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…

Portal of Heaven and the Last Days “Endgame”…?

Okay, so fair warning, this post might be a bit of a doozy for a number of readers to digest, but basically in this I am simply going to attempt to lay out a concept/question that I have been “chewing on” for some time now.

ladder2I have already written a few posts about the topic of portals and the possible connection to things like CERN, and as these kinds of ponderings have continued to seemingly flesh themselves out more and more as time has passed, it has brought me to wonder about how it might all connect to what the Bible describes as taking place in the Last Days, particularly in connection to the anti-Christ and the mysterious “abomination that causes desolation”.

When we start looking into the matter of inter-dimensional “portals”, or gateways between the physical spiritual realms, and how there is a lot of evidence to suggest that certain locations on Earth might be understood to be places where the veil is “thinner”, or even “poked through” to some degree, such as speculations about Mt. Graham (as discussed by researchers Cris Putnam and Tom Horn), or many, many other parts of the world, the one that has continually piqued my curiosity is the question of there being some kind of connection to the famous story of “Jacob’s Ladder” in the Bible.

In Genesis 28:10-17 it says, “Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”

symbolism_symbolic_jacobs_ladder_william_blake_postcard-rd971d8205eb34ab2a0ab0ac9fc92ee20_vgbaq_8byvr_324Many people have already pointed to this passage as an example of a “portal”, a spiritual gateway, and I think rightly so. From the Biblical description it would seem that it is not just any portal either, but one which actually leads “up” to the very throne of God Himself.

Now… Bear with me for a moment while I jump to another tidbit of information which I came across a little while ago, which very much seemed to correlate to this whole discussion. I was listening to the Conspirinormal podcast a couple months ago, where they interviewed the author Tracy Twyman. Twyman started out as a researcher of secret societies and esoteric “stuff”, who eventually concluded that the common thread of all secret societies was that they were in contact with spiritual entities (a conclusion I would affirm). However, (and sadly, I would opine), she wound up using ouji boards to start contacting entities herself, and contact them she did. Two of the main entities she has interacted with are named “Cain” and “Baphomet” (and from my perspective, you shouldn’t need much more evidence than that alone to see these entities are in fact demonic…) and have relayed a host of information about the “forgotten history” of the world and many other things. The Bible calls this “didache demonoia”. Doctrines of demons. (so for anyone who might be wondering, please know I am not regarding such information as anything but that).

Yet, I must say that I found it quite fascinating to hear what she began to describe at around the 112 minute mark, where she speaks of what Cain, (and even an entity calling itself “Satan”) has to say about the “End of Days”. Essentially, (and I’m paraphrasing here) what they taught her was that the universe (in all of it’s dimensions/realms) is held together by a sort of central “pole”, an “axis”, which functions like a central pillar, keeping the realms separate and more or less holding the “structure” of the cosmos in place. She tells how from what she can gather, the basic goal of these “entities” (i.e. demons, fallen angels…) who are currently imprisoned in the “lower realm”, is to somehow collapse this pillar, and remove the separation between all the realms and actually storm heaven itself, take over the New Jerusalem, and put themselves on the throne.

Now, the reason I found this so telling was that after researching various occult concepts/teachings for several years now, I have to say it actually fits right in with so much of what I have encountered elsewhere, not to mention it actually fits quite nicely with what I find being described in much of Biblical prophecy as well…

Okay, so let’s throw in a third trajectory. The other vein of research which also seems to tie in with all of this is simply the broader question of the New World Order “endgame”. The Bible itself declares that the anti-Christ will crown himself as a “god” before the whole Earth, and set up an “image of the Beast” commanding the whole world to worship it, in the Holy of Holies… This is of course why so many Christians looking into Bible Prophecy are very fixed on the issue of watching to see if/when the Third Temple is finally rebuilt in Jerusalem. Traditionally, Bible prophecy has regarded this event from the perspective of it’s blasphemous characteristics, the idea of doing something profane in the “Holy of Holies” in the temple. More recent speculations have looked into possible connections between the “image of the Beast” and some kind of A.I. entity/creation. (see Gonz’s fantastic documentary Age of Deceit 2: Alchemy and the Rise of the Beast Image)

That being said, the more I have looked into the pieces/trails of all the “tentacles” of the NWO octopus, the more we so much of it pointing back to Luciferian elements operating behind the superficial motivations of political Zionism, and indeed this makes sense, if as the Bible says, the AC ultimately will set up a “throne” in Jerusalem itself and reign from there as the capitol of his unholy global empire. But is that it? Is that as far as Satan wants to go? Simply reigning over humanity and the rest of the Earth, or does he want more…?

Isaiah 14 says of Lucifer, the fallen star…

“How you have fallen from heaven,
morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
You said in your heart,
I will ascend to the heavens;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High
.”
But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,
to the depths of the pit.”

So what I am basically wondering about at this stage is this: What if this final “phase” of the Enemy’s agenda involves more than just setting up a physical global empire, more than the idolatrous worship of Lucifer in place of God in a rebuilt earthly temple, and even more than the opening up of a portal(s) between the “underworld” or “bottomless pit”, the “prison cube”, and the realm in which humanity lives. Wouldn’t there also be the attempt to not only stop here, but charge their way into the highest of the heavens, to the very Throne of God, and finish carrying out the “angelic coup” they originally started way back in the early dawn of earth’s history?

Could the abomination of desolation, as described in the Book of Daniel, perhaps be some kind of advanced form of the kind of thing being developed at CERN right now, (part ritual, part technology…), the opening of a spiritual portal which rocks the foundations of the Creation itself, (causing “desolation”…?) which Satan himself, through the figure of his “savior” the AC, opens up in order to try and invade the real Holy of Holies…?

worldtree

This concept of a “world tree”, or “axis mundi”, is one that is absolutely ubiquitous throughout shamanic and esoteric traditions. It is found in ancient religious systems from Asia to the Middle East to early tribal Europe to the Americas. It is a very central theme of Wicca, the New Age movement, and Kabbalah. In short, in every “school” of spiritual learning where people are being taught by the demonic, this concept of a central “tree” or “pillar” or “axis” shows up again and again. It would seem that the fallen entities are in fact quite obsessed with it.

And so, if there was indeed at least some fraction of truth behind this concept (as usually there is within all occult teaching, albeit in a twisted and misrepresented form) then it would actually make a lot of sense as to why Lucifer and his underlings would be so fixated on getting access to it, forcing it open, as if it were akin to the “central elevator shaft” of the entire cosmos. And, if the vision beheld by Jacob really was a glimpse of that “central connector” between the realms, going all the way to the highest Heaven, then maybe, just maybe, this would explain a lot more as to why Satan would be so interested in that tiny sliver of land in the Middle East known as “Israel” for being the seat of his New World Order rule…

Out of the Pit…

All this attention to CERN lately, and speculations over whether or not it might possibly lead to the opening of some sort of “inter-dimensional portal” or allow us to “peek into a parallel universe” or something along these lines, has really had me thinking lately about the topic of the “abyss”, or “bottomless pit” in the Bible.

There is something almost universally embedded in our collective psyche, something so ingrained in our consciousness, in connection to an almost instinctive fear of a deep, dark, pit.

Somehow, it seems to go beyond just the practical fears of falling a long ways and being injured, or being afraid of the dark, etc. It’s a haunting feeling, when even as a small child, you peer over the edge of something like an old abandoned well for the first time, or even walking over an especially large storm drain, with nothing but thebottomless-pit21 iron grate separating you from the depths of a damp, foreboding chasm…

The “abyss” in the Bible was something which, growing up reading Bible stories, I was vaguely familiar with since I had read many times the part of Revelation which talks about these frightening beings which come up out of the “Abyss” during the Last Days:

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.

The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer). (Revelation 9:1-11)

I was also familiar with the verses in Luke which describe Jesus’ encounter with a demon-possessed man:

When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!” For Jesus had commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places.

Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

“Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. And they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. (Luke 8:28-31)

Yes despite having been familiar with these references to this “abyss”, I never realized that it was something that I really couldn’t offer any possible explanations as to just what this “abyss” was exactly, or where it came from… It’s another one of those elements, similar to Genesis 6 and the “Nephilim”, which many people in churches simply scratch their heads, shrug their shoulders, and move on. And that’s fine. Not trying to pick on anyone here.

But for me, when I was finally presented with the explanation of the Nephilim involving the “Watchers” of the Book of Enoch, whereby the giants were the offspring of inter-relations between fallen angels and human women, the “abyss” became another one of these previously unexpanded side-details which suddenly had a very compelling explanation! Suddenly it all made SO much more sense. It explained what this place was, and why the demons in Luke 8 are so utterly terrified of being sent there.

In the Book of Enoch, which describes the pre-flood sins of the “Watcher” angels in quite a bit of detail, Enoch is actually shown the prison where the angels who sinned against God and man were sentenced to be cast into as punishment, and Enoch finds it to be a most terrifying thing to behold:

And I saw a deep abyss, with columns of heavenly fire, and among them I saw columns of fire fall, which were beyond measure alike towards the height and towards the depth. 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 saw there seven stars like great burning mountains, and to me, when I inquired regarding them, The angel said: ‘This place is the end of heaven and earth: this has become a prison for the stars and the host of heaven. And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of their rising, because they did not come forth at their appointed times’. And He was wroth with them, and bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated (even) for ten thousand years.’ (Enoch, chapter 18, v11-16)

But before anyone starts protesting that this is not a part of the canon of scripture, I must point out the following verses which are all found in the New Testament, and ask you to consider how they actually would make any sense at all, outside of the very explanation provided by that of the Book of Enoch…

“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient, when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water…” (1 Peter 3:18-20)

“If God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly…” (2 Peter 2:4,5)

And finally in Jude:

“Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.” (Jude 1:5,6)

Jude is particularly noteworthy, because a little further on in verses 14/15 is where Jude actually quotes directly from the Book of Enoch, and not only that, but references his own quotation as an actual “prophecy”. Jude refers to the words in the Book of Enoch as prophetic. (This fact actually played a major role in my decision to reconsider my previous assumptions on this whole “Genesis 6” issue.)

Another great resource I have found on this subject is “A Survey on the Abyss in the Old and New Testaments” by “Paradox Brown”. Very well researched and annotated. Definitely worth checking out.

bonaccitOverall the significance of the Nephilim-Watcher-Abyss connection is that is really does a lot to reveal how the prophecies concerning the Last Days in Revelation and elsewhere are really very much about the whole expanse of Biblical/world history coming almost completely full circle, where the bizarre and almost unbelievable events which marked the “Days of Noah” are foretold to one day again visit the Earth as it experiences very remarkable events indeed. If we understand all that the Bible has to say about how all these things came about, and the reasons behind, say, who this “Apollyon” character is and why he/it would be so eager to get OUT and wreak havoc upon the Earth, then we are far less prone to be deceived by whatever manner through which this prophecy eventually is fulfilled. It is the deceiving nature of these lying spirits, these “fallen, imprisoned gods”, that is to be treated with the most caution. It’s not about being afraid of some army of “Monsters from the ID”.

After all, when the angel comes out of the Abyss in Revelation 9, the ones whom he and his strange horde attack and torture are those who have rejected God and do not have the “seal of God on their foreheads”…
