“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye seperate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the LORD Almighty !”
II Corinthians 6:17-18
Martial arts are often marketed as a “family activity“. But the truth behind this idea would shock most students and parents, if they Isaiah 9:2 & 6
were told when they signed up! Traditional Asian martial schools were
based on family, or clan secrets of warfare. These secrets were not aloud to be spoken or shared outside the dojo, or home of the master. The survival of the clan, style, or family was dependant on the element of mystery or “secret” techniques; which no one outside the group or school had the ability to counter or eliminate.
Few practitioners realize where the founders of these styles received much of their “inspiration” for their personal fighting techniques and methods. A diligent study will reveal the spiritual influence which these men received, often while in meditation or a trance, worshipping their pagan deities.
When a prospective new student wished to join a school, they would begin by by accepting a family uniform and new white belt. Through submission to their teachers commands, and diligent practice of the forms and techniques he taught; the student would grow in proficiency. As his dedication and loyalty was seen, the Sifu or Sensei would promote the student to a higher level of color in belt or sash.
Sensei = Japanese term which literally means – ‘one born before or twice born’
This on a physical level implies one of age and experience; but on the spiritual level, the original two Japanese characters reveal ‘one who has been before,’ or ‘filled with an ancestral spirit.’ This principle is also Hindu
in origin, i.e Reincarnation.
Grandmaster – 10th dan
High master – 8th dan
Master – 6th dan
Disciple – Black belt through 5th dan
Apprentice – brown or red belt
Initiate – green to blue belt
Novice – white, yellow, orange
Through this hierarchiel system of promotion and ranking, a spirtual structure is being built. One which has it’s foundations in the ancient pagan religions of the world.
Most people in the western hemisphere fail to realize the strong family ties and roles which are prevelant in eastern cultures. A Grandmaster or Founder is known as “Sijo” or “Soke“. This term declares him to be “Head of family” in an art or style.
Even in Biblical times, the head of a family was given supreme respect and obedience, next to none other than Jehovah God. Therefore when a student joins a school, they are taught through instruction and example to yield the highest honour, respect and obedi-ence to the head of their martial family.
Whether the master, Instructor or at the dojo; it
is considered the hightest disrepect to fail to obey any given command or instructions by this man. A failure to comply, even in lifestyle, is frowned upon and often hinders progress in training and rank.
Who is this man at the right ?
and what are the images which surround him ?
Are these symbolic of the powers which grant him his abilities and position? And if it is these which empower him through their instruction and influence, then it is also ‘the Shaolin temple Abbot’
these spiritual entities which are being granted access to
all those who learn and train under his leadership.
We encourage you to do the research, and compare what you find in the practice of these men’s lives with the Sure Word of Almighty God.
The Bible tells us that Jesus (Yehushua) taught His disciples (followers), that we are to call no man Master, Rabbi or Father !
“And be not called Rabbi: for One is your Master, even Christ; and ye are all brethren. And call no man your Father upon the earth: for One is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for One is your Master, even Christ !” Matthew 23:8-12
“For I would have you know, that the Head of every man is Christ (The Anointed
One – Jesus); and the head of the woman is the man; and the Head of Christ is GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) !”
I Corinthians 11:3
The “Head,” represents a covering, protection, and the source of strength ! And as sons and daughters of the Living God, our Head is to be Christ; and His Head, and the Source of His strength is Almighty GOD, the Father of all !
“For I have not spoken of Myself; but The Father which sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak . . . For the Words that I speak unto you . . . are Spirit and they are Life ! . . . I speak not of Myself, but The Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works !” John 12:49-50 & 14:10-12
For how can we call Him Master (Lord), and yet refuse to do those things which He says ? Even in the martial world this is unheard of. For they call them masters, who they consider their covering, and source of their strength. And no student ever progresses in the ranks, while refusing to follow the instructions of his teacher.
“And why call ye Me, Lord (Master), Lord, and do not the things which I say . . . ?”
Going back to the Tower of Babel, we see that the structure of any pyramid or ziggurat is designed to have a wide base, which supports the weight of the system. And as you step higher in the tiers, there is room for fewer and fewer members. The higher you go, the more elite the position; and the more secret the knowledge imparted. Finally, when one reaches the apex, you are considered to have become one with the “universal energy,” (tao) and therefore one with god !
Nimrod at the Tower of Babel (confusion and “the gate of the gods); the Pharaoh of Egypt; the Caesars of ancient Rome; the Grandmasters of every Secret Society, the Sijo and Founders of every martial styles all have shared high positions in this tower reaching unto the heavens. But who is it that sits at the highest peak, and throne of power in this last and final world order ?
Search and find out who the heads of these occult organizations bow, and pay homage to.
And to whom do they all look to as their spiritual leader ?
They are looked upon and often titled as “god-like,” and referred to as gods upon this earth. They attempt to hold power over their fellow men in direct opposition to the comm-andments given by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . Is it any coincidence then that all of these “religious” societies share common symbols and doctrines ?
Once the grandmaster of a system has achieved ‘enlightenment,’ he is then considered “infallible,” and beyond question in the spiritual, as well as physical aspects of his art. He is then taught and instructed by direct revelation from the spirit world; often guised as the spirits of the masters and founders long dead before him (necromancy). His training takes the form of secret kata, meditation and self-awareness in disciplines such as Qigong, Gautama Buddha being
Yoga, Nei-gong, Bagua, Hsing-yi and other esoteric arts. taught by 6 spirits
This level of instruction is revered in the martial arts world, as the path of the
enlightened ones, or Arhat masters.
It is this practice of communication with the spirit world, which the LORD God Almighty (Yehuwah El’ Shaddai) strongly condemns and warns us of in His Word. For we are instructed . . .
“There shall not be found among you any . . . that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter (hypnotists), or a witch. Or a charmer (one who casts spells), or a consulter with familiar (family, ancestor, close) spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and it is because of these abominations (morally disgusting practices), the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before you . . . !” Deuteronomy 18:10-12
At lower levels, every student is fighting for one step higher on the pyramid. This encourages practitioners to view other students as competitors, and not as equals. And the
higher position attained, the stronger the pride grows in his heart.
“Ye know that the princes of the unbelievers exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon those who are weaker. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant !” Matthew 20:20-28
The man and husband is always referred to as the priest of the family, or the “spiritual head.” Our Heavenly Father ordained this family order so that in this way; His Word and Spirit will be given to the husband; he in turn will share the Word of God (Elohim) with his family, in the Spirit of Christ. The grace of Christ will then flow from the Word of God to his wife in love and self-sacrifice, and then from the mother to their children. It is thus that the LORD (Yehuwah) ordained that we show those under our care and responsibility His great love and power.
Whatever the spirit which the Grandmaster or Master is filled with, is then passed down to the diciples and instructors beneath him. From them to the apprentices, the initiates, and finally to the novice. The higher you go, the stronger the hold (stronghold) the spirit has on you; And the more difficult, without the grace and power of Christ Jesus,
it is to leave.
The Shaolin teaches that; once a man achieves the title of Disciple, he is “bound” to his master for life, by a spiritual tie not easily broken. The black sash/belt ceremony is very much like a wedding ceremony. For it is only then that the student can begin his training as a true disciple of the art, under the personal instruction of a Master. The new disciple receives a very special certificate, which bonds him/her to the master in a tie that can be greater than that of most husbands and wives !
So if the Grandmaster is sitting at the top step of the martial pyramid; who or what sits as the “capstone” ?
It is the same spirit that has been at war with the Son of Almighty God, since the fall of Lucifer from heaven.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael (One Who is as Elohim) and His angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not ! Neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: He was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him . . .
And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness, and all manner of disease . . .
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name (Yehushua ha Moshiac, Jesus Christ). And He said unto them, (Why are you surprised)? For I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven! And behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall be any means hurt you !” ref: Matthew 10:1, Luke 10:17-19
“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 (in the heavens, skies) . . .
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God (Jehovah, Yehuwah), so that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand !” Ephesians 6:12
This same spirit or “energy” is known by the Chinese as Dao, or the Tao (Yin/Yang),
and the Force. The names may vary from culture to culture; but the spirit, the symbols , and the character remain the same. We encourage all to seek the Truthin the Word of God as never before !
Warning: The symbols which are being revealed on these pages, are all of occult origin. Their roots can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Babylon. Our purpose in showing them, is so that the reader may ask; Why do these same pagan emblems show up in so many of the world’s pagan religions, martial arts, secret societies, new age/wicca teachings, ‘alternative healing’ clinics and even churches today? What do these organizations have in common? Do they share the same goal ?
“And I heard another voice out of heaven, saying, Come out of her My people, That ye be not partakers of her sins (rebellion against God’s law – I John 3:4), and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God (Yehuwah Elohim) hath remembered her iniquities !” Revelation 18:4-5
The power of symbolism has always been known by the ancient cultures of the world. regardless of country or age, many of the very same symbols have been used, without any loss of meaning for thousands of years. Even in our modern technological age, esoteric symbolism is becoming more prominent and recognizable in many corporate logos, and the entertain-ment industry. Yet we are told that this is only coincidence, and that these symbols are just the work of talented artists, and vivid imaginations !
Why then do we find these same images being used by the New Age, Occult, Ritual magic, wicca, paganism, satanist, Record labels, Hollywood, Publishing houses, Corporate America . . . and Martial artists ?
Symbols have a long history in their use to communicate hidden ideas, from those without “the keys of knowledge.” In the simplest terms, they are a means of identity; speaking directly and yet in the most subtle manner to the minds of men. If you or I were visiting a strange country on business, and we did not speak the language; then we would need some method of identifying our corporate group and place of business. Without a spoken word, as soon as we see a familiar symbol, we know we are in the correct place. Spiritually, a symbol can hold the memories, values, and teachings of an event, or individual. When the symbol is seen, it communicates more than could be revealed in a page of words.
Our Heavenly Father reveals that this will be seen in a most striking manner in these last days of earth’s sinful history. Every man, woman, and child will be required by law to accept or reject the ” mark of the beast “. Each person will accept the seal or mark of whom they choose to yield their lives; of whom they choose to worship and obey as their Ruler and Provider. Thus symbolism connects people, thoughts and belief systems.
In the Chinese martial arts, symbols are of great importance. For they stand for the spiritual powers which lie behind every style and master. In the art of Kung-fu, Karate, Tai-chi and Yoga, these various symbols are used to connect the practitioner to the spirit world. The symbols and emblems are usually worn on the uniform, over the heart, or often upon a cloth around the forehead.
These insignia are explained to the beginner in the most elementary sense only. Reserving further disclosure after the student has proven their dedication. They are led to believe that the symbol stands for “hidden” truth and the moral ethics of their style and it’s Founder.
There is usually a legend of how the style’s Founder was “inspired” (in-spirited) to create the symbol. All this illusion creates within the student a bond and tie to his instructor, as the teacher slowly reveals the secrets of the art. A tie not easily broken; with the school, and with the style, with the instructor, and with all the ancestors of the art. As the student grows in ability and devotion, they are given deeper knowledge about the symbol and the art it represents. The confidence which the instructor places upon the student, coupled with the Certificates of rank, and the imparting of “sacred” knowledge, creates pride and loyalty within each school. Often this fellow-ship is even stronger than the ties of family blood. And in this respect is identical to the bonds formed within the Secret Societies.
Symbols II – More than Meets the Eye
One of the primary ways a symbol is used in eastern mysticism and the occult is as a “Talisman” a means by which to channel an evil spirit. These doorways, or “gates” are drawn, painted, written, carved, and tattooed on the person’s body or property. And as with the business trip to a foreign country, so with these symbols. They stand in the Hindu hexagram &
sight of the spirit world, and the initiated few, as marks of swastika sun symbol
affiliation and “brotherhood”.
These symbols may be displayed on clothing, uniforms, rings and jew-
elry or actually marked on the body; such as the ancient practice of the Shaolin temple of branding the Tiger or Dragon on the forearm of it’s disciples. Whether knowingly or unknowingly, these images and symbols
are markers for the spirits of darkness that their presence is welcomed,
and even desired.
Often we hear people say, “Well, that is not what it means to me !” But
the evil spirits do not care if one knows what they are doing or not. They fight on a legal battlefield; and use every excuse they can to maintain their
rights to influence and control the lives of people who are created in the
image of Almighty God.
– A man and his wife have been married for 5 years. One day, a young woman shows up at the front door of their house. As the wife answers the knock and opens the door, she is surprised to find her husbands ex-girl-friend from college standing there before her. The strange young woman demands to speak alone with her husband. The wife, disturbed, angry and a little scared, calls for her husband; not knowing what to expect, nor why this is transpiring in their lives.
As the man approaches the doorway, the young woman’s eyes light up as she sees his familiar face. The wife then demands to know what right does this strange woman have to come visit their home, and speak to her husband ! “Why we are old friends”
is the woman’s reply.
The wife then reminds the ex-girlfriend, that she and her husband have been happily married for more than 5 years, and that she has no business visiting, nor talking with her
husband . . . FireProof – The Movie
It is then that the stranger makes her claims apparent. “If he has no memories, or attraction to me, then why does he keep my photo in his wallet? and why is my shirt still folded in his dresser drawer? Why does he yet keep a letter I wrote to him when we were together ?”
But there is a great difference between a contract and a Covenant. The first is made between two parties, as an agreement of what each will give to the other on condition of a mutual benefit and return. While the second is an solomn Oath, a Promise which is kept by the power of Christ, through good times and through bad, in sickness and in health, till death does part.
And it is a most powerful illustration of what the LORD has given to us in His Son, a Promise that He will love and defend us; and an Oath that He will save to the uttermost all that come to Him, even unto death.
Legal rights ?
So it is with everyone of us. If we do not believe, and serve their gods then why are we wearing their insignia on our clothes? Why do we have their books and movies and music on our shelves. Why do we have their pictures hanging on our walls ? Why do we live according to the devils lifestyle, and yet claim Harry Potter- Christian ?
to be children of God?
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; Whether of sin(transgression of Jehovah’s law) unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness ?” Romans 6:16 & ref: I John 3:4
“. . . For of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought into bondage !”
II Peter 2:19
“But as ye have yielded your members (bodies) as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity (perversity) unto iniquity, Even so now yield your bodies as servants to righteousness unto holiness ! . . .
For when ye were the slaves of sin, ye were free from righteousness. And what fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end (result) of those things is death. . . . But now, being made free from sin, and being servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end Everlasting Life !” Romans 6:19-22
For whom the Son sets free, is free indeed . . . ! ref: John 8:36
And if these emblems and symbols are used as gates into the spirit world; should we not know what they mean, and what they stand for; before wearing it around our neck or upon our chest? When we trace back the origin of many of these eastern symbols, we soon find that the almost all of them represent in one form or another, the power of the sun, the “sun god,” and sun worship.
Why does this idea show up so often in Pagan religions, Freemasonry, Secret Societies, and in the Martial arts ?
Because all of them trace their roots back to the first great rebel warrior, builder, and “sun-god,” Nimrod ! Genesis 10:8-10 tells us that Nimrod was, ” a mighty hunter before (in place of) Yehuwah .” He was a warrior king of great physical and spiritual power. He sought to dethrone the Only True and Living God (Jehovah, Yehuwah) from the hearts and minds of men. His arrogance and pride were surpassed only by one; the spirit of the dragon who possessed him.
His kingdom began at the building of the “Tower of Babel;” also known to the Babylonians as the “gate to heaven”. This structure was perhaps the first pyramid (ziggurat) the world had ever seen. The stair-stepped tiers climbing, or spiraling upward to the final level, and throne of the pagan demigod.
“And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one (ghib-bore’ – powerful warrior, tyrant, giant, strongman) in the earth. And he was a mighty hunter before* (in the place of) the LORD. And the beginning of kingdom was Babel . . .
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass . . . 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 again abroad upon the face of the whole earth . . .” Genesis 10:8-10 & 11:1-5
Although the sun god has always been recognized as the chief-deity in every ancient pagan culture, he has manifested in many names and forms, but his character remains always unchanged . . . Pride ! selfishness, force, and control.
“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High (Yehuwah Elohim) !” Isaiah 14:13-14
“For Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall . . . !” Proverbs 16:18
“How art thou fallen, O Lucifer . . . For thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchan-dise (trade, peddling) they have filled the midst (heart) of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned ! Therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God (Elohim): and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub , from the midst of the stones of fire.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, and thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness. I will cast thee to the ground, and I will lay thee before kings. That they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries (the chambers of thy mind) by the multitude of thine iniquities . . . Therefore I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
And they that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms !” Isaiah 14:12,16 & Ezekiel 28:15-18
“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven . . . Now is come Salvation (deliver-ance, freedom, rescue, healing, liberty), and Strength, and the Kingdom of our God (Theos – The Almighty ), and the power of His Christ (Anointed One)! . . . For the accuser (ha Satan) of our brethren is cast down which accused them before our God day and night . . .
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time !” Revelation 12:10-12
“Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth. For I Am God (Elohim – The Almighty One), and there is none else! I have sworn by Myself, the Word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto Me every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall swear . . . Wherefore God (Yehuwah, Jehovah) also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name: That at the Name of Jesus (Yehushua – YAH’s Salvation – ref: Psalm 68:4) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord (Yehushua is Adoni – the Sovereign King), to the glory of God The Father !”
Isaiah 45:22-23 & Philippians 2:9-11
Question: Is the world being staged for the coming of a counterfeit reigning king ?
And is it possible that these eastern mystical arts are playing a powerful role in preparing mankind to accept the dragon’s last great deception, which will come upon the world as an overwhelming surprise ?
