The “Barren Land”…

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places* seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’” Luke 11:24 (*sometimes translated “arid places“)

“…But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.” Psalm 68:6

“And in the columns of heaven I beheld fires, which descended without number, but neither on high, nor into the deep. Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it; nor anything on wing; but the spot was desolate.
And there I beheld seven stars, like great blazing mountains, and like spirits entreating me. Then the angel said, This place, until the consummation of heaven and earth, will be the prison of the stars, and the host of heaven. The stars which roll over fire are those which transgressed the commandment of God before their time arrived; for they came not in their proper season. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year.” 1 Enoch 18:13-16

(another version says ” And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no birds, but it was a waste and horrible place.”)

I have for a while now been a fan of Round Saturn’s Eye and his videos, (and continue to be, finding validity in both his personal testimony and confession of the Gospel), and there is one theme that pops up very frequently in his material, which just recently became a lot more clear to me.

He is constantly mentioning this idea/imagery of the “barren land“. He talks about it again and again and again and again, often times when breaking down the embedded symbolism in some commercial or movie or Olympic ceremony, or whatever, whenever some kind of desert-looking, salt-flats type of scenery is being shown. And it’s amazing how often this occurs, these shots of very Luciferian and nephilim related themes, constantly being filmed with a backdrop of this barren, desert landscape. And after a while, I was really starting to wonder, what is the deal with this “barren land” stuff, what is that supposed to symbolize?

Well recently when I was reading back through the chapters of 1 Enoch, (in the interest of seeing more of what it has to say regarding flat Earth ideas or “Enochian cosmology” etc.), I was reading that portion in the 18th chapter, where it is talking about when Enoch is being shown the place where the fallen Watchers are to be imprisoned until the Day of Judgement (“until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year…”)

Suddenly the light bulb clicked on. I immediately thought of that verse where Jesus casts the evil spirit out of the mute man, and then uses the parable of tying up a strong man in a house, to explain about how demons leave a person, and then “travel through arid places”, before coming back to the cleaned “house” (person), this time bringing along seven more spirits more evil than itself.

That verse has always been one of those ones that just made very little sense to me, where eventually you just shrug your shoulders and move on, figuring that well, Jesus obviously knows what he’s talking about, so, okay!

I had always been really confused by what “arid places” could mean, or why Jesus would say it like that, if he was describing sort of how a demon would just “fly around in the air” after being cast out. Were demons bound to dry air? Were they somehow pulled towards the desert? Hmmmm. Of course, that’s not what any of us who believe in the reality of demonic spirits would realistically think, because we logically we understand that these spirits are bound within a certain dimensional barrier somehow. They don’t literally fly through the physical air molecules like a mist, prowling for people to inhabit.

But here again, this “barren land” realization is part of a larger theme I’ve been exploring lately, involving this broader question of there being “places” in a dimensional sense.

Most of us who believe in some form of spirituality are probably already likely to believe in this already, on some conceptual level at least. I’d say that I more or less always did, but I suppose it is only now that I am beginning to stretch my imagination further, in pondering just how much this dimensional aspect may permeate our reality, our entire universe…

We tend to think of other “dimensions” as being a fairly ethereal thing. At least I’d say I did. But maybe now that I’ve been taking a much more serious look into things like the concept of the “firmament”, or the idea of the stars themselves being both a physical aspect of our Created world, and also, somehow, attached to luminous, angelic beings. The “multidimensional universe”… This concept has taken such a hold of me. My whole comprehension of the distinctions between what we call “physical”, and what we call “spirit”, seems so much more complex, and yet, so much simpler at the same time now.

In the Book of Enoch, he basically describes being taken up into the heavens, where he talks about walls being built of “crystal stones”, and “portals” (basically doorways) and rings and pillars of fire, etc. He sees mountains made of gems and fountains in the deep, etc., and He sees the very throne of God. The “desolate place” where the Watchers and spirits are imprisoned, is described as having no water in it, as well as no water OVER it either. I find that very interesting. It propels this notion that the firmament over our own place of existence does indeed have water OVER it. This actually makes a lot of sense, when we think about the Great Flood and other things, and I have also wondered if the “sea of glass” or “sea of crystal” described in Revelation and elsewhere, doesn’t in fact pertain to something going on at the top of firmament…(!?) It’s very weird, but also very thrilling too, to start thinking of all these possibilities in a more literal, yet “multi-dimensional” way.

I suppose the reason this would be of any real practical significance for us, at least while we’re still on this side of eternity, is when considered in the context of all that is progressing in the World right now, in terms of things like CERN, and the Luciferian agenda, etc. The Bible speaks of a time where the events are so incredible, amazing, and terrifying, that men essentially become paralyzed with fear.
I do believe that part of keeping our Faith in the times ahead, involves taking a deep look at the scriptures and at least being willing to keep an open mind towards a broader cosmology that might be a far cry from the traditional modernistic, dichotomous mentality that mainstream Evangelicalism has held, particularly in the last century or two. We need to be in such a place as to not be surprised or overwhelmed by whatever crazy or mind-blowing things may transpire in the coming times. We should be able to stand firm, and unmoved, even if we WERE to witness things as fantastic and frightening as the spiritual veil being torn, and entities from the dimensional realm of the “barren land” being unleashed upon our own plane of earthly existence for a short time.

I do believe this is what they have been conspiring FOR, all these millennia. It was the Bible prophecies will take place, when it speaks of Apollo, or Abaddon, coming up out the Abyss, out of the “pit”, with his hordes. It a very real place, this desolate land…

It’s gonna get weird, folks. But we should not be shocked or dismayed by any of it. The scriptures tell us who the victor is, who is the King over heaven and earth, death and hades, over every dimension, every creature, every spirit. We know Who will judge all, when the Books are opened, and the dead are raised, and we look forward to that Day…
