This entry concludes this series by examining all the incredible reasons why I firmly believe that this predicted event is the Great Deception itself. Furthermore, whether it happens on October 14th or not, I believe that it's quite clear that this is EXACTLY the type of thing Satan will most likely use to deceive mankind before ushering in the Tribulation.
I've mentioned in the previous parts of this series how there are SEVERAL reasons to support my analysis as to why I think this is Satan's attempt at the Great Deception. In conclusion, I simply want to document all the things that I have read, seen, and heard that are giving me serious concern that our time is much shorter than even those of us who recognize the signs even think.
SATAN AS A TEMPLATE:
The key to this entire study is to take what the Bible tells us about Satan (including his plans for us in the last days) and compare that to what is being given to us by this Galactic Federation of Light. Let's begin there with the name of this planet-and-human-race-saving organization.
What do we know about Satan that should give us pause for concern here? Well, we know from Part 2 that he is known as "Lucifer" a Latin word that means "Light Bearer" and isn't it interesting then that Revelation also mentions the name Appolyon? While Apollo has a great number of appellations in Greek myth, only a few occur in Latin literature, chief among them Phoebus ("shining one"), which was very commonly used by both the Greeks and Romans in Apollo's role as the "God of Light."
Some might also be reminded of Isaiah 14:12, where the Hebrew wording helel ben shachar which meant "shining one, son of the morning" or Revelation 9:11 that reads, "And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon."
Furthermore, this "angel of the bottomless pit" will use a "key" to open the Abyss and release creatures that will torment the planet and it's people who do not have "the seal of God" on them. The full passage reads, "The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man. During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon" (Revelation 9:1-11).
We find one of these channeled Light Beings saying, "We come to bring the key. To release those in chains if they allow us." This is remarkable and I implore you to contrast this with what Tom Horn's studies recently revealed about biblical Giants.
Returning to the "light" theme for a moment, we also find that 2 Corinthians 11:14 plainly tells us, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light" so isn't that remarkable?
The very next verse tells us, "It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness" and isn't that fitting since EVERY single message from this group is telling us "have no fear," "we come in peace," and "we are only here to give you hope, to lift you up, to help you..." as a mission statement?
I should also mention that one psychic medium channeled a message from "The Nine" who are supposedly 9 white winged beings. Interesting because Isaiah 30:6 tells of a "fiery flying serpent" or "winged serpent" too.
We also know from prophecy that Satan in all his jealous pride will attempt to counterfeit Christ in every way imaginable as a way of mimicking Him. That being said, isn't it also fascinating how many of the seemingly mundane details involved with this story have a Christian parallel? Consider the following...
1. A ship will appear in the sky announcing their existence
- Jesus Christ will appear in the sky at His Second Coming!
2. 2,000-mile long ship will appear in the skies
- Roughly 2,000 years since birth of Jesus Christ!
3. The ship will remain in the sky for at least 3 days
- Jesus was resurrected after 3 days!
4. The announcement of this "First Contact" event was predicted by psychic mediums
- The first and second coming of Jesus Christ was predicted by the prophets!
5. The command by this Federation to "Never take your eyes off the skies"
- Jesus in Luke 21:27-28 commands us to keep looking up for His expected return!
6. The instruction by this Federation to "Don't wait for us to show up...BELIEVE in us!"
- Mimics what Jesus said to us about placing our faith in Him and things unseen!
Clearly, speaking to other spirit beings from another time, place, dimension is forbidden by God as is associating yourself with these types of people who practice divination.
For proof, we need only to read Deuteronomy 18:9 and 1 Samuel 28. Then, we are instructed to "test" these individuals according to 1 John 4:1 because a prophet from God will be 100% right 100% of the time and they will deal in absolutes not vague "this-might-or-might-not-happen" type statements. Most importantly, they will attest that Jesus is who He said He was.
This entire "message to mankind" as well as the instructions given to humanity were found by those who claim the ability to "channel" various "Light Beings" from various space races. In many cases, these same Light Beings even have their own unique names. What I find telling in all of this is how some of these messages are blatantly Christian in context and content. In other words, there's just enough truth in what is said to cause someone to stop for a minute to consider if what is being said might actually be true.
The devil knows the Bible better than we do and so why wouldn't he use it to his advantage especially when it comes to deceiving mankind? It makes sense to me that this is precisely the type of tactic that he would use on us.
Again, it's interesting that he would use his own "prophets" to mimic what God did through the prophets of the Bible in announcing the coming of Jesus Christ.
Some of the mediums have been adamant that the "Light Ships" that are to appear are just that - ships made entirely of brilliant light and pure energy, and that they are in a sense "alive" and a living being as well.
We've already established Satan's connection to all things that have to do with "light," but it's also interesting to note that 2 Thessalonians 2:9 says, "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders."
Couple that passage with one recent message from one of these Light Beings that reads, "We are coming in light ships that look like diamonds. This alone will dazzle you and hold you in speculative captivity long enough for you to lose control of your rational linear thinking. It is at this moment that you will begin to feel with your mind the immense power of the dazzling diamond ship; it’s ability to transmit loving light unto each of you. In this, you receive the rapture that the brethren Jesus and so many others speak of and represent, today and yesterday. And this will usher in the final end of domination on your planet. We are coming with glad tidings and powerful undeniable comforting energy for each of you. Don’t you welcome this in your current turbulent times of falling systems?"
Two things I want to point out that I think we should pay close attention to. Again, we find the obvious Christian references to Jesus and the Rapture (to deceive other Christians?), which begs the question of whether or not we should even look at these ships if they should manifest and appear in our skies because they could be counting on that. The other item I want to point out is the claim that it will be diamond-shaped. Why could that be significant?
The Bible tells us in Ezekiel 28:13 that when it comes to Satan in the Garden of Eden "You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared."
Now, I realize the word "diamond" doesn't show up in that verse, but I still find it interesting that they are using our concept of a diamond - the most precious and beautiful type of stone on our planet - to describe the style of these Light Ships. To me, that correlates nicely with what we are told about Satan.
MORE CLUES, MORE THEORIES:
Fall of Satan
Despite all the aforementioned evidence that indicates that we could very well be on the cusp of experiencing the Great Deception, there still remains a few additional points to consider that lead us to the same conclusion.
For instance, there has always been debate surrounding the fall of Satan. Did you know that there are in fact four (4) falls of Satan? Take Isaiah 14:12-15 for example.
Here, the prophet identifies the king of Babylon as Lucifer, son of the morning. Some debate if Lucifer is a name or a title; the word means morning star or day star, referring to a brightly shining object in the heavens. Whether it is a title or a name makes little difference; this once brightly shining king of Babylon is now fallen from heaven.
The prophetic habit of speaking to both a near and a distant fulfillment, the prophet will sometimes speak more to the near or more to the distant. Here is a good example of Isaiah speaking more to the distant, ultimate fulfillment. It is true that the king of literal Babylon shined brightly among the men of his day, and fell as hard and as completely as if a man were to fall from heaven. But there was a far more brightly shining being who inhabited heaven, and fell even more dramatically - the king of spiritual Babylon, Satan.
Now, when we speak of the four falls of Satan we mean:
i. Satan fell from glorified to profane (Ezekiel 28:14-16). This is what Jesus spoke of in Luke 10:18 when He says He saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. This is the only fall of Satan that has already happened.
ii. Satan will fall from having access to heaven (Job 1:12, 1 Kings 22:21, Zechariah 3:1) to restriction on the earth (Revelation 12:9). This is yet to happen and we can't be sure of the exact timing. Hmmm...
iii. Satan will fall from his place on the earth to bondage in the bottomless pit for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1-3). This too is yet to happen, but according to the prophetic timeline we know that it does not occur until the end of the Tribulation.
iv. Finally, as mentioned here in Isaiah 14:12, Satan will fall from the bottomless pit to the lake of fire, which we commonly know as hell (Revelation 20:10). Another future fall of Satan, this is the final one and it will happen at the very end of history as we know it according to the Bible.
For our purposes here, let's examine the second fall on this list especially since these Light Beings have stated that, "Accept us in your TRUTH as we draw closer to your earthly vibration, and remember of the (small) tremor that we spoke of. We speak of this so that there shall be no cause for alarm. It is to be a shuddering within the core of your earth, but it shall cause no damage. It simply can not be avoided. It is of no harm. It shall take place a few days before the time of our appearance."
What is completely incredible about this claim and this entire event that's predicted is that it has a direct relationship to the fall of Satan that we're questioning here as described to us in Revelation 12:9!
Of particular interest is the manner in which Revelation 12 begins with the first verse saying, "And a great sign was seen in heaven."
Next, we have mention of the “stars” that Satan sweeps away with his tail and sends to earth, which may refer to the many angels he leads in his rebellion against God (Revelation 12:3-4). Then, beginning in Revelation 12:6 the vision now skips to the period of the Great Tribulation - the focus of this section of Revelation. This verse describes God's preservation of believing Israel during the Great Tribulation - on which John elaborates in 12:13-17.
But before this, we get another picture of the Great Tribulation from a different perspective as revelation 12:7-12 describes Satan's expulsion from heaven during the Great Tribulation! The precise future fall of Satan that we are examining in this case study!
Revelation 12:7-9,12 gives an account of this war between Michael and Satan (and their angels) and, more importantly, it describes the inauguration of the Great Tribulation!
The reference to Michael is an allusion to Daniel 12:1, which calls this period a time of unique distress. Like Hitler at the end of WWII, Satan knows that his demise is imminent, so he takes out his fury on the people of earth - especially those who follow Jesus.
Revelation 12:10-11 mentions a "shout" or "loud voice" by God proclaiming what has just happened and why Satan and his cohorts have been thrown from heaven to earth. Could this "shout" be the "small tremor" that "can not be avoided" that the Light Beings spoke of? It very well could be especially if these so-called Light Beings are minions of Satan who already know what must happen and in what manner.
One other clue that needs to be mentioned is regarding the Old Covenant's Day of Atonement. The Day of Atonement - Yom Kippur - is the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. It is the day when all Israel mourns for their sins.
Yom Kippur 2008 starts at sundown on Wednesday October 8th (Kol Nidre), and lasts all day Thursday, October 9, 2008 until sundown. This day marks the culmination of the Days of Awe, the period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The Day of Atonement is described by Maimonides as "the universal time of repentance" (z'man teshuva lakol). It is spent praying and fasting.
The goat for Azazel (erroneously called "scapegoat") and what actually was done to it on the Day of Atonement, is a part of that matter. Many bible-translations make it seem that the goat for Azazel was "let go into a wilderness", but in reality it was "let go" from a high cliff - it was thrust down, to its death. It is quite clear that the goat for Azazel (also spelled Asasel) was in one way or another symbolic of Satan and other wicked spirits, and their fate.
Fascinating, given the fact that we've already surmised how this could be the prophesied future event of one of Satan's four falls with his rebellious angels! Wait, there's more!
Many even understand that this day points to the coming destruction of Satan, and the liberation of this world. The Day of Atonement is about liberty. It is about setting men free. In the spiritual and biblical sense, setting men free from their sins. In the Galactic Federation of Light sense, setting me free from the restrictive powers of this world.
When Jesus was killed and paid the death penalty in the place of others, and was then raised by the Father, that made true liberty possible, for mankind. But the time when that liberty actually becomes a reality for all humans and for this planet, is still in the future. That liberty will only come about when Satan and other wicked ones have been removed. Only then will mankind be set at liberty. Only then will the true "Good Message" (the Gospel) become a reality. Also, only then will this blinded world be able to see things as they really are.
How interesting then that we have a group of Light Beings who want to help to "set us free" and "enlighten us so that we can see things as they really are" especially when we already know that Satan wants to be a counterfeit Jesus Christ and mimic everything He has done or will do!
I sincerely hope that I have clearly demonstrated why I believe that this prediction of an epic event on October 14, 2008 has some merit. At the very least, perhaps I've succeeded in showing you how Satan might attempt to carry out the Great Deception even if this all turns out to be an elaborate hoax.
I am still quite amazed by the way in which everything has come together in this study and how it all seems to fit together and complete the prophetic puzzle surrounding these events.
By the way, as if all of this weren't enough to convince you that something spiritual and beyond us is going on here I should also mention that I came up with the title for this piece nearly 2 hours prior to me coming across 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 that reads, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve."
That's relevant only because one running joke with me is that despite my strong faith I've never been one who is able to memorize Scripture chapter and verse, and yet the very words used in my title for this series - the EXACT verbiage found in the pages of my Bible - just came to me the other day!
Taking a closer look, isn't it equally fascinating that we have the two most important numbers (from the Galactic Federation of Light's perspective) found in this very same passage that speaks of Satan as masquerading as an angel of light!?!
2 Corinthians 11:14 is the Scripture - they say they will come through the gate at 11:11pm PST after we chant 11 times, and arrive to meet us on the 14th!
Boy, these sure are exciting times! Keep looking up!
