It’s all about choices, people! We have a dual message today folks. First, and foremost let’s address what the Holy Spirit brought to my attention. The battle of Daniel vs. Satan and the reality of what he was shown during this fight.
Then, we address the rest of the story. Inclusive in this message is the fact that demons are given permission in many ways to further the cause of Satan’s work. Their work consists of various agendas but the point here is the permission granted to them from different sources.
When Daniel is fasting for three weeks, patiently waiting for GOD to answer…what happens? Daniel receives an angelic visitor! This is such a strong presence that it almost causes Daniel to faint! In fact, the angel had to take hold of him and set him back on his feet.
What happens next?
The angel asks Daniel, “Do you know why I’ve come?”
Daniel 10: (KJV)
10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.
2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.
3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.
4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel;
5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:
6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.
8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength.
9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.
10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.
11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.
12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.
16 And, behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.
18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,
19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.
20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.
21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
The angel comes to fight with the Prince of Persia! Some think this is Jesus Christ, others believe it to be Gabriel or Michael. But this is not my point…GOD told me to point this out….
The angel tells Daniel that I will return to fight with the hostile prince of Persia; and when I have gone, behold, the hostile prince of Greece will come.”
What do you make of this? INSTANTLY, the Holy Spirit told me this…
This is the period of time on Earth when the Holy Spirit is withdrawn! This is the time when Satan will reign over the Earth as King. Now, I don’t mean that the Holy Spirit’s is NOT present! I simply mean that the demonic hosts will reign but we must understand that this time is here and now!
I take this chapter to mean also that these ‘UFOS’ that are here, have been given permission! Some may not agree with me on this point but their part of Satan’s entourage. I believe this to be in part the reason for Daniel’s syncope. A fainting spell. He collapses from the evidence, the reality of the truth.
2 Thessalonians 2: (KJV)
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2 Thessalonians 2: (KJV)
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness
There is only ONE who can restrain the mystery of lawlessness from the beginning-the Holy Spirit. Once HE removes the holding back-”then the lawless one will be revealed”.
The word “let” in verse 7 means to “withhold” as in verse 6 is the Greek word “katecho.” In verse 6 is “withholdeth”. To refrain, hinder or withhold is the basic meaning of this word. There is a power of some sort holding back the mystery of iniquity. In verse 7 Paul said that the mystery of iniquity was already working. As long as the restrainer continues to work in the world this false Christ cannot come to his position of power.
The mystery of iniquity was already in the world from the time man sinned and it has been growing, the only one who can restrain its activity through time is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit that is present on earth, through in individual believers, and the Church. He does not need people or the church body to restrain the mystery of iniquity, however, both are being used in restraining (hinders, prevents) the lawless one from revealing himself (we are salt and light in the world). As long as the restrainer continues to do his restraining work in the world and through the church the false Christ cannot come to his position of power. Once the Holy Spirit’s power to restrain is removed, the Antichrist is able to move unhindered to his appointed short time. It is at this certain time He, the Holy Spirit, will no longer prevent this mystery and “he” ( the mystery of Lawlessness, iniquity) will be revealed.V.8: “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth”
This “he” (2 Thessalonians 2:6) is the son of perdition. The mystery of iniquity will be revealed in the one known as the False Christ who will deceive the world.
2 Thess. 2:9: “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan”
The veil is thinning quickly now. The closer we come to the deciding point….the PNR…the Point of NO RETURN….the veil thins exponentially. These are many strange activities taking place on Earth. Many things people are witnessing that cannot be explained. The veil thins. The darkness is bleeding over.
We know for a fact that the battle between GOD’S Holy angels and Satan’s demonic host is constantly occurring for the souls of mankind. The rulers of this world are blinded by a false light…
This is a parallel of what was happening then and now. At the time this was taking place GOD knew these would come a parallel to those events in the end days and this is the reason for this parable.
While GOD has the power at all times to control the mind and heart of every person, HE allows FREE WILL to make the choice for that person’s destiny of their soul.
Seemingly, GOD allows the demonic actions to further Satan’s agenda but in the end the Master Plan of GOD is in control. Demons stand at the side of every ruler on Earth, and have done so throughout the history of mankind. But, we must remember that GOD places Holy angels by the side of HIS children too.
The occult has been at work in our society for hundreds, even thousands of years and this allows many things to take place. The rituals within the occult allow demons and fallen angels to enter this dimension. And even worse, to enter people!
You see, GOD commands Holy and unholy angels and demons to do HIS bidding. They all answer to HIM!
Giving permission for a demon, or fallen angel to enter your body/soul is devastating to GOD but HE allows it. The person chooses (free-will) for this to take place. Then, we have the situation of demons/fallen angels taking over the unfaithful for reasons of noncompliance. When you actively seek the occult, or choose to deny GOD into your life it opens many doors! It’s true. And these are dark avenues.
Here’s an example in the Bible:
2 Chronicles 18: 18-22 (KJV)
18 Again he said, Therefore hear the word of the Lord; I saw the Lord sitting upon his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.
19 And the Lord said, Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one spake saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner.
20 Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will entice him. And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith?
21 And he said, I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And the Lord said, Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also prevail: go out, and do even so.
22 Now therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the Lord hath spoken evil against thee.
The hosts of heaven are these:
The Holy angels (sheep) sit at the right hand of GOD and the unholy angels (goats) sit at the left! This reminds me of the many symbols that the occult use for the people. We are sheeple to them, and they are goats. And they even use these symbols to refer to themselves! In fact, a high-ranking demon is called Baphomet and he is revealed as a goat.
Please examine this depiction carefully. You will see 33rd Degree Mason, Eliphas Levi standing inside a specially created circle conjuring up the demon spirit Apollonius of Tyana [Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Mason, An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalist and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy" Being an Interpretation of the Secret Teachings Concealed Within the Rituals, Allegories and Mysteries of All Ages, H.S. Crocker Company, Inc., 1928, p. 101; also mentioned by David Carrico, Scottish Rite Journal, in article, "Manly P. Hall: The Honored Masonic Author, Evansville, Indiana, 1992, p. 17; listed as a book recommended by the Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company; reprinted by Dr. Burns, with permission]
With Eliphas Levi playing the role of Wizard — reading from the spell book in his hand — the demon is conjured into this dimension, appearing within a circle that has a triangle painted within. Notice the Baphomet on the extreme upper left and the human skull in the extreme right. Thus do Satanists place great emphasis on symbols drawn on the floor or the ground. They use such symbols during powerful witchcraft ceremonies.
To correlate the information here is key to understanding the depth!
This example given next is from a website which clearly sends mixed messages but pay close attention to the point at hand:
Jacques Vallee with Anton LaVey and Aime Michel
From an interview with Jacques Vallee by Jerome Clark (FATE magazine, 1978):
Vallee: I think that’s exactly what we have to do with UFOs. We have to do something that will cause them to react. And I don’t mean building landing strips in the desert and waiting out there to welcome the space brothers.
Clark: But what do you mean?
Vallee: I hesitate to be too specific. I’m speaking, as I’m sure you understand, of the attempted manipulation of UFO manifestations.
I know a little something about that subject. And I’m about to go out on a very long, creaky limb by telling this little story. In the past decade or so, the bizarre nexus of UFOs and the paranormal has emerged from the dustbin of Ufology, thanks to pioneers like Vallee, John Keel, and a rapidly growing group of researchers (see references at the end of this article). In some ways, the UFO/Occult nexus has become a cottage industry, and has occasionally broken through into the mainstream. But when my particular incident occurred, Ufology was primarily entrenched in the “nuts-and-bolts spaceships” extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) camp.
But on with my particular piece of this puzzle.
In early September of 1990, I spend a few days at Ocean City, Maryland, a resort town on the Atlantic. I went to the beach with a few friends, and we passed the time making sand sculptures. Since I was reading a lot about UFOs at the time (it was the 90s, after all), I sculpted the head of a prototypical “gray” alien in the sand, with his arm raised above his head as if waving hello.
A couple of weeks later, I returned to Ocean City for the weekend. One evening, I had a very vivid dream about a television panel discussing UFOs. One expert was a Phil Klass styled skeptic/debunker, another was a Jacques Vallee-type, the third was a Stanton Friedman nuts-and-bolts ETH proponent, and the final panel member was a raving paranoid “the lizards in their underground bases are eating our children!” conspiratologist. The panelists bantered back and forth until the paranoid guy started ranting: “They’re cooperating with the government! They’re stealing our children and the government knows it! The Men in Black are demons!” The other panelists chuckled and rolled their eyes.
I awoke from the dream, disturbed. I seldom had dreams related to UFOs, and this one was particularly realistic. I found that my thoughts kept returning to the dream throughout the day.
That evening, at approximately 7:30pm, I decided to take a walk on the beach with my girlfriend. It was a very clear, starry night, and we were the only two on the beach. My girlfriend walked along the surf, while I lingered away from the water. I looked down in the sand and saw what looked like a humanoid face sculpted in the sand, though part of it had been obliterated by footprints.
I remembered the alien head I had sculpted in the sand weeks before, miles from the spot on which I was standing. Just another synchronicity, I thought to myself.
I looked up into the starry night, thinking about my dream and the face in the sand. I said, mentally, If you’re out there, now is the perfect time to show yourself. I guess part of me secretly wished something would appear, but I certainly did not expect anything to happen.
I walked closer to the water and joined my girlfriend.
A few minutes later, she pointed to the sky. “What are those?” she asked.
Two orange-red blobs of light were bobbing up and down next to each other far above us. When I looked at them, they shot off across the sky (over the ocean), flying erratically — almost playfully, changing direction frequently. At one point, they merged, flying as one unit, then split apart again. We watched them, stunned, until they vanished on the horizon amidst the light pollution from Ocean City’s boardwalk.
“Oh, my God,” I said, over and over, as we followed them. I couldn’t say anything else but “Oh, my God.” I was simultaneously awed and frightened. When the lights disappeared, we both returned to the car and drove home, elated but also unnerved by what we had seen. I can only think of a couple of theories to explain what happened.
One is that I was part of a lucky train of coincidences, a chain of synchronicity — sculpting a face of an alien in the sand, dreaming about the UFO panel, stumbling upon a similar face in the sand weeks later, asking for an appearance, and getting much more than I could have imagined.
The other possibility is much more intriguing, but raises all sorts of troubling questions. It suggests that UFOs are a multidimensional phenomena (bending time and space), that they interact with human consciousness on an intimate level, and that they can potentially be summoned. Far more frightening is the possibility that whatever it is, it observed, drew upon, or manipulated my consciousness, my dreams, and my perceptions leading up to the sighting.
If it wasn’t for my girlfriend sighting the objects first, I would concede the possibility that it was a hallucination. She knew nothing of my silent request to show me something, and pointed out the objects before I saw them.
One of the foremost researchers into the fringes of Ufology is my friend who goes by the name of Blue Resonant Human, or Brother Blue. Although he dropped out of sight in the late 90s, his prodigious postings to USENET made him a Net celebrity, and his unconventional (and funny) writings made him the object of scorn of hardnosed skeptic and harebrained new ager alike.
Here he quotes Jacques Vallee:
There are certainly occult groups that claim they can invoke or evoke beings that do some of the things that UFO entities do. I’ve looked. I’ve contacted a number of those groups…
Robert Anton Wilson describes meeting Vallee in his excellent Cosmic Trigger:
“Where do you think they come from?” I asked.
Doctor Vallee gave the Gallic form of the classic scientific Not-Speculating-Beyond-The-Data head-shake. “I can theorize, and theorize, endlessly,” he said, “but is it not better to just study the data more deeply and look for clues?”
“You must have some personal hunch,” I insisted.
He gave in gracefully. “They relate to space-time in ways for which we have, at present, no concepts,” he said. “They cannot explain to us because we are not ready to understand.”
I asked Grady McMurty if Aleister Crowley had ever said anything to him implying the extraterrestrial theory which Kenneth Grant, Outer Head of another Ordo Templi Orientis, implies in his accounts of Crowley’s contacts with Higher Intelligences.
“Some of the things Aleister said to me,” Grady replied carefully, “could be interpreted as hints pointing that way.” He went on to quote Crowley’s aphorisms about various of the standard entities contacted by Magick. The Abramelin spirits, for instance, need to be watched carefully. “They bite,” Aleister explained in his best deadpan am-I-kidding-or-not? style. The Enochian “angels,” on the other hand, don’t always have to be summoned. “When you’re ready, they come for you,” Aleister said flatly.
Crowley also figures in one of the seminal (ahem) incidents in this murky, bizarre field. The most discussed episode is Crowley’s alleged contact with an entity known as LAM (illustration above) as part of his “Amalantrah Working” — an occult process designed to facilitate “the establishment of contact with non-human intelligences.”
Instead of rehashing this story here, I will point the reader to this article.
Googling Crowely and LAM will yield many variations of what is essentially the same account.
The concept of UFOs as egregores is also worthy of exploration.
The following definition is excerpted from Gaetan Delaforgem’s article in Gnosis:
An egregore is a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose. Whenever people gather together to do something and egregore is formed, but unless an attempt is made to maintain it deliberately it will dissipate rather quickly. However if the people wish to maintain it and know the techniques of how to do so, the egregore will continue to grow in strength and can last for centuries.
An egregore has the characteristic of having an effectiveness greater than the mere sum of its individual members. It continuously interacts with its members, influencing them and being influenced by them. The interaction works positively by stimulating and assisting its members but only as long as they behave and act in line with its original aim. It will stimulate both individually and collectively all those faculties in the group which will permit the realization of the objectives of its original program. If this process is continued a long time the egregore will take on a kind of life of its own, and can become so strong that even if all its members should die, it would continue to exist on the inner dimensions and can be contacted even centuries later by a group of people prepared to live the lives of the original founders, particularly if they are willing to provide the initial input of energy to get it going again.
I offer this information as food for thought, not because I can assert that it is truth, or even partially true. But I cannot deny my own experience, which has convinced me that, at least in part, the UFO phenomenon interacts with humans on a psychic (i.e. non-physical) level — the level of dreams, synchronicity, and consciousness.
In countries around the world, that do not have the basic fundamental, Bible-believing doctrines, demons regularly manifest. Now, also keep in mind that because America is drawing away from GOD this is happening here too! These demons are regularly manifesting into our dimension. With the increase of Satanic rituals within the United States we are witnessing an exponential increase here as well.
How can we expect our children to respect authority when adults are involved in ancient mystery religions:
“How can we parents expect our children to respect authority, honor the Word of God and its teachings when we refuse to obey it? Children have acute noses for hypocrisy, and if they know their Bibles at all, they will easily see that Dad should not be shuffling off to the Lodge meeting every Monday night. His actions will speak louder than his words.
Additionally, although most kids will probably not know very much about the Masonry their father and/or mother is involved in, the fact that their parents are members of “the world’s largest coven” brings the sin of witchcraft into the home. The Bible teaches us that:
…rebellion is as he sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. 1 Samuel 15:23”
(Masonry: Beyond the Light, by William Schnoebelen, 1991, p. 233)
Mr. Schnoebelen is making a startling revelation about the ability of demons to come into the home of someone who is associated with mystery religions. He also makes a good point about how this can affect the whole family.
Hence, the family whose parents are part of Freemasonry are actively bringing demonic beings into their homes to afflict their children. Doorways are opened, and demons flow in.
They have essentially given PERMISSION for this to take place.
The deception taking place is a grand illusion of universal proportions. It involves many levels of paranormal activity and dimensions. These demons and fallen angels are being given permission to reside in this world. Are you aware of your actions and how they can bleed into other lives? Do you put your family in danger? Save yourself and them by confessing your sins and asking Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD to come into your life. Give GOD permission to reign in your live, do it today!
