Never Say Never Again

Eternal battle for the domination of the world begins.

 

In the fourth major stage of the monomyth, the return to the ordinary world, the hero decides whether to return from the world of fantasy to the place he was before. In doing so he normally finds himself facing more challenges which he must overcome in order to apply his boon to the world. The challenges may seem just as insurmountable as the ones he has already faced, but for him they shouldn’t be as difficult as defeating his demons because now he is empowered by his own merit rather than having to rely on outside assistance. Having come face to face with God and atoned himself of his sins through his tribulations, he is now fit for the role of God’s messenger. Whatever he does, it is done in the service of the one who had originally called him to the adventure.

And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place. And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:6-7

 

Perhaps the most important thing to realize about the end of the world is that salvation does not consist in acknowledging the veracity of some historical event such as the death and resurrection of Yahshuah. It consists in living righteously and being in the right place at the right time. Belief is not the same thing as faith. Belief leads to inaction; faith is action. Abraham received the Promised Land as an inheritance for his offspring specifically because he went where he was told, when he was told. Had he not done what he was told, his belief would have availed him nothing. So when Abraham Simpson prophesies the destruction of Springfield in The Simpsons Movie (2007), the citizens of Springfield ought to act:

The events leading up to the end of the world will begin at the place on Earth which corresponds to the Galactic Center. In Resident Evil: Extinction (2007), Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen, who also plays the Illuminist Manfred Powell in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) locates Project Alice in the desert of the Southwest United States by triangulating Alice’s position from the Umbrella Corporation’s facilities in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Oxnard, California:

This is an image of the same area taken from Google Earth:

 

 

 

The reason this location is analogous to the Galactic Center has been discussed in chapter 3. The fact that it is analogous is what makes it significant to the events we will discuss now. These events are depicted in many films, but none so well as Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). It is important to keep in mind that Cairo (chi rho, i.e. the labarum, the sun symbol by which Constantine conquered his enemies) is a metaphor for Jerusalem, the Giza Plateau signifies the Temple Mount, the Great Pyramid represents the Temple of Solomon, and that Tanis represents the location of Project Alice once it has been moved from its original spot (the path between Phoenix, Oxnard and the site of the Luxor in Las Vegas). Also, the Elect of Israel are represented by the Germans/Nazis in the mind of Spielberg, who uses political sensitivities to demonize them and create sympathy for the Jews.

The “eye” or map key is represented by the Staff of Ra (i.e. the Eye of Ra) in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Before one can find the location of the Ark, he must first know where to dig. Before he can know where to dig, he must first be in possession of the Staff of Ra. Then he has to find the map room and place the staff in a certain place at a certain time when the Sun (Holy Spirit) shows the path.

The Illuminati believe that the Ark is capable of resurrecting Lucifer (the “great evil” cited above), so they have as much interest in finding it as anyone. (Some of their other reasons for coveting it will be explained later.) It is also capable of saving the Elect from the certain doom that would otherwise await them (the “great good”). The balance of forces will be upset when the Ark is found and its power is unleashed. It is not an exaggeration to say that whoever controls the Ark controls the fate of mankind, but such responsibility is not easily handled or merited, nor casually entrusted.

The name of Ahm Shere from The Mummy Returns (2001) has both intentional and synchromystical significance. Am or ahm is ‘people’ or ‘many’ in ancient Hebrew while cher/chère (pronounced like ‘share’) means ‘precious’ in French. So ahm shere has the meaning of ‘precious people,’ i.e. the “set-apart ones” or the Elect/saints. AHM is also an acronym for Acutely Hazardous Material and Adaptive Handoff Management.

 

Raiders of the Lost ArkRaiders of the Lost Ark

Do you realize what the Ark is? It’s a transmitter; it’s a radio for speaking to God.

 

Most films portray the Ark as a box (the Ark of the Covenant), but it can be represented by any artifact or sacred relic. Sometimes there are two where one is a fake as in the case of the real Ark of the Covenant which has a replica in Axum, Ethiopia, officially claimed by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to be the true Ark. In 2009 it was reported that the Church’s patriarch announced he would show the Ark to the world while visiting the Vatican but later reports suggest the rumor wasn’t true or that he changed his mind. Considering the fact that the Church has commercialized its claim, if it was true then it would certainly make some sort of effort to prove it. Either way, the patriarch and all of his predecessors have lied about having it in their possession. Even if the queen of Sheba was from Ethiopia as the Ethiopians claim, as opposed to the “far east” as the Bible says, and even if Solomon had had a child by her, it still would have been impossible for him to have inherited it when the Ark turns up in the Biblical narrative 4 centuries after the events of the spurious Ethiopian story. What this means is that there is one Ark in existence, the one which was saved from the sack of Jerusalem in 587 BC, but which few people know the location of, and a fake one which may not even exist at all as a forgery because only 2 people in the world are allowed to see it and at least one of them is a liar.

The Ark itself is a high technology device capable of creating an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) strong enough to open a trans-dimensional gateway. This is why the Illuminati covet it so much. However, it is destined to be found by Israelites who are aware of their Israelite heritage, not Jews or Zionists. The Israeli Antiquities Authority will undoubtedly claim it as its own, though it has no legitimate claim to it either as a relic of their Turkic-Slavic-Babylonian heritage or as an artifact within their borders (as it is outside of Israel). As the Ark is both a powerful weapon and the world’s most sacred ancient relic, this will create an international controversy and give Israel a pretext for drawing support from the Zionists in Europe and North America to make war on the neighboring Arab states, not to mention the rebuilding of the Temple.

Although the chest is opened by an 8-pointed star in The Mummy Returns (2001), suggesting the film is pro-establishment, in fact it is adorned with the Eye of Ra flanked by the 2 birds standing on 2 pillars representing Joachim and Boaz. The Eye of Ra is positioned in front of a sun disc at the place of the Ark’s Mercy Seat (the merkabah) and the birds are obviously symbolic of the Ark’s kherubim (electrodes which are used to create the electrical arc, but universally misinterpreted as “angels” with wings).

Doom (2005) is one of the most revealing films pertaining to the Ark and especially to its discoverers. This one (Samantha Grimm, played by Rosamund Pike) is recognized by her visibly Israelite identity, in contrast with the swarthy Marine sergeant Asher (i.e. Osiris/Horus, played by Dwayne Johnson):

 

DoomDoom

-Have you found anything like this on your archaeological digs?

DoomDoom

-It could have come from another planet or something.
-What, like an alien?

 

In this anti-establishment film the Ark (which has been discovered in Nevada) transports scientists to the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) Olduvai Research Facility on Mars. The logo of the UAC (analogous to Resident Evil‘s Umbrella Corporation) is shown to be a simple depiction of the Mark of the Beast as the Eye of Providence in front of the solar disc. The Marines have been sent to clean up a mess which the corporation has made by opening the Ark.

 

DoomDoom

DoomDoom

-Something is cutting through the Ark door.
-Don’t let it get to the Ark!

 

In all cases of the Ark’s discoverers being depicted (whether there is actually a chest or portal), it is as a pair of young people, often children but never past their 30s. What motivates them is their desire to save the world from the ravages of Satan and the Illuminati. This is done by building a bridge, figuratively, from the present to the future, and spatially from Earth to the New Jerusalem. These are people over whom the Illuminati have no control because they have been set-apart and chosen by God to lead the Elect in the final conflict between good and evil at the end of the world. They are the protagonists of the monomyth where the Antichrist is the antagonist and Christ has already come and gone before them. They are prophets, the last of their kind.

The notion of the pillars which open a trans-dimensional portal so evident in the Masonic and Kabbalistic imagery, as well as in films like Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), comes from the Bible.

 

And the angel who talked with me came again and woke me, like a man who is awakened out of his sleep. And he said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl on the top of it, and seven lamps on it, with seven lips on each of the lamps that are on the top of it. And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?” Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” Zechariah 4:1-5

Then I said to him, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?” And a second time I answered and said to him, “What are these two branches of the olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the golden oil is poured out?” He said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” Then he said, These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth.” Zechariah 4:11-14

 

These passages portray 2 olive branches (the pineal and pituitary glands) which provide oil to the bowl at the top of the lampstand of 7 lamps (the crown chakra) positioned between 2 olive trees (the left and right hemispheres of the brain). The olive trees represent the twin luminaries (the Sun and Moon) which are analogous to the Law and the Prophets, and to the House of Judah and the tribes of Israel. The lampstands which are fueled by the branches are analogous to the Old Covenant (of Abraham) and the New Covenant (of Christ). The people personifying these characteristics are Moses (the lawgiver representing Judah and Dan) and Elijah (the prophet representing Ephraim and therefore Israel).

 

Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray. And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became dazzling white. And behold, two men were talking with him, Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. Luke 9:28-31

And Peter said to Yahshuah, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified. Matthew 17:4-6

 

These passages have several implications. When the Israelites came out of Egypt they were guided by a pillar of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night. When Moses came down from Mt. Sinai (Exodus 34:29-35) his face was transfigured. It shone so bright that he had to wear a veil. When Moses and Aaron came out of the Tabernacle (Leviticus 9:23) a fire came and consumed the burnt offering to signify God’s approval of the priesthood, and the Israelites fell on their faces. Paul described the light which blinded him on the road to Damascus as brighter than the Sun (Acts 26:13-18). Christ has implied he was a time traveler and that he was not the only one. It is evident throughout scripture that Christ’s vocations included all three of the roles which required anointing (those of a prophet, a priest and a king). Moses and Elijah are the priest and the prophet, respectively, though there is overlap, and both are subject to Christ as their king (the unified consciousness, the lamp/sun).

 

“I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.” John 17:4-5

“Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24

And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. Revelation 21:23

 

In the book of Revelation the events leading up to the end of the world are precipitated by the revealing of the Two Witnesses. Their job is to delay the cataclysm by making war on the Illuminati in order to vouchsafe the safety of the Elect (the 144,000 from the 12 tribes). The end of their short story marks the beginning of the Great Tribulation, when the stargate is opened and the war between Michael (Christ) and Satan ensues in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

 

Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff [the Staff of Ra], and I was told, “Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there, but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations [goyim, i.e. Zionists], and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months. And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days [the 42 months], clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone would harm them, fire [puri, illumination] pours from their mouth and consumes their foes. If anyone would harm them, this is how he is doomed to be killed. They have the power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague, as often as they desire. And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them, and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city that symbolically is called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days some from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb, and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them. And at that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation 11:1-13

Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail. Revelation 11:19

 

This story is told countless times in different ways, but always with several of the same identifying characteristics. Hancock (2008) portrays the Two Witnesses as gods who are married, the last of their kind:

 

Hancock

Me and him, it’s just us now. The others paired up and died.

HancockHancock
Hancock

-Are there more of us?
-There were. They all died. It’s just the two of us.

 

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) portrays them as ex-lovers and a syzygy pair, with one being a rude ex-Marine commander and the other a cultured English archaeologist:

 

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of LifeLara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

-You know why you and I get along so well? We are two of a kind, me and you.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of LifeLara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

-We are nothing alike.
-I don’t think we’re alike, but I do think we’re a pair, opposite sides of the same coin.

 

Compare these depictions to what the fundamentalist Rapture cult “Christians” are expecting with their overly literal and uninformed opinions, demonstrated by Left Behind II: Tribulation Force (2002):

 

Left Behind II: Tribulation ForceLeft Behind II: Tribulation Force

Left Behind II: Tribulation ForceLeft Behind II: Tribulation Force

-See these guys?
-Who are they?
-The Witnesses. The Bible talks about two men who will appear

Left Behind II: Tribulation ForceLeft Behind II: Tribulation Force

during the Tribulation. They will preach God’s word; they will lead thousands to salvation.

Left Behind II: Tribulation ForceLeft Behind II: Tribulation Force

It’s a crucial End Times prophecy. God gives these men the power to defend themselves with fire from heaven.

 

Obviously the authors of this script haven’t even tried to interpret the Biblical narrative. We find a more reasonable depiction in The Omega Code (1999), but this too lacks insight and strains credibility.

 

The Omega CodeThe Omega Code

In Jerusalem, crowds of curious onlookers have been gathering around 2 unidentified men

The Omega CodeThe Omega Code

who are claiming to be prophets sent from God to warn the world of its coming end.

 

It seems that in this rare instance the Hollywood film industry is more reliable than other forms of media. Astute filmmakers and synchromystical clues both provide insights into the identities of the Two Witnesses and the nature of their special role in the times to come. In most cases they both have fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes to indicate their distinctly Israelite heritage.

The woman solicits the help of the man, though she often has little respect for him. She needs his help because the quest for the Ark is very dangerous and she is not prepared to defend herself because she has spent her life reading books and is unfamiliar with the world of base men. He, on the other hand, is experienced in the ways of the world and intelligent enough to avoid its traps. As he is also the only one who has seen the Ark with his own eyes and lived to tell the tale, he is the only person that can lead her to it. But first she must spring him from prison. That’s when their adventure begins.

The real-life counterpart to the secret society discussed in The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001) is the Order of Melchizedek, the order of priest-kings which governed Jerusalem before the time of Abraham and existed until the time of Christ, who was its last high priest. All authority in Israel derived from this order, which was driven into exile during the rule of King Solomon and set up the communities of Nazareth in Israel and Damascus in Judea. The mark which identifies these “Magi” in The Mummy Returns is the same as the one placed on the chest, except that both eyes appear together instead of the Eye of Ra, symbolizing unity of consciousness (enlightenment) and service to God. The orphaned protagonist who has no memory of his childhood is identified by another member of the order by this mark.

As she is in the role of Elijah, the woman in red can actually personify the Red Queen, as shown above. She is an oracle, God’s prophetess for the End Times and the agent of the Holy Spirit. As a result she has a highly advanced right brain mentality or mystic consciousness. Her visions and dreams foreshadow future events and her memory is astute enough to recall even the future of the timeline.

Both of the Two Witnesses play their parts according to the qualities of their respective perspectives and the characteristics of their genders. As Moses, the warrior for God is concerned with the more negative and restrictive side of the law of consequence. He is logical and irreligious, just as Elijah is innocent and intuitive. Although proficient in modern military tactics and strategies, as a prophet, his war is mostly a spiritual and ideological one. Together they fight against God’s enemies, particularly Lucifer and the religious establishment, a fight that has been from raging from well into Earth’s past (i.e. future).

Just like Odin, the Two Witnesses know they are going to die, because they can see the future, and this shapes everything about the way they think. They don’t have a choice in what they do because it has been preordained from the beginning of time and their job is to preserve the timeline. This makes them the constant victims of demonic attacks, just as Christ was tempted and tormented by Satan. The sackcloth they wear is as much the result of feeling a burden of responsibility which is difficult for them to bear as it is of mourning for the wickedness and depravity of humanity.

The Masons have their own ideas about the Two Witnesses. The pillars Joachim and Boaz feature prominently in Kabbalah and in Masonic symbolism. In some respects they are venerated, while in others their existence is seen merely as a stepping stone or an obstacle to the establishment of the New World Order. For example, the ritual demolition of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center mainly signifies the desire of the world powers to stop them (and what they represent). In some cases they are represented as two swords, as the Holy Spirit is likened to a dual-edged sword in scripture.

Final Destination 3Final Destination 3

The Two Witnesses are nearly always portrayed as lovers or as an older brother and younger sister. They are young enough to be naïve but knowledgeable and experienced enough to be wise. Like all other prophets, they are subject to human passions. If they lack a sense of humor or irony, it is because of the gravity of their mission. In the world’s eyes they are outcasts—mildly interesting because they are good-looking or clever, but otherwise delusional, judgmental and antisocial. Put simply, no matter where they go, they will never fit in, and the longer they stay, the more likely there will be some sort of violent confrontation. If they lack respect because of their youth, they make up for it with sophistication and charisma.

This description from Under the Mountain (2009), which is nothing if not a dramatization of the Two Witnesses story, implies that they are what we might call soulmates. In most cases this means they are married, but in this case it simply means that they are both manifestations of a single being divided into two parts. They know each other and love each other even if they have never met or have no memory of each other.

The Witnesses need each other to do their job like the left and right hemispheres need each other for the brain to function properly. Neither is a complete being as fully conscious as Christ. They must teach each other according to their individual needs. Both have learned what they already know from Christ and the Holy Spirit. One has a proficient understanding of all matters pertaining to the Bible.

Not everyone likes the Witnesses or would ever go out of their way to help them. Many hate them. No one would recognize them if they saw them on the street. To the world, they are just ordinary people—silly kids, really. When kids try to change the world and aren’t even compromising about it, the world reacts violently. Only they know who they are and they want to keep it that way, but they still have a job to do, so anyone who knows what to look for should be able to recognize them.

Most of the time the male has a name derived from a language partially descended from the original Hebrew of the tribe of Dan (Greek, Old Norse, or French as an Anglo-Norman derivation) and the female has a Hebrew name or an English name which is derived from Hebrew. In many cases the actors themselves follow the same pattern, though the actress herself is often Jewish in the cases of exceptions. For instance, in episodes 4-6 of Star Wars Luke (Greek) is played by Mark Hamill, who is ethnically Swedish, and Leia (Hebrew) is played by Carrie Fisher, whose paternal grandparents were Jews. In episodes 1-3 Anakin is played by Hayden Christensen, who is Danish and Swedish, and Padmé is played by Natalie Portman, an Israeli. Other examples include Theo (Greek) and Rachel (Hebrew) in Under the Mountain (2009), Race to Witch Mountain (2009) starring Alexander Ludwig (Greek) and AnnaSophia Robb (Hebrew-Greek), pictured above, John (Greek) and Mary (English, from Hebrew) in Hancock (2008), and The Mummy (1999) starring Brendan Fraser (French-Canadian surname) and Rachel Weisz (Jewish). Exceptions to this rule are when both characters’ Christian names are straight from Hebrew and the female’s (or scientist’s) surname is English, such as in Stargate (1994) with Jonathan O’Neil and Daniel Jackson or Knowing (2009) with Caleb Koestler and Abby Wayland. Examples such as these are in abundance. The point here is to show that the British female represents the Hebrew Old Testament and the Nordic or Greek/North American male represents the Greek New Testament.

The Island [Heaven] is real. It’s us.

 

We may recall that the lion represents the tribe of Judah (Moses) and the unicorn represents the tribe of Ephraim (Elijah). The Secret of Moonacre (2008) makes it plain that the man is Moses and the woman is Elijah by the exchange of wedding gifts:

 

The Secret of MoonacreThe Secret of Moonacre

For my daughter’s bridegroom.

The Secret of MoonacreThe Secret of Moonacre

“In turn, Sir Wolf gave his bride a unicorn, littered from the wild horses of the sea.”

 

As mentioned previously, these characters are normally played by actors with blond hair, blue eyes and generally Nordic features. This is especially true of the female, but when she doesn’t have blonde hair, then the male usually does. This is important to note because the Elect are of Israel, and the Witnesses are witnesses to the Elect. So in Pandorum (2009), for example, we see Cpl. Bower (Ben Foster) being recruited for the Tanis (Ark) mission in front of the Prussian-built Brandenburg Gate in Berlin while Nadia (Antje Traue) was recruited from the Brandenburg Institute:

Bower’s parents have obviously been cast to reflect his Nordic/Germanic Israelite heritage, while Bower as a child resembles the children of other films with the Two Witnesses theme such as Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) and Signs (2002):

Both Witnesses are played by Alexander Ludwig in The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007):

This is especially significant considering that he plays Seth in Race to Witch Mountain (2009), where he and his sister Sara (both Hebrew names) have crashed their ship in the desert near Las Vegas in pursuit of some information which their parents left on Earth. The key to retrieving this information, which Sara wears around her neck, is in the shape of Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, which has been adopted as the symbol of the ancient Norse culture. The children are being hunted by an assassin for the military establishment which wants to seize the information.

Okay, he’s got that hammer.

 

The same symbolism is used in The Mummy (1999) when Beni tries to steal the loot and a sword sticks out of his pack to show the Jewish subversion of the Israelite identity alluded to by Mjölnir:

 

The MummyThe Mummy

 

 

The purpose of the Witnesses is to give the Holy Spirit (or Holy Grail) to the world and provide a means for salvation from the coming cataclysm. As Campbell says, the boon is the goal of the quest. The hero ventures out from the world he has lived in specifically to acquire it so that he can share it. The previous stages of the adventure are necessary to prepare him to acquire the Grail where others have failed.

The gods and goddesses then are to be understood as embodiments and custodians of the elixir of Imperishable Being but not themselves the Ultimate in its primary state. What the hero seeks through his intercourse with them is therefore not finally themselves, but their grace, i.e., the power of their sustaining substance. This miraculous energy-substance and this alone is the Imperishable … the light of the ultimate illumination of the saint and sage. Its guardians dare release it only to the duly proven.

I’d get on the Internet, send out a major distress signal: Hackers of the world, unite!

PandorumPandorum

If you can get me to the reactor bay, I can reset the cycle [timeline] manually.

 

As the Bible clearly indicates, the Witnesses will be killed when they nearly accomplish their task, which the Devil and the powers of this world cannot allow. They go to their deaths willingly, but as hesitantly as when Christ prayed to be spared of the physical torment and murder which he also had to endure to be resurrected and glorified. Like Christ, the Witnesses don’t want to die, but in order to fulfill their roles in the service of God and of mankind, they must. This is the ultimate measure of faith and what makes them (and whoever follows them) truly worthy of inheriting the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:12-13

 

As we have seen, the Witnesses will be resurrected and ascend in the sight of the whole world. Regarding apotheosis (the exaltation of a common person to divinity status), Campbell says “Those who know, not only that the Everlasting lies in them, but that what they, and all things, really are is the Everlasting, dwell in the groves of the wish fulfilling trees, drink the brew of immortality, and listen everywhere to the unheard music of eternal concord.” So death is not a bad thing to the one who is about to receive his inheritance, and whose faith is sufficient to not fear it.

This still leaves the problem of the greater group of the Elect, however. Satan will not stop persecuting them just because the Witnesses have been taken out of the way. On the contrary, this will mark the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Not just the Elect, but all people will be affected by the war against the saints. The masses under the sway of the Illuminati will suffer the most. The Elect will be blamed for all of their troubles just as the Witnesses were before them.

 

X2X2

Mutants: since the discovery of their existence, they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred.

X2X2

Across the planet debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain,

X2X2
X2

or simply a new species of humanity, fighting for their share of the world? Either way it is an historical fact:
sharing the world has never been humanity’s defining attribute.

 

Notice the placement of the star at the Third Eye in the human-shaped nebula from X2 (2003). The Illuminati and the producers of anti-establishment films both agree that we are on the cusp of a new stage of human evolution (whether or not they believe in the Theory of Evolution) resulting from the unlocking of the mysteries of the brain. This will be accomplished by the Elect during the Millennial Kingdom and is the subject of the Two Witnesses story as portrayed in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), where Rufus is sent from the 27th century to preserve the timeline from Lucifer’s attempt to murder them prematurely. Rufus is Latin for ‘red,’ so this is a visitation by an agent of the Red Queen.

Bill and Ted’s Excellent AdventureBill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

So now I have to travel back in time to help them out. If I fail to keep these two on the correct path, the basis of our society will be in danger.

 

It is at this point of visitation that the Witnesses realize that they themselves have been sent back in time for the same reason (to save humanity). In the case of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure they visit themselves in the past to tell themselves what they must do, but in other films like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) they intentionally avoid their past selves so as to not disrupt the timeline.

-Yes, that’s why Death is working backwards!

Final Destination 2Final Destination 2

It’s tying up all the loose ends, sealing the rift once and for all.

 

The reason they need to go into the past (i.e. to be born) is that without them the whole world would succumb to Lucifer’s evil intentions. As they, like Christ and the other prophets of old, are his mortal enemies, they are the victims of his terrible retribution. It’s not enough that he murders them in cold blood and persecutes their friends to death. He also needs to slander and defame them when they are gone.

Lucifer also knows that he can’t possibly have what he wants without the Witnesses’ assistance. This is why they are allowed to accomplish their mission for the most part. He needs the Grail (or the Ark), which he can’t get himself, but he doesn’t want them to use it against him. If he kills them prematurely, then he will die too and his plans will come to ruin.

Lucifer is so malicious and so conceited that he thinks he can defeat the Creator and the Creation itself. So there is no reason for him to stop at the death of his enemies who are just a couple of kids in his eyes. He will hunt and try to kill the Elect by force, and when that fails he will try to win them over with his charisma and his lies. It is up to the Witnesses to warn them before they are taken out of the way.

Preparations are nearly completed for the upcoming United Nations World Summit. Nearly every invitation

X-MenX-Men

Leaders of over 200 nations will discuss issues ranging from the world’s economic climate and weapons
treaties to the mutant phenomenon and its impact on our world stage.

X-MenX-Men

Many American legislators have contended that debate over mutant issues should be the primary focus of
what is, on the surface, at least, a strictly diplomatic affair.

 

The politicians will use their war against the Elect to further their agenda of introducing more draconian measures to gradually lead the masses into a state of totalitarian subjection until finally the semblance of democratically elected representative government will cease to be a reality even in pretense. This is the stage of the plan which Albert Pike was referring to when he wrote that “everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.” This, in turn, will lead to the incarceration of anyone who resists the tyranny and ultimately, if divine intervention doesn’t prevent it first, genocide.

Only then you realize, while you’re talking about organizing and committees, the extermination has already begun.

 

The Elect will be forced to fight for their lives, but their survival will depend on divine intervention. This necessarily means they must be together in the right place at the right time, which also means they will be an easy target. It will be, for them, the ultimate test of faith.

When their mission is accomplished and they have been resurrected, the Witnesses have no desire to go back to the world. If they are asked to return they will refuse. According to Campbell:

When the hero-quest has been accomplished, through penetration to the source … the adventurer still must return with his life-transmuting trophy. The full round, the norm of the monomyth, requires that the hero shall now begin the labor of bringing the runes of wisdom … back into the kingdom of humanity, where the boon may redound to the renewing of the community, the nation, planet or the ten thousand worlds. But the responsibility has been frequently refused. Even the Buddha, after his triumph, doubted whether the message of realization could be communicated, and saints are reported to have died while in the supernal ecstasy. Numerous indeed are the heroes fabled to have taken up residence forever in the blessed isle of the unaging Goddess of Immortal Being.
