I post this verbatim and without comment. This is a prophetic voice in the land. You can choose to hear him or not.
What follow is from Prophet Art directly:
As most of you probably know by now, a giant statue of Anubis, the Egyptian god of death and the underworld, was installed last week at the Denver International Airport (‘DIA’). Recall that Anubis sailed into New York Harbor in an equally prominent way on March 23, the same day the president signed the health- death-care bill.
…a seven-ton, 26-foot-tall concrete sculpture of an Egyptian god… will be built south of the Jeppesen Terminal… It’s being put in to preview the Denver Art Museum’s King Tut exhibit. The exhibit runs June 29 through Jan. 9, 2011, and Anubis will be standing guard during that time.
Note that two different people in the video describe Anubis as “paving the way”, ostensibly for the King Tut exhibit. I’m convinced its for much more.
I’ve been holding off writing on this. It seemed almost too obvious to anyone tuned into what time it is on the spiritual time-clock. On reflection though (and after more and more of you have mentioned it to me, my assumption being that most of you are also in touch with the Holy Spirit) it seems worth setting in context. There is more to it.
The saddest, darkest thing about it is that it has a “context” at all.
Lots of “interesting”, amusing, entertaining events with possible spiritual significance happen all the time without a strong connections to anything larger. They may provide new insights, but they aren’t watersheds of global import. This one, by contrast, seems to sit towards the opposite end of that spectrum. Spiritually, it is anything but an ‘accident’; anything but ‘coincidence’; anything but a side-show.
Denver is significant, I believe, not in and of itself (residents of that place are not, en masse, any more or less sinful, or faithful, than the rest of us any more than, say, New Yorkers) but because, as the centerpiece of the Rocky Mountains (my apologies to Billings, Albuquerque and Boise) Denver stands as AMERICA’s “high place”.
(Think John Denver’s popular tunes, or the fact that he didn’t choose to change his name to John Salt Lake or John Idaho Falls from the original mouthful of German he was born with.) Then there’s the “purple mountains, majesty” we’re all so familiar with in the tune, ‘America’.)
The mountains of sparsely-populated Alaska are higher and grander but their cities are much lower down. Sarah Palin notwithstanding, they are hardly central to American life. The Sierras of California boast the highest peak in the Lower 48 but none of the major West Coast cities sits at altitude.
I can think of no other serious rival to Denver as the U.S.’s Mount Carmel combined with Babel – a central hub for spiritual face-off and sparring. Note that Denver is also a primary ‘hub’ for United Airlines. Recall also the pagan worship circle legally allowed to remain on the grounds of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, just a bit to the south, another claiming on the “power of the air,” Ephesians 2:2)
See also the classic text, 1st Kings 18:20-40, as God, via Elijah, takes on the baal-worshipers of ancient Israel on Mount Carmel. Verse 21 seems especially applicable to the modern scene where few even want to honestly engage fundamental question of spiritual allegiance:
And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.
I was drawn to this passage this morning as our pastor preached from Luke 16, verse 13 of which will be familiar to many:
No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon.
(I just learned that ‘Mammon’ — money — is a proper name. It means “The Lord of Unrighteousness”. It’s not a long trip from there to Satan himself. A review of the Clash’s classic song “Should I Stay or Should I Go” and its lyrics should give a further sense of this same concept from the other side of the salvation looking-glass.)
In short, not choosing (to follow Christ) is choosing.
Recall the DNC ’08 in Denver and the recently earthquakes that point to it.
In the Northern Hemisphere, objects cast shadows towards the north — longer in winter, shorter in summer. This Anubis statue, representing the Egyptian god of death and the underworld, will cast its shadow towards (and possibly onto) the Jeppesen Terminal.
The name Jeppesen means, “a descendant of Jessen, a form of Jacob”. As most know, ‘Jacob’ is another way of saying “Israel”. (In Genesis 32, an angel of the Lord, very possibly the Lord himself, renamed Jacob ‘Israel’ after wrestling with him all night. This passages is almost as well-known and foundational to Jews as John 3:16 is to Christians. Ironically, many Christians, including me, assume they involve the same guy — Christ, the Lord in a pre-incarnate cameo.)
A terminal is an end-point, e.g., the termination of a flight, or the termination of a car or bus journey to leave and catch a flight. When someone has a fatal illness, we say that he or she is ‘terminal’, meaning that his or her life is about to reach its end point. To have the Egyptian god of death casting a shadow on a building symbolic of the end (terminal) of the descendants of Jacob (Jeppesen) is most ominous, especially coming, as it does, amidst a cascade of events in and around Israel.
Among Jacob’s sons were Judah (see Genesis 29 — Judah is the name from which the term ‘Jew’ arises). Recall also the theory, touched on in a previous post, that America may be spiritually associated with either of Jacob’s sons-via-blessing (his half-Egyptian grandsons, via Joseph: Ephraim and Manasseh; see Genesis 48-49).
Looping back, recall that the reason we’re talking about this in the first place is that, the arrival of Anubis to our shores back in March seemed to signal the arrival of the spirit of Egypt. If America is spiritually “Israelitish,” as one commenter put it — my bet is Ephraim — then March 23rd represented a turning point as, Jekyl-and-Hyde-like, that side of our dual national nature felt strong enough to “come out” in public.
There are many reasons to think of America as having played a special “Israelitish” role in the world that I don’t have time to go into here — i.e., a role larger, and more focused on the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Jesus Christ than any other nation except perhaps, in a different era, Britain. A prayer-covered D-Day, 6-6-44, i.e., 66 years ago today is just one example.
The King Tut exhibit in Denver is scheduled to begin June 29th. That evening marks the beginning of Tzom Tammuz — the 17th of the month of Tammuz on the Hebrew calendar. Here’s how one authoritative Jewish website describes it:
The 17th day in the Jewish month of Tammuz, Jews the world over fast and lament to commemorate the many calamities that have befallen our people on this ominous day.
The purpose of such fasts in the Jewish calendar is, according to Rabbi Eliyahu Kitov’s Book of Our Heritage, “to awaken hearts towards repentance through recalling our forefathers’ misdeeds; misdeeds which led to calamities…”
I’m sure readers can fill in more details but I want to get this up before the incoming thunderstorm ‘zaps’ my computer — or me!
“Bluecifer” is showing cracks (May 23, 2010)
The large blue mustang statue outside Denver International Airport is showing signs of wear just two years after its installation. This is not the first streak of bad luck for the mustang that has been given many other unflattering nicknames including “Satan’s Steed” and “Blue Devil Horse.”
Luis Jimenez [the statue's creator] was killed in 2006 when “Mustang” fell on him. Jimenez’s sons completed the blue metallic sculpture, which was installed Feb. 11, 2008.

Hmm… showing signs of wear only two years after “installation”? Interesting… The anniversary of Obama’s anointing in Denver at the DNC is coming up in August.
