MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
I don’t know if anyone remembers a show that I did some three or four years ago where I was reading one of my Occult Chronological Histories of Alchemy to Wicca, Satanism and Witchcraft. It seems to be evident that from the 14th century on there was a deadly movement of defying the divinity of Jesus Christ. This idea was not passed down because of some tradition – it all sprang readymade from the horrors of the time.
It appears in times of plague and disease we find ourselves in moments where people lose all hope and in the process expose themselves the lower powers in that very process they also open themselves to more suffering and disease.
It is that vicious circle that over time places us in that moment of vulnerability.
It was written in one those old grimoires that one wise sage had said that when the demon or the devil knocks thrice on the door where you live, you must address the creature of the abyss and identify it and kindly send it on its way, because he will bargain and coerce you into giving up blood and soul.
After repeating the sages’ advice, I recalled that one night after a show, I arrived at my house and in my usual way, prepared for bed, went downstairs turned on the television and did some binge watching of some of my favorite TV shows.
The wind was blowing outside and there was a mist rain that was falling which made it a blanket night. I retired to my room at about 2:00 a.m. As I drifted off to sleep, I heard three knocks at the door downstairs. I was startled and thought I was hearing things. Then it happened again – three distinct knocks.
I didn’t want to wake my wife or startle anyone so I threw on a robe and moved slowly down the stairs toward the door. I grabbed the knob, unlocked the door and slowly opened it.
No one was there.
I even stepped out into the cold in bare feet to survey the front yard and it was quiet albeit the wind blowing through the leaves on the trees.
I closed the door, and breathing a sigh of relief I got into bed and slept.
Many of my friends know that I have said that when there is a knock at the door it is never good news.
It can be said that perhaps the devil has already knocked on the door and many people have answered to door and have let him in as we see more people ignore their faith because of the gloomy moments of our existence.
Last night during our after show broadcast, I commented on Facebook that there was a political rally where a man was dancing on a burning flag, holding a bloody heart claiming it to be the heart of the President. He was chanting and holding the heart above his mouth, dripping blood down the sides of his mouth. He then ripped the heart apart and then threw it down on the street.
The headline read that the man was doing some sort of satanic ritual – from what I saw, he was pretending to but the intent was evident and it certainly can be said that it is a product of our times.
There are many people on line that have been spreading all sorts of stories on the internet that are akin to the Satanic Panic of the 1980’s – we are hearing about the sacrificing of children and the drinking of blood component that can only be extracted from frightened children.
It is the modern version of Blood Libel and the modern day vampire story that many people wish to believe.
For many years, I talked about the very real vampires in places of power and I was laughed at – now it is taken seriously by some people; too seriously by others and in any case reflects back to the times of 14th and 15th centuries.
There is no telling if there is any reason to believe in such stories but the early fathers of the church would write books on the ways of killing a Vampire, or baptizing a werewolf—which would literally drowning someone by forcing them to drink holy water.
There were also books on how to deal with witches as well.
When I wish to put myself into the Halloween spirit I actually dig in and blow the dust off some of my old grimoires, witch hunters guides and even the Bible.
I know that may surprising because I have been seeing haunted Christians post of Facebook that Halloween dupes people into becoming devil worshippers when in reality there is a separation between both the profane and the reverent.
Christian leaders stepped in to transform pagan holidays like Halloween, and in the seventh century, Pope Boniface IV decreed November 1 All Saints’ Day, or All Hallows’ Day. In some parts of the world, Christians attend services and visit graves.
It is just that some of the darker elements have been embraced in order to make the world seem more progressive. It can be argued that it is not in any way satanic even though both pagan, Wiccan and Satanic rituals can and are performed and this day.
It can be argued that when faced with social pressures the church can bend its rules but to those who are of the straight and narrow mindset God will not be mocked and in this time of apocalyptic dispensation we see the churches becoming openly liberal in some realms and those who see themselves as progressive accept it while those who are pious see it as blasphemy and the work of the devil.
In a documentary that premiered in Rome, Pope Francis called for the passage of civil union laws for same-sex couples, departing from the position of the Vatican’s doctrinal office and the pope’s predecessors on the issue.
The remarks came amid a portion of the documentary that reflected on pastoral care for those who identify as LGBT.
“Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it,” Pope Francis said in the film, of his approach to pastoral care.
Now we can surmise that God loves all of his children but there are those who denounce carnal natures of man from premarital sex to homosexuality saying that they are the work of the demon of lust.
That demon is well known as his name is Asmodeus.
Asmodeus is also known as Asmodai or Ashmedai and is a king of demons mostly known from the deuterocanonical Book of Tobit, in which he is the primary antagonist. He is also mentioned in some Talmudic legends, for instance, in the story of the construction of the Temple of Solomon. He was supposed by some Renaissance Christians to be the King of the Nine Hells. Asmodeus also is referred to as one of the seven princes of Jinnestan. In Binsfeld’s classification of demons, each one of these princes represents one of the seven deadly sins (Pride, Lust, Envy, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Wrath). Asmodeus is the demon of lust and is therefore responsible for twisting people’s sexual desires. It is said in Asmodeus or, The Devil on Two Sticks that people who fall to Asmodeus’ ways will be sentenced to an eternity in the second level of hell.
There are a multitude of Bible critics who insist the King James Bible is in error when it translates the Greek word “daimonion” as “devils”. They tell us this word should be translated as “demons” and not devils, because everyone knows there is only one Devil, that is Satan, and many people have no need to identify his legion. However to those who believe in God and his various host have learned that there are the watchers of the fortresses that have tormented mankind and has been essential in creating an invisible infrastructure which puts us all on the brink of starvation and extinction.
There, the pious among us that tend to believe that identifying the various demons of the world should be avoided and that even saying the name of the demons that plague us are anathema and will certainly invite them in.
However, in hierarchy of angels and in the false hierarchical realms of hell, there are rules that simply are there to protect God’s creation. When the rules are broken there is penance to be paid and you begin to see the true nature of mankind when the devil comes to collect in his hour of judgement.
There is an argument of sorts as to who owns the deed to this world and who the builders and architects of antiquity were getting their knowledge from. Secretive religious sects and secret orders have kept secrets that have until now been revealed to the common man.
Yet, the common man may find himself in denial of what exactly has been built and why it was at one time a paradise and then became a blighted place full of chaos and evil.
There are Gnostic thoughts that proclaim that the matrix that has been constructed for our reality was created by the Demiurge. The term Demiurge derives from the ancient Greek “demiourgos” meaning “artisan” or “craftsman.” In various belief systems this is a deity responsible for the creation of the physical universe.
The precise nature and character of the Demiurge however varies from a benign architect of matter in some, to the personification of evil in others.
Plato refers to the Demiurge frequently in the Timaeus as the entity who “fashioned and shaped” the material world. Plato describes the Demiurge as unreservedly good and hence desirous of a world as good as possible. The world remains allegedly imperfect because the Demiurge had to work on pre-existing chaotic matter. Christianity and Judaism claim “God” the Creator is good, but Christians claim the soul is corrupt due to the sin of Adam. Gnosticism is another matter.
In Gnosticism, the Demiurge (Creator) is by no means all-good, but a bungling and incompetent fool – much like a clown that creates the world as a spiritual prison.
It is like the earth appears to look like a carnival when in reality it is a prison or charnel house. Gnosticism also presents a distinction between the highest, unknowable “alien God” and the “creator” of the material — the Demiurge.
Charles Fort took it one step further by describing the Demiurge as the Cosmic Trickster. Neither good nor evil, but always playing meaningful jokes on mankind as he watches us suffer and learn from his lessons.
Phillip K. Dick, the science fiction writer who received posthumous praise for many of his short stories and books spoke of the so-called “matrix” as a “black iron prison.”
The “black iron prison” is a concept of an all-pervasive system of social control postulated in the Tractates Cryptica Scriptura, a summary of an unpublished Gnostic exegesis included in his novel VALIS.
In an early Christian Gnostic book entitled, The Testimony of Truth, Jesus advises a disciple to become “a disciple of his own higher mind,” and continues to say that one’s higher mind is “the father of Truth.” Elsewhere, the Gnostic sage, Silvanus encourages his disciples in this way: “Knock on yourself as upon a door and walk upon yourself as on a straight road. For, if you walk on the road, it is impossible for you to go astray. Open the door for yourself so that you may know what is.”
But what is the self?
The ancient sages taught that every human being has a mortal lower self, called the eidolon and an immortal higher self (soul) called the “daemon.” The eidolon is the embodied self, the physical body, and ego personality. The daemon is the spirit, the true self, which is each person’s spiritual connection to God. The mysteries were designed to help initiates realize that one’s eidolon is a false self and that one’s true identity is the immortal daemon.
It seems that the daemon you know is your own lower self and you must know how to bring yourself to a higher level so that you can become a builder of that bridge to Heaven.
In this sense, demons and daemons, basically do not coexist in the same context however to the uninitiated – the twinning of the two seem interchangeable but it is said that a daemon is a good and benevolent guardian and the demon is a ruthless watcher that undermines the good nature of man.
The temple of Jerusalem was built with the help of Solomon’s demons. Many ancient traditions assert that Solomon was heavily involved with the demonic realm, and that the integrity of Jerusalem was compromised as a result.
In the Qur’an, Mohammed indicated that there was black magic associated with Solomon’s time, although he attempted to exonerate Solomon himself, because he mistook Solomon for a prophet.
The Goetia or The Art of Solomon gives instructions of how to evoke 72 demons which were captured by King Solomon, King of Israel, and according to legend were captivated and sealed in a bronze barrel and then thrown into the depths of the waters. When Babylonians found the barrel, they thought it contains big treasure, so they forcefully opened the barrel and released the demons out along with their legions. They all have returned to the places they’ve been before, with the exception of Belial who remained with the people.
With much of what we have heard from Solomon into the 15th and 19th centuries the Devil is the architect. He is the dark father who had a hand in building the chaotic world after God made it a paradise.
The Earth and the matrix in which we live is very much a product of chaos and has been formed as a perfect living space for man. However through the work of the chaotic Master earth has become the home to the fallen angels and they now watch the earth and shake the earth through acts of catastrophe.
Humankind has gone from time of Genesis or the time of the genetic Isis (The era of water), to the time of genetic gnosis, the time of the fire of knowledge, illumination (the Apocalypse.) and palingenesis, a term used to describe the transmigration of consciousness or soul from one body to another. In mythology, palingenesis is often associated with the Return of the Phoenix.
The great Firebird that rises from the ashes of the fires of Armageddon.
This is all witnessed by the eye of the great god of chaos. The all-seeing eye now has new meaning for those who do not know the line of thinking handed down from the Illuminati.
The great secret of the ages according to the illuminated is that Lucifer is the god of this world.
The elite are now in the process of hastening the arrival of Armageddon. They are calling upon many of the darker powers and are finding demons that have incarnated into the bodies of the powerful and many who are called the elect are no longer capable of having their calling and election made sure.
Devils and demons have been removed from contemporary life. They have become a topic that is far too uncouth to remain within a sophisticated world and they are banished to the realms of superstition and Hollywood.
Demons still prowl our earth this day. Listen to the language we use to describe criminals, unpopular politicians and other heretics of the world community. We describe them as evil, foul, horrific or cruel. The language we use conjures up the same fear as demons did to those who lived in the middle ages. In the world of mass media there are forces out there presented to us as people to fear and dread. These are the new demons of our society. They are not horned creatures, but they are demons nonetheless.
Hell’s throngs exist today in vilified nations, multinational companies and religious groups that are unlike our own. Fear of great companies, industries, governments and even other faiths has left many of us suffering from a paranoiac idea that there are forces out there intent on destroying us.
But we are told that most these fears are unfounded. Some are but the more you dig, you begin to see a pattern. A pattern of alienation and the complete obsolesce of what can be called humanity.
