This is an article FOR CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS, that was written AND THEN UPDATED July 19th, 2005.

I have decided to update this message due to the volume of e-mail that I have received in the past few weeks, due largely since the release of the Harry Potter movie and a new book in the series.

Surprisingly, most of the e-mail I receive is from Christians, who, after reading this, are filled with more questions.

I thought I would share something the Lord provided in understanding for myself & a fellow believer during our discussions of these books....

If we believe that you have to study evil in order to expose it, if we believe that we have to know how to expose what is there to others so that they can see it, if we believe that we can only expose or reveal evil to others by studying it & comparing it to the truth, the word of God. If we think we have to reason and appeal to the logic of men, in the ways of men...

Then we are deceived, we have no faith,
& we do not trust in God.

I state that emphatically because the Bible states that it is the Holy Spirit that convicts the hearts of men, the bible states that we are born again by the Spirit of God, not through the arguments, reasonings or logic of men. Man can not be "persuaded" to give his heart to the Lord. Otherwise, man gets the glory and there is no spirit, no life.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The NLT says it this way...
For we are not fighting against people made of flesh & blood, but against the evil rulers & authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, & against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.

So you are not wrestling with people or trying to open their eyes to evil or what their life is like without Jesus even... How does one fight an enemy that they can not see with their natural eyes, how does one fight a spirit that is evil that is in celestial places or the heavens?

1 Corinthians 10:3-6
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations, & every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, & bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; & having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Again the NLT says...
1 Corithians 10:3-6 We are human, but we don't wage war with human plans & methods. We use God's mighty weapons, not mere worldly weapons, to knock down the Devil's strongholds. With these weapons we break down every proud argument that keeps people from knowing God. With these weapons we conquer their rebellious ideas, & we teach them to obey Christ. And we will punish those who remained disobedient after the rest of you became loyal & obedient.

It is the same tree in the garden that offered us to learn of evil, to know its ways, its difference compared to good, to try to use it to open eyes, ears and hearts. When in fact, it is useless to us in that manner. We can KNOW the difference between good & evil, but we are powerless in our own human efforts against it.

Our testimony of what God has done for us combined with His word, that He is no respecter of persons, giving freely, that our righteousnesses are as filthy rages (Isaiah 64:6)...
That Jesus did not come to condemn the world that it already is, but that He came to save, to restore that which was/is lost to God (John 3:14-18) etc... the Love of Jesus is what heals, restores and sets people free. The breath of life, being returned to man through Christ (John 20:22)

Jesus said I AM the {only} WAY, the {only} TRUTH & the {only} LIFE, no one comes to the Father except through the Son.

That is why we put on the WHOLE armor of God, so you know who you are in Christ, having the discernment of the Holy Spirit, the armor IS what keeps a believer safe from the wiles of Satan & you have what in your hand?

The Sword of Truth, the same one that is in the Mouth of Christ, He spoke it to us.

Why is it in OUR hands?

Our Hands are to produce the WORKS of the Sword of Truth.

Hands represent works when they are together in the Bible.

That will NOT come about from preaching darkness or knowing its ways, if you know the truth, the truth will set you free.

And WHOM the SON sets free, is free indeed!
The message here is an illustration, Harry Potter and the evil that is woven within the pages of the books, not by a woman, but the darkness that uses people, their lust, desires and materialistic hopes.

The same darkness that uses the word of God, twisting it for his own benefit and manifests through those that have received the seed, just as the children we watch become terrorist when they are adults.

The main Character in these books, Harry Potter seeks to have all the power he can for himself, to set about revenge and vengence.... he will not submit to authority of any kind. God Bless you as you serve Him!
Char :o)

It seems near to impossible to go into any retailer these days without seeing a Harry Potter book, grocers and even candy stores are after the profits through the demand. At least this is the situation I have found in my own town in Canada.

The author of the series, is a woman from England, J.K. Rowling.

I heard a bit of a stir regarding the books on the radio one morning through Freedom Village's Fletcher Brothers broadcast. Shortly thereafter, I read the jacket covers in a local retailer and the Holy Spirit began to lead me.

I was both startled and amazed at what I have found in research since that time. Not wanting to be bias based on other's opinions, I decided to borrow a book from a child and read it, at least that was what I intended.

Within the first three chapters of "Prisoner of Azkaban", I felt the Lord leading me away from reading the entire book to a selection of the book instead. What I recall was the words of a local Pastor, "one does not have to jump out of an airplane without a parachute to experience the free-fall to death to know what will happen..." I recall thinking, I would never expose my child to a pedofile or their practices in order to teach them to stay away from one or what would happen to them as a result of being abducted by one. Nor do I have to experience evil to know to avoid it in all manners or appearances.

That was when scripture was brought to memory by the Holy Spirit from Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent] and when he is old he will not depart from it.( Amplified Bible)

Upon looking into the King James Version Commentary, this is what I found for an explanation; Train up a child. The verb, to train, indicates the first instruction that is given to a child, i.e., his early education. This training is designed to open before the child the manner of life for which he is intended. To commence the child's education in this way is of great importance, for the tree follows the bent of its early years. We are to recognize the gifts that God has placed within a child, nurture and encourage them in those areas with the training of the Word of God.

Here is a small sample from the inside cover; In the inside of every book, there is a "Crest" for the Howart's School written in Latin, is says, "Draco Domiens Nunquam Titillandus". Which when translated says; "never as in ever should you titillate as in to provoke a sleeping or dormant dragon or large serpent". Draco is also the proper name for a formation, a constellation of stars in the heavens, "The Dragon". And to any Christian that has read the book of Revelation, we are told that the Dragon took a third of the heaven with him with his tail. There is far to much "realism" of darkness within these books & she does research all that she uses in the books for realism and effect.

In "The Prisoner of Azkaban", Harry is a verbally & physically abused 13 year old boy. He is orphaned & living with a worldly, dysfunctional family, the "Weasleys", also referred to as "Muggles" or "Mudbloods" as they are "nonmagical people." On pg 21,("HARD COVER" EDITION FOR ALL PAGE REFERENCES) Harry resorts to using blackmail in attempts to get what he wants, returning evil for evil with his Uncle Vernon. When Harry is in a rough spot, he thinks about wizardry as a way out of it, but at the same time, he will be entering into year 4 and doesn't want to blow it. (Pg 25) Harry becomes enraged when the death of his parents and the bloodline is discussed, again, the desire for witchcraft rises in him.

In the ending of the book, magic is the answer where violence and murder were desired but, could not be achieved successfully. Throughout the book there is a clear picture of the counterfeit to God's Kingdom, which is based for example on order, law, righteousness and humility. From what I have read in this book regarding Harry Potter, there is chaos, a constant struggle for power, the desire for destruction and the resorting to darkness for that power.

Here are a few disturbing quotes from the book; Pg 249 "The taunt about his father (Harry's from Sirius Black) rang in Harry's ears as though Black had bellowed it. A boiling hate erupted in Harry's chest, leaving no place for fear. For the first time in his life, he wanted his wand back in his hand, not to defend himself, but to attack... to kill."

"All Harry knew was that he wanted to hurt Black as badly as he could and that he didn't care how much he got hurt in return..."

Pg. 251 "Black made a startled movement that almost dislodged Crookshanks (Cat); Harry gripped his wand convulsively Do it now! said a voice in his head but the footsteps were thundering up the stairs and Harry still hadn't done it."

Pg 256 "I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for..." Siruis Black regarding Peter Pettigrew a wizard he was to have killed 12 years ago.

Pg 259 "Finally, in our fifth year, they managed it (Black, Peter & James Harry's father). They could each turn into a different animal at will." Assuming from what Rowling has stated in recent interviews and that her books are referred to as "Year One, Year Two" etc... is Year 5 going to be when Harry discovers this level of magic?

Pg 260 "But I always managed to forget my guilty feelings everytime we sat down to plan our next month's adventure. And I haven't changed..." Stated by Remus AKA Lupin who is also a werewolf.

Pg 264 "Black stopped dead. It would have been impossible to say which face showed more hatred." "Vengence is sweet, Snape breathed at Black."

Pg 270 "You knew Sirius was going to break out of Azkaban? Said Lupin, his brow furrowed. When nobody has ever done it before? He's got dark powers the rest of us can only dream of! Pettigrew shouted shrilly. How else did he get out of there? I suppose He Who Must Not Be Named taught him a few tricks!"

Pg 273 "Shall we kill him together? Yes, I think so said Lupin grimly." Black & Lupin regarding the newly transformed Peter from Scabbers the rat.

Pg.280 "Expecto patronum!" Is repeated over and over by Harry to ward off the Dementors, a magical chanting. (Dementors suck the life/soul out of a person)

Pg 311 "Professor Dumbledore yesterday, when I was having my Divination exam, Professor Trelawney went very very strange. Indeed? said Dumbledore. Er stranger than usual, you mean? Yes her voice went all deep and her eyes rolled and she said... she said Voldemort's servant was going to set out to return to him before midnight... she said the servant would help him to come back to power. Harry stared up at Dumbledore. And then she sort of became normal again, and she couldn't remember anything she'd said. Was it was she making a real prediction?"

"The consequences of our actions are always so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed... Professor Trelawaney, bless her, is living proof of that."

"This is magic at its deepest, its most impenetrable, Harry."

Here is a quote that I found disturbing from one of the other Harry Potter books in the series: "He is with me wherever I go." (Said Quirrell, referring to the murderous wizard Voldemort.) "I met him when I traveled around the world. A foolish young man I was then, full of ridiculous ideas about good and evil. Lord Voldemort showed me how wrong I was. There is no good and evil, there is only power and those to weak to seek it... Since then, I have served him faithfully."

We seem to think that Satan runs around in red tights, pitch fork in one hand, pointy little beard, horns and a tail... we are not to underestimate him according to the word, he is the most "subtle" of creatures.

In a transcript from an interview with the author, J. K. Rowling, she stated that the final 3 books will not be for children, as Harry will be 15 in the next aging to 17 in the final Year 7 Book. The books will be darker and based more towards and adult audience. But, consider the millions of children waiting for the next installment, the parents that might discover that the books are not for the 10 year old Jimmy, patient but anxiously awaiting his next fix. What do you think will be the result?

Consider this as well. When most of us were children and very impressionable, parents would tell us to get off to bed on Dec. 24th, and that Santa can't come until we did. Then there are presents as evidence of his visit during the sleeping hours, the missing cookies and milk, thereby re-enforcing the fantasy. Also the cartoons, advertisements, and the Jolly fella in a red suit in the local mall etc.... A child's faith is re-enforced repeatedly, through their trust in us as parents. This is likened to the Tooth-fairy, and the Easter Bunny as well.

Harry Potter was released November 16th, 2001, with a 45 million dollar budget for the special effects. The video games, the Witch & Magic trading cards, Character dolls etc... are on the shelves. The lightning bolt, purple tattoos for the forehead are already available. This is a re-enforcing of what is written in the books. Some parents that took there children out of school for the premier said they "called the school stating their child was sick" so they could skip school & go.

Many people, Christians as well, have made comparance & reference to the works of C.S. Lewis, infact, Rowling herself states she is a Lewis fan. There is a huge difference in the body of work between C.S. Lewis & Rowling, Lewis managed to weave Biblical principals, teachings from the word of God into his books. Rowling does not. Lewis did NOT glorify magic or witchcraft, Rowling does, as in power to beheld by the believer.

I could go on and on with quotes etc... I have enough to fill a 2 inch binder from non-Christian sites. One such article contains this quote from a Witches group, that stated and answered this question, "does Harry Potter use magic? Yes he does."

There are those who will compare the works of Rowling to C. S. Lewis, looking for a difference or similarity, you can find what you look for. Simply, C. S. Lewis did not glorify magic or evil in his writings, nor did he go to the extent of the research to USE ACTUAL WITCHCRAFT PRACTICES in his books, he wrote from the Christian perspective in a child's understanding of the power of good over evil. Also, weaving BIBLICAL PRINCIPALS within his writings and work. The same can NOT be said for the writings or works of Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter Series.

When I have been asked, I personally do not own any of the C.S. Lewis books for children and probably never will, the Bible has enough stories to excite and keep a child on the edge of their seat.

Would or did C. S. Lewis pose with a demonic statue for publicity?

J.K Rowling was pictured in Time Magazine and this same picture is apparently on one of the jackets of one of her books, with a demonic statue and a mirrored sun on the wall in the background. Some will defend this picture stating it has been staged for publicity purposes, but I ask you what are the chances of the symbolic representation of each of these articles and the body language? Rowling has her right arm around the demonic statue with right hand over her heart, symbolic for a pledge of allegiance. And considering the meaning of the tarot card that is represented by the mirrored sun wall decoration, it stands for creativity and she just happens to be a "fictional writer"?
There are far to many "coincidences" that can not be ignored.

(Sept. 20th 1999 Issue Time)

Yet there are many who believe good and evil are portrayed in the works of Rowling, good triumphing in the end. Personally, when you use evil to defeat evil, there is no good that can come of it, nor can it just be over looked.

I heard a wonderful story that was apparently true sometime back that I believe will make my point here...

There was a man whose children approached him regarding a movie in the theater that was playing, they wanted to go in the worst way. It was awesome they told their father, the best special effects, there was no budget in that department, it was like no other movie before and no one actually has sex in the movie, they just talked about it a lot and some fondling and not a lot of nudity. And ya, they only took the Lord's name in vain about 3 times through the whole movie, and it was usually when there was a big explosion, so you couldn't really hear it that well. And they knew that when people were shot and blown apart, even when it was a horrible scene of violence that it wasn't really real, it was just a movie, but, everyone they knew was going, so they told their father all this and asked, well dad, can we go?

He simply said, "No."

The next day, the children came home from school and their father had done some baking. He called them all into the kitchen and had them sit around the table. Then he placed a large plate of brownies in front of them. And began something like this...

This recipe is so old, been handed down generation after generation and it has won more blue ribbons at county fairs and baking contests around the world, it is AWESOME!! I didn't spare a penny on the expenses, the best baker's chocolate, the best walnuts, hand cracked and separated, the richest cocoa money can buy and farm fresh eggs, I even lifted the hens off the nest myself and you will not find one piece of a shell in them anywhere.

There is however one thing you should be aware of....

I went in the back yard and scooped up one heaping tablespoon of fresh dog poop and mixed it into the recipe. I assure you it was the freshest I could find in the yard. BUT!! you can not taste it, smell it, or see it. I blended it carefully for a long time and you can just pretend it isn't even their, over look that one little ingredient, because this is the best recipe for brownies, they look like the best and if you just ignore what you know, there isn't enough poop to really harm you, don't you think?

Harry Potter books represent this same message... no matter how you try to hide the poop, or cover it over with whatever "good" one might think is there.... the poop is still there and it stinks to anyone with a nose.

During a recent fast, the Lord spoke something to me in the gathering of this research. We do not have to study, analyze or try to determine just how much evil or darkness is in any movie, book etc... or even try to prove it. If God truly wanted us to allow our children to be exposed to books, movies, etc... that contain things that God considers evil or an abomination, He would have told Adam and Eve to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil instead of trying to keep them from it. God's word stands were we error. Yes, there is evil everywhere in the world, but it doesn't mean we partake of it or allow it in our homes. Many children today are totally desensitized to pornography, violence, etc... and these books are a further sliming of desensitizing towards evil.

Clearly, we do not, nor do I believe that God wants us to expose our children to evil so they will know what it is. I believe that they are to be sheltered from all forms of evil, to have an awareness that it exists and in the forms that God outlines according to the word. As parents we can do our best with God's word to keep them from evil until they understand scripture and hear directly from the Holy Spirit in their own walk with the Lord, and trust God for the rest. Adam and Eve were in the garden with the evil presence there as well, but they were not to partake of it, as we are not to partake of the evil around us today, all forms, mannerisms or appearances.

Spiritual Doors

In the Book of Genesis 4:7 "If you had done the right thing, you would be smiling; but because you have done evil, sin is crouching at your door. It wants to rule you, but you must overcome it."
God is instructing Cain, and now he has a choice to make, sin is at the door... he chose to kill his brother, and was ruled and marked by that sin all of his days.

In the Book of Judges, Chapter 19, the woman had played the Whore [Harlot] in Chapter 1 on her husband and then ran from her sin, and in Verse 27 And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold.
She falls down dead, with her hands upon the threshold [Lower Post]... she opened that door to sin, a sin that resulted in her life being taken that night, she had committed the sin of adultry and then ran from her sin.

In Exodus, the Lambs blood is on the top beam of the door [Lintel] and on the door posts [Side Posts]...
Exodus 12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
The destroyer came through the doors that did not have the sacrificial lamb's blood on the three posts.

In Revelation 3:20, Jesus stands at the door and knocks...
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

How does all this, especially the "doors" mentioned here apply to Harry Potter and our children... it actually goes far further.

What is one of the first things that happens to babies when they become mobile? Yep, they are getting into everything! They can drink bleach and not even taste it... they can grab hot kettle wires because it was in their reach... they can play in a seemingly safe room, where what you see with your eyes appears to be safe, yet they open dressers and have them fall on top of them, and the scary part, it only takes a second for disaster.

That is one reason that we buy those neat little plastic door handle covers, that also drive husbands and grandparents bonkers trying to open them. Point is, we want to keep our children from opening doors that could hurt them. It is not the doors that could hurt them, but what is on the other side of those doors.

When they are older, we remove those obsticles and allow them access to the room through that door, they have the freedom to move about, because they have been taught how to be, do, etc... the way they should go. They were KEPT from the harm, not educated, "this is bleach baby, don't drink it, but mommy is going to leave it within your reach."

We keep things that are harmful away from them, we don't teach them about all the bad things, we instill in them good or correct behaviour when they are little and then as they are older, they learn what they are able to understand at that age, maturity and station in life to know how to make correct choices. When they are little, we feed them with bottles or breast milk, then we give them plastic forks, spoons and knives to eat their mush with, progressing to plastic handled knives, spoons and forks with metal tips and more solid food... gradually, thye begin to choose their own foods, one utensils to the point of even cooking with pots, pans, stoves etc...

When Eve reached for a piece of fruit, it was with two hands, one to reach and partake of the fruit, one to pass it on to her husband...

In each of the verses supplied here, it is OUR hands, the works of OUR flesh, the choices that we make that open doors that should sometimes stay closed and locked.

We should leave those doors closed, teach a child the way they should go and when they are old, they will not depart from it Proverb 22:6 and I believe that the Holy Spirit will keep them, teach them etc... to avoid evil when they are older. We do not have to teach them or expose them to evil so they will know to avoid it or stay away from it. They will know what it is when it is compared to righteousness! If they are raised with Jesus, to recognize Him, the evil hasn't got a chance. Jesus was raised the way that He was to go... He was both man & God, flesh and spirit.

Adam and Eve ate of the fruit to KNOW what was good and what was evil and it was death to them.

Train them up to serve God, and they will and they will not depart from Him, teach them who He is when they are little, introduce them to Him when they are little and they will not depart from Him when their are old.

That is the way they are to go and we are to shield them, protect them as much as humanly possible and cover them in prayer. And trust God. They are not ours, we are only stewards over their lives... for all things return unto God.

On our own, we are not able to discern evil from good or righteousness, Adam and Eve are proof of that and they walked in the presence of God. God's word also instructs us in Proverbs 3:5 & 6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Throughout the Book of Judges we are reminded, there was "no King in the Land", every man did what was right in their own site, their own understanding. We have a King in the Land and if we rely on what we see as right and wrong, we are flawed. Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right unto a man, but its end is the way of death.

Even when the woman who fell down dead with her hands upon the threshold had died as a result of being raped by the men of the city all night, her husband stepped through THAT door... what happened? It continued to the point where an entire tribe was almost exterminated. Why? Because of a woman who opened a door, allowing sin to rule her... that is why the host that took them in, threw her out to the men, not the virgin daughter, not the Levite man, the sin at the door was only entitled to what had opened the door in the first place, the Levite's Concubine [wife] according to her sin. Exactly what happened to all mankind, sin entered in through one hand and had entitlement through death to all mankind. Until the cross.

We are told about doors when the Lord addresses the Church of Philadelphia, the church of brotherly love, in
Revelation 3:7 "To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: "This is the message from the one who is holy and true. He has the key that belonged to David, and when he opens a door, no one can close it, and when he closes it, no one can open it.
Once we have opened a door to sin, it will rule us, unless we are cleansed by the Sacrificial Blood of the Lamb,
Jesus Christ, then that door is closed by God.

All one must do is take a good look around them to see that this generation is seeking an encounter with the supernatural. We have 1-900 numbers for psychic hotlines, tarot card readers are not only hanging out their shingles, they too have the telephone service available. There are palm readers, horoscopes etc... everywhere today. These are all the counterfeit to God and an encounter of the Godly kind. Thus, we have many accepting the works of fiction that depict the works of darkness through the excitement and adrenaline rush which can open a door that only God can close.

I can speak from experience on this matter, Jesus took me from that darkness almost 4 years ago now. I was involved in the occult, placing my faith in darkness believing it was good and that I was some how doing the will of God, yet I never asked Him, never read His word to me.

I was exposed to it as a child with family stories of a "seer" in our family, a glass stone, scrying, and mystic understandings and a Ouija board as a toy. So it came quite natural to follow, and be praised for picking up a deck of tarot cards, reading a palm, an aura or just sharing the knowledge of darkness with others. The adrenaline rush at times would almost choke my words, with my hands shaking, it was like a conformation for the other person of the power that I possessed. But, it was not true power, it was in control of me more than I understood at the time. I was addicted to hashish, pot and had outburst of rage with anyone that opposed. I called myself a "white witch" but, as we know, there is no color to witchcraft other than a shade of the darkest darkness. Just as there is no color to a lie.

I lost everything when I walked away from it all, I lost my husband & children through a series of events, beyond my control, they left me... and I don't blame them.

I had opened a door to darkness, was a in bondage to sin, serving that darkness in ignorance until I tried to leave. Then the hedge of protection was lifted by God and I was vaunerable, but only to the point that God would allow, for His mercies are great! I thank God for what He did at that point in my life, even though it was tough and lonely many times, it was some of my darkest days, which eventually brought me to Him. And based on my sin, what I was doing and the choices I had made, I also did have the word in those days, but did not know Him, it was all for the glory of the Lord.

God has since healed those past relationships, as well as my own pain and giving of understanding. Praise the Lord!

All of that is behind me now, healed and to Jesus be all the praise. I serve the most High God, the one true God, I believe that all I have been through is now for the glory of God. And to help others to see the true light and be found by Jesus Christ.

We have been given a measure by God...
Isaiah 49:22 Thus says the Lord God: "Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations, and set up My standard for the peoples; they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders; (23) Kings shall be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers; they shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the Lord, for they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me."

Lastly, in 1 Thessalonians 5, we are given much instruction as what is required in a Christian
walking in the world and awaiting the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In verse 21 Test all things; hold fast to that which is good.

What is that measure by which we are to test all things
& know which is good to hold fast too?

And in verse 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
What is the appearance of evil or every form of evil to be determined by or according to?
If you take a look at that word, appearances in the Greek language it covers;
with the eyes what you behold, what you decern according to the Holy Spirit
& what you see or behold in regards to scripture.

That measure and good to hold fast to is Jesus Christ, the Word that became flesh.

I would simply ask, would Jesus read any one of the Harry Potter books to a child?
And what would be gained?

Making Evil Look Innocent

I was given a link to this site, I am not sure how long this article would be up on the site, so I have copied it here to ensure it would stand for as long as possible.

The Site of the article is from "The Cutting Edge"


In NEWS1377, we demonstrated that Harry Potter books reveal a very sophisticated high level of witchcraft, probably the highest possible since he had achieved the Sorcerer's Stone. Now we shall examine two different occult symbols for Antichrist on two Harry Potter books.

The New World Order is coming! Are you ready? Once you understand what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, you will be able to see it progressing in your daily news!!

Learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones!

Stand by for insights so startling you will never look at the news the same way again.


In NEWS1377, we proved that the Harry Potter series of books teaches children the highest level of witchcraft attainable; we know this to be true because Harry has achieved the Sorcerer's Stone, representative of the Fifth and final level of Transmutation of the Soul. At this level, a witch can communicate with the dead at will, can command demons with ease, and can perform astral travel. Your children are learning this extremely high level of witchcraft, if you are letting them read these books.

Since the world stands at the brink of the appearance of Antichrist, we theorized that the time might be ripe to move America into the final stages of the values and attitudes that would be able to accept him when he arose. After all, the parents of today's children drank their fill of the Black Magick Witchcraft of the Rock Music culture of the 1970's-1990's. They probably would have no trouble with the Satanism taught in these Harry Potter books. Antichrist can appear, and Harry Potter might just be instrumental in preparing the children of the world for him.

If this is the case, we should see overt evidence of Antichrist in the symbolism of Harry Potter books.

When we examine his books for symbols of Antichrist -- low and behold -- we see that Harry Potter symbols on the book cover of two of the books overtly symbolizes the Antichrist, and his source of power, Satan, as symbolized by the serpent.

This is the book cover of the book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Notice that Harry Potter is flying into the Hogwart School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on a witches broom, with his lightening bolt between his eyes very visible. Notice behind him, frolicking on the grass below and behind Harry, is the Unicorn.

I was extremely startled to see a Unicorn, because it is a commonly used occult symbol for Antichrist. Listen to several authorities on this subject.

God declares in Daniel, chapter 8, that the symbol of Alexander the Great shall be a unicorn. Bible scholars have long maintained that the speed and ease with which Alexander conquered the known world is symbolic of the way the Antichrist of the End of the Age will conquer the world. The terminology used to describe Alexander is exceedingly close to that used to describe Antichrist. Further, in chapter 8, verse 19, God tells us that "Behold, I will make you know what will be in the latter time, for it has to do with the time of the end". [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

In Daniel 8:5, God gives us the following description of the symbol of Alexander the Great. "As I was considering, behold, a he-goat [the king of Greece] came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground, and the goat had a conspicuous and remarkable horn between his eyes." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

Thus, Bible scholars have known for a long, long time that one of the symbols assigned to Antichrist is the Unicorn. Therefore, we should have no difficulty realizing that the occult, Satanic world has depicted Antichrist as a Unicorn!


We first need to understand how important symbolism is to the occultist.

"What is a magical symbol? The true magic symbol is an image which hides an inner meaning. This meaning is usually cunningly hidden behind a form which most people [only] think they can understand immediately." [Frederick Goodman, Magic Symbols, p. 6; Note, this book was purchased in an occult book store]

"The symbols serve both as a form of universal language and as a device for helping to reinforce an altered or trance-like state of consciousness. When one sees the familiar symbol, he usually can be certain he has found a kindred spirit. Since he was taught in his meditation classes to respond emotionally to certain symbols, when he again sees them, a conditioned response is reactivated. One former New Ager described it this way: 'Satan had his key in my lock!' Former New Agers have told me that they still experience feelings associated with altered or trance-like states of consciousness." [Constance Cumbey, A Planned Deception: The Staging of a New Age 'Messiah', p. 65; Emphasis added]

'Satan had his key in my lock!'

Is this the reaction you want your child to have when he or she sees these symbols of Antichrist in Harry Potter? Do you want Satan to have his key in their lock? We are very close to understanding the reason so many people will rush after Antichrist -- to adore him, worship him, and serve him; and, when the False Prophet demands they take the Mark of the Beast, they will gladly do so, because 'Satan had his key in my lock!'

Christian author, Constance Cumbey, writes that certain symbols were to be particularly effective in preparing the world for the Antichrist. She writes, "New Age symbols such as the rainbow, Pegasus, the unicorn, the all-seeing-eye of Freemasonry, and triple-sixes [666] were to be increasingly displayed." [Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 122]


"The unicorn here is once again a symbol of transformation, for this unicorn seeks a better world... through the purifying, purgative powers of destruction. Its purpose, like that of the Hindu god Siva, or Shiva, is to tear down and to renew." [Nancy Hathaway, The Unicorn, p. 161, an occult author]

"In both European and Oriental traditions, the Unicorn is identified with a Messiah who comes when the world is in danger and who heralds the coming of a new and better age." [The Living Unicorn, Carver, Minnesota, The Living Unicorn, Inc., 1980, p. 3, as quoted by Burns, p. 145]

"Thus we see that the unicorn is, in reality, the symbol of a future conqueror who will bring peace to the earth. Who is this but the Antichrist ... for whom the world waits, unaware of his true nature? [Dr. Cathy Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 144]

"The horn growing out of the unicorn's head represents the third eye or the all-seeing eye ..." [Ibid., p. 5] This tells us the truly Satanic symbol of the Unicorn, when its horn is stated to be the Third Eye or All-Seeing Eye, both of which are tightly tied to the worship of Lucifer in the original Egyptian Mysteries Religion.

"In Celtic mythology and European folklore, a fabulous beast [comes] in the form of a horse, with a single spiraling horn growing from the center of its brow. In alchemy, [it is] a symbol of the complete mastery of phallic sexuality by ritual intercourse and its conversion into the forces of pure visualization." [Maurice Bessey, A Pictorial History of Magic and the Supernatural,-- occult author -- p. 128, quoted by Burns, p. 145]

Wonderful! Do you want your child to subliminally be conditioned to the horn of the unicorn as a phallic symbol of intercourse? Of course not, but then you are probably not a pagan, who worships sex.

"... the Rothschilds have a unicorn on their coat-of-arms." [Burns, p. 145] Now, we know the Unicorn is a major Illuminist symbol, and a symbol of their future Superman, the New Age Christ [Antichrist].

Thus, when J.K. Rowling placed the Unicorn on the front cover of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, she knew exactly what she was doing; she was further conditioning your children so they would have "Satan's key in their lock"! But, why should we be surprised? She has created a series of books that teach young children the highest possible type of witchcraft, the kind that allows them to achieve the "Sorcerer's Stone".

But, now take another look at thibook coverer for the Sorcerer's Stone. Notice that Harry Potter is flying between two columns that are simply crawling with serpents coiled amongst each other. Jesus told us in no uncertain terms that the serpent is a symbol for Satan. "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan ..." [Revelation 12:9; See also 20:2]

Therefore, we know that Rowling is attempting to tell your young children that the power of the Unicorn [Antichrist] is derived from the roiling serpents on the columns to the entrance of Hogwart's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft.

Looking further at this book cover, we see three extremely evil-looking demons underneath the school, with snarling teeth. You can just feel the demonic power!


In the book cover for Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets, we see a frantic Harry Potter grabbing on to the tail of a red Phoenix Bird, as he is apparently falling and dropping his sword. Beneath and behind poor Harry are snakes, including a lot of snakes inside the chamber itself. The columns of roiling serpents are visible to the right and to the left of Harry.

The Phoenix Bird is one of the oldest occult symbols in the world, having been invented in the Egyptian Satanic Mysteries. Occultists believe that only one of these magnificent birds lives at any one time, and lives to be about 500 years old. Then, it self-immolates and its body is reduced to ashes; however, a new Phoenix Bird immediately arises out of these ashes, to live another 500 years [Manly P. Hall, The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy, as quoted by Dr. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 121]

The Illuminati early on began using this symbol to represent their planned superman, Antichrist. With this in mind, I find it highly interesting that this occultic legend, the Phoenix Bird, shares several things with the true story of the birth, life, and ministry of Jesus Christ. Let us quickly review these common points:

1) The Phoenix Bird lives in a nest of frankincense. In Luke 2:11-12, we see that the three Wise Men -- Magi -- brought Jesus myrrh and frankincense. Each of these substances has a distinct meaning in the ministry of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The "frankincense [indicates] Christ's priestly intercession" for mankind, according to the Defender's Bible Commentary. Therefore, to say that the Phoenix Bird lives in a nest containing frankincense portrays a Messiah type ministry for mankind, one that involves spiritual "intercession".

2) The Phoenix Bird also has myrrh in his nest. "Myrrh [indicates] Christ's coming death" for all mankind, so people can be Justified before God the Father on the basis of Jesus' sacrificial death on the Cross. [Ibid.] Once again, we see that the Phoenix Bird legend carries another Messianic type ministry, a false one to be sure.

3) We see that, after his death, the Phoenix Bird arises to live anew. Thus, the Phoenix portrays a third Messianic type ministry, in that it arose again.

Therefore, this legend parallels Jesus' true life and ministry in three critically important areas, in His Spiritual Intercession, His Substitutionary Death for all mankind, and His Resurrection.

This is the reason the Masters of the Illuminati seized upon the Phoenix Bird as one of their symbols of the coming New World Order of Antichrist. Do not ever forget that this goal is paramount for the New World Order. They plan on staging the False Christ, whom we will know is Antichrist. Thus, the symbol of the Phoenix Bird perfectly fulfills their plan and can perfectly serve as the symbol of that Man of Perdition.


"All symbols have their origin in something tangible, and the Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world, and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or re-born. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again ." [Hall, Ibid.; Emphasis added]

Isn't this amazing? The Phoenix Bird legend now has a fourth Messianic type connotation; it represents a man being "born again". Always remember that most pagan groups, especially the most sophisticated ones, have deliberately created the myth that their members are "born again". Even Roman Catholicism teaches that its members become born again, usually at Baptism.


Let us now hear more about the occult belief in the Phoenix Bird, from a former witch.

"The Phoenix ... is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt ... This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who they think will one day rise triumphant. This, of course, also relates to the rising of Hiram Abiff, the Masonic 'christ'." [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated , p. 123]

Lest you think this tie-in of the Phoenix Bird to Lucifer is one occultist's imagination, listen to Barbara Walker, a radical feminist. She says that the Egyptians and Phoenicians believed that the Phoenix Bird was the representation of a god who "rose to heaven in the form of a morning star, like Lucifer, after his fire-immolation of death and rebirth ..." [Walker, Now Is The Dawning ", p. 281]

Another Masonic author revealed that the Sun God, who created all other gods, was symbolized by the Phoenix. [Joseph Fort Newton, The Builders: A Story and Study of Masonry, The Torch Press, 1914, p. 13-14; also J.S.M. Ward, The Hung Society or the Society of Heaven and Earth , The Baskerville, Press, Ltd., 1925, p. 44 and 102]

During most of 1999, Hillary Clinton and several female members of the President's Cabinet and White House staff were seen suddenly sported a very expensive broach depicting a Phoenix Bird in gold sitting atop a white ball symbolizing the earth, with her talons dug in deeply. We believe this is a sign to all occultists that the staged appearance of Antichrist is very close, and might even mean it will occur within Bill Clinton's Presidential reign. [Read NEWS1259, "Hillary Wears Illuminist Pin -- Proof For Your Loved Ones -- Clinton's Fatal Leadership Part 6H"]


Just as kids are being conditioned to accept the symbol of the Unicorn, they are being conditioned to accept the symbol of the Phoenix Bird, both of which are direct representations of the Antichrist.

I feel the need to finish with the quote we studied earlier, about how a person's consciousness can be raised sufficiently so that, when confronted with a symbol he had earlier seen, he will feel a strange need to go to that symbol again; he will strange feelings of belonging and of wanting to submit, all through the psychological impact of symbols. Listen to what a former New Age occultist said about her reaction to symbols:

'Satan had his key in my lock!'

Does Satan have his key in the lock to your child's heart? Henry Potter books are so overtly Satanic they are designed to quickly put Satan's key in the lock of your children's hearts!

Truly, the overwhelming popularity of occult books like Henry Potter, plus all the occult themes in TV and movies, tell us that the necessary pre-conditioning of the population has reached the point where Antichrist can arise. Truly, the End of the Age is upon us.

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
