I originally wrote on this topic 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 then revised my "perspective" again in 2019, as the realities of our existence were changing dramatically. And now, here we are closing in on 2022, and if the sheeple are still convinced the virtual pasture is as green as ever, it is critical that they be warned before the pasture ceases to exist at all.
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 believe the human race is running out of time to reach that eighth veil. It's critical 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, then I hope you've pierced your way through the veils to true enlightenment. So, let's see how far we've come in the last decade...
The First Veil (2012) = Politics. There are over 7 billion+
people on the planet. Most of them will live and die without seriously
thinking about anything other than what it takes to live and breathe for
one more day. That means that 90% of all humanity will live behind
this first veil and never pierce it. That leaves 10% of us who will
vote, be active in our societies and have an opinion. Our opinions are
often shaped by government officials, the Mainstream Media, or other "experts" who claim
to be voices of authority. But of those with an opinion, 90% will never
really think for themselves and will adopt the opinion of others, while
10% will pierce the second veil and move forward in their thinking.
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 2019 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 Ekklesia (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 pread the Gospel of the Kingdom.
As we approach 2022: The dirty veil of politics has come off, and we see all the ugliness of the Power Elites manipulating the puppets of man-made government. Trust is at an all-time low. Corruption is no longer hidden, and the average citizen's voice is close to being silenced. Tyranny and oligarchy are the governing policies of the day. If you are part of the 90% still stuck in politics as the solution, I fear you're running out of time to reach the 8th veil!
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 2019 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 Ekklesia, 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.
As we approach 2022: We are dangerously close to repeating history because we have not learned the lessons of the past. It's been a short 81 years since the evil at Auschwitz concentration camp was perpetrated upon defenseless Jews. They were subjected to vile medical experiments, with the goal of complete eradication. In the last century, we have seen democratic countries adopt socialistic and communistic models of government, resulting in the disappearance of personal freedoms and liberties. Consider for yourself, how far down those roads we have come.
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 2019 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.
As we approach 2022: Nothing has changed since 2019, except that the battle is even more heated between Good and Evil. With the world trending towards higher dependency on technology, the acquisition of rare earth minerals, which are crucial to the manufacture of many hi-tech products, has become extremely important. Nations like China, Russia, the U.S., India, and Australia are scrambling to increase their reserves, as worries over the supply chain become heightened. In addition, Water is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity, with state and federal governments regulating the use of water on private property. Watch for these two resources to be in the headlines.
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 2019 Perspective: 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?
As we approach 2022: From my own perspective, I have added the Anti-Christ Spirit to this phalanx of evildoers. In fact, it is the Anti-Christ Spirit that feeds the hunger for power and wealth and control of the world's populations in these occultic and ungodly organizations. More and more people [including Christians] are becoming educated about what is behind the deceptive images they project. But now is the time to start learning how to defeat them in the spirit. They are so entrenched in the world, that only with the help of God and His strategies, can they be unmasked and exposed for who they ultimately serve.
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 2019 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?
As we approach 2022: It is my personal discernment that these secret power-hungry Elites are so covetous of world domination that they will explore greater technological advantages to overpower and destroy populations to maintain their wealth and control. Nanotechnology, neural link technology, and all kinds of emerging technologies that we haven't even heard of yet, will soon be unleashed on millions of unsuspecting humans. Stay educated!
The Sixth Veil (2012) = Aliens and Monsters may be real. It is
going to take a huge leap for the 10% who get to this level of
understanding. But if you study your Bible closely, you will see
mention of fallen angels mating with earthly women to give birth to
Nephalim (Giants) (Genesis 6:4 and 2 Samuel 21:20, for example). There
are many modern-day Biblical scholars who are prepared to say that the
minotaurs of old and the UFO and alien sightings of today are evidence
of these fallen angels.
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 2019 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?
As we approach 2022: Again, I reiterate that the Anti-Christ Spirit is active in the world, and he is preparing the way for the Beast to make his appearance on the earth. And that preparation includes demons and forces of evil to infiltrate the human race, governments, and even the Church. If anyone still thinks these entities are not real, all I can say is, Heaven help them -- because they're about to need it!
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
soul and spirit is so evolved that they can exist on this earth, yet be
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 2019 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.
As we approach 2022: Actually, I'm seeing the Body of Christ being divided into two spiritual camps. After coming to the knowledge that Ephesians 6 is true, and that we are in a spiritual battle, this first group has been so spiritually devastated by the chaos, fear, and death associated with the pandemic of C-19, that they want to retreat to a status of Prayer Warriors. Nothing wrong with that! We certainly need intercessors and people to lift our prayers to the throne of God. But they struggle to find their Peace in the Lord. But the second group that is in the spiritual battle have come to realize that we cannot drop our guard; that we have to take the fight to the Enemy; and that this is the time to dedicate our lives to the cause of the Kingdom. There is Peace in knowing that we were created for a time such as this, and Jesus will equip us to go farther in our strategies than ever before! There is Peace in knowing He is that close!
That brings us to Harkin's Eighth veil (2012), which can only be
the pure energy, authority and life force that is God. We can only hope
to tap into that Power, and I think the closest we can come to that is
to seek a personal, intimate relationship with the One True God, the
Ruler of the Universe and abide in Him.
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 2019 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.
As we approach 2022: With all that we have endured these last two years since a global pandemic engulfed the human race, it is hard to understand how anyone could not be seeking God. He, alone is our answer to the Evil that is coming hard and fast against us. And it is not partial to whom it destroys. So, if people are not closing in on piercing through to this last veil, then I can only think how hopeless and scary the world must seem. And for all of us who have arrived at this pinnacle of understanding, it weighs heavy on our hearts and spirits to see people who are still positioned at the first or third, or even the fifth veil.
Because, with each veil of understanding that is pierced, the number of people "who see" gets exponentially smaller. When I first wrote this blog post nearly 10 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 component.
When I reassessed my understanding in 2016, 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 in the spiritual realms. 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.
Then, in 2019, I had grown to 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.
But I did not foresee how quickly and destructively the Enemy would partner with evil men to try to bring about an apocalypse and initiate the mass extermination of millions of people. They're like sharks in the water, and they taste blood. So, it is imperative that we humans fight the fear that is being engendered, and put on our spiritual armor. We are literally in a battle for the earth -- it's the kingdom of darkness against the Kingdom of Light. Not only is the destiny of this current world at stake, but every single person's eternal destiny is at risk. It is to be won or lost depending on the decisions and the actions you make today! It's critical that we push through these veils of understanding and reach the summit -- and then help others to push through for their personal victory. It's not too late, but the time is short, and it is the most critical time of our lives!
2 Corinthians 3:16 But the moment one turns to the Lord with an open heart, the veil is lifted and they see.
