Magician Criss Angel Desecrates Human Body For Satanic Entertainment
By David J. Stewart | December 2013
Ecclesiastes 3:20 and 12:7, “All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. ... Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”
On a recent new episode of “BeLIEve” by Criss Angel, he records a creepy and disturbing attempt to raise a man from the dead. At the end of the program a short video clip of the man is shown while he was alive, along with a message which says “In loving memory of Robert Michaels (1958-2013).” The TV screen shot to the right is Mr. Michaels' literal corpse and Criss Angel playing God as a magician form of Dr. Frankenstein. Talk about creepy!
Say what he may, Mr. Angel is making tens-of-millions of dollars from his exploitation of the dead. During the program the man's chest is said to breath and liquid is seen running out of his dead mouth (likely formaldehyde). Of course, the man is a dead as can be and DIDN'T come back to life. Only God can raise the dead. Criss Angel has stated in the past that one of his goals is to discredit the miracles of Christ, showing that he can imitate walking on water, thus showing that Christ was not deity. Criss Angel has sold his soul to Satan!
It is sinful to desecrate the human body, whether by abortion, Naked Vegas painting businesses or by trying to raise the dead on national television as entertainment. Shame on Criss Angel for playing God. Mr. Angel attempts to justify his evil wickedness by saying that people are fascinated with death, and that his purpose was to try to prove what happens upon death. Is there an afterlife? In reality, all Criss Angel did was desecrate a dead man's body. According to Ecclesiastes 12:7, Robert Michaels' spirit is now in God's hands, having been sent to either Heaven or Hell. We learn this truth from the factual account in Luke 16:19-31 of Lazarus and the rich man who died. The rich man begged for water, for just ONE DROP, but was denied any relief for his torments in Hell fire. Lazarus was escorted by angels into Abraham's bosom.

Criss Angel has caused a big stir in the newsmedia...
Has Criss Angel gone too far in his attempt to raise the dead on Spike TV’s ‘Believe’?
By Robin Leach
Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013
Has Criss Angel gone too far? The “Believe” magician is ready for the firestorm of controversy certain to erupt as a result of tonight’s Spike TV episode titled “Raise the Dead.”
Criss’s incredible levitation of legendary NBA giant Shaquille O’Neal 60 feet above the ground lightens the telecast, but Criss knows that he’s certain to face criticism, outrage and scrutiny for his off-kilter activity with a day-old cadaver.
He admits that Nevada is one of the very few states where he could conduct this experiment with life in the hereafter for his new Spike series.
“I know this is going to ruffle many feathers,” Criss told me. “I’m ready to face it head on. I really wanted to know if one could make contact with a person right after their death.
“I know that religious people might get very upset with this, but I think everybody, if they were honest, would admit that they are curious about what happens when they die.” ...

The Bible tells us what will happen when we die in Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” The very moment that a person dies, their eternal fate is forever sealed. If someone dies in their sins without Christ, it is too late.
Speaking of too late... Tragically, and sadly, Paul Walker who recently died in a fiery car crash likely died in his sins without Christ, being a lifelong member of the demonic sex-cult of Mormonism. Mormons foolishly deny the deity of Christ and teach a works-based type of salvation. Mormonism is of the Devil. They practice Baptismal Regeneration (the heresy that water baptism is required to go to Heaven). Mormons are unsaved reprobates concerning the Christian faith! Mormons cannot go to Heaven, because they reject the Biblical gospel.
Mormons have another Jesus, another gospel and another spirit (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). Please read, ANOTHER GOSPEL by Pastor Harry Ironside to learn the truth. Run away from Mormonism, known as “The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Ladder Day Saints” as fast as you can!!! Mormonism was founded in 1830 by a sex-perverted 33rd degree Freemason named Joseph Smith. Smith was lynched by an angry mob and killed for his sex cult, which targets female children. Seven and eight year-old-girls are taught to plan and look forward to marrying a married man and join his 3 or 4 existing wives. Simple math tells us that if one man has 4 to 5 wives that there will be a surplus of Mormon young men, known as “The Lost Boys Of Mormonism.” This is why young Mormon males are sent out as missionaries and forbidden to date. Other males are forcefully kicked out of the cult and driven from the community. The only reason why this satanic cult isn't shut down is because Mormonism is virtually synonymous with Freemasonry, and both secret societies are engrossed in epidemic sexual immorality.

There have been numerous runaway best-sellers authored by people who claim to have DIED, gone to Heaven or Hell, and then came back to tell about their experiences. I've read weird stuff from Bill Wiese about giant demons with fangs from his alleged 21 minutes in Hell. I don't believe him. Perhaps he took some bad drugs, I don't know, but the Bible doesn't agree with the bizarre things that he claims to have seen. He made millions of dollars though on the sale of his book.
What Happens When We Die?
There is no such place known as Purgatory. It is a fabricated heresy of the Roman Catholic cult. To learn more about the lie of Purgatory, please listen to Purgatory And Other Errors (audio sermon). I believe that when we die, there is no break in our conscience. I believe many people don't realize they've died at first, until they see their own body separated from their soul and spirit. Scripturally, we know from 2nd Corinthians 5:8 that “to be absent from the body” is “to be PRESENT WITH THE LORD.” The unsaved rich man woke up in Hell, burning in fire and torments.
When a genuinely born-again Christian dies physically, they go to be with THE LORD. 2nd Corinthians 5:8, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” Physical death (or the first death) is the separation of our soul and spirit from our body. The second death is separation of our body, soul and spirit from God forever. Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Please note that the second death is NOT spiritual death. All humanity is born spiritually DEAD in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2:1-2), which is why we all must be born anew by the Spirit of God to enter into the Kingdom of God (John 3:5-7; Romans 8:9). 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” No one can go to Heaven when they die unless they have been born-again by faith in the gospel, that is, by faith in the good news of Christ's death, burial and resurrection from the dead three days later (1sr Corinthians 15:1-4). This is the ONLY way to be saved from the coming judgment in the Lake of Fire for our sins (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:11-15).
I was listening to a fascinating sermon on the radio today. I didn't get the preacher's name, but he said that man's blood is composed partly of salt. Salt is mined from the dust of the earth. Whereas evolutionists errantly claim that man evolved from ocean life, the Bible teaches that God formed man from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7). The ground is where the salt is. So man had to come from the dust of the earth, just as the Bible teaches in Genesis 2:7 and Ecclesiastes 3:20, 12:7 (our text verses). The salt in the ocean comes from rocks on land. This is further proof that evolution is a bogus big lie and that God is indeed the Creator of mankind, the earth and the universe!!! Man didn't come from the ocean!
We all have an appointed time to die (Hebrews 9:27). When it's our time to go, nothing can stop it. And if it's not our time, it's not our time. Some healthy people have suddenly dropped dead without explanation. Yet others have suffered an iron shaft plunged through their skull in a horrific accident, recovering completely. Thankfully, God has removed the fear of death for those who have placed their sincere trust in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Death has no power over the Christian; but for the unsaved it is the worst day of their existence (and the beginning of a never-ending eternity in the Lake of Fire, the second death). I am so glad and thankful that I got saved at an early age. I rejoice that I am a born-again Christian. I am so glad that I am saved and KNOW that I am going to Heaven. I know because my salvation has nothing to do with me; but rather, it is through God's righteousness by faith in Christ that my sins have been forgiven (Philippians 3:9).
If Our Earthly Tabernacle (Human Body) Be Dissolved
In the following wonderful Scripture passage, the word “tabernacle” in 2nd Corinthians 5:1 is the Greek word skenos and means “a hut or temporary residence, that is, (figuratively) the human body.” Thus, our physical body is the temporary abiding place (abode, residence or home) of our soul and spirit. The word “tabernacle” simply means “a tent.” A tent is not intended as a permanent residence, but temporary. The Bible plainly teaches that when our earthly body (tabernacle) is dissolved (death), that a new house made without hands awaits us in heavenly places. Amen!
2nd Corinthians 5:1, “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven...”
When we die and depart from our earthly body, we have a house in Heaven. Does this mean in the future at the Rapture, or sooner if we die before the Rapture? There is much controversy concerning this subject. Many good theologians believe that the believer's body sleeps in the grave after death, while their soul and spirit live in Heaven, waiting for the Rapture (the first resurrection, Revelation 20:6). The Lord arose BODILY from the grave (seen by over 500 brethren, 1st Corinthians 15:6) and ascended BODILY into Heaven (Acts 1:9-11). Jesus sits BODILY upon the throne, on the Father's right-hand (Colossians 3:1). It would seem strange to me that the Lord has a physical body in Heaven, but believers in Heaven do not. Yet, the Bible teaches that we are reunited with our new glorified body at the Rapture. Also, we know that the angels have physical bodies and do eat. When the angels visited Lot, they enjoyed a feast (Genesis 19:3). I would not argue the point.
Since the Bible refers to our earthly body as a “tabernacle,” it is clear to me that our “house” in Heaven will be a new body. We know for certain that we will have a new glorified body fashioned like unto Christ's at the Rapture. Whether nor not departed saints are provided some type of temporary body in Heaven is a much debated subject. The next great prophetic event on God's calendar is the blessed Rapture of the saints from the earth. 1st Corinthians 15:52, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. Philippians 3:20-21, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
Here on earth, our human body (as believers) is the temple of God's Holy Spirit. 1st Corinthians 6:19, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” Isn't that beautiful. God wanted to be so close to us that He chose to live within our very body. I love that. Thank you Lord Jesus, my God and Savior!
Also, the rich man in Hell in Luke 16:19-31 had a body to experience torment. He was incredibly thirsty and begged Abraham for a single drop of water. A spirit cannot thirst for water; but rather, a literal body. It would only seem logical that if the rich man in Hell (Hades) had a body that so also did Abraham and Lazarus. Of course, these could not have been earthly bodies, but special bodies. I would not be dogmatic on this issue of having a physical body in the afterlife. Where the Bible is silent I think it is best to remain silent. If pressed for an answer, I would say that our soul and spirit remain in Heaven WITHOUT a body until the Rapture, as this appears to be the plain teaching of the Scriptures...
1st Corinthians 15:35 and 51, “But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? ... Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Hell Is A Literal Place
Few people these days believe in a literal place called “hell” that burns with fire and brimstone as the Bible teaches. As you've just read, the Bible describes the “second death” as burning with “fire and brimstone.” Seventh Day Adventism (SDA) totally denies the reality of Hell, even calling it a cruel hoax and demonizing fundamental Gospel preachers who still preach the inspired Word of God faithfully. I say this kindly, with love, a broken heart and with no desire to offend anyone. I am simply standing for God, contending for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). If the shoe fits, wear it. 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.”
In “THE GREAT HOPE” by Ellen G. White, she errantly and foolishly states on page 28:
“The heresy of Eternal Torment
Untold evil has come from the heresy of eternal torment. It takes the religion of the Bible, so full of love and goodness, darkens it by superstition and clothes it with terror. Satan has painted the character of God in false colors, making people fear, dread, and even hate our merciful Creator. The repulsive views of God that have spread over the world from the teachings of the pulpit have made millions of people skeptics and unbelievers.
Eternal torment is one of the false doctrines, the wine of abomination (revelation 14:8, 17:2), which Babylon makes all nations drink. Ministers of Christ accepted this heresy from Rome, just as they received the false sabbath...”

Is hell a superstition? Ellen G. White appeals to the lack of conviction over sin in most people's lives, saying that Satan uses the teaching of eternal torment to distort God's true character of love, love, love. However, only a woefully ignorant fool, devoid of the holy Scriptures would dare claim that the teaching of eternal damnation for Christ-rejecting sinners is a distortion of God's character. Quite the contrary, it it 100% in line and agreement with God's character. Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
Did you read that? Hebrews 10:31 warns that it is A FEARFUL THING to fall into the hands of the Living God. In John 3:36 John the Baptist said, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Does God's wrath abide on you? If there is no hell-fire, no torment and no eternal misery, then what would there be to fear from God's judgment? Clearly, hell involves torment, and it is forever and ever and ever! ...
Revelation14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
Clearly, SDA's are false prophets who deny the plain teaching in the Bible of eternal torment of the unsaved. There is NO REST for the wicked!!! We are warned in 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” The Bible plainly teaches that God will punish all Christ-rejecters who die in their sins with flaming fire in the Lake of Fire. There is no teaching in the Bible of temporal punishment of annihilation as Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists errantly teach.
Psalms 9:17 warns, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” The word “hell” here is the Hebrew sheol, meaning “the grave, that is, the realm of the dead.” But the meaning of sheol has a wide application, not limited to the physical grave alone; but rather, it simply referred to the place where the dead go, which can imply Heaven or Hell, as well as the earth. Psalms 9:17 clearly implies that the wicked don't go to the same place (sheol) as the righteous, for what sense would the Bible make if both the wicked and the righteous go to the same place in eternity? Clearly, the wicked go to a place of suffering, whereas the righteous do not. Psalms 9:17 pronounces a curse upon the wicked and all the nations (not just some of them) that forget God (which certainly includes America today).
SDA is a satanic cult that denies a literal place that burns with fire, where the unsaved who die in their sins (John 8:24) are tormented forever and ever (Revelation 14:11).
- Mark 9:44, “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
- Mark 9:46, “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
- Mark 9:48, “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
- Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”
- Matthew 25:46, “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”
There are serious issues and theological flaws with the Seventh Day Adventist denial of a literal Hell where the wicked are tormented for their sins for ever and ever. If the wicked are all annihilated - unconscious of fire, torment or punishment for their sins and crimes against God and humanity - then how can there be justice? Adolf Hitler murdered millions of innocent Jews. George W. Bush murdered millions of innocent Iraqis. Pol Pot murdered millions of innocent Cambodians. Stalin murdered millions of innocent Russians. Will these evil men merely be denied eternal life and sent back to an unconscious state of the dead? Will they suffer the same fate as the dear old sweet Catholic Mother Teresa who spent her life helping others, yet she died in her sins without Christ, having placed her trust in the Roman Catholic religion instead of the blood of Jesus Christ? I think not.
Will the man who dies in his sins, having committed 5,000 sins in his lifetime suffer the same eternal penalty as the man who committed 50,000,000 sins? The Bible gives us the plain answer in Revelation 20:12-13, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.” As you have just learned, God plainly warns that the DEAD (the unsaved) will be judged from the books according to THEIR WORKS. It would make absolutely no sense if the SDA's are correct that the dead will all be sent back into an unconscious state as punishment.
So what would be the benefit or purpose of holding wicked men and women accountable for THEIR WORKS? If Adolf Hitler and the 15-year-old boy who die in the sin of unbelief both suffer the same eternal fate, then God would be unjust and Hitler got away with all his heinous evils. Scripturally, men like Hitler will be tormented more for each sin committed. If a person goes to Hell, then they MUST pay for their own sins, each and every one of them without exception. Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”
Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” What “fear” would there be if evil men and women knew that their worst fate will be annihilation, a second death that brings total unconsciousness? There would be no fear. But read carefully what the Lord said in Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” SDA's are a demonic cult, who will discover the second they enter into eternity how wrong they are concerning eternal punishment. The Bible teaches a literal place called Hell. I say this kindly, with love, a broken heart and with no desire to offend anyone. I am simply standing for God, contending for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3).
There are three different Greek words for our English word “hell” (namely, Hades, Gehenna and Tartarus). Tartarus is a special place reserved for fallen angels, i.e., demons. Hades is a temporal place, compartmentalized between Paradise and Torment as evidenced in Luke 16:19-31. In the Old Testament the righteous went to Paradise (also known as “Abraham's Bosom”). The wicked went to the place of Torment, as did the rich unsaved man in Luke 16:19-31. Lazarus was poor, but righteous, and he was escorted by angels to Abraham's Bosom. When Jesus rose from the dead, He brought the souls in Paradise to Heaven.
I am not argumentative or dogmatic on this teaching of Paradise and Torment (that is, Hades), because many respected Bible scholars (like Dr. John R. Rice) disagree and rather, teach that all saints in the Old Testament went directly to Heaven, as they do today. Such scholars deny the existence of a temporal place called Paradise or Torment. I would not argue the point; however, I am firmly convinced that the former teaching is Biblical.
The primary reason why I believe that Hades was compartmentalized (besides the factual account of Luke 16:19-31) is the third Greek meaning of “hell,” which is Gehenna. “Gehenna” is the Lake of Fire. The Bible teaches in Revelation 20:14-15 that death and hell (Hades) were cast into the Lake of Fire (Gehenna). Revelation 20:14, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” What is the second death? It is Gehenna!!! “Gehenna” refers to the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, a place in the Old Testament where the city's garbage was burdened, dead bodies were cremated and all manner of filth was dumped...
The Book of Isaiah does not mention Gehenna by name, but the "burning place" 30:33 in which the Assyrian army is to be destroyed, may be read "Topheth", and the final verse of Isaiah which concerns the corpses of the same or a similar battle, Isaiah 66:24, "where their worm does not die" is cited by Jesus in reference to Gehenna in Mark 9:44, 9:46, and 9:48.
SOURCE: Gehenna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bible makes a distinct contrast between these three Greek words for “hell.” If SDA's are correct that there is no literal place of torment and burning flames of actual fire, then what would be the purpose of distinguishing between Hades and Gehenna? For an in-depth explanation of hell, please read the book, A BIBLICAL EXAMINATION OF HELL (.pdf file) by Dr. Max D. Younce.
SDA's Teach The Unbiblical Heresy of “Soul Sleep”
It is our body that sleeps, not our soul and spirit. SDA's refute the Biblical teaching of an immortal soul, whether in Heaven or Hell. According to SDA's, the soul ceases to be conscious upon the physical death of the human body, and will one day be resurrected, either to everlasting life or to be forever put back to rest unconscious. A group of Sadducees came to question the Lord, trying to stump Him. They didn't believe in the resurrection of the human body by God. They presented a hypothetical case to Jesus, concerning a woman whose husband had died. The man had six brothers. Under Mosaic law, when a man died without having any children to his name, the duty fell upon that man's brother to marry the widow and bear children for the deceased brother.
In this hypothetical situation, the Sadducees said that each brother married the wife, and then died, leaving the next brother to take her as a wife to fulfil Jewish law concerning carrying on a brother's seed. So all seven brothers had been married at different times to this same woman over her lifetime. Then the Sadducees asked the $64,000 question to Jesus... in the resurrection, whose wife amongst the seven brothers shall this woman be? Jesus answered their question.
Matthew 22:29-33, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.”
I have shared this passage of Scripture with you to plainly evidence from the holy Bible that “soul sleep” is unbiblical. The SDA heresy that the human soul is not immortal (alive forever) goes totally contrary to the plain teachings of the Scriptures. Jesus clearly taught that God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who are all alive presently in Heaven the Lord said. Jesus plainly said, “God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” SDA's foolishly teach that believers are asleep, unconscious in the grave, awaiting the resurrection. Jesus said that God is the God of the LIVING!!!
The apostle Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 5:8, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”
One of the plainest Scriptures refuting the heresy of soul sleep is 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” God will bring the saints who have previously died and gone to Heaven WITH HIM at the Rapture. Their bodies will be raised up and reunited with their spirit and soul. We must keep in mind that the spirit world is INVISIBLE to the human senses, but in the spirit world they will be very visible. God allowed Elijah to see the horses and fire in 2nd Kings 2:11, and then he was taken into Heaven.
The Antichrist Will Deceive With Signs And Lying Wonders
Criss Angel is a servant of the New World Order. This is the forming Beast system of the coming Antichrist. Criss Angel admits that ILLUSION is a key component of his visual deceptions, mind-boggling stunts and apparent magic. The Bible foretells that in the end times the Antichrist will perform many signs and LYING wonders, deceiving the world...
2nd Thessalonians 2:8-12, “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Unsaved people are easily deceived because they do not have the Spirit of Christ. John 3:20 teaches that love of sin prevents them from coming to the light of the gospel to be saved. The Illuminati (all elite secret society members) love to put occult symbols in plain site, mocking the ignorance and gullibility of the masses of society. It makes them feel empowered and gives them a sense of superiority over their fellow dumbed-down mankind. Case in point, look at any U.S. one dollar bill, which is saturated with occult symbols, including The Great Pyramid and the All Seeing Eye (official symbols of the New World Order).
In all his new episodes, Criss Angel's left eye is completely hidden behind his black hair, showing only one eye. This is extremely popular in the music, acting and entertainment industry. The All Seeing Eye is ultimately representative of the power of Satan. The All Seeing Eye is brilliant in design. Think about it. If I peep through a hole in your fence, I can see everything that you do, but you can only see my eye. Likewise, the Illuminati monitor all that we do. Increasingly the New World Order (world government) is being established by taking complete control over all information in people's lives. The controlling elite are cleverly and carefully hidden from public scrutiny.
Spiritually, the All Seeing Eye symbolizes satanic deception. Satan knows everything about us, but we only have a limited knowledge at best, trying to fit the puzzle pieces together. Remember, Satan is the father of all liars and murderers (John 8:44). The All Seeing Eye means that Satan is the god of this world, and he is relentlessly working to destroy men's lives.
Criss Angel is preparing the way for the coming man of sin, the Antichrist!
America Has Forgotten God
Criss Angel is just another step in the desecration of the human body in the United States. The show Naked Vegas is deliberately making public nudity commonplace. This is all intended to weaken the moral conscious and standards of Americans, so they'll embrace the homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage and adoption. It's all evil, sickening and awful!!! I recently heard on the news that sexual content has more than DOUBLED on television since 1998. Now that analog television is gone, everyone either has digital TV or nothing.
USA Today reported this week that Americans don't trust each other anymore. This is the result of the newsmedia's infatuation with crime, crime and more crime committed by Americans. Of course no one trusts their neighbour anymore when you sit around watching all that garbage on TV. It's horrifying what crimes are happening across America, but hearing the newsmedia promote it over and over and over is making people cold. Nancy Grace has become very wealthy by spreading manure all over the place. I wonder if she trusts her own shadow? Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” It's all a domino effect. More filth on TV inspires more filth in public. As the sinful public watches the filth on TV and the ratings go higher, the networks produce even more filth, always pushing moral limits to make more money. Adulterous Hollywood executives produce adulterous movies that inspire adulterous people.
We have forsaken God as a nation!!! We kicked God out, throwing out the Bible and prayer from our nation's classrooms in 1963, sealing our doom. It's not that hard to figure out! Our country is the sum total of each individual citizen. Nation's either wax better or worse, one person at a time. Hence, our duty as believers is to preach the gospel and try to win one person at a time to the Lord. The only hope for America is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Revolution is not the answer. Education is not the answer. Reformation is not the answer. Religion is not the answer. Rehabilitation is not the answer. Turning over a new leaf is not the answer.
We need REGENERATION!!! We need the old time religion, that is, the preaching of the gospel, which is Biblical Christianity! Until a man is born anew by faith in Jesus Christ, he is a slave to his own lusts and carnal nature. Without the new nature (2nd Corinthians 5:17), which is Christ's Spirit, no one can please God. Behavior modification is not going to work. That's society's answer these days. But Jesus said, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:5-7). If you're concerned about dying and where you'll spend eternity, then I plead with you to receive the gospel (Christ's death, burial and resurrection from the dead) as full-payment for your sins.
Gospel + Faith = Salvation
“No Christian will ever have his name blotted out of the Lamb’s book of life, for all such have eternal life—which is unforfeitable and everlasting.” — Pastor Harry A. Ironside
