The third annual “Catharsis on the Mall” – a scaled-down version of the annual, pagan Burning Man Festival – cast its spell in Washington, D.C., from November 10 through 12. It was designed to be a political protest and spiritual vigil. But it was the spirit of the biblically-prophesied, one-world Antichrist government and one-world false religion that will exist during the Tribulation.
The blasphemous event took place in our nation’s capital this past weekend that claimed to be a “vigil for healing.” However, it was anything but. It actually had two agendas: One is the destruction of our nation. The other is the worst one of all. It is an in-your-face rebellion against God.
For those who may not know what the Burning Man Festival is about, the following was spoken by Pastor Jack Hibbs as he was referring to the downfall of nations in his study of Isaiah chapter 3 (which he covers in 3 one-hour parts on his YouTube channel, “Real Life Jack Hibbs”), comparing what happened then to what is happening now in our nation (and the world). The same pattern has always occurred throughout history.
“A speaker at a Dallas theological conference pointed out a wave that is sweeping the world among young people. One of the events is called Burning Man. Burning Man in Nevada sold out faster than any event in human history—100,000 tickets in less than one second. It’s a very pagan event. All these people show up in the desert and create a city. They erect a 100-foot high man. The event is the 60’s hippie movement on steroids: lots of drugs, nakedness, sex and weirdness. The mantra of these events is “do whatever you want to do.” (That is also the mantra of the Satanists). At the end everyone gathers around and chants and burns this man effigy. Sister events happen in Europe as well.” — Jack Hibbs, “Howz it Goin?’” study of Isaiah chapter 3.
These liberal-left “progressives” need to keep their heathen, New-Age shenanigans confined to the burning-hot desert. There, they get a taste, albeit an infinitesimally small one, of where their deserted souls are pulling them. However, that place will be much hotter, unless they turn to the True God, who came to Earth in the flesh to die for the sins of those who put their faith in Him.
Their demon-gods festival occurred in a place that is already a veritable swamp of like-minded minions. That would be the Marxist, Godless politicians who are angrily gnashing their teeth in their quest, which is to wrest back power in order to finish tearing down the republic under God upon which this nation was built. It is the only nation standing in the way of their desired global government.
This foreign-god fiasco featured a 70-foot-long metal dragon on wheels that doubled as a stage. At the conclusion of all the mayhem, they set a wooden “temple” aflame. The events were described like so: “where ‘cascading into compassion’ and ‘Consciousness Hacking’ meet up.”
Consciousness Hacking, according to the site tekgnostics, is “a series of techniques (yogas) and an array of technologies (tantras) designed to promote mindfulness, develop clarity and invigorate internal energy or life force (chi or prana).”
The Gnostic cult believes in self-redemption. As for ‘cascading into compassion,’ the compassion of these liberal-left lost ones only extends to those of their persuasion, and most certainly not to Christians. And the only energy or life force their consciousness hacking summons up is demonic.
I didn’t watch any of the festivities, but the plans were to hold a protest march, which was to begin at the break of dawn on Sunday, November 12, in which this massive metal dragon, known as Abraxas (also a staple at the Burning Man Festival), would be rolled through the streets around the Capitol building. Carl Jung transcribed a Gnostic treatise in 1916, which called Abraxas the “supreme power of being, transcending both God and the Devil, uniting all opposites into one.”
The theme of this demon-stration was women’s-lib based. This political movement bears no resemblance to the women’s suffrage movement of another century. This modern women’s lib movement, which gained popularity in the 1960s, has become more and more brazen through the years. It is quite “nasty,” to use their own word from their January 2017 women’s march. Basically, they’d like to throw all the men that they’re unable to make “effeminate” into a “burning man” fire, thus allowing them to rule the world themselves.
Originally, there was to be a 47-foot tall statue of a naked woman called R-Evolution at this sinful event, but permission was withdrawn. The reason given was that the statue is too tall and would overshadow the Washington Monument, also possibly damage the turf. Organizer, Natalie White, claims that this is a violation of their First Amendment rights. How ironic is that? The organizers are considering legal action.
In the place of the R-Evolution statue, they erected scaffolding for a virtual image of a nude woman called “Our Evolution,” which was half as tall and represented the women organizers with their actual nude bodies morphed into this one virtual image. Supposedly, this thing will be allowed to stand for four months.
The libbers now plan to hold a daily vigil for female empowerment outside the White House through February.
Speaking of the Washington Monument, a sculpture of the Hindu Shiva god, The Destroyer, in its dancing form called Lord Nataraja, faced the monument. I’ll discuss what Shiva is and what it represents shortly, but first I’d like to discuss one of the last steps in the historical downfall of nations. I will save the ten steps for the conclusion.
The following are further notes I typed up from Pastor Jack Hibbs’ study of Isaiah chapter 3:
Isaiah’s calling as a prophet was primarily to the nation of Judah and to the city of Jerusalem. He urged the people to repent from their sins and return to God. He also foretold the coming of the Messiah and the salvation of the Lord, also the End of Days events.
They (Judah) had turned away from God and turned to foreign gods. Now the commander of the Assyrian forces was getting ready to attack. God allowed this because they had ignored His warnings to turn back to Him.
Deuteronomy 4:27-30 “And the Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord will drive you. And there you will serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell. But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul, when you are in distress and all these things come upon you in the latter days…”
Isaiah 3:9 “The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.”
Mankind brings evil upon his own self. God doesn’t bring the evil upon man. Mankind creates the vacuum by backing away from God, from which the evil comes in. (In this chapter of Isaiah, we see sexual immorality and men who were too weak to rule.)
Isaiah 3:12 “As for My people, children [childish leaders] are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.”
The women God is speaking of here, who will rule over them, are not good women; they are harsh, hard women (jezebel types: shameless, morally unrestrained.)
The worst idea that these feminists, or women’s libbers, or whatever, got into their heads is, ‘We’re equal to a man!’ That actually took women a step down. God made the woman a special possession for a man to cherish. But feminists ruined all that.
One of the signs of a dying culture (you can research this and see it’s true) is that women begin to be brazen and aggressive like men. And sexual immorality is the final straw in every civilization before it falls. It dies from the inside. Every single civilization has seen its demise when it becomes like this.
Proverbs 5:3-6 “For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil. But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.For she cares nothing about the path to life. She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it.”
Isaiah 3:18 “In that day the Lord will take away the finery of the anklets, the headbands, and the crescents…” (Crescent moons—ancient Babylonian worship of the moon. They had 360 gods, one for every day on the 360-day calendar. Islam’s Mohammad adopted the Babylonian god symbol that predated Islam by thousands of years. (Every false religion/false god has its roots in ancient Babylon.)
Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
If anyone thinks America is too big to fail, then they’ve never read history. They’ve never read the Bible. God is patient. He’s been good to America, and America has not been good to Him. Today we have people going against our Constitution, revising real history into lies that suit their agenda.
And, of course, look what the UN and the Arabs are trying to do to Jewish history. God sees and hears all.
In Nimrod’s day (in Genesis), everyone spoke one language (Hebrew). There are translations of the Bible that say “Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord.” But the original Hebrew says that Nimrod was a mighty hunter “at” or “upon” the Lord. Nimrod’s goal in building the tower was in thinking he could ascend into the heavens and deal with God. What was he thinking? Did he think he could destroy God and take His place?
This spirit that was in Nimrod is one of a godless culture, and this spirit is literally sweeping Europe, which believes that politics will deliver them. One of their leaders said we don’t care if it’s a demon or an angel as long as somebody leads us.
[The quote he referred to has been attributed to socialist Paul Henri-Spaak, former Prime Minister of Belgium and first chairman of the General Assembly of the United Nations, who is also considered to be one of the founding fathers of the European Union. Here is the quote:
“We do not want another committee. We have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass in which we are sinking. Send us such a man and, be he God or the devil, we will receive him.”]
Now back to Jack:
Their economy is falling apart. They’ve even tried to call the EU the USE, United States of Europe, as if this would make people think that if the US can do it, they can too. But the difference is that the US constitution has God written all over it. The EU, in a meeting, actually said there would be no God in their constitution. And so it is. There is no God in their constitution. — Jack Hibbs, “Howz it Goin?’” study of Isaiah chapter 3.
Now let’s get into what Shiva is all about. The Hindu god, Shiva The Destroyer, in its dancing form (Lord Nataraja) looked upon the Washington Monument. The significance of this sculpture is this:
According to Hindu belief, Shiva’s role is to destroy the universe in order to re-create it. Hindus believe his powers of destruction and recreation are used even now to destroy the illusions and imperfections of this world, paving the way for beneficial change. They believe this destruction is not arbitrary, but constructive.
Shiva is therefore seen as the source of both good and evil and is regarded as the one who combines many “contradictory” elements. Shiva is known to have untamed passion, which leads him to extremes in behavior. — BBC, Religions: Shiva.
The Shiva Dancing Destroyer statue can also be seen at the entrance to the controversial CERN Hadron Collider location. Scientists hope that this collider will unlock the secrets of how the universe began and what it’s made of, which they believe is mostly made up of “dark matter.” They could save themselves all the trouble by looking in the Bible.
The Shiva statue at this event represented the Marxist, globalist agenda of tearing down the world and rebuilding it into their Godless New World Order.
The liberal-left makers of mayhem have allowed themselves to become—and stay—deceived by the father of lies. They’d rather worship false gods. This also includes the globalists’ favorite god, the Mother Earth Gaia (nature) goddess. They worship created things rather than the Creator.
God’s Word has a lot to say about all this and its consequences in Romans 1:18-32:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
“Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves [within their bodies] the penalty of their error which was due.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Jesus said in Luke 17 that, when He returns, the world will be just like it was in the days of Noah and Lot.
When Jesus removes His own (who are not destined for wrath, according to 1 Thess.5:9), catching them away in what we refer to as the rapture (1 Thess.4:16-17), these humanist heathen will “get what they ask for” during the seven-year Tribulation. Woe to the world when that happens, for it will be the Antichrist who will rule the left behind. All the while, God’s 21 Revelation judgments will rain down upon those who rejected Christ, the only one who could save their eternal souls.
I will conclude with the ten stages of a nation’s decline, which have always followed the same pattern in history. This is from an article titled, “Decline of a Nation:”
Each of the great civilizations in the world passed through a series of stages from their birth to their decline to their death. Historians have listed these in ten stages.
The first stage moves from bondage to spiritual faith. The second stage moves from spiritual faith to great courage. The third stage moves from great courage to liberty. The fourth stage moves from liberty to abundance. The fifth stage moves from abundance to selfishness. The sixth stage moves from selfishness to complacency. The seventh stage moves from complacency to apathy. The eighth stage moves from apathy to moral decay. The ninth stage moves from moral decay to dependence. And the tenth and last stage moves from dependence to bondage.
These are the ten stages through which the great civilizations have gone. Notice the progression from bondage to liberty back to bondage. The first generation throws off the shackles of bondage only to have a later generation, through apathy and indifference, allow itself to once again be enslaved. (Marxism and Socialism lead to Communism, which enslaves everyone.)
This is the direction this and every other country is headed. The book of Judges shows that the nation of Israel passed through these same stages. And this country will do the same unless revival and reformation breaks out and reverses the inexorable decline of this nation. — Kerby Anderson, “Decline of a Nation,” 1991 Probe Ministries.
From Gracethrufaith, “Is the Great Revival Biblical?” by the late Jack Kelley: On the contrary, it (the Bible) teaches that before the end comes there will be a great falling away from the truth (2 Thess.2:3) and the true Church will become weak and have little strength (Rev.3:8) Sadly, apostasy in the Church is the real sign of the End Times, not revival.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
“For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with diverse lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
