MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Last week, I was digging through some old shows in order to provide my producers with what we call Classic Ground Zero shows. There was a show that I selected that dealt with the O.T.O. People know that Ordo Templi Orientis is a “fraternity” of sorts but the history of the group links to many occultists and, of course, the baddy of them all, Aleister Crowley.
As I listened to the old show I noticed how I approached my guests with a sense of new discovery. I knew of the O.T.O in name only and briefly read about the organization.
I was expecting to encounter men in cowls wearing runic jewelry and speaking in various strange words in some Tolkien like way but of course that was silly. I really don’t think that an organization of occultists would draw attention to themselves acting all Goth and strange.
However, it does not erase the fact that while these fraternities have toned down the scariness and the mystery there is still the rich history of the medial occult war between those who practice in the darkness and those who practice in the light.
It can be argued that most nations in the world can be seen as pagan nations, or at least they were organized by pagans and Luciferian families that would hide behind a state religion and practice ritualistic magik in order to seal their fortunes and guarantee their material rule.
In all of the nations of the world, they built temples for public worship and offering. They worshipped their Gods and created their rituals and as the evolved over time – the power of the mind and the possession of one’ soul to that God was needed in order to fulfill some spiritual need.
In every community also were philosophers and mystics, deeply versed in alchemical practices and priestcrafts.
These individuals were usually banded together, forming secret philosophical schools where they could teach ritual and magic away from the all-seeing eyes of the churches.
Many of the great minds of antiquity were initiated into these secret fraternities by strange and mysterious rites, some of which were extremely cruel.
The secret teachings were provided by the druids, they are divine holy men, or the medicine men or even the sorcerers who also officiated in human sacrifice –the officiators would drown the sacrifice, some would hang the candidates while others would wound candidates and drain their blood.
One of the more hardcore beliefs of the druids was the threefold death. In one version of the threefold death, an individual has three simultaneous causes of death; for example, wounding, hanging, and drowning. These causes of death were usually a punishment predicted in advance, and naturally, there’s only a few recorded instances of them, given how unlikely a triple death happens in life.
Both the cross and the serpent were sacred to the Druids, who made the former by cutting off all the branches of an oak tree and fastening one of them to the main trunk in the form of the letter T. This oaken cross became symbolic of their superior Deity.
The Deity was formed for the sun moon and stars—a combination of Jehovah, Baal and Osirus or Jahbulon. There were many unknown Gods that were worshiped and even darker entities that were conjured to declare war on those who worshiped in early Christian enclaves.
I have noticed that recent horror films have somehow dug up the names of these demonic entities –which I am sure they find more effective at scaring their audience because it appears that characters like Lucifer and Satan have now been reduced to a cartoon.
This does not mean they are not real or that their power in not felt, it is just that as far back as the first commercial success of the film, The Exorcist – it was the demon Pazuzu that possessed the little girl in the film.
It was a demon that many people were dumbfounded over which added to the terror of a demonic being that is not familiar to the average Christian and whether or not a Mesopotamian demon of winds and pestilence would be excised from a person by prayer alone.
I felt this fear when I watched the horror film “Hereditary” where there was a cult that was featured that worshiped King Paimon. He is lesser known to Christians, but well-known to occultists. He’s only one of 72 demons spoken of by King Solomon. The fact that most regular churchgoers only really know about one Devil, the possibilities for many others are frightening beyond computation.
This is one of the chief reasons why Hereditary is terrifying – it deals in the horrifying subject of familial satanic abuse and the idea of a cult that pays homage to an unknown demon.
After watching the film I has to sit down and reread the books about the Goetic demons that were spoken of in the times of Solomon and beyond.
King Paimon is one of Lucifer’s most obedient devotees, rules 200 legions of angels, is connected to the tree of death and first appeared in an anonymously written grimoire from the mid-1600s called Lesser Key of Solomon.
The true origin of King Paimon, the demonic force in Hereditary, predates much of Christianity and is one of those demons I talk about that does not flee when Jesus’ name is uttered.
Paimon is actually a Djinn.
Djinn should not be confused with what are called Dybbuk.
A Dybbuk, is spoken of in Jewish Mysticism, It is a disembodied human spirit that, because of former sins, wanders restlessly until it finds a haven in the body of a living person.
In the movie, The Possession a girl is possessed by a Dybbuk. The entity is named and identified as Abyzou.
Abyzou is the name of a female demon. Abyzou was blamed for miscarriages and infant mortality and was said to be motivated by envy.
I had an experience with this demon however it did not call itself Abyzou it called itself Obyzouth. This demon appeared during a séance that I officiated at and attacked the women that were in the room—it was actually seeking out a woman who attended the séance who was unaware that she was pregnant and had been drinking that night.
It was a very powerful and terrifying spirit that followed a woman that haunted an old bar called “The Rose and The Raindrop.” After we attempted to rid the bar of this demon and ghost the bar was forced to close – we found that the place used to be a funeral Parlor and later a theater.
The difficulty in ridding this demon from the building had us scrambling for all sorts of people with more spiritual energy to exorcise the place. We called upon a Native American shaman, a witch and a priest and still we do not know if the building is still haunted.
We eventually were told that there was a furnace or crematory in the basement that was said to be a portal or bridge to what the Greeks called Erebus.
Erebus is vague general term as it is simply a word describing a demon or deity that is nothing but the shapeless darkness.
According to Wikipedia, Erebus has often been conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; The perceived meaning of Erebus is “darkness”; the first recorded instance of it was “place of darkness between earth and Hades.”
According to the Greek oral poet Hesiod’s Theogony, Erebus is the offspring of Chaos, and brother to Nyx:
From Chaos came forth Erebus and black Night (Nyx); but of Night were born Aether and Day (Hemera), whom she conceived and bore from union in love with Erebus.
Erebus was also the inspiration for a character in the H.P Lovecraft mythos named Nyarlathotep. In the short story The Dreams in the Witch-House he is described in such a way that I am sure many of us have seen this strange being in our nightmares – or we have felt its presence:
“According to the story Nyarlathotep is a tall, lean man of dead black coloration wholly devoid of either hair or beard, and wearing as his only garment a shapeless robe of some heavy black fabric. His feet were indistinguishable because of the table and bench, but he must have been shod, since there was a clicking sound he made whenever he changed position. The man did not speak, and bore no trace of expression on his small, regular features. He merely pointed to a book of prodigious size which lay open on the table.”
There are those who lead the various churches who say that this shapeless darkness is what is forcing us into a sense of emptiness. That this emptiness has become the core of our culture –it has surrendered to Erebus.
The darkness is rising and it is evident when you read in the headlines that in France people who were worshipping in a Church were killed in a satanic and ritualistic way.
The chilling attack saw three people killed in a bloody rampage as the suspected terrorist stormed the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice.
One woman had her throat slit and was found partially beheaded with a foot-long blade near church’s holy water font.
France’s state prosecutor said tonight that the killer used the 12-inch knife to slaughter three church-goers and is in hospital with serious injuries after being shot 14 times by cops.
The church is no longer a place of protection from those who are possessed by the creeping darkness.
Church authorities all over the world are saying that our culture has fled from God, from meaning, from purpose, and embraced a soft kind of nihilism; a nihilism that will not call itself nihilism.
It uses other words and slogans to describe itself. “You only live once,” it says. “Live your truth.” People are told that there is only one life, one reality, and it has no meaning aside from what you assign to it.
But what happens when you no longer see meaning? Well, our culture says, if you do not see it then it is not there.
Many are in a agreement that it is time to reject faith for science and that it is time for a reset— some see the reset as an attempt to establish a world order that is being prepared to be led by the antichrist; in fact, this movement is so powerful that it has been featured on the cover of Time Magazine.
Over 50 years ago, Time Magazine had a different cover – one that asked a question that we should be asking now.
In 1966, emblazoned in bold red letters on a black Time Magazine cover were the words “Is God Dead?” It was a title of an article that sparked criticism in the clergy as it investigated a trend among theologians to write God out of the field of theology. It outlined how increasingly difficult it became for theologians to make God relevant in an increasingly secular society.
The title of the cover was based on what Friedrich Nietzsche had written previously about the madman running through the market place yelling in German “GOD IS DEAD” believing that mankind had lost its way.
The madman also believed that there was a satanic cloud over mankind and that they had rejected their morals.
However Nietzsche’s complete statement is, “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”
There is an old quote that I often say was made by Joseph Campbell and that it the way to kill a God is to ignore him.
Ask yourself if you are willing to continue hearing from politicians that they trust science over faith and that they do not strike a balance between them.
How are we to understand the Pope and how he declares that you no longer have to believe in God in order to get into the Kingdom of heaven?
Well it depends on who is speaking about this. Although Pope Francis did make statements in 2013 that were widely received as atypically inclusive of nonbelievers, many apologists say that he did not completely discount the necessity for a belief in God.
Back in 2013, he reminded the faithful that even those who do not believe in God can ascend to heaven if they lead good and honorable lives. Later in the year, Francis would give an exclusive interview to an atheist Italian journalist, in which he called efforts to convert people to Christianity “solemn nonsense.” In an earlier homily in May, Francis would famously say: “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ, all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
His indifference to globalism and his declarative statements against capitalism also have people in a quandary. Some are saying that he espoused communism and the global order.
Francis thrust the Church front and center into the climate change debate, effectively calling pollution a sin and citing a moral obligation for a binding international agreement to combat global warming.
Many say that the Pope has surrendered faith to science and technocracy.
So has our government – the entire political process eschews God.
Who can deny that their basic doctrines of “scientific humanism” or “atheistic humanism” currently dominate public education in America? This, more than any other factor, has relentlessly changed our “Christian consensus” into a “secular consensus,” producing the moral meltdown that is rapidly destroying our people and our nation’s freedoms, integrity, happiness, and even safety.
I don’t want you to think that I am some pious zealot. I am not demanding that prayer be put in the public school, or that we need to have a biblical world view or that our government should recognize religion—it is just that all of this focus on the science and not the faith I believe opens us up for Erebus – the creeping darkness.
We are all participating in a ritual that destroys our dignity and humanity.
The lockdowns, the masks, the “social distancing,” and other so-called “emergency measures,” the Orwellian propaganda, the censorship of dissent, the corporate media finally transforming into a full-blown Goebbels like mouthpiece for the globalists, the goon squads raiding people’s homes, the cult-like, totalitarian conformity … it’s just a taste of what’s to come.
This was always in the cards, of course. It was just a matter of time until we got here. But we went willingly — the devil never forces his way in — you have to be a participant and then once possessed, it will take a great deal of work to exorcise what damage has been done.
