VERY IMPORTANT--The other day I was doing some searching on the subject Jade Helm and stumbled onto the Jade Helm in the game called Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. It is a role playing game, in which you choose a’character' to play as.
The other day I was doing some searching on the subject Jade Helm and stumbled onto the Jade Helm in the game called Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. It is a role playing game, in which you choose a "character" to play as. I am including some "cut and paste" verbage, therefore, this email also includes my prayers for protection as you read this evil stuff.
The following is a description from the introduction I copied and pasted from the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls website:
"Diablo III is an action role-playing game that takes place throughout the dark fantasy world of Sanctuary. "
"The demons of the Burning Hells have long desired to invade the realm of men. To this end, a powerful group of demon lords known as the Lesser Evils exiled their brethren, the Prime Evils, from the Hells and sent them to the human world of Sanctuary.
War came with them. The Prime Evils—Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal—began corrupting humans, twisting them into dark servants, and poisoning their minds with false promises of power and wealth. They planned to use these souls in their ongoing battle against the angels of the High Heavens.
Brave heroes banded together and managed to slay the Prime Evils, though the demons’ influence left parts of the world scarred and broken. Thousands of people perished, towns were burned to ash, and an entire nation fell to ruin when the Worldstone was destroyed. This ancient relic once kept Sanctuary safe from the armies of demons and angels, but it has been shattered, and its protection is no more.
Today, few survivors tell tales of the Prime Evils, and many people on Sanctuary are unaware that the Worldstone ever existed. They remain ignorant of the growing danger that the Worldstone’s absence places them in, content to till their fields and sell their wares in relative peace. But those who saw the Prime Evils’ devastation firsthand remember that two of the Lesser Evils yet live in the Burning Hells…Azmodan, the Lord of Sin, and Belial, the Lord of Lies. These great demons have not forgotten the world of Sanctuary—indeed, they see a chance to seize it for themselves.
Now, a star has fallen from the heavens—a grim omen that heralds the End of Days. Sanctuary’s frightened inhabitants are turning to abandoned legends and prophecies for answers. They have no hope against a full onslaught from the Burning Hells. The heroes of the past are gone or dead.
A new champion must rise…"
To play, you choose to play as a character, which include a Barbarian, a Crusader, a Demon Hunter, a Monk, a Witch Doctor or a wizard. From what I could gather, (having never played this evil game) as you enter battles you gain points, experience, and can collect valuable items after each battle. Some of the valuable items include things like weapons, poison, armor, etc.
The Witch Doctor is the character that uses the Jade Helm. Again, from their website:
He weaves the power of the spirits of the Unformed Land, summoning creatures from beyond the grave. He summons frightful undead, vermin, and other creatures for protection and offense, uses destructive poison, acid, and fire attacks, powers spells and summons with Mana, a slow-accruing but deep well of energy.
Though witch doctors make use of a variety of weaponry, they boast several one-of-a-kind pieces of equipment. Mojos are fragile talismans held in the off-hand; instead of being used directly as weapons, they aid witch doctors in warding off the wrong dark forces…and calling out to the right ones. Witch doctors have also been known to carry enchanted ceremonial daggers.Unlike common knives, these blades are honed towards one purpose – human sacrifice – and so they are well-suited to ending lives. (bold emphasis mine)
When you reach level 70, you collect the armor items needed to be the Jade Harvester. These are jade armor items, and the last "coveted" item to collect is the Jade helm (the helmet), which gives wisdom. The Jade Helm is actually called "Jade Harvester's Wisdom."
Here is the description of the Jade Harvester, from the website:
"Every umbaru knows of Tukam, the Jade Harvester. The witch doctor became famous for adorning himself in armor he carved himself from green jade, which he believed heightened his sagacity (wisdom) and his connection with the spirits."
Once you have managed to get the Jade Helm, apparently, you also get the helm for the Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent, and from what I gather, from reading the forums, most players go from there to playing with the Quetzalcoatl, so it would seem to me that the Jade Helm is more of a stepping stone to the "Quetz" which seems to be considered by players to be the bigger/better prize.
I really have no idea where the name for the military exercise came from, but I thought this was interesting enough to pass along. Whether or not any of this has spiritual significance (I happen to believe it does) is up to you for discernment, but one interesting fact is that the original Diablo: Hellfire game was released in 1997, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction released in 2001, and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls was announced in 2008, but not released until May 15, 2012.
There is, of course, much much more to this evil game, but I need to pray about it more before deciding whether to explore what comes after the Jade Helm and Quetzalcoatl.
May God Bless you and keep you in His Divine protection,
