IS “CHRISTIAN MUSICIAN” MICHAEL W. SMITH…A COVERT OCCULTIST? (If not…then what is going on here??)
As to Michael W. Smith, I had followed the career of this Christian pop musician for years. For whatever reason, his music didn’t appeal to me that much but when my kids came along they liked watching his videotapes, as he was one of the few Christian artists to have professionally produced concert videos. It was something to keep my kids occupied when they were three and four years old.
Having watched him up close on these videos (behind-the-scenes footage and scenes of him at home with his All-American family) and having seen him perform (on TV) at a number of Billy Graham crusades, where he sang and talked briefly about his life…Smith had always come across as completely sincere, very gracious, rather mild-mannered and very charitable with his fans. He wrote and performed a song at the Columbine memorial service.
He had a least one song that rose to the top of the secular charts (“My Place In This World”) and he has collaborated with Amy Grant over the years. For those of you not too familiar with ‘Christian’ pop music, it is fair to say that Smith is at the pinnacle of that particular world. (There may be a couple others who come close.)
Now…when I ran across the following information, it really jolted me in a big way– it was my introduction to the mind boggling possibility of hidden Luciferians who have been deceptively inserted into Christian culture.
Let me say now, when you see some of the evidence below, I certainly agree that we should (at least at this point) be looking at any number of possible explanations as to how and why we can see occult symbolism being displayed in a coded and disguised manner on these Smith CD covers and other of his materials.
Here, for example, is one of his CD’s–“Christmastime”–released in 1998. I’ll get back to this in a moment.
Let’s start with this: On the back of another one of Smith’s CDs entitled “The Big Picture” released in 1986 (see below), his name is spelled backwards. Now, I am not jumping to a conclusion here, nevertheless I would point out that spelling, or talking (and/or a host of others things) backwards is very significant in satanic circles.
However…what is really interesting is that two of the letters in his ‘backwards’ name are RUNIC. They are runes. Notice carefully (see below), the ‘t’ in “Smith” and the ‘m’ in “Michael”. That’s not good. The runic alphabet, in the modern day, is related exclusively to occult practices and witchcraft. It is virtually the satanic alphabet. (The word ‘runic’ means ‘secret’.)
There are several variations of the runic alphabet but in researching, I found that the three major versions which have predominated the occult world, all have the identical ‘t’ and ‘m’ that you see on the back of the Michael W. Smith album.
Now, you may be saying– Come on. It’s just a coincidence. They used several different “fonts” for this stylized print, and they accidently used a couple of runic letters.
Wait a minute– Take another closer look at this “Christmastime” CD cover (seen again, below) which was released 13 years after the aforementioned “Big Picture” album. You will notice that Smith is, again, bringing this runic ‘t’ and ‘m’ into play.
He is forming a runic ‘t’ with his body…going so far as to lower his head, to round off the top of the ‘t’…AND is standing on top of this chair which forms a runic ‘m’. That is pretty shocking stuff.
There is therefore, simply no mistaking the fact that on at least two of his CDs, he is displaying these runic/Luciferian symbols…and is doing so in a secret, coded fashion. That is extremely and pointedly ominous. (Again, the “Christmastime” album was released in 1998.)
(I fully realize that, at this point, many questions come rushing to mind. Please understand–I am going to attempt to address all of these questions as we go along. But it takes some doing. That is the whole purpose of this report.)
AN OCCULT EXPERT’S CONFIRMATION
I subsequently had the opportunity to correspond with an expert on the occult –in particular, germanic and Norse occultism. She had personal connection to the occult world and had also obtained a degree in anthropology, apparently with an emphasis on occult issues. After looking over Smith’s pose on the cover of his “Christmastime” CD she was able to routinely provide some interpretation for these particular runes.
I was stunned. I thought I would go an entire lifetime without knowing what this secret runic message was. I later discovered their meaning was readily available on the trusty old Internet…if I had only known where to look for it. Here were her comments and an analysis of the Smith “Christmastime” CD cover–things which I have since confirmed from other sources:
“In this pose, Smith is making the sign of Tyr (the Sky God), who (according to Norse mythology) sacrificed his hand to the Fenris Wolf in order to save others. It is also a warrior symbol of great courage, and of overcoming death. He is standing on an M, which is the rune for Mankind. I don’t see that as sinister but make of it what you will.”
I wrote back the following comments:
“Now, when you say his choice of runes signifies the ‘sky god’ and that this god is being placed above ‘mankind’…that is very significant to me as a student of the Bible. The ancient manuscripts which make up the Bible, refer to Lucifer as “the prince and power of the air”.
Furthermore, the Scriptures indicate that for the time being,all of the world is virtually under Lucifer’s dominion(although not complete control). It seems to me, a Luciferian would be very interested in depicting Lucifer as reigning supreme over mankind. I don’t know what you see from your particular cultural perspective but I can tell you that for Smith to seemingly indicate such a message…is spectacularly and utterly in opposition to his purported ‘conservative Christian’ philosophy.
And once again, given what I have observed in his kindly, charitable demeanor…it’s indicative to me of an ominous ‘Jekyl and Hyde’ thing, going on.
Thanks for your insights.”
In the occult world, not only is Tyr known as a “sky god”…the Egyptian god “Ra” is also known as a ‘sky god’. From the Biblical perspective we know that Satan has come by a number of aliases. It seems a pretty fair surmising that in referencing the “sky god”, Ra and Tyr are therefore likely aliases for the Devil himself.
Of course, in regard to Smith’s display of these runes…if Tyr is only a henchman to Satan…a mere ‘also-ran’ in the pantheon of pagan/demonic gods…would that make it any better? I should think not.
By the way, if you research the pagan religions of the world throughout history, it is intriguing how often the “sky god” concept comes into play: Amaruca and Quetzacouatl, are two different names for supposedly two different pagan deities.
Both of these entities played central roles in South American pagan antiquity, and both are described as “plumed” or “winged” flying serpent gods. Airborne serpent/gods: May we derive a hint here? Are the two different “deities” merely a disguised Lucifer?
Add Ra and Tyr to the list…and whether the Canaanite god “Moloch” (or Molech) is yet another alias for Lucifer, it seems clear that over the course of thousands of years, the Devil has fronted behind several different deity facades and even seems to have shifted his focus of activity geographically, for whatever reason:
From Egypt…to Canaan…to the Aztecs and the Mayans in South America…to the goddess Diana Lucifera, arguably the central deity of the Roman empire (and whom I suspect of being a female version of Lucifer)…to the British Isles and Druidism…along with the Germanic peoples and also the Viking culture…each seems to have recognized a single supreme pagan deity, and yet referred to this ‘god’ by a series of different names. (Even in the Bible, there is the recognition of different names—Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer, the serpent, the dragon, etc.)

FURTHER INDICATIONS FROM SMITH
If you’re rather inclined to look for some kind of “out” or some kind of “down-to-earth” explanation that would clear things up for Smith…it certainly doesn’t help things to realize that he has openly and enthusiastically acknowledged (apparently without his fans understanding the ominous significance) having patterned himself in the past, after the Alan Parsons Project.
Particularly in the context of what we have already seen here, this would seem to be further grounds for concern, regarding some sort of occult orientation on Smith’s part:
APP is a pointedly occultic rock group which has routinely displayed satanic symbolism on its cover art. Smith made his supportive remarks in an interview with Inside Music magazine, in their Jan/Feb 1991 issue (p.23).
Below, the cover of this Alan Parsons Project album (entitled “EYE IN THE SKY”) has a depiction of the Egyptian/satanic “Eye of Ra”.
In order to better understand this, we need to first take a closer look at the Eye of Ra or “all-seeing eye” occult symbol. In the modern era, the Eye has been adopted as a luciferian/Masonic symbol and is used by a huge array of occultists and occult groups.
The most famous depiction of the “all-seeing eye” is on the U.S. One Dollar bill, where we see this eye placed inside of a triangle (which is yet another occult symbol). But the ‘E of H’ is also cropping up in many other places these days.
Here are some examples of the luciferian Eye of Horus symbol: Top to bottom– the Dollar bill; the classic Egyptian “Eye of Ra”; and a movie poster for “Aeon Flux”.
Top to bottom: America Online, Time Warner…a bit further down, ICON Entertainment, and LucasArts.
The Time Warner logo is depicting the “Eye of Ra” occult symbol, by virtue of that line that comes swooping down beneath the ‘eye’ (compare it to the Eye of Ra presentation above).
ICON Entertainment and LucasArts (below) on the other hand, are examples of the eye/triangle combo version of the “all-seeing eye” symbol. And these two logos also give you a good idea of the subtle (and one could even say ‘sneaky’) modifications that are often incorporated in an apparent attempt to disguise the symbol.
By that I mean…notice with these two logos (ICON and LucasArts) how, in both instances, the “eye” is rather slyly tilting into the corner, to create a rough approximation of a triangle/eye combination. Also, notice the visual misdirection of the LucasArts logo, whereby the stick figure ‘man’ with the uplifted arms is all that most people will ever notice.
Don’t be so quick, by the way, to dismiss these symbol displays in various corporate logos, as “nothing”. As a Bible-believer and as someone who should attempt to discern the world around you….even at this early stage of the examination, consider the possibility of a connection between the rich and the powerful of this world..and the “world spirit” himself. Follow along in reading through this information and I believe you’ll begin to realize and understand the full significance.
Again, you are going to see a wide variety of modifications with these occult symbols. This sort of thing is considered ‘par for the course’ in the occult world. After all, the very word “occult” means “secret” or “hidden”. It is the objective of any true occultist…to disguise and to hide his occultic affiliation.
Having said that, the following Michael Smith CD cover is quite troubling. The title of this particular Smith CD is — “I2(EYE)”.
Notice in the background, a shaded triangle (behind Smith’s photo), and at the one corner of the triangle (not as easy to see)…there is the title in red letters– I2(EYE) . Triangle+EYE…get it? Granted, this eye/triangle occult symbol is being presented in a coded fashion…but that, I believe, only makes this more ominous.
By itself, we might brush off this CD cover design as coincidental. But in context…having previously observed the other occult symbolism, this becomes very significant. (I have also wondered why the bottom part of the photo has been torn off, and what that missing portion might reveal, since it was obviously a deliberate tear.)
Below, for additional comparison to the Smith CD: Yet another example of the Eye of Ra in a ‘triangle’ setting.
And by the way…while we’re on the subject of “eyes” which have been depicted tilting subtly into a corner for the purpose of creating an approximated triangle/eye presentation…notice once again, Smith’s 1986 album “The Big Picture”…this time thefront side of the album:
I’ve detected yet another thing like this from Smith. Actually a friend pointed out the visual clue (on the cover of a Smith DVD) and I did some research to verify the significance of it.
Let me first set the stage– You have to take a quick look at the history of the so-called ‘Peace symbol’. It’s origins seem rather indisputable to me. Here is a quote:
“Known as the ‘peace sign’ throughout the sixties and into the present day, this symbol is the Teutonic rune of death. Fifties peace advocate Gerald Holtom may have been commissioned by…Bertrand Russell to design a symbol to unite leftist peace marchers in 1958.
It is clear that either Holtom or Russell deemed the Teutonic (Neronic) cross as the appropriate symbol for their cause.
The peace symbol (also called the “broken cross,” “crow’s foot,” “witch’s foot,” “Nero Cross,” “sign of the ‘broken Jew,'” and the “symbol of the ‘anti-Christ”’) is actually a cross with the arms broken.
“The Germanic tribes who used it attributed strange and mystical properties to the sign. Such a ‘rune’ is said to have been used by ‘black magicians’ in pagan incantations and condemnations….To this very day the inverted broken cross–identical to the socialists’ ‘peace’ symbol–is known in Germany as a ‘todesrune,’ or death rune.
[Added note: Notice in these comments, yet another hint of the
Marxist/occult connection. I cover this whole aspect later on here.]
Not only was it ordered by Hitler’s National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices, but it was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. The symbol suited Nazi emphasis on pagan mysticism.” LINK
Take a look at the cover of this Smith DVD– Look carefully at the hair on his forehead: There appears to be a deliberate structuring of these three prongs of hair. It certainly looks as though a ‘modified’ Crow’s Foot/Raven’s Foot is being displayed on Smith’s forehead. As I have said…keep in mind the context of what we have already looked at. He seems to be tilting his head slightly down and to the left.
This “crow’s foot” appears to crop up at yet another Michael W. Smith website — Rocketown.
Rocketown is a direct arm and a creation of the Smith organization. It was named after one of his songs. Again, I normally wouldn’t pay much attention to something that could easily be passed off as an ‘arrow’. But that’s a pretty stubby arrow…so stubby in fact, that it looks like a version of the “crow’s foot” occult symbol…given the context.
I say again– One of the things you learn in studying occult symbolism is that devotees come up with all kinds of creative ‘modification’. You have already seen some of this and will see many more examples as you go along here.
These modifications are done for a combination of reasons: To afford a certain degree of “deniability” and/or to flat-out disguise/conceal the symbol being used.
For example, thinking back to Smith’s “Christmastime” CD…even though many occult experts and occultists recognize Smith’s ‘rune posing’ on the cover of this CD…in actuality the undercarriage of the wicker chair he is standing on forms only anapproximation of the runic “M”.
Therefore, in the same way a broad range of variances in cursive or printed writing of the English language can still be routinely deciphered by even an average reader…the occult symbolism and messages are NOT lost on those who know what to look for, despite some of the variations and modifications.
In fact, I have gotten the distinct impression there is almost a kind of competition to see who can come up with the most ingenious modifications and disguises for these symbols. You’ll see more of this shortly.
Moving along: Yet another coded occult symbol is currently displayed (as of December ’07) at the official Michael W.Smith . It is the so-called “infinity” symbol. It looks like a sideways number “8” and is normally associated with mathematical concepts. Though it is not as well known for its occult significance as, say, the Eye of Horus or the Broken Cross (Peace symbol)…it is a clearly established occult symbol nonetheless.
Below, you see an example of the ancient occultic Alchemy symbol for brimstone. It incorporates both the Double Cross of Lorraine, as well as the Infinity symbol. Both are occult symbols in their own right.
By the way, the corporate logos for Nabisco and Exxon also both utilize the Cross of Lorraine in their design….providing yet another indication that occultism (Luciferianism) is a religion/cult for the elite, the rich, the powerful. Of course, the study of occult symbolism in hundreds of corporate logos, Hollywood logos, and in many other places…is another whole world in itself. This will be touched on throughout this report.
Back to our examination of Smith: Below is yet another occultic depiction of the infinity symbol–on a Tarot card referred to as “The Magician”. And below that, the 2007 Christmas CD from Smith which, as you see, incorporates the infinity symbol twice. Currently, this CD is advertised at the MichaelWSmith.com website design (although the site is frequently altered).
THE “ROCKETOWN” EVIDENCE
Finally, any examination of Michael Smith is not complete until we’ve taken a closer look at Smith’s youth club, Rocketown, located in Smith’s hometown of Nashville. He and the staff of Rocketown have consistently represented this place to be a Christian-oriented “safe haven” where Christian parents can send their kids for wholesome and uplifting entertainment.
In light of the evidence to the absolute contrary, it is astounding to me that Smith and his people get away with this.
The fact of the matter is that Rocketown has hosted a long list of overtly satanic rock bands. I repeat– Michael W. Smith’s Rocketown (about a 20 minute drive from Smith’s home outside Nashville) has hosted a huge array of overtly satanic, occultic rock bands which feature pornographic, hardcore obscenity-laced lyrics in their songs.
If you’re having trouble believing this–in just a moment I am going to link you to a Christian website that has specifically focused on researching Rocketown. There you will be able to document for yourself the true nature and character of these many occultic rock bands, and read a number of excerpts from their gut-wrenching, perverted, satanic song lyrics. I couldn’t even bear to place them directly in this report. You’ll have to link over there and see it for yourself.
As of this writing, I have yet to quite figure out just how Rocketown has pulled this off. It may be a sign of the times, that Christian ‘discernment’ is so utterly lacking. But there also appears to be some rather skillful misdirection going on– misleading public statements from Smith and other staff members which give the impression this place is just short of being a Sunday School picnic club, or something.
Starting with the top poster (left)– “Gore” (with some sort of grotesque ‘demon-child’ depicted)? “Kill Whitney Dead”?“Bloodwake”? What in the world is going on here??! And in the bottom row (on the left)…there’s something about seeing a depiction of a young woman with a chain plunged into her head, a meathook coming out of the front of her face, and a slashed and bloody throat (the “Promised Threat” poster)…that doesn’t make me think about the message of salvation.
To the right of that–if you look at the Lokyata poster for a concert which was recently held at Rocketown (in 2007)…you will notice unfortunately in the upper right corner of this poster, a photo which is blatantly suggestive of sexual behavior.
I would ask Michael Smith– What IS this? What ARE you doing at Rocketown? Why WOULD you allow or promote such things?
The problem is– he has been asked. Rocketown has been approached. There has been no response. Below is the official logo for “Goatblaster”–one of the specific rock bands to have performed at Rocketown–
This is a satanic band, with a blatantly satanic logo, a satanicpentagram, a satanic goat’s head, and with satanic,pornographic song lyrics…AND…they perform at Rocketown. I would ask fellow believers to discern something
here. Please discern something.
Jesus instructs us in the Olivet Discourse to “watch…and pray”and ultimately, the answer to questions about these satanic “false prophets” / “wolves in sheep’s clothing” Evangelicals…is globe-spanning in its implications.
I really believe therefore that, as Jesus stipulates in Matthew 24, one must literally have an accurate understanding ofworld politics in order to decipher the full extent of what this covert infiltration is all about. If you know your Bible, you know that any satanic strategy…is ultimately a geopolitical strategy.
In a very unexpected and diabolically ingenious way, this Evangelical/ Charismatic/fundamentalist infiltration phenomenon ties into a global domination scheme.
In preparation for what lies ahead in this book, I have been delving a bit into the subject of “geopolitics”. We will shortly dive in head first into this subject…and try to understand more fully this whole “hidden Luciferians” phenomenon and how this all ties in to Jesus’ predictions regarding the Devil’s geopolitical strategies in the ‘end times’.
Following my analysis of Denson and Arthur, I will then attempt to go back through history and show evidence of a centuries-old pattern of covert occultism right here in America and elsewhere….and try to demonstrate how all of this relates directly to the ‘end times’ scenarios of Bible prophecy
For the moment though…allow me to put the focus back on this astonishing and deadly serious advisory from Jesus:
He states unequivocally that many who have been His followers throughout life will, in the last days “turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other” (Matt. 24: 10)…and that furthermore only “he who stands firm to the end will be saved”.
(I personally believe in the “once saved-always saved” doctrine–but from the human vantage point we can only fully confirm our own personal salvation status over a lifetime of faithful followership.)
One of my main goals for this online “book” has been to try to do something to resist this huge deception plan…to give fellow Jesus-followers a “heads up”.
“BEHOLD, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.”
Another thing to keep in mind before we look at more research material: No matter how dark the storm clouds on the horizon…we have no need for worry or anxiety. No need to fear or fret. That is the promise (and the offer) of the Scriptures:
“In this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” –John 16:33
I will admit—the darker this world becomes, the more amazing are these admonitions in the Bible to “fear nothing”…to “be anxious for nothing”…or “let not your heart be troubled”…etc. But the literal truth of the matter is that no matter what trials or tribulation might befall us, the promise of Scripture is that God will “provide a way…that we may be able to bear up…” under it and through it.
It reminds me of a song we sang hundreds of times throughout my ‘youth group’ years: “Through it all…I’ve learned to trust in Jesus…I’ve learned to depend upon His Word”.
