Is Satan Alive and Well on Planet Earth?
by I. Penn
To make correct decisions you must know your adversary, you can’t defeat an enemy you don’t know. By reviewing ancient documents and what was written all those years ago, maybe we can get a picture of who or what is our adversary and what will happen as we approach the “Tribulation”.
The turn of the millennium went without disaster, December 2012 has passed away without any great worldwide calamity, in fact nothing discernible has happened, the end of the Mayan calender has not resulted in the end of the world, but !!!
I wrote the following a few years ago, before internet, information was from books and the media, remember how limiting it was :
“I have a feeling, hunch, that something dramatic is going to happen in our world in the near future, I don’t know what it will be or when it will happen, it could be something good, it could be something bad, but I feel that it will affect the whole world, every person on the planet, every continent and every country, another war, economic collapse, something cosmic or a combination of these. “
On what did I base this?
Many people have written on this subject and many more have their opinions, including on World Mysteries and I acknowledge these but probably the first and in my opinion most beautiful was Enoch, the following is an extract from the first chapter of the Book of Enoch.
“ The words of the blessing of Enoch wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, “
So Enoch was told that a great tribulation was to happen in the far distant future? The End Time???
Another ancient text that deals with this subject, things that will happen in the future is of course Revelations at the very end of the New Testament of the Bible.
There are various characters in this text, the Beast, the Harlot/ Prostitute, under the control of Satan, and the Lamb, who or what could they represent???
Beasts and Prostitutes/Harlots are rather nasty characters but the Lamb the young sheep, isn’t it the most innocent and charming of creatures? Have you ever watched a group of them in a springtime field gamboling, running and jumping about playfully, the most charming and innocent of animals.
The same text includes “ And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought.”
Couple of relevant definitions from the Dictionary:
Prostitute, put (oneself or ones talents) to an unworthy or corrupt purpose for the sake of personal or financial gain. Greed.
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, four allegorical mounted figures , commonly identified as Conquest , War, Famine and Death whose arrival heralds the end of the world.
Let me continue with my unusual interpretation, maybe revealing, of the Four Horses from Revelations, these are the signs to look for,
“ Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this,”
Are we seeing these signs today, in our modern society?
Are we in the final times before the tribulation and who or what is behind this?
The Lamb opened the “scroll” to loose the seven seals, the Four Horses of the Apocalypse are the first four of the seven seals to be opened during the lead in to the Apocalypse.
Revelations 6.2, Scroll 1.
And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Could this signify the white Europeans conquering and colonizing the world? the Germans, French, Dutch, Belgians, Italians, Spanish and Portuguese, Britain painted the world map red.
This started with the famous explorers, Columbus, Vasco da Gama, etc —–who discovered those countries far away from Europe but soon afterwards those Europeans started to emigrate, going to live in those far distant lands, to bring back the wealth, develop trade, America, Australia and all the rest. Those Europeans had superior weapons than the local populations and were able to dominate because of their power, the gun. Since the early 19th century peoples of white European origin including the Jews dominated the political, financial, industrial structure of the world.
Throughout the 20th century this power has been reduced, the independence of the colonies, the emergence of Japan, China, India and Europeans knocking the sh– out of each other in the First World War and starting the Second World War which really did become worldwide and cause worldwide disruption.
Could the election of Barak Obama signify the end of white mans domination of the world?
WHITE MEN WENT OUT FROM EUROPE TO CONQUER THE WORLD.
When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”
Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a mighty sword.
Communism, signified by the color RED, much has been written about the origins of communism, I have read that the name comes from the Paris communes during the French Revolution. Documented by Carl Marx and put into practice in Russia after the fall of the Tsar regime. It developed under Lenin and Stalin during his reign of power and terror.
After the Second World War communism split the worlds major land mass in two, Russia was communist, China became communist after the great march lead by Mao tse-tung.
Put your finger on a world map or better a globe run it down the line that split Germany in two, across middle Europe, down the Adriatic Sea, through the Black Sea, north of Turkey across the Caspian Sea through Afghanistan, north of India, down through Vietnam, split Korea in two and go up between China and Japan basically you have a frontier between Communism and Non Communism with only a few small exceptions such as Cuba. The majority of the battles or wars over the last sixty years have been fought along this line, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan etc.
The two main powers of communism were of course USSR and China the two regimes under Stalin and Mao Tse-tung caused more deaths in their own countries than any other regimes in the history of mankind, nobody knows how many people died, many put the figures at much more than those caused by Hitler. The “mighty sword”, could of course be the power of these countries with atomic weapons.
UNDER THE RED FLAG MANY PEOPLE WERE KILLED BY THESE REGIMES.
(For the readers information I was in China, Shanghai for five weeks during the spring of 1967, the height of the Cultural Revolution. I was a young man then in my early 20’s)
6.5, When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say. “Come and see.” So I looked and behold a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6.6, And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
It was this horse, THE BLACK HORSE, that gave me these ideas, I was pondering over a possible meaning of this text for a long time, what came during communism? What possible meaning could this text have? my thoughts went to many areas, they always came back to “POVERTY IN BLACK AFRICA “
With the advent of television in our homes during the 1950s, we have seen images of people starving to death, children with bloated stomachs because of lack of food and water, this lack of sustenance was caused by battles or wars or climate change, not enough rain to grow crops or feed the animals.
IN BLACK AFRICA SCARCITY OF FOOD
When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.”
So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them to them over a forth of the earth. To kill with the sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
I thought and thought about this, many times, my mind went down many paths, what was the significance of “Death and Hades’ ??? what was the significance PALE horse, a pale colour is not bright, not prominent almost HIDDEN, my mind kept going to the conclusion that it could signify the two types of terrorism we have in the world today, Islamic terrorism, and the terrorism of the western governments, banks and other institutions.
For the sake of clarity I will separate the two and define :
Military Terrorism, the idea that small, hidden groups of people, could, using modern weaponry, cause massive destruction of property and death, indiscriminately, to many, in most opinions, innocent peoples.
What is the difference between Revolution and Terrorism? Terrorism is hidden, the people carrying it out are hidden /secret.
Terrorism has a long history throughout the development of our civilization and was developed in Europe in the 1970s by Bader Meinhof, the Red Brigade as an anti imperialism organization to bring down capitalism. The ideas quickly went to nationalist organizations such as ETA, the IRA
Islamic Terrorism is the most prominent form of Military Terrorism in the world today, with its goal International Jihad.
The following is from an Islamic Hadith:
“The time is near in which nothing will remain of Islam but its name, and of the Qur’an but its mere appearance, and the mosques of Muslims will be destitute of knowledge and worship; and the learned men will be the worst people under the heavens; and contention and strife will issue from them, and it will return upon themselves. “ (Hadith) (Hadiths are a collection of sayings of the prophet Muhammad that are not included in the Quran.) WS pg 778
Some of the “Learned men” of Islam seem to meet this description, almost every day we hear of some attack in some place in the world that is attributed to Islamic Terrorism.
International Jihad, a long way from Greater Jihad, which is the spiritual struggle within oneself against sin, put in my words “The Purification of the Soul”
Government and Institution Terrorism.
What is the terrorism of the western institutions? A popular subject today.
The governments, national, (federal) and local, the banks and other financial institutions, the oil companies, the drug companies, the militaries, etc all seem to be working together to control our society, more bureaucracy, taking away more and more of our freedoms everyday.
Greed seems to be the main driving force behind their operations, just look at the banks, almost every transaction you make, the bank earns money and only last week I read in a newspaper “Rich Rewards for Executives, Investment Chief reaps $26 million amid legal woes and flagging profit.”. In Italy they tell me there is a law that makes it illegal to not have a bank account, what is behind this? Is it some kind of conspiracy? No need to say more at this stage, many of us have opinions about this.
Last year I was driving through Georgia US, I had some spare time on my hands, I decided to visit the Georgia Guidestones in Elbert County Georgia US, with the help of the friendly lady in my GPS, I found it, a few other people there, I hadn’t realized that it was June 20st summer solstice and the significance of this, as I talked with the other people I learnt of the sunlight passing through the small hole in the granite onto the ground making a solar clock, we tried to trace the light and watch it move, we talked about the other astronomical features of this monument.
As I was looking at the ten guidelines a few of us were discussing what could be the meaning of these guidelines, there was a guy from Texas homing in on guideline # 4, “Rule passion- faith-tradition and all things with tempered reason” his point was that whoever built this monument, nobody knows who R.C.Christian was, wants to rule humanity, this guy didn’t want to be ruled by whoever this was. I didn’t pick up on him properly then, but now only a few months later I think I see his point, that there is a group of people ???? in the world today that RULE us and want more RULE over us, I take this question a lot further, is this something to do with SATAN whose guidestone is bondage and slavery?
Interesting, Georgia Guidestones, no mention of God or Jesus, unusual in this part of US.
As I am looking, searching questioning, we are in the Chinese year of the SNAKE, it takes me back to a small study I did a few years ago, I was looking at the references to the DEVIL and the various names he has, what he did and what where the consequences of what he did?
When looking for references don’t forget Rev, 12.9
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil or Satan who deceives the whole world.”
Sooo, the Dragon the Serpent the Devil and Satan are all the same divinity. Does this include Lucifer, Siva, Iblis, and all the other names most of which are associated with serpents, snakes, reptiles or dragons?
The Ancient Egyptians had an interesting take on this, “Just as a dead person faced many challenges in the Duat, Ra faced attack in the underworld from the evil serpent Apep.
Apep was an evil young god in ancient Egyptian religion, the deification of darkness and chaos and thus opponent of light and Ma’at (order/truth)
Ra was the solar Deity, bringer of light and thus upholder of Ma’at, Apep was viewed as the greatest enemy of Ra.
As the personification of all that was evil, Apep was seen as a giant snake/serpent, or occasionally as a dragon, he had various names, Enemy of Ra, Serpent from the Nile and Evil Lizard.
Apep or Apophis was an evil god in ancient Egyptian religion, the deification of darkness and chaos, and thus opponent of light and Ma’at (order/truth), whose existence was believed from the 8th Dynasty (mentioned at Moalla) onwards. Strangely, Aphophis is the name of an asteroid which is predicted to nearly hit our planet in 2029…
THE LORD GOD.
The ALL, the Creator, the Father the Holy Spirit,“him who is and who was and who is to come.” – he that has no name.
OTHER GODS, The Seven Lords.
Most ancient cultures have various gods, the monolithic religions do not address these other gods. Except maybe “ You shall have no other Gods before Me”
Interesting here is that in our modern languages the names of the days of the week in latin languages are taken from the names of the Roman gods and in English from the names of the Scandinavian or Northern European Gods. I use the French and English names but it is true for other languages such as Italian or Flemish.
French, Dimanche, from the latin word for god, deus, lundi, from lune meaning moon, mardi from the roman god Mars, mecredi, from the roman god Mercury, jeudi, from the roman god Jupiter, vendredi, from the roman goddess Venus, and samedi from the roman god Saturn.
In, English, Sunday, from the sun god, Monday, from the moon, Tuesday from the god tiw, Tyr or Tiwasz, Wednesday from Woden or Odin, Thursday from the god Thor, Friday from the goddess Frigga or Freya. (Try using the word frigga with an Italian, they look shocked, thats a very rude word in our language, they say, something to do with the “V” of Venus.)
If you look up the names of the Northern European gods, they are the same characters as the Roman Gods.
What do the texts tell us about angels?
The Book of Enoch introduces us to the idea that there was a few thousand angels and that they are the Watchers rather like a “Project Team” in the Creation.
Also in Job, 1:6,
“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan was also among them”
Job, 38: 6/7,
“OR who laid it’s cornerstone, When the morning stars sang together, and the sons of God shouted for joy?”
Could this be recording some sort of cosmic impact that resulted in some great achievement in the Creation that the angels witnessed?
The shouting for joy of the team is just like the reaction of the team during the landings on the Moon in July 1969 and the return of the cosmonauts to earth, we all saw this on our TV screens.
Angels are described as somewhere between God and us, divinities yes, but not as God, they are spiritual, and can be physical.
Enoch gives us the names of the angels Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Phanuel and many others.
Genesis, 1:6, introduces us to the story of the sons of God taking the daughters of man as wives and the offspring being giants or mighty men, this was a great sin and God produced the flood to destroy the result.
The Book of Enoch, greatly expands on this story, there are two hundred angels who took wives, he gives the names of their leader and other leaders and the offspring are described as monsters, just like the Cyclops the one eyed monster and other monsters of Greek Mythology.
The text says that these angels taught men many arts, metal working, growing roots, (crops), writing, warfare, in fact most of what we prescribe to civilization today (see PS at the end of this article).
The Lord God condemns these angels and does not forgive them, they were not allowed to return to heaven, they had their right to eternal life taken from them.
Their leader Semyaza, was buried under a rock in the desert in a place called Dadael. Gadreel was the one who lead Eve astray. (A common place for snakes to live is under rocks in the desert.)
What else do the texts say about angels?
We have the description when John met the Angel, Revelations 1-14,
“ His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow and his eyes like a flame of fire.”
Also in Enoch we have Noah.
“Methuselah chose a wife for his son Lemech and Noah was bourn.”
106.2 “And his body was white like snow and red like the flower of a rose, and the hair on his head was white like wool.”
106 5, And he said to him “ I have begotten a strange son; he is not like a man but like the children of the Angels of Heaven, of different type.”
And his eyes are like the rays of the sun.
Is this describing an albino condition?
Lemech went into panic when he saw his son.
Do any readers have any more instances of descriptions in ancients texts that could be describing divinities as albino?
Albinos have a aversion to light, they have to keep out of strong sunlight, hidden?
In certain parts of Africa specifically Tanzania and Burundi, there is a rather nasty, evil practice, young albinos are being murdered and witchdoctors are using the body parts to make magic potions, not a very nice practice. I can’t find the motive behind this, do they think it will help them to be like angels?
Where does Satan fit into all this?
There are many references to Satan in the texts, just a few for the sake of this article:
We first meet Satan/Serpent in Genesis where he tempts Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, Adam & Eve can understand the difference between good and evil, the Serpent is condemned.
Another reference to Satan is in Job, For me this is one of the most interesting texts in the Bible
Job, 1:7 And the Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” so Satan answered the Lord and said “From going to and fro on the earth, and walking back and forth on it.”
He was visiting places all over planet earth.
Have you noticed that stories and depictions of dragons are prominent in the extremes of the Europe/ Asia land mass, China and the far west of Europe, in Wales UK, for example there is a dragon on the national flag, there are stories such as St George and the Dragon etc, no need to go into detail about Chinese of Korean dragons but have you noticed that there are fewer stories of dragons in the central part of this land mass… and other American cultures of Feathered Serpent Gods, Quetzalcoati, Kukulcan, Viracocha, Vutan, Ioskeha and many others ????? Look at the facial features jaw lines etc Have you also noticed that the features of dragons in Chinese art often resembles the those depicted by the Aztecs
I suspect there is much more to the Serpent Mound in Ohio US than the experts say 1000-1500 AD Indian construction ???? come on you alignment and numbers guys any lead on this? Study the arial view, just like Nazca, could only have been laid out from the air.
The Hopi people performed a annual Snake Dance to celebrate the union of Snake Youth (a sky spirit) and Snake Girl (an underworld spirit) to renew the fertility of nature.
Next we have the temptation of Jesus, where Satan tries to tempt Jesus to join him.
Matthew 4:8-11, King James Version (KJV):
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
Finally in Revelations Satan is the dragon, serpent, devil etc he is now the big enemy of God, the big battle results in his defeat.
Where is this all leading me? What conclusions do I have and what questions are still open in my mind.
The following appears in the writings of Thoth:
“In the form of man they amongst us, but only to sight were they as men.
Serpent-headed when the glamour was lifted but appearing to man as men among men.
Crept they into the councils, taking the forms that were like unto men.
Slaying by their arts the chiefs of the kingdoms, taking their form and ruling o’er man.
Only by magic could they be discovered.
Only by sound could their faces be seen.
Sought they from the Kingdom of shadows to destroy man and rule in his place. “
Whoever wrote these words and there are many theories about the age and authorship, had tremendous knowledge, my inclination is to regard them as very ancient.
Note: When I reference “ ancient documents” in this text I mean books such as The Book of Enoch, The Emerald Tablets, The Divine Pymander, some of the texts from the Nag Hammadi Library, The Olivet Discourse, The Zend Avesta and others, in fact, any book from ancient times that extolls GOODNESS, condemns EVIL and promises Eternal Life as a reward for goodness is on my reading list.
Did Plato have access to these some of documents? and were they ancient at his time, why did he not reference the source of his knowledge? was it hidden? Was it because his society was ruled by the fallen angels?
Know ye O man, that far in the future, invaders shall come from out of the deep ( The Dweller Of Unal)
IS SATAN ALIVE AND WELL ON PLANET EARTH?
IS THE PALE HORSE DEPICTING THE END TIME? AND WHAT ROLE DOES SATAN HAVE IN THIS?
If you have read and understood the above text it does not take much to come to the following possible conclusions:
- There are two hundred fallen angels who because of their sin of taking human wives and upsetting the genetic code of humans, were not allowed to return to heaven, so are spiritually and maybe physically still somewhere on planet earth.
- These angels are hidden and have supernatural abilities.
- They are spiritual and can appear as men but their natural physical form is as a serpent, snake or reptile.
- Among them is Satan, who is probably a young or minor God, probably now their leader.
- The Lord God has condemned them to a spiritual death along with all other sinners when he returns to to establish his PARADISE, the New Jerusalem here on Earth.
- Satan and his angelic followers are desperate, they are doing everything they can to establish their power.
- They are preparing the peoples of the world for the great battles between the Beast, the Harlot, (Islamic Terrorists and Western Institutions) and the Lambthat will reduce world population to 5000,000,000. that could be controlled.
- They are preparing themselves for the cosmic battle with the Lord God.
- Satan will try to overthrow his FATHER, take over his power on planet earth.
- If you follow and understand my logic it gives a possible explanation for EVERY ONE, ALL, of the unexplainable or badly explained mysteries on our planet.
As I am preparing this text we are in April 2013, International Jihad flexed it’s muscle this week, The Boston Marathon Bombing, the two young guys of Chechnyan / Islamic origin introducing their brand of terrorism to US soil, who or what is behind their deeds or who or what is behind their reason, who or what is behind their radicalization?
Their father recently went back to Russia, he is reported to have described the younger of his sons as an angel, perhaps he was right but not the type of angel we normally think of.
Why, Why people are asking, there seems no reason, I heard one person say.

PS Great Teachers of Humanity
Was the “Great Design” work of Nature or God(s)?… At this time we cannot be certain. However, one thing is clear: either by their own intelligent inquiry into nature or by teachings received from god(s), ancient architects and builders encoded the knowledge about the Grand Design in their “projects (pyramids and temples). It is amazing, that all major religions mention their gods as “teachers of mankind”… Here are few examples:
Ea (Enki), the god of ancient Sumeria
In remote times, according to this myth, when men lived in a lawless manner like beasts, Ea appeared from the sea. Part man and part fish, the double-headed god instructed men in handicrafts, farming, letters, laws, architecture, and magic. He softened the primitive rudeness and since that time nothing has been added to improve on his teaching. After a day of instruction Ea retired into the sea, whence the divine fish man made only three other appearances over a period of thousands of years.
E.A., the standing serpent wave, offers the secret of the stars to a priest.
JAHVEH, the LORD of Israel
And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See , the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. And he hath put in his heart that he may teach , both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman , and of the embroiderer , in blue, and in purple, in scarlet , and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work. — Exodus 30-35 (Bible, KJV)
Quetzalcoatl, the god of Mesoamerica
In his wrote: “In the city of Tollan reigned many years a king called Quetzalcoatl…. He was exceptional in moral virtues … the place of this king among these natives is like King Arthur among the English.’ The temple pyramid dedicated to Quetzalcoatl in this advanced city had been built by the Toltecs, whose ninth emperor priest he was. Three centuries after the collapse of Toltec power the rulers of Aztecs were pleased to call themselves ‘successors of Quetzalcoatl’. He was regarded as the greatest historical king: he started the cultivation of maize; he introduced weaving, the polishing of stone, and the making of feather mantles; he taught men how to measure time and study the movements of the stars; he invented the calendar along with its fixed ceremonies and days of prayer; he expounded religious doctrines. – Bernardino de Sahagun “History of Things of New Spain” (written in the sixteenth century)
Quetzalcoatl, the Mayan “lord of life”and King of Tula being `consumed’ by a `serpent’.
Viracocha is the great creator god in the pre-Inca and Inca mythology in the Andes region of South America. According to the myth recorded by Juan de Betanzos, Viracocha rose from Lake Titicaca (or sometimes the cave of Pacaritambo) during the time of darkness to bring forth light. He made the sun, moon, and the stars. He made mankind by breathing into stones, but his first creation were brainless giants that displeased him. So he destroyed it with a flood and made a new, better one from smaller stones. Viracocha eventually disappeared across the Pacific Ocean (by walking on the water), and never returned. He wandered the earth disguised as a beggar, teaching his new creations the basics of civilization, as well as working numerous miracles. He wept when he saw the plight of the creatures he had created. It was thought that Viracocha would re-appear in times of trouble. Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa noted that Viracocha was described as “a man of medium height, white and dressed in a white robe like an alb secured round the waist, and that he carried a staff and a book in his hands.”

According to some researchers (e.g. Zecharia Sitchin), our ancestors knew their gods. They were not gods in any religious sense, and there was no religion as such. The gods were not a matter of belief: the people lived side by side with them in cities built by human laborers under the direction of Anunnaki architects and engineers.
