Pharmaceuticals -The Sorceries of Babylon
Almost everyone is now taking drugs for one reason or another. There is that vast array sold over-the-counter, plus the daily "coping" varieties of caffeine, nicotine and alcohol, and there's that which finds its way into processed food and drink, which you probably consume several times a day. Then, there's the prescription kind. Most doctors, who are plied by the pharmaceutical companies, are happy as can be to write prescriptions for every symptom on your list, which meets the expectation of and even demands of many patients. Some point to this as a great evil because of the greed factor and the vast sums of money involved, and while I wouldn't dispute that, my interest in this study lies elsewhere.
Most folks are casual about drug use because we've been sold the idea that "legal" drugs are for our good, physically, and harmless, spiritually, and that we can trust our lives to the professionals. What I'm going to present may be difficult to accept, but the evidence to the contrary is very convincing indeed. In this study you will discover that there is a darker agenda than you may have imagined.
The words "pharmacy" and "pharmaceutical" are derived from the Greek word, pharmakeia (Strong's G5331). This word is found in the Bible in the following passages of scripture.
19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery (pharmakeia), enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
and the light of a lamp will not shine in you (the great city Babylon) 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 (ethnos) were deceived by your sorcery (pharmakeia).
Other versions read:
- By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. (NIV)
- and all the nations were deceived by your witchcraft. (ISV)
- because all the nations were deceived by your magic spells! (NET Bible)
- for all nations have been deceived by thy enchantments. (Douay-Rheims Bible)
- because in your spell inducing drugs all the races were led astray. (Heritage Bible [* presently unable to provide further documentation of this resource])
The Industry - Another Level of Deceit
My former father-in-law enjoyed a career as a very successful pharmaceutical sales rep. His clients were doctors of many kinds, and I understand the dynamic of their relationships, the motives and influences.
Here's some news reports and testimonies offered by professionals in the business.
Shocking Report from Medical Insiders (June 18, 2015) “To state the point in other words, Horton states bluntly that major pharmaceutical companies falsify or manipulate tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of their various drugs by taking samples too small to be statistically meaningful or hiring test labs or scientists where the lab or scientist has blatant conflicts of interest such as pleasing the drug company to get further grants. At least half of all such tests are worthless or worse he claims. As the drugs have a major effect on the health of millions of consumers, the manipulation amounts to criminal dereliction and malfeasance.” (Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of The Lancet, the world’s most respected medical journal.)
Gwen Olsen, a fifteen-year veteran of the pharmaceutical industry says that the pharmaceutical companies are not in the business of health and healing but instead the business of disease maintenance and symptom management. See The Mission - Gwen Olsen - the Rx Reformer.
Big Pharma - many excellent links.
Death by Medicine - a documentary by Dr. Gary Null (Sees greed as the bottom line)
First Do No Harm (1997 - Meryl Streep, Fred Ward) - a very moving true story!
The entire medical system seems to be designed around profit. There is the economic kind of profiting, and beyond that there is a profiting through the advancement of darker agendas.
Nearly everyone is being influenced by this sorcery. Even if you aren't taking prescription medication, over-the-counter or other drugs, you still ingest food and drink, bathe, shower or breathe air, so you too are influenced by this sorcery. Drug spells are not always the direct result of someone intentionally practicing witchcraft, who casts a spell with a potion. While this certainly does happen, spells are inherent in the action of many drugs and even "natural" preparations. Many, and probably most, come with a literal curse attached and/or are specifically designed to invite one.
What is the impact on you, personally, and on those around you? As a saint, what can or should you do about this situation in this critical hour at the closing of this age? Perhaps what you read here will help you understand the situation better and gain a higher level of freedom from pharmakeia's deceitful influence.
To make sense of why Bible versions translate the word we associate with drugs into words like "sorceries" and "witchcraft" you have to see it as one of Satan's schemes. It helps, too, to know where pharmakeia came from, and how and why it works.
so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
2 Corinthians 2:11
The Pharmakeia Strategy
Pharmakeia is one among many schemes (Greek - "noema") or strategies of Satan. It absolutely does, in the language of 2 Corinthians, take advantage of us! This scheme or strategy prepares us for Satan's approaching crux move involving the Beast and the mark of the Beast. To trick people into receiving the mark of the Beast is the ultimate "taking advantage of," is it not? Pharmakeia is singularly credited in Revelation 18 as the means by which all the ethnos/races are deceived. Pharmakeia thus provides the cover for all his dark strategies, but the effectual work of this evil is also very direct!
It's no big secret that some drugs are used to facilitate satanic spells and demonic activity. While it's not popularly known, the still widely recognized witch's broomstick was used as an drug applicator. (What's the deal with witches and broomsticks? / An interview of (Rev.) Hazel L’Aura G / Joy Juice and Witches) While the delivery systems are usually more sophisticated now, the effects produced today by the whole of pharmakeia are, if we take Revelation 18 seriously, quite effectual.
What I recently came to realize is that the ultimate goal of all pharmakeia, whether "legal" or "illegal," is one solitary end, which is to facilitate the union of the sons of god with the daughters of men!
Because the procreative scheme is thus the foundation for understanding the role of pharmakeia, I'm offering, here, a synopsis of what I wrote recently in the series, Who is Cain's Father?. From the garden of Eden onward, the serpent has been bent on bringing forth offspring in his own image. This first manifested in the conception and birth of Cain, the union of the serpent and Eve. The effectiveness of this campaign is evident in that the great flood of Noah's day was expressly brought forth to purge the earth of the serpent-kind. Despite that setback, the serpent has persisted in this work and will soon be granted a major success in the milestone mark of the Beast. This mark will transform the offspring made in the image of the Creator and Most High God into the serpent's own image. The pharmaceutical strategy supports this epic scheme. It does so by providing cover for Satan's other schemes, and also, by direct action, plying our bodies, minds and emotions, our very souls.
The Watcher/Nephilim Connection
Have you been under the impression that man gradually learned about drugs strictly through the trial and error of multiplied centuries of effort? That would be a false impression. Mankind actually learned from those described in the Bible as "the sons of god" (Genesis 6) and "angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode." (Jude 1:6)
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
In the book of Enoch (referenced in Jude 1:14), we find an expanded testimony about these beings called Watchers, learning of their activity and their Nephilim "large giant" spawn.
1 And they took wives for themselves and everyone chose for himself one each. And they began to go into them and were promiscuous with them. And they taught them charms and spells, and they showed them the cutting of roots and trees. 2 And they became pregnant and bore large giants. And their height was three thousand cubits. 3 These devoured all the toil of men; until men were unable to sustain them. 4 And the giants turned against them in order to devour men. 5 And they began to sin against birds, and against animals, and against reptiles, and against fish, and they devoured one another's flesh, and drank the blood from it. 6 Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.
Enoch Chapter 7
1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of making them; bracelets, and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes, and of beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious stones, and all kinds of coloured dyes. And the world was changed. 2 And there was great impiety, and much fornication, and they went astray, and all their ways became corrupt. 3 Amezarak taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, Armaros the release of spells, and Baraqiel astrologers, and Kokabiel portents, and Tamiel taught astrology, and Asradel taught the path of the Moon. 4 And at the destruction of men they cried out; and their voices reached Heaven.
Enoch Chapter 8
As very likely more properly rendered in the popular translation by H. R. Charles, verse 3a reads: "Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings."
As it was, so it is and will be. The Lord Y'shua declared, "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah." (Matthew 24:37) This same condition responsible for the great flood of Noah's day, which is the genetic mixture of the sons of god and daughters of men, is appointed for the last days - our day! This is the condition represented in Daniel chapter 2 in the mixture of iron and clay composing the feet of the statue. The statue is a prophetic device that pictures a time line through the succession of earthly kingdoms from head down, from ancient Babylon forward in time to Mystery Babylon and the reign of the Beast.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
The Watchers who had taken the daughters of men as wives mingled themselves with the seed of men through their procreative union. The mingled, or hybrid, offspring are referred to as giants, Nephilim. The ultimate goal of the fallen angels' "knowledge download" and practice has not changed! Satan's pharmakeia strategy is to facilitate the bringing forth of offspring. The fallen Semjaza taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, which is pharmakeia. The iron/sons-of-god are leveraging Satan's strategies, including pharmakeia, to mingle themselves with the clay/seed-of-men.
What clued me in to the primary goal of the pharmakeia strategy was the realization that most of the schemes serve Satan's grand procreative scheme. When the Lord began to grant me surprising insight into the modern "graven images" as one of Satan's schemes (See The Open Scroll Blog from the end of October, 2009 forward), it became apparent that this procreative scheme is and has ever been the underlying theme of graven images. It dawned on me (Thank you Lord!) that the procreative scheme was at the root of these other schemes, even pharmakeia!
The pharmakeia "card was played" in the garden, according to some historical accounts of how the serpent seduced Eve. The pharmakeia "card was played" as the Watcher Semjaza taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, which I'll elaborate upon shortly. It was played again after the flood when Noah was taken advantage of while drunk, with Ham seizing the opportunity to procreate with Noah's wife and bring forth the cursed father of the giant Canaanites. It's being played still today. Have you ever heard of "date rape" drugs? This is nothing new! Revelation 18:23 testifies to this same card being played today to the same end, naming pharmakeia as the agency of deception - WITH the use of the word "ethnos" when describing the scope of the deception. Take this as a clue.
To see the connection between today's pharmaceuticals and Satan's ancient agents we have only to recognize the symbol used to identify prescription medication and the merchants who sell it.
The Rx Connection
Pharmakeia has a symbol associated with it, a stylized "Rx" that signals "prescription" to most people today. This may surprise you, but the Rx symbol is actually the Eye of Horus, identifying mark of Horus-Jupiter-Zeus! This compares to another familiar version - the glowing capstone of the pyramid on the back of the one dollar bill. Search it out to verify for yourself this important fact. Here's one example of what you'll find: The Eye of Horus.
If you're savvy about symbols (following The Open Scroll Blog yet?), you know the Rx as the Eye of Horus links pharmaceutical drugs to the Beast and mark of the Beast ploy. There is nothing ambiguous about this connection because anything identified with such a mark means what all similar symbols mean. The Rx symbol and the spell inducing drug scheme it represents exist to facilitate the mark of the beast. This symbol is ubiquitous in the health care environment, as is the Rod of Asclepius that links the medical practice to the Greek god known by that name or alias. The health care environment has been and continues to be signaled by the elite agencies as the primary sector in which the mark will be introduced. (Search my blog for such as NCR.com marketing scenes, the ObamaCare bill, PositiveId, Osirix, etc.) From the early enchantments and cutting of roots taught by the fallen Semjaza forward through time to the pharmakeia referenced in Revelation 18 you can track the Rx symbol and the trade it represents.
The Rx symbol has another interpretation that provides an interesting perspective. "Rx is an abbreviation for the Latin word 'recipere' or 'recipe,' which means 'Take, thou.'" (What does the pharmacist's symbol "Rx" mean?) This is an expression of a command to receive the drug/spell being offered. The interpretation of Rx as 'recipere' acknowledges the symbol as an inducement to receive the pharmakeia.
This compares to the inducement inherent in the name "PositiveId," the implantable microchip family of companies recently renamed from Verichip. "PositiveId" can be understood as equivalent to, "accept (acceptance-Positive) the mark (Id)" of the Beast.
These two inducements, "take, thou" and "accept the mark," have already teamed up, with the implantable microchip functioning as a Rx delivery system and as a means of linking the chipped person with their medical records, including their Rx!
Here's a quote from a source where the author rejected the 'recipere' interpretation in favor of the Rx symbol as a reference to Jupiter. (Jupiter is an alias for the Beast and the dragon who gives him his power, comparing to Horus, Zeus or Apollo.) "Rx is not, as is frequently supposed, an abbreviation of a Latin word meaning recipe or compound, but is an invocation to Jupiter, a prayer for his aid to make the treatment effective...sometimes in old medical manuscripts all the R's occurring in the text were crossed." (Devils, Drugs, and Doctors (1931)) The author makes a good point based upon the observation that 'R's were crossed in the old medical manuscripts.
It seems obvious to me that the Rx symbol is an invocation to Jupiter, seeing how it was a Watcher who taught men about spells and the cutting of roots. Such an invocation of aid from Jupiter is the invitation for a curse, biblically and truthfully. It may well be said that the familiar Rx symbol is an accursed graven image.
Here's a popular translation of the traditional Hippocratic Oath, which was written in Greek. Note, Horus is Apollo, son of Zeus, aka Jupiter.
“I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art; and that by my teaching, I will impart a knowledge of this art to my own sons, and to my teacher’s sons, and to disciples bound by an indenture and oath according to the medical laws, and no others.
I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.
I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.
I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.
In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or men, be they free or slaves.
All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.”
This is what the profession is rooted in, even if the version that a participant has sworn left out the names of the gods it is still pagan idolatry. How do we know? One way is to see that by constraining members to swear an oath those responsible for the medical profession engage in a practice that is fundamentally wrong.
33 “Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall fulfill your vows to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil.
But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment.
How Pharmakeia Works: Detuning for a biological realignment towards genetic reassignment
Towards the goal of facilitating the union of the sons of god with the daughters of men, pharmakeia plies our bodies and minds, acting to conform us to the image of the serpent.
Drugs induce changes in our body chemistry. These effect our body's function, metabolic processes. They influence how we feel, think and act, our personality, responses and reactions. These changes may be temporary but may also last a very long time. Some cause our DNA to be rewritten, which changes us quite tangibly into a different "us." Because the life of the flesh is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11) and our blood is subject to pharmakeia's effects, there is a direct impact on our souls! The influence is also supernatural, with the very real effect of opening a door or gateway, a dimensional portal through which demons may pass. Our thoughts and actions are then given over to their control. These entities are referred to as familiar spirits. The supernatural activity of angels and demons is the effectual power, which do work through natural agencies. Pharmakeia can hinder people from receiving the holy spirit, or can isolate those who have it from the Lord and deny them what benefit would otherwise be enjoyed.
Technically, I believe effectual chemical agents configure biological structures so they resonate with certain vibrational frequencies. These tune us, literally, to match established frequencies or their harmonics. A resonant link is established like that between a singer and a crystal glass when the singer can hold a note and break the glass. The principle can be noted in relevant passages of scripture. Consider the following verses and how voices produce audio signals.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
So the people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets; and when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight ahead, and they took the city.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
2 Thessalonians 4:16
There is a link between the natural and supernatural that involves wavelengths and frequencies. The understanding of chemistry involves knowledge of the three (or higher?) dimensional molecular structures and the nature of the bonds. I believe pharmakeia is the knowing manipulation of these structures and bonds by drugs and spells, effectively retuning the targeted resonating structures from those of the inherited Yahweh/Adamic to the fallen serpent / Watcher / Nephilim. Think of this like an antichrist detuning mechanism that works to reset our biology from Messiah-like to antiMessiah-like.
For more insight, see the blog series Threshold - The CBS sci-fi series from 2005 and watch this sci-fi series, considering the alien signal that invokes the transformation - and how blessed we are that the Lord would expose the enemy's hand in this hour.
The fact that this kind of transformation occurs is documented in the Bible. Genesis 10:8 reveals that Nimrod began to be a mighty one in the earth. The Hebrew for "began to be a mighty one" is "chalal gibbowr" which, when you search out the usage of these two words, makes it very apparent what is meant. He was detuned, if you will, from the image of Yahweh to Lucifer, or, in a figure, broken off from the Yahweh/Adam tree and grafted into the serpent tree. This is the intent of pharmakeia, to ungraft and regraft, to facilitate a genetic reassignment that will come through the addition of a third strand of DNA.
Pharmakeia prepares an individual for the mark of the beast on an emotional level, causing an affinity for the serpent and the serpent-kind and a desire for union with the serpent as an aphrodisiac. It facilitates the supernatural opening of what is referred to as the third eye or sixth chakra enlightenment channel. It prepares an individual physically by making them a fit container, a welcoming abode for the entities who were bound during the great flood and that still await their release. An individual so detuned is a willing and even eager receptacle, a canning jar ready to be filled, a receiver slave.
How Pharmakeia Works: Deceit, delusion, smoke and mirrors
As stated earlier, pharmakeia provides cover for Satan's strategies, according to Revelation 18:23, "... because all the nations (ethnos) were deceived by your sorcery (pharmakeia)." A key passage on this topic is found in 2 Thessalonians.
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 2:8-12
I often refer to the deception wrought as the antichrist delusion. The deluding influence God sends can, to a large degree, be equated to the great city Babylon's pharmakeia. The sovereign God has ordained that it should be as so presented, to accomplish His purposes of judgment. Don't fret about it - this is a good thing because ultimately judgment has two sides, including reward! Certainly, we have had and are even now receiving sufficient warning. The deception of wickedness for those who perish isn't explicitly defined in the passage, but it really doesn't need to be. The subject is addressed throughout the scriptures.
The activity of Satan underwrites the procreative scheme with myriad strategies. Pharmakeia provides the cover for these with powerful synergy as it works its magical biological realignment towards genetic reassignment. It is the ultimate facilitation tool. The drug spells are unlocking doors and providing control levers and bases of control. Pharmakeia lowers the natural resistance to the foreign ideas and images Satan introduces so influentially. What I mean by "natural resistance" is something imprinted into the nature of created beings that establishes a basis for discernment and accountability.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Drug Spells and Satan's Myriad Schemes
What are some of Satan's myriad schemes that are underwritten by pharmakeia?
The most obvious of Satan's schemes is the simple lie, a contradiction of the truth of the word of God. For example, the serpent told Eve while in the garden of Eden, "Ye shall not surely die," but the Lord God had said, "thou shalt surely die." As with that lie, the ultimate goal of these lies is seduction. The lies come through the speech and song lyrics of deceived and deceiving people in every context, or through the written word. Sometimes what comes to the conscious mind aren't actual words but rather pictures of familiar and recognizable things. Pharmakeia provides a smokescreen, an environment like "smoke and mirrors" that causes mental confusion and the inability to discern truth, making it difficult or even impossible to recognize and subsequently filter out lies. The spell inducing drugs thus provide something akin to lubrication for the insertion so the lies slide right on in.
Lies often come in the form of words that are perceived by the conscious mind but that's merely the most obvious way. When the "front door" is locked, that doesn't mean the devil can't get in to your "house." There are many ways; back doors, side doors, windows, through the doggie door or down the chimney! The serpent is subtle. You might think these things we see and hear consciously have the most influence, but the more I learn the more I think otherwise.
"Sex, drugs and rock and roll" or "Wine, women and song" - how many people have been taken advantage of through the millennia by such a combination as these? Music can have a powerful influence, for good or for evil.
The Bible testifies that David, son of Jesse, was a skillful musician and that the Lord was with him.
So it came about whenever the evil spirit from God came to Saul, David would take the harp and play it with his hand; and Saul would be refreshed and be well, and the evil spirit would depart from him.
1 Samuel 16:23
If inspired music can drive an evil spirit from a man, can music inspired from another source have the opposite effect? Certainly! The key testimony from the book of Enoch ("Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings" - Enoch 8:3a) that documents how pharmakeia was learned from the Watchers is also understood to relate to music. The following excerpt references the work of the noted British cuneiform scholar Oliver Robert Gurney (1911 - 2001).
"Enchantment: Gurney describes the Hittite worship and shows that the rituals were almost identical to the Canaanite and Hebrew worship. One of the features of 'sympathetic' magic among the Hittites was the "Old Woman" or "wise woman" which may mean "midwife." Other scholars note that early musicians acted as midwives between a worshipper and their god. Gurney notes that "thirteen such women are known, but they function as sorceresses in countless rituals." Of the sorceresses who performed magic through the incantation of what we would call a poem or song, the "author" are 3 midwives, 1 doctor, 1 prostitute, and 2 temple singers." (Enoch Book 1: Watchers)
What does a midwife do but facilitate the delivery of offspring? As more than a hint, you see, the enchantments and root cutting as pharmakeia and music operate together to facilitate the procreative agenda of the ages, to bring forth the offspring of the union of the sons of god and the daughters of men, a race bearing the image of the serpent. Wine, women and song! Sex, drugs and rock 'n roll! Seeing this combination in the context of the mark of the Beast may seem novel to you but such as that has been the goal for a very long time.
Subliminal - below the threshold of consciousness
Most likely, you've heard of subliminal messages. It's also likely you've heard subliminal messages aren't effective. I'm sure you've heard there's no such thing as Satan, too. I hope you didn't fall for either one! If you check modern dictionaries, you'll find definitions like the following because subliminals are legitimate.
Subliminal: "existing or operating below the threshold of consciousness; being or employing stimuli insufficiently intense to produce a discrete sensation but often being or designed to be intense enough to influence the mental processes or the behavior of the individual: a subliminal stimulus; subliminal advertising." ( Dictionary.com Unabridged - Based on the Random House Dictionary)
When words and images are presented below the threshold of our consciousness there is, by definition, no awareness of the stimulus and thus no opportunity to consciously control our response. Reason is removed from the equation. This situation is taken advantage of in many ways.
Regarding visual imagery, words like "sex" and "death" may be found subtly imprinted in paintings, ads, commercials and magazine covers, and also pictures of skulls, violent crime, male and female genitalia, and people engaging in sexual activity. For some examples, see this video: Subliminal persuasion through media, music and HAARP (Programming The Nation trailer). Such as this would not be accepted if it were obvious to our conscious minds. When presented with sufficient subtilty, however, most people are influenced and the intentionally solicited reaction is produced.
Regarding audible imagery, words and sounds are sometimes presented with similar subtilty, heard and received without being consciously perceived. Walmart was accused of subliminal programming not long ago. They played messages through the store's loudspeakers encouraging shoppers not to steal. In 2003, the words, "I hate you" were heard by Blanche Skelton coming from an item purchased from Walmart that had been hung on her baby's crib. This repeating mantra was concealed within the sounds of ocean waves from the aquarium toy that was intended to lull the baby to sleep.
There are risks involved when someone undertakes to present subliminal messaging. If the subliminal artifact is discovered and exposed, depending on the nature of or result of what has been done, there may be some negative impact on the transgressors's reputation. Watch this video to see CNN flashing a subliminal ad for a pharmaceutical. The popularity of subliminals reveals how their use is popularly deemed a worthwhile risk. The perception is that the benefits are substantial, and the evidence validates that perception.
Symbols and the Second Commandment
Beyond the presentation of literal words and recognizable images there are symbols. These can be presented in such a way that whether or not we're consciously aware of their presence, it makes little difference; they influence our thoughts, feelings and behavior. These work even when we can't consciously interpret their meaning. Symbols can be gestures, shapes, colors, sounds or quantities or numberings of things, and combinations and alignments of component elements. Symbols have been leveraged for the exercise of control over people for a very long time. They are continually used to great effect.
What I've learned about such things in the last few years has changed the way I perceive the world around me in a big way. As I've shared what I've learned with others I've heard the amazing testimony of others whose eyes have also been opened. The messaging and influence of such spells comes through incredibly diverse media. Our culture is saturated with symbols whose bottom line is to prepare us for joining with Satan through the mark of the Beast. If you doubt that statement is true, you probably haven't considered the Beijing Olympics closing ceremonies or followed The Open Scroll Blog.
"The psychological mechanism that transforms energy is the symbol."
Carl Jung (1875 - 1961) - father of analytical psychology
"To cast a spell is to project energy through a symbol."
"The Spiral Dance" - a popular manual for witchcraft by Starhawk
"A symbol can act in two ways. First, it can be used to focus and project your energy through it. Second, a symbol can function as a magnifier and transmitter of energy, even if you are not focusing attention on the symbol. Symbols do have a life force of their own. They are mini-transmitting stations for subtle energies that are infused in our reality. Each symbol interacts with your energy field, constantly generating a force field that strengthens you."
"Sacred Space" - a popular Wiccan magic book by Denise Linn
"Signs and symbols control the world, not phases and laws."
Confucius (551-479 BC)
You might wonder why, if this is really so, the Bible doesn't warn about such a threat to our freedom. It does, but we've been lied to about it so the deceivers (for example, the institution of the Roman Catholic church; an extension of the throne of Babylon) could leverage this powerful mechanism, this strategy of Satan. This threat is actually addressed be the second commandment of the famous and famously ignored ten.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
There is the warning. Such an image might be as obvious as a statue of a golden calf, or as subtle as a missing or misplaced dot in a corporate logo. There are two parts to this commandment. The first involves the making of such a likeness. The second involves the worship of such an image. If an image is made that represents or attempts to represent what is described (which are found in other contexts as generally relating to the created beings called angels), it is contrary to His command and, as acts of disobedience, will reap consequences. A shrine for the worship of "Mary," a St. Christopher medal, or perhaps a simple cross or dove; if a thing is assigned a spiritual meaning or elevated in importance it is such an idol. Any "good luck" charm is still a charm, meaning, witchcraft is involved. Unless the making of the form of some thing in the physical world that is intended to represent something else symbolically is explicitly directed by the most High God (as in the building of the tabernacle) it will absolutely serve to bring a curse. I see no option here.
Reversed Speech - Speech Inversion
There's another kind of operative activity that compares somewhat to visual symbols but is auditory in nature, and still quite controversial at the present time. It's popularly referred to as Reverse SpeechTM, which is now a trademark owned by David John Oates of reversespeech.com. It differs from symbols in that symbols can be consciously recognized and interpreted but this other activity is only ever imperceptible to the conscious mind, directly. At least this is the case in my experience and in the experience of others like myself. While this is not directly perceptible to the conscious mind, we know about it because we have the means to record speech, invert the audio signal and play it back, which exposes the phenomenon.
I reason that the fact of the existance of this phenomenon suggests that, given the requisite generating and transmitting mechanisms, some provision has been made for receiving and rendering the messaging in real time. As to what influence this has upon our thoughts, feelings and behavior in our condition at the present time, well, I could only speculate, but perhaps this functions in some way that compares to how the symbolic visual imagery functions.
You can learn about symbols and speech inversion from pages on TheOpenScroll.com like "Speech Inversion - Spilling the Beans" and from the examples I've posted to my YouTube channel, alias 17Stormy17.
The content of speech inversion involves both recognizable words and unrecognizable. Most of it sounds rather murky at best, and much of it often sounds like gibberish, even when listening over and over for something recognizable. Yet, something is being said, sometimes with words foreign to "known" languages. Whether words like nairf, schneerch, niersch and marf are of the tongue of angels or perhaps "lost" languages of men, I can't say. I can tell you that I've personally listened for hundreds of hours to reversed speech and that I believe this has been at the Lord's direction. I am convinced that this content compares with regular forward speech in many ways. Reversals expose the fact that there is a spiritual realm and that people function as hosts and mouthpieces for beings from another dimension. There is content broadcasted on this channel that is what I call soul chatter, describing what's on a speaker's mind. There is also that which can only be identified as coming from somewhere else, from holy or unholy spirit. Since demons do broadcast on this channel there is vast potential for influence upon the minds of the speakers and hearers as a strategy of Satan.
Inverted speech is not of itself an evil scheme of Satan. The holy spirit is a "content producer" on the reverse channel and there is also benign soul chatter. Likewise, neither are music and symbolism of themselves inherently evil. It's when devils operate that an evil scheme is in play, like when a "graven image" symbol has been made contrary to the second commandment. The nature of what is produced is in accordance with its source.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
18 "But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. 19 "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.
14 After He called the crowd to Him again, He began saying to them, "Listen to Me, all of you, and understand: 15 there is nothing outside the man which can defile him if it goes into him; but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man. 16 ["If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."]
If we tend to our hearts as the Lord has commanded, what we say and do is going to be the blessed fruit of obedience and love. Otherwise, what's brought forth will be evil, whether music, symbols, speech reversals, or whatever else. It matters not whether you or I or anyone else involved consciously intends to participate in one of Satan's schemes, what matters is the fact of participation.
Satan's schemes constantly work to detune our biological structures and get us resonating on his frequencies. You and I have been influenced by all his schemes, by some, even while yet in the womb! We are constantly being influentially manipulated by drug spells and other kinds of spells, subliminally discipled for antichrist, and there are precious few among us that escape that snare. Many think they will, and ARE ALREADY DECEIVED! The procreative transformation of the mark of the Beast is coming, and, let me be very forthright about this: Unless you are watchful and are very attentive to constantly seek diligently to obey the Lord Y'shua in all things, you will be deceived and your end will be cause for regret. If you don't submit to God and resist the devil you will surely dance to the beat of Satan's music. The flood of demonic influence saturating our environment massages us in every way possible to encourage the union of the sons of god with the daughters of men, conforming us to Satan's image in the most cunning, subtle and deceitful ways. Yet, a defense against the attack of the enemy has been provided, and such a defense as the Lord Y'shua provides is essential to the one who is to be found awake and watching when He comes for His Bride!
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Here are more schemes you may have heard about that work in subtle ways.
Of course, brainwashing comes to mind straightaway as a general descriptive. What is sometimes labeled propaganda works to program and condition our thinking with determined terminology and linguistic structures. Hypnotic suggestions are planted in various ways, some with great effect. These may or may not be done under the recognizable banners of witchcraft as magical spells and incantations. What is known today as NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) is in the category of mind and behavior control. Such books as "Awaken the Giant Within" (Right. Think about it.) by Anthony Robbins, and, "Get the Life You Want" by Richard Bandler, are related examples. Attempting to use techniques on one's self to shortcut the learned discipline of self-control at the Lord's direction yields bad results, and when such techniques are "applied" to control others it's, of course, never good. Attempts to control others by manipulation may be done targeting a single individual or with the goal of controlling entire populations. Search online for such as subliminal persuasion, conversational hypnosis, creative visualization. Compare, too, what is at the core of all this to what you recognize as popular religious practice. Hmmmmm.
If you have never considered such the Manchurian Candidate as a potential reality, you haven't paid attention to events in recent years that really have no other explanation than that or something similar. Watch this BBC News clip of the "unexplainable" behavior of a pair of Swedish twins, then give what you saw some serious consideration. Twins are unfortunately the subjects of many kinds of experiments. Remember Joseph Mengele? The explanation for the behavior of the Swedish twins seems obvious. Someone's control experiment was entirely successful. The media's report and the public reaction to the reporting of the event makes some interesting statements about the reality of our time as well.
It may be that every kind of audio wave and frequency has been studied with a view to understanding the effects on human behavior and health. You and I have been unwitting subjects in these experiments. Technologies like HAARP are believed to be leveraged to that end of exerting broad controlling influence. What a powerful tuning fork for the global population! Other devices have been developed that target more localized groups or individuals. Some have the ability to put voices inside heads like a magical ventriloquist. If you haven't seen the movie "Men Who Stare at Goats" and then listened to John Alexander's interview in the bonus features section, I recommend doing so, Lord willing.
Drugs in the water supply, processed foods and chemtrails - genetically modified plants and animals used for food and the spread of spores, bacterias and virus - waveform "pollution" from the electrical grid and broadcast towers and every sort of energetic projection coming through the entertainment media - all these things work to tune us, to retune us from Yahweh-like to serpent-like. What is done for control is not just for the simple acquisition of money or goods. Material wealth is only a means to the end. What is done is beyond even the feeding of the prideful ego of a few wicked people. When you evaluate the scope and scale of these schemes, the greed and pride points beyond mere natural man to the serpent and to his interest in men as the means to acquire worship as God, having the subjects in his kingdom made in his own image. It is a full replacement agenda, substituting himself for the Most High, his body for His Body, his body's head for His Body's Head and even his bride for His Bride.
The Aphrodisiac and the Goddess of Magic
One could hardly address this topic without considering aphrodisiacs. "Aphrodisia" means sexual desire. An "aphrodisiac" is a food, drug, potion, or other agent that arouses sexual desire. I've presented pharmakeia as facilitating the procreation scheme, which means that it truly serves on some level as an aphrodisiac.
Word Origin & History: aphrodisiac - 1719, from Gk. aphrodisiakos "inducing sexual desire," from aphrodisios, "pertaining to Aphrodite" (q.v.), Gk. goddess of love and beauty. (Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper)
Just that connection alone should speak to many of you pretty loudly about the point of pharmakeia. Yes, it facilitates procreation between the sons of god and daughters of men. Like the Rx symbol, aphrodisiacs can be traced back to the Watchers who taught the magic of pharmaceuticals. Since this Aphrodite is secretly so popular and influential even today, I'm going to expose some of what's been hidden so you can perceive this presence in your daily life.
"Aphrodite was the ancient Greek goddess of sexual love, fertility, and beauty. In Greek mythology Aphrodite was renowned for her mortal lovers, who included Adonis and Anchises." (Wikipedia entry for Aphrodite) It's the union of the immortal with the mortal lovers that is, of course, the real focus of the pharmakeia aphrodisiac. Aphrodite may be a reference to Lucifer or to a Watcher or archon like, perhaps, Azazel. This demonic entity is celebrated in many cultures, associated with the Roman Venus, the Phoenician Ashtoreth, the Egyptian Hathor, the Saxon Eostre and Ostara, and the Assyrian Ishtar. When temple prostitutes are involved, a Baal/Ashtoreth god/goddess alias is being worshiped.
I can easily demonstrate the influence the Goddess of Magic has in today's world.
The fertility goddess is celebrated in pagan christianity as/at Easter with eggs, prolific bunnies and sunrise rites around the Vernal Equinox.
"In ancient Anglo-Saxon myth, Ostara is the personification of the rising sun. In that capacity she is associated with the spring and is considered to be a fertility goddess. She is the friend of all children and to amuse them she changed her pet bird into a rabbit. This rabbit brought forth brightly colored eggs, which the goddess gave to the children as gifts. From her name and rites the festival of Easter is derived." (Ostara - Encyclopedia Mythica)
Easter, that's still pretty influential, right? There is coming a fake baptism/resurrection at that time of the year that's going to reveal the Beast, which is the hinge pin of the procreation / transformation! Have you ever seen children on an Easter morning sugar / food dye / chocolate-caffeine buzz? Oh my! An aphrodisiac attack!
The Aphrodite legend presents her as arising from the sea, from the sea foam (aphros), comparing to the picture presented in Revelation 13:1: "And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea ..."
Some elements associated with the goddess are the shell, dolphin, dove, sparrow, swan, rose, mirror. The famous painting by Botticelli shows Venus (Aphrodite) on the shell. As Ostara she is the personification of the rising sun. Tying in with my blogging about occult symbols, note how these are combined in a logo you should find familiar.
Here's another logo of note. Sea-Doo is a brand of personal watercraft. Their logo just shouts Aphrodite! If you're savvy about occult symbols, you notice the letters called out are the A and D, as in Aphro-Dite. This god's emblematic dolphin is featured, which forms an arc. The arc presents the heavenly arch and suggests that underneath it is a female circle. Within the female circle is the male dot (a Bindu). The most obvious shape in view is the downward-pointing delta signaling the triple helix transformation of the daughters of the Adam and Eve. This is about the union of the sons of god with the daughters of men, suggesting the aphrodisiac facilitation. Their slogan, "The good life just got better," appears with the focus on the word "good." This is a signal phrase because the better life referenced is the one that comes with the triple helix "upgrade" - a HUGE LIE! It compares to Walmart's "live better," whose slogan is associated with their comparable six pointed star.
The rose and mirror are combined in this snapshot from The Iron Giant, an antichrist signaling feature length animation.
While The Iron Giant has never achieved widespread popularity, a thematically related movie sure has, called Momma Mia! In December 2008, Mamma Mia! surpassed Titanic (1997) as the highest-grossing film of all time in the United Kingdom, and remained #1 until it was overtaken by Avatar sometime in 2010. The Goddess is beloved. The setting is a Greek island and a villa in particular that is in the storyline "rumored" to be built on the legendary fountain of Aphrodite. I put "rumored" in quotes because the magical influence of the waters of the fountain are certainly evidenced in the movie. I watched this movie recently, knowing that it was at the Lord's direction, who had been directing me to watch particular movies in a curriculum of instruction about symbolic representations and the gods they honor.
Many of these movies feature the number 9, the single digit signal of the triple helix transformation. Mamma Mia! is one of a similar kind marked with number 8 signals, being made in 2008 and having a duration of 108 minutes, which actually sums to 9. Did you notice how the current Shell logo exhibits eight rays? The number eight was heavily featured during the Olympics in Beijing and in the associated crop sign of 8/8/08. It signals the counter-flood of Noah the eighth (2 Peter 2:5), the coming of which is most certainly being facilitated by the aphrodisiac scheme.
The Eye as agent of transformation
Another form of the Rx symbol that apparently used to be popular actually presented an eye instead of the R, positioning the x below it. (If anyone finds a good picture of this example, please let me know.) That "prescription" eye was even known as the Eye of Horus. Horus has been considered the "father of pharmacy." It's in identifying this symbol as the EYE of Horus that really highlights the objective of the pharmakeia scheme.
It was the eye that some versions of the ancient story accounted as holding the magical regenerative force, the power of resurrection or rebirth. The eye symbol points beyond death to a different life and identity, which is to say that it's not representing any "band-aid" healing restorative work that simply extends the life of man in this body and soul identity. The Eye of Horus is all about such a dramatic transformation. The mark of the Beast will involve this same magic, in the promise of the granting to mortal men a facsimile of immortality through a triple helix DNA transformation. See this blog post for some very convincing documentation.
And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
Often, the truth of Satan's schemes that the higher echelon agents will only reveal when cloaked in esoteric symbolism is more plainly declared by agents with lesser visibility. In such an example, I want you to consider what I found on the site DNA Alchemy. This is a validation of much of what I've been declaring. The following is a testimony excerpted from The Eye of Horus page. Consider it as brought forth by way of familiar spirits.
I have always seen the Eye of Horus shown as an ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Symbol and heard the story about Osiris and Isis and the birth of Horus their son.
It was not until I was activated through the Eye of Horus that I understood what it really meant and that the story was a parable meant to keep alive the energies until humanity was ready. The Eye of Horus Clearing and Activation is energy work that was "downloaded" to me as I was deep in Meditation just as I directly experienced my own personal Eye of Horus Activation. The Eye is the Eternal Eye through which a template of vibratory patterns is used by the Masters and Lords of Light to generate physical creation. The Father’s Eye of divine creation coordinating the minds of the Elohim so that the divine image can be passed on to all generations of creations. The Eternal Eye allows the Father’s Living Light to make visible His garment so that it can form the Light substances.
From the Father’s Living Light through Sacred Geometry, Light is transmitted through the Eye of Horus to the human being to transform him into a Light Being.
This is known to me as a remembrance as far back as Lemuria and is a very ancient system that had been used on the Earth Plane but forgotten until now. I am not the only person who has remembered this.
When it is said that through the Eye of Horus you are transformed into a Light Being it does not mean that this is the only means. I believe that everyone is receiving the accelerated energies that are present on the Earth now. The people who are drawn to activate through the Eye of Horus energies are, in my opinion, the way showers. The Eye of Horus refers to the ancient Mystery School Teachings of Creational Geometry encoded by Isis and Osiris and left behind with their priests in Egypt. These are the same souls who are the priests in Atlantis and other programs. They carry this genetically encoded information in their DNA - triggered now as we move back to 2012.
If you understand the testimony of Luke 11 and how the "dark" light of a lamp is cast by the occult pyramid eye, and the corresponding Olympic torch and cauldron, no further commentary about that person's testimony is necessary.
Pharmakeia as procreative facilitator - exposed by technical means
The function of pharmakeia as a primary facilitator of the procreative agenda can be recognized through the exercise of some more technical study methodologies. If this kind of thing interests you, you should find this simple thematic structure of Enoch 7 of great interest. It certainly speaks to me!
1 And they took wives for themselves and everyone chose for himself one each. And they began to go into them and were promiscuous with them. And they taught them charms and spells, and they showed them the cutting of roots and trees. 2 And they became pregnant and bore large giants.
If you wrap parenthesis around the third "sentence" of verse 1, the surrounding context then flows with unbroken continuity. This exercise reveals that the third part of verse 1 functions as a parenthetical insertion. E. W. Bullinger would refer to it as an "introversion" structural form, examples of which you may have encountered in the popular work, The Companion Bible. Because the pharmakeia strategy is presented as if it were sandwiched between two slices of procreation, so to speak, we can see these as particularly related. The literary structure highlighting pharmakeia as the central element supports the bracketing procreative scheme.
In another manner of showing that two subjects are related, consider the language of Revelation chapter 18.
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 (ethnos) were deceived by your sorcery (pharmakeia).
The English words "ethnic" and "ethnicity" derive from the word "ethnos." This Bible text's manner of identifying the Earth's inhabitants makes a racial rather than geo-political distinction, which would be implied by (mis)translating ethnos as "nations." When, in verse 23, the Greek words "ethnos" and "pharmakeia" are presented together, you can read between the lines, so to speak. When you consider the evidence that history, past, present and future, revolves around two fruit bearing trees (the Adamic (Yahweh's line) and Luciferian) and have eyes to see the procreative theme being redundantly signaled by every apparent means, well, Revelation 18:23 just speaks pretty loudly about the 23 (verse) chromosome packages composing the mark-of-the-Beast (6+6+6=18 - the chapter number).
Now, consider how the greater context of that verse 23 (chapters 17 and 18) features illicit sexual relationships.
17:3 and upon her forehead was a name written: `Secret, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Whores, and the Abominations of the earth.'
18:3 because of the wine of the wrath of her whoredom have all the nations drunk, and the kings of the earth with her did commit whoredom, and merchants of the earth from the power of her revel were made rich.
Revelation 17:3, 18:3 (YLT)
These are, of course, figurative expressions, yet, I've learned time and again, as the Lord opens my eyes, how metaphorical and allegorical language used in the Bible conceals literal truths. Certainly, beyond the figurative, whoredom with a harlot involves a sexual relationship, procreation.
A couple years back I put a lot of time and effort into trying to discern the thematic structure of Revelation 17 and 18, and as a result of the Lord prospering this effort with much favor I can direct you to the result. Revelation 17 & 18 - An interactive presentation of its thematic structure There, you can see for yourself how verse 3 and 23 are directly linked, one to the other. To expose the helpful highlighting, hover your mouse over the lightest gray bar in front of 18:3. Make sure you can see both the 18:3 and 18:23b-24 sections in your view at the same time. There's a lot of effort in the thematic structure work but there's always a big reward with the insight granted!
The ultimate goal of the fallen angels' "knowledge download" and practice has not changed. The pharmakeia taught by Semjaza facilitated the procreative scheme prior to the flood and so it is today, in the days of the coming of the son of Man when the transforming mark of the beast nears its prophesied introduction.
There's an obvious lesson here. Mind your drug use. Weigh whatever promises or benefits are associated with the medications with what they might actually be costing you. If you suspect the influence of curses in your life and find the Lord's blessings elusive, consider the potential role pharmakeia plays in your life. If you find yourself struggling with faith and peace, less pharmaceuticals and not more is usually the better choice. I encourage you to entrust your health and well-being to the Lord, who is the great physician. Seek His specific guidance and take care to follow through with that direction.
You might want to print some copies of the following paragraph to relabel your drugs.
"Warning! This drug may increase your susceptibility to demonic influence. Use may lead to unpleasant side effects such as but not limited to falling under satanic spells, demonic possession, and antichrist delusion. Destruction may occur. If a bustle occurs in your hedgerow while taking this drug, please stop taking it immediately and call your friendly ministering saints who can seek the Lord with you for deliverance."
If you ever watch TV, you've spent time watching commercials for drugs of many kinds. The drug companies and the mass media are pushing drugs like there's no tomorrow! Why? Because, truly, not many more tomorrows remain. No effort is being spared to medicate the masses, globally. Such as GlaxoSmithKline, Hoffmann–La Roche, Pfizer and even long respected Johnson & Johnson don't have clean ethics records, and there is every reason to question their motives as we consider what is done over what is said. Given what has been presented in this writing, you have another version of the facts to consider about what big pharma is really all about.
If you feel sure you would know whether or not you were under a spell, I challenge that reasoning because in fact you would not consciously perceive it unless the Lord Y'shua gave you a conviction about it. Spells are by their very nature deceitful. Otherwise, how could they work? Since there is no conscious awareness about our state, our primary, and really, only, defense, is to trust in the author of the Bible to uphold His promises of blessing for obedience, and make every effort to obey! It's very important to grasp the relationship between obedience and the state of being deceived. In these last days it's really so very critical for you and I to understand, who truly seek to be found worthy of becoming Y'shua's Bride at His coming. Consider the following scripture.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
The language used in that verse conceals from some and reveals to others the truth that everyone will absolutely be deceived, excepting the small number accounted as "the very elect," because it is not possible to deceive them.
What assurance do you have that you personally will be accounted among such a small number as the "very elect"? Strive to be found worthy of the Lord until your appointed end. Watch, according to Mark 13:37. What you will see as you watch in this hour is that all the sorceries of Babylon are being leveraged to deceive!
12 Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end,
