We Are Legion

Unifying the World

"For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many." Mark 5:8-9

Since I last wrote about "Occupy", it has become a global phenomenon.  Increasingly, there has been news of violent and perverse activities being associated with this movement.  There are reports of everything from molestation, public acts of indecency, assault, and destruction of property.

Those who reject Christ do not believe that He is soon
returning to judge the world, but that this time
represents a "new beginning" without consideration
of a Sovereign, Omnipotent God (Psalms 2:1-3).
In the past week, "Occupy D.C." is accused of knocking down an elderly man and pushing an elderly woman down a flight of stairs. "Occupy San Diego" defaced food carts - one splattered with blood & urine - when the vendors stopped handing out free food to the protestors.  Such acts of self-centered entitlement with a complete disregard for the well-being of others illustrates the mindset of anarchists.
anarchist: a person who advocates the abolition of government and a social system based on voluntary cooperation.
The anarchist doesn't want anyone telling him what to do.  He only desires to do what he "wants to" or "feels like" doing.  He therefore rejects any authority outside of his own will.  It matters not what type of authority or government it is; he despises anything that puts restraint on the old, carnal nature.

"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: but chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities."  II Peter 2:9-10

The backbone of this movement is what persons such as Aleistar Crowley have advocated: a society where everyone will "Do What Thou Wilt".  It is the perverse philosophy being promoted by the world's entertainment which glorifies rebellion and a rejection of any type of authority (like Jay-Z in his "Run This Town").  It is the corrupt indoctrination often passed off as 'education' where students are taught to set aside traditional beliefs in favor tolerance & diversity for the "collective good".

We are seeing the manifestation of fallen man at his best: full of self-love, without self-control, and motivated by self-interest.

"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." II Timothy 3:1-5

While the Occupy movement will claim that there is no real organization or authority behind these groups, there is certainly a hidden hand guiding these protests.  One evidence of this is something I have been noticing for weeks: the protestors' consistent use of the mask from the movie "V for Vendetta".

According to an article by CBS News, this mask is "...a stylized version of Guy Fawkes, an Englishman who tried to bomb the British Parliament on Nov. 5, 1605.

Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic who tried to assassinate King James I and have him replaced with a Catholic monarch.  He and his co-conspirators made an oath to pull off what is called the "Gunpowder Plot" and this oath was sealed with a Catholic mass performed by a Jesuit priest.  For those who do not understand the spiritual significance of this act, please read about the history of government subversion by the Jesuits in "The Occult & Secret Societies".

In the CBS news article, one Occupy protestor states that this mask is "...unifying the world under one symbol."  It sure seems to be, but what does the mask symbolize?

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Psalm 14:1

At its heart, this mask symbolizes that which is anti-God, more specifically anti-Christ.  Nothing makes this more apparent than the movie and the book upon which it is based.

"V for Vendetta" is a vile film which takes every opportunity to degrade Christianity and mock God.  The hero is a masked man named "V" who is attempting to incite an overthrow of a government described as "religious and conservative".  This authoritative and oppressive government - symbolized by an archiepiscopal cross - is shown to be the real extremists while contrasted against religions of peace such as Islam.  Perhaps the most horrid act of this government was its criminalization of homosexuality, which was one of the inspirations behind "V's" deciding to incite rebellion.

Know that there is no room for varying perspectives in "V's" view of society.  Although purporting to stand against tyranny, there is no mercy for those who do not agree with him.  If you are not on board with his ideology, then you are disposable and may very well be put to death.  How does "V" accomplish his goals?  Murder, torture, terrorism, group psychosis...and he convinces most of the working class to join him in the name of freedom (as they all don the same mask in their show of support).

Ultimately unable to complete his plan, "V" hands over his regime to a prostitute named "Evey" (i.e. Eve) who becomes the "savior" of the working class people after she is mentally "set free" by reading the journals of an arrested lesbian.  Her identification with the lesbian allows her to renew her commitment to "V's" cause for freedom from religious oppression.  "Who is V?", Evey is asked in the end?  "He is all of us" is her reply.

And it is not just the Occupy movement.  I cannot help but think of the product "Summer's Eve" (here we go with "Eve" again) which has recently launched its ad campaign "Hail to the V", championing a woman's body part as the "cradle of life" and "the center of civilization".  It even starts out with a woman lifting up her baby in offering to the moon, a tribute to the mythological figure of Lilith who refused to submit to Adam as his first wife (again, symbolizing a rejection of authority).  Even the Summer's Eve website has been rebranded to celebrate the "Power of the V".

Am I rich?  Not by any means.  Am I a defender of the current policies of the U.S. government?  Not at all.  Neither is it my intent to vilify all participants in this movement.  Yet, the events we are witnessing are not so shallow as a mere political uprising nor as altruistic as those seeking justice for the downtrodden.

What we are seeing is the growing emergence of an unholy spirit which will weave the world together to wonder after the beast (Revelations 17:8).   As the protestor stated, the whole world is being unified under this spirit; a spirit which honors perversion and hates God (as well as those who serve Him).  In fact, they will claim that the persecution of the saints is actually doing God a favor (John 16:2)...because they serve a different god.

The world is getting ready to receive its king, the King of Sodom, who will hate and make war with the saints of God.  They are "legion", but we are overcomers in Jesus Christ.  Do not get caught up in wars and the rumor of wars or other end time events of which Jesus has already forewarned us.  Don't get entangled with the affairs of this life.  Get ready as the time comes at hand.

  1. Great post! Yes it is important not to get caught up in this movement or those that are connected with it. The efforts of Occupy are futile and we must be reminded that God is our only fortress. He will not allow a government permitting wrong to defeat right...its only a matter of time. Psalms 94 breaks this down quite well.
