The Darkness Draws Nearer – Part One

by | Mar 25, 2013

Joseph Herrin (03-25-2013)

I hardly know where to begin. Events occurring in the world reveal that darkness is everywhere advancing. Satan’s servants are making final preparations. A New World Order led by diabolical men and women who are disciples of Lucifer is rising. The progress of the approaching darkness finds a visible parallel in the rise of One World Trade Center in New York City.

One World Trade Center Progress

The entire complex where the tower resides is called the World Trade Center. The individual buildings are referenced by numbers. This tallest of the towers at the World Trade Center in Manhattan is referred to as One World Trade Center. It has already reached the apex of its habitable height as the top floor of the tower was put in place a few months ago. It topped out at 1,368 feet high. For the past few months construction has been going on apace on the communications tower that will rise a further 408 feet from the roof of this structure bringing the overall building height to 1,776 feet.

As in all things occult, a false, but seemingly credible, explanation is provided for the details of any symbol. The true meaning is hidden from the non-initiate. It is stated that the overall height of the tower was chosen as a reference to the year in which America’s Declaration of Independence was signed. There is some truth here, but if the observer has bought into the Satanic lies regarding America’s founding, and has accepted the delusion that America’s founding fathers were a group of Christian men who were seeking to establish a Christian nation, then Satan’s work of delusion has accomplished its purpose. Believing that America was founded as a Christian nation is akin to believing that the Jesuits are in fact a Society of Jesus.

I will not belabor the point by sharing the truth of America’s Masonic founding, or the anti-Christ views of men like Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and others. For those interested in a true history of America, I recommend the recently posted book titled Dragon Flood. The truth will set you free from delusion.

The height of the building also corresponds to the year in which the Bavarian Illuminati was formed by Adam Weishaupt. The marks of the Illuminati, the servants of Satan, are found in profusion upon the One World Trade Center tower and the grounds throughout the complex.

I am persuaded that the progress of One World Trade Center has been planned by Satan and his servants to coincide with their plans for bringing forth a New World Order. The phrase New World Order is itself deceptive, for it is in truth a very old world order. In fact, what is being constructed by Satan finds its parallel in the first, and most prominent, tower construction made mention of in the Bible. Satan is seeking to re-establish Babylon on the earth, whose initial manifestation was observed in the construction of the Tower of Babel under the reign of Nimrod.

Artist’s Depiction of the Tower of Babel

Genesis 11:1-4
Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words. And it came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name…”

The phrase “a tower whose top will reach into heaven” is befitting a description of One World Trade Center. A recent post on the UK newspaper Daily Mail showed images of this tower at night with its top and growing spire poking through the clouds above Manhattan.

One World Trade Center at Night


I will repeat here a portion of a post on this highly symbolic tower, for the tower serves as a Luciferian announcement of the hour we are now living in and the things that his disciples are accomplishing. I will add some additional comments to this previously published information.

Satan was the chief architect of the Tower of Babel. He is the one Freemasons refer to as The Great Architect of the Universe. The universal image Satan has chosen to display his rule over mankind is found on the Great Seal of America. It is observed on the back of the one dollar bill. It too is a tower of great construction.

Great Seal of the United States of America

This image is based upon the Great Pyramid in Egypt. The Great Pyramid is missing its capstone. In Freemasonry and other esoteric groups, the various layers of the pyramid represent the initiates into a secret order. The higher up one goes, the more aware they are of the true mind (the “mysteries”) of Satan. Albert Pike, former Grandmaster of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in America declared that to the brothers of the 30th degree and above it could be disclosed that their doctrines are in fact “Luciferian…”

The capstone can only be set upon the pyramid when all men have come under the rule of Satan. I recently came across a video showing a new commercial advertising The History Channel. This video is cunningly devised to both hide and reveal the fact that History has been “manufactured” by the Illuminati, and sold to the world. Watch the video that follows, looking intently at the symbolism, especially the pyramid with the detached capstone.

Even as the smokestack poured forth clouds of these Illuminati pyramid symbols, so too has the world been overshadowed with the poured out lies of Satan.

I John 5:19
We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

Revelation 12:9
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world…

Don’t be deceived by concluding that you have not been subject to the lies of Satan. They are all around you. They fill the very atmosphere in which you walk and breathe. You cannot watch the evening news, read a newspaper, watch a television show, listen to a radio broadcast, read a magazine or book, or engage in a conversation with other members of this fallen world without encountering the lies and deception of the great deceiver “who deceives the whole world.”

The earth is entering a time when the rule of Satan must once again come to its fullness upon the earth. Yahshua said that before His return the world would resemble the days of Noah. One characteristic of Noah’s day was nearly universal deception and wickedness.

Genesis 6:5
Then Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Though Satan’s emissaries cloak their actions in words of benevolence and righteousness, underneath is the true heart of their master. Satan comes only to kill, steal, and destroy. He is not, and never has been, the friend of mankind. The tower being built in New York serves as a symbol of the rising of Satan’s kingdom over the earth. It has been called “Freedom Tower,” but Satan comes only to enslave mankind. It is Christ who came to set men free.

On the Great Seal of the United States the capstone is pictured as an all seeing eye with rays of light radiating out from it. This bears a two-fold meaning. Satan claims to have all wisdom, to understand all mysteries, and to be able to pierce all darkness. He would like to portray himself as a being to whom nothing is hidden. Secondly, he would portray himself as a source of light to mankind. Satan is depicted as Prometheus, whose statue is set in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.

Prometheus Bringing Fire to Mankind

Those who understand the mysteries of the Luciferian doctrines know that Satan would cast himself in the light of the friend of man when he tempted Adam and Eve to eat of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Albert Pike said that it is Jehovah who is the evil god, depicting Yahweh’s judgment upon Satan by casting him out of heaven as cruel and unjust. Lucifer is presented by his disciples as the friend of man, bringing light to the world.

The statue of Prometheus bringing fire down from heaven and giving it to mankind, is one of the most evident pieces of art found on the Rockefeller Center complex. It is a re-telling of the story of Lucifer who offered to mankind forbidden knowledge. An Internet website shares the following commentary on this statue found on the Rockefeller property.

This statue depicts Prometheus, a Titan of Greek mythology known for his great intelligence. He has however betrayed the god Zeus by stealing fire and giving it to mankind. He is credited to have taught mankind the arts of civilization such as writing, mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and science. Zeus then punished Prometheus for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.

Paul Manship’s sculpture featured in the Sunken Plaza of the Rockefeller Center portrays Prometheus holding the fire stolen from Zeus and gliding towards humanity. He lies inside a ring in which are outlined the signs of the Zodiac. Behind the statue is an inscription saying:

“Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends.”

Substitute the name Prometheus for Lucifer, and you will perceive the true substance of this monument. Lucifer was judged by God, not for a benevolent act on behalf of mankind. Lucifer’s fall actually occurred prior to Adam and Eve’s residency in Eden. It is described by the prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 14:12-14
“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! 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.’”

Satan is seeking to sell an image of himself as a benevolent friend to mankind. No doubt this is why Yahshua was so blunt in speaking the truth about this angelic rebel.

John 8:44
“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.”

 John 10:10
“The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy…

I had recently been seeing advertisements for a new movie that is now out on DVD that is titled Prometheus. Knowing that Prometheus is an occult personification of the image Satan has created for himself, a heavenly being who was horribly and unrighteously judged by the god of heaven for a gift to mankind, I found the timing of this movie’s release interesting. I wanted to find out a bit more about it and came across the following short video that was released as a promo for the movie. As you watch it, bear the following in mind:

Peter Weyland, the super wealthy industrialist and businessman speaking, is a type of those corporate masters today who are enthralled with Lucifer. They have become Lucifer’s champions, and Yahshua’s enemies. Pride and deceit are their cloak. Peter Weyland ends this short diatribe by declaring, “If you will indulge me, I would like to change the world.” This is precisely the attitude of that cabal of the world’s super wealthy who are seeking to bring forth a New World Order.

In one part of the movie, a much older Peter Weyland addresses the crew of the space ship named Prometheus who have been sent out to make contact with the “gods” who seeded life on Earth. He speaks the following words.

The Titan Prometheus wanted to give mankind equal footing with the gods. For that, he was cast from Olympus. Well, my friends, the time has finally come for his return.

Once more, substitute the name Lucifer, or Satan, for Prometheus, and you will understand better the hour in which you live. (In the movie the first image of the captain of the ship Prometheus shows him adorning a small Christmas tree after having awakened from a two year sleep during their journey. This scene is a senseless anomaly, unless you understand the link between Prometheus/Lucifer and the Christmas tree. I recommend the following post to you and pray that you will never again set up a Christmas tree in your home.)

Realize that Satan firmly controls Hollywood. He uses the movies as a channel to broadcast his words and thoughts to mankind. Through the movie Prometheus Satan is announcing that the time is at hand for his ascension. This is the meaning of the images of the Phoenix rising from the fire that have been displayed at a recent Super Bowl half-time show, and during the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.


Let us return to the symbolism of the One World Trade Tower.

On the top of One World Trade Center an unusual, but highly symbolic, device will be placed. A spire will rise from the roof of the building. This spire is being constructed at this very moment and will reach its final height in a few weeks.

One World Trade Center Spire Under Construction

Toward the top of the spire will be a light that will be lit at night. It will be an exceptionally brilliant light, drawing all eyes to its splendor. It is a perfect parallel to the light coming from the top of the pyramid on the Great Seal of America. It will serve as a symbol of Lucifer being the “Light Bringer” to all mankind.

I would add here another example of Satan’s deceit. Underneath the grounds of the World Trade Center a massive transportation hub is being built. The entrance to this subterranean portal is being called “the Oculus.” Oculus is the Latin word for “eye.” The reason that this hub has been given this name is apparent from the following recent image.

Oculus Under Construction

Note the eye shape of the opening to this portal. Eye’s have previously served as symbols at this location. The all seeing eye atop the pyramid on the Great Seal is modeled after the Eye of Horus. Horus was an ancient Egyptian deity, part of the Satanic trinity of Isis, Horus, and Seb.

During the early days of construction of the tower a service was held in which the Eye of Horus was formed on the grounds of this complex. Men marching in formation became the medium by which Satan drew this symbol upon the ground.

Eye of Horus Dedication Ceremony

Note also that the location of the World Trade Center has become known as “Ground Zero.” The men in the video are marching around a circle, which is the symbol for “zero.” Alexander Hislop in the book The Two Babylons includes the following note on the ancient meaning of zero.

In our own language we have evidence that Zero had signified a circle among the Chaldeans; for what is Zero, the name of the cypher, but just a circle?… Zero in this sense had evidently come from the Chaldee zer, “to encompass…” As he who by the Chaldeans was regarded as the great “Seed,” was looked upon as the Sun incarnate, and as the emblem of the Sun was a circle, the hieroglyphical relation between zero, “the circle,” and zero, “the seed” was easily established.
[Page 18]

Alexander Hislop provides much more information on the name Zero, showing it to be the root from which the pagan Zoroaster is derived. Hislop goes on to write:

Zoroaster was an Assyrian or Chaldean and he was the founder of the idolatrous system of Babylon, and therefore Nimrod.
[Page 59]

Hislop provides much historical evidence in his book that Nimrod was the originator of the Babylonian mystery religions. This religion was antithetical to the worship of Yahweh, for it held Lucifer, in various guises, as the principle deity of its worship. The Scriptures declare that Nimrod was the founder of Babel, the site of the ancient tower of Babel.

Genesis 10:8, 10
Now Cush became the father of Nimrod; he became a mighty one on the earth… The beginning of his kingdom was Babel…

Hislop shows that Nimrod was worshiped as Zoroaster whose symbol was a circle. In an ancient foreshadowing of this present hour, Nimrod served as Satan’s emissary on the earth. Nimrod was the Beast, and Satan the Dragon. “That which has been is that which will be. There is nothing new under the Sun.”

Revelation 13:3-6
And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; and they worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” And there was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies; and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.

People of God, the words recorded by John above are very soon to be fulfilled. We are seeing a rising arrogance among world leaders, including America’s leaders, toward Yahshua and the righteousness revealed in the Bible. Christian belief is being expunged from society. Soon there will be open persecution of all those who stand in truth and who promote righteousness. The tabernacle of God is His people. These are the true disciples of Yahshua who are seated in the heavens at the right hand of the Father. Satan and his disciples will speak blasphemous things against them. You need to be prepared to stand firm in the approaching hour.

Revelation 12:11
“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death.”

By placing the symbol of the Zero at Ground Zero (as seen in the video above), and building this occult tower with all of its inherent symbolism, Satan is announcing the rebuilding of Babel, a world kingdom where all men are united under his rule through the governance of his appointed human emissaries.

Returning to the Oculus, it should be noted that this “eye” is literally a portal to the underworld. This is the dragon’s eye, an entrance to the dragon’s lair. Contained in this transportation hub will be access to 13 subway rail lines. (See link)

The number 13 is specifically linked to Satan in the Scriptures.

As to the significance of thirteen, all are aware that it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them…

We must go back to the first occurrence of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance. It occurs first in Gen 14:4, where we read “Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they REBELLED.”

Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea.
[Source: E.W. Bullinger, Number in Scripture]

It requires 13 witches to convene a coven. Witches perform their rites within a circle drawn in the earth. Here, at Ground Zero, there will be a circular form permanently inscribed in the earth. It will lead to 13 subway lines. What is being constructed is far more than a transportation hub. It will be a hub to disseminate Satanic influence throughout the world.

This Satanic eye is to be disguised as a heavenly dove on its surface. The ocular hole in the ground is to be covered with an immense steel framework whose designer intended to evoke images of a dove being released into flight.

Oculus Above Ground Design

This is one more example of Satan’s cunning. Yahshua testified that Satan is a murderer, and that he comes ONLY to kill steal and destroy. Satan is also the great deceiver that deceives the whole world. He has sold the world an image of his servants as peacemakers (Remember Barack Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for no apparent reason?) when they are in fact the enemies of peace. The world is deceived as they follow after the disciples of Satan who wage wars for peace, and slaughter millions in the name of preserving freedom. How fitting to have the dragon’s eye that leads to the underworld masked by an image of a white dove of peace!

This subway station has been under construction since 2005, and is slated to be opened to service in 2015. Satan has timed the progress of this monument to coincide with his work of bringing all mankind under his rule. Day after day we are seeing evidence of darkness increasing. The plans of Satan are advancing to once again establish his rule over all the earth. Babylon is rising. The days are growing darker. Sin and wickedness are increasing. Yet Christ will shine brightly in the coming hour through a remnant of His people who have given their lives to follow Him wholly.

Isaiah 60:1-2
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but Yahweh will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you.”

To Be Continued…

    We are so blessed to live during a time of so much biblical significance. Come Swiftly Lord Jesus.

    Thank you so much for all you do Pastor Herrin.

  2. Marcel

    And in all of this the Church is AWOL,asleep or in bed with the Beast and the dragon.
    For the sake of compromise with this evil world the salt has lost it savor and has been replaced with sugar,the light on a hill has been replaced by the neon lights of worldly,flesh led entertainment.
    There is a famine of the truth in the land,even in the Church as it is declared offensive and intolerant to the hell bound.

    Thank God He has His remnant who are not afraid to expose the evil works of darkness and be offensive to the wicked instead of making them feel good in their wickedness.

    Great post Joseph! Thank you so much. When you mentioned the O or zero, it made me think of the President who, is referred to by many as "O" and by, some as "zero".
