The Overcoming Flesh Angel
Revelation 16:10, 11 says,
10 And the fifth angel poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of pain, 11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.
The fourth and fifth bowls are closely related. The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the “sun,” which represents kings and leadership in general. The fifth angel poured out his bowl upon “the throne of the beast.” Hence, the kings and their thrones are both judged.
The psalms sung at the time of these two drink offerings at the feast of Tabernacles are also closely related. The fourth bowls of wine and water were poured out while singing Psalm 94:16-23, while the previous verses (Psalm 94:8-15) were sung with the fifth bowls. Both passages are part of the same psalm, but in reverse order.
Since the throne of the beast comes under divine judgment in the fifth bowl, one would think that this throne would be mentioned in Psalm 94:8-15. However, the “throne of destruction” appears in Psalm 94:20, which is identified with the fourth bowl. Hence, the two bowls seem intertwined.
Day 5: Psalm 94:8-15
The role of the Overcoming Flesh Angel (my personal revelation) is seen clearly in the passage that was read while pouring out the bowls of water and wine on the fifth day of Tabernacles. Psalm 94:8-10 says,
8 Pay heed, you senseless among the people; and when will you understand, stupid ones? 9 He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He who formed the eye, does He not see? 10 He who chastens the nations, will He not rebuke, even He who teaches man knowledge?
This angel is assigned to change people from “senseless” and “stupid” to overcomers by means of divine judgment, thereby fulfilling the prophecy of the water and wine together. He “chastens the nations” in order to teach men knowledge. The judgment of the “wine” therefore has a good purpose, because it is accompanied by the “water” of the Holy Spirit. So Psalm 94:12-15 continues,
12 Blessed is the man whom Thou dost chasten, O Lord, and dost teach out of Thy law; 13 that Thou mayest grant him relief from the days of adversity, until a pit is dug for the wicked. 14 For the Lord will not abandon His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance. 15 For judgment will again be righteous; and all the upright in heart will follow it.
We may view this on two levels. First, if we distinguish between “the wicked” and the “senseless among the people” who are also called the “stupid ones,” we note that both groups need some chastisement. The difference is that the senseless ones repent, while the wicked do not. One group is taught “out of Thy law,” while the others refuse to learn His laws and His ways. This viewpoint shows us how God will separate His people from the wicked, bringing “relief” to His people and “a pit” for the wicked. This separation occurs at the time of Babylon’s judgment.
The broader view, of course, is for a later time at the Great White Throne judgment, where the wicked will be turned, and every knee will bow. All will “swear allegiance” to Christ, as Isaiah 45:23 tells us, and Paul adds in Phil. 2:11 that this will be “to the glory of God the Father.”
It is the responsibility of the Overcoming Flesh Angel to teach the law to the “senseless” ones among God’s people, so that they understand the mind of God. By His power, their ears and eyes are opened. The psalmist reminds us that God created ears and eyes. He reminded Moses of this in similar fashion, telling him in Exodus 4:11,
11 And the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him dumb or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?”
At the end of Israel’s forty-year wilderness experience, Moses said in Deut. 29:4,
4 Yet to this day the Lord has not given you a heart to know, nor eyes to see, nor ears to hear.
This blindness and deafness, seen in the church in the wilderness, has also prevailed in the church during the Pentecostal Age of the Seven Churches. These are the “senseless” and “stupid” people whose eyes and ears will be opened as their flesh is overcome. Such teaching is necessary for them to be part of the Kingdom in the Age to come, for anyone who wants to retain the right to sin will have to do so in “outer darkness,” rather than in the Kingdom of Light.
This great moment of history, where blind eyes are healed, is to be compared and contrasted to the great healing center of Aesculapius in the city of Pergamum.
Pergamum is Satan’s Throne
The throne (or seat) of the beast appears to be connected to Pergamum, or Pergamos, “where Satan’s throne is” (Rev. 2:13). It was where the great throne of Zeus was located, as we noted in chapter 14 of Book 1. (Note the caduceus in the lap of Baphomet in the picture on page 30.) There is a connection between “Satan’s throne” and “the throne of the beast” in Rev. 16:10.
In his book, The Latter Rain, Jay Atkinson writes an article, saying,
“Pergamum was the famous site of the temple to Aesculapius, the Greek god of healing supposed to be the founder of medical science and immortalized in the sky as the constellation Ophiuchus. The city became the seat of Babylonian sun worship, a noble center of idolatry and demon controlled religions with splendid temples to Nature. People from all over the Roman empire came to seek healing in this pagan temple and the shrine area was inhabited by thousands of harmless snakes. On the hills of Acropolis stood resplendent buildings, statuary, palaces, and the great library as well as the temples and an altar of ‘Zeus the Savior.’ Medicine and science was worshipped here and the symbol of their worship was the serpent. The snake was carried down into our own day with a staff entwined with serpents called the caduceus, still using the snake as a symbol for the medical arts; Aesculapius is depicted holding the caduceus in his hand.”
The caduceus is, even today, the primary symbol of the medical profession. It can have either a positive or a negative connotation. On the negative side, the caduceus of Pergamos, “Satan’s throne,” refers to the serpent in the tree in the story of Adam and Eve. On the positive side, it was the bronze serpent in the wilderness under Moses. When the people looked upon that serpent, they were healed of the serpent bites (curse of sin). Num. 21:9 says,
9 And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.
In John 3:14, 15 and again in John 12:32, 33, Jesus was compared to that serpent that Moses lifted up in the wilderness. Some find this strange that Jesus would be compared to the serpent when He was lifted up on the cross. But in His death, He was made to be a curse for us. The bronze serpent was the antidote to the poison of the serpents that had bitten the people. That poison is sin, and the antidote was that Jesus was made a curse for us, that we might live.
This is the positive side to the caduceus, the serpent on the pole or tree. The priests in the temple of Aesculapius in Pergamos did not know the positive side of this. Their serpent-worship was a counterfeit that ended up worshipping the serpent in Genesis 3, and this made their temple “Satan’s throne.”
The Fifth Bowls Poured out in 2004
We were led to pour out the fifth bowls of water and wine in Washington D.C., the throne of the beast in our era. In April 2004 Bob Henley and I drove to Washington D.C. on a scouting trip in preparation for pouring out the fifth bowls. I was led to take a jar of water from the Mississippi River near the Island of Peace, where we had poured out the third bowls of water and wine two years earlier.
We went to Washington knowing only that we were to pour out this water somewhere in Washington on April 8 to fulfill the law of spiritual warfare found in Deut. 20:10,
10 When you approach a city to fight against it, you shall offer it terms of peace.
After walking the entire area and visiting each point on the pentagram north of the White House, we prayed to know which place to pour out the water. The Lord said to do so at Scott Circle. This street intersection is located on the forehead of the goat (Baphomet) directly north of the White House. When the city was built in the late 1700’s, the streets were designed by the Masonic builders to form a pentagram in order to dedicate the nation’s capital to Baphomet (Satan).
To high-ranking Masons, Baphomet is “the god of wisdom.” He was portrayed as having the head of a goat, but had the body of a man and breasts of a woman. He was also part dog and part bull. This was the way he was portrayed in the 19th century painting below by the well-known Mason, Eliphas Levi.
In William E. Mann’s book, The Knights Templar in the New World, p. 121 and 122, he writes:
“The Nineteenth-century occultist Alphonse Constant, a former Roman Catholic priest who took the Jewish pseudonym Eliphas Levi, wrote extensively about Baphomet as a conduit to God. According to Levi, the head of Baphomet is seen to combine the characteristics of a dog, a bull, and a goat, which are meant to represent the three sources of the pagan Mystery tradition . . . . Baphomet’s androgynous nature is emphasized by one arm being mascular and masculine while the other is of a more feminine nature.”
Later, on page 185, the same author writes,
“It was determined that there exists a secret code in a number of the Dead Sea Scrolls that the Templars may have learned during their time in the Holy Land. Indeed, a noted expert on early Christianity, Dr. High Schonfield, demonstrated that if the name Baphomet was written in this code and then translated, the result would be the Greek word Sophia (meaning wisdom). From this, it can be concluded that when the Templars worshipped Baphomet, what they were really worshipping was the principle of wisdom and not some form of Satanism.”
In spite of their claims to worship wisdom rather than being Satanists, Albert Pike, the great Freemason of the Scottish Rite in the 1800’s was an avowed Luciferian. Furthermore, I once had to cast out this spirit of Baphomet from a woman whose high-ranking Masonic parents had dedicated her to Satan when she was five years old. Hence, their claim not to worship Baphomet or Satan is designed to deceive people into joining the order, where they soon become trapped by terrible oaths of loyalty to hidden masters serving Baphomet.
The street design in Washington D.C. placed the White House at the “mouth” of Baphomet, in order to turn the presidents into the spokesmen for the false god of Freemasonry.
Washington and Rome
When Washington D.C. was founded, the highest point was called Jenkins Point. In the 1790’s it was owned by Daniel Carroll—the brother of Catholic Bishop John Carroll. David Ovason tells us, “that in earlier times the hill had been called Rome” (The Secret Architecture of our National Capital, pp. 8). He continues, pp. 8, 9,
“Indeed, the story might easily be taken for the stuff of myth were it not supported by a long manuscript in the Maryland State Archives, at Annapolis. The deed, dated June 5, 1663, is in the name of Francis Pope, and sets out the basis for a survey of a strip of land called Rome, bounded by the inlet called Tiber.”
Symbolism is very important to secret societies, even to the Jesuits. This is why Francis Pope’s land (called “Rome”) was used to build our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. It was to assert the Roman Catholic Church’s claim upon America, which they still maintain on the grounds that Columbus claimed this new land for the Church. (By the way, Columbus never even saw the mainland in America. He discovered some islands in the Caribbean Sea.)
The layout for Washington D.C. was entrusted to a French Masonic engineer named Pierre-Charles L'Enfant. He got the job at the suggestion of Roman Catholic bishop John Carroll. L'Enfant laid out the main city streets in the shape of an upside down five-pointed star of Baphomet, the symbol of the goat. The White House was constructed at the goat's mouth. The two ears on the sides were marked by Mt. Vernon Place and Washington Circle. The horns were marked by Logan Circle and Dupont Circle.
In surveying and laying out the new city, L'Enfant numbered the city blocks. The 600 series runs from Q Street North through the Capitol grounds down to the mouth of James Creek. On page 228 of his book, Rulers of Evil, F. Tupper Saussy tells us,
“All the numbers between 600 and 900 are assigned to blocks within this swath—except for the number 666. That number is missing from the map. It must have been secretly affixed to the only unnumbered section of blocks in the 600 series. That section, we find, includes the Capitol grounds that once were called ‘Rome’.”
In other words, the Capitol was built on Lot #666 according to the original survey, but in order to hide this fact, they skipped the number entirely, but did not assign any number at all to the spot where the capitol stands. Hence, the entire plan for Washington D.C. was to suggest that it was the “throne of the beast,” which in this case was the throne of Baphomet, the god of Freemasonry.
The Templar-Masonic Connection
OnApril 8, 2004we poured out the water (taken from the Island of Peace) at the foot of the statue of General Winfield Scott. We spoke a warning to the beast system, admonishing it to repent and submit to the rule of the rightful Heir of all things—Jesus Christ, the King.
We knew, of course, that there would be no repentance because Rev. 16:11 says specifically, “they did not repent of their deeds.” Nonetheless, to fulfill all righteousness, it was necessary to do this, for it gave the beast system a full six months in which to repent.
Six months later, on Oct. 6, 2004, I poured out the wine at the same location. There were twelve of us who bore witness to that occasion. In essence, I stated to the beast in the name of Jesus that in view of the fact that he had not repented or submitted to Jesus Christ, He was declaring war against the throne of the beast.
The statue of General Winfield Scott is the only one that does not give any clues as to who this man was or why he was being honored with a statue. There is only one word on the statue itself—“Scott”—and there are no signs or monuments nearby to explain it. No title, rank, or even a first name was inscribed anywhere. The only clue we had was that across the street was the General Scott Hotel. This told us that he was a general.
We had to find him on the internet. We discovered that he was the longest-serving general in history (56 years) and he retired in 1861 near the beginning of the Civil War.
I believe that there was a reason why he disrespectfully appears only by the name “Scott.” I believe that it is not really a monument to the general, but in fact was meant to be an insult to the general by stripping him of his rank and identity. It was instead a monument to SCOTTish Rite Masonry, and for this reason the statue is located on the forehead of the Baphomet street design just a few blocks south of the Masonic Temple.
The pentagram itself is bisected by 16th street going straight north and south to Scott Circle from the White House. This street represents a candle in the middle of the pentagram (skull).
The top of the candle is Scott Circle. Directly above it as one continues north on 16th street there are 10 white statues of Venus in a row [pictured below]. These statues serve as the “wick” on the candle. A few blocks further north is the House of the Temple, the “Headquarters of the Supreme Council, 33rd degree, of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction, USA.” Built in 1911, they situated the temple to represent the fire or light on the wick of the candle.
The candle, with its wax body and fire, symbolizes the union of heaven and earth, spirit and matter. That is why Venus, the goddess of love, is represented by the wick on this candle. It manifests a sexual union between Venus (the earth) and Mars (the heavens).
As the “wick,” she is the point of contact that attracts the god of heaven to the earth. Masonry tries to unite heaven and earth by spiritual forces that are controlled by the flesh and by the fleshly will of man.
And so we saw that Scott Circle is really the most important of the points on the pentagram, although it is not one of the five points, but is actually the juncture between the two upper points. Care has been taken to downplay its importance, but the Lord exposed its importance to us.
The Grand Commander of Scottish Rite Masonry in the 1800’s, Albert Pike, calls Masonry the “successor of the Mysteries” in his book, Morals and Dogma (page 22). On page 23 he writes,
“Though Masonry is identical with the ancient Mysteries, it is so only in this qualified sense: that it presents but an imperfect image of their brilliancy, the ruins only of their grandeur, and a system that has experienced progressive alterations, the fruits of social events, political circumstances, and the ambitious imbecility of its improvers.”
In other words, Masonry tries hard to imitate the Egyptian Mystery religion, and they only regret that they fall short of its “brilliancy.” The Bible, of course, has much to say about the Egyptian religion, and by no stretch of the imagination does it promote it as a true religion.
The Tabernacles Conference in 2004
In the painting of Baphomet by Eliphas Levi, the caduceus is portrayed in the beast’s groin area. Here, then, is the connecting link between the god of Masonry and the medical-drug system. The two come together in the Shriners Hospitals, the primary philanthropic medical arm of the Masonic Order. Masons can always point to these when the Order itself comes under criticism, as if doing good compensates for their worship of Baphomet.
We were led to hold our 2004 Tabernacles conference at the Holiday Inn at the huge medical center in Houston, Texas. It happened that a friend of mine from Houston wanted to host the conference, and since his wife worked at the medical center, the conference was easily arranged. It was easy to see that we were led to meet there in order to pray-decree the overthrow of Baphomet’s fleshly dominance over the medical and pharmaceutical industry and replace it by the work of the Overcoming Flesh Angel.
During the Feast of Tabernacles of 2004 the Vioxx scandal hit the news. On September 30, 2004, the first day of the feast of Tabernacles, Pharmaceutical giant, Merck, was forced to recall its lucrative drug, Vioxx, in the midst of scandal. The next day our conference in Houston began, lasting from October 1-3, 2004. Two weeks later, British correspondent Rosie Murray-West wrote about the scandal in The Telegraph on October 15, 2004,
“The pharmaceutical industry routinely bribes doctors and ‘ghostwrites’ articles about drugs in major medical journals, MPs were told yesterday.
“Professor David Healy, of the University of Wales, told the Commons health select committee that as many as half the articles published in journals such as the British Medical Journal and The Lancet were written by members of the industry who had a vested interest in selling the drugs involved.
“Respected clinicians were then paid to have their names put at the top of the articles, he claimed, even though they had not seen the raw data on which they were based. . .
“He said he had been asked to put his name to an article, but had not done so. He then saw the same article bearing the name of Siegfried Kasper, from the Department of General Psychiatry at the University of Vienna. . .
“The pharmaceutical industry is reeling from the recent withdrawal of the rheumatoid arthritis drug, Vioxx, and widespread concerns over the anti-depressant Seroxat being prescribed for children.”
I believe that this exposure, which sent the pharmaceutical industry “reeling,” was a sign of divine judgment upon this aspect of Baphomet’s rule in Washington D.C. A few days after the Houston conference, on October 6, 2004, the seventh day of Tabernacles, we poured the bowl of wine at the foot of the statue of General Scott in Washington D.C.
The Fifth Sign in John
The fifth sign in the gospel of John correlates with the fifth bowls poured out on the fifth day of Tabernacles. These signs in John, of course, prophesy of the positive side of the feast of Tabernacles, that is, the bowls of water and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The fifth sign is found in John 6:16-21, where Jesus walked on the water to meet the disciples during the storm in the middle of the Sea of Galilee. It is a prophecy of the second coming of Christ, where Peter (representing the overcomers) goes out to meet Him. It also seems to set the timing of Christ’s coming on the fifth day of Tabernacles.
In 2004 my friend Kevin Peters asked if he could organize the Tabernacles conference at the medical center in Houston, Texas. I knew immediately that this was in accordance with the divine plan, for he was representing Peter in the gospel of John.
So we went to Houston in 2004 to decree judgment upon man’s attempts to heal disease with “gall” (poppies) and “wormwood” (opium, drugs) and to declare healing through the Balm of Gilead (Jer. 8:22; 9:15). For a longer study on the prophetic significance of wormwood and gall, see chapter 7 of Deuteronomy, the Second Law, Book 10.
