Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, & Human Enhancement Herald the Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare -- Part Two

Editor's note: All notations will be cited in the final report. The information is based on research contained in Tom and Nita Horn's upcoming new book:

Authors note: While this series will deal especially and extensively with the connection between emerging technology and evil-supernaturalism, we wish to launch the expose in earnest over the next few entries with the basics of "Spiritual Warfare 101". The reason for this will become clearer as we start to peel back the onion layers into a dystopian nightmare most will find disquieting if not altogether shocking, yet necessary to understand.

Theoden: "I will not risk open war."
Aragorn: "Open war is upon you, whether you would risk it or not."
from J. R. R. Tolkien's, Lord of the Rings

My wife and I learned in over 25 years inside the largest evangelical institution in the world that there is always subtle danger when writers who attempt to discuss evil supernaturalism focus too much on unnecessary and often wildly exaggerated and biblically unsupported characteristics. We've shuttered more than once at so-called authorities on spiritual warfare using their works to fascinate people with everything from the particular names of demons to their size, shape, skin color, hair color, number of digits and even the thickness of saliva dripping from their lips. While such details may seem innocuous enough or even entertaining in a "Stephen King-ish" sort of way, this practice can become unbalanced and antithetical to New Testament instructions, even opening doors into the imagination for mental and spiritual danger. It is therefore the goal of this work to help with only that material we believe is necessary to recognize the battle that all believers are engaged in, and to comprehend the nature of the tactics employed by our hidden enemy. As Theoden learned in the Lord of the Rings, we are in this war whether we want to be or not, so we need to be equipped and informed.

We shall never forget some years ago when Dr. David Yonggi Cho described for us in vivid detail how he learned the truth about such unseen intelligence, which among other things operates behind the scenes to obstruct the work of the ministry.

As a young preacher, Cho had gone into a small Korean community to pioneer a church. Soon he discovered, as is common throughout much of Korea, a temple dedicated to the city's "guardian god" atop the highest local mountain. When the priests of the shrine learned that he was planning to start a missions outreach, they came to him infuriated, demanding that he leave the village. When he refused, they vowed to return and to put him, and any converts he won in the meantime, to death.

A few days later the priests were back, this time with a mob. The head priest, making sure the crowd was watching, called out, "Cho! Do you really believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that he can still work miracles?"

Cho replied, "Yes, I do."

"Then we have a challenge," the priest yelled. "Down in the village is a woman that has been bedridden for seven years. She and her child are dying now of disease. If Jesus can heal this woman in the next thirty days, we will go away and you can have your church. But if she is not healed, you must abandon your work or we will return and kill you and your followers."

Cho explained how in the United States most American's would never respond to such a dare, but that, in those days and in that culture, for him to have failed to do so would have been (in his opinion) to imply that his God was inferior to the temple deity, and would have closed the community's willingness to consider the Gospel message.

As a result, Cho accepted the contest and the following day traveled with his mother-in-law to the village where he found the dying woman. He suggested to the infirmed lady that if she would pray the sinners prayer and accept Jesus as her Savior, the Lord might choose to heal her. Instead, he found the woman to be very angry with any god (including Cho's God) who would have allowed her to suffer in the way that she had. After several unsuccessful visits to convince her otherwise, Cho decided that prayer alone would be his best alternative for her and her child.

Over the next few weeks he prayed earnestly for a miracle. He made regular visits to the village and sent messengers to report back any change. To his disappointment, the woman's condition only seemed to be worsening.

As the weeks passed and the deadline loomed, Cho grew very concerned. Finally, on the evening of the thirtieth day, he entered his prayer room and reminded God that, unless a miracle occurred, people from the temple of the guardian deity would arrive within hours to kill him and his followers. Cho said he prayed throughout that night and into the next morning "with the most passion ever."

Then, at 2:00 A.M., he experienced a powerful vision.

He thought he saw a shadow by the front door, and a strange sound spread along the wall.

Fixing his gaze on the opening, he felt primal fear roll over him, black and mindless.

His intuition screamed. Something dreadful was coming his way.

Another thump, and the front door to his home began slowly opening.

Gooseflesh crawled over his arms as "eerie oriental music" swept in through the entrance, barely discernable at first, then growing in intensity.

Against his better judgment, he turned his body toward the door.

He held his breath, looked harder, squinted.

The shadow slowed, became defined, an enormous silhouette of something alive creeping stealthily toward him.

Remaining very still, a moment past, then it emerged from the darkness, huge, snakelike, an Agathodemon from ancient times bearing the body of a serpent and the head of a man. Swaying to the melodious rhythm, the horrendous archfiend appeared wicked and menacing as it slank along the opening into the room where he was. It made eye contact with him and in heavy modulation that sounded as if each gurgling syllable started somewhere deep underground and passed through boiling magma on its way to his mouth, said, "Cho, if you don't leave this town, you are a dead man. I have been ruling this area all of these years, and who are you to come here and disturb my nest!?"

With that, the being lunged across the room lightning fast, landing on top of Cho, wrapping its body around him like prey, contracting its muscles to quickly constrict the air from his lungs. A baleful laughter, malignant and terrible, tittered from the monster's lips as from pebbled sockets its zenithal eyes glared mockingly down at him.

Grotesque and enraged, the thing opened its mouth wider, exposing a hideously forked tongue inside a nightmarish cavity lined with jagged molars and angled razor fangs. A phlegmy gurgle more dragon-like than reptilian disgorged a sulfurous stench that distilled through the room filling the air all around them.

A chill radiated through Cho as seconds passed and the undulating fiend's hide, crusty and wart covered, tightened around him like a garrote. He could feel his ribs bending toward the breaking point as the sheer force of the brutal creature's strength sent his own tongue curling to the roof of his mouth in pain. His body began reacting to the lack of blood flow, his hands and his feet started going numb, and his thoughts raced, Jesus! I'm dying!

But at that, something caught his attention. The creatures eyes had seemed to dart wildly about the very moment the name of Jesus passed through his mind. He thought it again, Jesus, and this time he was sure. The serpent had cringed and its grip had weakened at the very moment he had imagined that name!

With all the strength he could muster, Cho gasped for a breath of air and opened his mouth in a whisper, "Jesus."

The effect was immediate and dramatic. The sound of the name of Jesus discharged from his lips as tangibly as if a two-edged sword had been thrown into the heart of the being.

He spoke the name again, louder this time, and the demon jerked back, it's expression filling with terror, its grip unwinding from his waist.

Slipping from the coil, Cho quickly jumped to his feet and shouted, "JESUS... JESUS... JESUS!"

Now the creature reeled, first one way then the other, flailing about as if punch-drunk, wailing an otherworldly moan, then abruptly it fell to the floor. Before it could gather its strength and raise up to attack him again, Cho lifted his leg and crushed the human-like head beneath his foot. Studying it to make sure it wasn't moving, he picked the front part of the carcass up and dragged it toward the entry to toss it outside. As he moved toward the opening and pushed the seasoned door fully out of the way, he noticed what appeared to be a large crowd of villagers gathering in front of his home. Cautiously, he surveyed his surroundings, then lifted the Agathodemon's face above him and exclaimed, "This is the god that you have been serving all of these years, but now you must turn and serve the true and living God!"

Thereupon, Cho awoke to find the serpent-man visitation had been a compelling vision or dream. It was 4:00 A.M., time for early morning prayer at his tent church. With the memory of the threats made against him 30 days earlier still fresh in his mind, he rushed out the door and up the path to meet his tiny congregation. He knew the priests from the guardian temple would not be long in coming, and no sooner had he arrived when a Korean layman started shouting, "Pastor! Come quickly!" Glancing out the tent door, he saw over the hill in the rising dawn what appeared to be the entire city marching up the valley walls.

Cho's palms were sweating and his heart was racing as he stepped outside and watched the throng approach. Jesus, he thought, what should we do? Run? Hide? Then he noticed something curious. The people looked happy, as if they were rejoicing about something. A moment of silence past as he considered them, and he thought, It couldn't be! But, it was. Leading the crowd, with her baby in her arms, was the dying woman from the village. She ran up to him and said, "Oh Brother Cho, thank you so much for coming and praying for me last night. The Lord heard your prayer and I am healed!" Cho stared at her in amazement. "I did not come to your house and pray for you last night," he answered. "Oh yes," the woman insisted, "You came at two o'clock this morning and stood outside my window. You said loudly, 'Woman! Be healed in the name of Jesus Christ!' And I arose and found that I was healed, and my baby is healed!"

With that, Cho remembered that it had been at 2:00 A.M. when he had seen the vision and the Agathodemon had been destroyed.

With very few exceptions, the entire community converted to Christianity within 48 hours. Now matter what one thinks of Cho, today he pastors the largest evangelical church in the world with nearly a million members. It all started in a city delivered from demonic siege.


Undoubtedly when reading the story above, some people will feel hard pressed to interpret the narrative in any way other than as somebody's overactive imagination. Nevertheless, as Carol Anne so ominously expressed in the 1982 film, Poltergeist, "They're here." Demons and their militaristic interest in people and geography is an ontological fact according to the Bible. In the Old Testament, demons are seen as the living dynamic behind idolatry (i.e. Deut. 32:17), and in the New Testament every writer refers to their influence. Extra-biblical texts agree with this concern, including ancient pseudepigraphical works like the first Book of Enoch and post-New Testament writings such as The Didache, Ignatius's Epistle to the Ephesians, and The Shepherd of Hermas. Early Church Fathers also reinforced the belief that evil spirits seek to thwart the will of God on earth through attacks on the Body of Christ in particular and against society in general. Spiritual Warfare 101 begins by taking these facts into account; that not only do visible agents exist everywhere around us, but unseen intermediaries—both good and evil—interlope between spiritual and human personalities at home, in church, in government, and in society. On rare occasion, the general public may catch a glimpse of this ethereal existence. For instance, on April 5, 1991, ABC's "20/20" broadcast the first televised Catholic exorcism. We watched this historic event twenty years ago and thought, regardless of ones denominational affiliation, it illustrated contemporary demonism.

While deliverance ministry such as exorcism should be carefully administered within the Church, demons play an even wider role in society that includes not only controlling or influencing individuals and small groups, but institutions and governments. Understanding how and why this is true is defined in demonological studies such as The Divine Council (a term used by Hebrew and Semitic scholars to describe the pantheon of divine beings or angels who administer the affairs of heaven and earth) where experts typically agree that, beginning at the Tower of Babel, the world and its inhabitants were disinherited by the sovereign God of Israel and placed under the authority of lesser divine beings that became corrupt and disloyal to God in their administration of those nations (Psalm 82). These beings quickly became idolized on earth as gods following Babel, giving birth to the worship of "demons" (see Acts 7:41–42, Psalms 96:5, 1 Corinthians 10:20) and the quest by fallen angels to draw mankind away from God. While the dominion of these entities and their goals are frequently overlooked, close collaboration between evil ones and unregenerate social architects operates on a regular basis outside the purview of the countless multitudes who are blinded to their reality. Behind governors, legislators, presidents, dictators, and even religious leaders, these wicked spiritual powers move about unrestricted, controlling the machine of ecclesiastical and civil governments as freely as they are allowed. Whenever such principalities recognize a religious or political body that has become a force for moral good, they set about through a sophisticated labyrinth of visible and invisible representatives to bring that organization down one righteous soul at a time.

It is within this concealed arena of evil supernaturalism that unregenerate men are organized. Under demonic influence, they are orchestrated within a great evil system (or empire) described in various scriptural passages as a satanic order. In more than thirty important biblical texts, the Greek New Testament employs the term kosmos, describing this "government behind government." It is here that human ego, separated from God, becomes hostile to the service of mankind while viewing people as commodities to be manipulated in the ministration of fiendish ambition. Some expositors believe the origins of this phenomenon began in the distant past, when a fire in the minds of angels caused Lucifer to exalt himself above the good of God’s creation. The once-glorified spirit, driven mad by an unequivocal thirst to rule, conquer, and dominate, spawned similar lust between his followers, which continues today among agents of dark power who guard a privileged "cause-and-effect" symmetry between visible and invisible personalities.

At Satan's desire, archons command this supernatural, geopolitical sphere, dominating kosmokrators (rulers of darkness who work in and through human counterparts), who in turn command spirits of lesser rank until every level of earthly government, secular and religious, can be touched by this influence. If we could see through the veil into this domain, we would find a world alive with good against evil, a place where the ultimate prize is the souls of men and where legions war for control of its cities and people. With vivid testimony to this, Satan offered to Jesus all the power and the glory of the governments of this world. Satan said, "All this power [control] will I give thee, and the glory of them [earthly cities]: for that is delivered unto me: and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine" (Luke 4:6-7).

According to the Epistle of the Ephesians, it is this dominion, not flesh and blood, where opposition to God's will on earth is initiated. Whereas people and institutions often provide the "face" on our problems, the conflict originates beyond them, in this place where unseen forces scheme.

  1. Thank you Tom and Nita for answering the call. I couldn't help but think of our court houses and system during the DR Cho account.

  2. I'm enjoying more scriptural references in ya'alls excerpt of your new book. Lookin forward to it!

  3. The timing of this new series couldn't be better. The concept is frightening, but who can run away? Hopefully you will provide information that allows us pastors to break this down into lessons for Sunday school.

  4. I'd like to relate something along these same lines that happened to me once. I was in a group, & I was in charge of the boys, & we were all sleeping in what we called "The Boys Room." Basically it was the living room of an old farm house. This was outside of Rocky Mount, VA. The year was 1972 & I was only 17. We always had someone stay up all night to basically sit on guard duty, so I was praying with this brother & instructing him that the most important thing to do was not to fall asleep. I told him if he did, he would let the devil in. Boy, was I in for a shock!
    He had the Alexander Scorby's Bible reading on cassette tapes, so he could listen to the word all night. I prayed with him, then went over to my bed to go to sleep.
    I fell asleep quickly & immediately started having a nightmare. I don't remember what the dream was about, but I sort of woke up & I physically felt a weight on my chest & something was choking me! I had no idea what it was. I guess I had sleep paralysis, as all I could do was mutter though clenched teeth, "JESUS". Immediately, the weight on my chest came off & I wasn't being choked anymore. I got up to go ask the guy who was on guard duty to pray for me, & lo & behold, to my amazement, he was fast asleep.
    So I can relate to Brother Cho's vision. These things are real & do happen. All I can do is just relate what happened to me. I was a new convert, having been saved about a year. I was really into studying & memorizing the Bible at the time. I would memorize whole chapters at a time, so I know the Devil & his cohorts didn't like me too much.
    God Bless you Tom for reveling these things to us. I'm sure others have had experiences along these same line, so don't be afraid to share them. We are not to be ignorant of the Devils devices.

  5. One night i woke up and i was paralyzed, i couldn't even open my mouth to talk, i felt to scared, so i called on the name of Jesus in my mind, and kept doing it until, i shouted his name, and whatever was mkaing me paralyzed went away.

    beginning at the Tower of Babel, the world and its inhabitants were disinherited by the sovereign God of Israel and placed under the authority of lesser divine

    being a simple man didnt the above occur in the Garden of Eden and if not why not?

  7. interesting article. that comment on sleep paralysis is more common than you think. often times people wake up from dream with impressions, sometimes bad, sometimes good. there is communication going on somehow. one site that i found that was very informative was - try it, it has all kinds of avenues of info. - sasha

  8. Please allow me to elaborate on the current final thoughts of the subjects in the final pragraph. Your every bit correct to assume the struggle of power and the involvment of demons as an ex demonologist I know all to well their involvment in everything even the lives of indaviduals. And as far as the coment on if you could see through the veil, all I can say is that as someone who was cursed with the ability to see them like you would see other people you honestly dont want to because its much more unnerving than you would think. So my suggestion is that you pray unceasingly to the lord Jesus Christ for his intercetion on our nations behalf because without it we are but a breath away from the extermination of the church and the unrestrained elimination of the saints.

  9. as dr.cho learned and i know for a fact,dreams can become a battlefield,where the evil ones attack and destroy many in there sleep.i know this because i have fought there many times,and for sure i did not win everytime,yet his name alone has saved me over and over,this war is real and soon will appear in this reality in full veiw we will see the unseen,and some already i thank our LORD AND REDEEMER JESUS CHRIST,HOLY AND POWERFUL IS HIS NAME.GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

  10. I strongly believe that our Lord Jesus Christ will protect His own - whatever happens, if a person has been redeemed you can rest assured that He has kept (will keep) you from this demonic activity - many Christians are affected by demonic suppression because there sin grieves the Holy Spirit.
    The reason why so many Christians are confused by the 'meeting in the air event' is because they do not understand the difference between the marriage of the Lamb (Church) event and the marriage of GOD event (tribulation Jews) event.
    If you are Saved, you will be taken out by Jesus in the air. When the Holy Spirit holds back (restraining the anti c) will be the time of Jacobs troubles or what is known as the tribulation period. What horror when considering "The Forbidden Gates", also Matthew 24 was was written before the Church (no Christians) was even conceived - Jesus was speaking to the Jew (mainly) pray always that the Lord will keep you from that hour!

  11. It is now common knowledge that many people are into demon-worship and they do it willingly and consciously.I remember the first time the Lord allowed me a glimpse of the Spirit World,I was so shocked to find that there exists another world and there people carry out various activities just like this physical world.However many of these activities have an evil bearing.
    I could recognise many people although many tried to avoid me.I remember telling them that I was aware that I was speaking to them in the spirit world and that God is calling them to repentance urgently.
    Here in the spirit world satanists interact with demon-spirits and other evil beings freely.
    I have been allowed by the Lord on many other occasions to see and also participate in many spirit world battles whereby many evil beings have been destroyed.
    By the way,people should know that we are into the final days of Satan's rulership here on earth.The Book of Revelation chapter 18 is being fulfilled.The battle cry is "Fallen,Fallen is Babylon the Great..."
    Many Satan's secrets are bound to be exposed as his kingdom falls apart.

  12. Is this really a true story(demon dream and healing)? I question things like this because they seem outside the realm of the normal in my lifes experience. I have never had a dream like this and dont know anyone who has- I'm not saying it didnt happen, but I question if this isnt just a made up story. I cant ever remember seeing a person miraculously healed in my life either, not anything other than just a faked televangelist blowing smoke up peoples rear. I think that Jesus really did work miracles, and its possible for others to work miracles, I've just never seen a real one happen in my life. - Very seriously ---Bobaloo

  13. I think people need to be careful saying that the "devil" comes through in dreams. I think our dreams are a release of all tensions of the mind, people have nightmares and night terrors because of different physical reasons of what is going on in the seems these days people are in universal psychosis they are seeing or thinking of the "evil one" in everything,the mind contains all we see and hear even if we cannot remember or even paid any attention to what we saw or heard, then in a dream images or words or colors or pictures come in and people take that as an evil enity coming through, i think this is the one "big lie" also, people thinking these things. it keeps your mind on satan so to speak instead of God/spirit. it becomes mass hysteria which is not good.

  14. This is hilarious trash. Poor religious fools. Although I guess if it wasn't the authors, someone else will make money off of the gullible.

  15. The author has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: No truth is universal, everything has its exception. Thanks for the info VigRX Plus

  16. It's hard to believe all that you say, please give us some proofs!

  17. I really love the work that you have been doing as of late, so thank you so much for everything that you have been sharing with us.

  18. I've been fascinated for the last couple months following Tom Horn's posts about end times issues. But, it's disappointing to see David Cho and his "visions" taken so seriously. I hope T. H. doesn't believe Cho's teachings are Biblical. Cho is a word-faith heretic, and should be shunned.

    T. H.'s view of the RCC isn't clear to me either. As a born-again EX-Catholic, I wish Mr. Horn would make his view of the RCC less ambiguous.

  19. Hey Chuck64,

    Please give me an example where Pastor Cho's teachings are not Biblical. Visions are in the Bible and so is faith in the Word. What part of the speaks of a heretic?

  20. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often. Prediksi Bola Agen Bola Online
