IN A RECENT MINI-ARTICLE, I wrote that the present circumstances surrounding the death of Queen Elizabeth — the highly orchestrated grief, pre-programmed through many years, and all the outrageous and idolatrous pomp — are “like a rehearsal”. I also said that those circumstances are an extension and quickening of the circumstances surrounding the death and funeral of King Charles’ ex-wife, Diana Spencer, in 1997, which I also regarded as “a rehearsal” in articles I wrote at the time. Rehearsal for what, though? That is the question; and it is one which I will answer during the course of this article.

In my recent book, “Discerning the Signs of the Times”, I referred to a “central leitmotif” which lies at the heart of all political global developments today. This leitmotif is that all those developments, all of them, are happening as part of the build-up to an eventual one-world government headed up by the “man of lawlessness” whom disciples of Christ will recognise as the Antichrist, and whom the majority of the world’s population will revere. This applies to these ‘rehearsals’ also — which are experiments in mass manipulation, so that the popular mind will be infused with the right level of hypnotic delusion to believe whatever is concocted for them to believe. Astonishing though it may seem to many, and as I will conclusively show below, they are surely part of the build-up to the eventual revealing of the Antichrist. “Experiments by whom?” you may ask. By extremely accomplished masters of mind-control in intelligence agencies working as enforcers for the demonically-driven power-elite on this planet. If you think that could not possibly happen, what do you think lay behind the perpetuation of the Covid-19 debacle of the past 2+ years? It was entirely a spook-driven event, working with psychologists to condition the public’s behaviour. (See the proofs for that, even links to official government documentation, in my 2021 article “You Have Been Spooked”).

One of the great blights of modern life is the cult of the personality, otherwise known as the idolization of celebrities. People fawning all over other (mostly vacuous and narcissistic) people who have somehow become famous because of a ridiculously over-inflated view of what they do and who they are. Sometimes (rarely), what someone does and who they are is actually worthy of some respect; but the worthy ones are mostly unsung heroes and heroines. In this world, mostly the unworthy get honoured, while the truly worthy are ignored and die in obscurity. One of the principal reasons for this is that most people who get well-known are fake and what you know of them has been hyped up by the media, their agents and assorted PR agencies. This is just as true of those in the royal family, for they are hyped-up celebrities too, with everything about them carefully crafted to bemuse a gullible public which craves an imagined stability in an insane world. People revere celebrities even though they know nothing of those people’s hearts or who they really are in private. The same is true of the royal family. One really knows nothing of any significance about them other than what is carefully fed to and through the media. I could never have profound admiration and reverence for someone who is just a media invention or promotion.

There is no justification whatsoever for the kind of idolatry that is given to so many so-called celebrities. This idolatry has been advocated and encouraged hugely in the media, for it sells. But, at an even deeper level, this idolatry has been exploited to the full by forces behind the scenes, plainly for the purposes of population mind-control. For the mass of people have been progressively dumbed-down and stupefied (in the true sense of the word, in being made unable to think or speak coherently and logically), as if mesmerized by trivia to maintain their minds and souls on the most superficial level possible — the deep things of life being out of bounds.

This vacant, programmable, dumbed-down mindset has not come about by coincidence but has been worked towards relentlessly for years. It is continually being worked on to hone it to an ever greater state of perfection. This is necessary in order to prepare the world for the time that the majority of its population will believe what the sacred texts call “The Lie”, which I will explain more about further below. Everything which happens in this world is being masterminded as a preparation for that. The royal death and funeral is ‘just another brick in the wall’ in terms of making as many people as gullible to mass programming as possible. According to some media sources, at least 5.1 billion people watched the Queen’s funeral on television, that is about 64% which is almost two-thirds of the world’s population and the largest single event ever watched or streamed in history. However, other sources (e.g. BBC Radio Times) say that it was around 4 billion, which is still pretty astonishing at 55% of the world’s population. In the UK, 37 million (55% of the country’s population) watched it. I have been awaiting this event for years, knowing that it would be a watershed moment in the establishing of Satan’s kingdom as a perpetuator of false unity.

Let me put that last statement into a graspable context, as many readers may be wondering why I should bring “Satan” into an article about the royal funeral. Shortly before His death, the Christ, who came to this earth dimension as God the Creator manifested in the flesh, said an extraordinary thing: “Now is the judgement of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out” (Gospel of John, chapter 12, verse 31). This was a clear signal and statement of intention concerning Christ’s role in evicting the fallen archangel we now know as Satan from the position he had gained going right back to the beginning of the human creation when he convinced those first humans that they could be “like God” or “as gods” through disavowing themselves of God and ‘signing up’ with him instead. It worked. That was the Fall of humanity right there. But there have been vast consequences down the ages as the demonic realm (the angels who originally fell with Satan) has dominated the influence over history — even at one stage causing a massive outbreak of evil through impregnating many women, an event which led to a hideous demon/human mutation (the Nephilim) and the subsequent divine judgement of the Flood (Book of Genesis, chapters 6-8).

Now, you may be thinking even more urgently, “What on earth could all this have to do with the Queen’s funeral?” Good question. I will tell you, but you will have to be patient and read through to the end of this little article. Then, it will all become clear. So please hear me out. Two thousand years ago, just as He had predicted, Christ did actually evict Satan from his usurper role of “ruler of this world” by breaking through the chains of death which had blighted the world up to that point as a result of that Fall of humans I mentioned above. The reason for that victory over Satan is because “it was impossible for Him to be held in the clutches of death” (Book of Acts, chapter 2, verse 24). Therefore, His resurrection was an inevitability, an event by which Satan was completely blindsided (Letter to the Colossians, chapter 2, verse 15).

Now you may say with even more poignancy, “If Christ scored a victory over Satan and cast him out of his position as ruler of the world, how come the world is still in such a mess?” Again, good question. I like questions, especially from people willing to learn. Questioning is how we gain an education. The answer to your question is this: Technically speaking, Christ could have wound up the history of this cosmos at the time of His victory, but that was not in God’s plan of the ages. The period of time between Christ’s ascension and His return at the end of the age — however long that turns out to be — is a vital part of history which has had to be ‘acted out’. In fact, one can say that this period of time is history involves a kind of “mopping-up operation”, during which there has been a kind of ‘stay of final execution’ to allow two things to happen: 1) To allow human and demonic evil to come to their head and reveal their true colours, then they will be ripe for a terrible judgement at Christ’s return; and 2) To enable countless souls to be saved by becoming followers and disciples of Christ and thereby to later become the population of the new cosmos which will be created after the judgemental destruction of the present one. Everything which has been happening in the world during the last two-thousand years has been, and still is, part of a vast cosmic spiritual battle which even extends right into the heavenly realms outside of this dimension (e.g. Book of Revelation, chapter 12, verses 7-9)

Where the “rehearsals” that I mentioned fit into the picture is like this: Shortly before the end of this age, Satan will finally be permitted to stage the one-world global empire/kingdom he has been trying to build from the beginning. Only then will all the conditions be in place for him to be able to do it — the science, the communications, and above all the willingness of all the nations to be subsumed by his global government after generations of plotting, conniving and conspiring. When that time comes, it will be as if almost the whole world will have been hypnotized and programmed not only to want a global government (which will no doubt be begged-for on the back of catastrophes and a terrible lack of peace and societal security) but also to receive with joy the head of that global government, who genuine followers and disciples of Christ (as opposed to the false church which you see everywhere) will easily recognise as the Antichrist and will therefore subsequently be terribly persecuted and killed in what Christ referred to as a period of “great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again” (Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verse 21), and is inexorably heading to its grand denouement.

There are four verses in the sacred texts which describe that time perfectly in one of the most important prophecies in the New Testament. Let me open this up because, as I said above, every major development in the world politically and governmentally is being honed to lead to that time. In the gathering of disciples in the ancient Greek town of Thessalonica (now known as Thessaloniki), around 50 AD, some of them were wrongfully teaching that the return of Christ was imminent, necessitating the apostle Paul to write a letter to them (his second letter to that town) explaining that two events had to happen before Christ would return. The first would be a great apostasy and the second would be the revealing of the Antichrist (Second Letter to the Thessalonians, chapter 2, verse 3). Then the end of the age, with the return of the Christ in a cataclysmic event, like a flash of lightning from one end of the cosmos to the other, would come.

How is this apostasy characterized? The word ‘apostasy’ is itself of serious significance in the moral and spiritual life of humanity. It means an abandonment of faithful allegiance to something, or the renunciation of moral principles, or a complete betrayal of religious or spiritual affiliation. Alternative expressions would be ‘falling away’ or ‘utter rebellion’. To apostatise represents a disintegration of moral and spiritual principles into betrayal, dissolution, debauchery, degeneracy or licentiousness. Christ also referred to this global apostasy when He said: “Many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of the majority will grow cold” (Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verses 11-12). This apostasy to which Christ and Paul were referring is not a mere falling away from the faith (i.e. a purely religious apostasy). It is an all-out rebellion against natural and Divine law — a mass global rebellion against God the Creator and the resultant hubristic promotion of the self. In other words, what this great apostasy entails is the pervasive cancer of egocentrism and narcissism — the putting of oneself on a pedestal and a revelling in one’s imagined autonomy and delusional independence from one’s Creator, with all that follows on from that, and even the idolizing of that which is other-than-God.

Although previously operating in the world to a greater or lesser degree, this great apostasy is a sign which gathers steam in intensity as the end of the age draws near, coming to a frantic climax of rebellion and lawlessness. By “lawlessness”, I am not so much referring to going against human laws (although that is certainly part of it), but against Divine law and the universal moral law (natural law) which is inscribed within the essence of every human being by creation and which is known universally, even though it is suppressed by hardened hearts. Those who revel in their rebellion against the Divine can only alienate themselves from the fulness of life and thereby increasingly gravitate into a downward spiral of darkness (This process of human degeneration away from the knowledge of God can be clearly seen in the Letter to the Romans, chapter 1, verses 18-32). Indeed, an all-pervasive, unprecedented moral darkness across the entire face of this earth is precisely what will characterise the absolute end of this age, just prior to the revealing of the Antichrist and also during his brief reign, for it will be brief as Christ “will slay him with the breath of His mouth and annihilate by the majesty of His arrival” (Second Letter to the Thessalonians, chapter 2, verse 8).

Now that we have seen what it is that characterizes the great apostasy which will overtake the world as the end of this age draws near, I have to say that much of that appears to already be the case in our own time, and gathering apace with the passing of each year. The disintegration of moral and spiritual principles into betrayal, dissolution, debauchery, degeneracy, licentiousness, lawlessness, a plethora of false christs and false prophets, while the love of many grows cold. Sodomy is now not only normative but it is even regarded with extreme ‘pride’ and labelled with the word “love”. God-given gender is sacrificed on the altar of a pretended ‘diversity’, and people with obvious mental health problems posing as ‘drag-queens’ are hired by local authorities to impose their warped vision of sexuality on small children in libraries and schools, while those who dare to object to this debauchery are pilloried as being guilty of ‘hate-crimes’. Satan must be rejoicing at the ease with which he can inveigle the mass of humanity into accepting the strategies he has devised to bring about the downfall of this civilization. Meanwhile, the same mass of humanity subserviates itself to amoral governments and globalist organisations, willingly allowing themselves to be programmed to behave exactly as required by those amoral bodies. This is apostasy in action.

Regarding the revealing of the Antichrist, we have not seen that yet, for the one-world government which he will lead has not yet been realised — though it is actively being planned meticulously and touted by the requisite parties, as I have detailed in many other articles. That future event still awaits its fulfilment. But the circumstances which will characterize it have been spelled out in the prophecy I mentioned above. I want to break that prophecy down for you, because it is this for which the events of the present time are a ‘rehearsal’. Here is the text, in which I have brought out the heart of the word-meanings in the original Koine Greek:

“The coming of the lawless one will be energized by Satan, with every kind of miraculous power, sign, and pseudo-wonder, and with every heinous fraud directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason God will energize their minds with erroneous thinking so that they believe the lie, in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in unrighteousness”.

Second Letter to the Thessalonians, chapter 2, verses 9-12

This really is an astonishing text! Although Paul does not use the term “the Antichrist”, but rather “man of lawlessness” and “lawless one”, it is clear that this is to whom verses 3-12 refer. It tallies perfectly with another major prophetic text which clearly culminates in the Antichrist in the Book of Revelation, chapter 13, and in a major prophecy of Christ about the same event in the 24th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew. The two major elements in the above text are the impostorship of the Antichrist, energized by Satan, and the judgement of God on it all, in which He energizes the minds of those who follow the Antichrist with “erroneous thinking”. This is a terrible pronouncement of the way that if you oppose God, then God will oppose you and actually deepen your apostasy so that your state will be even worse than before. If people understood this, they would behave very differently. It clearly says that because people will refuse the love of the truth and be taken in by all the miraculous powers, signs, pseudo-wonders (sorceries) and heinous frauds of the Antichrist (all energized by Satan), therefore God will energize their minds with erroneous thinking. The Greek there translated as “erroneous thinking” (or “strong delusion” in some versions) literally means “wandering”. They will be energized with minds which wander right off-track. In modern vernacular, it can be said that they will be “away with the fairies”, a most apt saying! And the purpose of that is “so that they believe the lie”. The Greek there is “The lie” not “a lie”. What is “The Lie”? “The Lie” is surely the same lie as that which was told to those first humans at the time of the Fall: that God is a liar and an impostor (which is a classic example of what is known as “projection”). That will be a major platform of the Antichrist, who will not only deny that the one true God is the Creator but he will also denounce the idea of Christ as God manifested in the flesh, for such a denial is of “the spirit of the antichrist” (First Letter of John, chapter 4, verse 3). The Antichrist will then proclaim himself as the true God and be worshipped as such, as the sacred texts reveal (Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verse 15; Second Letter to the Thessalonians, chapter 2, verse 4; Book of Revelation, chapter 13, verses 4 & 12). These are the components of “The Lie” which the vast majority of people on this earth will believe. And the reason they will believe them is because they will have already completely renounced a love of the truth and thus rendered themselves unsavable, irredeemable.

I do not think that people realize the seriousness of this prophetic text. It is massive. The world will be filled with an overwhelming majority of people whose minds will have been taken over by the state and its leader and their collective lies. This is why I say that these protracted scenes of mass mourning for figures of state, which have clearly been manipulated as part of a psychological operation, are large-scale rehearsals for the time to come when almost the whole world — having been previously programmed to irrationally love celebrity figures of royalty or the state — will bow down before a satanic proxy leader on earth and believe his lies and sorceries without question, for he will be even more of a “celebrity” than the Queen. If 5.1 billion people (almost two thirds of the world’s population) — or even if it was 4 billion (55% of the world’s population) tune in for a whole day to weep over the funeral of a 96 year old woman about whom they know absolutely nothing other than the very carefully massaged PR presentation (machinated by spooks) which they have observed on their TVs, how much more of this world is going to tune in to watch the Antichrist in action and hang on his every false pronouncement with raptured awe. Truly, we are now in the midst of a rehearsal for this future event, with the majority on this earth surrendering their minds in a spirit of false unity to a chimera of celebrity which they imagine to be wholesome. And there will be more of these rehearsals to come.

We do not merely live in interesting times; we also live in virulently pre-programming times. One needs to develop the utmost wisdom and discernment to pick one’s way through the consummate deceptions which will characterize the run-up to the end of this age. The only way to do this cleanly and wholly is to become a disciple of the Christ as we enter the build-up to the climax of the history of this present doomed cosmos and ensure our place in the cosmos to come. There is only one battle, with the Christ on one side and Satan on the other. If you are not standing with Christ, then you are by default standing with Satan. Now is the time to decide with whom you stand; for it will have eternal consequences.
