“The Superbowl is kind of like the Holy of Holies in America. I’ll come at halfway of the “church experience” and I’m gonna have to deliver a sermon. It’ll have to be very impactful.” - Madonna commenting before her Super Bowl Performance on the Anderson Cooper Show.
In what could possibly be the most-watched occult ritual in television history, Madonna’s Super Bowl Halftime performance was a 12 minute display of Satanic symbolism, Illuminati ritual and blasphemy against the God of the Bible. Madonna’s “sermon” to the world on the TV’s biggest stage (the Super Bowl) was another step in indoctrinating society back into the ancient pagan Mystery religions and celebration of Satan’s ultimate seduction – that humans can become gods.
Enter The Goddess
From the opening moments, the theme of the performance was established: the occult quest of man to become gods. Madonna entered seated on a throne, being pulled by hundreds of men dressed in ancient Roman military garb. The first thing to notice are the six wings that were covering her throne as she entered. This is a direct take off of the Biblical description of God’s Holy ark and throne.
In the book of Exodus, the Lord instructed Moses to construct the Ark of the Covenant – the golden box that would hold the 10 commandments given to Moses directly from God (in addition to Aaron, the High Priest’s staff and manna, the food given to the Israelites by The Lord). On top of the Ark was the “mercy seat”, which represented God’s throne. The Lord in giving the details to Moses stated:
17And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. 18And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. 19And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. 20And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. 21And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. 22And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
The significance of cherubim or winged angels sitting on either side of the mercy seat was that they covered The Lord. The Bible states that God’s presence is so powerful that a mere sinful human being cannot look directly upon Him. Thus the wings of the cherubim cover the throne to allow Moses or the High Priest to communicate with God directly. It was a sign of God’s power as Creator of the universe and all life.
This is confirmed in the book of Isaiah, when the prophet has a vision of Heaven and the throne of God:
Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
The Sepraphim is another type of Heavenly winged creature. And here we see that they have six wings. In Madonna’s entrance, large wings covered her throne, shielding the public from her presence. The inference is that she, Madonna, is a goddess, making her grand entrance. Interestingly, in the book of Ezekiel, there is a passage addressed to Satan that describes Satan, before he sinned as “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth” again referring to the status of shielding the glory of The Lord.
As Madonna stood on her throne, she wore a horned helmet, which is an ancient pagan symbol of being a “god-king.” The use of the horned helmet as a symbol of godhood dates back to Sumerian culture, the oldest recorded civilization. The great ancient historian, Herodotus stated that the horned helmet is the “sure sign of divinity” (The History of Herodotus: A new English version, ed. Volume 1 By Herodotus p 480). With the Egyptian theme so prominent in the performance it seemed that Madonna was invoking the goddess, Isis, whose name means “she of the throne.” All these themes go back to the original deception of Satan in the Garden of Eden:
Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods..” – Genesis 3:1-5
Satan lured Eve and then Adam into sin by the promise of “godhood.” By twisting God’s words, Satan convinced Eve that there was “secret knowledge” that she was not aware of, and through attainment of this knowledge, she would not die and become “as gods.” And this was a lie. Adam and Eve did die eventually, but more importantly, suffered immediate spiritual death, as their sin led them to be punished by God and banished from the Garden. They could no longer have direct fellowship with the Lord because of their sin. But God, in His love, did not abandon His first human children. As He stated his judgment upon them, The Lord also punished the serpent and in doing so made the greatest promise in the history of the world:
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. – Genesis 3:14-15
From the third chapter of the Bible, God promised that one day, a child would be born of a woman who would eventually destroy Satan. Known as the protoevangelium or “First Gospel” this was the first prophecy of a coming Redeemer and Savior, who would undo the damage done by Satan and defeat him. This Savior was Jesus Christ, who in His sacrifice on the cross, paid for the sins of humanity by living a perfect life and taking the wrath of God on Himself in the place of the sinful world. And in His resurrection He defeated death and earned the right to give eternal life to all those who put faith in His name and His work.
But thousands of years before Jesus was born into the world, Satan knew that a child would be coming who would destroy him and war with Satan’s “seed” his own followers and offspring (the Antichrist). So since that time, the Devil and his fallen angels set out to destroy the line of godly believers who would lead to the prophesied Messiah. He also sought to seduce mankind from worshiping God so that he could be worshiped instead. And the promise of esoteric or occult knowledge and godhood has persisted for thousands of years. Ancient civilizations, such as Babylon, Egypt and Greece had priesthoods who were devoted to the “gods” the fallen, rebel angels and preached a philosophy that made the King, Queen and royal family of their nations, “gods.”
Freemason Philosopher, Luciferian and occult expert, Manly P. Hall, wrote:
In all cities of the ancient world were temples for public worship and offering. In every community also were philosophers and mystics, deeply versed in Nature’s lore. These individuals were usually banded together, forming seclusive philosophic and religious schools. The more important of these groups were known as the Mysteries. Many of the great minds of antiquity were initiated into these secret fraternities by strange and mysterious rites, some of which were extremely cruel. Alexander Wilder defines the Mysteries as “Sacred dramas performed at stated periods. The most celebrated were those of Isis, Sabazius, Cybele, and Eleusis.” After being admitted, the initiates were instructed in the secret wisdom which had been preserved for ages. Plato, an initiate of one of these sacred orders, was severely criticized because in his writings he revealed to the public many of the secret philosophic principles of the Mysteries.
Every pagan nation had (and has) not only its state religion, but another into which the philosophic elect alone have gained entrance. Many of these ancient cults vanished from the earth without revealing their secrets, but a few have survived the test of ages and their mysterious symbols are still preserved. Much of the ritualism of Freemasonry is based on the trials to which candidates were subjected by the ancient hierophants before the keys of wisdom were entrusted to them. (“The Secret Teaching of All Ages”, p. 21-22)
The Super Bowl Halftime show was truly a “sacred drama”.” Also notice that when it comes to secret wisdom, those who are in the higher levels do not reveal their knowledge. The occult displays are to be understood fully only by those who have the proper level of “wisdom.” And Madonna’s performance fits the bill in its celebration of Isis. As Europe went through an occult explosion in the 17th and 18th centuries, this idea flourished in secret societies and covens. Satan’s brand of religion generally teaches that by occult knowledge a practitioner can contact angelic forces (“the gods”), access their power and knowledge and attain godhood eventually themselves. Whether it is Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism or Hermetic sciences, the general goal and seduction is the same.
Here is a depiction of George Washington in the Capital Building rotunda in Washington D.C.
It is called “the Apotheosis of George Washington.” Apotheosis means literally “to deify.” George Washington, a Freemason, was being elevated to godhood in the painting. The Apotheosis” is the work of Constantino Brumidi, an Italian artist who became famous for his paintings commissioned by the Vatican and Pope Pius IX. I Notice in the painting, Washington sits on a rainbow, which in the book of Genesis, was a symbol placed in the sky by God after the flood. Religious groups like the Mormons also believe in apotheosis as the reward for their followers.
As mentioned above, much of the rituals and rites in Freemasonry are based on ancient occult rituals. Invoking more Freemasonic symbolism, Madonna was also standing between two pillars on her throne.
The pillars in Freemasonry, called Jachin and Boaz, are taken from the pillars built at the entrance to King Solomon’s temple as described in the Bible in 1 Kings Chapter 7:
15For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about. 16And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits: 17And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter. 18And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter. 19And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits. 20And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter. 21And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.
The temple of Solomon was the designated place where the worship of God was centered. It was where the Ark of the Covenant was to be placed and thus the sole location where man could commune with God. The occult has taken this concept to use the pillars as the symbols of entering into the divine. Manly P. Hall writes: “ The World Virgin [Isis] is sometimes shown standing between two great pillars–the Jachin and Boaz of Freemasonry..” (ibid., p. 125). Also of note that is that Hall calls Isis “the Egyptian Madonna.”
The many gods and goddesses of antiquity are today seen as derivations of Each other. Isis, was also know as Ishtar, Ashteroth in Sumerian and Canaanite culture. The Encyclopedia Britanica states: “Astarte/Ashtoreth is the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites had burned incense and poured libations.”
In Roman Catholicism, (which had many symbols that result from a merger of paganism and Christianity), the “Virgin Mary” or Madonna, is just a reiteration of Ashteroth from pagan religions. The Enclyopedia Britanica confirms as much stating: ” “Through her identification with the Greek Aphrodite and the Roman Venus, Inanna-Ishtar, the queen of heaven, still survives in Roman Catholic iconography – e.g., as the Virgin Mary standing on the moon.” Modern Day occultists also identify Isis with the Virgin Mary:
“At first, the idea of equating Isis, an ancient Egyptian deity, with Mary, the the holy Virgin of Christianity and the mother of Jesus, may seem strange and to many Christians even blasphemous. However, many Pagans and Witches, particularly those who were raised as Catholics, now regard Mary as one of the numerous forms of the Goddess … Isis is often known as Isis Myrionymos which roughly translates as ‘Isis of the Thousand (or Myriad) names’. Her attributes encompass those of all other Goddesses and it is now common for encyclopedias such as the Encyclopedia Brittannica and the on-line Encyclopedia Mythica to describe Isis as being ‘identified with the Virgin Mary’ … From the Pagan point of view, Mary is one of the numerous names of the Goddess, as is Isis, and they are both manifestations of Her many forms. Both are in essence the same Goddess and embody the aspect of the divine Mother. In a way, to the Christians who destroyed Her temples and killed her devotees, Isis lives on as Mary.” ["The Virgin Mary - Isis of the Third Millennium?", Aurilus Creative Paganism]
Here are quotes from several Roman Catholic Popes declaring their actual worship of “the Madonna”:
“From the earliest ages of the Catholic Church a Christian people, whether in time of triumph or more especially in time of crisis, has addressed prayers of petition and hymns of praise and veneration to the Queen of Heaven. And never has that hope wavered which they placed in the Mother of the Divine King, Jesus Christ; nor has that faith ever failed by which we are taught that Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, reigns with a mother’s solicitude over the entire world, just as she is crowned in heavenly blessedness with the glory of a Queen. – Ad Caeli Reginam of Pope Pius XII, Encyclical on Proclaiming the Queenship of Mary, Promulgated October 11, 1954
Pius IX, Ubi Primum, 1849: “For God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that THROUGH HER are obtained every hope, every grace, and ALL SALVATION. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary.”
Paul VI, Christi Matri: “The Church … been accustomed to have recourse to that most ready intercessor, her Mother Mary … For as St. Irenaeus says, she ‘has become the cause of salvation for the whole human race.” (Source)
All of this is idolatry. It a sin and offense to God. The Lord says in the Bible: “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:5-6) While there are “gods” in the Bible, they are just created beings, while the true God is the Creator of all. Knowing that rebellious angels under Satan’s leadership would try to deceive the human race, God made the first of the ten commandments:
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4Thou 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. 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;” (Exodus 20:3-5).
We are to worship the Creator, and not the creation. But Satan repeatedly lures people away from God and towards himself or his minions. Why? Because Satan, in his pride and arrogance, wants to be God. In the book of Jeremiah. the prophet recounts the idolatrous false worship of some of the Israelites:
17 Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. . 20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. (Jeremiah 7)
Below is an ancient Egyptian statue of Isis with child (Horus)
And here is a 15h century sculpture of Madonna with child
The Bible acknowledges Ashteroth and the “Queen of Heaven” as false gods. As we detailed in our article on the movie “Immortals” (please see ‘The “Immortals” Movie: War of the Gods – Preparation for Antichrist’ ), the gods of antiquity are mentioned and referenced in the Bible. Biblical Christianity understands that these spiritual forces are real. However they are evil in nature and under the direction of Satan. Do not be deceived.
Vulgarity on Display
The performance featured two other female artists, rappers Nikki Minaj and MIA. Nikki Minaj, (who adopted her surname as a reference to a sexual act involving multiple partners) is well-known for her vulgarity, raunchy performances and numerous references to her bisexuality. One of the main aspects of occult ritual involves sex and vulgarity. It also goes against God’s description of female holiness and appropriate behavior. With respect to a moral, modest woman the Bible says: “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” (Proverbs 31:10). Furthermore, sexual activity is meant to be expressed and enjoyed in the context of marriage and not flaunted in public for any person to gaze at. Of course Satan wants the exact opposite behavior in order to undo what God has set as right. And thus in much of occult teaching rampant sexual behavior is often seen as a way of reaching “the gods” and greater ritual power (Dan Brown detailed one such means in the DaVinci code when he described the ritual of ‘Heiros Gamos‘). The three women all performed vulgar acts throughout the show. Madonna repeatedly spread her legs, gyrated on men and exposed her crotch for the world while Nikki Minaj did the same.
MIA opted to flip the crowd off.
For her performance of “Like a Prayer”, rapper Cee-Lo and a choir joined Madonna for what was supposedly the more somber, chaste portion of the performance. The choice of outfits were also very interesting. In the Church of Satan, located in San Francisco, CA there are set rules for what is called the “Black Mass” a ritual that mocks the Catholic Mass in act of blasphemy against God and The Lord Jesus Christ. The dress code is stated as: “Male Satanists generally wear full length black robes, with or without a hood. Young women generally wear sexually suggestive clothing; older women wear all black.” Whether intentional or not, Madonna, Cee Lo and the choir seemed to meet the dress code to a tee.
The All-Seeing Eye of Horus (or Lucifer) was also featured during the “Religious portion” again showing what the true nature of the performance was. Freemason and occultist Albert Pike wrote: “The Blazing Star (Pentagram) has been regarded as an emblem of Omniscience, or the All-Seeing Eye, which to the Egyptian Initiates was the emblem of Osiris, the Creator.” [Pike, "Morals and Dogma", p. 26-16]. Cutting Edge Ministries writes: “Therefore, the All-Seeing Eye is the symbol of the Omniscience of the Sun God, Lucifer, whom they worship. These All-Seeing Eyes represents the Omniscience of Horus, who is Lucifer in the Egyptian Satanic Mysteries.” (For more on the All-Seeing Eyes’s occult significance, see here). This would not be the first time Madonnas has used blasphemous imagery in her performances. During her “Sticky Sweet” tour, she appeared on stage on a cross, with a crown of thorns around her head in a direct mockery of Jesus Christ.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. 28And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 31And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. (Matthew 27)
Jesus endured, the punishment, torture, mockery and ultimately death, out of love for all people. His dying on the cross, after living life without sin on Earth, was the necessary sacrifice to satisfy God’s judgment against humanity and give people a chance to avoid going to hell for their sins. The cross is the central part of Biblical Christianity. The entire faith rests on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To have a lewd performer mock this event is not only offensive to Christians, it is a direct insult to God.
Madonna is also a fervent follower of Kabbalah, (also known as Qablah or Cabbalah) which according to Wikipedia is ” s a discipline and school of thought concerned with the esoteric aspect of Rabbinic Judaism. Kabbalah developed between the 6th and 13th centuries among Jews in Babylonia, Italy, Provence, and Spain. The word Kabbalah means “to receive” and refers to revelation from God received by Jews and passed to succeeding generations through oral tradition. The word was first used by mainstream Judaism but later came to refer to those who believed that only a select few were given the secret knowledge from God as to the “true” meaning of Scriptures. Like most esoteric organizations, those who are new initiates in Kabbalah are not given all of the true meanings and secrets behind the practices. That is reserved for the higher level practitioners.
Kabbalah resembles closely some of the beliefs held by the Greek Gnostics in that both groups held that only a select few were given deeper understanding or knowledge. Also, Kabbalah teaches that emanations from God did the work of creation rather than creation being directly from God. With each descending emanation, the emanation became further away from God. The final emanation took the personal form of angels. This would be like God created a lesser god, and that one then created a lesser god, and this kept happening until the end result were angels. This directly contradicts God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible. In the Bible, God teaches that He is both separate from all of His creation and yet is directly accessible by those who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
Kaballah has served as a foundational idea for such occult branches as theosophy, alchemy and other esoteric quests: through the acquistion of ancient, sacred knowledge, proper ritual and contact with angelic beings, one can attain god-like abilities. And the same names pop up as the insiration for the modern resurgence of Kabbalah. In her book, Isis Unveiled, Theosophist and Luciferian, Madame H.P. Blavatsky first chapter is on Kabbalah an unwritten or oral tradition.
The kabalist is a student of “secret science,” one who interprets the hidden meaning of the Scripture with the help of the symbolical kabalah, and explains the real ones by these means. The Tanaim were first the first kabalists among the Jews, they appeared in Jerusalem around the third century before the Christian era. The books of Ezekiel, Daniel, Henoch [a reference to the pseudopigraphical book of Enoch] and the Revelation of St. John, are purely kabalistical. This secret doctrine is identical with that of the Chaldeans, and includes at the same time much of the Persian wisdom or “magic.” (Isis Unveiled, p. xl).
Notice how often is the case, that when it comes to occult practices, there is always some reliance on the Bible of Christianity. However, what Blavatsky believed was that the Bible was a source of attaining magical powers when its “secret” wisdom was uncovered. Thus for many Kabalists, Jesus Christ, instead of being the prophesied Savior of Humanity, was just an occult “Master” who was able to use the secret knowledge and wisdom to give Himself supernatural powers. However, this of course is not what the Bible itself says. When Jesus was under arrest and brought before the High Priest Caiphas, He explained His ministry:
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said. And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? – John 18:19-22.
When instructing His Disciples on how to handle His teachings Jesus said: “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.”
Jesus was never in favor of secret or occult knowledge. There were no hidden teachings. Whatever He taught, He wanted spread to the entire world. Jesus’ mission was not to bring people special powers or make men into gods. It was to save the souls of humanity from sin.
One of the main proponents of modern Kabbalistic thought was Eliphas Levi, an occultist, alchemist and satanist. He was also a mentor to renowned satanist Aleister Crowley. The Dictionary of Satanism says of Levi:
“LEVI, ELIPHAS French magician and author of works on the occult. Eliphas Levi, whose real name was Alphonse Louis Constant, claimed to have summoned up the ghost of Apollonius of Tyana in London in 1854. Born in Paris about 1810, he is said to have been reincarnated as Aleister Crowley. Apollonius of Tyrana, who Eliphas Levi claimed to have summoned from the dead, was one of the earliest historical figures that pagans sought to establish as an anti-christ. He was born in A.D.16 and was a magician and adept occultist to whom many supernatural feats were attributed. In his book, The Phoenix, 33rd degree Mason Manly P. Hall entitles his chapter on Apollonius: “Apollonius, “The Antichrist” “
Like Blavatsky, Levi also practiced necromancy and divination to conjure spirits to receive his wisdom.” Levi also believed that the Bible should be used as a magic book and not in the manner it is used today (“The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic” 1886). And by using magic and ancient wisdom, humanity can achieve godhood. So we see again, at its root, the main founders of modern Kabbalah were anti-God and anti-Jesus Christ. And it is decidedly pro-Satan. This is the price that must be paid to receive any of the ancient knowledge of fallen angels – a reverence for Satan. Blavastky quotes Levi in her book, Anthroprogenesis, saying the following She says that ‘the “Old Dragon” or “Satan” … is that Angel who was proud enough to believe himself God..”
Thus Satan’s deception to spread his false religion continued. And from this passage above it is clear that Aleister Crowley, also a kabbalist, believed he actually was Eliphas Levi. The same running theme is that at the end of the day these occultists all revere Lucifer as the hero and inspiration of humanity. They distort Bible truths to continue the same “ye shall be as gods” deception from the Garden of Eden. And people continue to fall for it. Levi’s lasting legacy today is his drawing of the Baphomet, the goat-headed, androgynous idol used commonly in the occult.
Among other things, the Baphomet represents the fusion of opposites or the union of the divine and human – again, the main goal of the occult. Hence it having the organs of both sexes. This again is all about the return of the age of the gods and contacting the fallen rebellious angels. Even the Kabbalah center that Madonna belongs to says right on its front page that the knowledge basis of their belief is from “4,000 years ago” another reference to the pre-flood “age of the gods.” What is not mentioned is that none of this knowledge can save your soul. Whether it is Eliphas Levi, Blavatsky or Aleister Crowley, none of these people achieved their desired “godhood.” They never performed miraculous feats or displayed their powers, or evolved into “supermen.” They died just like everyone else has. And unfortunately, they most likely died as sinners with no redemption from God. This is Satan’s true plan – to bring as many people to hell as possible. Jesus Christ said of Satan comes to “steal, and to kill, and to destroy..” The Devil only uses humanity to achieve his own evil ends. But referring to Himself, Jesus Christ said: “I am come that they [humanity] might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
This is what is always missing in mystical, New Age Faiths. Sin and accountability to God for one’s actions. There is no ritual or good deed by humanity that can make up for all the sins one has committed. God, being a fair and honest judge of all people, has to punish sin. Otherwise, He would be a corrupt judge. But the entire point of the Bible goes back to the verse in Genesis 3:15- the seed of the woman would redeem humanity by His sacrifice! Jesus said: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. “ (John 3:17). This is what is prophesied all throughout the Bible leading up to the birth of Jesus.
Is the Bible a Supernatural Book?
In many of our articles we have shown how for centuries, those involved in the occult have used the Bible as a part of their belief system. Rather than shunning the Bible, they embrace it and try to manipulate it for esoteric power. But is there supernatural power in the Bible? Yes, indeed there is. The Bible states that its inspiration came from The Holy Spirit. And it proves its supernatural power by its prophecies. Here are some of the prophecies written about the Messiah hundreds of years before Jesus Christ ever walked the Earth.
Prophecy that The Messiah would be a Male born on Earth
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9 – written approximately 700 years before Christ)
Prophecy that The Messiah would be Born in Bethlehem
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2 – written approximately 680 years before Christ)
Fulfillment — Matthew 2: 1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.
Prophecy That the Messiah would Be a Descendant of King David (of the tribe of Judah)
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. (Jeremiah 23:5 written 586 years before the birth of Christ)
Fulfillment — There are two genealogies in the Gospels that trace Jesus’ lineage to David by blood through His mother Mary and by his legally adoptive father Joseph. They can be found in the books of Matthew and Luke.
Propehcy that the Messiah would not just bring salvation to the Jews but to the Gentile, or non-Jewish world as well.
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. (Isaiah 42)
Fulfillment — And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Prophecy That the Messiah would have a peaceful ministry
He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. (Isaiah 42:2-4)
Fulfillment — 14Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. 15But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all; 16And charged them that they should not make him known: 17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 18Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. 19He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. 20A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. 21And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. (Matthew 12)
Prophecy That The Messiah Would Bring a New Covenant (or way of reconciliation) Between Humanity and God
5Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. (Isaiah 42:5-7 )
Fulfillment — 26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew 26) — As He was about to be betrayed and set up to be executed, Jesus once again stated His mission to His disciples. That His death and sacrifice on the cross would allow people to be forgiven of their sins by faith in Him and belief in Him.
Prophecy That The Messiah In His First Coming Would Be Hated
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (Isaiah 53:3-4)
Fulfillment — Not only was Jesus hated, he was betrayed, framed for a crime he did not commit, wrongfully tried and killed. All the while being mocked, beaten and tortured on His way to His death.
Prophecy That the Messiah Would Be Wounded, Suffer and Die in Order Atone for the Sins of Humanity
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. (Isaiah 53:5-12)
This prophecy, written over 700 years before the birth of Jesus is one of the most powerful ones in the Bible as it clearly outlines the mission of Jesus in His First Coming. It was to live perfectly and suffer and die in order to properly satisfy the wrath of God and take the punishment humanity deserves for its sins. Verse 10 says that His soul was made an “offering for sin.” And being God in the flesh, and an eternal being, Jesus sacrifice was good for all who lived before or after His time on Earth).
Jesus’ Own Prophecy that He Would Die and Come Back to Life
And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again. (Matthew 20).
And there are many more prophecies that Jesus fulfilled in His life on Earth (for more on the hundreds of prophecies in the Bible that have already been fulfilled, see here).
This is the true knowledge of the Bible. God provided hundreds of prophecies, so that we could trust His Word. This is where faith comes from. The Bible teaches that people are not gods, but that humanity are god’s children, who have been lost because of sin. But Jesus provides the way for those children to come back home. God will never have an equal. Humans will never be gods. And Satan will be destroyed after Jesus’ Second Coming as prophesied in the book of Revelation. In the meantime, all God asks of us is not to perform rituals or do special actions to have eternal life. But to believe in Him and in Jesus Christ. This is how to go to Heaven and receive all of the riches and rewards for Christ which He will share with all who believe.
The Super Bowl halftime show was an unprecedented occult celebration and a sure sign that Satanic influence is growing so strong in the world that open displays of pagan ritual self-deification are now fun and cool. The years of “secret societies” keeping their information in the shadows has ended. These societies now want the public to know about these ideas in order to prepare the world for their coming hero, the seed of Satan. And it is all deception. Satan wants society to not consider their sin and thus have no need for God or a Savior. But this will only bring God’s wrath. Where Jesus Christ, speaks openly, requires no ritual. No actions and no sacrifice. It just takes faith and belief. Do not be deceived. Look to Jesus Christ and the true meaning of the Bible. Not the same old trick of the Devil that he has been running out for thousands of years. Every person has a soul that will live once the body has passed away. God wants His children to live with Him in eternity. But it always comes down to choice. Let’s pray the world will choose eternal life over the same lie from the Garden.
” That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” – Romans 10:8
