2012 London Olympics: what did they hide from us?

Raising a fist in the face of God!

I’ve hesitated to write about what I perceived in the London Olympics opening and closing ceremonies. I didn’t want to join a chorus of nit-picking just for the sake of it, feeling there’s nothing to be gained from pointing out that people in the world who are riddled with mistaken spiritual attitudes are inevitably going to create something contrary to biblical truth as a matter of course.

While identifying significant pagan and mythological themes in the ceremonies (as well as subliminal socialist propaganda) I maintained my attitude throughout the Games until I chanced to watch the closing ceremony.

Apart from it being tedious to see the parade of British rock groups trying to perform in tune, I found it stuffed with references to the glorious human race being able to wave its fist in the face of God and shout “who needs YOU?”

I reached a point of deep sadness towards the end, watching the blatant self-adulation of so many thousands, proclaiming themselves in song “rulers of the world” as they saw a blazing phoenix rise from the many-petalled fire of the olympic flame.

From this fire-born phoenix the “spirit of the flame” descended into the mortal realm mimicking as closely as possible the crucifixion without overplaying this parody of the redemption.

And hidden in the heart of that phoenix, was a horned devil! It was a classic drawing of the BAAL (bull) – Chaldean king god, who rose as the new-born SUN. Bible students will perhaps be familiar with this horrific idol, the “lord” of the ancient world.

We had already witnessed the Monty Python star Eric Idle performing his song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” which in the movie “The Life of Brian” he sang while hanging on the cross!

Not only the thousands present in the flesh but perhaps billions around the world watched the ceremonies on TV. Many more will see them on subsequent digital media. How better to reach the entire world with a new message?

“The first essential characteristic of the Olympics, both ancient as well as modern, is to be a religion. It represents, above and outside the Churches, humanity’s superior religion.” Baron de Coubertin.

The message I watched removed God from not only Britain’s past but the world’s future. He was not given one iota of recognition or praise for the many blessings we have received over the centuries in this country. Indeed, the height of evangelism and missionary endeavour of the 19th and early 20th century was entirely reduced to a bleak, black and “satanic” nightmare called “pandemonium”.

It was then my spirit was so offended that I felt I did need to write after all.

The results of my studies, with many photos, are to be found on my Birthpangs Website. Start from this link to Part One, and follow the directions for the other two pages.

  1. I wouldn’t expect a sporting event assocaited with “Mt Olympus” and its false gods to give any kind of nod to the One True God – but despite the open paganism in so much of both ceremonies, I was suprised at the inclusion of two hymns in the opening (and no, I’m not including the British Israelite/New age anthem of Jerusalem).

    So, as minimal as it may have been, there was a token “tribute” to the role of Christianity in Britains past.


  2. Amen, Tricia, and thank you for having the courage to write and publish that piece.

    I’m fundamentally against commercial sport – it only breeds short lived demigods and takes from the One God. It supplants Him, and He won’t share His glory, even with highly paid sports professionals.

    This once great nation under God has denied Him and bowed down to the Baals. It worships humanism without knowing the name. It worships flesh, without understanding the temporary and transient nature of flesh. My heart pours itself out in sympathy with Jesus heart – is this what He died for?

    But the price of Britain’s worship of the Baals is yet to be seen. But be seen it will and a few of us will know just why that extra judgement has fallen on this nation.

    Let those of us who understand turn their faces to God and worship Him in spirit and in truth.


    • Grace to you and the Father’s love through Christ Jesus.

      Just a note to let you know I appreciate your insights & watching for us; as a Watchman is called to do. Once a Watchman… always a Watchman.

      Thanx Tricia!
