The Sign for the Bride - A Fourth Installment of the Revision

As before, this installment continues from the previous one. I'm still updating one of the core studies on theopenscroll.com. This is going to reflect the expanded insight that has come more recently in this remarkable season. The revision may be found here, as The Sign for the Bride - Part 1. If I'm not responding to your email, please bear with me.

A Sign to Refute the Lie

Now, with the subject more clearly in view, what we're being warned about in this passage makes sense. In the overview offered in this study's introduction I wrote that the revealing of the lawless one can be seen as a sign, as a special kind of evidence intended to assure us that the gathering to the Lord, in the Day of the Lord, has not yet happened. While that's the main thrust of the message there's more to it than that. Before we explore further let's make sure we're clear on the main point, which everything else hangs on.

When we read through verses 1-12 of 2 Thessalonians 2 we can see how there's an abundance of what might be considered extraneous information. It's not superfluous, of course. Paul isn't just rambling on in a clumsy attempt to communicate some vague sense of comfort, as demonstrated by the thematic structure that betrays its divine source, but we have to distill from all that what point is being made. The Author has not made it easy for us to discern the truth of it. The essential message can be distilled from the first 3 verses.

1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Paul is making a request, entreating, beseeching, imploring. His concern is that the saints will be quickly shaken from their composure. The threat is very specific. It involves some report to the effect that the day of the Lord has come, which is to say that it has already past. Why is it so important that the composure of the saints is not quickly shaken? What difference does it make if the saints are disturbed by such a report? Our hope is at stake, our reward! If there is no ingathering to the Lord in our future because this is already past, our hope is for naught and our faith is destroyed. Consider what he had just written in chapter 1.

4 therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure. 5 This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. 6 For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed. ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:4-10

Whew. When you have mopped up your tears and regained your composure (oh, the Lord is so good to us!), consider the value of this hope we have. If you have not already had such a personal revelation about it, try to imagine if there were some demonstration of evidence that convinced you that your hope was unfounded. If you had truly had such a hope you would be completely devastated. Here's what Paul wrote to the Corinthians when he was about to share with them some comforting truth about their hope.

If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus for merely human reasons, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, `Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.` ~ 1 Corinthians 15:32 (1 Corinthians 15 - Interactive Display of the Symmetry)

What Paul was entreating the Thessalonians about in the focal passage wasn't unwarranted. He wasn't just responding to rumors. Paul's robust description of the threat reveals that it's more substantial than just a rumor. Although rumors with false evidence had probably been circulating in their communities and the faith of some had already been shaken, his entreaty was not just for them, then. It was for every saint where this epistle was read, providing for us, even today, a substantial basis for maintaining a reliable defense that can stand up in the face of convincing lies about the harvest having come and gone, with all hope of just reward.

When saints are confronted with such a lie and there is substantial evidence provided in support of the claim, how can such as that be refuted with confidence? We have been given a sign for just that reason, and either it is so adequately defined and reliably recognizable that even in its absence we can be fully assured of our hope, or Paul's elaborate precautionary entreaty is impotent, feeble and pointless, a swing and a miss. So, which is it? Is the church going to fall into apostasy and then the lawless one will be revealed? Or, is the church going to be raptured then the lawless one will be revealed? Is there substance in any of that to refute anything, or is that not the point of the message? Is there anything in such nonsense but confusion? How absurd. What a ludicrous mess, that doctrine of devils!

The pre-trib rapture theory being promoted by so-called prophecy experts is utter claptrap. What a huge set-up. The other popular theories, mid-, post-, pan-, pre-wrath - all of them are faulty, part-truth and therefore untrue and wholly unreliable. Brethren, what you believe matters. Plenty. Do you have false hope? That's bad. Is your faith based on lies? This is going to be exposed, and your faith will fail.

I'm not making nebulous warnings here. I'm going to give it to you straight from the scriptures, untwisted, with the Lord's help. Some months ago, the Lord began to impress upon me how this message of 2 Thessalonians 2 was most particularly and very specifically intended for a people who will witness the event described as the sign - perhaps you or someone who hears your testimony, because it's now not far distant.

Many claim that this is not the stuff of salvation, but that is another one of the Devil's lies. Folks, we've been set up! If it has been easy to be deceived in this day and hour, just wait another year! When you see what the divinely appointed thematic equation has to reveal about the primary audience for Paul's cryptic message, which has been so incredibly targeted by the ministers of misinformation and disinformation, you'll understand why I've been required to update this study with this insight in this late hour.

16 “Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. 17 For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light. 18 So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him.” ~ Luke 8:16-18

A Sign for the Bride

Now, one of the implications of this very obscure message delivered by Paul is that, at the revealing of the lawless one, that which was promised would not come first will logically follow after that signal event. Once the sign is witnessed, those who recognize it will know that the gathering to the Lord is impending. At least some of them, perhaps all those involved as witnesses in that day, will know that three harvests will come in sequence at their appointed times, and at least some of those saints will understand about their role in the impending Barley Harvest, which I also refer to as the Bride Theft. The baptism and anointing of the Antichrist beast will thus be a sign for the Bride when it happens, who alone will be awake and alert and sober in that day, excepting the 144k sons of Israel and 2 witnesses. The dramatic revealing will indicate the nearness of her Bridegroom's approach. Given how the Body of Christ today appears to be suffering from an overspreading blindness, if the Lord has opened your eyes and ears and granted you the grace to perceive the truth about the sign, I encourage you to thank Him and honor that by pursuing hard after the opportunities that appear before you, to enter fully into the Lord's provision and accept the sufferings and the glory.

The Lying Report - A Supernatural Multimedia Hoax

I mentioned at the outset how a third element in the sequence of events is directly related to the two that follow it. That element is the lie itself, the threatening report Paul was entreating us about, which is to the effect that the day of the Lord has already come. Like I just mentioned, the Lord has been impressing upon me how this message of 2 Thessalonians 2 was intended primarily for the saints who would actually witness the revealing of the lawless one. What had so long ago threatened to shake the composure of the Thessalonians was a foreshadowing of what is about to come. After He began to impress this upon me I began to see models of this being dramatized in media. I wrote at some length about this during the recent Winter Olympics, because this deceptive report was modeled during the opening ceremony and then again in the closing ceremony. If you read Part 3 - Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 - The Ultimate Hoax, which I recommend for a collateral study, you'll find a fair synopsis of much of what you are reading here. What I discovered since the Olympics is what I'm about to demonstrate.

I believe what the Lord was revealing about a supernatural multimedia hoax is validated by the thematic structure of 2 Thessalonians 2!

A little over a week ago I returned to my earlier work, a version of the structure I think was unchanged from 1991, except for updating the presentation to one that is interactive. It was speaking to me of a need for further refinement because it was not as granular as I suspected the divine design probably was, based upon insight acquired during the hundreds of hours I invested over the years in the analysis of entire chapters of scripture. The Lord granted me the favor to bring it into the state you explored earlier, in the interactive frame, and which you see below. After becoming satisfied with this refined version, which I find far more compelling, I reflected upon the deeper insights offered by the newly discovered thematic equations.


What the Lord had worked with me to discover in 1991, which facilitated the key insight about the baptism, was quite intact. What really struck me now was how the extensive description of the massive deception that would obviously attend a baptism and subsequent fraudulent messianic ministry was directly matching to the description of the report that Paul was entreating us about. Wow!

The connections I'm going to be pointing out weren't apparent prior to this recent analysis. All the content describing the sign is set within bracketing elements that describe the deception. When I shared this refined presentation with Aaron, we marveled together at how awesome and masterful the Lord is in crafting His Word. How touching is His loving care in tending to our need in these last days! What is coming is going to be most challenging, but the Lord has ordained that there will be Overcomers!

And, there's still more to follow, which will be posted soon, Lord willing.

The Sign for the Bride - A Third Installment of the Revision

Many of us have way too much confidence in the reliability of the acclaimed teachers of the past and present, taking comfort in what's popular and familiar. We have been set-up for a great fall. The large numbers are going to fail to find the narrow gate. Belief in the widely accepted doctrines that are being promoted and maintained will assure it.

As with the previous post, this picks up where that left off. I'm still updating one of the core studies on theopenscroll.com. This is going to reflect the expanded insight that has come more recently in this remarkable season. The revision may be found here, as The Sign for the Bride - Part 1. If I'm not responding to your email, please bear with me.
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + +


Now, let's take a closer look at 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7, the cryptic secret companion to where apostasia is found. As we consider the text in a literal fashion with an eye to the changing positional relationships of unseen entities in the heavenly realm we'll find a substantial validation for the explanation I've been offering and more light being shed on the supernatural dynamic at the revealing of the lawless one. Let's keep our minds anchored and focused so they don't return to old habits and snap into auto-pilot mode to fly off to some remote location, to some foreign context. Let's keep what valuable lesson we've learned about context firmly in mind.
Here are a few versions of interest.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (NASB): 6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (KJV): 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (YLT): 6 and now, what is keeping down ye have known, for his being revealed in his own time, 7 for the secret of the lawlessness doth already work, only he who is keeping down now [will hinder] -- till he may be out of the way,

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (Interlinear): 6 And now that which is restraining you know for to be revealed him in his time 7 the indeed mystery already is working of lawlessness only the restraining at present until out of midst he might be

A Greek word that appears in both verses 6 and 7 is being variously translated as “what restrains,” “what withholdeth” and “he who now letteth,” “is keeping down” and “is restraining.” The word is katecho, Strong's G2722. The sense of this word is given to us as, “to hold fast, keep secure, keep firm possession of” and “to restrain, hinder (the course or progress of)” and “to check a ship's headway i.e. to hold or head the ship.” There's nothing amiss about these definitions. To understand what it means we just have to remain in context, focused. A simple faithful rendering of ginomai ek mesos, which appears in the NASB as, “he is taken out of the way” is “gone from among,” or, “out of midst he be.” Some being or entity is emerging out of the midst of something. The topic is the hindering and eventual enabling of this entity's emergence.

Now, with the constraining thematic equation in mind to establish the context for us, we see how the message harmonizes perfectly with its companion. What is going to emerge out of the midst of some heavenly realm is pneuma antichristos, the anointing that will manifest as a sign during the baptism of an impostor. At present, this spiritual entity is held in check, restrained from emerging. There is an active working of this pneuma antichristos at present (which we know also from 1 John 2:18), but a special appointment has been reserved for the climactic messianic hoax. When he or it is released, as verse 3 declares, then “shall have come the [standing away from] first and shall have been revealed the man of lawlessness.” There it is! It's quite simple, really, when you give the natural symmetry of the scriptures due respect. Allowing, of course, that the Author has opened our eyes and granted us the requisite revelation insight. He is so good to us!

What we've covered thus far is merely the core of what must be learned about this passage. Because of the manifold doctrines of demons that have been swirling around this passage, attention has been drawn away from a key aspect of the event. Much has been made of who or what is the agent responsible for doing the restraining while the subject that should be the focus of our attention is overlooked. The matter of timing is a constant thread in verses 6 and 7 and in the surrounding context, and this really demands our attention.

So That in his Time he will be Revealed

Paul indicates that his readers have been adequately informed on the subject of the restraining.

6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:6

He's not inviting us to speculate about what or who is the restraining agency. Most of us scratch our heads and wonder if we might have been absent when he gave that lecture, but he actually makes his point right here in the immediate context. But few take notice. The point being made about keeping pneuma antichristos in check is that there is a set time for this. There is a season for restraining and a fit moment appointed for its release. Reread verse 6 until this sinks in. The Greek word used here for “time” is kairos: “2a - a fixed and definite time.”

If you're generally ignorant about how the Lord keeps a tight schedule in this age and that the key events have been encoded into His calendar, you have not been doing your homework. For a long time. I don't mean to be insulting, but the Lord has been revealing these things and had his servants publish them to make it accessible for many years and many of us are guilty of negligence.

Paul made a declaration in his first letter to the Thessalonians that is similar to verse 6 above. That will be understood as having had paramount importance in the day appointed for the revealing of the lawless one, when it will be seen that ignorance of these scheduled appointments, and this one in particular, has costly consequences.

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. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2

I expect to be writing more on that subject, having recently refined and expanded the work I had done years ago on the thematic structure of the passage that includes chapter 4 in its scope. The saints have been misled about the basis for destruction. We have been set-up. And we have deserved it.

If you digested the recommended study titled Baptism - The Prophecy, you understand how Yom Kippur, aka the Day of Atonement, was instituted as a holy day, in no small part, to prophesy of, describe in its fulfillment while legal matters in the spiritual realm were addressed, and memorialize our Lord's baptism. If you are familiar with the collateral study titled When Jesus was Baptized - The Celestial Signs, you have even more insight into how things are done in the Lord's economy.

The understanding of times and seasons compares to the frame of a jigsaw puzzle in how it provides essential scale and defines the fundamentals of contextual relation. Until you are made privy to the Lord's schedule of appointments, the events marked out, both future and past, and their relationships are at best, poorly defined. When the Lord corrected my error concerning whether or not the timing of key transitional events like the harvests would be known in advance it was quite another epiphany! (Will No One Know the Day?) They will be! The Lord Y'shua was baptized and anointed on Yom Kippur, but the Antichrist anointing is appointed for a different day on the calendar, a day positioned nearly exactly opposite on the annual cycle. There are several historical examples modeling the event with its timing for us in the scriptures, and these are the subject of the next part in this bookish online series on the subject of The Sign for the Bride. There have also been validation signs of the event and the day appointed since I've been on watch for it over the span of the last nearly 20 years.

So, until you've been properly informed about the critical matters of timing, you have not yet been properly informed. Those who have not been adequately informed have wrongly supposed “not knowing” makes no difference, stumbling on ahead in the dark with imaginative speculation. Hey - been there, done that, got the T-shirt.

Returning our attention back to verse 6, we see now that Paul's message wasn't placing emphasis on the identity of the restraining agency so much as on the importance of knowing there is a season appointed for the restraint that has a set limit. When the appointed time arrives there will come an end to it.

6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:6

The pneuma antichristos will be released at the appointed time, according to plan. The sovereign God will assure it. The host and the agent appointed as his baptizing high priest will be fully ready in this perfectly synchronized action. The setting will be precisely according to design and there will be a fit reception awaiting the big debut! According to the model of John 13:27, Jesus Himself will give the signal. At His word, a dimensional portal will open and that spiritual entity will fall away, “apostasia,” and the special anointing will descend upon the host. This will reveal him - with the attendant supernatural manifestation of lying signs and wonders. The debutante's coming out party will be spectacular and unrivaled. At least, that is, until the one shows up who will end his masquerade. If you want to see a party, just wait until you see His welcome party!

If you've been reading the blog for a while, you have come to understand this event in the language of the ancient celestial stargates and deities. Horus, by one name, will transit the Silver Gate to incarnate into the prepared host. You may note that the clocks and timers and hourglasses that often appear in the symbolic Occult context suggests how this comes at an appointed time, as well as in connection with a special provision of control over the activation of time-space portals.

With all this insight into the meaning of the passage, there's still much more to be gleaned. We've only got the core of it thus far in this document, but we should at least have that with full confidence.

The Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and Our Gathering Together to Him

Much of the theological sleight of hand giving a spin to the truth presented here has been facilitated by the doctrine of demons that makes a false distinction between the constructs that reveal the critical matter of timing. This, too, finds a corrective contextual guide in the thematic structure.


The second part of verse 1 is matched to the second part of verse 2, so one sheds light on the other side in this thematic equation. Because “with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,” compares to “either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come,” we can and must equate and clarify the descriptive constructs. These are represented in “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” “our gathering together to Him,” and “the day of the Lord.”

The day of the Lord is a millennial day, the 7th, and we crossed over on Yom Teruah of 1999, as I've documented with confidence. There are mistaken notions about this, which aren't really germane to this study. I've sufficiently addressed this in other studies. The coming of the Lord can be represented in a long sequence of events that actually began, from a very important perspective in 1991. That's when the celestial sign marking Yom Teruah identified to us the beginning of His coming in judgment. In this sequence of events, the kind being brought to our attention is called “our gathering together to Him.” I say, “kind,” because there's actually three of these ingatherings appointed, which are called in some contexts, harvests. All three of these are in view. They are appointed to follow each other in sequence, just as laid out on the Lord's calendar. These will all three of them happen in connection with the coming of the Lord, not independent of it. These three will also occur during the Day of the Lord, and again, for the sake of clarity, not independent of that. This understanding is in harmony with the divine organization of the message.

The nonsensical fractured mishandling of these constructs by the church authorities conflicts with this divine thematic pairing, and this distortion is used to do much further damage to the message. The problem here isn't just a matter of the innocent being ignorant. This will become very apparent when we've come to the end of this presentation.

Again, there's plenty more to follow, which will be posted soon, Lord willing.

The Sign for the Bride - A Second Installment of the Revision

This continues from the previous post. I'm still updating one of the core studies on theopenscroll.com. This is going to reflect the expanded insight that has come more recently in this remarkable season. The revision may be found here, as The Sign for the Bride - Part 1. If I'm not responding to your email, please bear with me.
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + +

The cryptic explanation of the unseen activity at the revealing of the Antichrist lawless one may be understood from the revealing of the Christ because that is his template. If you followed my earlier suggestion to read Baptism - The Prophecy, some of this will be familiar.

Baptism Reveals

The baptism of John was actually a sign, an event that revealed. The lawless one will also be revealed at his baptism. John 1:31 records John's testimony about when Y'shua was baptized.

John 1:31 (NIV) I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.

John 1:31 (NASB) I did not recognize Him, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I came baptizing in water.

John 1:31 (YLT) and I knew him not, but, that he might be manifested to Israel, because of this I came with the water baptizing.

Baptism is for manifesting, making manifest, revealing! It makes manifest the one baptized so it may be understood as a sign given for the purpose of identification. We just read about how the baptism by water was an identifying sign to Israel. Consider how the declaration is repeated to clarify how this was likewise an identifying sign to John, personally, Y'shua's own cousin.

32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God. ~ John 1:32-34

As it was with the Messiah, so will it be with the Antichrist, when revealed through baptism. This revelation insight into the baptism model has been confirmed to me by way of how the sponsor of that antichrist baptism spills the beans. The big event is modeled in paintings and corporate logos, public ceremonies, plays, movies, music videos, commercials and other kinds of animated presentations like I, pet goat II. The Lord has used these pre-enactments to validate what He opened to me in the scriptures, way back in the early summer of 1991, and to bring me now in this late hour, with a returning to the 2nd chapter of 2 Thessalonians, to an expanded and refined understanding of what is about to unfold in another year's time! As you can tell, this presentation is taking some time and effort to get through, but it's worth it, so worth it!

In Luke's Gospel we find an account that illustrates the example for what is referred to in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 as apostasia, the standing away from.

21 Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” ~ Luke 3:21-22

Heaven opened and holy spirit descended in bodily form like a dove. Call it a stargate transit. A voice came out of heaven that obviously belonged to Jesus' Father in heaven. Okay. That's not too complicated. So, the dove-like holy spirit, where did it come from? Was anybody else there? These aren't hard questions. Before heaven opened, was the spirit with Jesus' Father in heaven? Of course. When the spirit descended, was the spirit still with Him in heaven? Of course not. It's on this simple model that we read the following in 2 Thessalonians.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 (NASB) Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy [literally: “standing away from”] comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Because a counterfeit is modeled on a genuine, there must come a similitude. The dove-like holy spirit was together with Jesus' Father in heaven, Who is also known as the Holy Spirit. When heaven opened and the spirit descended, the holy spirit was apostasia the Holy Spirit and the presence of any other spirits in that realm, standing away from with respect to position. Using the King James version, there was “a falling away” as the spirit descended from heaven, departing from its former heavenly abode and separating from those with whom it had formerly been abiding. There was no revolt, rebellion or apostasy involved, merely a change of position. The revealing of the lawless one will be with a counterpart anointing of unholy spirit. As I wrote earlier, the word apostasia neatly encapsulates the description of the unseen activity, and this is the theme of its structural companion in verses 6-7.

One of the major obstacles I had to overcome before I could get my mind wrapped around what the Lord was trying to show me was the idea that two different kinds of things were being identified in the apostasia and the revealing of the man. I held the notion that the apostasy of the church was going to happen, and then after that the lawless one was going to be revealed. When I realized that a baptism and anointing was in view and that “apostasia” was actually describing the supernatural dynamic involved, I had an epiphany.

It's like as if you told me there was an incident and the car was wrecked. If I make the connection between the incident and the car wreck it's immediately obvious that the car was wrecked in the incident because it was a car accident. The two are directly related. The incident didn't come first, to be followed by the wrecking of the car as somehow independent of that incident. You see, the lawless one isn't going to be revealed as some event independent of apostasia. It's more like a cause and effect relationship. There's going to be a “standing away from” as the unholy spirit of antichrist separates and descends, a falling away with the subsequent result that the lawless one is revealed. If popular versions were less interpretive, we might be reading something more along the lines of this uninterpreted rendering found in a Greek-English Interlinear, where apokalyphthe is translated, “shall have been revealed.”

no one you should deceive in not one way because if not shall have come the apostasy first and shall have been revealed the man of lawlessness the son of destruction ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Interlinear)

See it? Are you having an epiphany yet? Give this account of the model another reading.

31 I did not recognize Him, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I came baptizing in water. 32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God. ~ John 1:31-34

The anti-dove-like unholy spirit is different from its holy counterpart. It's being restrained in an assigned zone, an underworld realm that is described in the following passage.

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. ~ Ephesians 6:11-12

The epistle of 1 John has a pertinent revelation for us.

and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. ~ 1 John 4:3

The phrase, "this is the spirit of the antichrist," is more literally, "this is that of the antichrist," because the translators furnish the word “spirit” that is not technically in that text. This version isn't being represented as a literal translation but as an interpreted version, so there's no misrepresentation involved. That the subject is a spirit is readily apparent from the immediate context, with “that of the antichrist” being identified with “every spirit that does not confess Jesus,” and what is likewise “not from God.” It is pneuma antichristos. We read that it is coming, yet now it is already in the world. According to 2 Thessalonians we are told that the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but yet we still await an arrival, when “shall have come the apostasy first and shall have been revealed the man of lawlessness.”

6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7

This spirit of antichrist is a demonic entity, pneuma antichristos, which may be considered the antithesis of the spirit of Christ, the pneuma christos of Romans 8:9 and 1 Peter 1:11.

After the pattern of the genuine Christ, there must be a man with a body of flesh who will be in relationship to this pneuma antichristos as a host after the anointing (or perhaps “anti-anointing” is more technically correct). We could perhaps extrapolate how he is genetically groomed, bred for this destiny in accordance with the heritage of his father the devil. This man as a custom avatar host with “designer genes” will fully embrace the indwelling of pneuma antichristos as a perfectly prepared vessel. This avatar arrangement will be in the earth a concrete physical manifestation of Satan's power and presence!

Here's the model of the genuine that is about to be counterfeited in John 14's “red letter” testimony.

7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” 8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. ~ John 14:7-11

John's declaration in the following verse echoes Paul's from 2 Thessalonians in identifying the coming of antichrist as a sign, an indicator of the nearness of the end of the age.

Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. ~ 1 John 2:18

The Sign for the Bride - In Revision

I've been updating one of the core studies on theopenscroll.com, on the subject of the sign for the Bride. This update will reflect the expanded insight that has come more recently in this remarkable season. The scope of the project is substantial. Here's what I've got so far.
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + +

The revealing of the lawless one is the controversial subject of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. It can be seen as a sign, because this revealing is presented as a special kind of evidence intended to assure us that the gathering to the Lord, in the Day of the Lord, has not yet happened. When the lawless one is revealed, that will be a sign to some that the ingathering of the Lord's harvest is impending. That cryptic passage of scripture further discloses to the observant student that there is a third element in the sequence of events which is directly related to the two that follow it. All this, we are told, will be shrouded in deception. If you have been paying attention, you will note that what I've written so far conflicts with what you've been taught, if you're like most readers, because even the meaning of this passage has been shrouded, for protection. Let me encourage you to give this important matter the attention it's due, because so much depends upon your not being deceived.

I count this study among the most important on this website! With this complete revision in this very late hour, at the end of March, 2014, I strongly encourage you to give your attention to the full scope of the study. If your custom is to skim the content, I don't recommend it here. It's a substantial document, granted, but worth at least two readings. And, much prayerful meditation. No kidding.

It was in 1988 or 1989 when the Lord pruned me off the religious system and took me as a student at His feet. As He began to deal with me regarding signs of the end times it was immediately apparent that, while I had some useful foundation, I had plenty of unlearning to do. I had been taught and in turn had been teaching the same popular doctrines held to be true by most evangelicals today. As I began to experience the Lord's company as a personal tutor, my wrong thinking about the revealing of the man of sin represented an obstacle beyond which I could not proceed. I needed help, and He provided it! What He taught me back in 1991 about the revealing of the lawless one has been validated many times in many ways. In recent years, and in recent weeks, He has granted more favor into understanding the dynamic surrounding the event, and this revisiting of this study represents a coming full circle that speaks to the lateness of the hour.

Have I mentioned how important this is? Okay. If I could be more emphatic, I would be. Read on. I'm going to demonstrate something very special.

Here's the key passage.

1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. 5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? 6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 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 2:1-12

The sign involves a man who will be revealed in an identifying kind of event. The question of the day will be, “Who is he?” An answer will be presented. This revealing will be attended by supernatural phenomena and mass deception. The Apostle John saw this as a beast rising from the sea (Rev. 13:1), which is presented in other contexts as the return of an ancient god known to some as Apollo, Horus or Quetzalcoatl, as demonstrated in many exhibits on The Open Scroll Blog. What is astounding is how most of the saints will be deceived about his identity, even many of you reading here now.

The signal event is a revealing of a man, but this sign is not intended so much as an alert for the saints that our gathering to the Lord is impending but to give assurance that the appointed harvests of the age have not yet happened. Now, this might seem like a rather peculiar point to make, but it's very important. The signal event is of such a kind that our assurance comes in it's absence. That's a BIG DEAL. This huge insight contradicts popular theories, exposing them as lies that are serving to provide deceptive cover in advance of the critical hour, as the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. While this message does have some relevance in the present time, I've come to understand how it's primarily intended for the very near future - when the Antichrist beast is just about to be revealed. Yet, without having the proper preparation for that season, saints will be deceived, as the scripture reveals.

You should know that some already assert that the resurrection is past. Some even assert that the lawless one has already been revealed. With deep insight into Paul's message, those assertions are easily rejected.

While some suggest that being informed about the demonic nature of aliens is adequate assurance to exempt us from delusion, it is not. Neither is it enough that we might correctly identify the candidates for the two beasts of Revelation 13. And, neither is it sufficient to know the general timeframe when the beast will appear. You may be highly skeptical about these claims I'm making, but the Adversary has some tricks up his sleeve that are going to be very effective. His agents have been spilling the beans as they boast about this plan, validating a message I'm going to illustrate from the depths of 2 Thessalonians 2. If you're still trusting in the recognized church leaders to run point on this, you're in serious jeopardy.

When the critical hour arrives, those of us who have received the love of the truth and who are appointed for that day will have a key role to play, and we will not be deceived. Then will come the harvest, the resurrection events, each in their turn. The false messiah or antichrist will be correctly identified by only a small faction of the Body of Christ, which is why I label this revelatory event the sign for the Bride. She alone will be awake and watching, and God will exempt her from the deluding influence because she does love the Truth. This qualifies her for a special mission, and she will be found worthy at the coming of the Bridegroom for His Bride!

If you're not already familiar with these studies, they are recommended collateral reading.

More Tools and a Bigger Toolbox

For several years I had been under the impression that the Church would collectively be “raptured” without warning, having been schooled in pre-trib rapture doctrine. When the Lord pruned me off the religious system and took me as a student at His feet, I had begun to enjoy a season of being led into one passage after another to find precious insights. Then, I found myself confronted with 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 in a way I was not expecting. I perceived from my confusion that what I had been taught had error but I had no clue about how to resolve the passage. Since insight wasn't immediately forthcoming, my response was to move on, expecting that the Lord might prosper the unraveling of some other passage. I found myself being returned rather directly to 2 Thessalonians 2. After a few cycles it became apparent that I was stuck in a loop. I didn't know what to make of this new twist, so I gave the study a rest. It was maybe a day later when I had an epiphany! He knew I didn't have what it took! He wasn't running me around in circles for no reason. He intended to address my situation and I needed to have confidence in following Him beyond where I had previously been willing to be led. He was prompting me to join Him again at the computer - and so I did! I was eager to continue this marvelous adventure and to break ground where I hadn't yet dared! I needed more tools and a bigger toolbox and that's just what I got!

What the Lord showed me about the unlocking of the secrets of this cryptic passage has to do with context. It's a little technical. The insight is bound up in the way the text was written. Words and phrases repeat in simple ways to create patterns. The Lord's way is to communicate with us through patterns, in His works; in nature as pursued by those interested in the physical sciences, and in His Word, which includes that which is written. These linguistic patterns of thematic structures are found throughout the entire range of biblical text. This feature bears witness to the divine nature of the collection like as if the Author's fingerprints were left all over it! Yet, it is a stunning reality that when presented with plain evidence of the phenomenon it bears no weight of conviction for most folks. Wow! Also, as obvious as it is that the patterns exist, precious few among the saints can perceive that there is, in this surprising manifestation of divine order, anything of value for our instruction. Mind boggling. How can this be? Ahhhhh. The Lord has hidden his valuables. They are well guarded.

It must be said at this point that the difficulty in understanding II Thessalonians is due to the fact that it is cloaked, spiritually. It's not merely difficult but rather impossible to understand unless the Lord opens the eyes and ears. Because it is hidden, the translation from the Greek has suffered at the hands of the translators and confusion has reigned. Because insight is embedded in the linguistic structure, gaining access to it is like digging for buried treasure. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

In this embedding of the interactive presentation in this page, I now invite you to explore according to the directions provided underneath the yellow bar. What you see on display below is the same passage you read earlier, exactly. If you're using a tablet or smartphone you can still interact by touching the bars and lines of text, but this is best explored with a mouse.

* If it doesn't appear on your screen, or if big spaces appear between some of the bars, you might want to see the presentation in a tab or window where it has more room: II Thessalonians 2: 1-12



So, what do we do with that? If this is new to you and you find it a little baffling, please explore Bible Code Revelations - Thematic Patterns Expose Riddles until you're satisfied. Because this particular passage's structure is essential to this important message being taught, I'll walk you through it.

If you hover your mouse over one of the elements in the display, you'll see blue highlighting appear. For many of these, you'll see a companion element highlighted at the same time. This highlighting makes it easy to find and compare the matched elements. Let's pick some of the low hanging fruit, so to speak. Hover over the gray bar just to the left of this line of verse 3: “and the man of lawlessness is revealed.” That line and the first line of verse 8 are both highlighted. “8 Then that lawless one will be revealed.” Almost word for word, what's in verse 3 is repeated in verse 8. Now, move your mouse cursor over the next gray bar down: “the son of destruction” pairs with “whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming.” Although the same words aren't used, it's not hard to see how they compare. Now, move your mouse cursor over the next gray bar down: “4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God” pairs with “9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan.” Again, it's not hard to see how these lines compare.

While there's nothing shockingly profound in those particular pairings, if you meditate upon them you should get a sense of how an awareness of the link between them, knowing their connection is divinely appointed, affords us access to more insight than when we were ignorant of the pairing. See, all things must be understood in context, and when we're able to confidently identify matched elements we have learned something very special about the context. When we're ignorant of the divine pairings inherent in a text we cannot help but to neglect this special provision. Unless the holy spirit specifically calls it out to our attention, we will derive no benefit from these divinely appointed guides for interpretation. I've learned that the Lord expects us to do our part, and that honest effort is required, and rewarded.

Peter makes an interesting point in his second epistle.

15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. ~ 2 Peter 3:15-16

This epistle of 2 Thessalonians is one of Paul's letters. The observation Peter made by the inspiration of the holy spirit is certainly applicable here! If we disrespect the inherent structure, whether with or without knowledge of it and regardless of our intent, distorting the scriptures will naturally result. While it would be silly to argue that any interpretation that has not been derived from a sound structural analysis can be dismissed on that basis, it would be just as silly to suggest that interpretations that conflict with a sound structural analysis is on equal footing with those that do not. Destruction, and conversely, salvation, is, in no small way, dependent upon giving proper respect for what is written and how it is written. It should already be apparent that structural analysis is beneficial, and wisdom dictates that we take advantage of every benefit in this most challenging endeavor.

Now, if you continue exploring the highlighted pairings of the interactive display you'll notice that the other pairings aren't quite so obvious as the “low hanging fruit” in the examples I described. If there weren't some obvious pairings it would be so difficult to discover those that are less obvious. The easy sets help us build the foundation for discovering what kind of structure is present. When you learn to respect the natural symmetry and become familiar with how certain kinds of structures are balanced and woven together, the more difficult pairings become recognizable in relationship with those that are more obvious. We're not just going after random sets of structures in our efforts to break the code, we're going after a cohesive whole, where every word is weighed and set into place.

If we hover the mouse cursor over the bar on the left of the first line in verse 3, “3 Let no one in any way deceive you,” it will be highlighted together with its companion, “5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?” This pairing is slightly less apparent but it can be seen how they both provide some narrative. What Paul was telling them when he was still with the saints in Thessalonica was precautionary, so that they would not be deceived. (We know the message was for them, then, but it will be seen to be prophetic, ultimately intended for another time and people.)

The great benefit of discerning the thematic structure comes in comparing the divinely linked elements. Do you see it? When we have rightly discerned a pairing, we may know with confidence this link has been made with intent, to guide the one who inquires so diligently into the Author's own purposes. If context provides meaning, which it most certainly does, context is very specially identified in this matter of paired elements. The context of one is most particularly its thematic partner. Again, THE CONTEXT OF ONE IS MOST PARTICULARLY ITS THEMATIC PARTNER. You did catch that, right? I don't want to be accused of being too subtle here. One element is provided to shed light on the other. In the case of simple and obvious constructions, the pair may just be provided to guide the student to discover the structure that will expose those gems buried more deeply. In availing ourselves of this special provision of insight into the context, we find ourselves probing the depths of His Word for what the Author might be pleased to grant, as the holy spirit leads the way in this hunt for buried treasure.

With all that said, here's an image of the structure of matching elements in the set we just walked through together, with the pairing I omitted being highlighted to make comparison easy. I saved this pairing for last because it's the most obscure match.


This kind of structure is sometimes referred to as an extended alternation. There are five themes listed, then they are repeated in order, like ABCDE, then A`B`C`D`E`. A simple alternation describes two themes, A and B, repeated in order as A`B`. When a list of 3 or more items is repeated it can be called an extended alternation. I've analyzed enough of the wider scope of the passage to determine that this extended alternation in 5+5 parts is a single unit, which is an important observation because we need to have confidence that it may be considered in isolation. You'll notice how this highlighted pairing departs from the norm. This is not the familiar one line match to another of roughly similar word count or structure. This calls attention to the pairing because it stands out as unique. Let's give this matter some thought. If you need to break for some coffee or tea, I'll wait. ;)

Ready? Okay. Let's ask the hard question. How do these components compare? We know they do because we've analyzed the structure. This is what the Lord brought me to so memorably, for the purpose of discovering and resolving this riddle. This is why He put me in a loop by causing me to return to this passage until I was adequately confronted with my inability to grasp the real meaning. This is why He invited me back when I realized He was going to teach me something new, providing a tool that could be used to mine for the deeply buried treasure. So, how do these components compare? If you have been trained in the doctrines of devils, like I had in my excursion through Mystery Babylon, your mind will go flying on auto-pilot while navigating some convoluted distortions - and find no satisfactory resolution. When you set all that aside, if you're able, and with fresh eyes let the scripture interpret itself in context, with respect to the divinely paired elements, you're going to be led into some startling revelation! What I laid out in the lengthy introduction to this study was not speculative but based upon some special insight. Access is denied, to most, but granted to a few.

What does apostasy, a falling away, rebellion or revolt, according to the rendering of popular versions, have to do with anything verses 6 and 7 have to offer? Honestly, nothing. There is a whole lot of confusion swirling about and you're going to have to take a fresh look at it. If you're not willing to do some unlearning, you're in the wrong place - this is not for you. There's plenty more about verses 1-12 that needs to be factored in eventually, but this is where we must begin, with the Greek word, “apostasia.” We're going to work toward the end of understanding how one thematic element matches the other and guides us to the meaning the Author has buried like great treasure.

The Greek word being translated is apostasia, Strong's G646. According to that scholarly authority, it means “Forsake: "an apostasy, defection, revolt," always in NT of religious defection, is translated "to forsake" in Act 21:21, lit., "(thou teachest) apostasy (from Moses);" in 2 Th 2:3, "falling away." ” According to Vines Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, "a defection, revolt, apostasy," it means, “Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:” and “is used in the NT of religious apostasy; in Act 21:21, it is translated "to forsake," lit., "thou teachest apostasy from Moses." In 2Th 2:3 "the falling away" signifies apostasy from the faith. In papyri documents it is used politically of rebels.” Well, that's all pretty consistent and plain, right? Yet, there's error in it. I don't dispute that the word is used politically of rebels in papyri documents, but that's not how it's used in 2 Thessalonians, which is not political. The translation of apostasia as “falling away” is pretty fair, but when that is taken by extension to mean “religious apostasy,” a grievous error has been made.

Who am I to insist that the recognized authorities are in error here? Someone who chose to cease from arguing with the Author about what it is He really said and meant. I also happen to be someone to whom the Lord revealed the celestial sign of His return in judgment, to be frank about it. Stick with me here, I'm going to provide some simple evidence to back my assertion, and this will open access into the real meaning, in context. It will be seen that the Lord Himself has hidden this matter to achieve his higher purposes.

The Greek word apostasia is a positional word that simply describes a “standing away from.” Men, do the homework, your due diligence, and make up your own mind about it. You can easily discover that apostasia is the feminine form of the neuter gender, apostasion (G647). This is from a derivative of aphistemi (G868). That word is composed of apo (G575) and histemi (G2476). Look at the meanings provided, the uncolored basis.

How do they get religious apostasy from apostasia? It's imported, from foreign contexts. The 3 occurrences of apostasion in the Bible simply deal with divorce, where a husband and wife are separated, put apart, where one party then stands away from the other in positional relationship. This is just how apostasia should be understood, but it's not used in the context of the marriage relationship. Aside from our passage in 2 Thessalonians 2, the word is found in only one other place.

and they have been told about you, that you are teaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs. ~ Acts 21:21

If you can justify painting the word with additional meaning and transmitting it into 2 Thessalonians 2, you can probably justify claims that the apostasy of the church is somehow involved as a sign - but that's a bad thing. Very, very bad. When you see how this develops, it should become apparent that, while the church is most certainly apostate, the notion makes no sense whatsoever in 2 Thessalonians 2. The importing of the notion of apostasy, revolt or rebellion actually negates the message and renders the passage nonsensical. The word in context presents something altogether different, which is quite stunning as an exhibition of the Master's work of concealing and revealing!


With the structure of the focal passage already having been discerned with confidence, we have the advantage of knowing the context. We know which pond to fish in. The thematic companions are intended to shed light on each other. Verses 6 and 7 are going to help us understand this cryptic positional relationship that is apostasia and explain how this helps us understand it as a sign. Well, if only verses 6 and 7 weren't equally cryptic. Now what? We will do what we have done, looking at the words used and letting them interpret themselves in the context. But that's not enough. We've reached the point where more help is required. Revelation insight - there's no substitute. An understanding of the nature of the subject is required. The only chapter and verse I can offer on this matter is from John 16.

12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. ~ John 16:12-13

The secret to understanding the sign is in recognizing how this revealing is modeled on another. This lawless one will be an impostor. Known also as the Antichrist, he will claim the identity of the true messiah. He's a fraud, a poser, a mimic. An anti - christ is not just against Christ but is opposite Christ, in the sense of a likeness as a kind of counterpart, a counterfeit. The word “Christ” is the same as Messiah, literally meaning anointed. Jesus literally became the Christ when he was anointed, which occurred during his baptism. That's what revealed him, as the Christ, as I'll illustrate shortly. Because a counterfeit is modeled on a genuine, there must come a similitude, an anointing with a counterpart of unholy spirit in a ceremonial baptism that serves to reveal him. With this insight, the thematic components of interest in 2 Thessalonians 2 will be seen to make perfect sense! What is being described in verses 6 and 7 is the unseen dynamic. It supplements the descriptions of the “seen” activity in the adjacent context. The word apostasia neatly encapsulates the description of the unseen activity in its thematic companion. Sure, the Author could have told us all this in a straightforward way, but that wouldn't serve His purposes. It is hidden by intent. If at some point, you get it, rejoice, friend!

As He said these things, He would call out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” 9 His disciples began questioning Him as to what this parable meant. 10 And He said, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. ~ Luke 8:8b-10

Decoding - Sweet Dreams P&G

Nearly a month ago, the Sweet Dreams Collection™ was introduced by Proctor and Gamble. (Press release: A Great Night’s Sleep Starts in the Laundry Room with the New Sweet Dreams Collection®) A few years ago I was led to write a lengthy document titled, Pharmaceuticals -The Sorceries of Babylon, which has been one of the most visited pages on theopenscroll.com. When you give consideration to the influence chemicals have that are ingested in water, foods and pills, breathed in and absorbed through the skin, the sum is considerable. For several years, I've been very sensitive in particular to laundry products. There's something in most of them that I can sense when I get within a couple aisles of where these are sold in a market. What I use on my clothing and bedding I've had to be very cautious about. What might be in the lavender scented concoction or potion used by P&G is probably something special. Given the occult signaling, A Laundry Lullaby just can't be good.

Here's 3 short commercials.

A Laundry Lullaby from Downy - :15 Second Commercial

At the end of the day its so hard to unwind
But Downey Sweet Dreams can help turn off your mind.
It has soothing scent and makes fabric so soft
that you can tuck in, relax and finally turn off.


Should we let them help turn off the mind? What enchanting poetry.

The enchantress wears a purple dress, a sodomite gateway signal color. The pattern is a familiar variant of mark of the beast “circle X” imagery - CODE MOB.


P&G is an Olympic Partner - Zeus-Satan worshiping. Can you spot the obfuscated concentric 666 in their ribbon logo? “Worldwide Partner” = Code 33! (W is a rotated 3 and the value of P is 11. WP = 33) During the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, they featured sulphur smell (demonic manifestation) in the stadium, plus other fragrances on the May Poles that I am pretty sure was augmented, stimulating the olfactory nerves to enhance the ritual enchantment.

If you haven't seen the film, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, you may want to because what is illustrated has some truth in it about the power of “aroma therapy” workings.

One of the “good works” so-called of the Sweet Dreams Collection promotion involves a pledge.


That's an incitement to sin.

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
~ James 5:12

Sweet Dreams. Lavender. Oh, it seems so nice. It's not that I don't trust P&G, because I do. I trust they will serve their god with every means at their disposal.

Have you seen this video I made a couple years ago? The HE or High Efficiency logo is a Horus Eye symbol. It complements the sun imagery that is such a natural element in detergent branding. Few suspect the breach of the 2nd commandment has any consequences. It does.

Built on the Rock or Sand?

In this season I see many saints struggling, and stumbling, having failed to prepare themselves adequately. How will we fare when the greater season of trial breaks upon us? Many of us have squandered this season that has been granted to us by much mercy and grace.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” 28 When Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were amazed at His teaching; 29 for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes. ~ Matthew 7:24-29

To hear these words of His and not act on them is to build your house upon the sand. Folks, such a flood is coming that will test our foundations. By all accounts, as I've been reporting, in a little less than 2 months time, we're due. I believe one reason why folks are failing already is because of what's called to our attention in verse 28, the matter of the crowds being amazed at his manner of teaching, as one with authority. Today, crowds accustomed to hearing our current versions of the scribes are still amazed when someone speaks with the Lord's authority. Being amazed is a noting of the difference, but that response does not indicate that faith is involved. The houses that have been built upon the sand that will soon fall have been built by those among us who hear His words, but yet do not act on them. If this is you, odds are, you won't even realize it. As I've written, based upon the principles of the Keys to Developing a Hearing Ear, when you hear and don't act on what is heard you are diminished in faith, suffering a reduction in the ability to hear, and you will not perceive it.

Aaron and I have been bearing witness to what's coming, and calling you to repentance, collectively and individually as we have ministered through more personal communications. Some of you respond with an evident building upon the Rock, and this is most encouraging, and others reveal the sand your house has been built upon.

I posted video today that was inspired by the strong sense of how destruction is looming ahead for many of us, and what was revealed for us to the Apostle Peter. He wrote the following about our brother Paul's writing.

15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. ~ 2 Peter 3:15-16

Most saints disrespect the word delivered through those sent to minister among them today, as with sound teaching about how to build your foundation upon the written Word. I've given attention to the matter before, and much of it has fallen on deaf ears. (Bible Code Revelations - Thematic Patterns Expose Riddles) I do it again, knowing it will mostly fall on deaf ears. The appointed watch day in 2008, which was so epic for the learning of the key pattern identifying to me that this is the target Shemitah for the close of the age, was spent almost entirely in John 13, in the study of thematic patterns. It was time spent with the Lord, and well spent.

I pray you will find in this presentation some inspiration to seek the Lord about your own attitude toward his Word, your respect for His authority, your action on what is heard and your state of readiness for what is ahead.

Decoding Angry Orchard

Angry Orchard Hard Cider. Why is the orchard angry? Here's their commercial, with threatening symbolism that has a very relevant story to tell. Angry Orchard - Decoded



The apple with a bite being taken with a crunching sound is a symbol of the forbidden fruit being eaten by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The orchard is the Garden of Eden. The dangerous gnarly old apple tree is the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which is associated with the Nachash, the serpent.

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



Search the blog for apple crunch and you'll see how the sin in the garden was celebrated in London at the Paralympics in 2012, during the closing ceremony that was titled, Illumination. Apple Computers has the same scheme, connecting the apple with a bite out of it with illumination.


Is that tree and those branching trees of that Garden-Orchard angry? Yes!


8 They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14 The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And dust you will eat
All the days of your life;
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
~ Genesis 3:8-15

The apple has seed in it, so it represents his seed. This is why a bite is taken out of the apple in the commercial, and that bite is immediately followed by "branch out." That's what happened in the garden because of what happened when Eve ate the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. She became enlightened and she conceived, later bearing Cain. (Who is Cain's Father?)


The logo features the name of Ra (Re), aka Helios, Apollo, Horus.

Why is the orchard angry?

For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.” ~ Revelation 12:12

Does the Devil know his time is short? No, not yet. But he will, soon enough.

The second Psalm describes the angry orchard.

The trees of that kind intend to follow through on what began in the Garden of Eden. The plot to replace man who was still in the Creator's image was nearly complete when the great flood of Noah's day purged his orchard from the face of the earth.

21 All flesh that moved on the earth perished, birds and cattle and beasts and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth, and all mankind; 22 of all that was on the dry land, all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died. 23 Thus He blotted out every living thing that was upon the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky, and they were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark. ~ Genesis 7:21-23

He's bent on revenge for that action, intending a counter-flood. Coming soon!

Part 14 - Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 - A Modern Classic of Greek Tragedy


* Note: Find links to relevant clips and to the Official streaming video of the ceremonies on the Series Links page above.

During the opening segment of the closing ceremony featured in Part 13, the emphasis is upon the activity that culminates in the appearance of the 5th ring, toward which anticipation had been deliberately built since the opening ceremony. The opening of the 5th ring represents the incarnation of Apollo in the earth, as laid out in Part 1. The love affair between the fallen angel sons of god and the earthly daughters of men is played in this segment of the ceremony like a comedic clown led fishing expedition, but the theatrical production in the Olympic Stadium is far more of a Greek tragedy than a Greek comedy. While the people-fish enact the ritual of the 5th ring, here's what was offered by the commentators.

People around the globe watching the closing ceremonies from Sochi. Well, they had a mishap in Vancouver in the opening ceremony and they poked fun at it in the closing ceremony and the same thing happened here. The producers have a sense of humor. - They certainly do. Laughing at yourself is important.

Clowns are in the boat and more clowns are calling the play-by-play. Really, the producers are having a huge laugh at our expense! Knowing what I know about the show, I cannot watch the video without getting choked up and tears coming to my eyes. What I see is not at all funny. It's so utterly tragic. Judgement has been pronounced against this and all such activity, which is done under that very universal label of Babylon, the great harlot, the great city.

21 Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer. 22 And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; 23 and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.” ~ Revelation 18:21-24

The blood of the prophets and of saints has already been spilled, and is being spilled today, but many more will yet be slain on the earth before that prophesied end comes when Babylon is thrown down with violence. Few connect that entity with the spectacle that appears so wondrous in our world. Oh, the deceitfulness of sin.

With more symbolic elements to be put on exhibit from this public ritual and Occult messaging vehicle, we continue from Part 13. The cadre of white robed and flashlight shining angels that joined the star sailors in the sky had already been seen in the stadium, in another form, when fireworks fell into the stadium. The fireworks pictured shooting stars, falling stars, and stars are angels in biblical metaphor. The meaning of the shooting stars falling among the light rods is that of the angels falling from the heavens to the earth, transiting the celestial stargate. (See Part 39 - Celestial Stargates - Light Rods, Tinsel and Pleats)

While the stars were still falling the Jester Captain Apollo was waving the net around in the air above the boat, not below where fish would be swimming.


What sense does that make? Was he just clowning around, fishing for butterflies? No, he was miming the catching of angels as the fireworks fell like stars from the sky.

A commentator offered a hypnotic NLP suggestion, exclaiming: “I'll tell you the first time I saw this sea I was standing up and I could feel myself wobbling just a little bit. [laughing] It's amazingly realistic.” What happens when you are standing up and you wobble too much? You fall down, of course.

When the 5th ring was formed, fireworks filled the stadium with explosions of light and sound.




The triumphant return of Apollo was being celebrated by the audience with enthusiastic cheering and applause. In that powerful ritual we may glean what is meant by fireworks, the starburst pyrotechnics that have become so much a part of Olympic celebrations. They represent the celestial luminaries, fallen angels, including and especially Apollo. (Revelation 9)

Apollo's return will be celebrated as modeled when the 5th ring opened in the Stadium. His reception will be celebrated wildly in the heavens and on earth. The official explanation for the logo's rings is that they represent the five continents of the world, united by Olympism. Olympism has everything to do with Apollo. The four rings were formed first and interlocked with one another, which is to say that the world will be fully prepared and in a state of readiness to receive what will complete them. This is achieved with that final ring, the 5th or Horus ring that signifies their Olympian champion, incarnate.

Look at those images. The illuminating angels are above. The obedient people-fish are below, acting as a collective with a hive mind. The cheering stadium crowd is oblivious but ecstatic, and universal in their approval. All, volunteers and sponsoring agents. What a spectacle! What a grand and potent magickal ritual for the harvesting of energy! What an offense to the Most High God! How do you feel about that, copper-top?

The numbering of the projectors responsible for the dimensional painting of the deep was announced to be 60 + 60, which reduces to a 66, the number to which the Occult assigns the meanings of the abyss and the shades of the dead, the Rephaim. That's the esoteric setting, right?

The 120 in total speaks to me of the famous warning pronounced 120 years in advance of the great flood of Noah's day, when the fountains of the great deep (abyss) burst open. I think we can and should connect the dots, especially because of where we are in this target Shemitah week that is interlocked with the millennial week. The alignments of the 120 year warning and the great flood loom dead ahead. The warning was given 1536 years from Adam, which maps to around the 1st or 2nd of April. We live in extraordinary times!

When the introductory countdown video began, the very first scene featured a falling angel and Silver Gate transit scene. Here's a screenshot.


Here's what I believe is being modeled.


This scene seems to be alluding to the meteor that fell to the earth in Chelyabinsk on February 15, 2013. That happened during the daytime, not at night. Note the subtle 33 - Code 33 - in the pillar of snow. Brilliant. Sneaky buggers. What followed after that scene in the video countdown was more scenes of dimensional transits!

The people-fish have transdimensional style clothing. Biblically, clothing is often witnessing on the esoteric level to different kinds of resurrection bodies. I've written about some of the allegorical prophetic verses, like Acts 12:8, where Peter was equipped to pass through the iron gate of the prison as out of this earthly realm in resurrection. (That's still one of my very favorite passages!) Such clothing or bodies are sometimes identified with metals. (Psalm 45:9) These people-fish performing in the stadium are costumed with shimmering silver sequin robes. They resemble fish with glistening scales, but more than that, they picture transhumans, those transformed to receive multidimensional metallic light bodies. Think of them as Nachash suits, shimmering serpentine bodies.

The red shoes signal that they were of Adam-kind, with “Adam” meaning “red.” They also signal their ability to traverse the dimensional barrier, to "go over the rainbow" and return like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz with her coveted ruby slippers. These were for dimensional transit. The Wicked Witch of the West had her broom to fly. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, had her bubble for transport. The Wicked Witch of the East was grounded by the house that fell from the sky, quite literally. She wore ruby slippers. Dorothy, who fell from the star named Kansas, meaning “People of the South Wind,” flew in on a whirlwind, becoming the Witch of the South. This observation illustrates the presence of all four elemental cardinal directions that provides for the necessary balance in witchcraft. The ruby slippers magically teleported from the feet of one witch to another, from the East to the South. Boots are made for walkin', and so are slippers. What did Dorothy do with the coveted magickal transport facilitators? First, she did a lot of walking, on the yellow brick road that was a picture of a stargate. Finally, she was instructed by the Witch of the North how to operate them properly. When Dorothy clicked her Ruby Slipper heels together and chanted the magical incantation, “There's no place like home,” she was transported back to the home star from which she had fallen, Kansas, escorted by Toto, her dog (star Sirius) psychopomp.

When the commentator describes the scene in the stadium, saying, “A cast of over 5000 volunteers, some below and now some above,” he's referencing a very important symbol number to spill some beans. As I wrote about the miracle of the feeding of the 5000, the number represents the entire population of the world. The description of the scene evokes the Hermetic Maxim, the quantum entangled principle being ritually operated during this magickal ceremony, and it symbolically connects the angels above with the people-fish below, who are connected, bound together, bridging both realms of the earthly and heavenly: The sons of god, joined with the daughters of men, descending and ascending together to merge on the ladders of DNA.

With the oh-so-appropriate triumphant music selected from Tiomkin's Hollywood enchantments playing in the background, the illuminated people-fish form a throbbing infinity and Ouroboros symbol - celebrating the achievement of immortal life in their eternal Zion. (Epic Fail!) They form an oval of serpentine bands, like collections of 33 - 33 - 33 for the expression of Code 33.

The commentary weaves in some more NLP:

“It's some pretty fabulous lifetime memories for those kids, huh? With this kid too!”

Kids are young goats. Contrast them with sheep, in biblical metaphor. Lifetime memories, imprinted in their DNA.

The “kids” below form a wavy star with 10 arms, then merge contrasting dark-light versions into one with 5 arms - Horus. This branched assembly weaves into the rings logo. We see the people forming the star, the global population becoming the star-angel. This is the pyramid body of the beast kingdom that will soon be pictured redundantly as the rings form. The wavy dynamic star is also signaling the anal vortex of the sodomite gateway. How do we know for sure?

On cue, we hear:

“I was in the bowels of the stadium for the opening ceremony and as the volunteers came off during their part, they would literally jump into each others' arms celebrating that they had accomplished what they had set out do and it was great to see that their Olympic moment was taking place on that stage. - Being part of one of the great shows on earth.”

He was in the bowels. That's graphic. Jumping into each others' arms. Connect that with what was then being enacted on stage. The line, “as the volunteers came off during their part” sexually references the sodomizing SRA handler's role, and the victims, too, as they are brought to dissociation and illumination through trauma and with demonic installation. The illumination of ritual sodomy is celebrated, and it is that action that facilitates the coming of Apollo. He will be welcomed into this world that has long been prepared through that perverse mechanism of binding the sons of god with the daughters of men. This scheme has been the focus of thousands of years, and of thousands of hours of effort on this blog as I've brought myriad dark symbolic examples into the light.

What do you suppose is really happening in the bowels of the stadium? Have you considered what's on exhibit here? Decoding Taylor Swift's "22" and the BMA Ritual Exposing the Theater of Witchcraft. Before, during and after, rituals are performed in private that support what happens during mass public ritual. These may take place on-site, or off-site, or both. Like how the saints gather to pray about events, covering them with prayer, those in the Enemy's camp covertly engage in their ceremonial sex magick and blood sacrifice, casting various kinds of spells for the raising and harvesting and channeling of demonic energy toward various ends. A huge focus is on the incarnation of their champion, but intermediary objectives must also be met. Have you read Ezekiel 8 lately? Backstage worship of the sun god is not new.

I invite you to watch the clip of this Time Travel segment again, and seek the Lord about what you're really looking at, until He opens it to you. It's horrific. This is what Zeus worship looks like.
