“To whom are the cryptic messages you speak about directed? Are they simply evidence that their evil authors are thumbing their collective nose at the undiscerning rest of us? Or are they designed to trigger abused individuals to act or not act according to programming? ”
My response: “These things you ask have been the subject of many prayers and my thoughts and conclusions (and Aaron's, too) have been written in many posts and expressed in many videos. The reasons for these symbols and the messages that are implicit in the symbols used are diverse. Theurgy explains a lot of it, from one perspective. It's required in the service of their gods. It is the mechanism of mass mind control, and specific programming codes can also be involved. There are spells of various kinds, and cover spells are a major part of the matter. Sorcery. Pharmakeia. ”
“The target on an individual level is your spirit, soul and body. There is an energy transfer in the mechanics of the process. That may sound new-agey but it's actually a legitimate dynamic. Demonic energy is spirit, and there is a life force that is drained from or poured into a person. Thoughts and memories and emotions and behaviors are controlled, unless there is an immunity involved, as when people are freed from the influence, supernaturally. ”
“On some level, the messaging layer of the symbol language is a thumbing of the nose at the victims, and it's also one individual or group giving a wink and a nod to others. Bragging rights are involved.”
That was my response. There's so much more that could be said, and if you really want to understand more, explore our posts and videos. It's all about the "show and tell." That's how we communicate about the supernaturally crafted occult visual and audible imagery of our world, what it is and what it means, what it does.
I've been reflecting more lately on how we are continually being sold conflicting versions of things in this culture. "Magic is all just illusion." In contrast, "Magic is real and it changes reality." "Men, be more like women." "Men, be more manly." "Life is really material." On the other hand, "Life is really spiritual." One way to describe it is with the term, cognitive dissonance. The struggle to hold two contrary ideas at the same time. The double angled pitch engenders confusion, an unsound mind, a kind of insanity that limits and targets faith, hope and love. There is a struggle with belief and disbelief and suspension of disbelief, which is not the same as belief. The dynamic is key to the control in this spell casting form of pharmakeia.
How do we defend ourselves against this evil assault on our minds and emotions, our sanity, our faith, hope and love? We need the Lord's help. We need the help we get as we cry out to Him and He pours out His great favor. That's the most important thing that Aaron and I know to do. Alongside that, practice obedience, with humility. Get with His program. Entirely. And yes, you will need all the help you can get for that. What this will look like as it manifests in your life is variable, depending on the Lord's personal agenda for you at this moment. To get it right, get it from Him in real time. As you learn to walk this way, your life will become a rich adventure of discovery. You will discover the spiritual gifts that attend the holy spirit in service to Him and for Him that are like the expertly cut facets of the most brilliant gem. You may find yourself in seasons of isolation, yet, at other times, having gained treasured family relationships that transcend lineage and culture. These will also transcend time. There is in this way of walking in love on the narrow and narrowing path what is most satisfying, the realization of our Lord Y'shua's becoming more intimately familiar and near in presence. While He withdraws at times to a distance where you have room to develop some steel in your character, these seasons never last. When you arrive at the place where you know He is Himself the prize, the greatest reward, you have caught on to something rare and most precious!
Aaron and I continue to marvel as the Lord extends His favor and blessing to us and to our spiritual family. How immeasurably good He is to us! The road we travel seems impossibly hard, and to persist and endure is far beyond us, yet every honest appraisal of the Lord's provision echoes in our spirits - it is enough.

18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. ~ Ephesians 1:18-23
1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. ~ Ephesians 2:1-7
14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. ~ Ephesians 3:14-21
