The Babylon Deception: Movies
The first flickering screens on which hundreds of eyes were fixed showed scenes from daily life. Horse-drawn carriages ambled slowly through the quaint, 19th century, cobblestone streets while pedestrians flowed around the carriages like small currents around boulders in a river.
It was not long before drama entered the movie scene. Movies during the early 20th century showed train robberies, trips to the Moon, and medieval fantasies. Hollywood came to America and the entertainment industry was born.
Due to the pressure and the potential loss of money, movie makers agreed to the public’s demands and a “moral” code, the Hay’s Code (“The Production Code...”), was applied to movies. It tolerated some “mild” immoral behavior, but would be considered very strict by today’s movie standards.
Over time, as movies pushed the boundaries of the Hay’s Code (“The Production Code…”), and as TV shows constantly broadcast moving images and ideas into the American home, new ideas about proper behavior and what was acceptable began to morph.
As the Rock and Roll music industry started its infancy, drawing young people into stadiums and concert halls, movies and TV shows began to focus more and more on darker themes, such as invasions from outer space and monsters eating humans.
In the late 1960s, movies pushed past the code restrictions and no enforcement was taken. The MPAA began its own rating system which could allow any content to be shown in a movie. A rating would then be applied to the film to identify what the intended audience should be (“The Production Code…”).
THE MAGIC WAND
Movies pushed what was acceptable with each passing year and immorality was blatantly promoted in many films. Today, it has only gotten worse. Movies have depicted every sin imaginable.
This spell-casting with magic wands continues to this day in the form of Hollywood movies (as well as in its original form as a wand). It can be proven that nearly all Hollywood movies have subliminal messages, occultic references, and hidden Masonic / Illuminati symbolism throughout. Square and compass symbols, all-seeing-eye symbols, the number 33, the number 666, pentagrams (upside-down, five-pointed stars), satanic symbols, satanic “as-above-so-below” symbols, and other symbols occur in numerous scenes throughout most Hollywood movies and TV shows. Some are more blatant, while others are more subtle.
One occultic reference is found in the Star Wars movies: “May the Force be with you.” This phrase is what witches use to greet each other. The late David J. Meyer, who was a former witch who became a Christian, wrote:
'This is the oldest con game ever hatched out of hell. As a real witch, I learned about the two sides of "the force." Apparently, so do many "Christian" leaders. When real witches have sabats and esbats and meet as a coven, they greet each other by saying "Blessed be", and when they part, they say "The Force be with you." Both sides of this "Force" are Satan. It is not a good side of the force that overcomes the bad side of the force, but rather it’s the blood of Jesus Christ that destroys both supposed sides of the satanic "Force."’ ("Harry Potter?...”).
The Lord of the Rings movies are filled with witchcraft. David J. Meyer wrote an article titled “A Former Witch Looks At The Lord Of The Rings [sic].” Meyer said that as a former witch, he “can spot witchcraft in a moment, and I recognize it well” ("A Former Witch…”). He had “practiced astrology, palmistry, and numerology among other devices of the craft” ("A Former Witch…”).
Meyer wrote: (Emphasis added)
‘The first thing a neophyte or beginner witch is taught is that there is a “force.” The “force” has two sides and can be controlled by magic spells, words, potions, incantations, rope magic, rings, amulets, and so on[.…] Witches also teach that battles are fought in the Middle Earth and in the astral plane causing upheavals both above and below. […] witches emphasize that good must triumph over evil, but it is all witchcraft.’
‘[…] The ring [of Frodo] has an inscription on which is written a message in the witchcraft language of runes. We must remember that these runes are real and are used in the occult. […] The runes on the ring are interpreted as follows: “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them”’ ("A Former Witch…”).
More can be said about the blatant and subtle witchcraft in movies (such as Star Wars, Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc.). The Bible tells us:
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 (Emphasis added)
9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Movie themes also contain a central agenda which is harmonious with the Illuminati / pagan / New Age / New World Order agenda. Their agenda is to have a unified world, ruled under one powerful man--the Antichrist--who causes every one to worship him and receive a mark on their forehead or hand. Their goal it to set up a "Big Brother" system of control over the entire planet.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Anyone who does not get the mark or worship him will be killed. Many movies have these same themes throughout their plots, but they often portray this world leader (Antichrist) as being good.
Witches call up demons by means of demonic symbols and rituals. These evil beings are servants of Satan, the angel who rebelled against God. Their goals are to deceive and to lead people away from the truth and into rebellion against God. Movies, TV shows, Rock Music (that is another topic), video games, false doctrines, false religions, etc. are for the purpose of leading people away from the true God and away from eternal salvation.
THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR
Satan’s sin was his pride and his belief that he should be worshipped and revered as God (Isaiah 14:12-15). Satan hated and rebelled against the Creator God, the only true God. By powerful deception, Satan led astray a third of God’s angels in rebellion against God (Revelation 12:4).
God cast them out of His Holy realm into the realm we call outer space or the air and Satan became the “prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2). He is called the “god of this world” in 2 Corinthians 4:4.
2 Corinthians 4:4
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Satan is in charge of planet Earth because Adam lost control when he and Eve disobeyed God and sinned in eating from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Sin became part of man’s nature after this fall.
3:1 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?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 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.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 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.
The same one who said to the woman, “Ye shall not surely die” is the same one who is telling people today, “There is no harm in a little sin. Don’t worry about Hell. There is no Hell. And, if there was a placed called Hell, you won’t be going there.” This is a lie from Satan. He told Eve she would never die if she disobeyed God. Eve did die. Adam did die. Death has passed onto the whole human race. We all get old and die. That is a fact of our existence.
Another lie Satan and his minions tell us is that there is no life after death or that you will never go to Hell. Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”.
Satan (the devil) will be judged at the appointed time. He is not going to get away with rebelling against God.
Revelation 20:10 says, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
If your name is not in the book of life, you cannot enter Heaven. How do you get your name in the book of life?
REPENT from your sin (be willing to turn away from your sin) (Acts 3:19).
BELIEVE in Jesus Christ that He is God’s Only Begotten Son who came to Earth to die on a wooden cross for your (and my) sins (Romans 10:9-10).
MAKE Jesus Christ your Savior and Lord (Luke 16:13 and Mark 8:34-35).
Then, SEEK God with all your heart. Seek to have a relationship with Him (through Jesus Christ of course).
If you believe in Jesus Christ and who He is and what He did, you can pray to God and ask Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior.
Know that your own works cannot save you. The wicked are judged according to their works, but no one is justified (considered righteous) by their works. Ephesians and Galatians and other books of the Bible talk about this.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
It is also true that if you do not choose to repent from the sin God is showing you, you cannot enter Heaven because you would be wanting your sin instead of Jesus. This is also true for a Christian. We must not let sin rule over us.
13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
(Note: Those who do not overcome [by repenting from the sin God convicts them about and by making Jesus Christ their Lord] will have their name blotted out of the book of life. They would love their sin more than God. Remember, you cannot serve God and mammon. Luke 16:13.)__________________________________________________________________________
