False Signs and Wonders PT2
All the world’s a stage, right? For who? Satan!
Spiritualism and magic-tricks became synonymous and quickly people became enamored with the idea of magicians.
Vintage posters of magicians reveal that these men knew exactly who they were dealing with when they were performing.
Rene Walter has amassed an amazing collection of vintage magic posters:
Robert Heller was one magician who was blatant in his use of demonic imagery within his posters, and he even sent some of the flyers to churches!
After the Golden Age of Magic, the use of demonic figures diminished though as you will see, not entirely…even today.

Notice the deceptive practices?
Spiritual Movement-Golden Age of Magic-16th Century?
The Renaissance was a particular period of time of diverse activity with intense conflicts. But, the term “Golden Age” was a suggestion by H.P. Blavatsky of a “heaven on earth” for the 21st century as compared to the 19th century. This esoteric movement was said to begin when the “Age of Aquarius” was upon us.
HPB wrote of root races which would eventually become their own gods! Essentially growing out of its bonds of matter and flesh…which would allow their consciousness/subconsciousness to merge with the Masters of Wisdom….aka the “Golden Age”.
Some referred to her as one of the greatest thinkers of her time! Her all-embracing philosophy/theology combined with modern occult initiates makes for a ‘new Atlantis/Meropis‘ where its inhabitants would be capable of superhuman feats.
Transhumanism is Blavatsky language of the elite. The lineage of the Merovingian’s are said to be the descendants of of the inhabitants of Atlantis, and they currently claim the bloodline of Christ. This may very well be true! But this Christ which they refer to is one of the Masters of Wisdom. NOT the Jesus Christ of The Bible!!
Manly P. Hall talks about magicians proving the spiritual world exists. He acknowledged that many a magician had lost his life as the result of opening a way whereby submundane creatures could become active participants in his affairs.
Ceremonial magic utilizes invocations and magic formulas to control demons!
Don’t think for one second that this kind medieval magician died out…oh no! Indeed these wizards are securely implanted in this world today. In fact (black/white-both the same) magic has made an exponential comeback! These witches and warlocks use meditative states to connect to the hierarchy which The Bible refers to as “Powers, principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
As Above-So Below
Baphomet’s hands form the “sign of Hermetism” – which is a visual representation of the Hermetic axiom “As Above, So Below”. This dictum sums up the whole of the teachings and the aims of Hermetism, where the microcosm (man) is as the macrocosm (the universe). Therefore, understanding one equals understanding the other.
This Law of Correspondence originates from the Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus where it was stated:
“That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”. [English translation of the Emerald Tablet]
The mastery of this life force, the Astral Life, is what is called by modern occultists “magick”.
“The practice of magic – either white or black – depends upon the ability of the adept to control the universal life force – that which Eliphas Levi calls the great magical agent or the astral light. By the manipulation of this fluidic essence the phenomena of transcendentalism are produced. The famous hermaphroditic Goat of Mendes was a composite creature formulated to symbolize this astral light. It is identical with Baphomet the mystic pantheos of those disciples of ceremonial magic, the Templars, who probably obtained it from the Arabians.” [Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages]
