The Shinar Directive – Part 6

Secrets of The Brick Layers

By Michael K. Lake, Th.D.

Shinar7

In researching this portion of my upcoming book The Shinar Directive, I really struggled with what aspects of the Tower of Babel story to examine. I could easily dive into the rich minutia contained within this story and miss the main points that we need to explore. So, before I examine this unfinished conspiracy, let’s look at some basic information regarding the Tower of Babel.

1. The gathering: Nimrod gathered the people together in direct defiance to God’s instruction for Noah to replenish the earth. Men working together also served as a mechanism to build a society in which men need not walk with the Creator to survive and thrive. They developed reliance upon one another (secular system) and developed gods most likely based upon the legend of the Watchers and the Nephilim.

2. The construction: This tower/altar was made of bricks (more on this shortly) and sealed with bitumen. Bitumen is asphalt in its natural state. This substance would have made the tower waterproof.[1][i] Again, this reinforces the concept that they were preparing themselves to withstand another judgment flood.

3. Make a name and prevent scattering: I will address the concept of making a name for the citizens of Babylon a little later in this chapter. Their refusal to scatter shows their absolute determination to defy the instruction of God.

4. The symbolic meaning of the tower: Dr. Edward F. Murphy, in his Handbook for Spiritual Warfare, states the following:

Again this supports our spiritual warfare interpretation of the sin of Babel leading to God’s judgment. Satan, “the god of this world,” building on the corrupt flesh of man (his pride) and his worldly ambitions, was the spirit behind the Tower of Babel. Wenham says, “Throughout Scripture Babylon is seen as the embodiment of human pride and godlessness that must attract the judgment of almighty God.” It is also the symbol of the rejection of the true God and the creation of god systems which are created by men to meet their own selfish wants.[1][ii] (Emphasis added)

So the tower served as an occult symbol of the rejection of the Creator and the establishment of a god system that catered to the sinful/carnal desires of fallen man.

The Shinar Directive — Part 5

Size & Scope of the Coming World Kingdom

By Michael K. Lake, Th.D.

Does the Word of God in Daniel give us a hint that the Antichrist will be able to reproduce the dark magic and scale of Nimrod’s empire?

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (Daniel 11:37)

Some have speculated that this refers to the Antichrist being a homosexual. Although it is true that most within the occult are bisexual (for use in ritual magic), I believe this is a prophetic clue linking the coming man of sin with Nimrod. This powerful working of dark magic and esoteric wisdom will be reproduced one more time in human history. The coming transmogrification of a man will invite Lucifer himself to come and coinhabit this enhanced man-god. He will become the reincarnation of Nimrod—the Antichrist!

Babylonian and Egyptian mysticism are still the leading spiritual forces within the winding currents of the mystery religions today. Egyptian Sex Magic, a product of Egyptian mysticism, is prominent in the teachings of Aleister Crowley, as well as the Ordo Templi Orientis and the Golden Dawn. It is also interwoven in the esoteric teachings of Freemasonry. In his internationally acclaimed book, Zenith 2016,Dr. Tom Horn reveals the Lost Symbol of Freemasonry:

Unrecognized by the vast majority of peoples around the world is the greatest conspiracy of all time, sitting right out in the open in Washington DC and at the Vatican. It is an ancient, magical, talismanic diagram—the Lost Symbol—which waits its final use by the hidden, occult hand guiding the Secret Destiny of America.[i]

It would seem that the Lost Symbol was designed utilizing ancient Watcher knowledge, handed down through the line of Ham, and was embedded in the occult religious practices of Egypt. Could the Lost Symbol be a Watcher-inspired spiritual/technological device designed to replicate the transformation of Nimrod? Will it one day produce a new man-god: Gibborim/Nephilim (Osiris made flesh)? The truth is that the physical occult symbols/devices have been in place for centuries, and practitioners of the occult have been going through the prescribed rituals with absolute devotion. Yet, through all of the centuries of faithful rehearsals, the equal to Nimrod has yet to be reproduced. Perhaps the realization of the next Nimrod will require intervention by the Watchers through a stargate (or dimensional portal) into our reality. On the other hand, maybe the last piece of the god-maker puzzle is still just waiting to be discovered in one of the world’s pyramids or ziggurats.

The Elite of the world are working behind the scenes with secret government agencies around the globe and the Transhumanist Movement community to unlock the secrets of Nimrod.

The Shinar Directive – Part One

Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition’s Return


Published: December 03, 2014

Introduction to concept

by Dr. Thomas R. Horn


clip_image002As far back as the beginning of time and within every major culture of the ancient world, an astonishingly consistent story is told of “gods” that descended from heaven and materialized in bodies of flesh. From Rome to Greece—and before that, to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Sumer—the earliest records of civilization tell of the era when powerful beings known to the Hebrews asWatchers and in the book of Genesis as the Benei ha-Elohim (“Sons of God”) mingled with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial hybrids known as Nephilim. The Bible says this happened when men began to increase on earth and daughters were born to them. When the Sons of God saw the women’s beauty, they took wives from among them to sire their unusual offspring. This event is recorded in Genesis 6:4 this way:

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

When this Scripture is compared with other ancient texts, including Enoch, Jubilees, Baruch, Genesis Apocryphon, Philo, Josephus, and others, it unfolds to some that the giants of the Old Testament, such as Goliath, were the part-human, part-animal, part-angelic offspring of a supernatural interruption into the divine order of the species. The apocryphal Book of Enoch gives a name to the angels involved in this cosmic conspiracy, calling them “Watchers.” We read:

And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers called me—Enoch the scribe—and said to me: “Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children [the Nephilim], The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain.” (1 Enoch 10:3–8).

According to Enoch, two hundred of these powerful angels departed “high heaven” and used women (among other things) to extend their progeny into mankind’s plane of existence. Departing the proper habitation God had assigned them was grievous to the Lord and led to divine penalization. Jude described it this way:

[The] angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jude 6)

Yet beyond such historical accounts from apocryphal, pseudepigraphic, biblical, and Jewish traditions related to the advent of the Watchers and the “mighty men” born of their union with humans, mythologized accounts say these “gods” used humans to produce demigods (half-gods). In fact, 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 translated gegenes, the same terminology used by the Greeks to describe the Titans and other legendary heroes of partly celestial and partly terrestrial origin, such as Hercules (born of Zeus and the mortal Alcmena) and Gilgamesh (the two-thirds god and one-third human child of Lugalbanda and Ninsun).

clip_image004This is where things get quite interesting, as on the back cover of the upcoming book by Dr. Michael Lake (on which this new series is based) you will find an unsettling statement involving what some would call the greatest of all “demigods” on the ancient plains of Shinar—a geographical locale in ancient Mesopotamia that the Hebrew Bible refers to as Babylon—where an evil was born: the first world king, the prototype transhuman, the ultimate despot named Nimrod in the Bible, Osiris by the Egyptians, Gilgamesh by the Sumerians, and Apollo by the Greeks. This part-human hybrid was the original Son of Perdition who later devised the “Shinar Directive”—a plot to enslave humanity through a global false religion that would turn men against God and the order of His creation. Of course, we all know how God intervened at the Tower of Babel and dispersed Nimrod’s original coup, but few understand that this story is not over yet—it’s coming around and was prophesied to do so in a final end-times conflict during which the primeval powers of Mystery Babylon would gather to build a new Tower of Babel for Nimrod/Apollo’s second coming.

Over the years, my good friend and biblical scholar Gary Stearman has written extensively about the connection this historical figure had with the original Babylonian mystery religion as well as his reanimation in the end-times as Antichrist. “But who is this Assyrian[?]” he asked a while back. “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.”

Stearman continues:

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.

Alexander Hislop, in his classic text, The Two Babylons, substantiates the thesis that the Babylonian mystery religion was based on the worship of this proto-Antichrist. “It was to glorify Nimrod that the whole Chaldean system of iniquity was formed,” he wrote.[i] Yet the mystery religion continued since its beginning secretly through the ages, shrouded in hiding by adepts of the occult in anticipation of a final moment when the ancient spirit should be awakened. Or, as Stearman put it:

Corrupt priesthoods have flourished, carrying with them the shadow of Nimrod and his ancient mysteries. Their inner secrets have been known by various names, including alchemy, magic, sorcery, conjuring, soothsaying and so forth.… waiting for the prophesied day when it would rise once again. [A movement that] will result in the reign of the Antichrist.

clip_image006Enter Dr. Michael Lake, founder and chancellor of Biblical Life College and Seminary, whose shocking essay you will be learning about—a thesis that argues beyond doubt that we have entered the final time frame in which the spirit of Nimrod/Apollo is rising. Dare I say, with this fresh and imaginative investigation, that Lake emerges as one of the most judicious observers of the ages harkening back to those ancient occult-science endeavors—from megalithic building sites to the founders of Atlantian-like societies that to this day astonish scholars and laymen alike. Yet, argues Lake, there is more. During this series and more completely in his upcoming book The Shinar Directive, he tackles the timeline between the first incursion of a mighty evil to its return and final encounter. Lake exceeds in making this near future chillingly ominous. Our eyes are opened to a biosphere and exosphere that have become a vast and stunningly dreadful battleground—a terrain as forgotten as prehistory, yet is as close to us now as our own tomorrow. This toxic reality was foreseen by Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, but soon will, by necessity, be traversed by gutsy end-time heroes, not highly trained black-ops teams or Elite commandos, but a triumphant Church!

In the end you will find the greatest achievements of The Shinar Directive are apt, profound, and conveyed in riveting fashion: With this work, the past and future legacy of wisdom and revelation clearly shine forth in multifaceted grandeur—from the forgotten “knowledge” of so-called “gods” and their reconnection to the latest scientific advances to the terrifying underbelly of a boiling Armageddon and, finally, the brilliant and thrilling endgame that God has in store for His own.

The journey begins in the next entry.

The Paradox of the Ever-Learning Mind

The Paradox of the Ever-Learning Mind

The Paradox of an Ever-Learning Mind

(Alternate Title:  How Not to Become a Babylonian Techno-Induced Zombie!)

By Michael K. Lake, Th.D., D.R.E. – Chancellor, Biblical Life College and Seminary

Did you know that you own the most advanced computer system in the known universe?  The gray matter resting between your ears is an absolute miracle.  Science has not been able to duplicate the sophistication of the human mind: the Cray Supercomputer does not even come close! The Almighty, in His boundless wisdom, hardwired your brain for learning.  Whether you realize it or not, your mind is like the little robot in the movie, Short Circuit, which is continually looking for “more input.”  The ancient Hebrews understood the need to feed their minds, and they determined that it was their duty before God to actively learn His ways.  This ancient Hebrew wisdom is expressed in what Jesus referred to as the greatest commandment:

 Matthew 22:37-38 (KJV)

37   Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  38  This is the first and great commandment.

Jesus was quoting Deuteronomy 6:5.  The word for heart in Hebrew is lebab (lay-bawb’), which means “inner man, mind, will, heart, soul, understanding, mind, knowledge, thinking, reflection, and memory.” [1]  Therefore, biblically, loving God with all of your heart includes your mind and the information you place within it.  This is why the Jewish people consider study of the Word of God the highest form of worship.  When we understand just how many paganistic concepts (which are offensive to Almighty God) have permeated Western society, this Jewish concept of study and worship makes perfect sense.

The members of the Early Church shared this Hebraic understanding and actively labored to fill (or renew) their minds with the Word of God through systematic study.  If this was true for the Jewish people in the First Century, it was even more so for the Gentile believers that were immersed in a completely pagan society (much like we are today).  The Apostle Paul implores believers to:

Romans 12:2 (KJV)

2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I want you to notice the progression in the pleadings of Paul:  do not be like the world; receive transformation by renewing your mind.  The Greek word that Paul uses for transformation is metamorphoo (met-am-or-fo’-o), which means “to change into another form, to transform, and to transfigure.” [2]   Therefore, in the mind of the Apostle Paul, believers were to consistently move away from worldliness (i.e., paganism) and, at the same time, move toward biblical holiness.

What the Apostle Paul alludes to in Romans 12:2 is the fact that the world is constantly attempting to influence your mind.  There is a continual war between two kingdoms regarding what information your mind receives on a daily basis.  If you understand the nature of this war, you can become the gatekeeper of your own mind.  After all, you are in a constant state of transformational flux:  either toward holiness or toward worldliness.

The World Doesn’t Play Fair

To grow in the Kingdom of God, we must choose to participate in the study process of learning how to walk with God, how to learn His ways, and how His kingdom operates.  It requires us to pick up books, listen to audio teachings, and to watch video presentations.  We must choose to invest in some sweat equity to move forward and to have our minds renewed.

However, the world doesn’t play fair, in that indoctrination is automatic.  We tend to forget that we are literally swimming in a river of cultures and ideas that flow from Babylon.  All we have to do is float inactively in the world, and we are inundated with the very streams of pagan consciousness that the Apostle Paul was endeavoring to take us out of.  With the innovation of television, the stream of Babylonian consciousness has evolved from a small stream to a raging mile-wide river!

Television and the Human Mind

In my research in writing the book, The Shinar Directive, I discovered some amazing facts about the use of television (or videos) and the human mind.  Television has moved from being a device that brings us news and entertainment to becoming the most powerful weapon for indoctrination that Hell has ever used.  Although my new book will not be released until this Fall, I want to share some important information about television and your mind.  According to the Applied Neuro Technologies website, TV profoundly affects your state of consciousness:

Studies have shown that watching television induces low alpha waves in the human brain. Alpha waves are brainwaves between 8 to 12 HZ. and are commonly associated with relaxed meditative states as well as brain states associated with suggestibility.

While Alpha waves achieved through meditation are beneficial (they promote relaxation and insight), too much time spent in the low Alpha wave state caused by TV can cause unfocussed daydreaming and inability to concentrate. Researchers have said that watching television is similar to staring at a blank wall for several hours.

We all like to watch TV from time to time, and this is not meant to suggest that people should never watch TV again. However, it is only fair that people understand what happens to the brain each time it is exposed to television.

In an experiment in 1969, Herbert Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person’s brainwaves switched from Beta waves– brainwaves associated with active, logical thought– to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted to Beta waves.

Research indicates that most parts of the brain, including parts responsible for logical thought, tune out during television viewing. The impact of television viewing on one person’s brain state is obviously not enough to conclude that the same consequences apply to everyone, but research has repeatedly shown that watching television produces brainwaves in the low Alpha range.

Advertisers have known about this for a long time and they know how to take advantage of this passive, suggestible, brain state of the TV viewer. There is no need for an advertiser to use subliminal messages. The brain is already in a receptive state, ready to absorb suggestions, within just a few seconds of the television being turned on. All advertisers have to do is flash a brand across the screen, and then attempt to make the viewer associate the product with something positive.   (Emphasis mine) [3]

Noted health expert, Dr. Mercola, has stated that:

TV is one of the most powerful brainwashing devices there is. [4]

One of the primary reasons that we have Christians departing from sound doctrine is the constant re-indoctrination of Babylon that occurs daily in our lives through the media of television!  Here is an interesting statistic:

According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube. [5]

In less than one minute of watching TV, we are placed into a susceptible state of suggestion.  This alpha state of suggestibility is reached when we are wide awake.  Imagine the damage that can be accomplished when we fall asleep while watching TV.  All of the information and indoctrination flows into our unconscious mind completely unfiltered!

Over the years, I have heard from missionaries that were out of the country and on the mission field for many years.  Once they arrived back in the United States and turned on their televisions, they were both shocked and dismayed at what they found.   The country and culture that they had left a decade before no longer existed.  Television had been used to slowly move our entire culture toward a more pagan (anti-God) agenda.  They discovered the secret of Hollywood:  it no longer reflects our culture — it transforms it!  The questions that we must ask ourselves are:  (1) who is using television to change our culture, and (2) what is their agenda?  The answers to those questions are alarming for the believer.  The overall agenda is to move the entire nation away from God and biblical living, while setting the stage for a New World Order and the Antichrist!

We have become techno-induced zombies that are preprogrammed to reject God’s instruction and to embrace Babylonian (Luciferian) control!

Becoming Proactive

1.  Taking Control of Our TV Time

I am not suggesting that we throw out all of our televisions.  What I propose is that we retake the control of our lives from our TVs (and other technologies) and become proactive in what we are feeding our minds.  We need to first adjust our paradigm regarding television use.

  •  Although television was our babysitter and companion growing up, it is time to put aside childish things and become adults. Be selective concerning the programs that you watch; when it is over, turn the TV off.
  •  Do not allow yourself to default into “entertainment mode” while watching TV. Choose to analyze what you are watching; keep yourself in the beta wave state.  When you are confronted with something that goes against the Word of God (or just general decency), declare aloud that it is wrong (this is important for your unconscious mind).
  •  If you need background noise in your home, use praise and worship music instead of having your TV on.
  •  Spend some time reading on a daily basis.

Remember, technology is here to serve you:  you control it.  The moment that you feel that the roles have switched, you need to back off and reassess your situation.

2.  Become a Lifelong Learner

Becoming a lifelong learner may be a paradigm shift for you.  However, at the foundational level, this is how your mind operates.  Everything that you have ever experienced is recorded in detail within your unconscious mind, even while you were in the womb.  All of that information is used to form your basic perception of reality.  Your mind is continually looking for new or updated information.  Either you can be in control of the information that is constantly being fed into your mind, or you can allow the world to do it for you.

The ancient Hebrews understood this concept of the mind continually looking for updated information.  I want you to read what the Apostle James admonishes all believers to actively work on in their lives.

James 1:21-25 (KJV)

21  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

The Greek word that James uses for meekness is prautes {prah-oo’-tace}, which means “mildness of disposition, gentleness of spirit, and meekness.” [6]  Although all of the past data stored within our unconscious mind may disagree with the instruction of the Word of God, we need to approach the Word with a gentleness of spirit so that the Word can correct us.   I don’t know of a single human being (except for Jesus) that has everything in their life right; that’s why we need a savior!

Since we are all hardwired for lifelong learning, it is time to become proactive.  We need to use all of the technologies available to us to learn the right information.  We all carry smart phones that can utilize MP3 files; stock them up with good teaching and powerful audio books.  We all have tablets, notebook computers, and TVs that can play videos; use them to watch informative/transformational teachings too.  As of this writing, our ministry has 185 videos available on our YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/biblicallife) and nearly 400 teachings in MP3 at our congregational site (http://www.biblicallifeassembly.org).  All of these free resources are our investment into you and your family.  If you get tired of listening to me, there are thousands of hours of anointed videos by Dr. Chuck Missler, Dr. Tom Horn, Rob Skiba, Prophecy in the News, and so many more available on YouTube and throughout the Internet.

Don’t become a Babylonian techno-induced zombie!  It is time for you to become an active participant in feeding the right information into your ever-learning mind.
