I've been focused this week on what - for want of a better expression - I am calling "Apocalypse Theater." Well, just this week I finished reading a book by alternative researcher and colleague Nick Redfern, a man whose research I respect and whose ability to ferret out the strange or bizarre story and report on it accurately without intruding biases into it, I respect even more. The book is called Final Events: and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife.

While I hope in the future to comment more at length in the members' only area on what can best be described as the "Apocalypse Agenda," I had to share the following lengthy quotation from his book, because it is just a small sampling of its very thought-provoking contents:

"In January 2010, the mainstream American media focused a wealth of attention on a startling and weird revelation: namely, that coded biblical messages were being inscribed on high-powered rifle sights designated for use by the U.S. military. The maker of the sights, a Michigan-based outfit called Trijicon, signed a $650 million, multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 such sights to the MArine Corps. Trijicon was founded by one Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian who was killed in a plane crash in South Africa in 2003.

"Although Army regulations specifically and absolutely prohibit the proselytizing of any religion in Iraq and Afghanistan - specifically to lay to rest any claims that the U.S. military uis on some sort of religious 'crusade' - this did not stop the sights from being distributed and utilized. One of the citations on the gun sights read: 'For God, who commanded the light to shine our of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.' Very notably, other messages on the rifle sights come from the End-Times-dominated Book of Revelation.

"Michael Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) said of the 'Jesus Rifles': 'It's literally pushing fundamentalist Christianity at the point of a gun against the people that we're fighting. We're emboldening an enemy.' Rather disturbingly, U.S> military personnel told Weinstein that their commanders were referring to these weapons as 'spiritually transformed firearm(s) of Jesus Christ.'"(p. 222).

What disturbs me most here is the implied alliance between the type of apocalyptic theology that is so widely embraced in America, and which many Americans in their theological illiteracy assume to be "historical biblical Christianity", and the Pentagon. When one adds to this the idea advanced by some that the whole "tribulation-rapture" scenario as most people currently understand it may itself have been a deliberately created and concocted doctrine, and that it was a doctrine apparently held not only by key advisers in the Reagan era, the Bush I, era, and the Bush II era, and couples that with the fact that many of these advisers also had connections to "fraternal societies," and one gets a very murky picture indeed.

While this is not the only disturbing thing that emerges in Redfern's book, it does reinforce in my mind the absolute necessity for people to wake up spiritually. Religion is still the most potent socially-organizing force we know, and nothing casts such a dark and sinister shadow on the future as the implied alignment between this sort of apocalyptic expectation and the Pentagon. Ponder it long and hard, and you will be as "shocked and awed" as I, and, I hope, as resolute in combating it as I.

    For one thing you are confusing Apocalypse with Ragnarok the correct translation of the word is the revealing the word they should be using is Armageddon these fools don’t know what they are talking about or reading presto-educated religiose of all beliefs are being used to do their masters bidding and control the thoughts of these people and enslave or kill the rest of us.

    • Christine on April 10, 2011 at 9:01 pm

      well, the thing is, the way the popular use of the term Apocalypse, apocalyptic,
      is, it refers to the contents of that revealing, which involves a lot of disasters.
      If Dr. Farrel were to say “Ragnarok Theater” most people wouldn’t know what
      he was talking about, and the few who did recognize the term, when they
      run across a link to this post showing on Google, would either think that this
      forum is about nordic mythology, or come over here and whine that we aren’t
      devoting enough space to the “master race.”

      There is the actual meaning of a word, and there is how the word has come
      to be used, what it means to most people, in a given time frame (like now).

    Joseph, I’d be very interested to hear your take on things like the Zeitoun/Assyiut apparitions of the Virgin and phenomena like myrrh-bearing relics and icons. I guess this is the kind of forum where I can get away with saying this out loud– I’ve personally witnessed both phenomena before. When the Zeitoun apparitions occured in Egypt, some Muslim detractors claimed that it was a “trick of the Americans.” I visited Zeitoun, and I don’t know what I think about it. The myrrh-bearing icon thing and Holy Fire in Jerusalem on Pascha have been around for centuries, before we’ve had access to HAARP sorts of torsion/scalar technologies, but the glut of modern Marian apparition phenomena look very much like control mechanisms to me.

    Just a thought on this apocalypse theater: could it be that the HAARP or whatever was killing birds and causing earthquakes in the Arkansas areas was to destablize the numerous reactors along the new madrid like a quake did in Japan…could it be that if “they” could start the quake here – they could also ‘kill’ the reactors? How does this thought fit into your topic today – several ways – “Bible Belt” numerous evangelical colleges/groups and ‘churches’ are headquartered in surrounding areas, (remember a few miles into Texas is/was “Waco” and their beliefs no matter what side you are on with that one). Besides the “Bible Belt” itself the Masonic headquarters is not far from there either. Is someone against them and their handlers or what? Third, it is a Clinton backdrop – there are several ways to look at that – against him and his handlers (like the Wacoits were) or that he said ‘so put all it in my back yard-where is the $’…. either way — the apocalypse theater is being staged — I don’t want to be a stage hand when the ‘play’ has its opening ‘night’ — rehearsals are enough for me. As for the ‘churches’ that want the ‘left behind’ type rapture – they are deceived — could their handlers actually be for this so they ‘look right’ in their preaching, etc. How would that play out if entire church goers disappeared (into camps, etc) on a Sunday morning…would these TV preachers still be around to get money from those that were ‘left behind’? Humm many thoughts

    To add yet more fuel to this pyre, another interesting twist from our friends in Vatican City about the rise of Satanism (they ought to know…..):

    They are, of course, blaming the Internet. (At least they aren’t blaming Global Warming….)

    People have been worrying about the world coming to an end for close to 12,000 years now, which is about the amount of time which has transpired since the world did nearly come to an end when Atlantis crumbled into the sea and tremendous portions of earth’s land masses were inundated by water. Maybe this fear is legitimate, something we have never forgotten, and a holdover from that great cataclysm? Or maybe this fear is even older than that? Maybe the human species has nearly eradicated itself or been eradicated by nature so many times in the course of our millions of years history that that fear of species extinction is hardwired into our consciousness or genetic code?

    And as old as this fear may be, you can wager there have always been people around exploiting this fear. People in fear are people who can not think for themselves. The millennium change of 999 was a source of tremendous anxiety and societal upheaval with many religious cults popping up and claiming the world was going to end. No different than 1999. All based on a completely arbitrary calendar which commences at a point of time based on nothing astronomical or astrological but solely on a rough approximation of the birth of Jesus Christ. Today is no different than 999. Societal fear of the apocalypse is being exploited by the Babylon banksters in order to manipulate the masses to prepare for the changes that the Babylon banksters will hope to instigate under the guise of the apocalypse.

    What is most interesting and of the greatest interest to humanity and the earth itself is that an event has occurred this past winter solstice that truly will be life and earth changing. On December 21, 2010 the Sun, Earth, and Moon were in direct alignment with the Dark Sun and the Galactic Center. The Dark Sun is the Second unseeable Sun in our solar system which the Hindus (remember the blueprints for the Bell in the ancient Sanskrit texts?) were well aware of and modern astronomy is just dabbling with currently. This alignment last occurred 12,000 years ago, only then the Dark Sun was eclipsing our Sun from the beneficial Cosmic Rays of the Galactic Center. And what else happened 12,000 years ago? Tremendous earth changes and the destruction of Atlantean civilization. It was the beginning of a descending cycle in human spirituality which bottomed in what the Hindus call the Kali Yuga. (I believe Jesus’ appearance at the lowest point of the Kali Yuga is no coincidence). You may all recall the total lunar eclipse on this past winter solstice? This heralds the ascending cycle of human spirituality or the return of Christ (Krishna) Consciousness on the planet. Our fiery Sun is now the recipient of of the spiritual sustenance of the Galactic Sun with very little obstruction from the Dark Sun. We are now in a most opportune time for human spiritual growth. Wether there will be earth changes to coincide with this rise in human consciousness is anybody’s guess but the increase in Solar activity is certainly noteworthy.

    What this also means is that the Babylon banksters, the Lords of the Kali Yuga and the worshippers of the Black Sun, are now in their descent. Their era of ascendancy is now over and their grip on power will now diminish. They will have to work many times harder just to maintain what they have now but even this will slip with time– now their enemy.

    Rejoice! Bask in the Cosmic rays of the Galactic Sun! Live without fear and always defend the Truth for Truth is the religion of Old and returning once more! The Age of Lies is finished!

      Jesus….you mean Joshua, is a myth.

    I’m incredibly excited you are commenting on the “Apocalypse Agenda”

  8. Vinnie on April 3, 2011 at 8:53 am

    Has anyone considered how this end time Christianity, coincidentally developed at around the same time as the zionist movement had it’s beginning? It might be interesting to see who was behind the financing of both of these movements considering how they appear today as part of a tag team playing out on in the current world scene.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on April 3, 2011 at 12:59 pm

      BINGO… both are completely artificial and both are departures from the orthodoxies of their respective religions and both in my mind were deliberately fabricated doctrines

      • Vinnie on April 3, 2011 at 1:35 pm

        Stepping out on a limb I’d suggest that all the political “isms” are a part of the dialectic designed to create constant chaos allowing for ever more control and power over the peoples of the world. In the last three hundred or so years, the rothchilds have completed the alchemical feat of transmuting debt/fiat currency through central banking and the unposition of world wide commercial credit that seeks to engulf and consume the entire planet. Every war, every boom and bust have been created and funded by them and through this mechanism.
        What we’re witnessing is their last ditch effort to fasten themselves to all the private wealth and productivity and to establish a mercantilist system globally, with population reduction and a cashless one world currency.
        The next thing to connect are the ancient bloodlines to the international bankers who’ve married into them and the spiritual element that they use to energize their activities.

      • Spirit Splice on April 4, 2011 at 11:46 am

        Lest an “orthodox” band wagon be created, It should be pointed out that it is still a religious myth centered around a likely non-existent personage.

        “The land of Egypt, the praises of which you have been recounting to me, my dear Servianus, I have found to be wholly light-minded, unstable, and blown about by every breath of rumour. There those who worship Serapis are, in fact, Christians, and those who call themselves bishops of Christ are, in fact, devotees of Serapis.” Historia Augusta 8.

        • photios on April 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm

          Because there is a huge commonality between Osiris and Christ, why would that make any of them less real? The uniqueness of each might not necessarily hold, but it seems you are using the colloquial use of the term ‘myth’ which is both artificial and does not follow from that said commonality.

          There might possibly be more to the story, but writing it off doesn’t do justice to either one.

        • Michael on April 5, 2011 at 11:59 pm

          Spirit Splice, you’re assertion is a tad silly. Whether or not jesus was the Son of God, etc etc, no serious academics argue anymore that he didn’t exist.

          • Christine on April 6, 2011 at 12:10 am

            not only that, the people who were promoting the “myth” of Jesus,
            did so despite persecution and torture and death, and there was
            absolutely no government support (merely times of ignoring) for
            Christianity until Constantine the Great, whose mother was a
            Christian. the times of ignoring may have been partly the work
            of Christians in position of influence, as there were a very very
            few, but there was nothing to create this “myth” or that could have
            done so.

            Back in the days that Christianity was still seen as Jewish, some
            pagan writer mentioned some riots that occurred in Rome
            involving some followers of one “Chrestus.” obviously Christ was
            known by people back when the Roman authorities didn’t know
            squat about Him. Before the persecutions against Christians
            got started big time. art referring to Him goes back to scribbles
            in the catacomb tombs and on some Christian burials. By the
            time of Constantine, without government support and despite
            government opposition, Christianity had converted half the empire.

    I am so encouraged to see this kind of reasoning come to the fore. I have been depressed to see American evangelical religion in decline for so many years.

    The increasing influence of “Rapture believers” by author’s books such as the so-called “Left Behind” series have left us with a church ripe for deception of a magnitude never heard of before now. Rapture fervor exists today to the point that all that one of these “believers” may require would be to see “wonders in the sky” to accept a false Christ as God. Since they believe that they will be spared the tribulation, they will surmise they have been transported to another realm.

    All the parts are in place…Holographic projections, signs and wonders, Aliens, Disclosure, New World Order, and finally a strong charismatic world leader.

    DECEPTION complete.

      Very apt observation.
