Mysteries Beyond the Shadows
The Serpentine Prophecy:
The story you weren’t supposed to hear . . .
There is an ancient lie—a disturbing thread that ties our present to the distant past. What are the whispers that emerge from age-old tombs, speaking of things that move beyond the shadows? Are there dark influences and unspoken forces that have been quietly driving humanity from the very dawn of civilization . . . and if there are, where are they trying to take us?
Join hundreds of churches throughout North America in hosting The Serpentine Prophecy, which debuts on April 21, 2022. The sessions build on each other, giving your guests greater biblical understanding while simultaneously whetting their appetite for even more study.
Here’s a little about what is presented at each of the four sessions.
The Secret of Room 217
The Stanley Hotel is one of the most haunted places in the world: tourists regularly report strange happenings all over the property. But perhaps the most haunted spot of all is the notorious Room 217, where a famous author once spent a fitful night and came away with the plot for one of Hollywood’s most successful horror films. What, exactly, is happening behind that door? Your audience will discover that the story begins not in the twentieth century when the hotel was built, but thousands of years earlier, when mysterious, shadowy figures began to concoct a tale that has survived for millennia.
Every so often, someone will claim that the four gospels found in the New Testament are not the only authentic versions of Jesus’ life and ministry. There are other hidden accounts, like the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Judas. Where did these alternate stories come from? And why do they bear such a striking resemblance to the ancient mystery schools of Egypt? How much of these stories actually made it into mainline western Christian thought?
We’ll be tracking ancient pagan esoteric thought through the city of Alexandria and following it all the way down to the nineteenth century, when it suddenly set the stage for one of the worst atrocities in human history: the death camps of World War II.
