Chasing Rabbits

In the previous blog post I made reference to the January 2015 cover of The Economist magazine. This magazine, which is an organ of the Rothschild’s and their associates, is used to propagandize the masses. The January cover is pregnant with symbolism and dismal forebodings regarding what could occur in 2015. A number of websites which analyze the esoteric messages the global elite flood the world with, have given attention to deciphering what is being communicated through the images and words contained on the cover of this edition of this New World Order periodical. Among them are the Vigilant Citizen, Before Its News, Zero Hedge, and Above Top Secret websites. No doubt a great many people will spend time exploring the myriad of potential harbingers and omens contained in this magazine cover’s artwork.

The Economist, January 2015 Cover

In past blogs on this website, I too have given attention to unveiling the cryptic messages of the global elite. I have commented on various movies, on the Olympic ceremonies and associated symbols, and on a myriad of manufactured news events. Over the years I have observed a growing number of individuals and websites that devote great amounts of time and resources to conspiracies, with more and more attention given to trying to predict the next thing the global elite, the servants of Satan, will do as they move ever closer to establishing a one world government under the rule of their spiritual master.

Not only are the number of sites which focus on this subject increasing, but those who read these sites are greatly increasing in number. With this in mind, I believe it is expedient to post a word of caution about the practice of trying to divine the future by studying the material put out by those who are under the guidance of the great deceiver. A thought I have been increasingly impressed with in my own studies is that Satan is a master of deception and disinformation. Consequently, those who look to movies, magazines, books, music videos, or other forms of mass media to know what Satan and his servants will do next are on perilous ground if they are not cognizant of the subtlety and cunning of the dragon, who is the serpent of old. It is inadvisable to put too much attention on what Satan and his human minions are doing and saying, for they are invariably practicing deception even when they are seemingly forecasting their own plans.

As I look at the cover of The Economist magazine, one image I am struck with is that of Alice. Notice that she is the ONLY character whose back is to the reader. In this stance she represents the readership of the magazine. In other words, you and I are being equated to Alice from the book Alice in Wonderland. There is great symbolism here, for in this fictional tale Alice fell down a rabbit hole and found herself in an alternate reality that was disassociated from the real world. So too, mankind is being fed a steady stream of propaganda from a wide array of media sources with the result that they are being conditioned to view the world as Satan wants them to perceive it, rather than how it really is. Most people are living in a fantasy land. They believe lies, and reject truth, for they have been conditioned to do so from the time they entered this world.

I John 5:19
The whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

Revelation 12:9
The great dragon…, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world…

Like Alice in Wonderland, Satan would like to entice us to chase rabbits down a hole which leads to an alternate reality. If he cannot deceive us, he might be just as satisfied to distract us by keeping us so preoccupied with the multitude of cryptic messages, which may or may not be forecasting future events, that we lose sight of what is truly important.

Without a doubt, the Christian’s main focus should be upon what God is saying, rather than what Satan is saying. The maxim has often been cited which states that law enforcement agents are taught to spot counterfeit money by studying the real thing, not by studying that which is false. So too, we must know the truth if we are to recognize lies. A disciple of Christ should spend much time in prayer, in the Scriptures, and meditating upon what Yahweh is speaking. Too much attention to what Satan and his servants are saying, and too little attention to God’s voice, will result in confusion.

In 2013 a movie came out that was titled Now You See Me. In what little commentary I have read on the movie, I have not found anyone to recognize what I believe to be one of the most obvious messages contained in it.

The tag line on the movie poster is “The closer you look, the less you’ll see.” When I heard this, I immediately took it as a taunt by Satan and his disciples. They want humanity to try to figure them out, to guess what they are up to, and to try to predict what they will do next. This is why a Rothschild owned magazine would place on its cover so many hints regarding what may occur in the upcoming year. This invitation to peer hard into the works of deception before us, and the taunt that it will only lead to confusion, is repeated throughout the movie Now You See Me.

Now You See Me – Come in Closer

The central plot of this movie revolves around a man whose father died tragically when the son was only 12 years old. The boy spent decades patiently planning and setting up his revenge upon those whom he deemed responsible for his father’s death and for cheating the family out of an insurance settlement. The boy’s father was a master magician, and the son has followed in his footsteps. He is practiced at deception. He is highly intelligent, and perhaps most remarkable, he is extremely patient in planning the moment of his revenge. I do not think it is coincidental that these are characteristics shared by Satan. Indeed, the magician who died bears a name that is an allusion to Satan. His name is Lionel Shrike.

The name Lionel is comprised of two parts. El is the Hebrew word for “God.” Who is the God depicted as a lion? The Bible actually provides two answers to this question. The first to come to most people’s mind is Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah. He is the Son of God, while also being “the lion of the tribe of Judah.” However, Satan is also called “the god of this world,” and he is described by Peter as “a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

Shrike is a name of a bird, but it is not just any bird. The Shrike is referred to as the “butcher bird.”

Their beaks are hooked, like that of a bird of prey, reflecting their predatory nature, and their calls are strident.

Shrikes are known for their habit of catching insects and small vertebrates and impaling their bodies on thorns, the spikes on barbed-wire fences or any available sharp point. This helps them to tear the flesh into smaller, more conveniently-sized fragments, and serves as a cache so that the shrike can return to the uneaten portions at a later time.

The Son of God referred to Satan as a bird (Matthew 13:3-4, 18-19). The description of the Shrike provides an allusion to Satan who had Christ impaled on a tree. Satan has been planning his revenge for being cast out of heaven a very long time. Now, at the end of this age, he is about to bring all his years of patient waiting and planning to culmination, just like the man in the movie. Like the magicians recruited to carry out this act of vengeance in the movie, Satan is not afraid to do his work openly, for he believes he is smarter than everyone else.

Now You See Me – The First Rule of Magic

The Bible describes Satan as “full of wisdom” (Ezekiel 28:12), and as “cunning” (Genesis 3:1). Without argument, Satan possesses greater intelligence than mankind. He has also had far greater time to plan his acts of wrath and vengeance than any man. However, those who have been born again of the Holy Spirit have “the mind of Christ.” Christ is far wiser and intelligent than Satan. If we will abide in Christ, we need not be deceived by the adversary. The apostle Paul spoke of being aware of Satan’s methods and trickery.

II Corinthians 2:11
To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions.
[Amplified Bible]

One of Satan’s devices is misdirection. This is practiced to a great degree by those who are servants of Satan today. They draw people’s attention in one direction to mask what they are doing elsewhere. This ability to direct people’s attention is easily accomplished since Satan’s servants control the global media. Misdirection is a foundational tool used in magic. It has proven to be highly effectual in deceiving humanity regarding what is really taking place.

Now You See Me – Misdirection

The basis for magic is deception. Knowing this to be true, I have often had difficulty with the idea of Christians using magic as a tool to share the gospel, entertain children and adults, or as an introduction to some doctrinal message. Unless their message is about deception, it seems incongruous to use the tactics of the devil to advance the kingdom of God. Christ is the Truth. He did not come to deceive mankind, but to open their eyes to truth. Magicians and servants of Satan, on the other hand, rely upon acts of deception to advance their agenda. You and I are the targeted audience of their deceptions. Consequently, we are commanded to “be wise as serpents, yet innocent as doves.”

Now You See Me – Targeted Deception

The move Now You See Me centers around three public performances of magic, which are actually acts of deception that have been planned out for decades. The final act takes place in New York City at a location called Five Pointz. This is undoubtedly a reference to Satanic black magic which often is performed around the image of a pentagram, an image having five points. During this last public performance the magicians proclaim the various prerequisites for magic/deception to be successful. The three prerequisites named are “belief,” “faith,” and “trust.” They go on to ask, “What happens if these qualities are not used for their higher purpose?” There is much dissembling here, for the one’s speaking, like Satan himself, only imagine what they are doing to be for some high and lofty purpose. In actuality, their motives are the most base, being rooted in selfishness.

Now You See Me – What is Magic

When I saw this movie in 2013 I spent time meditating upon the practice of looking to movies, Olympic ceremonies, books, magazines, music and their videos, or other forms of Satanically controlled media, to ascertain what the future holds. The evidence that Satan has used these forums to forecast some part of his diabolical plan is undeniable. In hindsight, the evidence is plain to see. Many people have revealed the myriad of ways in which the events of 9-11-2001 were announced ahead of time through various forms of media.

Although these links are not difficult to make in hindsight, it is quite difficult to examine the media and try to predict specific future events. Nevertheless, this is what many people are attempting to do. They end up spending inordinate amounts of time, thought, and energy attempting to predict the next move of Satan and his human servants. I believe The Economist magazine cover is inviting people to do this very thing. It is an act of misdirection. We are being invited to focus on what Satan is holding up before us, all the while he is working elsewhere.

If magic and deception requires “belief,” “faith,” and “trust” in order to be successful, we would do well to exhibit none of these things when it comes to the propaganda put out by the proponents of the New World Order. We should ALWAYS anticipate that some form of cunning, lying, and deception is being practiced.

Please understand that I am not suggesting that no attention should be given to these things. Rather, I would counsel the people of God to exercise wisdom as they weigh how much of their time, thought, and energy should be devoted to these deceitful forms of communication. The saints of God should also approach all such media sources with a high degree of skepticism, being alert to the cunning of the adversary.

Many of the events I write about in the Parables Blog are not media creations. I do place a higher regard upon actual events, such as the story of Christian Faith dying of fear at a horror theme park, the SS United States facing the scrap bin, or some celestial sign such as a comet, planetary conjunction, or solar and lunar eclipses. Movies and magazine covers may contain some clues as to what is coming upon the world, but they are much more subject to manipulation and deceit. So beware. Don’t indiscriminately chase every rabbit that presents itself before you. Satan is a master performer. He has pulled many a rabbit out of a hat when it suited his purposes.
