Satan’s Throne: Are You Prepping with Spiritual Situational Awareness?

We are huge proponents of embracing the doctrine of situation awareness. While, most preppers maintain it with regards to our physical environment, we assert it’s far more critical to manifest spiritual situational awareness. The world is engaged in a spiritual battle. If we only focus on our immediate surroundings, we miss the most important part of the story—the invisible component that is responsible for driving the visible manifestations we see. In this article, we are going to explore Satan’s Throne—from its original location in the city of Pergamum to its current location in Berlin Germany—and discern what it can tell us about the spiritual battle unfolding around us.

When we only apply situational awareness to the physical realm, we are limited ourselves to a reactive posture rather than taking pro-active anticipatory actions. The goal of situational awareness is to recognize potential events—especially risky ones—BEFORE they happen so that we can take pro-active, anticipatory steps to avoid and/or mitigate them.

C.S. Lewis wisely wrote in The Screwtape Letters: “The game [of Satan] is to have them all running about with fire extinguishers when there is a flood, and all crowding to that side of the boat which is already nearly gunwale under.” This is precisely what happens when we focus exclusively on the physical world and lack situational awareness regarding the spiritual realm.

If our physical environment is being shaped by spiritual forces, then it is critical that we recognize and understand those unseen drivers—both our physical preparedness and eternal security depend on it!

Spiritual Awareness: Why It Is Critical to Have It!

The Apostle Paul provides us with a critical piece of information regarding the need for spiritual situational awareness:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

He is telling us that—behind all the people, places, and things we see around us—there are unseen drivers in the spiritual realm.

Specifically, Paul tells us that (1) our ultimate enemy is spiritual in nature, (2) our spiritual enemy is powerful, (3) our spiritual enemy is highly organized, and (4) our enemy is exceedingly wicked.

The Bible provides us with a lot of intel on what the enemy’s plan is (a.k.a. where the world is going). However, we must utilize the events taking place around us in the physical world (i.e., the “flesh and blood”) to connect the dots and anticipate how the battle is going to transpire—we must have an effective level of situational awareness both spiritually and physically.

It is no different than using intel reports on troop movements, buildups, or other activity to construct an accurate picture of a physical enemy in order to understand its tactics, strategies, and goals—to be able to effectively anticipate its moves in order to eliminate or mitigate the threat.

Now, I know that many preppers dismiss the spiritual realm. They pride themselves in being pragmatic realists. However, I assure you that it is as real as that round you have chambered in your rifle or gun.

Make no mistake about it, the globalist New World Order leaders absolutely believe it to their very core—they are all deeply involved in the occult and worshipping Satan (under many different names). They understand where their power comes from—though they have chosen the wrong side.

However, they don’t want you to understand it! They want the common folks in the dark. They want you limited to reacting to physical circumstances. Why? Because it makes you much more predictable and far easier to control—by both earthly rulers and, ultimately, Satan. Their goal is for you to become entirely dependent on them.

There is power in knowledge—in situational awareness. It provides you with freedom. As we continue to move towards an authoritative global government, the spiritual principalities, powers, and rulers (the army of Satan)—and our earthly rulers—want us fumbling around in the dark and the fog of war.

If there is one thing that we find repeated over and over and over again in Scripture—especially as we get closer and closer to the return of Christ, it is the exhortation to “not be deceived.” As we approach these crazy and treacherous last days, God repeatedly tells us to watch, guard, and contend for the truth—to not be deceived!

Why? Because we face a wicked and powerful spiritual enemy—one that is extremely adept at using psyops to deceive the masses in order to quietly control and conquer them. If we fail to recognize this and maintain an appropriate level of spiritual situational awareness, we will inevitably succumb to being deceived.

A perfect example of this spiritual awareness is found in Satan’s throne…

Satan’s Throne: Bible Declares Satan Dwelled in the City of Pergamos

In the Book of Revelation, we find Christ Himself speaking to the Apostle John. He has John record a series of messages—one for each of the seven churches in Asia Minor. In his message to the church at Pergamos, we find Jesus declaring:

“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is… where Satan dwells”‘” (Revelation 2:12-13).

Christ tells us that Satan had a literal throne (or seat of power) in the city of Pergamos at the time of John recording the message to the seven churches in Asia Minor—and it is where Satan dwelled on the earth.

This was yet another example of Satan to imitating God—Who had dwelled (or tabernacle) with His chosen people the Jews in the Temple in Jerusalem. Satan had his temple in Pergamos—and he dwelt in it and commanded his forces from it.

Not coincidentally, all the ancient pagan mysteries and “craft” (a.k.a. witchcraft) came from the city of Pergamos. After all, the ancient city of Pergamum, or Pergamon, was the center of pagan worship in Asia Minor.

Furthermore, it is interesting that Christ’s letters to the seven churches in Revelation were not only literal letters to actual physical churches during John’s day, but they are also considered to characterize seven distinct periods of church history.

Many believe the “Pergamos” period of church history began in 313-325AD with the founding of the Roman Catholic Church. We find the Roman Empire Constantine winning a critical battle in 313AD, which caused him to turn the empire towards “Christianity.” In 325AD, the Roman Catholic Church was officially created as a product of cooperation between Constantine and the Council of Nicaea.

This product—the Roman Catholic Church—was an ungodly mix of church and state (Rome & Christianity), replete with a blending in of all things pagan.

In other words, Satan’s seat (throne) was not only physically located in Pergamos during John’s time, but it become spiritually located in the Roman Catholic Church—which many, including myself, contend is Mystery Babylon (cf. Revelation 17)—the one-world false religious system of the Tribulation period and the seat of the False Prophet.

To learn more about these subjects and improve your spiritual situational awareness, checkout our articles:

Since this time, history has witnessed an endless stream of brutal, blood-thirsty persecution of Christians from the Roman Catholic Church (following in the footsteps of the Roman Empire itself). As such, it would certainly seem the religious seat of Satan can validly be applied to Rome.

If the False Prophet (a.k.a. the Pope) is tied to this religious seat or throne of Satan, then it is equally reasonable to consider that the Antichrist would be tied to Satan’s physical (governmental or administrative) seat or throne.

This raises a huge question: What happened to Satan’s throne in Pergamos?

Satan’s Throne: The Journey from Pergamon to Berlin

The throne of Satan was a literal temple constructed on one of the terraces of the acropolis of the ancient Greek city of Pergamon in Asia Minor. This temple—and its altar—was dedicated to the worship of Zeus (a.k.a. Satan himself). From this temple, perpetual sacrifices were offered to him upon the towering and famous 40-foot high altar.

Interestingly, Jesus tells John that Antipas was martyred in the very city—likely burned alive on this very altar:

“Even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth” (Revelation 2:13).

Whatever happened to this temple and altar—the throne of Satan?

In 1864, German engineer and archeologist Carl Humann began exploring the ancient city of Pergamum. What did he find? The Alter of Zeus—which has been labeled by some as “one of antiquities greatest monuments.”

In 1878, he began official excavations on the acropolis of Pergamon, an effort that lasted until 1886.

And get this… The altar itself was relocated—stone by stone—to Berlin Germany.

In Berlin, it was painstakingly reassembled by Italian restoration experts—with ties to the Roman Catholic Church no doubt. You can’t make this stuff up folks.

A new museum was erected in 1901 on Berlin’s Museum Island to house the exhibit. However, because this first Pergamon Museum proved to be both inadequate and structurally unsound, it was demolished in 1909 and replaced with a much larger museum, which opened to the public in 1930—the present day Pergamon Museum.

Not coincidentally, this museum also featured an exhibit featuring a famous reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate of ancient Babylon—the ultimate origin of Satan’s false religious system.

The Pergamum exhibit included a reconstructed model of the entire temple:

Satan’s Throne: Ties to Hitler & Nazi Occultism?

If the story stopped there, it would be crazy enough. However, this is just the beginning. From here, we find Satan’s throne tied directly to Hitler (a type or forerunner of the coming Antichrist) and Nazi occultism.

The Nazi Party’s chief architect, Albert Speer, was commissioned by one Adolf Hitler to design the parade grounds for the party rallies in Nuremberg. Speer turned to Satan’s Throne for inspiration. Using the altar as a model, Speer designed and constructed a massive grandstand, known as the Zeppelin tribune.

The Nazi Party—especially the inner circle—was extremely occultic and, quite literally, worshipped Satan. There is no doubt they understood the symbolism behind Satan’s throne and believed in its power.

This Zeppelin tribune—a colossal representation of Satan’s throne (aka Altar of Zeus) originally located in Pergamum—produced exactly what Hitler was seeking: a cultic, mystic presence. This was heightened even further by holding their rallies at night, replete with thousands of Nazi Party members marching in processions with torches and hundreds of searchlights casting a massive light column over the grounds for miles into the night sky—earning it the nickname “Cathedral of Light.”

The connection between “light” and Satan (a.k.a. Lucifer) should not surprise anyone with spiritual situational awareness!

It was from this very location—the representation of the throne or altar of Satan (now physically located in Berlin)—that Hitler announced his Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1935.

CFI-USA also notes:

“It was also in Nuremberg that Hitler used the phrase Final Solution for the first time in public. Hitler’s Final Solution is known as the Holocaust, a word that comes from a Greek word meaning ‘a wholly burnt animal sacrifice.’ On the ancient Altar of Zeus in Pergamom, burnt sacrifice was practiced [including humans such as Antipas]. Centuries later in German’s Nuremberg, in the redesigned Pergamon Altar, Hitler announced his Final Solution to the world and this time, the burnt sacrifice was six million Jews.”

Altar of Satan: Demonic Ties to Barack Hussein Obama?

Once again, the story refuses to fade away into the dusty annals of history. Rather, as would be expected if there really is a spiritual connection to Satan himself, it only continues to evolve—including recent ties to one Barack Hussein Obama.

It was reported by numerous sources that Obama visited the actual throne of Satan in the Pergamon Museum at Berlin.

Even more interesting, upon his return to America, Obama immediately commissioned the construction of a stage from which he would make his acceptance speech for his party’s nomination at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado.

In fact, he had it designed specifically to model the Pergamon Altar to Zeus (Satan’s Throne) that he had visited in Berlin.

While his campaign managers tried to explain away the appearance of the stage as merely being symbolic of the White House and Capital, a multitude of experts agreed that it was a replica of the Great Altar of Pergamum.

You be the judge. Is this a representation of Satan’s throne we saw above in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin:

Finally, there was Obama’s acceptance speech made in Chicago upon winning the presidency. While it was not as detailed as the stage earlier stage in Denver, it still embraced the same imagery in the background and the podium still extended out to the very spot the actual Altar of Zeus would have been located in.

Even more interesting was the use of spotlights behind the stage to create—reminiscent of Hitler’s Zeppelin tribune—a “cathedral of light” [a.k.a. a Luciferian Cathedral] that created the same cultic, mystic presence that Hitler himself had sought.

This occultic presence was—intentionally—directed at creating an emotional and spiritual reaction among Obama’s followers. A feeling that their messiah had arrived to save them. As one tearful woman in the crowd put it, “The energy is shifting. There is a transformational shift happening—consciousness is being raised.” (Sound a little occultic to you?)

Barack Obama’s 2008 election night rally in Grant Park, Chicago—Luciferian Cathedral of Light?

It was Obama’s 2008 visit to Berlin that marked the speech he gave to 200,000 hysterical people that catapulted him to rockstar status on the world stage. A speech in which he declared his globalist desire:

“The walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand. These now are the walls we must tear down.”

In total, Obama made six visits to Germany during his presidency—the most of any country he visited. He repeatedly met with his globalist buddy Chancellor Angela Merkel, including at Berlin in June 2013 and November 2016. (Note: He also visited France six times—a country closely tied to both the NWO and a unified European empire)

During his last trip abroad as president, Obama travelled to Berlin—revisiting the very spot where his presidential journey had begun in 2008.

Obama travels back to Berlin to fellowship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel… and visit Satan’s Throne?

Furthermore, his first post-presidency “diplomatic” trip was to… you guessed it… Berlin, where he met with Merkel. And he has made numerous trips back to Germany since then… more than likely visiting Satan’s throne.

To this day, Obama continues to employ messianic imagery in his speeches. To learn more, I encourage you to read our article Obama “Tearing Back Curtains”—Time to Prep for Apocalypse?


Some believe Obama is the coming Antichrist—and there are plenty of biblical connections to make that case. Others say Emmanuel Macron is the coming Antichrist—and, again, there are plenty of biblical connections to make that case as well.

The point I’m trying to make is that, regardless of who actually emerges as the Antichrist (the global NWO leader), Satan is behind the scenes directing the emerging NWO (his “church”)—just as he has done since the city of Babylon and the city of Pergamum.

Satan still has his earthly thrones and is conducting his wicked business from them. He has an unseen demonic organization that he actively uses to shape and transform both (1) the people that serve and worship him and (2) world events. He has power (limited but significant) and a plan.

We have seen his seat (or throne) of power shift from Asia Minor to the Roman Catholic Church (his one-world false religious system) and the European Union (his coming one-world government). These developments are like intel snapshots of troop movements—snapshots that can provide insights into the spiritual enemy hidden behind them.

As such, it would make sense that we would want to understand what God—Who has declared the end from the beginning—has told us regarding what is about to happen in the world… to have spiritual situational awareness!

Now, it is important that we always predicate our spiritual awareness on the Word of God—not our emotions or the opinions of people. Remember, it is increasingly easy to be manipulated and deceived—something we want to avoid at all cost! You should definitely read our article Spiritual Prepping 101: Be Like a Berean & Test Everything to ensure you have the right foundation!

Remember, effective prepping requires both physical and spiritual situational awareness!

As always, hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and—in all things—pray!
