Revivals Pt 10: The Pagan “Virus”

With all the talk of a “New Variant,” I can’t help but see the spiritual principles behind this “Coronation” of evil taking over the world.

I’ve been reading a book I found online by Scottish historian of religion and Presbyterian minister James Aitken Wylie (1808 – 1890) called The History of Protestantism (1878). Wylie published several books exposing the Papacy, but he is most well known for this lengthy work.

I haven’t read the entire volume, but the first two chapters (specifically chapter 2) show that, amidst the great “Revivals” that brought Papal teachings into Protestantism, there were men who saw them for the Mystery School teachings that they were. If you have the time, I’d encourage you to read the entire chapter (link at the end of the following excerpt). From chapter two:

“From the fourth century the corruptions of the Christian Church continued to make marked and rapid progress. The Bible began to be hidden from the people. And in proportion as the light, which is the surest guarantee of liberty, was withdrawn, the clergy usurped authority over the members of the Church… The ministers of Christ began to affect titles of dignity, and to extend their authority and jurisdiction to temporal matters… While the, “living oracles” were neglected, the zeal of the clergy began to spend itself upon rites and ceremonies borrowed from the pagans. These were multiplied to such a degree, that Augustine complained that they were “less tolerable than the yoke of the Jews under the law.” At this period the Bishops of Rome wore costly attire, gave sumptuous banquets, and when they went abroad were carried in litters…

So far, and through these various stages, had the declension of the Church proceeded…. She had received a new impregnation from an alien principle, the same, in fact, from which had sprung the great systems that covered the earth before Christianity arose.

Looking back at this stage to the change which had come over the Church, we cannot fail to see that its deepest originating cause must be sought, in the inability of the world to receive the Gospel in all its greatness. It was a boon too mighty and too free to be easily understood or credited by man… It was not even a rule of life but “grace,” the “grace of God,” and therefore sovereign, and boundless.

To man fallen and undone the Gospel offered a full forgiveness, and a complete spiritual renovation, issuing at length in the inconceivable and infinite felicity of the Life Eternal. But man’s narrow heart could not enlarge itself to God’s vast beneficence. A good so immense, so complete in its nature, and so boundless in its extent, he could not believe that God would bestow without money and without price; there must be conditions or qualifications.

So he reasoned.

And hence it is that the moment inspired men cease to address us, and that their disciples and scholars take their place – men of apostolic spirit and doctrine, no doubt, but without the direct knowledge of their predecessors – we become sensible of a change; an eclipse has passed upon the exceeding glory of the Gospel.

As we pass from Paul to Clement, and from Clement to the Fathers that succeeded him, we find the Gospel becoming less of grace and more of merit… Seen through the fogs of the Patristic age, the Gospel scarcely looks the same which had burst upon the world without a cloud but a few centuries before.

This disposition – that of making God less free in His gift, and man less dependent in the reception of it: the desire to introduce the element of merit on the side of man, and the element of condition on the side of God – operated at last in opening the door for the pagan principle to creep back into the Church. A change of a deadly and subtle kind passed upon the worship… [W]orship, we say, from being the expression of the soul’s emotions, was changed into a rite, a rite akin to those of the Jewish temples, and still more akin to those of the Greek mythology, a rite in which lay couched a certain amount of human merit and inherent efficacy, that partly created, partly applied the blessings with which it stood connected.

This was the moment when the pagan virus inoculated the Christian institution.The History of Protestantism (formatted for emphasis)


Images from Jesus of Nazareth – 1977 TV mini-series with Robert Powell

Through His divine birth, sinless life and earthly ministry, His being beaten and crucified, His bodily resurrection after 3 days, His physical appearance on earth for 40 days to an estimated 500 witnesses and His ascension into heaven in full view of His followers, Jesus Christ and His Gospel of grace destroyed the Mystery Schools and their religions. (Matt 1:23, Lk 1:27; 1 Pet 2:2; Isa 52:14; Matt 27:32-56, Mk 15:21-38, Lk 23:26-49, Jn 19:16-37; Lk 24:7; Acts 1:1-9)

But within 300 years, the profound new spiritual life and kingdom He brought by grace was subverted and rebranded by the same paganism. This was spelled out by Freemason Manly P. Hall in his book The Secret Destiny of America.

The rise of the Christian Church broke up the intellectual pattern of the classical pagan world. By persecution of this pattern’s ideologies it drove the secret societies into greater secrecy; the pagan intellectuals then 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 by their vows.” – Manly P. Hall – The Secret Destiny of America, (audio on Youtube)

What exactly are the Mystery Schools again?

The Mystery Schools are the philosophical, intellectual schools that are based on the teachings of the god of this world. The same have been used throughout the ages to control society. The pagan gods Ra, Horus, Osiris, Thoth, Hermes Tresmegistus and others, the teachings of Alchemy, and Babylon’s Kabbalah and Gnosticism are all Mystery School teachings.

Ya, I know.

And that is by design.

The way we were taught in school, it looks like there are just a bunch of different teachings by different primitive pagan cultures with similar concepts that came from somewhere or another… Maybe from aliens?

Don’t believe it. They are all ONE teaching (through a variety of stories) with the same entities going by different names. Satan’s religions to rule the world are all based on his original lie in the garden; ascension.

“ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Gen 3:5)

The Mystery School teachings have always had ONE goal, and that’s world dominance with Lucifer (by any name) reigning as god.

Since Hall refers to the Mystery Schools of Egypt as the epitome of occult (hidden) wisdom and knowledge for over 3,000 years, let’s start there.

According to the Egyptian creation legend, darkness hung over the Primeval Ocean until an entity called Atum caused an island to emerge from the water to support his divinity. (A clear twisting of Gen 1:1-31), This divinity manifested itself as Ra, the sun god of Egypt.

Ra was (and still is by some) held to be the ruler of the heavens – the god of the sun, the bringer of light, and patron to the pharaohs. Ra is a celestial god who rules from his position in the sky. In Egypt, the pharaohs were considered to be incarnations of Ra, which gave them the power of god on earth.

“By the time of around the fourth dynasty, the pharaohs themselves were seen as incarnations of Ra, thus giving them absolute power.” (rule by divine mandate) Source & Source

Now watch this:

 “The Pope, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ… enjoys, by divine institution, supreme, full, immediate, and universal power in the care of souls.” – Wikipedia

The word “vicar” comes from the Latin word vicarius, which means “in place of.”  So, to call the pope the “Vicar of Christ” implies that he has the same power and authority that Christ had over the church. 

No, not a coincidence. Again, Hall said: 

“…[T]he pagan intellectuals then reclothed their original ideas in a garment of Christian phraseology…” M. Hall, Secret Destiny of America

I keep going back to the Mystery Schools in this series because the Mystery Schools so plainly spell out their beliefs, intentions and methods, and all of them are clearly seen in the teachings of the RCC and the doctrines brought by the Protestant Revivals.

Wylie got this. And we need to get it. Because the Mystery School teachings are no less than the enemy’s plan to remove faith from the earth and ultimately dethrone God and reign in His place.

In his second letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul wrote,

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. (2 Cor 2:11)

Paul was talking about forgiving a brother caught in a sin, but his words remind us not to be unaware of all the enemy’s schemes, one of has been to hide Mystery School teachings and methods from organized Christianity so that they could be snuck into the church unawares.

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jude 1:4)

OK, moving on.

In The Secret Destiny of America, Hall details “the Great Work,” of which the “virus” infecting Christianity is an integral part:

“All of the great leaders of ancient times realized and taught that the establishment of a state of permanent peace among the nations depended upon the release of human ideals, but through properly trained and disciplined minds capable of interpreting these ideals in terms of the common good.

World democracy was the secret dream of the great classical philosophers. Toward the accomplishment of this greatest of all human ends they outlined programs of education, religion, and social conduct directed to the ultimate achievement of a practical and universal brotherhood. And in order to accomplish their purposes more effectively, these ancient scholars bound themselves with certain mystic ties into a broad confraternity. In Egypt, Greece, India, and China, the State Mysteries came into existence. Orders of initiated priest philosophers were formed as a sovereign body to instruct, advise, and direct the rulers of the States. [Helena Blavatsky who described Theosophy as “the synthesis of science, religion and philosophy” reviving an “Ancient Wisdom” underlaying all the world’s religions, spent a great deal of time in India]. 

Thousands of years ago, in Egypt, these mystical orders were aware of the existence of the western hemisphere and the great continent which we call America. The bold resolution was made that this western continent should become the site of the philosophic empire…

One of the most ancient of man’s constructive ideals is the dream of a universal democracy and a cooperation of all nations in a commonwealth of States. The mechanism for the accomplishment of this ideal was set in motion in the ancient temples of Greece, Egypt, and India. So brilliant was the plan and so well was it administrated that it has survived to our time, and it will continue to function until the great work is accomplished.” – M. P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America

An incredible amount of groundwork had to be laid to prepare society for this idyllic order, including getting Christians on board by infiltrating Christianity with Mystery School teachings.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Cor 11:3)

It should be sobering to Christians anticipating a coming earthly utopia that what they’ve been taught did not originate in New Testament scripture!

Fast-forward to the present for a moment and look at Plato’s given reason for the destruction of Atlantis, cited by Hall in the quote below. Consider it in light of how they’re currently exposing elite technology behind all the fires, earthquakes and extreme weather.

“A description of the lost Atlantis was written by Plato; it introduces the league formed by the ten benevolent kings who ruled over the lesser nations and the three great continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa; and who bound themselves by oath to obey the divine laws of enduring empire…. This was the philosophic democracy, with all men having the right to become wise through self-discipline and self-improvement, thus achieving the only aristocracy recognized by Natural Law… The Atlantis story continues to the later decision of the kings to use their united power to enslave all the peoples of the earth, and the consequent destruction of Atlantis by earthquake and fire… interpreted politically, it is the story of the breaking up of the ideal pattern of government.” – M. P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America

Prophecy, or scripture turned to script?

Just for starters, we know from the biblical account in Gen. chapters 6-9 that the old world was not destroyed by earthquakes and fire, but by a great flood, and not because of the tyrannical abuse of democratic leaders (as we see being played out by the US as a world power today). Rather,

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Gen 6:5)

Plato’s Atlantis and Futurism

Plato’s Atlantis (apx 350-400 B.C.) is not based in history or physicality, but is an occult narrative built on legend and pagan belief. The biblical city of Henoch, built by Cain before the Flood (Gen 4:17), may have been a similar technologically advanced civilization. Plato’s account of its destruction may reflect the ancient Egyptian records of a volcanic eruption on the island of Thera and the series of earthquakes and tsunamis that followed, shattering the civilization around 1500 BCE. It may also have been influenced by Herodotus’ description of the city of Babylon. But consider the numerous biblical accounts of God destroying the world at the end of time that are in the Old Testament, before Plato’s time. These include Ps 18:7-15, Joel 2:1-32, Dan 12:4, Mal 4:1, Isa 51:6, Mal 3:2, Amos 9:5, Zeph 3:8 & Joel 2:30. The book of Revelation 6:12-17 also speaks of such a time (apx A.D. 90).

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand? (Rev 6:12-17)

Keep in mind that everything the devil does is a counterfeit and inversion of God’s creative work and principles.

In my video Counterfeit Kingdom, I show the incredible amount of work that’s been put into twisting scripture to cause Christians to perceive current events through the lens of occultists (flood of deception – Rev 12:15 – counterfeit of the great flood of Noah?) Believing they’re following God’s Word, they are actually being led to embrace the Mystery School teachings that enthrone a false Christ.

Plato’s/Hall’s “destruction of Atlantis by earthquake and fire” being the result of the kings “use[ing] their united power to enslave all the peoples of the earth” sounds like Dispensationalism’s “7-year period of tribulation” prior to a 1000 year earthly reign of “Christ” or Judaism’s “Mashiach.”

Personally, what I think that, having been restrained so that the Gospel could go forth, we’re witnessing is the loosing of the dragon to “for a little season” at the end of the age just before Christ’s triumphant return to judge the world (Rev 20:3, 2 Thess 2:6-12).

But speaking of fire…

Colors are very important in occult symbolism. In Hermetic Alchemy the first stage in transformation is “the blackening” which occurs through fire. To create a new order you must first destroy the old. Hall calls this alchemical formula of the Rosicrucians and Freemasons “The Great Work.” The “old” order they want to destroy is the New World Order that God brought about through Christ and his spiritual reign in the hearts of man.

“…[T]he Great Work (“Magnum Opus”) of the Rosicrucians and Spiritual Alchemists is the same as that which is symbolised in our Masonic legend of H.A.” – MasonicWorld

So, OK, what is up with the color BLUE?

“Egyptian Blue“ was used to symbolize fertility, birth, rebirth and life. “Blue Alchemy” ……. Soooo… let’s see… They burnt Lahaina to ashes (Black). The next stage in alchemical transformation is white, but Blue symbolizes Rebirth. Rebirth into what? Satan’s New World Order where everything that is worldly and unnatural? 🤔

Blue t-shirt survives? Person INSIDE blue t-shirt not spared.

Natural blue is the color of the sky and water, although no one really knows why. It’s one of nature’s mysteries. It’s the most prevalent color on earth. And like the sun and the moon, I suspect the cause of the color is extra-empirical, which would make it, like the sun and moon, something satan would want to counterfeit and invert to serve his deception to be worshiped as god. These are just my own musings. But I suspect that all this “blue” that’s suddenly being “dropped” on the internet is to further indoctrinate the world into his Mystery School religion. And I can’t help but wonder; is this technology really new?

Anyway, for what it’s worth, I am not at all convinced that there’s anything about the color blue that protects you from lasers. 🤨

But getting back to Alchemy and the Mystery School teachings being “dropped” into the church. Hall writes that,

“Ever upon the Grade of Black follows the Grade of the Neophytes, the New Birth….” – M. P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America

He explains that occult symbolism;

“[Is meant] to protect [initiates] from the persecution of despotic [tyrannical Christian] theology….” [which is why alchemists] “couched their philosophy in Christian terminology, although the great secrets of the Art were derived largely from Egyptian or Arabian adepts.” – M. P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America

Concepts In Hall’s Secret Destiny

OK, let’s take a look at some of Hall’s concepts that fit into the framework of our study of the Revivals.

World Peace

Hall writes of a coming utopian society in this world. But world peace has never been (nor will it ever be) accomplished through any “ascension” of man and is completely unscriptural, yet this occult concept is being perpetuated in the church through the Social Gospel, Futurism and NAR Dominionism, all of which are awaiting a future, earthly reign of Christ. These beliefs have been greatly furthered through Pentecostalism.


Egyptian Hermetic Principle of mentality – “THE WHOLE is the MIND; The world is mental.” – The Seven Secret Principles Of Ancient Egypt

If you’ll remember, revivalist Jonathan Edwards wanted to bring Enlightenment thought into Protestantism in the early 1800’s. Enlightenment thinking led to the intellectual Empirical/Naturalism, where; Reality = Matter & Spirit = Superstition. The spiritual world, once assumed, was relegated to the realm of superstition.

For decades now that the mind has been believed to be the cause of all thought and being; “we are our brain.” Consciousness is believed to be an illusion attributed to chemical reactions within the brain; when the brain dies, consciousness dies.

That’s completely contrary to scripture which teaches of a hereafter.

And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Lk 23:42-43)

But Naturalism is rapidly being abandoned in our day and the supernatural reintroduced, couched in “scientific” terms like “quantum entanglement.” That topic is outside the framework of this article, but the point is that intellectualism is a religion originating in Mystery School thought. It is not modern. It has existed since the beginning of time.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (Gen 3:5)


OK, we covered a lot of ground. But with that backdrop let’s get back to the steps that have been taken to indoctrinate believers into a false occult narrative.

A Quick Recap of Parts 1-9

The staged “revival” at Asbury, Kentucky that was deceptively sold to the public as “spontaneous” set me on a deep-dive into all of the “revivals” to see just who and what was behind them and what they had doctrinally accomplished in Protestantism.

I know. The nerve of me.

From there we:

  • Looked at the Mystery School teachings, and how they inspired all the great world religions including Talmudic, Kabbalistic Judaism and the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). We considered the demonic spirit at work in the land that would become the United States of America (Amaruca) and we looked at another writing today about the Freemasonic plans for the nation that pre-empted the arrival of the first settlers.
  • Moved on to the first “Great Awakening” (1730s – 1740s) and Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), who, as I just mentioned, was quite open about his desire to bring Enlightenment thinking into Christianity. Edwards’ sermons brought a papal focus on man and his sin (rather than God and His Grace) and an unbiblical / papal focus on Hellfire and brimstone.
  • Both Edwards and George Whitefield (1714-1770), claimed to have had a “second experience” in their Christian faith. We pointed out Roman Catholic piety and sacramentalism in the teachings of both men and were shocked by the occult mysticism in the life of Edwards’ wife, Sarah. We uncovered Whitefield’s occult connections and the hints of pedophilia in his boy’s home.
    • *Fun Fact: Jonathan Edwards took one of the very first vaccinations for smallpox in his day to show his followers that the vax was a good thing and helpful. He DIED shortly afterwards.
  • In the lives of John Wesley (1703-1791) and Count Zinzendorf  (1700-1760)  we not only found more focus on the “second experience, law /  RCC “perfectionism,” and a secret society; The Holy Club, but outright occult sexual deviancy in Zinzendorf’s Moravian group, that was, in fact, a sex cult, but is celebrated by NAR leaders today.
  • With Charles Finney’s (1792-1875) “new measures” we saw the psychological manipulation (Enlightenment Philosophy –  again representing Mystery School thought) of emotions, the altar call, carnal “decisionism,” the focus turned from man’s original sin, which Finney did not believe in, and true spiritual regeneration, to the minister – and man’s “decision” to accept Christ. We also saw the outright indoctrination into Freemasonic Moralism in the name of “Christianity.”
  • Finney furthered John and Charles Wesley’s Perfectionism. (Perfectionism teaches that once a converted sinner is sanctified, he becomes perfected in motive and will. . . but not in fact.)

All these men perpetuated the notion that after someone had put their faith in the person of Jesus Christ for their salvation, after they had been supernaturally born-in-spirit (Jn 3:3-5, 1 Pet 1:3, 1:23), that they could once again lose that salvation (become unregenerated and die again in spirit, where their very life was now found) if they failed, in their human effort, to live a “holy” enough life. All promoted the Carnal / Mystery School / Freemasonic / Papal teaching of man bettering himself through his own efforts.

We’ve blindly lapped up that and other occult teachings because they came straight from the pulpit, including:

  • A “Second Experience” – Counterfeit of scripturally being “born again” and filled with the Holy Spirit, something which scripturally occurs simultaneously. (Jn 3:1-21, Jn 15:26, Acts 2) Hall writes,

“Wise men, the ancients believed, were a separate race, and to be born into this race it was necessary to develop the mind to a state of enlightened intelligence. The old philosophers taught that physical birth is an accident, for men are born into various races and nationalities according to the laws of generation; but there is a second birth, which is not an accident; it is the consequence of a proper intent. By this second birth man is born by enlightened intelligence out of nation and out of race into an international nation and an international race. It is this larger and coming race that will some day inherit the earth. But unless a man be born again by enlightenment, he shall not be a part of the philosophic empire.” – M. Hall – Secret Destiny of America

  • Enlightened University Learning / Naturalistic Science – Hall’s book speaks repeatedly of the importance of University learning and the blend of Religion, Science and Enlightened University learning. Please refer to part two if you haven’t read it yet. This is why it is crucial for us to spot these occult principles in the new doctrines presented to us by theologians and the revivalists.
  • Law and the Mystery School Teaching of Man-looking-inward through; Pietism, Sacramentalism, Legalism and Perfectionism.

Hall’s Secret Destiny of America tells us that the plans for this country were in place long before its government was ever set up. Those plans included freedom of religion, a luxury not offered by the RCC in Europe. So, we see that Rome was not only forced (albeit with great resistance) to finally allow the Reformation to go forth because of the increased knowledge of scripture availed by Gutenberg and his press, but Protestantism and its move to America was also planned / anticipated. Protestantism was violently resisted, then infiltrated and splintered.

The revivals created further splintering in Protestantism and the formation of various new denominations / cults (some outright heretical like Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventism) laying the groundwork for new heresies (which were in reality just revamped old heresies).

That splintering is still oft spoken of in Catholic writings today. But Ecumenical Christianity seems to have lost all memory of why a line between Protestantism and the Papacy even exists. Now, keep in mind that the Papacy is nothing more than the Mystery Schools dressed up in Christian clothes and that they always play both sides.

Egyptian Hermetic Principle of opposites – “Everything is ambiguous; everything has two poles; everything has its opposite; the same and the different are the same; the opposites are the same in nature but different in degree; opposites attract; all truths are half-truths; all paradoxes can be reconciled.” – The Seven Secret Principles Of Ancient Egypt

All of these new teachings ultimately represent a reduced delineation between Protestantism and the RCC from whence it came through the blood of literally tens of millions of martyred believers. All while the RCC Jesuits proudly proclaimed their intent to bring the rebellious Protestants back under the rule of Mother Rome.

That’s enough for now. In the next article we’ll get into how the Third Great Awakening and Pentecostalism furthered the infiltration of Protestantism.

God bless you. Pray for each other. Pray for the lost and the hurting. I’ll leave you with this reading of Second Peter by The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction.
