‘Burning Man’ Draws 68,000 To America’s Largest Pagan Cult Gathering

The art theme this year is ‘Cult Cargo’ and focuses on a strange being called John Frum. 'He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere,...

“Then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.” Ezekiel 20:7

The adherents to this religion are appropriately called “burners”, and the Burning Man Pagan Festival began like this:

“Burning Man stems from a small group of free-spirited artists in the San Francisco area who got together to burn a wooden effigy on the beach in 1986; and the little beach event has grown to an annual gathering of nearly 70,000 attendees and has moved to the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, where hippies, yuppies and wannabe bohemians of every type meet up and enjoy a week of crazy self-expression, self-reliance and communal craziness.” source – Explorer News

But the reality of the Burning Man is much closer to worship of the gods of the underworld than it is to Woodstock. Every manner of perversion and occultic practice is on open display during the annual Labor Day Weekend extravaganza. This is Old Testament Baal worship on overdrive. Here is a report on this year’s Burning Man theme:

“By morning on Wednesday, there were 15 streets circling the temporary city created by attendees and the forecast remains free of dust storms. Many have been impressed by the size and look of this year’s Man Base, a structure that houses the iconic ‘Man’ figure burned each year near the event’s close. Inside a flying saucer under the Man is a multi-level structure with zoetropes, a giant chandelier and views of Black Rock City. Slides serve as exits. 


Everything that the Bible says that God hates, like idol worship and sacrificing to false gods, is on full display all week long.

The art theme this year is ‘Cult Cargo’ and focuses on a strange being called John Frum. ‘He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, “Bob,”‘ reads the website. ‘His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. ‘Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?'” source – Daily Mail UK


One of the many temples in Burning Man City. You can clearly see the All-Seeing Eye of Horus, various fallen angels, and leaders of the Satanist movement.

Bringing back the gods

The leaders of this massive gathering have a stated, open and obvious aim: to prepare their followers for the appearance of a mystical man from Outer Space to lead them. And with nearly 70,000 worshippers in attendance, this pagan church in the desert is rapidly spreading their religion. Of course, regular readers of the bible know exactly who this man is. The bible describes him this way:


The “grand finale’ of Burning Man 2013 is a Genesis 6 giant-sized man burning in the everlasting torments and flames of Hell. Party on, people, it’s gonna be a rude awakening.

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” Revelation 13:13,14

The Devil and all His followers are fascinated with fire and things burning. This is easy to understand as Hell is filled with fire and those there will burn forever and ever. The ironic twist to it all is that the Devil Himself will burn in the fires of His own Hell.


The massive, sprawling expanse of this year’s Burning Man festival with it’s city in the shape of a UFO.

It is no coincidence that as we get closer to the end times events described in the Bible, that the dark underworld of Satan will dramatically rise and assume a larger and larger role in our everyday society. Everything that the Burning Man festivals stand for is described in the Bible as things that God hates. False gods, idol worship, the groves…all these things incurred God’s wrath on the practicers.

“But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.” Ezekiel 20: 8

The time is short, the hour has grown late and the sky above us is ever-darkening. All those who practice these abominations and spit in the face of the Holy God of Israel will one Day soon feel the wrath that fell upon the people of Noah’s day in the flood, and Lot’s day with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Tear down your idols and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save you.

Before it’s too late.

Psalm 36:1 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.

2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.

4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy… Read more »

My hair stands up. I live in Northern Co and when I moved here 23 yrs ago, it was rumored a lot of Cult activity. I know there are Palm readers in towns near and we had one shop here in town and we prayed and after awhile they left. Our HS Mascot on the HUGE walls is a wizard and I cant look at it. even when I worked in the kitchen facing it. This is freaky

August 31, 2013 11:51 am

Amen!!! Teresa, There is so much going on around the world. Not just this abomination called the burning man. So many cults small and large in every corner of this world, so many people are doing what Romans 1 says changing the incorruptible God into the corruptible things of man through their vain imaginations and thus they are turned over to a debased mind. God Bless You Teresa!!! Keep up the good work. Frank

August 31, 2013 12:25 pm

Good Morning Frank, I tried to find more info on this and its blurry or ? I got that it is not a real person but yet they think he/it will save them? I need to read it better. I just read Veronica I think is one and a Christian? Just not sure how that works but will ask her! You have a great day w the Lord!

August 31, 2013 3:45 pm

Well I got to admit, they have the right title for their gathering. Because that is what they will be, if they don’t repent and come to Jesus…Burning man!!! Burning in Hell!! :-)

August 31, 2013 3:50 pm

@ Frank, big problem is that is coming into the churches in huge waves. Many so called pastors, now are accepting New Age techniques and teachings. And the people blindly follow, because they do not know the Word of God for themselves! Fools, blind leading the blind!! I’d say this is all a big start of the Great falling away, the Bible talks about. It’s really all about self worship. They think if they worship the false gods, that they will eventually become gods themselves. What a crock!!! May the Lord help… Read more »

a lot of people are praying for thinkers like you. no not the painting what represents obviously you do not understand. What would an UN Closed Minded Christian say certainly not what you referenced in re to the Topic of today. He would say to speak truth in Love which was said on here today. The hate came from your side, and really you talk about what the Bible says and use profanity? That in itself says you know NOTHING at all about Jesus Christ. You have a good day.

September 3, 2013 12:07 pm

Amen Teresa B.
Where is the NTEB moderator? Profanity is not supposed to be allowed on this site.

September 3, 2013 12:30 pm

Good Morning, who knows where anyone is on here! I am only on to talk when my name appears, soon as that’s done then ghandi I am. Don’t want to be rude:)
You have a wonderful day w the Lord!

September 3, 2013 1:02 pm

@Teresa B., I understand and agree. There is something “wrong” here on this site. But, as I’ve said before, it did not use to be this way.
I’m thinking about moving on too.
I have your email address. Will do so soon.
You have a Blessed Day.

September 3, 2013 1:07 pm

thank you mam, yes not for me. Am glad others feel blessed tho! Yes write me want to ask you something privately :)

August 30, 2013 8:54 pm

Everyone, Jesus is The Way the Truth and The Life, No one Comes to The Father , but, Through Me ( Jesus Christ ).

August 30, 2013 10:09 pm

Amen Kristi Ann,
I love spontaneous prayer people. On my Fridge I have a poem:
Something happens when we pray
Powers of darkness lose their sway
We gain strength and fears give way
THEREFORE Let us pray!

August 30, 2013 10:13 pm

Hi Kevin good to see you, thank you for that Poem/Prayer! Hope all is well, Blessings in His Name

August 31, 2013 3:55 pm

@Kristi, while I appreciate your sweet prayer, and they certainly need prayer, and they certainly need the Lord in their hearts. I have to tell you that Satan and his evil plans will continue until Jesus comes back! Then Christ will toss him into the pit for a 1,000 years! But until then, him and his plans will continue. I’m sure you already knew that. It’s all written in the Bible dear. All will go according to Gods wonderful plan. Take heart God is on the Throne, and his plan is the big one,… Read more »

There is a burning man festival right here in Washington State, too at a place called “The Gorge”. I think it is at some Columbia River Gorge, not sure, but it is a celebration from hell from what I have heard. Disgraceful.

August 31, 2013 4:00 pm

This is just my thoughts, but I can see these things increasing all over the US and all over the world. Bringing the world into “unity” so then the Anti-christ can come on the scene, and be the powerful, enlightened one they have been seeking for…hmmm, just a thought!!! :-) Glory to God, it is all getting closer!! Keep your eyes open, and be looking for the Lord to be setting all things up for his return, he is even using these fools!! Praise God!!

August 30, 2013 9:19 pm

I am fairly sure those ‘many’ have already heard, that is why they go. Like it has been written in Luke…they have the Bible and the prophets, let them learn from them….God’s invisible attributes make it clear to all.

Scripture Warnings that Apply to Television Viewing

The following Scripture passages have a direct application to this
issue and are a loud warning to those who have ears to hear.
Parents need to teach their children these biblical principles
and guide them in learning how to apply them to their daily lives.
It is not enough to have a list of do’s and don’ts.

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them
that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me (Psalm 101:3).

This verse single-handedly forbids the child of God to watch… Read more »

Raymond, Thank You!!! You teach us God’s Word in such an “easy to understand” way. I plan on making a hard copy of all your posting for my nightly readings. Thanks you for posting on this site.

August 31, 2013 7:55 pm

@ Raymond. Amen brother. That is a lesson for all of us. Or at least for many of us I’m sure! Thank you!

August 31, 2013 8:10 pm

Raymond this is so true. I did grow up w the old tv black and white Lucy and I do not regret it at all. And in my Westerns the good guy always won and God was always mentioned. But that was then and since then everything went to exactly as you say. That too is in the Elite plan for is all the Beakdown of Society. Thank you for this post it is very important. Blessings to you in the Lord

Christians are being silenced all across America: in the political debate,
the public square, the schools, the workplace, and even in the sanctuary
of their own churches. Read these signs of the times:

– Christians threatened with prison for protesting the homosexual agenda.

– Employees of Fortune 500 companies fired for quoting the scriptures or
forbidden to display family pictures in their office cubicles because they
offend homosexual employees.

– Christian churches ordered by the government to perform lesbian marriages.

– “Antibullying” programs explicitly promote homosexuality in public schools.

– Municipal workers forbidden by the city to say “family values”… Read more »

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this…….

Very interesting, read until the end……

It is Written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7)

‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
For whatsoever a man sow, that shall he also reap…
Here are only some men and women who mocked God:

John Lennon (Singer)
Some years before, during his interview with
An American Magazine, he said:
Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about that…
I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects
were too simple, today we are more famous than Him” (1966).

August 30, 2013 9:47 pm

The signs of the end times are everywhere. Our upcoming book The Bible According to the Future contains a large chapter on these. The strange thing is that believers often react to the signs the very opposite of how God intends for us to react.

As we witness such things as the spread of globalism, the building of a one-world church, the increase of wickedness, the breakdown of the traditional family, the destruction of that priceless bastion of liberty called America, the normalization of homosexuality, the callous murder of babies, the filthy pop culture, the breathtaking increase in governmental surveillance,… Read more »

Thank you Raymond. I concur 100 percent. Would you pray for the salvation of my daughter and her little son? Dania and Aleric. She will not listen to me.

August 31, 2013 8:56 am

How can I get in touch with you to do God’s work?

Hi Maria,
I can be reached at raymond654321@outlook.com


August 31, 2013 10:05 pm

Raymond is this written by some pastor? Then who? If you wrote it, will you come to my city and be my Pastor??? :-) We sure could use a man of God in our town!!! :-)

August 31, 2013 10:39 pm

Hi Suez:

The signs of the end times are everywhere. Our upcoming book The Bible According to the Future is written by David Cloud. His website wayoflife.org is a good site in my opinion.

It would seem I need to clear something up.
I’m 59 and have been heavily involved for years in researching certain subjects. I have a large library on various matters that interest me, Bible Prophecy being my favorite.
When I put together an article and I post it, I usually do not
put “authored by Raymond” on the article. To me it’s just
not… Read more »
