   Additional, and perhaps more dangerous ‘eye-doll’ idols in occult worlds, are puppets, puppet masters, ventriloquists.  In their historical and Biblical definitions, these icons––familiarly acceptable in modern society––are egregiously ominous because they portend to the kill-prone talking image of the anti-Christ in the Book of Revelation.

 In Revelation, chapter 13, the false prophet, the second ‘beast’ after the anti-Christ, will convince people to build a puppet-like image of the anti-Christ, through which the ‘prophet’ can talk.  This false prophet will have power to:  “ . . .give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed (verses 14 to 15).”

 Other historical books of the Old Testament identify ventriloquists and their  puppets as perverse idolatrous wizardry.  God’s prophet Isaiah identifies puppet masters as those who peep and mummer: “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? . . .  if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (8: 19-20) .”

 Moody Deliverance Manual’s article titled, ‘Marionettes, Mariolatry, Mummery, Puppetry and Ventriloquism,’ identifies mumming as European adaptions of Roman orgies:  “Mumming seems to have been a survival of the Roman custom of masquerading during the annual orgies of the Saturnalia.”

 The Manual says further “Ventriloquism, which is still a recognized form of conjuring entertainment, is of ancient origin.  Traces of the art are found in Egyptian and Hebrew archaeology. Eurykles of Athens was the most celebrated of Greek ventriloquists, who were called after him Euryklides, and also Engastrimanteis (belly-prophets). It is not impossible that the priests of ancient times were masters of this art, and that to it may be ascribed such miracles as the speaking statues of the Egyptians.”

 Author Aldous Huxley explains:  “ . . . if the ventriloquist desires to create the belief that a voice issues from the bowels of the earth, he imitates, with great accuracy, the tones of such a half- stifled voice, and suggests the existence of someone uttering it by directing his answers and gestures towards the ground . . .”

 Long before Huxley, who had experimented with wizardry, the occult and mind-altering drugs, identified puppetry with speaking from the ground, the Bible warned Christians of diabolic connections of ventriloquist crafts:
 “And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust (Isaiah 29: 4).”  The Apostle John warns Christians that though we may live in the world, we are not to walk as the world (1 John 4: 4).  Take heed!
