What Do Fred Flintstone and the Occult Have In Common?
My father sent me an email recently in response to a theoretical question I had concerning the Messiah for whom the Jews are waiting. I was wondering if they knowingly rejected Christ or if they truly still thought that God would send a great king with armies as their Messiah. I mean, if Jesus is the Messiah (and he is), then it should be evident to all who seek him, right? Being the son of God is no small thing. The son of God would have a presence that would be undeniable. And Jesus’ presence is undeniable. (Hence, the hate he and God draw from so-called unbelievers. You never see them hating on Mohammad, do you?) And being so self-evident, if the Jews reject him, then they are rejecting God.
He told me that many people believe that the illuminati (the über rich elite who own everything- including politicians) have blood ties to the ancient jewish Pharisees and Sadducees that were the original persecutors of Christ. Also, that these illuminati are invested in satan worship via organizations such as the Free Masons. Being me, I wanted proof- genealogical charts showing this. Not that it was really relevant- but I would find that bit of proof to be very amazing indeed.
His email contained links about the illuminati, their history, self documented belief systems, etc. I followed the bread crumbs to find truly daunting bits of information that link these people to the design of our dollar bill to the presidential seal. I even found links to the 9/11 site that contain proof (yes, it’s real) that the subway station directly under one of the towers was dedicated to satanic symbols (Horus’ eye) AND that the new subway station being built is yet another big, creepy eye. One could argue that all these eyes (pyramids & other symbols) have nothing to do with Satanic worship- but my response would then be, “But what’s with all the eyes?” It’s weird, to say the least!
I have to admit that either there is an unbelievable amount of coincidence (com’on people, is there really such a thing?) in finding these symbols everywhere OR there are people who like these symbols very much and manage to get them implemented in very expensive or politically powerful ways. And if they truly are satanic occults, all I have to say is…
Honestly, after reading about what people have to do to become 32 or 33 degree Masons (who can remember all the rules?) and thus be initiated into the ‘sacred mysteries’ or secret ‘knowledge’ is very reminiscent of Fred Flintstone’s Grand Pooh-bah lodge. I keep waiting for the pooh-bah hats with the horns to come out.
Secret knowledge? Initiation rites? Special symbols? Pa-LEASE!
If the argument is that Satan is behind the New World Order and the corrupt elite or the progressive movement, then I would say, “duh! Of COURSE he is!” But only to the extent that God wishes him to be. All this must pass in order for God to fulfill his own great plan. But why worry about the technical details of how Satan bamboozles a bunch of idiots into doing his will? Satan can’t touch anyone that God protects. So why worry? And the symbols? They are as impotent as Satan is. Mere boogey men meant to frighten the insecure.
I think some people fear these things just as they fear Satan. Not me. God said to fear HIM. God made Satan. No matter what Satan or any of us think, the pot cannot be greater than the potter who made it. Satan and many people believe that Satan has free will. That he chose to disobey God. That he truly has power. Listen. If God is God (and he is), then he doesn’t make mistakes (remember the All-Knowing part?). He knew exactly what he made when he made Satan. He KNEW he would disobey and then attempt to destroy God’s creation (us). It is an integral part of God’s plan to create us. You see, we aren’t done being created yet. When God created Adam & Eve, that was just the beginning of our creation. He also wants our love- just as we crave love from others. But love is not love unless it is given freely. So God gave us another choice: Satan. And Satan is beautiful (at least on the outside) and can promise many earthly things. Which do we choose? God, who promises rewards AFTER we die or Satan, who promises rewards NOW, while we are living? You have to have FAITH to make the first choice. You have to believe enough to give up your entire LIFE on earth to get God’s promise. And what if there is NO afterlife? Why, you have just wasted the only life you will ever have! Satan’s promise can be fulfilled right now and in a very tangible way- money, recognition, adoration, power, sex, fame, yachts, clothes, jewelry, castles, mansions, success and beauty.
So when you choose God, God knows you really love him. Sounds like a very human kind of test, doesn’t it? Very much like a wealthy man who conceals his riches from a woman he courts.
We are, after all, made in his image. Even God wants true love.
So, back to Satanic rituals. They make no sense. There IS no secret knowledge. That is the funny part. Why would ANYONE need to mumble a bunch of words or make a bunch of scribbles in order to get Satan to notice them and ‘accept’ them? Has Satan somehow become very picky in who he welcomes to Hell? Um. I don’t think so.
Here’s what I think: Satan fools these idiots into these rituals and symbols because he knows it truly appeals to their need for recognition and sense of self-worth. Basically, it makes them feel ‘special’. He makes them actually believe that they will have some kind of special position in the new satanic world where they will get to be ‘better’ than us dumb earth dwellers. But he plans to roast them on the spit the same as every other human who comes his way (you know, the mundane idiot who just hates Jesus and God in the ‘normal’ way). Satan’s mission is simply to destroy what God loves- people. His children. His special creation. Those to whom God truly gave free will. Perhaps Satan is actually jealous of us that we have been imbued with this incredible power. The power to truly choose. Without God’s interference.
In any case, the Grand Pooh-bah lodges can put their symbols on the dollar bill or at ground zero or anywhere they like. It doesn’t scare or worry me. Artists can continue to erect works of art that supposedly worship satan. Because here is what I know: God and Jesus can redeem anything- including hexagons, skulls and cross-bones, eyes, pyramids, the numbers 9, 13, 32, 33 or whatever. After all, look at the cross. It used to represent fear and oppression. It was used to scare the living daylights out of people who didn’t obey the Romans. And Jesus went and redeemed that ugly symbol and turned it into the greatest symbol of freedom and life and hope the world has ever seen.
So don’t worry, everyone, about the occult,- or about Satan. Fear God. He is the one to please.
