"The All Seeing Eye": Searching For The Light & Immortality -- Part II

      On Wednesday, I wrote about the history and symbolism of the Pineal Gland.  In researching this topic, I was amazed at the range of articles on this endocrine gland -- everything from occultic to scientific to the bizarrely spiritual. While I do not endorse all the references I have used, they have provided enough common ground that I think they warrant attention.  Today, I want to show you some rather unsettling theories that surround this mysterious gland, also referred to as the Third Eye, or the All-Seeing Eye, and why both ancient and modern cultures are so fascinated with it.

     In fact, you might have heard "the All-Seeing Eye" also referred to as "the Eye of Horus".  Horus was one of the most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion, who was worshipped from at least the late Pre-dynastic period through to Greco-Roman times.  He is most commonly understood as the son of the gods Isis and Osiris, and he plays a key role in the Osiris myth as Osiris's heir and the rival to Set, the murderer of Osiris.  But the one thing you need to understand is that he is just one more personification of the spirit of Nimrod, the original man of rebellion against God.  (Read my post on false gods and Nimrod to get the Biblical perspective).
     Then there was the Greek god, Hermes; the son of Zeus, who was considered a god of transitions and boundaries.  Mythology tells us Hermes wandered in a rocky, desolate place to meditate and pray. Following secret instructions of the Temple, he freed his higher consciousness from bondage to his physical senses. Thus released, his divine nature revealed to him The Mysteries. He beheld a terrible, awe-inspiring figure: the Great Dragon, with wings stretching across the sky and light streaming in all directions from its body.  The Great Dragon called Hermes by name, and asked why he meditated on the World Mystery. Terrified, Hermes prostrated himself before the Dragon, beseeching it to reveal its identity. The great creature replied it was Poimandres, the Mind of the Universe, Creative Intelligence, and Absolute Emperor of all.  Hermes besought Poimandres to disclose the nature of the universe and the constitution of the gods. The Dragon acquiesced, bidding Hermes hold its image in his mind. Immediately Poimandres' form changed. Where it had stood was a glorious, pulsating Radiant Light, the spiritual nature of the Great Dragon itself. Hermes was "raised" into the midst of this Divine Radiance and the material universe faded from his consciousness.
     Can you see how this search to discover a "higher consciousness" pervades all cultures, and has been sought after throughout history?  Can you see that man, in his desire to acquire this "All-Seeing Eye" is, in effect, trying to discover the mystery of God?  To become like God?  One only need to look at men like Nikola Tesla to see the beckoning call towards "higher consciousness".  In a post I wrote on Tesla, I discovered that he was aware, as a child, that there was an Energy in the Universe, and of trying to awake that energy, and figure out how it could influence people.  He told his interviewer,  "My eyesight and hearing are perfect and, I dare to say, stronger than other people. I hear the thunder from a hundred fifty miles away, and I see colors in the sky that others cannot see. This enlargement of vision and hearing, I had as a child. Later I consciously developed [it]."  I believe he was seeking this "enlargement" through the Pineal Gland.
      In an article by Naomi Astral, she writes that "the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye, has always been part of Earth's creation mythologies and mysteries. In Ancient Egypt, it was symbolised by the Eye of Horus, and conveyed protection, royal power, and good health. The symbol was passed down, through the ancient mystery teachings and can be found on the American dollar bill."
    She goes on to report that "the eye is the observer of reality - or the illusion of reality. This gland is activated by Light (her choice to capitalize the word), and it controls the various biorhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland, which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock, that determines our aging process."  You might be interested to know that this gland is larger in children, and as we age, it begins to calcify and harden.  This fact will become more important as I proceed in this article.
     But what I'm about to reveal to you was not only shocking, but frightening because of its implications.  The beneficial effects of the hormone melatonin (secreted by the pineal gland) have been part of the health supplement scene for some time.  In fact, high melatonin production is known to be synonymous with a high immune system, a low cancer risk, long life, energy, stamina, and according to many, enhanced spiritual awareness.  By now, you should be getting the picture ... many see the Pineal Gland as the doorway to longevity (if not immortality) and enhanced spiritual knowledge.  And this is where it gets a little creepy.
     According to the article I read, there is a tradition dating back to at least 1000 A.D. in which Arabs, and later Europeans, engaged in the practice of 'eating mummy'.  Ancient mummies were ground up and eaten for medicinal and occult practices.  The article maintains that certain secret societies still participate in the eating of "live pineal glands" from sacrifices, as part of their rites and ceremonies.  There was a time I would have dismissed such stories as beyond the realm of reality, but our Enemy has become ever bolder in showing us how he operates, so I am not quite ready to disregard these accusations.
     Apparently, this practice was widespread in Egypt and Western Europe and it consisted of countless ancient African mummies being burned, ground up and made into a kind of powder in order to be eaten. This incredible act of cannibalism was considered an effective medical practice and folk remedy. The belief became widely prevalent that cures could be obtained by eating ground-up preserved bodies. 'Eating mummy' was considered effective in treating contusions, coughs, epilepsy, migraines, ulcers, cases of poison and as a general panacea.
     I will admit that some of the information gleaned from these articles was beyond my ability to comprehend or embrace.  Occult and scientific writings are cited that seem so fantastical -- ancient races of people with three eyes; shamans that can see with their minds, rather than their eyes; cave-dwellers in Tibet who meditated while on mushrooms and knew of a galaxy years before scientists discovered it.... all associated in one way or another with the pineal gland.
     But I was truly astonished to run across old newspaper articles that referenced the eating of pineal glands.  One such article in 1914, ran in the Times Dispatch of Richmond, VA, and the headline read as follows:  "A Food That Does Away With Youth:  Remarkable Discoveries About a Gland in the Brain That May Enable Science Rapidly To Change Children Into Men, Chicks into Chickens, Calves into Cows, to Sate War's Appetite for Meat and Men." Another article ran in The Washington Times in 1915, and its headline read, "Backward Children Are Helped By Medicinal Use of Pineal Gland Extract."  It's not hard to see that there has long been an interest in consuming the pineal gland to enhance our health.  These scientists, doctors, and researchers would have made Ray Kurzweil proud!
     But perhaps the primary focus of the 20th and 21st Centuries has been in the area of aging and the quest for immortality.  We even have a medical field devoted to it ... gerontology.  In the study of aging -- or gerontology -- there are two main groups of thought. One group believes that aging is a natural process programmed in the body. Meanwhile, the other group believes aging is unnatural and it’s the result of cellular damage accumulated over time.
     Remember that in Part I of this article, I mentioned that some medical experts tell us that our pineal gland begins to calcify with age.  Actually, the human pineal gland grows in size until about 1–2 years of age, and scientists have actually shown that calcification begins at the age of 2.  But here is a truly amazing fact:  the pineal gland is activated in a fetus at 49 days!  This most powerful gland that controls our hormones and sexuality is active and functional at 49 days after conception! Many scientists have expressed that it is at its most potent state in utero.  And that leads me down a path I did not want to go -- Planned Parenthood.
     Remember the recent undercover Planned Parenthood video scandal?  The Center for Medical Progress began releasing a series of videos about the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, which featured executives and staffers at Planned Parenthood and affiliated businesses discussing and demonstrating human organ harvesting and the fetal body part trade.  Thanks to a website, called The Federalist, I was able to go to one source to find a summary of all those videos and get a pretty good picture of what the harvesting was all about.
     Time after time, in the videos, PP representatives make mention of their desire to deliver the head of a fetus without crushing it; to procure "tissues like brain, livers, thymus, pancreas, heart, lungs ... and sell the parts to researchers."  In video #7 (which the media claims doesn't exist), Holly McDonnell, an ex-procurement technician, talks about harvesting a late-term abortion:  "… its nose was very pronounced, it had eyelids, and its mouth was pronounced. And then since the fetus was still intact, she said, ‘okay, well, this is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure brains.’ ”  Is this a secret reason that some legislators are seeking to allow late-term abortions?
     I could go on and on, but I'm sure you get the picture.  So, is it too far-fetched to think that this harvesting of fetal brains could be tied to the procurement of pineal glands as some kind of magical cure for aging?  I mean, history shows it has been a practice for 1,000 years!  And with all the interest by transhumanists and the scientific community to achieve immortality, could this be an underlying benefit for the abortion industry?  I hate to admit it, but I believe the evil that is in the world will stop at nothing to offend God and His creation.  Just Google "eating pineal gland to prolong life" and see all the results that pop up!
     And, as if mutilating fetuses doesn't disgust God enough, there is always the search for an alternative spiritual experience; one in which man seeks to establish his own connection to the heavenly realms through his own power.  In essence, we are still in rebellion to God, and trying to become our own gods.
     As I have stated numerous times, nothing has changed since the Garden of Eden.  We are still rebelling, and trying to become equals with our Creator.  We are trying to set our own boundaries and lifespan, and seeking a more superior spiritual awakening.  But like Lucifer and Nimrod, and all who have come in a similar spirit, we will find that there is one set of Laws that govern the universe and all the heavenly realms.  In the end, it is His rules by which we must play.  For all the knowledge, and increased health, and "higher consciousness" that we gain, it will never be enough to usurp His Sovereignty.  And woe to those who try.

1 Timothy 6:16   "Who alone has immortality, Who dwells in unapproachable Light, Whom no one has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen."

Is It Time To Believe The Conspiracy Theories Yet?

     With perhaps the most important election in our lifetime just months before us, I would surmise that more than a few Americans are contemplating the various conspiracy theories that have swirled around our political and global consciousness for the past few decades.  How many of you are taking a closer look at the speculations that suggest a collusion between secret societies such as the Illuminati and our own presidential candidates?  And if you are a Christian, are you comparing such machinations with the ancient Bible prophecies found in the Book of Revelation?  If you haven't at least given it a thought, then I might suggest that you do a little research.  It's all too intriguing to dismiss.
     Since beliefs about the Illuminati vary widely, it is important that we agree on exactly who or what the Illuminati is, right?  I found one of the most concise and clear definitions presented on a Christian website called GotQuestions.org.  Here is their explanation:  The Illuminati began as a secret society under the direction of Jesuit priests. Later, a council of five men, one for each of the points on the pentagram, formed what was called “The Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria.” They were high order Luciferian Freemasons, thoroughly immersed in mysticism and Eastern mental disciplines, seeking to develop the super powers of the mind. Their alleged plan and purpose is world domination for their lord (who precisely this lord is varies widely -- although I will go out on a limb and suggest that it is Lucifer, himself). The Illuminati are alleged to be the primary motivational forces encouraging global governance, a one-world religious ethic, and centralized control of the world’s economic systems. Organizations such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the International Criminal Court are seen as tentacles of the Illuminati. According to the Illuminati conspiracy, the Illuminati are the driving force behind efforts to brainwash the gullible masses through thought control and manipulation of beliefs, through the press, the educational curriculum, and the political leadership of the nations.
     So, see why there are some that are highly concerned about who our next President might be?  Furthermore, the definition of the Illuminati must include their goals and ultimate objectives.  Again, GotQuestions.org explains:  The Illuminati supposedly have a private board of elite, interlocking delegates who control the world’s major banks. They create inflations, recessions, and depressions and manipulate the world markets, supporting certain leaders and coups and undermining others to achieve their overall goals. The supposed goal behind the Illuminati conspiracy is to create and then manage crises that will eventually convince the masses that globalism, with its centralized economic control and one-world religious ethic, is the necessary solution to the world’s woes. This structure, usually known as the “New World Order,” will, of course, be ruled by the Illuminati.
     Now, if you don't know Christ, this should be alarming enough.  And, of course, there are always those who will shout you down with the latest "facts" that come from Facebook, the Huffington Post, the popular international movie star, or the learned college professor with his own twisted agenda.  But with a knowledge of the Bible and what it prophecies, you can see how the existence of such an elite global power would suggest they could be used as an effective tool of Satan to bring about his End Times tyranny and domination.
     And, if I might digress for a moment ... for those who laugh off the Masons and their influence as any kind of evil organization, you might want to take a closer look at the oaths they take, and their allegiance to Lucifer and a whole passel of false gods (Baal, Baphomet, Horus, and Apollo among them).  So, if the Illuminati/Mason connection is there, and they have had their fingerprints all over our political elections since the beginning, perhaps we should not dismiss the rumors as conspiracy, and we should start considering how close we are on the path towards the Biblical forecast for the End Times.
     Whether it concerns the jihadist invasion of the West; the rumors of Civil and Racial wars; the conspiracy theories surrounding FEMA camps and the Police State; or the Pope and apostate preachers pushing a message that all religions lead to God, it all paints a picture of the wars, famine, death and persecution that the Bible tells us is coming.  Our borders are nearly nonexistent, the world's currencies are collapsing, faith in Jesus is mocked, and governments are in chaos.  Sure looks like the Tribulation to me, with all its signposts of one world-wide government, one currency, no borders, and one world religion.  Are these just all conspiracies, or are they destined to become our reality?  No one can say for sure.
     But this I am prepared to say ... if the Illuminati is real and is running their game plan, they will definitely experience the same fate as their lord, Lucifer.  They will be cast into the lake of fire, to be tormented day and night, forever and ever (Revelation 20:10).  And, as Christians, we must not fear.  We must trust that God has sovereignly allowed all these developments, and they are not outside of His overall plan.  God is in control, not the Illuminati!  There is no plot or secret plan that these evil men (through their evil master) could ever devise that would in any way restrain God's hand or His sovereign plan for the world.  We must always remember that we are from God ... and that He will use evil perpetuated against His own to glorify Himself.  There is a purpose for everything that God sovereignly allows.  So, whether conspiracy theory or not, we can take heart!  We who are steadfast in the midst of world chaos and Satan's schemes will declare the Holiness of our God and His Mighty Power.  We will see the schemes of elite men and our unholy Enemy dashed, and all their conspiring and plotting come to naught.
     I suppose that it is natural to discuss these conspiracy theories, and debate their veracity and timing ... but I would rather be aware of God's prophetic clock (with an eye towards signs and warnings) and look forward to the day when His judgment comes upon the earth and such evil-minded schemes give way to His Glorious and Righteous Rule.  It's a day that can't come soon enough for me!

Ephesians 5: 12-13    "For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret. But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light."

Entertainment News: From Conspiracy To Collaboration

     I have made my views on the current state of entertainment well-known.  While some may think that movies, TV and videos reflect our culture, I happen to believe that they are often used to drive our societal opinions and values.
     I really try to stay away from the popular and tasteless fare that is fed to the masses, but there were two shows that I was curious about this week, because I know they will have tremendous impact upon the public.  The first was a revival of the well-liked 90s-era sci-fi mystery, X-Files; and the second was the premiere of a new show called Lucifer.  (At first, I determined that I would not deem to give my approval by even watching any show that appeared to glamorize the Enemy.  But then I felt that I could not truthfully warn against watching it, if I did not know the substance of the show).
     So, here's my thoughts after watching both programs .... I almost found it comical in the first episode of X-Files to see how hard the writers worked to get in every conspiracy that we have been faced with since the show last aired.  I must admit that I was not a devoted or enthusiastic fan of the first round of alien-infused adventures that starred agents Mulder and Scully.  But I was curious to see  how the show handled all the subterfuge and schemes that have become almost mainstream in the last  15 years.
     The character Fox Mulder enumerates all the plots that have him spooked these days.  He voices his concerns over the government's growing intrusion in our lives, including constant surveillance of us through drones and advanced technology.  And speaking of technology, Mulder even goes so far as to suggest that the rapid rate of technological developments may be alien-assisted, or at least inspired by knowledge derived from aliens.  He's also not afraid to point out the militarization of the police, nor their objective to squelch such conspiracy theorists as himself.  He actually says, at one point, "The government lies as a matter of policy"!  It was as if all the things alluded to in the original series have now become accepted as fact.  And the direction that the first two episodes took toward giving credibility to alien abductions and "seeding the planet" with human/alien hybrid babies screamed Genesis 6:1-4 to anyone paying attention.  It will be interesting to see where the next episodes take the audience.
     Then there was the very slick presentation of the new TV character Lucifer Morningstar.  It was almost sickening to see how they glamorized the primary Fallen Angel.  From his arrival on scene in a classic black 1953 Corvette (with a license plate that read Fallen1), to his suave British accent, and almost James Bond-ish appeal, it was evident that God's enemy was going to be presented as irresistible and captivating.
     He apparently owns a nightclub, complete with whorish women and a seductive bartender who constantly reminds him that he should return to hell and his duties there.  But the devil in him longs to escape that prison and punish the wicked on earth; exposing their sins and helping the good guys fight evil.
     Although there is much about Lucifer that is blasphemous ... his constant referral to God as "Father" and "Dad" diminishes the Holiness of our God and belittles His position.  That's just for starters.  And to paint the real Lucifer as simply an adventurous, spoiled, and naughty child of God who was unjustly cast out of Heaven is to totally misrepresent the very real danger of cooperating with him.   The fact that Lucifer became Satan was never addressed, nor were the depths of his hostile rebellion against God, The Father, truly revealed.
     The one thing that the writers of this show did get right was how easy it was for Lucifer to beguile and entice people to reveal their deepest inner desires, and how he manipulated that to get what he wanted.  But then they have twisted that characteristic into showing how Lucifer simply wants to bring forth the Truth; knowledge that only he can bring forth to the world.  This is the classic Gnostic version of the Biblical story and Lucifer.
     Gnostics believe that Lucifer is the liberator of man and the world.  He offers wisdom, the liberating Gnosis (knowledge of spiritual mysteries) that wakes man up and saves him.  He is the Light-Bearer, the embodiment of enlightenment and reason.  (It is no coincidence that the word Illuminati is from a Latin word which means “enlightened"... just sayin'.)  The Gnostics revered Lucifer as the beneficent god who gifted mankind with self-consciousness and awareness of his actions.  Lucifer is both friend and brother to his fellow man; and perhaps the most dangerous aspect of this vision of Lucifer is the aspect of "reconciliation of opposites"; that it's okay to work with Lucifer for the betterment of mankind.
     And that is exactly how this attractive character of Lucifer Morningstar is being showcased.  But the very real sad and scary truth of this glitzy TV show is that it is the product of those who worship the real Lucifer, the Enemy of God; and its purpose is to fool the millions who will not only fall for the false image of Satan, but will fall for his lies and worship him, turning away from the knowledge of the One True God.
     I predict that this show will become a runaway hit and a darling of the New Age crowd.  It is just one more step towards our culture's rebellion against our Creator, and brings us one step closer to our judgment.  It's pretty telling, don't you think, that we are being exposed to these two shows at the same time... the first announces that the alien (fallen angel) agenda is real; and the second heralds the appearance of the chief Fallen Angel, himself!

Luke 12:5     “But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him.”
