SIGNS OF THE TIMES

Revelations 13:18, "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of man; and his number is Six Hundred threescore and six."
Yesterday evening I was relaxing in front of the television watching the national broadcast of the Boston Celtics vs the Miami Heat; which was the opening game for the regular season of the National Basketball Association (NBA). This national and international broadcast reaches millions of viewers across the country and the globe and likewise this is a great opportunity for advertisers and marketeers to promote products and other goods during these types of telecasts. During a TV timeout, I noticed a commercial for Hewlett Packard & Beats By Dre headphones. Apparently, Dr. Dre, HP built a line of computers with Beats Audio™ technology so you can hear the music the way the artist intended.  I have to admit the first time I saw it I wasn't really paying much attention and I let it go by without giving it a second thought. Fortunately for me the commercial was played several times during the TNT broadcast, so I got several opportunities to see what was really going on. And, the third time I saw it and what caught my attention really just blew me completely away. If you haven't seen the commercial yet, take a few minutes to check it out.

What is this on his face?

As you can see in the commercial an unidentified woman is walking with a cart, with what appears to be 3 Beats By Dre microchips to be inserted into the hard drives of 3 HP laptops by Hip Hop Mogul Dr. Dre.  And, as she is walking the camera takes a complete picture of all 3 chips on the cart and all together they closely resembles the sign of the "Mark of the Beast" 666. In addition they seem to be strategically placed to form a pyramid as well.  It's interesting that the commercial conveniently included 3 micro chips with 3 accompanying HP laptops. The convenient use of 3 chips and 3 computers was not coincidental but by design, especially given the close resemblance of the logo used to advertise Beats By Dre to the number 6. Take a look.

Why not 2 micro chips and 2 laptops or 4 micro chips and 4 laptops, who decided on the number 3 and why? Well, I believe you all know the answer to that question. And, thus the reason for this week's blog post. It is no secret the connections between the music industry, the occult and devil worship, and this is just one of many examples that we have identified in previous blog posts and even on our Youtube Channel PSTRNIMMONSTV. On our Youtube Channel we have video footage of a Bible lesson that we taught for the Young Apostolic Students for Christ at Wayne State University entitled: "Sleeping With The Enemy." This is a very eye-opening and informative bible lesson about the music industry and its occult influences and how it is has crept its way into the church. When you get a minute we encourage you to check it out.  But, more importantly these images were broadcast right across the airwaves in front of a captivated audience, not one or two times but several times and I wonder how many people actually notice the 666 in the commercial. Not very many.

When we refer to these signs and symbols of the occult that are intertwined into music, videos, movies and the like, we often think that they have to be decoded or unmasked in order for the average person to see them. Not so! These images are being broadcast during regular TV programming without censorship or prejudice, and they are many times overlooked by the average person, because we don't believe the TV is used and being used as an instrument of mind control and manipulation. Advertisers do not spend millions and millions of dollars putting together marketing campaigns just for novelty sake, but they are plotting and scheming on ways to get more consumers attention so they can in turn get more dollars and revenue for whatever it is that they are selling.  What is interesting is that the FCC continues to scrutinize television shows, TV ads and the other media for nudity, profanity and other socially offensive material, but when it comes to occult signs & symbols like this it goes by without anyone ever taking a second glance. But, again these are the "Signs of the Times." And, as we get closer to Jesus Christ return the more blatant and the more bolder the devil will get in the propagation of his messages of evil and deception across the globe.  We as Christians have already been forewarned by Jesus, in Mark 13th chapter vs 33-37.

"Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."

What is interesting is that within these 4 verses in Mark, Jesus uses the word "watch" 4 times, which means He is putting great emphasis on what we should be doing as Christians. His over emphasis of the word "watch" also explicitly suggests that there is something that we should be looking for as the times draw closer and closer to the end. And, signs like these, which are being seen everywhere nowadays, are what I believe Jesus was speaking of and talking about, when He admonishes us to "WATCH."  You not only see it in commercials but you've also seen the "666" sign  from some your favorite artist and celebrities and probably didn't even know it.

So, there you have it, the shrewdness and cunning-ness of our adversary the devil. And, yes there will be those who will continue to choose to ignore these signs or to even argue the very existence of them. However, I feel it is my duty as a minister of the Gospel to expose the enemy on every front. As God reveals the devil's plans to us it is our endeavor to share those plans with you. If nothing else these signs should tell us as Christians that we are living in the last days. And, these signs should also tell us to get our houses in order, because the RAPTURE is soon to come!

I'd like to know what are your thoughts on this subject? Do you believe what we're saying or do you believe that we are like many other conspiracy theorist, just digging for a story to post to bring attention to our personal blogs. I invite all suitors to comment. I'm not afraid of debate or discussion as long as we keep the discussion within its proper context. I'm interested in your comments and your dialogue, remember you can post your responses directly to your own personal Facebook pages. I hope this week's post is a blessing to you, feel free to post it on your Facebook profiles, tweet it, e-mail it and share it with someone.

As I close, I leave you with the timely instructions of the Master, "Watch!"
