I saw an angel holding in his hand the key of the bottomless pit




Revelation 20: 1 – 4

1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain. 2 And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years were ended. After that he must be loosed for a little while. 4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom judgment was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.


The Seven Churches of the Revelation. As the Seven Spiritual Centers in the Body by John Van Auken.



An interpretative rendering of the first chapters of the Revelation.

It is based on a belief that the disciple John was not only seeing a message for the whole of humanity, but a message for each individual human.

Each character, place, or action in the Revelation is considered to be an emblem of a part of each soul’s personal spirit, mind, and body.

The “Spirit’s” descriptions, criticisms, instructions, and activities are considered to be insights into the functioning, health, and destiny of each of these aspects of our being.

Under each title is the spiritual center’s number, endocrine gland, and chakra correlate.


The angel opens the bottomless pit, which Cayce says is symbolic of all those things within us that are “the most uncomely,” that are far from the presence of God.

11. (Q) Star from heaven, Key to bottomless pit. What are the locusts as described in this sounding? King Apollyon in this connection?

(A) As has been given as to how each of these vibratory forces arises from the lower portion, or as has been put in another setting – that which represents in the bodily forces the most uncomely, or that from the depths of the bottomless pit, or from out the presence of God, again has the spirit of man arosen to the glory of the star as in the Son (not sun, but Son), to those glories that become as the natures of the bodily forces, and every influence as comes through the earthly natures becomes lost in that beauty in the Son. 281-31

 These influences within us that are incompatible with God’s presence and all- knowing mind arelost in the beauty of the Son.

Explore the humble life and incredible accomplishments of the seer and psychic who achieved worldwide fame for his remarkable gift.

While appearing to sleep, he touched the lives of thousands and saw into the future. His remarkable gift made him the most famous spiritualist since Nostradamus.

Edgar Cayce downplayed his apparently supernatural abilities, saying, “I don’t do anything you can’t do, if you’re willing to pay the price.”

The price must have been high indeed, for he seemingly traveled through space and time with his mind alone.

The life of the man known as “the sleeping psychic.”

See how he predicted both World Wars and the 1929 stock market crash, and diagnosed the illnesses of people sometimes thousands of miles away, all from a trance-like sleep. See how his prescriptions for the afflictions he diagnosed foreshadowed many of the staples of today’s holistic and homeopathic cures.

Spiritualists and cynics examine his gift and career, while contemporary accounts and interviews with those he helped cure testify to his astonishing abilities.

The life of the humble man who, when pressed on the nature of his gift, claimed only that he tried to be “a man of God.”

    A Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28, is a choral piece by Benjamin Britten, scored for three-part treble chorus, solo voices, and harp.

    Written for Christmas, it consists of eleven movements, with text from The English Galaxy of Shorter Poems, by Gerald Bullett; it is in Middle English.

    A number of the texts were subsequently used by other composers, notably Adam lay ybounden by Boris Ord.

    The piece was written in 1942 while Britten was at sea, going from the United States to England.

    It was written at the same time as his Hymn to St. Cecilia and is stylistically very similar.

    Originally conceived as a series of unrelated songs, it was later unified into one piece with the framing processional and recessional.

    2. “Wolcum Yole!”
    3. “There is no Rose”

    ‘Unthinking anger’?

    Posted: November 26, 2010


    In an editorial reflecting the official opinion of the newspaper Nov. 10, the Globe stated that the “conspiracy theory about Obama’s birth certificate” is an expression “of unthinking anger.”


    What is the “conspiracy theory” being put forward by American citizens who want to understand the countless contradictions between Obama’s official narrative of his life and reality?

    Obama tells us he was born in Hawaii, but refuses to release the one document that would positively affirm that claim – the long-form birth certificate, the same document Sen. John McCain released to U.S. Senate investigators to establish his own claims of eligibility to seek the presidency in 2008.

    Obama tells us he lived with his father, Barack Obama Sr., and mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, in Hawaii for the early years of his life. But the facts uncovered by WND’s Jerome Corsi reveal a different story – that Dunham and her son moved to Seattle days after his birth and that Obama Sr. and Dunham never lived together as husband and wife.

    No marriage certificate has ever been produced for Obama Sr. and Dunham, and a letter written by him to a friend in Kenya in 1962, a year after Obama Jr. was born, shows him concerned about the welfare of his wife in Kenya, not Dunham or her son.

    Two years into his term of office, no Hawaiian hospital has yet claimed the birth of the first black president of the United States.

    I believe the American people show a healthy curiosity and skepticism about all this, not a susceptibility to swallowing “conspiracy theories.”

    Does the Globe suggest Americans should simply believe on face value whatever their politicians tell them?

    (And then there’s the whole Obama was adopted by Lolo theory.)

    Case questioning eligibility says facts don’t support Obama story

    Posted: November 26, 2010


    Officials told WND that this case is an opportunity for the Supreme Court to re-establish that its precedents are binding.

    The district judge also remarked “sarcastically” that there may be as many as a “couple of dozen” people concerned about the dispute.

    In fact, polls done by CNN and others indicate almost 6 in 10 in American don’t believe Obama’s birth narrative, which would give those doubting the president a total in the range of 180 million or more.

    “In fact, reliable polls have shown the number of such people to be in the tens of millions and growing,” the pleading explains.

    “The combination of bias and ridicule of a person like the plaintiff wanting his concerns resolved by a court as being, essentially, an ‘unthinkable’ notion, is an expressed denial of a citizen’s right to access to the courts,” the case pleading continues.

    The document also explains that both Robertson and Obama have

    “held management positions on boards of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law, and thus are acquainted with each other.

    There is every appearance of bias here,” it said.

    John Eidsmoe, an expert on the U.S. Constitution now working with the Foundation on Moral Law, has told WND a demand for verification of Obama’s eligibility appears to be legitimate.

    Eidsmoe said it’s clear that Obama has something in the documentation of his history, including his birth certificate, college records and other documents that “he does not want the public to know.”

    The need for this Affidavit arises as a result of the use of V. K. Durham’s continuing claims to the ownership and control of the above named asset by certain financial institutions as an excuse for not seriously considering the use of the DEEDS OF ASSIGNMENT FOR CONSIDERATION offered by GLOBAL ALLIANCE INVESTMENT ASSOCIATION as reserves for banking the same as any other US Treasury debt.

    V. K. Durham has deceived many people, including ourselves, and she has managed to get others to post her bizarre allegations on the internet.

    Most of them can be found by doing a search for Rumor Mill News and checking the “links” from there.

    Herein we will respond to her allegations, accusations, misrepresentations, and lies.

    We have tended to ignore her bleating but when we learn that certain parties and factions are using them to justify delaying the use of our DEEDS, we are obliged to respond.

    Are Glenn Beck’s Most Recent Critics Correct? Beck, Skousen and the Constitution

    November 28, 2010 – by Ron Radosh


    At any rate, Lilla is happy that Beck is “test-driving some fairly isolationist ideas,” and, as he notes, is moving from being a “hawk” to being closer to Ron Paul.

    Only a periodical like the NYRB and its brethren and writers for it would see this as something positive.

    I urge my readers to read Lilla’s summary of Beck’s novel The Overton Window, and see whether or not you agree that Lilla is correct when he writes that Beck opposes:

    [p]residential national security directives,

    spying on domestic dissenters,

    the privatization of the police and military,

    the preventative detention and torture of potential terrorists,

    undeclared wars,

    the internment of Japanese-Americans,

    the overthrow of Latin American governments,

    the disproportionate incarceration of young black men,

    corporate campaign contributions, and

    the bailout of Wall Street millionaires.

    As Lilla facetiously writes, “Oliver Stone, you’ve got mail. Dick Cheney, you don’t.”

    And yes, Beck — much to the dismay of social conservatives — “has even gone on record as saying he sees no threat to the family in gay marriage.”

    Get that, Andrew Sullivan?

    Of course, Beck seems to change course and move in a new direction each week.

    One does not know where he will end up and what he will say next.

    But that in itself is reason for conservatives to hold him at a distance and to not be so squeamish about criticizing him when he deserves tough criticism.

    That the left hates him is not enough reason to do the reverse and support him uncritically.

    Americans, Beck says, need God in their lives. Many will say “Amen.”

    But that does not mean we, and conservatives, need Glenn Beck.

    (I need Glenn Beck. I think our republic needs Glenn Beck. But no one is infallible, not even the pope.)

    Dynamic Scoring

    “Create a Team B to Fight Budget Estimate Battles, a Citizen’s Budget Office” by Clark Judge

    Posted by: Hugh Hewitt


    As revisited (here: http://tiny.cc/u4n0n ) in the Wall Street Journal last Friday by its formulator, financial expert Kurt Hauser, during the last six decades

    “federal government tax collections as a share of GDP have moved within a narrow band of just under 19% of GDP,”

    *** no matter what the tax rates have been ***

    Why? The answer is identical to Laffer’s.

    As Hauser said in the Journal, “Higher taxes discourage the ‘animal spirits’ of entrepreneurship.

    When tax rates are raised, taxpayers are encouraged to shift, hide, and underreport income.”

    Whether you use Laffer’s data or Hauser’s, the result is the same.

    You are embracing the dynamic scoring side in the budget battle and so putting yourself broadly at odds with the Congressional Democratic leadership and with Congress’s official revenue estimator, the Congressional Budget Office.

    Democrats oppose dynamic scoring, because it undermines their tax-rate-raising agenda.

    Earlier this month, the sheriff announced the creation of an armed “Immigration Posse” to combat illegal immigration.

    Among those signing up were Hollywood actors Steven Seagal and Lou Ferrigno, along with Dick Tracy and Wyatt Earp.

    Fighting Justice Department accusations that his office discriminated against illegal immigrants during arrests, Sheriff Arpaio said the civilian posse of more than 50 members gives citizens a chance to fight the problem inundating their border state.

    “Law enforcement budgets are being cut and agencies are losing personnel and yet the battle to stop illegal immigration must continue,” said the sheriff, who heads the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

    “Arizona is the busiest port of entry for people being smuggled in from Mexico, Latin and South America. So asking for the public’s help in this endeavor makes sense, especially given the success the posses have experienced over the years.”

    The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has investigated, arrested or detained more than 42,000 illegal immigrants during the past three years.

    “My issue is you can’t do everything. I was stating it as a matter of reality, not a matter of policy,” Republican Senator Jon Kyl said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” when asked about his opposition to taking up the new START treaty with Russia.

    Kyl said there was no time for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and the Senate to consider the treaty, which would cut the two countries’ deployed nuclear weapons by about 30 percent within seven years.

    “How can Harry Reid do all the things we’re talking about, deal with expiring tax provisions and in addition to that dealing with the START treaty, which by itself could last two weeks?” Kyl asked.

    Congress must also approve a spending bill to keep the government running, and is expected to debate a repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy that bans gays from openly serving in the military.

    Graham said there was no chance a repeal would pass the Senate.

    Bob Corker: Washington’s dealmaker


    The son of a DuPont (DD, Fortune 500) engineer, Corker is not an intellectual — you don’t see the shelves of biographies and histories that fill other lawmaker’s homes.

    But he throws himself into complex issues with abandon — reading everything he can get his hands on, quizzing analysts, think-tankers, regulators.

    On Wall Street reform “he was the most well-informed person on our side of the aisle — probably on both sides of the aisle,” says retiring Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.

    “He’s knowledgeable because he works at it. Issues like this are so complex that he can have a lot of impact.”

    But inside the clubby Senate halls, Corker’s intense personality — with all of that relentlessness and tell-it-like-it-is candor — can also be a turnoff.

    Market-based reform of health care

    The Importance of Ryan-Rivlin


    But the importance of Ryan-Rivlin goes well beyond its details and current CBO cost estimate.

    The fundamental problem in American health care is that the federal government is providing open-ended financial support for health insurance coverage.

    Most Americans get their insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, or employer-sponsored insurance.

    And in each case, the federal government’s support for that coverage increases commensurately with costs.

    So when costs or premiums rise by an extra dollar, the federal treasury is picking up a sizeable portion of the added expense, thus substantially undermining the incentive for economizing by those enrolled in the coverage or those providing the services.

    The solution is an across-the-board move toward more fixed federal financial support for coverage.

    That’s a central element in the Ryan Roadmap, and has been a theme in just about every market-based reform of health care proposed over the past quarter century.

    At various times, moving away from open-ended entitlements has gotten the support of some Democrats, most especially when former Senator John Breaux championed “premium support” for Medicare in the late 1990s.

    But, by and large, most Democrats have resisted these kinds of moves and attempted to control entitlement costs with arbitrary price controls instead.

    Ryan-Rivlin is thus an important step because it brings a prominent official from the Clinton administration onto a proposal that would decisively move away from the health entitlement status quo.

    That’s no small matter.

    We need lower tax rates on individuals. They’re basically talking about broadening the tax base, lowering the rates.

    They’re also going after spending. Now, there are some things I would do and some things I wouldn’t do — but they’re going after spending.

    What they didn’t do in this plan which I think was a mistake is they didn’t go after fixing health care. They pretty much skirted around on the edge.

    Charlie Rose: Why not?

    Paul Ryan: Because I think they wanted to accept the premise of Obama-care.

    They wanted to accept the structure and the architecture of Obamacare, which obviously I have a huge problem with.

    Charlie Rose: Was there serious conversation about doing something about healthcare?

    Paul Ryan: There is and there will continue to be. Alice Rivlin and I plan on putting out our own plan on healthcare hopefully this week.

    We need to deal with Medicare. Medicare has a multi-trillion dollar unfunded liability and that wasn’t really addressed in this plan — very, very little.

    I think you need to address Medicare and Medicaid if you’re going to deal with this.

    Of the GAO’s, unfunded liability figure, which is $76 trillion figure, almost all of that is healthcare.

    You cannot preempt a debt crisis, get this fiscal house in order, without dealing with health care.

    Profiling passengers is more effective than government groping


    When that didn’t work, they changed tactics.

    Countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom turned to private companies to handle security, with government providing strict oversight.

    Several other countries followed suit in the 1980s and ’90s. The result of this public-private model: Better security and greater public satisfaction.

    These countries now have a “risk-based” approach to security.

    That’s what Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says we have through TSA. It’s not.

    The success of the European private security approach has attracted the attention of Rep. John L. Mica, Florida Republican.

    He has written many of the biggest U.S. airports, urging them to stop using the TSA and contract instead with private companies for security.

    Can’t be done, you say? At least one major airport, San Francisco International, is already operating under such a system.

    The fact is, we are not stuck with the TSA model.

    (And we’re not stuck with the TSA, especially if these workers vote to unionize. The last thing this country needs right now is yet another public sector union whose pensions will have to be bailed out someday.)

    We can and should do better.

    Can somebody help me understand where Lamberth is getting this “standing” thing?


    My reading of the Opinion is that Judge Lamberth is saying that the DC Code and previous court rulings have determined that the Attorney General, the US Attorney for the District of Columbia or an interested third party would have standing to file a quo warranto claim.

    An interested third party must be approved by the Court and Judge Lamberth’s reading of precedential decisions says that an interested third party must be a “public representative” of the people.

    He is saying that (for example) with the court’s approval, a US Senator or a Representative or a US Attorney or the current Special Counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald could file quo warranto against Obama

    if the Attorney General or the US Attorney (both Obama appointees) turned down a quo warranto claim.

    In this instance if the quo warranto claim was “Senator McCain v Obama” with Orly Taitz representing McCain and not trying to be the plaintiff,

    Judge Lamberth might well have granted standing to pursue the Quo Warranto challenge to Obama’s eligibility.

    What I have called the perfect storm, where like-minded people, people who want to destroy the republic, seize an opportunity.

    And the window for opportunity for anarchy and chaos on this planet, to overthrow our system here and the system abroad is now.

    And it’s not just Soros who would like to change the system.

    There is more to this story than just a disgruntled 22-year-old soldier who wants to make a name for himself.

    Again, the kid describes world anarchy as beautiful and horrifying. And remember, these leaks don’t teach us anything new.

    All they do is create, like he said, anarchy and chaos around the globe.

    Well, what was step three of George Soros’ plan for overthrowing countries, if you remember from this program about a month ago?

    Step three was — there it is — destabilize the state, create anti-government sentiment. Hmm.

    Does this destabilize the state? You damn right it does. Does it cause anti-government sentiment?

    Yes! It’s not really hard to do these days, is it?

    I want you to check this video out. It’s a socialist that the “The Blaze” posted last week. He’s saying that the time for revolution is now.

    Find it at TheBlaze.com.

    It’s not just George Soros or Wiki or any group of people that want us to, you know, collapse, make waves and create confusion.

    It is “operation hemorrhage,” death by a thousand paper cuts. And it’s not just one group trying to do it.

    But remember this — we surround them, it’s an illusion. Just don’t cry for the top to come down and protect you, oh, because they will.

    Investigator: Gov’t fogging Obama’s Connecticut ties

    Agency announces plan to begin random assignment of Social Security numbers

    Posted: November 30, 2010

    By Jerome R. Corsi


    Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels says the government policy change is an attempt to cover up in retrospect the controversy over Obama’s Social Security number by making it impossible in the future to trace where a Social Security applicant lived at the time the person applied for a Social Security number.

    “Now all the Social Security Administration has to say is that they have been experimenting with randomized numbers for some time,” Daniels said.

    “How would anybody prove differently?”

    She continued, “With Obama, there is obviously a case of fraud going on here.

    In 15 years of having a private investigator’s license in Ohio, I’ve never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii.

    There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly.”

    So far the White House has refused to answer WND questions about Obama’s Social Security number.

    In a White House press conference on June 10, 2010, WND White House correspondent Les Kinsolving asked White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about Obama’s Social Security number.

    “Birth certificates,” interrupted another reporter.

    “He [WND correspondent Jerome Corsi] reports – no, I did not bring up the birth certificate – he reports that investigators Susan Daniels and John Sampson are asking why the Social Security number reserved for Connecticut applicants.

    And my question, did you know …” Kinsolving said.

    “Hold on, that’s two sentences, Lester. That … I …” Gibbs said.

    “That’s two sentences, and my question – do you know of any record that the president ever had a mailing address in Connecticut?” Kinsolving asked.

    As WND reported at the time, Gibbs never answered the question about Obama’s Social Security number, choosing instead to divert the discussion into a consideration of the president’s birth certificate, before ending the press conference abruptly.

    (Yeah, there seems to be something fishy about Obama having more than one Social Security number. Would that have something to do with why we cannot see his undergrad records? Did he qualify for financial aid as a foreign student?)

    Don’t blame me when you are unable or unwilling to understand my theory.

    I’ve put the pieces of the puzzle together and your affirmative action mindset is unable to grasp it.

    The fact is minors can and do move out of the country with their parents and renounce their US citizenship, especially in third world countries who do not participate in the Hague Convention standards.

    Regardless of Barry’s mothers aspirations, Barry Soetoro was assigned a locally employed staff member at the Jakarta Embassy to investigate and report on Barry’s request to renounce his US citizenship.

    A Certificate of Loss of Citizenship is issued by the US SoS at his or her discretion to any US citizen, even a 5 year old.

    Barry came back to America, alone, when he was 10 years old as an Indonesian National.

    His grandmother was appointed his guardian after his mother’s parental rights were extinguished due to abandonment (See Barry came back to America alone).

    Barry’s father, Barack Hussein Obama, returned to Hawaii to object to the Soetoro adoption and have it annulled.

    Barry’s name was legally changed back to Barack Hussein Obama, II.

    An American Refugee Organization located in Connecticut handled BHO’s II legal paperwork on his behalf.

    Consequently, he was issued a Connecticut SSN because that is where it was mailed to.

    He applied for a SSN as a Legal Resident of the US and not a US Citizen.

    Years later, BHO II applied to become a naturalized citizen on of the US.

    This can be verified with his Certificate of Naturalization on file with US Customs and Immigration Service.

    The paper trail is thick and undeniable.

    Whack-A-Mole approach needs greater offensive counterterrorism strategy against Islamist radicalization


    PHOENIX (November 30, 2010) –

    Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) issued the following statement regarding the FBI’s actions with regard to Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s attack in Portland, OR.

    “The thwarted attack of Mohamed Osman Mohamud continues to highlight the ever-increasing threat that the ideological slippery slope of political Islam (Islamism) poses to America.

    The comments that Mohamud made to investigators and that have been released to the media demonstrate a belief in Islamist supremacy that is in conflict with American values and our very way of life.

    Despite the courageous work of our FBI agents and Homeland Security the threat of homegrown terror from radicalized Muslims continues to exponentially increase.

    We are only playing defense against this growing threat with no signs of an offensive strategy.

    Disapproval shows no signs of abating. If Obama moves to center, I believe independents will, too.

    RepPaulRyan | November 30, 2010 |

    Student: Thank you very much for coming. In recent years inequality has been on the rise in America, what steps do you as Republicans support to lower inequality?

    Congressman Ryan: Let me jump on that real quick. That is an insightful and important question.

    There is basically two ways to go at it- that we have been struggling in this country for, this in the last century, with respect to inequality.

    Do we believe that the economic pie is fixed and therefore it’s the government’s role to redistribute the pie more equitably?

    I would argue that that is one of the prevailing doctrines that has occurred in the past couple of years. Or, do we want to grow the pie?

    So that everybody can increase in their opportunity. That’s really a different idea.

    So what is the aspiration we want to have as a country and then let’s go do that.

    Do we want to have an opportunity society, where people have never seen it before from the corners of the country where people have not had it before, really have a shot to make the most out of their lives.

    That is what our policy ought to be designed to do. Not taking from some to give to another, but giving people the opportunity to make something of themselves.

    Because if you keep raising the barrier, or putting new barriers or bars by taking from some and giving to others, than you won’t have investment, you won’t have risk-taking.

    We want to put a premium on hard work and success.

    We want people to earn success in this country and enjoy the fruits of their labor and rewards and we want more people to get it.

    So that is the kind of society that we ought to be striving for.

    You know in Milwaukee, we have the worst, lowest graduation rates for African Americans in the country; it’s a crime against society.

    Why should we not be giving these poor families who are trapped in these failing schools a voucher to go to a good school so their kids can get a good education?

    I mean there are things like this, that have been bothering people like me for a long time, that we want to do to give people who have never seen opportunity before, a chance at opportunity, so they can make the most of their lives.

    This is not a rob, enter to pay poll kind of society, this ought to be an opportunity society where we do everything we can and government has a very important role to play in this, to democratize capitalism, to decentralize the concentration of wealth in America so that everybody is an owner.

    You know, I have been pushing these social security reforms for years, so that everyone who is a worker in society is also an owner in society.

    So that every person can own a part of this enterprise system, so they have a stake in the outcome of our society and our economy.

    These are things that we can achieve in this country, which means that everyone can tap and reach their potential.

    But if we think that that idea of America is over and that it is the job of government now to decide who gets what when where and how, when it comes to healthcare, income, retirement, then we are simply managing our decline.

    We are turning ourselves to something like what we see in Europe, a cradle of the grave welfare society that cannot sustain itself, when we manage our decline, it is not the kind of path that we want.

    So let’s find those pockets of America, and there are lots of them, where people do not get those opportunities, where they can’t pull themselves up from their boot straps, and they can’t find the kind of education they need to get ahead and let’s address those problems.
