Lunacy & The Age of Deception – Chapter 21

The Spirit of Anti-Christ Revealed in NASA

When juxtaposing the words uttered by the leader of the fallen angels alongside the logo belonging to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, a suggested relationship springs to mind. NASA is an agency whose overarching goal is to enable men to ascend to heaven, to rise above the heights of the clouds, and to place the stars of the heavens within the grasp of man. This aspiration which lies at the foundation of NASA’s existence echoes the ambition manifested by that cherubic being, the angelic majesty, who is known as the devil and Satan.

Isaiah 14:13-14
But you said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”

Pride and space exploration go hand in hand. There is a popular expression people use when they want to diminish the reputation of some activity or accomplishment. They say, “It’s not rocket science.” Rocket science is seen as the pinnacle of human endeavor. It requires the greatest minds, the keenest intellects, the highest levels of education. Because the goals of space exploration are lofty, so too must be the character and reputation of those who engage in this pursuit. Mere mortals need not apply. Space exploration is reserved for those who excel all others. It is the realm of the mighty of the Earth. So too, we find that Satan had extraordinary qualities.

Ezekiel 28:12, 14-15
“You had the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty… You were the anointed cherub who covers, and I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you.”

Personal strengths often turn out to be a liability among Yahweh’s creatures. When we deem ourselves to be self-sufficient and highly capable in some area, we tend to rely less on the guidance, wisdom, and power of God. It is for this reason that God primarily chooses the weak and common people of the Earth to build His kingdom. The Kingdom of God cannot be built through the efforts of flesh and blood. It is a spiritual kingdom and must be built through the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

I Corinthians 1:26-29
For [simply] consider your own call, brethren; not many [of you were considered to be] wise according to human estimates and standards, not many influential and powerful, not many of high and noble birth. [No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame. And God also selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is lowborn and insignificant and branded and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, that He might depose and bring to nothing the things that are, so that no mortal man should [have pretense for glorying and] boast in the presence of God.
[Amplified Bible]

Since God chooses primarily men and women who are unexceptional in birth, in personal attributes, or achievements, in essence – the common folk of this world, to build His kingdom, it should be anticipated that Satan would choose the opposite. Satan is the originator of the ANTI-Christ spirit. He does all things in reverse of Yahweh and His Son. If you want to work for NASA you must demonstrate that you have “the right stuff.”

After all, NASA is where heroes are made and legends are born. Yet, unrecognized by most of mankind, possessing exceptional strength and ability predisposes all creatures to certain weaknesses. One particular weakness is what the Greeks called “hubris.” In Greek tragedies, hubris manifested as excessive pride, often in defiance of the gods, and it always resulted in divine retribution. Hubris was born out of an individual’s conception of their own strength, wisdom, and abilities.

The Greek concept of hubris aptly describes the failings of the being known as the devil and Satan. It was conceit, an exaggerated opinion of his own magnificence, which led to Satan’s fall.

Ezekiel 28:17
Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.

The apostle Paul gives counsel to Timothy to beware of placing a new convert to Christianity in a position of leadership. To give a man honor and responsibility before he has gained some spiritual maturity and the concomitant characteristic of humility, could be disastrous.

I Timothy 3:2, 6
An overseer, then, must be above reproach…, and not a new convert, lest he become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil.

If man ascends before he bends (before God) it will be his undoing. Satan sought to ascend, only to find himself being cast down.

Isaiah 14:12
How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth…

Luke 10:18
And [Yahshua] said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.”

The Son of God gave some salient counsel to His disciples.

Luke 14:7-11
And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor at the table; saying to them, “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him, and he who invited you both shall come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place. But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher’; then you will have honor in the sight of all who are at the table with you. For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.”

The Spirit of Christ does not grasp for honor. The Son of God emptied Himself of the glory He had in heaven and took on the form of a bondservant. He washed His disciples feet. He was a servant to God and man. He submitted to being numbered among the transgressors. Because of His lowliness and selflessness, Yahshua was rightfully promoted to take His seat at the right hand of His Father in heaven and He has been given Him a name which is above every name.

We see a very different history in the life of Satan and in the history of NASA. Christ descended from heaven to Earth, but those manifesting the spirit of Satan seek to ascend from the Earth to the highest heavens. What they cannot actually accomplish, they will boast of doing.

I believe the resemblance of the red vector symbol of the NASA logo to the image of a serpent’s forked tongue, may be intentional, and it is certainly fitting. Satan is called in the Bible “the serpent of old” and “the great dragon.”

Revelation 12:9
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

NASA has from its inception been an agency of pride and boasting. It’s intended purpose was to enable men to ascend to the heavens. These attributes of NASA mark it as a work of the devil. Yet the parallels go beyond this. Like the serpent in the Garden of Eden and the dragon of the book of Revelation, NASA has employed lies and deception throughout its history.

Both NASA and Satan have boasted of great things which they cannot actually accomplish. Satan cannot ascend to the highest heaven. He cannot raise his throne above the stars of God. He cannot sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. And he cannot make himself like the Most High. Similarly, NASA cannot accomplish the many things of which it boasts. It cannot place men on the Moon. It cannot send men to Mars. It cannot establish permanent habitats for mankind on other heavenly bodies. Yet NASA never tires of making such vaunted claims.

Abuse of the gift of speech is an attribute of Satan and of those who manifest his spirit. Satan is a liar and a deceiver. He is boastful and arrogant. He is the father of all who behave similarly.

John 8:44
Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.

The serpent has from antiquity been associated with speech for the most prominent external organ of the serpent is its mouth. It has neither arms, nor hands, nor legs, nor feet. This connection between the serpent and speech is frequently negative as in the idiom attributed to the Native American Indians who characterized the lying white man as one who“spoke with a forked tongue.” In the book The History of the American Indians, published in 1775, the leaders of the Chickasaw tribe spoke ruefully of the white man’s lawyers whom they described as “hired speakers, who use their squint eyes and forked tongues like the chieftains of the snakes, (meaning rattle-snakes) which destroy harmless creatures for the sake of food.”

Rattle Snake

It was in the form of a serpent that Satan appeared to Eve in the Garden of Eden. The serpent’s first recorded communication with mankind was characterized by lying and deception.

Genesis 3:13
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

The forked tongue of the snake has consequently taken on an association with duplicity, double dealing, and dishonesty. The red vector in the NASA logo looks suspiciously like the forked tongue of a serpent. NASA claims that the red vector is representative of an airplane wing. (They had to come up with some explanation, no matter how implausible.) As observed in the occult elements of the Great Seal of the United States, Satan has frequently inspired men to imbue their symbols with elements which are secretly references to his own person and schemes.

The Great Seal

This conclusion that the red vector is actually a serpent’s tongue is further supported by the NASA logotype which was used between 1975 and 1992. This logotype was referred to as “the worm.”

The “serpentine” form of the logo led to the adoption of its nickname. Why is this information relevant? There is much we can learn as we understand the connection between the anti-Christ spirit manifested by Satan and NASA and its correlation to the serpent. Yahweh has frequently communicated truth through types and symbols. The characterization of Satan as a serpent is one from which we can gain much insight. In the third chapter of the book of Genesis we first meet the serpent.

Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more subtle than any living creature of the field which Yahweh God had made.

Some Bible translations use words such as “cunning,” or “crafty” in place of the word subtle. The Hebrew word found in the original manuscripts is “aruwm.” This Hebrew word is used in both positive and negative applications. It is at times translated as “prudent” or “wise.”

Proverbs 12:23
prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

Note how this Hebrew word is contrasted to the word “fools.” We previously read of Satan, that He was “full of wisdom.” This wisdom of Satan was twisted and distorted in his fall. It became tainted by selfishness and vain ambition and is accurately described by the words “cunning” and “crafty.” We see the employment of this extraordinary capacity of Satan throughout the Bible as deception is his primary instrument to subjugate, enslave, and destroy the lives of men. This is important to understand. Satan did not try to wrest dominion over the earth away from man through force or intimidation. He chose to do it through subtlety and deception. Why? Because this is where he considers himself to excel all other creatures.

Let us consider another contrast between Christ and anti-Christ. The Son of God declared, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” (John 8:32). Since truth is freeing, then falsehood, lies, and deception must be enslaving. Christ employs truth in order to set men free. By contrast we can perceive that Satan uses lies and deception to enslave humanity. Understanding this, we are then prepared to answer the question of why NASA, the American government, and the global elite who own the corporations and control the media, are practicing lying and deception on such a grand scale. It is all about control. Lies and deception are a means to enslave the masses.

We discussed this previously when we looked at the subject of the use of propaganda. Edward Bernays plainly disclosed that propaganda (i.e., deception and false reporting) was necessary to regiment the masses. Deception is used to manipulate mankind into supporting the works and plans of a powerful elite who are themselves servants of Satan. The deceptions of the Cold War, the Space Race, and the goal of putting a man on the Moon before the decade of the 1960s was out, were all used to enslave the masses.

You may ask, “In what way were the people enslaved?” Who do you think paid for the tens of billions of dollars poured into the Space Race, or the hundreds of billions of dollars, rubles, and whatever other national currencies were involved, which were poured into the coffers of the military/industrial complex’s corporations to support the Cold War? Through means contrived conflicts, governments were induced to borrow massive amounts of money from international bankers, money which the citizens of those nations became obligated to pay back. By such means the entire world has been covertly brought into bondage to a small number of global elite who are servants of Satan.

If the truth sets men free, a deceived populace must of necessity be an enslaved people. How many lies and illusions is mankind laboring under today? The list of deceptions is endless. In this book I have chosen just one deception from among the myriads that are prevalent in this world. The accumulated influence of these massed deceptions is staggering. Lies are never harmless. They result in mental, physical, and spiritual bondage.

Satan could use guns and bullets to subjugate mankind. He has often done so. Yet more often he uses deception. An enslaved people who imagine themselves to be free are happier, more productive, and easier to control. Consequently, Satan has sold humanity a false vision of this world. This vision glorifies material consumption. People are plied from birth with the message that money and possessions will result in happy and fulfilled lives. An insatiable lust for more possessions, more entertainments, more pleasures is fanned so that men and women will voluntarily surrender their time, their will, their freedom, their energy, their thought, and all they possess to striving in a global system of commerce and corporate dominion.

The result is that women have abandoned the home and child rearing in order to toil with men in the corporate workspace. Children are put in daycare, and then public and private school systems whose chief goal is to prepare them to be acquiescent, mindless drones in the global corporatocracy. Through an endless litany of corporate advertising and media indoctrination people are taught to “consume, consume, consume.” Thus they become both client and slave of the corporate system. Like insensate automatons we are molded from birth to take the role of a serf, a wage slave in this Luciferian world system.

What this book seeks to illumine is the role deception plays in a world under the dominion of Satan. Pick any of the Ten Commandments and you will find that they are violated as a matter of course by the governments and rulers of this world. The Ten Commandments say, “Thou shalt not kill.” Yet America, whom some erroneously contend to be a Christian nation, has been involved continuously in wars and global conflicts for the past one hundred years. She is the world leader in the production and sale of weaponry designed to kill and maim mankind. She uses missiles fired from drones to murder people without trial or charge. She invades sovereign nations, deposing legally appointed rulers, slaughtering millions of citizens in an effort to subjugate foreign peoples to her will, taking control of their natural resources.

This same government promotes and defends the right of all women to murder their babies while in the womb. Since 1973 more than fifty million American children have been slaughtered in this way. The commandment “Thou shalt not kill” is not just occasionally violated by the American government. It is egregiously, prolifically, continuously violated. Do you suppose the commandment which says “Thou shalt not lie” is violated to any lesser degree? I tell you, it is not. Lies are the currency in which politics are conducted. Lies and deceit are poured forth daily as a mighty flood. They sweep people away into a sea of illusion with the result that the masses are made willing vassals of wicked rulers, supporting policies and actions born in the mind of Satan. The lying tongue turns men into slaves today just as it did in the Garden of Eden.

NASA has never existed for the protection and benefit of the American people, so why do Americans pay for it? Why do they throw their support behind it? Why do they speak proudly of NASA’s accomplishments? They are misled to believe NASA exists for their national interests and the benefit of American citizens. It matters not whether this is true. It only matters that the people believe it to be true. Many of NASA’s most glorious accomplishments, the source of her greatest boasting, are lies. NASA never sent men to the Moon. Apollo astronauts never planted flags on the lunar surface. They did not take a dune buggy to the Moon and frolic around in it. NASA astronauts did not take photos and collect rocks while walking on the face of the Moon. It was all lies!

You’re Just Back From The Moon? Tell Me Another Funny One!

This Is Real – (Proboscis Monkey)

This Is Real – (Gerenuk)

This Is NOT Real – (Man on the Moon)

Hopefully, now that we are nearing the end of this book, you are as convinced as I am of the Apollo Space Program being a huge deception. Perhaps you find it disturbing when you consider the ramifications of what this reveals about the world we live in. David McGowan expressed it well in his book Wagging the Moondoggie. “If NASA was able to pull off such an outrageous hoax before the entire world, and then keep that lie in place for four decades, what does that say about the control of the information we receive? What does that say about the media, and the scientific community, and the educational community, and all the other institutions we depend on to tell us the truth? What does that say about the very nature of the world we live in?

One thing it says is that lies and deception are more common than most people realize. We are being lied to by virtually every institution we rely upon to inform our view of the world. If you are a child in school you are being fed lies about world history, scientific endeavors, and a great many other things. When you turn on the television to watch the news you are observing talking heads delivering canned news stories which are laced with falsehood and deception. When you read a magazine, a newspaper, or listen to the radio, you are being presented with an illusory image of the world you live in. When you visit a museum of science you are being plied with distortions of the truth. When you look for facts in an encyclopedia you are very likely to encounter falsehood.

Mankind is routinely lied to by their governments. Military actions are engaged in on behalf of corporate interests, not national defense. Your sons and daughters in the armed forces are essentially hit men for organized crime. They slaughter and maim and destroy nations on false pretense and take pride in doing so for they have been deluded to believe they are protecting national interests, defending democracy, and freeing foreign citizens from their oppressors.

Millions of citizens participate in sectarian politics. In America they rally behind Republican or Democrat or Independent. They believe that politicians are what they profess to be. They believe their vote will make a difference. They think the man sitting in the White House is the one calling the shots. Yet it is all puppet theater for the somnambulant masses. The government was sold long ago to the bankers and corporations.

A brother in Christ recently wrote to me expressing the thought that it was unprofitable for me to compose a writing on the subject of the Apollo deception. He suggested that the disciples of Christ should have their focus on the Kingdom of God, rather than on the affairs of this world. He could conceive of no benefit to be derived from placing attention on this subject. One might ask, “How is a Christian’s life in this world, or their spiritual walk, impacted by what they believe about the American government’s claims to have sent men to the Moon more than 40 years ago?”

This is a fair question. My concern from the beginning of this writing has been that Christians who believe the government and media claims of men going to the Moon between the years 1969 and 1972 are failing to recognize the extent to which mankind is being plied with lies, some of them quite grandiose and audacious. If Christians do not recognize the false nature of this present world under Satan’s dominion; If they do not perceive the necessity of testing everything they read, hear, and see, they will be ripe for future deceptions. These deceptions will result in bondage, hurt, or great spiritual loss for many.

Part of being a citizen of the kingdom of God is having one’s eyes opened to see the world as it truly is. Although we are citizens of a heavenly kingdom, we are walking in a world under the rule of Satan. There is a point of intersection between these kingdoms, and we experience life at this point. We should seek wisdom, desiring to perceive this world as God does. There are no innocent deceptions or harmless lies. There is no profit to be found by embracing illusions. The Scriptures adjure us to walk wisely in this world, and to not be deceived.

Ephesians 5:15-16
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

We have an adversary in this life, and his chief weapon is deception. If we would walk as overcomers we must be alert to, and aware of, his schemes and devices.

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]

This book has not merely been about exposing the lie of the Apollo Space Program. Its aim  has been to expose the deceptive nature of the entire world in which we live. The Apollo Space Program has been a fitting subject, for it is something of which all people are aware. It is also a topic in which a great many people have been duped. If you care to ponder it, the initials of the Apollo Space Program also point back to the serpent of old who continues to speak lies to men and women.
