Understanding the Kingdom – Part 1.
In this new series, Dr. Michael Lake will examine how the Kingdom of God is revealed from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. In fact, Kingdom is one of the main subjects of the Word of God and is quintessential for the equipping of the Remnant in the Last Days. In this session, we examine both the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Darkness are revealed in the first chapter of Genesis, the mechanisms that God used to displace darkness, how only Kingdom bring abundance, and what God considered the true blessing of mankind.
Dr. Michael K. Lake is the Chancellor and Founder of Biblical Life College and Seminary, a contributing author of the best-seller Blood on the Altar: The Coming Christian vs. Christian War, and the book that is setting the Internet of fire, The Shinar Directive: Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition.
Dr. Tom Horn of SkyWatchTV Interviews Dr. Michael Lake, Author of The Shinar Directive
The first episode of SkyWatch TV features Dr. Tom Horn and Dr. Michael Lake discussing the new book, The Shinar Directive: Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition.
In the ancient plains of Shinar, an evil was born: the first world king, the prototype transhuman, the ultimate despot, the Son of Perdition—Nimrod. In Babylon, the Son of Perdition devised the Shinar Directive: the enslaving of humanity and the war against the God of Heaven. God’s intervention at the Tower of Babel only delayed Nimrod’s hellish plans. As the powers of Mystery Babylon gather to create the new Tower of Babel and to prepare for the Son of Perdition’s return, Heaven is issuing a clarion call to the Remnant: Know the strategies of the enemy, untangle yourself from them, and become the victorious Church!
by Michael K. Lake, Th.D.
The origin of Freemasonry, according to Masonic scholars, focuses on two theories:
- Nimrod was the first Mason and established the order.
- The Knights Templar and their secrets evolved into modern-day Freemasonry.
I have been asked over the years which theory is correct. The answer is both. The seeds of Freemasonry were planted in Babylon, watered by Egypt, and nurtured over the millennia by the mystery religions. And I do not believe I need to convince those who would read my book that Freemasonry is esoteric and part of the mystery religions. The cursory readings of Albert Pike or Manly P. Hall (or even just the names of their works) would convince any open-minded believer. However, I will say this for any member of the Blue Lodge that might stumble upon this work: The oath and ceremony you went through to enter the Lodge is word for word and step for step the same ritual used to become a witch within any coven.[ii] (So which came first, the coven or the Lodge?) Again, the words of the apostle Paul are more relevant today than when he wrote them long ago:
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14–18, emphasis added)
The Scope of Freemasonry
We need to understand that Freemasonry literally covers the globe. As the influence of Europe and later America began to swell internationally, Freemasonry spread throughout the world. It is interesting to note that Skull and Bones (an elite Masonic organization) member George W. Bush went to war against 33rd-degree Freemason and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-trained operative Osama bin Laden.[iii] This has led many to believe that America was behind the attack on 9/11/01. I believe their scope of vision is too small. Every bit of information I write about in The Shinar Directive including the reoccurrence of the number eleven (which is very significant in both Masonic and esoteric workings) points to the fact that it was the work of the Luciferian Elite. The tragedy of 9/11 was simply one piece of a much larger puzzle to facilitate a New World Order (and not, as many have postulated, to move America toward neoconservatism).
Masonic Lodges worldwide are the recruiting grounds for the Elite in search of new ground troops. Freemasons who have the temperament and belief system for the luciferian work are shuffled off to the side and then brought into separate circles of influence within the Masonic system. The average members of the Lodge labor within their communities and become the outer layer of protection for the occult core. Those members become part of local churches, civic organizations, businesses, and political parties. Whether or not they realize it, they are indeed connected to those within the darker circles of Freemasonry, with a stronger cord than the tow that was originally placed around their necks. I have mentored aspirants of the gospel ministry now for more than thirty years, and I have counseled students regarding the stifling of revival in their ministries by certain members of the board or congregation. Many times those individuals were Freemasons. I remember a particular case in the early 1990s: God began moving in the ministry of one of our students. During a vacation Bible school, he saw nearly seventy children accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior within a two-week period. Any Christian would have been overjoyed by such an event. Within less than a week after this event, he was fired from his position as pastor. He later discovered that most of board members were Masons and active members of the local Lodge. Needless to say, he was dismayed and devastated by the actions against him.
The Shinar Directive – Part 7
The Institutes of Nimrod
By Michael K. Lake, Th.D.
Nimrod developed systems to replace man’s walk with God in every aspect of life with absolute dependence upon those systems of control (system vs. relationship). I believe there are three basic facets of Babylon or, as many prophecy teachers have designated, the “Three Babylons.”
In the last days, God will judge these three interlocking Babylons (or Babylonian systems). They are 1) Financial Babylon; 2)Political Babylon; and 3) Religious Babylon
Let’s define each of these for the sake of clarity.
Financial Babylon: Financial Babylon controls not only the finances of the world, but any resource that can translate into wealth: precious metals, gems, energy (oil, electric, nuclear power, etc.), water, food, medicine, illegal drugs, media, education, and even people (remember, in Babylon, people are considered a resource).
This financial control is established through an international, centralized banking system operated solely by the Elite. Nations no longer manage their currencies; they are handled through this central banking system. The Federal Reserve is no more controlled by the government than is Federal Express. Doc Marquis points out in his video series, The Secrets of the Illuminati, that all the nations involved in the War on Terror or those that are part of the Arab Spring (i.e., Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, etc.) refused to become a part of the international, centralized banking system of the Rothschild dynasty. The turmoil within those nations is designed to change the governmental regimes to ones that will be more compliant to the control of their finances by Financial Babylon (with the side benefit of inflating the price of oil, another control mechanism). Usually, the first part of nation building that the US assists with, after the change in regimes, is the establishment of a centralized banking system.
I also believe that Financial Babylon is the most powerful of the three. Finances build political parties, fuel elections, sway politicians’ votes, control who gains media coverage, and even control which ministries move into prominence and whose messages are suppressed (although the Internet is currently giving voice to many faithful ministries today). This influence is so pervasive in the United States that, in a study published by Princeton University, researchers declared that our nation was no longer a democracy: it is now an oligarchy.[i] Wikipedia defines an oligarchy as follows:
Oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία (oligarkhía); from ὀλίγος (olígos), meaning “few”, and ἄρχω (arkho), meaning “to rule or to command”) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next, but inheritance is not a necessary condition for the application of this term.[ii]
How has America moved from a democracy to an oligarchy? The answer is: Through the riches and control of Financial Babylon. Without the proper financial backing, few candidates have any chance of winning elections.
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
As 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).
This 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.”
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.
Enter 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 Shinar Directive Interview with Derek Gilbert and Dr. Michael K. Lake
At the end of October, I was invited to the new SkyWatchTV studio to film a pilot episode with Gary Stearman. There were also several other Christian authors to film episodes as well. I had the pleasure of meeting Derek and Sharon Gilbert. The Gilberts host two radio/podcast shows: PID Radio and View from My Dunker, as well as authoring several books on end-time prophecy. During our visit in Crane, MO, Derek was kind enough to interview me regarding my new book, The Shinar Directive. The Gilberts have given me permission to rebroadcast that episode for Kingdom Intelligence Briefing.
