He's Master-RING You: Part 3

The Ringmaster, guides crowds through a world of splendor and amazement at the circus while sporting a fresh top hat! "Welcome to the circus!", he shouts, "I will be your Master for the day, so just sit back and enjoy the show". This circus scene should sound familiar to you, as you have given audience to it most of your adult life. A spectator with a glazed over stare, allowing yourself to be immersed in pleasure as your master guides your mind. Our hedonistic tendencies should be taken seriously because we tend to look for leaders who will tickle our ears and inebriate our minds.

In the 20th & 21st centuries, a proliferation of 'top hats' can be seen in movies, music, and media. A quick Internet image search of pop icons & trend setters (such as The Beatles, Madonna, T-Pain, just to name a few) will result in finding many of these "artists" posing with 'top hats'. But why the 'top hat' for the artist?

Let us go back the the beginning: infancy. The human brain and the human genitalia share the same starting point on the inside of an embryo. This knowledge was known to most eastern cultures hundreds of years before Europeans hijacked this understanding. Sigmund Freud, became famous and started a whole new wave of psychology/psychiatry when he unveiled to the western world the connection between the mind and sexuality. Many Freudian ideas dealt with the sub-conscious/dream state.

Sigmund Freud often pointed out in his psychology that in dreams the 'top hat' represents a phallic symbol. In Freud's psychological wonderland, these phallic's show a desire to harness unbridled sexual energy. While Freud dealt with the human sub-conscious, the conscious mind always finds a way to yield itself to suggestions that appease its lustful appetite. But the phallic goes beyond symbolizing lust for sensual thirsts.

The phallic represents unchallengeable power; we see this symbology all over the world, specifically in places where hubris and pride go unchallenged. (Think of symbols like the Washington Monument [yes the great obelisk], church steeples, the pope's hat & St. Peter's Basilica [yes the great pedophiles], wizard & witch hats [yes Mickey Mouse & Harry Potter], Empire State building [yes Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind"], Eiffel Tower, etc. ). The phallic symbol announces to the unconscious masses: "I AM your master, do whatever I tell you to do". And for centuries the stupefied masses have been dancing to the masters tune without question. Just like Frosty (The Snowman), who's' short shallow existence reached its apex when his master's 'top hat' found its way onto his head. Dancing, playing, thumping his life away even though it was a hot day, that jolly & happy soul melted away.

Ever heard of John Bull? Of course not, we live in the U.S. not the U.K. John Bull was the British version (also the predecessor) of Uncle Sam. Both of these 'Top Hat' wearing characters recruited millions of young men into war over the last couple of centuries. The familiar motto's of these caricatures was simple and to the point. "Is it You?" in Great Britain and "I Want You!" in the United States.

Both of these slogans are designed to emulate a superior masculine entity who exerts his strength on young naive teenage boys. Coaxing them to enter into a system that will turn them into "real men" or "hero's". It is no accident that World War I servicemen were given the nickname "dough boys". As stated before, the phallic symbol plays the psychological role of 'master'. Whether you see the image or not the fact remains the same, weekend after weekend, year after year, the more you allow yourself to be mastered, the closer you get toward annihilation. In Matthew 7:24-28, Jesus Christ stated: "So, everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on bedrock. The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the winds blew and beat against that house, but it didn't collapse, because its foundation was on rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the wind blew and beat against that house, and it collapsed -- and its collapse was horrendous!" When Yahshua had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at the way he taught...". The Lord Jesus Christ points out that the structural integrity of a house correlates to the integrity of your life, actions and values. Do we have a solid enough spiritual foundation & value system to be able to withstand the trials in life? The floods will come, the heavy rain and the storms are beating upon us right now, so the question remains: will we continue to stay plugged in dancing to the tune of a master who wants to kill us. The delusional & fallacious rapper Jay-Z made a song entitled "Young Forever" in this song he states:

'And it never ends cause all we have to do is hit rewind
So let's just stay in the moment, smoke some weed, drink some wine
Reminisce, talk some *bleep*, forever young is in your mind
Leave a mark they can't erase, neither space nor time
So when the director yells cut, I'll be fine
I'm, forever young'

Dark entities will tell you what you want to hear but deep down inside we know what the end will be. In the Bible, the Israelites would sometimes sacrifice their children to an idol god called 'Tophet' in exchange for prosperity & good fortune. When the vowels are removed the word 'top hat' has a strong emtomological link to the hebrew word 'tpht' or 'tophet'. The place where this would happen was called "the valley of the sons of Hinnom"; and in this valley would be a gigantic bonfire that would have a walkway going through it. The children would then be forced to walk through these walls of fire, most of the time killing them. From this atrocity, the Biblical concept of Hell and the word 'Gehenna' (which means 'Hell') were born. The LORD instructed them not to do these types of heinous unmerciful acts. And when they would not listen He told them that their acts would be accounted for and that the harm, agony and pain that they inflicted on others would not go unpunished.

The asinine lyrics of the demented rapper above can only be described as "normal" when one looks at the state of the world today. But we must all face accountability and when the Director yells cut you will not be fine... even with your 'top hat' on!
