In previous articles, I've documented many times now that our global leaders today are largely occultists.
So are the owners of many of our country's largest businesses and sports franchises.
Even celebrities push occultism constantly. (For above assertions, see links in the original)
And quite frankly, many Christian churches have been infiltrated by practitioners of Kabbalah, which is a book of Jewish mysticism, magick spells, enchantments, man-made numerology and other esoteric and occult practices that the orthodox rabbis use in the course of their daily lives, and now teach Christian leaders to use, as well.
So, with so many of the world's "top tier" leaders pushing occultism - including those enemies of Christ who run the four hidden dynasties of politics, education, economics, and religion -- it should come as no surprise to you that the entire global coronavirus crisis is replete with occult symbology and ritual occult initiation themes.
Indeed, the entire manufactured coronavirus crisis is one giant, occult ritual from start to finish, divided up into four mini-rituals, each with the distinct occult purpose of initiation and transformation of the world and its people into a new global order.
So, let's start by examining the four distinct, but interrelated, occult rituals that make up this massive global occult ritual initiation ceremony:
Ritual "Social Distancing"
In the course of examining these four occult rituals, I'll do my best to explain to you how each one is part of an elaborate stage play designed to symbolically initiate the people of this world into their new positions in a new global order - a new order that rejects Jesus Christ and Christianity, and puts the people of this world under the ultimate control of a global elite whose god is the devil himself...
So, there you have it. The world today is undergoing a four-part occult ritual initiation and transformation ceremony - largely conducted through symbology, as virtually all occult rituals are - and designed to bring everyone, willingly and subserviently, into the new global order.
The global occult ritual of mask-wearing signals your consent to your new, subservient position, under your new masters, and the loss of your position as a vocal representative of, or mouthpiece for, the Word of God on this earth.
The global occult ritual of handwashing represents the washing away of the old order (i.e., the Christian Order you once belonged to), so a new order can be ushered in and firmly established.
The global occult ritual of six feet of "social distancing" symbolizes the breaking apart of the Body of Christ on earth, so it no longer functions as a stable and cohesive unit.
The global occult ritual of lockdowns symbolize isolation from everything normal so you can be "purified" from your old ways...surrender your former status to the new order...sacrifice your very self to the new order...and finally, willingly submit to the new order through obedience to it. And this will go on until the "new you" evolves like a Phoenix from the drama and trauma, straight into the waiting arms of Satan himself, ultimately. (Do you see now why our heavenly Father reduced the tribulation from seven years to five months, "for the elect's sake"?)
All told, it's an astonishing sight to behold.
The whole thing is being accomplished through a massive, global, theater-like stage play replete with occult rituals that virtually everyone, with the exception of God's elect, are willingly participating in, ignorant of their true meaning and ultimate purpose.
THE MARK OF THE BEAST
All told, these ongoing occult initiation rituals - the wearing of masks...the washing of hands...the six feet of separation...the lockdowns -- are the direct precursor, if you will, to accepting the Mark of the Beast.
Now, the Bible tells us that the Mark of the Beast is placed in the forehead and on the right hand (Revelation 13:16-17) of those who willingly take it.
I've often asked myself how so many people - the entire world, actually, with the exception of God's elect -- could possibly take the Mark of the Beast, willingly, since it's quite literally the most well-known occultic "mark" the world has ever known.
After all, far more people know about the Mark of the Beast, than, say, other "marks" such as the Scarlet Letter (a letter "A" branded in red on the flesh of an adulteress), or the Yellow Star the Jews were forced to wear on their clothing in Nazi Germany.
But what if the infamous Mark of the Beast is not a visible mark, at all? Not a vaccine. Not a tattoo. Not a "quantum dot." Not a scarred brand on seared human flesh. But instead, an invisible, spiritual mark?
Indeed, what if the Mark of the Beast is so seemingly innocuous in nature, one can quite easily be deceived into taking it, through occult ritual magick initiation and transformation, like we're seeing take place today on a global basis?
The "mark" in the forehead simply means one mentally buys into the new system they're being initiated into. And the "mark" in the right hand simply means one begins working for the new system...becoming a full and willing participant in it.
In other words, what if the Mark of the Beast on the right hand and in the forehead simply means the people buy into the new system, hand-and-mind?
Symbolically speaking, first the initiate willingly believes the deceptive story being promulgated by the powers-that-be (i.e., keep in mind that belief is a function of the mind/forehead), and then the initiate willingly and earnestly participates in the occult initiation and programming (i.e., begins wearing masks...washing hands...social distancing...locking down).
Voila! You now belong to the powers-that-be, hand-and-mind. They've captured you with a lie, and you don't even realize it. In this case, it's the coronavirus lie.
They've got you dancing to their tune. And that's precisely what the Mark of the Beast accomplishes when Satan gets here: Mental and emotional acceptance of the Satanic "Mystery, Babylon" system by the people of the world. And willingness - even eagerness - to work within that Satanic system, to its benefit. That's your "mark." As it's written:
Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The only difference at this point is that Satan is not yet physically here to deceive people with his miracles into joining his global beast system and installing him as its god.
But his henchmen are here, and they're softening up the world with these global occult ritual initiations, in preparation for the time when their father the devil finally arrives in his splendorous role as the false messiah and offers the "mark" in much the same way its precursor is being offered to us today.
That's why I say this occult global ritual initiation/transformation is nothing less than a sneak peek at the Mark of the Beast -- a global dress rehearsal for it, if you will.
The beast commanded the ritual initiation of the people of this earth, and literally billions of people worldwide fell into stride and unwittingly (yet quite willingly) participated, hand-and-mind, in their ritual.
Think about it. Virtually the entire world - with the exception of God's elect -- rallied around a singular global banner that was emblazoned everywhere. And that banner read: "We're all in this together."
Folks, when Satan finally arrives in his role as the false messiah, that's exactly what the Mark of the Beast is going to be like: The whole world coming together as one, and then going to work for the system, under its new leader.
The story you'll be asked to believe - the lie they'll be promulgating -- is this: "Jesus is here." But as the Scripture warns:
Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not.
You've believed the lie with your mind, just as people today have been completely taken in by the coronavirus lie - the lie that a virus with a 98.5% survival rate constitutes a "global pandemic" through which we must give up all of our liberties and freedoms....
You've embraced the new system with a hand-clasp, just as literally billions of folks around the globe, today, are enthusiastically (yet unwittingly) embracing the ritual occult mask-wearing, hand-washing, six feet of separation, and lockdowns imposed on them by their new global masters.
In short, it's my belief that what we're seeing today is a global dry run for when Satan finally gets here and deceives the world into accepting the true Mark of the Beast.
The bottom line is this: You can choose to become another brick in the wall of this fledgling global order they're trying so desperately to usher in (and which, I believe, will ultimately fail, based on Daniel 11:14).
Or, you can choose to remain a living stone in the Temple of the Most High God (I Peter 2:5), and stand firm in your purpose as a vessel through which His Word is transmitted to others. That is your eternal destiny IF you're not talked out of it through deception.
Choose very wisely.
