Update on Spiritual Warfare
Jul 18, 2011
As I reported last Saturday, we are engaged in spiritual warfare from July 15-20. I first learned of the problem a few days earlier, but God had us wait until the night of the 15th to begin the warfare.
All of the major religions in the world believe that they will "win in the end." In other words, they envision their own belief system to be destined for universal acceptance, thereby establishing "peace" in the world. To obtain such peace, many of these religions are "evangelistic" in the sense that they feel called to spread their message through missionary evangelism.
Sometimes that evangelism is done peacefully. At other times it is done militarily. Sometimes it is done peacefully unless it runs into resistance, in which case they often justify a more militant approach. Unfortunately, such militant evangelism has been employed even by those calling themselves "Christian."
Buddhism has its militant side as well, although they, along with most other religions, try hard to present the face of peacefulness. Most of the Buddhist militarism has arisen out of its wars with Islam, so they are usually depicted as the worst enemies. However, their texts also list as their enemies: Adam, Enoch, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mani, Muhammed, and the Mahdi, and one text calls them "the family of demonic snakes" (Shri Kalachakra I. 154).
The Dalai Lama claims to be a Priest-King. As such, he is a competitor with Jesus, who is to us the high priest after the order of Melchizedek. Jesus Christ is our Priest-King, and in our view He is the Prince of Peace and the only one through whom world peace will truly come. All of the competitors set forth their plans for world peace, but in our view only one plan will actually work. Many Christians believe this plan is militaristic, but I believe they have misunderstood the plan. Jesus will not have to bludgeon anyone into submission. It will be sufficient to see Him as He really is and to truly know Him.
The armies of Christ are not physical armies, but spiritual. And that brings us to our current spiritual warfare. We war not against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces. The World Trade Center has been of special significance since 1991, as we read in an article from the Washington Post. Speaking of the Sand Mandala that was constructed last week:
"The article cites Clark Strand, former editor of Tricycle, a Buddhist magazine: 'The most significant thing about this is the time and place, 10 years after 9/11, and in a place where big decisions are being made about the planet.'
"Yes, 10 years after 9/11! But what did happen exactly ten years before 9/11? In 1991 in New York City a so-called Kalachakra Sand Mandala was constructed, then destroyed by the Dalai Lama, and the sand was poured into the water near the World Trade Center. Two years later in 1993 another Wheel of Time (Kalachakra) Sand Mandala was built by Tibetan Monks in the lobby of Tower One. . . . If they did have any magical effect at all, it was to produce exactly the opposite [of peace]."
The Dalai Lama's Wheel of Time appears to relate to the Hezekiah Factor, at least in this case. His spiritual work at or near the World Trade Center in 1991 saw results ten years later in 2001. So now he has seen fit in 2011 to do another at the Verizon Center between the White House and the Congress. We have now blocked the effects of this act of spiritual warfare--as of the night of July 15.
From their viewpoint, what exactly was this ceremony supposed to accomplish? Here is a description:
The thekpu is the special house where the mandala is built. There is a brocade throne where the Vajra Master, in this case His Holiness the Dalai Lama, sits to give the initiation and the altar to the Kalachakra deity contains elaborate offerings and ritual objects.
One purpose is to enthrone the Dalai Lama.
On the first day of the ceremony, a representative of the students requests that the Vajra Master give the initiation, and he consents, showing his great compassion for his students. Next the Vajra Master asks the local spirits for permission to use their home. Usually the spirits at first do not want to cooperate so to appease them, the assisting monks perform the Dance of the Earth, making symbolic gestures with their hands and feet. The prayers, music and dance subdue all interfering spirits.
After the dance, the Dalai Lama receives permission to proceed with the ceremony from Tenma, the earth spirit, on behalf of all the local spirits. The mandala will house many of the thousands of deities found in Tibetan Buddhism during the ceremony. . . .
On the third day, water mixed with a special spice, saffron, is scattered on the lines of the mandala; with it, the Vajra Master rubs out certain lines on the mandala blueprint, opening the entrance ways for the 722 deities who will reside in the mandala during the ceremony. In order to enter our world, they need a clean and pure place to stay. Grains of wheat are also placed on the mandala at this time, representing cushions where the gods and goddesses are invited to sit. . . .
In the last part of the ceremony, the Dalai Lama says prayers, thanking the 722 deities for their participation and requesting them to leave the mandala and return to their sacred homes.
This entire ceremony is meant to open up a spiritual "portal" that gives those 722 Bhuddist gods access to Washington D.C., supposedly to bring world peace. It was requested that they "return to their sacred homes," but what they do not tell you is that they open portals in this manner to make way for the Buddhization of America with the Dalai Lama as the King-Priest over America. He is guardian of the portal for these 722 gods.
Someone had to "just say no." Ten years ago on July 16, 2001 the archangels of God were enthroned. On page 175 of The Wars of the Lord (chapter 31), I wrote this:
"By the night of July 12 this final world battle had been won. A little work was left for the next few days. Apollyon was the last to be bound on July 14, and then God installed the archangels over the earth's continents, each in his place on July 16, 2001."
So when we reached the 10-year "Hezekiah Factor" two days ago, it happened to coincide with the day that the Dalai Lama had hoped to establish his spiritual portal to influence legislation at the White House and the Congress in Washington D.C. Therein lies the conflict. Will America become Buddhist with the Dalai Lama ruling as King-Priest? Or will Jesus Christ rule as the Melchizedek High Priest?
This warfare is lasting five full days, because there is much more to this than just the one Kalachakra. Because they overstepped their bounds, we now have legal cause to take down ALL 300 of their Kalachakra portals that they have constructed over the years.
