Truthiracy – The As Above So Below Principle

Here is a question I received concerning the movie series Truthiracy on Youtube from a woman named Carol:

Doug, To focus on just ONE of the many questions that the Truthiracy films brings to my mind, I guess I’ll start with “El” and sacrifices. Why are there horns on the altar of sacrifice if the Jews weren’t supposed to take on the practices of the pagans? The word El now has me confounded after seeing the YouTube I linked to you (see below). I’m well aware that Satan counterfeits everything God does or will do …so I guess some Of my confusion can be explained by that! This one SHORT film is a “starter” in terms of Truthiracy. I still don’t get where this guy is coming from in terms of his belief in God, but his expose of Satan/illuminati in our world is compelling. If he is trying to trash belief in “Jesus” and religion, he’s doing a fine job . But since Yeshua and the “Jesus” are NOT THE SAME in my view, I can handle the trashing of the counterfeit Jesus. Beware of some of the films on this series… some of the info might be offensive /…usually a warning is at opening if lewd pictures will follow. Truthiracy is trying to make a point re: symbols around us that are symbols of what he describes as “sex magic”…i Thanks for answering. Shalom, Carol


Hello Carol, There is no question that the enemy wants to counterfeit everything that God has done or is doing. The principle that the occults use is “as above so below”. It is interesting to note that this concept really comes from God: “According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it.” (Exodus 25:9)

“Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as He appointed, instructing Moses to make it according to the pattern that he had seen,” (Acts 7:44)

“who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, ‘See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.'”[1] (Hebrews 8:5)

The things like the horns on the altar were put there because in some way there is the original in heaven. Satan of course used to be in God’s presence and knows of all the things that are in God’s presence. Consider how pyramids/ziggurats around the word are artificial mountains with an occult center of worship on top – Satan was on the “holy mountain of God” (Ezek 28:14, 16), he tried to seat himself on the mountain of the congregation, where God was seated (Isaiah 14:13) and there are many references to God’s mountain in the rest of the Bible. All that to say – Satan wants to counterfeit what God has made and call it his own. I would like to recommend that you read my article on Satan’s Origin and Fall – I think that it will give you a much better idea of what is the bigger picture which will explain many of the concepts that the film, and those like it, raise.
