When not blogging the news as relates to scripture and prophecy, I try to stay busy with reading, studying (my Bible), and artsy things such as my jewelry-making, decoupage, and (though it’s been a while), also painting. I enjoy taking everyday stuff, or old stuff and re-purposing it. I get my inspiration from God and the way he takes us as we are, and takes painful and difficult circumstances, and works all of that into something that is new and good. I like to see what creative uses other people do to find for what otherwise might just end up in a land fill. A good place to find those types of things without leaving home, is on eBay. I enjoy schlepping around in second-hand stores and junk shops like many folks do, but it can be tiresome and expensive, thus these eBay jaunts are a way of doing it without leaving the comfort of home. Window shopping, picker style.
I don’t write many totally original posts during summer, but am always observing. You have to be a “noticer”, and see things most people simply don’t see, if you want to have something interesting to write about.
So, yesterday on eBay, I was browsing in art. Last year I made a nifty little thing, inspired by the new shape of the Scope® mouthwash bottle, by encasing it in clay, and embedding it with loose jewels (harvested from discarded costume jewelry). Turns out this is an art form that actually has a name. As a sub-category of folk art, this is a “tramp art” specialty referred to as a “memory bottle”. Who knew? Perhaps I was a hobo in former life. (Kidding!), although I do have a great fondness for Emmett Kelly, come to think of it. (source)
Anyway, I saw something truly disturbing for sale on eBay amongst other folk art. I debated whether to write about it, but as often happens, some other things came together this morning in the reading I do for this blog, and I saw a post “coming together”. You see, there is a great demand for miniatures of all sorts, among collectors, for doll houses, and such, and doll collectors themselves. Since the advent of Sculpey™ this art form is pretty affordable and some folks have found they have a great knack for mini (and even micro-mini) sculptures of babies, newborns, preemies, and of course all the “pretend” accoutrements that go with a real baby. Some of these extremely detailed but short stature works (we’re talking an inch and less) go for hundreds of dollars. Details down to weensie toe-nails, real glued-on-a-strand-at-a-time wispy baby hair, etc. There are others who do pets and other animals, but, and here is the thing, what I saw last night really creeped me out. This one was a hybrid!
Let me fist say that this artist is clearly extremely talented, and I am no way implying that there is anything inherently evil about his/her creativity. I am sure there are any number of people who would buy this and see it as merely quirky-cute. I do not know whether the artist is aware that there are actual chimeras of this sort that have been created by scientists in labs by combining the DNA of two or more kinds of animal DNA or the DNA of animals with humans. Not all of the listings were of this sort, others were normal cute babies. But there was another one I found even more disturbing than this one, because it looked like a hybrid/alien baby with blue skin like the mutant in X-Men or the aliens in Avatar (the movie) . I guess it is the combination of the innocence of a baby, with these other, less-innocent entities. This and similar offerings by other sellers, are categorized in eBay under “reborns”. The listing itself referred to this particular work using several words:
REBORN HYBRID PREEMIE PIGLET MYTHICAL BABY ALIEN ART DOLL OOAK PIG AVATAR
In Hinduism, an Avatar is a deity that purposely descends to earth. An avatar in computer gaming, is defined as an electronic image which is a representation of someone playing the game. An embodiment of some principle, or a human incarnation of someone. (Most know OOAK means one of a kind, the rest of the terms speak for themselves).
Perhaps this artist is a lover of all things Sci-Fi. Many people are. Science fiction, though, has a tendency to become science fact. Or maybe I should use the phrase the Bible uses, “science, falsely-so-called”. Because science of this sort veers over into something altogether different when it ceases to be fiction. And I am not even referring to the morality of these real-life experiments. Because it ceases to be theory when real tissue of real humans are merged with that of animals. The resulting “creature” is no longer fully human.
The world we live in today, and the things we see taking place, well, my grandmother’s generation could not even have imagined the developments of this generation. My parents barely could, and it’s getting kind of hard for me too, at this point. America was a Christian nation at one time, but not now. Oh, there are more people than ever who refer to themselves as Christians, but the term has taken on a different meaning. Like a lot of terms these days. There seems to be an intentional move toward making all things that once were considered absolute, into some fuzzy vague, and into some “evolving” other. Be it our words, or our designations/concepts like male and female.
In my quiet time on Tuesday, I was reading in Matthew 10 and 11, where Jesus gave the twelve disciples power against unclean spirits, and warned them of coming persecution, setting them forth as “sheep in the midst of wolves”, and instructing them to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves”, that they would be “hated of all men for His name’s sake” but that even though brother would be against brother, and children against fathers, that every hair on their head is numbered, and if not even a sparrow falls to the ground without His Father’s notice, aren’t they of more value than many sparrows?”. As I meditated on those things, I thought of how jealous the enemy is. Satan is so jealous that God loves mankind and has made such a great sacrifice for us. God created everything else, then He created man. And last of all, the “crowning glory” of His creation, was woman. I think Satan is particularly jealous of woman. I think he was the most beautiful created being up until then. And I can’t help but wonder if that is why the ultimate depravity, the one that actually is a curse in and of itself, is the turning of affections of men to other men. A feminization of men. And then the ensuing extreme, of “even women, giving up the natural use, burning in lust one for another. (Romans 1:26-28). Thus when a society begins to embrace homosexuality, the way America is now doing, this is a sign of a curse and indicates their wickedness and rebellion is so extreme, that they must be destroyed. I imagine Satan loves this. He loves to distort what God made. And he certainly loves destruction.
God made distinctions in His creation, and He made them for good reason. If all the men in the world were gay, and all the women in the world were lesbians, there would be no new babies. Of course, other than the kind that can be cobbled together genetically in the lab, like the pig-baby. I don’t believe those creatures have a soul. How could they? They are spare parts put together, and yes, though they contain within themselves (in the DNA) all the information to form the physical, a soul is a creation man has not figured out.
What is happening to our world? Communism/humanism seeks the end of “family” and also of religion. Did you know one principle of Marxism (Communist Manifesto) is to destroy all beauty in art? Have you noticed how kids cartoons today don’t have cute little kids, beautiful flowers and doe-eyed baby animals any more, so much as Frankenstein-like zombies or hybrid creatures without symmetry? Marx in his poem “God-like” writes that he plans to : “wander Godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world… I will feel equal to the Creator” That sounds a little bit like “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” which were Satan’s words, according to the prophet Isaiah. (14:13-14) The sin of Satan: I would be like God”. The sin of Adam and Eve in the garden was the same, they ate the fruit and became “like God” in knowledge of good and of evil.
This world is definitely moving in a direction that disdains making any distinction between the sexes. There are even new words to replace he/she. Yep, a school in Vancouver last month, submits that we should lob off the h and sh in he, and she, and replace them both with an “x” and call everyone “xe”. I don’t even know how you could pronounce that. Will the world do what they did with Prince? The pronoun formerly known as “he”. (or “she”)??? How confusing! Ah, but that is the goal!
Despite the fact that there are not nearly as many who identify as gay as has been claimed, there does seem to be a disproportionate but definite move to legitimize and embrace the lifestyle, but it is more than that, there seems to be a real surge in gender issues. I can’t even count how many times this year I have read about children, very young, supposedly “self-identifying” as “internally not the gender they were physically born as” and adults, encouraging this nonsense!. And even one set of parents who gave their child a gender-neutral name and refused to answer the question “is it a boy or a girl” for anyone. I am not sure what got marked on the birth certificate, but it won’t be long until marking anything regarding gender, will probably be outlawed at this rate. And then there is Conchita Worst. Face of a man, hair of a woman….something familiar about that phrase too. Revelation 9:7-8, the locusts that rise up out of the bottomless pit have those two features.

The word Chimera originally referred to a mythical figure in Greek mythology. The creature breathed fire, had the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a snake. The animal is referred to as female, but is also a hermaphrodite. Hmmm. What do we think of when we think of a creature that “breathes fire? A dragon perhaps? In the Bible, who is symbolized sometimes as a dragon? Satan. There are a couple of lions in scripture too. There is Christ the Messiah, Lion of Judah. But there is also a lion who “goes to and fro through out the Earth, seeking whom he may devour”. And we know him as? Satan. The Free Masons refer to ‘god” as G.A.O.T. the “great architect of the universe”. He has another name; Baphomet. (who has breasts like a woman, serpents rising up from his, ahem, groin area, horns like a goat, one pair pointing up, another down (as above, so below), and all sorts of other symbolism. The goats are distinguished from the sheep in scripture. Sheep belong to the Lord, the goats belong to their father, the devil. Satan. And of course the serpent in the garden of Eden, was Satan. So this Chimera critter is kind of familiar after all, even if you aren’t into Greek mythology. That would make him a hybrid, would it not? All those different animals in one being.
Here is Baphomet
Bear with me now, I will tie it all together.
This morning I read an article about the Satanic Black Mass that Satanists want to enact in the Oklahoma Civic Center on September 21. Now, 21 is the occult number of destruction. September 21 is a particularly significant date for the Illuminati. It is “Mabon”. A “holiday” of human sacrifice. From this date through Halloween, occultists believe that the veil separating the earthly dimension from the demonic spiritual realm thins out, and is the thinnest on October 31. This, they believe, makes it a perfect time for demonic entities to cross over to the physical Earthly realm. So, it would seem that the video comparing these ice bucket challenges to a baptismal preparation of some kind, may have merit. As I mentioned yesterday, and it’s been all over the news, mainstream and alternative, the “terror threat” is rising off the charts right now. Be it a “false flag” or what, doesn’t really matter, some will blame terrorists, some will blame the government, and illuminati, and all of them will be right, sort of. You see, these are all just extensions of power. What is really behind it all are spiritual forces. The Bible says our struggle is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual darkness in high places. High places in the Bible always refer to dominion.
The quote that jumped out at me from the article from the Christian Post was this one, spoken by one of those who planned to attend the Black Mass:
“We are devil worshippers, we are not spiritual satanists,” Daniels told CP. “We believe in Angra Mainyu that is the original devil from Persia.”
That fellow was making an important, crucial distinction about who he and others will be “invoking” and worshipping at this particular black mass!!!
Now, if you read my post yesterday, and watched the video, Fire and Ice Precede the Great Sacrifice Coming to America, in which evangelist Anita Fuentes talks about the “baptism” symbolism behind the ALS ice bucket challenge and the previous fire challenge she touched on, this post ought to really stir up some conviction about what might be in store for us here in America in this month of September and beyond.
In Zoroastrianism, Angra Mainyu is none other than “The destructive spirit”.
From Encyclopedia Britannica:
Ahriman, Avestan Angra Mainyu (“Destructive Spirit”), the evil spirit in the dualistic doctrine of Zoroastrianism. His essential nature is expressed in his principal epithet—Druj, “the Lie.” The Lie expresses itself as greed, wrath, and envy. To aid him in attacking the light, the good creation of Ahura Mazdā, the Wise Lord, Ahriman created a horde of demons embodying envy and similar qualities. Despite the chaos and suffering effected in the world by his onslaught, believers expect Ahriman to be defeated in the end of time by Ahura Mazdā. Confined to their own realm, his demons will devour each other, and his own existence will be quenched.
*(Bold emphasis by this author, S.T. Lloyd)
Not only is the date for this Black Mass very significant, so is the location! Oklahoma sits on the 35th parallel. The Babylonian and Syrian moon god of old is named “Sin”. The 35th parallel runs through Syria, Iraq, and Iran (Persia).
You’d be surprised by the “connections” to certain numbers/degrees and what is located there: for example some other interesting “coincidences” of shared latitude: Phoenix,(rise from the ashes) Arizona is in the 33rd parallel. (Thirty-three degrees of Freemasonry), and so is Washington D.C., and Damascus in Syria, The Denver International Airport, you know, the one with all the creepy murals and the underground bunkers, is on the 36th parallel. But I am getting off topic now.
I think that Anita Fuentes may have been right on target. There is too much converging for this not to be significant. The previous black mass that was scheduled by Satanists was to be at Harvard on May 12 of this year, but was cancelled. May 12 is not a significant date for the occult that I know of, other than it being the 133rd day of the year if it is a leap year, which 2014 is not.
Anyway, I don’t claim that all of these “coincidental” things are responsible for, nor do they predict what is to take place in this world, but rather I always find it interesting to see that there is a certain “predictability” or pattern to even events that seem random. I think it points to the very fact that God is a God of systematic order and that Satan, who wishes to overthrow him, is capable of nothing new, though he does try to be thorough in his counterfeiting.
It saddens me to see this glorification of things in the world that are reprobate according to God’s standards. It is a clear indication of the direction the world is traveling, that of greater and greater evil.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually and it repented the Lord (made Him sorry) and grieved Him at HIs heart.
Last time, He purged the world with a “baptism” of water, in a flood that destroyed all but Noah and his family (eight humans) and the animals God supernatural sent to fill the ark.
Next time it will be by fire. After the tribulation.
You see, water doesn’t really purify. But fire does!
Obedience, good works, don’t really “clean us up of our sin” but the pure and sinless blood of Jesus shed on the cross, did and does, and will, until that final one who is willing to be redeemed, is redeemed, and then God will take HIs church, the Bride of Christ in scriptural terms, out of this world.
This tide of rising evil, this soon thinning of the division between the physical and spiritual realm, has nothing to do with Halloween or rituals or “magic numbers”. A transformation is coming. Some people think we are already in the tribulation. Some think that Christians are all going to be here and are spending all their time and money right now on trying to store up guns, ammunition, food, items that might come in handy for bartering when things get so bad that money is worthless, and so is gold and silver. If that is what you believe, then you really don’t understand how horrific the tribulation is going to be. All your time and money would be much better invested in getting people saved. If survivalism is what your church, or your spiritual leaders are telling you to concentrate on, all I can say is get away from them and get alone with the Lord and your Bible. Ask God. He did not make the Bible difficult to understand. But He made it impossible to understand the Bible “in the flesh”. Speaking to Christians Jesus said (Romans 8:9) “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And by the way, that verse alone proves false the claim that “receiving the Spirit is a separate event from salvation” as some claim. If you don’t understand the Bible, perhaps you were never saved. And right now is a very crucial time to be sure. There is a wickedness that is rising. It will culminate in the arrival of the Antichrist. When he comes on the scene, it is going to be too late for you, if you put off your salvation now.
2 Thessalonians 2:
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
