By the way, I want to express our gratitude for those of you who support this work with prayer at the Lord's direction. His sustaining provision for a fit defence and unfaltering offensive in the warfare of the hour is simply awesome!
The image chosen for the brand identity of the Prophecy Watchers is pretty easily recognized by anyone who is familiar with science fiction as a wormhole or stargate. The book promoted in the video is on that very theme, Time Travelers of the Bible. The intro for their videos opens with 7 seconds of animated stargate mind control imagery, attended by a soundtrack that sounds like pulsing wave energy. The rhythmic sound reminds me of Metropolis (1927) and the underground working of the city. The video closes in the same way. It's very similar to the Verizon brand's “mind-control” illustrations of propagating waves. Whatever that's about, it's not good.
I've been guilty of doing something similar in the past, in ignorance. Forgive me. I have learned better and I have repented of that. In this season, the brighter light of day demands that we rise to higher levels of critical judgment and refinement in our walk. We must walk in the light we receive as the Lord draws us near and we obediently separate ourselves from the ways of the world. Unto whom much is given, much is required. Luke 12:48
1 Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well. ~ James 3:1-2
Lord, help us attain to the measure of Your standard when the accounting is made!
We can take comfort and encouragement in knowing that He will have a Bride who is glorious and ready at His soon coming! Some will qualify!
Here's a revealing screenshot from the video of September 26, 2014 titled, Meet the Watchers, Part 2. While the stargate imagery used for their banner and background is pretty generic, the stargate imagery featured on this set is very specific. If you followed the Celestial Stargate series, you should be able to identify this scene as a Silver Gate transit.
The biplane is a model of the iconic WWII trainer known as a Stearman, Boeing Stearman, Kaydet, or sometimes, Model 75. The paint scheme is the popular Army design. The plane is part of Gary's proud heritage. He is a pilot and a Stearman of the Stearman Aircraft Company family. Commercial enterprise + military-industrial complex. Sometimes a model airplane is just an innocent prop, and sometimes it's not.
From the viewer's perspective, the biplane appears to be flying between coffee mug pylons. Covered with stars, the mugs present us with a celestial scene, one that has become very familiar to me. The matching mugs represent The Twins, Gemini. The airplane is a winged object, and, as I frequently declare, in symbol language wings speak of the ability to traverse dimensional barriers. The model airplane models to us a Silver Gate transit.
A five point star inside a circle is the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic of the underworld, the duat. In the celestial heavens, the duat is the Milky Way. Here's an excerpt from Part 1 of the Celestial Stargate series mentioned earlier.
“The Golden and Silver Gates are celestial, identifying regions of the heavens where the apparent path of the sun intersects the Milky Way. These are represented in a variety of ways as ritual is performed, with activity involving geography, as in the example I just offered, and other forms of representation. The practicers of legitimate magick ritual have long understood how it may be performed in the context of architectural structures or other non-physical means of representing the symbols in media that may be either animated or static. ”
The Prophecy Watchers video featured in this screenshot has both kinds, animated and static. What you're looking at is ritual magick. That's not really up for debate. If you've come to understand what has been put on exhibit here for the past 4 years you know what esoteric symbols mean, how they work and what they're for. What does that really say about Prophecy Watchers? Hold that thought.
The airplane's stars identify it as a star vehicle. Stars are angels, in biblical metaphor. It's an angel vehicle, transiting the Silver Gate. It has “starlight” yellow wings, angel light, to interpret the color symbol. The 2nd commandment might come to mind at some point, the one about not making such graven images, and not worshiping them.
The angel or goddess identified by the encircled star on the Stearman's wing is Venus. That's the familiar form traced out by the planet as it cycles through the celestial heavens. We see her emblems on the star vehicle as it flies between the starry pillars, modeling the goddess enabled Silver Gate transit. She is the goddess of magic and the facilitator of the opening of the stargate.
The star inside a circle symbol is usually called a pentagram or pentacle by those who employ it in their magick rituals, like Wiccans and other practitioners of the craft. The pentacle is customarily placed on the altar during rituals. Where do we find pentacles on the set of the Prophecy Watchers? The pentacle tile is the airplane wing, placed on the coffee table as a ritual altar.
In recent months I've been giving attention to how the time element of space-time wormhole transits is signaled in Occult media. Here's another example. See Gary's wristwatch? Sometimes a wristwatch is just a wristwatch, of course. But sometimes it's more than that, depending on the context. Bob Ulrich holds Gary's book, Time Travelers of the Bible. Notice the balance of these objects, how one is opposite the other on the outer flanks. These compare in a way that is obviously not for the sake of aesthetics. Balance is very important in the practice of witchcraft.

Central to the set is a fireplace.
1 Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. 2 He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. ~ Revelation 9:1-2
Given the obvious goddess symbolism of the circle star emblems of the Army (Athena-Minerva, goddess of war, also, Nike-Victory) and the 5 point stars (Venus, Horus) on the mugs, the fireplace in the setting provides further redundancy. The goddess of the hearth is Hestia, or Vesta to the Romans.
The book cover art for Time Travelers of the Bible explains the stargate imagery on the website. Gary's use of the familiar and pretty generic looking vortex imagery is no real cause for alarm, but when that is enhanced by the kind of display that involves the fireplace and hearth, biplane, mugs, watch and book, well, it certainly should give you pause. Distinctions must be made in these matters, very fine distinctions, because what's coming in not many more months time is going to be the ultimate hoax, and even some of you reading here will fall away in that day.
About Gary's book, certainly, the Bible gives accounts of time travelers. I haven't read the book, and while I suspect it contains some excellent research and insight that I would find useful, there's nothing of any benefit that could possibly change the bottom line, the primary objective.
Some of you may assign this symbolic set to accidental coincidence or innocent ignorance, but these things appear for your sake, so you have this further witness to how things really are. To ask whether Gary actually designed this on purpose or to ask whether someone else might have directed the set design is to miss the point. It simply is what it is, and it is a sign.
One might see the masonry on the set as another suggestive element. One might also perceive in the vertical line of Xs on Gary's tie the obfuscated square and compass symbol, but whether Gary and/or Bob might secretly be involved in Freemasonry is not something I care to speculate about. If there is such an affiliation, it would be significant, of course, but you should know that it doesn't really effect the bottom line.
What I find most interesting about Gary's potential self-identification here has to do with the model plane. It's a Stearman, his family identity - himself. In a figure, he's transiting the stargate - as a Time Traveler of the Bible. He has famously given his testimony about when he was flying and a UFO came alongside his small plane. His experience was such that he and the airplane he was flying were involved in a temporal anomaly. He and his plane were time travelers, in a very literal sense, traveling in a time-space outside the normal flow of time. Whether the UFO was one kind of heavenly vehicle or another is unknown. (See Heaven's Vehicles - UFOs - Fake and Genuine). One has to wonder if the set was designed with that event in view, whether with or without an awareness of what was being done.
Update: (10/23/14) A reader watched Pt 1 and noticed the similar stargate imagery with a red UFO making the transit. Thanks MD.
Here's a screenshot from the latest video Gary's Commentary on ISIS. The stargate imagery has been moved up to the bookshelf. The aligned celestial stargates are featured with the Golden Gate behind the Silver Gate.
The discussion of Isis is a fit topic because the Silver Gate image is a goddess spiral. The Eagle+sun+anus on Bob's coffee mug provides supplemental imagery. What did he say? What he does is speaking so loudly I can't hear a word he's saying.
What does the Occult imagery say about Gary and Bob Ulrich, and by extension, those like Tom Horn in that growing alliance? Some of you continue to struggle to accept what I've been proclaiming about church leaders. Some have already abandoned The Open Scroll, unable to receive the witness borne about others held in high esteem whose works have been brought into the light. The struggle here is not one of flesh against flesh but that which is between flesh and spirit, and spirit and spirit. Please refer to 1 Corinthians 2. This season is for the challenging of your faith, dear readers of The Open Scroll. It is an escalating trial. If you don't let go of the idols who look like ministers, friends and family, you are failing. I'm going to be offering a few scriptures that should provide further insight and resolution.
The words of Titus 2:13 appear in the Prophecy Watcher website's “stargate” header. If we fail to rightly discern the context we are going to be misled, deceived about what is meant.
Is Gary, who is pictured in the website's header gazing upward, really looking for what is my own blessed hope, the appearing of my Lord and Savior as a Bridegroom, or is he looking for another messianic agent to emerge from a celestial stargate?
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; ~ Titus 2:13 (KJV)
The verse comes from the popular King James Version, which brings up an issue that must be addressed. This traditional yet updated version has been programmed in the minds of many saints to suggest a mantle of higher authority on whoever uses it. If that's the effect it has on you, if you're a kind of Bible version snob like I used to be, you're still being played. The Devil and the Pope and Billy Graham can quote the Bible, and they can use any version they want. The way of Mystery Babylon is always to imprint lies upon the truth, making the truth the vehicle and cover for the delivery of lies. It's not just the words or the language but the authority behind the words that counts. It's not magic but rather the spirit of God through faith, hope and love that works what is of real and enduring substance.
Who is really being served by Gary in this new enterprise, launched in the familiar way of Mystery Babylon? If you can identify what you're looking at, the Prophecy Watchers video featuring the Silver Gate transit is a messianic introduction ritual, a ceremonial welcoming of a messianic agent into this realm from the underworld beyond. Many folks correctly identify the Jesus who is exalted by those who are the face and voice of Christianity as being identical to Horus. The circle star signs on the Stearman biplane's wings so obviously represent Venus, so “Our Lady of the Stearman” is Isis, who brings forth Horus. She is the Blessed Virgin Mary, who brings forth her son Jesus (Barabbas). The question is, and there is no more important question here: Which messiah is Gary looking for? That may seem like an absurd and stupid question, but it's the right question. It doesn't arise on the basis of the Occult imagery alone, but that does send a validating message that clarifies the matter for those who dare to accept the interpretation.
1 “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. 2 “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. 3 He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in righteousness. ~ Malachi 3:1-3
Who is “the Lord, whom you seek,” of verse 1? Can you discern it yet? It's not just Israel that seeks that earlier arriving Lord who is like a refiner’s fire. The time to receive the work of my Lord's own refining fire of the holy spirit is now, while we're in this brief and favorable bonus season of extended mercy and grace, before the other comes suddenly to his temple!
I believe the messianic savior that Gary seeks and serves is going to appear as an incarnation of the ancient sun god through an opened stargate. I don't doubt that Gary would steadfastly deny that it could be so. He will probably be stunned that anyone could suggest such a thing as that, but that's how it is with compromised agents of Babylon. He'll be more shocked to be confronted with the reality when the true Messiah manifests Himself.
42 Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 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. 44 For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. ~ Matthew 24:42-44
Few think the son of man is coming for His Bride in the Spring of 2015. Fewer still think the one who comes suddenly to his temple will precede him. In verse 43, we read a parable about those like Gary Stearman, the appointed authorities in the church. Many like Gary continually distance themselves from “datesetting” and “datesetters,” insisting that no one will know in advance when the Lord comes. The Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine is all about an imminent departure that will come at a time even Jesus Himself doesn't know. But, the truth of the matter is concealed and revealed in that very context, that some will know, just like how Noah knew in his day when the flood would come. Those who are discipled by Gary are convinced that they are living so as to be ready for Jesus to come at any given moment. It's just not going to work out that way.
A penetrating insight appears in that cryptic parable about the secret motives of those whom the Lord Himself has appointed as heads over His house, the church of His body. They see the Lord's house as their own and His most precious saints as their own valuables. The Bridegroom who comes to remove His own Bride from the Body (like Eve was taken out of Adam) is perceived as a thief, and they would prevent it if they could. That's the Lord's own indictment, and He would know! He knows the hearts of all men, and He appointed the oikodespotes, placing them as the stewards with authority in the church. Why would he do that? Saints, it's a love test. Do you love the Lord, really and truly?
8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
Few indeed among the saints are really awake, alert and watching diligently according to the Lord's command. Most slumber on as posers, deceived, following the tares and frauds and those appointed to lead them in the deceitful ways of Mystery Babylon into the fiery furnace. Most read Matthew 25's parable of the midnight cry and happily identify themselves with the wise virgins. In doing so, they fail to realize that all those in the parable slept, the wise and foolish together, when they should have stayed awake and alert to watch with lamps burning brightly. All ten were virgins but without exception they missed the wedding itself, failing to be found as a worthy Bride when the accounting was made. The irony is that among those who now consider themselves to be wise virgins are some who will be found as foolish in that day, having failed to acquire the oil for their lamps in this protracted season of opportunity.
With all that for background, let's take a critical look at the name of Gary's new enterprise and the arrangement of the stylized title.
“The Watchers”: That expression can and should be recognized as a reference to a class of angels. According to the book of Enoch, there were 200 of that class who decided to rebel against the Creator. They opened a stargate to fall from heaven to the earth in the days of Noah. They are of a class of prophecy watchers, to be sure, and maintain an obsession with stargates because they are eagerly anticipating the time when the Rephaim will reenter this material realm as the agents appointed to execute judgment in the earth. The ancient stargates will open for their deployment.
Consider the enlarged letter O of the stylized title logo. It's mostly purple inside, and ringed with white, signaling the divine. Purple is a sodomite signal color. It's a sodomite gateway image. Inside the letter, more rings are evident, even though they are subtle. The letter value of O is 15 when A=1, which transforms to the number 6 as 1+5. The O-generating stargate is pumping out instances of 6. Man's number, ringed with white, made divine. 666. The O is enlarged, exalted. The mark of the beast.
Read the letters that encircle the O. Do you see how the word, PORT, is easily derived? It is just that! The O sits over the T, which is the Tau cross and signal of Taurus, the goddess and Silver Gate sign, which is sometimes used as a triangle symbol to signal the anal triangle and sodomite gateway.
Have I gone overboard here? Well, not yet!
Just left of that we see the R over A. Ra, the sun god. The sloping alignment of the right side of the letters provides stylistic linkage. The adjacent image being emphasized is the Eye of Ra.
Prophecy Watchers. Acronym: PW - a Code 33. P=11 when Z=1 (RAS), and the W is a graphic numeral 3, rotated 90 degrees. PW ~ 33.
P over C: P(11-RAS) and C(3): 11*3 = 33
H over H: A graphic of a ladder of ascent/descent, a stairway to/from heaven, a stargate.
E over E: Double E is a graphic rotated double 3, 33.
C over R: RAS: C(24) + R(9) = 33
Y over S: Y(25) + S(8)-RAS = 33
Have I manipulated or exaggerated anything here? No. Can anything and everything be made to look bad with this kind of calculation, used like a cheap parlor trick? No. Do your own homework until you're satisfied with the results. Sure, these symbols are subtle, but that's the way of Occult symbols. This is all consistent with what I've been learning and sharing for years. The descriptive, Code 33, pretty well covers the scope of the Occult meaning of the brand's stacked title. If that doesn't speak loudly to you in this late hour I can't think you've yet derived very much benefit from the ministry of The Open Scroll. Whether Gary designed it or someone else did makes no difference. It's the brand's identity, Gary's brand.
The following image arrived in my inbox while preparing this post, as I was working on decoding the Prophecy Watchers logo. This very timely item was sent from Nehemia Gordon, of the Karaite-Korner website. If that name seems familiar, they are responsible for the reporting of what I call the Lord's biblical calendar.
Nehemia (Karaite Jew) and Keith (Messianic Christian) are paired in a distinctive one eye scene, and the bright O forms a third eye between them, illuminated. The kicked out leg of the R is a classic Eye of Horus symbol, like the Rx, here being “crossed” with the letter E. The R sweeps to collect RE and thereby name the sun god, and the leg reaches over to name RA for redundancy. Prophet Pearls ~ PP ~ 11 11 (RAS). The 11 11 numbering is a graphic of The Twins, Gemini, the twin pillars of the Silver Gate. PP or pee pee is a urinary or phallic reference, matching to the sodomite Horus Eye one eye and third eye illumination imagery. The title, Prophet Pearls, comprises 13 letters, signaling Isis raising Osiris, the goddess and rebel lord beast working. Karaite-Korner ~ KK ~ 11 11. Like the PP of Prophet Pearls. Korner, is a revision of, Corner. The use of K as C is a Code 33 signal.
The radiant letter O is a gleaming pearl and the swept leg of the letter R pictures the oyster shell that holds the pearl. The shell is the symbol of Venus, which many consider to be the bright morning and evening star. Like with the stylized title of Prophecy Watchers, the letter O is emphasized. The leg of the R sweeps across the letter E to form a T, so, again, the O sits over the T. It's the tau cross for Taurus, the Silver Gate portal, even having the markings of a horn like a shofar. The image of the O over bull horns is the ancient crown of Isis, like the logo for Novo Nordisk.
Again, like with Prophecy Watchers, read the encircling letters - PORT. Stargate. According to claims made about Tantra Yoga, the counter-clockwise rotation is descriptive of ascending Kundalini. Think Shivaism (Horus) and pineal activation, the third eye or Horus Eye illuminating pathway of the sodomite gateway. And the direction of the winding P-O-R-T is...?
Did that image arrive when it did by some cosmic coincidence? No, it's for our benefit. The Lord is working to counter the increasing deception by shining a brighter beacon into the darkness. Don't blink, in a figure, when you look around at all that is going on around us. Seek your provision as daily bread and manna from the Lord Himself.
Let's take a look beyond the accoutrements and esoteric elements of design to consider what Gary Stearman does as he ministers, maintaining the same piercing light of critical inspection.
Gary is very well spoken of, being lauded by his peers. L.A. Marzulli recorded the following on his blog. “I call Gary Stearman Elder Brother. He is one of the most erudite men I have ever met and I consider him a mentor in all things prophetic.” (8/18/14) Russ Dizdar likes to refer to Mr. Stearman as Doctor, honoring him for the perceived intellectual acumen of academic achievement.
So, what's wrong with being well spoken of? In one important and very relevant context, it's like a red flag on the field of play.
20 And turning His gaze toward His disciples, He began to say, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 22 Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. 23 Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets. 24 But woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full. 25 Woe to you who are well-fed now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat the false prophets in the same way. ~ Luke 6:20-26
Basking in the approval of men has a lot of appeal to the flesh, but not the spirit of God.
Gary, very much like J. R. Church before him, is ever the consummate corporate style pitchman, smooth and polished. Sales and marketing are always present in his public offerings. He's always busy promoting special deals. Is this really acceptable behavior for someone who is leading by example those who genuinely seek above all else to be found worthy of the Bridegroom at His coming? No. Dare to be brutally honest here. Take a hard look. Some of you are sensitive to such indicators but many struggle because of personal investments and attachments. You'll have to seek the Lord for His help with this.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. ~ Luke 12:34
All of the familiar talk that sounds like, “for any donation,” when the exchange of merchandise is involved, derives from 501c3 constraints. That language derives from having made a legal arrangement with the state, a compromise made for the sake of mammon. Church commerce - Mystery Babylon.
Look around you and see what you may have accepted as passable examples of humble and obedient leadership. Are the familiar kinds of manipulative marketing campaigns and conflicts of interest really acceptable to you? Hey, Ebola is a scary threat. [waving arms, hopping up and down] Fortunately, you can buy stuff from us to make you feel safe. Oh, and don't forget guns and ammo to protect your stash. And, how about some precious metals to persist your financial holdings? Wrap anything in scripture and it sounds so right to the carnally minded. Survival. The flesh wants to survive. Oh, but what about protecting your family? That gets tossed around plenty. If being a willing sacrifice is good enough for you when martyr time comes, isn't it good enough for your family? Where's the love? Where's the genuine faith and hope? If the Lord wants to preserve this life, I'm all for it, but presuming that's the case and vilifying those who are being led by their Master down another path, that's not going to be met with a good reward. Is self-promotional grandstanding the witness of your Lord's character? Suits and ties are generally for salesmen and board meetings, except as the Lord Himself may so direct. Where there is the striking up of the band and the marching out of a parade of “celebrity endorsements,” a trumpeting of popularity and influence, or even the boasting of the lack thereof when it serves a posturing with false humility, that's an embracing of the way of the Pharisee. Flee from it. “Come out of her, my people.” The Emperors have new clothes, but they fail to cover their nakedness.
If I'm writing these things for the sake of providing cover, as some do, such hypocrisy will certainly be exposed and dealt with severely. I'm not making these comparisons for the sake of posturing because, I openly admit, I would surely have gone that same route if the Lord hadn't dealt with me in no uncertain terms. More than once, to my shame. I have nothing of my own character to be proud of. Nothing. I haven't come to this season without knowing the Lord's discipline as a son whom He loves. I can assure you that Aaron has not come to be a partner in this work without also being hit with “the humble stick” repeatedly. We have been stripped bare in matters of pride and the arrogant flesh more times than we want to think about. Coming to a place of submission is not easy or common, but it is so worth it! Our Lord and Savior is generous with His favor and faithful to His promises!
Gary is kind of the anchor man for Pre-Trib Rapture promotion. Tom Horn has recently adopted the doctrinal label in making an alliance with Gary, publicly driving his own vast and highly exalted empire's stake inside the Pre-Trib Rapture camp. When the Lord began to work with me with a different anointing, I came to Him with that same doctrinal foundation. It took a while to fix that, to sort things out, and it wasn't easy or quick.
Does Gary give any attention to matters of gender propriety, which are surely relevant in his realm of activity? If you have been willing to minimize, ignore or dismiss such matters you have already been under judgment, but you most certainly won't perceive it until the Lord Himself brings conviction.
I have nothing personal against Gary, or Nehemia or Keith. Years ago, circa 1992-3, in a season when J.R. Church and I were having fairly regular conversations on the phone I would sometimes talk briefly with Gary while waiting for J.R. to come to the phone. I always liked Gary. Actually, I love Gary. The Lord loves Gary.
You will note that I'm not approaching him in private to restore him as a brother in error. Like with Russ in my post of October 3rd, this is not that kind of confrontational work. By the way, when I wrote recently about Russ Dizdar of shatterthedarkness.net, he was still wrapping his broadcasts in stargate ascension music. The Prophecy Watchers videos are wrapped in like fashion. Are you still confused or troubled about the post of October 3rd? The Lord has brought this conflict for your sakes, not for me and Aaron, for Russ or his audience. I'm pointing these things out for your sake. It's time to judge rightly with a critical eye and hold no one and no institution beyond scrutiny, and certainly not granting your own selves an exemption. Most of what appears to be is not as it seems.
For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you. ~ 1 Corinthians 11:19
Some will read here and simply see me as Satan, accusing, attacking and persecuting the innocent brethren. While some may want to paint me as a cowardly sniper taking pot shots, I'm not hiding in the weeds or perched in some guarded ivory tower. I'm just not very concerned about you condemning me, or receiving the condemnation of TPTB in this age. I'm concerned about you receiving condemnation for rejecting the Lord's commands, for rejecting Him. I'm concerned about fulfilling what we are called to do in our Master's service.
I'm not interested in interfering with what Gary's doing, or Tom or L.A. or Russ Dizdar or the Pope or anyone else who has been named on this blog. I have no ill will or intent to interfere with the present working of Mystery Babylon, except for in the lives of a very small number of you. In this season, I have no interest in gaining the attention of their large spheres of influence. I have no intent to correct or fix anything done by the oikodespotes. You have to know that David, who was a man after God's heart, did not want to mess with Saul, and I get that. I also get that the Lord has appointed someone to man the spotlight, actual a pair of men, with Aaron at my side. The Lord has a plan and He chooses His agents and agencies and the roles they play.
I had no political agenda when I published the “Obama - Yes We Can = Thank You Satan” video to my YouTube channel. By the way, I recently heard this statement made on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report: “Without America, there is no free world.” Nonsense. Patriotic and carnal clap-trap. With or without America, there is no free world, except where the Lord of Hosts makes a saint free indeed! I'm not trying to taint the reputation of any business or organization whose logo, ad, commercial, film or song has been featured in an unfavorable way. That would certainly be the expression of carnality, and there's no allowance for that in this season. I shine the light on Presidents and ministers and other entities because it's a requirement in the preparation of a Bride people who can see with the Lord's eyes to pierce through the darkening cloak of deception.
Here's a noteworthy observation. I've featured Titus 2:11-14 on the home page of TheOpenScroll.com for many years.
11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. ~ Titus 2:11-14
Gary's new website features Titus 2:13 in the header. From the beginning of what has become The Open Scroll, I've been focused primarily on the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. I've also featured Mark 13:35 prominently for many years, on TheOpenScroll.com and on the Blog. “What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!' Gary's new enterprise is called Prophecy Watchers. Is Gary doing a copy cat, trying to imitate me? I doubt it, but in these observations there is an important illustration, being made for your sake. The Lord is making a point here. Tom Horn has been outspoken about having expectations for the fulfillment of prophecy in 2016. He has published a work titled, Blood on the Altar, which is about the approach of martyrdom, where professing saints persecute saints. Here's the important point about discernment. The truth is going to have closer and closer competition in the critical arenas. The need for the most refined faculties of discernment increases as we approach the day of the greatest trial of our age. There will be blood on the altar, and saints will be persecuted by saints, but Tom's role and those who follow his wide and widening way won't find themselves as the persecuted ones when it really counts. They'll be focused as they are now, on survival and preserving their fortunes and families. To be found worthy of being accounted as unleavened barley in that day's sacrifice is not so easy, and precious few will attain to it.
The day will come when all those who live godly will be persecuted as promised on a scale not seen in a long time. As you lay claim to your inheritance in days to come, the promises of persecution for those who would live godly and plain statements of how the world and worldly would hate His people will be manifest. Matthew 10:22, 24:9, Mark 13:13, Luke 21:17.
18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. ~ John 15:20-22
