The Owl Cult: Ancient and the End Times Demon Worship

OWLS sure do seem popular these days for some reason...
OWLS sure do seem popular these days for some reason…

While waiting in the parking lot of a large national food chain store recently, this writer’s attention was drawn to a display outside of large ceramic owls.  Over three dozen of them.  There were no other large (2 or three feet high) ceramic statues.  Just owls.  Why owls?  These birds seemed to be in front of ALL of the chain’s stores–at least the ones this writer later visited.

Again: why an owl?

World Owl Mythology

The owl has been a bird often mentioned in pagan mythology and is also mentioned in the Bible 18 times.  Leviticus 11:13-20 calls the owl an “abomination among fowls.”  It mentions owls three different times.  Deuteronomy 14:12-19 says practically the same thing.

Isaiah 13, which tells of the “burden of Babylon,” mentions owls in 13:21 after the desolation of Babylon.

But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.

Nearly one-fourth of the verses of Isaiah 34–which describes the LORD’s wrath and fury being poured out at the Day of the Lord–speak of owls.  And none of them in a good way. Of course, the newer translations substitute “Lilith” (a demoness) for “owl.

A sample is Isaiah 34:13

And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.

Also mentioned in the Bible is the Caananite god, Moloch (sometimes spelled “Molech”).  Moloch was the god that required child sacrifice–child sacrifice by fire.  Deuteronomy 18:10 is referring to Moloch.  God calls this practice of child sacrifice an “abomination.”

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Leviticus 18:21 and 20:2 both specifically refer to Molech.

And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

In spite of God’s quite clear pronouncements on the subject, there were Israelites who sacrificed their children to Moloch.  2 Kings 16:1-4 tells the story of Ahaz, who sacrificed his son (“made his son pass through the fire“).

In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign. Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord his God, like David his father. But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, yea, and made his son to pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel. And he sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

There were pagan kings who did the same–and as the Bible tells us that there is a demon behind every pagan god and idol–with great effect.  In 2 Kings 3:27, the King of Moab offered his son as a burnt offering and it turned the tide of battle for him.

Down through the years, worship of Moloch and other demons has been connected with owls. Although it is usually mentioned that sacrifice children to Moloch was for fertility, it was also done to ensure prosperity.

Molech: Owl worship

Lileth the demoness and owls

Joel Rosenberg – God’s “peace process” and an owl

What does this have to do with the annual two-week-long gathering of the world’s elite outside San Francisco to sacrifice to a 20-foot-tall owl statue? Can all this explain why owls are hidden in the street layout of Washington DC, on US currency and in other strange places?

Including stacked in front of large food chain stores?

Other cults place the seemingly ubiquitous stars found on the outsides of their houses, as well as wreathes (sometimes both).

However, possibly the only end times cult bigger than the one dedicated to owls is the one obsessed with cats–though, no doubt, there’s a lot of overlap between the two groups.

Has the reader placed his hopes and trust in a demon cult?

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
