I tuned into the closing ceremony during the performance of “What Makes You Beautiful” on a black and white patterned floor and settled into what I expected to be a super symbolic ride through loony land. Aside from the symbols, the closing ceremony was an unremarkable lip syncing celebration of pop-culture that carried over from the opening ceremony. British Celebrities popped up, dead and alive, one after the other to entertain the masses, making them feel safe and free and make them forget about the mega security initiative undertaken for the games and how much of that big brother equipment will remain intact once everyone packs up and goes home.
After a few performances, the circus-like show continues with the athletes coming into the stadium as ONE instead of as separate countries, as they usually do. This focus on bringing the world together peacefully is a traditional Olympic theme, but it is still hard to ignore the militarized zone surrounding this peaceful gathering. The aim is to normalize a police state presence by mixing it with feel good entertainment. For example, a militarized formation carried in the larger than life billboards of the British supermodels. But is there really any room for freedom in a heavily surveillanced society?
Next a bunch of robotic dancers dressed in military camouflage build a white (illuminated) pyramid. Here the masonic theme is continued. The pyramid represents the hierarchical structure of the Occult religion. The elite on the top, the masses at the bottom and the patrolling police and military in between. Participating countries’ flags are strategically placed behind the pyramid, suggesting this religion has global reach.
What could be called a tribute to John Lennon was also a chance to play the New World Order’s theme song, Imagine. It seems the lyrics go against what the games celebrate – national pride and healthy competition. Instead, the late John Lennon wants us to imagine a world with no countries, where nation states lose their sovereignty and submit to a world government. A world with no possessions, no Heaven no Hell and no God. Sounds a lot like a communist, socialist, military dictatorship. Another appearance that I thought was quite fitting was by the Illuminati puppet Jessie J. She performed her hit song, Pricetag, which shot her to stardom and which appears on the surface to be about artists creating music for music’s sake and not for the money. But the real message is that it’s all about indoctrination, about shaping the youth’s attitudes and values through influential pop culture.
The most obvious and oldest occult symbol in the ceremony was the Phoenix rising from the flames.
“The Phoenix … is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt … This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who they think will one day rise triumphant.” [Bill Schnoebelen, quoted by Dr. C. Burns, "Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 123]
In Beijing we had the fertilization of an egg, last month we took a stroll through the Garden of Eden and Babylon, and then we saw that egg turn into a giant baby head. Earlier tonight, as a giant octopus stretched its tentacles throughout the world from London, reaching a billion people, Lucifer rose from the place where you often find him hiding in plain sight – Popular Culture.
Although the game’s celebrations may seem ominous with their sinister symbols and satanic references, we know that even if they are heralding the birth of the Antichrist, the emergence of the New World Order or the rise of Lucifer himself, God is always in control and Satan’s time is short. Their symbols have no power over us.
