To understand the fascinating connection between doorways and the Giants that are set to come through them, it’s always best to start at the beginning…
By Thomas Horn
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors…
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
And He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
In recent broadcast programs with Dr. Michael S. Heiser featuring the release of his important new A Companion to the Book of Enoch: A Reader’s Commentary: The Book of the Watchers concepts have been raised regarding how humans live in a world of three visible dimensions and one observable dimension that we call time. However, it wasn’t always thus. My old Bible prophecy friend Chuck Missler (deceased) once described how humanity’s original design—that reflected in Adam and Eve before the Fall—permitted access to as many as ten dimensions. Missler’s reference to a ten-dimension “metacosm”’ is supported by the current theory of quantum physicists today. A recent article at Universe Today confirms this:
According to Superstring Theory, the fifth and sixth dimensions are where the notion of possible worlds arises. If we could see on through to the fifth dimension, we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones.
In the sixth, we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one (i.e. the Big Bang). In theory, if you could master the fifth and sixth dimension, you could travel back in time or go to different futures.
In the seventh dimension, you have access to the possible worlds that start with different initial conditions. Whereas in the fifth and sixth, the initial conditions were the same and subsequent actions were different, here, everything is different from the very beginning of time. The eighth dimension again gives us a plane of such possible universe histories, each of which begins with different initial conditions and branches out infinitely (hence why they are called infinities).
In the ninth dimension, we can compare all the possible universe histories, starting with all the different possible laws of physics and initial conditions. In the tenth and final dimension, we arrive at the point in which everything possible and imaginable is covered. Beyond this, nothing can be imagined by us lowly mortals, which makes it the natural limitation of what we can conceive in terms of dimensions.[i]
If you think all this sounds like gobbledygook, then you’re not alone. Most of this rests upon something quantum physicists call Superstring Theory. Essentially, the earliest version of this theory postulated a particle called a “boson.” If that sounds familiar, it’s because the massive ring colliders in Geneva operated by the CERN laboratory are called the Large Hadron Collider, and its stated purpose is to search for the Higgs “boson” (for more, see our chapter on CERN). String Theory proponents claim point particles (like the boson, fermion, and other subatomic particles) are actually strings, but because of our dimensional constraints we can only perceive them as points. When the points connect or become entangled, they form a “line” or “string.” Each string oscillates at a predetermined wavelength; some are open strings, and others are closed (loops). I’ll admit that this whole theory muddles my poor brain, but I include it to make the “point” that the world is massively more complicated and layered than we fallen humans can now perceive.
When one understands the ten-dimension theory correctly, as quoted above from the Universe Today article, then access to the fifth and sixth dimensions would allow a person to do what God already can—travel through time. Access to the fourth dimension could, theoretically, make it appear that you can walk through walls, because you simply move from the moment on one side of the wall to the same moment where you arrive on the other. No, I’m not going to yammer on about dimensional theories—truthfully, they are described differently from one physicist to another. Without knowing the mind of God, it is clearly impossible to discern the ultimate truth about dimensional construction and manipulation. However, based upon clues found within the Bible and extrabiblical sources such as the Book of Enoch (GET IT FREE IN OFFER HERE), one can discern a great deal about the possibility of accessing other dimensions via portals and/or gates.
The opening to this article quotes several verses, so let’s jump right in with these three to get us started. Psalm 24:7 is a verse sung in many churches today within the lyrics of the Lutheran hymn, “Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates” by George Weissel. The context of the hymn is Psalm 24, a psalm of David, written to declare God as Supreme Creator and Owner of the Universe:
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah. (Psalm 24, emphasis added)
David, the apple of God’s eye, king of all Israel and ancestor of Jesus Christ, is writing to declare that one day, a generation will rise that will see an Everlasting King, the King of Glory. This generation will “stand in his holy place,” and only a generation with “clean hands, and a pure heart” will do so. While this may refer to the church, it is actually addressed to Jacob, therefore this is probably the generation of Messianic Jews who will see Christ return at the end of the Tribulation Period. Notice HOW the KING returns: The “gates” are ordered to lift up their heads, and the “everlasting doors” are also told to be “lifted up.”
Now, the original language translated as “gates” in the King James Version is transliterated as shahar. It is used in expressions such as “gates of death” (Psalms 9:13), “gate of the Lord” (Psalms 118:20), and “gate of heaven” (Genesis 28:17).”[ii] There is something most intriguing about this word. Ugaritic is a language that is closely related to Hebrew, utilizing “proto-Semitic” phonemes (or single sounds). In Ugaritic, Shahar is actually the name of the god of the “dawn.” Now, couple this with the Septuagint translation of the verse:
Lift up your gates, ye princes, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors. (Psalms 24:7, Septuagint, English Translation, emphasis added)[iii]
Princes? There is no obvious equivalent in the Masoretic Hebrew text. Do “princes” have gates, or is this directed to immortals called princes, like “the prince of the power of the air”? In fact, the construction—where the “everlasting doors” are being addressed and told to be “lifted up”—personifies the doors, and seems to require the existence of an “entity” (or entities) tending the gate, a concept shared by many ancient religions. Another LXX translation reads:
Lift up the gates, those rulers of you. Lift eternal gates, and the King of glory will enter (Psalm 23:7, LES).
Archon is the Greek term used in the Septuagint that is rendered into English as “princes” or “rulers”.[iv] It is the same term translated as “principalities” in the famous spiritual warfare passage: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12, emphasis added). These entities are described in a Greek lexicon as “a supernatural power having some particular role in controlling the destiny and activities of human beings—‘power, authority, lordship, ruler, wicked force.’”[v] Finally, if we take the text seriously, the command to “lift eternal gates” requires the existence of an immortal gatekeeper.
Is it possible that Psalm 24 is actually referring to a dimensional gateway that Jesus Christ passes through to access to the earthly realm? Do the principalities of the “gates” and “everlasting doors” control access into our current “three-dimensional” world? Might this be the impetus for the angelic war in heaven that results in Satan and the principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness being cast down to the earth?
When Jesus was resurrected, He became the “firstfruit” of all who would one day be born anew into eternal bodies. His mortal body took on immortality. Yet, in order for Him to return to earth and be seen by humans with limited, mortal perceptions, He will enter through a gate and an everlasting door. In His eternal body, Christ had the ability to walk through walls, yet He had substance: The disciple who doubted, Thomas, could put his own hand into Christ’s wounds, left there as signs to all that He was the same man who had been crucified. Christ knows the secrets to opening the gates, for He commands them all. He created them all—and yet, one day each believer in his or her resurrected, eternal body, will ascend via an open gate and stand before Him. We cannot now step from our limited world into His presence at will. It is a one-way gate, opened only from above. If God calls a prophet into His presence as He did the apostle John in Revelation 1, then we may travel there in spirit—and one day, all who trust in His propitiation for our sins will pass through these gates to instantly be with Him.
So, where else in the Bible might we find possible references to gates and doors? We will look at many references in this short online series but perhaps the most cited passage is in Genesis 28:12. Jacob has just left his dying father, Isaac, having tricked him into believing Jacob was actually Esau and therefore “stealing” the elder twin’s “blessing.” Shortly after this pivotal exchange between brothers, Jacob leaves Beersheba, a place name that means “well of the sevenfold oath,” a reference to the seven ewes Abraham gave to Abimelech and Phicol of the Philistines. An interesting aside here is the possible, hidden meaning in the name “Abimelech,” which can be transliterated as “Abi-Melech,” or “my father is the king,” which is obvious since this man is now king, or as “Abi-Molech,” meaning “my spiritual father is Molech.”[vi] If the latter translation is correct, and it does make some sense, then this king had considerable power in the spiritually fallen realm. I bring this up because Jacob is traveling through a dangerous region where fallen entities and demons have dominion.

Jacob travels northeast toward the land of kinsman Laban, heading toward the region called Charrhan, probably referring to “Haran,” a name that actually means “mountain climber,” indicating a mountainous or hilly terrain, perhaps. The site of Charran (Haran) is modern-day Sanliurfa, Turkey, and there is an interesting Muslim legend passed down through the centuries there involving Abraham and Nimrod! It is said that Nimrod threw Abraham into a fire, but that the flames miraculously became water, and the logs for the fire became fish. Today, tourists are shown a pool filled with “miracle fish” (carp) and told the story. Is there any truth to it? Well, Jewish oral tradition[vii] states that Abraham’s father, Tehran, served Nimrod (presumably after the Babel event), believing Nimrod to be a god. Nimrod, the legend says, was insecure after the whole language thing, and he feared that a true heir to the throne might show up one day. As a male and a direct descendent of Noah, Abraham posed a threat to Nimrod, so the paranoid king tried several times to kill the child. The Muslim tradition above is perhaps a different telling of the Jewish tale. But suffice it to say that Charrhan is definitely connected to supernatural events.
Bible archaeologists mostly agree that Jacob chose to “rest” eleven to twelve miles north of current-day Jerusalem, in an area today called Beit El. Weary from his travels, Jacob stopped for the night in the Judean Hills, where he chose a rock to serve as his pillow:
And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;
And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.
And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. (Genesis 28:11–19)
Ulam is often translated as “formerly”; therefore, the old name of this city would have been “Luz,” a name meaning “almond wood.” Jacob however discovers in his dream that this location contains the gateway to heaven, therefore he renames it Beth-El, “house of God.” Actually, a church was built there in the fourth century AD, and there are some remains of a small town built in the Byzantine period.[viii] Should we mount an expedition there in search of ancient technology? Not likely for a theologically significant reason.
Man-made technology suggests the Hebrew parallel to Etemenanki, “The House of the Foundation-Platform of Heaven and Earth”[ix] could otherwise be known as the Tower of Babel. However, in Jacob’s dream, the portal was revealed via divine initiative. The contact between Heaven and earth was by the grace of God not the ingenuity of man. A highly regarded Old Testament scholar, Victor Hamilton, argues any perceived parallel with the Babel gate is superficial:
One cannot help but be struck by the parallel between the stairway in this dream, a stairway whose top reaches the sky, and the tower of Babel, whose top also extended into the heavens (11:4). But the similarity stops here. Unlike the Babel tower, Jacob’s stairway is not a product of human delusions of grandeur. It is a way by which God will make himself known to Jacob. Messengers, not pride, go up and down this structure.[x]
The Hebrew term sullām, sometimes rendered “ladder,” is a hapax legomena—it only occurs once in the Hebrew Bible. Since we have no Scripture to compare, ancient Semitic literature can be helpful. Many scholars now think sullām is connected to the Akkadian simmiltu, for “stairway.”[xi] Since it supports two-way traffic in Jacob’s dream, a stairway does seem more logical than a ladder. Others see a more natural explanation.
Old Testament scholar Cornelis Houtman believes Bethel is a sacred mountain, pointing out that “according to Midrash Rabbah the rabbis understood sulläm as a symbol of mount Sinai.”[xii] The Mountain of God, Mount Horeb, Mount Sinai and Mount Paran are all names for Mount Sinai. Interestingly, the gematriah of the Hebrew sullam and Sinai both have the value of 130, giving them esoteric affinity.
Sullam= 2 *5 * 13 = 130
Sinay= 2 *5 * 13 = 130
Affinity or not, the relevance of such a connection is probably only historical. The Ark of the Covenant, representing God’s presence on earth, spent some time at Bethel (Judges 2:1, 20:27), but was taken to Shiloh in the time of the Judges (1 Samuel 1:3, 3:3), Later, David installed the ark in a tent at Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6). It was placed in the Temple with great ceremony in the reign of Solomon (1 Kings 8:1ff.). Accordingly, Mount Zion—the Temple Mount—became the new Mountain of God. A more ancient Hebraic interpretation—through a supernatural worldview—centers on the immortals.
The Midrash Tanchuma posits that the angels Jacob saw were the supernatural princes of the nations, and the two-way traffic depicts the rise and fall of these principalities and their associated worldly kingdoms.[xiii] Following the Babel dispersion, these spirit-beings quickly became idolized on earth as gods, giving birth to the worship of fallen immortals worldwide in the guise of various pagan religions. According to this Rabbinic tradition, Jacob is a symbol for the nation of Israel, and the angels symbolize the Divine Council through the wanderings of the Israelites from one hostile nation to another, witnessing the ascendency and annihilation of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Greece, and Rome. This midrash is quite consistent with Michael Heiser’s exegesis of Psalm 82, which is explained elsewhere in this series.
Did Jacob merely “dream” that he saw a stairway to heaven, or was it a true vision of an objective reality? Still yet, perhaps it involves some of both? While there is not likely a physical stargate buried at Bethel, we do believe that Jacob was permitted to mystically “see” into objectively existing dimensions outside our normal three, plus one (time), and into the “folded space” or through a wormhole known to modern physicists as the Einstein-Rosen Bridge. As detailed elsewhere in this series, exotic matter is required to create temporary artificial wormholes in most theoretical designs. However, the Creator’s divine essence is all the exotic matter needed to make the already thought plausible designs of theoretical physicist Kip Thorne into tangible realities. That such a fantastic vision is now a scientifically respectable concept does not in any way diminish the miraculous nature of the event. No, theoretical physics is the way our limited human minds must try to scientifically explain the supernatural abilities of God, who transcends time and space!
There is a parallel verse to this in John 1. Bethsaida in Galilee is where Jesus found Andrew, Peter, Philip, James, and John. It is a region on the northeast part of Galilee, very likely close to Capernaum, where Peter lived.
Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. (John 1:44–51, emphasis added)]
This is a most interesting and pivotal point in the life of Nathanael (whose name means “gift of God”). When told by his friend Philip about a man from Nazareth who fit the bill to be their promised Messiah, Nathanael replied with an insult: “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Little Nazareth must have had a low reputation. Today, we might say something like, “You mean that hick place?” Yet, Philip here insisted that lowly Nazareth was the home to the Messiah. How did Jesus respond to Nathanael, knowing full well what the man had said—about the insult? Our wonderful, understanding Lord called Nathanael an Israelite in whom there was no guile—no deceit. An insult was answered by a compliment! Then Jesus proved His divinity by telling Nathanael that He’d seen him underneath the fig tree even before Philip had called to Nathanael.
It’s the equivalent of “I know who you are, and I know what you did.” Nathanael made a complete, mental U-turn and called Jesus “Rabbi” (“Teacher”) and “the Son of God.” In recognition of this, Jesus continued, promising Nathanael that he would “see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.” One might conclude that Nathanael had been praying for a vision while beneath the fig tree, and now Jesus promised him one.
As a first-century Jew from Cana of Galilee, Nathaniel read and studied from the Septuagint version of the Hebrew Scriptures. Like his contemporaries, he was expecting the Messiah based on the prophecies of a coming king who would overthrow Israel’s oppressors. “Because a child was born to us; a son was given to us whose leadership came upon his shoulder; and his name is called ‘Messenger of the Great Council,’ for I will bring peace upon the rulers and health to him” (Isaiah 9:6, LES). The Messenger of the Great Council applied Jacob’s gate to himself when he replied to Nathanael, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man” (John 1:51). Later, he said “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved” (John 10:9). Under the New Covenant, Jesus is a greater gateway to God than the “stairway to heaven” the angels traversed (Genesis 28:12; cf. Hebrew 10:19–20), and wherever Jesus is worshipped as Lord, that place becomes a spiritual “Bethel”—a gateway to God.
Did Nathanael see what Jacob saw—the Einstein-Rosen Bridge that leads to the throne of God? Perhaps not at that time—but one day, he and all those who “see” Jesus for who He really is will stand in His presence and witness the eternal bridge between the heavenly throne room and Israel. In fact, those who return with Christ—His Bride—may use that very bridge as we ascend to enjoy the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and then descend with Him at the end of the Tribulation Period.
Are there other examples in Scripture of the Einstein-Rosen Bridge, commonly called wormholes? Let me ask you two questions: What happened to Enoch and Elijah? And where is Moses buried? If you’re not firmly versed in the Old Testament, you may not have a ready answer, but I’m betting that most of you shouted out the answer in your heads—if not right out loud. We’ll begin with Enoch.
This prophet of the Lord lived before the Great Flood of Noah’s day. In fact, Enoch was Noah’s grandfather. The King James translation of Genesis 5:24 says simply, “Enoch walked with God and was not, for God took him.” Young’s Literal Translation says this: “And Enoch walketh habitually with God, and he is not, for God hath taken him.” Enoch walked with God in the same way that Adam also “walked with God”—habitually, as a friend might walk with a companion. Enoch’s walk has become the benchmark of biblical faith (Hebrews 11:5–6), and his being taken by God without dying earns him the rarified honor of being one of two known humans who in our bestselling book On the Path of the Immortals we legitimately called “immortals.”
Enoch may actually have “seen” the Lord, for Noah clearly “heard” orders from the Lord to build an ark, and Abraham clearly “heard” and even “saw” the Lord, so the one-way Einstein-Rosen Bridge may have opened and allowed Enoch to “walk” with the Lord. Regardless of how this walking relationship occurred, the Hebrew makes it clear that something supernatural did occur when Enoch simply vanished from the earth. He walked, and he was not.
Interestingly, the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts seem to have anticipated what twentieth-century scientific discoveries involving black hole vortices and wormhole portals say they should look like. The Hebrew word laqach usually means “to take, grasp, seize.”[xiv] Its semantic equivalence to the Greek harpazo is provocative because the apostle Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, used it to describe the Rapture of the church: “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds” (1 Thessalonians 4:17a, emphasis added).
The Semitic laqach implies being taken suddenly, perhaps even against your will (i.e., captured), but Strong’s also lists “to flash about as lightning” as a possible meaning.[xv] If Enoch disappeared into a portal, then it’s quite possible—even probable—that the opening of this gateway involved a flash, like lightning. The event horizon of these portals is often characterized by lightning as well as a whirlwind: “The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lighted up the world; the earth trembled and shook (Psalm 77:18). We’re told by Christ that He saw Lucifer fall “like lightning” to the earth. The rip into our time/space dimension from a world outside our continuum would likely create a great deal of lightning due to the enormous energy displacement. Now please recall that we mentioned that Enoch was one of two human beings (not counting Jesus) who can legitimately claim the title of “immortal.”
Out of the Whirlwind
Elijah also walked with the Lord, and he knew in advance that the Lord would be sending for him. As one might expect to see in an astrophysicist-advised science-fiction film, Elijah’s flaming chariot traveled to Heaven through a whirling vortex: “There appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven” (2 Kings 2:11). This imagery of a whirlwind is familiar to anyone living within the Bible Belt of the United States, because we see “whirlwinds” every spring. In fact, the Horn family’s home in Missouri is smack in the middle of tornado alley! Often when God appears to people on earth, the scene is characterized by fire and whirling vortex energy (Ezekiel 1:4; Job 38:1).
The Hebrew term suphah is usually translated as “whirlwind” or “tempest” in English.[xvi] While it commonly denotes a cyclonic wind, the primitive root from which it derives, suph, means “surely snatch” or “surely snatch away,”[xvii] corresponding neatly to the Greek word harpazo used for the Rapture, which also means “to seize, to snatch away, to take away.”[xviii] The same term is also found in the New Testament in 2 Corinthians 12:2 (“caught up to the third heaven”); Revelation 12:5 (“caught up unto God”); and Acts 8:39 (“the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip”)—always describing the miraculous transport of a human by God.
The term suphah usually denotes a natural whirlwind, but it seems to describe a portal in many passages. The boldfaced terms that follow are all rendered from suphah. Apparently, the whirlwind portal is bidirectional, because Yahweh communicated with Job through a similar turbulence: “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind” (Job 38:1). However, whirlwinds are not only connected to heaven but also nightmares: “Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night” (Job 27:20). The same term is also connected to God’s judgment: “Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked” (Jeremiah 23:19) and on the end-time Day of the Lord: “And the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south” (Zechariah 9:14). It can also be translated, the Lord God will sound the trumpet and will march forth in the whirlwinds of the south” (Zechariah 9:14b, ESV). Might it denote a divine portal in the south from which the Lord stages Armageddon?
Our suggestion that ancient prophecy describes, in a “just-so” manner, a vortex-like event horizon (just like one would expect of a traversable wormhole) is at the very least intriguing yet, even more, entails untold prophetic significance in the future. The Book of Enoch speaks of twelve heavenly portals (Enoch 76:1) grouped into four quadrants: North, South, East, and West. Paralleling Zechariah’s prophecy that the Lord will come from the whirlwinds of the South, Enoch explains two of the quadrants: “And the first quarter is called the east, because it is the first: and the second, the south, because the Most High will descend there, yea, there in quite a special sense will He who is blessed forever descend” (Enoch 77:1). Apparently, this descent marks the occasion when the Lord exclaims: “Lift up the gates, those rulers of you. Lift eternal gates, and the King of glory will enter” (Psalm 23:7, LES). Because the Book of Enoch was written at least few hundred years prior to Jesus’ birth, the predicted event is remarkably consistent with Jesus’ predicted end-time descent onto the Mount of Olives in the New Testament (Acts 1:11; Zechariah 14:4).
A section of the book Zenith 2016 called “Summoning the Angel in the Whirlwind” wondered if George W. Bush and other notables were in effect soliciting the opening of these doorways a few years back. Note what I wrote then:
On January 20, 2001, President George W. Bush during his first inaugural address faced the obelisk known as the Washington Monument and twice referred to an angel that “rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.” His reference was credited to Virginia statesman John Page who wrote to Thomas Jefferson after the Declaration of Independence was signed, saying, “We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?”
Five weeks after the inaugural, on Wednesday, February 28, Congressman Major R. Owens of New York stood before the House of Representatives and prayed to the “Angel in the Whirlwind.” He asked the spiritual force to guide the future and fate of the United States. Twenty-eight weeks later (for a total of 33 weeks from the inaugural—a number invaluable to mysticism and occult fraternities), nineteen Islamic terrorists (according to the official story) attacked the United States, hijacking four commercial airliners and crashing two of them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third into the Pentagon, and a fourth, which had been directed toward Washington, DC, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. What happened that day resulted in nearly 3000 immediate deaths, at least two-dozen missing persons, and the stage being set for changes to the existing world order….
Invitation to angels by elected officials combined with passive civilian conformity is key to opening doorways for supernatural agents to engage social governance. This is a classic tenet of demonology. Spirits go where they are invited, whether to possess an individual or to take dominion over a region. One could contend therefore that starting in 2001, the United States became so disposed in following and not challenging unprecedented changes to longstanding U.S. policies including the Christian rules for just war, that a powerful force known to the Illuminati as the “Moriah Conquering Wind,” a.k.a. “the Angel in the Whirlwind” accepted the administration’s invitation and enthroned itself in the nation’s capital. Immediately after, it cast its eyes on the ancient home of the Bab-Illi, Babylon, where the coveted “Gate of the Illi” had opened once before.[xix]
The occult realm seeks always to imitate God’s abilities through magical rituals and esoteric knowledge. Here, the heavenly portal opened only at the will of God Almighty that is called a “whirlwind” in 2 Kings is imitated by fallen angels and corrupt men in a twisted call to action. The Moriah Conquering Wind is the key to opening the Abyss. There is a reason that God prohibits communing with the dead and the fallen—because summoning the whirlwind (that is trying to open the Einstein-Rosen Bridge) from this side will only lead to the opening of Hell itself. It’s like the old story of the lady or the tiger, in which a man is given the choice of two doors. Behind one is a beautiful, voluptuous woman who will fulfill his every desire. Behind the other is a ravenous tiger that will tear him to shreds and devour him.
The Illuminati have foolishly been trying to open the Abyss since the days of Nimrod. Those who do so believe that eternal life and ultimate power and knowledge await them on the other side, but you and I know better. Instead of granting their thirst for power, the entities on the other side of the portal—when opened—will devour them one by one.
And then Hell will enter our space/time continuum.
Now, whenever I bring up the topic of biblical gateways and portals, the first incident most colleagues mention is the Babylon gateway that Nimrod attempted to build. Let’s take a look at the passage that describes this foolish attempt to unseal the Abyss. We find it in Genesis 11:
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. (Genesis 11:1–9)
Assuming they even teach this event, most pastors and Bible study leaders today would either allegorize or at least downplay the clash at Babylon between God and humanity, but this is a disservice to their students. I wrote a series of articles about ten years ago about this very event. Titled “Stargates, Ancient Rituals, and Those Invited through the Portal”, where I built upon the fine research by our dearly departed brother and semiotics genius, David Flynn:
In his seminal opus Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars, Flynn connected Nimrod’s construction of the Tower of Babel to the rebel planet Mars:
Symbolism used by the mystery schools illuminated the writings of Italian poet Dante, who wrote of the connections between the Tower of Babel, Giants, and Mars. Intriguingly, Dante identified Mars with Satan. Paradiso Canto IX:127-142:
Florence, the city founded by Mars, that Satan who first turned his back on his Maker, and from whose envy such great grief has come, coins and spreads that accursed lily flower, that has sent the sheep and lambs astray, since it has made a wolf of the shepherd.
The ancient Cabiri (Gibborim) who built Cyclopean walls and megalithic fortresses took many forms, but they all originated from the same place. They came down from heaven to the earth. According to ancient Sumerian myth, when Nergal the God of Mars was ejected from heaven he descended with…demons….
Thus not only was Nimrod a Nephilim…not only did he design the Tower of Babel (“gate of the Gods”)…not only was he associated with Mars and built the tower of Babel to the rebel prison planet… but he, like other giants, was daimonic (demonic) in origin. The significance of this cannot be overlooked. Babel was a Nephilim gateway and it is prophesied to be the future location from which “gates” open and “giants” return.
The Lord inspired Moses to write about this epic event, and the description and hidden clues offer just enough information to discern many truths about Babel. This was not merely a tower intended to reach heaven due to its height. This was a Stargate, whose design was inspired by forbidden knowledge. Nimrod had deciphered the secret to unlocking a portal—an Einstein-Rosen Bridge that would lead to the heights once envied by Satan: the Sides of the North—the Heavenly Throne.
It must also be noted that Nimrod is the template for a panoply of “dying gods” worshiped under the names Osiris (a play possibly on Asshur, which may be another name for Nimrod, the Assyrian), Heracles, Horus, Tammuz, Mithras, Cernunnos, Marduk, and perhaps even King Arthur. When the languages were confused at the tower, the bewildered builders and terrified citizens, who no doubt believed Nimrod to be a god who would bring more gods to their city and recreate the “golden age” spoken of by their ancestors, took the story and told it with variations upon the names, seeding the legend of the “dying god” throughout all civilizations of the world. All the legends end with a promise that their god(s) would return in the final days and inaugurate a new age.
Nimrod’s Stargate was probably located directly over Enki’s abode, the Abzu (Abyss), said to be a freshwater lake deep within the earth. The Mighty Hunter Nimrod, along with the combined efforts of the “one mind” of mankind, used fallen angel technology and nearly opened the Abyss—but the Lord intervened personally, an extremely rare event, because the Abyss must and will remain closed until the Lord permits it to be opened. And we who live in these days—days that fit the bill for the “last days” read about the modern technology and foolish experiments (CERN, for instance) that may serve as parts of the final “key” to unlocking this hideous hell-hole. The next entry will go into the historical basis for how this all could come to pass.
