In this chapter we're going to take a closer look at the occult symbolism connected to Al Denson and Kay Arthur. Keep in mind, there are dozens (and probably hundreds) more examples of this strange phenomenon.
We would run out of time and space. I seek only to briefly familiarize the reader to these bizarre scenarios, utilizing a mere handful of specific examples, before moving on...in making an attempt to understand the 'big picture' of what this all means and what actually may be behind this covert occultism.
Again, feel free to postpone any dire conclusions regarding Arthur or Denson. You can form your own conclusions at your own pace.
A few months ago (December '07) I was standing in a large book store looking at the cover of this Kay Arthur book, "Lord, Heal My Hurts" (shown below) when all of a sudden I noticed something that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
There was a particular reason I was even at this bookstore looking for Kay Arthur material. I'll get to that in a minute.
But as I looked closely at the 'running man' depiction on the cover, I scoured the artwork for any signs of hidden symbolism. (From previous experience with this "covert occultism" phenomenon, I knew that any hidden symbolism would likely also be occult symbolism.)
Then I noticed it (and maybe by now, you have too):
Staring back at me was this gigantic "Eye of Ra" or "All-seeing Eye" formed by the head of the running man (which becomes the pupil of the eye) and his uplifted arms, combined with the curvature of the top part of the circle. The effect is completed with a series of triangles (occult symbols in their own right) which create the 'eyelashes'...and there is even another line drawn in to create an "eyelid" effect.
Here again was this coded equation that we saw with the Smith CD (Eye + triangle = Eye of Horus). The depiction of the Eye on Arthur's book cover occurs twice-- once as a backdrop to the title lettering, and again in the foreground, in multi-color. It is clear to me, there is intentional visual misdirection going on here, by means of the 'running man' depiction.
This is deceptive, secretive, camouflaged Luciferian symbolism. Nothing short of it.
So, here was this huge occult symbol smack on the cover of a popular book by noted Evangelical author and teacher Kay Arthur. No matter how often this has happened to me, time and again I am startled and temporarily shaken to see these disguised occult symbols popping up on the published materials of Evangelical luminaries. It's hard to believe.
And why was I looking for clues specifically with regard to Kay Arthur? A couple months before, I happened to briefly watch a portion of a telecast of Kay Arthur's program and I had immediately noticed a conspicuous painting hung on the wall of the TV studio, over Ms. Arthur's right shoulder. If you look carefully at the screen shot of this telecast, I think you are seeing a good example of what I have previously decribed as-- "modified" symbolism.
The arch of the bridge (in the painting), combined with the mirror image of the arch...didn't look quite right to me. In fact, the mirror image "arch" seems to have been subtly shifted so as to create a rather striking approximation of an eye shape...or so it seemed to me. And arguably (or so I thought) if you 'squint' your eyes a bit...it almost looked as though a very fuzzy "iris" had been painted into the "eye" as well.
The fact that this painting was conspicuously positioned over her right shoulder and remained visible during the entirety of the telecast--it switched on my 'early warning' lights, so to speak.
Of course, I formed no conclusions at that point. However...having now come across this book cover with the disguised Eye of Ra and the "running man" visual misdirection...and in the overall context of this "hidden symbolism" phenomenon...common sense dictated there be a connecting of the dots.
And it turns out there are many other disguised and/or coded symbols in connection with Arthur's published materials. Notice the book cover below "Israel, My Beloved"--yet another Arthur publication. Keeping in mind, the idea of 'disguised', 'camouflaged' and/or 'modified' occult symbolism...the front cover of this book seems to have another of these disguised eye/triangle things going on. Notice the one eye peering from the background...framed within triangular shaping.
When you see what is otherwise such a skillful and beautiful painting...but where the artist has nevertheless depicted this rather creepy and conspicuously awkward single eye peering out from this book cover...even apart from knowledge of occult symbolism, this seems quite odd and out of sync.
The back cover of this book (below) is even more obvious. Notice the very clearly depicted eye+triangle. (The woman peeking from behind the red-headed woman.)
What I also noticed...and this is something you may not understand for another couple chapters...is that Arthur incorporates Masonic occult symbolism. Of course, the All-seeing Eye is a central symbol to Freemasonry. But the Masons have a good number of other semi-secret symbols. Kay Arthur's official logo incorporates a plumb-bob. This is one of the classic Masonic symbols.
Without other 'dots' to connect, the observation about this supposed 'Masonic' plumb-bob might be construed as a bit weak. But then I noticed on the "Lord, I Want To Know You" book cover (below) that Arthur utilizes the Masonic "ladder leaning on thin air" concept--the ladder supposedly is to be climbed towards "enlightenment" (if you are familiar with Masonic doctrines).
This seems to be yet more evidence from Arthur...of bizarre and covert allegiances. Or at the least...these indications are coming from sinister figures who have surrounded Arthur and/or work in close proximity to her.
Below, we see a cover of one of Arthur's books. Below that, a Masonic painting:
In the above Masonic painting you can see this distinctive "ladder leaning on thin air" (which Kay Arthur appears to have replicated on her book cover) and many other important Masonic symbols. Link
THE "INFINITY" SYMBOL
Similar to Smith, Kay Arthur's publications also frequently incorporate the "infinity" occult symbol. This symbol looks like a 'sideways' figure eight.
It appears these book covers are, in fact, displaying the infinity symbol. The book cover on the top displays an unmistakable symbol. The book below that is a little more subtle. If you look carefully, in the background behind the title lettering, there is a modified version of the infinity symbol, slightly out of focus.
Also, left of the letter "L" and to the right of the letter "Y" there are those green hearts with the attached infinity symbols.
And you may have never realized this but the classic "heart" shape also comes directly out of the occult world. It is one of the typical symbols of Rosicrucianism...Rosicrucianism being just another thinly disguised version of occultism/
Here are a couple of examples of Rosicrucian designs--a Rosicrucian banner, and a book cover:
Below is yet another Arthur publication which has the heart symbolism (a pillow on the sofa chair) and if you click on the larger image, you can see another of one these modified infinity symbols behind the lettering of Arthur's name at the bottom.
Below, we see a Precept Ministries advertisement for a "cruise". The '08 has been turned sideways, creating yet another infinity symbol. Is it accidental? The context created by all the other symbolism in Arthur's materials would seem to indicate otherwise.
You may be interested to know I was able to have a close family relative make inquiries directly with the leadership of the Arthur organization regarding these displays of occult symbolism. He received only some very perfunctory and garbled 'non-answers'. He was effectively brushed off.
WHAT IS GOING ON HERE??
At this point, the reader may be fairly bursting with questions of all sorts--"Why would Kay Arthur utilize Masonic symbolism, of all things?"
"If her teaching appears to be nevertheless 'biblical' where then is any harm actually being done?"
"What possible purpose is being accomplished by inserting occultism or occultists into the Christian community?"
"How in the world would it be possible for anyone to 'fake' their Christianity over an entire lifetime? What could possibly motivate anyone to do such a strange and monstrous thing??"
SHORT ANSWERS NOW...LONG ANSWERS LATER!
The short answer about Arthur's Masonic symbolism...is that there is a worldwide occult network that, as you read along in this e-book, will come to be seen as none other than the Antichrist movement. Obviously, just from looking at a little bit of introductory evidence, there are hidden, camouflaged luciferian agents who have learned to infiltrate and hide in the inner circles of various organizations...such as conservative Evangelicalism, Freemasonry, and numerous other groups, which I point out further along.
The immediate purpose for the infiltration into Christian circles...as I have already mentioned and will continue to explain throughout: It's about the Great Apostasy plot, or what is sometimes called "the great falling away".
How do some of these wolves achieve such extraordinary levels of convincing deception with their virtually seamless, sheep-like appearance...and sustain it over an entire lifetime? In-depth answers are forthcoming in chapter 8. By the time you get through chapter 8, I believe you'll have a good idea. Hopefully, you won't skip forward too much in reading through this thesis.
DO FALSE PROPHETS TEACH BIBLE LESSONS?
As to the possibility of Bible-teaching "wolves"--I have had folks argue that satanists could never teach the Bible. Really? Wolves in sheep's clothing don't "teach" the Bible? How could they otherwise be effective wolves and "false prophets"? I have news for you--the Devil's minions succeed very well at giving the appearance of teaching the Bible virtually cover-to-cover...with a series of subtle (yet critical) twists thrown in.
One thing they're counting on--a very carefully planned and executed apostasy plot. Think about this carefully: In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus makes it clear that there are those whom He describes as "followers"...but who in the end will turn out not to have been genuinely born again. They will be those who are deceived into apostasy and doom through the efforts of "false prophets".
In other words, the Devil can afford to allow a whole lot of seemingly accurate "Bible teaching" to go on...and doesn't care if you "follow" those teachings...as long as it's 'temporary'.
The Devil's motto: Go ahead and follow Jesus' and the Bible's teachings...just don't follow Him to the end.
People who aren't aware of the plot which fortunately, you're becoming aware of as you read through this (if you weren't aware already!)...will be in very grave danger of falling from the faith at a critical point.
This is precisely the Devil's strategy and precisely what Jesus describes in the Olivet Discourse: The Devil's plan is to let people go along with their "Christian walk", all the while introducing apostasizing influences, particularly in the last days...and then step in at the very end with a specific and carefully planned deception plot which lures many to their doom. Please read:
Matthew 24:10-13--"At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved."
Note carefully the following observations from the above passage: 1) There are those who follow Christ and yet fall away. 2) This "falling away" goes beyond just a temporary "backsliding". It has potentially tragic and eternal implications ("...the one who endures to the end"). 3) These false prophets play a critical role in luring people to their doom.
Satanists are cheaters, if nothing else. In other words, these satanic "wolves"/false prophets will say and/or "teach" ANYTHING and perpetrate ANY kind of deception...if it helps keep their cover and nudges their intended victim one inch closer to apostasy.
How is this apostasy successfully perpetrated? Quite simply (and we will flesh out this specific Matthew 24 scenario in more detail as we go along)...the false prophets convince weak-minded, waffling "fair weather" followers to step away from their faith in the Lord.
SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION: CLING TO YOUR FAITH; LISTEN FOR THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET
1Thessalonians 4:16: "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God..."
I say it to myself as much as anyone else: Cling to your faith during the troubled times. It's a simple and powerful prescription, stated over and over throughout the Scriptures: "The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer...in whom I take refuge...my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold" (Psalms 18:2).
I look at this upcoming "great apostasy" with sad wonderment--how can anyone step away from faith in Jesus just as the storm is at its strongest...just as the King is about to return and take us to our eternal, heavenly home? Matthew 24:31--"And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds...".
I would have to believe that by virtue of having gone to the trouble of carefully examining these Scriptures (as we are doing here)...we have gone a long, long way towards successful preparation for rejecting this last-minute satanic deception scheme, if we happen to live to those days.
A few observations about Christian pop singer Al Denson: In the months since I began putting together the material for this book, his television program has apparently been cancelled. He seems to have withdrawn to relative obscurity. Nevertheless, the Denson scenario seemingly provides a good example of camouflaged occultism.
I think one of the main reasons I am making this opening effort to lay out the evidence of hidden and coded occult symbolism is...to make the point that the Devil's deceptions have INDEED been far more pervasive and crafty than we might have been led to believe. I think this then prepares the reader more effectively for what is to be discussed in the next stages of this overall report.
I am also, here in these opening portions, trying to provide a bit of a "tutorial" (if I may be so bold) on occult symbolism
...as this will come in handy in studying through much of the rest of this material.
I had previously displayed this photo (below) taken from Denson's website. What really got my attention was the 'modified' Eye of Horus depicted in the center of this photo montage.
And once again, there is this somewhat disguised Masonic symbolism...with the neon lights spelling the word "Al" shaped into the classic Square and Compass symbolism (upper left photo). I'll say for now-the Masonic/occult connection will become more apparent as you read along.
On my "current events" blog (New Jerusalem Chronicle), there is another example of Masonic symbolism in connection with a CCM artist--Toby Mac: LINK
There are other indications in these above photos but that's enough for now. All of this is just too much of a coincidence, given what I had already seen of hidden symbolism elsewhere in 'Evangelical-dom'. And this eye/triangle depiction, combined with a conspicuous pose struck by Denson in the photo below (and located on the top banner of his website)...had all my alarm bells ringing.
Once again, there are obvious "dots" to connect here. I have seen this 'split-finger' hand pose all over the occult world. LINK
33rd degree Mason Robert Schuller (seen below) has struck this kind of pose at least a few times in various photos.
By the way, if you think these poses might be accidental (even with all the context having been previously provided)...try positioning your hands and fingers in this strange fashion, as seen in these Schuller and Denson photos. Those poses are not accidental.
"V" STANDS FOR "SATAN"
And what is the occult significance of this "V" symbolism? Apparently, it has multiple meanings...which is what occultists prefer with their various symbolisms. We could refer to this as "the Sign of Five", among other things...since it is primarily indicating the particular Roman numeral.
I believe the Roman numeral "V" is being utilized here as an indication of the satanic/occultic five-sided pentagram and it is therefore a coded reference. Such are the reports from various occult experts and ex-Luciferians.
And it has also had a dual significance in the occult world in that it equally refers to the Hebrew letter "V" (Vau) which also translates into the word "nail", one of the secret names for Satan among Kaballah-style Satanists. I intend to say much more about Kabbalistic occultism and its secretive yet absolutely critical role in world history, and in the advancement of an occultic globalism.
[By the way, I became aware at some point, that the word
"occultic" doesn't actually show up in the dictionary. In fact, I have observed any number of strange omissions of occult terminology...in the dictionaries, in "Microsoft Word", in the various 'spell-check' scenarios, such as my own email. We have the word "cultic" but no "occultic"? Rather odd. It's a useful term. If it is supposedly up to me to coin a "new" word, then so be it.]
Interestingly, this "V" occult indicator was first made popular in the modern era by Winston Churchill who became known for flashing the (supposed) "V-for-victory" sign. It has since been used as a supposed "peace" sign.
Remember though, from the previous chapter: There is considerable occult intrigue associated with the origins of the broken cross "peace symbol". And so the use of the "V" as a peace sign is similarly dubious.
Winston Churchill was a card-carrying occultist, an officially and formally inducted Druid. Among us Bible-believers, let us not mince words here: Druidism is nothing but thinly veiled Satanism. It has had a history of human sacrifice going back thousands of years in the British Isles. It is a direct descendant of the Canaanite version of Satan-worship, which practiced human sacrifice to the god "Moloch". The Druids subsequently adopted this very same god. My distinct impression from studying "Moloch" is that this is simply an alias for the Devil himself.
HURRAY FOR HOLLYWOOD?
If you'll allow me to briefly delve a little further and deeper...I am attempting to provide a kind of "mini-primer" regarding occultism. Occultism 101 (so to speak).
Therefore, another interesting manifestation of the "V" sign is in regard to the TV and movie series Star Trek. To be accurate, the so-called "Vulcan greeting", did not originate with the TV series. It has come out of Masonic culture and out of the world of occultism, i.e. Luciferianism.
In researching the huge prevalence of occult symbolism in Hollywood, it rather quickly becomes quite evident there has been a deliberate insertion of these things. It goes far beyond Star Trek, as you will see in reading along here. Link
The term "Vulcan" is a reference to an actual pagan god straight out of the occult world. Quoting from another occult researcher:
Vulcan was a sun deity....The festival in honour of him was called the Vulcania in which human sacrifices were offered....Vulcan is adored in Masonry under the name of Tubal Cain. In the Masonic Quiz Book the question is asked: "Who was Tubal Cain?" The answer is: "He is the Vulcan of the pagans." In Masonry, Tubal Cain is the name of the password for the Master Mason (or third) degree.
Occultist/Mason, Manly Palmer Hall in his most well known work, which was entitled "The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy" stated the following:
"When the Mason learns...the key...he has learned the mastery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a ploughshare."
Therefore, the so-called "Vulcan greeting" of Star Trek fame has nothing to do with 'living long' and 'prospering'. "Vulcan" is and has been...a pagan god going back to antiquity. Again, I make a long story short and tell you this is, as best I can tell, simply another alias for Lucifer. If not a reference to the Devil himself, then certainly a reference to one of his top henchman.
"COME ON. WHERE'S THE HARM?"
I'm sure the first inclination on the part of many readers is...to laugh this off as 'harmless'. "Where is the danger in a Star Trek episode?" some might ask.
Think carefully- I am not suggesting you are going to turn into a zombie if you watch Star Trek...but have you not noticed a subtle yet steady overall increase in occult-oriented TV and film entertainment over the years? There is a cumulative effect, is there not?
The effect is that it...sets the tone. Over a period of years, people become "accustomed" to occult elements as part of our culture. Slowly and subtly there is increasing acceptance and credibility for all things 'occultic'.
And while we're on the subject of Star Trek (not to pick on just this one progam), please notice that the script writers for this show miss NO opportunity to promote "one world" and/or New World Order propaganda. You should have noticed by now that the vast majority of television programming and Hollywood movies are all pushing an agenda.
HEADS-UP TO NON-"BOOK WORMS"!
In reading back though this chapter for editing purposes, I notice this may be getting a little long-winded for folks who aren't accustomed to major reading assignments. For the remainder of the chapter, I simply delve a little deeper into examples of what I consider "false prophets" and/or "false christs"--Oprah Winfrey's new cult and the New Age guru she has been introducing to the world...
...and a mini-study into the Robert Schuller / Norman Vincent Peale connection. Younger people may have never even heard of the latter two! You may feel you've already gotten enough of a good introduction into this matter of "false prophets".
I would suggest scrolling down to the final section Covert Luciferianism in American Government and then moving on to the next chapter. For those interested in the deeper details, read the whole chapter!
A FORMAL KICK-OFF FOR THE "NEW AGE"?
In connection with that, take a close look at this new Oprah Winfrey religion which has recently emerged in bizarre and disturbing fashion. Has the Devil decided "mainstream" America is now ready for the introduction of "New Age-ism"? Allow me to quote a few excerpts from a Google video mini-documentary:
Have you heard about the largest church in the world? The first service was March 3, 2008...with an attendance of over 300,000. The attendance is now over two million, and they conducted the first-ever "mass trance" on March 17, 2008.
What do they teach? -- "What you are requires no belief. Heaven is not a location but refers to the "inner realm of consciousness". The man on the cross is an archetypal image. He is every man and every woman."
The leader's website teaches these lessons: "I am part of God. I am very holy. My holiness is my salvation. My salvation comes from me. Let me remember that there is no sin. Do not make the pathetic error of 'clinging to the old rugged cross' The only message of the crucifixion is that you can overcome the cross."
Have you heard of this church or its leader? Her name is Oprah Winfrey. She has now turned her millions of adoring fans over to New Age doctrine.
Oprah has just now kicked off a full-fledged cult. She has an occultic New Age guru who acts as a kind of 'high priest', there is a book, a church, a defined doctrine which is explicitly anti-Christian...the works. The whole thing is now up and running...with millions of instant followers.
I would ask this--Could she have achieved that kind following a few decades ago? I don't think so. You can see there has been a steady march towards a 'popularization' of occultism and New Age doctrine...and it has been a painstaking, methodical process:
Pop culture has been carefully directed and manipulated. TV show after TV show with occult themes. Movie after movie with New Age propaganda. The way has been paved for the Antichrist. There has been a deliberate and carefully planned 'paving' process.
There have been other New Age occult movements. There was "EST" in the 80's, for example. But there is something unprecedented about a TV talkshow host being able to create a vast army of cultic devotees in a few short days.
So when the Bible predicts in Mark 13 (and other places) regarding "false prophets" in the last days...I believe we are going to see these people coming from unexpected places. Oprah Winfrey may very well turn out to be an example of this. Notice all the interesting earmarks:
1) She is perceived as one of the ultimate 'good and decent' people on the planet. Who better to promote a hardcore anti-Christian message...than "angels of light" (so to speak)?
2) She has inspired a rather strange worshipful-like following over the years...so conspicuous that it has been a source of amusement with the likes of Saturday Night Live and such. Had you noticed that? And so now in rather startling fashion...she has suddenly emerged, guns blazing, with an explicit anti-Christian denunciation of the Gospel message.
Read Mark 13 carefully: I believe you may be seeing Oprah and these many covert "Evangelical" occultists being exposed for what their ultimate agenda actually is.
Allow me at this early stage to give a partial answer as to what these covert occultists (and New Age prophets) may be about:
According to the Scriptures (the prophesy passages in Mark 13 and Matthew 24), I believe that at a certain critical phase these many false prophets will perpetrate a betrayal which results in huge numbers of spiritual and literal/physical captives. I will try to provide more detail when we get to my chapter on Bible prophecy.
THE ROBERT SCHULLER / NORMAN VINCENT PEALE CONNECTION
Getting back to the subject of Robert Schuller: Fritz Springmeier and other researchers have accumulated convincing evidence indicating Schuller's covert occultic essence and his apparent Masonic membership and status as a 33rd degree Mason. LINK
His penchant for flashing Masonic/occultic hand signs and performing weird, conspicuous Masonic handshakes with fellow occultists in public places, provides further confirmation. In the photo below, we can see that Schuller is either a practicing occultist...or trying to dislocate Gorbachev's shoulder.
"Is Gorbachev also Masonic?" you may be asking. You'll be surprised to find out how many world luminaries have secretive or semi-secret affiliations of this nature:
For example, the Grand Lodge of the State of Israel placed this ad (seen below)in the Jerusalem Post (in November of 1994) thus documenting the Masonic status of these three world leaders. There's more to say about Clinton a bit later.
I hope the reader intuitively finds it, at best, very odd...that people like this are members of Freemasonry, yet never mention it in any interview, never refer to it in any way whatsoever, and other than the backwaters of the Internet, keep these affiliations as a virtual secret.
As to Gorbachev: James H. Billington, the Librarian of Congress, noted in his 1992 book, "Russia Transformed: Breakthrough to Hope", that:
"One of Russia's greatest art historians had told me in all seriousness a year before that all of Russia's troubles had begun when Gorbachev was initiated into a Masonic Lodge by Margaret Thatcher during his first trip to London."
NORMAN VINCENT PEALE: FULL-BLOWN OCCULTIST
Of course, most conservative Bible students perceive Schuller's teachings, when measured by orthodox biblical standards...to be an unending 'horror show' of heresy and falsehood.
Schuller's mentor was none other than Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993), who was himself a 33rd degree Mason and whose portrait now hangs in the Grand Masonic Lodge in Washington DC. Schuller's philosophy and teachings have been a virtual replication of Peale's.
I am certainly aware that most younger readers would have little awareness of Peale...other than having possibly a vague awareness of his bestseller book "The Power of Positive Thinking". But he provides us a good example of how covert occultism has been subtly inserted into the church world...so bear with me for a moment. (I get into a closer look at the more contemporary Christian leaders later in chapters 13 and 14.)
I had always sort of dismissed Peale as simply a wishy-washy non-fundamentalist who dabbled absentmindedly in New Age ideas. But the information in the links I provide below (and from many other sources) begin to make it clear that Peale was utterly and thoroughly occultic.By the way, let's be clear on this point-- As Bible students, we shouldn't fail to make the obvious connection between
"occultism" and "Luciferianism". To be 'occultic' is to be luciferian...satanic.
The occultism of Peale is an example: Only at a certain point in reading up on this man, was there (for me) the startling realization that this individual was nothing less than luciferian...satanic. There is a subtlety to all of it.
In many ways, Peale is the archetype modern-day Christian clergyman/covert occultist:
While posturing as "Christian", he nevertheless openly endorsed and practiced Shintoism. Shintoism, of course, in the biblical world view is nothing other than occultism, i.e. interaction with demonic beings.
He also endorsed "automatic writing" which, again, is really just a form of demon possession. Peale also once made the comment regarding occultist "The Amazing Kreskin": "All he's doing is dramatizing what I've been preaching in my writing for years."
Isn't it interesting that Peale was nevertheless regularly credited by the media (both secular AND Christian) only as being a "Christian minister"?
From these various identical poses struck by Peale (seen below), it is obvious his favored Masonic code was that of the "skull and crossbones". There certainly is no controversy in interpreting these conspicuously repeated poses as "Masonic"
...since he was a documented Mason (although in the pre-Internet era, a virtually secret Mason).
But what business does a "Christian" have...sneaking these secret signals past his fellow Christians? He had no business whatsoever.
Peale's official Masonic portrait
From "Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry" (p.91): The Masonic "X" or "Skull and Crossbones" LINK
Again though, if you're not quite ready to intepret Peale's poses as secret Masonic signaling, that's OK. You need to understand though...it is quite routine for prominent Masons to incorporate Masonic signaling into their formal portraits and photographs. It's part of the culture. If you study through the subject, you will see this over and over again, and this has been a custom for centuries. In later chapters, I show many more examples of this kind of thing.
So with Peale we have a good example of the subtle way in which there is this hidden Luciferianism. Again though, as you can see--in a very strange way it has been..."hidden in plain sight". To this day the public's general perception is that Peale was "Christian", albeit supposedly somewhat on the 'liberal' side.
The real truth about Peale seems to have been systematically concealed, partly through the ignorance of secular reporting, but partly also through deliberate dishonesty. I would ask fellow Bible-believers to discern the fact there has been a satanically-inspired misrepresentation. However it may have been accomplished, Peale's occultism has been successfully covered up. The same potentially applies to Schuller and Denson.
Here are some resources on Peale and the Peale/Schuller connection: LINK LINK
By the way, it is important to understand that in the same way the Evangelical world has been infiltrated...the Masonic organization has also been infiltrated. What I am proposing here is that there is a secret inner core of Masonic members who are Luciferian devotees, while 90% or more of the general membership have no awareness of these things. You will read the testimonies (or will be linked to such)...from ex-Masons and other occult survivors who have testified to this reality, time and again.
COVERT LUCIFERIANISM--IN AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
My general point here has been that...this systematic misrepresentation, such as is evident with Peale, continues to the present day.
And this deliberate deception and camouflaging has taken on increasingly sophisticated forms...as with Michael Smith and Kay Arthur, for example.
Does anyone think the devil has become bored with the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” concept, and no longer utilizes such methods? That is unrealistic in the extreme.
The 'wolves" are not only hiding in the churches and lodges...they are (as I stated at the outset) infiltrating government.
I mentioned Norman Vincent Peale receiving the "honor" of having his portrait hung in the main Masonic Lodge in Washington DC. Have you ever looked a little more closely at our nation's capital and its various designs...or looked at our government's various symbols and insignias?
How many folks have actually taken note of all the occult symbolism and secret indicators in American government? I will present and display many more examples of luciferian infiltration of Western politics and government, particularly starting in Chapter Eleven. A few examples for now:
The Statue of Liberty...how many people bother to figure out this connects directly to Diana Lucifera, an ancient pagan/satanic Roman goddess who is believed by many to be a female version of Satan himself?
Diana Lucifera (also know as Luna)
In fact, Diana Lucifera pops up in various places whereever secretive occultists have slithered in. Recall (see below) this familiar Hollywood movie symbolism.
And the Washington Monument....along with every other "obelisk" in the world is a direct tribute to Satan...a satanic, phallic symbol. There is absolutely no question about it. But who knows or notices this stuff? I certainly didn't...until I stumbled across this whole subject matter.
And then there are all the occultic anomalies associated with the street patterns in Washington DC. Pierre Charles L'Enfante, a Freemason and the chief designer, arranged to have an "upside down" baphomet pentagram incorporated into the street layout design.
Notice how the bottom point of this five-point pentagram, ends right at the White House. Also, if you look very closely at the satellite photo, you may notice that the street designs are such that one section of the pentagram is actually left out. I have seen that kind of 'modification' many times--I believe this is done to create a certain degree of 'deniability'.
The design of the aptly named "Pentagon" is obviously a modified presentation of the five-point "star". Had you noticed that before? The design is no accident. And I don't know anyone who would even argue that. The pentagram has been absolutely one of the central symbols in American government.
And to be clear: There is no innocent or wholesome origin for the five-point star in the world of symbolism.
Granted, God is the original designer of this specific shape (think of the star fish or Hawaiian star fruit). But as symbols go-- the pentagram comes straight from the pit of Hell...a satanic 'plagiarization' (if you will). And so here we find it showing up in the street patterns of downtown DC, on the American flag, and so on.
We could go on all day (all month) pointing out the occultism incorporated into US government. There is yet another rather startling manifestation of occult devotion which has been noticed by researchers:
At the Capitol Building, the rotunda has been ingeniously designed so as to create a kind of optical illusion of the "All-Seeing Eye"...complete with 'eyelid' effect if you stand at the correct angle.
And by the way, isn't it interesting that this same satanic obelisk and "All-seeing Eye" rotunda design...can also be found at the Vatican? I would ask careful Bible students: Are we not looking at an over-arching satanic influence which has spanned centuries and has transcended cultures, governments and religions?The Vatican's "obelisk" and the rotunda in the background.

Yes, in similar fashion to Evangelicalism, to the Masons, to US government, Hollywood, and academia....the Catholic church also has a hidden core of occultists and a huge historical connection to occultism, which in this case goes all the way back to antiquity. But that's for another chapter.
WAKE UP; SMELL COFFEE
In hindsight, it is interesting to me how I had never noticed that it obviously required real live "hidden occultists" to arrange for these gigantic occult symbols to be put in place.
With the placement of all these huge occult monuments, and this plethora of carefully crafted symbols, all painstakingly devised and disguised...we are thus seeing an enormous effort from invisible platoons of devotees. Before us lies the evidence and the reality of hidden occultists.
All this symbolism represents a great degree of determination and commitment towards a certain goal--and that goal is nothing less than satanic global domination. Granted, their "hey day" is only going to last a few short years (or months, even) before a Greater Power shuts them down for good. Nevertheless, these people are, in similar fashion to their lord and master, Lucifer...deadly serious.
So this is the basic proposition I have been trying to introduce here---the Devil has had a secret army of hidden 'minions'....an army of darkness. And these globalist Luciferians obviously continue to the present day.
If we put on our biblical "thinking caps" just for a moment...and reflect on what we can know or surmise about the nature and character of Satan and his desire to 'copycat' the Lord God...and to "compete" with God...then ask this question: Would Satan not also want devotees, followers, worshippers...in his psychopathic quest to compete with the God of Heaven?
I had previously assumed Lucifer was content with all of his billions of "de facto" followers. The Scriptures, after all, declare anyone who is not a child of God is therefore, by default, a subscriber to this world and its values...technically therefore, a follower of "the spirit of this world", i.e. the Devil.
I had thought that was all there was to it. I couldn't have possibly imagined the scenario that I now see before me: Real, live Satanists in huge and vast numbers...and who are populating mostly the very highest levels of power and wealth. Apparently, the Devil has NOT been content with mere "de facto" followers. Who knew?
