Since I began this blog, I have periodically run this post that I originally wrote in 2012, shortly after I launched this site. The post was based on a theory proposed by the late Don Harkin, former Editor of The Idaho Observer. Mr. Harkin suggested the existence of a world system of Power-Elites that the masses don't comprehend because these Power-Elites have cleverly developed a virtual pasture so green that few people seldom, if ever, bother to look up from where they are grazing to notice that they are being led over the cliff. It was Mr. Harkin's conjecture that there were at least 8 veils of understanding that a person needed to penetrate in order to see the real purpose of our existence.
From that first posting in 2012 to the second posting in 2016, my understanding that each level of these "veils" included spiritual battles had increased exponentially, and I added a "new perspective" to my original perception. I still think each of these stages exists and is valid, and in order to
progress to a higher understanding of just how we are to maneuver
through this existence called life, we must be able to pierce each
successive veil and move to the next level. It is part of our human
journey on this earth... only now, I see this journey with the added
benefit of spiritual eyes. So, now that we are approaching 2020, it's time to revisit this interesting
speculation, and see if we grasp any new revelations that we can add to Mr. Harkins'
original conjecture. If this is not the first time you've read this post on my blog, I'm also interested to know how many of you have grown in your understanding, as well.
My 2016 Perspective: All this
remains true, but now I see that there are spiritual forces behind those
involved in the government, Mainstream Media, and "experts", or voices
of authority. Of those of us within the 10% who form their own opinion,
how many understand that politics is not the answer -- that our power
will not come from our affiliation with whomever wins elections, but
from Jesus Christ? And what small percentage of that 10% realizes that
our time on this earth should not be spent supporting man-made power
structures, but using our power from Christ to "do the things He has
done, only greater"? (John 14:12).
My 2020 Perspective: In the last four years I have grown from an understanding that I have spiritual power and authority transferred from my Savior, Jesus Christ, to a revelation that I am a citizen of Heaven and an Ambassador for the Kingdom of God and His government here on earth. I am to be a member of Christ's Ecclesia (governing body of Christians who implement God's laws/government in our culture and nation). I now understand that our 21st Century model of a Church building full of Christians has not accomplished what Christ intended when He trained and equipped His disciples to go into the world and heal the sick, cast out demons, cleanse the spiritually unclean, raise the dead, and spread the Gospel of the Kingdom.
The Second Veil (2012) = History. Once we've pierced the first veil, there will be 10% of us who
will explore the world of history, the relationship between man and
government, which will then lead to the meaning of self-government through
constitutional and common law. Ninety percent of this group will live
and die without going on to pierce the third veil.
My 2016 Perspective: The
Constitution is no longer my route to real freedom. Man's laws and
self-government will only get me so far. My true freedom lies in
letting Jesus heal my spiritual wounds, and recognizing that I don't
have to suffer the "fiery darts" of the Enemy. The history that
consumes me now are the experiences of those -- both from the ancient
world, and the modern -- who have learned what it means to transcend the
tyranny and oppression from the spiritual realm to walk in the
footsteps of Jesus. That is true freedom.
My 2020 Perspective: The Constitution is being undermined and usurped as Evil begins to come out from behind the veil and boldly reveal itself. Man-made laws that have governed in times past are ignored and I now understand that if we Christians do not stand up and govern as an Ecclesia, then someone else will write our laws. We can see that in the Colorado law that does not require gender specification on a birth certificate. We are in new [and increasingly terrifying] territory when it comes to what history has shown to be traditional forms of law and government. The gloves are coming off.
The Third Veil (2012) = Resources of the World. Of the group
that pierces this veil, 10% of us will come to realize that the masses
are controlled by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose old
world assets have been manipulated to become the foundation upon which
the world's economy is currently indebted. (Think Rothschilds,
Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, the Royal Monarchs). But sadly, 90% of this
group will never pierce the fourth veil.
My 2016 Perspective: Yes, the
masses are controlled by these extremely wealthy and powerful families;
and behind them are the spiritual forces of wickedness and evil. I
believe that they have sold their souls for earthly wealth and power
that will prove false when the Day of Judgment comes.
My 2020 Perspective: Those that have held this control are feeling threatened as Jesus's Remnant is awakening to the truth of their power and is fighting back spiritually. Therefore, the Wicked are accelerating their evil through sex trafficking, child sacrifice, and sex rituals, as well as reallocating resources of rare earth minerals to their advantage.
The Fourth Veil (2012) = The Illuminati, Freemasonry and other secret societies.
There are 10% of us that recognize these societies use symbols and
perform ceremonies that transfer mysterious knowledge that is used to
keep us ordinary people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to
the oldest bloodlines on earth. This has been seen frequently at Super
Bowl halftime shows (Beyonce flashing "the Rockefeller" sign; Madonna
sporting symbols of the occult) and during the Grammy's (Nikki Minaj's
ode to "Roman", the demon whom she says possesses her). Just check out
the Youtube videos for each of these demonstrations! But once again,
90% of those who have reached this level of understanding will never
pierce the fifth veil.
My 2016 Perspective: Boy, has my
understanding of this grown in the last few years! The Lord has shown
me just how much devastation has been sown on families steeped in these
secret societies. The oaths and curses taken during secret ritual
ceremonies have resulted in great oppression among many Christians, who
don't even know these secret societies have permeated their families or their Churches! And
the evidence that these societies have infiltrated our entertainment
industry is overwhelming. I am literally seeing the signs and symbols
everywhere I look throughout our culture. Sadly, I believe that our
country is steeped in the occult mysticism associated with these groups,
and they are influencing every area of our lives.
My 2020 Perspecrtive: These last years have seen Mark and I grow in our ministry of Inner Healing and we certainly have seen an increase in the iniquity in family lines that demonstrate the characteristics of demonic oppression. And it is so much more in the open! People are now willing to reveal the torment they are under and are desperate for a solution. So many people are suffering that it is almost becoming mainstream among our society. So, now we are no longer able to ignore the evil permeating our homes and families. What are we going to do about it? Is the Church willing to finally get on board with the knowledge that evil exists, spiritual warfare is real, and we have to fight back?
The Fifth Veil (2012) = Technological advances by these Secret Societies.
I may lose some of you at this point, but I urge you to do your own
research and study the Bible in depth. There are hints of the knowledge
behind this fifth veil, but you have to be willing to connect the dots.
There are 10% who make it this far in their understanding who learn
that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically that they
are able to do things that were considered science fiction just decades
ago. The inventions of Ray Kurzweil and his prediction of "man's
singularity with computers" is an example of such advanced technology.
But what's interesting is that this technology is actually ancient, and
compares to what Nimrod was trying to accomplish at the Tower of Babel;
namely to become like God. Are we getting dangerously close to that
concept again? Nearly 90% will never get beyond this understanding to
the sixth veil.
My 2016 Perspective: To say that
technology has surpassed science fiction is putting it mildly.
Human-animal hybrids are being created in Great Britain, and a surgeon
plans to reanimate human corpses. Books are being written that tell us
immortality is accessible to everyone, outside of any religious
worldview. Inventors and artists openly admit that they are
"channeling" spiritual sources of knowledge. All this is being
downloaded from entities in the spiritual realm to control and deceive
the human race. We better understand who we're dealing with.
My 2020 Perspective: It's just more of the same and at a faster pace. Pedophilia and child pornography rings use technology to spread their evil; people are so intrigued with getting their technology "fix" quicker and easier, that we have gone from cell phones to watches and implants can't be far behind. There is still talk of moving our brains to "the Cloud", and Siri and Alexa know everything we say and do. How long until we're dealing with the real-life scenario portrayed in 1984's Terminator movie?
My 2016 Perspective: My, how far
we've come in these last three-and-a-half years! The growth of the
remnant of the Church who understands the truth of Genesis 6 has been
astounding! I know that there are "spiritual monsters" and they are
called demons. I have encountered them in deliverance sessions, and
seen them stare out of the eyes of people who had no idea they were
being oppressed by them. Savage and brutal and bizarre attacks upon
people are increasing and are evidence that the Enemy is bringing the
spiritual battle to our physical world. Although, yes, these demons are
real, we should have no fear because He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.
My 2020 Perspective: I think perhaps the most surprising new revelation I have received in the last nearly four years is the cooperation between evil men and Satan's demonic forces. TV shows like Stranger Things may appear to be a form of conspiracy entertainment, but it is based on real-life government experiments in the so-called Montauk Project, involving space, time, and opening portals into other dimensions -- which, naturally leads to the question of what is coming through those portals and are Christians awake and prepared to do battle in these spiritual realms?
The Seventh Veil (2012) = Peace of the Lord. If you have made it this far and can conceive of the concepts behind the
sixth veil, then perhaps you can see that what waits for us behind the seventh. It's hard to imagine, but I can foresee a small group of people whose
soul and spirit is so evolved that they can exist on this earth, yet be unafraid of
the evil that abounds in this realm. The only way I can describe it is
to have such peace from God that you are unafraid of death.
My 2016 Perspective: Actually, my
perspective has moved in a new direction on this veil. It's not such a
small group that sees the evil ascending on the earth from the second
heaven, or spiritual realm. These last few years has seen an amazing
growth in this knowledge within the Body of Christ. It's as if the Holy
Spirit has done a massive data dump upon Christians! We not only know and discern this spiritual warfare, but we also have been given the
knowledge that we have the Authority of Jesus to fight [in this war]
through the Power of the Holy Spirit. And that's where our Peace comes
from... knowing that we can rebuke the devil and he will flee; knowing
that the Lord is our banner in this fight and goes before us; and we
know that Jesus will not only never leave us nor forsake us, but He who
began a good work in us will complete it. That is called Peace!
My 2020 Perspective: This knowledge of supernatural peace has only grown! Once again, I am seeing panic among the general public, and even among some of the "religious" Christians, as they once again sense that the noose is tightening around our comfortable way of life. But those of us who pierced the previous six veils have journeyed for awhile now in the peace that only comes from understanding [and accepting] that evil will increase before Jesus comes back to administer His swift justice. In what might be perceived as an unorthodox mindset, we actually receive the certainty of advancing evil as a sign that our Lord is near to returning. We are ready and both physically and spiritually prepared. We are no longer restive in the midst of the anticipation of evil, but are serene and calm in the certainty of our victory.
My 2016 Perspective: Yes, a
personal, intimate relationship is necessary to tap into that Power, but
it is incumbent upon each of us to know that it is available to us. We
are not to be mindless robots, sitting idly by waiting for God to win
this war all by Himself. We are created in His image, exhorted to
imitate Christ, and called to an inheritance in Christ. He dwells in
us! That energy, authority and life force are not to be squandered, but
used to gain ground in defeating the Enemy in our lives!
My 2020 Perspective: The knowledge that we are to have a personal, intimate relationship with Christ is now seen through an entirely new lens. He is our King, and we serve Him in His kingdom here on earth. He is our model, and we are to hear and see His directives on managing this earth, just as He followed everything the Father showed and told Him. This picture of citizenship in the Kingdom of God on earth still includes love, compassion, mercy, and grace ... but it has expanded to taking back territory from the kingdom of darkness in people's lives. Mankind was given dominion over the earth at our creation, and it is time we step into that mandate and take up our mantle of authority, using the power of Heaven through the Holy Spirit. who resides in us.
So, as you can see, with each veil of understanding that is pierced, the
number of people "who see" gets exponentially smaller. When I first
wrote this blog post over 7 years ago, I saw mainly through
"worldly" eyes. I was focused on "the low information voter", and the
gullible citizens who I saw as useful idiots and tools of the state. I
actually thought my vote really mattered and changing the politics of
the nation would solve the world's problems. I didn't see the spiritual
When I reassessed my understanding three-and-a-half years ago, I can honestly say that I believed I was at that Eighth veil, and I
was so grateful to my Lord and the Holy Spirit for helping me to see through
the murkiness of the veils and how they obscured my vision of God's
Truth. I saw that my existence here on earth was more than just this
physical realm, and my victory in this life depended on my readiness to
work with Jesus and the Holy Spirit to do battle with the spiritual
realm. I truly knew that I did not battle against flesh and blood,
but had the Authority and Power of Jesus and the Holy Spirit to free
myself of spiritual bondage.
Now, with an additional three-and-a-half years under my belt, I realize that my comprehension of that eighth veil was rudimentary. Yes, it was important to know the true intent of Jesus's Great Commission for us Believers. And, yes, it is not only our privilege, but our responsibility to work with Him and the Holy Spirit to "set the captives free" from their demonic bondage to Satan's lies. But we aren't to stop there. Once we are free, we are to use that energy, authority, and life force that is "God in us" to continue the purpose that Jesus came for -- to re-establish this earth and its inhabitants under the governmental authority of the Kingdom of God.
Jesus says in Luke 4:43, I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose. And then He says, in Matthew 24:14, And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. I now clearly see that part of my responsibility as a citizen of the Kingdom of God is to speak into people so that they achieve the entry point into the Kingdom -- which is Salvation. Then I must work with Jesus to get them free from the lies of the Enemy. And then I am to equip and train them to do the same for others, educating them about what it means to be a citizen of Heaven on earth. That is the entire Gospel of the Kingdom! And then the end of Satan's kingdom will come when the Lord returns with His righteous judgment!
The largest part of "the Church" has stopped at Salvation! Until we can spread the good news of the Kingdom, Christ will not return. And unless you're free from Satan's lies, you cannot comprehend the Kingdom concept and your role as a citizen. Can you see it? First comes Salvation, then Freedom, then your position and responsibility in the Kingdom!
I will admit that it's a long road to progress through these veils,
and if you are just beginning to awaken to their reality, then I hope
you can see that living, breathing and thinking are just the beginning
to greater understanding. And there is nothing to fear... we know that
victory is ours in the next life. Until then, it an honor to stand for
our Lord and represent Him as Kingdom citizens to all we come in contact with, and to help
others to push through the veils. As we teach them the meaning of each
obstruction, and show them how to move to the next stage, it will be one
less obstacle between them and God, and Christ's return. That is a goal worthy of effort by
2 Corinthians 3:16-17 But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
