Joel - Part 3


In this series of articles, we shall be meditating on the book of Joel and what God is shouting to today's deaf generation through Joel's prophecy.



The 1998 bridge year

The Hivite who will not be denied his pleasure

The start of a peculiar group

The Perizzite-Canaanite who could not shout "No"

A Girgashite/Jebusite mirage

Forceful last-step persuasion

Snatching something before it is completely lost

An artistic teacher with a Canaanite door

A bird in the hand

A group with a hidden spiritual blueprint

Philadelphia dreaming against Perizzite-Hittite forces

The Swedish connection

Transformation-fighting lupus

Just the right amount

The matriarchal river of perennial backsliding

The angelic Swedish miracle

The Canaanite followers of "mother earth"

Escape from devouring blackness

The 1998 bridge year

So far, we have talked about the first 2 generations referred to in Joel 1:2:


"Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?" (Joel 1:2)


The "fathers" of the "old men", or elders, point to the generation of 1948-1978, and the "old men" themselves point to the generation of 1978-1998. The "inhabitants of the land" (whose "fathers" are the "old men") are the generation that we shall be focusing on here.


As a parenthesis, it is worth noting that we have, in the previous postings, ended each period with the year prior to the year when the next period starts. For example, we have referred to the first period as going from 1948 to 1977 and the second period as going from 1978 to 1997. However, we believe that each period actually starts around the Passover of the first year. In other words, the first period actually went from Passover 1948 to Passover 1978, and the second period went from Passover 1978 to Passover 1998. This means that the first few weeks of 1978, for example, belonged to the first period and the remaining weeks to the second period. Because of this, we shall from now on include the "bridge" year in both periods. We had not done so previously to emphasise how each bridge year started with the anticipation of a new period being birthed that year, but we shall now emphasise the transitional year of each bridge year, given that it starts with something old and ends with something new.


1998 was a very significant year in the spirit realm, especially because it was the "Year of Jubilee" (Leviticus 25:8-12) for the literal nation of Israel, given that it turned 50 on May 14, 1998. As we have shared before, the number "50" speaks of an outpouring of the Spirit, which explains why, on that year, something broke in the Earth's spiritual atmosphere and a longing for something new emerged. This was spurred in the natural by the fact that the year 2000 was in the horizon, marking the start of a new millennium (the controversy over whether the 3rd millennium actually started in 2001 as opposed to 2000 is irrelevant here, though this writer must argue that it started in 2000).


As the world progressed towards 1998, a new musical style emerged. After the creative, black-horse spurt of the 1980s and early 1990s wore off, new artists appeared, singing to music that had a fresh and different beat to it. These artists included people such as Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC. Even though it is difficult to prove this statement in a simple and straightforward manner, this writer can confidently declare that these artists' music had a "longing" quality to it. Even if at times the lyrics seemed about "silly things", the beat and the vocal pitch transitions evoked a sense of hope, a sense of longing for something new rising in the horizon. Dear reader, this is the sort of thing that you either see or you don't, and this writer prays that the Holy Spirit will provide you with some sort of testimony to the veracity of the previous statement.


The start of a peculiar group

Even though this is not a full-blown proof of the above, the way these artists appeared on the scene is a testimony of the "hope anointing" on them. As described on, the Backstreet Boys started when 2 young Orlando kids met through a mutual vocal coach and decided that they were to form a singing group, prompting them to find a 3rd member in Nick Carter through auditions. Two future members were Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell, both from Lexington, Kentucky. As indicated on, Kevin Richardson grew up in a log cabin at Cathedral Domain Camp, a church-owned youth camp run by his father, who worked there as a camp counsellor. Kevin Richardson showed a strong interest in singing and performing from an early age, singing in his Christian church's choir starting as a child and performing often at his neighbourhood and high school theatre.


As indicated on, Kevin Richardson graduated high school in 1989, working that summer at Pizza Hut and some tobacco farms as he debated on what to do next. The following year, his father encouraged him to quit his job and move all the way to Orlando, Florida with a friend named Jimmy. This shows Kevin's and his father's openness to God's Spirit of Philadelphia, the Spirit of Dreams and Visions that prompts you to dream of great things even whilst in a state of "village smallness". Sadly, his father passed away after a two-year battle with cancer in 1991, when Kevin was 19. It is interesting, therefore, that his father made no effort to use his disease as a way to keep his son near him, meaning that he was more interested in his son's future than in his own needs. It could be said that his father's death was a prophetic sacrifice to take with him any Girgashite influences in his ancestral lineage that would have worked to hinder and stifle his son's anointing. Thus, the strong anointing that can be perceived on his son's (and Backstreet Boys') music is a reflection of this sacrifice. Even so, it must be said that Kevin decided to move back to Kentucky from Orlando when he found out (from his mother) that his father was sick and that his condition had taken a turn for the worse (his father and his family had kept his condition a secret to prevent it interfering with Kevin's pursuit of his dreams).


Through a series of circumstances (partially described on, Kevin found out that a group of "three guys a cappella all the time" were looking for more singers, so he auditioned and was accepted into the group. Since the group was looking for another member, Kevin spoke to Brian Littrell who then auditioned and was also accepted into the group.


As indicated on, a 5th member of the group, Burk Parsons, resigned his place in the group to pursue his desire to be a Christian music minister. When the position in the group opened up, Kevin went to Kentucky to speak to Brian Littrell, his first cousin (on his mother's side). Kevin went to Littrell's high school and called him out of his American History class to encourage him to audition for the group. Even though Littrell also aspired to be a music minister, he saw this opportunity as coming from God, so he flew to Orlando the next day to audition and was accepted into the group. Littrell finished high school by correspondence the next year, in 1994. Littrell's willingness to drop everything and even interrupt his "regularly scheduled programming" means that he was not bound by Girgashite tendencies that focus more on following the pre-established procedure than in pursuing long-term projects. The fact that he did finish high school the next year shows that he left high school, not out of a lazy disregard for his education, but out of an awareness that he needed to focus on the long term and the future than on the short term and the past. This is why it is no coincidence that he was called out whilst in the middle of an American history class, since teachers (and Girgashites, who are teachers gone astray) tend to focus on the past. By allowing God to interrupt his schedule and his look at the past, he effectively told God that he was willing to embrace His prophetic anointing (the antithesis of the Girgashite spirit).


A Girgashite/Jebusite mirage

Many believers would immediately say that Burk Parsons, the band member who dropped out and opened a spot for Littrell, was the one who performed the true prophetic sacrifice when he chose to bypass "fame and fortune" to "truly serve the Lord". However, such believers would actually be speaking from an anti-prophetic, Girgashite spirit when saying this. Why? Because such an opinion is based on the matriarchal assumption that you can only "serve the Lord" when you are performing religious work within the matriarchal system, under the covering of an "ordained pastor". As indicated on (in an article praising Parsons' "sacrifice"), Parsons became increasingly uneasy about staying in the band because he had qualms about "pop music and dancing" and because his mother "felt an uneasiness". So, after receiving a "word of caution" from the principal of his Christian high school, he decided that "you can't serve God and the world at the same time".


Without knowing anything else, it would be theoretically possible that God did have different plans for Parsons and that, for some reason, Littrell was the one intended for the band from the beginning, which would mean that Parsons was sowing an additional prophetic sacrifice into the group by yielding his spot to Littrell. However, Parsons' justifications make it evident that he was not acting under the prophetic guidance of the Holy Spirit but was, instead, following the instructions of Girgashite spirits. Why? Because, for one, he saw "dancing" as a source of concern, which immediately brings to mind the following passages:


"12 And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness. 13 And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. 14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. 16 And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart." (2 Samuel 6:12-16)


"20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! 21 And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD. 22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour. 23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death." (2 Samuel 6:20-23)


Some would argue, "the passage above talks about dancing for the Lord, so it cannot be applied to Parsons' situation". However that argument ignores a spiritual reality. Many Christians' resistance to "dancing" is not limited to "dancing in a secular environment"; it is a resistance to any form of dancing. This writer knows of congregations -- and even belonged to one between 1995 and Passover 1998 --- where it is considered a "sin" to "dance" or "jump up and down", even if it is at church during the time of praise and worship, and where even a spontaneous shout of "Hallelujah!" or "Glory to God" in Church is deemed "inappropriate" and "of the flesh". This resistance to "dancing" or "shouting" is a manifestation of a Girgashite/Jebusite spirit of religiosity that disdains people allowing themselves to flow in the freedom and the unscripted flow of the Holy Spirit. Thus, the fact that Parsons raised "dancing" as one of the reasons why he became concerned about staying with the band is more a reflection of Girgashite contamination than an openness to God's prophetic voice.


The fact that "pop music" was another big source of "uneasiness" for Parsons is another red flag of Girgashite contamination. This writer must share that, when I joined the "no dancing" congregation in 1995 mentioned above, I became increasingly "uneasy" about "pop music" and began to partially abstain from it, feeling a twinge of gnawing guilt when I would listen to it. Even so, I did continue to listen to it until the Lord called me to join a different congregation during Passover 1998. Ironically, this other congregation, which had absolutely no issue with dancing, jumping up and down, and shouting "Hallelujah!" at Church, had an issue with "secular music". Even though it was not explicitly condemned, many of the members, including some of the ones that I would talk to, would speak of how "evil" it was to listen to the "world's music". The guilt became so strong that I eventually abandoned "secular music" altogether, listening only to explicitly "Christian" music. Deep inside of me, I felt that there was something wrong with following this well-intended advice from my fellow church members, but I always attributed my inner concern to the "enemy" trying to confuse me. However, one afternoon in 2003, whilst sitting at my desk at work, I found out that Maurice Gibb, one of the Bee Gees brothers, had passed away. I remember how, at that moment, it was as if the voice of God thundered loudly within me, and He said to me,

"Why? Why did you listen to them and not to Me? You were supposed to pray for that man and to help him fulfil his prophetic calling from Me? But, instead, you were too busy following religious advice to find out that he was sick and that I had an assignment for you about him."

This thundering voice within me took me by surprise, and it shook me so deeply that I had to literally run to the bathroom, close the door, and sob uncontrollably, kneeling on the bathroom floor, begging God to forgive me for what I had done and for not having prayed for that man. My sobbing was so intense, and it came from such a deep place, that I had to make an effort to control it, for fear that my boss, whose office was nearby, would hear my sobbing. It was after this that I realised that all I had been doing was following the commandments of men (Mark 7:7), commandments not based on Scripture but on human religiosity that had an appearance of devotion but were not inspired by God. After that experience, I stopped subjecting myself to the human decree that God is not in something unless He is explicitly mentioned and unless it is officially approved by a well-recognised minister.


"20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh." (Colossians 2:20-23)


"27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all." (1 Corinthians 15:27-28)


"15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." (Ephesians 1:15-23)


"23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority? 24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him? 26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet. 27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things." (Matthew 21:23-27)


Another telling sign that Parsons was not acting in the Spirit, but was instead acting in the flesh, is the fact that he was "pushed over the edge" to abandon the group by the advice of the principal of his Christian high school. As we have shared before, Girgashites are very hierarchy-oriented, strongly believing in the importance of following the chain of command and in trusting people based on visible labels of seniority, authority and "expertise". It is true that God can speak through people with a visible title, but the question remains: Would Parsons have followed the advice of a stranger younger than him if that stranger had said the exact same words as the principal? Would he have heeded the same advice had it come from a substitute teacher who had only taught at that school a couple of times? This writer would dare say that the answer is a definite "No". The fact that the advice came from the person with the highest title at his high school is the Spirit's subtle way of emphasising that Parsons was making judgements based on natural, visible parameters and not the parameters of the Spirit. If you read the brief testimony about Parsons posted on (linked to earlier), you will see that its "proof" that Parsons made the right decision relies on throwing ministerial names and titles at the reader. According to that post, Parsons is "now the co-pastor of St. Andrew's Church" and his calling is, in his own words, "to serve the flock of God as a pastor to equip God's people for ministry". In other words, Parsons has become nothing more than a run-of-the-mill pastor, another cog in the pastoral matriarchy "elite" who claim that they are the chosen class put on this Earth to equip God's people. Is he equipping them in apostolic judgements and wisdom? Is he equipping them in prophetic visions and spiritual sacrifice? Is he equipping them in evangelistic conquest and dominion of the environment around them? Of course not! He is equipping them to sing in the choir, teach shallow lessons at Sunday school, organise and work in charity events, and, on occasions, "evangelise" unbelievers with weak and effeminate words that beg the unsaved to "pretty please accept Jesus" (when, in truth, it is the unbelievers who should be begging Yeshua to accept them). Where in Scripture does it say that the pastor is the one designated to equip believers in all that they need? Ephesians 4 emphasises pastors so much when it speaks of equipping the saints that it mentions them in 4th place, not even mentioning them separately but lumping them together with teachers (at least in the original Greek text)! Cursed are those who are satisfied with a stale pseudo-Christianity that keeps people in spiritual stagnation and sterility! Cursed are those who think that Christianity is defined and completely contained within superficial church activities! Had the Primitive Church been filled with people content with the superficial spiritual understanding of people such as Burk Parsons, Christianity would have been wiped off of human history by the Roman Empire after a decade or two, becoming unworthy of a passing mention in the history class that Brian Littrell was pulled out of.


The post also tries to validate Parsons' decision to leave the Backstreet Boys (and to reject an offer from 'N Sync that came later) by stating that "many of the members of the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync wound up in drug or alcohol rehab centre". However, the post fails to clarify that only one of the Backstreet Boys, A.J. McLean, ended up struggling with drug addiction (during the band's full-time, success period), making it sound instead as if the entire band would engage in collective "drug orgies". One can only wonder whether Burk Parsons could have served as a positive Christian influence on McLean had he stayed with the band. This writer believes so, and, if this is correct, then Burk Parsons is accountable for not being there when McLean needed him, being instead in another place doing things that anybody else could have done in his place because they do not require any extraordinary gifts or abilities. It could be that, of all the band members, Burk Parsons had the perfect set of spiritual gifts to get through to McLean and prevent him falling, but we will never know, since he chose the safer route, the route with the least spiritual risk but also with the least spiritual harvest. There are millions of ordinary pastors like Burk Parsons in the world. His contribution in God's Kingdom is minimal at best. Sadly for him, Parsons fails to understand the transformational spiritual power that was unleashed into the atmosphere through the Backstreet Boys' music, a power that set the spiritual stage for many things that God began to do in the spirit realm, including in this writer's life. This writer prays that, by the end of this posting, you will perceive why the previous statement, outrageous as it may seem to the matriarchal "Christian", is actually a word from the Lord God of Israel Himself to whomever is willing to hear Him.


The post's subtle insinuation that the Backstreet Boys were a group laden with moral decay that would have corrupted Burk Parsons' spiritual growth is also invalidated with what other group members did after they left the group. Kevin Richardson, for example, went on to have a rather straightforward, "non-scandalous" acting career, mostly in plays. He married a fellow actress whom he met whilst working together at Disney World in 1992; they had broken up but eventually got back together, marrying each other in 2000; this clearly does not sound like a womaniser corrupted by the female attention that the group received during its peak years. Interestingly, Kevin's first film was a 2009 Christian drama called "Love takes wing", where he played the part of a man named Cyrus. Again, this does not sound like a man who fell away from Christianity due to the "worldly" influence of the group.


Snatching something before it is completely lost

After his full-time commitment with the band, Brian Littrell committed to his initial mission of being a Christian music minister (in the more literal definition of the term). As indicated on, he signed a deal with Reunion Records in 2004, starting the recording of a solo album called "Welcome Home" in late 2005. This writer must declare that the title "Welcome Home" is personally very meaningful, for, after an almost 20-year absence, I was able to set foot in New York City on the 5th of November of 2005, and I knew that my almost miraculous return signified that New York and America were entering a new phase of potential growth and increased accountability. Sadly, I was only able to stay in New York until the next St. Patrick's Day, 17 March 2006, after which Lord banished me to a difficult Azazel desert journey during which my life practically lost all hope. But, once again, against all odds, the Lord God of Israel supernaturally pulled me from the depths of the Sheol I was mired in and allowed me to set foot in New York City once again after over 31 months, on 26 October 2008, 10 days before the American Republic died on 5 November 2008, when the American people stupidly elected the impostor barack hussein obastard as WHoResident (i.e.- White House Resident) of the United States. Even though I had to leave for Pasadena, California, near the Mojave Desert, it was only for a season and under less tormenting circumstances, and the Lord allowed me to return to New York on 20 September 2013, 46 days before the worthless population of New York elected bill deCommio (a.k.a. bill deblasio), New York's version of obastard, to City Hall on 5 November 2013 by a shamefully overwhelming majority. That day was the beginning of the death of New York's calling, meaning that, just as in 2005, the Lord allowed this writer to return to New York just before the death of something, as if to snatch something away just before the enemy could take it all and obliterate any potential hope. This writer shares all of this to emphasise how spiritually significant it was for Brian Littrell to release an album called "Welcome Home" in 2005, as if prophetically welcoming this writer back to New York as God was about to embark New York and America on a new stage of their calling. Even though the song and album were not released until May 2006, when I was at the start of my banishment, the fact that they were in America's spiritual atmosphere contributed to the paving of the spiritual path that allowed me to return to America in 2008. This writer remembers that, on 18 October 2013, on my 29th day of having returned to the New York area and still unemployed, I was sent by the Lord (through His prophet) to a Taco Bell in a place I had never been to before, and, when I sat down to eat my order, Phillip Phillips' song "Home" began to play over the loudspeaker, and I knew then and there that God, in His lovingkindness, was going to cement a place for this writer in the New York area after so many years of wandering and struggling against impossible odds. This writer is now going on 10 years of continuous residence in the New York area since then, to the glory of God Almighty, even though it feels as if the time for my stay is coming to a close as this writer prepares to either exit this world or exit the Americas in the near future now that the Americas have turned into a wasteland of dead dreams and visions (only Brazil seems to remain alive, but this writer has no clue as to what will be of her).


As a parenthesis, someone may ask, "If all that you are saying is spiritually correct, what was the point of you being sent to 'snatch certain things away' before the enemy could destroy all vestiges of hope if New York City and America are on their way to dying later this year (2023) anyway, as shared repeatedly in your audio snippets?" The answer is twofold. For one, the Lord's love is so profound that He is willing to do all that is possible to rescue those whom He loves, leaving no stone unturned and no option 'untried', even if He knows the final outcome right from the beginning. Why? Because He is faithful to Himself, and He will follow through with the entire spiritual process to fulfil all that His truth and judgements require. Also, by following through with the full process, He leaves a trail of evidence so that, on the day of Judgement, no one can say, "Well, God, I did not know. I could have reacted differently had you given me a chance", for God will then reply, "Unfaithful fool, I gave you every possible chance under My Sun, and I have it on tape how you reacted each time, never fully surrendering to what I had for you. Depart from Me, worker of iniquity who valued your ancestors and yourself more than you did Me. I loved you over and over again, but your actions showed once and again that you did not love Me back." The second part of the answer is the fact that, even though all hope for New York and America was eventually lost, it was necessary for "God's crew" to rescue certain things, which America disdained and ignored, so that they could be taken elsewhere and allowed to fulfil their eternal destiny at a future time.


"10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off." (Isaiah 55:10-13)


"13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he." (Genesis 6:13-22)


It is also interesting to this writer that I was given a chance by the Lord to return to the East Coast (of America), even if it was not to New York proper, on 3 occasions in the mid-1990s, in 1995, 1996, and 1997, sponsored by my employer (without requesting it) to attend some conferences in, of all places, Orlando, Florida, where the Backstreet Boys had their start. As indicated on, the Backstreet Boys had their start between 1993 and 1995 and had their debut album and launch to worldwide fame between 1996 and 1997. This means that the Lord sent this writer to Orlando on the last year of Backstreet Boys' preparation period in Orlando and then on the 2 years that launched them to stardom. Regardless of what you, dear reader, may think about all of this, this writer is convinced that none of this is a "coincidence" and that it reinforces the Backstreet Boys' connection to the transformational spiritual currents that God was creating in the Earth's atmosphere at the time.


A bird in the hand

Just to emphasise how "contaminated by the world" Brian Littrell became after his time with the Backstreet Boys, consider what he said in an article posted on on 23 October 2006: "I think as Christians we need to join hands and mount up together and lift God up and talk about our faith publicly and talk about all of the things God has done for us in our life to touch other people.". According to a "Christianity Today" article posted on 10 October 2007 (and retrieved on 26 October 2007 by the Wikipedia editor who included it in the Wikipedia article about Littrell), Littrell has been born again since the age of 8, i.e.- way before he joined the Backstreet Boys and way before he stopped singing with them full-time, meaning that he saw his time on the Backstreet Boys as a continuation of his Christian walk. He also shared in an article posted on "secular" that he attributes his success in life to God and that his faith has always been "the utmost important thing" in his life. Again, does this sound like a person "spiritually corrupted" by his time with the Backstreet Boys, or does it even sound like a "prodigal son" who temporarily "lost his way" when he joined the group and who now regrets his time with them, having asked God for "forgiveness" for his "ill-advised spiritual detour"? Just as with Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell's testimony post-Backstreet-Boys reveals that Burk Parsons' and his advisers' assessment of the Backstreet Boys is tainted with a false-witness spirit that transgresses the 9th commandment and is born out of a Girgashite desire to "play it safe", deeming it better to be "safe than sorry". To quote a comedy show re-run that I "coincidentally" watched today, "A bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush makes for a very dirty hand".


What "believers" such as Burk Parsons and friends do not understand is that growth and reaching new dimensions is always fraught with risk and that the risk taken is not proved invalid or against God's will just because things went "horribly wrong". Dear reader, if these words sound "earthly" and not from God, consider the Genesis 6 passage quoted above, and consider further what the Spirit of God says a few verses earlier:


"5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them." (Genesis 6:5-7)


Humanly speaking, God took a "great risk" when He created man and gave him free will and authority on Earth to act like gods (Genesis 1:26-28, Psalm 82:6-8). And, as can be seen from the results in Noah's times, and even today, things have not gone "too well", have they? Things have gone so badly, in fact, that God "repented" of having made man, just as He is repenting now of having given birth to America, a nation that is now overrun with deranged anti-Christian liberals and recalcitrant "Christian" conservatives. So, just as He flooded the Earth in the days of Noah, He is and shall continue to flood America to death in these latter days of Noah (even though the flood on America shall not always be as literal as the one that hit the Earth millennia ago). Why, then, did man have to be created and why did America have to be placed on this Earth? And why was there a need to give both man in general and America in particular such free rein over their actions? Because God's ultimate purposes for man and this Earth were impossible to achieve without taking such a risk. A controlled human experiment and a "properly regulated" American project would have led to "acceptable" results where evil would have been under control and where mankind and America would have never been able to commit the unrighteous atrocities and stubborn foolishness that they have committed and are still committing. However, those controlled results would have also meant that man's and America's potential would have been stunted from birth, and man's and America's achievements would have been permanently restricted, eternally incapable of achieving the levels that God could have looked down on and said, "That is good". God cannot have true sons and daughters capable of manifesting the fullness of His nature without taking the risk. Controlled, "low-risk" projects cannot produce humans capable of housing and manifesting the uncontainable nature of Almighty God.


"8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." (Colossians 2:8-9)


Burk Parsons was afraid to answer God's calling to release an extraordinary anointing into the atmosphere because he deemed the risk of "worldly contamination" to be too high. Therefore, he chose to heed advise from satan as satan took the form of "proper" religious men that spewed out judgements about "righteousness" and about music that were based on fleshly parameters that God never defined. In the same way, the American Church, especially her avant-garde believers, were so afraid of "false teachings" that they rejected God's latter-rain message, a message that was announced through "uncertified" agents of "obscure" origin. It was safer to "just stay the way we were", even if "the way we were" was not perfect and was clearly not working to stop the enemy's assault against America. "I would rather die with my gifts and talents intact than risk them in uncertain ventures beyond my current understanding. God will not mind. He will in fact applaud me because He is very strict about certain things, and I would not want to get Him angry at me."


"24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 25:24-30)


Philadelphia dreaming against Perizzite-Hittite forces

Even though Kevin Richardson's and Brian Littrell's life testimony is more than enough to discredit Burk Parsons' advisers' assessment of the Backstreet Boys' "worldly contamination", it is important to consider the other band members' lives in order to have a fuller picture of the band's spiritual nature. As indicated on, band member Howie Dorough was born in Orlando, Florida to a father of Irish descent and a mother of Puerto Rican descent. As indicated on, he would be approached by hispanic kids at school who would start to speak to him in Spanish (due to his partially hispanic appearance), only to hear Howie respond "No hablo español". This would lead to stares filled with disdain and demands that he not be ashamed of his "heritage". This bullying, carried out by worthless third-world rubbish that were apparently unaware that they were in America, not mexico, affected Howie, making him insecure about his identity and who he was supposed to be. The bullying and insecurities in Howie's young life were compounded by his shorter stature and by his falsetto voice range. Even so, he persevered, aware that his identity was not to be found in being a "hispanic" but in pursuing the calling that he felt within him, the calling to be a singer and entertainer, which is why he eagerly embraced every opportunity to sing and act in plays during his childhood and teenage years.


Despite his desire to pursue his drive to sing and act, Howie Dorough was forced to struggle with shyness issues that attempted to cripple him into Perizzite lameness. As indicated on, he would spend summer days as a kid hiding in the pool's changing shed because he was embarrassed to be seen in swimming trunks. He would also "go to school praying that he wouldn't have to sing in music class". He was also terrified when a teacher would ask him to speak in front of the class, being overwhelmed by a flood of nerves and anxiety that "would sweep over him and manifest in stutters and misread words". Hence, it is evident that Dorough was hounded by Perizzite and Hittite spirits that were working together, determined to prevent him realising any big dreams or visions.


As indicated on, these spirits tried to deal Dorough's dreams a decisive blow one day when his choir teacher asked him to perform the National Anthem at his high school's basketball game. He agreed to do it but forgot the words as he stood in front of everyone to sing. He could have accepted this incident as evidence that he was not "cut out to be a singer", and he could have determined to avoid accepting any future invitations to sing before an audience to avoid the clear risk of another public humiliation. However, Dorough refused to take the "safe" route, choosing instead to sing "Unchained Melody" at his school talent show. This time, the results were different, receiving a standing ovation when he hit the song's high note, with many of the girls in the audience tearing up over his performance. This strong emotional response is evidence of the strong Philadelphia Spirit anointing on Dorough that day, an anointing that broke through the Perizzite and Hittite spirits who had thought that they had completed the abortion of Dorough's future.


In 1991, he was selected as "Most Talented" and graduated from Edgewater High School in the Top 10 of his class, meaning that he was not only succeeding artistically but also had a spirit of academic excellence in him. This points to the teacherly Spirit of Sardis, God's Spirit of Perfection, which correlates with his Celtic roots from his father's side, for, as we have shared before, the Celtic peoples, especially the Irish, have a strong combination of the prophetic Spirit of Smyrna and the teacher Spirit of Sardis, a combination that can create a great deal of internal turmoil, given that the endowments from both Spirits can become the other's antithesis when either of them is corrupted.


Transformation-fighting lupus

Interestingly, at one point, due to his mother being Puerto Rican, Dorough auditioned for Menudo, a boy band of Puerto Rican origin. But, by the grace of God, he was not accepted, probably because he was not "Puerto Rican" enough (for it was clearly not for lack of talent). It is likely that Dorough felt led to audition for Menudo to compensate for all those who had constantly questioned his "loyalty" to the hispanic culture. Yet, when you are not truly one of them, they will never fully embrace you, always seeing you as an outsider even if you somewhat look like them (by the way, this is a lesson that RINOs in America refuse to learn regarding demonrats). Thankfully, Dorough was different enough to cause the people behind Menudo to reject him despite his talents, which this writer believes was propelled by God's intervention to save Dorough from his naive but unwise attempt to join Menudo.


In September 1998, just as the Backstreet Boys were reaching the height of their stardom, Dorough's sister Caroline Dorough-Cochran died of lupus, a disease where the immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks healthy tissue in the body. In this case, the disease was a reflection of two things. For one, it points to how hispanics constantly attack those amongst them who are "spiritually healthy". Any transformational agent of reform that is placed within their hispanic midst is always targeted for suppression and destruction by the surrounding hispanics in order to maintain the hispanic "purity" of their values and moral paradigms. This "purity", however, is equivalent to trying to keep excrement 100% "pure" and devoid of any anti-bacterial or anti-stench elements that may deprive it of its "excrementicity". In other words, anyone who attempts to heal hispanics in any significant way is bound to be destroyed by them if he or she persists. The second thing reflected by Dorough's sister's lupus is how the matriarchal Church empowers Jebusite spirits to attack and destroy anyone and anything that has the appearance of "uncleanness", overreacting to things that cause no harm and are actually good. These Jebusite agents, propelled by Canaanite fury, attack God's transformative agents who come to correct what is fundamentally wrong with the Church and to fill in what is missing in it. Because these agents' spirit is different from the one that governs the matriarchal Church, they are perceived as "foreign" to God and tagged for destruction for being "unclean". These are the agents that saw Burk Parsons' involvement with the Backstreet Boys as "unGodly", proceeding, therefore, to neutralise and destroy Parsons' spiritual calling, just like a lupus-infested immune system does to healthy tissue. As America has approached its point of eternal death (which may have already arrived by the time you read this), her immune system is being overrun with lupus more and more. And, once America dies, her immune system will enter into full-blown lupus, just as the hispanic part of Latin America did after it spiritually died on 29 June 2003. When the lupus becomes full-blown, it will become dangerous, both literally and figuratively, to be a seeker of God's full truth in America, meaning that God's remnant will be forced to either keep a very low profile or physically leave the country, the latter being what this writer will endeavour to do if I do not physically die first (either because God decided that my time was up or because I was murdered on the street by some third-world American, which, by then, will no longer be an oxymoron).


Having said the above, the question remains: Why was Dorough's sister, Caroline Dorough-Cochran, struck with lupus? This writer would dare to say that it was a prophetic sacrifice through which the spiritual lupus of the Church and hispanic puerto rico was prevented attacking Dorough's musical career and spiritual calling. Even though the Wikipedia article on Dorough is not too explicit about it, it is clear that Dorough and his family practise catholicism, which can be inferred from several facts. For one, his father was a police officer of Irish descent, making it very likely that he was a practising catholic. Also, the fact that his mother was of puerto-rican descent means that it is very likely that she was at least nominally catholic, as is the case with most people from Latin America. However, what confirms the family's catholicism is the fact that Dorough married his girlfriend of 6 years on 8 December 2007 in a "traditional catholic ceremony at St. James Cathedral, [the same place] where he was baptised and sang choir at in Orlando, Florida", according to This writer believes that this openness to catholicism opened the door to the lupus spirit, given that catholicism has notorious elements of legalistic Jebusite oppression. The fact that Dorough's father was a police officer may have widened Jebusite lupus' door even more, given that police officers in America have historically tended towards Jebusite disrespect of the people they are called to protect (as a result of viewing the public as lower-ranking soldiers that need to be "controlled" and "forced to submit", even when they are dealing with law-abiding citizens, which violates the spiritual principle declared by God in Romans 13:4).


This writer would argue that Burk Parsons' departure from the group also helped to guarantee the death of Dorough's sister. Though not responsible for the Jebusite spirits that had entered Dorough's family through their catholicism (and the father's police work), Parsons was responsible for handling the Jebusite spirits that (successfully) worked to kill Parsons' own musical career by falsely labelling it as "unclean". Had he fought this Jebusite influence and overcome it under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, he would not have only grown as a believer in Christ but he would have lessened the prophetic burden that Dorough's sister was forced to bear against the Jebusite spirit by dealing it a significant defeat. And, with a lighter burden, Dorough's sister may have been able to overcome her lupus and live. It is thus very ironic that, as Parsons endeavoured to escape strong spiritual accusations from the enemy, he ended up heaping upon himself a multitude of accusations from the Spirit of God, including having the prophetically-spilled blood of Dorough's sister on his "religiously clean" hands, just as the Jebusitely-possessed Pharisees got the prophet Yeshua ha Mashiach's blood on their ritually extra-clean hands.


Without going into too many details, this writer believes that a quick reading of Dorough's biography online makes it clear that he was, humanly speaking, a decent young man without any "vices" to speak of, which yet again contradicts the impression that Parsons' advisers and supporters often tried to convey about the Backstreet Boys. Cursed are those who constantly split imaginary hairs to call the clean "unclean" and who have absolutely no problems with the massive spiritual contamination of the matriarchal spirit of Jezebel that defiles and murders the callings of God's children day after day after day.


"23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation." (Matthew 23:23-36)


The matriarchal river of perennial backsliding

Having said all of the above regarding Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, and Howie Dorough, we must now speak about the other 2 members of the Backstreet Boys, who, in truth, left much to be desired by their life and behaviour. Some may want to take these 2 members as "proof" of the group's overall "uncleanness", but that would require denying everything said above about the other 3 members and how their lives show that they were not swayed by the other 2. In fact, it can be argued that, if anything, the 3 "good" members were a positive influence on the other 2 and prevented them declining further than they did.


The first of the 2 "less than perfect" members is Nick Carter. To put it into context, Nick Carter's background and age prior to joining the group was much different than that of the other members. As indicated on, he was only 12 or 13 when he joined the group, making him the youngest by far. Interestingly, he had the choice of either joining the Mickey Mouse Club with a guaranteed US$50,000 contract or joining the Backstreet Boys, which, at the time, was nothing more than an idea with no guarantee of success. To his credit, Nick Carter chose the group over the easy money and notoriety of the Mickey Mouse Club, performing with the group as they went through their humble beginnings in shopping malls, restaurants, and high schools.


Just like the other members of the group, Nick Carter glowed with the anointing to be a performing star from an early age. Perceiving his artistic talents, his mother enrolled him in voice lessons and even dance lessons in ballet, tap, and hip-hop, and the young Nick thrived under the opportunity. His first role was the lead role in a 4th-grade production of the "Phantom of the Opera", and his performance was so remarkable that it drew a standing ovation, with many audience members even crying due to the impact on their souls as they heard Nick singing. This clearly points to the supernatural anointing from God above on his life. Thankfully for him, God had placed him amongst people who were willing to nurture what was in him, enabling him to develop that gift as he (and God) allowed.


Despite having parents who were willing to invest in his talent, Nick and his siblings grew up in what many would call a dysfunctional family due to the constant fighting and violent screaming between his parents. To make things worse, the friends he had growing up were either addicted to drugs, in prison, or killed at a young age, meaning that his performing career became the escape hatch through which he avoided the fate of his friends. The matriarchal Church may not understand this, but, as it constantly aborts the "male-ministry" anointings of God's people, subjugating whatever remains to the pastors' agenda and not God's, they open the door for spiritual influences from the enemy that come to fill the void and complete the destruction of the believer's spiritual destiny. The matriarchal Church often makes futile efforts to "restore" backslidden believers who never seem to get their spiritual act together, all without realising that it is often the Church itself which lays down and carves out the path for the enemy's river of B.S. (BackSliding) against these weak believers by so persistently building soul-centred dams that deny the flow of God's male Spirit river through the Church.


"7 Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that were therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man. 8 And they came unto their brethren to Zorah and Eshtaol: and their brethren said unto them, What say ye? 9 And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land. 10 When ye go, ye shall come unto a people secure, and to a large land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the earth. 11 And there went from thence of the family of the Danites, out of Zorah and out of Eshtaol, six hundred men appointed with weapons of war. 12 And they went up, and pitched in Kirjathjearim, in Judah: wherefore they called that place Mahanehdan unto this day: behold, it is behind Kirjathjearim. 13 And they passed thence unto mount Ephraim, and came unto the house of Micah." (Judges 18:7-13)

[The words above were spoken by the Danites who had not yet been able to conquer the fullness of the inheritance that had been assigned to them in the Promised Land. The name "Dan" literally means "judge", which points to how God's people have been unable to conquer the fullness of what has been allotted to them because the Canaanite, anti-judgement Church keeps preventing them manifesting their "male" nature as judges.]


The Canaanite followers of "mother earth"

When people are blessed with great possibilities, they can use those possibilities for much good, but doors of opportunity for much evil also become available. Sadly, many people take full advantage of those opportunities for evil, Nick Carter being one of them. As mentioned above, Nick Carter was able to escape from the grip of several daemons by being in the Backstreet Boys, daemons that would have certainly destroyed his1 life irreparably before he reached the age of 20. However, instead of embracing this opportunity for freedom and escaping full-throttle from his family's ancestral daemons, he invited some of them back in. According to, Carter was arrested for drunk driving in 2002 or 2004, an incident during which he refused to comply with the police. On 13 March 2005, he was arrested once again for drunk driving in Huntington Beach, California. These arrests evidence the strong presence of the Canaanite spirit in Carter's life, since, as we have shared before, that is the spirit most directly related to addictions such as alcoholism.


The nefarious presence of the Canaanite spirit is also evident when one reads through Carter's biography on Wikipedia, a biography that shows his propensity for seeking interactions with other celebrities and participation in reality shows, as well as the pursuit of "environmental" causes. "Environment" activism is very popular amongst ignorant Canaanites who are too anti-wise to discern the true sources of real environmental contamination, i.e.- third-world cultural values that condone littering and that lead to technological backwardness that prevents the use of (or interest in) less-polluting technologies. Because these Canaanites are unwilling to judge the true polluters of the Earth (e.g.- China, India, and the rest of the third world), they spend their time attacking false sources of contamination (i.e.- petrol and cow emissions), all without realising that attacking these false sources actually causes greater damage to the environment. The root of the unwise understanding of these anti-judgement Canaanites is that they get that understanding from a spirit that they worship, the spirit of "Mother Earth", a matriarchal spirit that turns people into mere pawns at the service of a "higher collective", a collective that will "take care" of them like a "kindly mother" if only they surrender to her and pledge eternal loyalty to her. This "mother Earth" spirit works to undermine God's call to man to take dominion over creation (Genesis 1:26), endeavouring to make man a ("female") maidservant of creation rather than a responsible ("male") king over it.


{As a parenthesis, the word "mother" in "Mother Earth" points to the corrupted pastoral endowment of soothing, Canaanite maternalism, and the word "earth" points to the distorted teacher endowment of Girgashite earthliness}


The Hivite who will not be denied his pleasure

The nefarious influence of the Canaanite "mother earth" spirit only became stronger in Nick Carter's life as the years continued, as evidenced by his arrest on 13 January 2016 at a place called "Hog's Breath Saloon" in Key West, Florida. The arrest stemmed from his attempt to enter the place, which the establishment's bouncers outside prevented due to his "high levels of intoxication". In other words, the bouncers did not want to let him in because he was clearly very drunk and could potentially cause problems inside. Nick Carter, however, was deeply offended by the fact that his wish was not being granted, which led to a violent scuffle and his arrest for "misdemeanour battery". This points to another sinister influence in Carter's life: the Hivite spirit, for, as we have shared before, that spirit prompts people to act like spoilt rich children with a strong sense of entitlement. Being a star idolised by many fans, Nick Carter became convinced that the world "owed him" and was created to fulfil his every desire. As we have also shared before, the Hivite spirit is the main spirit behind rape, which explains why Carter's "legal history" includes accusations of rape.


As this writer read about the allegations listed on, my initial inclination was to believe them, but I had lingering doubts in my mind, given that Carter seemed to have what could be labelled a "congenial" personality, especially when surrounded by his fellow band members. I therefore began to ask the Lord whether the allegations stemmed from lying, gold-digging women or women who had actually been victimised. That is when I felt prompted to go to the Wikipedia page of one of the accusers, Melissa Schuman, who, to be frank, I had never heard of but was apparently a well-known member of a girls group that was famous at the start of the millennium, a group called "Dream" (which I had also never heard of because they arose during the time when I had unwisely distanced myself from "secular" music). What drew my attention was a short 4-word sentence that one of the Wikipedia editors chose to add at the end of the "personal life" section in that article: "Schuman is a Christian". When I read that, I felt a confirmation in the Spirit that she was not lying and that she had indeed been raped by Carter. Interestingly, there was a footnote link at the end of that sentence that pointed to a page on titled "The case for Melissa Schuman Part 1: Assault". The article details the author's thoughts about Schuman's accusations after interviewing her and analysing the details of the alleged assault, as well as the details of Melissa's personal life. The author then argues that Melissa's Christianity and her practice of it make it very clear that she was not lying, especially when considering all the small details that she shared about the assault. This writer must admit that my soul was horrified as I read the article, not because I questioned it but because it exposed the viciousness of Carter's Hivite soul. This writer is convinced in the Spirit that the hideous attack was real and that Carter is a Hivite rapist, even when the article does overstate Melissa's spiritual purity.


The Perizzite-Canaanite who could not shout "No"

The attack on Melissa Schuman happened in 2002, when she was just 18 years old and Carter was around 22. Schuman kept quiet about the assault and only went public about it 15 years later, in November 2017, in the middle of the so-called "Me too" movement, after observing similarities between her assault and another alleged assault from 2006 that was published in 2017 by Radar Online.


Having said the above, there is another side of the accusation that is worth considering. As detailed on websites such as, there are clearly some inconsistencies in Melissa Schuman's actions and words that would indicate that she is lying. Without going into too many details, it is evident that she has behaved towards Nick Carter as if nothing had happened, allegedly following him on Twitter and explicitly/implicitly declaring on multiple occasions (including this video) that she was a fan of the Backstreet Boys' music and that she deemed Nick Carter to be a "talented guy". Her behaviour the night of the incident, which happened with other people in nearby rooms, indicate little resistance to Nick Carter's forceful actions against her. The fact that she waited so many years before making the accusation public (because she had decided that she would wait until someone else also raised similar accusations against Carter, as indicated on, also makes her accusations very questionable. Does that, however, mean that she was lying and that the rape never happened? After fervently asking the Lord for understanding, this writer came to realise that the answer is "Yes and no", which is why the truth behind the incident is so difficult to discern.


When observing Melissa Schuman in videos and reading some of her words, it becomes clear that she has a very soft Perizzite will and has a Canaanite tendency to do and say what she believes will please others, abstaining from anything that may create discomfort in others or cause others to not "like her" anymore. This Perizzite-Canaanite influence in her life causes her to embrace a "little-mouse" persona that has a hard time being a forceful judge of others. As a result, she always avoids making categorical judgements about others, always endeavouring to see the "good side" in people, even when they seem clearly evil to her, especially if she sees others having a favourable opinion of them. All of this stems not only from her own natural personality but from the unrighteous nurturing she received in the matriarchal Church during her "Christian" upbringing, given that the matriarchal Church is controlled by Canaanite nursing pastors who endeavour to disable the "male" spirit nature of the "laymen" believers "under" them.


Thus, when Carter and Melissa Schuman met on the night of the incident, it was the encounter between a forceful and entitled Hivite-Canaanite and a very submissive and weak Perizzite-Canaanite. It is clear from everyone's version of events that Melissa willingly went with others to Carter's place and that she willingly engaged in physical "amorous" actions with him. However, as things progressed, Carter saw his "opportunity" to take advantage of her, and she lacked the character to forcefully stop the course of events, even when she had multiple chances to do so, and even when the course of events were against her will.


Forceful last-step persuasion

Had she been exposed to a more "male", spirit-centred environment, she would have been aware (literally and/or spiritually) to passages such as the following:


"23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you. 25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die: 26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter: 27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her. 28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; 29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days." (Deuteronomy 22:23-29)


Notice how the Spirit of God puts the onus on the woman to "cry", i.e.- scream, when in the middle of a situation where she is being forced to do something against her will. The word "force" in verse 25 was slightly mistranslated from the Hebrew word hazaq, which literally means "to be strong, to prevail". This is the same word that appears, for the first time in Scripture, in verse 16 of the following passage, translated as "laid hold":


"15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. 17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed." (Genesis 19:15-17)


Notice that hazaq does not necessarily have the connotation of a violent and forcible imposition on a completely unwilling participant. As described in the passage above, Lot "lingered", not because he was completely opposed to the angels and to leaving Sodom but because he had an emotional attachment to Sodom and to the life he was suddenly being exhorted to give up, and this attachment was preventing him moving forward with his exit. Thus, hazaq is being used here in the context of convincing someone to take the final step that he or she is having doubts about.


The second time that hazaq appears is in verse 18 of the following passage, translated as "hold":


"14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. 15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. 17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. 18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. 19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. 20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. 21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt." (Genesis 21:14-21)


Notice how hazaq is used by God to tell Hagar to figuratively grab his son by the shoulders and shake any discouragement that may be seeping into her son's heart so that he and she could reach their destination and fulfil what God had in store for them. Therefore, hazaq is once again used, not to force an action on a person determined against it, but to strongly "motivate" someone who is discouraged from continuing on the present journey.


After Genesis 21:18 above, hazaq is used 3 times to refer to famine laying hold of Egypt during Joseph's reign (in Genesis 41:56, Genesis 41:57, and Genesis 47:20), as if the famine was an instrument from God to coerce a reluctant Egypt to align itself with God's purposes at the time. The last time that hazaq appears in Genesis is in Genesis 48:2, referring to Israel "strengthening" himself to sit up on his deathbed when told that Joseph was coming unto him. Thus, hazaq once again has the connotation of someone forcing (himself, in this case) to do something that his (physical) being was reluctant to do despite the fact that his will was not "strongly opposed" to it in any way.


Compelled to seize unsightly "serpent" authority

After Genesis, hazaq appears again in verse 4 of the following passage, translated as "caught":


"1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. 2 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. 3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. 4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: 5 That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee." (Exodus 4:1-5)


The word "serpent" in verse 3 was translated from the Hebrew word nahas, which is used 5 times in Genesis 3 to refer to the serpent that deceived Eve and caused Adam to fall, but it is then used again in Genesis 49:17 where Israel prophesies that his son Dan "shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward". Given that Dan means "judge", and given that Israel was in the process of blessing Dan (as opposed to cursing him), it can be safely inferred that God was declaring that He would "return the favour" to the enemy by sending lowly serpents to judge those who have used the fall of man and the matriarchal reign of the soul to rise to positions of authority and power. These serpents may look "evil" to the simplistic, matriarchal soul, but they will actually be righteous agents of God who will execute God's judgement and assert His Spirit authority on Earth despite their lowly, ground-level, and unsightly-to-the-soul condition. This is emphasised by the Spirit's use of nahas in Numbers 21:6 when referring to the "fiery serpents" that God sent amongst the Israelites to judge them to death. Thus, when the rod, which represents authority, became a nahas when it was cast to the ground in Exodus 4:3, it signified that the authority with which Moses would lead the Israelites and set them free from their bondage would be a "Danite" authority that emanates deadly judgements from a lowly position of apparent weakness and irrelevance. When Moses "grabbed" (i.e.- hazaq-ed) the serpent from the ground after initially fleeing from it, he was forcing his reluctant soul to grab that judgement authority despite its external unpleasantness, which once again points to how hazaq refers to being pushed to do something that you are not totally against but which you have hesitations about.


Compelled to show their true colours

After Exodus 4:21, 10 of the remaining 13 appearances of hazaq in Exodus are in reference to God "hardening" Pharaoh's heart. Thus, hazaq is used in those verses to refer to God pushing Pharaoh to resist letting the Israelites go, which was something that Pharaoh was naturally inclined to do because of his pride but was having occasional doubts about because of all the judgements that God was unleashing upon Egypt. Why would the Lord push someone to defy and resist Him? The answer lies in understanding the nature of God's "pushing". It is as if the Lord extended His hand into Pharaoh's heart and began to squeeze it in order to force it to exhibit what was at its core, as one who squeezes a fruit to force out the juice hidden inside of it. Pharaoh's heart had no chance of repentance in it, but he was still hesitating to fully commit to the prideful evil that he had embraced. Ironically, when a person has determined that he will never repent but is still toying with the idea of acting righteously, he ends up being a source of delay for God's purposes on Earth. Why? Because his openness to partially embrace a measure of righteousness makes it impossible to judge him out of the way. This is because the Lord our God is very merciful and is always willing to give us an opportunity if we begin to walk towards Him. That is why, when He sees that the situation is "going nowhere" and that the person will only dip his toes in righteousness without ever fully immersing himself in it, He will force that person to the valley of decision, pushing him to expose the fullness of the unrighteous nature within him so that He will then be "legally free" to move him and his hindering unrighteousness out of the way. In other words, the hazaq "pushing" that God did on Pharaoh's heart was to get Pharaoh to show to himself and to all who he really was on the inside. "Show yourself", the Lord said to Pharaoh, which he reluctantly did, and God was then free to move him out of the way of His plans for the people of Israel.


In a sense, that is what God has done to America, especially to conservative and "Christian" America, at the time of this writing. Conservatives and "Christians" have constantly toyed with the idea of fully obeying God, but they keep stopping every time that that obedience requires surrendering their worship of the "Founding Fathers" and the U.S. Constitution or surrendering their belief in the validity of the pastor-controlled Church system. Despite God's patient efforts to get them to fully commit to Him, they have proved to be unrepentantly committed to their partially-true way of seeing things. This is why God is now squeezing their hearts, pushing them to expose (to themselves and to all) what they really are: idolatrous promoters of an Old-Covenant, subtly elitist status quo, which makes them enemies of the Kingdom of God on Earth. And, just as God has planned, they are exposing themselves as such now, for which reason America will have spiritually died by the time you read this. America has been withholding the manifestation of God's purposes on Earth by hoarding the gifts and resources that God has given to her, hoarding them without ever using them according to the fullness of His plans, using them only to validate their idolatry.


Observing and bruising your body

The word hazaq surprisingly appears in one of the best-known verses in Scripture, translated as "strong":


"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:9)


Hence, we can see how hazaq here speaks of pushing oneself to do something that one may already be inclined to doing, fighting off internal reluctances and hesitations. There are times when we must push ourselves to do what we know God is calling us to do. And, even though the Holy Spirit may provide us with strong encouragement and empowerment, there are certain things that only we can do for ourselves. That final push must sometimes come from within us and nowhere else, for this is how God has designed it.


"24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)


The phrase "keep under" in verse 27 was slightly mistranslated from the Greek verb hypopiazo, which literally means "to beat black and blue, to smite so as to cause bruises" and is interestingly derived from the Greek prefix hypo meaning "under" and the verb optanomai meaning "to behold". Hence, hypopiazo has the etymological connotation of keeping someone "under observation", watching it like a hawk to jump on it when it is not heading towards the intended destination. That is why it is no coincidence that the only other time that hypopiazo appears in Scripture is in verse 5 of the following passage, translated as "weary":


"1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:1-8)


The phrase "bring it unto subjection" of 1 Corinthians 9:27 above was translated from the verb doulagogeo, which only appears once in Scripture and is derived from the words doulos meaning "servant, slave" and ago meaning "to lead, bring forth". Hence, doulagogeo literally means "to lead into slavery". Why would Paul say such a thing about his body? To better discern the answer, we must consider the spiritual meaning of the word doulos and of the body per se. As we have shared before, doulos is spiritually connected to the prophetic endowment of sacrifice, meaning that prophets become slaves to the visions of God and are willing to make painful, involuntary sacrifices for the sake of those visions. As we have also shared before, prophets are the spiritual antithesis of Girgashites, who are prone to obsessing about material things because of their focus on the visible. This correlates with the "body", since the body is the material component of our human nature (with the soul and the spirit corresponding to our invisible parts). This means that we must see the material part of ourselves as "expendable" and be willing to put it through painful sacrifices in order to fulfil the visions of God. Like a slave indebted to his master (Proverbs 22:7), our bodies (i.e.- the material part of our lives) must act as if they are indebted to the Spirit of God, paying that debt through sacrifice and pain as the master (i.e.- the Spirit of God) and His visions require it. In order to do this, we must keep our body (our material part) under strict observation to put the "slave" back in his place every time it starts to stray from God's visions and purposes.


Interestingly, this hypopiazo observation has the connotation of a teacher who observes his students, especially during a test, making sure that no one does anything inappropriate. This "teacherly" connection is reinforced by the word "castaway" at the end of 1 Corinthians 9:27, which was mistranslated from the Greek word adokinos that the KJV translators translated as "reprobate" in 6 of its 8 appearances in Scripture. In English, the word "reprobate" is derived from the Latin word probare meaning "to prove, test" (as indicated on, which is consistent with the fact that adokinos is derived in Greek from the prefix a meaning "without" and the verb dokeo meaning "to think, have an opinion". Opinions are mostly "mental" in nature, and they are weaker than "judgements", which are also mental but have a resolute and definitive nature about them. Since the 2 ministerial endowments that target the mind most directly are apostle and teacher, we can conclude that opinions emanate from man's teacher nature. This means that, in 1 Corinthians 9:27, the Spirit of God is speaking of using one's teacherly qualities of observation and opinion to ensure that the material part of us never turns Girgashite and drowns out the prophetic vision that we are to follow (or Canaanite, defying God's judgements). This requires hazaq-ing ourselves into doing what needs to be done.


Murderous rape by forceful persuasion

Returning to Deuteronomy 22:23-29 quoted earlier, we can now conclude that, when the Spirit of God uses the word hazaq in verse 25 to speak of the man "forcing" the "betrothed damsel" and lying with her, He is referring to something slightly different from what one would normally associate with the word "rape". Usually, "rape" conjures up the notion of a stronger man attacking a weaker woman who is categorically opposed to the terrible and evil deed that is about to be done against her. By contrast, Deuteronomy 22:25 speaks of a man putting great pressure on a woman, pushing her to do something that she might even be inclined to participate in but has strong hesitations about. The fact, therefore, that verse 25 ends with the man being sentenced to death means that God's standard for "rape" is much higher than that of natural man. Even if the woman was not categorically and violently opposed to the action, the man is still fully accountable for exercising his position of greater strength and authority to pressure the woman into the unGodly action.


It is also interesting that God's sentence is death in such actions, which contrasts with natural man's laws, which are generally very lenient towards rapists, often releasing them back into society after only a few years, as if they had done nothing more than rob a small grocery store or punched a couple of people. Notice also how, in verse 26 of Deuteronomy 22, the Spirit of God says "for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter", which emphasises the moral equivalence of rape and murder in God's eyes.


Angelic fight-back

Having said the above, it is worth pointing out two additional details. For one, Deuteronomy 22:27 declares that the damsel is not to be attributed any fault in the matter because she cried in the field "and there was none to save her". This means that there is a responsibility in the woman to summon help from the people around her, even when the hazaq of the rapist has taken advantage of the weaknesses in the woman's will and has successfully broken down some of her hesitations. To overcome the man's hazaq-ing, she must summon all the strength in her to cry out and expose the man's actions to anyone who may hear, not only to expose his moral weakness and humiliate him but to get the help of whomever is able to compensate for the strength and will-power differential.


This "crying out" requires two qualities: the apostolic willingness to judge and expose others and the evangelistic willingness to go toe to toe with any Amorite giant, no matter how disparate the matchup appears to be, for God is the great equaliser, and He can enable us to inflict more damage on our enemies than they can ever inflict on us, no matter how much that damage may appear to be. Thus, we can safely say that a soul immersed in the matriarchal system will never be able to "cry out" against a rape attempt (whether that attempt be literal or figurative) because it will always lack the "male" abilities to apostolically judge and assert evangelistic authority over the enemy even if that enemy appears "stronger" on the surface. This writer believes that this is why Melissa did not "scream" or create some sort of scene when Carter was coming against her, even when there were people nearby, and this is why she did not speak out against Carter for years. It also explains why she made every effort possible through the years to portray herself as supportive of the Backstreet Boys and Carter. She appreciated the Backstreet Boys in general and was concerned that any criticism of Carter would tarnish them and make her look as unnecessarily harsh, judgemental, or even "jealous". Said another way, she did not want to manifest an apostolic nature because she had been trained into thinking by the matriarchal Church that such behaviour was "unbecoming" of a "Christian". Having embraced a Canaanite, anti-judgment mindset, she became more concerned about pleasing others and being "popular", which is why she abstained from ever expressing any criticism against any member of the popular Backstreet Boys. This also explains why she (by her own words) decided to wait until "someone else" complained about Carter raping them first before daring to publicly denounce Carter. Apostolically inclined people do not wait to gain a consensus before publicly declaring a judgement. On the contrary, they are willing to stand like a lonely lion against a multitude of powerful, opposing pastoral voices.


"For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof." (Isaiah 31:4)


As we have shared before, angels are apostle-evangelists. Therefore, we can say from the above that the shout that will fight back against unrighteous hazaq persuasion is a "male" angelic shout that will be filled with angelic, spirit-rock strength to push back against the unrighteous agents' advances, overcoming any persuasive effects of the enemy on our bodies' weak will.


Melissa's failure to save herself and others

As we shared above, Melissa was (and may still partially be) a weak Perizzite-Canaanite who was incapable of/unwilling to make apostolic judgements as an individual and with a soul too crippled by the Perizzite spirit to stand up against Carter, not only during the rape but for many years afterwards. On the other hand, Carter was (and is) a Hivite-Canaanite-Amorite so convinced about his sense of entitlement that he saw Melissa's resistance as nothing more than a temporary resistance, a part of the Canaanite "dance" that could be overcome with a little bit of "strong motivation". When he saw that Melissa relented and began to "go along" without so much as a peep (despite the people within shouting distance), his twisted soul perceived it as "consent". All of this explains why Carter seems so authoritative in his denials and why it seems as if Melissa is making false allegations, especially when one considers her contradictory behaviour throughout the years.


As can be seen, the evil spirits involved in both Carter and Melissa make it very difficult to discern who is "lying" and who is "telling the truth". Carter's evil spirits seem to be a clear transmission of ancestral spirits that have ravaged through his genealogical line, as evidenced by his parents' constant fighting, his sister Leslie's sad death (from an apparent "anti-schizophrenia" drug overdose) on 31 January 2012 at the age of 25, and his brother Aaron Carter's, drug addiction, confusion into bisexualism, and eventual death on 5 November 2022 at the age of 34 (due to a drug-induced accidental drowning, according to


Melissa's evil spirits may have also been the product of ancestral transmission, but they were spirits that could have been easily broken and removed from her life had she been under a spirit-centric Church environment that fostered the "male" endowments of apostolic judgement and evangelistic authority. Had she been a spirit-centric believer on the day of the rape, she would have probably never visited Carter's place with the other people to begin with, and, even if she had found herself in such a situation, her reaction to Carter's hazaq-ing would have been so different that it would have led to an early public exposure of Carter's "Mr. Hyde" personality, preventing Carter attacking other women afterwards (not only because other women would have been warned but because Carter's Canaanite, people-pleasing nature would have done everything in his power to prevent alienating the public any further).


As a parenthesis, it is worth noting that Carter's brother Aaron had redeemable qualities, emphasising how that family seemed to be riddled with a strange mixture of much good and much evil. As indicated on, Aaron Carter caused "controversy" amongst the ignorant American white trash (i.e.- white fascist liberals) by refusing to take the mRNA gene-therapy injections when pressured to do so by a Las Vegas production of a lewd, homosexuality-promoting musical, for which reason he was let go before the debut performance. Worthless and destructive as the musical was, it is commendable that, despite the Canaanite, people-pleasing influences on his and his family's life, he did not yield to the pressure to be injected just to be part of the show. This writer would dare to say that, had Melissa been more spiritually "male" and had she exposed Nick Carter's dark side, she would have either prevented or delayed the decline and death of Carter's siblings Aaron and Leslie. Aaron, for example, would have become consciously aware of God's judgement against the sexual depravity and the subtle dark violence running through his family line, and he would have been less prone to justifying it when it began to surface in his own life. This would have had a direct effect on Leslie's life, for, as the Carter family itself states (according to, Aaron's actions against her intensified the Hittite cloud of depression over her, accelerating her demise and sadly aborting a very promising life and artistic career.


An artistic teacher with a Canaanite door

Having considered Nick Carter, we must now consider the remaining member of the group, A.J. McLean. A quick look at the description on of McLean's early artistic start makes it evident that he had a rise similar to the other band members', surrounded by people who recognised his talents and who allowed him to develop that talent, always taking the necessary steps to ensure the birth of his musical stardom. This points to how the band was under a prophetic destiny mapped out by God so that they could eventually come together and do what they were called to do. What, then, is spiritually different about McLean when compared to the other band members? To answer that, we must consider a few things about him.


As we shared earlier, Richardson, born in 1971, graduated high school in 1989 before he began to pursue a professional music career. Dorough, born in 1973, graduated high school in 1991 before starting his professional career. Littrell, born in 1975, was almost literally pulled out of history class by Richardson to join the Backstreet Boys in April 1993, and he finished high school by correspondence, graduating in 1994. Nick Carter, born in 1980, was 13 when he joined the Backstreet Boys and had a personal tutor on tour. However, as indicated on, he did not follow through with his education, graduating from high school via a GED until 2013 or 2014, in his early 30s, some 15 years after the expected graduation age of 17 or 18. By contrast, McLean, born in 1978, some 2 or 3 years before Nick Carter, was some 3 years away from graduating high school when he became the first member of the Backstreet Boys in 1992. He finished those 3 years via correspondence with a tutor on the road, and, even though this writer could not confirm it, it seems as if those 3 years by correspondence were immediately after he became a member of the Backstreet Boys, meaning that he must have graduated around 1996, around the expected age of 18. This means that, even though he was the second-youngest member and had the most "justifications" not to graduate on time, he found a way to do so.


By contrast, Nick Carter, who was only 2 years younger, did not graduate until many, many years later. This evidences two qualities about McLean: First, he values education and is not "turned off" by it, and, second, it shows that he is the type of person who is capable of efficiently organising his time in order to achieve well-established goals (since that is the only way that a person could manage a hectic professional schedule and a formal education at the same time). This means that McLean has an impartation of the teacher endowment to complement his artistic gifts, since the teacher endowment is the one most directly associated with goal-setting, efficiency, organisation, and learning. This contrasts with the other young member of the group, Nick Carter, who clearly had greater difficulty giving priority to his education. Having such a strong Canaanite influence on his life, Nick Carter has a strong pastoral impartation on him (since that is the endowment that deteriorates into the Canaanite spirit), meaning that he has a very low pain threshold and is therefore strongly inclined to shy away from any activity that causes discomfort or pain, quickly gravitating towards activities that produce immediate comfort and pleasure. It is no wonder, therefore, that it took him until his early 30s to graduate high school (though, as the saying goes, "better late than never").


McLean's "teacherly" inclinations are also subtly evident in a weakness he has had to grapple with. As indicated on, McLean used cocaine for the first time in the year 2000, at the height of the Backstreet Boys success, on the set of the video for their song "The Call". Oddly enough, as indicated on, that song is about a man that is unfaithful to his girlfriend, with the video progressively portraying each of the 5 members as the unfaithful man. Therefore, it is as if the set of the video accumulated an atmosphere of shameless unfaithfulness to the truth and to one's calling, and it is in that atmosphere that McLean fell into drug addiction. Richardson confronted McLean about his addiction a year later, in July 2001, to which McLean reacted with a threat to quit the band, but he later broke down and "arranged rehab for drug and alcohol abuse", according to the words on the Wikipedia article on McLean. This evidences McLean's teacherly nature, for, after his initial Canaanite, anti-painful-judgement response, he recognised his problem and immediately set about a methodical procedure to deal with it. The next year, 2002, he entered rehab a second time, and, in 2011, he entered rehab a third time, giving as his reason his desire to be healthy and perform well during a joint tour with the New Kids on the Block, and he was able to organise his rehab without affecting that tour. He also stated a desire to be fully sober and healthy before his marriage later that year. Again, all of this shows planning, the setting of goals, and repeating procedures as needed until the desired goals are completed, all of which are qualities typical of people with the teacher endowment. Even though McLean admitted in 2020 that he had relapsed at the end of 2019, he indicated that he was working to stay sober to be a better husband and father, which again shows the work ethic and focus on goals typical of a teacher.


Sadly, despite his methodical, teacherly methods, McLean has continued to hold a door open for the Canaanite spirit, for which reason he has relapsed several times in his fight against his Canaanite addictions. This open door is manifested, for example, in his explicit and deliberate embracing of homosexual and gender-confusion behaviour in others, as when he participated in a television show where celebrities compete to win prizes for homosexuality and gender-confusion "charities". As indicated on his 2020 participation in that show led to him winning the contest and to one such charity being awarded US$100,000 so that it could continue its suicide assistance hotline for gender-confused individuals, i.e.- transvestites. Sadly, this charity only seems to help people to overcome the suicide urge without surrendering their gender confusion, which is like swatting the flies away without removing the smelly rubbish bin.


The fact that such an organisation is so urgently needed for gender-confused individuals emphasises the reality that liberals do not want to admit: That gender confusion is, in human terms, a sad and terrible psychological disorder, and, in spiritual terms, a Canaanite-Hittite assault on the soul. Naturally, liberals rationalise these suicide urges by claiming that the they come from "blatant and systemic societal discrimination", yet all the homosexual-arrogance months and parades and all the constant validation of gender confusion on television and the media do not seem to be enough, for the root cause remains undealt with, creating greater and greater Hittite emptiness in the soul as the soul is urged by the Canaanite spirits to embrace and live by a very destructive Hittite deception. If you need permanent validation and emotional support to continue believing something about yourself, it can only beg the questions,

"Am I letting people convince me that I am something that I am really not? Am I letting volatile feelings that stem from an external source that I do not understand dictate to me what I really am, only because that external influence has managed to embed itself inside of me, making it seem as if it is coming from my real inner being? Is my inner being crying from within to get that cursed influence off of me, which is why I am so miserable embracing this influence as part of myself, even as I dutifully obey all of its urges?"


It is a shame that the above-mentioned charity received US$100,000 to ask its callers every question under the sun except the ones above, and it is a shame that McLean used his God-given talents to enable the spiritual sham behind that hotline, thereby keeping a door open for his own Canaanite daemons to continue hounding him.


As a parenthesis, this writer must share that, for some reason, as I was typing the questions above, I suddenly saw myself on a television show that was in the style of the 80s American show Donahue, asking these questions to the entire audience, the other guests, and the host. And I saw one of the guests, an effeminate man, suddenly rising from his chair and lunging at me as he shouted vicious obscenities at me. Even though this did not happen in real life, it felt like a very realistic scenario, for the Canaanite spirit can become very violent and vitriolic when judged and exposed (Genesis 19:9). And, being the spirit of low passions, it can go into sudden fits of rage that listen to no reason or logic and only seek to obliterate the people who dare to initiate their obliteration through the issuing of righteous, apostolic wisdom and judgements and radical prophetic sacrifices.


A group with a hidden spiritual blueprint

Now that we have described the 5 band members individually, we can do a quick summary of their spiritual nature to better understand how they fit together. The first member of the group, AJ McLean, brought a teacherly influence but was (and remains) clearly tainted by Canaanite influences that almost destroyed his career and personal life. This strong Canaanite influence means that McLean also has a pastoral nature (since pastors turn Canaanite when they go astray).


The second member to join the group, Howie Dorough, who joined very quickly after McLean, had a strong Spirit-of-Philadelphia impartation but was hounded by ancestral Jebusite spirits whose efforts to destroy his calling were thwarted with the help of certain family sacrifices such as the death of his sister Caroline. Even though he had an impartation of the prophetic Spirit of Smyrna and the teacher Spirit of Sardis, his main contribution to the group was the apostolic endowment of the Spirit of Ephesus, as evidenced by the strong Jebusite influence in his family that he had to fight against to thrive in the group (given that the apostolic endowment turns Jebusite when corrupted). As mentioned earlier, this apostolic/Jebusite influence came in great part from his father, who was a police officer, since police officers enforce the law, and that is what Jebusites do through unrighteous judgements and what apostles do through righteous judgements.


The third member to join the group, Nick Carter, is clearly the pastoral one of the group, as confirmed by the strong Canaanite influence in his life (since the pastoral endowment turns Canaanite when it strays from God's will). Sadly, Carter is not only a Canaanite pastor but also a Hivite, which ironically correlates, in a distorted way, with Howie Dorough's apostolic/Spirit-of-Philadelphia nature. Why? Because apostles and Canaanites are diametrically opposed to each other (since apostles judge and Canaanites hate judgement), and pastors are perfected when they turn apostolic. Also, the Hivite spirit results from a corruption of God's Spirit of Laodicea, which is one of the 2 "village" Spirits of God, alongside with the Spirit of Philadelphia. This means that, had Carter had a righteous heart, he could have become perfected in his pastoral endowment through the apostolic endowment inherent within Dorough, and their two "village-Spirit" endowments could have combined to impart greater dreams and visions, along with peace and prosperity, to the rest of the group (since God's Spirit of Philadelphia is the Spirit of Dreams and Visions and God's Spirit of Laodicea is the Spirit of Peace and Prosperity).


The fourth member to join the group, Kevin Richardson, clearly had a strong impartation of the evangelistic endowment, evidenced not only by his physical height relative to the rest of the group (since evangelists are "tall conquerors") but by the way in which he travelled back to Kentucky to "hunt down" his cousin Brian Littrell and convince him to leave everything and join the group (since evangelists are spiritual "hunters" with powers of "convincing" to sway the wills of others). Richardson also evidences an apostolic influence in his life, as shown by the way in which he confronted McLean when he discovered that McLean was using drugs. The fact that he convinced McLean to tackle his Canaanite tendencies shows how an evangelist-apostle can use his skills of convincing to sway the will of others towards righteousness, even when those others have a Canaanite reluctance to accept God's judgements.


The fifth and last member to join the group, Brian Littrell, clearly had a strong impartation of the prophetic endowment, as shown by his willingness to leave his high school studies incomplete and pursue a musical career filled with uncertainty. As we shared earlier, Littrell did not abandon his high school education out of disdain for education, as shown by the fact that he promptly completed his high school education by correspondence the very next year. The fact that he was pulled out of a history class by Richardson and "never looked back" after that emphasises his prophetic nature, given that history and "looking back to the past" can become obsessions to those trapped by the evil spirit that is the most anti-prophetic, i.e.- the Girgashite spirit. This writer would also argue that Littrell has a significant impartation of the teacher endowment, which would explain why he was in class, and in a history class at that, when he took the calling to be part of the Backstreet Boys. The fact that he finished his education by correspondence reveal the goal-oriented and organised nature of teachers. The fact that he went back to his pre-band intention of being a Christian music minister (after his full-time commitment with the band) again evidence a propensity for focusing on goals and not feeling "complete" or "perfected" until those goals are complete.


Based on all of the above, we can summarise the spiritual nature of the band's members in the following table:

No. Band member Endowment/Spirit Contamination
Primary Additional
1 AJ McLean Teacher Pastor Canaanite
2 Howie Dorough Apostle Spirit of Philadelphia  
3 Nick Carter Pastor Spirit of Laodicea Canaanite and Hivite
4 Kevin Richardson Evangelist Apostle  
5 Brian Littrell Prophet Teacher  


Notice that the 2 members with significant contamination are amongst the first 3 to start the group, meaning that the last 2, the evangelist and the prophet, were the ones who gave the group its true spiritual substance, with the apostle, Howie Dorough, acting as the glue that held the first 3 members together and prevented the contamination of the other two utterly corrupting the group's core nature (Dorough did this without realising it by emanating enough cleansing apostolic judgements from his very presence to keep McLean's and Carter's contamination in check). Notice also that the primary endowment of the 2 contaminated members just "happen" to be the 2 "female" ministries of pastor and teacher, showing how the matriarchal spirit can work to destroy the foundation of any endeavour if it is not constrained by apostolic judgements.


Notice also how the 2 endowments missing in the "Additional endowments" column are prophet and evangelist, which happen to be the endowments of the last 2 members of the group. However, it can be said that those 2 missing endowments are hidden in the "village-Spirit" endowments present in the table. As many of you may know, the only 2 Churches against which nothing negative was said in Revelation 2 and 3 are the Churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia, with both portrayed as suffering and making great sacrifices due to their faithfulness to God. Hence, anyone operating in the Spirit of Philadelphia will often manifest qualities very similar to those operating in the Spirit of Smyrna, which, as we have shared before, is the Spirit of God behind the prophetic endowment. Therefore, we can say that Dorough's presence in the group brought a subtle impartation of the prophetic endowment through the Spirit of Philadelphia in him (as confirmed by the sacrificial death of Dorough's sister described earlier, as well as his prophetic, Celtic ancestry).


On the other hand, God's Spirit of Laodicea, being the Spirit of Peace and Prosperity, brings with it a subtle but very real manifestation of the evangelistic endowment of conquest, since you can only achieve "peace and prosperity" if you have the ability to somehow influence the atmosphere enough to produce an environment conducive to peaceful progress. This means, therefore, that those with the Spirit of Laodicea have a subtle anointing to evangelistically conquer the atmosphere and propel people's wills towards growth and prosperity. Hence, we can say that, despite his contamination, Carter had a subtle impartation of the evangelistic endowment through the Spirit of Laodicea in him. That impartation contributed to the group being able to conquer the musical atmosphere of the Earth that enabled not only the group's prosperity but also the peace and prosperity of their listeners, giving them a sense, without them knowing it, of the Great Kingdom of Peace and Prosperity that God wanted them (and all of humanity) to experience through His latter-rain revival. Unfortunately, Carter took advantage of this atmosphere-conquering impartation in order to conquer weak female souls in lechery and to eventually rape those that refused to be "peaceably conquered" by his unrighteousness. This is what matriarchal pastors end up doing when they have any access to God's peace and prosperity, which is why they must be wiped off the face of the Earth, for they are the reason why God's Peace and Prosperity never becomes fully manifested on Earth.


From the above, we can expand the previous table to include an extra column:

No. Band member Endowment/Spirit Contamination
Primary Additional Hidden
1 AJ McLean Teacher Pastor   Canaanite
2 Howie Dorough Apostle Spirit of Philadelphia Prophet  
3 Nick Carter Pastor Spirit of Laodicea Evangelist Canaanite and Hivite
4 Kevin Richardson Evangelist Apostle    
5 Brian Littrell Prophet Teacher    


It becomes evident from the table above that the Backstreet Boys had within them the basic spiritual blueprint of God's latter-rain revival.

  • First, the apostolic endowment of wisdoms and judgements is to come in the midst of a matriarchal environment dominated by the "female" ministries of pastor and teacher, just as Dorough did between McLean and Carter. This apostolic endowment will first operate amongst those trapped in the matriarchal system but who are receptive enough to God's wisdom that they are willing to let their teacherly inclinations predominate over their pastoral ones, as reflected in the fact that the first member of the group, AJ McLean, was a teacher first and a pastor second. Since good teachers always make for good students, this willingness to let the teacher predominate over the pastor within them will allow them to learn the wisdom of God and understand His judgement nature better.
  • As this happens, the Spirit of Philadelphia, i.e.- the Spirit of Dreams and Visions, hidden within the "small" apostle (Dorough in this case) will prompt those formerly trapped in the pastor-teacher paradigm (represented by McLean and Carter) to perceive and dream of the prophetic visions that God wants to manifest on Earth.
  • Then, as this happens, the Spirit of Laodicea, i.e.- the Spirit of Peace and Prosperity, that is hidden within the pastors who have opened themselves up to God's truth (represented by Carter) will emerge. And, instead of being used to aggrandise their matriarchal queendoms (as would have otherwise happened), this impartation of Laodicea will be used to conquer the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth and open it up to God's Shalom Presence.
  • This will then lead to a no-longer "hidden" manifestation of the evangelistic endowment, leading to an outright conquest of the Earth unto God, a conquest that will overtake all of humanity's institutions and emotional paradigms, filling the Earth with God's apostolic judgements, as shown by the fact that Kevin Richardson's two endowments are evangelist and apostle.
  • When this happens, the apostolic endowment will be perfected, since apostles are perfected when they become evangelists, meaning that God's wisdom and judgements will be King over the Earth.
  • As all of this happens, the prophetic nature of God's people will also become fully manifested, calling into being the prophetic visions of God on Earth as the Holy Spirit teaches those visions to them. When this happens, the teacher endowment will be perfected, since teachers are perfected when they become prophets.


As we just shared, the "hidden" endowments in the table above are prophet and evangelist, which are also the endowments of the last 2 members, i.e.- the members who joined the band after the core 3 had been established. This has further spiritual significance. As we have shared before, prophet and evangelist are the 2 "grace" ministries, where the prophet embodies spiritual grace and the evangelist embodies natural grace. This reveals that, in God's plans, the overflow of latter-rain grace will flow from the hidden inner man and out into the world in a visible and tangible way after the Church allows the apostolic endowment of wisdom and judgements to rein in the pastoral matriarchy (i.e.- the pre-eminence of pastors and teachers). In the case of the Backstreet Boys, this visible and tangible manifestation of grace was evident in their music, which had an uncanny and uplifting grace quality to it, a quality that subtly prompted people to dream and hope (i.e.- Philadelphia) and offered them a taste of an environment of peace and prosperity (i.e.- Laodicea), which is why the 2 members with the Philadelphia and Laodicea Spirits had the "grace" ministries of prophet and evangelist hidden within them.


The Swedish connection

It must be mentioned that a significant number of the Backstreet Boys' hit songs were authored by Europeans, primarily Swedes, and many of their hits were even recorded in Europe, specifically in Stockholm, Sweden. For example, many of their biggest hits (including their biggest hit, "I want it that way") were written by Karl Martin Sandberg, known professionally as Max Martin, who was born in Stockholm. As mentioned in a BBC article from April 2019, Max Martin has (as of that date) 22 U.S. Billboard number 1 singles to his name, making him the 3rd most successful songwriter of all time in the American music scene, behind only John Lennon and Paul McCartney, something that is even more remarkable when you consider that most people in America, even people who know much about music, have no idea who "Max Martin" is. Another person who was deeply influential in many of the Backstreet Boys' hits, and who had a deep impact in their core sound, was Dag Krister Volle, known professionally as Denniz PoP.


As indicated on, Denniz PoP was born on 26 April 1963, meaning that he shares his birthday with this website's domain name, "", which went live on 26 April 2004, exactly 31 years later (though it must be clarified that this website was technically born the day before, on 25 April 2004, but was only accessible via its IP address on that day). PoP was born in Tullinge, a suburb of Stockholm, to Norwegian immigrants. As indicated on the BBC article mentioned above, Denniz PoP could not sing, play an instrument, or write a song, making him an unlikely candidate to influence the music world in any significant way. What he did have was a (God-given) Philadelphia vision to produce a unique musical style that would go on to influence the entire world and make Sweden a musical powerhouse. Despite his musical "limitations", he knew that he had the ability to create a song by stitching together electronically programmed sounds and beats. He apparently became a DJ in Sweden's underground club scene in 1986, but he was interested in producing music that would not only appeal to club audiences but to radio audiences as well. This idea was very unpopular amongst people in the club scene, who disdained the "pop radio" sound, which is why they were appalled when Volle chose "PoP" as part of his professional name. Despite this, Denniz PoP persevered with his vision, bringing together a group of 8 songwriters and producers in a humble basement to start Cheiron Studios in 1992.


As described in the BBC article mentioned above, the Cheiron team followed PoP's example, DJ'ing at various clubs across Stockholm, experimenting with many different versions of a new track, methodically documenting the combination of beats and melodies that produced the greatest crowd reactions. This led to a musical style that revolutionised the world. For example, the Britney Spears song "Baby one more time", created by the Cheiron team and recorded in Sweden at Cheiron Studies in May 1998, was constructed by taking the very big choruses typical in songs from hair metal bands such as Bon Jovi and Def Leppard and putting them in the context of (American) hip-hop and (British) acid-house music.


Sadly, Denniz PoP was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 1997, at the age of 34, dying less than a year later, but his disciples at Cheiron continued his work, producing hit after hit after hit, proving that Denniz PoP had been able to beget people who shared his musical-creation vision, despite his early death. It is as if his death by cancer was a prophetic sacrifice to overcome the Girgashite spirit of earthly focus and external order that so often grips the Swedish people and prevents them operating at a higher, prophetic level.


Just the right amount

It can be argued that the disciple who most strongly carried Denniz PoP's torch after his passing was Max Martin, who started at Cheiron as a trainee producer and "tea boy" in 1993. Max and the other members of Cheiron eventually developed a musical theory that they baptised as "Melodic Math". This theory is based on a philosophy of "seeking the right amount", which, in turn is based on the Swedish philosophy of "Lagom". As explained on, "Lagom" is a Swedish word that can be translated as "just the right amount" or "not too much, not too little". Some would take this concept and simplistically reduce it to "moderation". However, moderation is a dangerous guideline to use when distinguishing truth from falsehood. Why? Because moderation usually degrades into a disdain of anything that seems "extreme", which then becomes a convenient cover for non-committal half-heartedness as it prompts people to always aim for the "50%" mark.


Consider, for example, the following scenario: Imagine that you go out and pick certain wild berries to make a special dish, and it is known that some of those berries are poisonous, and that the poisonous berries can be identified by examining them closely and looking for certain subtle characteristics. Would you want the cook preparing the dish to exercise "moderation" when deciding what berries to use and what berries to discard, or would you prefer that he be a little bit of a "radical" or "extremist", taking all the time he needs to inspect the berries and identify the poisonous ones? Would you applaud the cook's sense of "balance" and "moderation" if 50% of the berries he used were non-poisonous? Of course not, you would want the cook to ensure that 100% of the berries were non-poisonous, even if that made the dish's preparation more time-consuming and expensive. In other words, the "right amount" of poisonous berries to use in this scenario is "0%", even when 0% is about as far away from the middle-ground of 50% moderation as one can get.


In some scenarios, the right amount is indeed around 50%, but, in many, many scenarios, the right amount is a percentage that is closer to either the extreme of "100%" or the extreme of "0%". This means that judging the merit of something merely by how "extreme" it appears is to border on the edge of catastrophe. In fact, one could even ask, "Should we use cautious moderation 100% of the time?" If so, wouldn't our very use of "moderation" be "extreme" in itself? Hence, to equate the concept of "lagom" with a moderation that is infatuated with the 50% mark is not only erroneous but extremely dangerous. "Lagom" simply points out that, in many cases, there is a right amount or range, and we should often endeavour to ascertain what that right amount or range is and to abide by it as often as possible. That right amount or range could be "extreme", but that does not take away from it being the "right amount".


For example, do you think that God wants us to exercise "moderation" when rejecting falsehood? Would He want us to avoid being "extremists" when it comes to truth and to embrace a few falsehoods here and there to prevent us turning into "fanatical" seekers of His truth? Did God commit the "sin" of "non-moderation" when He asked us to love Him with all (i.e.- 100%) of our hearts, all (i.e.- 100%) of our souls, and all (i.e.- 100%) of our strength (Luke 10:27)? Of course not. In that example, the "extremist" amount of 100% is "lagom", i.e.- "just the right amount". Interestingly, the Swedish word "lagom" is derived from the word lag meaning "law". Hence, it points to someone who is aware that there are laws or principles that rule over everything and who therefore endeavours to honour and abide by those laws and principles to avoid being off the mark.


Now that we have warned about the mistake of trivialising "lagom", reducing it to blind "50% moderation", let us describe how "lagom" plays a role in Sweden's "melodic math". For example, if the verse seems to have many notes, you may want to put few notes in the chorus to avoid overloading the song with notes. If the chorus has a staccato feel to it (meaning that it has short notes intercalated with relatively long silences), then you may want to use a verse that has an ambient feel to it (meaning that it will have more of a "smooth" background sound to it with less musical structure). This would be to avoid making the song feel too "disjointed" or "irregular". Melodic math also seeks to use the same number of notes or syllables in each line, which is sometimes achieved by adding syllables to shorter lines, which can be done by elongating words and adding vibrato, meaning that the line will sound like it has more syllables when sung, even when the number of syllables in the written words remains the same. This effort to "equalise" the number of notes or syllables in each line is to guarantee that the song as a whole will have an even and harmonious feel to it. Another of the many "lags or "rules" in Melodic Math is to give the chorus the same number of notes as the introduction, which is done to give the chorus a "familiar" feel to it every time it comes up in the song (this was a technique often used by the Swedish group ABBA, according to the BBC article linked to earlier).


From all of the above, it can be discerned that Denniz PoP, Max Martin, and the others in Cheiron Studios produced a very distinctive and unique sound that sought to methodically find the "perfect" sound that evoked the most positive reaction possible from the souls who heard it. This sound endeavoured to stir you to action with staccato beats whilst at the same time giving you a sense of atmospheric peace and harmony through its ambient notes. It also endeavoured to reflect stability through its constant number of notes per line whilst also generating familiarity and empathy with the song by giving the chorus and the intro the same number of notes. All of this gave a Spirit-of-Philadelphia quality to the music, subtly inviting souls to have dreams and visions of greater things whilst giving them a taste of what it feels like to be in an environment enveloped by the Peace-and-Prosperity Spirit of Laodicea. This is what was released into the Earth through the music of the Backstreet Boys and others as the year 1998 and the turn of the century came upon the Earth.


The angelic Swedish miracle

It must be emphasised that the "Swedish Miracle" sound that emerged out of Cheiron Studios and Sweden impacted many musical acts besides the Backstreet Boys. For example, as mentioned earlier, Britney Spears' song "Baby one more time" was composed and written by Max Martin and recorded by Britney Spears at Cheiron Studios in Sweden in 1998. As indicated on, Spears was 16 years old at the time, and the song's album (her debut album, which included other songs recorded at Cheiron) became the best-selling LP by a teenager in history, launching Spears from complete anonymity to international stardom. In 2000, Spears was again in Sweden to work with Max Martin on her second album, titled "Oops! ... I did it again", which went on to be another massive success. The title song was written by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, a fellow Swede of Palestinian descent and Denniz PoP disciple who also helped produce "Baby one more time".


Cheiron was also behind the sound of NSYNC, a group spiritually similar to Backstreet Boys, but whose spiritual relevance was not as intense (for which reason we will not talk about them here). This means that the 3 most influential musical acts as the world transitioned from the 1990s to the 3rd millennium all had the spiritual influence of the Swedish Cheiron sound behind them. The fact that the vast majority of people (including this writer up until this article) are not aware of this is astonishing, and it emphasises the fact that what happened in Cheiron was a behind-the-scenes, "undercover" operation that God was carrying out to influence the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth as the 1998-2018 period came upon humanity. It is as if God did not want anyone to associate that musical spirit to "human geniuses" or a specific culture, for that music was "humanly universal" in nature and, though forged through specific individuals, it was being "instigated" by the invisible Spirit of God to influence human souls in a non-soulish way.


Interestingly enough, even though Cheiron people such as Max Martin continued to be active for many years, successfully writing and producing for many other well-known musical acts, Cheiron itself closed its doors in 2000, which, as indicated on, was at the height of its success. Cheiron's leaders at the time were Max Martin, who took over for Denniz PoP after his death, and Tom Talomaa, who co-founded Cheiron with PoP in 1992. When they closed operations, Martin and Talomaa wrote on Cheiron's website,

"Cheiron was created with the intention of having fun, making a few hits and not getting too serious about it. We feel the 'hype' of Cheiron has become bigger than [the studio] itself and it's time to quit while we're ahead."

Even though the above quote seems superficial and non-spiritual, it reveals that the people at Cheiron understood, deep within their being, that they were called to be "silent agents of change" who were on assignment from Someone else. In other words, they were called to be like "soulless angels" carrying out their appointed mission. And, once the 3rd millennium had finally arrived (in 2000), it was time to move on to something else. They had kickstarted something in the spirit realm that transformed the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth, preparing it for God's purposes for that generation. The "snowball was already rolling", and there was no need to continue at Cheiron, lest man started interfering and polluting what God had started.


Escape from devouring blackness

The fact that Cheiron founder Denniz PoP's parents were Norwegian immigrants has spiritual significance. As we have shared before, Norway has a subtle, hidden connection with the green horse of the Apocalypse, but is mostly "black-horse", and is unfortunately stagnated in that stage, for which reason the "New Norwegian" cannot be manifested. This is why God had to coax Denniz PoP's parents to leave Norway and head for Sweden, given that the music that he was to produce could not be "stuck in black" and needed to have a strong green-horse component in order to effect the necessary transformational influence on the Earth's atmosphere as the new millennium dawned upon the Earth.


The fact that Cheiron Studios' founders chose the name "Cheiron" also has spiritual significance. As indicated on, Cheiron refers to a figure in Greek mythology. Most believers tend to Girgashitely dismiss mythologies and legends, automatically assuming that they are "of the devil" and have no substance in them. However, as we have shared before, myths and legends often grow out of realities perceived in the spirit realm by people who were not fully and explicitly aware of the God of Israel but who were sensitive enough to perceive elements of His presence and invisible "streams" flowing in the spirit realm.


"10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." (Romans 2:10-16)


In Greek mythology, Cheiron was considered the "wisest and justest of all the centaurs", being physically different from other centaurs in that it had human front legs rather than horse legs, making it appear like a man standing upright who had a horse's body protruding from his back. Cheiron was described as being the son of the Titan Cronus and a water nymph named Philyra. "Coincidentally", in the posting where we shared on the spiritual nature of Norway, we also shared on Cronus and its connection to "chronos-consuming" activities that are filled with Hittite purposelessness and prevent you recognising God's kairos doors of opportunity that open up in the spirit realm, which then leads to the devouring of your spiritual calling and the annulment of all the things that God intended to do in and through you on Earth. All of this correlates with why Denniz PoP's parents had to leave the Cronus-dominated atmosphere of Norway in order to enable what God wanted to do through his life. It also points to the aggressive stomach cancer that "devoured" his life so quickly, taking him from Earth at the young age of 35, but not without leaving a lasting musical legacy that begat many "musical children", all of whom would have been devoured by the chronos-bound Girgashite spirit of Cronus had Denniz PoP's parents (and Denniz himself) not heeded the call to distance themselves from that spirit.


The fact that the Cheiron was the "wisest and justest of all the centaurs" points to the apostolic endowment of wisdom and judgements. The Cheiron was also a "respected oracle", which points to the prophetic endowment, and he was also a "great healer", which points to the evangelistic endowment, since, as we have shared before, that is the endowment most directly related to "healing" or "saving"). Thus, we can see how the figure of the Cheiron embodies all 3 "male" ministry endowments, which is also embodied in the physical appearance given to it: The Cheiron's front, which is an upright man standing on his 2 legs represents a man with apostolic wisdom superior to that of animals, and his back side, the body of a horse, represents the evangelistic and prophetic endowments combined. This is because, as we have shared before, horses are warrior animals, which is why they were so often used for warfare, which points to the evangelistic endowment of warring conquerors; on the other hand, horses are also fast and fluidly moving animals that fearlessly throw themselves at danger and the unknown when prompted to by their riders, all of which points to the "kamikaze" behaviour, raw speed, and effortless, fluid movement that are associated to God's prophetic nature.


Interestingly, the Cheiron was also portrayed as a revered teacher or tutor who had many heroes as pupils, including Jason, Medus, Achilles, Aristaeus, Asclepius, and Acteon. This interestingly points to how Denniz PoP tutored many people during his short lifetime, imparting them (teacherly) methodologies on how to produce a different style of music. This also subtly points to the green horse of the Apocalypse, for, as we have shared before, the teacher endowment is the "hidden", tertiary endowment that moves in green-horse riders as they prepare to die in sacrificial, green-horse death, teaching others about unusual things that they will not hear elsewhere. This correlates perfectly with Denniz PoP, who died at the young age of 35 a few short years after teaching his disciples the completely unorthodox ideas that had been birthed in him. All of this certifies the green-horse quality in the music that came out of Cheiron Studios.


It is worth emphasising the spiritual significance of the fact that Denniz PoP moved on from this Earth in 1998, for that was the year that the Joel-prophesied period of 1998-2018 started. It is as if he worked in the preparation stage, moving on as the world's inhabitants entered into the period that his work had been preparing them for.


God willing, in the next posting, we will continue meditating on the 3rd generation of 1998-2018 referred to in Joel 1:2-3, as well as the 4th generation.
