HOMO NEPHILUS:
Explaining Extraterrestrials, Noah’s Flood, Pseudo-Humans,
Pseudoscience, Nephilim, and Space Alien DNA
by Sarah Leslie
“[God] hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and
hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation (Acts 17:26).”

In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that
are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him
(Col. 1:14-16).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
People often ask why we spend so much time in the discussion of bizarre topics, like UFOs and
hybrid giants. They wonder why prophecy studies give any time at all to weird subjects like
mystery lights in the sky, aerial trumpets and explosions, “alien implants” and “the nephilim.”
They wonder why some opt for prophetic sensationalism, rather than focusing on the Gospel,
or maturing the saints with the Word of God through traditional Bible study.2
~ Gary Stearman, "The Dark Side of Bible Prophecy"

Many evangelicals now believe that God sent Noah’s Flood to stop the Nephilim
corruption of human DNA. From the plain truth of Scripture it is very evident that
the “wickedness of man” was very great on the face of the earth before the Flood:
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination
of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually... The LORD said, "I will blot out man
whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to
birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them (Genesis 6:5, 7).” [bold added]

Noah’s Flood was God’s judgment for the sinful unrighteous behavior of mankind.
This is taught in both the Old and New Testaments (i.e., Ezek. 14:20, Heb. 11:7).
The Lord Jesus Christ warned us explicitly that before His Second Coming sin
would be so extant, and people so preoccupied with daily life, that His return
would be like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:36-44) and catch people unawares
(see also 1 Thess. 5:2-4).
But evangelical Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) teachers have been
teaching that God judged Noah’s world because human DNA had gotten
corrupted. They also teach that this corrupted DNA is why God will need to judge
the world again. This concept is problematic at many levels, both biblically and
scientifically. It ignores the problem of sin that leads to judgment (i.e., Heb. 10:2627; 1 Pet. 4:17-18; 2 Pet. 2; Rev. 17:1; 20:4).

“But the heavens and the earth, which are now,
by the same Word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment
and perdition of ungodly men (2 Peter 3:7).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm leaders teach that corrupted human DNA
continued AFTER the Flood. No matter what one believes happened with the
“sons of God” and “daughters of men” (Genesis 6) before the Flood—and there
are many varying theological opinions—this teaching is aberrant. Various versions
of the post-Flood story even claim that fallen angels and/or “Watchers” are
extraterrestrial beings (i.e., space aliens) who have mated with human women.
Their supposed offspring are said to have created branches of the human race
whose DNA is tainted with alien and/or fallen angel blood. Some even talk about
“another race of beings;”3 i.e., not human. This subhuman race is said to become
an “antichrist” race that will give rise to the “beast” of Revelation. 4
Many are now teaching that pre-Flood Nephilim weren’t really destroyed, that
they must have somehow left planet earth or become disembodied spirits, and
that somehow they managed to come back to continue corrupting mankind’s
bloodline after Noah's Flood. How these Nephilim have left and returned has
been a subject of great speculation that reads like science fiction—everything
from UFOs to hyper-dimensional physics has been suggested.5 The ramifications
of these false teachings are staggering—they profoundly alter not only the
entirety of Scripture, but especially the message of Redemption found in the
Gospel of Jesus Christ and His shed blood on the Cross for our sins. The Prophecy
in the News magazine cover illustration on the cover of this booklet, with the
quote by Gary Stearman beneath, is indicative of the occult nature of the
postmodern prophecy teachings. This book segment is an in-depth analysis of just
one controversial aspect of this emerging prophecy paradigm.

Before and After Noah’s Flood: Science and Scripture
Before examining the new paradigm prophecy teachings,6 we want to first point
out that many of the heresies surrounding Noah’s Flood have already been
refuted in previous articles posted on Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis (AIG)
website. Devoted to both literal biblical creationism and historical accuracy, and
also to scientific scholarly research, this website contains much helpful
apologetics information for believers who are searching for truth. Many of these
articles refute pseudoscience, that is “science falsely so-called” (1 Tim. 6:20),
including Darwinism and Social Darwinism. 7

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
An excellent article that reviews the many biblical views about the ancient
Nephilim can be found on the Answers in Genesis website.8 The author of this
article warns that “there is a popular unbiblical view that the Nephilim are space
aliens. Of course, most creationists rightly reject this particular view for multiple
reasons...” The author goes on to recount the inherent problems for biblical
creationists with a post-Flood “fallen angels” view of the Nephilim.

Yes! There were giants! Homo Sapiens!
Another article on the AIG website answers many questions about “Giants in the
Old Testament.”9 This fascinating in-depth article delves into the historical
lineages of the various giants mentioned in the Bible, and cites the many passages
of Scripture that actually recount their human family tree. Interestingly, the Bible
refers to them as “men” – and there is not one instance where the Bible (as
opposed to extra-biblical sources) warns us that giants are related to space aliens
who corrupted human DNA.10 In fact, there is a very thorough scientific and
medical article posted at Answers in Genesis that explains how human male and
female DNA works, particularly concerning aberrations in Noah’s post-Flood
family tree. This article explains the mitochondrial genes that account for striking
genetic variations, including the giants. Stating the traditional Bible view, the
article concludes:
Biologically speaking, humans (and just about everything
else) went through a ‘bottleneck’ at the Flood. This
means that the human population was reduced from
millions to just eight. Most of the genetic diversity from
before the Flood was lost. The new human race
descended from Noah and his family, who carried all the
genes that were eventually passed down to us. 11
“And hath made of one blood all nations of men
for to dwell on all the face of the earth,
and hath determined the times before appointed,
and the bounds of their habitation
(Acts 17:26).” [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Answers in Genesis warns that belief in UFOs is interconnected with evolution.
There are direct historical linkages between Darwinism, Theosophy and modern
UFO Lore.13 In UFO lore, it is commonly taught that life on our planet was
“seeded” by space aliens. This is an alternative evolutionary view that negates the
Biblical creation account of Genesis 1. This worldview is problematic for those
who hold to Scripture as the only source for Truth about human origins:
The idea of extraterrestrial life stems largely from a belief in evolution. Recall that in the
evolutionary view, the earth is “just another planet”—one where the conditions just happened
to be right for life to form and evolve. If there are countless billions of other planets in our
galaxy, then surely at least a handful of these worlds have also had the right conditions.
Extraterrestrial life is almost inevitable in an evolutionary worldview… 14

The evolutionists claim that mankind evolved from apes, or a common apelike
ancestor. Racial prejudice, based on the idea that mankind descended from apes,
was used as justification for genocide of so-called “inferior races.” The pseudoscience analysis of skull anatomy, facial characteristics, skin color, the shape of
the ears, and other profiling and testing was used by Social Darwinists, including
Hitler’s staff, to “prove” inferior racial DNA. This resulted in the Holocaust, forced
sterilizations and other terrible crimes against humanity. While on the one
hand denouncing such blatant evolutionist teachings, the postmodern prophecy
teachers similarly argue that there is a corrupted bloodline resulting in distorted
racial characteristics. Here is just one
offensive example:
The world must know the truth about “The
Days of Noah.” See the skulls for yourself
in On the Trail of the Nephilim—elongated,
distorted skulls with massive eye sockets,
bizarre jaw lines, and red hair! Simply put,
these skulls are not human! DNA testing is
pending!15 [bold added]

Previously we have written about the heresy known as “serpent seed” and how it
has been re-entering the church via these postmodern prophecy teachers. 17 They
claim that the Nephilim (demigod giants who are the offspring of fallen angels and
human women) proliferated at such a rate during Noah’s day that it resulted in an
6|P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
almost complete destruction of the human race. This demon/alien seed
corruption of the human race, they say, rather than profound sinful human
behavior, provoked the Lord’s anger into sending the Flood. 18 Apparently the Lord
was powerless to stop the intergalactic mating going on so He had to intervene
with a Flood. Here are examples of what is being taught about corrupted DNA
causing Noah’s Flood:

That God had to send such a universal fiat [sic] illustrates how widespread the altered
dna [sic] eventually became. In fact, the Bible says in Genesis 6:9 that only Noah—and
by extension, his children—were found “perfect” in their generation... The meaning was
not that Noah was morally perfect, but that his physical makeup—his dna [sic]—had
not been contaminated with Nephilim descent, as apparently the rest of the world had
become.19 [bold added]
~ Tom Horn, Christian author, radio host, and conference speaker

Commentators too numerous to mention have seen in this passage the miserable story
of a humanity corrupted by dark forces of spiritual wickedness in the heavens. They
broke God's law by descending into this dimension to mate with humans, producing a
mutant race called, "giants." These were the nephilim, [sic] Hebrew for "the fallen
ones." They were unclean and genetically corrupt creatures whose total preoccupation
was evil in all imaginable forms. God determined that they were irredeemable; they
had to be destroyed. "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD." These are the
generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his and (genealogically and
genetically) perfect. The Lord brought him through the judgment flood to start a new
race.20 [bold added]
~ Gary Stearman, Christian author, syndicated TV host, and conference speaker

Satan has tried many times throughout history to mingle his seed with men. He started
in the Days of Noah, which resulted in God destroying the demon-human hybrids
(Nephilim) in the Flood (Genesis 6) …21 [bold added]
~ Douglas Hamp, Christian pastor, author, and lecturer

Most people, including serious students of the Bible, are unaware of the peculiar
circumstances that led to the Flood of Noah. This has been widely misunderstood (and
mistaught) for centuries… This term [“perfect” used in Gen. 6:9 to describe Noah] is
used of physical blemishes, suggesting that Noah’s genealogy was not tarnished by this
intrusion of the fallen angels. It seems that this adulteration of the human gene pool
was a major problem on the planet Earth, and apparently Noah was among the few left
who were not thus contaminated.22 [bold added]
~ Chuck Missler, Christian author, popular Bible teacher, and conference speaker

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Before many generations, the human race was being polluted by this abominable union
with demons…It was specifically because of this ultimate sin that God brought about a
deluge of such magnitude that man and beast were drowned from the face of the
Earth.23 [bold added]
~ I.D.E. Thomas, Christian preacher, author, and professor 24

They [fallen angels] crossbred with humanity resulting in the hybrid known as the
Nephilim! This was the reason for the flood, which by the way is recorded in cultures
around the globe.25 [bold added]
~ L.A. Marzulli, Christian author, filmmaker, and conference speaker 26

Exhibit: Poster of 2015 ‘Watchers’ Conference 27

In the more specific sense, however, “corruption” of a supernaturally inflicted sort
afflicted the very genetic makeup—the DNA—of humankind when the “sons of God
came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [sic] children to them.” The sexual
unions produced “giants.” The scriptural record couldn’t be clearer. Corruption of
human genetics, then, apparently was a key reason the earth dwellers were beyond
redemption, thus had to be destroyed by the worldwide Flood. 28 [bold added]
~ Terry James, Christian author and conference speaker

The old world of Noah was destroyed precisely because of such genetic tampering.29
[bold added]
~ Gary Stearman, noted evangelical prophecy leader

It seems that these fallen angels (the Nephilim) contaminated almost all life on earth.
We do not know how many people were contaminated, but we are told that at least
Noah’s family remained genetically pure. For that reason, God destroyed the world
with a Flood.30 [bold added]
~ J.R. Church, the late founder of Prophecy in the News

DNA Corruption AFTER
Noah’s Flood?
These same prophecy leaders of the
new paradigm also teach that
human DNA was corrupted AFTER
Noah’s Flood. Worse, many teach
this corruption was the result of
mating between Space Aliens
(Extraterrestrials – E.T.s) and human
beings! Are space aliens abducting
people and inseminating them?
Below are some examples of this
popular teaching:
Exhibit: Graphic depiction of so-called alien DNA corruption31

SHARON GILBERT: The genetic manipulation that began in Mesopotamia’s earliest days
not only precipitated the Flood of Noah’s time, but it continued afterward…
…But, remember, Genesis tells us that the mingling of angelic DNA and human DNA
began before the flood, but it continued “after.” Noah’s perfect DNA grew corrupt in
most lines, but God preserved a “perfect,” kingly line that ended with Mary and her
miraculous Son, Jesus Christ.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
… some unlucky humans have seen what may be one modern version of the ancient
“dragon.” To these contactees, the skies sometimes reveal terrifying, shining crafts
[UFOs, ed.] bearing unearthly occupants whose singular purpose is to breed with
mankind. Yes, it might be debated whether these abductions involve aliens from
beyond our stars, aliens from beneath our oceans, demons pretending to be one or
both, or even the lies of our own government, but this matters not. Whether alien,
demons, or government shadows, people are being contacted and convinced that their
DNA is extracted and used in breeding experimentation.
… whatever the source of these encounters, they are part of an overarching spiritual
war. Demonic entities and fallen angels are still attempting to tweak mankind’s DNA….
Once their bodies died, the Nephilims’ spirits did not go to sheol… it appears. Instead,
they attached themselves to the earth, waiting for flesh to inhabit. When we read that
angelic hybridization returned after the flood, then it could be that angels continued to
fall (for those pre-Flood fallen angels had been chained for their sins), and/or that the
spirits of the Nephilim (demons) now plagued mankind, not only by inhabiting him
(possession) but also by re-creating him through genetic manipulation! 32 [bold and
italics added]

J.R. CHURCH: Those fallen angels who descended to Mount Hermon introduced the
“seed of the serpent” into the human race. Evidently, after the Flood, they consorted
with members of the tribe of Dan, mixing the “seed of the serpent” into the human
genome once again. The first time it happened, God judged the world with water. The
next time, it will be by fire.33 [bold added]

TOM HORN: One of the more disturbing aspects of the “beings who breach the gate”, is
“abduction”, which continues to be reported around the world. This [sic] is visitations
by small, typically Grey creatures, who supposedly pilot UFOs and conduct various
experiments on unwilling abductees. Such activity is seen as the malevolent relationship
between certain humans and these “gods” of creation. Radical aspects of their
procedures can include impregnating abductees and later removing hybrid embryos.
The ancient astronaut theory and the teaching of theologians alike look to the
prehistoric legend of Watchers (mysterious beings who first appeared in the early
cultures of the Middle East) to discuss the Anunnaki (Sumerian Gods), Nephilim (giants
referenced in Gen. 6.4), and the creation of mutant DNA following earth visitation by
“gods.”34 [bold added]

TOM HORN: Today, what some call “alien abduction,” in which a breeding program
allegedly exists resulting in alien/human hybrids, seems but a contemporary retelling of
similar DNA harvesting and genetic manipulation by those mysterious beings called
“Watchers” whose genetic modification activities we have discussed...35 [bold added]

RON SKIBA (book description): Who or what is an Archon? What is "The Genesis Six
Experiment?" Who were the Nephilim? How did they return both before and after the
Flood? What differentiates the days of Noah from the days of Jared? Were there female
Nephilim? Could the giants reproduce? Why should we be concerned about the act of
mixing animal and human DNA? Why did Jesus say the Last Days would be like the days
of Noah?37 [bold added]

CRIS PUTNAM & TOM HORN: Unnatural forms of life first sprang up in ancient days
and, according to the Bible, this is a repeatable phenomenon—that is, human
hybridization not only happened in the earliest of times, but was followed by at least a
second wave during the days of Abraham, Moses, and the Davidic kingdom, and, more
importantly, was prophesied to erupt once more in the latter days. Therefore, we shall
show unequivocally that the question is not whether humans were, can be, or are being
hybridized, but whether alien/demon agencies are involved in the process. If so, does
this imply something very uncomfortable, which most of us do not want to think about-that a form of "human" exists that quite possibly cannot be redeemed? 38 [bold added,
italics in original]

CRIS PUTNAM & TOM HORN: Indeed, almost immediately following the Great Flood,
Scripture confirms the return of hybrid humans, including Og, the King of Bashan,
whose bed was approximately fourteen feet long by six feet wide: Anak and his Anakim;

11 | P a g e

and other beings among the tribes of Emim, Horim, and Zamsumim...Does this suggest
that the Nephilim offspring were intentionally being bred down in size with each
generation, thus allowing for eventual seamless, secret integration among human
societies of pseudo-humans with "corrupted" genetic code?39 [ bold added]

TOM HORN QUOTING J.R. CHURCH: … [W]e should not be surprised that “a humanoidtype reptilian race could cohabit with human women and produce a race of giants.”40
[bold added]

From the aberrant teachings above one can see just how far UFO Lore has
penetrated biblical prophecy, giving room for the New Age cult heresy that space
aliens seeded the human race.41 Much more could be said on this disturbing
subject, but that is a topic for future examination.

When and Where Was Noah’s Flood?
One of the most perplexing aspects of this post-Flood Nephilim theory lies in the
various contradictory accounts of the supposed Nephilim evidence. Much of the
“evidence” is shrouded in ancient pagan mythological accounts. There is a serious
lack of scholarly scientific evidence. Some even claim that there are visible
remnants of a Nephilim culture before the Flood still extant on earth today.
Questions must be raised. Do these prophecy teachers believe that there actually
was a worldwide deluge that covered the mountains and wiped out all traces of
mankind, leaving only fossil remains? Or are they, like many of the New Age
cults,42 teaching that the Flood was only partial or localized in Mesopotamia, less
than disastrous, leaving behind human relics, monuments, skeletons and
“megalithic structures” (that strangely bear no evidence of being under water or
surviving a global deluge), as “evidence of Nephilim architecture”? (see Part 5)43
For example:
...[T]he Fallen One has been tampering with the gene pool since the days of Noah and
continues to do so today. He wants to create man in his own image... The Nephilim were here
and also after when the sons of God came into the daughters of men.
Hundreds of excavated graves scattered throughout the world provide evidence of their
genetic abomination—the product of the breeding of heavenly angels with the women of
Earth during the days of Noah. These ancient builders left behind evidence of their

12 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
supernatural strength and technological know-how. Their massive, megalithic structures are
legendary and evidence of Nephilim architecture abounds worldwide.
Marzulli and a team of scientists, archaeologists and scholars traveled to the jungles of a
foreign land, perhaps the only place where they could gain access to the unspoiled evidence of
this genetic manipulation—PERU—toppling perhaps the greatest cover-up in mankind’s
bizarre history. Crawling through caves deep in the Peruvian jungle, accompanied by a private
native guide, they discovered the remains of an ancient civilization, a shocking find that left the
team in awe. As they held these strange, ancient skulls in their hands, the team knew that this
was a story that must be be [sic] told. The world must know the truth about “The Days of
Noah.” See the skulls for yourself in On the Trail of the Nephilim—elongated, distorted skulls
with massive eye sockets, bizarre jaw lines, and red hair! Simply put, these skulls are not
human! DNA testing is pending!44 [bold added, italics in original]

From a scholarly, purely scientific point of view certain questions must be asked:
What is the baseline DNA sample for a fallen angel/Watcher? Where is there a
DNA sample of a proven Nephilim? An Extraterrestrial? A human hybrid? The fact
is, there are none.

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust,
avoiding profane and vain babblings,
and oppositions of science falsely so called (1 Tim. 6:20).”

Just like the evolutionists who are continually searching for their “missing link,”
these new prophecy paradigm leaders cannot produce extraterrestrialcontaminated DNA. They have to resort to wild claims of conspiracies and coverups, mythological stories and ancient pagan legends to justify their claims. Even
their conspiracy theories are difficult to document with hard evidence. In fact, it is
very easy to simply state that everything they postulate is part of a massive
government cover-up and has been secret and hidden (see Part 5). These claims
conveniently give them the ability to disregard the standard rules of scientific
inquiry and proof. So what is really going on with this purported DNA testing? It is
apparent that there is an active attempt to try to gather DNA. Below is yet
another example from L.A. Marzulli, with some of the text below it:

13 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Exhibit: Here is one skull which we handled, weighed
and photographed while in Paracas, Peru.
We are doing DNA testing on the hair sample we were
allowed to take, and so far the results have been very
interesting.45
[Ed. note: It must be pointed out that the postmodern
prophecy teachers are denying that these skeletons
they are looking at in this hemisphere are Native
American. They are claiming instead that these are
evidences of Nephilim DNA contamination. They also
claim that Nephilim giants built the Native American
Indian mounds in America, a controversial and
potentially offensive position that is at variance with
scholarly investigations.]

A Limited Plan of Redemption?
Most disturbing of all in these postmodern prophecy teachings is a comment
made by Gary Stearman, formerly of Prophecy in the News,46 who wrote in its
April 2013 magazine article "The Dark Side of Bible Prophecy," concerning the
verses Daniel 2:42-43 that
it is clear from this prophecy that there will be another, latter-day attempt by the mysterious
“they” to infiltrate the genome of mankind. They know that if human seed can be corrupted, it
will render God’s plan of redemption null and void.47

Is Stearman actually saying that God’s “plan of redemption” can be “rendered null
and void”? Is that what these other prophecy teachers are saying (in many of the
quotes above)? This assertion runs totally contrary to Scripture! Over and over
again, Scripture assures us the Truth about redemption:
“That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ. In Whom ye also
trusted, after that ye heard the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation:
in Whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the
earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of
His glory (Eph. 1:11-14).” [bold added]
14 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood
He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us…
And for this cause He is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death,
for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament,
they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance…
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him
shall He appear the second time
without sin unto salvation (Heb. 9: 12,15, 28).” [bold added]

Stearman continues with his version of the Nephilim story, which he says will
“create a race of beings” that are not human:
When did this happen the first time, and who did it? The clear answer is given in Genesis,
Chapter Six, in the record of the fallen angels who mingled their seed with the seed of
mankind, resulting in a societal monstrosity that God was forced to destroy in the Flood of
Noah. There is growing historical evidence that the entire creation – human and animal – was
tainted.
Daniel’s prophecy tells us that just before the giant statue’s iron legs crumble (in the days of the
Great Tribulation), fallen angels will descend openly to Earth once again. Then, they will
repeat their evil work…
[T]hose with eyes to see can understand that an alien force is now infiltrating the human race,
with the express purpose of creating human-alien hybrids, some of which are
indistinguishable from pure human beings. In other articles, we have documented the
abduction phenomenon in explicit detail.
And why would they do this? To create a race of beings from which the Antichrist will emerge.
In Revelation, he is called the “beast.” A beast is not a human being.
We have arrived at the heart of this “unmentionable” topic: human/alien hybridization.48 [bold

and without Him
was not any thing made that was made (John 1:3).” [bold added]

Conclusion
Answers in Genesis reminds us gently and patiently that “Humans are humans
and have been so since the beginning.”50 Furthermore, they address the
multitude of biblical problems with claiming that space aliens corrupted the
human race:
Problems are multiplied when we consider the possibility of intelligent alien life. Science fiction
programming abounds with races of people who evolved on other worlds. We see examples of
Vulcans and Klingons—pseudohumans similar to us in most respects but different in others. As
a plot device, these races allow the exploration of the human condition from the perspective of
an outsider. Although very entertaining, such alien races are theologically problematic.
Intelligent alien beings cannot be redeemed. God’s plan of redemption is for human beings:
those descended from Adam…
Christ is a blood relative of ours since He is descended from Adam as are we; all human beings
are of “one blood” ( Acts 17:26). Furthermore, since Christ is also God, His life is of infinite
value, and thus, His death can pay for all the sins of all people. That is why only the Lord Himself
could be our Savior (Isaiah 45:21). Therefore, Christ died once for all (Hebrews 10:10).51
The Redemption of ET?
When we consider how the salvation plan might apply to any hypothetical extraterrestrial (but
otherwise human-like) beings, we are presented with a problem. If there were Vulcans or
Klingons out there, how would they be saved? They are not blood relatives of Jesus, and so
16 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Christ’s shed blood cannot pay for their sin. One might at first suppose that Christ also visited
their world, lived there, and died there as well, but this is anti-biblical. Christ died once for all (1
Peter 3:18; Hebrews 9:27–28, Hebrews 10:10). Jesus is now and forever both God and man; but
He is not an alien.
One might suppose that alien beings have never sinned, in which case they would not need to
be redeemed. But then another problem emerges: they suffer the effects of sin, despite having
never sinned. Adam’s sin has affected all of creation— not just mankind. Romans 8:20–22
makes it clear that the entirety of creation suffers under the bondage of corruption. These
kinds of issues highlight the problem of attempting to incorporate an anti-biblical notion into
the Christian worldview.52

Postmodern prophecy teachers overlook the seriousness of mankind’s sin against
a holy God and place the focus upon an outside enemy: half demon, half human
creatures—hell-bent on destroying the human race by corrupting our DNA. The
far-reaching consequences of these teachings could result in a horrific new form
of racism on earth, one endorsed and sanctioned by church leaders. Rather than
warning about end-time apostasy, these teachers actually seem to be creating it!
Their message is seductive and full of potent and scary imagery. It is based on a
corruption of Scripture mixed with ancient and New Age occult teachings. It
seems plausible, but when one begins to ask the hard scientific and biblical
questions, it begins to look more like its close cousin—science fiction.
The Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice on the Cross to deal with
mankind’s sin once for all. His payment for our sin forms the backbone of the
Gospel. There is no salvation apart from God’s dealing with our sin problem and
our recognition and surrender to that vital truth, as Ken Ham reminds us:
People often ask the question: ‘If there is so much evidence that God created the world and
sent a global cataclysmic flood called Noah’s Flood, then surely all scientists would believe
this?’ The answer is given here in 2 Peter 3. It is simply not a matter of evidence to convince
people, for people don’t want to be convinced. We read in Romans 1:20 that there is enough
evidence to convince everyone that God is Creator, so much so that we are condemned for not
believing. Furthermore, Romans 1:18 also tells us that men ‘suppress the truth in
unrighteousness’. Again, the Bible is telling us that it is not a matter of there not being enough
evidence to convince people that the Bible is true, since they don’t want to believe the Bible
anyway. The reason for this is obvious. If people believed in the God of the Bible, then they
would have to submit themselves to His authority and obey the rules He has laid down.
However, every human being suffers from the same problem, the sin which Adam committed
back there in the Garden of Eden, a ‘disease’ which we all inherit. Adam’s sin was rebellion

against God’s authority. Likewise, people everywhere today are in rebellion against God, so to
admit that the Bible is true would be an admission of their own sinful and rebellious nature,
and of their need to be born again by cleansing through the blood of Christ. 53

“For yet a little while, and He that shall come
will come,
and will not tarry (Heb. 10:37).”

The "Return" of the Alien Super Soldier
Awaiting the 2nd Coming of the Nephilim:
Transhumanist Alien Super Soldiers— “as in the days of Noah”
by Gaylene Goodroad

… “alien” and/or animal characteristics will be introduced to the human gene pool and spread
through intermarriage, altering the human genetic code and eventually eliminating humanity
as we know it. According to many theologians, this is what happened before the Great Flood,
allowing for Nephilim incarnation and perhaps has been the whole idea for the end times as
well—to create a generation of genetically altered “fit extensions” for the resurrection of
underworld Nephilim hordes in preparation of Armageddon.55

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Homo Nephilus Returns
In Part 1 of this book, “Homo Nephilus,” we reported that the emerging
Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) leaders have corrupted the key biblical
doctrines directly tied to the Gospel of salvation, beginning with the idea that the
Lord God sent the Flood of Noah—not because of mankind’s sin and
wickedness—but in order to stop the corruption of the human gene pool from
Nephilim DNA contamination. The PPP teachers contend that these demonhuman hybrids threatened to wipe out humanity in Noah's day, beckoning God’s
intervention to save mankind through the Deluge. 56
The Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) leaders also teach that space alien
Nephilim creatures will be returning to earth “as in the days of Noah” to mate
again with human beings and extend their own race, thus threatening the
existence of mankind once again. This corruption of Scripture’s plain meaning
invents a new prophecy focus in the evangelical world – that of an impending
invasion by monstrous space alien soldiers!
According to the theories of these PPP teachers, God Almighty sent Noah's Flood
upon the earth—not because of the inherent sinfulness and wickedness of
mankind—but because the human gene pool (genome) had been corrupted by
“Watchers” (fallen angels/extraterrestrials/pagan gods) who mated with human
women, producing an evil, mutant race of giant hybrids (demigods) called
“Nephilim.” Only Noah and his family remained genetically unstained by this
celestial interbreeding with mankind. These PPP teachers further claim that
Jesus’s prophecy: “as it was in the days of Noah” (Matt. 24:37), really means that
the “Watchers” (parents of the Nephilim/alien life) will be returning to earth
through multi/hyper-dimensional portals/stargates to repeat the events in
Genesis 6—ultimately threatening to wipe out humanity as we know it.
Twisting and turning the Scripture upside down, modern Nephilim aficionados are
preparing their students and readers for the return of the Nephilim—not the
return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Extra-biblical mythology and occult lore are quickly
supplanting true Bible study and holy living. Speculation and supposition are
rapidly rising, replacing proper biblical exegesis.57 Instead of looking for the soon
return of the Lord Jesus Christ with a charge to holy living, PPP adherents exhort
20 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Christians to look for signs of these dark, mutant creatures, and make plans to
engage them, if necessary (see Part 3).58
It is astonishing how Jesus’s words are wrenched and contorted out of their
biblical context to fit these emerging PPP false doctrines. According to some
espousing this dark fable, the “they” Jesus pointed to in Matthew and Luke were
not people—but Nephilim! In a previous article, “The Rise of Apocalyptic
Paganism: Biblical Prophecy in Crisis,” we cited an interview between L.A. Marzulli
and Derek Gilbert, both high-profile PPP teachers, who admit they are twisting
Scripture:
GILBERT: Jesus didn’t specifically mention the Nephilim return…. He didn’t specifically say,
‘just as it was when the giants were roaming the land,’… He seems to indicate, and there are
those who will interpret it this way, that what He meant was people just weren’t paying
attention. They were running about, doing their thing, not paying attention to spiritual matters
and suddenly, destruction comes down… So what then is it about Matthew 24 and Luke 17 that
convinces you that what Jesus really meant was something He didn’t specifically say—was
talking about the presence of Nephilim in the land in those days?
MARZULLI: Well, the question is, when in that passage, who is ‘the they’? Who is ‘the they’
that are eating and drinking?... When we read in Genesis 6, ‘the they’ are not human beings. It
says, ‘the sons of God saw the daughters of man,’ it’s referring to the B’nai HaElohim—which
are the fallen angels! ‘They’ were eating and drinking and given in marriage. And that’s why I
believe this is, this is what’s coming. This is what’s coming on the earth. In fact in some ways,
it’s already here.59 [bold added]

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days
that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until
the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all
away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (Matt. 24:37-39).” [bold added]

The Alien Super Soldiers Are Coming!
Who is the “they”? The answer is shocking! L.A. Marzulli gives other clues as to
who he considers the nonhuman “they” from Matthew 24 might be in an article
he posted on his blog in October 2012, entitled, “UFO News: Alien Soldiers? You
be the Judge…” (It included the graphic at the top of this segment). In his blog
21 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
post, Marzulli cites the claims of a UFO expert, Gary McKinnon, and republished
portions of an article, “Presidential Election: Alien Soldiers exist says Gary
McKinnon.” Marzulli gives full credence to this report, and then comments:
As U.S. Presidential candidates debated, UFO Sightings Daily reported that Gary McKinnon
“discovered files about twenty to thirty non-terrestrial officers (off world).” Mr. Waring
elaborates on 16 October 2012 that Mr. McKinnon “saw their ranks, and ship to ship transfers
off world.” [underscore added]
This is an interesting bit of video in that it may expose what some of us have been saying for
over a decade. ET is here and is
part of the Military/Industrial
complex. Gary McKinnon who is
the UK hacker the US has been
trying to extradite to stand trial,
announced in this video, Alien
soldiers exist. This may be a
stretch for some of us, but I have
heard reports of this ever since I
began researching Nephilim in
the late 80′s.60
Exhibit: Hacker McKinnon says ‘warships already in space’ 61

Who is Gary McKinnon, and is he a reliable and credible expert? Hardly! According
to newspaper accounts, Gary McKinnon is a computer hacker who was indicted
by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia for seven counts of
computer-related crime, each of which carried a potential ten-year jail sentence.62
McKinnon “admitted he accessed US government computers” when he “was
looking for evidence of UFOs.”63 He claims that he “found a log that listed nonterrestrial officers” (i.e., space aliens) and that the “US military has a secret
battalion in space.” Unfortunately, Mr. McKinnon also admitted that “he was
usually smoking pot when he hacked, so that prevented him from remembering
the names” of these spaceships.64
The McKinnon article, cited by Marzulli as his source for information, claims that
the Office of the President of the U.S. acts under the direction of “the controllers”
who are “Archons.” It cites well-known New Age leader John Lash and his
documentation on metahistory.org as the source of that revelation! Marzulli
seizes upon the last line of the article as proof of his own theories, and postulates
22 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
that because Archon is the Greek word for principality, therefore it must mean
that “they” are Nephilim – “Alien Super soldiers”:
Is there a connection between principalities or, Arche/Archon’s and the realm of the Fallen
Angels? In my opinion there is and this is part of the coming great deception I have written
about for over a decade now. If McKinnon is giving us credible information, then it is ground
breaking and creates a link to the fallen angels openly manifesting on the earth. Jesus warns us
it will be like the days of Noah when he returns. What differentiates those days is the presence
of the fallen angels on the earth. If McKinnon’s information is true, and there’s no way to vet
it, then we’re not in Kansas anymore.
…I think we do ourselves a great injustice when we underestimate what this might mean. Alien
Super soldiers? Nephilim hybrids? If McKinnon’s story is true we’re in for some interesting
days in the future.65 [bold, underscore added]

Note again that Marzulli did not derive his ideas about “Alien Super Solders”,
“non-terrestrial officers,” and “Archons” from Ephesians 6—but from “ancient
pagan Gnostics” and a United Kingdom hacker fighting extradition to the United
States! Furthermore, note that his whole premise is founded upon UFO
conspiracy theories which are not provable but based on virulent speculation.

The Alien “Archon” Invasion
This claim of “Alien Super Soldiers” is just one of several evocative terms used by
PPP adherents to describe hideous entities that are apparently synonymous (in
their minds) with the Nephilim hordes and other nefarious hybrid creatures and
pagan entities purportedly created by mixing human and demon DNA. “Archon” is
just another term they like to bandy about. PPP
aficionado, Rob Skiba, wrote a book with a
sensational title, The Archon Invasion and the
Return of the Nephilim, and eerie book cover. Here
is a description of this book from Skiba’s website:
Who or what is an Archon? What was "The Genesis Six
Experiment" about? Who were the Nephilim? How did they
return both before and after the Flood? What differentiates
the days of Noah from the days of Jared? Were there female
Nephilim? Could the giants reproduce? Why should we be
concerned about the act of mixing animal and human DNA?

Such end-time PPP plots continue to sell books, DVDs, and unbiblical notions.

Transhuman Soldiers: A ‘New Breed’?
As if demonic tinkering with human DNA was not fantastic enough, some have
further imagined and speculated that the so-called “Watchers” might need some
human help in fulfilling these scary scenarios. Human beings may be creating
Frankenstein-type creatures (see Part 8). This is based on claims that mutant
humanoids can be (or are already being) created via DNA tinkering. Leading the
pack in this sensational layer of apostasy is Tom Horn, who wrote and published
Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology,
Nanotechnology and Human Enhancement Herald the Dawn of TechnoDimensional Spiritual Warfare. Horn piggybacks his PPP Nephilim False
Eschatology onto the transhumanism movement in order to arrive at places never
envisioned by Gene Roddenberry or Rod Serling.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Horn posted an open letter on his former Raiders News Update69 website on
September 14, 2010, entitled: “Open Letter to Christian Leaders on Biotechnology
and the Future of Man.” Note his tone and urgency in the Foreword to this letter:
In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity
toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to
redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural
movement known as transhumanism, whose vision is supported by a growing list of U.S.
military advisors, bioethicists, law professors, and academics, intends the use of biotechnology,
genetic engineering, nanotechnology, cybernetics, and artificial intelligence as tools that will
radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even
perhaps—as Joel Garreau, in his bestselling book Radical Evolution, claims—our very souls. The
technological, cultural and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a
future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans…. The issues raised
by human-transforming science must be addressed by Christian leaders in a serious national
conversation. To fail in this responsibility may lead to the question “what does it mean to be
human” being abdicated to a frightening transhuman vision.70 [bold, underscore added]

Transhumanism is a high-tech, bio-tech concept is working to create a physical
"new breed" of man. There is also a mystical component to it that comes from
Hermeticism and Theosophy (see Part 8). Mysticism plus science results in an
emerging pseudoscience which is very popular in the New Age Movement (see
Part 6). It is also increasingly gaining credence in the emerging evangelical
Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm movement.
An international Christian expert on the ethical implications of nanotechnology,
Dr. Martin Erdmann, warned us about the mystical component of transhumanism
ideology in his Herescope article, “Creatures in Pursuit of Autonomous
Perfection”:
Transhumanism takes human enhancement further, in morphing the vision of perfect man into
a human-machine complex properly called “posthuman”… The actual work of transhumanism
involves technologies such as brain-computer interfaces, neuropharmacology, and perhaps
most notably, nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is a molecular science, whose other pursuits
range from alternative energy to cancer cures... Yet rather than confining itself to “simple”
goals of healing cancer or even restoring sight, transhumanism posits that men are in an early
stage of evolution, and pushes to enhance fundamentally humanity through nanotechnology
and other sciences... Despite transhumanist rejection of supernatural force, its philosophy
mirrors mysticism…71 [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
When Horn’s fanciful concoctions of “a new species of unrecognizably superior
humans” are married to end-times biblical prophecy they become a seductively
potent deception, full of ancient occult spirituality mixed with New Age UFO
mysticism. But Horn is not alone in his transhuman gene-tampering ideas.
Douglas Hamp,72 a PPP leader who is a former assistant Pastor at Calvary Chapel,
Costa Mesa, and author of Corrupting the Image: Angels, Aliens, and the Antichrist
Revealed, appeared on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory in 2012. Coast to
Coast radio has a long history, going back to its days with host Art Bell, as being
one of the chief purveyors of occult, paranormal, New Age, Bigfoot, UFOs, and
other wild conspiracy theories. Nevertheless, many of the PPP leaders have been
recurring guests on this program. In his radio interview, Hamp proposes that
there is a Satanic army being created “to fight Jesus upon his return” and
connects this Satanic army to the Nephilim:
Hebrew scholar and expert in biblical prophecy, Douglas Hamp, warned that we're entering
into an era of genetic manipulation that will set the stage for celestial intervention into the
affairs of mankind. He predicted that within the next ten years a major disclosure event will
take place which will convince the public to cooperate with aliens (who are actually demons
rather than ETs) to participate in the next level of evolution. These aliens are using a
hybridization program, mixing human genetics with the Satanic, in order to create an army to
fight Jesus upon his return, he postulated. Further, he suggested that the hybrids might be
currently kept in underground facilities. [bold, underscore added]
He correlated such beings with biblical accounts, in which the Nephilim or fallen angels, mated
with human females, and had offspring, some of whom were said to be giants. Scientific
tampering with the genetic code, such as with recombinant DNA, may lead to the possibility
that people will be offered genetic enhancements, and if they accept them they'll be turned
into Satanic hybrids, akin to the Bible's 'mark of the beast,' Hamp commented.73 [bold added]

Unfortunately, these statements diminish Jesus Christ, our resurrected Savior,
who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and who shall "overcome" by the sword
which "proceeded out of His mouth" (Rev. 17: 14; 19:13-16). Hamp's remarks
sound more like a Hollywood science fiction movie than what Jesus actually tells
us in Scripture about the last days.
These terrifying mythical ideas were further embellished by Hamp when he spoke
at the 2012 Prophecy Summit in Branson, Missouri. During a roundtable
discussion with L.A. Marzulli, Rob Skiba and Derek Gilbert (all PPP leaders). Doug

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Hamp included space aliens in his science fiction view of the Lord’s return. In his
discussion of Revelation 19, notice how boldly he tosses in a few new doctrines to
create an apocalyptic scenario involving physical warfare:
HAMP: I actually think it’s going to be something like this: that we’re going to have sort of a
good alien and bad alien kind of thing. And the so-called good aliens will be those that will get
there first, and they’re saying, ‘you know what, people of the world? You should be glad that
we got here first. Cause there’s a hostile alien force that’s hot on our tracks. They’re going to
be here in about seven years. And if we get busy, and, ah, get to work, and start making you
guys into Nephilim, then we can overcome them. And, uh, so you need to be changed, because
when they come, they’re going to try to take away your way of life. They’re going to try to stop
you from having all that fun. And we can overcome them together.’74 [bold, underscore
added]

Note the remarks about “we can overcome them together.” Are these men
implying that Christians must use spiritual warfare, technological warfare, or
some combination thereof, in order assist Jesus when He returns to earth? Are
they saying the humankind on earth must fight off these enemy (space
alien/Nephilim) combatants? This is a disturbing scenario that runs totally
contrary to Scripture. Unfortunately, it fits in all too well with the aberrant
teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation and also the New Age Movement.75

Armageddon’s Super Soldier—Homo Nephilus
According to the PPP mindset, earth needs to be prepared to be invaded by
genetically mutated Nephilim. In creating these scenarios, their imagination has
no limits. Consider these excerpts from a recent NewsWithViews article written
by Tom Horn. Everything is based on wild speculations. Horn is relying upon
undocumented pseudoscience, conspiracy theories, and an unholy mixture of
myths with Scripture in order to raise the following hypothetical questions:

Given advances in Grin technology, transhumanist aspirations, and the admitted new
arms race of human enhancement discussed in previous entries, imagine the staggering
spiritual warfare implications of such science if dead Nephilim tissue were discovered
with intact dna [sic] and a government somewhere was willing to clone or mingle the
extracted organisms for use in (re)creating the ultimate super soldier—HomoNephilim. If one accepts the biblical story of Nephilim as real [Ed. note: Horn's version of
this story relies on extra-biblical sources], such discovery could actually be made
someday—or perhaps already has been and was covered up. [bold, underscore added]

27 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

The ramifications of using science to revive extinct animals or Nephilim could extend
beyond cloning to include a mysterious germ-line connection with the armies of
Armageddon and the kingdom of Antichrist. This is because as interbreeding begins
between transgenic animals, genetically modified humans, and species as God made
them, the altered dna [sic] will quickly migrate into the natural environment. When that
happens (as is already occurring among genetically modified plants and animals), “alien”
and/or animal characteristics will be introduced to the human gene pool and spread
through intermarriage, altering the human genetic code and eventually eliminating
humanity as we know it. According to many theologians, this is what happened before
the Great Flood, allowing for Nephilim incarnation and perhaps has been the whole
idea for the end times as well—to create a generation of genetically altered “fit
extensions” for the resurrection of underworld Nephilim hordes in preparation of
Armageddon. [bold, underscore added]

Exhibit: Cover of the Horns’ 2010 book76

Noting that Isaiah ties the destruction of Iraq/Babylon with the reappearance of
gibborim in this way, we recall how thousands of U.S. troops, on invading Iraq during
the Bush administration, admittedly filled U.S. containers with archaeological materials,
including what some have speculated to be cuneiform tablets pointing to the location
of pure-blooded Nephilim buried in underground caves. This is exactly where Enoch
said the dead antediluvian Nephilim are, and raises fascinating questions: Would
agencies like Darpa have interest in studying or cloning the extinct beings if they were,

28 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
or have been, found? Could man in his arrogance revive ancient dna [sic], revitalizing or
blending it with other living organisms in a way similar to what the Watchers did in
making the first Nephilim? Is the factual reappearance on earth of such legendary
beings verified by Isaiah, who also foresaw transhuman creatures such as satyrs
(transgenic half-men, half-goats) accompanying the return of giants in the end times, or
why other apocryphal books like 2 Esdras 5:8 prophesy the birth of “monsters” for the
same period of time? [bold added] (see Part 7)

The ancient Book of Jubilees—another apocryphal text—considers the same time frame
and verifies contemporaneous Nephilim resurrection. The familiar word “corruption”
turns up again in association with these beings, insinuating an end-times repeat of what
the Watchers did by corrupting human dna [sic] and blending it with animals to retrofit
human bodies for Nephilim incarnation.

The well-known prophecy in the second chapter of the book of Joel also includes
reference to returning gibborim (giants, Nephilim offspring). Though expositors tend to
view Joel describing an army of locusts, he includes gibborim in his descriptions in the
phrase “they shall run like mighty men [gibborim].” Does this mean something besides
the fact that grasshoppers will be involved in Joel’s end-times army? [bold, underscore
added]

To “mingle” nonhuman seed with Homo sapiens through altering human dna [sic]
while simultaneously returning Nephilim to earth has been the inspiration of the spirit
of Antichrist ever since God halted the practice during the Great Flood.77 [bold added]

Notice that when Jesus spoke about the last days before His return, He never
mentioned an end-time army of Nephilim hordes. Horn’s fantastic and faulty
premise hinges on unbridled speculations that phantom alien soldiers— “Homo
Nephilim”—may be somehow connected to the undisclosed findings in the desert
during the Gulf War. This undocumented scenario is further advanced by Christian
PPP author Steve Quayle. Note his description of these creatures (purportedly
from recent true events) that formed the basis of his fictional book, LongWalkers:
Since my new book "Longwalkers - The Return of the Nephilim" is written in a fictional format,
derived from my movie script - I have included the personal letter that I received from the pilot
who flew a 12-foot tall, dead, cannibalistic giant out of the Middle East after destroying a
Special Forces group hunting the Taliban in 2005. The giant had six fingers and six toes and the
Longwalkers book cover is a VERY accurate artistic representation of the actual event. The pilot
related to me in our subsequent phone call certain things that only someone who actually
observed the giant could have possibly known. I suggest those of you who know what "The
Days of Noah" really means, prepare accordingly!78 [bold added]

Note the gruesome illustration. It
is curious, considering the
number of so-called witnesses to
this “six-fingered cannibalistic
giant,” that no one had the
inclination to snap a photograph

depicted on the book’s cover. But

throughout the PPP conspiracy theory literature.

The Rise of the Satanic Super Soldier
The outrageous plot of the fictional LongWalkers, however, pales in comparison
to the dark ideas espoused by Pastor Russ Dizdar, author of Black Awakening: The
Rise of the Satanic Super Soldier. Dizdar’s occult end-time scenario was profiled in
an article with the same title written by Sue Bradley (now deceased). It was
posted on Derek and Sharon Gilbert’s P.I.D. (Peering into the Darkness) website in
2008. Indeed, this subject an appalling peering into the darkness. Note Bradley’s
introduction of Dizdar and his teaching methods:
The Black Awakening has nothing to do with a specific human race. The Black Awakening does
however have everything to do with another race. But what race?
Pastor Russ Dizdar is all about spiritual warfare: studying, exposing, warning and teaching. For
over thirty years and from thousands of hours of prayer and experience, his remarkable insight
has led to an understanding of which most of us have never known…80 [bold added]

Note that these “remarkable insights” that “most of us have never known” have
come, not from Holy Scripture, but from Dizdar’s thirty years of experience. After
mentioning “hybrid Nephilim,” Bradley asks this question:
Is it possible that the embers of ancient confusion, contest, and conquest — smoldering
through the millennia of recent recorded history and kept alive with sacrificial rituals — will
30 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
soon reignite a spark to light the torch of the ancient Black Flame? What is going on? The chaos
is increasing.81 [bold added]

What “Black Flame” is the author referring to that might be “reignited” in the
near future? One certainly can’t find it in the Bible! Nor can one find it in scholarly
archeological publications. After highlighting a few of the dark machinations of
the Third Reich, Bradley continues with her futuristic conspiracy theory:
But the strange exploration was not limited to bloodlines. A driving search for ancient
technology or information was of equal if not greater importance. Expeditions to Tibet, present
day Iraq, Iran and other Middle East venues were undertaken for the purpose of acquiring
knowledge or artifacts that might have been of enormous value in the development of
sophisticated weapons systems.
Is it possible, that with this advanced knowledge, these highly trained scientists and
industrialists, while providing direction and continued development to their respective
‘adopted’ scientific and intelligence programs, also maintained inner communication? That
while ironically and strategically ensconced in every continent on the Earth and beyond, they
continued their horrific, ancient quest, generously funded by possibly complicit ‘host’
governors and their unsuspecting dependents?82 [bold added]

To answer this question concerning this “horrific ancient quest,” Sue Bradley
alludes to future “horrific possibilities,” and then quotes Pastor Dizdar regarding
“A pre-apocalyptic counterfeit of Genesis 1:2” and the “weaponization of the
satanic powers.” This dark and foreboding horror story has absolutely nothing to
do with Scripture. Rather this is a story that is designed to frighten the reader:
“The weaponization of the satanic powers is not a bizarre movie idea. Its [sic] something that
military leaders are convinced they will need. Mil-science has been and is invaded, someone is
looking over their shoulders and it is not human. The dark powers have and are supervising the
development of a technology that will ensure the control of the mind along with the
supernatural enhancement of fierce soldiers.
“There has been and is ongoing, a weaponization of demonic ideology and power for the
alteration of the human will and ability. Could this be the power of the blood of Nephilim? The
weaponization of Nephilim blood. Did they [the Third Reich, ed.] find the Aryan pure blood?
The blood with the genetics of the demon gods?” …
“We are seeing the preparation for the most advanced, supernatural military system in the
history of the world: empowered, enlarged, enlightened, transmuted, with a raging insatiabl e
and demonic agenda. And nothing we are seeing now can prepare us for the next few years.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
“The goal? To create massive anarchy and chaos for the
purpose of collapsing the current structures to be
replaced with the New World Order. They have been
“creating” the Chosen Ones for over sixty years for the
creation of the Master Race to be used in service for a
1,000 year Fourth Reich.”
“Most don’t know that it is predicted that an army will
surface such as the world has never seen. An army whose
leaders and soldiers will be the most fierce and evil ever.
Many of them shall be birthed in satanic powers, bathed
in satanic secrecy and will demonstrate supernatural
strength and abilities. Forged in hell,” says Pastor
Dizdar.83 [bold, underscore added]

Sue Bradley then records Tom Horn’s analysis of Dizdar’s terrifying end-time
scenario involving a future mechanized supernatural army made up of fierce
demonic super soldiers— “the creation of the Master Race to be used in service
for a 1,000 year Fourth Reich.” Bradley quotes Tom Horn:
“Of course one might argue that this could be a gradual process. This is a tragic assumption. In
fact, the process will be rapid, undertaken with surprise attacks employing plagues and hi -tech,
microscopic nanomachines designed to bring about the demise of its host. This won’t be a
process in which one race replaces another, slowly and peacefully, even if that is the
misrepresentation that most people receive. It will be violent, bloody conflict.
“What is planned is a quick change, a coup d’état where mankind is there one day, and in mass
graves the next. The goal is to replace mankind.”85 [bold added]

Satan’s goal has NEVER been to “replace mankind”— but to deceive mankind—to
keep people from believing the Gospel of salvation (Jn. 8:44; Eph. 6:11; 1 Pet. 5:8;
Rev. 12:9). If this is so, and the Bible says that it is, then neither would any hybrid
creatures, supposedly harvested from the devil’s seed or manipulated from his
DNA, desire to replace man either! These fantastic fables are in fact delusions that
will draw souls away from the solace of Truth found ONLY in Scripture. The Lord
Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of the devil (1 Jn. 3:8). Yet, Sue Bradley
summarizes these dire apocalyptic forecasts not found anywhere in the Word of
God and hints at a foreboding future filled with terrifying implications:

Tom Horn collaborated with Steve Quayle and Sue Bradley in other projects that
explore similar sinister end-time scenarios. Horn first shared these ideas in the
first part of his provocative article series-turned-book, “Zenith 2016: Did
Something Begin in 2012…That Will Zenith in 2016?” 88 The series was
incorporated into a book by the same title in 2013. Zenith 2016 was actually the
revised and expanded version of Horn’s 2009 book, Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost
Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed. Since the pagan
god Apollyon (Apollo) did not materialize in 2012 (nor any of the other doomsday
predictions found in his book), Horn apparently gave the pagan deity four more
years to make an appearance, as well as time to sell more books on these horrific
topics (see Part 4). The reader can be assured Horn’s pagan entity will not appear
in 2016 either.
Instead of preparing the flock of God for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, these
PPP leaders instead have concocted sensational, seductive, and satanic fables
focused upon envisioned horrific hybrid combat solders. These stories are not
founded nor grounded in Scripture.
“And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall be turned unto fables (2 Tim. 4:4).”

33 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
THE TRUTH:
This end-time Nephilim return scenario negates the Lord’s admonition to
readiness and godly living—with a view to His soon Second Coming (1 John 2:28; 1
Thess. 1:10; 2:19; 3:13; 4:1-18; 5:23). Note that none of the PPP myths can be
clearly found in the Bible text itself. These PPP teachers rely on extreme extrabiblical and occult sources in order to construct their fantastic end-time
scenarios.89
If the foundation laid by God in Genesis 6 is shifted away from personal sin to
supposed invading gods and demonic DNA, then likewise Christ’s prophecy
concerning “the days of Noah” is altered to fit the Nephilim scenario. Under the
false emerging Nephilim eschatologies taught by these PPP leaders, mankind
doesn't need to be worried about sin before the Lord's impending judgment;
rather, men only need to be worried about invading hordes of Alien Nephilim!
This is a serious corruption of the Truth found in Scripture! Note the Lord’s actual
teaching:
“And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were
eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that
Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all (Luke 17:26-27).”
For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood
they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the
ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the
Son of Man be (Matt. 24:37-39).” [bold added]

The Scripture mentions four things that will be taking place on the earth prior to
His return: mankind will be “eating,” “drinking,” “marrying,” and “being given in
marriage.” It is obvious that this passage is talking about men. There is NO
mention of an outside demonic horde planning to corrupt the human gene pool
by sexual and reproductive means! The clear implication of these sobering
passages is that people—sinners—will be doing normal things up until the time
judgment comes. They won’t be prepared for what happens very quickly—like the
flood waters that overtook the men and women of Noah’s day. The details for this
judgment are found in the Book of Revelation—and the Nephilim are
conspicuously absent from all twenty-two chapters!
34 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
That fact is that Jesus did not mention the Nephilim, or such a scenario, in even
one of the 51 verses in Matthew 24. The context in this passage is the judgment
of mankind. Plain Scripture teaches that when the Lord Jesus returns, “all the
tribes of earth mourn” (v. 30), because He’s coming in judgment—a judgment
which will be swift and cataclysmic, “until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be” (Matt. 24: 38-39). Those outside of Noah’s ark
(mankind) were all “taken away” in judgment.
Understanding that the Lord Jesus Christ said He would return should put our
focus on spreading the Gospel of Salvation to those who are unsaved.

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables,
when we made known unto you the power
and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
but were eyewitnesses of his majesty
(2 Peter 1:16).”
“Of His own will begat He us with the Word of Truth,
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures....
Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness,
and receive with meekness the engrafted Word,
which is able to save your souls
(James 1:18, 21).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Militant Cosmic Warfare
In Part 2 of this book, “The Return of the Alien Super Soldiers,” we demonstrated
how the Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) leaders have concocted unbiblical
doctrines concerning the supposed soon return of other-worldly creatures—
Nephilim, ETs, pagan gods (Apollo), demonic hybrids, and transhumanist
(chimera) soldiers. They claim this is what is meant by the Scripture “as in the
days of Noah.” Rather than “looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious
appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13), these PPP
teachers are alerting the Christian troops to prepare for a coming cosmic war.
PPP leaders believe the Church must wrest dominion from the devilish realm
utilizing their own brand of Techno-Dimensional Prayer Combat. To accommodate
this emerging false eschatology,92 these leaders have also devised new spiritual
warfare methodologies they believe will protect the flock of God from the
returning militant mutant-hybrid hordes.93 Even more alarmingly, the PPP leaders
are now converging with the leadership of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).
What is the New Apostolic Reformation? Amy Spreeman briefly profiles this
global dominionist movement, whose practices are steeped in mysticism, and
gives us an ominous inkling into this PPP/NAR convergence:
The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a dominionist movement which asserts that God is
restoring the lost offices of church governance, namely the offices of Prophet and Apostle.
Leading figures in this seemingly loosely organized movement claim that these prophets and
apostles alone have the power and authority to execute God’s plans and purposes on earth .
They believe they are laying the foundation for a global church, governed by them.
They place a greater emphasis on dreams, visions and extra-biblical revelation than they do on
the Bible, claiming that their revealed teachings and reported experiences (e.g. trips to heaven,
face-to-face conversations with Jesus, visits by angels) cannot be proven by the ‘old’ Scripture.
(Source)
Rather than preach the Gospel of the cross, Apostolic leaders are working to bring the Gospel of
the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. They do this by taking dominion of earthly kingdoms or
“mountains” of government, media, entertainment, education, business, family, and religion.
Leaders often talk of city building and organize prayer walks to pray against demonic
strongholds. They often speak of being mission-focused rather than being Christ-centered…
Though members are not always charismatic, they frequently emphasize a manifestation of
“Glory” and “God’s presence,” and often have a special anointing to receive direct revelation

from God, perform healings and other signs and wonders. They teach that our purpose is to
achieve our dream destiny so that we can change the world.94 [bold added]

For many years the NAR leaders have been preaching about bringing heaven to
earth95 and warning about preparing for spiritual battles in the heavenlies. The
NAR has taught that the Church is facing an
“unfolding war that lies ahead in both the natural
and the spiritual realms.”96 They believe they can
open portals (or gates) to the heavenlies that will
facilitate their 7 mountain kingdom expansion
program here on earth. For example, note the
purpose of a 2008 NAR event:
We see this as a time to pull Heaven down and establish
the Kingdom of God with every step that you take as the
revival breakthrough angel is displacing spiritual forces
over this region.97 [bold added]

The Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) leadership is now co-mingling with
NAR leaders. Although the event was postponed, PPP leader LA Marzulli was
scheduled to be a featured speaker at a NAR gathering in Sedona, Arizona in
2013, called “Resurgence Awakening: Thriving Amidst Supernatural Convergence”

In other words, the NAR was to glean from Marzulli’s bizarre teachings about the
Nephilim, UFOs, and pagan-style spiritual warfare—and vice versa. This collusion
will surely add more fuel to the already volatile “Forerunner Eschatology” of the
NAR, which teaches that the bride of Christ must take control (via spiritual and/or
physical warfare) of the earth before Jesus can return. 100 Presumably they will at
some point add in the PPP’s cosmic combat elements to their already brutal101
end-time scenarios involving the Lord’s Bride.

Mystical Significance of Sedona
To put this into the entire NAR Dominionism context, note that previously a
“Passover Glory Festival” was also held on April 5-7, 2012 in Sedona, AZ featuring
Randy DeMain and Lance Wallnau (of the 7 Mountain of Dominionism fame).103
Randy DeMain (NAR) is also well known in the PPP leadership. 104 This Latter Rainstyle Passover was being celebrated with the promise that “the Heavens open up
and the Spirit comes down with clear prophetic direction while healing, miracles
and signs follow” as well as promises of “miracles, healing” and “Passing over into
Your Destiny.”105 [bold added]

Exhibit: DeMain (NAR) & Marzulli (PPP) together again in 2012106

The other keynotes were David and Stephanie Herzog whose ministries are also
headquartered in Sedona.107 David Herzog is a high profile leader in the New
Apostolic Reformation.108 The Herzogs frequently hold Latter Rain versions of
celebrations of Jewish feasts in Sedona, which is located in the mountains, where
it was claimed participants could “Tap into an open Heaven window.” 109 (Keep in
mind that in the New Age UFO lore, 110 Sedona is claimed to have “mysterious
powers at one or other vortex there”111 and it appears that the NAR also believes
that it is a hyper-dimensional portal.)

Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare
In a previous Herescope article describing the emergence of “Militant Prayer,” we
also noticed that the new PPP battle-ready spiritual warfare concoctions are
simply revamped and repackaged Latter Rain deceptions that are part of the New

40 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Apostolic Reformation’s teachings. In particular we focused on Tom Horn, one of
the leaders of the PPP. In that article I wrote:
Prayer Warfare methodologies conceived and borne out of the Latter Rain Movement and
nurtured under the New Apostolic Reformation are going mainstream. Twenty years ago, Chief
NAR apostle, C. Peter Wagner, applied his Church Growth teachings to the spirit realm in what
he termed Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare (SLSW). The plan calls for identifying “territorial
spirits” (demons) of a geographic locality, then devising practices (such as militant intercession
and fasting) and techniques to defeat these unseen foes so that cities, nations, and beyond will
respond to the Gospel.
Sadly, this heresy is creeping into conservative Christian forums unawares through various
prophetic ministries concerned about the eschatological implications of transhumanism and
loosely related subjects. While attending a conservative Bible and prophecy conference several
months ago, I noticed that one of the speakers introduced the audience to a new book by
Christian authors Tom and Nita Horn, called: Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial
Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, And Human Enhancement [GRIN] Herald the
Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare [bold added]. Intrigued by this title, I bought
the book to learn more about this new thing called “Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare.”
I didn’t get beyond the book’s Preface before my curious anticipation turned to alarm:
"Facing godlike machines and man’s willingness to cross over species and extra-dimensional
barriers put in place by God, traditional methods of spiritual warfare—which Christian
institutions have relied on for the last century—will soon be monumentally impacted in
nontraditional ways and insufficient when approaching this threshold."112 [bold, underscore
added]
“Traditional” methods of spiritual warfare such as simple reliance upon God, His Word, and the
indwelling Spirit will soon be insufficient? When did God change His plan? Clearly this new
insight did not come from the Scriptures. I kept reading for clarification. 113

Note Tom Horn’s negation of the God’s biblical prescription for spiritual warfare—
saying that those “traditional methods” put in place by the Lord (as in Ephesians
6) will not be sufficient to withstand the horrible “godlike machines” coming upon
the earth. That is why the PPP leaders, like Horn, must rely on extra-biblical
prescriptions. Horn’s “techno-dimensional spiritual warfare” (that he dubbed,
“Militant Prayer”) correlates decisively with NAR apostle C. Peter Wagner’s
“strategic-level spiritual warfare” heresies (that he called “Warfare Prayer”). But
with Horn’s introduction of exotic new monsters – demonic, transhuman,
Nephilim, space alien-type creatures – suddenly spiritual warfare takes on a
potent new “dimension” going into quantum spirituality (see Part 6).114
41 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The ‘GASKET HEAVEN’ – A Satanic War Zone?
To further illustrate Tom Horn’s apparent Latter Rain roots, note his beliefs and
teachings about this unbiblical form of militant cosmic warfare prayer in his book
Spiritual Warfare: The Invisible Invasion—in
a chapter subtitled: “Invading Satan’s
Headquarters through Militant Prayer”:
Between the first heaven where the birds fly and
the third heaven “where dwells the throne room of
God” was a war zone called the second heaven.
This was the kosmos—the Hebrew equivalent of the
Persian Arhiman-abad—the place where Satan
abides as the prince of the power of the “air” (aer,
the lower air, circumambient), a sort of gasket
heaven, the domain of Satan encompassing the
surface of the earth. From here kosmokrators could
overshadow cities, intrude upon, and attempt to
influence the affairs and governments of men.
Exhibit: Horn’s 1998 book115
It was believed that the kosmos not only influenced earth’s governments and puppeted human
counterparts, but that Satan’s minions sought to close the heavens above the city so that God’s
blessing could not flow into it.
Later, it was believed that when saints bent their knees in prayer, they had to pray through
walls of opposition contained within this gasket heaven. The level of spiritual opposition to
the saints’ prayers depended on how far the city had fallen under Satan’s control. This
continues today. When our prayers leave our lips they go upward through the devil’s domain
to the throne of God. If Satan considers the prayers significant, he rises up to oppose them,
both going to and coming from the throne of God. Therefore, the second heaven is considered
a war zone for our prayer life and the residence of the power of the air. 116 [bold, underscore
added]

These false teachings are nowhere to be found in Scripture! Horn’s belief in a
“gasket heaven”— “the second heaven” that is considered “a war zone for our
prayer life” does NOT come from the Bible—but rather from pagan mythology
(see Part 7). The idea that Satan has the ability to rise up and oppose prayer “both
going to and coming from the throne of God” is patently heretical. Satan is NOT

42 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
God and he does not have the power to intercept prayer, nor do his evil
emissaries.
Pastor Anton Bosch, in a brief informal critique of these Horn assertions, pointed
out that:

Kosmos is not a Hebrew word, it is Greek and it refers primarily to the world and its
systems, as in “love not the world,” also in John 3:16;

There is not a single Scripture that says that Satan lives in the second heaven. All the
biblical references are to Satan on the earth or before God;

All this is based on Daniel, which does not say where the prince of Persia was; and

Clearly Horn teaches a different god than the God of the Bible who is present with us
and who hears our prayers without interference – this god of Horn’s is an idol who is
located in a single place and who is not omnipotent nor omniscient.117

All of this spiritual warfare rhetoric obviously has Dominionist implications. For
example, note the NAR-type militancy of Horn’s teachings on spiritual warfare on
page 288 of his book Forbidden Gates:
God has given the church what the U.S. government refused to give McArthur during the
Korean War: the power to move beyond the protective bridges of our enemy’s stronghold.
God allows the contrite believer to invade the opponent’s headquarters through the power of
prayer, to identify and bind the ruling prince through the authority of Jesus’ name, and to
permanently destroy the fortress wall of nefarious warlords; or, as the military would say, “to
offer them no quarter.” 118 [bold added]

Believers can be assured that God alone is omnipresent, omniscient, and
omnipotent. He hears the cries and petitions of His people (see Prov. 15:29; Jn.
9:31; Ps. 34:15-18; 66:16-20; 145:18-19; Jas. 5:16; Matt. 6:8-9).
“The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry.
The face of the LORD is against them that do evil…
The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth,
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit (Psalm 35:15-18).”

L. A. Marzulli will be speaking: “Exploring the meaning and relevance of two myths and their relevance in this time

prophecy of the return of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent-god of the Aztecs. [bold added here] We will be
examining correlations between these two in light of our contemporary times.” 119

An unsettling illustration of these unbiblical prayer warfare strategies unfolded
during the months prior to the hysterical countdown to the failed 2012 Mayan
doomsday prophecies, which Herescope documented in detail, including in the
article “12-21-12: Evangelical Christians Believing Mayan Prophecies.” 120 Tom
Horn even included a lengthy and grisly fictional account of this “returning god” in
his “nonfictional” Nephilim Stargates: The Return of the Watchers and the Year
2012, a manipulative, yet clever literary tactic of his (see Part 5). 121
L.A. Marzulli, cited earlier as a PPP adherent with Latter Rain roots, 122 posted a 5minute video on his blog in August 2012, appealing for funds ($12,000) from his
flock,123 so that he could travel with his entourage to the Mayan Pyramids in
Chichen Itza, Mexico on December 21, 2012 (the Winter Solstice) 124 —in order to
do battle with the pagan god Quetzalcoatl who was expected to manifest on that
date—“sort of like Elijah against the prophets of Baal.”125 Calling Chichen Itza a
“power place,” “ground zero,” and “the belly of the beast” with regard to its
“open portals” of demonic activity, Marzulli enlisted the company of Russ Dizdar
(author of The Black Awakening: Rise of the Satanic Super Soldier cited in Part
2),126 Richard Grund (Director/Team Leader the Supernatural Response Team
(SRT),127 Larry Barrett, and Watchers videographer, Richard Shaw, to document
the event.
44 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The team, according to Marzulli, was needed to
“assist in the spiritual warfare we expect to
happen there…”128 Marzulli went on to explain his
intended warfare:
This is an amazing opportunity to represent the kingdom
of God—to stand in the way of or possibly to confront
what may manifest there on December 21st—the socalled return of the Mayan god, Quetzalcoatl… We feel
that something is going to happen there. Hopefully,
nothing will happen there. If it does, we’re going to
engage in warfare and shut this thing down.129 [bold
added]
Exhibit: artist’s depiction of pagan god Quetzalcoatl 130

Although he initially assured potential Chichen Itza donors that God was leading
the effort to send out this spiritual warfare team, just days before he was set to
fly into “the belly of beast,” Marzulli abruptly aborted the mission. In a December
14 notice on his website, entitled “A Redirect from the Captain of the Hosts,”
Marzulli reported that his daughter had been given a disturbing “prophetic
dream” that revealed his kidnapping and murder by Mexican cartels. “She awoke
from her dream and was greatly disturbed. She prayed and went back to sleep.
Then another dream occurred. In it she saw a burst of light followed by a voice
that instructed, Don’t go!”131
Marzulli and his PPP spiritual warfare team never made it to the Mayan Pyramids.
The $14,000 raised by his flock was lost to Power Places Tours, 132 not to mention
the loss of biblical discernment for all those involved with this ungodly endeavor.
While it may seem quite bizarre that an evangelical prophecy leader would
actually believe in a literal, physical return of an ancient mythological creature –
to the extent that he and his friends intended to go and actually CONFRONT this
pagan deity (see Part 7) – this is not strange thinking in the NAR. For example,
many of the “prophets” and “apostles” who lead the NAR were engaged in a
similarly strange spiritual warfare133 over the past few years with the ancient
pagan deity Baal, especially by participating in rituals of America “divorcing Baal
(see Jer. 10:2-5; Rev. 9:20; Ezek. 14:3-6).”134
45 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Doing Supernatural Battle with Shofars
The New Apostolic Reformation teaches the heresy “that Jesus Christ did not
defeat Satan at the Cross, but rather the Church must accomplish this for Him on
earth.”135 The NAR believes that “the Church must do the work in defeating Satan
on earth.”136 This heresy assumes that Jesus’s shed blood was insufficient and
that the Church on earth must therefore finish Satan off via spiritual warfare, and
conducting cultural social and global transformation – especially via Dominion. As
a result, the focus of the church switches over to doing constant spiritual warfare
battle against Satan and his minions wherever and whatever the NAR teachers
claim they may be. Most of the Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm leaders also seem
to believe this heresy. It is therefore not surprising to learn that L.A. Marzulli
wrote the Foreword to and promoted a 300-page book, The Supernatural Battle:
A Field Manual, written by his associate, Richard Grund. 137 Here is a snippet of the
book according to Grund’s website:
We are engaged in a supernatural battle raging for thousands of years on a cluttered,
uneven battlefield against a merciless enemy. A Divine decree declared that there would be
a perpetual enmity between the two sides. Although defeated on a hill in Jerusalem almost
2,000 years ago this supernatural enemy refuses to surrender. An army was left behind to
keep that enemy in subjection when the King returned to His Throne. Their efforts began in
earnest but through overconfidence and poor leadership has waned. Ground once taken
has been lost and enemy strongholds were rebuilt. The final campaign in this supernatural
battle for the fate of mankind began in 1948. Plundered, broken and embarrassed by their
defeat this supernatural enemy is enraged and fights with reckless abandon. Blitzkrieg has
been declared to initiate the final devastating assault against the King’s people. A battle
cry goes out in the spirit with the clarion warfare call of the Shofar. Who in the Kingdom
will answer this call? Who will step out on to the supernatural battlefield? If you are one of
those who will say “here I am, send me” this book is a field manual for The Supernatural
Battle138 [bold and underscore added]

The NAR and many prophecy leaders do not believe a literal Colossians 2:15, that
our risen Saviour, Jesus Christ, “having spoiled principalities and powers, He made
a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it (see Hebrews 9:26-28).”

46 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Grund’s book with a Foreword by Marzulli 139

In Richard Grund’s book synopsis, he says that God’s troops are being summoned
to the “supernatural battlefield” in this hour: “a battle cry goes out in the spirit
with the clarion warfare call of the Shofar.” Again, notice the similarities of the
PPP doctrines to that of the NAR – the overlapping language, collaborations, and
hyper warfare prayer practices they have in common.
While there is a rich symbolism regarding the Shofar (ram’s horn) in the Bible, the
NAR apostles have taken it to literal extremes in their hyper-spiritual warfare
practices—sanctioning its blast as a weapon in the spiritual warfare arsenal. Here
is an example from a Dominionist article titled “BLOWING THE SHOFAR - A
SPIRITUAL WEAPON WITH UNLIMITED POWER”:
We believe at Kingdom Builders Christian Ministries, that God has given us a revelation that we
wish to share with the Body of Christ. We believe this will add a new dimension to your
intercessory prayer and spiritual warfare. The Lord has revealed the spiritual dynamics of the
use of the SHOFAR or Ram's Horn as used by the Israelites in the Old Testament times… we
don't fully understand the power of it, why or how it works - but ... IT WORKS!140 [bold added]

The article goes on to claim that the reason Gideon’s army won the battle was
because “the 300 blew their SHOFARS in unity,” and also claims that Joshua “won

47 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
the war by blowing the SHOFAR.” The authors assert that blowing the shofar has
supernatural power to bring about “an open heaven” or portal:
Over our meetings, over our buildings and over our cities, there is opposition in the heavenlies.
We believe that blowing the SHOFAR during prayer, intercession and worship times causes
disturbance and confusion to the spirit realm above us, thus dispersing the opposition and
bringing about an open heaven for the glory, power and presence of God to fall. 141 [bold
added]

The NAR’s media outlet, TheElijahList, published the NAR's belief that “the breath
of God is released as the shofar is blown.” Critiquing this practice, The Berean
Call, remarked:
Mr. Yount teaches that blowing the shofar operates according to scientific and spiritual ‘laws’
so that the physical properties of sound has a profound heavenly impact, which in turn releases
favor and God's "breath" upon the earth. In contrast to Scripture or early church practice, no
such tools or methods are taught in God's Word. 142

Nonetheless, this futile practice is growing among hyper-spiritual warfare camps.
Lou Engle, NAR founder of TheCall, continues to fill stadiums with young people—
thousands of them blowing the Shofar—in a tragically misguided attempt to
transform the world.143
The idea that these Shofar blasts or
other sounds have the power to
exact changes in the spirit realm is a
deep deception. Gideon and Joshua
were not victorious because of the
Shofar, but because of their faith—
which manifested itself in obedience
to God (Heb. 11: 30, 32-33). The
Lord used them to “wield His sword
of judgment” against the enemies of
Exhibit: TheCall youth blasting shofars on 7-7-07144

Israel (Jud. 7:18, 20) in the Old Testament. God’s plan was already won! Neither
God nor His Word has changed. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself will be coming again
in judgment—not the Latter Rain NAR church—and He (NOT His church!) will have
“a two-edged sword” coming out of His mouth (Rev. 1:16; 2:12) and He alone will

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
slay the Man of Sin with the “breath of his mouth” (2 Thess. 2:8). Billions of Shofar
blasts by spiritual warriors on earth will never alter this truth (See Heb. 4:12; 1
Thess. 1:5).

Wresting Authority from the Captain of the Hosts
Additional commentary about this “supernatural war” by Richard Grund again
reveals the extent to which these PPP teachers are basing their emerging
eschatological ideology on the NAR’s entire faulty premise of “spiritual warfare”:
Anyone who has suddenly awakened to the need for spiritual warfare will find the information
in this book new, challenging and inspiring. If your spiritual eyes are opening to the dark
spiritual clouds building overhead you will know something is different about this impending
storm. Knowing that there is a problem should lead to wanting to know what the solution is.
For too long many who sit in pews every Sunday have ignored the supernatural war raging all
around them. The world has changed. The deep darkness talked about in Isaiah 60 is creeping
over the land and a deeper darkness over (and into) the people. That darkness can only mean
one thing – we are at the time of the end and the powers of darkness are making their final
move against the Kingdom of Heaven. In accordance with the prophecy in Isaiah 60 it’s our time
to take a stand and shine the Light of the Lord into, and against, that darkness. Although
defeated on Calvary the powers of darkness have refused to submit and must be brought into
submission by those delegated with the authority to do so – the church of the Living God.145
[bold added]

Like Tom Horn’s denial of the sufficiency of the Word of God in order to inculcate
believers in his cosmic militant warfare, Grund denies the sufficiency of Christ’s
finished work to defeat “the powers of darkness.” Parroting Latter Rain and NAR
heresy, Grund says that the Church—not Christ—has been delegated with the
authority to bring these dark powers under submission. In the context of the PPP
false doctrine, this would include battling the Nephilim, pagan deities, extraterrestrials, transhumanist chimeras, alien super soldiers, black-eyed space aliens,
and even demons! L.A. Marzulli’s Foreword to Grund’s book reiterates his own
belief that the church must engage in supernatural warfare:
Richard Grund has written what I would consider a must read for any serious student of
Biblical, spiritual warfare. The book not only will equip the reader with the tools that are
needed to fight the war that all Christians are called to, but will provided real life cases, where
Richard deals with demonic, supernatural manifestations… drawing on decades of personal
experience in dealing with the occult, the demonic, fallen angels and full blown possession, to
give us a cogent overview of what the ongoing heavenly war that both he and I believe is
49 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
ramping up for the final battle, which the Bible refers to as the last days or Armageddon…
Learn how to walk in the full armor of God and know that all of us have the authority in Him
who first loved us, to destroy the works of the Fallen One, the devil. Bravo Richard, well done
brother! ~ L.A. Marzulli 146 [bold added]

Note: Christians were NOT given the authority “to destroy the works of the Fallen
One, the devil.” That authority belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ ALONE. The
Apostle John reminds us that “…the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this
purpose the Son of God was manifested, that HE might destroy the works of the
devil” (1 Jn. 3:8). The Son of God won our victory at the Cross. We put our trust in
Him. We pray to Him. We walk in Him. We rest in Him. The Lord Jesus Christ is our
Protector. “I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in
him will I trust (Ps. 91:2).”

Astral Combat – Closing Trans-Dimensional Portals
Much of this “spiritual warfare” material in the emerging Postmodern Prophecy
Paradigm movement is disturbing, sinister, and most obviously comes directly out
of the occult and New Age. It is difficult to study this darkly ominous material
because so much of it steeped in the imagery of the demonic (see Part 7).
Nevertheless, these teachers are rapidly gaining in popularity, even among socalled “conservative” evangelicals. There appears to be a vast and growing
desensitization going on, searing the tender consciences of sincere believers who
end up accepting a mythology-infused, foreboding end time that has no joy,
peace, or light (see: 1 Tim. 4:1-2).
A case in point is another Marzulli compatriot, Russ Dizdar, who also aborted his
2012 “spiritual warfare” mission to the Mayan Pyramids of Chichen Itza.
Dizdar is an author who promotes these same hyper-spiritual warfare
methodologies (see Part 2). His website is devoted to these teachings, and he
even offers an online study course. 147 Dizdar and Marzulli were both scheduled to
report on their Mayan Pyramids trip at the 2013 Future Congress (FC2)
conference in Dallas. Here is Dizdar’s proposed presentation synopsis that was
posted on the FC2 website before their plans so abruptly changed. Note its
extreme occult influences:
1. GATEWAYS OF DEMONIC MANIFESTATION; past present and the emerging future. How
Chichen Itza and other ancient satanic ritual sites operated, embedded

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
demonic/nephilim-civilization [sic]. How the re-opening of these ancient sites are by
design, are empowered by demonic synchronicity and how they will contribute to the
end time luciferic globalism (the new order). Back from his December 2012 visit of
Chichen Itza, Russ will share news from that site where over 100, 000 people have come
to open the doors to the beckoning dark spirits. Russ will share information from the
night in the main temple on solstice December 21st where new gateways opened
and…did new levels of demonic agenda emerge?
2. OBJECTS AND WEAPONIZATION OF DEMONIC POWER: Past present and in the
emerging future. How objects can be demonized and used to influence, deceive or
harm others. How demonic presence and power are attached to physical objects. What
are and why ‘objects and demonic presence can be used for global seduction, control
and spiritually empowered war. Russ will seek to answer the question…are the ‘crystal
skulls’ precursors to the image of the beast?

3. HIDDEN AGENDA HIDDEN STATISTICS BUT NOT FOR LONG: There is a real emerging
conspiracy, its [sic] by design, it has supra human power and its emerging before our
very eyes. Its call [sic] a ‘MUSTERION’ and most of it is cloaked in supernatural and
physical super secrecy. How the future is present among us and preparing to unleash.
Russ will look at the satanic agenda exposed by Biblical Prophecy, the statistics of
satanic rituals (500 million plus) what are for [sic] and the stats on the coming troops of
antichrist (40 million worldwide). Russ will seek to answer…are ‘they’ among us right
now148. [bold added]

Note the emphatic unholy emphasis on satanic themes in Dizdar's comments.
All of these teachings are foreign to the Bible. This is because the Bible is not
the source of the PPP's cosmic warfare doctrines—including the teaching that
hyper-dimensional beings (the Nephilim, extra-terrestrials, pagan gods, and
transhuman monsters) have the ability to open “portals,” “gateways,” or
“dimensional doorways”—that must be closed by prayer combat techniques.
Both the NAR and the occult world teach that certain geographical sites
possess spiritual power.149 The end-time teaching that Christians have a fearful
future, and must engage the demonic powers of Antichrist is very disturbing.
We know that days of tribulation lie ahead, but the Lord in His Word has
exhorted us—not to look deeper into the darkest recesses of luciferin
shenanigans and try to glean ways to combat them—but rather joyfully and
with great anticipation “look up… for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke
21:28).”

51 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Heiser’s The Divine Council 150

But according to these PPP leaders, Christ gave the authority and responsibility
to us to conquer, defeat, and reclaim full dominion from the sinister forces of
the dark realm. This false teaching is directly connected to another PPP
teaching: The Divine Council.151 Not only is Christ’s sovereignty diminished in
this heresy, but it is actually ascribed to Satan and his minions! These
particular leaders say that God actually gave His authority over the earth to
the pagan gods (“divine council”) after the Tower of Babel! This dark cabal
includes demons, pagan deities, extraterrestrials (space aliens), the Nephilim,
the Watchers, and the like. Note the striking parallel to the NAR dominionists
whose heretical teachings replace the Lord Jesus Christ with His Bride—saying
that Christ’s Church will gain earthly dominion, instead of waiting for King
Jesus to return and set up His kingdom. In this case, the PPP leaders believe
the Church must wrest dominion from the devilish realm utilizing PPP TechnoDimensional Prayer Combat.152
Of course, Christians must go to these leaders in order to be armed and ready
for this spiritual war campaign, which inevitably costs money. The Bible is
completely silent about such intricate and elaborate warfare prayer
prescriptions and preparations. But the PPP leaders gain adherents because
they claim to possess the secrets, the hidden codes, unlocking ancient
mysteries, and interpreting antiquated pagan myths. Others, such as NAR
leaders, claim to possess superior spiritual powers to engage in these battles
with demonic forces.
The PPP advocates continue to spread these false teachings throughout the
country. Among the numerous scheduled events, Marzulli, Dizdar, and Grund
52 | P a g e

were presenters at the “Nephilim Mounds” conference near Newark, OH in
2013, promoting Nephilim False Eschatology.153 Marzulli and Dizdar also
appeared in Knoxville, KY in June of that year with NAR apostle Randy
DeMain154 for the “Nephilim Agenda 2 Conference.” Marzulli was promoting
his book On the Trail of the Nephilim. 155

Exhibit: DeMain (NAR) & Marzulli (PPP) together again in 2015156

Dizdar also headlined with Marzulli at the November 2012 “Chicago Summit
#2” conference, entitled: “At the Tip of the End of History – Are You Ready?”157
The conference flier described the Militant Prayer emphasis of the event,
including “ritual and astral spiritual warfare”:

Deeper aspects of end of days spiritual deception and aspects of spiritual warfare

How to do deliverance, how to do Spirit led prayer mapping

Learning about ritual and astral spiritual warfare...

Spiritual discernment for teens and aspects of spiritual warfare for young people

What do “prayer mapping,”159 “ritual and astral spiritual warfare,” and “spiritual
analysis tests” have to do with simple, sincere, and Spirit-directed prayer?
Answer: nothing. These are the same heretical excesses that entangle and distract

followers of the NAR apostles. Of course, ASTRAL 160 activities can be found in the
New Age and satanic writings, and this is one of the most alarming examples of
the obvious carry-over between New Age and New Apostolic Reformation
teachings.

The Fourth Dimensional DNA War
DNA plays a big part of their coming cosmic
battle. Human DNA. Corrupted human DNA. LA
Marzulli and Dizdar joined up in April 2013 to
take part in the Chicago Summit #3 conference
to talk about “DNA and the Physics of God: The
Design, the Corruption, and the Future of
Human DNA.” Other speakers included a
popular cast of PPP prophecy mongers: Doug
Woodward, Rob Skiba, Derek & Sharon Gilbert,
and Doug Hamp.161
Exhibit: Dizdar’s Workbook for Physics of God Summit162

The subject of human DNA corruption by fallen angels resulting in Nephilim
hybrids is intricately linked to the entire end-time Techno-Dimensional Combat
scenario. It was also addressed by Christian speaker, author, and PPP adherent
Paul McGuire163 in a 2013 NewsWithViews article entitled, “Lucifer, Nephilim and
the Fourth Dimensional DNA War.” In the excerpt below, note McGuire’s
repeated reference to “the Fourth Dimension”—a New Age philosophy adopted
by David (Paul) Yonggi Cho—author of the heretical book The Fourth Dimension
published in 1979.164 McGuire also connects the idea of a Fourth Dimension to the
Nephilim in a preposterous New Age scenario that involves, ominously, corrupted
human DNA:

54 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Yonggi Cho’s mystical 1979 book165
Going back to the highly advanced civilizations before the Flood, beings descended upon the
Earth from the Fourth Dimension to have sexual relations with human women, which
produced the hybrid race of the Nephilim. Human beings, who originally inhabited planet Earth
as it was intended, were immortal and lived in Paradise. They were created from the substance
of the Earth based on original-source programming which was imbedded in their DNA by the
Infinite Personal Living God the Universe.
However, the first man and woman chose to shatter their perfect world. Then they allowed
their DNA code to be deconstructed by Fourth Dimensional energies and began to experience
a brand new reality… death. Additionally, they opened a portal into the Fourth Dimension
which allowed the sons of God to enter the physical world. These sons of God, the B’nai Elohim,
began mating with human women and producing a race of god men called the Nephilim. This
interbreeding re-programmed the DNA code of Mankind and a kind of DNA War began. The
cosmic war between God and Lucifer that started in the Fourth Dimension was now being
fought on Earth. The Flood of Noah was a pre-emptive strike by God to destroy the
reprogrammed DNA code. But the sons of God returned to the Earth and the sexual relations
with human women began again, bringing the return of the Nephilim, who currently walk
among us, and the DNA war continues.166 [bold added]

“Wherefore, as by one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death
passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Rom. 5:12)”

55 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
This “Fourth Dimensional DNA” teaching is
totally foreign to the Word of God. It actually
belongs to the New Age realm of Quantum
Mysticism.167 The occult concept of a “fourth
dimension” is defined as an “astral plane”
where one can access the realms of the
paranormal and do “astral travel”!168
Note that the word “sin” does not appear in
McGuire’s teaching on Adam and Eve. Instead,
he says that our first parents “opened a portal”
for unseen cosmic warriors to invade the earth
when their DNA was “re-programmed” by the
“interbreeding” that went on with “Fourth
Exhibit: McGuire’s 2014 book169

Dimensional” beings. This is pure heresy. These ideas not only sound like a
Hollywood sci-fi script, but destroy the foundation of the Gospel of salvation
(Rom. 5:12-14).
McGuire offers more clues to how mortal believers engage the unseen forces in
this “Fourth Dimensional war” in a NewWithViews article about “cosmic warfare”
entitled, “The Future of America: Cosmic Warfare, Parallel Universes, and the
Matrix.” As you read these excerpts note the urgent, militant, and mystical tone.
Note its focus on spiritual “forces” and “energies,” and its many parallels to the
mystical “Quantum Spirituality”170 taught by many New Age and NAR leaders:

Everything we see in our nation and world is the product of information from an
invisible realm or parallel universe. What happens in the invisible realm produces,
whether good or bad, the reality we see… when you look closely at the top of the
Luciferian pyramid you see that it extends way beyond the present dimension in which
we live into the invisible realm or parallel universe.

If you don’t like what you see in reality, then you must learn how to enter this invisible
realm and access what some call the “Keys of the Kingdom.” These keys are spiritual
mechanisms for changing reality. They are also referred to as spiritual weapons. They
are the fastest, most efficient and powerful way to release power into the earth that
can change reality!

56 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Think of the keys as a way to release the most powerful force in the universe into our
reality. Currently, our world is filled with chaos and upheaval. There appears to be an
opposing force at work that is composed of Luciferian energy. Through Bible prophecy
we know what the great plan is and what this force intends to do with humanity and the
world.

…Jesus Christ clearly taught “Occupy until I come.”

…see the massive supernatural armies of the Lord. Jesus Christ taught all those who
follow His teachings how to use the supernatural keys of the kingdom which can
change reality in the physical realm. This is no peripheral issue with Christ… it is central.
He has restored both authority and dominion to those who are synchronized with His
Word.

Mankind throughout history has used science and technology to harness power… Many
of the men like Einstein, Tesla and Edison did not come up with inventions and sources
of power… [I]f you read about their lives you will see that all of these men had to
develop methodologies that allowed them to access information supernaturally from
another dimension. It is possible to access on a personal level, a societal level, and a
global level the most powerful force in the Universe. It is not until men and women
begin to learn how to access and direct that power that there can be change on a
national, global and cosmic level. All of this works within the framework of the
prophetic plan of God, for that is one of the laws regarding its use.171 [bold added]

The Bible does not direct believers to “access information supernaturally from
another dimension” in order to “access” the “Keys of the Kingdom” so that they
can “change reality in the physical realm”—or to take control over foreboding
forces penetrating hyper-dimensional portals. Shamans have attempted to do
these things for centuries—unholy underworld activities that are forbidden to
Christians (Deut. 18:10; Rev. 9:21). This description of “powerful forces” reminds
one of Daniel’s description of the Antichrist's “god of forces” (Dan. 11:38). It
sounds like “the Force” of Star Wars!
Besides appearing to be the writing of some sort of an occult manual for witches,
shamans, or sorcerers, McGuire wrests Jesus’ words, “Occupy until I come,” out of
context and meaning. Luke 19:13 actually reads, “And he [the Lord Jesus] called
his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, ‘Occupy till
I come’ [KJV].” Or, as the NASB reads, “'Do business with this until I come back.'”
In the context of this passage, the Lord Jesus was giving the disciples a parable
because they thought that He was going to set up His Kingdom immediately. Jesus
57 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
was simply saying to them that He was going to have to go away first, but that He
would return at a later time. In His absence, the Lord expected His servants to
“occupy”—that is—to “carry on business” as good stewards of the resources He
left them—until He came back. There is NO mention here of “cosmic warfare” or
wielding “powerful forces,” or other such things. Nevertheless, this verse is a
popular one in the NAR, and used to further the doctrines of Dominionism.
Despite these—and other unbiblical teachings—McGuire has shockingly gained an
acceptance among other evangelicals. He was a featured speaker at the Red River
Valley Bible and Prophecy Conference in Fargo-Moorhead in 2013, alongside Eric
Barger, Carl Teichrib, and Mike Hoggard, and again in 2015 with Joe Schimmel,
Roger Oakland, & Mike Hoggard, and in 2016 with Carl Teichrib, Chris Pinto, &
Mike Hoggard.172
McGuire also joined the speaking platform at the 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 Pike’s
Peak Prophecy Summit in Colorado Springs, CO with several Postmodern
Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) adherents, including the usual suspects: Tom Horn,
Chuck Missler, Cris Putnam, L.A. Marzulli, Gary Stearman, Jonathan Cahn, Joseph
Farah, Douglas Woodward, Derek & Sharon Gilbert, Rob Skiba, et al.173
He was also featured at the 2014 Orlando Summit which boasted a massive cast
of PPP teachers. Note the presentation themes of this popular event:
2,000 excited prophecy lovers jammed into the Renaissance Seaworld Hotel in Orlando, Florida
from March 28-30, 2014 to hear 24 of the leading voices in Bible prophecy share 63
phenomenal messages, interviews and Q & A’s. Subjects listed below include the rapture; the
Nephilim; the battle for the Land of Israel; UFOs; the Illuminati; end-times financial planning;
spiritual warfare; DNA and transhumanism; the Shroud of Turin; the secrets of the Hebrew
alphabet; the pre-Adamic earth; and the ancient secrets of the planet Mars. 174 [bold added]

McGuire has also been a professor at Jack Hayford’s King’s College and
Seminary.175
Through the multi-faceted works of these notable leaders, and many more, this
PPP deception continues to grow exponentially. And with the emerging
convergence with the NAR, there is evidence that this cosmic militant warfare
rhetoric will increase.

What the Bible Says About Spiritual Warfare
THE TRUTH:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high [places].
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of
righteousness; And your feet shod with
the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able
to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and
supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto
with all perseverance and supplication for all saints (Eph. 6:10-18).” [bold added]

Exhibit: The Word of God is a Christian’s armor and defense 176
59 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
It is important to first know the truth from the Word of God and how it instructs
Christians to fight against the world, the flesh and the devil. In a previous article,
“Militant Prayer: Taking Dominion over Dark Angels,” 177 we explained the true
spiritual “battle” faced by believers according to Scripture:
What is the truth? The Bible does teach us about spiritual warfare, but not as [C. Peter]
Wagner, [Cindy] Jacobs, [Lou] Engle, [Ed] Silvoso, [Mike] Bickle, and [Tom] Horn do. They base
many of their false doctrines on their fanciful interpretations of Ephesians 6:10-17. Ephesians
6:12 says "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." This
passage does teach about how to war with Satan and his demons, but it pertains to our ongoing
battle against the temptations to sin. This passage does not instruct Christians in “strategiclevel” or “techno-dimensional” warfare; it teaches us to rely upon the Lord in our daily walk
with Him.
“The armor of God” in verses 13-17 is a picture of God’s Word lived out. We are able to “put
on/take up the full armor (given by God)” and to “stand firm” in “resisting the devil’s
schemes” in God’s strength and might, not our own (vs. 10-14). The sword is not primarily an
offensive weapon. The sword (in both the natural and spiritual) is primarily a defensive weapon.
Watch people who fence. They spend 95% of their time parrying or deflecting the blows of the
opponent and only the occasional lunge is an attack. Notice at how Jesus used the Word
against Satan during His temptation in the wilderness. Jesus never went over to the attack.
He simply defended the Truth by saying “it is written.” The Bible is only used in an "offensive"
way to preach the Gospel and the Truth, which is primarily a defensive, an apologetic act.
The entire weapon system of the believer described in Ephesians 6 is defensive. This goes to
the heart of the issue. We are not equipped to take the battle to the devil. But he will bring
the battle to us. Three times in this passage it is emphasized that we need the weapons in
order to STAND - not to attack, retreat or pursue, but to stand (verses 11, 13, 14). A fourth
time Paul uses the word "withstand" (vs. 13). It is abundantly clear that Ephesians 6 teaches us
to stand on the victory already gained and completed at the cross (Col. 2:15: “And having
spoiled principalities and powers, He [Jesus Christ] made a shew of them openly, triumphing
over them in it”). The battle is not about gaining new ground, and we are not taught to go in
pursuit of the devil. We have the victory—it was gained by Jesus at the cross. Satan wants to
rob and kill and destroy us (John 10:10). But all we have to do is take on the whole armor and
stand.
A careful examination of 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, which is also frequently cited to justify this
hyper-spiritual warfare, will reveal that “strongholds” (fortresses) are “speculations” and
“thoughts” that come against God’s Truth and which lead us into disobedience and sin. We
“destroy” these by knowing God’s Word, and obeying it through the power of the indwelling
Spirit of God, not by exercising authority over demons. This “taking on the devil” mentality via
60 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Strategic Level (Warfare Prayer) and Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare (Militant Prayer)
negates the Lord’s sovereignty. Furthermore, when Satan and his emissaries are blamed for all
ills plaguing a fallen world and mankind— “the devil/demons made me do it”—there is a
profound diminishing of the Gospel message of Salvation. 178 [bold added]

Mike Oppenheimer of Let Us Reason ministry wrote an insightful article on this
false Latter Rain doctrine in 2009 called, “Do We Have ALL Authority?” In it, he
pointed to the inherent pride resident in those seeking the authority and power
that belongs to Christ:
The Apostles never taught or practiced things that we hear of today. Furthermore God never
put in His word of our taking authority over the spiritual realm, binding devils over cities, or
even Satan. Scripture teaches that there were demons so powerful that the Apostles could not
cast them out. Paul an apostle was unable to heal all—even he suffered with an affliction.
Certainly they did not have all authority. They had to sometimes ask in prayer, not take
authority by prayer. Humility is what Christ taught and true humility means to rely on someone
who is greater, real humility is to know your position and enjoy it.179 [bold added]

He adds a chilling warning for those caught up in such aberrant spiritual warfare
techniques:
He [the Antichrist] was able to deceive by his authority (power). If you wonder whom the
Christians are that Jesus warned about the deception in the end, it will be the ones who look
for authority, power in miracles and signs as the proof that something is of God. 180 [bold
added]

Oppenheimer concludes his insightful analysis of true biblical authority—by
redirecting the focus back to the Lord Jesus Christ—and by underscoring the
believer’s role in serving Him:
It was only Jesus who was given all authority. Nowhere does it say we were given all authority
in the New Testament. Matt 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All
authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” So he tells the apostles and us “Go
therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of
the Son and of the Holy Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;
and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. The word for authority is
power. If one has all power they have all authority. It is not the church that has all authority,
we need to be under Jesus’ authority just as he was under the Father when he came as a
servant. Leadership in the church is about being a servant. Only Jesus can have all authority for
the simple reason he is sinless and can rule perfectly, the church is not sinless and can never be
trusted with all authority. Yes we as the church have some authority, but not all authority...181

the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar

emerging eschatology scenarios, the ancient god Apollo (a.k.a. Apollyon, Osiris or
Nimrod) will resurrect from the dead, via satanic genetic tampering, and morph
into the one-world dictator that the Bible calls the Antichrist. In this fanciful
scenario—based solely on extra-biblical illumination, occult lore and human
speculation—this “Man of Sin” will be much more than a mere man energized by

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Satan. He will be the king of the Nephilim (ancient “Nimrod”): part man, part devil
(the literal offspring of Satan).
A plain reading of Scripture records that “Cush begat Nimrod.” (Gen. 10:8;
repeated in 1 Chron. 1:10.) No frills, no embellishments, just a simple statement
of fact: Nimrod was the literal descendent of Cush; the grandson of Ham and the
great-grandson of Noah. He was a man, NOT a Nephilim, nor a pagan god. 183 He
was certainly NOT a pagan god that will resurrect from the grave in the last days
in order to become the Antichrist. The Bible speaks nothing about this scenario.
Nonetheless, this dark myth is currently being perpetrated on unsuspecting
Christians by many PPP leaders.
In order to establish the claim that the mythological god Apollo will rise again
(which requires the presuppositions that Apollo was also the man Nimrod who
also had to be a Nephilim), the PPP teachers borrow heavily from some of the
blackest Satanic sources including The Egyptian
Book of the Dead, the psychic Edgar Cayce, the
occultist Manly Hall, leading Theosophist
(Anthroposophist) Rudolf Steiner, Freemasonry,
ancient myths from heathen idolatry (see Part 7),
astrology, and non-Canonical, Gnostic and
apocryphal sources. Rejecting these occult
teachings outright should be a no-brainer! But the
fact is that these PPP leaders are very popular, and
very few, if any, evangelical leaders are raising the
necessary serious questions.

The Reincarnation of Nimrod?
To repeat—these sensationally seductive ideas do not come from the Word of
God, but from troublesome outside sources that are tragically gaining popularity
in recent times—within the evangelical church. A vivid example of these
falsehoods pertaining to ancient Nimrod comes from PPP adherent and author,
Rob Skiba. The inspiration for his fantastic speculations of Nimrod come from the
apocryphal book of Jasher, not the Bible.185 This Jasher-inspired story deviates far

64 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
from anything you’ve ever read in
Scripture. Yet note that Skiba states that
Genesis 25 doesn't make any sense
without it:
In the context of the Jasher account, that story
makes a whole lot more now sense [sic] doesn't
it? I mean think about it. Without Jasher, the
story in Genesis 25 makes no sense at all.... After
reading Jasher, you now completely understand
what is going on and why. Esau had just killed the
king of the world!
Exhibit: The Apocryphal Book of Jasher186
By the way, the "valuable garments" that Nimrod had, "with which he prevailed over the
whole land" were the original garments God made for Adam and Eve back in the garden... so
here Esau has chopped off Nimrod's head and stolen his "magic garments." The rest of
Nimrod's "mighty men" were after him now. Esau came home famished from a very busy day!
So, when Jacob says he wants his birthright, Esau basically said, "Look. What do I care about my
birthright? I just killed King Nimrod! I'm a dead man. His warriors are probably coming for me
as we speak. Just give me something to eat!" Esau was extremely vulnerable here and Jacob
totally took advantage of the situation for his own selfish gain...
The Fifth Trumpet blows, and the spirit of Apollyon (Apollo) ascends back into its former host
body - Nimrod. Thus, empowered by the dragon himself, the Anti-Christ will rise. And his first
order of business will be to kill the Two Witnesses! (p. 135, 258) 187 [bold added]

Note Skiba’s stunning conclusion: that Apollo will enter into the “host body” of
Nimrod and become the Antichrist!

who became a mighty warrior on earth (1 Chron. 1:10).” [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Horn’s 2009 book188

Tom Horn, a PPP leader with similarly outrageous heretical teachings, detailed his
own fantasy about Genesis 10—and revision of Nimrod’s origins—in a 2009 book
he wrote and published called, Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost Symbol Found and
the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed.189 Horn claims Nimrod is a “biblical”
example of a Nephilim “reincarnation” based on his theories about “Watchers”
“from nearby planets and/or dimensions” that invaded earth and engaged in
experiments resulting in a race of mutant offspring 190:
If indeed the activity of Watchers was the use of biotechnology to produce exotic bodies of
flesh for beings that have the ability under extraordinary circumstances to reincarnate after
physical death, would the method of their returning from the grave likewise be an advanced
form of science? I believe this could be the case, and the Bible may actually provide a record of
this occurring. The story is doubly important to our book because it centers around Nimrod,
the original character who later was mythologized as the god prophesied by the apostle Paul in
the New Testament and by the occult elite in the Great Seal of the United States as the ancient
spirit that will return to earth to rule the novus ordo seclorum—Apollo/Osiris.191 [bold
added]

Horn ties ancient Nimrod to the pagan god Apollo and explains his reincarnation
theory—a thoroughly New Age concept192 —by rewriting the Scripture. Note the
elaborate semantic gymnastics that Horn must resort to in order to make his case
that Nimrod “began to change genetically”:
Earlier we pointed out how Apollo is reanimated on earth in the end times when “the Beast”
ascends from the bottomless pit and goes “into perdition” (into Apolia, Apollo. See Revelation
66 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
17:8). The story of Nimrod (Gilgamesh/Apollo/Osiris) in the book of Genesis may illustrate how
this could happen through genetic influence or a retrovirus of demonic design that integrates
with a host’s genome and rewrites the living specimen’s DNA, thus making it a “fit extension”
for infection by the entity. Genesis 10:8 says about Nimrod: “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began
to be a mighty one in the earth.” Three sections in this unprecedented verse indicate something
very peculiar had happened to Nimrod. First, note where the text says, “he began to be.” In
Hebrew, this is chalal, which means “to become profaned, defiled, polluted, or desecrated
ritually, sexually or genetically.” Second, this verse tells us exactly what Nimrod began to be—
“a mighty one” (gibbowr, gibborim), one of the offspring of nephilim… And the third part of this
text says the change to Nimrod started while he was on “earth.” Therefore, in modern
language, this text could accurately be translated to say:
And Nimrod began to change genetically, becoming a gibborim, the offspring of watchers on
earth.193 [bold added]

By thus twisting Scripture, and with a hefty admixture of extra-biblical sources,
Horn has changed the humble origins of Nimrod to that of a genetic mutant
(Nephilim) spawned of demon DNA! This new doctrine, of course, is needed to
facilitate Nimrod’s “reanimation” (i.e., reincarnation) in the end time. Not one
recognized Bible translation translates Genesis 10:8 like Tom Horn has done:

KJV: “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.”

NKJV: “Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.”

NIV: “Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the
earth.”

NASB: “Now Cush became the father of Nimrod; he became a mighty one on
the earth.”

The Bible states simply and clearly that Nimrod was a human descendant of Cush
who became a powerful man. He was NOT a Nephilim, not a genetic mutant, and
he WAS NOT/IS NOT the reincarnation of the pagan deity, Apollo! Yet, this
repeated assertion does raise some disturbing questions about why it becomes so
necessary for the PPP to reinvent Nimrod. One possible answer may be that it
serves as the foundational doctrine in their revisionist end-time eschatology—an
eschatology which is far more occult than Christian. 194

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Apollo: The “Masonic ‘Messiah’”?
Horn continues his rewriting of Scripture by weaving his own fantasies into the
text, along with heavy doses of pagan mythology, Freemasonry, and other extrabiblical sources. He goes through great contortions to “prove” that Nimrod
morphed into the god Apollo—and will return as the Antichrist—even citing
hidden codes in the Great Seal of the United States as evidence. Notice Horn’s
unorthodox method of interpreting Scripture:
In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, repeat-coded in the Great Seal of the
United States as the Masonic “messiah” who returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit—
verified by the same name—that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World
Order. According to a key prophecy in the book of 2 Thessalonians, the Antichrist will be the
progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: “Let no
man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away
first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia, Apollyon, Apollo].”
Numerous scholarly and classical works identify “Apollyon” as the god “Apollo”—the Greek
deity “of death and pestilence,” and Webster’s Dictionary points out that “Apollyon” was a
common variant of “Apollo” until recent history… Accordingly, the name Apollo turns up in
ancient literature with the verb apollymi or apollyo (destroy), and scholars including W. R. F.
Browning believe the apostle Paul may have identified the god Apollo as the “spirit of
Antichrist” operating behind the persecuting Roman emperor, Domitian, who wanted to be
recognized as “Apollo incarnate” in his day.195 [bold added]

Horn not only embellishes the Scripture, but does so by putting false prophecies
in the mouth of the Apostle Paul. Paul was NOT “identifying the pagan god
Apollo” in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and was NOT recording a “key prophecy” saying
that the Antichrist “will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit,
Apollo.” Paul was simply using the Greek work for “perdition” (apoleia), which
means “destruction.” The “man of sin” will be the son of “destruction”
(perdition). There is no secret code language in operation here. But PPP leaders
love to rely on hidden biblical codes, of which they claim to have secret or expert
knowledge for interpretation.
In his book, Decoding Doomsday: The 2012 Prophecies, the Apocalypse, and the
Perilous Days Ahead, Doug Woodward, quoting Horn, asserts that the coming
Antichrist is not only going to be a resurrected “Apollo [Osiris/Nimrod],” but a
“Masonic Messiah” from America!196 He writes: “…let’s consider Tom Horn’s
worthy analysis. To break the code, apparently, we must return to The Great

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Seal—the “Trestle-Board” for the Great Work…”197 Horn couples the Great Seal’s
date of 1776 with the end date of the Mayan calendar to arrive at the year 2012,
the beginning of the Tribulation period.
Riding on the doomsday date set by leading New
Agers,198 and cinching Horn’s deductions, Woodward
continues describing their occult sources:
Horn’s attempts to strengthen his assertion that the Masonic
Messiah debuts during this 2012-2016 period, through an
elaborate analysis of the Freemasons’ 1st Degree Tracing
Board, (which is different than a trestle board...). Horn
contends that the astronomical positions of the sun, moon,
and the Pleiades… are as they will be in December 21, 2012.
At the Winter Solstice, the sun at its Zenith will be directly in
front of the seven (visible) stars of the Pleiades…199 [bold
added]
Exhibit: Woodward’s 2010 book200

Of course, none of these predictions for December 21, 2012 came about, but that
has not stopped PPP leaders from continuing to rely upon pagan astrology and
Freemasonry to source their subsequent false prophecies.

Apoleia = Apollo? Apolia=Apollo?
Fellow PPP advocate, Doug Hamp, agrees with Tom Horn and other PPP leaders
who teach these things about a reincarnated Apollo:
End times researcher Tom Horn reaches a similar conclusion [as Hamp, ed.] that the
Antichrist/Beast will be the progeny of the demonic realm based on his reading of 2
Thessalonians 2:3. “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the
falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition [apoleia],” (2
Thessalonians 2:3). He notes that Greek word apoleia (perdition) is the same root as
Apollyon/Apollo all of which mean “perdition” or “destruction.” Horn states:
Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, “Apollo.” Numerous
scholarly and classical works identify “Apollyon” as the god “Apollo”—the Greek deity “of death
and pestilence,” and Webster’s Dictionary points out that “Apollyon” was a common variant of
“Apollo” until recent history.

69 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Revelation 17:8 also ties the coming of Antichrist with Apollo, revealing that the ‘Beast’ shall
ascend from the bottomless pit and enter him. “The Beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and
shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition [Apolia, Apollo...]
Abaddon is another name for Apollo (Rev. 9:11), identified historically as the king of demonic
“locusts” (Revelation 9:1-11). This means among other things that Apollo is the end-times
angel or “King of the Abyss” that opens the bottomless pit, out of which an army of transgenic
locusts erupts upon earth.
Horn’s idea has tremendous merit and would appear to corroborate the evidence that we have
examined concerning Genesis 3:15. Thus, if the linguistic connection is correct, then the Holy
Spirit inspired Paul to confirm the Genesis 3:15 prophecy, thereby further substantiating that
the Antichrist/Beast will be a hybrid or the ultimate Nephilim.201 [bold added]

All of these linguistic gyrations result in the conclusion that the Antichrist will be
“the ultimate hybrid Nephilim”. Hamp’s opinion carries weight in PPP circles,
because he is a former assistant pastor for Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa, and is a
specialist in ancient languages.202
In sync with Hamp, and exercising the same flagrant eisegesis done to 2
Thessalonians 2 [perdition/Apoleia = Apollo] in his book Apollyon Rising 2012,
Tom Horn also relies on Revelation 17:8 (dealing with the Beast that rises from
the pit to go to perdition [Apolia=Apollo]) and Revelation 9:11 (that mentions the
angel/king of the bottomless pit [Apollyon/Abaddon = Apollo]) in an attempt to
further prove that the Bible “prophesies” the return of this mythological entity as
the biblical Antichrist (Nimrod/Osiris/Apollo).
“But,” you are probably protesting by now,
“Apollo was a mythological creature, not a real
being. How can a fictitious false god rise again?”
As an astute reader, you will also question how
this preposterous-sounding proposal could be
even remotely scriptural. You may be thinking,
“How can Satan have the power to generate a
resurrection? Satan can do nothing without God’s
permission! Doesn’t this claim impugn God’s
sovereignty? His omnipotence? His omniscience?”
Good questions! Read on…

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Apollo: Son of Zeus
These Apollo mutations require an extensive knowledge of ancient pagan
mythology (see Part 7), including the storied lineages of Greek and Roman gods
and goddesses. It has been said that the humanistic Greeks “made their gods in
their own image.”204 Likewise, the resurrection of these ancient myths and fables
puts the focus on man, not God Almighty. The ancient city of Athens in Greece
was filled with temples devoted to their Greek pantheon of gods and goddesses,
mythological deities. Notice that the Apostle Paul was utterly grieved by the
idolatry he saw in the city of Athens: “Now while Paul waited for them at Athens,
his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry” (Acts
17:16). Christians are therefore warned to “flee from idolatry” (1 Cor. 10:14).
Pagan myths are a form of idolatry that corrupt the truth when added to the
Scriptures (i.e., Prov. 25:25; Matt. 7:18; 2 Cor. 2:17; Gal. 5:20; Col. 3:5).
Nevertheless, Tom Horn even goes so far as to insert the ancient Greek god Zeus
into the book of Revelation:
In view of this text [Rev. 9:1-11], we recall how Zeus—the Greek identity for the father of
Apollo—was acknowledged as Satan in Revelation 2:12-13. The fallen angel, Apollo, who
unlocks the bottomless pit and unleashes the thunderous hoards [sic] of Great Tribulation
locusts, is therefore none other than the son of Satan and the spirit that will inhabit
Antichrist.205 [bold added]

Horn then issues a word of warning for those who deny that the Antichrist will be
a reincarnation of the pagan god Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod. His warning is based on
the secret coded Masonic prophecy said to be embedded in the Great Seal of the
United States:
Not to put too fine a point on it, but if the reader doubts the authority of the Scriptures cited
above concerning the coming of Apollo as Antichrist or the dedication of the occult hierarchy
to bring the prophecy on the Great Seal about, the “illuminated ones” have you right where
they want you.206 [bold added]

However, be aware that Revelation 22 contains its own serious warnings for
anyone who would dare to tamper with its words of end-time prophecy by adding
to them or taking away from them:
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man
shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
71 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take
away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are
written in this book (Rev. 22:18-19).” [bold, underscore added]

Despite this serious warning, Horn persistently mixes God’s Word with
speculation, pagan lore, and occult revelation—polluting the truth of God into an
outright lie. The Bible DOES NOT teach “the coming of Apollo as Antichrist”; Horn
does. Unfortunately, so do other emerging PPP authors.

Mixing “Hellenistic Theology” With Scripture
Rob Skiba, quoted earlier in this article, concurs with Horn and incorporates his
own mythological revelations with additional wild surmisings. Based on
“Hellenistic Theology,” which is another term for Greek mythology, Skiba makes
the case for a resurrection of Apollo. In this excerpt
notice how these ancient gods of myth and fable are
considered to be real creatures:
In his book Ancient Myths and the Bible, King Wells… makes a
solid case for the Apollyon/Apollo/Nimrod connection:
The scriptures tell us that in the Greek, this angel [of Revelation
9:11] goes by the name of Apollyon. Apollyon is the Greek god
Apollo. According to Webster's, Apollyon is a common
misspelling of Apollo. - Ancient Myths and the Bible, by King
Wells (page 34) …
Exhibit: A source of truth for Skiba207
In Hellenistic theology, [Ed. note: i.e., Greek mythology] Apollo is generally depicted as a very
benevolent god, representative of poetry, music and the arts. However, he is also known as the
sender and stayer of pestilence. As a son of Zeus this would certainly fit - especially if my thesis
is true that Zeus is Lucifer - a being who loves to appear as an angel of light and goodness, but
in fact is the harbinger of plague, pestilence and death. Considering the fact that the Fifth
Trumpet releases the plague of locusts (which is certainly a pestilence), the idea that Apollo
(Apollyon) is directly referred to as "the king [that rules] over them" truly fits! King Wells goes
on to say:

72 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Thus, Apollo will have the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit and return with a horde of
demonic warriors who have been bound in the Abyss for centuries. Rudolf Steiner, the author
of "Egyptian Myths and Mysteries," written in 1908,
states that the Greeks realized that the Egyptian god
Osiris is the same as the Greek god Apollo. Steiner: The
Greeks experienced this also, and as they became
acquanted [sic] with the Egyptian mysteries they
recognized that Osiris was the same as the god whom
they called Apollo. They said that the Egyptian Osiris
was Apollo, and that, like Osiris, Apollo worked upon
the nerves so as to achieve a soul-life within man. Ancient Myths and the Bible, by King Wells (page 35)
King later comes to the same conclusion that Tom
Horn, myself and many others have come to believe:
Exhibit: Another source of truth for Skiba208
The Anti-Christ is the return of Apollo/Osiris and probably the return of other prophesied gods,
such as Quetzacoatl [sic] of the Mayans and Baal of the Canaanites. Both of which are sky gods
like Apollo. - Ancient Myths and the Bible, by King Wells (page 37) ...
The Fifth Trumpet blows, and the spirit of Apollyon (Apollo) ascends back into its former host
body - Nimrod. Thus, empowered by the dragon himself, the Anti-Christ will rise. And his first
order of business will be to kill the Two Witnesses! And when they [the Two Witnesses] shall
have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make
war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. - Revelation 11:7 (KJV)209
[italics/underscore in original; bold added; hyperlinks removed]

Most alarmingly, Skiba (above) quotes from Rudolf Steiner as if he were a credible
source of prophetic information. Rudolf Steiner?! He was the founder and leader
of an occult spiritual movement, Anthroposophy, which was closely connected
with the Luciferian Theosophists (who gave rise to the modern-day New Age
movement).210 Steiner had his own version of end-time eschatology, and it helped
to form the foundation of New Age thought!211 Steiner’s occult work, Egyptian
Myths and Mysteries, cited by Skiba, appears to parallel some of the PPP
teachings in its reliance upon mystical mythology for reshaping end times (see
Part 7).

73 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
For example, Steiner taught that:
Through true imagination, we have the task of renewing human knowledge of the creative
forces in nature, as the Egyptians attempted through the Osiris-Isis myth, and the Greeks
through the myth of Demeter.212 [bold added]

Note also that Skiba has connected Nimrod/Apollo/Osiris/Antichrist to another
pagan deity, the Mayan god Quetzalcoatl (Kukulkan). Belief in the reality of this
false god led PPP adherents like L.A. Marzulli, Richard Grund, and Russ Dizdar to
plan a trip (which was abruptly aborted) to the Mayan Pyramids during the
Winter Solstice in 2012—to engage in militant spiritual warfare with this pagan
deity who was expected to make a dramatic appearance (Quetzalcoatl was a noshow). This was documented in Part 3 of this book, “Techno-Dimensional Prayer
Combat,” as well as a number of earlier Herescope articles on the topic.213
All this emphasis on ancient pagan mythology brings to mind the Scripture in
Jeremiah 51 warning about the dire effects on those who engage in idolatry:
“Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image: for
his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, the work of
errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish (Jer. 51:17-18).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
A 2ND COMING of the Antichrist?
According to these PPP leaders, it is the Antichrist who is coming again. Their
focus is not on the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. One seldom hears
anything about our risen, resurrected Savior. Rather, these collaborators have an
intensive fascination with darkness, including the Antichrist, embodied in the
mythological deity of Apollo or Osiris, who they claim is really Nimrod, who is
going to be “reanimated.” (If you are having difficulty following this convoluted
logic, rest assured that you are not alone.)
With Tom Horn’s leadership and assistance, this heresy about Apollo’s return
continues to make traction in prophecy circles. Each new writer picks up the
theme and transmits it with new sensational twists. Horn not only published, but
wrote the Foreword to Peter Goodgame’s sacrilegious The Second Coming of the
Antichrist. In this Foreword, Horn elaborates on the same themes promoted by
both authors, including referring to the offensive and racist “serpent seed”
doctrine215:
MOST PROPHECY EXPERTS today believe the Man of Sin spoken of in Scripture will soon emerge
on the world scene as a savior... the source of his profound comprehension and irresistible
presence will be the result of an invisible network of thousands of years of collective
knowledge stemming from his embodiment of a very old, super-intelligent spirit. As Jesus
Christ was the “seed of the woman” (Genesis 3:15), he will be the “seed of the serpent.” And
though his arrival in the form of a man was foretold by numerous Scriptures, the broad masses
will not immediately recognize him for what he actually is—paganism’s ultimate incarnation:
the “beast” of Revelation 13:1.216 [bold added]
This is where the very title of Peter Goodgame’s fascinating new book, The Second Coming of
the Antichrist, introduces an intriguing hypothesis—that Satan’s seed was manifest once before
in history and is now poised to return again in bodily form. People not familiar with biblical
eschatology may find this idea fantastic, that the being who becomes the Antichrist was once
alive, then was dead, and returns from the grave to rule the world in the end times… 217 [bold
added]
This entity—identified in the Greek New Testament as Apollo—was known to the Egyptians as
Osiris, the same deity by different names according to numerous scholars, including Plutarch,
the ancient Roman historian... 218 [bold added]
But in identifying the ancient spirit that will be revived in the end-times Antichrist, the rabbit
hole goes deeper. Convincing evidence exists farther back in time that the historical figure upon
75 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
whom these myths were based was the legendary King Enmerkar of Uruk, known in the Bible
as Nimrod...219 [bold added]
According to a key prophecy in the book of 2 Thessalonians, the Antichrist will be the progeny
or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: “Let no man
deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia; Apollo]”.220 [bold added]

Horn and Goodgame are not alone in their outlandish speculations about a
“second coming” of Nimrod (a.k.a. Antichrist/Apollyon/Apollo). This teaching is so
unorthodox that it requires many “prophecy experts” to back up its preposterous
claims. The more proponents, the merrier. Name-dropping other PPP leaders
gives the illusion of agreement, credibility and scholarship. For example, in his
Foreword to Goodgame’s book, Horn cites “well-known researcher” Chuck
Missler and “nationally recognized prophecy expert” Gary Stearman—popular
Christian authors and PPP adherents who have also suggested that the Antichrist
will be a “return of Nimrod”:
Not long ago, well-known researcher and leader of the Koinonia Institute, Dr. Chuck Missler, in
an online article raised the appropriate question about this text and the connection between
Antichrist and the spirit of Apollo/Nimrod when he asked, “Could it be that this final world
dictator will be, in some sense, a return of Nimrod?”221 [bold added]
Nationally recognized prophecy expert Gary Stearman believes this is more than a possibility.
Over the years, Stearman has written extensively about Nimrod and the connection this
historical figure has with Babylonian Mystery Religion, Watchers, Nephilim, the spirit of the
end-times Antichrist, and revival of paganism. He thinks that, in fact, the coming of Antichrist
could represent a return of Nimrod…222 [bold added]

Tom Horn also cited Gary Stearman as a fellow “biblical scholar” concerning “a
return of Nimrod” in a 2009 NewsWithViews article series called “Read It Before
Its Banned by The Government – Part 23”:
Over the years, biblical scholar Gary Stearman has written extensively about Nimrod
(Apollo/Osiris/Gilgamesh) and the connection this historical figure has with Babylonian
Mystery Religion, Watchers, Nephilim (including their resurrection), and the spirit of the endtimes Antichrist and revival of paganism. He too appears to believe the coming of Antichrist
represents a return of Nimrod. "But who is this Assyrian," he asked in the July 2001 Prophecy
in the News Magazine, "He is none other than the spiritual inheritor of the first great post-Flood
religious apostasy. He is the keeper of the great heritage that began at the Assyrian capital,
Nineveh. Its founder was Nimrod…. He is the Antichrist, the future despot who comes in the
name of the ancient mystery religion."
76 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
A year earlier, in June of 2000, Stearman had written in Prophecy in the News concerning
Nimrod:
"He was a rebel who allowed himself to be worshipped as a god. After the Flood, his rebellion
became the foundation of mankind’s greatest religious apostasy. Down through the
generations, this system of false worship became known simply as the "Babylonian Mystery
Religion."
Its basis is quite clear. It attempts to channel the power of the ancient gods through the figure
of one, powerful man. Nimrod became that god…"223 [bold added]

Exhibit: Historical depiction of ancient Nimrod—the man224

As we mentioned earlier, the Bible does not say that Nimrod “allowed himself to
be worshipped as a god.” This is pure conjecture. Also note: Horn seems to be
invoking the New Age practice of “channeling” in his attempt to describe how
Nimrod became a god. Once again, an occult practice (or source) is being used to
determine end-time prophecy. Yet Horn then reiterates this mythological
“prophecy” as though it was biblically credible:
Consequently, if the Antichrist is the resurrection of the demon Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod as
prophesied by the apostle Paul, not only will he be the exact opposite of Jesus (Son of God), but
the forerunner of the return of the nephilim. In The Second Coming of the Antichrist, Peter
Goodgame employs his finely honed skills as a researcher to magnificently interpret the ancient
history that evolved around these events as well as eschatological concepts in line with the
Hebrew Bible, Greek, and Semitic languages that vividly warn how this offspring of fallen
angels and humans may not remain a thing of the past; that in fact a repeat of the activity that

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
gave rise to the ancient despot popularly known as Apollo, Osiris, and Nimrod was prophesied
to return in the end of times in the personage of Antichrist.225 [bold added]

Horn accurately recaps Goodgame’s unbiblical end-times scenario in his
Foreword. Here we have caught a glimpse into the putrid bowels of this particular
PPP false doctrine and book, but there is more… It gets worse...

Apollo/Osiris: Seed of Satan
Goodgame takes the Apollo/Nimrod myth to new depths in his book The Second
Coming of the Antichrist, adding a new twist to the old William Branham “Serpent
Seed” heresy which says that Satan has physical, literal “seed” in order to produce
physical, literal descendants or offspring. 226 In this case, Goodgame believes that
the Antichrist is the actual physical procreation of the devil (again, ancient
Nimrod/Apollo) who—as “the original Dying God”—will resurrect at the proper
time in order to fulfill prophecy. Note these disturbing excerpts from Goodgame’s
book:

“It is well known that the prophecy of the ‘seed of the woman’ was the very first
Messianic prophecy in the Bible. God was saying that one day a human being would be
born, descended from Eve, who would ‘bruise the head’ of Satan the serpent. However,
God was also predicting that the serpent would produce a ‘seed’ who would be an
enemy of the ‘seed of the woman.’

“The ‘seed of the woman’ was fulfilled by Jesus Christ, the literal Son of God; whereas
the ‘seed of the serpent’ was to be fulfilled by the Antichrist, the literal son of Satan.

“What this means is that the Antichrist has to be a Nephilim, just like the Nephilim
described in Genesis 6 who were the offspring of fallen angels who had mated with
human women. If Nimrod is indeed the Antichrist, then Satan has to be his genetic
father, and therefore he [Nimrod] must be a Nephilim.”227 [bold added, italics in
original]

“Nimrod was raised as the son and heir of Cush, but there was something very special
about him that caused him to be called a gibbor. I believe his father was in fact Satan,
the chief of the fallen angels, and Nimrod himself was a Nephilim, a throwback to the
days before the Flood.” [bold added] [SCA, pg. 66]

“… let’s look again at God’s prophecy against the serpent in Genesis 3. God was
predicting that one day Satan (identified as the serpent in Revelation 12:9) would take

78 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
for himself a human wife and produce a seed who would be an enemy of the seed of
Eve, the woman whom the serpent has just deceived… after the Garden of Eden and up
to the Flood there were many fallen angels who took human women for wives and
produced Nephilim. These Nephilim ruled over and ravaged the earth for a long period
of time before God finally wiped the slate clean by bringing the Flood. The Book of
Enoch describes their violence and even their cannibalism that filled the earth with
wickedness. The Flood destroyed the Nephilim and cleaned up the wickedness on the
earth…” [bold added] [SCA, pp. 66-67]

Note once again that in order to create this end-time
prophecy, all sorts of monkey business is done with the
first few chapters of Genesis, including the strange
claim that Satan took a wife. Goodgame also relies
upon the ancient apocryphal Book of Enoch, which
proves to be a main source of polluting God’s Word in
these chapters. In the words below, note how far from
God’s Word these teachings can deviate: Goodgame
actually asserts that Lucifer is not Satan!
Exhibit: PPP DVD on the Book of Enoch228
“Note that Lucifer is not Satan. Lucifer is merely another name for Asshur, the King of
Babylon. He is a Nephilim King…” [bold added] [SCA, pg. 207]
“The King of Babylon is the evil seed. He is the seed of the serpent whose birth was predicted
in Genesis 3:15, who stands opposed to Jesus, the seed of the woman.” [bold added] [SCA, pg.
213]
“'The Assyrian’ is Asshur the King of Babylon. He is Nimrod, the historical figure who became
worshiped as Asshur the Assyrian god.” [bold added, italics in original] [SCA, pg. 214]

Furthermore, Goodgames asserts that the Egyptians are a source of “absolute
truth” particularly regarding the mummification of Osiris [i.e., Apollo/Nimrod],
who will experience a “resurrection”:
“Yes, this is the absolute truth: according to the Egyptians, Osiris was the world’s very first
mummy. For a specific reason, which is clear to us now that we recognize him as the once and
future Antichrist king, the Egyptians wanted to make sure that the body of Osiris would remain
preserved and intact. Osiris was the original case of mummification after death… Those closest
to Osiris knew that he would one day need to use his body again when he returned to the land
of the living…” [bold/underscore added, italics in original] [SCA, pp. 272-273]
79 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
“One way or another, the legendary origins of Freemasonry all point back to Egypt, to the
Great Pyramid, and to Osiris—the Egyptian version of Nimrod the Nephilim King. He is the
original Dying God whose death brought about the era of the pagan gods, and whose
resurrection will be accompanied by their return.” [SCA, pg. 329] [bold added]

Not only is the contention that Antichrist will
be a reincarnated” Egyptian mummy”
ridiculous and absurd, but Goodgame’s
identification of this fictitious Nephilim King
(Nimrod) as “the original Dying God” (note
the capital “G” in his quote) is patently
blasphemous—bumping Jesus Christ into
“second place” and minimizing His unique
resurrection. Relying upon the “legendary
origins of Freemasonry” and “Great Pyramid”
symbology, Goodgame sadly reveals the
extent to which he will resort to borrowing
from occult sources to prop up his Apollo
thesis.
Exhibit: An Egyptian mummy229
These pagan myths not only distort the Scripture out of all proportion, but in
doing so, overshadow the first mention of the Gospel in the Bible by downgrading
the primacy of Christ (Gen. 3:15). They usurp the unique testimony of the Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, who defeated Satan on the Cross.

Reliance Upon Occult Sources
The flagrant usage of occult source material for constructing end-time prophecy
seems to be boundless. It only gets worse. Doug Woodward, PPP leader and
author of Decoding Doomsday: The 2012 Prophecies, the Apocalypse, and the
Perilous Days Ahead, a book published by Horn, (and mentioned above) cites The
Egyptian Book of the Dead, Manly Hall and Edgar Cayce as though they were
credible sources for his end-time prophecy support:
The Egyptian Book of the Dead quotes Osiris (Apollo) saying, “I am Yesterday and I am Today;
and I have the power to be born a second time.” Manly P. Hall proclaims, “Osiris will rise in
splendor from the dead and rule the world through those sages and philosophers in whom
wisdom has become incarnate.” Additionally, [Tom] Horn quotes Hall from The Secret
Teachings of the Ages, in which he says, “The Dying God shall rise again! The secret room in
80 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
the House of the Hidden Places shall be rediscovered. The Pyramid again shall stand as the
ideal emblem of solidarity, inspiration, aspiration, resurrection, and regeneration.”
Interestingly, Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet, predicted in the 1930’s that a secret room
known as the Hall of Records would be discovered within the Egyptian Sphinx. This room would
provide proof of the Antediluvian civilization of Atlantis and provide the history of the world
before the Flood of Noah. So far, it remains undiscovered although Egyptian archeologists are
slowly probing for it. Given that it ruins the notion the Egyptians built their own pyramids, we
can assume the Egyptians may continue to drag their feet. Does the Bible confirm that Osiris
(Apollo) shall rise again? The answer appears to be yes. This resurrection is spoken of in
Revelation Chapter 17:1-13. It’s part of the passage describing Mystery Babylon. 230 [bold
added]

Exhibit: Graphic depicting Cayce’s psychic powers 231

Reality check time. What do we know about these sources?

The Egyptian Book of the Dead 232 is one of the darkest Satanic books in the
world. It is filled with black magic, spells, rituals, incantations,
reincarnations, etc. No Christian believer should ever entertain any of its
subjects. It is a dangerous and demonic book!233

Manly Hall was the author of The Secret Teachings of All Ages, a dark and
mysterious compendium of occult and freemasonic lore. He delved into the
Kabbalah, Hermeticism, Gnosticism and Rosicrucianism, as well as other
ancient occult teachings.234

Edgar Cayce was a false prophet and psychic. 100 years ago he was a
celebrity because he would go into trances to give readings as well as
deliver “unorthodox answers on religious matters such as reincarnation and

81 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Akashic records.” He had many reported psychic abilities and is definitely
not a recommended source of truth for Christians.235
Nonetheless, Woodward cites these blatant occult sources as credible wells of
prophetic information for the end times. Not only does Woodward concur with
the notion that ‘the god Apollo will rise again’ as Horn and Goodgame teach, but
that America is this “Babylon” of Revelation (For further reading, see: “The Rise of
Apocalyptic Paganism in the Church”). 236

Drawing from Other Tainted Wells
There are many other troubling aspects forming the backdrop of Goodgame’s
aberrant PPP doctrines and his increasing influence in evangelical circles—namely
Latter Rain cult and Dominionists roots. On page 361 of The Second Coming of
Antichrist, he acknowledges John and Linda Keough, directors of Healing Rooms
Honolulu and regional directors of Healing Rooms Hawaii. On their website, the
Keough’s state their ministry’s mission: "Perpetuating the Vision of John G.
Lake."238 Lake was a Latter Rain faith healer in the vein of William Branham and
A.A. Allen—he was a forerunner to the modern-day “apostles” of the New
Apostolic Reformation (NAR). 239
It should therefore be a concern to readers to learn that Goodgame and his wife,
Lori, have their own Healing Rooms chapter in Kaneohe, HI:
Kahuhipa Healing Rooms is a healing ministry based in Kaneohe, Hawaii, that is led by Peter and
Lori Goodgame. We are a part of the International Association of Healing Rooms (IAHR) and are
connected with Healing Rooms Hawaii led by John and Linda Keough. 240 [bold added]
82 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Based on these disclosures (and others not presented here), 241 it is disturbing that
any evangelical would promote Goodgame and his heretical PPP ideas—especially
in publishing his unbiblical book propagating the 2nd coming of
Osiris/Nimrod/Apollo—the Nephilim King—the offspring of Satan (see our article
about the Serpent Seed heresy).242
Goodgame was a presenter at Future Congress 2 (FC2) 243 in Dallas in 2013,
alongside Gary Stearman, Hal Lindsey, L.A. Marzulli, Rob Skiba, Doug Hamp,
Douglas Woodward, Jim Fletcher, Terry James, Bill Salus, Russ Dizdar, et al. 244 FC2
was an event that was publicly supported by WND (formerly WorldNetDaily), 245
Rapture Ready Radio,246 and Olive Tree Ministries (Jan Markell). 247 We fervently
pray that these evangelical prophecy leaders would dissociate themselves from
these heretical and occult teachings and return to the pure Word of God.248
Most of the men cited in this article also appeared together at the Pike’s Peak
Prophecy Summit in Colorado Springs every year from 2013-2016.249 The list
includes: Tom Horn, Chuck Missler, Gary Stearman, Rob Skiba, Doug Hamp, Doug
Woodward, L.A. Marzulli, Mark Biltz, Jonathan Cahn, Joseph Farah, Bill Koenig,
Paul McGuire, Cris Putnam, Bill Salus, Derek & Sharon Gilbert, and many others. 250
With his new book and hearty endorsements from others in this camp, Goodgame
appears to be gaining popularity and credibility among them—especially in light
of the fact that chief PPP leader Tom Horn not only published his book, but
heartily endorsed his work with a personal Foreward to it.

grieved at the extent to which these leaders have brought black satanic and
terrifying occult teachings into the evangelical church world.

The Truth:
In his 1992 landmark book, The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back: An Old Heresy for the
New Age, Dr. Peter Jones warned the evangelical church about the rise of ancient
Gnosticism and idolatry. Twenty years ago it would have seemed incredulous to
believe that evangelicals would one day soon actually be teaching about ancient
mythological gods as if they were real beings and part of end-time Scripture, but
that is indeed what is happening today. Read Dr. Jones's sober admonition:
We stand again on Mars Hill [in Athens, ed.], surrounded by a host of unfamiliar and doubtless
unfriendly gods. At some time in the future, perhaps more quickly than we think, true
Christianity could well be reduced to a small minority. Christian ministry in the New Age of
Aquarius will not be for the fainthearted. The defeat of ancient pagan Gnosticism and its socalled Christian counterpart was only gained by deep spirituality, hard theological work, and
often physical martyrdom. But those called by Christ must stand, for they can do no other, even
if it does involve similar kinds of personal sacrifice. The orthodox Christian church needs
courageous leaders, not clerics of leisure and compromise. Without an extraordinary degree of
prophetic commitment and self-sacrifice from a new generation of leaders, the church of Jesus
Christ is no doubt headed for a period of significant persecution. If we do not speak out now,
speaking out later promises to be very costly! Discerning, decimated leaders are essential for
the church in the Age of Aquarius. But not only leaders. At every level, Christians need to
understand what is going on and carry that understanding to every corner of life. The world
needs strong believers as never before, who will refuse to buy into the spirit of compromise
that often unwittingly helps promote the New Age Agenda. 252 [bold added]

At what cost will this false teaching be destructive in the church? How much
longer can evangelical leaders continue to be silent in the face of this growing
apostasy? Where are the courageous leaders to speak out, even if it costs them
their reputation and fortune?
“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the
power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty… And this
voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have
also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light
that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing
this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy
came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the
Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1:16, 18-21).”

nearby collection of apparent pyramid-like structures oriented in much the same way as

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Postmodern Eschatology Pseudoscience
In the last four installments of this book, we explored several key tenets of the
Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP). All of these unbiblical PPP teachings share
the shifting foundation of an emerging False Nephilim Eschatology—the invention
of a new end-time prophecy scenario relying upon an unlimited variety of extrabiblical sources, past and present, even including ancient mythology. Modern
science fiction and pop-culture conspiracy theories are also not off limits, both
which form the foundation for the PPP teachers’ incredible thesis that the planet
Mars has been an off-site staging area for Nephilim invading the earth! 256
“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust,
avoiding profane and vain babblings,
and oppositions of science falsely so called (1 Tim. 6:20).”

Besides the obvious heretical and unbiblical foundations for these postmodern
prophecy teachings, these wild conjectures are also undergirded by false science.
This is what the Bible calls “science falsely so called.”257 Or, in plain English,
pseudoscience.258 What is pseudoscience?
It is a system of theories or assertions about the natural world that claim or
appear to be scientific but that, in fact, are not. For example, astronomy is a
science, but astrology is generally viewed as a pseudoscience. 259
Pseudoscience is a claim, belief, or practice which is presented as scientific, but does not
adhere to a valid scientific method, lacks supporting evidence or plausibility, cannot be reliably
tested, or otherwise lacks scientific status. Pseudoscience is often characterized by the use of
vague, contradictory, exaggerated or unprovable claims…
Science is also distinguishable from revelation, theology, or spirituality in that it offers insight
into the physical world obtained by empirical research and testing. Commonly held beliefs in
popular science may not meet the criteria of science. "Pop science" may blur the divide
between science and pseudoscience among the general public, and may also involve science
fiction.260 [bold in original]

Pseudoscience does not honor the rigors of the scientific method, and it operates
outside the confines of objectively testing hypotheses, collecting empirical
evidence and verifying documentation. It selects its own peers for review who
possess obvious bias. As such, pseudoscience is perfectly compatible with
86 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
metaphysics. Metaphysics is a term “applied widely and very loosely to anything
having to do with the spiritual, occult, esoteric, Hermetic, mystical, paranormal,
or supernatural…”261 The mixture of faulty science with metaphysics is a
characteristic of the occult world, especially including Theosophy and its
offspring, the New Age Movement. Many beliefs characterized as pseudoscience
are also well-known metaphysical philosophies.262 For example, in “Esoteric
Cosmology,” which is an “occult system of thought,” Theosophists and others
teach that there are “hierarchies of spiritual beings” and “cosmic cycles” in the
universe that require mankind to engage in spiritual disciplines for “psychospiritual transformation.”263

Exhibit: Mars – The Red Planet264

In light of this, what does the planet MARS have to do with the Gospel of
salvation message? Absolutely nothing. But the PPP teachers particularly rely on
both pseudoscience and metaphysics to make their case for space alien creatures
invading the earth to create an end-time ruckus. PPP teachers possess that
unique evolutionary mindset that can also be found in both UFOlogy 265 and
Theosophy – that man was “seeded” by alien DNA at some point in his early
history and that mankind is now reaching the point of crisis where this corruption
will wreak havoc on his future. Thus, PPP teachers spend an inordinate amount of
time in the early chapters of Genesis re-working man’s earliest history. And
likewise they expend a considerable effort developing alternative future scenarios
where this alien DNA corruption crisis reaches galactic proportions (see Part 2).
87 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Although they do not necessarily claim to be evolutionists, the PPP leaders’ ideas
are founded upon esoteric evolutionary ideology. As one critic of this
pseudoscience/metaphysical evolutionary mindset has aptly noted:
Many who believe in extraterrestrial life do so because of evolutionary presuppositions that life
could evolve anywhere conditions are right… [They] look to outer space for the biological and
technological underpinnings of the human race. Yet, aside from their lack of credible evidence
for the existence of these alien forefathers, they still offer no explanation for the origin of the
aliens. If human origins are a puzzle, then alien origins become a matter of the wildest
conjecture.266

This section will examine how the PPP leaders alter the early chapters of Genesis,
and how they connect this revised history to their end-time space alien/Nephilim
hybrid scenarios.

GAP THEORY – A Gaping Chasm
Understanding Gap Theory is important because some PPP leaders teach strange
things like this:
Before the creation of Adam, the civilizations of angels existed on the terrestrial planets.
Throughout scripture there is a consistent reference to the first dwelling places of some of the
ancient sons of God. These angels created habitations on the Earth, Mars, "Astera" the Fifth
Planet, the Moon.267 [bold, underscore added]

Scripture says nothing about these things. What does God’s Word plainly teach?
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and
void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep… And God saw every thing that He had made,
and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the
heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God
ended His work which He had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which
He had made. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were
created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens (Gen. 1:1-2; 2:1-2, 4).”

God—the Creator—made everything out of nothing by speaking it into being (Ex.
20:11; Ps. 33:6, 9; Isa. 45:12). The finished product was “very good”—because the
Lord God had made it! The Bible states that from Genesis 1:1 to Genesis 2:4,
Elohim, the Creator, “created,” “said,” “saw,” “divided,” “called,” “set,” “blessed,”
and then “ended His work” and “rested on the seventh day” (the end of one week)
because His great and good work was completed, done, finished. According to
88 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
this passage, in plain straightforward language, the Lord God created the days,
nights, sky, land, sea, sun, moon, stars, creatures, etc., to accommodate mankind
who would inhabit the earth. Mankind was created for the purpose of serving,
obeying, and worshiping his Creator. This is the context for the opening passages
of the Bible. Note that God did not furnish any specifics regarding the angelic
realm because they are NOT the subject and thrust of these Scriptures. God has
spoken and has given us in His Word what we are to know. Those who choose to
go beyond the parameters set by God, in order to discover things that He has not
clearly written, do so at their own peril.
Why is the Gap Theory such a pivotal issue? Many of the PPP leaders have
embraced the Gap Theory in an attempt to prop up their false Nephilim
eschatology—specifically in nailing down the time frame of Satan’s fall and the socalled first appearance of Nephilim creatures. The Gap is no longer recognizable.
The Gap has now become a gaping chasm into which PPP teachers pour an
incredibly diverse array of extra-biblical speculations.
Pastor Larry DeBruyn published a detailed critique of this theory in “The Gap
Theory – From Cosmos to Chaos, and Cosmos Again.” Here is how he defined the
theory and explained how it came about:
The Gap Theory, as known amongst and designated by Bible teachers, students and some
scholars, proposes that an indeterminate period of real time, constituted of millions, if not
billions of years, existed between Genesis 1 verse 1, and Genesis 1 verse 2. Many Biblebelieving Christians have held to this theory of the Genesis creation account. As paleontological
science began to assert itself upon the understanding of human origins during the early 1800s,
a science that proposed millions, if not billions, of years for the development of life on this
planet, Christian scholars and teachers began to propose different ways of looking at the
Genesis account. First, they offered the idea of progressive creation; that is, that one day in the
Genesis account equaled an age of millions of years. Such a theory, and those like it, is
obviously at odds with the plain language of Genesis’ opening chapter (i.e., days one, two,
three, etc., solar days after the fourth day, and the Sabbath day). But second, other
fundamental Christians, in order to reconcile the presumably immense periods of time inferred
from earth’s geological strata and the death indicated by the fossil record, suggested the novel
idea that between the Bible’s two opening verses a unspecified period of time existed, a
“gap” that could accommodate the fossil and geological evidence. 268 [bold added]

Note that the Gap Theory did not come about until the 1800s—and not until
Christians attempted to reconcile the Genesis record with the new science of that
89 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
time: paleontology.269 They imposed Darwinian science upon the Bible, and not
the other way around. After a careful examination of the Genesis text, Pastor
DeBruyn draws a firm conclusion regarding the veracity of the Gap Theory:
As Genesis 1 verse 2 states, Elohim did not create earth, unlike other bodies in our solar
system, to be uninhabited. So subsequently God created plant, ocean, animal and human life
to inhabit earth. In straightforward language, this is what the opening of Genesis states.
Insertion of a chaotic time period between Genesis verse 1 and verse 2 to accommodate the
geological ages of evolutionary science, explain the ruin of this planet by Satan and his hoard of
fallen angels, and account for the rise of ancient mythologies is arbitrary. In short, the grammar
does not support the gap. Genesis’ six days of creation is not a record of God’s “make over”
of a previously ruined creation.270 [bold added]

Most PPP leaders, however, have placed a “gap” between Genesis 1:1 and
Genesis 1:2 in order to accommodate the origins of the Watchers (fallen angels)
who fathered the Nephilim (by human mothers), and to pinpoint the satanic
rebellion of the fallen angelic realm. L.A. Marzulli, popular PPP author and
speaker, explains these beliefs:
In the book I’m working on The Cosmic Chess Match, I propose that the universe is much older
than 6,000 years. What we see in the first verses of Genesis, seems to indicate that there was a
nasty, cataclysmic, event that left: the earth without form and void and in darkness. The
Hebrew word for form is tohuw. It can mean: formlessness, confusion, unreality, emptiness.
Void, can be translated: emptiness, void, waste. I believe this points to a recreation of the
earth! Rabbi’s [sic] and Biblical scholars have pondered the opening sentence from Genesis, for
centuries. Here’s what I believe. There was a war in heaven and the anointed Cherub, Satan,
rebelled and dragged one-third of the angels with him. It is possible that this rebellion
happened aeons ago and if we are intellectually honest, we will admit that no one knows when
this rebellion occurred. This rebellion may have been responsible for the chaotic earth. On that
basis, I look at the Genesis 1, as a recreation of the earth and there are others who hold this
view as well. (G. H. Pember, Clarence Larkin. I. D. E. Thomas. M. K. DeHaan). 271 [bold in original,
underscore added]

But the Scripture does not teach “a re-creation of the earth” as Pastor Larry has
shown in his careful analysis of this issue. The fact that many other notable
Christians past and present believe this error does not make it biblically true.
Nonetheless, besides Marzulli, both Tom Horn and Gary Stearman also promote
the idea that the Gap Theory is a viable teaching. This is because it forms a
necessary foundation for their emerging end-time eschatology. During an
interview with Horn on a Prophecy in the News (PITN) broadcast in 2013
90 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
(formerly hosted by Gary Stearman),272 both authors affirmed the possibility that
the earth was “re-created”—after the fall of Satan and before the Watchers
(fallen angels) came down to produce the Nephilim by mating with human
women.273
Although calling the Gap Theory “highly speculative, “controversial,” and
“provocative,” PPP adherent Chuck Missler also made great allowances for it in a
ten-minute YouTube video clip in 2008. 274 In explaining the language used in
Genesis 1:1-2 (“without form and void”), Missler cites Jeremiah 4:24-25 to
support a purported gap between the first two verses of Genesis Chapter One,
“…I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof
were broken down at the presence of the LORD…” Pointing out that the barren
wilderness that Jeremiah was describing was at one time “inhabited” (like the
earth in Gen. 1:1), he adds, “Some suspect that maybe Jeremiah is getting a
glimpse of a judgment that preceded Genesis verse two.”
But as Pastor DeBruyn so carefully explained in his analysis of the Genesis 1:2
grammar (above), the “straightforward language” in this text teaches that Elohim
(the Creator) “did not create the earth… to be uninhabited.” Clearly, Missler has
misapplied the passage in Jeremiah to squeeze it into the Gap Theory. After listing
various Christian proponents of this theory, Missler repeats its controversial
nature and then adds, “It [Gap Theory] does seem to link a lot of different
passages.”275 In the video clip, Missler finishes his teaching by offering several
conjectures regarding the timing of Satan’s fall—hinting that it took place
between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. It seems that Missler also needs the Gap
Theory in order to prop up his similar end-time eschatologies, as shall be shown.

“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and
made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the
LORD; and there is none else (Isa. 45:18).” [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Falling Through the Martian GAP
The late David Flynn, PPP leader and author, was
also a proponent of the Gap Theory. Since his
untimely death in 2012,276 Tom Horn has published
a collection of his works.277 Here is how one
reviewer, friendly toward Flynn, described one of
the books in this collection, Flynn’s Cydonia: The
Secret Chronicles of Mars:
Flynn was an advocate of the Gap Theory, a school of
interpretation that sees a gap in time between God’s
original act of creation in Genesis 1:1 and a continuation of
Exhibit: Flynn’s 2002 book278
the process in succeeding verses. It was popular in the late 1800s because it accommodated
science’s geologic age scale nicely. While that doesn’t seem to be Flynn’s primary justification
for the theory, it does provide a convenient place to assign the fall of satan [sic] and other
wicked angels.
Now we come to the second shocking interpretation. That fall was from a destroyed planet —
alternatively named Rhab, Asteria and Krypton — and from its closest planetary neighbor —
Mars. The theory of a doomed planet that exploded, resulting in the asteroid belt between
Mars and Jupiter has been around for a while, but Flynn is one of the first to identify it as an
abode of angels.279 [bold added]

Reality check: Do fallen angels live on Mars!? The Gap Theory became a huge
gaping abyss for Flynn to pour in all sorts of suppositions and conjectures—such
as Satan falling from “a destroyed planet—alternatively name Rahab, Asteria and
Krypton.” DC Comics fans will recognize that Superman originated from the planet
Krypton, a “fictional planet in the DC Universe”!280
According to Flynn, not only did Satan reign over the planets of our solar system
(which was inhabited by “civilizations of pre-rebellion angels”)—before the
creation of Adam—but that there is evidence today of that civilization on Mars:
When Satan rebelled, God cast him as profane from the height of heaven. Because of his
rebellion, Satan was destroyed from the midst of the "stones of fire", the planets, where he
had reigned over literal material kingdoms [pre-Adam]. Evidence of the civilization on Mars
can still be seen, while another civilization of B'nai ha Elohim was destroyed thoroughly,
becoming the asteroid belt... Our studies of scripture have lead [sic] us to the controversial view
92 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
that civilizations of pre-rebellion angels lived on the planets of our solar system before the
creation of Adam...281 [bold added]

It wasn’t Flynn’s “studies of Scripture” that led him to these bizarre false
teachings. These teachings come from such polluted sources as UFO lore, occult
pseudoscience and pagan mythology. Furthermore, Flynn has taught a version of
the Gap Theory about the planet Mars that also has no credible scientific
underpinnings:

When Satan and his angels rebelled, God destroyed their literal dwelling places.
According to scripture this destruction was swift and decisive. The fifth terrestrial
planet which God calls "Rahab" (boaster, pride), was obliterated.

God brought a fire out of Satan's midst, in the center of his greatest planetary kingdom.
The planet Rahab exploded sending pieces of itself into the orbits of the interior
terrestrial worlds. Asteroid impacts on the surface of mars [sic] rocked the planet,
oceans washed over its dry land. The martian [sic] atmosphere was blasted into space.

On earth virtually the same catastrophes took place -- DESTROYING CITIES CREATED ON
EARTH BEFORE THERE WERE EVEN ADAMS 282 [bold added]

Note that Flynn refers to “Adams” (plural) rather than Adam (singular), thus
betraying that he did not believe in the literal creation of Adam and Eve in
Genesis. Michael Heiser (mentioned in Part 3) similarly waffles on the literal
Adam.283 Flynn is not alone in enlarging
the Gap Theory wide enough to
accommodate truckloads of additional
extra-biblical and pseudoscience beliefs,
including alien beings living on Mars.
Others also use the Gap for trafficking
their own novel eschatological ideas.

Lucifer Lives on Cydonia’s Face?
Tom Horn and Steve Quayle, both leading
PPP adherents, promoted Flynn’s book
and strange teachings about Mars in a
2008 radio broadcast.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Among the outlandish themes explored, was Horn’s contention that “Satan fell
from a star system—a planetoid” and that Mars was a possible “prison” or
“outpost” for fallen angels, or Watchers.285
These incredible fables were incorporated into Horn’s fictional book, The
Ahriman Gate,286 where he spun even more sensational themes. 287 Note, then,
how Horn included hearty excerpts of this fictional book into his 2007
“nonfictional” book, Nephilim Stargates: The Year 2012 and the Return of the
Watchers—mixing in these fanciful concoctions about Mars and the Gap
Theory—duping his readers into believing that he was instead presenting
biblical truth. In this excerpt notice the subtle psychological manipulation by
using fiction to change a person's worldview:
Where did Lucifer fall from? Some suggest the original domain of Lucifer was among the
celestial bodies and that he literally fell “from the heavens.” We fictionalized this belief in
our novel, The Ahriman Gate:
As it turned out, Renaldo believed Ezekiel’s citation of Lucifer moving “up and down amidst
the stones of fire” was a reference to the once-glorious being’s dominion of the planetary
belt, including Mars. He had long thought the Cydonia Face and pyramidal structures near
it were curious, potentially illustrating a past Martian civilization that, if proven, would
provide physical support for the Bible’s account of prehistoric war and the subsequent
expulsion of Lucifer and his angels “from the heavens.”
“Keep in mind,” Renaldo shared over the phone, “Such evidence might also provide
background for the building of the pyramids and similar structures on Earth—those
monuments whose technical requirements seem far in advance of ancient man’s
comprehension, the physical construction of which may predate Adam and Eve. The
astronomical features built into the Great Pyramid alone are startling: how the four
corners face true north, south, east, and west; how the antechamber points to the center of
the universe; and so on.” Jones, a history scholar in his own right, was fully aware of the
pyramid’s enigmas, yet now as he listened, he learned something he didn’t know.288 [bold,
underscore added]

Not only did Jones “learn something he didn’t know,” concerning these
sensational unbiblical accounts of Lucifer holding “dominion over the
planetary belt”, “a past Martian civilization,” and Lucifer’s pyramid
construction projects in Mars and Egypt—but so do all of Horn’s readers.

94 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Horn’s “fictional” book quoted in his so-called “nonfictional” book289

This teaching—that physical monuments such as the pyramids, were built by
an earlier civilization that pre-dates the biblical Adam or modern man—can be
traced to Theosophical cosmology. The Theosophists taught the very offensive
“Root Race” mysticism which credited early earth civilizations, such as the
Lemurians (Third Race), with building “stone edifices” and “monumental
images,” such as the pyramids in Egypt. The Theosophists connect the Egyptian
pyramids in many arcane ways to the planet Mars. 290 Throughout the
remainder of this book section note how many times Mars is similarly
connected to Egypt in the quotes by the PPP leaders. Why are they teaching
this?
The pregnant assumption by the PPP leaders of course is that the hybrid
Nephilim creatures (conceived by fallen angels mating with human women)
created these purported architectural structures (i.e., the pyramids, etc.) in
Egypt—and on Mars. In the Herescope article, “The Rise of Apocalyptic
Paganism in the Church: Bible Prophecy in Crisis” we cited Horn’s “nonfiction”
book (pictured on the right above) regarding even more outlandish teachings
and wrenching of Scripture involving the Nephilim and the Egyptian pyramids:

95 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Tom Horn relies heavily on additions to Scripture, reinterpreting God’s Word to fit his
extreme end-time notions. In his book, Nephilim Stargates: The Year 2012 and the Return of
the Watchers, Horn explains a supposed end-times prophecy and “sign unto the Lord”
regarding the return of the fearsome “Nephilim.” Note how Horn borrows from occult
sources for information about the Great Pyramid, and see how far these conclusions veer
away from the plain Scripture in Rev. 21:16 [and Isaiah 19:19]:
Not long ago a man whom I have come to know as a friend wrote a book called The
Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse. Patrick Heron published his study after
delving into the history of the pyramids, seeking to explain who built the structures,
how they acquired such mathematical and astronomical knowledge, and what advanced
technology was used in the construction. The answer he came up with was astonishing:
the pyramids were built by the Nephilim…
The Great Pyramid was the only “pillar” standing on the border dividing Lower and
Upper Egypt in Isaiah’s [Isa. 19:19] day, but why would the prophet point to it as a Last
Days sign unto the Lord? Patrick answered me with the “shape” of things to come. He
believes New Jerusalem is pyramidal, as opposed to cubic in shape, and that Watchers
conveyed this design to the Nephilim following what they had seen in heaven. [bold
added]291

Exhibit: Supposed Xenoarcheological structures on Mars & in Egypt292

In order to convey these arcane ideas concerning Mars and Egypt, many other
PPP leaders resort to fiction, speculation and imagination. This is because
openly teaching beliefs found in Theosophy would be too obvious. For
example, Horn elaborately speculates about pyramids and cities built on Mars
during this ‘Gap’ in creation. In order to bolster his case, he relies on a potent
mixture of beguiling fiction and fascinating pseudoscience:

96 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
“Close to the Cydonia Face on Mars is a similar five-sided pyramid with detailed
buttressing suspiciously positioned at 1/360th of the Martian polar diameter from the
Face. In the same area, other structures form a perfect equilateral triangle in what some
experts at NASA are now calling ‘the city complex.’” Copiously scribbling the Bishop’s
thoughts as he spoke, Jones said, “I wasn’t aware of the city complex, but the qualities
of the enormous face are astonishing. Eyebrows over eye sockets with pupils. A parted
mouth with lips and teeth. A nose tapered back toward the forehead. A crown strikingly
similar to those worn by Egyptian and Mayan royalty.” Jones had done his homework
before calling the scholar. Renaldo agreed. “Indeed, Mathematicians have postulated
the chances of the face arising by chance at a thousand billion, billion to one, so it is
significant.” “Significant enough to convince you it’s real?” Jones had asked.
“In my opinion, if what we are seeing in NASA’s photos represent intelligent
engineering, not a trick of shadows and light, we may have no other alternative.” “But
isn’t that anathema? A challenge to biblical history?” Clearing his throat, Renaldo had
said, “Not really. In fact the answer to this riddle is found in the Bible, I’m sure of it, in
such places as the book of Job, where the old prophet tells us that God destroyed the
literal dwelling places of the angels that made insurrection against Him. Job specifically
mentions the destruction of Rahab, a planetary body also known as ‘Pride,’ from
which God drove ‘the fugitive snake.’”
“So you believe, tenuously I take it, that cities on Mars might actually have existed, and
that these were abandoned during a pre-Genesis war between Good and Evil?” “I’d go
a step further.
If pyramids on Mars are confirmed in my lifetime, disclosed by reputable governments
and scientific institutions, mind you, I’ll present it to the Vatican as possible proof of
such a war.” Jones considered the far-reaching ramifications of that comment, the
reiterated, “Not to belabor the point, but wouldn’t questions about the central
doctrines of Christianity arise during such a discovery? Especially if the Martian
buildings match the architecture of structures in Egypt?” “Satan will use it to his
benefit, undoubtedly,” Renaldo confirmed. “People will point to Mars and then to the
Egyptian desert and say, See! Here’s proof! We came from aliens! The Bible is a hoax!’
This could even be part of the strong delusion prophesied for the End Times.” Having
agreed with this and other assessments made by the Bishop, Jones hung up and
painstakingly reconstructed each element of the conversation before drawing his own
conclusions. (Horn, quoting the Ahriman Gate, pp. 109-111)
Though fiction, the above dialogue is based on accepted theology concerning Lucifer and
the possibility that the location from which he fell was a star system or planetoid. Later on
in The Ahriman Gate we dramatize Mars as having become a prison planet, in which the
rebel angels are bound… (Horn, summarizing the fictional narrative above in Nephilim
Stargates, pp. 51-52.)293 [bold, underscore added]
97 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Take note of Horn’s deceptive disclaimer to the reader following his fictional
detour through The Ahriman Gate (via Nephilim Stargates): “Though fiction,
the above dialogue is based on accepted theology concerning Lucifer and the
possibility that the location from which he fell was a star system or planetoid.”
This so-called “accepted theology” was part and parcel of the fiction he just
presented in the preceding narrative! Also key is the fact that Horn does not
cite any biblical text here, nor does he offer any footnoting in any of the 232
pages of his so-called “nonfictional” book. In the back of Nephilim Stargates,
on page 228, Horn includes Flynn’s Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars as
one of the works that inspired his ideas, but offers no specific citations of
Flynn’s work.294
The Ahriman Gate itself begins with a “Note to the Reader” on page 7:
While the story you are about to read is fictional, the technology and prophetic
speculations presented in this book describe factual advancing sciences and future
possibilities as foretold in the Bible for the Last Days. 295 [bold added]

One of the features of pseudoscience is that the lines between fact and fiction
become blurred. Clearly, the references to Krypton, a purely fictional creation
in the DC Comics “Universe” (and Hollywood), indicates how far from reality
these PPP teachers will veer. But what about Cydonia? What is it?

Cydonia’s Face: Science vs. Pseudoscience
Here is a brief science lesson. To the left is the
image of the “Face on Mars” that has so much
esoteric significance to Flynn and Horn, et al.
This is a “cropped version of the original batchprocessed image (#035A72)” taken by Viking 1
on July 25, 1976 depicting the 1.2 mile-long
Cydonian mesa, situated at 40.75° north
latitude and 9.46° west longitude. “A second
image, (#070A13) also showed this face at a
different sun-angle.” These images taken in
1976 had poor resolutions (pixels) by modern
standards.
Exhibit” Cydonia's "Face" (Mars) 296
98 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
UFO speculators have engaged in many wild theories about the early Martian
landscape photos that came via Viking 1.
Several decades later, other spacecraft explored Mars and took new photos,
including the Mars Global Surveyor, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the
European Space Agency’s Mars Express. New photos were taken with higher
resolution and it was ultimately concluded that “a detailed analysis of multiple
images of this feature reveals a natural looking Martian hill whose illusory facelike appearance depends on the viewing angle and the angle of illumination.” 297
Nevertheless, despite these factual scientific documentations of the actual land
feature on Mars, there are prominent individuals and organizations interested in
extraterrestrials (ETs, space aliens) who still insist that this “Face on Mars” is
evidence of a long-lost Martian civilization, including pyramids and a ruined city.
This idea is primarily attributed to Richard C. Hoagland, who developed many
conspiracy theories about NASA and lost civilizations on the Moon and Mars,
including his claims of an on-going massive government cover-up.298 Hoagland has
been a major influence on the PPP teachers, as will be seen later in this book
segment. Like the PPP teachers, Hoagland also seems to espouse the belief in
embedded esoteric mathematical codes and occult “sacred geometry” 299:
Hoagland claims the "Face on Mars" is part of a city built on Cydonia Planitia consisting of
very large pyramids and mounds arranged in a geometric pattern, with the ratios between
measured angles roughly equaling mathematical constants such as pi (π), e, as well as the
square root of 2 (√2), the square root of 3 (√3), and the number 3. He states that the ratio
between the surface area of a sphere and the surface area of the tetrahedron inscribed within
it, ≈2.720699, which is π × (√3)/2, is an approximation of e that he refers to as e'. Since e'/π =
(√3)/2 = ≈0.866, he speculates that the primary meaning of the geometry of Cydonia is to
emphasize the ratio of the sphere and circumscribed tetrahedron. To Hoagland, this is
evidence that an advanced civilization might once have existed on Mars, and that NASA is
suppressing the evidence…300 [bold added]

Of course, when the higher-resolution Mars mission scientific photos were
released, disproving the “Face on Mars” theory, Hoagland at first accused space
officials of fraud. Later, he resorted to claiming that it wasn’t natural geology. No
matter what scientific proof came forth, it became part of Hoagland’s conspiracy
theory about a cover-up. Hoagland’s bio on Wikipedia has a very long list of his
deviant pseudoscience beliefs, much of which he has popularized via alternative
99 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
media outlets such as Coast to Coast radio. 301 Hoagland is so noted for his bizarre
pseudoscience theories that he has even been the subject of satire and
parodies.302 Nevertheless, Hoagland is treated as though he were a credible
authority, and he seems to have inspired many of the space alien and government
cover-up conspiracy theories touted by Tom Horn and his fellow PPP teachers.
Here is a tip: next time you read about a massive government cover-up from one
of these sources, start asking questions about its validity. There are indeed
government cover-ups—no one doubts this—just read the current news! But here
we are talking about the act of CLAIMING a cover-up, which can also SERVE as a
cover-up! Asserting that there is a cover-up can serve as a way to avoid having to
deal with real facts, true science and documentable proof. Anyone can state
anything based on the “massive government cover-up” assertion. For instance,
we could insist that “little pink elves live on Pluto and NASA isn’t telling us” –
and how could it be disproven? It can’t! Yet, it also can’t be proven. 303
Beware: conspiracy theories gain the most traction when there is a bit of truth
mixed with the error! As one writer has so aptly noted:
Idols are not made from scratch. It involves the distortion of already present truth. The truth is
changed into a lie. The lie depends upon the truth it is distorting for its power, just as the
counterfeit depends upon the authentic for its value. Our idols of God contain truths within
them, making them all the more seductive to us. 304

Likewise, the manipulative tactics of inserting niggling doubts into people’s minds,
or suggesting remotely plausible concepts, or mixing up fact and fiction, is how
these PPP leaders gain so much momentum with their pseudoscience. Many of
them simply use the well-worn tactic of asking lots of loaded questions. That way
they can have deniability— “Hey! I was just asking the questions,” they will
protest when challenged. Nevertheless, if the PPP teachers were really interested
in true science, they’d tell you the factual information about the Mars images of
Cydonia’s Face. However, in a surprising twist, Michael Heiser (one of the PPP
teachers cited in Part 3), after the new images of Cydonia were released,
appealed to Richard Hoagland, a major advocate of the Mars conspiracy
theories,305 to drop his ‘Face on Mars’ assertions in light of the factual science:
With respect to Richard, it will be painful if Richard goes the denial route — the notion that the
new image isn’t real, or is doctored, or (worse) still shows a face. He will cross into the realm of
the comical if he does that, so I hope he doesn’t… My hope is that Richard will do what a
100 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
scientist would in the wake of the new photo: say he was wrong, junk all the ideas rendered
null by the error, and then concentrate on the working hypotheses that remain... 306

But then in a convoluted attempt to rescue David Flynn and his related Mars
theories, Heiser recognized how the ‘Face on Mars’ “had an impact on his
eschatology” and wrote that Flynn should spend his time more profitably by
teaching Christians things of the ancient occult:
I think the new Cydonia photo might be more serious for David Flynn since he had attached a
few theological ideas to the “face” (but it doesn’t need to be). Dave is very gifted and, in my
judgment, a valuable resource as a thinker… My hope for Dave is that he will be willing to
dispense with the “face” and focus on what I’ve always wished he’d focus on: occult history
and — more importantly — doing what is necessary to teach that history to a popular
audience…
I’d love to see Dave do more in regard to teaching the principles of sacred geometry, gematria,
numerology, and occult history, especially to a Christian (yes, I said Christian) audience. Why?
Because the thoughts Dave thinks were the thoughts of very important “schools” in the ancient
world — schools that produced their own “occult hermeneutic” for the Bible and biblical
theology. Dave is one of the few people who speak that language today. 307 [bold added]

The implication of Heiser's remarks is that the occult world has something to
teach Christians—that we should be referring to an occult hermeneutic and
sacred geometry in order to decode Scripture! This morbid fascination with the
occult is becoming the operating system for the PPP teachers. Indeed, among
Heiser’s books are: The Invisible Realm, Supernatural (both nonfiction), The
Façade & The Portent (both fiction); all dealing with the demonic realm, the
Nephilim, UFOs and occult mythologies. 308

MISSLER’s Metaphysical MARS
Chuck Missler also entertains a similar Martian theology based upon the
presupposition of the Gap Theory. On his 66/40 radio broadcast, “The Red Planet
and the God of War - The Mysteries of the Planet Mars,” Missler opens wide the
door to considering these far-fetched teachings. Missler engaged the Cydonian
pseudoscience about Mars being a “staging base to plant life on the earth,” but
not for the purpose of disputing it; rather, to give it credence:

101 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
But I wanna—since we’re on the planet Mars, I wanna share some things with you that you
might find interesting and maybe this is old news for you. This is a blow up of something that
occurred on, uh, Viking 1, orbit number 35. It encountered on a large, flat plain—this peculiar
structure. It’s called, ‘the face on Mars’. It’s a structure that’s about a mile across. It’s a
structure that is possibly, many people argue, is just a strange aberration by just the accident of
meteor hits or whatever. But more and more people who have studied it are bothered by
that—for, cause it has some strange features…
Now, as they study this thing, this thing has been
analyzed and analyzed and analyzed… they see,
perhaps the most disturbing aspect of these many
analyses that you see on the screen, the geometry
and the composition so forth is the symmetry!
Random hits of a meteor or something rarely result
in symmetrical designs. The symmetry is one of its
disturbing features. This structure is located in
what’s called the Cydonia region of Mars...
Exhibit: One of Missler's teachings on Mars309
And you can get all carried away with the mathematics and the ratios and so forth. Some
people have. People seem to fall into two camps: those that believe that this is all just much
ado about nothing, those that are convinced that these are fabricated monuments by people,
or some kind of personages that inhabited Mars… Now, one of the things that, uh, comes up in
all of this is, were there beings on Mars? They are quick to jump to the idea that Mars may
have been a staging base to plant life on the earth.310 [bold added]

Note that Missler is citing the conspiratorial theories of Richard Hoagland,
complete with the metaphysical mathematical calculations. In fact, he mentions
Hoagland by name, stating that NASA was going to study these Mars features but
had not included Hoagland as part of their team: “NASA regards him, I think, as
causing too much commotion and stirring up trouble wherever he goes.” 311
Missler continues by resorting to science fiction and guided imagery in order to
describe his pseudoscience version of Mars and its supposed Nephilim inhabitants
who “may have built these structures” such as Cydonia’s Face:
If you can imagine putting on your science fiction hat for the moment, that you’re part of an
inter-galactic mission, you’ve been travelling for light years with no gravity or artificial gravity, if
any. And you are coming into our solar system. The outer planets are gaseous and, uh, not firm.
The inter planet Mercury is 900 degrees Fahrenheit it’s a cool day. It’s not very hospitable.
Venus has its problem being mostly, uh, ammonia, methane and, uh, it’s not a very hospitable
102 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
place. The place that’s most desirable—which has the richest array of elements in free supply
on the planet is the planet earth. But it’s got a substantial gravity. And so the hypothesis is that
such a mission would probably land on Mars despite the fact it’s an arid desert with nothing
but UV radiation—and extreme temperature changes. Very inhospitable in many ways, it could
be a place to get used to a gravitational environment about a third that of the earth before
going to the earth.
And around this kind of a possibility arise a number of conjectures that generally are under the
category of what’s called panspermia—the idea that this kind of a venture is what originally
seeded the earth with its present inhabitants. A very popular theme among New Agers—very
popular theme among those who are fanciful in this area. There is an alternative possibility, of
course, not that Mars seeded the earth, but maybe the earth seeded Mars. There are some
that also, just as off the wall in their conjectures, is that the Nephilim of Genesis 6 may have
built these structures—if it turns out indeed those structures were built… These conjectures
go on and on and on.312 [bold added]

Like Horn, who imbeds many of his fantastically false ideas into his best-selling
books via fictional fantasizing, Missler utilizes the “conjecturing” method to
introduce all sorts of heretical doctrines and strange ideas—like the possibility
that “the earth seeded Mars”—into his teaching! He is not refuting panspermia,
he is entertaining it!
Note how Missler cleverly weaves these Cydonian heresies into his classic 535page book, Cosmic Codes: Hidden Messages from the Edge of Eternity, a Koinonia
Institute textbook in which Missler smuggled in large portions of plagiarized
material from New Age author, Michael Talbot (more on Missler in Part 6).313
Missler opens Chapter 2 with this provocative statement:
The ultimate challenge for the cryptologist is the message from an unknown culture. These can
include records left by a lost civilization or a message from a world beyond our own.314 [bold
added]

In exploring these varying “messages from a world beyond our own,” even the
possibility of “extraterrestrial,” “intergalactic,” and “extra-dimensional”
communication or “interstellar language,” Missler then moves to a section called
“Pictorial Proposals”:
A pictorial approach has the appeal of concreteness… Writing itself began as a series of
pictures… The earliest suggestions to signal man’s presence on Earth to creatures of another
planets proposed giant diagrams… Viennese astronomer Josef Johann von Littrow proposed
digging canals in the Sahara to form geometric figures with 20-mile side. At night kerosene was
103 | P a g e

to be poured upon the water and set ablaze. Charles Cros in France suggested the idea of a
huge mirror to reflect sunlight, like a giant heliograph, toward Mars. Some believe that the
structures on the Planet Mars, photographed by Viking 1 in 1976, are just such structures. The
controversial, but intriguing mile-wide “face” is among the anticipated resolutions expected
from the current Mars missions. Some of the recent returns seem to indicate that the
structures are, in fact, natural; however, there are still many enthusiasts that insist that there
is more there to be discovered.315 [bold added]

In other words, the Word of God is insufficient to furnish us with the truth about
God’s Creation of the cosmos—including mankind and the angelic realm. We
must instead turn to cosmology “cryptologists” like Chuck Missler 316 in order to
interpret secret coded “records left by lost civilizations”—like perhaps the fallen
angels or their offspring who left archeological ruins on the planet Mars! To add
weight to his contention that “a pictorial approach has the appeal of
concreteness,” Missler includes the now debunked “Cydonia Face” photo (taken
from the 1976 Viking 1 spacecraft) pictured above, on page 35 of Cosmic Codes.
“Fascination with Mars” is another title of an article posted on Missler’s Koinonia
House website, which articulates similar views about Mars. Dolphin Lambert, the
author, speculates that some of the features on Mars may be indicative of “some
ancient civilization on Mars” and bear “muted evidence that intelligent beings
once lived there.”317 In conclusion, despite the overwhelming scientific evidence
about Mars, PPP leader Chuck Missler is still perpetuating—rather than
debunking—the pseudoscience and conspiracy theories.

“[Christ] Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were
all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they
be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for
Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body,
the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have
the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell; And, having
made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him,
I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven (Col. 1: 15-20).”

Xenoarchaeology & the Mission to Mars
In the case of Tom Horn and his co-author Cris Putnam, Hollywood movies can
also be used to perpetrate these seductively false Martian cosmologies on
unsuspecting Christians. In their best-selling book, Exo-Vaticana,319 the authors
not only give credence to the myth that fallen angels once lived on planets in the
solar system—with Satan serving as a one-time intergalactic ruler—but also give
credibility to supposed alien structures on the Cydonian face on Mars. Despite the
current scientific evidence, these teachers are still perpetuating unscientific
frauds. Note also that Missler wrote the Introduction to Exo-Vaticana (see book
image below).
Chapter 17 of Exo-Vaticana is entitled: “If Artificial Structures Are Found on
Another Planet (Xenoarchaeology), Will You Lose Your Religion?” Did you catch
that impressive scientific-sounding term, Xenoarchaeology, in parentheses? Here
is the definition:
“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him
become a fool, that he may be wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their
own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
Therefore let no man glory in men (1 Cor. 3:18-21).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Xenoarchaeology is a hypothetical form of archaeology
that exists mainly in the works of science fiction. The
field is concerned with the study of material remains to
reconstruct and interpret past life-ways of alien
civilization. Xenoarchaeology is not currently practiced
by mainstream archaeologists due to the current lack of
any material for the discipline to study.320 [bold,
underlining added]

In other words, “Xenoarchaeology” is a
pseudoscience “that exists mainly in the works of
science fiction.” It is a fitting word for the chapter
which opens with a full-page DVD graphic of the
Disney movie Mission to Mars starring popular

Here is how this chapter opens on pages 467 and 468 of Horn & Putnam's ExoVaticana:
In 2000, a movie directed by Brian De Palma titled Mission to Mars was released to theaters.
It… depicted a NASA commander…who, together with a crew of four astronauts, lands on the
red planet. While exploring parts of the infamous “Cydonia” region, the “truth” about the Face
on Mars as a genuine artificial structure is discovered together with remnants of advanced
alien technology… The film inferred that when we do set foot on Mars, the remains of
pyramids, city structures, and past alien presence could be made near the sphinx-like “face”
and anomalous shapes photographed by the Viking Mars probe. [bold added]

With these sci-fi myths already laid out as truth in subsequent pages, Horn and
Putnam then reinforce their fable by “exposing” one small layer of the supposed
“cover-up of global proportions” over this Martian chronicle—with a dramatic
showdown between NASA and Disney:
In the lead-up to the release of Mission to Mars, Disney had worked with an army of NASA
scientists, astronauts, and technicians to produce the script for the film. Soon after, a row
reportedly took place between NASA and Disney, as it seemed the space agency didn’t like
what the film was set to insinuate: that a discovery had been made of past alien presence on
Mars, that an artificial, sphinx-like “face” and pyramidal shapes near it (photographed by the
Viking Mars probe) had actually been discovered, and that a twenty-five-year cover-up was

being perpetrated by NASA and the US government in collusion with other world powers who
were waiting for a mysterious “right time” to disclose the findings. 322 [bold added]

Apparently, according to the authors, Disney gave in to NASA and became part of
the so-called conspiratorial cover-up—along with “NASA and the US government
in collusion with other world powers” (including the Vatican) who together await
“a mysterious ‘right time’ to disclose the findings.” These conspiracy theories are
spiraling catastrophically, pumping more exciting and elaborate crises — all
serving as fodder for PPP news updates, conferences, and book releases (see 2
Tim. 3:7).
Not one of these contrived Martian civilization scenarios, purported
Xenoarcheology evidence, nor Hollywood film plots can be supported with
Scripture alone. That is why the authors must rewrite the Genesis record in a
precarious effort to make their Martian myths and other false extraterrestrial
teachings seem Biblical. They must also resort to conspiracy mongering to hide
these facts while at the same distracting their audience with sensational and
titillating fodder. While these worldly tactics may sell movies, books, and false
ideas—and enhance monetary gain—they turn the truth of God upside down (see
Romans 1:25). It gets worse. Much worse...

Mainstreaming Metaphysics into the Church

Roswell, New Mexico, home of the infamous 1947 UFO incident.323
The text that accompanies this photo mentions the connection of alien life to the
Hermetic324 belief in “as above, so below” and links this idea to the trio’s Mars
fabrications:
“Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven
above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else (Deut. 4:39).” [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Flynn, Heiser, & Hoagland at Ancient of Days Conference 325
David Flynn's book Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars has a different take on the masonic
hermetic credo "As above, so below", discussing among other things, the beyond-coincidental
re-occurrence of Sidonia/Cydonia references in ancient science and mythology. Richard
Hoagland was among the first to read "Cydonia", and praised Flynn's research at the Roswell
UFOs & the Bible conference in 2003 (with Mike Heiser & Hoagland, DVD lectures available…).
Richard Hoagland comments on Flynn research in COAST [to Coast radio] hour 3 saying: "David
has found extraordinary evidence which he's laid out both in his presentation in Wisconsin and
in his own book... okay, not only is there quite likely stuff on mars [sic], but that stuff was built
by somebody who has some connection to us, somehow came here, somehow imbued our
culture, our most ancient cultures, with their presence, their philosophy, their universal view,
and left us with a legacy which demands we find out ultimately what it means." 326 [bold added]

Note that “as above, so below (a monistic belief),” is also an integral part of the
cosmogony327 of Theosophy, and was written about in The Secret Doctrine by
occultist Madame Blavatsky.328
Note also that Hoagland’s inspiration includes astronaut Brian O’Leary, who was
trained as a scientist but broke away into the New Age movement after remote
viewing, near death, and healing experiences. O'Leary's books Exploring Inner and
Outer Space and The Second Coming of Science discuss UFOS, and “the Face of
Mars (popularized by Richard Hoagland), crop circles, near death experiences,
reincarnation, healing, psychokinesis, mind over matter, Earth energies and the
latest theories on physics and consciousness.”329 This is troubling because many
of the items on this occult list are also taught by the PPP leaders, which raises
further disturbing questions about where they are getting their information.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Hoagland's God, Man, and E.T. Conference 330

In 2003, besides appearing together at the Ancient of Days conference in Roswell,
NM, Hoagland, Heiser, and Flynn also teamed together with other “scholars,
theologians, and philosophers” in Kenosha WI—for a conference called “God,
Man, and E.T.: The Question of Other Worlds in Science, Theology and
Mythology.” (Note the blasphemous graphic in the alien imagery above.) The
speakers seriously explored the feasibility of “an ancient civilization on Mars.”
Here is Hoagland’s description of what transpired:
After much discussion (especially re the overwhelming religious implications of such evidence…)
we decided the research was mature enough (after over 20 years…) to gather a number of
other scholars together—ranging from mainstream theologians to philosophers, and even a
fundamentalist Christian mythologist [Flynn]!—and spend an entire day presenting to and
discussing with each other… not only the very robust evidence now existing for “a former,
ancient, ET civilization on the planet Mars… which may somehow be connected directly to the
human race…”—but also the larger possibilities (and greater implications) surrounding the
existence of past and/or present ET civilizations far beyond the solar system.331 [bold added]

Note Hoagland’s reference to Flynn as “a fundamentalist Christian mythologist.”
This is an oxymoron! He can either be either a fundamentalist Christian or a
mythologist (i.e., “an expert in mythology”) 332, but not both. Mythology is idolatry

109 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
according to Scripture (i.e., Acts 17:16). Here is how Flynn is listed in an ad for the
6-DVD set of the God, Man & ET conference:
Dave Flynn - "The Mars/Earth Connection: Cydonia in Ancient Science and Mythology." Dave
Flynn, well-known mythologist in the Christian community, and expert on Cydonia / Mars
anomalies and Biblical teachings, occult mythology, and zodiacal and processional
phenomena. Author of "Cydonia and the Mysteries of Mars"333 [bold added]

Christianity is totally incompatible with “occult mythology and zodiacal and
processional phenomena (i.e., astrology)”—which the Bible declares are
forbidden realms to the Christian (Deut. 18:10-12; 29:29; Isa. 47:12-14; 1 Tim. 1:4;
2 Tim. 4:4). Sadly, Flynn, also a Gap Theory proponent, could have only become
an “expert” in such strange “anomalies” by departing from the Scripture and
devoting himself to the study of arcane and occult phenomena—themes which
have permeated his writings and pollute the Word of God. 334
These PPP teachers admit that they are going outside of Scripture for their source
material. They are borrowing heavily from some of the blackest occult resources.
In fact, one of the most important aspects of widening the gap in the Gap Theory
is the subtle synthesis of Theosophy (and other evolutionary occult religions) with
Christianity. This synthesis permits a new eschatology to be birthed (see Part 6),
one which is perfectly compatible with all of the world religions. While protesting
to be biblical, the PPP teachers add in pseudoscience, metaphysics—specifically
the cosmology of Theosophy.

Theosophy & the Martians
In an article subtitled “The Pyramids of Mars and Egypt Linked?” Doug
Woodward, a leading PPP teacher (cited in Part 4), cleverly asked provocative
questions concerning the beliefs of Richard Hoagland while challenging the
biblical worldview by suggesting there are connections between Mars, the
Egyptian pyramids, and a pre-Adamic race.
At stake for those who hold to the Biblical worldview is simply this: if intelligent life could be
discovered on Mars, what would it infer about how life originated on earth? Was life here
seeded by Martians? Or is the reverse true? Did an ancient race (perhaps a civilization
destroyed at least 12,000 years ago) achieve vast knowledge of the cosmos, travel to Mars,
and seed life there? Is this the connection to the Egyptian pyramids and the ‘City’ on Mars?

110 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Would the Bible allow that a pre-Adamic race once existed prior to Genesis 1:2 and was
responsible for the signs of ancient civilization on earth and Mars? 335 [bold added]

Woodward’s Gap-dependent insinuation, “Was life here seeded by Martians? Or
is the reverse true?” hearkens back to Missler’s loaded conjecture: “There is an
alternative possibility, of course, not that Mars seeded the earth, but maybe the
earth seeded Mars,” quoted earlier. All of these unbiblical ideas help to further
their False Nephilim Eschatology.
Another similarity between them is that reading Woodward is a lot like reading
Missler. He hints and dodges, and rather than stating his views outright, you have
to read through his litany of "expert" finds to encounter a clue. He also supplies a
boatload of government conspiracy "facts" mingled with an array of occult
methodologies—without outright condemnation—such as spy-like "remote
viewing", “astral projection”, and “synchronicities”:
Indeed, while there are strengths in Hoagland’s NASA conspiracy theory (that many find
persuasive including this author), his supposition that ‘the Face’ evinces life on Mars begins to
stretch the credulity of even the most enthusiastic believer in ‘intelligent life on other
planets’. Indeed, perhaps the greatest support for the ancient existence of Martian intelligence
comes from the military’s remote viewers who frequently visit Mars, vis-a-vis via astral
projection, confounded by what they ‘see’. If the reader regards their witness as worthy
evidence, Hoagland’s Martian theory becomes especially compelling.
On the other hand, although Hoagland’s Martian theory is extreme in the author’s opinion, his
conspiracy theory (that NASA has since inception chosen arcane flight times and landing
locations on the moon and Mars – an agenda influenced by Nazi and Freemason connections
within NASA) aka his ‘ritual alignment model’, appears substantiated by repeating
‘coincidences’. In other words, a pattern of repeating ‘synchronicities’ seen in historical events
strongly suggests we are dealing with intention and not coincidence. 336 [bold added]

Note also the suggestive “IF the reader…” phrase. But even if these accounts are
not true, then there is always conspiracy theory and secret hidden coded
information to fall back on for evidence. Woodward implies an unseen hand
orchestrating “intention”.
Relying heavily upon such NASA cover-up conspiracies, Woodward also discusses
Hoagland’s assertion that “Cydonia is linked with the civilizations of ancient
Egypt.”337 but where did Hoagland get his ideas? One obvious answer is that this
Mars-Egypt connection can be found in Theosophy’s cosmology—that even
teaches about the return of Nephilim!338 One of the leading early Theosophists,
C.W. Leadbeater, wrote prolifically about “Mars & Its Inhabitants,” stating that it
111 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
evolved in a manner similar to earth and that “Martian history in the remote past
was not unlike our own.” He claimed:
The great system of canals which has been observed by terrestrial astronomers was
constructed by the second order of moon-men when they last occupied the planet…
On every hand one sees signs of a very old civilization, for the inhabitants have preserved the
tradition of all that was known when the great life-wave of humanity occupied the planet…339
[Bold added]

Leadbeater believed that the Martians “joined themselves together in a secret
brotherhood” and existed in a “super-physical”
world (what the modern PPP advocates refer to
as hyper-dimensional physics).340 These
Martians, said Leadbeater, “took up the study of
mesmerism and spiritualism, and many of them
developed a good deal of power”:
Some at least of the members of the secret society have
learnt how to cross without great difficulty the space
which separates us from Mars, and have therefore at
various times tried to manifest themselves through
mediums at spiritualist seances, or have been able, by
the methods which they have learnt, to impress their
ideas upon poets and novelists.341 [bold added]
Exhibit: Occultist C.W. Leadbeater 342

Leadbeater further claimed that his observations were based on “inquiry and
during various visits to the planet.”343 Note that he actually says he visited Mars
(perhaps through what Woodward described as, “remote viewing… vis-a-vis via
astral projection”). Leadbeater was a very unsavory character who engaged in
pederasty, and who was very high up in the Theosophy leadership with Helena
Petrovna Blavatsky. He and Annie Besant “reputedly made ‘...occult investigations
together into the cosmos, the beginnings of mankind, chemistry and the
constitution of the elements, as well as frequently visiting the Masters together in
their astral bodies’.”344
Leadbeater, like many of the other Theosophists at his time, claimed clairvoyant
and psychic abilities, including the ability to engage in celestial travel and receive
channeled transmissions from higher beings. This is how he says he obtained his
information for his book “The Inner Life, in which he wrote that there is a
population of human-like beings on the planet Mars.”345 In fact, much of the
112 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
information about these arcane landforms on Mars come via occult channeled
transmissions. That doesn't appear to stop the PPP leaders from using this
information and treating it as though it were a credible source of factual
information. Again, pseudoscience and metaphysics blend seamlessly together.
One of the footnotes in Woodward’s article, mentioned above, references James
Hurtak:
an assistant to Andrija Puharich when The Nine was getting revved up in the 1950s, has become
a leading authority on the connections between Mars and Egypt. Prior to the photographic
evidence for a face on Mars, Hurtak remote viewed the face, declaring its presence and
evidence for intelligent life on the Red Planet.346 [bold added]

What or who is “The Nine” referring to? According to a May 27, 2012 San Jose
Mercury News article, it is “a reference to the so-called nine extraterrestrials from
the star Sirius that British psychic Jenny O’Connor said she ‘channeled.’” 347 And
who is Hurtak? He is a later proponent of the same theosophical theories about
the connection between Mars and Egypt, described as a “Social scientist, futurist
and remote sensing specialist.”348 Here is yet another man who claims psychic
abilities for remote viewing of extraterrestrials on other planets. He referenced
the Enoch theories early on, even claiming a visitation from Enoch!
Dr. Hurtak is best known for his book published in the early 1970s entitled The Book of
Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch where he claimed to receive knowledge from a visitation from
Enoch, where he pointed out the apparently unusual relationship of the star shafts in the Great
Pyramid with the "Belt" of Orion, and where he claims that pyramids were built on Mars for
artificial intelligences to gather intelligence.349 [bold mine]

This background raises more unsettling questions. To what extent have his
writings influenced the postmodern prophecy teachers? Following the rabbit
trails in researching the roots of these strange and unbiblical PPP teachings about
Mars leads into some very dark, scary and sinister places. We seldom, if ever, find
any references about Jesus Christ and His Saving Grace for lost souls in any of this
horrid material. Where is the Lord Jesus? Where is mention of his glorious Second
Coming? Where are the calls to share the Gospel before He returns in judgment?
This flagrant omission (or demotion in emphasis) should be a huge waving red
flag.
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He
appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Heb. 9:28).”

113 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Cultivating A Cosmic Worldview
There seems to be another agenda at work in the PPP emerging prophecies—
shifting your worldview. L.A. Marzulli (cited in Part 3), introducing himself as “a
Sci-Fi writer” while talking about the images on the Martian landscape, concludes:
The implications are clear, intelligent life, perhaps from a civilization that existed long ago, is
responsible for the artifact…350 [bold added]

But then Marzulli goes on to ask the key questions—questions that we find over
and over again in the PPP literature (including many examples in the quotes in
this book segment)— questions that are designed to change your worldview, to
raise those niggling doubts about your end-time eschatology and your faith:
The site is one of many that deal with the possibility of alien artifacts being found on the
Martian surface. How would such a discovery affect you? How would it change or reshape
your world view? If you are a religious person, would this challenge your belief system?351
[bold added]

This is precisely the same question that Tom Horn and Cris Putnam asked in
Chapter 17 of Exo-Vaticana: “If Artificial Structures Are Found on Another Planet
(Xenoarchaeology), Will You Lose Your Religion?” So that’s what this is all about!
Changing our belief system and worldview (see Part 6). Believers beware!

The Truth: The Ever-Expanding Gap
As has been demonstrated in this book segment, the Gap Theory has become so
broad, so wide, that these teachers are driving every sort of heresy through its
‘broad way’ opening. The emerging eschatology versions of the expanded Gap
Theory accommodates all sorts of wild suppositions regarding Satan’s fall, the
Watchers, and the Nephilim, to include elaborate speculations about an alien
outpost on the planet Mars. Not one of these things, however, are found in the
Word of God. These teachings can, however, be found in Theosophical and occult
religions. Metaphysics, pseudoscience, and wild unprovable conspiracy theories
are being emptied into the ever-widening chasm of The Gap at an accelerating
rate. These heresies are pouring through that Gap and coming into the church like
a raging flood—virtually unopposed.
The Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) teachers rely on their “secret opinions”
and “hidden meanings” to build their case that there is a scary emerging
eschatology for the church world, one that focuses more on space aliens than
114 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Jesus Christ and His salvation for a lost world. They give equal prominence to their
extra-biblical sources, believing that these additional teachings are revealing
hidden things in God's Word. But we don't need to run to the occult to get
spiritual answers. Since when are demonic channelings truthful sources of
information?! Rather, such communication is emphatically condemned by God
(Deut. 18:11; Lev. 19:31; 20:6, 27; Isa. 8:19).
The questions then become quite obvious: How far can the Gap Theory expand to
accommodate all of the extra-biblical metaphysics and pseudoscience yet still
retain its former respectability? How far are evangelical leaders willing to go in
tolerating this extreme sort of heresy? When is it time to biblically separate from
these PPP teachers, deeming them false, and warning others?
Unhindered and unopposed, these PPP leaders will continue their speculations to
bizarre extremes. 1 Timothy 6:4 uses the words “evil surmisings” which seems
illustrative of the zany speculations and conspiratorial conjectures engaged in
continually by PPP teachers. What are evil surmisings? The Greek indicates:
hyponoeŒoµ, hypoŒnoia. The verb means "to think in secret," "to suspect," or, more
generally, "to conjecture." In the NT only Acts uses it, and with no theological significance. It
means "to suppose" in 13:25, "to suspect" in 27:18, and "to conjecture" in 27:27. The noun has
such senses as "secret opinion," "conjecture," "illusion," and "hidden meaning" (e.g., of
metaphors or allegories). In 1 Tim. 6:4, which depicts the liking of false teachers for wars of
words, the reference is to the wicked suspicions or insinuations with which they try to discredit
those who oppose them.352 [bold added]

The Bible has a strong word of advice for those who find themselves under the
corrupt teachers who engage in end-time evil surmisings:

“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord
Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing,
but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil
surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing
that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself (1 Timothy 6:3-5).”

Metaphysical Mysticism Masquerading as Science
Embracing Quantum Mysticism to Explain the Nephilim, Conscious Reality, and
the Paranormal, and to Shift the Biblical Worldview to
the Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm
by Gaylene Goodroad

Exhibit: Quote from a notable quantum physicist353

Non-locality refers to the quantum mechanics notion that objects that are far apart in space
have connections (or communicate) and can instantaneously affect each other. Einstein himself
called non-locality "spooky action at a distance." Fritjof Capra, author of the Tao of Physics,
states that "At the instant we perform our measurement on particle 1, particle 2, which may be
thousands of miles away, will acquire a definite spin along the chosen axis. How does par ticle 2
know which axis we have chosen?"
Spooky indeed …The purpose of understanding these Quantum Physics ideas is twofold. First,
they will help shift your conscious or non-conscious perception of the world as a cause and
effect Newtonian model to a world of unlimited potential. Second, you can embolden your Law
of Attraction efforts with your new quantum understanding of how vibrational energy is in
everything. There is no such thing as empty space but rather infinite vibrational energy
everywhere. The stars, humans and even rocks are in a state of constant vibration. So we are
always co-creating with our environment.354 [bold added]
116 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The essence of quantum weirdness can be summed up in the statement that quantum
systems—typically, photons and electrons, things smaller than an atom—exhibit ''nonlocal''
behavior. In all previous scientific investigations, nature acts locally. For a cause here to
produce an effect over there, an intervening mechanism must link the two. Such a mechanism
is ''local'' in that you can identify it here and now; the waves that make a skiff bob in its
moorings can be traced to a passing ship. If no waves or other mechanisms could be found
connecting the ship to the skiff, we would have nonlocal behavior, which seems as inexplicable
as if a car were to continue accelerating down the road after losing its drive shaft. 355 [bold
added]
IT SOUNDS like science fiction. Or possibly like something from the New Age movement.
Discoveries from the world of physics make it appear that the universe is a lot less “real” than
we think. And yet a careful analysis suggests that it’s all part of an elegant and unimaginably
complex design. Chuck Missler, president of Koinonia Institute, discussed how modern physics,
while perhaps shattering our traditional understanding of the material universe, actually
points to the Creator of the universe, the One who spoke it into existence: Yahweh, the God of
the Bible. (If it all sounds too weird, maybe it’s because physics is weird.)356 [bold added]

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ”
(Colossians 2:8)”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
New Age Metaphysics Supplanting the Bible
In Part 4 of our book review series, “A New Cosmology for the Church,” we
examined the “Quantum Metaphysics” teachings found in Chuck Missler’s 1997
book Alien Encounters.358 In this segment, we will briefly provide an overview of a
particular pseudoscience directly undergirding many Postmodern Prophecy
Paradigm (PPP) teachers’ errant doctrines: i.e., New Age physics or Metaphysics—
relying upon postmodern quantum theories to explain the spiritual realm, and
vice versa.359 The quotations at the top of this post are indicative of the nature of
the problem. The issue is not the scientific physics concept of “nonlocality.” Our
concern is how “nonlocality” lends itself to the eastern mystical worldview of the
New Age, and how this metaphysical worldview is now being brought into the
evangelical church world, especially via the PPP leaders.
This is an issue that is increasingly a concern as it arises from many quadrants that
infect the church. As a matter of background information, the Discernment
Research team spent nearly 18 months documenting the PPP teachers’
integration of New Age Physics with pagan mysticism, especially in a 9-part series
about “Quantum Mysticism” that was titled “Cosms, Codes, and Cryptologies.”360
We even sponsored a Discernment Ministries conference in June of 2012 entitled,
“QUANTUM MYSTICISM 2012 & BEYOND: Understanding the Deception,” 361 to
profile our research.
Here is a simple definition of “Quantum Mysticism”:
Quantum mysticism is a term that has been used to refer to a set of metaphysical beliefs and
associated practices that seek to relate consciousness, intelligence, or mystical world-views to
the ideas of quantum mechanics and its interpretations. It is considered pseudoscience by
mainstream scientists.362 [bold added, hyperlinks removed]

It’s important to note here that “mainstream scientists” consider the marriage of
“metaphysical beliefs” to quantum mechanics (also called “quantum physics”) to
be a “pseudoscience” or false science. According to the definition above, an
integral component of Quantum Mysticism is derived from quantum mechanics.
Here is a brief description of quantum mechanics from a science dictionary:

118 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
quantum mechanics
A fundamental theory of matter and energy that explains facts that previous physical theories
were unable to account for, in particular the fact that energy is absorbed and released in small,
discrete quantities (quanta), and that all matter displays both wavelike and particlelike
properties, especially when viewed at atomic and subatomic scales. Quantum mechanics
suggests that the behavior of matter and energy is inherently probabilistic and that the effect
of the observer on the physical system being observed must be understood as a part of that
system. Also called quantum physics, quantum theory...363 [bold, underscore added]

It is this aspect of the science of quantum physics— “the physical system being
observed must be understood as a part of that system”—that lends itself to the
pseudoscience of Quantum Mysticism. It can fit into a monistic worldview that is
at odds with the transcendent, all-powerful God of the Bible Who is separate and
distinct from His creation. It can comfortably merge with the New Age worldview
“all is One” or “God is One”—that everything is God (pantheism) or that God is in
all things (panentheism). Pastor Larry DeBruyn has eloquently described it this
way:
Deriving spirituality from quantum science obliterates distinction between the Creator and His
creation. Upon the altar of idolatrous immanence, the transcendent and Holy God is sacrificed.
Instead of worshipping the Creator, quantum spiritualists venerate the creation… 364

A Quantum Metaphysics Revolution
This metaphysics worldview is increasingly popular in the mainstream culture.
One example of these monistic teachings (taken from Hinduism and other Eastern
religions) was showcased in a documentary based on
information channeled365 by a demonic entity:
The 2004 film What the Bleep Do We Know!? dealt with a
range of New Age ideas in relation to physics. It was produced
by the Ramtha School of Enlightenment, founded by J.Z.
Knight, who claimed her teachings were based on a discourse
with a 35,000-year-old disembodied entity named Ramtha. It
made controversial use of some aspects of quantum
mechanics—including the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
and the observer effect—as well as biology and medicine.
Numerous critics dismissed the film as pseudoscience.366

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
One “expert” appearing in this overtly New Age film, Dr. Amit Goswami, PhD, not
only authored numerous textbooks on quantum mechanics and New Age
“science,” but has also produced an award-winning video called The Quantum
Activist.368 Note Dr. Goswami’s anti-biblical monistic worldview and how it is tied
to global ecumenical unity goals:
Join the revolution going on in science. A genuine paradigm shift. While mainstream science
remains materialist, a substantial number of scientists are supporting and developing a
paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness. Dr.
Amit Goswami, Ph.D, a pioneer of this revolutionary new
perspective within science shares with us his vision of the
unlimited potential of consciousness as the ground of all
being, and how this revelation can actually help us to live
better. The Quantum Activist tells the story of a man who
challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and
reality, with a force and scope not felt since Einstein. This
film bridges the gap between God and Science. The work
of Goswami, with stunning precision and without straying
from the rigors of quantum mechanics, reveals the
overarching unity inherent in the worlds [sic] major
religions and mystical traditions.369 [colored text
removed, bold added]
Exhibit: New Age film 370

It’s interesting that the word “revolution” was highlighted bright red on Dr.
Goswami’s website. A revolution is an organized revolt against the established
order to enforce new rules or laws—or in this case—to ‘shift the paradigm’ to
Quantum Mysticism. Goswami’s stated goal is to “bridge the gap between God
and Science.” To this end, he has indeed “obliterated the distinction between the
Creator and His creation.”371
In order to ‘shift the paradigm’, the God of the Bible must be eliminated and
replaced with a New Age, “all is One” god: “the ground of all being” that Dr.
Goswami cited. Christian author Warren B. Smith, who has a powerful testimony
of coming out of the New Age movement,372 described this false god—a divinized
creation—in his critique of a bestselling Christian fiction book, The Shack:

However, the author’s [Wm. P. Young] use of poetic license to convey his highly subjective, and
often unbiblical, spiritual views becomes increasingly problematic as the story line develops.
This is most apparent when he uses the person of “Jesus” to suddenly introduce the
foundational teaching of the New Spirituality/New World Religion — God is “in” everything.
Using the New Age term “ground of being” to describe “God,” the “Jesus” of The Shack states:
“God, who is the ground of all being, dwells in, around, and through all things…” (p. 112)
This false teaching about a “God” who “dwells in, around, and through all things” is the kind of
New Age leaven that left unchallenged could leaven the church into the New Age/New
Spirituality of the proposed New World Religion… 373 [bold added]

This paradigm shift in thinking about the nature of reality is an essential feature of
New Age eastern mysticism. Marilyn Ferguson, like Dr. Goswami, described this
New Age “paradigm shift” as a “revolution” in perception and thinking about
reality in her groundbreaking book The Aquarian
Conspiracy that launched the New Age as a
formidable movement.374 She made the
sweeping assertion that her Aquarian conspiracy
would destroy the old beliefs and inaugurate a
New Age revolution:
The Aquarian Conspiracy is using its widespread outposts
of influence to focus on the dangerous myths and
mystiques of the old paradigm, to attack obsolete ideas
and practices… We can conspire against the old, deadly
assumptions… [A] revolution in understanding [is] how
revolutions begin…375
The graphic symbol on this book cover represents a 6-6-6376

We already know that the old paradigm she is referring to, the one she says needs
to be attacked as obsolete and dangerous, is the biblical worldview. Replacing it
will be a revolution in understanding; a paradigm shift to an eastern mystical
worldview. In this New Age eastern worldview there is no reality.

Rethinking Reality by Shifting the Paradigm
In our previous examinations of New Age Physics—quantum mechanics yoked
with mysticism—we noted several PPP teachers, akin to William P. Young (author
of The Shack), who have likewise introduced this paradigm-shifting leaven into
121 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
the evangelical mainstream through pseudo-scientific theory, speculation and
vain imagination. We prominently cited popular Bible teacher and author Chuck
Missler as one who consistently has admonished readers to unlearn what they
know to be true so that he can introduce them to “new truths” 377 about a
metaphysical “reality.” Missler has said:
This field of study is called “Quantum Physics” and its philosophical implications can be
shattering to our presuppositions about our “reality.” We now discover that the physical reality
that surrounds us is only a virtual simulated reality—made up of indivisible, electrically charged
particles: in fact, we exist within a digital electrical simulation!...
Before we attempt to explore the fringes—and beyond—of our understanding of the physical
universe (ghosts, aliens, vampires, etc.), it is of paramount importance to dispose of the
baggage of our misconceptions and the mythology of what we have been erroneously taught in
this age of deceit. The puncturing of our delusions…is absolutely vital for well-being, and a
prerequisite for maturity. Much of what we have been taught is error… 378 [bold added]

These are bold and presumptuous statements. Let’s recap Missler’s dialectical
statements above which are designed to prompt readers to rethink or abandon
biblical truth in order to embrace his metaphysical worldview:

“Quantum Physics” and its philosophical implications can be “shattering to
our presuppositions about our reality”

We can “explore the fringes—and beyond—of our understanding of the
physical universe (ghosts, aliens, vampires, etc.)”

We must “dispose of the baggage of our misconceptions and the
mythology of what we have been erroneously taught”

“The puncturing of our delusions” … is absolutely vital for well-being, and a
prerequisite for maturity

“Much of what we have been taught is error” … [bold added]

Let that last statement sink in for a moment: “much of what we have been taught
is error…” By making this confident assertion, Missler has just appointed himself
to be a teacher of new truths about our physical reality. But first we must let go of
old scientifically verified facts (and biblical constraints). After “our
presuppositions about our reality” have been “shattered,” “the baggage of our
misconceptions and the mythology of what we have been erroneously taught”
122 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
has been “disposed” of, and our “delusions punctured,” we’re ready to move into
this new level of mystical illumination. Because this statement mixes science with
religion, the implication is that the old truths (or understandings) found in
Scripture must be discarded. And note that he is saying that “fringes” of our
physical universe includes the paranormal, i.e., the occult “(ghosts, aliens,
vampires, etc.).”
Notice how Missler needs to cloak his metaphysical mysticism beneath a cleverly
constructed “science” mask to pull it off: “We now discover that the physical
reality that surrounds us is only a virtual simulated reality—made up of indivisible,
electrically charged particles: in fact, we exist within a digital electrical
simulation!...” Where are these strange illusory notions in the Bible? They are not
there, but found in Hindu sacred writings. 379
Now compare Missler’s statements to similar contentions of New Age mystic Dr.
Goswami from the pseudo-scientific and New Age-themed films, The Quantum
Activist and What the Bleep do We Know. Goswami was described as
…a man who challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and reality…380

Both men direct listeners and readers to empty their minds and place trust them
in order to be re-educated (indoctrinated, i.e., “rethink”) with new truth; both
men rely on New Age Metaphysics—and NOT the written Word of God. If these
men were simply talking about factual and scholarly science they would not need
to engage in these clever and deceptive psychological methods of manipulation to
change people’s beliefs. But, as shall be seen, this sort of mind change is actually
an essential part of the emerging Quantum Metaphysics that is being taught.

Quantum ‘Omnijective’ Reality & ‘ALL IS ONE’
Upturning centuries of empirical science and biblical truth, Chuck Missler is
helping to bring the church into the postmodern age of abstract new (but old)
mystical revelations co-opted from Hinduism and the New Age. In his Introduction
to a Tom Horn collaborative book called God’s Ghostbusters, Missler wrote:
As we explore further the nature of the tiny particles that create the illusion of our reality, it
gets worse… If we take any length [and divide it] … we would discover that when we reach a
defining minimum—known as the “Planck length” 10-33 cm.—we would encounter any
attempts to divide that remainder would result in a property known as “non-locality”: being
123 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
connected to everywhere at once! …all “non-local”
particles throughout our apparent universe are
somehow intimately, directly, connected
simultaneously…381 [bold, italics added]

Note that Missler's discussion of nonlocality is in
the context of the paranormal, i.e., Horn's book
about ghostbusters. Is our “reality” (dare we say
consciousness) an “illusion”!? Pastor Larry
DeBruyn explains the implications of Missler’s
universal, quantum, interconnected (“nonlocal”)
system:
Exhibit: Horn’ collaborative 2011 book382
A quantum physical worldview theorizes that the universe is all there is (a solitary system), and
that its unity consists of a composite of parts and events where every function (or malfunction)
of the smallest part (the microcosm) can affect the function of the whole (the macrocosm). As
such, quantum theorists postulate that a butterfly flapping its wings in the Congo might
stimulate a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean. Welcome to Chaos Theory 101.383 [bold added]

This is the never-never land of the quantum metaphysical mystics. If “a butterfly
flapping its wings in the Congo is able to stimulate a hurricane in the Atlantic
Ocean” [i.e., the ‘butterfly effect’], then what harm might a human being be
capable of doing as part of the same interconnected quantum ecosystem? Where
does the God who created the butterfly, the human being—and the entire
universe that these beings inhabit—fit into this non-personal mystical system?
How does the Lord God factor into this quantum spirituality worldview? How can
Elohim (the Creator) exist in this “nonlocal,” “all is One” philosophical system? He
doesn't. “Above and below” become ‘One’ in the metaphysical quantum world.
The transcendent God of the Bible and the impersonal god of New Age
Metaphysics are polar opposites.
That is why it is so disturbing that Missler, in his book Cosmic Codes, reiterates the
mystical version of “nonlocality” from the teachings of David Bohm, a physicist
deeply influenced by the Hindu philosopher Jiddu Kristnamurti384 :
[David] Bohm’s interpretation of quantum physics indicated that at the subquantum level
location ceased to exist. All points in space become equal to all other points in space, and it

124 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
was meaningless to speak of anything as being separate from anything else. Physicists call this
property “nonlocality.”385 [bold added]

Exhibit: Missler smuggled extensive quantum mystical material into his 1999 ‘Christian’ book
that was taken from Talbot’s 1991 New Age book386

A troubling clue to this mystery comes to light when we discover that Missler’s
adoption and citation of Bohm’s metaphysical “nonlocal” ideas in the above
quote (and many others) were actually directly lifted from the late New Age
author Michael Talbot’s work The Holographic Universe (page 41), without citing
proper attribution.387 Since the publication of our article “Without Attribution:
Purloining New Age Ideas,” Missler has publicly acknowledged that Talbot’s words
and ideas were incorporated into his best-selling book Cosmic Codes: Hidden
Messages from the Edge of Eternity.388 Keep in mind that Talbot was NOT a
science author, nor a Christian author—but a New Age author! This is a significant
and sobering disclosure.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers
among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies… (2 Pet. 2:1)”

125 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Missler DVD cover with Talbot’s book title 389

In 1981, Talbot published another book (republished in 1993), Mysticism and the
New Physics.390 In this book he uses the term “omnijective” to expound on the
Hindu concept of maya—a New Age view that he directly ties to The Holographic
Universe:
…the pre-eminent Argentinian writer Borges presents a view normally held by mystics and
‘idealists’: that is, the hallucinatory nature of the world. We have dreamed it, Borges states
simply. In an article published in 1976 I suggested that persistent reports from various peoples
throughout history of encounters with supernatural beings—folkloric personages, UFO
entities, appearances of the Virgin, and so forth—forces us to reach a similar conclusion… In
the article I suggested that such phenomena cannot be understood as either purely objective or
subjective events. Rather they are somehow both, or ‘omnijective’. Furthermore, their
existence suggests that in the universe at large there is also ultimately no division between
mind and reality. Despite its apparent materiality the physical world is also omnijective. I
discuss this idea at length in my book The Holographic Universe… An omnijective concept of the
universe is by no means new. Over two thousand years ago the Hindu Tantric tradition
postulated a similar philosophy. According to Tantra, reality is illusion, or maya. The major
error we commit in not perceiving this maya, say the Tantras, is that we perceive ourselves as
separate from our environment. The Tantras are very explicit on this point. The observer and
objective reality are one.391 [bold added]

126 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
In other words, Talbot’s “omnijective” or
holographic universe is as the Hindus teach: one
integrated “nonlocal” reality. In light of Missler’s
reliance upon Talbot’s work, note the sober
implications of Talbot’s overtly New Age
“omnijective” concepts. The back cover of
Mysticism and the New Physics states:
Nowhere is the ‘paradigm shift’—the radical change of
perspective that is sweeping the Western world—
advancing so rapidly as in physics…

Exhibit: Talbot’s 1993 book392
The new physicists state that reality is a combination of the laws of the physical world,
quantifiable and unequivocal, and the subjective viewpoint of the observer. This ‘omnijective
view’ of the universe challenges all our most deeply held scientific beliefs and could radically
change the way we view reality in the future. As our constructs are amended to this shift in
approach, we can anticipate monumental changes in Western thought.393 [bold added]

In The Holographic Universe, Talbot, based on his first-person communication
with theoretical physicists David Bohm and Karl Pribram—and New Age promoter
Marilyn Ferguson—favorably explored other spooky phenomena associated with
the occult and paranormal realm
including telepathy, psychokinesis,
out-of-body experiences (OBEs),
phantom apparitions, shamanic
travel, and Jungian synchronicities.
Talbot also related these
metaphysical concepts to Hinduism,
Buddhism, Native American
mysticism, and ancient
Hermeticism. Note how far from
science this metaphysics has
deviated.
Exhibit: Another purported Missler quote actually belonging to Talbot394

127 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
A sobering question for the reader is to ask why Missler would surreptitiously
import such “nonlocal,” “holographic” and “omnijective” ideas, directly
connected to these occult notions, into his book—and by extension into the
church?

Paradigm-Shifting into the New Age
There are even more disturbing connections to these mystical ideas posing at true
science. Another author, favorable to Bohm’s (and Talbot’s) metaphysics, parallels
his “nonlocal” ideas to another New Age author Gary Zukav:
…mystical and spiritual teachings down through the ages have also spoken about the
fundamental interconnectedness of all things. If Bohm's physics, or one similar to it, Gary
Zukav writes in his popular New Age book The Dancing Wu Li Masters (1979), should become
the main thrust of physics in the future, the dances of East and West could blend in exquisite
harmony. Do not be surprised if physics curricula of the twenty-first century include classes in
meditation. With the model of the holographic brain, the holographic universe, and Quantum
Physics, we could speculate that all that we hold as real is nothing more than the playful dance
of light, light that has no dimension and limitless dimension.395 [bold added]

Note the Zen Buddhist unsolvable riddle (koan) that the author used to describe
this theoretical quantum model of reality: “…all that we hold as real is nothing
more than the playful dance of light, light that has no dimension and limitless
dimension.” These self-contradictory realities, i.e., possessing “no dimension and
limitless dimension” simultaneously, are not only common illogicalities posed
within these quantum mystical theories—but also in Far Eastern religions. The
Buddhists use them to facilitate Zen meditation and altered states of
consciousness:
ko·an noun \kō-än\ :
a paradox to be meditated upon that is used to train Zen Buddhist monks to abandon ultimate
dependence on reason and to force them into gaining sudden intuitive enlightenment. 396

Another purpose in introducing these mystical pseudo-scientific theories into the
mainstream mindset was presented in the opening quote of this article: to “help
shift your conscious or non-conscious perception of the world as a cause and
effect Newtonian model to a world of unlimited potential.” 397 In other words, the
reader is told to forget reason and truth and instead trust intuition and feelings.

128 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Note the last part of this quote from David Thimme's article on the "Law of
Attraction and Quantum Physics" (appearing at the very top of this segment):
Second, you can embolden your Law of Attraction efforts with your new quantum
understanding of how vibrational energy is in everything. There is no such thing as empty
space but rather infinite vibrational energy everywhere. The stars, humans and even rocks are
in a state of constant vibration. So we are always co-creating with our environment. [bold
added]

Exhibit: The quantum mystical ‘Law of Attraction’ 398

The “Law of Attraction,” a Theosophical concoction (also called New Thought),
postulates that humans can control reality with thoughts of the mind.399 It is
based on the idea that everything in the universe (including thoughts) is an
expression of “vibrational energy everywhere.” This is part and parcel of the
“nonlocality” principle of New Age metaphysics which states that everything—
including human thought—is interconnected in cosmic oneness;400 i.e., “as above,
so below.” This sort of “oneness” is the goal of esoteric evolution, and teaches
that we will all evolve to become part of a divinized cosmic whole.
Dr. Janeen Detrick, an “Energy Medicine modalities” master (New Age doctor),
explains how the “Law of Attraction” operates through New Age metaphysics.
Note the “nonlocal” pseudoscientific principle inherent in her explanation:
Science now realizes that in every cell, inside everything, even inanimate objects, there are
strings of energy that wobble and wave and vibrate in different patterns, and these strings of
energy make up the protons and neutrons of every nucleus… So, literally, your strings obey
your thoughts, and fly out to attract strings that are wobbling and wiggling in the same
129 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
pattern! Other strings that are wobbling and wiggling in the same frequency and pattern will
flock, like a magnet, to coagulate with the other similar strings! Once there is a critical mass of
vibrationally matching strings of energy, “it”, whatever it was you were intending, manifests!
THIS is how your reality manifests! THIS is how the Law of Attraction works! These strings of
energy is how it can be said that “God is in everything and everyplace, all at the same time”,
and that “We are all connected”!401 [bold added]

Besides earning her doctorate in Metaphysical Sciences, Dr. Detrick operates a
healing clinic in Utah utilizing these New Age practices which include Quantum
Touch, The “Laying On Of Hands” Blessing, Quantum Healing, Meridian Clearing,
Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis, Homeopathy, Healing Gemstones as
Medicine, Ayurveda, Nutritive Emotional Clearing, Biofeedback, Essential Oils,
Theta Healing, Theta Yogic Breathing, Reiki, Flower Remedies, and Perspective
Flipping for Emotional Clearing. 402 Again, note that none of this has anything to do
with scientific physics.

Hyper-Dimensional Metaphysical Realities
According to this same metaphysical construct of “nonlocality,” an integral
component of this so-called “vibrational energy” permeating the cosmos is a
hyper-spatial, holographic, or hyper-dimensional reality. Chuck Missler promotes
130 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
these same quantum metaphysics theories in order to explain his own
suppositions and conjectures regarding UFOs, aliens, Nephilim, and other dark
entities. In our comprehensive book review of
Missler and Eastman’s landmark book, Alien
Encounters: The Secret Behind the UFO
Phenomenon, we documented how far into the
paranormal and occult this sort of metaphysics can
lead.404
Missler’s sources for his hyper-dimensional
theories even included Nachmonides and the
Kabbalah. Note how Missler jumps from scientific
physics to metaphysics in the following quotation:
Exhibit: Missler & Eastman’s 1997/2003 landmark book405
The 10-Dimensional Metacosm
Both the astrophysicists and the quantum physicists now tell us that we apparently live in a
hyperspace of more than four dimensions—ten is a current estimate…
Of the ostensible ten dimensions we now know exist, only four are directly perceptible by our
current technologies. The remaining six are “curled” (to use the nomenclature of metric
tensors) in less than 10-33 cm. (smaller than the wavelength of light) and thus are not directly
discernible by current methodologies. It is also interesting that the Hebrew sage known as
Nachmonides, writing in the 13th century, concluded from his study of the Book of Genesis that
the universe has ten dimensions, but only four of them are “knowable” by man.
It appears that many millions of dollars have
been spent on atomic accelerators only to
learn what Nachmonides concluded from
his study of the text of Genesis!...
It would seem that the domain of the
“Metacosm”—which includes the elusive six
dimensions—is the realm of the transdimensional phenomena such as angels,
demons, and, perhaps, UFOs and other
paranormal phenomena.406 [bold added]
Exhibit: Jewish sage Nachmonides407

131 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Chapter 4 of Missler’s Alien Encounters is titled “Reality’s Twilight Zone.” It opens
with the quote from physicist Niels Bohr cited in the graphic image at the
beginning of this book segment: “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory
does not understand it.”408 As we documented previously, Niels Bohr was a
physicist who had designed a coat of arms featuring a yin-yang symbol,409 and
whose existential ideas emphasized “the role of the observer in creating
reality.”410

Exhibit: Neils Bohr and his yin-yang coat of arms found in Capra's The Tao of Physics411

Thus Alien Encounters has been instrumental in catapulting these Far Eastern
metaphysical, paranormal, and occult concepts into the evangelical church. Why
has it been so necessary to introduce these eastern mystical concepts to the
evangelical church—especially in the guise of science? Because it has facilitated
the introduction of an entirely new eschatology. The current PPP leadership,
inspired by Missler’s metaphysical teachings, have concocted a bizarre, false endtime eschatology involving space aliens and corrupted DNA—themes dramatically
embellished and proliferated by other PPP leaders. 412 A common thread tying
these strange new myths together is New Age occult ideas masquerading as
legitimate science. As we explained previously:

132 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Once again, while reading Chapter 4, I discovered that I had a prior familiarity with the topics
that Missler is addressing. I was first taught this new mystical physics – not in science classes –
but in educational psychology classes in the 1970s. One of my professors came out of Stanford
University where he had frequent ongoing contact. I was also taught consciousness as part of
holistic education – that the nature of reality is in our mind, that to transcend our limitations
we need expand our minds and experience a deep inner paradigm shift, that we are not
separate but all interconnected to the whole, and that our minds can change the cosmos. It
wasn’t until the 1980s that I first read Marilyn Ferguson’s book launching the New Age
movement, The Aquarian Conspiracy: Personal and Social Transformation in the 1980s. After
reading her book I finally understood that the strange “physics” that I had been taught in
college wasn’t just eastern mysticism, it was also New Age metaphysics.413 [bold added]

BEYOND PERCEPTION & Into Metaphysical Mysticism
Despite its Hindu, New Age, and occult moorings, Missler has continued to peddle
these mystical physics ideas to the Church. In a highly technical briefing package
produced by Koinonia House in 2010 called Beyond Perception, Missler reiterates
all of these New Age metaphysics teachings—and even more. Much of it is well
beyond the grasp of lay persons, which adds to its deceptive snare. Most
Christians listening to Missler’s audio files or reading the supplemental notes,
loaded with complex mathematical graphics and technical jargon, are conditioned
to trust his analysis of these complicated
theories. But even the scientific theorists
he cites can’t agree upon these things.
Question: If these quantum particles are
‘beyond [human] perception’, how then
can they be verified? How can they be
tested? The answer is, they can’t. This is
one reason why certain quantum theories
lend themselves easily to the
metaphysical worldview.

Exhibit: More of Missler’s quantum mystical teachings

Therefore, Missler can be found to be teaching a metaphysical worldview
masquerading as scientific and biblical truth. For example, despite much of the
133 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
intractable information in Beyond Perception, here is one familiar teaching from
page 6 of the teaching notes:
The World of Quantum Physics
It is non-causal and non-deterministic: Everything is probabilistic in some very strange ways.
Nothing is real; we cannot say anything about what things are doing when we are not looking
at them. Reality is non-local: every particle in the universe is somehow connected.414 [bold
added]

As we noted earlier, the idea that nothing is real is a central tenet of all eastern
mysticism. But we know from Scripture that there is a reality that Jesus died for
our sins on the cross in physical space and time, that Jesus is the way, the truth
and the life (John 14:6). To say that nothing is real is to change the truth of God
into a lie (Romans 1:25).
A June 4th 2013 electronic news alert from Missler’s Koinonia House featured an
article entitled “Ignore the Man Behind the Curtain” which highlights this
“nonlocality” property:
Ever since the birth of Quantum Theory there has been speculation—some privately held,
some very public—of what the implications of the existence of quanta really means. As
measuring devices improved dramatically, they provided more clarity to the issue. Today it is an
accepted “truth” that everything is quantized. Energy (as well as length, time, and mass) exists
in discrete quantities, divisions if you will.
There are also other side-effects to this discovery. Everything is “connected.” All particles on
the quantum level know what the other particles are doing, regardless of distance,
instantaneously. Let that sink in. Also, there is a size at which, when dividing the particle in half,
it becomes “non-local.” It is nowhere and everywhere. Every measurement of the universe in
which we reside has a “quantum limitation.”415 [bold added]

RaidersNewsUpdate, the former website of Tom Horn, re-published an excerpt of
this same Koinonia House article with the re-phrased title: “Ignore The HyperDimensional Man Behind the Curtain,” featuring the DVD graphic from the sci-fi
movie The Thirteenth Floor. It echoes Missler’s belief that “'Quantum Physics'”
and its philosophical implications can be shattering to our presuppositions about
our “reality’”:

134 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Movie graphic from The Thirteenth Floor 416
Ignore The Hyper-Dimensional Man Behind the Curtain
There is a movie from a few years back (The Thirteenth Floor) in which the simulated characters
of a simulated world are confronted with the fundamental limitations of their “ reality.”
Because of the limitations of structure, they were forced to conclude they were living within a
“program” created by an outside source. Ironically, this is where the physicists of our time find
themselves…417 [bold added]

Why do these men prolifically market this sort of physics? Is it to transform the
evangelical worldview from a foundation of absolute truth to one of non-reality?
This is precisely what the eastern mystics attempt to do! New Age metaphysicists,
and those who follow them, inevitably end up in the occult realm. Compare
Missler’s “nonlocality” quantum mystical teachings with those of Noel Huntley,
PhD—a New Ager and quantum physicist:
In holistic systems, all parts are in resonance or coherence, which quantum regenerates the
whole… We are familiar with the philosophical statement, ‘As above, so below’ which is based
on the axiom of Hermeticism, ‘What is here is everywhere; What is not here is nowhere’. This
again is the holographic property… Leading physicist David Bohm stresses quantum
interconnectedness and unbroken wholeness…”418 [bold added]

Clearly Chuck Missler’s false teachings on “nonlocality” are derived from Eastern
Mysticism, not true biblical Christianity.
“For You [the Lord] have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are filled with influences from the east… (Isaiah 2:6)”

135 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The TAO of PHYSICS & Eastern Mind Change
In 1975, Fritjof Capra—a research physicist and Eastern mystic—wrote The Tao of
Physics (TOP): An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and
Eastern Mysticism419 which went on to become a New Age classic.420

Exhibit: Capra’s 1975 landmark New Age book421

To underscore the seriousness of this matter, compare the following excerpts
from Capra’s book with Missler’s teachings on “nonlocality”:

Although the various schools of Eastern mysticism differ in many details, they all
emphasize the basic unity of the universe which is the central feature of their teachings.
The highest aim for their followers—whether they are Hindus, Buddhists or Taoists—is
to become aware of the unity and mutual interrelation of all things, to transcend the
notion of an isolated individual self and to identify themselves with the ultimate reality.
(TOP, pg. 24) [bold added]

The further we penetrate into the submicroscopic world, the more we shall realize how
the modern physicist, like the Eastern mystic, has come to see the world as a system
of inseparable, interacting and ever-moving components with man being an integral
part of this system. (TOP, pg. 25) [bold added]

The most important characteristic of the Eastern world view—one could almost say the
essence of it—is the awareness of the unity and mutual interrelation of all things and

136 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
events, the experience of all phenomena in the world as manifestations of a basic
oneness. All things are seen as interdependent and inseparable parts of this cosmic
whole; as different manifestations of the same ultimate reality. (TOP, pg. 130) [bold
added]

As we study the various models of subatomic physics we shall see that they express
again and again, in different ways, the same insight—that the constituents of matter
and the basic phenomena involving them are all interconnected, interrelated and
interdependent; that they cannot be understood as isolated entities, but only as
integrated parts of the whole. (TOP, pg. 131) [bold added]

Quantum theory forces us to see the universe not as a collection of physical objects, but
rather as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of a unified whole.
This, however, is the way in which Eastern mystics have experienced the world, and
some of them have expressed their experience in words which are almost identical
with those used by atomic physicists. (TOP, pg. 138) [bold added]

Quantum theory has abolished the notion of fundamentally separated objects, has
introduced the concept of the participator to replace that of the observer, and may
even find it necessary to include the human consciousness in its description of the
world. It has come to see the universe as an interconnected web of physical and
mental relations whose parts are only defined through their connections to the whole.
(TOP, pg. 142) [bold added]

Thus the mystic and the physicist arrive at the same conclusion; one starting from the
inner realm, the other from the outer world. The harmony between their views confirms
the ancient Indian wisdom that Brahman, the ultimate reality without, is identical to
Atman, the reality within. (TOP, pg. 305) [bold added]

Note Capra’s conclusion again: “Thus the mystic and the physicist arrive at the
same conclusion; one starting from the inner realm, the other from the outer
world. The harmony between their views confirms the ancient Indian wisdom that
Brahman, the ultimate reality without, is identical to Atman, the reality within.”
This is Hinduism. This is New Age. This is occult mysticism.
To accentuate this point, it must be pointed out that Marilyn Ferguson discussed
Capra’s ideas as integral to providing a framework for the New Age paradigm shift
in worldview:
Our discoveries about the startling nature of reality are a major force for change, undermining
common-sense ideas and old institutional philosophies. “The 1980s will be a revolutionary
time,” said physicist Fritjof Capra, “because the whole structure of our society does not
correspond with the world-view of emerging scientific thought.” 422 [bold added]
137 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Ferguson gushed enthusiastically about how Capra’s “new scientific knowledge”
could “revise the very data base on which we have built our assumptions, our
institutions, our life.” She predicted his views of “interconnected reality” would
become “the medium of our transformation.”423 Indeed, Capra’s work is now
recognized as foundational to the entire New Age eastern mindset. And now this
same New Age worldview has come into the
Christian church world.
Ferguson also cites New Age leader Gary Zukav
and his book The Dancing Wu Li Masters as
exemplifying the “emerging paradigm of physics.”
According to Ferguson, it is this “role of the mind
in constructing reality” that spells the death knell
for Western rational science, which needs a
“blood transfusion from Eastern thought.”424 She
wrote that Zukav’s book takes its title from the
Chinese expression for physics, wu li, which he
translates as “patterns of organic energy.”
Exhibit: Zukav’s 1979 book425
…Zukav said, we may be approaching “the end of science. Even as we continue to seek
understanding, we are learning to accept the limits of our reductionist methods. Only direct
experience can give a sense of this nonlocal universe, this realm of connectedness. Enlarged
awareness—as in meditation—may carry us past limits of our logic to more complete
knowledge. The end of conventional science may mean “the coming of Western civilization, in
its own time and in its own way, into the higher dimensions of human experience.”426 [bold
added]

Note that Eastern “meditation”427 is emphasized as a way to “experience” the
“higher dimensions” of this new science. Here we see a disturbing glimmer to the
reason evangelical authors are now promoting the same type of metaphysics
taught in Capra’s groundbreaking New Age treatise on Metaphysics. Could it be
because some influential leaders believe that evangelicals need to experience this
same “blood transfusion from Eastern thought” as Aquarian conspiracist Marilyn
Ferguson believed? Does this explain the tremendous rise of activities that
practice meditation, contemplation and other altered states of consciousness
within the church?

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Hermeticism & Metaphysics
These quantum mystical false teachings shared by Missler, Goswami, Talbot,
Bohm, Huntley, Capra, Ferguson, Zukav, and many others, are virtually identical
because they are drawn from the same Hermetic well (see Part 8). They are not
found in the Holy Scriptures.
As Dr. Huntley admitted in his statements cited earlier, these pseudo-scientific
metaphysical teachings are totally unbiblical; they are rooted in ancient
Hermeticism428 and have shoots which lead into the New Age, the occult,
Hinduism, Zen Buddhism, Taoism, and the I-Ching (Chinese book of divination).
This “nonlocal” New Age Metaphysics property—where nothing in the universe is
separate, but interconnected—is the essence of the monistic, occult maxim: “as
above, so below”; all is One (divine). It also includes many other seductive
quantum teachings such as hologram realities (explored in Talbot’s The
Holographic Universe), and fractals429 —which are fractured parts of the whole
that cannot be separated from the “nonlocal” system: all is One (i.e., god).
For example, note once again Missler’s adaptation
of David’s Bohm’s views in his Beyond Perception
briefing package:
One of Bohm’s most startling suggestions is that the
tangible reality of our everyday lives is really a kind of
illusion, like a holographic image. Underlying it is a deeper
order of existence, a vast and more primary level of reality
that gives birth to all the objects and appearances of our
physical world in much the same way that a piece of
holographic film gives birth to a hologram. Bohm calls this
deeper level of reality the implicate (“enfolded”) order, and
he refers to our level of existence as the explicate
(unfolded) order. [pg. 21, bold added]
Exhibit: Bohm’s ‘nonlocality’ principle & the ‘Butterfly Effect’ 430

This passage is also found in Missler’s Cosmic Codes on page 340. Sadly, the
identical, word-for-word text was actually plagiarized from Talbot’s The
Holographic Universe on page 46.

139 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
New Age author Michael Talbot, from whom Missler extracted his Bohm quotes
and ideas, adds this unsettling insight (conspicuously not mentioned by Missler)
regarding Bohm and his “nonlocal” and “holographic” ideas:
Numerous ancient thinkers also appear to have recognized, or at least intuited, this aspect of
reality [Bohm’s nonlocal/holographic beliefs] … After a shamanic vision of the subtler levels of
reality the semimythical ancient Egyptian prophet Hermes Trismegistus employed a slightly
different phrasing and said that one of the main keys to knowledge was the understanding that
“the without is like the within of things; the small is like the large.” The medieval alchemists,
for whom Hermes Trismegistus became a kind of patron saint, distilled the sentiment into the
motto “As above, so below.” In talking about the same macrocosm equals microcosm idea the
Hindu Visvasara Tantra uses somewhat cruder terms and states simply, “What is here is
everywhere.”431 [bold added]

Talbot recorded these ideas above from two other sources he cited in The
Holographic Universe: Brian Brown’s The Wisdom of the Egyptians and John
Woodruffe’s Serpent Power—hardly Christian themes. Christian author Warren B.
Smith underscores how these deceptive teachings are integral to the damnable
heresies of New Age Movement:
Through his questionable paraphrasing of the Bible, [Eugene] Peterson had already aligned
himself in a number of areas with New Age/New Spirituality teachings. One obvious example
was where he translated a key verse in the Lord’s Prayer to read “as above, so below” rather
than “in earth, as it is in heaven.” “As above, so below” was a term that I was very familiar with
from my previous involvement in the New Age Movement. This esoteric saying has been an
occult centerpiece for nearly five thousand years. It is alleged by New Age metaphysicians to
be the key to all magic and all mysteries. It means that God is not only transcendent — “out
there”— but He is also immanent — “in” everyone and everything.432 [bold added]

Smith also linked this occult maxim with the same type of New Age Metaphysics
espoused by Missler and other PPP adherents:
It seems clear to me that quantum physics, the “new” biology, and the “new” math of fractal
geometry are being used to provide a seemingly scientific basis for “proving” the “as above, so
below” contention that God is “in” everything. We are being asked to believe that all of
creation is an interconnected quantum field of energy and “oneness” that is “God.” 433 [bold
added]

Pastor Larry DeBruyn concurs with Smith and further connects these quantum
mysticism tenets to the occult realm:

140 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
This worldview assumes that reality, both immediate and ultimate, is oneness and love—one
soul, one world, as above, so below. Author Graham Hancock explains the latter concept:
“There seems to have been an ancient idea, as above, so below, to bring down the perfections
of the heavens to earth, and in someway [sic] unite heavens and earth.” According to Magee,
this Hermetic assumption is “the central tenet of Western occultism.” It is pantheistic
monism, a belief system which identifies the divine and nature to be one essence. In other
words, to a pantheist if the universe did not exist, God would not exist. So Alexander views that
Einstein and Jesus, though from different perspectives, function as revealers of a pantheistic
reality of oneness and love. This quantum-spiritual worldview is not Christian for in merging
heaven and earth, it denies the separateness of God from nature. Furthermore, in such a
quantum-love worldview mysticism becomes the only spirituality by which people can
experience oneness with nature.434 [bold added]

Pastor DeBruyn further exposes this esoteric “science” being employed by the
PPP leaders to redefine reality, the spiritual realm—and the Scripture:
In fact, and though they may be running ahead of themselves, New Age spiritualists have
already merged science and spirituality. The New Spirituality is taking the quantum leap from
physics to metaphysics, from what is below to what is above. 435 [bold added]

THE TRUTH:
New Age physics is metaphysics, and thus a “false science.” It is not based upon
objective analysis, but on the subjective and sensate. It interprets scientific
physics with its own metaphysical view of reality. It is an approach to truth that is
at odds with the definitive, declarative, and revealed Word of God. It is in fact a
rival, even a replacement, to the Bible that attempts to pry open the closed canon
to mystical revelations that lead only into occult realms.
Besides relying on corrupt writings for support (to be discussed in Part 7), PPP
adherents consistently rely upon New Age Metaphysics to explain and
accommodate their popular new eschatology – False Nephilim Eschatology,
Militant Prayer, and Quantum Mysticism—all of which encompasses hyperdimensional “star-gate portals,” pagan demonology (mythology), prophetic
divination (geomancy), Gnostic revelation, and other occult-related concepts
contrary to Scripture. The PPP false doctrines are firmly undergirded with dark
and forbidden lore and mystical pseudoscience posing as biblically substantiated
truth.436

141 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Pastor Larry DeBruyn has continued to warn against the same New Age Physics
promoted by Emergent leaders. His admonishment extends to the Metaphysical
(Quantum) Mysticism taught by PPP leaders. It attempts to point those caught up
in these end-time deceptions back to the Lord Jesus Christ:
Scripture warns believers against the veneration of the creation, against allowing a philosophy
of human consciousness to intrude upon the worship of the Christ. To the Colossians Paul
wrote:
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments (Greek, stoicheia) of the world,
and not after Christ.
(Emphasis Mine, Colossians 2:8, KJV)
…Thus, one scholar understands that “rudiments” can philosophically and spiritually refer to
“the veneration of the divinized elements....” If this be the case, then Paul is warning Christian
believers not to allow something like a quantum physical worldview to corrupt their worship
of Christ, Who is the One who created everything in the past, and Who is the One who
controls everything in the present (Colossians 1:16-17). As to both its origin and endurance,
the universe depends upon the Christ of God who “upholds all things by the word of His power”
(Hebrews 1:3). So the apostle might be paraphrased to be warning, “Beware lest any man take
you captive after the elementary particles of the world, and not after Christ.” Christian
spirituality should be based upon the Word, not upon the world; upon Christ, not quarks.437

“And He [Christ] was saying to them,
"You are from below, I am from above;
you are of this world, I am not of this world” (John 8:23)”

A New Old Syncretism
Who would have ever thought that the evangelical world would come to this?
Dabbling in the occult and being entertained by images and idols? The very sins
that the ancient Hebrews were severely charged by God to avoid, are now rushing
into the church at breakneck speed. As in the days of the Old Testament, the
creeping gradualism of accommodating small concessions to idolatrous practices
(New Age meditation, yoga, & the martial arts, etc.) and has grown and expanded
now to welcome the wholesale introduction of an ancient pantheon of gods and
goddesses from every heathen culture since ancient Babylon.
These old idols, to which the ancient Roman world had dedicated so many
temples,440 are now being revivified by their reintroduction in our modern era.
This has come into the culture via New Age astrology and science fiction. These
spectacular stories have been widely promulgated through comic books and
entertainment media for many decades. But now they are coming into the church
in the guise of an elaborately constructed end-time eschatology.441 This
eschatology claims to be superior to the old models because it is based on
gleanings from so-called sacred knowledge found in pagan myths and ancient
writings.
This reinvigorated ancient mythological idolatry is being marketed to the
evangelical world as a new and exciting eschatology by a group we have called the
Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) teachers. Endemic to their fabricated
eschatology is the staunchly forbidden and unwise practice of seeking
illumination outside of Holy Scripture. These teachers are now attempting to
merge pagan mythology with the Bible.442 They have not only sought counsel
from pagan and occult sources, but have also turned faulty proof-texting into a
refined art, creating an erratic, erotic, and exotic mixture of blended spiritualities.

144 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Across our culture, and now in the church, mythology is being dished up on a new
platter of high-tech and graphic imagery. The old lifeless wooden and stone
statues (images/idols) are being re-cast into a new mold. Can these “gods” talk?
The surprising answer is “yes” – thanks to Hollywood acting, film photography
and digitalized imagery. It makes these images/idols more “potent,” especially in
the imagination. This quality doesn’t make them “real,” yet some prophecy
teachers are claiming that they are real. And it is this very claim, that they exist in
real time, that classifies them as pagan deities.
As you read the following account of how evangelicals are now adopting ancient
pagan mythology and attempting to incorporate it into biblical eschatology,
consider the following sober Scriptural warning about staying away from these
mythological gods and their images:
“Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them,
after that they be destroyed from before thee;
and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying,
‘How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.’
Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God:
for every abomination to the LORD, which He hateth,
have they done unto their gods;
for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire
to their gods (Deut. 12:30-31).”

Adopting Pagan Mythology
It is impossible to get to the end of a Tom
Horn book without being inundated with the
sordid lifestyles of the fabled ancient Greek
and Roman deities—whom Horn claims exist
today as real live creatures.
On page 9 of his 2007 book, Nephilim
Stargates: The Year 2012 and the Return of the
Watchers, Horn begins, “In Hesiod’s Theogony
we learn…”
145 | P a g e

He goes on to name these mythological deities, along with their numerous
exploits and sordid sinful activities. Here are a few he lists:

The Titans

Gaia

Uranus

Oceanus

Tethys

Mnemosyne

Themis

Hyperion

Iapetus

Atlas

Chronus

Aphrodite

Rhea

Hestia

Demeter

Hera

At the end of this tale, Horn writes:
The concept that sky, sea, and underworld are inhabited by “gods” who use the earth as a
mutual gathering ground, door, or path between dimensional realities is important and is
146 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
repeated in the mythos and holy books of cultures around the world, including, as we shall see
later, the Bible.446 [bold added]

Horn does not start with the Bible. He begins his book with pagan mythology.
Furthermore, the Bible does not teach that mythological “gods” even exist as real
creatures, let alone that they “use the earth as a mutual gathering ground, door,
or path between dimensional realities.” This is a heathen belief. Note this
description of Hesiod’s Theogony, the original source of Horn’s lineage of multiple
pagan “gods” purportedly in existence today:
The Theogony (Greek: Θεογονία, Theogonía, pronounced [tʰeoɡonía], i.e. "the genealogy or
birth of the gods") is a poem by Hesiod (8th – 7th century BC) describing the origins and
genealogies of Greek polytheism, composed circa 700 BC. It is written in the Epic dialect of
Homeric Greek.
Hesiod's Theogony is a large-scale synthesis of a vast variety of local Greek traditions
concerning the gods, organized as a narrative that tells how they came to be and how they
established permanent control over the cosmos. It is the first Greek mythical cosmogony. The
initial state of the universe is chaos, a dark indefinite void considered as a divine primordial
condition from which everything else appeared. Theogony is a part of Greek mythology which
embodies the desire to articulate reality as a whole; this universalizing impulse was
fundamental for the first later projects of speculative theorizing.447 [bold added; italics in
original; links removed]

Exhibit: Hesiod’s Theogony – circa 700 B.C.448
147 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
“Speculative theorizing” describes exactly what Horn does in Nephilim Stargates.
But these mythical ideas did not come from God’s Word. Note the emboldened
sentence from the description of Hesiod’s Theogony above— “a narrative that
tells how they [the “gods”] came to be and how they established permanent
control over the cosmos.” Horn is leading readers headlong into ancient
mythology—including Greek, Roman, Babylonian, and Egyptian. He has given
heed to pagan myths just as the Bible warns of in the last days (1 Tim. 1:4; 2 Tim.
4:4).
Note how Horn incorporates heathen mythology and other ancient occult writings
into his science fictionalized eschatology:
Something alarming has been happening since the dawn of time, which has been recorded in
the history, holy books, and mythos of every great civilization. Ancient rabbinical authorities
including Septuagint translators and early church fathers understood it. Sumerians, Assyrians,
Egyptians, Greeks, the Hindus, the American Indians, and virtually all other civilizations
throughout history believed it. Beings of super intelligence sometimes referred to as “gods”
have since time immemorial descended through openings of sky, earth, and sea to interact
with this planet’s creatures. The behavior of these “unknowns” is recurrent and seems to
revolve around the need to harvest or manipulate molecular matter, especially human and
animal...449 [bold added]

Much of these mythological speculations about ancient astral visitors to earth
originated from Erich von Daniken and his notorious pseudoscience book Chariots
of the Gods. It was Chuck Missler who first popularized von Daniken’s discredited
theories in the evangelical church, re-writing them into his own end-time
prophecy scenarios in Alien Encounters.450 These unorthodox theories – popular in
UFO lore – teach that the ancient “gods” were space alien/fallen angels who
visited earth and inseminated it with their DNA, thus corrupting the human race
in the past, the present, and will do so again in the future. Missler attempted to
re-cast von Daniken’s space alien theories into a biblical mold by claiming that
these were responsible for the ancient “Nephilim” giants of Genesis 6. 451 By thus
corrupting Scripture we now have science fictionalized god-creatures roaming
about seeking to wreak havoc on end-time earthlings. This is the gist of the new
end-time prophecy teachings.
“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power
and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty (2 Pet. 1:16).”

148 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Chuck Missler also brings in ancient Greek mythology to re-interpret 2 Peter 2:45, verses dealing with God’s judgment upon the sinful angels who were “cast
down to hell.” He begins by what seems to be a scholarly exposition of Scripture:
…[Peter] ties that event to ‘the days of Noah.’ He not only confirms Genesis 6, but links it to
‘the days of Noah.’ The word Tartarus deserves some comment. The problem with this word is
it doesn’t appear anywhere else in the bible—but it does appear in the Greek literature. It’s
the Greek term for the dark abode of woe. It is the pit of darkness in the unseen world. It shows
up for example in Homer’s Iliad where Tartarus is ‘as far below Hades as the earth is below
heaven…’452 [bold added]

But what starts out as a Bible study based on Scripture quickly degenerates into
the study of a pagan myth:
Now if you study Greek—classic Greek mythology, you run into the Titans, these creatures in
the legends and myths. [Titans] were partly terrestrial; partly celestial. They rebelled against
their Father Uranus, and after a prolonged contest were defeated by Zeus and condemned—
where? Into Tartarus.453 [bold added]

Continuing in his talk, notice how Missler makes the startling claim that these
legends “embody the truth.” The truth?! He jumps from Scripture into the ancient
gods “Atlas and Hercules,” then turns around and suggests they were “Nephilim”
– and then he makes an incredible leap into UFO lore’s “Star People.”

Exhibit: Movie poster of Wrath of the Titans featuring the god Kronos454

149 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Do you see a parallel brewing here? I’m going to suggest to you that the legends of the ancient
Greeks embody the truth of what really happened in the past; that there were these strange
creatures generating hybrids that the Greeks called Titans. And we see Zeus in many forms.
We see Atlas and Hercules. Atlas and Hercules from Greek mythology were what would be
called in the Hebrew: Nephilim. Offering of an intermarriage between a god and a woman,
and, um, so these legends we obviously seen in the Sumer culture… [slide showing pagan
mythologies: Assyria, Egypt, Incas, Mayan, Gilgamesh, Persian, Greece, India, Bolivia, South Sea
Islands, American Indians]
Every one of these cultures… have legends on the Star People—these people that came, these
gods or demigods—whatever—came and cohabitated with women and produced hybrids.455
[bold added]

Exhibit: Graphic depiction of ‘Star People’ legend456

So, according to this esteemed Bible teacher, the Greek Titans were real? Is he
asking his Christian followers to believe that these “part terrestrial, part celestial”
mythological figures were really the Nephilim— “gods or demigods [who] came
and cohabitated with women and produced hybrids”? Astonishingly, YES! With an
updated science fiction twist!
The adoption of these pagan sources – combined with wild speculations, hidden
secret codes that only the elite can unlock, science fiction and UFO lore, and the
hyping of crisis-ridden current events – has led Horn and Missler, along with their
other PPP adherents, further into this end-time fantasyland. How far out can it
go? These teachers actually birthed a modern mythology that claims a space alien
outpost exists on the planet Mars, a fact which we documented in Part 5 of this
150 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
book, titled “Nephilim are from Mars: Fallen Angels are from Krypton.” 457 Horn's
Nephilim Stargates actually proposes:
…Beings of super intelligence sometimes referred to as “gods” have since time immemorial
descended through openings of sky, earth, and sea to interact with this planet’s creatures. The
behavior of these “unknowns” is recurrent and seems to revolve around the need to harvest or
manipulate molecular matter, especially human and animal. The unknowns appear to come to
us from nearby planets and/or dimensions and may actually be represented by the Watchers
of Apocryphal texts. As mankind expands beyond earth, eons-old ruins of artificial structures or
active sites belonging to these ultraterrestrials could be discovered. Such is rumored to exist
on Mars and on the dark side of the moon…458 [bold added]

Related to this discussion, we raise a question: Is it just a coincidence that
Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Bill Gates has included Hesiod’s Theogony in
a nationalized high school curriculum he’s funding called Common Core? 459 The
timing seems significant. The study of mythology has been part of a Classical
Education for thousands of years, especially to understand Western civilization,
the arts and sciences. But since the education reform agenda was launched
several decades ago, there has been an effort to reintroduce ancient pagan
mythology to children as an actual religion.460 Will children be taught to believe
that these ancient gods and goddesses are REAL creatures?461 We note that the
later Roman empire was characterized by an “allegoric interpretation of the
ancient mythology which undeified the greater part of the heathen Pantheon.” 462
In other words, stories of the gods and goddesses became like fairy tales – the
gods were no longer worshipped as deities; they were just stories. Except to the
genuine pagans who still kept up their idolatrous rites and rituals.
However, the Roman emperor known as “Julian the Apostate” attempted to reintroduce paganism to the Roman world after Christianity had become
widespread. Julian tried to bring the gods back to life and re-instituted ancient
rituals, rites and sacrifices to the gods across the empire. One historian noted
that Julian's resultant spiritual mixture created a hybrid “eclectic paganism”463
based on “high speculative and imaginative doctrines,” 464 all leading to a gradual
degradation of Christianity into “superstition.” He described in vivid detail the
demonic basis of this syncretism and how it compromised the Christian faith:
The heathen Theurgy,465 even in its purest form its dreamy intercourse with the intermediate
race of dæmons, was poor and ineffective compared with the diabolic and angelic agency which
became more and more mingled up with Christianity. Where these subordinate dæmons were
151 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
considered by the more philosophic pagan to have been the older deities of the popular faith, it
was rather a degradation of the ancient worship; where this was not the case, this fine
perception of the spiritual world was the secret of the initiate few rather than the all-pervading
superstition of the many. The Christian dæmonology, on the other hand, which began to be
heightened and multiplied by the fantastic imagination of the monks brooding in their
solitudes, seemed at least to grow naturally out of the religious system. The gradual darkening
into superstition was altogether imperceptible, and harmonized entirely with the general
feelings of the time. Christianity was a living plant, which imparted its vitality to the foreign
suckers grafted upon it; the dead and sapless trunk of paganism withered even the living
boughs which were blended with it by its own inevitable decay. 466

Evangelical postmodern prophecy leaders are promoting this very same mixture.
They want people to think these ancient pagan gods and goddesses are real living
creatures. Pagan demonology and heightened fantastic imaginations contribute
to give their syncretistic eschatology some extra pizzazz.

THE DIVINE COUNCIL—PPP Style

[The Divine Council is] the heavenly host,
the pantheon of divine beings who administer
the affairs of the cosmos.
All ancient Mediterranean cultures had some
conception of a divine council.
The divine council of Israelite religion,
known primarily through the psalms, was
distinct in important ways.
~ Michael S. Heiser 467

“The Divine Council” 468

The adoption of pagan mythology has been accompanied by aggressive attempts
to integrate and infuse it throughout the Bible, resulting in new interpretations
that are far outside the plain meaning of the Text. This unholy mixture has led
Tom Horn and other Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) teachers to establish
152 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
and teach false doctrines such as ‘The Divine Council’ – a concept which has been
popularized and perpetuated by Dr. Michael Heiser, Christian author, conference
speaker, and scholar of ancient languages (see Part 3 & Part 5).469 Contorting the
Scripture and greatly diminishing God’s sovereignty, this false teaching says that
after the Tower of Babel, the Lord God gave His sovereignty over to “divine
beings” who now rule the world or cosmos. (This is why hyper-spiritual warfare
prayer strategies have been concocted to battle these unseen deities (see Part
3).470
The ancient pagans also taught this spirit world theology, especially in the context
of occult divination and astrology:
Below this primal Deity and his glorious image [the Sun, ed.] there was room for the whole
Pantheon of subordinate deities, of whom, in like manner, the stars were the material
representatives, but who possessed invisible powers, and manifested themselves in various
ways, in dreams and visions, through prodigies and oracles, the flights of birds, and the signs in
the sacrificial victims.471 [bold added]

Tom Horn’s book, Zenith 2016: Did Something Begin in the Year 2012 that will
Reach its Apex in 2016? is a repackaging of his old 2009 book Apollyon Rising
2012. The book was reissued and updated because the pagan god Apollo failed to
materialize as Horn predicted (prophesied?) in 2012. Horn’s explanation of “The
Divine Council” from this book sheds further light on his adoption and promotion
of ancient mythology:
In the study of the Divine Council—the pantheon of divine beings or angels who currently
administer the affairs of heaven and earth—experts typically agree that, beginning at the
Tower of Babel, the world and its inhabitants were disinherited by the sovereign God of Israel
and placed under the authority of lesser divine beings that became corrupt and disloyal to God
in their administration of those nations (Psalm 82). According to the theory, these beings
quickly became worshipped on earth as gods following Babel, and because these angels, unlike
their human admirers, would continue on earth until the end of time, each “spirit” behind the
pagan attributions was known at miscellaneous times in history and to various cultures by
various names. This certainly agrees with the biblical definition of idolatry as the worship of
fallen angels, and means the characterization of such spirits as Jupiter, Justice, Osiris, and Isis
can be correctly understood to be titles ascribed to distinct and individual supernaturalism.
The spirit behind Apollo was thus a real personality; Osiris actually lived, and still does…472
[bold added]

153 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM

Exhibit: Horn’s 2013 book473

Notice that Horn claims that Apollo was “a real personality” and that “Osiris
actually lived, and still does (see Part 4).” Does Horn actually believe that these
ancient mythological idols are real and still alive?! The supposed “experts that
typically agree” with this extreme adoption of pagan mythology – especially in
their attempt to make it seem compatible with Christian orthodoxy – are not
mentioned here. However, Horn does cite Heiser as a source of this teaching in
his other writings.474
Reality check: Angels are NOT “gods” or “divine beings.” They are the heavenly
hosts—messengers of Elohim Who created them to serve Him and humanity
(Gen. 19:15; 32:1; Isa. 37:16; Ps. 78:25; 78:49; 91:11; 103:20; 104:4; Matt. 24:31;
25:31; 26:53; Mk. 1:13; 1 Pet. 3:22; Heb. 1:6-7; 1:14; 2:2; 2:5; 12:22; 13:2, etc.). In
the end, God alone will deal with the angels that rebelled against His authority.
(As a side note, it is interesting that PPP leader Chuck Missler is on the Board of
Directors of the International Standard Version (ISV) of the Bible in conjunction
with his business partner William Welty. Coincidently, the ISV translates the “sons
of God” in Genesis 6:2 and 6:4 as “divine beings”475).
Fellow PPP guide Gary Stearman, author and host of Prophecy Watchers (formerly
of Prophecy in the News), is also perpetuating these same teachings. By twisting
154 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
certain Bible verses and engaging in imaginative speculation, Stearman tries to
make the case that “Zeus” and “Apollo” are “real.” Note that he even refers to
“modern stories” as a source for his fantasy. Modern stories?! What could these
stories be other than science fiction tales?
Myths, legends and modern stories all testify that upon this earth, there were once powerful
and evil superhuman beings who took great pleasure in tormenting mankind. They were the
old gods of tradition and folklore, Zeus, Apollo and their ilk. Were they merely figments of
human imagination, or were they real? Are these the entities the Bible identifies as fallen
angels? Many Christians do not want to believe that these demigods of old were real. With the
development of the early church, pagan deities faded into the forgotten pages of folklore. Yet
the Bible refers to "sons of God," "fallen angels," and other demonic creatures who once tried
to subvert humanity. They perfectly fit the description of the old demigods. Perhaps they were
real, and are now either locked up or restrained. Will these fallen angels return? The Bible says
that in the tumultuous days of the Tribulation Period, they will return. 476 [bold added]

And so these deceptions proliferate through popular authors, speakers, radio and
television hosts, and Bible teachers. Like unwanted dandelions in an untreated
lawn, their ugly roots spread throughout the yard in a seemingly bright array of
yellow—until the flower fades revealing an ominous sea of feathery white seeds
that are cast by the wind to perpetuate the unrelenting cycle of mass deception.
In similar manner, the mythology craze in Christendom is carried on by new
growth. New faces are beginning to pop up in the marketplace in order to pass on
these deceptions to the next generation.
For example, newcomer Christian author and speaker, Peter D. Goodgame,
incorporates this intoxicating mythological “Divine Council” heresy into a 363page book (published by Tom Horn), The Second Coming of the Antichrist (SCA)—a
book that promotes the return of the reincarnated pagan god Apollo (aka
Nimrod/Osiris/Nephilim) as the biblical Antichrist (see Part 4)477:
When God decided to intervene at the Tower of Babel, He did so in agreement with a group of
beings that surrounded Him: “And the Lord said…Go to, let us go down, and there confound
their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Genesis 11:6-7). Who was
God speaking to? The extra-biblical book of Jasher explains that God was speaking to a
particular group of angels who surrounded Him: …What we see is that the decision to break up
Nimrod’s empire was made in a ‘divine council’ setting, which included God and this group of
angels who were part of God’s chain of command that was particularly responsible for
watching over the earth... God descended to the earth to break up Nimrod’s empire along with
155 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
this specific group of seventy angels…478 [bold added; underscore and italics in original] (SCA,
pp. 108-109)

Note in the above example that Goodgame resorts to using the extra-biblical Book
of Jasher (like fellow PPP author Rob Skiba in Part 4) to prop up his speculations
about a “divine council” of “seventy angels.” Below Goodgame further
embellishes his story, by claiming that the ancient “gods” were “real”:
At the Tower of Babel, the entirely of humanity was divided up into tribes and eventually
seventy tribes emerged who were ‘allotted’ into the hands of seventy angels. These are the
‘sons of God’ who Deuteronomy refers to as the ‘foreign gods’ who are distinct from the ‘Most
High,’ who Himself chose Israel as His own nation. The ‘gods’ of the pagan nations that
surrounded Israel were real. The Tower of Babel event did not just mark the emergence of
different languages; it also marked the very beginning of polytheistic paganism as the dominant
form of worship throughout the world.479 [bold added, italics in original] (SCA, pp. 110-112)

Exhibit: Artist’s depiction of the Tower of Babel 480

Employing the corrupted DNA thesis of the PPP teachers, Goodgame then says
that ancient Nimrod was a “half-god.”
The word apotheosis means ‘to become a god.’ We already know that the seventy angels who
descended at the Tower of Babel became worshipped as the ‘gods’ of the Gentile nations. We
have also identified the god Enki as the historical Satan, the ultimate leader of these angels. If
Nimrod was the son of Satan/Enki then this means that he was ‘half-god’ through his genetic
156 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
father. So from the very beginning, due to his size, strength, cunning, and influence, Nimrod
was undoubtedly worshiped as a “god.” 481 [bold added, italics in original] (SCA, pg. 155)

Notice above that none of this teaching came from the story about the Tower of
Babel is recorded in God's Word, the Bible. By twisting still more Scripture, these
men also claim that the Garden of Eden was [is?] a meeting place for this
imaginary “divine council.” Observe how God is degraded to a mere co-ruler. Isn't
this fact alone a dead giveaway that something is very amiss in these teachings?
In Ezekiel 31, Asshur is portrayed as a great cedar of Lebanon that is even greater than the
“trees of Eden, in the garden of God.” The Garden of Eden, as Michael S. Heiser has shown...
was also the “meeting place of the divine council” where God would meet with the other “sons
of God” who participated with Him in ruling over the earth…482 [bold added] (SCA, pp. 263264)

Next, apparently based on the wacky and pseudoscientific theories that the Great
Pyramid of Giza was built with the help of space aliens (see Part 5), Goodgame
surmises that it was constructed by “seventy Kosmokrator angels” as “portrayed
in Masonic representations”:
So, once again we are brought back to the Great Pyramid of Giza… that was designed according
to the layout of the constellation Orion, the Great Hunter in the sky. As we have endeavored to
show, Osiris is none other than the biblical Nimrod, the “mighty hunter before the Lord,” whose
death brought about the division of his global empire into the hands of the seventy
Kosmokrator angels who descended from heaven to begin their era of authority over mankind.
The seventy angelic “world powers” eventually came to be understood as seventy-two, which
is the number of “conspirators” who aided Set/Typhon in the murder of Osiris. It is also the
number of angels associated with the Kabbalistic Shem ha Mephoresh, and the number of
stones portrayed in Masonic representations of the Great Pyramid. 483 [bold added, italics in
original] (SCA, pg. 326)

Besides occult Freemasonry, Goodgame has also tied his teaching of the Divine
Council to Jewish mysticism, which he reveals in a separate lengthy online article
written in 2004, “The Divine Council and the Kabbalah.” 484 The PPP inspiration for
Goodgame’s mythological soup includes both Horn and Heiser—who trace their
teachings back to the ancient pantheon of gods and goddesses.

“And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall be turned unto fables (2 Tim. 4:4).”

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
THE DIVINE COUNCIL—Pagan Style
Heiser’s “Divine Council,” wholeheartedly embraced by PPP
leaders, is actually a modern twist
to ancient pagan myths. Heiser
simply dresses it up in biblical
attire.485 What is The Divine
Council?
A Divine Council is an assembly of
deities over which a higher-level god
presides… The concept of a divine
Council of gods before the Deluge 486
assembly (or council) is attested in the archaic Sumerian, Akkadian, Old Babylonian, Ancient
Egyptian, Babylonian, Caananite, Israelite, Celtic, Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman and
Nordic pantheons. Ancient Egyptian literature reveals the existence of a “synod of the gods”.
Some of our most complete descriptions of the activities of the divine assembly are found in
the literature from Mesopotamia. Their assembly of the gods, headed by the high god Anu,
would meet to address various concerns. The term used in Sumerian to describe this concept
was Ukkin, and in later Akkadian and Aramaic was puhru.487 [bold added; other formatting
removed]

As King Solomon wisely admonished, “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecc.
1:9-10). These Divine Council concoctions have very old pagan roots – roots not
generated from the Christian God or the Holy Bible. In order to understand this
concept of the “divine council” evangelicals are finding themselves lured into
deeper and deeper occult lore. This dark world of the occult is a never-ending
spiral of decoding mysteries and unlocking secret hidden messages. It is a
shrouded path that promises deeper and more enhanced spiritual “knowledge.”
Taking this spiritual journey does not lead to redemption by the shed blood of
Jesus Christ on the Cross. It is a false way, not the true Way of Jesus, who said “I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me
(John 14:6).”
"Through Thy precepts I get understanding:
therefore I hate every false way (Psalm 119:104).”

158 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
"For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie,
and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain:
therefore they went their way as a flock,
they were troubled, because there was no shepherd (Zech. 10:2).”

Compounding the deception is the sad fact that these idolatrous myths have now
been adapted and tweaked to satisfy modern carnal appetites. We shouldn’t be
surprised. The original tales about gods and goddesses were lewd, lascivious,
incestuous, and carnal. Their worship was accompanied by pagan rituals such as
animal or human sacrifices, chantings, repetitive prayers, expiations, lustrations,
severe trials, fastings, purifications, and rites of initiation too gruesome and vulgar
to discuss.488 Our postmodern church age is characterized by bringing back these
pagan practices.

THE DIVINE COUNCIL—Marvel Comics Style
The PPP teachers have been accommodating
popular culture’s thirst for all things
pagan. These leaders have tragically missed
a great chance to share the Gospel of
salvation message, telling the world about
Jesus Christ Who defeated Satan at the cross
— the real Son of God Who is quickly coming
back to earth in the clouds with great power
and glory! (Mark 13:26). Instead the
prophecy leaders' mythological cocktails
teach a nearly identical message to what
Hollywood is dishing up. Here is once such
Hollywood's concoction:
Exhibit: the 2013 movie Thor489
The Nordic god Thor was featured in a Hollywood action movie sequel in 2013,
acted by an all-star cast.490 It is a perfect example of the new “eclectic
paganism”491 invading our culture (and the church). It might surprise some that
Marvel Comics creators have their own version of The Divine Council:
159 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The Council of Godheads, also known as the Council Elite, represents a union of the leaders (or
their delegates) of the various pantheons of gods on Earth. There are over twenty separate
tribes or races (pantheons) of superhuman beings associated with Earth claiming to be gods.
The vast majority of these pantheons trace their origins back to Gaea, one of the Elder Gods
(such as Chthon and Set) who materialized on Earth before any other life had appeared there.
The other Elder Gods degenerated into demons, preying upon each other.492 [bold added]

Given the immense creative license and profit incentive involved here, there are
no limits or boundaries to contain these pagan legends to their ancient moorings.
Note these telling observations from the Marvel Comics Wikipedia page on “The
Council of Godheads”:
Each member of the Council possesses magical and cosmic power on a scale comparable to
even the Elder Gods and certain cosmic beings, far dwarfing that of a Sorcerer Supreme’s
might. The Abrahamic God seems to be absent either because He is omnipotent, omniscience
[sic], and omnipresent and frightens the others or because He refuses to ‘play ball’ with the
other gods.493 [bold added]

In this same vein, the PPP promoters of these same dark myths betray a complete
lack of regard for the sovereign God of the Bible. They have invented their own
science fiction pantheon of mythological demi-god figures that battle with each
other in the Nephilim multiverse (holographic universe). 494 Believing these godcreatures possess elite knowledge and special powers, they teach that these
deities need to come to the aid of an inept God, who has apparently lost control
of the cosmos and needs help from them. In these sorry teachings, the PPP
adherents are not really looking for Christ to return—but instead they are
watching the skies for the return of the Greek god Apollo (Nimrod/Osiris/
Apollyon).495 (See Part 4).
Yet the Scriptures do not urge us to look for an ancient god, nor the Antichrist,
nor sci-fi heroes, but instead warn us that Christ will appear on a day that we are
not looking for Him (Matthew 24:50), and says we should be “looking for the
blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ
(Titus 2:13).”

Mythology Goes to Church
Films and TV shows have showcased science fiction since the early days of Flash
Gordon. In this entertainment media they created a captive audience that loves to

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
be titillated with exotic sci-fi scenarios. But recent sci-fi thrillers such as The
Avengers series (originating again from the Marvel Comics genre) include these
mythological gods as main characters. For example, as seen in the movie poster of
Thor in the subsection above, these films treat the old Nordic god as though he is
a real extraterrestrial god with superhuman powers.

Exhibit: Rob Skiba's DVD jacket496

Christian filmmakers have been quick to leap onto this bandwagon. They have
now brought these pagan myths to the movie and DVD marketplace. One of the
up-and-comers is Rob Skiba, author of Babylon Rising: and the First Shall be the
Last, The Archon Invasion: the Rise, Fall and Return of the Nephilim, and creator of
the film Seed the Series. Skiba is a script writer, director, producer, camera man,
editor, and actor.497 He has also produced a DVD presentation called “Mythology
and the Coming Great Deception” which was reviewed by Prophecy in the News
(PITN) writer Bob Ulrich. Note how Ulrich talks enthusiastically about the
Hollywood “buzz” in bringing back this ancient “Greek Mythology”:
Christmas arrived early for me this year in the form of two thought provoking DVDs from
Christian filmmaker Rob Skiba. We first met Rob at Future Congress in Branson; Tom Horn’s
spectacular prophecy conference, and we were impressed. As a professional filmmaker, Rob’s
material was a pleasure to watch; chock full of graphics, film clips and images that bri ng his

presentations to life. 180 minutes of pure excitement on 2 enlightening DVDs!
I felt like the proverbial “kid on Christmas morning” as I carefully unwrapped these discs. Our
ancient past holds many secrets that seem to be coming to light in our day; subjects hinted at
in the Bible, but not fully revealed.
How can anyone understand the Bible without a working knowledge of Genesis 6, the real
reason for Noah’s Flood? How can you understand the Antichrist if you don’t understand his
connection to Nimrod and Greek Mythology? Was Nimrod a Nephilim? ...Did he physically
alter his DNA?...
Hollywood is all a buzz these days, creating superheroes and bringing comic book titans back to
life. No doubt some of these “bigger-than-life” hybrids walked our planet many years ago.
Rob’s Mythology and the Coming Great Deception takes us back to the roots of Greek
Mythology...
Centaurs and satyrs? 28-foot Canaanite giants? Creatures like Horus, who had a human body
and a falcon’s head? Skiba even discusses whether Thor’s hammer actually existed!...498 [bold
added]

Centaurs and satyrs? Creatures like Horus? Thor’s hammer? Connecting these
pagan myths to the Nephilim? By now it is becoming quite evident that the
Nephilim giants, which Chuck Missler reinvented as space aliens in his 1997 UFO
book Alien Encounters, have become an integral part of this whole end-time
pagan sci-fi mythological scenario.

Exhibit: PPP authors mimicking Hollywood499

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
It appears as though Skiba is indeed “creating superheroes and bringing comic
book titans back to life” ala Hollywood. Notice how all of this is turned into a
mythologized modern-day science fiction. Fellow PPP author L.A. Marzulli, creator
of the Watchers DVD series, teaches similar ideas:
Centaurs, minotaurs, nymphs, fawns, are all familiar images from Greek mythology, but was it
just mythos? Were these so-called fictious creatures in fact the by-product of the fallen angels
who created the Nephilim, by cohabiting with the women of earth?500 [bold added]

Below are other recent Skiba video documentaries with similar UFO, Nephilim and
mythologized science fiction themes:

The Mount Hermon – Roswell Connection

Archon Invasion: And the Return of the Nephilim (Part 1)

Archon Invasion: And the Return of the Nephilim (Part 2)

Archon Invasion: 2045 and the Quest for Immortality

Babylon Rising: 322, Tetrads and the Time of Jacob's Trouble501

There is nothing remotely edifying or trustworthy in these heathen tales and
myths. These are not taught in the Scriptures. Horn, Missler, Heiser, Stearman,
Skiba, Marzulli, and many others who heed these Greek and Roman myths veer
further and further from the Word of God which warns believers to flee from
these deceptions. Sadly, like other PPP leaders, Skiba has also demonstrated his
low view of Scripture in favor of apocryphal and even occult writings (see Part
4).502
Tragically, like the Marvel Comics creators, these prophecy paradigm leaders
continue to build upon their mythological ideas and extra-biblical gleanings—
including the purported ability of these evil demigods to tamper with human DNA
(see Part 8).503 Tom Horn first marketed these captivating deceptions to the
evangelical world through his prolific writings, especially his 2010 book, Forbidden
Gates. Notice the common themes:
Besides apocryphal, pseudepigraphic, and Jewish traditions related to the legend of the
Watchers and the “mighty men” born of their union with humans, mythologized accounts tell
the stories of “gods” using humans and animals to produce heroes or demigods (half-gods).
When the ancient Greek version of the Hebrew Old Testament (the LXX or Septuagint) was
made, the word “Nephilim”—referring to the part-human offspring of the Watchers—was
163 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
translated gegenes, a word implying “earth born.” This same terminology was used to descri be
the Greek Titans and other legendary heroes of part-celestial and part-terrestrial origin, such
as Hercules (born of Zeus and the mortal Alcmena), Achilles (the Trojan hero son of Thetis and
Peleus), and Gilgamesh (the two-thirds god and one-third human child of Lugalbanda and
Ninsun). These demigods were likewise accompanied in texts and idol representation by halfanimal and half-human creatures like centaurs (the part-human, part-horse offspring of
Apollo’s son, Centaurus), chimeras, furies, satyrs, gorgons, nymphs, Minotaurs, and other
genetic aberrations. All of this seems to indicate that the Watchers not only modified human
dna [sic] during the construction of Nephilim, but that of animals as well, a point the Book of
Enoch supports, saying in the seventh chapter that the fallen angels “sinned” against animals as
well as humans.504 [bold added]

Exhibit: Example of a mythological Minotaur (hybrid creature) 505

Stop for a moment and think about what you just read. The sources for this new
interesting information come straight out of the occult! Notice the tactic of taking
a mythological account, or an ancient apocryphal book like the Book of Enoch, and
subtly trying to incorporate it into the Scripture. The leaven of mythology is being
mixed into the dough of prophecy. Absolutely none of these sensationalized
claims can be supported by the truth of plain Scripture. These are heathen fables
being brought in to corrupt God’s Word and deceive followers. And yet these
teachers are asserting that their syncretic teachings are “new truth” about the
last days.

164 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Should we be surprised that both Hollywood and Christian filmmakers are lured
into this captivating imagery and seeking a market to expand these fabricated and
energized mythological tales? We know from warnings in Scripture that idolatry is
a powerful addictive force. Guard your heart and your mind carefully so you are
not lured into these seductive fantasies! “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind (Mark 22:37).”
No wonder so many believe that these ancient pagan gods are “real.” This use of
film imagery, based on the high tech computerized visual enhancements
developed by Hollywood, have created a genre of science fiction that is becoming
a virtual reality for many. It creates a parallel spiritual reality, an alternative past
and future eschatological scenario, in which powerful god-creatures can roam in
and out of our universe at will, wreaking havoc on the plain simplicity of the
Gospel message with their dark and violent crimes. In other words, this visual
imagery of ancient mythological gods becomes both a tool and a vehicle of great
deception.

Entertaining Carnal Myths
Intrigued by an interview he did with Tom
Horn on Forbidden Gates, J. Michael Bennett,
Ph.D, former host of the radio program Future
Quake,506 wrote a 58-page chapter for Horn’s
2011 book Pandemonium’s Engine titled,
“Nimrod: The First (and Future) Transhuman
‘Super Soldier’ (see Part 2).”507 Horn’s book
title and jacket was adopted from the ancient
erotic Greek god, renowned for his sexual
prowess, Pan.508 Pan served as the inspiration
for the original New Age Harmonic
Convergence in 1987 which celebrated the
supposed return of the spirits of all of the
ancient gods and goddesses.509
Exhibit: A depiction of the Greek god Pan on Horn’s book cover 510

165 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Bennett, like Horn, turns his readers away from God’s truth and headlong into
“the Myth of Isis and Osiris” (depicted in Horn’s offensive graphic below)511:
Let’s briefly depart from the Biblical record, and consider details of the most famous myth in all
of recorded history—the Myth of Isis and Osiris. Many of such ancient myths incorporate
superstitions, fables, and exaggerations, with conflicting and contradictory details that reflect
political realities at a given time and place. They also often provide a “devil’s view” of history,
where the perspectives and roles of God and the Adversary, and their spiritual and human
henchmen are reversed in their roles or motives, going back to the actions of the gods Enki and
Enlil in ancient Sumeria. However, they [ancient myths] can also preserve nuggets of ancient
knowledge and history, even if distorted by time and other causes, as well as give perspectives
of world events different from those expressed in the Bible, and even shed light on the agenda
of Satan himself.512 [bold added]

In other words, according to Bennett, the Bible is not sufficient. It must be
supplemented with pagan mythology in order to extract “nuggets of ancient
knowledge and history” not found in the Word of God—including new insights
“on the agenda of Satan himself.” Is it remotely possible that he or anyone else
can separate the “conflicting and contradictory details” of these tantalizing tales
from truth, including the “devil’s view” of history, apart from the Scripture? No!
These deceptive ideas lure countless souls into the Gnostic and occult realms, not
into God’s light.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Take careful note of Bennett’s fatal departure from Scripture in order to extract
“ancient knowledge” from lascivious myths—a practice admittedly inspired by
Tom Horn:
This ancient story revolves around a number of godlike siblings—Isis, Osiris, and Set
(alternatively spelled as “Seth”). Set is often described as being sterile or generally infertile,
necessitating his wife Nephthys to disguise herself as Osiris’ sister/wife Isis, to become
impregnated by him. Once discovered by Set, in rage he set a trap by inviting Osiris to a
banquet with seventy-two other gods as guests, who trick him into “test-fitting” a coffin-like
container given to him there as a gift, who then subsequently seal him inside, and drop him into
the sea. His wife, Isis, the goddess of magic, frantically searches for him, and finds his remains
and sarcophagus in the Phoenician city of Byblos, in Lebanon. After returning with his remains,
they are taken again by Set, who cuts them into fourteen or more pieces…, and disperses them
throughout the world.
Again, she faithfully reclaims these pieces, gathering all of them except his reproductive
phallus, which had been swallowed by a fish. Undaunted, she fashions an artificial replacement
phallus from gold, and conceives with him by hovering over his corpse as a vulture or kite, as
Osiris becomes the Lord of the Underworld… 514 [bold added]

Another troubling earmark of the current PPP heresies is an increasing fixation on
depraved, lewd, and debauched sexual themes as though they were cleverly
imbedded in Scripture by God and suitable for Christian consumption. Many of
the graphic images of the myriad of gods and mutant creatures examined in this
book—all readily available on the Internet—were either too violently explicit or
obscene to print here. Perverse immorality is central to their end-time occult false
eschatology, which the Bible calls idolatry (Col. 3:5). And, as we have noted
previously, it is a key characteristic of ancient pagan practices connected with the
worship based on mythology.
“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen (1 Jn. 5:21).”

The Truth About Idolatry
It was precisely this form of idolatry – Greek and Roman mythology merged with
eclectic paganism – that clashed with Christianity in the early church. Early
Christians saw mythology for what it truly is – idolatry. Many Roman emperors
sought to compel Christians to sacrifice to the ancient gods and goddesses on
altars in their temples. For refusing to perform these pagan rites, thousands of
believers lost their lives, and many were hideously tortured first. 515
167 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Yet we now see these same idols, the fabled Greek and Roman and other ancient
gods and goddesses, brought into the church as though they are real live
creatures!
Early Christians took the Bible’s warnings seriously to flee the sins of idolatry.
They willingly forfeited their earthly lives rather than have any appearance of evil
compromise with idolatry. How tempting it must have been for Maximus (whose
story is at the top of this book segment) to simply offer a sacrifice to the
mythological Diana of Ephesus rather than be beaten with sticks and then stoned
to death!
Scripture is filled with warnings that these idolatrous images are not real! In fact,
they are lies! But they do distort man’s thinking:

“Every man is brutish in his knowledge:
every founder is confounded by the graven image:
for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them (Jeremiah 10:14).”

“What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it;
the molten image, and a teacher of lies,
that the maker of his work trusteth therein,
to make dumb idols?
Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake;
to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach!
Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver,
and there is no breath at all in the midst of it
(Habakkuk 2:18-19).”

Old Bible commentators urged Christians to still beware of all these idols, myths,
legends, fables and images. Matthew Poole, remarking on the Hababbuk verses,
noticed that idols are “a teacher of lies” in whom there is “no breath at all”:
[W]hether graven or molten, yet all such images are but teachers of lies, Jer. 10:1,14. They
withdraw the mind from God, our true and only helper, and bewitch men to trust to idols, in
which there is no help, which ever proved lies to all that trusted on them…

168 | P a g e

…sottish men! In misery to hope that lifeless idols shall counsel and direct. What! Dumb, and
without sense, and yet teach!516 [bold added]

The Apostle Paul’s dying charge to Timothy was to “preach the word.” His urgent
command to his faithful son in Christ warned of a time after his earthly departure
when many would “turn away their ears from the truth” and “turn aside to
myths.” Surely that time has come.
“I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and
the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out
of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come
when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will
accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their
ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure
hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry (2 Timothy 4:3-4).”

Matthew Henry, writing in the 1700s, commented on these 2 Timothy verses:
People will turn away from the truth, they will grow weary of the plain gospel of Christ, they
will be greedy of fables [myths], and take pleasure in them. People do so when they will not
endure that preaching which is searching, plain, and to the purpose. Those who love souls must
be ever watchful, must venture and bear all the painful effects of their faithfulness, and take all
opportunities of making known the pure Gospel. 517 [bold added]
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God,
neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations,
and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image
made like to corruptible man, and to birds,
and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness
through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the Truth of God into a lie,
and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,
Who is blessed for ever. Amen
(Romans 1:21-25).”

to the Creator and have devised various methods and religious pathways in vain
attempts to morph themselves into immortal or divine beings—apart from the
Gospel of Salvation. All of them—from the ancient alchemists to the modern-day
Mormons, Masons, and Transhumanists—have failed (and will fail) miserably
because the God of the Bible has chosen only one way for sinful mankind to
achieve true immortality: through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of His
Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
In contradiction to the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, the “Postmodern Prophecy
Paradigm” (PPP) leaders (our term) have given hearty heed to these rebellious
ideologues. By giving credence to these machinations to undo the curse of sin,
these PPP teachers peddle new eschatology scenarios to unsuspecting Christians
under the guise of a postmodern scientific alchemical concoction:
Transhumanism (or Posthumanism).
The PPP proponents have capitalized on the foreboding and sensational elements
of the Posthuman movement by stirring up fear and dread with unbiblical
teachings that say the Transhumanists will not only succeed in their God-defying
schemes, but in doing so will threaten the extinction of the human race. This
faulty idea is found nowhere in Scripture.
While on the one hand the PPP-collaborators have loudly and publicly denounced
Transhumanism as wicked and unbiblical, on the other they’ve piggybacked their
own preposterous speculations, imaginations, suppositions, and conjectures onto
the Transhumanist movement to arrive at bizarre doctrines that are foreign to the
Scriptures. In so doing they give unintentional validity and credibility to the
Posthumanist’s ill-fated plots. They have mingled the immortal visions of the
Transhumanists with their own contorted false Nephilim doctrines and
apocalyptic end-time scenarios—which perilously do an end-run around the Book
of Revelation (not that they could ever succeed in undoing the truths of the divine
revelations in this book). These end-time teachers seem to be attempting to rewrite the future (eschatology), and in the process they are abandoning, ignoring
and contorting God's Word.

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
This segment will first examine Trans/Posthuman teachings and then analyze how
these popular teachers are altering evangelical beliefs and eschatology.

TRANSHUMANISM AS RELIGION
Dr. Martin Erdmann, who was a Senior Scientist at the University Hospital in
Basel, Switzerland, researching the ethical implications of Nanotechnology and
Transhumanism, explains this movement:
Transhumanist philosophy promotes the idea of human enhancement by technological
means. In its extremes, futuristic concepts like intelligence enhancement (up to
"superintelligence") using techniques like genetic engineering, psychopharmacology, anti -aging
therapies, neural interfaces, wearable/implantable computers, long-lasting internal organ
replacement, mental uploading and so forth are propagated from prominent positions like the
US Nanotechnology Initiative and the Oxford University philosophy department. Today, the
Oxonian don Nick Bostrom, the co-founder of the World Transhumanist Association, advocates
the “possibility” and even “desirability” of developing technology for the purpose of seeking
immortality and improving current mortal existence by enhancing “intellectual, physical, and
psychological capacities”. In order to make these revolutionary alterations, essentially
mechanizing the human species, transhumanists urge the human race to seize control of its
destiny, casting off the restrictive and pernicious dogmas of bygone eras, as they see it. It is “a
way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its
current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early
phase.”519 [bold added]

This generation has seen the burgeoning advances in technological medical
treatment—designed to save human life—or to allow individuals with
catastrophic injuries to see, hear, or become mobile again. Heart patients can live
longer with implanted devices and remote technologies that monitor both patient
and device from a medical center, electrodes can be implanted in the human
brain to treat epilepsy, and even the human face can now be transplanted on
gunshot victims. Scientists have created robotic limbs, synthetic knee and hip
joints, and have done experimentation with human DNA (genetics) to treat
disease. But none of these medical treatments will create a soulless human or
even a posthuman species. Leaping from the purely medical, scientific, and
technological enhancements mentioned above to the belief that mankind will no
longer be human or even immortal is to move into the realm of science fiction
and false religion.

172 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Before proceeding, a key distinction must be made. Behind the term
“enhancement” stands the Transhumanist assumption and aspiration, that
humans are generally defective and thus it is imperative for them to be improved
by technological gadgetry in order to advance in their evolutionary development,
ultimately to the point of giving up their humanness altogether. Providing a
person who has lost a limb to get a prosthetic arm or leg is not “enhancing” but
merely allowing him to live a more normal life. This is entirely different from what
is being done to healthy soldiers by altering their human constitution in such a
way that they will be able to hear and see much better than they could without
technological devices which have been implanted in their bodies. Thus, in order to
be able to differentiate between “enhancement” and “healing” a basic question
needs to be asked: Is the technological improvement done for “enhancing” a
perfectly healthy human being with a purpose which goes beyond leading a
normal human existence? Or is it being done to “heal” a disease or to help an
amputee to walk again?
In his insightful essay, “The Emerging Galactic Religion,” Dr. Erdmann briefly sums
up the intentions of those actively involved in this movement: “Transhumanism
takes human enhancement further, in morphing the vision of perfect man into a
human-machine complex properly called ‘posthuman’.”520 [bold added]
In the quest for perfection and immortality, devised on human terms, Dr.
Erdmann also pinpoints the ancient false religious resurgence cloaked in modernday Posthumanism:
In accord with age-long mystical quests, Transhumanists would argue that human beings can
loosen the chains of a mortal existence. Their religion is a new incarnation of Hermeticism. The
organic constitution of the human body is viewed as something to get rid of by merging it with
a machine. Katherine Haynes, a professor at the University of California in Los Angeles, states,
“Humans can either go gently into that good night, joining the dinosaurs as a species that once
ruled the earth but now is obsolete, or hang on for a while longer by becoming machines
themselves. In either case … the age of the humans is drawing to a close.” Stripped of its
pessimistic tone, Hayes' statement expresses the identical aspiration of Chinese alchemists in
their search for the “divine cinnabar,” or drinkable gold, which would produce eternal life. The
“Philosopher's Stone” was always seen as the elixir of immortal youth. 521 [bold added]

This “human enhancement” into a “human-machine complex” is designed to
transform mortal man into a supposedly immortal being. It is the scheming of
173 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
man in defiance of the Lord God. For some it includes the establishment of an
earthly utopia. As Dr. Erdmann documents the frenetic efforts of those who are
orchestrating the Posthumanism movement, he firmly concludes that their evil
plotting is hopelessly futile in light of God’s Word:
Considering all the odds, it is rather doubtful, if transhumanism will finally succeed in its stated
objectives to overcome human frailty and achieve paradise on earth. As a matter of fact,
viewed from a premillennial perspective, Christians know that the very opposite will happen.
The Bible calls the seven year period preceding Christ’s Second Coming “the Great
Tribulation”.522 [bold added]

In light of God’s sovereignty and human history, Dr. Erdmann offers this
admonishment:
In conclusion, we have shown that the concept of human enhancement by technological means
is not primarily a technological issue, but rather the newest incarnation of the ancient, deeply
religious endeavor “to become like God” – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and
immortal.
In view of the failure of mysticism (in the ancient and modern variations of Hermeticism,
Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, and Alchemy) to reach its goal of transcending human nature, we
should carefully examine the philosophical underpinnings of the transhumanist religion. We
should ask ourselves if we really agree with its understanding of human nature, before we
subscribe to its technical promises and accept the fundamental paradigm shift implied by the
concept of human enhancement technologies.523 [bold added]

In other words, Christians ought to shun the “paradigm shift implied” by
“transhumanist religion” because its “goal of transcending human nature” is a
flagrant rebellion against God that conflicts with His eternal plan of salvation. The
pro-Posthuman alchemists will NOT succeed with their evil plans because God will
not allow it. Thus neither will the PPP proponents succeed if they follow in the
footsteps of these Transhumanists, whether intentionally or not. The Christian
response to these errors is not to entertain, embrace, or heed their wicked
schemes—but soundly rebuke them in light of the Gospel:
Transhumanism calls for vigorous response from the church, though that response is currently
lacking. The critical realization is that while transhumanism aims at posthuman perfection
through technology, it misses the true nature of moral “perfection” (progressive sanctification)
in its rebellion against God. The transformation Christians should be seeking is not the physical
or psychological enhancement found in science, reason, or technology, but rather the
transforming work found only in God’s supernatural work through His Spirit (2 Corinthians
174 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
3:18). Romans 12:2 says, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the
renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and
acceptable and perfect.” This is the ultimate kind of transformation; and the only kind that can
be truly attained with God’s help in this world. The goal is the ultimate (post-judgment)
attainment of perfect humanity in heaven, not the attainment of full technological perfection
on earth, as a quasi divine being (Phil. 3:20-21).524 [bold and italic added]

“A MORPHOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION/
METAPHYSICAL SHIFT”
The main evangelical leader promoting the assumption that the Transhumanists
are right in their prognostications regarding the future, and even able to pull
them off, is best-selling Christian author and publisher Tom Horn. Horn assumes
Transhumanists will succeed in bringing to reality their futuristic scenarios if not
opposed. He takes the Transhumanists at their word, as if they tell the truth
about the future (this is the same frame of mind he exhibits in dealing with the
pronouncements of the esoterists; see Part 7). Horn opposes their objectives, but
gives credence to them as if they are true, by believing they are achievable if not
opposed. And thus he thinks the danger is real.
In 2010, Horn posted an “An Open Letter to Christian Leaders on Biotechnology
and the Future of Man” on his website. Note the “prophecy mongering” prevalent
in his introduction:
In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity
toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to
redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural
movement known as transhumanism, whose vision is supported by a growing list of U.S.
military advisors, bioethicists, law professors, and academics, intends the use of biotechnology,
genetic engineering, nanotechnology, cybernetics, and artificial intelligence as tools that will
radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—
as Joel Garreau, in his bestselling book Radical Evolution, claims—our very souls. The
technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a
future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications
under study now to make this dream a reality are being funded by thousands of government
and private research facilities around the world. The issues raised by human-transforming
science must be addressed by Christian leaders in a serious national conversation. To fail in this
responsibility may lead to the question "what does it mean to be human" being abdicated to a
frightening transhuman vision.525 [bold added]
175 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
There are dangers lurking behind Transhumanism for sure, but they are of a
different kind. If Horn were to take the Bible seriously, he would know that
some—perhaps even many—of the imaginary projections of the Transhumanists
will never be realized, no matter how much technology advances. The threat of
Transhumanism is only real to Horn because he buys into the lies of its
proponents. The whole dynamic of Horn's fear-mongering hinges on his
assumption and emphatic portrayal of the truthfulness of what Transhumanists
say. What if they are wrong? His whole argument would fall to pieces. There
would be no push behind his assertion that the forecasts of the Transhumanists
will come to pass; that it will be “a future dominated by this new species of
unrecognizably superior humans.”
Take another look at what Horn is saying in the quotation above:

astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of
humanity

far-reaching morphological transformation will redefine what it means to
be human.

Transhumanism will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our
physiology, our offspring—our very souls.

a metaphysical shift now underway forecasts a future dominated by this
new species of unrecognizable humans

human-transforming science must be addressed by Christian leaders in a
serious national conversation

failing this responsibility may abdicate to a frightening transhuman vision.

If this “metaphysical shift” that Horn claims is now underway—the “paradigm
shift” that the quantum mystics and New Agers also predict—then the unbiblical
idea will be realized; that at some magic moment a radical change in reality will
take place on planet earth that will “shift the paradigm” and usher in an upward
evolution of man as well as the en masse acceptance of an entirely new belief
system divorced from biblical Christianity. 526 Look at point 3 above. Horn seems
quite certain of it. He doesn’t use the word “might” but says “will.” And he
certainly doesn’t hint that this idea is so far out there that it is highly unlikely to
176 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
become reality. Nor does he point to the Scriptures to state unequivocally that it
WON’T happen, at least not in its ultimate intent.
This end-time whopper that “forecasts a future dominated by this new species of
unrecognizably superior humans” (who may not even possess human souls)—
propagated by this influential Christian author (who is also his own publisher)—is
not to be found anywhere in the Word of God. These teachings serve only to put
a scare in those who listen to these false notions, turning them away from the
truth. Seriously, considering the offensive subhuman tenets taught by the PPP
leaders—subhuman “offspring” (i.e., children!) of space aliens who mate with
human women exist on earth today—do you want them representing Christianity
in a global debate about what it means to be human?!

Horn’s Forbidden Gates book and Teacher’s Guide527

In 2010, Horn and his wife, Nita, authored and published a treatise on their
interpretation of Transhumanism called Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics,
Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, and Human
Enhancement Herald the Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare.528 On
page 266, using futurist and New Age language, the Horns said:
177 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
The need to parse information is changing so rapidly that we expect to hit the knee of the
techno-info curve sometime around the year 2012, followed by Singularity and critical mass.
As a result, the authors of this book have teamed with a group of ministries and intellectuals
and are currently organizing a new national conference, the World Congress on Emerging
Threats and Challenges (tentative conference title), the first of which is to be held on the third
week of July 2011 in Branson, Missouri. [bold added]

Exhibit: Graphic depiction of Horn’s teachings529

According to the Horns, the Transhumanist threats are so great as to produce a
technological “Singularity”530—something big and terrible was supposed to occur
suddenly “around the year 2012”—something so massive that it would reach
“critical mass” and shift the paradigm into their predicted dark and foreboding
posthuman future. The New Agers have taught these same things.531
These far-flung ideas birthed the Future Congress events. The first one was held in
2011 (as Horn noted); the second in Dallas in January of 2013. The “ministries and
intellectuals” seemingly on board with these “emerging threats and challenges”
included Tom Horn, Chuck Missler, Gary Stearman, Terry James, Jim Fletcher,
Doug Woodward, L.A. Marzulli, Rob Skiba, Hal Lindsey, Doug Hamp, Bill Salus, Cris
Putnam, Chris Pinto, Russ Dizdar, Peter Goodgame, et al. 532 Many of these same
speakers gathered at the annual Pike’s Peak Prophecy Summit in Colorado Springs
and at an Orlando Prophecy Summit—alongside Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, Joseph
Farah, Paul McGuire, and others. 533

178 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
It should be obvious by now that none of the predicted doomsday disasters
anticipated by the Horns (and many others) occurred in 2012—nor anything
coming close. To obscure this end-time dating failure, Horn published Zenith 2016
in 2013—which extends the 2012 end date by four years. 534 In light of this, it’s
appalling that other PPP-connected leaders are joining him in this 2016 hype.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves (Matt. 7:15).”

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto
you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the
LORD (Jer. 23:16).”

THE HUMAN ENHANCEMENT REVOLUTION (HER)
One of several new books published by Tom Horn
(Defender Publishing) in time to be sold at the first
Future Congress was a collaborative book with a
very long title: Pandemonium’s Engine: How the
End of the Church Age, the Rise of Transhumanism,
and the Coming of the Übermensch (Overman)
Herald Satan’s Imminent and Final Assault on the
Creation of God.535 Horn wrote the 71-page first
chapter entitled, “Pandemonium and ‘Her’
Children.” Here is the opening paragraph of
chapter one:
Exhibit: Horn’s 2011 book
Unbeknownst to most, a technological revolution is quietly developing in which mankind either
will soon experience utopian physical and spiritual transformation, or a dystopian nightmare
resulting in Armageddon. This is not “preacher” talk. [bold added] (PE, pg. 1)

Horn explains this “technological revolution” in the following excerpt:
The highest government and social think tanks in the world are currently focused on the
timeframe of “2012 and beyond” as an event horizon, during which the first baby-steps in what
179 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
has come to be known as the “Human Enhancement Revolution” will begin (behind which I see
a demonic spirit in the form of a technocratic goddess [i.e., the acronym for “Human
Enhancement Revolution” is “HER”]), quickly resulting in a technological, cultural, and
metaphysical shift dominated by a new species of unrecognizably superior humans—those
born of HER.[bold, red added] (PE, page. 1)

Again, Horn’s “Human Enhancement Revolution (HER)”—a “metaphysical shift”
dominated by a new species of unrecognizably superior humans”—is a
sensationally fabricated myth. This idea is totally absent from the Scriptures. The
remainder of this lengthy first chapter in Pandemonium’s Engine was a paper that
Horn submitted to the American Academy of Religion in 2011, a paper filled with
Horn’s dire prognosis for humanity and Nephilim False Eschatology. 536 Other
contributing authors for this book include: Gary Stearman, Noah Hutchings, Chuck
Missler, Sharon Gilbert, Carl Teichrib, Doug Woodward, Douglas Hamp, and Cris
Putnam. Putnam co-authored three best-selling books, Petrus Romanus, ExoVaticana, and The Final Roman Emperor, with publisher Tom Horn.537
On the heels of the first Future Congress
event in 2011, Gary Stearman, who was the
Prophecy in the News host at the time,
interviewed Doug Woodward on the subject
of Transhumanism. Both authors shared
insights from their writing contributions to
Horn’s book Pandemonium’s Engine. In this
brief exchange, quoted below, note how
they twist the Genesis record to say that
“the oldest prophecy in the bible” involved
Satan’s attempt to destroy the human
genome. Totally absent from the discussion
is Christ’s victory over sin and the devil—
and the redemption of mankind through
“the Seed of the woman”:
Exhibit: Horn audio series based on
Pandemonium’s Engine538
STEARMAN: “I think transhumanism goes back to Genesis 3:15 where God is having a
conversation with the man, the woman, and the serpent. And He says to the serpent, ‘I will put
enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy
head and thou shalt bruise his heel.’ This has been called the oldest prophecy in the bible. And
180 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
what’s the subject of that prophecy? Genome—a seed. It’s a battle of the human genome. The
battle is to preserve the human genome which Satan, the serpent, would like to destroy.”
WOODWARD: “As you point out in the book [Pandemonium’s Engine], when Satan, uh, or
human kind began to traffick in the possibility of manipulating, ah, the, not just the creation but
specifically the human genome, ah, it appears to draw special attention from God—whether
we’re talking about the Flood of Noah or Sodom and Gomorrah—which I think most of our
viewers might be surprised about—but as you point out, that as well was a unique opportunity
in which God brought a specific judgment about as a result.” 539 [bold added]

Genesis 3:15 is talking about the virgin-born Son of God who was “bruised on the
heel” at Calvary to redeem a sinful humanity (Gal. 3:16). When the Lord Jesus
Christ went to the Cross, He crushed Satan’s head, bringing an end to his
authority and power over believers (1 Jn. 3:8). But both of these men are teaching
a form of the “serpent seed” heresy that we have written about previously. 540 In
essence, they are saying that Satan has the power to produce literal “seed” or
physical offspring. This Satanic DNA, they say, will thoroughly corrupt the human
genome inviting God’s judgment (i.e., like Noah’s Flood). They do not mention the
sinful human heart which is the reason the Bible gives for Noah's Flood: “God saw
that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination
of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Gen. 6:5)541
The teachings of the PPP leaders are often very sensational, but they go astray
from the simplicity of the Gospel message of salvation. The old Bible
commentator, Matthew Henry, eloquently explained the proper teaching of
Genesis 3:15—giving Christ the praise and glory that’s due Him:
3:14,15 - God passes sentence; and he begins where the sin began, with the serpent. The devil's
instruments must share in the devil's punishments. Under the cover of the serpent, the devil is
sentenced to be degraded and accursed of God; detested and abhorred of all mankind: also
to be destroyed and ruined at last by the great Redeemer, signified by the breaking of his
head. War is proclaimed between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. It is the
fruit of this enmity, that there is a continual warfare between grace and corruption, in the
hearts of God's people. Satan, by their corruptions, buffets them, sifts them, and seeks to
devour them. Heaven and hell can never be reconciled, nor light and darkness; no more can
Satan and a sanctified soul. Also, there is a continual struggle between the wicked and the
godly in this world. A gracious promise is here made of Christ, as the Deliverer of fallen man
from the power of Satan. Here was the drawn of the Gospel day: no sooner was the wound
given, than the remedy was provided and revealed. This gracious revelation of a Saviour came
181 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
unasked, and unlooked for. Without a revelation of mercy, giving some hope of forgiveness, the
convinced sinner would sink into despair, and be hardened. By faith in this promise, our first
parents, and the patriarchs before the flood, were justified and saved. [bold added]

Matthew Henry continues. Notice is given concerning Jesus Christ:
1. His incarnation, or coming in the flesh. It speaks great encouragement to sinners, that
their Saviour is the Seed of the woman, bone of our bone, Heb 2:11,14.
2. His sufferings and death; pointed at in Satan's bruising his heel, that is, his human
nature. And Christ's sufferings are continued in the sufferings of the saints for His name.
The devil tempts them, persecutes and slays them; and so bruises the heel of Christ,
who is afflicted in their afflictions. But while the heel is bruised on earth, the Head is in
heaven.
3. His victory over Satan thereby. Christ baffled Satan's temptations, rescued souls out of
his hands. By His death he gave a fatal blow to the devil's kingdom, a wound to the
head of this serpent that cannot be healed. As the Gospel gains ground, Satan falls.
[bold added]542

A NEW PARADIGM: THE HYBRID AGE
Another prominent Horn collaboration is The Hybrid
Age DVD with Chuck Missler. The disc jacket
features a digitized six-fingered hand symbolizing a
Nephilim hybrid—signifying their belief in an evil
angel/human entity. Note the description of this
DVD package which is available in Tom Horn’s
SurvivorMall.com:
In recent years, astonishing technological developments
have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward a far-reaching
transformation that promises in the very near future to
redefine what it means to be human.
Exhibit: Horn & Missler’s Hybrid Age543
As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to
challenge the Church in ways that are unprecedented. The destiny of each individual – as well
as the future of the family – will depend on the knowledge of this new paradigm and our
preparedness to face it head-on.544 [bold added]
182 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Did you catch that last sentence? “The destiny of each individual—as well as the
future of the family—will depend on the knowledge of this new paradigm …” This
is a thorough-going dystopian and earthbound horror script that is fully at odds
with the Bible. The “destiny of each individual” is contingent upon whether or not
they believe the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, not whether or not they are
prepared to slay modern-day dragons in posthuman form. The believer’s destiny
should be focused upon heaven, not earth—regardless of what transpires in the
future. Rather than flocking to the experts of “this new paradigm” readers should
instead flee to the refuge of the Lord God and to His Word.
Horn has produced a subsequent movie documentary to promote “this new
paradigm” featuring a video with Missler listed as one of its experts. The video
caption announces, “Inhuman: The Next and Final Phase of Man is Here.” Yet,
what does Scripture teach about this? Is mankind “evolving” upward—or inviting
God’s judgment due to sin and unbelief?

DNA WARFARE AND IMMORTALITY

Exhibit: DNA & the Physics of God 2013 summit546

The “Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm” teachers predict that this “inhuman next
and final phase of man” is already underway—being cooked up in medical
laboratories worldwide—orchestrated by demonic entities. Those who buy into
these diabolical and conspiratorial ideas would have to assume that the Lord God
has been impotent, unable to contain and squelch this pervasively sinister endtime plan—and that He forgot to write about it in Scripture. Prominent PPP
leaders gathered at the third annual Chicago Summit in 2013 to discuss these socalled evil plots in a forum called, “DNA Warfare & the Nephilim: The Search for
Immortality.” Bob Ulrich, formerly of Prophecy in the News, wrote a glowing
review of this conference, signaling to his readers that even the Bible prophets
missed the gravity of the current hour:
The safe, comfortable world of biblical eschatology has entered uncharted waters. While we
still rely on the writings of the prophets as our guidebook to the future, things are changing
rapidly in our 21st century world. The ancient prophecies still capture our attention, but there
are unsettling things taking place in laboratories and research centers all over the world.
Shocking things you just can’t imagine. 547 [bold added]

An online advertisement for the Chicago

version of the old Frankenstein horror
movie, not what you'd expect from a panel
of supposedly credible Bible experts:
The DNA of mankind is under attack like never
before. “Made in the Image of God” may soon be a
thing of the past as scientists race to improve upon
God’s Creation in laboratories and universities
across the world.

This one-of-a-kind Prophecy Conference includes 14 soul-stirring messages on 8 DVDs from
some of today's top bible prophecy speakers - they’ve come loaded with the latest info on
transhumanism, the Nephilim, Facebook, the future superman, DNA enhancement, super soldiers, cloning, hybrids, and ultimately, Satan’s plan for a man made in his own image, not
God’s! …
Enjoy 14 messages from some of the world’s brightest Christian and scientific minds, espousing
the concepts and secret plans that once filled the pages of science fiction books. Prepare to be
amazed at just how far scientists are pushing the DNA envelope in a quest for man's
immortality. No God? No problem! Who needs God when we can live forever? Yes, the world is
in for a big shock! The Days of Noah have arrived. 549

But this is hardly “soul-stirring” information. It is grievous. This PPP leaders' sci-fi
scenario is NOT “the Days of Noah” that Jesus referred to in Matthew 24 and Luke
17—a future time when the utter depravity of mankind’s rebellion toward God
will render it ripe for the judgments recorded in the Book of Revelation—just like
when God flooded the ungodly world of Noah’s day.
We have discussed these sci-fi heresies at length in previous articles. 550 Rather
than point readers, listeners, and viewers back to Jesus Christ our Savior, these
prophecy-mongers continue to twist Scripture, modern science, and credulity in
order to spread their seductively corrupt teachings. The Chicago Summit list of
“the world’s brightest Christian and scientific minds espousing the concepts and
secret plans that once filled the pages of science fiction books” include a now

TRANSHUMANISM GOES TO CHURCH
We have documented these Transhumanism heresies elsewhere, 552 but will recap some of the most outrageous false teachings from these prominent PPP
leaders in the following excerpts. Note also the close connection to PPP leader
Tom Horn. As you read these scary snippets below, note the utter lack of biblical
support for their assertions, rampant extra-biblical speculation, and the familiar
fear-evoking false idea that “superhuman” “nonhuman” and “synthetic deities”
will soon arise on the scene to alter human DNA (thus reaching immortality in a
“soulless” state thereby separating themselves from God forever)—as though
man or Satan can create any new being apart from God (see Col. 1:16-17):

Are we being blindly led over a cliff? Have we opened a sealed door, a kind of Pandora’s
Box, that was never intended to be opened? Behind closed doors scientists have
breached the genetic codes that separate the individuality of animal and plant species.
In the area of food production, new hybrid plant species have been scientifically
engineered, with their derivative products commonly appearing on our supermarket
shelves. But quietly, for two decades, scientists have taken the knowledge of genetic
engineering to a frightening new level, merging animal DNA with human DNA, creating
the potential and unthinkable reality of superhuman, nonhuman entities. [bold added]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
~ Ken Klein DVD description (WND) with Tom Horn, “Trans-Humanism: Destroying the
Barriers” 553
[Ed. note: This synopsis sounds like a 1960s B-rated horror movie! Human scientists may tinker
with animal and human DNA, but they will NEVER be able to “create” “superhuman” or
“nonhuman entities.” Only God can create new life.]

In the latter half of the show, researcher Tom Horn discussed the blistering pace of
genetics and transhumanism, and how the technology could usher in a new genetic
arms race. Over the last 2 years, statements by the Pentagon have described the
"human enhancement revolution" as being right around the corner. He expressed
concern over how biotech and robotics are transforming today's military, comparing the
development to a new era of the Nephilim—the beings written about in the Bible, who
were involved in what he called the "contamination of human genetics." Horn cited the
work of the late Terence McKenna who foresaw a technological singularity in which
human brains would be altered, creating a permanent pathway for contact with otherdimensional beings. A war is coming between "a new species of unrecognizably
superior humans" and the current humans, as well as havoc created by the building of
synthetic deities, known as artilects, he added. [bold added]
~ Coast to Coast radio interview with Tom Horn by George Noory554

[Ed. note: It’s unconscionable that a Christian author would give credence to a New Ager
immersed in hallucinogenic drugs and shamanism (McKenna). The “coming war” that Horn
predicts between “a new species of unrecognizably superior humans” and “current humans”—
as well as the “building of synthetic deities” is pure science fiction. The Book of Revelation
speaks only of a final battle on earth between Antichrist and the Lord Jesus at His coming.]

In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of
humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very
near future to redefine what it means to be human. What science has already done with
genetically modifying plants and animals will soon apply to Homo sapiens. An
international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural movement known as
transhumanism supports this vision, as does a flourishing list of U.S. military advisors,
bioethicists, law professors, and academics, which intend the use of genetics, robotics,
artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and synthetic biology (Grins technologies) as tools
that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring,
and even perhaps—as Joel Garreau, in his bestselling book Radical Evolution, claims—
our very souls. [bold added]

[Ed. note: Transhumanists of all stripes will no doubt continue their radical and sometimes
unethical experimentation—as did their alchemist forebears before them—but the fact remains
that no man, and no devil, will be able to breach the life boundary that God has put firmly into
place.]

Lucifer holds a special contempt for mankind, God's unique creation. Once again he's
making another attempt to pollute the human genome and destroy everything God has
declared to be "good." Tom Horn returns to the set to talk about the shocking advances
being made in the twisted field of transhumanism. Are we the last generation of
humans[?] [bold added]
~ YouTube promo for Tom Horn & Gary Stearman (formerly of Prophecy in the News),
video on Transhumanism 556

[Ed. note: We may be the last generation before the Lord returns. If so, we should be preaching
the Gospel of Salvation to those who are lost. That should be the burden of our hearts. The Bible
says that Satan destroys life through death, tempts mankind to sin, and savagely persecutes
believers (1 Pet. 5:8; Lk. 4:13; Rev. 12:9; Jn. 8:44; Acts 10:38; Heb. 2:14). He does NOT possess
literal “seed” with which to corrupt the human gene pool, but he comes "to steal, and to kill,
and to destroy." (John 10:10)]

What I find interesting about all of the above passages taken from Isaiah concerning
satyrs and dragons is that they are connected both to Babylon and to the "Day of the
Lord" which represents the Last Days. So, could it be that we will see these creatures
again? Recall again the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:37: "As it was in the days of Noah,
so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man." Noah lived for 950 years - 600 years prior
to the Flood and 350 years after it. So, as we are now seeing, the "days of Noah" were
filled with all sorts of strange and terrifying creatures. In those days, God's "very good"
creation was corrupted by man and Fallen Angel (Watchers). Today, modern science is
doing the exact same thing! Manipulating, distorting and corrupting God's "very good"
Creation. Scientists started by creating genetically modified food. And now they are
working on splicing genes between animals, humans and plants… The implications of
this type of science are indeed terrifying: …How tempting do you think it is for the
military to create Super-Soldiers? Men that can run like horses, hunt like tigers, see like
eagles, hear like dogs. And why stop there? What if a man could have the radar of a bat
or the sonar of a dolphin? Think I'm kidding? Think again. The Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has plans for an Extended Performance War Fighter
that is nothing short of shocking. Like something out of a sci-fi series. Make no mistake,
Transhumanism is here and it's here to stay… read Tom Horn's Open Letter To Christian
Leaders on this issue. Also, be sure to check out his new book, Forbidden Gates, which
goes into a lot more detail on all of this. This is an issue that we simply can not [sic]
afford to ignore. The lines are very quickly going to become blurred. Soon, "normal
humans" will be replaced by "super-humans" that will be so far advanced that they

188 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
would be considered gods by comparison. Through Transhumanism, we have been
and are creating animal-human hybrids, just like the Watchers and Nephilim did in the
days of Noah! [bold, red added]
~ Rob Skiba, Christian author/filmmaker 557
[Ed. note: This is an example of where this extreme mythical speculation is heading. Skiba's
Horn-inspired prediction that “soon, ‘normal humans’ will be replaced by ‘super-humans’ that
are “so far advanced” as to “be considered gods” is a sensational fairy tale, Hollywood science
fiction, but not biblical prophecy.]

Man now possesses the power, via transgenics and transhumanism to direct his own
evolution. Tinkering with his code at the genetic level (DNA) is not only possible, but is
currently being done. Strange animal hybrids are being made in the laboratory and even
humans and animals are being experimented with; man is certainly open to improving
himself in any way possible. From all of the testimony that we have seen, we know that
transhumanism is of course not the real goal. For the very concept of it is “trans” – that
is, to be transhuman – to go beyond being human. The mixing of human seed with
animals is merely a stepping stone to something far more sinister that Satan has been
planning for a very long time, and in fact, has already attempted several times. Daniel
2:43 predicts that such a scenario is going to happen again and we saw that it has
already begun. Thus, man mingling himself with animals is detestable, but not the deal
breaker. Transhumanist activity is only the stepping stone to an even grander deception.
We have noted that after the rapture, the Enemy will have a counter explanation and
the “aliens” will take credit for it. The Bible tells us that a man with fierce countenance
will arise and he will have all the power, authority and working signs of Satan to deceive
the world and to cause them to take on his mark. Could the science of transhumanism
and transgenics play a role in the rise of the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast? Could
technology allow Satan to create one from his own seed as Genesis 3:15 predicts?
Satan’s end game has been in the making now for many decades and will very soon be
put into play. [bold added]
~ Doug Hamp, Christian author 558

[Ed. note: Man has never been given the power to “direct his own evolution.” This is a New Age
heresy. Man is a sinner in need of a Savior. Daniel 2:43 does not predict a future transhuman
nightmare. In this verse, the prophet Daniel is interpreting the dream of the statue’s ten-toed
feet. He said that in the last days, this end-time kingdom will not hold together like iron when it
is mixed with clay. It will be a time when kingdoms will attempt to strengthen political power by
forming alliances through intermarriage.]

There is more to worshipping the image of the Beast, than meets the eye. The demonic

Cyborgs. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what is happening now. In this powerful
MP3 series, Paul explains how it is possible that genetically modified human beings
and Nephilim are walking among us. Paul connects the secret meaning of the all-seeing
eye of Lucifer on the back of U.S. dollar and how the Egyptian pyramid may represent, a
genetically enhanced elite. Nephilim may rule the masses with a microchip implant
after the Rapture. The architecture in Washington D.C. was designed by the
Freemasons and pointed towards America being the New Atlantis or Babylon. Prepar e

that most people do not even know exist.… [bold added]
~ MP3 description for “A Transhuman Replicant Future” by Paul McGuire, Christian
author [The jacket graphic for this MP3 is depicted below.]559
[Ed. note: McGuire mixes occult lore, Freemasonry, and science fiction to rewrite Scripture when
he states that the “strange armies that fight at Armageddon are not human.” He is claiming
they are “genetically engineered super soldiers of Cyborgs.” The term “Cyborg” is certainly not
in the Bible. Here is in fact what the Word of God says: “For they are the spirits of devils,
working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather
them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty… And he gathered them together into a
place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Rev. 16:14, 16) While they will be indeed
inspired by demons, the armies that gather at Armageddon are human men; the “kings of the
earth.” (See Part 2)]

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
All of these sensationally frightful teachings are contrary to Scripture and devoid
of the true Gospel. Mankind’s greatest enemy is his own sin—not posthuman
hybrid creatures or mythological monsters poised to corrupt and/or exterminate
the human race. Dr. Erdmann points us back to Christ:
The response to human mortality that has been made by Christianity is to point to the source of
the imperfection – ethical rebellion of human beings against their creator God. The natural
decay of every complex structures in the universe is attributable to God’s curse on this ethical
rebellion, and the promise of external restoration goes with the promise of internal
regeneration (Romans 8:18-23). The core problem of individual human beings lies, therefore, in
their autonomous dispositions. Human beings must be conformed ethically to the image of
Jesus Christ, the perfectly human and divine Son of God. To achieve this goal, each person
requires unconditional grace from God (Romans 8:29; Eph. 2:8-9), which involves not only
forgiveness, but also the means of progressive sanctification: the comprehensive submission to
God’s sovereign rule (Phil. 3:14). The goal is the ultimate (post-judgment) attainment of perfect
humanity, not the attainment of full technological perfection, as a quasi-divine being (Phil.
3:20-21).561 [bold added]

THE TRUTH:
The Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) elite—who have concocted and
promulgated a multi-faceted, metaphysical shift beyond credulity via conjecture,
Scripture wresting, and pseudoscience—are luring God’s flock through perilous
pastures and into the dark abyss by posing as enlightened shepherds. The only
remedy is for those who’ve wandered into the PPP fold to return to the Good
Shepherd and His Word which alone can light the pathway home.
Over 60 years ago A.W. Tozer exhorted the brethren to test everything with the
written Word of God. We would do well to heed his wise words that apply even
clearer today as we see that day approaching:
“But there were false prophets also among the people,
even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies...
(2 Pet. 2:1).”

191 | P a g e

THE RISE OF END-TIME OCCULTISM
Whatever it may be in our Christian experience that originates outside of Scriptures should, for
that very reason, be suspect until it can be shown to be in accord with them.
If it should be found to be contrary to the Word of revealed truth no true Christian will accept it
as being from God. However high the emotional content, no experience can be proved to be
genuine unless we can find chapter and verse authority for it in Scriptures. "To the word and to
the testimony" must always be the last and final proof.
Whatever is new or singular should also be viewed with caution until it can furnish scriptural
proof of its validity. Throughout the twentieth century quite a number of unscriptural notions
have gained acceptance among Christians by claiming that they were among truths that were
to be revealed in the last days.
The truth is that the Bible does not teach that there will be new light and advanced spiritual
experiences in the latter days; it teaches the exact opposite! Nothing in Daniel or the New
Testament epistles can be tortured into advocating the idea that we of the end of the
Christian era shall enjoy light that was not known at its beginning.
Beware of any man who claims to be wiser than the apostles or holier than the martyrs of the
Early Church. The best way to deal with him is to rise and leave his presence! 562 [bold added]

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming,
and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:
and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep (John 10:10-12).”

Note: Marzulli has also been a musician, composer, and worship director at a Vineyard Church in California with
connections to the late John Wimber. Note this insightful bio posted under Marzulli’s interview, “L.A. Marzulli on
UFO Deception”, on Cursed Net Radio.com in 2008: “L.A. Marzulli, author, composer and researcher had no use for
God after the age of 13, when he stopped attending the Catholic church of his parents. When he was 18, his 16 year-old girlfriend was killed in an accident. Deeply affected by this, he felt there was no God whatsoever. To ease
the pain, he sought relief from many sources including drugs. By the age of 21, Marzulli moved into an ashram.
Though he’d left the church, he found himself drawn to other spiritual expressions, especially the New Age
movement. His fascination with unusual phenomena drew him deeper and deeper into the supernatural and
occultist world. [bold added] By age 30, however, he realized something crucial: that none of his experiences did a
thing to change what was on the inside... [ellipses in original] He now believes in God [Ed. Note: which ‘God’?
There is no mention here of the Lord Jesus Christ or His saving Gospel] and sees the current fascination with UFOs
and other unusual phenomena as tools that the enemy is using to deceive people. It bothered him that Satan was
deceiving so many, just as he’d been deceived. He wanted to warn others as to what was really happening, and
equip other believers to share their faith with those who were caught up in supernatural phenomena”; see:

123 In light of the aborted Chichen-Itza mission, it is not surprising that the video requesting these funds was
removed from Marzulli’s website. Pastor Ken Silva captured it before it was pulled and included it in a satirical

See Marzulli’s website: http://lamarzulli.wordpress.com/2012/12/14/chichen-itza-trip-a-r edirect-from-thecaptain-of-the-hosts/. Marzulli records: “Peggy and I prayed and asked the Lord for confirmation one way or the
other. About ten minutes later, I received a word. It was the story of Abraham taking Issac [sic] to be sacrificed. I
felt the Lord tell me, like Abraham, I had been faithful in that I was prepared to go all the way, but also like
Abraham there was a redirect. I was not to go to Chichen Itza. Later Peggy double confirmed it when she reminded
me that I have been saying, jokingly, for the last year, that I was the sacrifice. The double entendre was not lost on
me." [Ed. Note: Marzulli’s blog posting/link have been removed from his website.]
132 See Marzulli’s blog posting for December 17, 2012: “Chichen Itza Accounting: I want to make a public
accounting of what I did with the money we received for the trip to Mexico. 1. We raised upward of $14,000.00
Two of those donations totaled $7,500.00 I called most of the donors personally last week, BEFORE I went public

demonstrating with radical activist Abbie Hoffman and made an honorary member of the Black Panther Party.
However, while studying “Altered States of Consciousness” at the University of Missouri, Paul had a miraculous
experience hitchhiking in a remote area similar to the movie “Field of Dreams.” Paul re-thought his socialist and
humanist world view and rejected it as completely false. Paul has devoted his life to communicating truth to

Note: McGuire teaches and unbiblical eclectic mix of ideas and doctrines regarding biblical prophecy and
appears to have a wide influence in the evangelical world. An MP3 description on his website is an illustration: “As
such, Paul has been able to analyze from the Word of God teaching and trends especially as they relate to
prophecy in the local church. Among the leaders Paul has met, worked with or interviewed on a personal level are
leaders like Jack Hayford, Tim LaHaye, Chuck Smith, David Hocking, Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Rick Warren, the
late Dr. D. James Kennedy, Charles Stanley, John McArthur, Dave Hunt, Rick Joyner, Jacob Prasch, Hank
Hannegraff, Benny Hinn, General Shimon Erem, Joel Rosenberg, Waleed Shoebat, Jack Hibbs, Ed Hindson, Mark
Hitchcock, Che Ahn, Hal Lindsey, Lou Engle Chuck Missler, the late Dr. Bill Bright, the Francis Schaeffer Edith
Schaeffer and numerous other leaders. An intensive study of God's W ord, along with a formative theology shaped
by Francis Schaeffer and Jack Hayford, have given Paul a unique understanding of "Prophecy In The Local Church";

the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife, (Loizeaux Brothers, 1916, 1959), proposed that that the deeds of Nimrod, the
man, were turned into ancient mythological stories that were embellished upon with much occult symbology, and

“The High Cost of Salvation,” Goodgame writes, "The primary emphasis in the teachings of Jesus was not salvation,
but the Kingdom of Heaven. It was not primarily what to believe; it was instructions on how we are to live. Jesus
didn’t die just to bring a new “belief system,” but to offer the world a new “life system” that began at Pentecost

248 In the introduction to the last article in our “Cosms, Codes, and Cryptologies” series documenting the rise of
Quantum Mysticism in these prophecy leaders, we wrote the following admonition, which is still pertinent: STOP!
before you rush to condemn someone for showing up on the exhaustive lists on this post! Do not employ the
faulty and unethical technique of “guilt by association.” Please do not rush to judge! We urge you to kindly ask
people to read this series, and discuss it with them, in the gentle spirit of Paul in Acts 20:31: ‘Therefore watch, and
remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.’ We plead
with folks reading this – many of whom have been unawares before – now that you know more of the story, to
please jump off this Quantum Mysticism bandwagon and get back to the Bible. Our ardent prayers are that you will
seriously consider these admonitions and warnings; see: http://herescope.blogspot.com/2012/06/quantummysticism-goes-to-market.html.

The Greek word gnosis is the word “science” in this verse, meaning “knowledge, intelligence, understanding”;
see: http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G1108&t=KJV. “False so called” is derived
from pseudonymos, from which we get the English word pseudonym, interpreted literally “falsely named”; see:

assisting them with altering their eschatology and adopting his Noetic Sciences (Gnosticism). For example, see:

Cosmogony might actually be a more precise word to use than cosmology when describing these occult
worldviews. It is defined as “a theory or story of the origin and development of the universe, the solar system, or
the earth-moon system”; see: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cosmogony?s=t.

Encounters positively cited by O’Leary at a conference in Ft. Collins called the International Forum on New Science
(footnote 39, chapter 1). This is now part of Internet UFO Lore. In the filmed interview archived on this website, Dr.
Leary indicates his New Age belief in contacting extraterrestrials via “consciousness” (i.e., meditation, channeling,
etc.). “Civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time. Their appearance is bizarre… they use the
technologies of consciousness… They can manipulate time and space locally…”; see:

379 Note: This is an excerpt from a Wikipedia entry on the Hindu Vedas: “Maya is often translated as 'illusion', since
our minds construct a subjective experience, which we are in peril of interpreting as reality. Māyā is the principal
deity that manifests, perpetuates, and governs the illusion and dream of duality in the phenomenal Universe. For
some mystics, this manifestation is real. Each person, each physical object, from the perspective of eternity, is like
a brief, disturbed drop of water from an unbounded ocean. The goal of enlightenment is to understand this—more
precisely, to experience this: to see that the distinction between the self and the Universe is a false dichotomy. The
distinction between consciousness and physical matter, between mind and body (refer bodymind), is the result of
an unenlightened perspective.” See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_(illusion).

Chuck Missler, YouTube video, “Missing Attributions in Cosmic Codes”, Lyonshead Media Ltd., August 20, 2013;
see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgUsbk9AqZ8&feature=player_embedded. Note: Missler imported
several extensive passages from Talbot’s book, including a prominent hologram graphic without proper
attribution. Most of the 17 exhibits documented in the “Without Attribution” article record word -for-word and
line-by-line excerpts, with others bearing slight modifications from Talbot’s original writing (see the article in the
above footnote for full documentation). Missler also copied Talbot’s exact footnote sourcing in the back of his own
book. It does not seem probable, given the sheer volume of “missing attributions” (and past history), that these
massive omissions could have transpired by accidental or “sloppy” scholarship as Mr. Missler insinuates in his
video. Nevertheless, it is commendable that he has publicly acknowledged incorporating Talbot’s writings and
ideas into his own published book, Cosmic Codes: Messages from the Edge of Eternity. Our hope is that Missler
would completely revise Cosmic Codes to correct all of the missing attributions with proper citations and
footnoting, including Talbot’s original source work.

Note: I first became aware of Capra’s mystical New Age philosophy during my years of martial arts training.
Later as an instructor, I unfortunately taught these deceptions to others. After my conversion, I renounced both of
my black belts, left the combat arts, and wrote an e-book about these false teachings that not only fail to line up
with Scripture, but tragically lead followers away from Christ. To access this free online booklet, “My Life in the
Way: from the Broad Way of the East to the Narrow Way of Christ”; see:

of biblical prophecy that perhaps people would come to their senses and recognize that there was a real problem.
We warned that there was an entirely new ESCHATOLOGY (last-days scenarios) arising that blended the Bible with
these pagan sources. Below is a list of articles that detail the evangelical leaders caught up in this prophecy

phenomena, near death experiences, UFOs and extraterrestrials, and conspiracy theories. Movies featuring
superheros, vampires, artificial intelligence, and mutants are the rage. Why? They constitute an alternative to
theism and Christianity. Science fiction and the paranormal capture the imagination by offering a means to our
own divinity and glimpses of other realities. Space is heaven without the biblical God. The paranormal offers an
escape from deterministic materialism and spirituality without centralized authority. It all satisfies the yearning for
the transcendent and a destiny of becoming more than human, whether by modifying our bodies (transhumanism)
or evolving with supernatural assistance that isn’t an angry deity. The message is simple and ancient: we will be as
gods. Rather than belittle those who have rejected Christianity in favor of this new religion or denying someone’s
anomalous experience, my goal is to help people consider that perhaps the problem isn’t the Bible, but the in sidethe-box (or head-in-the-sand) thinking that often characterizes Christian approaches to these subjects. This is why I
blog at UFO Religions, speak at UFO conferences, write sci-fi paranormal thrillers (The Facade, The Portent), and
host the Peeranormal podcast.”

511 To understand this offensive graphic, Tom Horn explains, “In Egyptian mythology, the sun represented Osiris
while the star Sirius symbolized Isis, and thirteen was the number of pieces of Osiris that Isis was able to find after
Seth, his evil brother, murdered and threw fourteen pieces of him into the Nile. Isis searched the riverbank until
she recovered every piece, except for his genitals, which had been swallowed by a fish. Isis replaced the missing
organ with an Obelisk and magically impregnated herself with Horus. Therefore, in Masonic as well as in ancient
Egyptian mythology, the number thirteen—used a total of thirteen times on the Great Seal, counting front and
back—is the number that represents the return or resurrection of Osiris.” Thomas Horn, Zenith 2016: Did
Something Begin in the Year 2012 that will Reach it’s Apex in 2016?, Defender Publishing, Crane, MO, 2013, pg.

530 See common knowledge definition of technological singularity: “The technological singularity, often colloquially
called the singularity, is a theoretical point in time when human technology (and, particularly, technological
intelligence) will have so rapidly progressed that, ultimately, a greater-than-human intelligence will emerge, which
will ‘radically change human civilization, and perhaps even human nature itself’”:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity .
531 Note: Many of Horn’s ideas are similar to New Age visionary, Barbara Marx Hubbard. See the description for the
Tipping Point Prophets Conference 2012, especially the New Ager’s view of “critical mass”:

Revised and Expanded Edition of Apollyon Rising 2012, Defender Publishing, Crane, MO 2013 (AR-2012, 2009).
Note: the most notable adjustments to Horn’s 2012 date adjustments are found in Chapter 20:12. In Apollyon
Rising 2012 the chapter title reads, “Final Part of the Last Mystery of the Great Seal: When”. In Zenith 2016, the
same chapter title has this not-so-subtle alteration, “Final Part of the Last Mystery: 2012-2016, 2019, and the
End?” Also note a major change to the chapter 20:12 subtitle: from “Deeper Secrets: Maya, Watchers, and the
2012 Return” (AR-2012, pg. 316) to “Deeper Secrets: The Watchers and 33, 2012, 2016 (Z-2016, pg. 382). Here is
the boast from the back cover of Z-2016, “What even the best researchers of the Illuminati and veiled fraternities
such as the Freemasons were never able to fully decipher is spelled out her ein for the first time. The power at
work behind global affairs and why current planetary powers are hurriedly aligning for a New Order from Chaos is
exposed. Most incredibly, one learns how ancient prophets foresaw and forewarned of this time.” Note that the
“ancient prophets” cited here are primarily extra-biblical. See also the bulleted excerpts from the back of this
book:
• Unveiled! It started in 2012—the secret Freemasonic countdown for a Global World Leader circa 2016.
• Disclosed! How recent US Presidents and other global leaders are—and have been—deeply involved in the
scheme to enthrone the Man of Sin.
• Found! The hidden connection between the years 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2019. Is it really the End!?”
• Revealed! What the world has never heard about the End of the Mayan Calendar.
• The role that Pope Francis—the FINAL POPE—may play in the year 2016 during the installation of the King of the
NWO.
• The eight-hundred-year-old prophecy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel and what it says about the timeframe 20122016.
• What Protestant Reformers believed about the years 2012-2016. Discover what they expected to happen…and
predicted.
• Blood Moons and 2014, 2015, Feast days, and the Comet of the Century. Is God, Himself, preparing to light the
first real candle of Chanukah!?
• The return of the Watchers and the mysterious, worldwide connection between these angelic NEPHILIM creators
and the numbers 33, 2012, and 2016.
Also from the back cover: “Internationally acclaimed investigative author Thomas Horn uncovers what you can
expect to unfold in the coming days, and, more importantly, what you can do to be prepared for the arrival of the
kingdom of Antichrist.”
