Throwback Post: Revealing the Satanic agenda on the cover of The Economist.

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.

(I originally posted the following on January 2017 on FaceLikeTheSun’s channel in response to “The Tower Card.”)

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.

Facebook, Twitter and the Social Media Times

“Twitter’s only purpose is to get people fired.” That was my sentiment prior to 2010, while listening to a reporter on ESPN talk about some big-shot athlete putting his foot into his mouth. You’ve heard the stories, people, both public and private, say something stupid and then get canned from work. People forget that the Internet no longer provides anonymity, especially when their faces and first names are plastered all over their work. Other than giving people the opportunities to make a jerk of themselves, does Twitter serve a purpose?

For private people, Twitter is unnecessary. What you eat, who you’re fighting with, some quirky quip, what-have-you, is all unnecessary information to share with the world. Twitter (and Facebook) has turned into a dirty laundry airing site. For people not trying to build a brand around themselves, posting Tweets is a time waster.

Twitter JournalismWhat about journalists? Does Twitter serve a purpose for them? Absolutely! Breaking news and journalism go hand in hand. Forget the AP wire; leads for local, timely stories come straight from Twitter. People who post what’s happening around them are a wonderful source for breaking news leads. When journalists turn their Twitters into a sounding board for their snarky opinions, that’s when things take a turn toward the irrelevant. For example, according to Paul Farhi of the American Journalism Review , “Reporters now routinely tweet from all kinds of events — speeches, meetings and conferences, sports events. In February, a federal judge gave his blessing to Ron Sylvester of the Wichita Eagle to use Twitter to report on a trial of six suspected gang members, the first time tweeting had been permitted inside a federal courtroom. Sylvester tweeted frequently from the trial, providing a nearly contemporaneous account. On the other hand, not all tweets are equally useful. Tweets from reporters covering the heavily choreographed political conventions last summer produced plenty of snark and trivia, but little in the way of important or interesting news.”

Journalists can best utilize Twitter by using it to find breaking news, cover breaking news and linking to their articles. When they use it “like everyone else” it cheapens their page and clutters the real news that the journalist posts. At the same time, Twitter shouldn’t be used as a replacement for real journalism. Twitter should be a tool, not the sole medium, for reporting stories. According the Mathew Ingram of, “Twitter doesn’t replace any other form of media or journalism, any more than YouTube replaces television, or Facebook replaces the need for normal human interaction. Twitter is just a tool, like the telephone or the video camera — it doesn’t replace the need for traditional journalists.”

With Facebook, it is noticeable that like Twitter, people not building a brand around themselves aren’t posting breaking news updates. Journalists would have an impossible time sifting through all the trite status updates, photos, games, etc. for thousands of people to find any relevant nugget of newsworthy information. If anything, Facebook for journalists is more of a promotional tool to drive readers to their articles – not to find information from the readers.

For journalists, Twitter allows a symbiotic relationship between a journalist and readers, whereas Facebook allows for a commensal relationship where the journalist benefits the most. Social Media is a tool that’s great for journalists but could never be a replacement for actual article writing.

From Scribe to Star: Journalism in the Information Age

The newsroom as it once was: man in a suit, jacket slung on the back of his wooden chair, cigarette smoldering in an ash tray, tattered spiral notebook covered in shorthand, with the click-click-clicking of the typewriter filling the room.

Once this story is off to press, there’s not much else to do, unless there’s a follow-up story to be written. Granted, there’s always a chance that some crotchety reader will write in to the editor to complain, but otherwise, this story will fade into oblivion in a short time as the writer pulls out the typewriter to tell yet another story.

Those days are distant memories. With cheap, available technology comes the ability to document stories on the fly. Connected constantly with a taste for information, readers want more than “just the facts.” They want commentary, they want to weigh in on the subject; they want discussion.

Journalists have changed job duties throughout the ages. In the days of the gladiators, scribes would post an “Acta Diurna,” a sort of public notice and news system carved in stone and posted in a public place. Other than writing the information and carving it into a tablet, these scribe-journalists didn’t have much else to do.

If you think typing is hard, try a chisel! Journalists have always had to deal with technology.
In our age of information, journalists are more than scribes. Today’s news gatherers don’t just write, they journal. With the ability to get more work done, the higher the expectation is for journalists to thrive with expanded job duties such as engaging in social media and responding to readers’ concerns. This isn’t something to complain about, but rather accept it and move on.

Newspapers and journalists are in no position to resist adapting to and utilizing new technologies. In with the new but keep the old. To make it as a journalist and to provide a service customers want, it’s imperative for journalists today to have a presence in the social media sphere.
