The advertising industry, a prominent and powerful industry, engages in deceptive subliminal advertising which most us are unaware of. By bypassing our unconscious mind using subliminal techniques, advertisers tap into the vulnerabilities surrounding our unconscious mind, manipulating and controlling us in many ways. Since the 1940’s subliminal advertising blossomed until now, when you can find subliminals in every major advertisement and magazine cover. Legislation against the advertisers has had no effect in curbing the use of subliminals. In this Information Age, it seems people are no longer in control of the people. The ones in control are the ones with knowledge (as usual). In this case, the advertisers have it; you don’t - Dr. Lechnar ‘Subliminal Advertising and Modern Day Brainwashing’
Talk show host and outspoken homosexual advocate Ellen DeGeneres appears in a commercial with 666 symbolism abounding. Watch the opening seconds of the commercial and see if you can notice it.
If you pause at 2 seconds into the video, you will notice the front “sale sign” in the store has “666” in large font on it. At 3 seconds, the sign on the right side of the store (behind the employee) is visible with 666 as well as the small sign on the left wall’s shelves. 4 seconds, the sign on the back shelves becomes visible and also has “666.”
The number 666 is detailed in the book of Revelation Chapter 13. And it is distinctly linked to the Antichrist, Satanically-empowered, false Messianic figure who will be the world’s foremost political leader in the end times, as well as being worshiped by the unbelieving world as God. With full control over the world’s economy, the Antichrist will install a new system of commerce where all buying and selling is controlled by a “mark” in the right hand or forehead of every person on the planet under penalty of death. In describing this system the Bible states:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:16-18)
We explain the Biblical connection between the number 666 to the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and its promotion in pop culture in our article “666 – The Mark of the Beast: Humanity’s Ultimate Choice.” As society moves further from God, Biblical moral values and enters into an age of immorality and the occult, symbolism serves to implant images and ideas in the subconscious mind in order to accept those ideas or desire them in the conscious mind in the future. And now even Satan and the Antichrist is being promoted into the minds of the public today. This makes it all the more important to stand up for the truth of the Bible and share it with others. While the JCPenny ads have stirred controversy because One Million Moms, a pro-family group protesting DeGeneres, who is gay, being the JCPenny spokesperson, the not so subtle Mark of the Beast symbolism ad is not getting similar attention.
The good news is that just as the Bible prophesies the future Antichrist, it also prophesies of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, who will defeat the Antichrist, end his reign of terror and restore peace and righteousness to this world. And in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, there is hope and victory over all of the tricks of Satan. In the book of 1 John, the Bible discusses the “spirit of antichrist” that is already in the world and precedes the true Antichrist who will come. And the scriptures reassure believers that: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” When you become a Born Again Christian, you receive God’s Holy Spirit and share in Christ’s victory won on the cross. Share the Gospel and use discernment (and maybe it’s time to stop watching so much television).
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. – 2 Corinthians 2:11
