The Dark Side of the Oak Tree

You wouldn't think that something as innocent as an oak tree would receive so much attention. The image of the oak symbolizes the virtues of strength and stability. The ancient Romans thought oak trees attracted lightening and thereby connected the oak tree to Jupiter, the god of sky and thunder. His wife, Juno, was the goddess of marriage, thus the oak is a symbol of conjugal fidelity and fulfillment.

The oak tree was regarded by Socrates as an oracle tree. An oracle is one involved in divination, or someone that uses witchcraft to predict the future. The Druids, likewise, ate acorns in preparation for prophesying. In addition, the Druids believed the leaves of the oak tree had the power to heal and renew strength.[1] Through the symbol of the oak, the Druids worshiped the Supreme Deity. According to The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Hall, the secret teachings of the Druids are practically the same mysteries concealed under the allegories of Blue Lodge Masonry. [pg. 39]

It should not surprise us that Ret. Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is part of a Church that is involved in the prophetic, would select this symbol to place on his ministry logo.

The Oak tree from the Oak Initiative logo is adapted to follow "As above, so below."   
                                                      These are words that circulate throughout occult circles.
Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin holds the title of Grand Chancellor with the Vatican’s Jesuitical, “Knights of Malta.” This secret society openly displays the Vatican’s ecumenical intentions as part of the Jesuitical Counter Reformation. [2]

Boykin's website admits to being part of Billy Graham's Lausanne Movement.[3] This movement, whose goals are similar to that of the U.N. Millennium Development Goals, has expanded worldwide and have taken over the National Day of Prayer. Its goals and language are New Age, and they will likely usher-in the coming New Age [Masonic] christ.[4]

Lt. Gen. Boykin shares the oak tree symbol with another big name in Christian ministry - Rick Warren. On the cover of his Purpose Driven Life, which has sold over 30 million copies, there sits an oak tree.

Ironically, Rick Warren also has connections to the Lausanne Movement. In June 2010, Saddleback Church hosted the Lausanne Global Conversation panel at their church [5]. Additionally, Warren was on the advisory board for the 2010 Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization to be held in October in South Africa.[6]

What Boykin and Warren have in common is that they signed the Lausanne Covenant. It is an ecumenical statement crafted to unify Ecumenical Jews, Evangelicals, Charismatics and Catholics worldwide. Although it is not apparent, it embraces the Emergent Church movement.

In An Emergent Manifesto, it states:
"The Kingdom of God is already here on earth, includes all people, all faiths, and in fact is in all people and all of creation and can be felt or realized through mysticism which connects everything together as ONE.
The Lighthouse Trails editor writes...
"This new collective spirituality leads people into a socialistic community where rituals, practices, and social justice become a means of salvation, but not the salvation you think of in a personal sense of being born-again through Jesus Christ. This is a collective salvation that includes whole cultures and communities who follow the way of someone referred to as Jesus."
Ecumenism is a Roman Catholic strategy to achieve dominion over all religions. Very few Christians realize that this religious component is part of the  New World Order, and is being moved into place under the veil of the Church's Ecumenical Movement. Lt. Gen. Boykin and Rick Warren are only two players in a bigger game being played out. Beware of the oak tree.
