The occult mystery kept secret for thousands of years is connected to the Nephilim of Genesis 6.
In our previous installment Wars of The Nephilim Kings, Beginning And End referenced an occult secret linked to the Nephilim. Something that many in the New Age and occult societies acknowledge is in the Bible. What do the symbols of Freemasonry, alchemy and many other mystic groups mean? What is the mystery they have been concealing for centuries? This article will explain from the pages of Scripture.
A Secret Hidden In The Bible?
The secret is hidden in plain sight.
Among the foremost leaders of the mystery schools and New Age movement, there was an acknowledgment this special knowledge was contained in the pages of the Holy Bible. Albert Pike, 33rd degree Freemason philosopher, Confederate War General and Luciferian wrote:
“Therein is the secret fire, living and philosophical, of which all the Hermetic philosophers speak with the most mysterious reserve: the Universal Seed, the secret whereof they kept, and which they represented only under the figure of the Caduceus of Hermes. This is the grand Hermetic arcanum…. So that the Great Work is more than a chemical operation; it is a real creation of the human word initiated into the power of the Word of God.” – Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike, p 501-502.
Other esoteric sources also credit the Bible for having this knowledge:
“The reason…is that there exist powerful secrets hidden in the pages of this ancient book [the Bible]… a vast collection of untapped wisdom waiting to be unveiled.” – The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown, p. 489.
“The great Masonic truths, concealed among the learned of former ages under allegories and fables, are therefore lost – long long lost! But what is lost is not consequently destroyed – what is lost may be found, and all that is required is some clue or key. Fortunately there are applicable keys, held sacred by a body of men who know not their use, and the locks these keys fit are held sacred by all modern clergy, and the multitude of religionists. The first and best evidence of the truthfulness of the keys is their being used to interpret the Bible – that heavenly book of truth.” – The Ignorant Learned, p. 15-16.
What is this hidden knowledge? One source gives a subtle hint:
“I knelt beneath the cedars old and hoar
That streak with verdure snowy Lebanon;
The mountain eagles o er the patriarchs soar,
The thunder clouds of summer grimly frown,
Where large and strong they stand those giants of renown” – Freemasonry in The Holy Land, p. 604.
The Fusion of Opposites – Genesis 6
The secret was revealed to the prophet Daniel.
The secret is The Fusion of Opposites – a term commonly used in the Christian community by Pastor Mike Hoggard of Bethel Baptist Church. What the occult societies and new age mystics have concealed is that the path to attaining godhood and immortality is found in Genesis 6 – the account of the fallen angelic Sons of God marrying the daughters of men and giving birth to the Nephilim giants – hybrid supermen who dominated the antediluvian world. The great expectation of the occult is a future age where the angels interact with humanity that can revive that era and turn men to gods.
The Biblical source for this is found in Daniel chapter 2. In this chapter, the power of the God of the Bible comes in direct conflict with the occult. King Nebuchadnezzar, ruler of ancient Babylon and the most powerful man on Earth at that time, woke from a nightmare so terrifying he called all his court astrologers, wizards and mystics to give him the interpretation. Adding to the challenge was that that the king could not remember the content of the dream – requiring clear supernatural insight to answer his request. The occult advisors to the king were powerless to respond:
“Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. 3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream. 4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation. 5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof. 7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it. 8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me. 9 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.
10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king’s matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean. 11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh. 12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.” – Daniel 2:2-12.
The royal sorcerers told the king that it was impossible for any mere human to supernaturally look in the recesses of the king’s memory, find out what he dreamt and then interpret that dream for him. This provoked the king to order the death of any wise man. The prophet Daniel was living in captivity in the king’s court in Babylon at that time. When he heard of the decree to kill the wise men he requested an audience with the king and then prayed to God for the answer:
“Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.” – Daniel 2:16-19.
Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was of a giant statue with a head of gold, chest and arms of silver, stomach and thighs of brass and calves and feet of iron. Each different metal represented a kingdom that would rule the earth for a time. The head of gold was Nebuchadnezzar’s own Babylonian empire. The chest and arms of silver were the Medo-Persians who eventually conquered Babylon. The stomach and thighs were the Greek empire who conquered the Medo-Persians. Daniel groups these 3 kingdoms together:
“And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.” – Daniel 2:39.
The Fourth Kingdom of iron with feet or iron and miry clay is often described as the Roman Empire – a logical interpretation given that the Romans succeeded the Greeks. However, the bible never identifies this kingdom as Rome. What the iron kingdom prophetically refers to is the end times kingdom of the Antichrist – when the angelic realm will return to Earth:
“And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” – Daniel 2:40-43.
The dream of Nebuchadnezzar predicted the coming Gentile kingdoms
and the final world kingdom of Antichrist before the Second Coming of Jesus.
A great deal of the prophecy in the book of Daniel is devoted to detailing the end times kingdom of the Antichrist – and repeatedly, iron is symbolically connected:
“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” – Daniel 7:7-8.
The beast in this vision is representative of the Antichrist Kingdom. The beast was also seen by the Apostle John, author of the book of Revelation:
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” – Revelation 13:1-2.
The beast of Daniel 7 is not just the Antichrist – it represents his supernatural kingdom of fallen angels and human subjects. This is explained in Revelation 17:
“And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is…. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast…These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” – Revelation 17:7-8; 12-13.
This end times government will be discussed in greater detail in our Revelation series but suffice to say that the beast with iron teeth in Daniel’s vision was not the Roman empire but the fallen angelic kingdom in its return to earth. Even King Nebuchadnezzar, who in his early rebellious life was a foreshadow of the Antichrist [B&E: please see our article Nebuchadnezzar 666: Foreshadow of the Antichrist for a more detailed study on this], was punished in a dream that contained iron symbolism.
Daniel 2:43 is one of the most interesting prophecies in Scripture, as it predicts the iron kingdom will “mingle themselves with the seed of men…” The seed of men is a reference to genetics of human beings. The first reference to “seed” in Scripture is found in Genesis 3 when God punished Adam, Eve and Satan for the sin in the Garden of Eden:
“And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” – Genesis 3:14-15.
This was the first prophecy of the Messiah in Scripture. The Lord announced to Satan that a child would be born who would one day conquer him. “The seed of the woman” was the lineage that would lead to The Lord Jesus Christ. And the seed of the serpent, would be the offspring of Satan’s schemes in the war to stop or destroy the Messiah. It is widely accepted among pastors and theologians that “seed” is a childbirth/genetic reference.
And as this series has covered, one of Satan’s attempts to thwart or corrupt the seed of the woman was by the Nephilim – the offspring of fallen angels and human women as recorded in Genesis 6:
“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. – Genesis 6:1-4.
The 10-horned beast of Daniel 7 was also seen by the Apostle John, author of the book of Revelation.
Thus the “secret” refers to the birth of the supernatural, god-man or demigod. This is what the ancient mystics sought after. In Psalm 139, King David, writing of his conception and God’s creative process in the womb wrote:
“My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.” – Psalm 139:15.
In this amazing passage, King David describes the function of human DNA:
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” – Psalm 139:13-14.
The context of the passage is God’s creative power of life in the womb.
“My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” – Psalm 139:15-16.
Here King David describes God seeing his body (“substance”) before it was ever formed (“yet being unperfect”). And in the “book” of The Lord all of the body parts of David (his “members”) were written and fashioned before they were ever made. This is how DNA functions as the blueprint of a person’s body. It is our DNA that makes us uniquely human. And this is what Satan sought to corrupt after God proclaimed a human child would one day conquer him (as we detail in our article Bloodlines of the Nephilim – A Biblical Study).
The 4th Kingdom – Return of Fallen Angels
Satan attempted to corrupt human DNA in Genesis and does so again in Revelation.
Daniel frequently wrote of the Antichrist – the Satanically-empowered false messiah who will rule the Earth for 3 1/2 years before the Second Coming of Christ. In his illustrative language, this fourth kingdom that is associated with the supernatural government of the antichrist. The number 4 is associated with the angelic realm all throughout the Bible. This is most prominently seen in Ezekiel 1 when the prophet encounters many heavenly realm beings:
“And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.” – Ezekiel 1:5-8.
The Garden of Eden had 4 rivers. There are 4 cherubim seated around the throne of God. When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were in the fiery furnace, King Nebuchadnezzar saw four men (the 4th being the Lord Jesus Christ in His preincarnate form). In Revelation 7 there are 4 angels standing at the four corners of the Earth. In Revelation 9, there are 4 fallen angels imprisoned beneath the Euphrates river who are released to torment humanity. When the New Jerusalem descends to the New Earth in Revelation 21 its dimensions are “foursquare.” (Revelation 21:16).
Revelation 12 also confirms that fallen angels will return to Earth in the end times:
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. …And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
“And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads… and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.” – Revelation 9:1-4; 7-9.
Note that these hybrid, bizarre hordes from the abyss wear breastplates of iron.
In John’s vision, the archangel Michael defeats Satan and banishes him and his angels to Earth.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” – Revelation 12:7-9.
Very few sermons or commentaries address this passage that explicitly states in the end times the Devil and his millions of fallen angelic followers will be on Earth – never to return to the Heavenly realm again. The end times will be an era where angels will indeed be openly interacting with humans (as it was in the days of Noah). In the occult and New Age movement these angels – who they refer to “Ascended Masters”, the “hierarchy”, spirit guides, etc., will guide humanity into a New Age of enlightenment and evolution.
This is the very era that those in the occult look forward to and seek to bring into being. Most “magic” rituals are just means of attempting to communicate with the heavenly/spirit realm. But it is the Genesis 6 incursion – where angels were intimate with human women – that is referenced time and time again in mystic symbolism.
Decoding The Symbols
Can you see the fusion of opposites?
“The book to which this is the introduction is dedicated to the proposition that concealed within the emblematic figures, allegories, and rituals of the ancients is a secret doctrine concerning the inner mysteries of life, which doctrine has been preserved in toto among a small band of initiated minds since the beginning of the world. Departing, these illumined philosophers left their formulæ that others, too, might attain to understanding. But, lest these secret processes fall into uncultured hands and be perverted, the Great Arcanum was always concealed in symbol or allegory; and those who can today discover its lost keys may open with them a treasure house of philosophic, scientific, and religious truths.” – The Secret Teachings of All Ages p. 12 -13.
As the above quote indicates, symbols were used to conceal secrets across cultures and generations. And what these symbols constantly reference is the Fusion of Opposites (Sons of God and Daughters of men/Fusion of Heavenly and Earthly realms). Freemasonry acknowledges this:
“The Compass, as the Symbol of the Heavens, represents the spiritual portion of this double nature of Humanity…and the Square, as the Symbol of the Earth, its material, sensual, and baser portion.” – Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma.
The compass (“sons of god”) fuses with the square (“daughters of men”) to create the demi-god or god-man.
The Da Vinci Code is the No. 5 selling book of all time. It is filled with references to many esoteric secrets and concepts. The entire premise of the book is that Jesus Christ had a child with Mary Magdalene (a blasphemous notion and blatant lie). The protagonist discovers this after learning that Da Vinci secretly painted Mary Magdalene in the place of the apostle John in The Last Supper painting:
In the book the female protagonist, Sophie, was a descendant of this secret bloodline.She is a demi-god and her heritage was kept guarded by an elite secret society for centuries. The book also references the ritual heiros gamos, which is a reenactment of the forbidden union between the Sons of God and daughters of men. This same ritual was depicted in the movie Eyes Wide Shut – a film about secret societies.
Notice that even in the text its ads, we see the “A” and “V” in Da Vinci made to look like the same shape in opposite directions next to each other:
Leonardo Da Vinci was indeed a member of esoteric societies and did conceal messages in his work. One of his lesser-known sketches is called “Angel in the Flesh.” In it he depicts an angel having both male and female reproductive organs (fusing two opposites).
Looking at a masonic board we see the symbols come to light:
Note that the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz (names taken from the Bible after the pillars Solomon erected in the temple – the place where God would manifest himself – thus an intersection of the Heavenly and Earthly realms) have a sun and a moon over them (opposites). The floor is a black and white checkerboard pattern (opposites). The ladder is an esoteric reference to “Jacob’s ladder” described in Genesis 28:
“And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
“And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” – Genesis 28:10-14.
In this remarkable passage Jacob saw a ladder which angels used to leave and return to Heaven. It was an intersection between the heavenly and earthly realms. And God stood at the top of the ladder confirming to Jacob that he would carry on the Messianic lineage leading to the Savior. In the occult, the symbol has been co-opted as a code for accessing the divine realm.
DNA – An Ancient Mystical Symbol
The drawing of the double helix shape of DNA was published in 1952 by Nobel prize winner Francis Crick. However, in the mystery schools the shape of DNA has existed for centuries. Dr. Jeremy Narby, came to this very conclusion in his book The Cosmic Serpent – DNA and the Origins of Knowledge. Darby spent several years living in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, studying indigenous cultures and their religious practices. He was stunned to learn that the shamans, who went into trances fueled by ayahuasca, (a plant-based hallucinogen that has become extremely popular of late) not only saw serpents in their vision, but drew figures of intertwined serpents in the looked identical to the shape of DNA. One example from ancient Sumeria ca 2200 BC is below:
These drawings go back thousands of years in some instances. Narby himself, intoxicated from the drug, also saw a vision of a serpent. From the Biblical perspective, it is clear that the serpent is Satan – in the form he took in the Garden of Eden when he told the lie to Eve that if she disobeyed God she would be as a god and never die:
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” – Genesis 3:1-5.
The caduceus is an ancient symbol of Hermeticism and revered in the occult mysteries. Note that it too is shaped like intertwined serpents.
A rendering of Raphael and the Caduceus.
Of this connection Narby wrote:
“When I arrived home, I went for a walk in the woods to clarify my thoughts. I started recapitulating from the beginning: I was trying to keep one eye on DNA and the other on shamanism to discover the common ground between the two. I reviewed the correspondences that I had found so far. Then I walked in silence, because I was struck. Ruminating over this mental block I recalled Carlos Perez Shuma’s words: “Look at the FORM.”
That morning, at the library, I had looked up DNA in several encyclopedias and had noted in passing that the shape of the double helix was most often described as a ladder, or a twisted rope ladder, or a spiral staircase. I was during the following split second, asking myself whether there were any ladders in shamanism, that the revelation occurred: “THE LADDERS! The shamans’ ladders, ‘symbols of the profession’ according to Metraux, present in shamanic themes around the world according to Eliade!”
I rushed back to my office and plunged into Mircea Eliade’s book Shamanism: Archaic techniques of ecstasy and discovered that there were “countless examples’ of shamanic ladders on all five continents, here a “spiral ladder,” there a “stairway” or “braided ropes.” In Australia, Tibet, Ancient Egypt, Africa, North and South America, “the symbolism of the rope, like that of the ladder, necessarily implies communication between sky and earth. It is by means of a rope or a ladder (as, too, by a vine, a bridge, a chain of arrows, etc.) that the gods descended to earth and men go up to the sky.” Eliade even cites an example from the Old Testament, where Jacob dreams of a ladder reaching up to heaven, “with the angels of God ascending and descending on it.” (pp. 62 – 63).”
The consistent theme whether its shamanism or 19th century occultists is that the path to “godhood” must come through some transformation of humanity right down to our DNA. What spirit inspires shamans in drug induced trances to see such images? A spirit of God? Or rather the spirit of fallen angels and demons. This is precisely why the Bible warns:
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” – John 4:1-3.
Promotion of Occult Symbolism
Here is a cover from a Time Magazine:
What spirit inspired this cover?
The image is a clear reference to Adam and Eve with the DNA/serpent coiled around them.
The movie Mission to Mars depicts a space team who make the first contact with alien life on Mars. This movie will be covered later in this series but the main plot element is that aliens thousands of years ago created humanity. Here is the movie poster:
Numerous occult mystery symbols represent this fusion of opposites. The black and white checkerboard reinforces this notion of sons of god fusing with their opposites:
Beginning And End previously covered the TV show ‘666 Park Avenue’ – a drama about a couple who make a pact with Satan. The show’s ad also contains the symbolism:
Below is an image of a Freemasonic initiation ritual:
The man is made to represent opposites: one pant leg is up, the other is down. One part of his chest is bare, the other is covered. etc.
Here is pop mega-star Pink at the MTV awards mimicking the freemasonic ritual:
Beginning And End previously covered the video game Devil May Cry 5, in which players assume the role of Dante – a Nephilim. During one of the scenes Dante and his brother – both Nephilim have a discussion on a city street with an image in the background:
Vergil and Dante, Nephilim brothers, are the heroes of the game.
The imagery on the back wall depicts the fusion of opposites. Another image in the game reinforces this message:
Intimate relations with demons and angels are portrayed as “true love.”
It is subtly revealing the secret.
The Baphomet is one of the most famous symbols of the occult is a clear representation of the Fusion of Opposites. It is part-man, part-beast. One of its arms points up while the other points down. It has female and male body parts (like Da Vinci’s sketch) with a caduceus for its phallus. On its arms are written the terms “solve” and “coagula”– a motto of alchemy. Alchemy is most known for its quest to turn lead into gold – but many state that is merely a metaphor for turning men into immortals.
Eliphas Levi made another, not as well-known drawing called The Star of David (there is no “Star of David” in the Bible):
Note once again that this drawing is the fusion of opposites. The reflection on water of the lower image is inverse in its colors from the top one. This concept was used for an ad with a famous pop star:
This concept can be seen in some of the architecture of Washington D.C., for example the Washington monument:
Note that in Levi’s Star of David there is a snake with its tail in its mouth. This is the Ouroboros:
” It is found in Gnosticism and alchemy representing cyclical natural life and the fusion of opposites. ” (source).
On the TV series The X-files, Scully, the skeptic FBI agent, was persuaded by a mysterious lover to get a tattoo. She chose to get an ouroboros on her back.
The overarching theme of this series was the creation of alien-human hybrids. And Scully herself would one day be mysteriously impregnated with a baby she feared was part-alien.
The Deception Revealed
The original “fusion of opposites” was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good And Evil in the Garden of Eden. It bore the one fruit that God warned Adam and Eve would lead to their deaths. Satan tricked Eve into thinking there was a path to immortality through disobedience to God and seeking one’s own way. But instead of enlightenment, Adam and Eve ended up spiritually dead – cut off from God, ashamed and banished from the Garden. Their disobedience introduced sin into the world and brought the curse of death upon humanity.
The Bible is not a book of “duality” or fusion:
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” – 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
“Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” – James 3:10-12.
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:5-7.
The bible teaches that we are not to serve the world and God. We cannot worship idols and be a Christian or participate in a sinful lifestyle and serve God. There is no fusion with The Lord. God is holy and His people must be Holy. The New Age movement avoids sin and instead preaches “no judgment” or “do as thou wilt”. Neither of those ideas deal with our guilt from sin and the judgment to come. The occult cannot provide atonement from the guilt and shame of the lifetime of sins we know we have intentionally committed. They offer no peace with God, just self-aggrandizement with the lie that all people are good and can eventually “evolve ourselves” into God-like beings. The same deception from the Garden of Eden.
The True Ladder Between Heaven And Earth
Faith in Jesus Christ is the true way to eternal life.
“And [Jesus] saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.” – John 1:51.
Time and time again the occult and New Age movement attempt to achieve immortality and reach Heaven apart from God. This is all a vain effort that will never be successful. Daniel 2 says that while the end times fallen angelic kingdom will attempt to mingle itself with the seed of men it will not “cleave.” The reign of the Antichrist will be a short one where people will wish they were dead due to the supernatural punishments unleashed by God:
“And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them” – Revelation 9:6.
Like all the promises of the Devil, the “immortality” offered by the Antichrist will be a deception. Jesus Christ in the passage above explained that the vision of Jacob’s ladder in Genesis 28 was a foreshadow of Himself. It is Jesus Christ who bridges Heaven and Earth because He came from Heaven as a human being and redeemed humanity. It is only through faith in the shed blood of Christ for the forgiveness of sin that a person regain right standing with God and be reconciled. It is salvation that turns a person from a condemned sinner to a son of the Holy God. No occult ritual can do it. No secret incantation can achieve it. It took God Himself to come to Earth and take our punishment to provide the only means of escaping eternity in Hell.
Satan does not want people to know or consider this, lest they repent and believe. And thus he has devised all manner of false religious systems and mysteries to deceive and confuse the masses into thinking they can perform their way to being immortal or achieving Heaven on Earth. If you are not a Christian, you should now realize that even those in the occult who oppose Christianity acknowledge the supernatural nature of the Bible. They still look to it, twisting its meaning for their own aims. Do not be deceived.
The promotion of the Nephilim as heroic or benevolent figures is all part of this deception. And we will examine this closely in the next installment: The Nephilim and Pop Culture.
