The Second Boston Massacre - The Devil is in the Details

Joseph Herrin (04-18-2013)























Depiction of Boston Massacre Drawn by Paul Revere
(Click on any image to view larger)

The above flyer produced by Paul Revere, Freemason, and agent provocateur, reads:

The bloody massacre perpetrated in King Street Boston on March 5th 1770 by a party of the 29th Regt.

Unhappy Boston! see thy Sons deplore
Thy hallow'd walks besmear'd with guiltless gore
While faithless P____n and his savage bands
With murd'rous rancour stretch their bloody hands
Like fierce barbarians grinning o'er their prey
Approve the carnage and enjoy the day.

If scalding drops from rage, from anguish wrung
If speechless sorrow, lab'ring for a tongue
Or if a weeping world can ought appease
The plaintive ghosts of victims such as these
The patriot's copious tears for each are shed
A glorious tribute which embalms the dead.

But know, Fate summons to that awful goal
Where Justice strips the murd'rer of his soul,
Should venal C___ts, the scandal of the land,
Snatch the relentless villain from her Hand
Keen execrations on this plate inscrib'd
Shall reach a Judge who never can be brib'd.

If you have not read the series Dragon Flood, that reveals the Masonic and Luciferian connections of America’s founding fathers and original “patriots,” you will possibly have difficulty perceiving that Paul Revere was an agent of Satan fomenting rebellion. I recommend that series to you if you are interested in reading an accurate historical account of America’s founding as a nation.

The following words of the apostle Paul accurately describe men like Paul Revere:

II Corinthians 11:14-15
Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

The following quotation reveals the extent of Paul Revere’s involvement in Freemasonry.

At age 25, Paul Revere was initiated in St. Andrew's Lodge on September 4, 1760. He was the first candidate received after their Charter dated 1756 was received from the Grand Lodge of Scotland. He was raised on January 27, 1761. The records of St. Andrew's Royal Arch Chapter, functioning as part of St. Andrew's Lodge, indicate that Paul Revere became a Royal Arch Mason and Knight Templar on December 11, 1769. Brother Revere was very active in his Lodge by his attendance and serving as Junior Deacon, Junior Warden, and Secretary before being installed at age 35 as Worshipful Master on November 30, 1770. At that time he was already serving as Senior Grand Deacon of the Massachusetts (Provincial) Grand Lodge. This was the beginning of his "very active masonic career" which is indicated by the list of his Lodge Offices attached to this paper. He served nine (9) terms as Worshipful Master, 5 with St. Andrew's Lodge and 4 with Rising States Lodge and, with the exception of the Revolutionary war years, served continuously as a Grand Lodge Officer from 1769 to 1797. Time does not permit a complete definition of his role in the formation of Rising States Lodge and the Massachusetts Grand Lodge; however, he certainly was an active participant.

It seems fitting that Paul Revere constructed his poem on the Boston Massacre by utilizing three stanzas of six lines each. Look under the image on the flyer and you will see these three stanzas laid out horizontal to one another. They take the form 6-6-6.

Paul Revere is regarded by many as an American Patriot, an image he sought to cultivate. He produced this flyer to rally support for the rebellion, planned by Freemasons in The Green Dragon Tavern, Boston, whose upper floor served as the meeting room for St. Andrews Masonic Lodge. The Masonic rebellion would be officially sanctioned by America’s founding fathers when the Declaration of Independence was signed six years later. During the ensuing years, Revere agitated for rebellion, and was instrumental in numerous acts of aggression against the British. His most famous activity is commonly referred to as “the midnight ride of Paul Revere.” This occurred five years after the Boston Massacre, on the night of April 18 (again 6+6+6), in the year 1775.

Paul Revere rode from Boston warning men, a large percentage of whom were undoubtedly his fellow Freemasons, that the British were marching toward Lexington and Concord. The Boston Marathon is held annually on Patriots’ Day, which is a civic holiday in Massachusetts, commemorating the battles of Lexington and Concord.

The tie-ins between the Boston Massacre of Paul Revere’s day, and the massacre that occurred this week during the running of the Boston Marathon, are numerous. Consider the image and following line taken from the flyer produced by Paul Revere.

















Thy hallow'd walks besmear'd with guiltless gore

Compare the above to the following:















Thy hallow'd walks besmear'd with guiltless gore

Look again at the close-up image of Paul Revere’s flyer. Focusing narrowly on this portion of the drawing, the cloud from the soldier’s rifles looks similar to the cloud of smoke and dust that attended the two explosions in Boston this week. Out of this cloud of smoke in the Revere image came metal projectiles, round balls not unlike the ball bearings that came from the exploding bombs on Boylston Street.

Note also that in the image drawn by Paul Revere, three men lie dead on the ground. This is a historically accurate detail, for three men were immediately slain during the first Boston Massacre (two others later died from their wounds). Three people also died in the immediate aftermath of this second Boston massacre.

In Revere’s drawing the wounded are carried by the crowd away from the scene of carnage, and this too has found its parallel.


















































Carrying the Injured

Continuing the parallels between Revere’s day and the present, history records that the “patriots” of the American colonies were moved to action on the night of Paul Revere’s ride, being provoked because the British government had given command to disarm them. Following is a quote from Wikipedia.

On April 14th, General Gage received instructions from Secretary of State William Legge, Earl of Dartmouth (dispatched on 27th January), to disarm the rebels, who were known to have hidden weapons in Concord, among other locations, and to imprison the rebellion's leaders, especially Samuel Adams and John Hancock. Dartmouth gave Gage considerable discretion in his commands. Gage issued orders to Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith to proceed from Boston "with utmost expedition and secrecy to Concord, where you will seize and destroy... all Military stores.
[Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Revere#.22Midnight_Ride.22]

Today it is America’s government that is pressing forward to disarm the populace. This is stirring up many who are considered patriots today. Once more there is a revolution brewing. The Battle of Lexington and Concord took place on April 19th, 1775. This happens to be the same month and day that the Waco massacre occurred, and the Oklahoma City bombing two years later. Whether one looks at the actual anniversary date of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, or the civic holiday that commemorates the event, they are equally marked by recent massacres of non-combatant citizens.

It may be of interest for some to note that yesterday, April 17th, just one day prior to the anniversary of Paul Revere’s midnight ride, and two days prior to the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, there were explosions reported in the news that occurred in, or near, Waco, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

http://www.koco.com/news/oklahomanews/okc/Police-Explosion-at-apartment-complex-came-from-e-cigarette/-/11777584/19768650/-/po4rsj/-/index.html

The following video showing the massive explosion at the fertilizer plant near Waco shows the enormity of this blast.

http://youtu.be/ROrpKx3aIjA



In another parallel, the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building utilized a fertilizer bomb. Fertilizer is a common material employed by bomb makers as it contains a high level of nitrates which are explosive. Like these bombs, America is a powder keg waiting to explode.

Satan is the guiding hand behind these events. Yahshua declared that Satan “comes only to kill, steal, and destroy,” and that he is “a murderer from the beginning.” Satan’s signature is present in the details of this second Boston massacre.

A brother in Christ sent me a link to an article posted the day of the bombing that made mention of the fact that the finish line of the Boston Marathon is located at 666 Boylston Street. Later I was sent an image from Google maps that showed this to be true, but I decided to test this myself. Using Google’s Chrome browser, I went to the Google map site and keyed in the address 666 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts. I then clicked on the link for the street view, and I was able to obtain the following image.
















Note that the pushpin labeled “A” marks the precise location that Google maps identifies as 666 Boylston Street. The marker sits within inches of the Finish Line for the Boston Marathon. Symbolically, I would suggest that this indicates that America’s marathon, which began with the American Revolution, is about to be finished. America’s days as a constitutional republic are soon to end in a fiery cataclysm.

Doing a little research on the naming of Boylston Street, I found the following information.

It was later again renamed for Ward Nicholas Boylston (1747–1828), a man of wealth and refinement, an officer of the Crown, and philanthropist.
[Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boylston_Street]

I was immediately struck by the phrase “a man of wealth and refinement,” observing in it a parallel to the lyrics of the Rolling Stones’s song Sympathy for the Devil.

"Sympathy For The Devil"

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste

The words “refinement” and “taste” describe the same character trait. So not only does the finish line of the Boston Marathon coincide with the number 666, but the street it is on is named after a man who is described in an identical manner as the Devil. (Boylston’s middle name was Nicholas, and one of Satan’s personas is Old Nick - Santa/Satan.)

Bear in mind that Satan and his human emissaries made much of this Rolling Stones’ song during the recent Super Bowl. The main sponsor of the Super Bowl was Mercedes Benz, who featured a commercial for a new car that incorporated this song in its soundtrack.

http://parablesblog.blogspot.com/2013/01/february-3rd-2013.html

Satan announces many of his plans through the media and through the corporate entities that he controls. Mercedes is one of many international corporations under Satan’s yoke. A double entendre was clearly intended by the following ad that Mercedes placed in ESPN Magazine.























How does one set their soul free? They do so by dying. It is at the moment of death that the soul is loosed from the body. 2013 has begun with much evil, yet it promises to become far worse before the year is concluded.

As I was viewing images of the Boston Marathon bombing, I was struck by the incongruity of one photo that was included on NBC’s website. Every other photo showed pictures of the bombs exploding, or the aftermath. They all featured the wounded, emergency workers, the moment of the explosion, or something that definitely revealed that a calamity had occurred. One picture was added to the mix that has nothing to do with the bombing...., or does it? This image shows a woman holding up a sign encouraging a friend named April to finish the race. Like the Super Bowl ad, the message on her sign holds a double meaning, for not only is April the name of her friend, but it is the month we are now in, the month that the bombing occurred.

















Sign reads: “APRIL - It’s all down hill from here!”

Why did NBC add this photo to their portfolio of bombing images? What message are the network’s rulers, and disciples of Satan, seeking to convey? The answer may lie in examining the history of the first Boston Massacre. Wikipedia has the following statement in their article on the Boston Massacre.

The event is widely viewed as foreshadowing the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War...
[Source: ibid]

The Boston Massacre was NOT a spontaneous or random event. Freemasons were seeking support for their rebellion. They needed some public atrocity to rally the people to their cause. Historical accounts reveal that the British soldiers showed considerable restraint, while being threatened by a mob that was pelting them with snowballs (many of which had rocks in them), and other objects. They were backed into a corner where they feared for their lives, and only fired into the crowd after being assaulted. John Adams, the future President of the United States, was chosen to serve as defense lawyer for the British soldiers, who were tried in American courts. The British troops were exonerated when the actual facts of the event were presented.

The outcome of the trial did not hinder the cause of the Freemasons. Men like Paul Revere utilized the press to spread a false depiction of the event. Their purpose was to manipulate the masses into supporting the aims of the Freemasons. Satan has always worked through deception. He has found the media, even the primitive press of Paul Revere’s day, to be an effective channel for his lies.

It was the same Freemasons who planned the Boston Tea Party at the Green Dragon Tavern, and in their lodges. It was the Freemasons who drove the British to take action against the colonists by seeking to remove the guns of the rebels. It was the Freemasons who initiated conflicts such as the Battle of Lexington and Concord that soon erupted into open warfare.  William Still, in his book New World Order, reports that twenty-four of George Washington’s major generals were masons and thirty of thirty-three brigadier generals were Masons. The Freemasons were continually guiding the course of events in the American colonies.

The goal of the Freemasons in the 18th century was to overthrow the government that existed in the American colonies in order that they might establish their own government. Massacres, and violent and deceptive acts like the Boston Tea Party, all served the ends of the Masonic masters. Little has changed today. Once more the servants of Lucifer are seeking to bring an end to one form of government, so they may establish a new one. Out of the ashes of the old system will arise a New World Order.

People of God, the mass of people in this nation are being manipulated. They are being guided by an unseen hand whose goal is the end of America as a constitutional republic, and the formation of a global government. The assaults on the Bill of Rights, the profusion of Executive Orders by the President, and many other devices are being employed to bring to a close America’s long race as the world’s oldest democratic republic.

The Bible reveals that Satan and his servants will succeed in their plans, but their success will be temporal. Yahshua will return and bring an end to the rule of Satan and his disciples. Until then, the people of God must prepare themselves spiritually to be able to stand in the midst of dark days. Wickedness is increasing. Satan’s presence is being felt to an increasing degree day by day. He knows his time is short, and he has great wrath. He will slaughter many more people before his rule is brought to an end.

As a watchman, and a minister appointed by Yahshua, I would have you be aware of the deception all around you. We should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. Do not believe the commentary you are hearing from the media. The media is an instrument in Satan’s hands to deceive the masses. Whether the event is the slaughter of men, women and children at a church compound in Waco, Texas; the Oklahoma City bombing; the “terrorist” attacks of 9-11; the Sandy Hook elementary shooting; or the Boston Marathon bombing, you will not find the truth reported in the mainstream media.

The masters of deceit manipulate the public by feeding them lies. This was practiced on American soil as far back as Paul Revere’s publication of the Masonic view of the Boston Massacre. Satan has not altered his methods, for they work extremely well.

I John 5:19
The whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

I will close this post with the following admonition from the apostle Peter.

I Peter 5:8
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

And not one thing from you about any sadness or remorse about the 3 who died or the 140+ wounded.
Joseph, where is your compassion?
One of the dead was a 8 year boy!
Yes, I don't doubt your words ring true but again where is your compassion for the victims.
Sigh!!

Joseph Herrin said...

Hello Kevin,

I have known great sadness, bordering on despondency at times recently, as I have contemplated the attacks carried out by Satan and his disciples on hapless victims. I have particularly grieved over the children slain at Waco, Sandy Hook, and now the young boy at the Boston Marathon, whose younger sister was also seriously injured.

You can read my other writings and discover that I am neither heartless, not lacking compassion for those who suffer in such events. I recommend the following blog post to you:

Adding Insult to Injury

It is an unjust criticism to find fault with a minister for not expressing sadness or remorse every time he makes reference of human tragedy. If you applied the same standard to Christ, He would also come up short. Consider the following exchange He had with people about two tragedies that occurred in His day.

Luke 13:1-5
Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And He answered and said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered this fate? "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish."

Notice something lacking here? There are no words of sadness or remorse from the Lord. Did He lack compassion? He was soon to lay down His very life for the ones He was speaking to.

Let us judge with righteous judgment.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days,

Joseph

I am so blessed to have discovered your blog. I am reminded of your words all week long and contemplate what The Lord shares through your insight. I thank you for your time and efforts. You are an encouragement and a confirmation many times to my own dear leading from The Lord.

Kevin said...

Thank You for your reponse!
As a fellow laborer of Christ as you are, I try my best to show both sides of everthing that I might write or speak. I'm very sensitive to evil acts that take life, because my only child, my son was murdered almost 7 years ago, so the murder of the innocent affects me greatly. I'm sure that you can understand that, forgive me if I came off harsh because I didn't mean to be. I would just hope that you would take the time and effort to reconize the fallen and the hurting in your posts from time to time.
Bless you!

DREAM BIG said...

It is the shock and horror that the powers that be play upon. What about the children? Is always the refrain, so that truth and reality become covered by mindless emotion. Of course you care about the victims, this is what the blog is all about. To warn and inform.

Satan counts on blind emotion to cloud thinking. You can care and still tell the truth.

One of the things I noticed was the defiant attitude quoted in the media. "you can't stop us", "we will come back". , The defiant singing of God bless America. Like that will stop the crazies. No stories of prayer or asking God or thanking God for keeping people alive and safe.

There was a story on NPR about a chapel where people have gone. The "pastor" said people come for the grey stones and the stained glass to find relief. What?. How can stones help anyone, maybe they went to pray. Psalm 115. Stones can't save. This pastor was very careful not to mention prayer or God.

It is too eerie how the thread of defiance runs through Boston and west Texas. The mayor of west Texas said "we will rebuild". Shades of the Harbinger, Isaiah 9:11

I'm sad, not glad to see this all happen. I hate that hearts are harden and that people are murdered. I mourn for what will happen because of our collective sin.

I pray everyday for grace and mercy for us all.

M.L.

Hello Kevin,

Thank you for your humble response. I appreciate that you explained why you are sensitive to this issue of showing compassion to those who suffer the assaults of others. You are able to go beyond sympathy, to actually empathize with those who have lost loved ones to violence. Yahweh uses the suffering we have experienced to equip us to comfort others in their afflictions.

II Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Yahweh has used my experiences to make me sensitive to groups of people that you are perhaps not as sensitive to, and vice versa. Because I have twice been put in jail, I can empathize with the difficult conditions faced by men who spend their days confined, surrounded by ungodliness, separated from family and friends, while suffering loneliness. I have seen firsthand that there are a remnant in prison who are hungering for spiritual truth. These same ones rarely encounter any Bible teaching beyond the elementary things Paul described as milk.

Because I was afflicted in the same way, I am likely to be more sensitive to this type of suffering than a Christian who has not experienced it. The Spirit has put a yearning within me to minister to those in prison. I have spent hundreds of hours putting together a series of newsletters that contain meat for the spiritually hungry. Dozens of men in prison receive these newsletters every week. Even at this rate, it will take a man a year and a half to go through all the teachings I have put together. I receive correspondence from prisoners telling me how much they look forward to receiving the newsletters, and how their spirit is being fed.

It would be wrong for me to suggest that every other believer should put as much time and effort into comforting men in prison as I do. Let every saint be led of the Spirit and they will find opportunities where they are to minister the comfort and life of Christ to others. Some go to the hospitals, some to nursing homes, some raise foster children or adopt the orphaned. I have friends who daily minister to the homeless, the drug addicts, alcoholics, and prostitutes. It would be wrong for them to condemn me for not laboring among the population they serve, even as it would be wrong for me to condemn them for not attending as much to the needs of prisoners as I have been led to do.

I ask for your patience as I explain something about the ministry of writing the Father has called me to. I have always been a topical writer. I address an issue with a specific goal in mind. I do not try to address every subject related to an event, or to a passage of Scripture. I have found that the most effective writing is that which is constrained to a specific teaching goal. When I wrote about the Boston Marathon bombing, I did not seek to cover every issue related to what occurred. Having compassion for the victims is one of a great many topics that arise out of this event.

Because I am a topical writer, when I write about compassion for those suffering, I am likely to devote an entire writing to the subject, not mixing it in with any other thought or idea, for that would lessen the impact of the message. We can be so broad in our approach that readers lose focus. It is my personal conviction that writings are most effective when they are tightly focused on a specific goal.

I will fall short of other people’s expectations if it is their conviction that every writing that mentions calamity, tragedy, or human suffering, must contain a certain percentage of space expressing sadness and remorse for those affected. It is very difficult to write effectively when one is burdened with an imposed need to be politically, socially, or religiously correct.

May Yahweh minister abundant comfort to you, for He too knows the pain and anguish of losing a son to violent men.

Thank You Joseph, the god of this world, Satan is working overtime,and your insights are spot on. It's very hard to watch prophecy unfold, our hearts will break time and time again. I pray for comfort, strength, and guidance for all.

I do not think at this point, we will have much time to feel sad. Good Post JH

Mariel said...

I'm impressed by the exchange between Joseph and Kevin. I too have lost a child. He is not dead. He is a secular humanist, which he acquired because he was sent to secular humanist and elite schools from kindergarten through Ph.D. This is very sad too. I pray for his salvation. I endure his many atheist "forwards" in e-mails, his celebration of gay marriage (he is not gay but he thinks it is wonderful for everyone to be equal). I was powerless to stop him becoming a secular humanist because his life and his education were not entirely in my hands, as I was a single mother who depended on help from her secular humanist parents. So now I pray for my child who is grown. Every person you see was once a child. So pray for all.

ray said...

thanks joseph and kevin

a couple days ago i got very emotional about a related matter, involving the torture of a little boy -- an increasingly common event in modern, fatherless america

so, that was it for the rest of THAT day

i interact with such issues frequently, so if i got emotional and grief-stricken each time, i'd never accomplish any works, or even begin them

joseph is on the front lines of a war, it's very real and will get much worse

joseph's heart is between himself and God, he and others must have discretion to report in their own ways WHY our God permitted this (or any other event) to happen

given joseph's experiences at the hands of babylon, his demeanor is admirable

kevin, like joseph i hope that in these dark times you are about Father's business, if so be assured that He will restore your son to you, God is not a thief of his own people, he knows about fatherhood and loss

fear no bomb, there is plenty of comfort to be had in these last hours, for those who will have it

Joseph Herrin said...

A word of admonition to those posting comments:

I have often expressed that Yahweh has not directed me to host a discussion forum. I see many dangers and failings in the discussion forum format. With few exceptions, I will not post comments that are anonymous as I believe Christians should own up to their words. Anonymity leads to carnality in communication.

Although I welcome sincere criticism, or disagreement, it is my belief that comment fields are not the best place to air them. My e-mail address is listed on the blog, and private communication is a much better choice for these types of exchanges.

If I sense a person is merely on a rant, and is not seeking any sincere interchange, I often delete their comments rather than posting them. People who flame others are close-minded, and discussion will not profit them.

In some instances, however, such as the above exchange with Kevin, I post the comments and my replies as I sense the person may be open to a patient discussion. I still believe e-mail would be a better forum for such communications to take place. When a person gives only a first name, and no e-mail address, my only options are to answer them through the comment field, or delete their comment, leaving them wondering why it did not get posted.

Some would be offended that I did not post their comment, or answer them when they express sincere objections or criticism, so it is a judgment call whether I should do so.

I invite the readers of this blog to be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit, knowing we must give an account of every idle word we speak. Consider whether it might be the will of Christ to address a matter privately with a brother when you are offering criticism, for it is just as easy to send an e-mail as it is to post a comment.

Great writing brother herrin. I knew it was a false flag the minute I saw it! that APRIL sign was great insight and sent chills through my body!

yup said...

Excellent commentary and vision as always into whom and where we are.
The” Feet Of Clay” is who America is, the bombing in Boston by immigrants is parallel to the Revolutionary war,. The Marathon is an event involving the legs and primarily the feet, the bombing injuries focused on the lower extremities. This possibly is a symbol of the start of something of Biblical proportions. Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet of iron and clay, and break them into pieces. Without hands is “supernaturally” it happens, and the statue is crushed like chaff on the SUMMER threshing floors and there is a division (Daniel 2:41 the kingdom shall be divided). There is the window of opportunity opened by hasatan and it has begun in the spring and will become angry in the summer.
This I guess is a start of a spiritual season revolution.

LSW said...

Joseph,
Interesting that a Mercedes was the alledged getaway car that the one brother stole to escape from the police. He also ran his brother over with the car and killed him in the ensuing action. (or so they say) The brother against brother idea comes to visit once again. Wow- these guys are sick and twisted.
