GNOSTICS KNOW ‘THE EYE’

 
Have you ever had one of those songs invade your head uninvited, and rudely decide to hang around even when you try to show it the door? I think we’ve all had that experience haven’t we?

A couple weeks ago, that happened to me; it wasn’t even a song I knew very well; it was cut on an Alan Parson’s Project album back in 1982 and while I can recall hearing it on occasion over the years, I didn’t really know the lyrics. In fact I remember when it first came out, I thought the one line said something like “…pie in the sky”.

Of course we all know what song I’m referring to; when it visited me those two weeks ago, I was a bit curious about it, so I grabbed my smart phone and googled the title and found the lyrics. As I read them, my eyes got wider and wider with recognition of what these words might have meant in the song.

Here are the lyrics:

EYE IN THE SKY

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of Chances before
But I ain't gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

Chorus:
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't Cry cause I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the Signs are deceiving

(Chorus)

Now please don’t misunderstand me; I’m not necessarily saying that these lyrics are definitely contrived to have a secret or occulted (hidden) meaning, but as I said, I recognized certain key words and phrases that are very relevant to many different secret and esoteric societies, and most especially the Gnostic society (which seems to be experiencing a resurgence (since the mid ‘90’s under the preferred appellation of ‘neo-Gnostic).

SPLINTERING THE EYE

The song starts out a bit innocuous and with seemingly little reason (albeit some rhyme!):

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of Chances before
But I ain't gonna give anymore…

This first stanza could possibly be interpreted as one who has a position of authority and has in some way been infringed upon, or offended and the admonition is not to rebel even though there has been opportunities for such before – so such a point that this power or authority is unwilling to give any more chances. Still pretty vague, right? Second stanza then:

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

This second stanza starts off with the admonition of refraining from saying anything - - incriminating perhaps? And why? Because there could be dire consequences? Recall your B grade movie where some Kremlin agent casts a wary eye upon a comrade who is unduly criticizing the government and the agent says in typical Russian fashion: “I vill try to forget you said deez vurds, comrade…”

I SEE FIRE IN YOUR EYE
Curiously enough, don’t things seem to be going along this way even here in America, with various government agencies in the name of ‘security’ are listening and reading and watching citizens for anything that would label them as a ‘potential terrorists’?

This smacks of the sorts of 1984, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451 themes that address the idea of totalitarian society where surveillance is all encompassing – a bit more of this in a moment . . .

Not letting “the fire rush to your head” could mean many different things – don’t be hot headed, keep cool, relax, etc. 

Yet the idea of ‘fire’ has interesting connotations for secret societies and mystery religions. Fire was a symbol for illumination, understanding and wisdom. People ‘in the know’ would disdain common folk as being “unworthy” of such knowledge; Freemasons say this sort of thing regularly to those who enquire about their rituals and beliefs. Such smugly superior adepts would not want such fire to enter into the minds of dullards; those who understand these societies and what they are all about accuse them (rightly so) of worshipping Lucifer (and yes, these accusations have indeed been heard before).


And now we come to the part of the sun – the Sun is also representative (just like fire) of illumination and wisdom – and societies such as the Freemasons will often ask each other: “Brother, do you face the east?” – because that is the place of the dawn, where illumination begins for the initiates and the adepts as well. Yet not for the uninitiated; while the Sun brings understanding to those enlightened or destined for such, it brings blindness to those without understanding: and so they believe what the Esotericist would call “lies”.

'LUCIE' IN THE SKY

Third Stanza:

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
Here we read about the ‘eye in the sky’ and it’s reasonably well known that the Egyptian god Horus was represented by the Sun. Even on the album cover in which this song appears, we have the image of Horus’ eye, pictured above today’s article

 The Masonic Society and Order of the Golden Dawn and so many, including the Gnostics and all the ancient cultures viewed the Sun as the Eye of ‘God’ by different names, most notably, Lucifer and the Great Architect of the Universe.

The ‘eye in the sky’ could also possibly be a reference to the surveillance, high-tech kind of society as mentioned before.


A relatively recent film called  Eagle Eye: synopsis   was pretty much about this very thing:

Here is the official trailer for the movie: Eagle Eye Trailer at the 2:15 minute mark you catch a very brief glimpse of the interface device of this extremely sophisticated computer system – and it looks like a giant eye.

This one who is the Eye in the Sky, a.k.a. Horus, and according to Albert Pike, Grand General in the Masonic Order, a.k.a. Lucifer is “looking at you (and he would have you believe that he) can read your mind”. 


In actuality computer software programs have reached such a level of sophistication that they can profile people and anticipate their actions based on their data profile (which supposedly the government has on all of us citizens in a ‘cradle to grave’ monitoring method that is aware of all our purchases, preferences, emails, phone logs, online communications, properties, etc; and all of this information is being stored in  gigantic supercomputer systems around the globe); so its almost like mind reading; but Satan – the great Observer of humanity for over 6000 years is a master psychologist who knows very much about how we as a species ‘ticks’.

The UNRIGHTEOUS ROBBER-RULER REIGNS

Since Satan is the god of this world, he is indeed “the maker of rules” and making more rules, regulations, unjust laws that abrogate our Constitution, curtails the freedom and expression of not merely religion in a connotative sense, but denotatively, Christianity; and setting up his new world order system right down to its last (presently) finishing touches, preparing to spring it on the unsuspecting masses of “fools” that he is “dealing with”.

The LORD Jesus said of the enemy (“thief”) that he has come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10a) and he indeed is robbing us blind; take for example, some of his servants (many of these sort actually belonged to secret and semi-secret societies and organizations) who were bankers, politicians and business tycoons who created the “Creature from Jeykll Island” or the Federal Reserve system which is directing the money flow upwards, away from the diminishing middle class and into the hands of the elite, leaving a Super-class oligarchy and the rest of us as an abjectly poor world (once completed).

The incredible lock down and absolute reign of tyranny is what the Scriptures portray of the reign of the anti-Christ or “the Beast” where technology, terror and the terrible Beast and his minions will bring enslavement to the human race (economically, politically and spiritually):
DANIEL 7:7-8

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. (See also Dan. 7:23; Rev. 13:1-4, 17-18; 2 Thess. 2:3-4, 7-10)


As observed before, the ten horns, representing the global government is already in place prior to the rise of the Beast. For those that espouse a pre-trib rapture (such as myself), we can’t be here for the revelation of the Beast (2 Thess. 2:7) but it’s possible we could be here to witness the complete implementation of the one world government. The time differential between their rise to power and the Beast is an unknown.

Yet Satan robs us of more than merely this: our freedoms, our sources of true information; he has worked tirelessly (no wonder he is known by some as ‘Tired Old Nick’) at stealing away the Word of God from the true church (Luke 8:5, 12), throughout the ages, and no less in our present generation!

As I said previously, this song may be ‘just a song’ written by the Alan Parson’s Project band, and I could easily be attributing too much to this song, but these lyrics (at least in my mind, having researched this sort of thing for about twenty years now) are quite compelling to me.
Oh! Some of the other songs written/composed by this band . . .
Pyramid, Eve, The Raven, Pyramania, Lucifer (an instrumental), Damned If I Do, and some other rather interesting titles (Eye in the Sky ).

Once Lucifer rebelled against the LORD God (Isaiah 14:12-15Ezekiel 28:12-19) he later showed up in the guise of, or perhaps possessing a serpent’s body (Genesis 3:1-8) the fact that Eve is not stunned by a talking snake suggests that prior to the Fall of man, humans could in some sense communicate with the animal kingdom – at least that’s a plausibility to explain her unsurprised attitude) and tempted Eve and by proxy, Adam into rebelling against God Himself and taking of the fruit of KNOWLEDGE of Good and Evil.

THE MIASMA THAT IS MYSTERY

REVELATION 17:4-6
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots* And Abominations Of The Earth.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

* A comprehensive series on TTUF on  "The MOTHER of HARLOTS EMERGES"


From there, such mystery religions and societies slowly developed (perhaps greatly increased as a result of the demonic interactions of  Genesis 6?, codified at the Tower of Babel (“gateway to ‘God’”; follow this link to read FROM the MIND of FIRE, an article that has to do with Babylon, its rebirth, the one world religion, and the impurities of false doctrines) Leaven, Fowl & Globalism Reborn have looked at the Serpent as a kind of savior (The serpent is seen as a benevolent god in Gnosticism, Hinduism and many other religions and societies) – a bringer of illumination and wisdom and understanding, and they revere the woman who acted admirably (in their eyes) in taking of the forbidden fruit (Interestingly enough this is also the view held in Mormonism, and their ambition to become ‘gods of their own worlds’!).

Once the LORD God scattered the people of Babel by the confusion of languages (Genesis 11:1-9) they took their esoteric knowledge with them and developed independent priesthoods and mystery religions that, at their core are identical (with simple variations of trappings and rituals in many cases).

These societies and mystery religions migrated from one ancient kingdom to the next in the form of sorcerers, mages, priesthoods, astrologers, etc. (these groups are listed in the book of Daniel 2:2, 27) until they gave birth to the Jewish Kabala and the Christian Gnostics which in turn led to the more modern versions of these things – such as Freemasonry, the Illuminati and the Theosophical Society and Neo-Gnostic doppelganger Scientology. See: Scientology and Gnosticism

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR GNOSTICS

“Iraneaus took the time to research and read their writings and spoke with them and became their greatest opponent debating them. He wrote, ‘These men falsify the oracles of God and prove themselves evil interpreters of the good word of revelation. They also overthrow the faith of many, by drawing them away, under a pretense of [superior] knowledge, from Him who rounded and adorned the universe; as if, forsooth, They had something more excellent and sublime to reveal, than that God who created the heaven and the earth, and all things that are therein.’ (Iranaeus, Against Heresies, Book 1)” –
“Gnostics are those set within a world where they are the spiritual persons (pneumatikot) who possess the light particles and need only to be awakened in order to inherit their destinies. In the world there are also said to be psychic persons (psychikoi), who are a grade lower and need to work for whatever salvation they may be able to attain. The Gnostics often identified such psychics with Christians and understandably irritated the Christian heresiologists such as Irenaeus. The third division of this view of humanity is composed of material person likoi or sarkikoi), who have no chance to inherit any form of salvation but are destined for destruction. Accordingly, it should be obvious such a view of anthropology is very deterministic in orientation.” (pp. 445-446 The Evangelical Dictionary of Theology Edited by Walter Elwell)

~ The two quotes above taken from the Let Us Reason article below.

The knowledge of Gnostic beliefs is said to be a secret knowledge, or mystery knowledge, or even occult (meaning “hidden”) knowledge; however if we encounter anyone who claims to have “the secret teachings of Jesus” we must reject such material as unbiblical; the LORD gave no such secret or hidden or occulted teachings or knowledge: Here is a superb example of Gnostic belief on such “secret teachings”


The Secret Teachings of Jesus


Note the association of these supposed teachings of Jesus with those of all world religions and how this belief will solidify the apostate church with these; also the misapplication of the verses where Jesus states that the mysteries are revealed to an inner, elite group of ‘enlightened Christians’ as opposed to the common teachings (as recorded in the Bible) to those ‘lesser Christians’: see Matthew 13:10-12.  


These so called secret teachings were the parables that the LORD spoke to the people, but He then went on and explained these ‘secrets’ or mysteries to His disciples and these are recorded in Scripture for all to read and understand!


JOHN 18:19-20
19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

Here is a competent review of the history behind this ‘Migration of Mysteries’ from The Fuel Project:  The Four Kingdoms

As Gnosticism (What is Gnostism?) 

proliferated throughout the early age of the church of Jesus Christ, the secret knowledge and wisdom eventually found a new home in the Society of Jesus or the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church.

At the same time, the Greek philosopher Plato, who also held to the ideas of enlightenment and Gnostic beliefs were promoted among the secular, until today, his teachings are still promoted in universities around the world; such teachings providing a frame work for the new world order to build upon politically and socially, as well as spiritually – through the esoteric beliefs and practices as found in the Roman Catholic Church and its promotion of contemplative prayer, which has pretty much infiltrated the evangelical church via the Emergent Church Movement.

Indeed, the traditions of the Gnostics have permeated the political, social, educational and spiritual aspects of this world!

From Tony Kiar’s SCRAPBOOK With TONY:  LOST IN SPIRIT LAND 

So we see that the Eye in the Sky is watching ever so carefully over his developing new world order – and we who are staying in the Word of Truth, the Holy Scriptures can and will properly identify these false systems in government, religion and society as a whole; remaining pure, free of the terrible taint of deception and falsehoods, may we warn others of those things that are about to transpire in this world . . .

And truly for us, the saints of the Living God: may we keep our eyes on the sky and not believe the lies; for Jesus Christ returns soon from on high!

LUKE 21:27-29

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
