False Signs and Wonders PT1
Oh sure, this is probably one of the most discussed out of all current prophetic subjects but my article is one which travels a little left field. I’m sure you’re use to that!
When you think of this title, you directly assume it’s the weather, or signs in the skies. Well, we know that the elite are very good at convincing mankind that most of the things happening around us are part of The Bible and its predictions…I mean all one need do is research the Chem-Trials, or even the animal deaths which have been happening an unprecedented scale all over the world! But that’s not the road I want to travel. This has surely been covered enough.
No! The avenue I want to highlight is magic.
Magic is something children are fascinated over, especially with the elite’s agenda to confuse them into believing that Harry Potter is a good thing,…and this is something that parents should be concerned about but the magic I speak of is…so-called “parlor tricks”.
Otherwise known as ‘platform magic’, ‘cabaret magic’…or one you might be more familiar with…”STAGE MAGIC”.
The names of the performers are nothing short of a household name! Names that are automatically known worldwide.
For instance, Harry Houdini, or David Copperfield….right?
Other names fall into place in this next link…

But, let’s take a stroll…shall we?
Dante, or Houdin…
Harry August Jansen, better known as Dante the Magician, was so influential that his death in 1955 has come to end what historians call the “Golden Age of Magic.”
The Parlor of Prestidigitation
In combination with the apocalyptic events happening around the world, some suggest that magic has a large hand in, we begin to see connections once we become aware.
2700 B.C. – The reputed first known performance of a conjuring effect (balls) by the magician Dedi (or Djedi) in ancient Egypt. Supposedly this is a fictional story but the next reported performance.
1700 B.C. – The Westcar Papyrus (located in Berlin) records the earliest known performance of conjuring…as a form of enter-tainment. (Was this the beginning of major spikes in possessions?)
40 A.D. – Simon Magus, aka Simon the Sorcerer and Simon of Gitta. Known as the founder of modern gnosticism. It is rumored he plunged to his death while performing his own levitation.
50-300 A.D. – Acetabularii – who’s performance was of the same type. It was in Rome.
That’s not surprising to me! The esoteric knowledge is given from the Greeks, to Egypt, and then to Rome (known as Roma). Of course, this knowledge is known in modern terms is the occult.
1000-1500 A.D. – The Middle Ages where much magic was still associated with the occult and witchcraft. The growing trading nature of society allowed some street or circus performers.
1905 A.D. – July – The Magic Circle was formed in London. It’s first President was David Devant. This is a prestigious organization for magicians and has strict rules against exposure.
1963 A.D. – The Magic Castle is formed by Milt Larsen in Hollywood USA by converting a 1908 Victorian mansion to a center of magical excellence.
TEACHING AN NEW CHURCH OLD TRICKS
I would venture to say that there is a very powerful and intelligent principality over the early church, and like a destroying hurricane, sweeping everything in its path…so to was magic in the church. Much like today, it was used to trick people into giving money to the church…even up to their very last penny. Again, sounds like the modern church!
Incorporating magic with religion is nothing new, I guess. But, I was truly surprised at how deeply it exists.
Gospel Magic? Really? Yes, there’s actually a term with a definition of such practices.
Gospel magic is the use of otherwise standard stage magic tricks and illusions to promote Christian messages. Gospel Magic does not claim to invoke spirits or paranormal powers. Gospel Magic is intended to present the Christian good news through “visual parables” the trick or illusion in Gospel Magic is used to present theological points in an entertaining way with the intention that people will remember. Gospel Magic is generally presented as stage magic or platform magic, but it can be adapted to close-up magic or micromagic situations. The Jewish equivalent of Gospel Magic is known as Torah Magic.
The first modern use of Gospel Magic is in the ministry of the Italian Catholic priest Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco (Don Bosco, 1815-1888). His autobiography lists many dozens of magic tricks used for the purpose of offering religious instruction to children and youth. Don Bosco has been seen as the Patron Saint of Catholic Magicians and, specifically, Catholic Gospel Magicians.
Spiritualism actually falls hand-in-hand with this article. This is the belief that spirits of the dead have both the ability and inclination to communicate with the living. The afterlife, or “spirit world”, is seen by spiritualists, not as a static place, but as one in which spirits continue to evolve. These two beliefs: that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits are more advanced than humans, leads spiritualists to a third belief, that spirits are capable of providing useful knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about the nature of GOD. Some spiritualists will speak of a concept they refer to as a “spirit-guides”–specific spirits, often contacted, who are relied upon for spiritual guidance.
The Bible is very specific about this subject…actually there are many verses which give warning of the consequences of such activity. But it never speaks of ‘hauntings’, per say. This is because when we die…we leave this dimension and this is why we’re told to test the spirits! Namely, the verse in 1 John 4:
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
According to those who believe in ghosts, there are three different kinds of hauntings:
(1) residual hauntings (likened to video playbacks with no actual interaction with any spirits).
(2) Hauntings by human spirits, whose natures are a combination of good and bad (but not evil). Such spirits may simply want to get a person’s attention; others may be pranksters, but, in either case, they do not truly harm people.
(3) Interaction with non-human spirits or demons. These entities can masquerade as human spirits, but they are harmful and dangerous.
So, they are of the belief that human spirits can remain here in this dimension and they just want attention. WRONG.
They believe are pranksters, and do no harm. WRONG.
The Bible warns us to test the spirits. Why? Not because they may be your dead mother! But, because we have two sets…GOD’S and Satan’s spirits.
We’re meant to test them because GOD does send HIS angels but this is happening less and less. Why? Because The Holy Spirit and GOD’S forces are being pulled back the closer we get to the end. The veil is thinning and because of this, the dark side bleeds through more and more. This is meant to be. It’s not because Satan is in control but quite the opposite. GOD is in control but everything must happen according to HIS Master Plan.
So, if you take a look at the world in the past 20 years or so, you will notice that the paranormal is becoming the normal.
Spiritualism has played a huge part in this increase.
Now that we’ve established the fact that GOD tells us NOT to communicate with the DEAD…let’s continue.
Magic has a long history of being connected with the devil and the dark arts. The art of Phantasmagoria is a form of theater in which a modified lantern projected frightening images onto a wall…this reminds me of how the television (magic lantern?) was devised. The devil is in the details, right?
Some say that television was brought to us by Satan, and this is certainly food for thought:
Is Your TV Spying On You
All the world’s a stage, right? For who? Satan!
