Super Bowl XLIX – Mark of the Beast

by | Feb 2, 2015

Joseph Herrin (02-02-2015)

A brother in Christ left a comment on the blog yesterday asking me if I was going to be writing about this year’s Super Bowl. I responded by saying I had not been paying attention to this event at all, and did not anticipate posting anything on the subject. That was yesterday. You never know what a new day will bring.

Out of curiosity, this morning I pulled up Sports Illustrated’s website to see who won the game which was a contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. (The Patriots won 28-24.) From there I took another step, then another. I did not want to spend much time on the Super Bowl as I am engaged in developing the current series on the Hebrew Roots Movement. However, the presence of a Luciferian/Illuminati message was so evident, and took so little time and effort to scope out, that I decided to post an article on the subject.

Let me begin with what I will refer to as the “environment” of the Super Bowl. By this I mean the location and date in which this event takes place. The date of the Super Bowl was February 1st. On the occult calendar observed by witches, Satanists, pagans, etc., this date is the first of four high sabbaths, being referred to as Imbolg, or Imbolc (the b is silent). The date of this witches sabbath falls about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. The name February is derived from the Latin “februum” which means “purification.” Fire is considered the greatest purifying element, and has a fixed association with purification. Etymologically, both of the words “fire” and “pure” derive from the same root. We can see the similarity in words such as “pyre,” which is a pile of combustible material, often associated with the cremation of a corpse. A pyre is a fire used for purification. This fact has some relationship to the Super Bowl half-time celebration. Satan wants to cleanse the earth of all those who will not bow in obedience to him.

Each of the quarterly witches sabbaths are 13 weeks apart, thirteen being a number associated peculiarly with forbidden spiritual practices and associated with the idea of rebellion in the Bible (See E.W. Bullinger, Number in Scripture). A witches coven always has thirteen witches present, no more and no less. It is not coincidental that Groundhog Day, considered an innocent cultural event by many, but which is traceable back to dark pagan rituals, has its most famous observance in Punxsutawnee, Pennsylvania. The ceremony is convened by thirteen men dressed in black.

Witches Sabbath in Punxsutawney also known as Groundhog Day

Imbolg/Imbolc is derived from Gaelic and means “in the belly.” It is a reference to both the earth and animals being pregnant with new life. The symbol for witchcraft is the pentagram, or five pointed star, with the point up, whereas the symbol of Satanism is the pentagram with the point down.

Wicca Pentagram

Look again at the logo for Super Bowl XLIX at the top of this post and you will observe the five pointed star in the very center of the image indicating that an occult ritual, a witches sabbath, will take place at this venue.

Having established the significance of the date, let us look at the location. Super Bowl XLIX was held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Glendale is located in the Valley of the Sun. The University of Phoenix Stadium is the Valley of the Sun’s main outdoor stadium. It replaced Sun Devil Stadium when it was opened on August 1, 2006. The connection to Sun worship, the devil, and the occult imagery of the Phoenix, declare loudly the Luciferian connections to this venue. Additionally, the stadium is located along 33 degrees north latitude, the number 33 being the highest degree in Scottish Rite Freemasonry.

Ritualistic witchcraft always takes place within the “sacred circle” of the coven and the stadium itself is in the shape of a large circle.

University of Phoenix Stadium

The Phoenix itself is a symbol embraced by Freemasonry and other Luciferian groups. The mythical Phoenix is consumed in fire, but then reborn from the ashes of its own destruction.


As such, the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer/Satan who was cast out of heaven and consumed to ashes, only to arise once more to be the “prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) and the “god of this world” (II Corinthians 4:4).

Ezekiel 28:14-18
“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. By the abundance of your trade you were internally filled with violence, and you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane from the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, that they may see you. By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade, you profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth in the eyes of all who see you.”

Satan has used the Phoenix as a symbol of his own destruction and resurrection, and he is worshiped in this guise by those who are his servants.

Standard Book Given to New Freemasons

The book pictured above features a number of Masonic images on the cover, including the pyramid, the outraying light at the top of the pyramid signifying the all-seeing-eye, and the double-headed Eagle or Phoenix. The entry level Mason is intentionally misled as to the meaning of the symbols and rites of Freemasonry, as Albert Pike admits in his encyclopedic tome on the mysteries of Freemasonry titled Morals and Dogma.

The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine that he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry…

Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it….

The truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason…
[Source: Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, Published 1871]

Albert Pike confessed to the “Princes of Masonry” that their true god is Lucifer, and their doctrines are Luciferian. Albert Pike was the Supreme Commander of all Scottish Rite Freemasonry. There is a statue of him standing in Washington, D.C.. He spoke the following.

That which we must say to the crowd is – We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.

To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General [of the 33rd degree], we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees – The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.

If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay, the God of the Christians, whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?

Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive…

Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil.
[A.C. De La Rive, La Femme et L’enfant dans La Franc-Maconnerie Universelle (Women and Children in Universal Freemasonry), Page 588 ]

Although I have not found this information online, I suspect very strongly that all of the men in top hats involved with the Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney are members of one of the local lodges of Freemasonry.

What is the ritual of Groundhog Day symbolizing? The Groundhog comes out of his burrow (a hole in the earth) and if he sees his shadow winter will persist for six more weeks. It is all about seeing the light of the sun, illumination. The Sun is a star, and Satan/Lucifer is figured as a star that has fallen to the earth. It is this same star that adorns the top of Christmas trees (See the article What’s the Big Deal About Christmas?) It is the same star that carried Katy Perry aloft at the end of the half-time show of the Super Bowl. That the half-time show was a Luciferian ritual should be abundantly clear, but if there is any doubt, compare the checker board floor that is in all Masonic lodges with the floor of the arena during the half-time show.

Super Bowl Chess Board

Masonic Lodge

Checkerboards, the Phoenix, Stars, Imbolg, Groundhog Day, Valley of the Sun, 33 degrees, Sun Devil… what is it all about? What was the message being broadcast during Super Bowl XLIX? To answer this question I must speak about the background of Katy Perry, the singer who was the featured main performer for this witches sabbath. Katy Perry, formerly known as Katy Hudson, comes from a Christian family. Both of her parents are ministers. She started out her singing career as a gospel artist and had hopes of being the next Amy Grant. She has stated in an interview that when her gospel career did not take off, she sold her soul to the devil. She wanted to be a star, and she found in Satan the means to fulfill her desire.

Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) and Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) in The Hunger Games

During the half-time performance, Lenny Kravitz played the role of Satan. He is the star maker. He can make a person’s dreams come true, but they have to bow down and worship him. How do we know this is the role played by Kravitz? It is because this is the same role he has recently played in the very popular The Hunger Games movies. Lenny Kravitz plays the role of Cinna (sounds like slang for “sinner”), a stylist who is assigned to Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence. He takes an average girl and makes her into a star who is idolized by the people. Cinna designs a fire dress that greatly impresses the crowds when Katniss wears it in her first public appearance. Yet, the most significant apparel Cinna designs for Katniss is seen in the following images.

(Click on Image to View Larger)

Each contestant in The Hunger Games appears on television on a type of game show where they are interviewed. In this particular scene, Katniss comes out wearing a wedding dress. She is engaged to marry one of the other contestants. During her interview she spins around and her dress catches fire transforming from white to black and sprouting angels wings. Yet these are black angel’s wings. They are symbolic of Satan. The esoteric meaning here is that Satan is able to transform the bride of Christ into his own image. Lenny Kravitz plays the role of the individual who accomplishes this transformation.

Through the half-time show for Super Bowl XLIX, Katy Perry, the former Christian and gospel singer, appears wearing a fire dress just like Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games. Why is Lenny Kravitz part of the half-time show? It is part of the esoteric ritual. When Kravitz first appears he is singing the song that launched Katy Perry into worldwide fame. The song is I Kissed a Girl (And I Liked It). He is singing this song, for he is appearing in the guise of Satan who transformed Katy Perry into a star by giving her a new career, a new life, a new fame. As Kravitz and Katy Perry are on stage, Katy symbolically gives herself to Kravitz intimately, and bows down before him.

Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz

What is symbolically being portrayed is that because Satan (Kravitz) gave Katy fame by giving her hit songs to sing, she has sold herself to Satan to worship him. She has surrendered herself to Satan fully, allowing him to place his seed in her (they simulate sexual intercourse during the performance). Even as those who have received the seed of Christ are to be transformed into the image of the Son of God, so too does Satan seek to transform men and women into his image. Look again at the image from The Hunger Games to see the transformation of Jennifer Lawrence from a bride to an angel of darkness.

Satan has not changed his methods for he know what works with mankind. When Christ walked the earth Satan offered to Him all the kingdoms of the earth, wealth, fame, everything the world has to offer, for it is all in Satan’s control. Yet the Son of God rebuffed this fallen angel. Tragically, Satan has found multitudes of the sons and daughters of Adam who will accept his offer. In the following video Katy Perry admits to having sold herself to the devil to obtain fame.

This half-time show was used by Satan to mock God, showing Him that Satan can take those who belong to Yahweh and transform them into Satan’s image. Katy Perry enters the stadium in the figure of the whore of Babylon riding upon a beast.

Satan’s Triumphal Entry

Satan is the proud lion showing off the one he has conquered. He has the daughter of two ministers, a former gospel singer, who has sold herself to do his will. He is parading her before the masses, and he has placed his words in her mouth. At the end of this segment, Katy Perry rears back her head as if to roar, but she does not roar in her own voice. Instead the voice of a lion is heard.

I Peter 5:8
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Here is one who did not resist him, and Satan is boasting before a worldwide audience of his victory. In other acts of the show, we see portrayed another means by which Satan ensnares people. Not all people are trapped by their lust for fame or riches. Some are ensnared by their lust for knowledge. Light is used as a symbol of illumination. This is the principle that organizations such as Freemasonry operate upon. They promise the acolyte secret wisdom and hidden knowledge that they can gain nowhere else. As a man advances up the various degrees of Freemasonry he is given greater access to the secret teachings of the lodge, teachings that are reserved for those who demonstrate their loyalty and faithfulness to the lodge and its spiritual ruler, Lucifer.

This is what is signified through the pyramid with the all-seeing eye at the top. The out-raying light from the top of the pyramid symbolizes the knowledge of Lucifer (Lucifer being translated as “light bearer”).

From Darkness to Light

It is not coincidental that just prior to the half-time show, a commercial was broadcast for the Church of Scientology. This false, Luciferian religion ensnares men and women who lust for secret knowledge. It promises wisdom and knowledge to those who covet it.

Repeatedly, during the half-time show there are images of the All-Seeing-Eye. These are references to the vaunted wisdom of Satan which he promises to those who will make themselves his servants. His promise is that through knowledge they will be able to ascend, becoming gods themselves. This is what is illustrated at the very end of the show as Katy Perry ascends into the air, carried aloft by a brilliant blazing star. The star represents both Satan and the knowledge he holds forth.

Katy Perry, Borne Aloft By the Blazing Star

Prior to this, during the chess board routine, we see Katy and the other characters all looking up as if they are imploring Satan, the god of this world, to lift them up above the constraints of this world.

Notice that even the other news sites that have commented on this half-time show have used terms referring to “light” when reviewing the performance. Here is Katy arrayed in her fire dress, just like Katniss Everdeen. Lenny Kravitz ties the two characters together. He was the star maker, the one who could transform an innocent into an angel (albeit a dark one). As Katy is borne aloft she is giving forth testimony that the knowledge of Satan can lift one into heavenly realms. She is also testifying that she has become a star herself. In Hollywood parlance, she is what people would call a star.

A number of sites have commented that the star carrying Katy resembled “The More You Know” star that is a symbol used by NBC.

This is the same five pointed star that is the symbol for witchcraft. Wicca, like Freemasonry, holds forth the allure of sacred knowledge that will enable a person to ascend from this mortal plane into spiritual realms. Knowledge has from the beginning of human history been held forth by Satan to ensnare mankind, leading them away from the will of God.

Genesis 3:4-6
And the serpent said to the woman…, “God knows that in the day you eat from [the forbidden fruit of the tree in the middle of the Garden] your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.

Katy Perry being born aloft by the brilliant star speaks of the promise of Satan to mankind. Humanity can be as gods, if they will partake of the esoteric teachings of Scientology, Kabbalah, and Freemasonry (which is Kabbalah), etc..

As soon as the half-time show ended with Katy Perry borne aloft, the winner of the Super Bowl was foretold. Compare the star carrying Katy with the logo of the New England Patriots.

The five pointed star is emblazoned on the forehead of the Patriot. This speaks of the person having the imprint of the mind of Satan. If you have read the book Dragon Flood, you will know that the founding fathers of America, those who were declared American patriots, truly did have the mind of Lucifer. The rebellion against the King of England was carried forth by Freemasons. It was plotted in the Green Dragon Tavern in Boston, the upper floor of which served as a lodge of Freemasonry.

Much more could be said about this Super Bowl show. I have written this with some haste, being eager to return to the work I have previously engaged. I will include this word in closing. The path to promotion, to ascension, in the kingdom of God is one of humility, suffering, and abasement. Christ is our pattern. He emptied Himself, taking on the form of a bond-servant. He humbled Himself, washing His disciples’ feet. He endured the suffering and humiliation of the cross. Because of this, Yahweh has seated Him at the right hand of power. He has given Yahshua the name that is above every other name.

There are many in this world who would seek a shortcut to promotion and elevation. Yahweh warns all who entertain such thoughts of the consequences. He has said that He will debase the proud and the mighty while showing much grace to the humble. The path to divine knowledge, to receiving the keys that unlock the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, is one of abasement and suffering. Joseph patiently endured years of suffering in Egypt while his brothers were living careless lives of pleasure. He received promotion, and was made privy to the counsels of heaven while they were not. It was given to Joseph to teach wisdom to the princes of Egypt for he was recognized as one upon whom a divine spirit rested (Psalm 105:16-22).

Don’t be deceived by Satan’s bait. He will promise fame, fortune, pleasure, and knowledge. Yet what tastes so sweet in the beginning will be exceedingly bitter in the end. In the blazing star on the forehead of the Patriot I see the mark of the beast. It is the mind given over to Satan.

Revelation 14:9-12
And another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or upon his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up to the age of the ages; and they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Yahshua.

We are approaching the end of this age. It is an hour where the saints of God must exercise much patience. Do not allow a desire for knowledge, fame, wealth, or any other thing to entice your heart as it did our forebears in the Garden. Do not look for a path to divine sonship that bypasses the cross. Satan will make a trophy out of you and parade you before the world, but the end will be a bitter one.

    Joseph, do you believe that the likes of Katy Perry or Lenny Kravitz had anything to do with the planning that goes into such an elaborate mass ritual such as was seen during Super Bowl halftime? Who is actually responsible for the vision we saw? By watching it are we not lending it power or participating in the mass ritual itself unwittingly? When these people perform their acts on the stage, are they aware of what they are promoting or are they just puppets for the spiritual forces that govern this present world?
    I know you don't want to dwell on this too much but I'm trying to wrap my head around how such things are brought about and what their effect on us is…
    Thanks for writing this!

  2. Joseph Herrin

    Hello Mark,

    The NFL is a multi-billion dollar organization. The planning that goes into a Super Bowl, and the television broadcast of the half-time show, is a major investment and enormous management task. It is the people with money, who control the corporations, who dictate what transpires. These are servants of Satan. The entertainers may, or may not, realize fully what is going on. I suspect some, like Madonna, understand the spiritual forces that are at work. Madonna has been a student of Kabbalah for many years.

    However, I believe others like Katy Perry have a lesser understanding of what is transpiring. They are just as guilty, for Katy Perry realizes she has made a deal with the devil. She is a pawn, albeit a willing one.

    I believe it is possible for a person to observe evil, and expose it, without being a participant in it.

    You see the same thing at work during the Olympics, the Grammy Awards, the World Cup Soccer Championships, etc.. It takes major planning from very high levels to budget and plan such things. Although I cannot tell you names, or provide job titles, it is apparent that there are individuals with control over the design, planning, and production who are servants of Satan.

    I don't want you to think I'm puffing up your humble head, but Joseph – you are amazing at putting the puzzle pieces together on events and relating the underlying messages coming from the spiritual forces. Your analysis here was a fruitful detour from your Hebrew Roots study (which is very helpful, too!). Keep up the great work, and we appreciate hearing from you on current events like this, in such a timely way while it's fresh. Thanks!

  4. Joseph Herrin

    Thanks Bruce. It was very kind of you to comment. I will try not to get the big head. Things are much easier to see in hindsight. I would not have wanted to venture a guess at half-time about who would win the game.

  5. Michael


    I've been thinking about the end of the game. It seems evident that the Seahawks would have defeated the Patriots, if they had given control to the beast (Marshawn Lynch). Inexplicably, they threw a pass that was intercepted by safety Malcolm Butler. Malcolm means "disciple of St. Columba," and Columba (or the latinized Columbia) is a name that is often used to refer symbolically to America, because of its historical connection to Christopher Columbus. The name Malcolm traces to 11th century Scotland, which hints at the Freemason roots of America. It strikes me as a prophetic picture of a coming "near death experience" for America. But the beast was betrayed. Interestingly, Marshawn Lynch rushed out of the stadium with hardly a word.

    What do you make of this strange ending to the game?

    Hi Joseph:

    The Lord has given you very accurate discernment and wisdom regarding the spiritual truth behind events that take place on planet earth. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord. I have one question though-how do you know so much information about withcraft and the demonic/occult enterprises? Were you once involved in it? Also, here is a link to show that Katy Perry Just tattooed her finger with the Superbowl numbers, making the comment "I think it would be appropriate to draw blood tonight" What a demonic statement. Although I know you write to expose the schemes and signposts of the enemy in the earth today, I also hope that you would be balanced to write about the things that God is doing in the earth today, not just what Satan is doing. We need to always keep our focus on Christ and on what He is doing in the nations of the earth as well as be warned of what Satan is up to at this point in history. Thank you for your humble and discerning heart. God is definitely using your ministry to open the eyes of believers whereas we would otherwise be unawares if not for God revealing the plans of the enemy to us. We also need to see what God is doing in this hour as well. Remember, in the end, if we stay true to Christ, we win.

    Thank you Brother Herrin for posting your insights regarding the Super Bowl. Last night, while watching the half time show, I was feeling a bit weird but couldn't put a finger on why, but you saw things that I was unable to perceive at the time. Thanks once again for honoring my request.

  8. Joseph Herrin

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for commenting. I am sure there is a great amount of additional significance to be gleaned from the game by those who take the time to scrutinize it. I did not watch the game, having only seen the half-time show on YouTube. At this time I am inclined to leave it to others who are interested to seek discernment on other aspects of the game. My desire was simply to share those things I observed relating to the date, choice of venue, and the half-time show.

    Because of other writings I am involved in, I am not going to delve into other aspects of the game at this time. I appreciate your understanding.

  9. Joseph Herrin

    Dear DSJoyfulBeliever,

    There is a note that appears whenever someone posts a comment stating that I would like all commenters to identify themselves to promote integrity, civility etc.. In the future please include your name when commenting.

    I have never been involved in witchcraft, or the occult. For that matter, I have never been involved in Freemasonry, Kabbalah, the Hebrew Roots Movement, or a lot of other things I write about. If you read the posts I have made on these various subjects you will observe that I do a prodigious amount of research when writing on such topics, and I have been at this for many years. That is the reason for my familiarity.

    I encourage you to read my other writings. You will find that I have 20 books posted on the Heart4God website. They are on a wide array of topics relating to Yahweh's kingdom and the instruction of His people in these last days. There are books on the Bride of Christ being a remnant of His body; the spiritual substance of the types and shadows of Sabbath rest, women's roles in Yahweh's governmental order, the spiritual substance of the mark of the beast, the ultimate reconciliation of all creation back to God through Christ, the three resurrections and what it means to be a spiritual firstborn son, the cost of discipleship, and even a foundational book that defines what salvation and the gospel of Christ are all about.

    If you will familiarize yourself with the many writings I have made publicly available, you will find that I give a great deal of attention to what God is doing.

    May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

    How ironic Katy chose the tatoo numbers of 49. Enjoy reading your work brother Joseph. Mark

  11. mrpeabody

    The owner of the Patriots football team is one Robert Kraft, and he sure is prosperous. Up in his deluxe suite he is famous for the guests he invites to come and watch the games; such shining points of light as Ozzie Osbourne, whose openly satanic songs, with his band Black Sabbath, were used at the start of the game when the Patriots were introduced to the roaring crowd.
    He also has Stephen Tyler the singer from Arrowsmith up there frequently, along with Donald Trump, and a whole very strange cadre of very famous people each week.
    Yes that's Mr Kraft with a K, who is no doubt a 33rd degree Freemason.
    It just goes on and on, but I agree with the comment above who says we need to keep our eyes on Jesus, not the devil.

    Dear Brother Herrin:

    My name is Dawn. When I checked off the option for Google account, my moniker came up instead of my name; it showed my name as Dawn when I wrote to you but apparently when it posted it used my moniker instead of my real name.

    Thank you so much for clarifying my questions regarding your extensive knowledge of the occult. Also, I was not aware of your other website Heart4God but I am excited to check it out and to read your other writings as you suggested. Interestingly, the Lord answered my prayer about what HE did at the Superbowl when a fellow believer told me today about a prophecy that was given concerning the Superbowl from God's perspective. I will try to find it and provide it to you as it was right on and very encouraging. One thing I remembered she said was that biblically 49 is the year of Jubilee and that the Lord said that in America in 2015 in the Hebrew year of Jubilee.The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014 / 2015 coincides with the beginning of the “Shemitah” as well a “Jubilee Year”… which begins this coming Yom Kippur. A Jubilee (50th) year comes after 7 sabbatical cycles of 7 years and is more amazing that a Jubilee convergence with the “Four Blood Moon” all happening together…! Many will be set free from bondages that have kept them from moving forward into their destiny in Him (Recurring bondages). There was so much more to it and I was excited to hear what the Lord did through the Superbowl at the same time the enemy was spewing out his evil plans. Have you read Jonathan Cahn's book on the Shemitah by any chance and Pastor John Hagee's book on the four blood moons? I haven't read them yet but bought them and was told they hold much prophetic significance for the season we are in and which is ahead. So even though the enemy is prowling about like a lion to devour the elect and we need to be warned and made aware of His shemes, equally I am excited for what the Lord is doing and is about to do in the nations of the earth, not just in terms of corrective judgements meant to turn people back to Himself, but for the last Great Awakening that is so desperately needed. I see that the falling away has begun and has been taking place for some time now but know that we draw closer every day to the fulfillment of the last days and the return of our Bridgegroom and beloved King, Jesus Christ to Jerusalem and the earth. (I am a Jewish believer in Jesus Christ who was saved by Him 25 years ago). Again, Brother Herrin thank you for your obedience to the Lord, your humility and purity to discern what is happening in the spiritual realm of Satan AND the Kingdom of our victorious Lord Jesus Christ.

    Hello Dawn,

    Thank you for commenting again and sharing your name. I am familiar with Jonathan Cahn's book "The Mystery of the Shemitah." I have a copy of it, and have read it. I have mentioned the Shemitah year in my blog on a number of occasions. You can use the search field at the upper right of the blog to find the posts. I am also familiar with the blood moons. I believe it was Mark Biltz who first brought the tetrads falling on Biblical Feast days to the attention of the public. You can also find a number of posts on the blood moons by searching in the field above.

    Your excitement regarding a final "Great Awakening" is commendable. It would be a great blessing to see a massive spiritual revival at the end of this age. However, I do not see such a revival mentioned in the Bible, nor do I perceive the Holy Spirit to be indicating that such is coming. What we read instead is:

    Many will fall away; many will be mislead; most people’s love will grow cold; men will be lovers of self, lovers of money; men will not endure sound doctrine; men will turn aside to myths and fables; Yahshua will in no way return unless the apostasy occurs first; will He find faith on the Earth?

    These are all direct quotations from the Scriptures regarding these last days. It is the remnant who will be saved. The character of coming days will be one of great darkness and powerful deception so that "if possible" even the elect might be deceived. Let us therefore hold fast to the anchor of our hope, and do not consider our lives as precious. We are told that the overcomers in Christ are those "who loved not their lives to the death."

    May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days,

    Hello Dawn,

    Thank you for commenting again and sharing your name. I am familiar with Jonathan Cahn's book "The Mystery of the Shemitah." I have a copy of it, and have read it. I have mentioned the Shemitah year in my blog on a number of occasions. You can use the search field at the upper right of the blog to find the posts. I am also familiar with the blood moons. I believe it was Mark Biltz who first brought the tetrads falling on Biblical Feast days to the attention of the public. You can also find a number of posts on the blood moons by searching in the field above.

    Your excitement regarding a final "Great Awakening" is commendable. It would be a great blessing to see a massive spiritual revival at the end of this age. However, I do not see such a revival mentioned in the Bible, nor do I perceive the Holy Spirit to be indicating that such is coming. What we read instead is:

    Many will fall away; many will be mislead; most people’s love will grow cold; men will be lovers of self, lovers of money; men will not endure sound doctrine; men will turn aside to myths and fables; Yahshua will in no way return unless the apostasy occurs first; will He find faith on the Earth?

    These are all direct quotations from the Scriptures regarding these last days. It is the remnant who will be saved. The character of coming days will be one of great darkness and powerful deception so that "if possible" even the elect might be deceived. Let us therefore hold fast to the anchor of our hope, and do not consider our lives as precious. We are told that the overcomers in Christ are those "who loved not their lives to the death."

    May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days,

    Shalom Joseph, as always, I found your comments very insightful. If I may, I would like to add a couple of my own thoughts from the game itself. As previously noted, this was the 49th Super Bowl and this seems to agree with the revelations that have been given through Jonathan Cahn as this is seemingly the seventh shemitah in the present Jubilee cycle. It is the Master of the Universe's prerogative to speak through the biggest event in sporting history, if that is in fact what He chooses to do – especially when the audience He is speaking to has mostly rejected hearing His voice via His Word and His prophets. Earlier this year you wrote a blog about expecting the unexpected. There were three seemingly unexpected events during the last minutes of the Super Bowl. First, there was the unexpected comeback of the AFC East team (the Patriots) over the NFC West team (the Seahawks) late in the fourth quarter. Could it be that the Eastern world will rise and the Western world will fall at the end of this present Jubilee cycle? Second, there was a seemingly improbable and even "miraculous" play that seemingly helped the NFC West's comeback when the player for the Seahawk's caught the deflected ball while lying flat on his back. Could it be that the Western world is about to hit the reset button on the world's economy that will seemingly "miraculously" "save" the West's economy? Third, on the final play of the Seahawk's final drive the West made a seemingly "foolish" move. In their zeal to trick their opponent they took a chance on a risky play which ultimately ended in dismal failure when a virtually unknown and undrafted player rose to instant international prominence and heroic status, of all those cheering for the Patriots, when he intercepted the ball and helped to clinch the East's victory over the West. Could it be that the West's "trick" reset will end in dismal failure and that a virtually unknown international figure will arise out of obscurity and into international prominence? Yahweh very well may have spoken at Super Bowl 49. Was anybody listening? Shalom, shalom, Robert McDuffie

    Just as a reminder:
    The use of the number seven by the Lord is
    no secret. It is the Bible that establishes the cycle of seven days in a week, with the seventh day being the Sabbath rest as a memorial for the people to never forget that He created everything in six days and then rested on the seventh day. Then he establishes seven times seven years as the Jubilee cycle. And the Jubilee of Jubilees being 490 years, is perhaps the most repeated theme in the Bible regarding time frames. (70 times 7 years)
    From the birth of Shem to Isaac: 490 years.
    From Isaac to the Exodus: 490 years
    from the Exodus to the dedication of Soloman's temple: 490 years.
    From the dedication of the temple to the Persian decree to rebuild the temple: 490 years.
    From the rebuilt temple to Messiah the Prince: 490 years.
    From the death of Messiah the Prince (33AD) to the rebirth of the nation of Israel is 1948 years, is the well known "Times of the Gentiles" or the "Christian era".
    _From the rebirth if Israel to 2018 will be 70 years or one "week" ala Daniel's prophesy.
    Thus the final "week" of Daniels prophesy, otherwise known as the Great Tribulation COULD BE a seven year span beginning in 2018, and ending with the second coming of Christ in 2025.
    Just saying'…

    Hello Dawn,

    I chose to not post your comment with the link to the Super Bowl prophecy as there was a great deal in the prophecy that I believe is false. The author (Lance Walnau) appears to be a Kim Clement fan. Kim Clement is a false prophet who has been deceiving people for years. Lance's prophetic observations appear to be much along the line of Kim Clement's. For example, he derives the following insight from the Super Bowl commercials.

    2. HUMOR IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORM OF MARKETING. (Stop being grumpy when you preach)
    3. CARS, CARS AND SOME TRUCKS! All are prophetic symbols of ministry vehicles. GET READY FOR GOD TO GIVE YOU A NEW VEHICLE FOR YOUR MESSAGE!

    For many of these "prophets," their words are always that blessing is coming. The admonition to stop being grumpy when preaching is straight out of the Joel Osteen playbook. In an hour of abominations and spiritual darkness, I believe we will be better served with an Elijah or John the Baptist who is calling out the sinners and preaching repentance, than to have more of the ilk of Joel Osteen and Kim Clement.

    Hi Brother Herrin, This is Dawn.
    I am not offended by your choice not to post Lance Walnau's email.
    I want to walk in truth and am seeking the Lord. I know that dark days are coming and that the falling away is taking place. I certainly do not want to be deceived in this crucial hour. Truthfully, I do not read a lot of prophecies but stick to the bible and the Holy Spirit. I thank you for your discernment and pray that I will be more discerning in the future as well.

    Hi Brother Herrin, this is Dawn again. My friend Michelle wrote and prayed the following prayer in response to the article on the Superbowl. I prayed the prayer tonight and wanted to share it with you because I think it is a good thing to do. This will be the last thing I send or comment on for this article Here it is:

    As I read this article, I began to understand many things about the “false light” of Satan and the “marvelous light” of Yeshua.

    Father, I pray right now in Yeshua’s name. I apply the Blood of the Lamb of God to those in our families who are being drawn to the false Luciferion light, the beauty that turns the focus to self through all the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life, and I declare our family members who are following that false light be awakened to the truth as Your Blood, Yeshua, is applied to them right now. May these family members be severed from any soul ties to freemasonry and the false light. May ministering angels be at their sides even now ministering to them the Light of Yeshua and the hunger for truth. May God’s angels protect them and warring angels surround them and encamp with them. May resurrection life fill them as they come out of the darkness into the true marvelous light of Yeshua. May their destiny in Yeshua be resurrected and may they walk in the way of righteousness.

    May any residue from the generations of our families who walked in the false light of Lucifer and freemasonry and witchcraft be washed away from us as the Blood of the Lamb of God, Yeshua, is applied to us. May the spirit and atmosphere of true light and liberty fill us and surround us in YESHUA’s name. The statue of liberty is a false liberty, but the liberty bell is the true sound of liberty. The liberty bell is cracked and true liberty comes out of our brokenness before God. Lord, Adonai, Messiah Yeshua, only speak the Word over our misled relatives and over any residue upon us from these and generations past and we will walk in new liberty that is true and the true marvelous light of Yeshua, the Bright and Morning Star.

    in Yeshua’s name and by His Blood,

    Michele Rousseau

    Hello Dawn,

    I believe you and Michelle would find profit in reading the post on this blog titled "Who Cracked the Liberty Bell." You can find it by doing a search in the field provided for this purpose at the upper right side of the blog. I also would recommend to you the book titled "Dragon Flood." It is freely available to be read, printed, or downloaded from the Heart4God website on the Book page.

    May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days,

    Hi Brother Herrin:

    I cannot thank you enough for your recommendations regarding the Liberty Bell Article and the Dragon Flood book. I intend to read all of it prayerfully and so will my friend Michelle. I have no prior knowledge of the Liberty Bell and it's true prophetic significance but Michelle must have read something about it that caused her to write what she wrote concerning it. I do believe that this nation was founded in rebellion because when you compare the emancipation of America in the revolutionary war with how the Lord had Moses ask Pharoah to let his jewish people go, Moses did not rebel and only left Egypt after the Lord made the way for him to do so with the consent of Pharoah. I really seek for truth and want to discard any error that I may have believed that is not from the Lord. I am now diligently seeking the Lord for His truth concerning the last days and anything that I may have been taught in church that might not be an accurate truth. I have been saved 25 years and have an open and teachable spirit and am still growing in the Lord. Thank you for your kindness and patience with my questions and submittals. May the Lord continue to bless you in all that you do.
