From Fanatic For Jesus blog: The Dark Side of the Oak Tree


"The Dark Side of the Oak Tree"

I always wondered why they were slapping trees all over the place, when a tree in the Bible--well the Mustard Tree is not seen as a good thing! Well I guess why wouldn't the birds of the air want to celebrate the tree they are sitting in? One thing this is a parable of Jesus's which is very misunderstood, all the phonies think the mustard tree is something good!

Mat 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

The blogger discusses their use of the oak tree imagery, and why that is:

Boykin's website admits to being part of Billy Graham's Lausanne Movement.[3] This movement, whose goals are similar to that of the U.N. Millennium Development Goals, has expanded worldwide and have taken over the National Day of Prayer. Its goals and language are New Age, and they will likely usher-in the coming New Age [Masonic] christ.[4]

Lt. Gen. Boykin shares the oak tree symbol with another big name in Christian ministry - Rick Warren. On the cover of his Purpose Driven Life, which has sold over 30 million copies, there sits an oak tree.

Ironically, Rick Warren also has connections to the Lausanne Movement. In June 2010, Saddleback Church hosted the Lausanne Global Conversation panel at their church [5]. Additionally, Warren was on the advisory board for the 2010 Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization to be held in October in South Africa.[6]

What Boykin and Warren have in common is that they signed the Lausanne Covenant. It is an ecumenical statement crafted to unify Ecumenical Jews, Evangelicals, Charismatics and Catholics worldwide. Although it is not apparent, it embraces the Emergent Church movement.


The Oak Tree Initiative which is also mentioned in her article seems to be another scary bunch. Some notable members include Boykin, Rick Joyner, Cindy Jacobs--[false NAR pastor], Nicholas F. Papanicolaou who is one of the co-chairs and co-founders of the World Public Forum "Dialogue of Civilizations" [see here],please check for other names too. They are linked to Lausanne and openly support it's covenant on their website. Kind of brings all those Calvary Chapel meetings with Boykin into perspective.

There's a lot of churches sharing in the oak tree imagery...

I knew a pagan who wore oak tree and oak leaf imagery on T-Shirts regularly, when asked about it they said it was pagan and wiccan to do so.

Thank you Bible Believer for the update :)

Well of course. Oak trees were considered ancient oracle trees, and living asherahs to the Mystery Cult adherents of old. Priests would divine by interpreting the movement of its leaves in the wind. It was believed that the oak was a form of the queen of heaven. You know when an injury to a tree or earlier branch fell off, then the bark of the tree tries to grow around the edges of the injury? The pagans believed this appeared to be the tree's "vulva". There's a name for that shape which at the moment escapes me. They believed the tree would give birth to Baal, the new incarnation of the sun god. When this Baal was sacrificed (because he was their perpetual victim), he was impaled upon that tree. If the victim was not a human stand in (believed to be the Baal incarnation once the priest called the god down into him), then they would use an effigy (also believed to become the incarnation once the priest called Baal down into it). The victim's blood (or blood provided for the effigy) would pour down and into the tree's wounds made when impaling the victim onto it. The blood was believed to provide the tree life (it was leafless because of the seasonal change) so that being fertilized it could once again provide "life".

Now here is what is so very important to realize. The Mystery Cult worshipers who infiltrated Christianity in the time of the Apostles saw the symbol of the cross as depicted in the telling of the Gospel as this tree and Jesus Christ as another "perpetual victim". The cross to them was this tree, the queen of heaven. Now most of those who infiltrated weren't purposely being sneaky, but truly believed the Gospel was yet another form of their Mystery Cult (the letters to the Corinthians is full of the rebukes of the heresies these "believers" among them adhered to). When this symbol of a "christ" crucified on a cross (the tree) is displayed by the Mystery Cult--and it is a vital symbol they feel they must display--many people do not realize that they are viewing both Baal and Asherah, Asherah disguised as the cross. BB, I'm sure you are familiar with a picture showing this blatently, but it is a picture of "Mary" holding the "new christ" child in her arms while she is attached to the back of a cross with the "old christ" on the front of the cross dead, and of course the "Mary" is crowned because she is the "queen of heaven". This is one of the most blatant pagan symbols I have seen of it.

This in fact, was the very thing Paul was addressing in this verse from Heb.:

4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, AND PUT HIM TO OPEN SHAME.

Will continue in next post. Anon. #1

This putting "him to open shame" is the display of the "victim". It was the style of the Mystery Cult adherents to display to the public the victim in his shame. It was displaying the dying of the old reincarnation to make way for the new. (And of course the "new" one in the "mass" is the wafer.) Now even though Hebrews was written to Jews, Paul's point was that if they claimed to believe the Gospel, yet continue to offer the sacrifice for sin at the Temple, they were putting Jesus Christ "to open shame"--just like the pagans of the Mystery Cult. Continuing to offer the sacrifice for sin is putting "him to open shame". It is denying the Gospel which says there "is no more offering for sin" (also in Hebrews because Paul was rebuking this). To the Romans, Paul even talks about pulling "christ" down from heaven or "raising him from the dead" (the new "christ"):

6But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

7Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) Rom. 10

Now the church of Rome openly displays this "victim for sin", and the cross is the "tree"--the queen of heaven. But Satan has to continue to place his symbol of the queen of heaven in the NON-CATHOLIC WORLD in a more sly fashion because much of the non-catholic world rejects the image of a "christ" crucified. So Satan's vessels who continue to infiltrate "christianity" must continue to put their "signs" up. The oak tree is one of many of these signs, and when shown just as a tree, it is an oracle. Interesting, too, is the fact that such a tree was used as a symbol for Nebuchadnezzar, king of BABYLON.

The Mystery Cult was born in Shinar, founded by Cain and replanted by those who went back to Shinar after the flood. Since the beginning, it has wanted to overtake the entire world--and it succeeded for a time, until the Gospel arrived to crush it (that was shown by Daniel's figure of gold, silver, bronze, and iron being crushed by the Mountain made without hands). Therefore, Satan and his ministers saw only one way to continue in their evil plan--make the Gospel their own by hiding all of their Mystery Cult within it in open view to all. Only the "initiated" would understand the symbols, see? Which was exactly what the Mystery Cult did when it was pagan. Only initiated ones were told exactly what all of the symbols depicted. This will continue until the Mother Babylon and all her daughter harlots are destroyed with the brightness of the coming of Jesus Christ. She has been a shape shifter since the beginning, keeping the core teaching, changing the names of the gods. In the meantime, we must battle on with the Truth of His Word. Satan is using the forgetfulness of people who have forgotten exactly what the Mystery Cult is to his advantage. There is no excuse in being an undiscerning follower of Jesus Christ since the Revelation makes quite clear that during this the Gospel Age the Whore would grow as an "oak" to fill her branches throughout the world so that every nation would commit fornication with her. Being undiscerning, many who believe they are following Jesus Christ, are actually following another "christ". When the queen of heaven is present, then you KNOW for a certain that they follow another "christ". She is the ABOMINATION that proves ones has been made DESOLATE from the Truth and from the genuine Jesus Christ. Anon. #1

Oh, and another thing, it gives a whole new meaning to "christmas trees", no? And also I wanted to point out that in the letter to the Cornithians, Paul addresses the misunderstanding of the "heretics" concerning the Supper elements, which is exactly why Paul reminded them that Jesus Christ instituted the Supper BEFORE His death, NOT after. Jesus could have easily had instituted it after He was resurrected--after all, He was with them for another forty days after His resurrection. But no, He did NOT institute the Supper AFTER His death, but BEFORE, and for one reason only--BECAUSE OF THE MYSTERY CULT. Paul's explaining this to them was to show them that the Supper elements were not His ACTUAL flesh and blood since He had not YET died when He was instituting it. But they were symbols to "shew" and to remind them that He had indeed remitted sin by His death and that there is no longer in existence a sacrifice for sin. SIN WAS NO LONGER IMPUTED AGAINST THEM, SO THERE WAS NO "PERPETUAL VICTIM". The Supper was a "remembrance" as Paul emphasized, and not an ACTUAL--"Do this in REMEMBRANCE of me".

So when Paul said "let a man examine himself" before partaking of that remembrance, he was referring to making sure that one was not a "heretic" who believed the Supper to be the actual flesh and blood of a perpetual victim.

If one goes a few verses before Paul's description of Jesus Christ's instituting of the Supper, you will see quite clearly Paul saying that "it is NOT the supper of the Lord" which they did, and Paul called these "heretics". How did he know this? Look how Paul addresses the fact of their drunkenness and gluttony at the Supper. Who behaved this way but pagans going to the feast of their perpetual victim who believed the wine they drank to be the actual blood reincarnated of their perpetual victim, and the bread and flesh they ate to be that of the new reincarnation and the old victim respectively. By being drunk and gluttonous they were revealing their unbelief, they were revealing that they had never repented of the Mystery Cult. No true believer thought the wine and bread of the Supper were reincarnations of a perpetual victim--as if Jesus Christ were still remitting sin! This denies the very kernel of the Gospel! Read 1 Cor. 11, starting at verse 18.

There are several other heresies in the letter of the Corinthians which Paul addresses that also demonstrate doctrines of the Mystery Cult, even reincarnation not only in the Supper elements, but he also rebukes it in chapter 15 starting with verse 34.

So very early, even during the time of the Apostles, we see Mystery Cult adherents infiltrating the congregations. Since the Mystery Cult abounded, the threat of the infiltration could not be any higher than at that very time the Apostles were laying the Foundation. Since that time, these heretical beliefs have been with us so long, that they are traditions born of things people have long forgotten. BUT AS TRUE BELIEVERS WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET THEM--THAT'S WHAT THE REVELATION REMINDS US, AND WHY THERE IS A BLESSING FOR BOTH READING AND HEARING IT--THAT BLESSING IS DISCERNMENT! Anon. #1

Yes the oak trees were "holy" to the pagans especially the druids, if you study their history.

Example druid website:

http://www.whitedragon.org.uk/articles/oak.htm

Notice all the pagan beliefs about oaks and how they met for their rituals by oak trees. When I was in the UU, and read New Age and other books, there is a lot of celebration of "trees" [Trees are good things in nature of course but we have the central theme of those who worship the creation instead of the Creator]

Thanks for your history too anon #1, that is interesting about the pagans, seeing it as a marker for the queen of heaven. Those vulvas [YONIS] still show up in the queen of heaven's main religion Rome...

Yes the Mystery Cult worshippers have skewed things, pointed to the "cross" as a tree of sorts, I have encountered that out there.
I rememeber seeing that Mary on the cross too...horrible blasphemy and I have commented before why the harlot always depicts "jesus" as always dead on those crucifixes of theirs.

http://www.wayoflife.org/files/page8_blog_entry81_1.jpg

Read about Eygpt, part of the Mystery Cults and the trees here, with the many names of the queen of heaven appearing--such as Isis.

http://ancientegypt.hypermart.net/treeoflife/
So you are right about that, it is affront to Hebrews 6;6. Who but the devil would want "jesus' displayed ever dead, trying to ignore His resurrection?
Paul was right, that continued sacrifices [which are done on Rome's altars] would be open shame as well.

The Catholic church even calls "jesus', a "perpetual victim" Google that one.
I agree this is definite a sign of Satan's workers, it is yet another symbol for them to mark themselves to the others. All the spiritually blind love the "tree" which Jesus Christ warned against and the vulture in the branches while we know the real deal. The Christmas trees are related to the mystery cults too, part of the pagan worship as well.
Thanks for the remarks on the Supper, that is an interesting way to explain it.

"Perpetual victim", how astonishingly evil and blasphemous.

From the "Catholic's Ready Answer" by Michael Peter Hill:

"It is not Catholic teaching that once Christ died for us we were saved without any cooperation on our part. A free cooperation with the grace of redemption is indispensable. Now, Catholics are taught that in this cooperation we are aided by the sacraments, and that in one of the sacraments Our Lord has found a means of remaining in the midst of His creation, offering Himself as a PERPETUAL VICTIM, and enabling us to cooperate with His redemption by our partaking of the victim from off the altar of sacrifice."

Notice also the false gospel based upon works, that you cannot be saved without works? They deny salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone without works.

A "perpetual victim" is putting Him to an open shame, denying that salvation and payment of sins is finished (John 19:30), and attacking the free gift of salvation.

In this world, while we can trust some friends or a loved spouse, all of us should only trust in Jesus Christ 100%. Handing total trust to any religious leaders especially from what I warn about on this blog and what I have seen, is not a good thing. The good ones will always tell you to test and examine things and will not be offended by such a thing. With me, no benefit of the doubt needed, pray about this blog, and check for yourself on what I write. I'd rather some one think about what I write and examine it for themselves and with God.

Ask God as to the truth to it. Remember saints can judge even the smallest matters.

1Cr 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vesica_piscis"

Yes that is another name for it, the YONI, by the way it occurs in other members of Mystery Babylon, Hinduism, etc.

Yes the perpetual victim is BAAL. When one is born again, and has the leading of the Holy Spirit, they will then know what the Mass really is, that it is total evil.

As noted above, AS ABOVE SO BELOW may be the most powerful phrase/concept in the occult world.
Now some have told me not to study the darkness, but if you don't study the darkness you may not see the truth of the matter when it is right under your nose.

Try going to Joel Osteen's site and you'll find the CRESCENTS that makeup his logo of earth..... or.... is that Saturn? Saturnalia?
Take a look at this church website: http://www.thegroveaz.org/ministries/it-starts-here/
Notice the AS ABOVE SO BELOW tree in the shadows?
Well take a look at the circle with one leaf.
Do you think it resembles this snake encircling Madam Blavatsky's Theosophy logo?

Rick Warren is a Free Mason Occultist and he was mentored by Free Mason Occultist Robert Schuller. It is obvious Rick was a good student. You can bet that Joel Olsteen and the Pastor of the Grove are Occultists of some sort.... NOT simply Emerging.

The CC I attended resisted longer than most, but is now in line with CCCM and Billy Graham, Lausanne, and Rome.
Follow Rome and it leads you to Babylon.
The RCC IS NOT CHRISTIAN. It is a Babylonian cult.
There ARE Christians inside the RCC but that is because some of them read their Bible. They are Christians IN SPITE OF the RCC.
Boykin and Schuller and Billy Graham are leading the Born Again Christians in BABYLONIAN GROVE RELIGION. They are WOLVES.
Seems more than just all the Roads lead to Rome, and beyond.

Yes, the roots could have been shown in the "AS ABOVE SO BELOW" way. As for studying darkness, I believe God has a line He will hold, in showing things. I do not believe one has to delve and go swim in the muck to the deepest depths but the Lord will show you what you need to know. But the whole idea to smile and stay ignorant in the pew is not the right way either. We are warned of spiritual warfare and studying God's Word. It is God's Word when it gets right down to it, the gives on the knowledge as to who is a true teacher or not. Interesting about Joel, guess I would not be surprised there. False gospel from someone who even has had connections in the entertainment world. I see constant occult symbols on church websites. Yes the OAK tree is on there as well. Check out some of my posts were I make clear the MUSTARD TREE is NOT A GOOD THING. http://galatiansfour.blogspot.com/2010/09/mustard-tree-desires-world-power.html I agree with you that many of them are closet occultists, check out on my index, where I have articles listed under Luciferian networks. I agree about CC leading to Babylon, most of the churches are now. I believe if someone becomes a Christian in the RCC, [hey I left within a very very short time] the Holy Spirit will call them out. They must obey. I did know one lady who did not after being born again. Yes all the roads lead to the same place

The Grove website also refers to people as Christ-follers, the emergent church term that replaces Christian.

On the grove site they have something about the butterfly effect - their phase II vision.

Isn't the butterfly effect a new age or Hindu reference to a buttefly causing a prounounced effect somewhere else in the world or something like that? Or a chaos theory?

Bible Believer said...

I do not like the term "christ follower"....though there are a few I agree with on many things who still use the term, I believe it's better avoided.

That website of course I do not agree with AT ALL, and well if they are talking about the butterfly affect, that is pure Hinduism which now is being advanced in American culture as "science" but it is anything but, the whole when a butterfly flaps it's wings in Asia it affects the weather in the USA. Yes it is related to chaos theory.
