the Name, the Mark & the Number
3: Taking the Number
Research into the Hebrew Roots & Messianic movements
constitutes research into Judaism as well as the occult. We
fully respect each persons right to believe or utilize what
resources they choose. We however, see a clear distinction in
believing the Messiah has come versus utilizing resources
which still await His coming. That is how and why we must
evaluate all to Christ and the New Testament as well as the
Tenach. We do not wish to edit or criticize Judaism, but
recognize it as distinct from our Christian beliefs, just as
many in Judaism also see a distinction and separateness from
our beliefs, and we jointly have mutual respect for our
differences and each other.
wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is
pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee,
understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the
way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward
things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the
ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil and delight in
the frowardness of the wicked"
Number of the Beast
years there have been many "false" identifications
of the Anti-christ or Beast, from Nero to Hitler. There has
been speculation recently as to the number of the Beast is and
how it relates to the mark. Is there a good reason for this
confusion? In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, we have seen that
the new Bible translations have altered the words and meanings
of verses pertaining to prophecy, with devastating results. As
we consider the application of the Name, Mark and Number of
the Beast, we note that Revelation 13:17-18 have also been
altered in the new versions.
In the KJB
"And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had
the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his
name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count
the number of the beast: for it is the number of a
man; and his number is Six hundred
threescore and six."
In the NIV
" So that no one could buy or sell, unless he had the
mark, which is the name of the beast, or the
number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone
has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for
it is man's number. His number is 666."
In the New
Revised Standard "So that no one can buy or sell, who
does not have the mark, that is, the name of the
beast, or the number of is name." This calls for
wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number
of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number
is six hundred sixty-six."
We know that
God alone can supply what is needed to comprehend the meaning
of His Word and these verses in particular. Referring to
wisdom, Proverbs 2:4-6 promises:
thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid
treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord,
and find the knowledge of God. "For the Lord giveth
wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and
" 'count' the number of the beast",
is of interest because, according to Strong's Concordance,
this particular definition applies only to this verse of
psephizo, (psay-fid-zo); from 5586: to use
pebbles in enumeration, i.e.(gen.) to compute:--count
(psay-fos); from the same as 5584; a pebble
(as worn smooth by handling), i.e. (by impl. of use as a
counter or ballot) a verdict (of acquital) or ticket
(of admission); a vote:--stone, voice.
--pselaphao (psay-laf-ah-o) . . . (comp. 5586); to
manipulate, i.e. verify by contact; to search
for:--feel after, handle, touch.
definitions it would appear we are to search for and verify
the meaning through counting or computing or adding together
the digits which relate to "a man's number,"--- that
number being "six hundred threescore and six." Why
does the King James Bible write the number as six hundred,
threescore and six, when other versions write the number as
being 666? To determine this, we will be computing and
verifying the factors which must be considered.
Greek Dictionary reveals the numerical definition for
"six" is used for all verses in the New Testament (eg.,
Mark 9:2 and John 2:20) except for two verses, Rev.14:20 and
1803 . . .
hex..--a prim. numeral; six--six.
Judgment in Revelation 14:20 has the only verse definition
related to it's particular "six hundred". "And
the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out
of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of
a thousand and six hundred furlongs."
hexakosioi (hex-ak-os'-ee-oy) plur. ordinal from 1803
and 1540; six hundred-six hundred [Note:
ordinal number is a number that shows order or position in a
series. First, second, third,etc . . .]
--hex--, a prim. numeral; six---six.
( hek-at-on) of uncertain affin; a hundred---hundred
definition that is related for "six hundred threescore
and six" in Revelation 13:18 is also unique. It does not
connect to any "six" numbers in any other verses in
the New Testament. The fact that the definition for "six
hundred threescore and six" uses the Greek Alphabet
rather than the numerical "six" used in other verses
helps one understand that these are not simply numbers, as the
newer versions state i.e. 666., although that is the actual

a special mark burned on a slave or criminal
definitions give greater credence to the application of the
Mark via tattooing or branding. As we have seen, the
Dictionary definition of "tattoo" is " . . .
mark (the skin) with designs or patterns by pricking it and
putting in colors . . . " and we learned in Part 2 that
tattooing and branding are related. Historically, people have,
"use[d] tattooing and scarification to indicate social
rank and affiliation" and " . . . primarily as proof
skin with a "stick" or "prick," is
precisely how tattoos are applied. When we consider the
combination of these word meanings, "a scratch or
etching, i.e. stamp (as a badge of servitude)" which is
thought "to indicate rank" but is really a
"sign of disgrace," the true end-time scenario
begins to emerge. Perhaps the "computer chip"
propaganda has been disseminated to mislead the masses, who
will believe that by avoiding the same they are free to
receive God's special mark, which is really an occult symbol
of blasphemy and disgrace. Or perhaps the
"stick" or "prick" really does mean using
a needle to insert a micro-chip. Time will tell.
following excerpt from the May 1999 newsletter "Yavoh is
Coming", whose editor is
Monte Judah, is a good example
of such disinformation.
by the way, did I mention that God intends to do something
really special with about 144,000 Sons of Israel during the
Great Tribulation. You will note that it is not 144,000 Jews
that are to be called. Jews are considered to be the tribes
of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi. The other nine tribes are
called the House of Israel. Therefore, the 144,000 are
called "Sons of Israel," not Jews. I heartedly
recommend that all believers in these days find out who you
are and who you believe in. I am afraid there will be a
whole bunch of folks meeting Gabriel face-to-face, getting
the seal in their foreheads and being very confused. Many
will say, "But, I'm not a Jew." And we will have
to explain that they are of
Ephraim and that they have been
joined together with Jews to become one in the hand of the
Lord. The day sequence of their sealing will determine which
tribe they are representing." 3.
disgrace could there be than worshiping and taking the mark,
name and number of the anti-christ -- the ultimate blasphemy,
totally rejecting God for Satan? Through Scripture we know
that the anti-Christ will be steeped in the occult and
blasphemy. Daniel 11:36-39 reminds us:
. . and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above
every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the
God of gods, . . . Neither shall he regard the God of his
fathers . . .for he shall magnify himself above all. But
in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god
whom his fathers knew not . . . "
history, certain occult symbols and words have always been
identified with disgrace. A recent example would be Hitler's
coercion of the Jewish people to wear the six-pointed star or
hexagram, one of the most wicked of occult symbols. "Talismans
and Masters of the Name" included information about
the occult Star of David, which was confirmed through many
sources. This report sources an online promotion of the
Star of David
. all evidence suggests that the early use of the hexagram
was limited to 'practical kabbalah,'
that is, Jewish
magic, probably dating back to the 6th century C.E.
Legends connect this symbol with the "Seal of
Solomon," the magical signet ring used by King Solomon
to control demons and spirits. Although the original ring
was inscribed with the Tetragrammaton, the sacred
Four-Letter Name of God, medieval amulets imitating this
ring substituted the hexagram or pentagram. . . " 4. http://users.aol.com/tbstudy/12.htm
Six~Pointed Star" report explained that the 'star' or
hexagram and the numeral 666 are part of occult initiation
practices. A good explanation as to why the term "six
hundred threescore and six" was used as "his
number," instead of simply writing, 666 was provided by
occultist Alice Bailey in her book, The Rays &
an ancient book on numbers the INITIATE is defined as 'the
one who has experienced and expressed 666 and found it
naught; who has dropped the 6 and become the 66, and thus
found himself on the Way; later, again, he drops the 6 and
becomes the PERFECTED 6-FORM, the instrument and expression
of spirit." 5.
hexagram, which is used in the mystery religions, and the
significance of "six", is further revealed in
astrology to be the god, Saturn. Remember that in astrology,
the planets are considered to be gods.
Aurobindo, a Hindu guru well-known in the New Age affirms
that SATURN IS REPRESENTED BY THE NUMBER 6. . . because the
planet Saturn is 6th of the nine planets in distance from
the sun." (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 68) 6.
Two Babylons explains the occult numerology of Saturn:
the name SATURN in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as
every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters,
thus - Stur [ed. Star?]. This name contains exactly the
Apocalyptic number." (Hislop, p. 269) 7.
Saturn, and the number 6 are found on the Talisman
of Saturn which has the six-pointed star on one side and
the pentagram on the other.
the first face is engraved . . . a pentagram or a star with
five points. On the other side is engraved a bull's head
enclosed in a SIX-POINTED STAR, and surrounded by letters
composing the name REMPHA, THE PLANETARY GENIUS OF SATURN,
according to the alphabet of the Magi." (Christian, p.
precisely the false god mentioned by the first martyr,
Stephen, in his sermon to the Council of Jewish leaders and
earlier by the prophet, Amos:
7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the
STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship
them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. (KJV)
5:26-27 But ye have born the tabernacle of your
Moloch, and Chiun (Remphan) your images, the STAR OF YOUR
GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause
you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord . .
Strong's Concordance 4481
identifies Chiun as Rhemphan, "the name of an idol
worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the
the newer Bible versions have not only corrupted important
verses in Revelation relating to the Mark and the Name, but
also these verses which identify the heathen god (Chiun,
Rempha, Saturn) that was worshipped by the disobedient
Israelites. Note the omission of the name of this god in the
New American Standard and New International Versions, but not
the King James Bible.
KJV - But
ye have born the tabernacle of your MOLOCH
and CHIUN (Saturn), your images, the star
of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I
cause you to go into CAPTIVITY beyond Damascus. . .
See REMPHAN. Another name for the god SATURN. Strong's
Concordance p. 194: 3594 Chiun = "an image" or
"pillar" 1) probably a statue of the
Assyrian-Babylonian god of the planet Saturn and used to
symbolise Israelite apostasy.]
NASV - You
also carried along SIKKUTH your King and Kiyyn, your images,
the star of your gods which you made for yourselves.
Therefore I will make you go into EXILE beyond Damascus. . .
NIV - You
have lifted up the shrine of your king, the pedestal of your
idols, the star of your god which you made for yourselves.
Therefore I will send you into EXILE beyond Damascus. . .

also misidentify Satan as the Morning Star, a title that is
reserved for Jesus Christ in Revelation 22:16.

may be surprised to learn that August 7, 1999, is the date New
Agers began the Matrix Project Worldwide, in preparation for
the August 11 Solar Eclipse which inaugurates the anticipated
Dawn of the New Light. Matrix is a word in Crystal
Magick that refers to the base of a crystal cluster, the main
'lump' part. [Glossary; DenElder]
The Matrix Project is
calling for a critical mass of people who will focus on the
Star of David in preparation for the worldwide transformation
to occur in approximately nine months. Note the clever
ruse of claiming this activity will deter the occult agenda of
the "illuminati" when, in very fact, it is aligned
is a Worldwide notice requesting the assistance of every
Spiritual, Religious, Healing and Alternative World Healing
Organizations to open to all their respective members.
On the 11th of August, 1999 in Egypt, The
organization called the "illuminati" will be
invoking a ceremony called: THE DARK MOTHER. The intention
of this ceremony is to seal the doorway to our collective
consciousness as it begins to open. The reason they wish to
have this outcome, is that this organization represents the
power brokers of our planet, who would prefer to maintain
their control of the knowledge, finances and
spiritual/political future of our societies. This control is
through FEAR and misinformation.
Medicine people and tribal people around
the world are asking for your help to focus our collective
intention to keep this doorway to change opened. The
porthole to our changing consciousness is about to open.
This is the time that the WISDOM ELDERS have spoken of. We
are in the threshold of the forces of CREATION. WE have the
ability to exercise a CHOICE AT THIS TIME. We are focusing
the symbol identified in this Web Site: http://sites.netscape.net/hornbyhealing/homepage
All people are asked to start focusing
this symbol from your location with the following
intention:: ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ENTIRE EARTH
COMMUNITY - OR LOSE IT! It is through the acceptance
of our DIFFERENCES, spiritual, religious, political, ethnic,
geographic, and economic, that we will be able to overcome
and change the chaos that surrounds us.
Our focus will begin: AUG. 7th, 1999
until 14th Aug. 1999.

sentences, meaning the deep things of Satan. (Rev.2:24), and
will promote craft, meaning witchcraft. Freemasonry is called
The Craft by its members. All modern versions, however,
change the word "craft" to "deceit"
thereby omitting a specific reference to the occult.

some understanding of the occult initiations, we can begin to
understand why the Beast will require that his mark, name or
number be tattooed or branded in the forehead or right hand.
"In the mystery religions, both the forehead and hands
were tattooed during the initiation rites. (Reason for Dagon's
hands and head cut off)
Mithraism: "INITIATION was performed by two
dignitaries, who possessed the title of Father and Herald.
After the ceremony (the initiate) would be considered the
brother. . . of the other initiates and the son of the
Father. . . In order to be recognized by the Father, he has
to be TATOOED, in other words, BRANDED ON BOTH HANDS. . . On
portraits of emperors, these TATOO MARKS are clearly
visible, but ON THE FOREHEAD, IN PLACE OF THE HANDS." (Vermaseren,
p. 131) 14.
gnostics believe the body is evil, Alice Bailey's reference to
the removal of sixes from 666 (footnote #5) may refer be a
literal application of Matthew 5:30. "If thy right
hand offend thee, cut it off and cast it from thee: for it is
profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and
not that thy whole body should be cast into hell."
Henri-Paul Eydoux writes in "Facts and Enigmas in
Archaeology" that Mithraism, the ancient equivalent
of modern Freemasonry, might have replaced Christianity-- --
except for the vigilance of the early Church Fathers who
established the canon of Scripture and codified fundamental
doctrines in the creeds.
Mithraic faith originated in the vicinity of Iran and is
closely related to Zoroastrianism. The Roman legions. .
.ardently spread it . . . there was a true affinity between
the military spirit and that of this religion, which
preached exertion and demanded great courage and real
physical trials for initiation, which was reserved solely
for men. It also advocated an organized hierarchy and strict
discipline. A salutary and perfectly moral religion,
Mithraism spread with extraordinary vigor . . . Renan's
famous phrase has often been quoted," If Christianity
had been checked in its growth by a fatal disease, the world
would have become Mithraic." The initiates were grouped
into fraternities, with initiation rites which have been
compared with those of the Freemasons." 15.
we read of the six-pointed star that is reported to be
appearing on New Agers who have already accepted the
"mark" as part of their initiation ceremonies.
growing number of New Agers HAVE ALREADY UNDERGONE AN
INITIATION CEREMONY AND ACCEPTED THE MARK. They almost
universally report that although they approach the ceremony
with dread and foreboding, after it is over. . . 'I
discovered that the LINES ON THE PALM OF MY RIGHT HAND HAD
BEEN ALTERED, and a portion of them now FORMED A SIX-POINTED
STAR about an inch in circumference. . . (Marrs: Mystery
Mark, p. 39)" 16.
We have seen
how "Christian" youth believe that tattooing sets
them apart as 'special' or chosen by God for a unique purpose
and how the mainstreaming of tattooing and branding is taking
place world-wide. The practice of "branding" all
emails with the name of Yeshua is being promoted by the
Messianic Charismatic MessiahNet/Perfect Word Ministries, in
order that everyone will become familiar with "the

in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Our new outreach program
WWYD?(tm) [What would Yeshua do?]is also off the ground! .

vision of sharing the name of Yeshua by branding every
e-mail they send with the Savior's name. http://www.wwyd.com/

have the little strips of paper. He sent one out. One minute
later, one comes in, this is it. So, these things happen
strategically. Anyway, we went on and a bunch of us got
knighted by these Knights of Malta. Okay, I did first. And I
wasn’t even going to do it. I thought it was a great honor
and all. But, I just don’t join things like that . . .
Anyway, Paul Cain called me from Austria. And said, you
know, ‘Just tuned in on it.’ And said, ‘The Lord is going to
give you some credentials like Paul’s credentials where his
Roman citizenship really was used at times . . .’ And he
said, ‘You’re really supposed to do this thing.’ So, I did
and then later some of the other guys, we even got Bobby
Connor knighted and Steve and Leonard. Anyway, we had a big
time. Bobby, we dubbed Sir Bubba and Mahesh (Chavada) became
Sir Loin. We seriously polluted the Blue Blood of Europe. I
mean it was bad. Ricky Skaggs, you know, country (singer).
Aw man, it was a blast. We had a great time though. Anyway,
we got knighted by this thing. It’s a real, this somehow is
real important to the Lord. He’s kept this order in
existence, I think, like He has Israel. It has an end times
purpose and destiny . . . They went on, made me a knight
commander which gave me authority to knight others and then
they made me something else, where I have authority over all
the knights supposedly in the U.S. . . ." (Audio by Rick

From Rick Joyner's wrote in
his MorningStar in April, 1998, and currently, and he declared the
difference between Masons and Knights of Malta, stating they
were not the same. [http://gabe.eaglestar.org/MSPBApr98.htm]
In October 2001, Joyner
added 'Knights of Malta Q& A and "Q. Why did I join the
Knights of Malta?"
"...In 1987 I
met a man from one of the old noble families of Eastern Europe. His family had
owned a large and prosperous industry before the communist takeover in their
country. In a conversation with him I was told about an extraordinary order of
knights who were keeping alive the vision of
chivalry and the defense of Christianity, and were waging a brave fight to
reclaim what had been lost to the enemies of the cross. He explained that you
could not join this order, but had to be recommended and proven to be true of
the most stringent biblical standards of morality and integrity, and have
risked your life for the sake of the gospel. I was very intrigued, and decided
to research this order called “The Knights
...I saw many parallels in the history of the
Knights of Malta, who are also called
the Order of St. John (OSJ), with what I had
been shown prophetically in the vision I was given about the coming harvest
and the struggle that much of the world was about to face.
...The call is for Christians to arise and do the same thing in the spirit
that the OSJ did in the natural during the
Middle Ages. Our weapons are the Word of God and His truth, which are
infinitely more powerful.
I was also shown that some of the great last day leaders of Christianity would
emerge from these extreme Islamic groups who would be converted by the power
of God. These would be as radical for Christ as they had been for Islam, and
they would be willing to make any sacrifice required for the sake of the
truth, and turn multitudes to life in Christ that they would have otherwise
Then I was shown that the Lord had preserved a remnant of true
knights of the
OSJ because they had a purpose in the great last day battle between
light and darkness. One day I actually prayed that, even though I had never
desired earthly honors or titles, I would like to become one of these
knights. After this prayer, it seemed that
hardly a month went by and prophetic people began saying that they had seen me
being "knighted by the Lord.” Sometimes I was told this in public meetings,
which I am sure many who were in our early meetings remember.
...while I was in Berlin speaking at a conference, Paul Cain and I had dinner
with Colonel Eugene Bird....
told me that he had recently been knighted by this Order, and that I too had
been recommended for investiture by an Austrian baron. He also told me about a
spiritual renewal that was taking place in the ,
and that some of this had come about because of my books which were being read
by the knights
The OSJ connected to the Masons? A.
No. Neither are there any secret vows or
rituals in the OSJ. The
OSJ is a true Christian order, and the vows for knighthood are commitments
to be servants of Christ and no other god, as well as to Christian truth and
principles. The eight pointed Maltese Cross was designed to represent the
eight beatitudes of Christ which the knight was to wear on his heart at
all times as a constant reminder of what was to be in his heart...."
Charisma Magazine wrote an April 2001 article
about Rick Joyner titled, God's Lightning Rod, and said
"...Joyner has also distanced himself from
those who have criticized him for his association with the Knights of
charitable organization that allegedly has its roots in medieval
chivalry. Some who learned of Joyner's connection to the group began
spreading rumors that he had become a Mason or that the
Malta was a
secret society with occult origins.
"We do not let paranoid people dictate what we do," Joyner wrote in
the May/June 1999 issue of the Morning Star Prophetic Bulletin, adding:
"I have never been a member of the Masons." He explained that he had
been knighted by a "European order of chivalry" in the early 1990s and
that the Knights
are widely recognized as "a registry of nobility."
According to Joyner, the
as the Order of St. John--has Christian roots and can be linked to the
Hospitallers, who were credited with starting hospitals during the
Middle Ages. The order conducts no secret ceremonies as does a Masonic
lodge and actually has undergone a spiritual revival, Joyner says.
Joyner has even written a book about the
That Changed the World, which features a
photograph of the robed "grand master" of the order. In the book, Joyner
compares the Knights
to end-time Christians who will overcome the world's evils through faith
What Joyner didn't realize when he wrote his book is that the group
he joined has "no connection whatsoever with any legitimate order of
chivalry of that name," according to Guy Stair Sainty, historiographer
of the priory in the United States of the Most Venerable Order of St.
In a letter of response to an inquiry about Joyner's group, Sainty
said the order Joyner has joined is not the original
Malta but "one of
more than 20 similar bodies which misuse the name of St. John [to
distribute] invented titles...and worthless knighthoods." Sainty added
that individuals who join the legitimate
Malta group must
be Roman Catholic and have a bishop's recommendation.
former ministry staffer told Charisma that he got concerned when Joyner began
urging friends to be knighted in an inner circle. "I never felt a peace about
it," the former employee said. "It is an elitist club. People started vying
for position so they could be knighted. The ones that were knighted had a
special bond with Rick."
It is implied that Paul Cain,
one of Mr. Joyner's associates, also became a Knight of Malta.
However, this author received an email from Paul Cain
declaring he has never been a Knight.

and close friend to Rick Joyner, who viewed him as his
'spiritual father', he had been part of what some called the
Kansas City Prophets. In October 19, 2004, Rick Joyner, Mike
Bickle and Jack Deere released a Special Bulletin Number 36
regarding Paul Cain's activities and stated:
"Paul Cain has been used
mightily by the Lord to touch many lives in our times. He is
esteemed by many around the world as a major prophetic voice
and as a spiritual father. It would be hard to estimate the
number who have been healed, delivered, or saved through his
ministry. We have especially benefited from his friendship and
ministry in too many ways to count.
...In February 2004, we were
made aware that Paul had become an alcoholic. In April 2004,
we confronted Paul with evidence that he had been recently
involved in homosexual activity. Paul admitted to these sinful
practices and was placed under discipline, agreeing to a
process of restoration which the three of us would oversee.
However, Paul has resisted this process and has continued in
We apologize to the body of
Christ for our lack of discernment in promoting Paul’s
ministry while he had these significant strongholds in his
life. We failed to see them until this year. It is also a
mistake to assume that others who were close to Paul or worked
with him shared these same problems. We also do not feel that
this should in any way negate or reduce the great benefit that
Paul’s ministry has been to so many in the past..."

Joyner, Mike Bickle, and Jack Deere http://www.morningstarministries.org/pages/special_bulletins/oct_2004/SB36_Oct_19.html]
That was followed October 25,
2004 Special Bulletin Number 37, which in part stated:
...Please also understand
that if Paul had been a true member of a local church, under
the true authority of a pastor, we would have simply taken it
there. However, with Paul this was not the case. As Mike,
Jack, and I have talked about considerably, one of our biggest
failures in this matter was to think that because Paul had
such special gifts he deserved special treatment and did not
need to be incorporated into the life of the local church like
others. I have little doubt that if Paul had been required to
comply with the disciplines of a normal Christian life, which
without question includes a true church life, these
strongholds would have been exposed long ago. He would be free
now and probably far more productive than he has ever been.
This is the first and possibly the most important lesson that
we have learned from this.
Because Mike, Jack, and I felt so inadequate in trying to help
Paul with these issues, we were always open and praying for
the Lord to provide anyone who could do a better job than we
were doing. From the beginning I think we all saw that this
was a much greater problem than any of us had ever dealt with
...Even so, we continue to
pray for this provision of someone to help him that can do
better than we did. However, because of the extraordinary and
powerful gifts that Paul has and the way that they have been
used recently, there are very serious dangers for anyone who
does not understand these things. Anyone who is presumptuous
in this could be in even more jeopardy.
I am not saying this to hurt Paul, but I am saying this for
the sake of protecting God’s people from what has been proven
to be a danger. When the devil gets an inroad into someone
with a great anointing he takes full advantage of it, and the
level of deception and seduction that is working in Paul at
this time is greater than anything I have personally ever
witnessed before...." [Special

revival of paganism, which, according to various reports,
reduces people to altered states of consciousness. See Richard
Foster & Christian Mystics

what is called, "Chakra Piercing." The following
description reveals that piercing or scarring is far more than
a form of rebellion or art form, but is geared to produce the

are the major energy centres within our bodies, called such
in the Hindu traditions which have been their main
advocates. Body Piercing is an ancient tradition of gnosis
which has gained increasing popularity in recent years in
various subcultures. One of my aims with performing
piercings at these energy centres is to unite these
traditions, to open awareness of the chakra energies to the
physical/materialist-orientated western mind, and to
acknowledge body piercing as an ancient and valid means of
gnosis, rather than just a decorative art.
"What is within is brought without. The location of the
chakra points is thus demonstrated - although piercings are
only basically surface punctures, they do focus the
attention on a certain area and thus activate the energies
there, as in acupuncture techniques.
The physical sensation of pain also releases chemicals in
the body which help induce gnosis and trance."18.

his book," Book of the Hopi." This
unification in mysticism helps one understand that each comes
from the same source.
and Hindu mysticisms, like Hopi mysticism, postulate a
similar series of centers of force or psychophysical centers
in the human body, in which psychic forces and bodily
functions merge into each other. These cakras, as described,
coincide with those of the Hopis. They correspond roughly
with the physical centers but they function psychically
rather than solely physiologically. The highest and most
important center described by Eastern mysticism lies, like
that of the Hopi, at the crown of the head. . . it is so
important as a seat of psychic consciousness that it is
regarded as of a higher order than the other centers. As in
the Hopi belief, it is the "door to the Creator,"
through which consciousness enters and leaves." 19.
ministers have also identified the manifestations of the
current revival as classic demon possession. Appropriately,
Kundalini is called the sleeping serpent residing at the base
of the spine. Ray McGraw of Ray of Hope Ministries, wrote in "Unmasking

become involved in this "revival" have required

powerful spirits reserved for the end time. All the
manifestations such as roaring like a lion, birthing,
scrunching etc. were manifestations produced by the False
prophet generating worship for the Anti-christ. I have solid
proof of this. . . "

these spirits have an assignment against God's people and

careful of individuals who want to pray for you when you
have not solicited their prayers, as the spirits are

Shall Be Like Gods
Freemasonry, Hinduism and astrology (New Age 'universal'
religion) have key elements in common. 1. secret meaning and
symbolism that are related 2. elimination of the name and
person of Jesus Christ in their rituals 3. belief that world
peace can be accomplished through tolerance and acceptance of
all things, i.e. unity through diversity, except adherence to
Biblical truth. 4.mutual affinity to the occult
Kabbalists believe the "messiah" will be one who has
accomplished total spiritual evolution to perfection: ".
. . In Kabbalah, an individual whose all chakras have fully
and permanently awakened would be called the Messiah."21
totality of the attributes of God which initiates seek to
attain are found in Ten Sephiroth, numbers are an essential
part of initiation rituals.
de P. Castells, stated that the art of Counting and the
numbers of Freemasonry have hidden significance, which he
traces to the Hebrew origins of the Kabbalah and it's Gematria
permutations and numerology. Basically he maintained that,
"The Architect, the Geometrician, and every Mason,
whether operative or free and speculative, are absolutely
dependent on the Science of Numbers".
regard to these facts we are justified, I think, in
expecting that any numbers, quantities and measurements
mentioned in the Ritual must have a hidden significance.
And, indeed, I am of opinion that in the Ritual there is
nothing arbitrary, superfluous or meaningless. . . At the
dawn of civilization there seem to have been tribes counting
"by threes" and tribes counting "by

which the Craft has been founded; it has been a potent
factor in the development of the human mind, and may help us
to understand some of the principles which underlie our
Masonic Ritual. Going back to primitive times, we find that
there are two principal methods of counting: (1) By threes,
and (2) by fives. The former leads us to the
mysterious nine and to the other sacred numbers of the
ancient mysteries. . . " 23.
Castells further concludes that the numbers 3-5-7 are believed
to hold mystical powers which are instilled into Masonic
. . the numbers 3-5-7 are invested with mystic significance.
It should be so if Freemasonry has come down to us from a
Hebrew source." 24
reasons for the adoption of the numbers 3-5-7 as elements of
our symbolism, explained: 3 and 5 were adopted because
Nature itself suggested them as significant of mystic power.
The number 7 is par excellence the Masonic number;
its meaning is found by observing that it combines 3 and 4,
thus 3+4=7. A review of the ceremonies and of the matter
contained in our Masonic Ritual will show our ancient
Brethren did not choose any of their symbolic
numbers arbitrarily or at random."25.
the Rituals and significance of the addition of numbers 3
& 4, Castells suggests that their union provides the
concept of God being brought into relation with humans. He
then explains the origins and formulas of the "Mysterious
Greek imagination pictured Nine Goddesses, the Muses, who
were said to be the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosune, that
is, "God and the Memory", each of them presiding
over one of their "Nine Liberal Arts". And in the
Ancient Scottish Rite we find a Ninth Degree, in which the
brethren are styled "Elected Knights of Nine".
may I call your attention to a curious property of "the
Mysterious Nine, which is that, whenever we add together the
figures by which we express any of its multiples we always
get another nine or some lesser products resolvable to the
same number. For example: 2x9 =18 ; add 1+8 and you get 9;
4x9 =36; add 3+6 =9 . . . " 26.
sacred number three, "leads us to the mysterious nine and
to the other sacred numbers of the ancient mysteries. .
." it is obvious that Masonic ritual and beliefs are
steeped in kabbalism and pagan lore. The Masonic 'mysterious
nine' formula and other sacred formulas, are also found in the
Gematria permutations like the "Qabalah of the Nine
Chambers" which specifically includes the numerals 600,
60, 6. 27.
rituals are recognized as being derived from doctrine of
Luciferic initiation. In the "Arithmetic of
de P. Castells presents the Kabbalist's interpretation of
the sacred number nine, the Tetragrammaton and the Ten
Sephiroth. Kaballists believe the Ten
Sephiroth are the attributes of God and that the Tree
of Life and corresponding Hindu chakras are the means
of acquiring each of those attributes. "In the case of
the Sephiroth...we must have either the whole formula or none
at all..." 28., meaning the sacred number nine and the
Tetragrammaton. F. de P. Castells also claims that the number
zero should be renamed, ". . . it would be more
appropriate to call it all, seeing that it imports
infinity. . . . it is derived from the Hebrew oser, osarah,
which means "ten," 29. thereby aligning it to the
"ten Sephiroth" or attributes of God.

who have achieved the level of perfection are said to be able
to receive the 42-letter Name of God. Some suggest the
42-Letters consist of the Hebrew names of the Ten Sephiroth,
with the Vav conjuctive before the last one.
Receiving the Name comes from the occult concept that whoever
holds the name of a "god" has control over it.
that penetrated the Mystery of the 42-Letter Name, would
also perceive six Yods ( the initial of the Divine Name
sextupled) in the pure sky, three to the right and three to
the left, as well as three Vavs which were said to be
hovering in the heavenly arch, 9 letters altogether, or 3
times 3. . . 9 letters as a reference to the Priestly
Benediction, which the Kabbalists thought of as falling on
the adepts who adhered to the 42-Letter Name." 30.
relates the qualifications for receiving the name, according
to the Talmud:
. in the Talmud, after the 12-Letter Name has been mentioned
as a secret "communicated to the most pious of
priests," there is a reference to a Name of 42 letters
" which was only communicated to such as are pious, not
easily provoked, not given to drinking, and not
self-opinionated. He who knows this Name and preserves it
inviolate is beloved above, cherished below, respected of
every creature, and is heir of both worlds--the world that
now is and the world to come. . . Maimonides. . . [remarked
concerning the receipt of the Name] "Moral
qualifications and great preparations are required." He
evidently knew the mysterious name and the conditions under
which it was communicated to Initiates."31.
reception of the Name of God is found in " The Rite of
Perfection" and other degrees known under the name of the
"Ineffable Degrees". 32 According to the former
Fludd, a Rosicrucian connected to the Jewish Cabalist,
Michel Maier", the "Ineffable Degrees" are
invested with all the mystic awe by which the Tetragrammaton
is surrounded within Jewish theology. Accordingly, Masons
who achieve the level of these degrees, "received the
name of God as it was revealed to Enoch and were sworn to
pronounce it but once in their lives." 33.
belief that the Ineffable Name is invested with magical powers
is also found in the Jewish Cabala. Ragon, after describing
the Jewish ceremony when the word Jehovah was pronounced by
the High Priest in the Holy of Holies, goes on to say the
"Schem-hamm--phorash," another term for the
Tetragrammaton forms the sacred word of a Scottish degree, and
that this belief in its mystic properties, "will be found
at the head of the instructions for the third degree of the
Knights of the Black Eagle, called Rose-Croix, "thus:. .
. the knights who had the good fortune to pronounce it
cabalistically would have at his disposal the powers that
inhabit the four elements and the celestial spirits, and would
possess all the virtues possible to man." 34.

the Beast," the Rosicrucian's play an important part in
the inauguration of the "Golden Age".

is the general reformation of the world announced in the
Rosicrucian manifestos described as a world reformation. . .
It will bring the world back to the state in which Adam
found it, which was also SATURN'S GOLDEN AGE. . . This
return to the golden age of Adam and SATURN, is said to be
assisted by 'the high society of the Rosicrucians."
(Yates, p, 57) 35.
the Pope also a Freemason?
Castells reveals that the Masons believe, like the Kabbalists,
Hindus and New Age, that they personify God when they achieve
all the levels of ritual. They also believe that Satan will
rise as god and that all will become cleansed in the
"Great Jubilee Year, including the place of eternal
punishment called hell.
. at the creation of the Universe were Wisdom, Strength,
Beauty, which we (like the Kabbalists) have personified. One
day the Angel of Wickedness, called Samael, or the
"Venomous Beast," will be restored to his original
angelic nature, and then the first part of his name SAM
(which means "venom') will be dropped and only the
second part, the name EL, will be retained. El (as every R.A.
Mason knows) is the common name for all divine beings. That
grand consummation will be the "Great Jubilee
Year" when the whole pleroma of souls, cleansed and
purified, will return to the bosom of the Infinite Source,
to be reunited with the Highest Soul, supplementing each
other in "the Sanctum Sanctorum of the
Seven Halls," which was the Kabbalists way of
expressing the idea of a "G.L.above". At that
time, they said, Hell will disappear and there will be no
more punishment, no more temptation, no more sin." 36.
[Castells writes: A Kabbalist writer, Isaac bin Abraham bin
Latif or Allatif. . . in order to explain "the right
way to the Sanctuary," that is the symbolic Sanctum
Sanctorum, made use of mathematical forms which he said
illustrated the self-revelation of Deity in the world of
noteworthy that many in "Christian" leadership
denounce the existence of hell and heaven as
"places". Bible reviser, B.F. Westcott wrote in 1886
to the Archbishop of Canterbury, "No doubt the language
of the rubric is unguarded, but it saves us from the error of
connecting the presence of Christ's glorified humanity with
place: heaven is a state and not a place."

John Paul II announced his views on this very issue, revealing
his stand against the Word of God.
According to the Detroit
week after telling Roman Catholics that heaven was not a
place up in the clouds, Pope John Paul II said Wednesday
that hell was not a physical place either.
"'More than a physical place, hell is the state of
those who freely and definitively separate themselves from
God, the source of all life and joy,' the pontiff said. . .
"He described hell instead as 'the pain, frustration
and emptiness of life without God. . . . Eternal damnation
is not God's work, but. . . our own doing.'
"But demons do exist, he said, calling them spirits who
given a definitive 'no' to God.'
"The pontiff end-of-millennium guidelines on hell came
a week after he told pilgrims heaven was not 'a physical place in the clouds
but a living and personal relationship of union with the Holy
that a foretaste could be had on earth." 37.
It is common
knowledge among concerned Roman Catholics that the Vatican has
been infiltrated by Freemasonry and there is evidence that the
popes since John XXIII have themselves been Freemasons.
A Catholic publication, The Pope of the Council, Part 19: John
XXIII and Masonry, published by Sodalitium,
states: "The Freemason, Volpicelli, declared:. . . [T]wo
recent pontificates, that of Pope John and Pope Wojtyla [John
Paul II], have equally valued the two communities of the
Church and Masonry. . . " This document discloses the
infiltration of the Knights of Malta by the Freemasons:
"John XXIII reversed the decision of his predecessor
[Pius XII] and reopened the path of Masonic infiltration in
the Order. Only in the Order -- and also in the Church?"
findings are confirmed by such Catholic authors as Dr. James
W. Wardner in "The Popes of the Second Vatican"
and by Dr. William R. Kubitschek's series, "Catholics
Have No Pope!", published in Criminal Politics
Magazine. That three part series presented the
"...historical impact of Freemasonry, papal manipulation
and Vatican II on the present day "Catholic"
Church". For more on Eternity See: Will
God Say "Just Kidding" About Eternity?
the years have proclaimed the Catholic church and the Pope as
being the culprit of "the identity of the Man of Sin
and Mystery Babylon." In fact, many would point to
the Ecumenical movement, Catholics and Evangelicals Together,
Promise Keepers and many other Biblical compromisers moving
back to Rome, as proof of this thinking.
However, it becomes
clear that what is being moved towards by all groups is
initiation into the occult and which all the groups discussed
in these reports have entered into, in one way or another.
From rebellion, to tattoos, idolatry, necromancy, freemasonry,
mysticism and signs and wonders, the path is well trodden.
characteristic Masonic fashion, Pope John Paul II has denied
the doctrine of God's wrath and approaching judgment against
those who reject Him.
19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false
prophet that wrought miracles before him,
with which he deceived them that had
received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his
image. These both were cast alive into a lake of
fire burning with brimstone.
"And the devil that deceived them was
cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the
beast and the false prophet are, and shall be
tormented day and night for ever and ever."
"And death and hell were cast into the lake of
fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was
not found written in the book of life was cast into
the lake of fire."
of the existence of heaven and hell contradicts many
Scriptures and eliminates the consequences for sin, including
worship of the Beast and taking the mark. Those who take the
mark or worship the Beast are warned in Revelation 14:9-11,
that they shall receive the wrath of God, and
"will be tormented with fire and brimstone . . . and the
smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever:
and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the
beast and his image, and whosoever recieveth the mark of his
preceding verses it should be noted that those who worship the
Beast and take the mark, will do so because they are deceived.
We can assume they will receive the mark believing it is a
'good' and religious thing to do, since many will be deceived
by signs and lying wonders especially the miracles of the
false prophet, according to Revelation 13:12-14.

pretend to know exactly how the end-time scenario will be
played out. Some are even suggesting the possibility that
technology, the computer chip and the cashless society will be
combined with tattooing/branding to enslave and control
people. What we do know is that the Word of God forbids the

print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:28

believers of the occult nature of the symbols and terminology

no guarantees against deception unless they interpret endtime

grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good
word and work."
