Olympic Ceremony Symbolism - Part One
The closing ceremony of the 2008 Olympics held in Beijing China on August 8-24, 2008 was a sign, actually a cluster of signs set in the midst of some closely related signs taking place around the globe. Because this is such a big deal, a separate sign was received on a personal level just prior to the event as a "heads up," an alert to be watchful for what may be recognized as the primary signification of this set of signs - the baptism of the lawless one.
This event that is referred to more popularly as the appearing of the Antichrist was presented in Beijing and dramatized on many levels that were each cloaked in just enough symbolism to assure the effort's success.
The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.
Without knowing what it was that was being acted out, one can hardly interpret what was being signaled. Few even since have recognized the presence of any signaling whatsoever. What you're going to read and see in the collection of images in this series of writings testifies of what remarkable things were being signaled and what the Lord revealed to me about them. When the Lord Y'shua HaMashiach who is the revealer of secrets opens the eyes one may perceive a thing. Without the requisite enabling grace to see beyond the veil even this will remain hidden. I pray the Lord will show you what He has for you.
A plan is being executed that involves bringing the whole world into subjection. If you don't believe it, keep reading and consider some startling evidence! What's presented on this page is a necessary introduction but you'll quickly find that the more deep and remarkable aspects are addressed in some of the following "chapters" of this work.
The closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics illustrate intimate sexual acts resulting in conception. There is a physical interpretation, and, beyond it, a spiritual. Due to the sexual nature of the ceremony let me caution you in advance that this material is intended for mature adults.
Please pardon my coarse language but it must be told that the Olympic Ceremony signs declare to the world and worldly: "People, you are being screwed!" When you understand the signs you may find this statement is a succinct distillation with enduring emotional residue.
Before I launch into the Olympic signs I'm going to share about the alert that was given through a watchful friend. I didn't come to this as a matter of personal interest in the Olympics. I didn't even watch the games or ceremonies on TV because I was already fully engaged in another matter. The Lord brought this subject to my attention through a sister in the Lord in such a way as to assure us that this was His involving us in a very important sign.
On the morning of August 21 I got a phone call from a dear sister in the Lord. She had earlier that morning had an odd experience that brought to her mind what I've written about the counterfeit baptism. In the bathroom of the house where she was living at the time there were shelves above the commode. On the shelves were two angels and one teddy bear between them that belonged to her house-mates. That morning, my friend discovered the teddy bear in the commode. She took the picture you see here on the left. There were no small children around but there were two pet cats in the household. My friend suspected the cats had a role in this activity so she was talking to them about which of the two might have knocked the teddy bear into the commode. As she did she felt she heard in the spirit, "Are you sure that's what happened?" The counterfeit baptism immediately came to her mind, given that the bear got a dunking. Thinking back on the morning, she later remembered vaguely hearing a strange noise that was not the splash she would expect a teddy bear falling into a commode to make. It was instead a peculiar flushing sound. When I sent an email to everyone on my distribution list a couple days later, on the 23rd, I shared this story and wrote: "That teddy's baptism in the commode may be prophetic, perhaps a reminder to keep watching for signs of the baptism of the lawless one." It was indeed!
The teddy bear got baptized in the commode on the twenty-first and the report was published in an email on the twenty-third. We were on the alert. The following day, August 24, the Olympics ended and the dramatic closing ceremony was televised. This sister recorded it and, while watching it later, perceived a sign with the very meaning for which we were led to watch! Thank you Lord and thank you sister! She called and told me she was stunned with what she saw, recognizing in the dramatic production the baptism of the lawless one!
Here's a collection of images, mostly from the main fertilization sequence of the Chinese presentation.
When I began to consider what my friend shared I found some images of the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics and sensed right away she had received some valuable insight!
Fertility, reproduction and marriage are prominent and recurring themes in the ceremony. The modeling is of human life, of the natural and supernatural. It is also biblical, right out of the pages of The Book as you will see. It is both a "First Adam" and a "Last Adam" story. There is both mortality and immortality. The sign has many facets, of procreation, Creation, purpose and destiny. I had written back in April 2008 about my expectation of the coming of a counterfeit wedding, an insight that arose from a set of signs and reflected what I understand as the coming genuine. This union is one of the central elements of the symbolism. The closing ceremony is a cloaked announcement of the conception and birth of the counterfeit second Adam, picturing also his union with a bride with the participation of the world and fully sanctioned by the organized religions and political bodies. I'm not bringing all this to your attention to exalt the parties who put this show together or to praise the quality of their work. I'm pointing out what most people have missed, that a counterfeit has been presented right under the world's nose. Few have discerned the sign because it is cloaked in symbolism. Yet, those familiar with the new age, Satanism, Kabbalah and the open-eyed among the saints will understand, to varying degrees with varying interpretations.
The symbols are among the primary themes of Genesis and Revelation, and indeed the whole Bible as supporting what is contained in these two books. If you aren't familiar with Genesis 6, Revelation 12, 13, 17 and 18, Jude, and the book of Enoch, you may struggle with some of the symbols presented.
There is both a genuine and a counterfeit in the matters signified. One plan will ultimately result in the greatest freedom, while the other, the greatest bondage. The very course of humanity is modeled for us in this grandest of theatrical productions, the plan for mankind's existence from Creation to his ultimate destiny. Yet, those who know by revelation insight what is true and genuine perceive the Olympic version as a perversion, exalting and advancing in no small way the counterfeit.
At some point you have to consider how much effort and expense went into the Olympics that year. The closing ceremony put the cap on the whole of it, and just that capping alone was pretty memorable. Figures being tossed around were that $41 billion dollars (US) were spent on Olympic infrastructure alone! That's not merely "a China thing" - it truly was a global effort.
Here's a symbol that should be pretty obvious, the setting for the closing ceremony. This took place in the Beijing National Stadium, the world's largest steel structure that was built specifically for these Olympics. It is known as the bird's nest, and the reason is pretty obvious from most exterior views. So, what is the purpose of a birds nest? Offspring! Procreation! Being fruitful and multiplying! Eggs are laid, incubated and hatched in the protected environment of a bird's nest. The hatchlings are cared for there until they reach a level of maturity where they achieve independence. That's what a bird's nest is for and it is precisely what we will find modeled within! This unique setting is further, as you will see, a large scale model of a human reproductive system!
The kind of offspring raised in the nest depends on the eggs. Whose nest is this Olympic bird's nest in Beijing, China? "The entire Olympic site is in the shape of a dragon, and no ordinary dragon either, but an ancient beast whose body has existed for millennia, forming the axis of imperial Beijing from north to south in accordance with the beliefs of feng shui." (Times Online) Clearly, the bird's nest is the dragon's lair, the eggs are the dragon's eggs and the offspring produced will be the dragon's own.
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
The biblical identity is quite clear. It takes no imagination whatsoever to see the connection. Demons are symbolized in the Bible as birds of the air. The dragon associated with China flys with great wings as a bird of the air.
in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
The dragon egg theme is evident in two very extravagant buildings built with the Olympics in mind: Terminal Three of the Beijing Airport is in the shape of a flying dragon. The National Grand Theatre is nicknamed the "alien egg."
This ancient beast and "bird of the air" has been appointed a season for his offspring, and the ceremonies broadcast from the dragon's lair tell the tale of what is appointed for our day! I think some who watched would say the closing ceremony to the Olympics was "one hell of a show" - and it literally is!
The symbolic meaning of the bird's nest is so easily discovered it hardly seems hidden at all. It is hidden though, hidden in plain sight for those with eyes to see. Many of the symbolic elements in this sign and in several connected signs are so obvious and easily found and confirmed that searching them out is like picking the proverbial low hanging fruit. Some will say about much of it, "Yeah, dude, it's China - what do you expect." What I expect is that those without spiritual discernment will dismiss this along with every other sign. I expect that the every word of the scriptures will come to pass as it is written. I expect that the Lord will be faithful to fulfill every promise! I expect the sovereign Lord will do nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. I expect those of us who watch faithfully will be rewarded for our obedience. That's what I expect!
Does the religious content of the Olympics seem out of place? It's no secret that the origin of this activity is ancient Greece. The Olympics are derived from the culture centered around the gods of Mount Olympus. It is the gods and their worship that is at the very core of these games.
What is known as the Olympic Anthem is actually the Olympic Hymn. Yes, a hymn is a religious song. Above are the lyrics of the original Hymn translated from the Greek into English:
Who is the "immortal spirit of antiquity"? Has the worship of the gods ceased? Are the gods worshiped merely the imaginations of a superstitious people, or have we been deceived about the gods and the people who worship them as a cover for their activity? Is the world that is the "vast temple To which all nations throng" the ultimate Temple of Zeus, as modeled in Denver's Mile High Stadium during the games in Beijing? The evidence is presented for your considered response to questions like these. The messages of the Olympic signs and those related to it that are addressed in this series of writings are for you. Your life is affected, your yesterdays, your tomorrows and your today. The answers to questions about the economic crisis, moral crisis and the conflicts of the nations are found in these signs.
After my sister in Messiah had brought this matter to my attention and I began to look into it, I noticed a microcosm of the whole in another scene. In the London presentation, in the song "Whole Lotta Love," and, in its setting, the core message is echoed so as to ensure we grasp the meaning. As I explored that scene's symbolic elements the light shed on the major scene, for me, got much brighter indeed! This is the subject of the next page in the sequence!
