Did St. John The Divine Cathedral Warn of Hurricane Sandy's Coming Disaster on it's Prophetic Pillars?



I first saw the pictures of the sculptures on the building of St. John the Divine Cathedral a few years ago at Vigilant Citizen http://vigilantcitizen.com/sinistersites/sinister-sites-st-john-the-divine-cathedral/. A few other websites host them as well. You can google them and find them yourself. But I have most, if not all of them, below. 
They seem to depict the Book of Revelation in the Bible, which was written by Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus Christ) through his most beloved apostle, John, when John was on the island of Patmos. John was exiled there for his preaching of the Gospel. If you don't believe we are in a spiritual battle for our souls, and if this doesn't convince you, I don't know what will.

St. John the Divine Cathedral also hosts an eerie pagan ritual every Halloween, which I also have a Youtube video of below. True Christians should have nothing to do with Halloween. This actually is the highest holy day for Witches, which they call Samhain. And believe me, they celebrate it. For followers of Yeshua, our call is only to preach the Gospel of Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus Christ). (But, I don't think this is what St. John the Divine Cathedral had in mind when they depicted it on their building.) We are commanded in the Bible to stay away from anything evil.

Ephesians 5:11-12 tells us:
11: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12: For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Verse 6 tells us why:
6: Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

So I can't understand St. John the Divine Cathedral hosting a Halloween event, not to mention how creepy it is. Evil expounds on this event. It is very eerie to say the least. But everything that pertains to St. John the Divine's Cathedral is eerie.

Here are some exerpts from the article at Vigilant Citizen:

The destruction of New York city (including the Twin Towers) sculpted right on the building… Strange occult symbols on the floor… Weird rituals being performed in the sanctuary… Home of the Temple of Understanding which admittedly seeks to instate a new world religion… This cathedral is definitively “different”, as some people might say. But the “difference” lies in the fact that the cathedral is in fact a temple of Neo-Pagan-Bordeline-Satanic-the-Environment-is-more-important-than-human-life beliefs. I personally couldn’t care less about each individual’s beliefs, but to trick unsuspecting church goers into an occult house of worship is nothing less than Evil.

“The pagan intellectuals reclothed their original ideas in a garment of christian phraseology but bestowed the keys of the symbolism only upon those duly initiated and bound to secrecy”

- Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Background and History of the Cathedral

This unfinished building has been claimed as being the world’s largest cathedral. It is realistic to maintain such high aspirations when your sources of funding include tycoons like JP Morgan and prominent figures like the Grand Master of the Masons of the state of New York. The completion of the cathedral was such a prized accomplishment for the Freemasons that it was featured on the front page of “Masonic World” of March 1925.

The article states:

“It is particularly fitting that the Masons, who were the principal builders of cathedrals and churches during the greatest cathedral-building period, should now have a prominent part in the movement to build America’s greatest cathedral (…) Little need be added to the story of Freemasonry during the cathedral-building period; its monuments are its best history, alike of its genius, its faith and its symbols.”

The article openly admits that masonic cathedrals represent the best legacy of the Brotherhood and the symbolism is prominently showcased. The masses are however too ignorant to recognize the meanings behind the art, so they just stare at them, thinking “it’s pretty nice”.

Freemasonry and the Occult
 
As you might know, Masonry has been, through the ages, the keeper of the “ancient mysteries”, which are occult and esoteric teachings only communicated to the initiates. I will not explain here the mystery religion as it takes several years of studies to get some understanding. I can however say that the occultists draw their teachings from ancient Egyptian, Babylonian, Kaballah and Gnostic cultures, who predate by many centuries the Christian era. Secret societies have been forced to hide the true nature of their philosophies in a veil of Christianity to avoid persecution by the Church. Freemasons and their fellow organisms, the Rosicrucian Order and the Knights Templar have all been accused of devil worship and idolatry in Europe.

While many low-level Freemasons may be practising Christians, those looking to reach higher degrees within the Brotherhood are required to study the tenants and the philosophies of the Mystery Religion.  Freemasons do not necessarily seek for the world to embrace their brand of spirituality, as it is strickly reserved to the initiates. However, people in high places, who often happen to be Masons are seeking to steer the population towards a “dumbed-down” version of their paganism, as you will read later.

The Symbols
The impressive exterior of the cathedral provokes a humbling sensation at whom gazes at it. But what are you humbling yourself to? We’ll examine the details of the artwork.

1- The Apocalyptic Pillar
On the western facade of the building, stonemasons have sculpted numerous scenes that seem oddly out of place for a Cathedral. The most striking one is the chilling depiction of the destruction of New York city and its landmarks.

Apocalyptic New York
The scene above was done in 1997, four years before the destruction of the Twin Towers.  Other recognizable skyscrapers are the Chrysler Building and the Citigroup center.
 
New York city being engulfed by enormous waves.
The scene above might be unsettling for New York residents. We see the Brooklyn bridge crumbling with cars and buses falling into agitated waters. At the right is the Statue of Liberty, which seems to be sinking in the water. Beneath this horrifying prophecy is the New York Stock Exchange, with people trading goods around it.
So, what is the purpose of this weird carving? Well, the first thing that needs to be mentioned is the actual St. John the Divine is credited for writing the Book of Revelation in the Bible, which describes in symbolic imagery the events of the apocalypse. Occultists believe that the Book of Revelation has been hermetically coded to reveal its true meaning to the initiates of esoteric teachings. This scene, carved on the west entrance of the cathedral, depicts New York as being ”Babylon the Great”, the city who gets completely destroyed by the wrath of God. The Book of Revelation mentions:

“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
and a haunt for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
 
-Book of Revelation 18

The artists might be on to something because there is indeed numerous similarities between the actual New York city and the description of Babylon the Great in the Bible.  The Book of Revelation mentions:


  1. A “Great Prostitute” who sits on many waters – peoples, multitudes, nations and languages – holding a golden cup. She rules over the kings of the Earth. = The Statue of Liberty
  2. Merchants of the Earth who grew rich of her “excessive luxuries”, weeping because nobody buys their goods anymore = New York Stock Exchange
 
“The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out:
”
‘Woe! Woe, O great city,

dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,

and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!

In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’

- Book of Revelation, 18

Knowing that, still today, over 70% of the world’s capital goes through the NYSE, we understand why the building was depicted on the apocalyptic pillar. It represents the “financial” aspect of the Book of Revelation, where it repeatedly refers to rich merchants and trading goods.

So, a landmark of NYC, the St. John the Divine Cathedral, predicts in vivid detail the destruction of its home city. Pretty unusual. Under the rendering of the NYSE, we a skeleton and strange creatures, who seem to represent death and destruction. Is this some sort of prophecy?

 The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Pillar with the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

 
The man above the Tree of Life is also uncharacteristic for a Cathedral. It is one-eyed (see the Eye of Horus)
and wears a huge clear quartz amulet, which is said to have magical and metaphysical properties.

 A scene depicting a birth from some kind of flower, surrounded by mummies and above a lamb with its legs tied. Who is being born? Is the Anti-Christ who is said by the Book of Revelation to the beast “coming up out of the earth; and had two horns like a lamb“? Underneath is a spiral vortex (symbolizing change of consciousness?) and people apparently praising or worshipping the figure (Anti-Christ?).

Look Familiar?

Pillar symbolizing death with the “wheel within a wheel, full of eyes all around”
 from the vision in the beginning of the book of Ezekiel.

The columns are placed next to the Cathedral’s entrance, under saintly figures.
Little to no documentation exists about the meaning of the pillars and the rest of the Cathedral contains a lot of art with strange symbolism alluding to catastrophe and a new era. Strange place.


Prophetic Pillars on St. John The Divine Cathedral Warns of Coming Disaster & Deception

 



Prophetic Pillars on St. John the Divine Cathedral - Symbology



Strange Rituals
A) Procession of the Ghouls
 
Every year, at Halloween, St. John the Divine is the host of a strange event called “The Grand Procession of the Ghouls”. It is basically a parade taking place right inside the sanctuary of the Cathedral where people dressed in costumes of demons, ghouls, monsters and other creepy things, walk around to macabre organ music. This thing resembles the strange rituals held behind closed doors by occult groups. Outside of the great number of costumes representing demons and Satan (already extremely bizarre for a Cathedral), some costumes seem to make a mockery out of Christianity.

A video shot by a tourist of the event.




The Occult Origins of Halloween
Recognized as a Biblical authority on alternative religions and the occult, previous to his salvation Bill spent sixteen years as a teacher of witchcraft, spiritism and ceremonial magick. To Yah'Shua's glory, the Ruach has continually used Bill's experience as a Druidic high priest, ordained spiritist minister and former satanist to teach Christians the intricacies of spiritual warfare and minister to those lost in cults. He also spent nine years as an active member of the Freemasonic fraternity (both York and Scottish rite) and five years as a devout member of the LDS (Mormon) church, where he held numerous offices, including elders' quorum president. Bill held temple recommends in the LDS church for four years.

Pagan customs became disguised long ago, as messianic belief developed among ancient sun-worshiping peoples. The pagans were absorbed along with their religious mannerisms. A blend of the truth mixed with abominations occurred. Pagan celebrations were 'adopted' to replace the scriptural observances. With eyes wide shut, billions entrust their eternity to men who exploit them.

HALLOWEEN
A Druid Feast Of The Dead  (Samhain)

Everyone knows that the celebration of "Halloween" involves witches, warlocks, jack-o-lanterns, and an odd little phrase, "trick or treat".  They feel it's innocent, and all about pretending as they teach their little ones to dress up and join in the fun.  Is our Creator fond of us doing this, or are we practicing something originating in darkness that is absolutely evil in His eyes? 

The word "Halloween" is a hybridization of the phrase "All Hallow's Eve", or All Hallowed's Eve'n.  "Hallowed" means "Holy", and is a word derived from "halo", a nimbus, hoop, or glowing emanation around the head of a deity such as Krishna (India).  Buddha is often depicted with a hoop or glowing orb around his head, as is "Jupiter" of the Romans, and Cerwiden of the Druids. 

This practice of relating a round glow to the heads of deities or "enlightened ones" was adopted by Catholicism from the Romans, stemming from even more ancient Pagans.  The statue of Jupiter has a halo, and was re-named Peter.  The Catholics adopted the halo from Paganism to indicate that a person was a saint, so their images of dead "saints" could be properly venerated.  The idea of being "haloed" meant the person was "holy", and this idea is conveyed in the term "hallowed". 

Pagan customs, symbols, and rituals related to sun-worship overtook the early development of Christianity.  The halo is directly related to the solar nimbus which the Pagans formerly worshipped. 

They adopted and learned the ways of the heathen (a violation of Duetoronomy 12:28-32). 

The Druids (sun worshippers) of the north held a grim observance for their lord of the dead, Samhain, at the time of the year when the days grew short.  The "dark" half of the year was marked by the arrival of the observance of Samhain.  As the Norse (Celtic, Teutonic) lands became "Christianized", this observance known as Samhain was re-invented, disguised, and camouflaged in new meanings.
