritual. As the story goes, Dr. Jekyll, “seeking to separate his good side from his darker impulses, discovered a way to transform himself periodically into a deformed monster free of conscience—Mr. Hyde. At first, Jekyll reports, he delighted in becoming Hyde and rejoiced in the moral freedom that the creature possessed. Eventually, however, he found that he was turning into Hyde involuntarily in his sleep, even without taking the potion.” (sparknotes) This alter identity swapping is a metaphor of the Monarch slave, who has multiple identities and switches uncontrollably between them. Some are good and some are evil.

Jekyll Island happens to be the location where many of the Illuminati bankers secretly met in 1910 to hatch a seditious scheme, planning the Federal Reserve System that will quite probably be seen as one of the pillars of the commerce regulating implementation of the mark of the beast. G. Edward Griffin published The Creature from Jekyll Island in 1994, shining the light on that notable scam.

and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. ~ Revelation 13:17

Yeah. There's that. Joseph loves it there. Jekyll Island is where his most recent accident happened, when he crashed his bicycle while being propelled by Champ. The most troubling injury was to his ribs. That's where a bride was removed from sedated Adam, remember?

How Joseph might respond to this post is not really the point because it's really about you. How are you going to respond? If you are just angry at me or Joseph that's something you'll need to find forgiveness for. If you've been taken in, sedated and acting like a dreamer, are you going to wake up to the subtlety of your Adversary, who games the system as he must with betrayal in the critical seasons? It's not me that Joseph and others are after, except that I am a messenger bearing a critical message, and Aaron Hermann with me. Beware, saints. The level of deception will only increase. If we've been fooled already, and stay that way, there's no hope to avoid the deception that is coming next year. In this season, as Russ Dizdar is rightly testifying, the spiritual war has now escalated in intensity, but it must be seen that we have been prepared for this. There are overcomers among us!

What kind of blowback will follow the continued exposure of Adversarial agents and their plans, with the steadfast offering of resistance to the increasing cloaking of deception? Ultimately, on the corporate level, the Bride will follow the way of her Bridegroom. He was plotted against by the religious leaders and betrayed by an insider. The setup involved false accusations and he was taken down. He was beaten and tortured, publicly mocked and paraded around in shame and finally crucified. As the Bridegroom so the Bride. The word we were given during this past Super Bowl was, prepare. There is sound advice in that warning.

+++++++++++++++++++ email of 1/22/11, the last of our personal interaction.

Dear Joseph,

With regard to females who prophesy, I had wanted to discuss at some point the matter of K-'s prophecies, at least one of which she sent to me with a cc to you. She has been drawing from a tainted well, and the Lord has been very patient with her and others involved, in requiring me to continue withholding any response. This series about Jezebel and Sarah is coming forth as part of the Lord's work in areas that few know about. K- is involved in a part of this. I know only in part, but the Lord has revealed some things to me and He continues to confirm that I am following according to His leading. This is why I am writing with such confidence in this matter.

This is also why I'm not going field your increasingly aggressive emails without a more suitable response. There are differences between us, as there must be. I believe there will soon enough come a time when there is a unity among us in the Lord. Until then, we must walk in the light we have. You have exercised the privilege of speaking frankly, and so shall I.

I'm not engaging in response to your arguments, and here's why. I consider you unwilling to listen. Here's an example: The email I sent you on 12/25/10 was a point-by-point on the subject of the wife as slave. An appropriate response would have been to acknowledge what I wrote. Your response (also 12/25/10) offered this instead.

"We may be at loggerheads in seeking to bring further light to one another by offering doctrinal proofs, or comparing servants to wives, etc.. So let me approach this from a practical point of view. At times clarity comes when we simply consider where a position will lead in terms of behavior."

You obviously expected me to simply yield to your better judgment, to see things your way. The servants/wives/slaves matter should have been given more regard. If you're not going to give what I consider appropriate consideration to my replies I'm not compelled to engage. Even with your continued pressing. I've learned to observe such things because there's no lack of folks who make demands on my time, teachers who are merely willing to engage me in condescending monologue. If you are truly interested in dialog, demonstrate it. You presume having the greater light in these matters, writing to me once again with correction in mind and even rebuke, but there is no conviction in it for me because it is my observation once more that your arguments as presented are weak, the reasoning sloppy, not mindful of important distinctions. If you're unconvinced by what I've written on the blog, what more can I write that might convince you, dear brother? Your mind is made up. It may be that you will receive this as my being non-compliant or in defiance of your authority, I don't really know.

Joseph, I love you sincerely. I have been generous with support without questioning the Lord's leading and am quick to honor you as permitted both publicly and privately. I perceive that you are a brother who ministers in some matters with few peers. One of the things I really like about you is that you appear to genuinely walk in the light you've been given, and when on occasion I read what you've written I sometimes perceive an anointing. However, this needs to be said, and I'm going to be very blunt. One of the things I don't like about you is how you have at times, in my opinion, worn the "homeless supported minister" and "I did jail time" experiences like a badge. When the Lord calls you to such hardship, you have to bear up to it. You seem to have done so and that's commendable but it's not to be referenced for self-exaltation. You don't own the market on faith, and I perceive the need for you to be more mindful of it. That's how I see it, and this is not a reaction to your recent emails but a testimony of what I have observed for a while, which has definite bearing here.

When it comes to the matter of the complete subjection of a woman to her husband, it is very apparent to me that your own faith comes up short. I've received the testimony of women who have expressed great joy at reading what I've been writing, attesting to what the Lord has already revealed to them. To most folk, yes, certainly it's too radical - I'm well aware of this. To some women of faith, and to men, it is simply the word of the Lord, intended to bring forth the most excellent fruit.

It must be noted that I've observed numerous instances over the years where what you've written contrasts what I've written, and had great confidence at times in perceiving you were in error, though it's not my habit to presume I'm always right. You'll notice this is the first time I've made this point with you. The Lord has directed me to let such matters pass without engagement, to leave it up to Him. He has assured me that He would take care of these things with you in His way and in His time. I profess being quite content with that, having no desire to exercise any form of controlling influence over you as you follow where He leads and where you feel led, and if you have such a desire regarding me you should make note of it as very relevant to the situation at hand.

I find it troubling that you're not receiving the message being brought forth, even proposing that I'm ministering according to unclean spirits. You're struggling with this important light for the Bride - and the hour is very late. I'm disappointed you don't recognize it, and too that you're still not catching on to the paternity of Cain message, which you confronted me about a while back. Joseph, I believe you're under conviction and you don't perceive it. You are the one who is resisting the corrective work of the spirit of God. The light being brought forth is convicting me too, and I am changing, which I knowingly invited when I began to write this blog series. The Lord asked it of me and I accepted, with a genuine awareness of my own need for the refining. I can hold nothing back. What I'm coming to understand and write about challenges your own past and present belief and practice. Those who receive what I'm blogging about are able to look now upon your activity and judge in that bright light. This cannot help but be threatening, and I know you derive support from such as these. I'm not accusing you of being a hireling shepherd who cares nothing for the sheep, but, as you should know, it's necessary to keep such a matter on the table. I am hoping you don't take offense.

If you choose to distance yourself from me publicly or denounce me, I accept that you will do as you feel you must. I'm not swayed by such with regard to how it might effect points of disagreement; I'm free. Many of those whom the Lord has drawn to the Web sites where we minister are very special folk. They watch us both and value what we write. For their sakes and ours, exercise caution, brother. I ask that you practice patience in this matter, even if you have taken offense.

I welcome further interaction, but I consider this matter of our disagreement about women submitting to their husbands and women speaking in the church to be closed, unresolved at the present. Expressing further disagreement in any escalated form between us in that matter will make our interaction into a "pissing match," which I certainly don't want. There is disagreement between us. Noted. You've had your say, now I've had mine.

With love,



  1. I'm someone who has also enjoyed many of Joseph Herrin's blogs, but something about the "Serpent seed doctrine" article seemed off to me.

    Considering myself not stuck with dogmas, I tried for a moment to discard the evidence for a sexually-related fall in the garden of Eden.

    Joseph's argument: Rom 5:12; Through one man sin entered into the world... would it be true, if Cain's father was someone other than Adam? Even though I'm not sure I have the correct answer, there's the record of giants in the Bible, who were fallen despite not being fathered by Adam. Like animals, the whole of creation share our fallen state.

    I read your "Who is Cain's father" articles and found them excellent. When God says in Gen. 3:23 "Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever" I believe this refers to the marriage of the Lamb. Christ is the Tree of life, and when the Bride marries Him, the Bride will live forever.

    And also, notice how God placed cherubims to guard the Tree of life?

    There are not many other verses in the Bible speaking of cherubims guarding something, but there is one in Revelation!

  2. ps. that school bus/church bus is painted like the Israeli flag. blue oyster cult. the Phoenicians/philistines had the market cornered on these mollusks and in my opinion signifies the sinful relationship with the enemy.

  3. Bob,
    All I can tell you is this. A week prior to Joseph's Blog on the Serpent Seed, I confirmed to him my thankfulness to his ministry and agreement with all of his work. When the Serpent Seed blog came out I was speechless. I was like "What?" How can you not discern the battle between "The Womans Seed" and "Your seed"???? Anyways, these are very touchy subjects.
    I wanna say this, I know the Adversary works in many ways. Can I offer up this? That he may disseminate disinfo between the brethren w/o the brethrens knowledge. I only offer that to say that I have SO benefited from you & brother Josephs teachings and have trouble with those who who lead others to Christ as being the enemy.What an insightful writing Bob! It is my prayer that we approach these things in the Spirit of Truth & of Love and not errantly cast judgment.............with Christ and the Holy Spirit being our guide!!!

    1. Brother, I encourage you to read this post another couple times over the next few days and keep it in prayer.

  4. You wrote "Through the ages, the way of serpent illumination has been the kundalini or Horus eye way of ritual sodomy. That 's how it works today and that's how it worked in the garden."

    May I gently remind you that what you deem "serpent illumination" is most often pursued through entering trance like states and by being touched as we see in Hinduism and the charasmatic movements today? Are there not references to touch and trance in Genesis? Are there not numerous exhortations in scripture about sober and sound MINDS? Was not Apollo in Acts 18 burning/boiling in spirit and met up with Priscilla (ancient) and Aquila (eagle/hawk)....? Are there not commands to not pass through the fire?

    Yes ritual sodomy is real. But more than that, exceedingly, are the millions upon millions engaging in mind altering experiences through drugs, eastern meditation practices.....The mind took in the knowledge of good and evil and gave birth to Cain and able....they are the products of that fruit, the seed producing like kinds....and resulted in the vain imaginations and continually wicked thoughts up to the flood....both stem from the mind...
