Dark Deeds in the City of Light

Joseph Herrin (11-16-2015)

In the evening of November 13, 2015 a series of violent attacks occurred at various locations across the city of Paris, France. As the news reports came in, the number of people murdered and injured steadily escalated. Early reports mentioned ten people confirmed dead, then forty, and as I write this the number has risen to 129 confirmed dead and more than 350 wounded. The majority of the casualties occurred at the Bataclan Theater in the 11th Arrondissement (district) of Paris. A concert was in progress when gunmen began firing automatic weapons into the crowd gathered to watch the American music group Eagles of Death Metal perform. A hostage situation ensued, with the eventual outcome of more than 100 people perishing at this location alone.

Bombs were also exploded outside of the Stade de France, the premier sports arena for the French people. A soccer game (football to the non-Americans) was being played between Germany and France. The President of France was in attendance at the stadium when the attacks occurred.

If you were to believe what the corporate media and the leaders of national governments are stating, these attacks were carried out by Muslim extremists associated with the group ISIS. The plan was purportedly hatched in Syria, at an ISIS training center, and it utilized a sleeper cell of Muslims who were centered in Brussels, Belgium. However, the disciple of Christ would be ill advised to believe these “official” reports. The world is a very deceptive place. Both the government leaders and the media are controlled by the “hidden hand” of Satan. Deception is one of their chief tools to rule over the people and accomplish their Luciferian agendas.

Matthew 10:16-17
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; therefore be wise as serpents, and innocent as doves. But beware of men…”

Brothers and sisters, it greatly distresses me to observe the naivete, the gullibility, indeed the profound foolishness of the people of God. Far from being “wise as serpents,” the vast majority of Christians today have abandoned all rational skepticism. They lack discernment, unable to recognize the overflowing deceit and delusion that covers the entire world as the water covers the sea beds. It grieves me to see so many Christians in America who continue to act as if it will make a difference whether a Republican or a Democrat sits in the White House. How can people who are such children in their thinking stand in the hour of darkness that is even now at the door?

I Corinthians 14:20
Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be babes, but in your thinking be mature.

The apostle Paul’s admonition here is NOT that Christians are to be infantile in their awareness of evil. Rather, it is that they are to be babes in their participation with, and practice of, evil. The apostle  both begins and ends his statement by admonishing the people of God to “not be children in your thinking…, but in your thinking be mature.” The mature believer, the one who practices discernment, those who are wise as serpents – being aware of Satan’s devices, will be alert to the works of darkness all around them.

Three years ago I wrote the book Dragon Flood. The aim of this book was to open the eyes of the people of God to the gross deception and pervasive lies that are all around them. The citizens of the nations have been spoon fed lies from the moment they entered this fallen world under the rule of Satan. The lies come from the public and private schools, from the television, from magazines, radio, and movies. The lies come from the government. The lies also come from the pulpits, for deceived and deceiving men and women occupy the positions of instruction and authority among the churches.

The Bible declares to the sons and daughters of God that this world is a huge masquerade, a charade of deception. This is true because Satan is “the god of this world,” and he has blinded the eyes of men to the truth.

II Corinthians 4:4
The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving…

It would be bad enough if it were only the unbelieving who were deceived by Satan. However, we are told that the “whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (I John 5:19). Furthermore, in the book of Revelation, we are informed that as long as Satan is loosed upon this earth, this will be the condition of mankind.

Revelation 20:2-3
And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed…

At this moment, Satan is not bound. He is carrying out his evil plans. He reigns as the god of this world, having gained this authority when Adam disobeyed Yahweh and chose to follow the counsel of Satan. Satan has found many willing followers from among mankind. These are men and women who have sold themselves to do evil in exchange for the rewards that Satan gives to them. These servants have names such as Obama, Merkel, Hollande, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg. They sit in the seats of power over the nations. They hold positions of authority over global corporations, including the global media. They are instruments of deception in Satan’s hands.

Would you as a Christian and a child of God go to a church of Satan to hear truth? Would you enter a temple of Baal to seek wisdom? Would you approach a disciple of Lucifer to be instructed about the events of this world? If you are turning on the television and getting your information from the talking heads on the media news broadcasts, that is precisely what you are doing. If you are looking to the President of the United States to tell you the truth about the slaughter that occurred in Paris this past week, you are behaving foolishly. You are acting as a person who has no discernment.

Do you truly believe that Barack Obama, the man who has spent the past seven years of his presidency telling Americans that homosexuality is a virtuous and honorable lifestyle, that people are born “gay,” that it is the inalienable right of women to murder their babies in the womb, that “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” is going to tell you the truth about anything? Satan has appointed those to positions of power over the nations who will carry forth his agenda. They are liars and deceivers in his own image. They are men and women who call evil good, and good evil. Do you believe things will be different in America if another President named Bush, or Clinton, occupies the Oval Office?

I assure you, the events in Paris are nothing like what the media and government officials are describing. In the book Dragon Flood, I quoted from the writings of Edward Bernays. Bernays was a nephew of Sigmund Freud, and one of Satan’s chosen instruments to formulate the media and government propaganda policies to keep the masses deceived. In his book Propaganda, Edward Bernays wrote:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which democratic society is organized…

Whatever attitude one chooses toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons – a trifling fraction… who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world…

Governments, whether they are monarchical, constitutional, democratic or communist, depend upon acquiescent public opinion for the success of their efforts and, in fact, government is government only by virtue of public acquiescence…

If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible…

At the same time, the manipulators of patriotic opinion made use of the mental cliches and the emotional habits of the public to produce mass reactions against the alleged atrocities, the terror, and the tyranny of the enemy.

Those who own the media do not wait for news stories to come along, and then merely spin the accounts to serve their own interests. They manufacture the news events. In the book PR! A History of Spin, Stuart Ewen quoted Edward Bernays.

As Bernays explained it, “the engineer of consent must create news.” He must orchestrate public occurrences so they will be noticed and will harvest the acquiescence necessary to sustain the desired outcome…

“Newsworthy events, involving people, usually do not happen by accident. They are planned deliberately to accomplish a purpose, to influence our ideas and actions.”

Bataclan Theater

The massacre in Paris is one of these “new ways” that have been contrived “to bind and guide the world.” It is the work of a ruling elite who are creating events which can be used to alter the public mind, and predispose the population to accept the societal and governmental changes they have envisioned. The very venues chosen by Satan and his servants for this slaughter to take place were chosen for their symbolic, yet largely hidden (occult) significance. The majority of the people slain and injured in Paris were attending a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal at the Bataclan Theater. The Bataclan was named after an operetta of the same name. A recurring theme of the operetta Bataclan was that the main characters were not who they appeared to be. Outwardly, they appeared to be officials and members of an Oriental court, but in reality they were French citizens who had adopted false personas. Note in the photo of the theater above the Oriental influence in its design, yet this is a thoroughly French building in the capital city of France. The building’s appearance is itself a charade, a facade, evoking an image of something that it is not.

Due to a law in France in place during the 1850s when Bataclan was written, the musical consisted of only one act. The terrorist attack at the Bataclan Theater was also one act carried out in Paris on Friday the 13th. The plot of the operetta named Bataclan involved a conspiracy to overthrow the government. There is a saying that “truth is stranger than fiction.” The saying is true in this instance, for in a building named after a musical that focused on death, betrayal, masquerade, deception, and conspiracy there occurred an act that is aptly described by each of these words.

The purposes the ruling elite had in mind when they devised this plan of slaughter in Paris are already becoming apparent. Francois Hollande, France’s President, gave a speech to the French Parliament today in which he declared that the French Constitution must be re-written to handle emergency situations. On the other side of the Pacific Ocean, media darling and Presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who has been positioned as a man of the people and anti-government, revealed that he is in fact just another Luciferian puppet carrying out the “master’s plan.”

“I would hate to do it, but it’s something that you’re going to have to strongly consider,” Trump told MSNBC on Monday. He said the government should increase surveillance in and around mosques and Americans must reassess some of their civil liberties in this dangerous time.

“We have to be much tougher,” he said. “We are going to have to give up certain privileges that we’ve always had.”

Part of the schemes of Satan, and his human subjects, is to create crisis and then suggest a response. The crisis in this case is terrorism. This terrorism is ENTIRELY manufactured by the very individuals in the government who are decrying it. Almost immediately after the attacks occurred in Paris, the blame was laid squarely upon members of the Muslim group ISIS. As I have reported in other blog posts, ISIS was created, equipped, trained, and funded by the CIA, the Defense Department, and other agents of the United States and its allies. See the post titled Have You Been Played Lately?


The evidence is overwhelming. ISIS was recruited, trained, and equipped by the U.S. military and CIA in training camps in Jordan and other nations in the region. They are using U.S. equipment they reportedly “stole” from bases in Iraq where massive amounts of military equipment was left behind and unguarded. ISIS does nothing unless its authorities in the CIA and associated government entities order it to be done. The stark truth is that the slaughter of French citizens in Paris was ordered by world rulers who have sold their souls to Satan and who view the masses as sheep that must be manipulated into accepting whatever draconian restrictions they want to place upon their freedoms and rights. In this case, the people are being stampeded through the use of fear to get them to not only agree with the abdication of their rights, but to call for the government to enact a Big Brother form of surveillance and control that the people have been deluded into believing will guarantee their peace and safety. Earlier today CNN reported the following:

Reflecting just how nervous Paris is right now, a panic broke out Sunday evening in a crowd gathered at a memorial erected at one of the sites of Friday’s terror attacks.

Video showed mourners suddenly spooked, though it’s still unclear why.

People ran away screaming. Some jumped over lit candles of the memorial, others grabbed their children and sprinted away.

The panic ended quickly and police cleared the memorial, saying no one is allowed to gather, at least for the time being.

Security has been stepped up, with military reinforcements drafted in.

Panic in Paris as People Flee a Memorial

One site reported that these panic experiences happened multiple times in Paris as people gathered at different memorials of the slaughter which took place. It was stated that one of the stampedes was precipitated by a lightbulb shattering in a nearby pub that someone mistook for gunfire. Immediately after the attacks on Friday I was looking at news reports which largely focused on government officials making statements of support for the French people, and condemnation of the terrorists. I noted how many times the words “terror,” “terrorism,” and associated words were used. This repetition of the word “terror” in its various forms is being used to stoke the fears of the people, for there is no greater emotional manipulator of mankind than fear. The gross hypocrisy of the matter is that the very government officials speaking words of support for the French population were those who are complicit in the plan to slaughter innocent civilians in order to “manufacture their consent” and gain their acquiescence to their New World Order plans.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the French people that Germany would “lead this fight together with you against those who did such unimaginable things to you.” Angela Merkel is no angel, but she is a servant to the fallen angel who rules as the god of this world. She is as complicit in the murder of innocents as any other national leader from Europe or the United States.

National Leaders Holding a Moment of Silence for Paris Victims

The G20 summit concluded in Antalya, Turkey today. It was attended entirely by servants of Satan who are pledged to carrying out Satan’s master plan for a one world government. The ultimate plan for this global government includes the formation of a group of “wise rulers” who will determine for all mankind what is best for them the planet they live on. There will no longer be any “inalienable rights” or freedoms. The only freedom people will have will be those explicitly given to them by this cabal of Luciferian governors. As Donald Trump has stated, “Americans must reassess some of their civil liberties in this dangerous time. We have to be much tougher. We are going to have to give up certain privileges that we’ve always had.” It will be these “wise” world rulers that will determine what privileges will have to be given up.

Note the subtlety and cunning in the use of the word “privileges.” By defining human freedom as a “privilege,” whatever activity is in view is redefined as something granted by one party to another, rather than something that is the inherent right of all people. What might these privileges be that Donald Trump is talking about? Here are a few that will certainly be on the chopping block.

  • The right to privacy.
  • The right to free speech.
  • The right to freely access the Internet for publishing or inquiry.
  • The right to keep and bear arms.

Why do I mention these four? Because they have all been mentioned prominently in the global media accounts following the events in Paris. The governments of the world are calling for greater transparency in being able to access all communications worldwide. They want unrestricted monitoring of the Internet, telephones, mail, and other forms of communication. It has been mentioned frequently that the ISIS perpetrators have been using the Internet in sophisticated ways to formulate and carry out their plans. This is nonsense, but it serves as a pretense to crack down on unrestricted access to the Internet, and the unlimited dissemination of any thoughts, ideas, and opinions which the government deems to be a threat, or determines to be critical of itself.

It has been proposed from various quarters that people be required to obtain a license to access the Internet, and that certain forms of Internet speech be restricted. We will see these ideas carried out in the not-too-distant future. Violators will be branded as terrorists, or enemies of the state, and will face fines, jail, or even death. Do you think this implausible? Such acts have been carried out by the American government in the past. Following is an excerpt from the book Dragon Flood where I wrote of the actions of America’s governmental leaders during the time period of World War I.

The Espionage Act was passed by Congress in 1917. It prescribed a $10,000 fine, and twenty years in prison, for interfering with military operations, or interfering with the recruitment of troops. If a citizen, or newspaper, publicly criticized American involvement in the war they faced severe penalties.

President Woodrow Wilson in his State of the Union address delivered on  December 7, 1915, asked Congress for the legislation. He stated:

There are citizens of the United States … who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt… to destroy our industries… and to debase our politics to the uses of foreign intrigue…. We are without adequate federal laws…. I am urging you to do nothing less than save the honor and self-respect of the nation. Such creatures of passion, disloyalty, and anarchy must be crushed out.

Wilson asked Congress to pass a law that would provide for censorship of the press. He submitted legislation for their consideration that incorporated such censorship, stating,  “Authority to exercise censorship over the press … is absolutely necessary to the public safety.”

I am confident that it was not “the public safety” that President Wilson was actually concerned with. Rather, it was the interests of the money trusts, such as the Rockefeller’s, Morgan, Carnegie, and others. These are the ones who were being criticized in the press, and who stood to benefit the most by entry into the war.

Congress voted down censorship of the press by only one vote, 39 to 38. Nevertheless, when entry into the war was secured in 1917, Congress passed the Espionage Act which effectively gave the government power to censor the press and imprison citizens who spoke in opposition to the policies of the government. The Espionage Act of 1917 made it a crime:

To convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies. This was punishable by death or by imprisonment for not more than 30 years or both.

To convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies when the United States is at war, to cause or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or to willfully obstruct the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States. This was punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000 or by imprisonment for not more than 20 years or both.

The Act also gave the Postmaster General authority to impound or to refuse to mail publications that he determined to be in violation of its prohibitions.
[Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espionage_Act_of_1917]

The restrictions to speech were extended in the Sedition Act of 1918. Among the prohibitions added were “any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States… or the flag of the United States, or the uniform of the Army or Navy.”

The Espionage Act was no idle threat. In a period of months more than 900 people were sent to prison. Additionally, a number of newspapers and magazines were forced out of business as the government forbade them to use the postal service to distribute their anti-war writings.
[End Excerpt]

(Note: The quote above by Voltaire, a French citizen, has a further link to this story. The Bataclan Theater’s address is “50 boulevard Voltaire.”)

Today we not only have the “press,” but also the Internet. There is a significant percentage of the Internet that is used to promulgate information and ideas that the governments of the world, and the architects of the New World Order, consider seditious, dangerous, or harmful to their agenda. This free flow of ideas across the Internet will not be permitted to continue much longer, for we are now entering the end of the age when Satan’s plans will come to fruition. The only speech that will be allowed will be that speech that agrees with and promotes the ideas and plans of the global elite. All other communications will be banned, having been labeled as “disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive.” Truly independent and free speech will be among those “civil liberties,” or “privileges” people will have to give up. The commission of “thought crimes” will be a punishable offense. People will be sent to re-education camps, or consigned to some gulag where they will be heard from no more.

Brothers and sisters, what occurred in Paris is just one event of many carried out by men and women who in their great pride believe they alone know what is best for mankind and the planet. They justify their treachery, their murder and maiming of mankind, as the necessary acts needed to guide all mankind wisely to the end they have envisioned.

The events in Paris will not be the last such atrocities that they commit, nor the worst. Far more destructive acts will be carried out until the hearts of all mankind become gripped with such terror that the people cry out for the implementation of a draconian surveillance and police state to protect them all.

Satan has blinded the eyes of mankind so that they do not see things as they truly are. If you are a child of God, born again of the Spirit of Christ, you need not stumble about in the darkness. Open your eyes. Receive the illumination granted to those who have been given the mind of Christ. Do not be deceived. Walk wisely, for the days are very dark and are growing darker.

P.S. I do not wish to imply that there are no other motives behind these attacks carried out by the ruling elite and their puppets in governmental offices and agencies. There is definitely an additional motive of using this event as justification to expand the scope of military action in Syria. It was mentioned that on one of the terrorist’s dead bodies there was found a Syrian passport. Some media reports cited unnamed individuals present at the attack locations hearing the terrorists state that the attacks were retaliation for France’s attacks against ISIS in Syria.

Such very convenient evidence is often presented immediately after a “terror attack” to bolster the government’s plan to retaliate against the supposed perpetrators of the events. The truth is, Syria is one of a few remaining nations that has not bowed to the will of the global rulers and their plans. For this reason, Syria has been targeted for destruction, and her leaders for elimination. This is a repeat of events recently observed in Libya and before that in Iraq. Any nation that resists the global masters of finance and corporate power who are entrenched in the seats of power over entire nations, will be crushed. This is a fulfillment of the following passage of Scripture.

Revelation 13:4
And they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?”

Syrian President Bashar Assad will discover like Muammar Khaddafi and Saddam Hussein before him, that resisting the global beast government is vain, and might be described as suicidal.

    The following is posted for a brother and sister in England.

    Dear brother Joseph

    Once again we are writing to thank you for the latest blog – concerning what happened in Paris.

    Having read your book Dragon Flood several years ago we have learnt to see the news in a different manner and always look to see what lies behind what the media give to us, knowing who is pulling the strings.

    I just wanted to recommend the book to anyone who hasn't yet read it. It certainly helps to keep our eyes fixed on the Saviour and not on the 'puppet master.'

    Shalom and Blessings

    John and Ros Scott
