3:1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.

3:2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;

3:3 And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;

3:4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

3:5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.

3:6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

3:7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.

3:8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.

3:9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

3:10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

3:11 And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.

3:12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.

3:13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.

3:14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.

3:15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.

3:16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.

3:17 And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.

3:18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.

3:19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.

3:20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.

3:21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD. 1 Samuel

4:1 And the word of Samuel came to all Israel. Now Israel went out against the Philistines to battle, and pitched beside Ebenezer: and the Philistines pitched in Aphek.

4:2 And the Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of the army in the field about four thousand men.

4:3 And when the people were come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore hath the LORD smitten us to day before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it cometh among us, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies.

4:4 So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from thence the ark of the covenant of the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth between the cherubims: and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.

4:5 And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth rang again.

4:6 And when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, What meaneth the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews? And they understood that the ark of the LORD was come into the camp.

4:7 And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.

4:8 Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? these are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness.

4:9 Be strong and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight.

4:10 And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.

4:11 And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.

4:12 And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army, and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothes rent, and with earth upon his head.

4:13 And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God. And when the man came into the city, and told it, all the city cried out.

4:14 And when Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said, What meaneth the noise of this tumult? And the man came in hastily, and told Eli.

4:15 Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see.

4:16 And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son?

4:17 And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.

4:18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.

4:19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas’ wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her.

4:20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it.

4:21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.

4:22 And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken. 1 Samuel
5:1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.

5:2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

5:3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

5:4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

5:5 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

5:6 But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

5:7 And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.

5:8 They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

5:9 And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

5:10 Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

5:11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

5:12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven. 1 Samuel

1 SAMUEL 5:11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.


6:1 And the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

6:2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the LORD? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.

6:3 And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.

6:4 Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

6:5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

6:6 Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

6:7 Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:

6:8 And take the ark of the LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.

6:9 And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

6:10 And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:

6:11 And they laid the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

6:12 And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.

6:13 And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

6:14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the LORD.

6:15 And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the LORD.

6:16 And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

6:17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the LORD; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

6:18 And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the LORD: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

6:19 And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

6:20 And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy LORD God? and to whom shall he go up from us?

6:21 And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the LORD; come ye down, and fetch it up to you. 1 Samuel


An early circular ichthys symbol, created by combining the Greek letters ΙΧΘΥΣ, Ephesus. ΙΧΘΥΣ, or also ΙΧΘΥC with lunate sigma (Ichthys) is a backronym/acrostic for “Ίησο ς Χριστός, Θεο Υ ός, Σωτήρ”, (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr), which translates into English as “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour”.

Ichthyosis vulgaris is a skin condition that causes dry, dead skin cells to accumulate in patches on the surface of your skin. It’s also known as “fish scale disease” because the dead skin accumulates in a similar pattern to a fish’s scales.

The ichthys or ichthus (/ˈɪkθəs/[1] ), from the Greek ikhthýs ( χθύς, “fish”), is a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish. It was used by early Christians as a secret Christian symbol [2] and now known colloquially as the “sign of the fish” or the “Jesus fish”. [3]

Ichthys as adopted as a Christian symbol.

Greeks, Romans, and many other pagans used the fish symbol before Christians. In pagan beliefs, Ichthys was the offspring of the ancient sea goddess Atargatis, and was known in various mythic systems as Tirgata, Aphrodite, Pelagia, or Delphine. In certain non-Christian beliefs the fish also has been identified with reincarnation and the life force. [4] However, Christians did not use the symbol in the same way or with the same meaning as pagans did.

Fish are mentioned and given symbolic meaning several times in the Gospels. Several of Jesus’ twelve Apostles were fishermen. He commissions them with the words “I will make you fishers of men”.

Having resurrected, Jesus is offered some grilled fish and honeycomb in Luke 24:41-43. [11]

At the feeding of the five thousand, a boy is brought to Jesus with “five small loaves and two fish”. The question is asked, “But what are they, among so many?” Jesus multiplies the loaves and fish to feed the multitude. In Matthew 13:47-50, the Parable of Drawing in the Net, Jesus compares God’s decision on who will go to heaven or to hell (“the fiery furnace”) at the end of this world to fishers sorting out their catch, keeping the good fish and throwing the bad fish away. [12] In John 21:11, it is related that the disciples fished all night but caught nothing. [13] Jesus instructed them to cast the nets on the other side of the boat, and they drew in 153 fish. In Matthew 17:24-27, upon being asked if his Teacher pays the temple (or two-drachma) tax, Simon Peter answers yes. Christ tells Peter to go to the water and cast a line, saying that a coin sufficient for both of them will be found in the fish’s mouth. Peter does this and finds the coin. [14]

The fish is also used by Jesus to describe “the Sign of Jonah”. (Matthew 12:38-45) This is symbolic of the resurrection of Christ upon which the entire Christian faith is based. ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-58)

According to tradition, ancient Christians, during their persecution by the Roman Empire in the first few centuries after Christ, used the fish symbol to mark meeting places and tombs, or to distinguish friends from foes:

Funerary stele with the inscription ΙΧΘΥC ΖΩΝΤΩΝ (“fish of the living”), early 3rd century, National Roman Museum

There are several other hypotheses as to why the fish was chosen. Some sources indicate that the earliest literary references came from the recommendation of Clement of Alexandria to his readers (Paedagogus, III, xi) to engrave their seals with the dove or fish. However, it can be inferred from Roman monumental sources such as the Cappella Greca and the Sacrament Chapels of the catacomb of St. Callistus that the fish symbol was known to Christians much earlier. Another probable explanation is that it is a reference to the scripture in which Jesus miraculously feeds 5,000 people with fish and bread Matthew 14:15-21, Mark 6:30-44, Luke 9:12-17, and John 6:4-13). [15][16][17][18] The ichthys may also relate to Jesus or his disciples as “fishers of men” (e.g., Mark 1:17). [19][20]

Tertullian, in his treatise On Baptism, makes a pun on the word, writing that “we, little fishes, after the example of our ΙΧΘΥΣ Jesus Christ, are born in water.” [21] Still another explanation could be the reference to the sign of Jonah. Just like he was in the belly of a big fish, so Christ was crucified, entombed for three days, and then rose from the dead.

In the 1970s the “Jesus Fish” started to be used as an icon of modern Christianity. In 1973 the symbol and message was taken to the Aquarius Rock Festival in Nimbin, Australia. Today, it can be seen as a decal or emblem on the rear of automobiles or as pendants or necklaces as a sign that the owner is a Christian. Versions of this include an Ichthys with “Jesus” or “ΙΧΘΥΣ” in the centre, or simply the Ichthys outline by itself. [22]

Ichthus Music Festival is an annual large outdoor Christian music Festival held in mid-June in Wilmore, Kentucky. Ichthus Festival is the oldest Christian music festival in the United States. [23



NWO IN THE BIBLE? One world currency? NWO VS NOTW





Does the Bible prophesy a one-world government and a one-world currency in the end times?

Subscribe to our Question of the Week: Email Address


Question: “Does the Bible prophesy a one-world government and a one-world currency in the end times?”

Answer: The Bible does not use the phrase “one-world government” or “one-world currency” in referring to the end times. It does, however, provide ample evidence to enable us to draw the conclusion that both will exist under the rule of the Antichrist in the last days.

In his apocalyptic vision in the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John sees the “beast,” also called the Antichrist, rising out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns (Revelation 13:1). Combining this vision with Daniel’s similar one (Daniel 7:16-24), we can conclude that some sort of world system will be inaugurated by the beast, the most powerful “horn,” who will defeat the other nine and will begin to wage war against Christians. The ten-nation confederacy is also seen in Daniel’s image of the statue in Daniel 2:41-42, where he pictures the final world government consisting of ten entities represented by the ten toes of the statue. Whoever the ten are and however they come to power, Scripture is clear that the beast will either destroy them or reduce their power to nothing more than figureheads. In the end, they will do his bidding.

John goes on to describe the ruler of this vast empire as having power and great authority, given to him by Satan himself (Revelation 13:2), being followed by and receiving worship from “all the world” (13:3-4), and having authority over “every tribe, people, language and nation” (13:7). From this description, it is logical to assume that this person is the leader of a one-world government which is recognized as sovereign over all other governments. It’s hard to imagine how such diverse systems of government as are in power today would willingly subjugate themselves to a single ruler, and there are many theories on the subject. A logical conclusion is that the disasters and plagues described in Revelation as the seal and trumpet judgments (chapters 6-11) will be so devastating and create such a monumental global crisis that people will embrace anything and anyone who promises to give them relief.

Once entrenched in power, the beast (Antichrist) and the power behind him (Satan) will move to establish absolute control over all peoples of the earth to accomplish their true end, the worship Satan has been seeking ever since being thrown out of heaven (Isaiah 14:12-14). One way they will accomplish this is by controlling all commerce, and this is where the idea of a one-world currency comes in. Revelation 13:16-17 describes some sort of satanic mark which will be required in order to buy and sell. This means anyone who refuses the mark will be unable to buy food, clothing or other necessities of life. No doubt the vast majority of people in the world will succumb to the mark simply to survive. Again, verse 16 makes it clear that this will be a universal system of control where everyone, rich and poor, great and small, will bear the mark on their hand or forehead. There is a great deal of speculation as to how exactly this mark will be affixed, but the technologies that are available right now could accomplish it very easily.

Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers. But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.

ANCIENT BOOKS: Spells, communication with angels, Talismans, Chants










4 Ars Notoria

A Solomonic grimoire compiled in the 13th century, the Ars Notoria does not contain any spells or potions. It focuses instead on the acquisition of learning, the command of memory, and gaining insight into difficult books.

The Ars Notoria promises practitioners the mastery of liberal arts—geometry, arithmetic, and philosophy among them —through a lengthy daily process of visualization, contemplation, and orations. Through these orations, you can beseech God for intellectual gifts, including eloquence, heightened senses, wisdom, and perfect memory.

As a book concerned primarily with enlightenment, the Ars Notoria eschewed some of the more malevolent aspects of magic. However, not everyone was convinced of its benign nature. One notable 14th-century monk, John of Morigny, devoutly followed the teachings of the Ars Notoria and had haunting visions, until he claimed that the visions themselves were demonic in nature. He warned people of the diabolical nature of the Ars Notoria in his own mystical manuscript, the Liber Visonum.

3 Pseudomonarchia Daedonum

The Pseudomonarchia Daedonum was written by famed 16th-century physician and demonologist Johann Weyer, who was greatly inspired by his former teacher, celebrated German occultist Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa. It is the appendix to his seminal work against the persecution of witchcraft, the Praestigiis Daemonum, hailed by Sigmund Freud as one of the most important books of all time.

The Pseudomonarchia Daedonum is a catalog of 69 noble demons—prominent members of Hell’s monarchy—their specialties, and the methods of conjuring them. Naberius, for example, is a marquess who comes in the form of a crow and “maketh a man amiable and cunning in all arts.” Foras is a president who “recovereth lost things and discovereth treasures.” Other members of the demonic aristocracy include Haagenti, who can turn water into wine, Shax, who steals horses and robs people’s sight and hearing, and Eligos, who can see the future of wars and the fates of soldiers.

Weyer, however, was a devout Christian who approached the prospect of conjuring these Hell-bound spirits with great caution. He omitted key details of the rituals and warned those who read the Pseudomonarchia against imitating this “proof of folly.”

2 Sworn Book Of Honorius

Also known as the Liber Juratus Honorii, the Sworn Book of Honorius is a medieval grimoire and defense of ritual magic rumored to be the work of Honorius of Thebes, a mysterious, possibly mythological figure who has never been identified. The book begins with a scathing criticism of the Catholic church. The Church, a staunch enemy of the dark arts, has been corrupted by the devil, whose goal is to doom humanity by ridding the world of the benefits of magic.

The Sworn Book makes lofty demands of its practitioners. Only three copies of the book can be made, anyone in possession of the book who cannot find a worthy magician to inherit it must take it to their grave, and all adherents must “utterly forbear the company of women.”

Like many other grimoires, its rituals focus largely on summoning angels, demons, and other spirits to gain knowledge and power. By repeating long-winded orations, the practitioner is promised a wealth of scintillating abilities. These powers range from the awesome (causing floods and destroying kingdoms) to the eerie (seeing into purgatory and knowing the hour of your death). Among its most malign spells are ones to “to cast sickness into whom you will,” “to cause discord and debate,” and “to kill whom you will.”

1 The Book Of Abramelin The Mage

Written in the 15th century, the Book of Abramelin the Mage is one of the most prominent mystical texts of all time. It is the work of Abraham von Worms, a Jewish traveler who purportedly encountered the enigmatic magician Abramelin during a voyage to Egypt. In exchange for 10 florins and the promise of piety, Abramelin gifted this manuscript of magic to Abraham, who then passed it on to his son Lamech.

Abramelin’s ritual, referred to as “the operation,” is an arduous one. It consists of 18 months of prayer and purification, which is only recommended for men of sound health between the ages of 25 and 50. Women in general are discouraged from undertaking “the operation” because of their “curiosity and love of talk,” although an exception can be made for virgins. If the tenets of “the operation” are adhered to strictly and with unwavering devotion, you get in touch with your Holy Guardian Angel, who will grant you a wealth of powers. These powers include necromancy and divination, precognition, control of the weather, knowledge of secrets, visions of the future, and the ability to open locked doors.

The book relies heavily on the power of magic squares—unique words arranged into puzzles. Like the Icelandic staves in the Galdrabok, these squares contain mystic and occult properties when written out. The word “MILON,” for example, reveals the secrets of past and future when written on parchment and placed over the head, while “SINAH” brings war. The author warns that some magic squares, like “CASED” are too sinister to ever implement.

This text had a profound impact on famed occultist Aleister Crowley, who claimed to have experienced several supernatural occurrences after embarking on the ritual, and on the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a 19th-century British magical order. Crowley later used the book as the foundation for his own system of magic.

K. Fane has never summoned any spirits, but has accidentally summoned the fire department during a failed candlelit seance to contact the ghost of Theodore Roosevelt. She lives in California.


Humankind has long dabbled in the supernatural, lured by the promise of obtaining power and enlightenment. Several texts have been devoted to this practice, outlining complicated and mysterious rituals that were presented as the key to achieving communion with otherworldly spirits.

10 Greek Magical Papyri

The Greek magical papyri from the second century B.C. listed spells, rituals, and divinations. These included instructions for how to summon a headless demon, open doors to the underworld, and protect yourself from wild beasts. Perhaps most tantalizing of all, they describe how to gain a supernatural assistant, an otherworldly entity who does your bidding.

The most commonly found spells in the Papyri are divination spells—ceremonies that offer you visions of the future. One of its most well-known passages provides instructions for how to forecast upcoming events using an “iron lampstead,” “an offering of frankincense,” and an “uncorrupted and pure” child. After being placed into a deep trance, the child sees images flickering in the flame.

Among the Papyri’s most famous components is the Mithras Liturgy. This ceremony describes how to ascend through seven higher planes of existence and communicate with the deity Mithras.

9 The Black Pullet

Originating in France in the 18th century, The Black Pullet focuses on the study of magical talismans, special objects engraved with mystical words that protect and empower the wearer. It was reportedly written by an anonymous officer in Napoleon’s Army, who claimed to have received the contents from a mysterious mage while on expedition in Egypt.

The Pullet includes detailed instructions for how to construct talismans out of bronzed steel, silk, and special ink. Among these invocations is a spell to call upon a djinn, a creature made of smoke and fire who will bring you true love. If your ambitions are slightly more cynical, then the Pullet also provides talismans that will force “discreet men” to tell you their secrets, allow you to see behind closed doors, and destroy anyone who is plotting against you.

The apex of the book’s mystical teachings is acquiring the Black Pullet itself—a hen that can find buried treasure.

8 Ars Almadel

The Ars Almadel is Book Four of the Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as the Lemegeton, a significant grimoire of demonology compiled in the 17th century by an unknown author. This particular book of the Legemeton provides a blueprint for constructing an Almadel—a magical wax altar, somewhat like a ouija board, that allows you to communicate with angels.

The Almadel is composed of four Altitudes, or “Choras,” each of which corresponds with a unique set of angels with different domains. The text provides the names of the angels of each Chora (Gelomiros and Aphiriza, for example), the proper way to direct your requests to them (ask only what is “just and lawful”), and the best calendar dates for invoking them. It also includes brief physical descriptions of these angelic manifestations. The Angels of the Third Chora, for example, come in the form of “little women dressed in green and silver” wearing crowns made of bay leaves.

7 Picatrix

The Picatrix is an ancient grimoire of astrological magic. Originally written in Arabic and titled the Ghayat Al-Hakim, it dates back to the 11th century and spans a mammoth 400 pages of astrological theory. Alongside are spells and incantations to channel the occult energies of planets and stars to achieve power and enlightenment.

The Picatrix is perhaps most notorious for the obscenity of its magic recipes. These gruesome and potentially deadly concoctions are designed to induce altered states of consciousness and out-of-body experiences. Not for the faint of the heart, their ingredients include blood, bodily excretions, and brain matter mixed with copious amounts of hashish, opium, and psychoactive plants. To construct a mirror that gives you power over the dead, for example, you must use noxious fumes of “blood, sperm, spit, ear wax, tears from the eyes, feces, and urine.”

6 Galdrabok

An Icelandic grimoire that originated in 16th century, the Galdrabok is a collection of 47 spells compiled by multiple magicians. Like most Icelandic magic of the period, the Galdrabok relies heavily on staves—runes that have magical properties when carried on the body, carved on objects, or written out. Among the staves drawn in the Galdrabok are ones to attract and curry the favor of powerful men, incite fear in your enemies, and put someone to sleep.

The majority of the spells found in the Galdrabok are “apotropaic spells,” benign remedies designed to protect the practitioner and heal various maladies. These include tiredness, difficulty with childbirth, headaches, and insomnia.

Other spells are pretty peculiar in nature. Spell 46, the hilariously titled “Fart Runes,” is a stave that will strike your enemy with “bad gas . . . and all of these will plague thy belly with great farting . . . may thy farting never stop.” Some are downright sinister. Spell 27, for example, when drawn on someone’s food, will make them sick and unable to eat all day, while Stave 30 is designed to kill another person’s animal. There are also staves to prevent your house from unwanted visitors, catch thieves, and “get satisfaction in a legal case.”

5 Arbatel De Magia Veterum

Composed late in the 16th century by an unknown author, the Arbatel de magia veterum is a comprehensive handbook of spiritual advice and aphorisms. The Arbatel reads much like a mystical self-help book, stressing the importance of Christian godliness, productivity, positive thinking, and using magic to help instead of harm. Its kernels of wisdom include “live for yourself and the Muses; avoid the friendship of the multitude” and “flee the mundane; seek heavenly things.”

The Arbatel reveals a series of rituals to invoke the seven heavenly governors and their legions, who rule over the provinces of the universe. The governors include Bethel, who brings miraculous medicines, Phalec, who brings honor in war, and Aratron, who “maketh hairy men.” However, the ability to perform these rituals is only for a person who is “born to magic from his mother’s womb.” All others, the Arbatel warns, are powerless imitators.

In addition to angels and archangels, the Arbatel mentions a coterie of other helpful elemental spirits that exist beyond the veil of the physical world, including pygmies, nymphs, dryads, sylphs (tiny forest people), and sagani (magical mortal spirits that inhabit the elements).

The Present (with religion)

“True Past”

Table of Contents

Jump to page: 87 – 88 – 89 – 90 – 91 – 92 – 93 – 94 – 95 – 96

We were in the soup: For millions of years, we lived as bacteria. The oceans were like a bacteria soup with trillions of bacteria living and dying. It took a long time to evolve past bacteria. It is a known scientific fact that this is true.

Primordial soup: We were single cell animals for more than eighty percent of the time we have been on Earth. If there is a man/God in the sky watching us, God watched nothing but bacteria for millions of years. Get a microscope, take a look at the world of your past, and see how long you can watch them.

Think about it, if there was a man/God in the sky watching us, he spent millions of years watching bacteria, and millions more watching insects, dinosaurs and other assorted boring, predictable beasts until we evolved into mankind just a few thousand years ago. Mankind is a very new form of life for us.

Humans were on earth for about two hundred thousand years, and only appeared to God in the last six thousand years, according to the Bible. That means for over 95% of time, he did nothing. What about those people? When God did show up, he chose the worst place on earth, the dumbest, most violent people that lived in the Middle East. Why did he completely ignore the more advanced and civilized Chinese? He ignored everyone except those in the Middle East.

When you see the big picture, you realize that if a story is localized, it is made up by the people in that area. A God of all mankind would not ignore most of mankind, would he?

Life clock: If the time life evolved on earth was reduced to a twenty four hour day, human beings evolved just two seconds from the end of the day.

We take being human for granted. How can we do that with what we know now?

We crawled on this earth for a lot longer than we have walked on it.

We were on the exact same earth we are on now. We looked up at the same sky and saw the same moon, sun and stars. The only difference is we were living in a different type of body. We evolved from them, so the odds are we were them.

Just as you are looking out of human eyes now, you looked out of the eyes of a dinosaur. Life looked the same; the only real difference is that you were looking from a different body. You should imagine what living in other bodies was like.

When the dinosaurs went extinct, we went extinct as dinosaurs. Get it?

Soul migration: Just as energy cannot be created or destroyed, it is the same with life. When one life form or species goes extinct, another fills the void, and the soul (you) goes from body to body, species to species, reptile to mammal, etc.

As John Lennon said, “death is like getting out of one car and into another.” When one model becomes obsolete, it is replaced with a different, better model. Life does the same thing. Just as cars have evolved from the model “T” to the models of today, animal life evolved from bacteria to humans, and the drivers (us) remained the same. After the initial conscious life (souls) came to earth as bacteria, the evidence says all animal life, including us, evolved from them, but the initial souls had to come from somewhere besides earth.

Most people do not see that there is absolute proof that souls migrated from some place other than earth. Four and a half billion years ago, there was no life on earth, so all life had to come from somewhere else.

Soul migration means that reincarnation is true. The alternative, the you only live once theory, makes no sense. It would mean that if you were a maggot, or a rat, you got to live as only a maggot, rat, or one of the trillions of other types of life forms one time, and that was it for all of eternity.


Big realization: When you read books and watch TV programs about evolution, they always talk about the animals like we were not them. In the near future, people are going to make the connection and see what the evidence is really saying. Acknowledging our true past is the next big step for mankind.

The real missing link: When it happens, mankind will start transforming into spiritual beings in the evolutionary twinkling of an eye, just as the Bible says.

Most people cannot fathom just how long we lived as savage animals, and they need to in order to realize how new being in a human body is for us.

A billion is a big number: If you start counting non-stop, day and night, seven days a week, and said a new number every second, it would take almost thirty-two years for you to count to a billion. Animal life is almost one billion years old. If you put those seconds into years, you get an idea of how long we have been on earth as some other form of life. Someone had to be those animals, and since we evolved directly from them, it had to be us. Nothing else would make sense.

We cannot recall any of our past lives, because when one of our bodies dies, our mind and memories die with it, but now we know, and this will change us.

The truth sets you free: We may not remember we lived before, but we now know we did. We have to act on that knowledge if we do not want to go through the evolutionary cycle again. The truth sets you free from the animal cycle.

Time machine: If you could get in a time machine and go back in time at the rate of one hundred years per second, you would only be mankind for about two minutes and in a human body for about twenty minutes.

For the next thirteen-point-eight (13.8) hours, you would be in the body of apes and monkeys. After you go back about seven and a half days, at one hundred years per second, you would be in the body of a dinosaur. For the rest of the next twenty five years going back at the rate of one hundred years per second, you would be in an animal body that is below the dinosaur level. Most of the time, you would be living in the ocean, mostly as a form of bacteria.

The rock at the top of Mount Everest is marine limestone created by the shells of trillions of creatures that died at the bottom of the ocean. We were there when that rock formed. Some of those shells could be our shells.

That rock moved from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the highest mountain at about one inch per year. We were evolving during that same time into humans. All we were was food in the food chain until just recently. You have been eaten alive millions of times by every species of predator that ever lived.

Sharks: If you believe a man/God exists, he must have liked sharks the best, because they have been on earth for over four hundred and fifty-million years, longer than any other vertebrate. The cockroach has lived unchanged for over three hundred million years.

Cavemen: Neanderthals lived on this earth for two hundred and fifty-thousand years longer than modern humans, and at least forty times longer than mankind. If a man/God created all this, the evidence shows he really liked brutal, animal-like cavemen. Was he watching those savage brutes all that time?

Fifteen-million years ago, the king of all sharks lived. It had the most powerful bite of any animal. It was called a Megalodon, and was the size of a jumbo jet. It lived in all the world’s oceans for millions of years longer than humans have been here. They were the top predator, just as we are now. We lived in that world.

We were them and their prey, mostly whales. Our spirit went from predator to prey and back again for million of years. Our spirit bounced back and forth from predator to prey and species to species as we evolved.


Those dinosaur bones we are always digging up were part of someone’s body that lived a long time ago. It is no different than digging up the skeleton of a human that lived long ago. Bones are proof of a living being that lived before. A million years from now, someone could dig up the bones that are in our bodies now. Would people understand that they belonged to someone that really lived? Would they understand that the bones could have been theirs? Would they realize that they could be digging up their own bones from another life they lived?

100% of the evidence says it is true. There is no other evidence, period.

We have thousands of museums of natural history filled with the hard evidence of our evolution, and there is no hard evidence that anything else happened.

Rational mind: A rational mind is the only thing that separates us from the lower animals. If we do not use it, we are not using what makes us special and superior to other animals. We are giving up what makes us different from other animals. If you do not use the rational mind, you are not using the one thing you need to use to learn the truth and take the next step in evolution. Reason is what we gained in our last step in evolution. It is what makes us mankind. We now have to use it to take the next step and become spiritual beings. Use it or lose it.

When literally all of the evidence says evolution is true, and there is zero-percent hard evidence for anything else, a rational, honest person has to accept the fact that we came from lower animals. It is what a rational mind would conclude.

If you do not have a rational mind, that is what is not right, not evolution.

The evidence is sacred: It is the most sacred thing that there is, because it reveals the truth, and that is the truth. The truth reveals true life and sets you free.

God is the evidence; the evidence is God.

The evidence: The bones are found on our planet in the dirt we now walk on, and we know their age for certain. Their ages fit perfectly with how long it would take to evolve from them to us. Everything adds up perfectly. The bones are from animals that are in our direct genetic line. We are genetically less than two-percent different from chimpanzees. We are genetically connected to all animal life that ever lived on this planet, including the bacteria living by those hot vents in the ocean.

Dinosaurs had two eyes, a brain, backbones, a heart, lungs, a stomach, blood, a mouth, a nose, two ears, and four limbs. They had the same basics we have now as humans. They slept, ate, mated, and were born and died, just as we do now.

Different: Most people are doing the same things; what makes them different? We can and must do what they did, but we must also do what only we can do to make us truly different. When we really do, we really leave the animal realm.

The evidence says that we were them, that we evolved from them. There is no evidence that we come from somewhere else. Thus, we have to conclude it is true until there is some better evidence that we came from somewhere else.

Everything in this book just says what the evidence says, what God says.

There will never be any other evidence, because it would have to say the bones were planted just to fool us, and that makes no sense at all. We all know what the truth is; we are just in denial. The truth is the truth, and it is what sets you free.

We know we walked the earth in the bodies of dinosaurs for eight hundred times longer than we have been in human bodies.


This is the first book about physical and spiritual truth based on reality.

There are many books about what is true, but this is the first one that just says what the evidence says is true. The truth is reality; nothing more, nothing less.

It is estimated that there are about ten million species of animals on earth. There may be as many as one hundred million species. We are just one of them.

The truth is just what it looks like it is. How could it be anything else?

The truth is, human beings are a small new twig on our evolutionary tree.

Our spirit was not just the twig, it has been the whole tree of life on this planet.

This is important news to people, but most will deny their true past.

Human beings are just one of millions of different species of life on earth. We are nothing special in the eyes of creation. We are just legions in our own minds and have created myths to glorify ourselves, not God. Are we intelligent beings?

We are special in the sense that we have a rational mind, but that is not a big deal, especially if you misuse it and spread deception, or do not use it at all.

The life of all animals below humans is fundamentally the same.

The creator has favored other life forms much more than human beings. Bacteria is by far the predominate life form on the planet. It is really their planet. Microbial life has been here longest, and there are more of them than anything else now.

If mankind destroys itself, bacteria will survive and evolution will start over.

Bacteria are becoming resistant to all of our antibiotic drugs and may kill mankind off in the near future. We should put more money into winning that future war.

We are not more powerful than them. We have the brains, but they have the numbers. Their numbers could easily prevail over our intelligence if we do not start putting more of our resources into countering this coming war. It will be a real contest between David and Goliath, and the little guy won in that story.

Out of sight may be out of mind, but the truth is, bacteria are everywhere, alive and conscious of life, just as we are. If you look through a microscope at them, you can see for yourself. They eat and digest food, are born, die, reproduce, sleep, and avoid aversive stimuli just as we do. What makes us different, our minds? Right now we use our minds to fight wars, to destroy the environment, and to deceive ourselves. If anything, we are using our minds to be less than they are. At least they live in the present and are more aware of life than mankind is now.

The only real difference is that we can be different if we learn the ultimate truth. We are different only in knowledge and the ability to understand the world around us. If we do nothing with it, we are no different at all, and we will remain as animals, but not at the top of the food chain. The wheel of life keeps turning.

Put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him. Colossians 3:10


We are different only in knowledge and the ability to understand the world around us. If we do nothing with it, we are no different at all and will stay an animal.

Waste our advantage: Being thinking creatures is just a small difference, but this small difference can make all the difference if we use it. This is why we do not want to waste our intelligence believing that myths are the truth. It makes our greater intelligence useless and makes us no better than any other animal. If we are not any better than an animal, we will continue to be one.

See clearly: Evolution in action is the most terrifying thing there is. Nature is beautiful, but it is also a slaughter house, eat and be eaten. When everyone really sees animal nature for what it is, it will scare people into becoming something other than an animal. True knowledge of nature will evolve us out of it. Knowledge of nature, evolution, and our true past makes it possible to leave the animal realm.

The wheel of life: You have been where life has been in the past. You had to be there to be where you are now; we evolved from them. You will be there again unless you become a spiritual being and leave the animal evolutionary cycle. A life form only gets to be on top so long, as the wheel of life keeps turning.

Rare/lucky: There are more bacteria on your skin and inside your body than there are human beings on the whole planet. This fact should emphasize just how rare and lucky it is to be human. You can check this is true for yourself.

If there is a man/God in the sky, he liked all the other forms we were in more than our current form. The dinosaurs, the ultimate in fang and claw, walked the same earth we are now walking for at least forty thousand times longer than human beings have. We walked, swam, and crawled for a lot longer in other bodies.

The truth is the truth you can check, and it is the truth that sets you free.

Deny the evidence: If you deny the evidence, you are denying the truth/God. Some people believe the evidence was planted to fool the rational, honest people. Religious people will say anything to hang on to the myths, even that the evidence of the past was planted by God to test peoples’ faith in the Bible. We need to fight for the truth as hard as they fight for the myths to win the battle for the minds of the human race. We have the evidence on our side, so we will win.

The truth is what it looks like it is, and all honest, rational people know it.

The truth is no fairytale. It was inconceivably long and brutal and should scare the hell out of you. The Bible says fear is the beginning of wisdom.

Coincidence: The Biblical and historical descriptions of hell are just too close to the way the actual bottom of the evolutionary cycle is to be just a coincidence.

It has to be the work of the collective unconscious, and this is proof it exists. It managed to get the truth in religious books, like the Bible, before the people who lived when it was written had any possibility of knowing the truth. It is a sign to show mankind the truth now as to the existence of an intelligence outside of us.


The truth is in the Bible: This proves the collective unconscious exists, and that it is trying to tell us the ultimate truth with what is written in religious books.

The Bible is tangible proof that there is a subconscious force in our lives.

Son of man: It is interesting that the Bible refers to Jesus as the “son of man” many times more than it refers to him as the son of God. The accepted story of Jesus is that he was the son of God, not the son of man.

Which is it: the son of God or the son of man?

Why is it even in the Bible? It contradicts the story. It is a sign for us to discover when we can understand its meaning. Religious books are full of signs.

You become the son of man if you give birth to yourself.

If you interpret “son of man” literally, that is the only thing it can mean. When you are born again in your current body, you become the son of man, the son of your own mind, the son of yourself. You become what the Bible says Jesus was.

Jesus said you must be born again to see heaven.

Jesus said you must be born of spirit to get to heaven.

When you learn the truth and the life, you become the offspring or creation of yourself, your own mind. Thus, you literally become the son of man.

Jesus said, “Only men not born of woman will see heaven.”

There are two signs in the following quote from the Bible: “Behold the man has become as one of us to know good and evil, now lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat and live forever.”

Become as one of us: Why is that in the Bible? It basically says there is more than one god, and we can be one. It is exactly the opposite of what people believe the Bible says. They believe there is only one God, and the best we can do is live in his kingdom.

“And GOD said, LET US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness.” Genesis 1:26

Could it be more clear? Can you see what the Bible says?

All the semitic religions, Jews, Christians, and Muslims, believe in the old testament of the Bible and are monotheists. They believe in one God, so why is that verse at the beginning of Genesis, the very first book of the Bible? When something is there that should not be, it is a sign that shows us the way.

Signs: There can only be one reason the signs are there. It has to be the work of the collective unconscious to show us the truth, to show us the way. It is hidden truth, a sign for us to see now that the time is right to see it and understand it. A sign is something that should not be there, but is. That is what makes it stand out to those that are aware enough to see them. A sign from the collective unconscious is just like a road sign that shows you the way to go.

Many more: The signs I have revealed here are just the most obvious signs in the Bible to show there are signs. They point the way to other hidden truth in the Bible and other religious writings. There is hidden truth all throughout the Bible.


Creation vs. evolution: Creationists argue that life is too complicated for it to have just happened, and they are right. There is intelligent design, but the designer is not an old man that lives in the sky. There is no evidence that the intelligence comes from a living being. The too complicated argument is flawed, because the creator would have to be more complicated than the creation. What created the creator? If you are going to say something always existed, why not just accept that creation always existed? We know it exists, but there is no evidence that an old man in the sky or any all-powerful life form exists.

The creationists argue that evolution has some missing links in the fossil evidence, and they would be right, but no one would expect for there not to be a few missing things. We are lucky we have evidence for most of it. We may or may not find all the evidence, but it does not matter. A few minor things missing does not change the fact that there is overwhelming evidence that the theory of evolution is true. In the DNA evidence, there is nothing missing.

The creationists are saying that evidence matters, yet they have absolutely no evidence to support their mythical theories. Creationists must not see how stupid they look when they argue against hard scientific evidence and logic. They are not helping their interpretation of religion with their irrational arguments. They say the few missing bits of evidence mean evolution is not true, so they are admitting that evidence matters, yet they have none to support their theories. The interesting thing is that the truth is actually in the Bible, but the people that are currently into religion do not know what it is. The truth is, evolution and creation both happened and are happening right now.

Science and religion are both right.

The Bible says, “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.”

It is a good example of a statement in the Bible that contains the truth and also hides it and misleads people. Most people have taken that sentence to mean that everything that is said in the Bible is the word of God. The truth is, all the words in the Bible come from men who were not inspired prophets, and they could not help but misinterpret them.

The beginning or creation of mankind did come with the word or words.

Human beings began to speak and think in words about ten thousand years ago, about the same time the Bible says creation happened. A coincidence?


The Bible says the word became flesh. In other words, the mind became flesh. It did when the mind took complete control of our bodies.

The story in the Bible of the beginning is actually the story of the end. It says “the word was God,” so that means God will become flesh; it will now.

“In the beginning was the word.” It was the beginning of mankind, of mind kind. The mind of mankind did not exist before words, thoughts in words, and most importantly, inspiration. Once the mind learns the truth, it merges with God’s mind.

The word “inspiration” means breath of life. The Bible says God created man by breathing into Adam’s nose, giving him the breath of life. In other words, God gave the intellect to human beings and made it possible for humans to receive knowledge from outside themselves. This changed human beings into mankind. When humans became intelligent, inspired beings, mind-kind was created.

The Bible was right again; God/life created our world, the world of mankind, about ten-thousand years ago in the Middle East. Creation and evolution both happened; science and religion are both right as to the creation of mankind.

Human beings have been on earth for about two hundred thousand years, but mankind was created about ten thousand years ago, as the Bible says.

The famous painting of creation that Michelangelo painted on the Sistine Chapel ceiling has a recently discovered hidden sign in it.

The picture depicts God reaching out his hand to Adam, and people have always interpreted it as the moment God gave man life.

Now we can see that the picture of God is also a picture of the human brain. It can only mean one thing; that God is giving Adam the intellect, or mind.

Michelangelo did not do it; the Holy Spirit did it for us. Click on the link below.

Intelligent design: Evolution and intelligent design both happened and are both happening now. The universal mind found in our collective unconscious is the intelligence in nature.

Darwin: Darwin was right; we evolved, but there is the collective unconscious factor that gives intelligence to random selection and survival of the fittest. It is not a thinking and emotional man/God that supplies the intelligence, but there is an intelligence working in concert with the balancing force.

Intelligent design as interpreted by religion is false, but it does exist.

Intelligent design = the collective unconscious = the Holy Spirit.


This intelligence is very subtle in nature, almost imperceptible, except in the progression of life towards more intelligent life forms. It progresses very slowly, but intelligently, until it reaches the top of the animal cycle (mankind).

Intelligent design worked very slowly when it could only influence life biologically. Now that it can work in intelligent beings (mankind), it is working faster and faster. The more intelligent we get, the more intelligence we can and do receive.

The intelligence is easy to see in us. It can be seen in every inspired work we have done and started about ten thousand years ago when mankind evolved.

Words, language, and thought evolved to a point that we connected to the collective unconscious at the level of our modern minds for the first time. This made it possible to receive knowledge through inspirations and logic.

Inspired beings: This source of new knowledge transformed us into inspired beings, into mankind. The inspirations made all the technical progress in the last ten thousand years possible. We did not become mankind or mindkind until we connected with the universal mind; I call it the collective unconscious or Holy Spirit.

Before it happened, human beings were no different from other animals.

The cusp: Something happened about ten thousand years ago that changed everything. It was the start of humans living in one place, in towns and cities. It was the start of a primitive civilization.

It was also the start of agriculture, domestication of animals, and farms. It was the end of the hunter-gatherer way of life humans lived for the previous one hundred and ninety thousand years. It was the start of a completely new life form.

Technical progress did not start until about ten thousand years ago. We went from hunter-gatherers to where we are now in the evolutionary blink of an eye.

Critical mass: About five to six thousand years ago, the mind reached a critical mass. Warfare and other factors forced people to leave smaller villages and group together in larger cities, mainly because of the need for large armies. This put our technological progress in high gear. Written language began, the large monuments like pyramids were built, and armies started roaming the earth.

It was the start of what we call modern civilization.

We evolved and progressed more in the last ten thousand years than we did in the previous seven hundred million. We had to become a new life form to do it.

Human beings became a fundamentally new life form.

We became a new life form in a very short period of time, and the same thing is happening again, only a lot faster. Mankind has reached a new cusp, the end of one life form and the beginning of another.


Inner change: We gained the power to change our outside environment about ten thousand years ago, and over that time, we have changed it to suit our needs. We now have to change our inner environment, our minds.

Son of mind: We need to become the son of man as Jesus says, be reborn as the sons of our own minds. When we do it, we take the next and last step in our evolution and create a heaven on earth. It is all in the Bible.

Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3

Jesus said, “Except a man be born of the spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.” John 3:5

Jesus said, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the spirit is spirit.” John 3:6

Final step: About two hundred thousand years ago, we took our first real step away from the animal realm, the realm of flesh, and became human beings (homo sapiens). About ten thousand years ago, we took the second step and became mankind (mind-kind). Now, we are about to take the third and final step.

Spiritual beings: Mankind is about to accomplish what it evolved to do. The human race is going to change into a new human life form for the third time. We will evolve from mankind or mind-kind to Godkind. We will become spiritual beings.

The Bible says we will become new creatures in Christ.

If you believe the Bible, that is what it says is happening. If you do not believe in the Bible, just believe your own eyes; you can see it happening.

What Jesus says: Most religious people think that they can never be like Jesus, that the best we can do is be one of God’s subjects in his kingdom after we die. It is not what Jesus says. He says if you learn the truth, you will be just like him.

Jesus said, “He who drinks from my mouth will become as I am and I will become he and the hidden things will be revealed to him.”

The Bible says, all that is hidden will be revealed. Matthew 10:26

Arrogance: People think, how can anyone be so arrogant to believe they can be like God? The opposite is the truth. Thinking the ultimate power in the universe has nothing better to do than listen to your prayers is the ultimate arrogance.

Revelation 4 (NRSV)

Throne-Vision and Seven Seals:

At this point, we enter a new phase in the unfolding drama, as John is caught up to heaven and granted privileged access to the heavenly throne-room. This vision (which continues into chapter 5) inaugurates the opening of the seven seals (6:1-8:1), just as the vision of the exalted Christ in chapter 1 introduced the seven messages. Thus 4:1-8:1 forms the second great cycle of sevens in Revelation. But it is no less crucial for understanding the remaining visions of the book, acting as the orienting vision for the whole of chapters 4-22. In these remaining chapters, a kaleidoscope of images and symbols will flash before the mind’s eye, presenting from different perspectives the character of the battle described in the preceding seven messages. Revelation 4-5 provides as it were the appropriate perspective from which to view and make sense of what is happening on earth. Here is a drawing back of the curtain which normally restricts humanity’s view of the heavenly realm. John, and those privileged to hear his Apocalypse, are enabled to see the world in a radically new light.

The Heavenly Worship

“Surely that which occupies the total time and energies of heaven must be a fitting pattern for earth.” –Paul E. Billheimer

After this I looked, and there in heaven a door stood open! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the spirit, and there in heaven stood a throne, with one seated on the throne! And the one seated there looks like jasper and carnelian, and around the throne is a rainbow that looks like an emerald. Around the throne are twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones are twenty-four elders, dressed in white robes, with golden crowns on their heads. Coming from the throne are flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne burn seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God; and in front of the throne there is something like a sea of glass, like crystal.

“A door stood open.” Heaven is where God is acknowledged as King, and where true worship occurs. But far from being separated from this world, it is intimately connected to it, for what is seen in heaven either has been or will be played out on earth. Doors into heaven can be opened wherever God’s people are, though particularly when they are gathered for the eucharistic liturgy (3:20). Heaven is never far away, for those with the eyes to see.

–Ian Boxall

Around the throne, and on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with a face like a human face, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and inside. Day and night without ceasing they sing,

“Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God the Almighty, who was and is and is to come.”

And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to the one who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall before the one who is seated on the throne and worship the one who lives forever and ever; they cast their crowns before the throne, singing,

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
