While the symbolism on the 2017 cover of the Economist may seem confusing or even random, it’s anything but. The elite’s plan to war with God is center stage on this cover.
What I noticed that was not mentioned:
- Deck begins with The Tower (Jesus) and ends in The Star (Lucifer.) This tower is representative of the true church & Jesus.
- Proverbs 18:10 – “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.”
- Satan hates the truth – Jesus. This tower is unsafe, as it is full of deadly smoke and is falling down. This tower is built on a hill. The entire world can metaphorically see it (the Church.)
- Matthew 5:14 – “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.”
- The concentrated destruction is coming not from the people, but from the sky. This is not weather as the rest of the sky is clear and there is no rain.
- Ephesians 6:12 – “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Two sides on the same team:
- The left side: The world / secularism / the occult – they’re at war with Jesus. What’s interesting is that it’s the communist flag (The North) but backward (a favorite sign from the occult elite.) So, this is not necessarily everyday people, but a country run by the occult elite, and is thus run by Satan.
- Daniel 11:15-16 – “15 Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand. 16 The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it.”
- The right side: The faux church (Only ever quotes Matthew 7:1, is a friend to the world, will do what’s right in their own eyes.) This false church is parading a dead Jesus – not one who is alive. They have a form of godliness but deny its power. There will be wolves in sheep’s clothing warring against God.
- 2 Timothy 3: 1- 5 – “1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”
- Matthew 7:15 – “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”
- The secular world / occult world & the faux church / occult church both have major grievances with Jesus. You can’t preach on sin, repentance, ANYTHING without being accused of being –phobic, closed minded, bigoted, backward, etc. Both are enemies of the Truth and want to see the destruction of Jesus and His coming kingdom. This card is what the elite hopes against all hope to achieve. Remember fellow Christians, we’ve read the back of the book. We win.
