The Netherworld Power Of Pneuma Part V
he present series addresses the concept of Dragonspeak – that mysterious output of the Spirit found in the False Prophet of Revelation 13 – and how that evil is able to give “life” (Pneuma in the Greek) to the Image of the Beast. In previous portions of the Christian Media Communique, we’ve connected this power with the work of European intellectuals in the early 20thcentury who sought to reconstruct the prevailing social order through the development of the system of the Dialectic. This “Dialectic” (a term derived from the ancient Greek practice of Dialogue), was combined with the atheistic philosophy of Karl Marx, and the leftist behavioral scientists of Germany in the 1930’s, in an effort to change the way people think.
Clustered around the Frankfort area of Germany, these theorists formed the Institute For Social Research, and they developed the Dialogue To Consensus system that sought to move the entire world towards Global Socialism. In what became informally known as the Frankfort School, the German elite were pursuing psychiatry, education, sociology, and political science with the idea that man was not intrinsically rooted in the Biblical concept of sin, but had a spark of godliness that could be encouraged through social development in an environmental context.
Marxism, the political result of what was then called Dialectical Materialism, had taken root in neighboring Russia, and several Communist oriented political ideologies were vying for primacy. Many are unaware that Karl Marx had come from a Christian background, and his antithetical analysis of the Gospel was pivotal to the philosophy that birthed Communism. Marx realized that the kingdoms of the world – particularly the monarchies of Europe – were built around the Biblical model of a Patriarchal structure, where the father of each household was essentially an extension of the Biblical God. In a similar fashion, the king of each nation was the “Father” figure of that nation.
In Scripture, we learn that all have sinned and fallen short of God. The human heart is essentially wicked, and in the Biblical model, the Father’s word is final and absolute, where the child must be instructed in the ways of righteousness – with the threat of chastisement an inducement to acquiesce to the Father’s will. Of course, most know that the child wants to do his own will, so a clash is inevitable.
“Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying…If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Proverbs 19:18; Hebrews 12:7, 8)
Steeped in the faulty conclusion that religion is a terrible blight on mankind, Marx reasoned that if he could destroy the Patriarchal model, he could remake the world in a way in which the government could take the place of the Father figure – and God. To achieve this social transition, the behaviorists reversed the roles, and claimed the Child was of a pure nature in following his or her most basic desires, and the Father figure functioned as an unreasonable impediment to the Child’s desires.
This is the origin of ridiculous modern slogans such as “follow your inner child,” as though this is the pathway to creative and productive development. By removing the Father figure’s authority from the family unit, the inevitable result is the worldview of a Hillary Clinton, which posits the lucicrous concept,It Takes A Village To Raise A Child. This view actually preceded our time by many decades, for back in the late 1940’s, the noted child physician Dr. Benjamin Spock taught millions of Americans that chastening your child was wrong, and the child’s feelings were to be considered paramount. This apostasy was the direct result of the Dialectic system, as developed by the intellectuals in the Frankfort School, where the hidden agenda was to make the Father, as the anchor of the Patriarchal worldview, appear to be a lower order thinker, who is out of touch with modernism, thus making him irrelevant.
By dissolving the family unit, the Antichrist doctrine of Karl Marx has triumphed in changing the way our entire generation thinks:
“Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the holy family, the former must itself be annihilated theoretically and practically” (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #4).
In Part III of The Netherworld Power Of Pneuma, we addressed how flesh and blood unconsciously seeks the Dopamine release which occurs when individuals gratify their own desires. This is part of the basic, physiological processes which govern our hearts and minds, as we are hard-wired to seek pleasure, and man has learned he can accomplish that through manipulation of our environment. Stylish clothing that makes us feel good about ourselves, air-conditioned cars, and the assembly of social contacts which reinforce our self image all occur in the material world, so they are categorized as a part of our environment.
Conversely, the restraint which is imposed from a higher authority (such as the Father), whether as children or adults, is rooted in the Spiritual realm. If we, for instance, choose to rob a bank to get the money to buy those stylish clothes and air conditioned cars, a higher power – the law and its enforcement arm, the police – serve to impede such a foolish assertion of self will.
The conscience is that which is instilled within a person by yielding to the instruction originating in a higher authority – but the Dialectic premise seeks to “annihilate” (Marx’s own term) that moral authority, in order to allow us to “express” our basest desires. This process of removing restraint, liberates the flesh and blood from the conscience – thus providing an energy which animates the resulting social structure This is the Netherworld Pneumawhich the Spirit of the False Prophet imparts to the Image of the Beast.Thus, the Image of the Beast is a societal construct which is completely devoid of the Spirit of the LORD.
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, despisers of those that are good. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” (II Timothy 3:2-4).
The previous Scripture may be summed up in the modern motto “If it feels good, do it.” This Dragonspeak formula depends on relativism and change – the ongoing cycle wherein everything, under the ongoing barrage of opinion and participation in the Dialectical paradigm, is in a state of constant transition. The opposite polarity is called Didactic, or fixed, and the Word of God is absolute in its authority:
“For I am the Lord, I change not…Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8)
It is significant that what prophecy calls the Falling Away (the Apostasia in II Thessalonians 2:3, in which a wholesale departure from the truth occurs), coincides with the post-World War II generation, when the architects of the Dialogue To Consensus introduced the concept to America. Finally, the removal of the Spiritual restraint which has occurred in the baby boom generation, “as the transgressors are come to the full” (Daniel 8:23), is now irreversible. Further, this departure from the ways of the LORD finds its closest parallel in the days of Noah:
“And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth” (Genesis 6:12).
Obviously, this connects to Jesus Christ’s statement that the end of days would be just as it was in the days of Noah. It is also linked to the removal of the Biblical restrainer seen in II Thessalonians.
“Only he who letteth [restrains] will let [restrain], until he be taken out of the way” (II Thessalonians 2:7).
The fact that the Spirit of the False Prophet, the one which speaks as a dragon, has been unleashed is self evident to those with genuine Spiritual discernment. Unfortunately, vast numbers of believers, professing themselves to be Christians, are deeply deceived concerning the fundamentals of the Gospel, and the evidence is all around us.
Such continue to present themselves as lambs, but when they Dialectically speak as dragons, the Spirit of the False Prophet that inhabits them identifies itself, as the Netherworld Power of Pneuma, which is now seated in the temple (II Thessalonians 2:4). Meanwhile, the LORD has revealed this momentous truth to His legitimate children, so those who refuse to recognize this concept are exposed as bereft of the truth – and they don’t even know it.
At the same time, the Holy Spirit of the LORD continues His urgent call, to all with ears to hear:
“Come out of [the Image], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4).
