Wouldn’t it make perfect sense? GOD gives eternal life through the Salvation offered by HIS Son, Jesus Christ…and Satan would offer the same but in a twisted way? Of curse…it does.
Okay…a little play on words, but effective just the same.
The Holy Spirit revealed this to me, so I have no doubt that the rumors and legends that originated with this entity are true. This entity has been connected to many people, places and events through the decades, centuries and millennia. Do I exaggerate? NO!
Some will be convinced that this is nothing but conjecture and trifle gibberish, but I assure you that this beast is very real and exists to feed upon man’s body and soul.
Did I bring this to you just in time Halloween, yes it does seem as though I have but this is not a laughing matter. You see, so many people celebrate Halloween when all it is, is just Satan in disguise.
From St. Germain to Judas….Vampires stretch back as far as the 1700’s in France? No, further!
This first article which I highlight is the most recent but one of the most relevant as far as it being a timely matter. Conceived to drum up business and hype, but it’s all the more real and based upon true events.
FORTUNE TELLING VAMP
In Louisiana, in New Orleans to be exact, there exists a French Quarter Boutique du Vampyre. The tale involves one who claims who claims to be akin to the real deal! His name? Jacques d’Saint Germaine…the name being very close, you see to the one he aspired to be. In fact, some even claimed that he was the presence of Saint Germain, himself.
Nonetheless, welcoming the “resident fortune teller” safely behind glass in a fortune cabinet. It’s backed by the same company that makes the popular Zoltar fortune-telling machines.
“I’ve been dreaming of acquiring one of these machines for my customers to have fun with while visiting our boutique”, says Marita Crandle, owner of Boutique du Vampyre. “However, I really wanted to create my own character and he had to be a vampire.”
I asked Olaf, at Characters Unlimited, if I could make him St. Germaine. I was thrilled when he told me I could design him, dress him, and even write his vocabulary. It was too good to be true. I think St. Germaine is going to quickly become one of the focal points of our store”.
Jacque St. Germaine, was reported to have lived in the French Quarter, on the corner of Royal and Ursulines Streets in the early 1900s. He apparently admitted to being related to Count St. Germaine, a 18th Century alchemist, while many people believe he was actually Count St. Germaine himself – a man that throughout history, never seemed to age beyond 40 years.
One evening he reportedly enticed a young woman to his home. However, she jumped off of his balcony after he apparently bit her on the neck. The police were called and he was ordered to report to the police station the next day. However, St. Germaine never made it to the police station the next day, rather, he disappeared. The authorities discovered several bottles in his home, half filled with wine, and half with human blood.
“St. Germaine, seemed to be the perfect vampire for the job”, said Crandle. She explains that every so often on the back of the fortune cards, there will be a coupon for something from the boutique, like a deck of tarot cards, or a fortune candle, making the 5 dollar St. Germaine fortune more than worth the investment.
Crandle says she can also turn off the pre-recorded messages, and talk through St. Germaine, to really have fun with her customers. “There’s something so magical about these carnival style machines”, says Crandle. “When customers wander into our boutique, we hope that they temporarily leave reality, and are transported by our little curiosity shop, to a magical and mysterious place, where they can explore the mystical part of life. From vampire shrunken heads to fortune candles to bottled spirits, we try to offer something for everyone. We feel that St. Germaine will be a wonderful addition to the feel of the shop, while giving customers a fun experience during their visits.
Boutique du Vampyre is located at 709 ½ St. Ann street, at Royal Street. Come by, have a little popcorn, and try your luck at winning a prize while St. Germaine tells your fortune.
Little does she know, she’s inviting the devil himself!
The year is 1902 and a man going by Jaques St. Germain moves into the prestigious building at the corner of Ursulines and Royal. It is said that he has immigrated from the south of France and a descendant of the Count Saint-Germain. His first introduction into New Orleans society was a party he threw, where he invited all the elite of New Orleans, dignitaries and politicians. Fed them from a catered menu on the finest china and silverware, yet didn’t himself eat a bite. All he did was drink what guests believed to be red wine. This supposedly offended New Orleans polite society and Jacques, while immensely rich never seemed to fit in. He was described as charming, highly intelligent and a master of languages and art, but the company he kept and the fact that he was known to party a lot (loved Bourbon Street) kept him from being accepted by the elitists.
Jacques Saint Germaine didn’t come back into attention until the police took notice of him. Jacques had picked up a woman in a local pub and taken her back to his home. The young woman later finds herself at the police station with a tale that sounds right out of a fantasy novel. She said that Saint-Germain came at her with alarming speed and strength when she leaned over to inspect some beautiful items on his mantel. With that speed and strength in full use, he pressed her against the mantel and began biting her viciously on her neck.
As luck would have it, at that exact moment a few of Jacques more rowdy friends began banging at his door to lure him out for a drink. The pounding distracted Jacques enough for the woman to break away, but instead of trying to make it past Jacques she decides to throw herself through the second story window and over the balcony that surrounds the property, to the bricked street below, thus resulting in her legs breaking in a few places. Her desperate screams drew the police and they took her to the hospital and took her statement.
Jacques, when questioned that night, stated only that she was drunk and decided to jump. Police ask if Jacques could come down to the station in the morning to give a formal statement.
Jacques never appears at the police station the next day. When they decide to pay him a visit they find his house is abandoned and most of his things gone. Police take this as invitation to inspect his home and are confused by what they find. For one there are blood stains all over table clothes in the house and from what they can tell they are from different time periods. Then to top it off there was absolutely not one piece of food in the house. Not even utensils or plates, just a large collection of wine glasses and wine bottles filled with what police believed to be red wine, yet upon taste discovered it was a mixture of blood and wine.
Comte de Saint-Germain & Richard Chanfray, the man who claimed to be the Count in the 1970s. Chanfray appeared on television with his claim and supposedly changed lead into gold. Chanfray committed suicide in Saint Tropez in 1983. Picture is taken from Before It’s News and they report that Chanfray faked his suicide and is still alive to this day. (Which would be true if he really is the Count.
There have been numerous reports, even in present day, that a mysterious figure, sometimes known as “Jack” will often harass tourists and locals, displaying amazing speed or strength.
Today New Orleans is known as one of the most violent cities in the U.S., leading the country in “murders per capita”. But, it doesn’t stop there, we are also known for our mysterious disappearances, which are not based in the “low-income” districts of NOLA, but usually focus on tourists and even visiting celebrities. These crimes give the city a dangerous and almost gothic flare and perpetuate the rumors that it might not be drug-dealers that are pushing our crime-stats through the roof, but maybe a few vampires, one in particular that goes by Jack.
Next, we visit a guide…
Vampire’s Guide to New Orleans
If you have ever walked the dark, rainy streets of the French Quarter at night, you have seen the voodoo shops selling their gris-gris and John-the-Conqueror Root. You’ve seen the old woman in the French Market whose pointing finger foretells your death And if you know the right person to ask and you ask in the right way, you’ll be shown to the vampire clubs.
I’ve been in those clubs and seen people who believe with their heart, body, and soul that they are real, live vampires. And some of the people in those clubs are scared to death of a select group of vampires who have only appeared there a few times, and always in the darkest of night
By day, of course, the vampire clubs are closed and locked or turned back into regular tourist bars . . .
SITTING UP WITH THE DEAD
Like the Spanish Moss that drapes the trees of the nearby bayous, mystery and the occult have shrouded New Orleans since its birth. For hundreds of years, families there have practiced a custom called “sitting up with the dead.” When a family member dies, a relative or close family friend stays with the body until it is placed into one of New Orleans’ above-ground tombs or is buried. The body is never left unattended.
There are many reasons given for this practice today—the Old Families will tell you it’s simply respect for the dead—but this tradition actually dates back to the vampire folklore of medieval Eastern Europe. First, the mirrors are covered and the clocks are stopped. While sitting up with the deceased, the friend or family member is really watching for signs of paranormal activity, e.g.,. if a cat is seen to jump over, walk across, or stand on top of the coffin; if a dog barks or growls at the coffin; or if a horse shies from it, these are all signs of impending vampirism. Likewise, if a shadow falls over the corpse. At that point, steps are taken to prevent the corpse from returning from the dead.
Ways to stop a corpse—especially a suicide—from becoming a vampire include burying it face down at a crossroads. Often family members place a sickle around the neck to keep the corpse from sitting up; stuff the mouth with garlic and sew it closed; or mutilate the body, usually by decapitating the head and placing it at the bottom of the feet. But the most common remedy for impending vampirism is to drive a stake into the corpse, decapitate it, then burn the body to ashes. This method is still believed to be the only sure way to truly destroy the undead.
THE CASKET GIRLS
Ask any member of the Old Families who the first vampires to come to New Orleans were, and they’ll tell you the same: it was the Casket Girls.
Much of the population that found their way to New Orleans in the early 1700s were unwelcome anywhere else: deported galley slaves and felons, trappers, gold-hunters and petty criminals. People who wouldn’t be noticed if they went missing.
Sources vary on the specifics, but the basic story is that the city’s founders asked French officials to send over prospective wives for the colonists. They obliged and after months at sea these young girls showed up on the docks, pale and gaunt, bearing only as many belongings as would fit inside a wooden chest or “casquette,” which appears to have been the 18th Century equivalent of an overnight bag. They were taken to the Ursuline Convent, which still stands today, where the girls were said to have resided until the nuns could arrange for marriages.
Some accounts say they were fine young women, virgins brought up in church-run orphanages; some say they were prostitutes. But there are many who swear they were vampires, vampires who continue to rise from their “casquettes” on the third floor to break through the windows and hurricane shutters—windows and shutters that always seem to need repairing after the calmest of nights—to feed upon the transient crowds that for centuries have filled the darkened alleys of the Quarter.
Finally in 1978, after centuries of rumors and stories, two amateur reporters demanded to see these coffins. The archbishop, of course, denied them entrance. Undaunted, the next night the two men climbed over the convent wall with their recording equipment and set up their workstation below. The next morning, the reporters’ equipment was found strewn about the lawn. And on the front porch steps of the convent were found the almost decapitated bodies of these two men. Eighty percent of their blood was gone. To this day, no one has ever solved the murders.
Le Compte de St. Germain and the Balcony at Ursuline and Royal
If there is one person who encapsulates the lure and the danger of the vampire, it is the Compte de Saint Germain. Making his first appearance in the court of Louis XV of France, the Comte de Saint Germain endeared himself to the aristocrats by regaling them with events from his past. An alchemist by trade, he claimed to be in possession of the “elixir of life,” and to be more than 6,000 years old.
At other times the Count at claimed to be a son of Francis II Rakoczi, the Prince of Transylvania, born in 1712, possibly legitimate, possibly by Duchess Violante Beatrice of Bavaria. This would account for his wealth and fine education. It also explains why kings would accept him as one of their own.
Contemporary accounts from the time record that despite being in the midst of many banquets and invited to the finest homes, he never ate at any of them. He would, however, sip at a glass of red wine. After a few years, he left the French court and moved to Germany, where he was reported to have died. However, people continued to spot him throughout Europe even after his death.
In 1903, a handsome and charismatic young Frenchman named Jacques Saint Germain, claiming to be a descendant of the Compte, arrived in New Orleans, taking residence in a house at the corner of Royal and Ursuline streets. Possessing an eye for beauty, Jacques was seen on the streets of the French Quarter with a different young woman on his arm every evening. His excursions came to an abrupt end one cold December night, when a woman’s piercing scream was heard coming from Jacques’ French Quarter home. The scream was quickly followed by a woman who flung herself from the second story window to land on the street below. As bystanders rushed to her aid, she told them how Saint Germain attacked and bit her, and that she jumped out of the window to escape. She died later that evening at Charity Hospital in New Orleans.
By the time the New Orleans police kicked in the door of Saint Germain’s home, he had escaped. However, what they did find was disturbing enough. The stench of death greeted the nostrils of the policemen, who found not only large bloodstains in the wooden flooring, but even wine bottles filled with human blood. The house was declared a crime scene and sealed off. From that evil night to the present day, no one has lived in that home in the French Quarter. It is private property and all taxes have been paid to date, but no one has been able to contact the present owner or owners. The only barriers between the valuable French Quarter property and the outside world are the boarded-up balcony windows and a small lock on the door. Whispers of Jacques sightings are prevalent, and people still report seeing him in the French Quarter. Could it be the enigmatic Compte checking up on his property?
Legend says that vampires originated with the apostle who betrayed Jesus Christ and that is Judas Iscariot. We all know the Bible story that Judas betrayed Christ for 30 pieces of silver and when Christ was crucified Judas tried to return the 30 pieces of silver and when the priests would not take it back he cast the silver coins away from him and when and hung himself. You can find reference to this in Matthew 27 3-5. Some legends down through the years say that those that commit suicide can become vampires.
Judas Iscariot according to a Hebrew Legend was the first vampire ever in history. Though ancient writings from around the world mention vampire like creatures being around several thousand years before Christ.
It is said by some that vampires have two separate beginnings. One from Judas and one from a creature from very ancient times. Egyptians told of a creature much like a vampire that was said to have existed six thousand or more years ago.
It is suggested by some that vampires having an aversion to crosses, holy water, and silver can be traced back to the Judas legend. What we don’t know is if its true.
The specific quote from the bible is.
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. (Matthew 27:3-5)
What we all want to know is if Judas died when he hanged himself or was he condemned to haunt the earth for the rest of history as a vampire. If so is Judas the father of all vampires? Doesn’t it strike you as odd that it’s SILVER? For whatever scientific or chemical reason, silver has a unique effect upon vampires when it comes in contact with their skin. Not only does it burn, but it also has a paralyzing effect, making it so a vampire cannot pull the silver off of itself. It’s somewhat similar to the way humans become paralyzed by electrical currents – the muscles seize and the person becomes unable to disconnect themselves from the source. While in both cases this is not necessarily deadly in small amounts, there is the possibility of major injury with enough exposure.
The Book Of Alugah, The Story Of God’s Punishment For Judas Iscariot
In a very old book that I purchased in Jerusalem the story of God’s punishment for Judas Iscariot is revealed. I believe the book to be authentic. It is leather bound and was written by a Catholic Monk in the year 843 AD. I purchased it in an old book store on a dusty alley in Jerusalem and it took me several years before I was able to read it. You see it was written in Aramaic which is said to have been the language of Jesus Christ. I was able to get a professor in New York to translate it for me in exchange for him being able to keep a copy of the book.
The Story Of How God Cursed Judas Iscariot
The Monk named Aed tells the Hebrew legend in the book that God punished Judas Iscariot after Judas hanged himself by restoring life to him and that God cursed him to live until the last days. God is said to have told Judas that he would fear the sun and the light of day and that he would roam the night. He went on to tell Judas that the life is in the blood and that blood from living humans would be the only thing Judas would ever feed on again. The book does not say anything about it having to be the blood of Christians.
The book does say that God told Judas that you will never find the comfort of death. Nothing will kill you or your kind but you will seek the darkness and live in dark moist places. Wishing that you could taste water again but it will never cross your lips. You will walk through the many years in front of you remembering what you have done and what has been done to you in return. And you will know that your end will be in a burning lake of fire that will never go out.
God told Judas that he knew Judas would have many off spring and that they too would be cursed the same as Judas to be creatures of the night and to feed only only blood. God is said to have told Judas that wine or sweet water will never cross your lips again. God went on to tell Judas that in the end at the end of days that Judas and all his offspring would be cast into a burning lake of fire along with Lucifer and his demons where you will remain forever.
The book does not tell how the off spring of Judas would be created or where they would come from. But it does say that Judas would have many offspring and they would be cursed the same as Judas.
God told Judas that anything to do with Christ or Christians would be an aversion to Judas and his kind including silver. God is said to have told Judas that you betrayed my son for silver and that silver will betray you. The book does not explain what this means exactly. And it does not say anything of why God created a vampire race. The word vampire does not appear in the book but several references to Creatures of the Night are made.
It does make me wonder why God would have created a race of beings to feed on the blood of humans. And that is basically the whole story from the book. It does not reveal any deep dark vampire secrets. The story is written by hand in ink and some of the story could not be read because it had been damaged by water. The rest of the book is interesting history of that time in Jerusalem but it says nothing else about vampires. It is likely that the Monk Aed heard the story from other people and that he wrote down what he heard. That is how things were done in that time. So we know that the legend did exist at one time. We don’t know if that was all of the story or if there is more of the story that was not told or written down by the Monk.

Judas Iscariot Father Of All Vampires
There is a not well known legend from the Jewish people that Judas was condemned by God to wander the earth and was never allowed to see the sun. The legend says that Judas is a vampire and that he and his descendants are condemned to wander the earth and feed on the blood of Christians. I was told that every vampire was created by Judas or his vampire descendants. I was told about this legend when I was in Jerusalem in the 1980s. I was able to purchase a very old hand written book in a Jerusalem book store that had some of the legend in it.
It was a very old Jewish man who told me where to find the book I purchased and I was not allowed to record or photograph him. I wish I had been able to record the story. The man told me that very ancient vampires lived under the old city of Jerusalem. He said that he had seen these ancient creatures and they always drank the blood of Christians. The book only says that Judas and his offspring would have to feed on the blood of humans. It does not say Christians.
He told the story that for thousands of years these creatures had lived in caverns or tunnels under the city and that they preyed on the blood of the faithful of Christ.
So…is this Judas, yet another presentation of St. Germain in the flesh? Sure, we have many books which have attributed to Saint Germain…the prestidigitator…the magician. How would he accomplish all these feats? I believe he is a fallen angel. He is aligned with the Ascended Masters (fallen angels)…all vampires themselves who feed off of humanity to obtain their body and souls.
A dire warning needs to go out! Spread the word about this wicked thing. Tell your friends and family…everyone.
Called by many names, but the Ouija Board is evil. Some will try to convince you that it’s just a “toy” but nothing could be further from the truth.
This whole mess began with the fallen angels! I know that sounds a bit far-fetched but you will see the connections…
We must establish some rather interesting facts before we can “circle the square”!
Originally, it began just as a “FUJI” (fu chi), which few realize was a tool to communicate with spirits. It roughly resembled a dowsing-rod.
The page which reveals this information details it as a series on TAOISM. CHI is 22 letter of the Greek alphabet, transliterated in the traditional Latin style as ‘chi’ (as in Christ) or in the modern style as ‘kh’ (as in Khaniá and in the etymologies of this dictionary).
- Astronomythe twenty-second star in a constellation.noun: Chi“Chi Ophiuchi”
- Chinese fuji spirit-writing involves some specialized vocabulary. Luan 鸞 “a mythical phoenix-like bird” is used in synonyms such as fuluan 扶鸞 “support the phoenix,” feiluan 飛鸞 “flying phoenix,” and jiangluan 降鸞 “descending phoenix”. The fuji process involves specialized participants. The two people (or rarely one) who hold the sieve or stylus are called jishou 乩手 “planchette hands”, only one of whom is ostensibly possessed by a shen 神 “spirit; god” or xian 仙 “immortal; transcendent”.
Ophiuchus holds a huge snake, Serpens, in both hands as shown in the Atlas Coelestis of John Flamsteed (1729).
Ophiuchus appears to stand on Scorpius, the scorpion, with his left foot. The V-shaped group of stars above the tail of the serpent, next to the right shoulder of Ophiuchus, once formed part of the obsolete constellation Taurus Poniatovii. (Taurus plays an important part in this proverbial picture)
You may have heard some rather strange news recently about a 13th constellation of the zodiac.
The stars and planets were named after the fallen angels by the Greek, and then the Romans as a way to honor their gods.
Although Ophiuchus is not one of the 12 constellations of the zodiac, the Sun passes through its southern regions in the first half of December. Ophiuchus is shown in the sky holding a snake.
Chinese associations include the Greeks gods, (Zeus, Apollo, etc) who are actually the demi-gods of Atlantis. More on the celestial meanings in the links provided below.
Did you notice the chi-reference? “Christ”. This is by design! Of course this is NOT Jesus Christ in The Bible, it’s the false messiah. Also note: Chi in Chinese mythology means “dragon”. Why? Because the dragons of old are the sky-gods (fallen angels).
Next, we have the “Phoenix”.
The double-headed eagle is probably the most easily recognizable Masonic symbol in the world, even more important than the Square and Compass/Rule.
They look like two eagles, but they are not. They are the Phoenix Bird of Ancient Egypt. Remember that the Brotherhood was known in ancient Egypt as, “The Mystery Schools.”
The current Presidential Seal has an eagle in it. The eagle replaced the Phoenix(the original national bird) in 1841 as the national bird. The Phoenix has been a Brotherhood symbol since ancient Egypt.
The Phoenix was adopted by the Founding Fathers for use on the reverse of the first official seal of the United States after a design proposed by Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress.
Listen to the explanation from Masonic author, Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree, K.T., in his book, The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy .
“Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers … in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences. The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red. The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage. At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color … The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection … The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again.” [p. p. 176-77]
Then, we have Taurus. Taurus symbolizes dual relationships in the occult. The keynotes of Taurus are, as usual, clear in their implication. “The Eye” of the cosmic Bull (Satan). This is the “All-Seeing Eye”, same eye of the Illuminati/Masonic paths. The eye of vision of the individual man must likewise open in response to the ‘cosmic light’. Of course, this is the false light of Lucifer/Satan.
Are you beginning to see a picture unfolding here?
Charles Kennard of Baltimore, Maryland who acted on it. In 1890, he pulled together a group of four other investors—including Elijah Bond (Freemason), a local attorney, and Col. Washington Bowie, a surveyor—to start the Kennard Novelty Company to exclusively make and market these new talking boards.
“He (William Fuld) attended public school and later the Maryland Institute for the Promotion of the Mechanic Arts / Schools of Art and Design. At the age of 17 he landed his first documented job as a painter/varnisher in 1887. This trade led him to the Kennard Novelty Company which opened their doors in 1890. Though often cited as mereley an employee, company records show he was one of the the original stock holders. It is through his deep friendship with Col. Washington Bowie, William began his association with the Wonderful Talking Board and his meteoric rise to become known as the Father of the Ouija Board.”
William Fuld manufactured various talking boards and other amusements moving frequently into larger factories until in 1918 when he built a three story, 36,000 feet factory at Harford Avenue, Lamont Avenue, and Federal Street. The factory cost one-hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. On April 24th 1919 William became the sole owner of the Ouija board when Col. Washington Bowie assigned all remaining rights and interest in the U. S. Ouija trademark 18,919 to him.
William saw the Ouija board through numerous company names; The Kennard Novelty Company, The Ouija Novelty Company, Isaac Fuld & Bother, William Fuld, and William Fuld & Sons…(all Freemasons). William also saw the Ouija board tear him and his brother Isaac apart, separating their families in a feud lasting almost a century beginning in 1901 and ending with their grandchildren Kathy and Stuart in 1997.
In 1904, like many associated with the Ouija board, he became a member of the Masons.
On February 24th 1927 while overseeing the replacement of a flagpole, William Fuld was tragically killed by complications falling from the roof of his three story Harford, Lamont, and Federal Street factory. The iron support he was leaning on gave way, and he tumbled backwards off the roof, grasping and catching one of the factory windows and then falling to the ground. He suffered a “concussion of the brain, five fractured ribs, a broken arm, a fractured leg, and numerous cuts and bruises.” An employee who witnessed the fall picked him up and rushed him to the hospital where he later died from one of his broken ribs piercing his heart. Laying on his deathbed he made his children promise they would never sell the Ouija board.
The business was taken over by his children headed by William A. Fuld. Due to the age and recurrent health problems of William Andrew the entire business and the Ouija board were sold to Parker Brothers on February 24th 1966. It was the thirty-ninth anniversary of William Fuld’s death.
William Fuld—the “Wonderful Talking Board”:
“Ouija knows all the answers. Weird and mysterious. Surpasses, in its unique results, mind reading, clairvoyance and second sight. It furnishes never failing amusement and recreation for the entire family. As unexplainable as Hindu magic—more intense and absorbingly interesting than a mystery story.
Ouija gives you entertainment you have never experienced. It draws the two people using it into close companionship and weaves about them a feeling of mysterious isolation. Unquestionably the most fascinating entertainment for modern people and modern life.”
CIRCLE THE SQUARE
“If you try to circle the square, you try to do something that is very difficult or impossible.”
The transcendental nature of this phrase, of course…originates with the Masonic. Their symbols are the Square and Compass. “Squaring the Circle” is an ancient geometrical problem of using only a straight line and compass (and a finite number of steps) being able to construct a square of equal area to any given circle.
This is symbolic of “SECRET SOCIETIES” due to their hidden knowledge! But, you see…nothing remains hidden because GOD said all darkness will come to light!
Luke 8 (KJV)
17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
In the mid-19th century, the world was bitten by the spiritualist bug. Spiritualists believed it was an undeniable scientific fact that there WAS life after death and that a person’s religious beliefs were not subject to rules.
The board has been called by many names—talking board, spirit board, witch board—but most know it as “Ouija Board”.
Kennard claims the board told him repreatedly that the name meant “good luck” in Egypt. But, the name in French actually means—yes-yes.
Although many scientists and even religious authorities theorized that the board was nothing evil, the majority of evil reports came in the late 70’s, after a novel was published which in turn became a blockbuster movie. The story holds that a teenager revealed to her mother that she had been talking to a person named “Captain Howdy”. (The Exorcist)
It has always been mysterious. It has always been mystifying. Sit opposite your partner and rest your fingers lightly on the planchette. Now ask your question. Concentrate very hard…and watch as the answer is revealed in the message window. Will it tell you YES…or NO? Will it give you a NUMBER…or SPELL out the answer? Ask any question you want. Ouija will answer. It’s only a game isn’t it? From the Parker Brothers Ouija Board
In Ceremonial Magick and Sorcery, thirty third degree Freemason, Manly P. Hall, wrote the following as he discusses the “agreement” made by “black magic” practitioners and demons:
“In the case of black magic, it is the magician and not the demon who must sign the pact. When the black magician binds an elemental to his service, a battle of wits ensues, which the demon eventually wins. With his own blood the magician signs the pact between himself and the demon, for in the arcanum of magic it is declared that ‘he controls the soul who controls the blood of another.’ As long as the magician does not fail, the elemental will fulfil to the letter his obligation under the pact, but the demon will try in every possible way to prevent the magician from carrying out his part of the contract.”
The point of the statement is that the magickian and demon seemingly come to an agreement, of sorts. However, this is a battle of wits…and demons have been around for millennia and are far more intelligent than humans.
The Ouija Board is simply a modern day incarnation of very ancient practices, whereby engaging in divination; to ascertain information.
In this case, envisage a flat board wherein are printed letters, numbers, etc. one or more persons place their fingertips upon a scrolling device (planchette) which will be eventually controlled by spirits.
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Although there are many forms of magick…(this is not the kind that inserts a man on stage doing simple card tricks or pulling rabbits out of a hat. But, present day magicians are playing with fire because they are conjuring demons to become rich & famous by way of the occult.), this specific type is the magick workings of conjuring and banishing.
The rules are simple:
A magickian calls forth, raises, conjures what is termed as an ‘elemental’, a demon…for their direct purpose…and then sends them away, or banishes them.
Here is something that will become key; the magickian does the conjuring with the utility of a magick circle (often adorned with sigils of various kinds). The circle is means to form a wall of protection to the magickian and a wall of incarceration to the demon.
The sad ending to this is: most people do these acts but don’t know how to banish! The Necronomicon is full of sigils to conjure, but even adepts who’ve utilized these concepts admit that they contain banishing techniques and scary is the fact that these kinds of books are conceived by people who simply piece together ancient Canaanite sigils who have no idea what their doing!
The dangerous nature of this parallels itself to people using the Ouija Board…which gives one access to conjure but ultimately the demon does not go away. In fact, it can remain with those people for the rest of their lives causing horrific events the whole time.
Many have reported that the demons have, ultimately, stated words to the effect of, “Did you think that you can call upon me and send me away like a common prostitute?” No, indeed.
In his new book, Sleep Paralysis – What it is and how to stop it, Chris White wrote the following (pp. 35-36):
“Take for example the Ouija board. It’s supposed to allow you to communicate with the spirit world right? Well, it does, in a sense.
Here’s the secret about a Ouija board: It’s just cardboard and ink. It has no power of its own. It is simply a vehicle for a human to ask for contact with spirits in their hearts, even if they don’t actually say it with their mouths. When you sit down and play with a Ouija board, a tarot card reading, or one of several other activities, what you are saying in your heart is: ‘spirits, I want you to be here. I want to contact you.’
You are giving them the only thing they need – permission. There seems to be a kind of a ‘rule of engagement’ that they need your permission. And things like tarot cards and Ouija are ways to trick you into giving it to them, to trick you into asking for them to be there. In exchange, the demons use the open invitation you have given them to do something supernatural which is intended to validate the experience and make you want to do more.
This of course benefits them in the long run because it means you will be opening the door wider for them.”
Even a known occultist, Manly P. Hall, notes in the Horizon Magazine for October-December 1944 A.D.:
“during the last 20-25 years I have had considerable personal experience with persons who have complicated their lives through dabbling with the Ouija board. Out of every hundred such cases, at least 95 are worse off for the experience…I know of broken homes, estranged families, and even suicides that can be traced directly to this source.”
According to Robert Murch, the story of the board’s patent request was true: Knowing that if they couldn’t prove that the board worked, they wouldn’t get their patent, Bond brought the indispensible Peters to the patent office in Washington with him when he filed his application. There, the chief patent officer demanded a demonstration—if the board could accurately spell out his name, which was supposed to be unknown to Bond and Peters, he’d allow the patent application to proceed. They all sat down, communed with the spirits, and the planchette faithfully spelled out the patent officer’s name. Whether or not it was mystical spirits or the fact that Bond, as a patent attorney, may have just known the man’s name, well, that’s unclear, Murch says. But on February 10, 1891, a white-faced and visibly shaken patent officer awarded Bond a patent for his new “toy or game.”
An advertisement in a New York newspaper declared it “interesting and mysterious” and testified, “Proven at Patent Office before it was allowed. Price, $1.50.”
The board is just wood because you could potentially place these symbols from the Ouija Board upon anything and communicate with demons.
In modern times…we don’t even really need this! Demons are readily available at just the thought of opening a portal.
My last thought was this:
CERN…we know is conducting experiments where they admit they may “breach another dimension and unleashing forces of darkness.”
If so…then allowing these dark forces in…and not banishing them…is playing with fire!
Halloween – The Eve of the Devil. Part 9
The aftermath of Halloween and What do Witches do?
Every year we here of people who are murdered (sacrificed) during the season of Halloween. Children disappear never to be seen again. Many become drug addicted and demon possessed as a result of taking part in rituals and going just a bit further into the realm of darkness. It usually results in a severe bondage of some sort and many times leads to suicide. This is the objective of satan for he is here for one reason: John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: (oh but here is the good news folks) I (Jesus) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Halloween may end for the casual dabbler but for Pagans it is just a continuation from one Sabbat to the next. This is a life style of worshiping nature and false gods so that one can be in harmony with nature and the life cycle. Its the same lie that was whispered in the Garden of Eden!
This next part was written by Tom Horn in 2004. Raiders News has changed to SkyWatchTV
All Hallow’s Eve Is More Than Candy and Playtime For Dark Members of Society. Halloween comes and goes for most of us. But for members of Wicca, one of the fastest growing religions in the world, the season of Samhain is a magic time.
The Halloween Sabbat (celebration) concludes for Wiccans on November 1 with the final turn of the year-wheel. Mother Earth nods a sad farewell to the god who will be reborn at Yule (December 20), and the life cycle begins again. This is a time to honor the Earth Mother, remember the Ancients, and revere the Horned god of the Hunt.
According to the Celtic Almanac, the Wiccan year begins following Halloween. The seasonal scenario that follows is reminiscent of the earth goddess and dying-god cults of ancient civilizations.
* Yule is on December 20 and celebrates the goddess giving birth to the Sun god.
* The next season is Imbolc and marks the recovery of the goddess after giving birth to the god.
* The Spring Equinox (Ostara) marks the first day of Spring. The goddess awakes as the days grow longer and the light overtakes the darkness. The goddess fills the earth with fertility.
* Beltane celebrates the transformation of the boy god into manhood. He is filled with lust for the goddess and lies with her in the grass. The earth becomes pregnant with her vitality. Crops begin to grow. Flowers bloom.
* Litha (midsummer) arrives as the powers of nature escalate. The Earth Mother is filled with fertility. Wiccans practice numerous kinds of magic during this season.
* The next season is Lughnasadh, the time of the first harvest. The Wiccan god begins to lose his strength as the Sun rises higher each day. The nights grow longer. The god begins to die.
* Mabon is the completion of the harvest. The Wiccan god suffers death, draws back into darkness, and waits to be reborn at Yule.
The Wicca year-cycle described above is very similar to concepts held by early pagans, who viewed the natural world with awe and superstition. Ancients watched the changing of the seasons and wondered about the life and death of crops. They perceived such natural processes as mystic, and developed fertility cults with gods and goddesses who died and were reborn. The worship of the earth’s “spirit” as a mother, and the incarnation of the earth’s fertility forces within dying gods and goddesses, developed into one of the most widespread forms of paganism in antiquity.
Whether it was Inanna of the Sumerians, Ishtar of the Babylonians, or Fortuna of the Romans, every civilization had a sect of religion based on the embodiment of the earth’s spirit as a caring mother-goddess. The Egyptians worshipped Hathor in this way, as did the Chinese, Shingmoo. The Germans worshipped Hertha as the great Mother Earth, and the apostate Jews idolized “the queen of heaven.” In Greece, the queen of the Olympian goddesses and Mother Earth was Hera. Before her was Gaia (Gaea), the creator-mother earth, and beneath her were many other earth goddesses including Demeter, Artemis, Aphrodite, and Hecate.
MOTHER EARTH IN ANTIQUITY
The principal idea was, and evidently still is among Wiccans, that the Earth is a sentient being. The ancient and universally accepted idea that the “living Earth” was also a fertile mother was conceptualized in different ways and in various goddess myths and images throughout the ancient world. In The Golden Asse, by second century Roman philosopher Lucius Apuleius, evidence reveals that the spirit of the earth was perceived as a feminine force, and that such force incarnated itself at various times, and to different people, within the goddess mothers.
Note how Lucius prays to the earth spirit:
O blessed Queen of Heaven, whether thou be the Dame Ceres [Demeter] which art the original and motherly source of all fruitful things in earth, who after the finding of thy daughter Proserpina [Persephone], through thy great joy which thou diddest presently conceive, madest barraine and unfruitful ground to be plowed and sown, and now thou inhabits in the land of Eleusie [Eleusis]; or whether thou be the celestial Venus [or] horrible Proserpina, thou hast the power to stop and put away the invasion of the hags and ghosts which appear unto men, and to keep them down in the closures [womb] of the earth; thou which nourishest all the fruits of the world by thy vigor and force; with whatsoever name is or fashion it is lawful to call upon thee, I pray thee, to end my great travail.
The earth spirit responds to Lucius:
Behold Lucius I am come, thy weeping and prayers hath moved me to succour thee. I am she that is the natural mother of all things, mistresses and governesses of all the elements, the initial progeny of worlds, chief of powers divine, Queene of heaven, the principal of the Gods celestial, the light of the goddesses: at my will the planets of the ayre [air], the wholesome winds of the Seas, and the silence of hell be disposed; my name, my divinity is adored throughout all the world in divers manners, in variable customs and in many names, for the Phrygians call me the mother of the Gods: the Athenians, Minerva: the Cyprians, Venus: the Candians, Diana: the Sicilians, Proserpina: the Eleusians, Ceres: some Juno, other Bellona, other Hecate: and principally the aethiopians, Queene Isis.
One could assume, based on such texts, that a single spiritual source (or realm) energized the many goddess myths. Likewise, in the ancient Hymn, “To Earth, The Mother Of All,” Homer illustrates how the earth-spirit was universally involved in the affairs and lives of nations.
Through Homer’s dedication to the earth we discover how far-reaching and omnipresent the mother-earth spirit was thought to be:
I will sing of well founded Earth, mother of all, eldest of all beings. She feeds all creatures that are in the world, all that go upon the goodly land, and all that are in the paths of the seas, and all that fly: all these are fed by her store. Through you, O queen, men are blessed in their children and blessed in their harvests, and to you it belongs to give means of life to mortal men and to take it away. Happy is the man whom you delight to honor! He hath all things abundantly: his fruitful land is laden with corn, his pastures are covered with cattle, and his house is filled with good things. Such men rule orderly in their cities of fair women: great riches and wealth follow them: their sons exult with ever-fresh delight, and their daughters in flower-laden bands play and skip merrily over the soft flowers of the field. Thus it is with those whom you honor O holy goddess, bountiful spirit. Hail, mother of the gods, wife of starry Heaven; freely bestow upon me for this my song substance that cheers the heart! And now I will remember you and another song also.
From these and other ancient records, it is obvious that the earth was more than an agricultural or herbaceous facility to the pagans. She was the personable and “eldest of all beings,” the “holy goddess,” the “bountiful spirit,” the all-nourishing mother of men who manifested herself within the popular idols of the mother goddesses.
Modern Wiccans and other neo-pagans perceive the earth similarly, often referring to the earth as Gaia–a living, caring entity. We are told that people are just one of Mother Earth’s species, not her dominators. She provides the living biosphere: the regions on, above, and below her surface, where created things, both physical and spiritual, live. During the Samhain sabbat (Halloween), pagans celebrate the time when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, thus spirits beneath Gaia’s surface can more easily communicate with the living.
SOMETHING WICCA THIS WAY COMES
Wiccans might find it interesting that many Christian theologians also believe the physical earth contains spiritual forces. In the Book of Revelation, chapter nine and verse fourteen, we read of “the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.” Likewise, in Job 26:5, we find “Dead things are formed from under the waters.” The literal Hebrew translation says, “The Rafa (fallen angels) are made to writhe from beneath the waters.”
Additional biblical references indicate that the earth is a kind of holding tank, or prison, where God has bound certain fallen entities. (2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6) That such fallen spirits seek to communicate with, or participate in the affairs of humanity, is defined in Scripture. The Hebrew people were warned that earth spirits pretending to be gods might seek communion with men, and, when the witch of Endor communicated with the same, they ascended up from “out of the earth” (1 Sam. 28:13). It would seem, based on such Scriptures, that the dynamic or energy behind the earth-goddess-spirits of Halloween is indeed real, and, according to the Christian doctrine, identical with the legions of fallen spiritual forces bound within the earth.
Sadly, as in antiquity, those who practice modern paganism worship “devils” (Rev. 9:20). The dogma once embraced (and still is through Wicca) as the wisdom of the goddesses, is defined in the scriptures as the “doctrines of devils.” The Apostle Paul said, “the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils” (1 Cor. 10:20).
In Acts 7:41-42 (Jerusalem Bible), we find those who worship idols joined to the “army of heaven” [stratos, the “fallen angel army”], and Psalm 96:5 concludes, “all the gods of the nations are idols” (elilim, LXX daimonia [demons]). Thus, pagan images, such as represented the ancient gods and goddesses, were “elilim” (empty, nothing, vanity), but behind the empty idols were the living dynamics of idolatry, and spiritual objects of heathen adoration: demons.
Because the Bible clearly defines earth-centered goddess worship as the homage of demons, and since demons are eternal personalities that desire the worship of humans, it is fair to characterize Wiccan deities, including the god, goddess, and Horned god of the Hunt, as neo-pagan titles attributed to demon spirits.
WITCHES ARE PEOPLE TOO
It is also true that many Wiccans are caring, intelligent people. Some claim to be former Christians. As we enter a new millennium the Church must move with compassion to understand and reach such with the Gospel.
I’ve asked myself before, were we not paying attention as some who are now involved in Wicca searched for spiritual meaning? Did we look past them at church or on the job? Do we continue to do so? Not everyone will receive the Gospel, but Wiccans are everywhere and they are people for whom Jesus died.
The New Testament tells the story of presenting the Gospel to pagans. It records conversions to Christ and the abandonment of earth-centered goddess cults. So powerful was the spread of the early Christian faith that pagan religions that had dominated the Middle East for thousands of years, crumbled. The cold embrace of Mother Earth could not match the magnetic warmth of the love of God. The last recorded utterance of the oracle at Delphi seems to indicate the spirit of the Olympians understood he was no match for Jesus.
From Man, Myth & Magic, we read:
“Apollo delivered his last oracle in the year 362 AD, to the physician of the Emperor Julian, the Byzantine ruler who tried to restore paganism after Christianity had become the official religion of the Byzantine Empire. ‘Tell the King,’ said the oracle, ‘that the curiously built temple has fallen to the ground, that bright Apollo no longer has a roof over his head, or prophetic laurel, or babbling spring. Yes, even the murmuring water has dried up.'”
The worship of Diana in Ephesus was another stronghold of earth-centered goddess cults. Dianic witchcraft was the greatest single unifying religion among all pagan people up to that time. It took 220 years to build the massive temple to Diana in Ephesus. But when Paul preached the Gospel of Jesus to the Ephesians, “Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed” (Acts 19:17-20).
May we with joy declare such a life-changing Gospel. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Rom. 1:16).
I pray that you would take to heart what has been presented to you, if you made it this far. Sad to say most probably left after the first couple of paragraphs at the beginning. Take it to the Lord and ask him to help you become free from the bondage that Halloween may have brought into your life. If you need assistance please contact us for help!

Halloween – The Eve of the Devil. Part 9
The Christian Connection
2nd Corinthians 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
What are you teaching your Child? Are you teaching him or her the ways of God, or the ways of Paganism?
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
“Understanding the hellish history of Halloween-why in the world did decent people so embrace it? What magic “trick” transformed rancid Samhain into the giddy Halloween?
As the Catholic missionaries swarmed Britain and Ireland seeking the mass conversion to Catholicism their orders from Pope Gregory in 601 A.D. was to cunningly convert the Druid rituals into Catholic rituals. The Catholics converted the ritual of Samhain into the festival of All Saint’s Day, a day of celebration and prayer to dead “Saints.” Source
When we say the Christian Connection, it means the Catholic Church and its rituals. Catholicism is NOT Christianity, it is religion. So technically, the connection is between Paganism and a man-made religion, and NOT the True Gospel of Jesus Christ!
All Saints Day, once celebrated in Spring, was a Roman Catholic observance, which was later to merge with Samhain. This day that honored all the “hallowed” saints was first observed on the evening of May 13, and was known as the All hallows festival. All Saints’ Day or All Hallow’s Eve (from whence Halloween) originated in the 7th century when the Pantheon at Rome was wrested from the barbarians, made into a cathedral, and renamed the Church of the Blessed Virgin and All Martyrs. Thus, from honoring “all gods” (which is the meaning of the Greek word “pantheon”) the Pantheon became the center for glorifying all saints. (This allowed the Pagans to continue to worship multiple gods, just by changing their names to those of the Saints.)
Jeremiah 10:2 “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” Now what part of that scripture do you not understand? Have you ever read it before? Whenever there is a “Thus saith the LORD” you had best pay close attention and heed what God is saying!
The new combined holiday was officially authorized in 835 by Pope Gregory IV and moved to November 1 to coincide with Samhain. It began on the evening of October 31, which was called All Hallows Eve. This was done to mingle the violent Celtic pagans without having to try and force them to drop their pagan practices and accept Christianity. The church merely made room to accommodate the heathen. The Roman Church incorporated the customs of Samhain as a method of furthering its mission to convert the known world to Roman Catholicism. Samhain and All Saints Day made a strange combination: one reveling in evil spirits, the other honoring “saints.”
Joining of the two celebrations produced a myriad of beliefs about what was happening in the spirit world. Souls supposedly in purgatory were suddenly appearing as witches and toads come to torment persons who had wronged them. The ritualistic bone-fires of Halloween suddenly were burning as a symbol of comfort for the souls in purgatory as people prayed holding burning straw in the air. Even the wicked trick-or-treating by evil spirits took on an acceptable church flavor as costumed children went around offering to fast for the departed souls in return for money or an offering. As the Celts converted to the new religion, they did not forget their ancient tales of the dead who traveled to the after world on Samhain. In spite of the effort to “civilize the holiday, the exhibitions of this night belied the evil and the observance adopted malicious overtones.
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; 30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.31 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. 32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
Halloween is an ancient observance, it’s been around for thousands of years, but despite all efforts to reform its crude, disgusting, and evil history, has it improved? Or, is it still Satan’s holiday? My answer to that is “yes” it remains Satan’s holiday. Even though we live in the computer and wireless age where everything is quick and easy, and the Word of God is being spread abroad faster than ever, where religious rituals involving immoral deeds are frowned upon by even non-Christians, the acts and spirit of Halloween have not been altered, including sexual rituals and human sacrifices. There are young women today being forced to bare children solely for the purpose of sacrifice. These babies are born purposely to be offered as sacrifices in satanic rituals and beastly acts, every Halloween. There are women and children who are raped in the woods on Halloween night in some satanic rituals. This stuff is real, and as Christians, I don’t think we can afford to remain blind any longer. We need to wake up, and see what we are celebrating every year. Worse yet what are we passing down to our children and grandchildren? In our modern day, Satanists and Witch’s covens rejoice in season, the time when Satan himself comes to “fellowship” with his followers. Many changes have occurred over the centuries, but one thing has remained the same and that is the practice of giving an “offering” or “sacrifice”. Satan demands it and his minions gladly oblige.
Listen to this testimony:
“Today Halloween is a High Satanic Holiday. On this day children are brutally tortured and offered in sacrifice to Satan. I have actually spoken to people who have watched the demonic rituals and have partaken in them. The babies are birthed by “carrier women” impregnated by Satanists specifically for this purpose. Seldom is evidence ever found due to the fact that the secretiveness of all the rituals are extremely concealed and threats are made to those who would dare divulge the truth.
Satanists torture, mutilate, murder and even commit cannibalism on their victims. It is not only horrifying but demonic – just what they intend. As they commit these rituals they actually “gain” Satanic power and strength. In the same way that we gain power, joy and victory through Christian fellowship so they gain demonic strength through their rituals. On high holidays – such as Halloween – it is an all-out demonic celebration of death. No good thing comes from this night.
When we know what is behind Halloween there is little that can be celebrated. Though there are a million arguments to celebrate this night, i.e. “It’s just fun to let the kids dress up; It’s just a holiday; We aren’t doing anything evil; We dress up as angels, etc.” – it is still a night that innocent babies all over the world will be brutally murdered. I have always found it difficult to celebrate Halloween knowing that innocent children are suffering a slow, torturous death.” Source
The Obscene in Halloween
Halloween has always manifested the obscene. Its horrid history is paved with vandalism, destruction and wickedness and all manor of evil. The sickening depravity of razor blades and needles in apples and poisoned candies of the 1970’s was a clear testimony to the evil of Halloween.
Some say that Halloween brings out the evil side of human nature in certain individuals. The number of vandalism acts committed each year on Halloween certainly seems to support this. . . (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 23)
Satanic High Priestess Blanche Barton, on The Church of Satan web site, praises Halloween stating:
“It [Halloween] gives even the most mundane people the opportunity to taste wickedness for one night. They have a chance to dance with the Devil…I see Satanists all over the world meeting in small groups this night and Hallowe’ens 500 years hence, to raise a glass to the Infernal Hosts…” Source
Halloween has always been a night of perversion and inversion—a night where misrule rules and decadence masquerades as decency. Halloween’s “best kept secret” is its romantic love affair with homosexuals. Halloween was the golden key that unlocked the homosexual’s closet of perversion. Halloween’s spirit of inversion, bestowed the homosexuals one utopian night to publicly flaunt their corruption and immorality.
It is an opportunity to act out one’s desires or fantasies. . . Halloween is unquestionably a night of inversion. (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night, p. 137)
Greenwich Village has a long, albeit erratic, history of impromptu Halloween celebrations, and there is undoubtedly a link between the recent emergence of such carnivalesque celebrations and the increasingly public nature of gay culture. . . (Santino, Jack. Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life, p. 194)
Yet it has been the gay community that has most flamboyantly exploited Halloween’s potential as a transgressive festival . . . Indeed, it is the gay community that has been arguably more responsible for Halloween’s adult rejuvenation. (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night, p. 132)
For gay people, Halloween is a moment of utopian wishfulness . . . (Santino, Jack. Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life, p. 211)
The Omen of Halloween
While many deem Halloween as harmless fun and fantasy, Halloween subtlety disarms our (and especially our children’s) discernment of witches and the occult. Halloween’s magic potion of “fun and frolic” transformed witches, demons, devils and evil incarnate into “fine folks.” Over 1.2 million practicing and proud witches live in America. Witchcraft currently is the fastest growing religion in America. At some time, nearly every little girl becomes a witch on Halloween. Witch RavenWolf delights when a vulnerable little girl dresses as a witch on Halloween:
Today, just about every little girl in our society, at one time or another, has chosen to costume herself as a Witch. . . If you choose a Witch’s costume this Halloween . . . Hold your head up and wear your Witch’s garb proudly in their honor. (RavenWolf, Silver. Halloween: Customs, Recipes & Spells, p. 64)
Occult historian Jean Markale discloses Halloween bids more than childish dress-up. It is a pagan “initiatory journey” guided by someone [Satan] “hidden in the shadows,” and none “return from Halloween innocent”:
The passage into the world of Halloween is truly an initiatory journey. One does not return from it an innocent. But making the journey alone does not mean there was no guide, no initiator, someone who prompted the quest and who, sometimes hidden in the shadows, watches over the comings and goings of the neophyte through this labyrinth that is the Other World. (Markale, Jean. The Pagan Mysteries of Halloween, p. 127)
Dr. David Enoch, former senior consultant psychiatrist at the Royal Liverpool Hospital and the University of Liverpool, states: Halloween practices open the door to the occult and can introduce forces into people’s lives that they do not understand and often cannot combat. . . (Parker, Russ. Battling the Occult, p. 35)
With all the promotion of witchcraft in our media, it is no wonder that young people today are fascinated. Every channel on Television, most of the Hollywood movies, music videos and songs on the Hit Parade, all force feeding the occult to our kids 24/7. Our young people today have a love affair with death. Take a serious look around you. They dress all in black with skulls and upside down crosses all over them. Their heroes are Vampires and Witches. They can’t get enough blood and guts. They are so hyped up on fear porn, they are addicted. You would be amazed to find out how many young people that you know are either practicing witches or have at least dabbled in it.
With all the violence in school and all the bullying. It is no wonder they are looking for something to give them some power and/or protection. They should be finding that safety in God. But, we have allowed the pagans to kick God out of our nation. Yes, I said nation. He was kicked out of our schools long ago, then our government, and now our cities and most people’s lives. These kids are turning to the dark side by the millions, because they see power there. There is power there. Demonic forces have power and authority for a time. Without the blood of the Savior, our young people are lost. Easy prey for the forces of evil.
Opportunities of Halloween
“And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire. . .” Jude 1:23
This entire season is a matter of life and death for countless people around the globe. We need to rise up and take up the fight. Spend the month before and after this satanic day to lift in prayer those who have been targeted, captured or even bred for sacrifice. Fast and pray. Warn those with whom you come in contact to be extra careful during this time period.
The devil’s troops are out there recruiting, are you? Go ye therefore… Before it is too late. Generation X is lost…hopelessly lost, unless we do something.
Is Halloween a TRICK or TREAT?
Most absolutely a TRICK. As you can see from all the above the real meaning of Halloween has been watered down. It is Satan’s objective to get all to worship him. The greatest weapon/tool he has is deception. IF he can get you to buy the lie, he has you. God tells us to not have anything to do with any of these hideous practices.
Peter I 5:8 Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour.
1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons.
If you are a professing Christian, you have no reason to be associating yourself in any way with this satanic unholy day. When you do the same things, on the same day, for whatever reason, you are aligned with them. Please don’t say “well everybody does it”. NO, everybody is NOT doing it. God will hold you responsible for what you do this Halloween. Will you ignore the truth and participate in deeds of unrighteousness, or will you pass the word along and lead someone else to the truth?

Graveyards and Haunted houses
1st Thessalonians 4:16-18 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
With all that we have shown you about Halloween being darkness and death, let’s interject a bit of good news for a moment. In the Bible there are many verses about Death and Dying. There are too many to list here so click this link for death and dying, and this link on death. Get your Bible, if you have one, to study these verses further. It is not all bad IF you know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Of course if you chose to follow the lord of Halloween, the god of this current world system, then you have reason to fear death! Death of this mortal body is really just the beginning. All of our bodies will go back to the dust of the earth that is if we die and get buried Ecclesiastes 12:7. Jesus has promised that He was going to prepare a place that believers will inhabit one day. John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” There is no reason to fear death if you are a child of God (1st Corinthians 15:50-58) and this is why we include the graveyard in this series.
The Graveyard or Cemetery
Ghoul Habitat or Sacred Refuge?
Graves have long been a frequent haunt of legendary and mythical creatures. Sometimes they’re spirits of the dead, other times simply nefarious beings who like to hang out near graves, such as the ghouls of Africa, India and the Middle East. But some monsters, like the Headless Horseman, are more afraid of graveyards than you are. In the Manx folklore of the British Isles, one sure way to avoid an attack from the terrifying buggane was to flee into the sacred protection of the churchyard. Unable to pursue you, the monster would rip its own head off and heave it in after you — where it would shatter to pieces. Source
People generally have a mentality that ghosts and evil spirits come out at night. More so in a place like a cemetery, where people’s fears get heightened thinking it is haunted. That fear about seeing ghostly figures is why many try to avoid going to the cemetery. Most people are afraid of death and being around or in a graveyard only reminds them of mortality. Most won’t even discuss funeral arrangements. Whatever the root of fear it may be from images and participation in Halloween activities as a child.
As Samhain/Halloween is the time when the veil between the living and the dead is supposed to be its thinnest, naturally people who practice the dark arts and or worship the lord of the dead, are drawn to cemeteries/graveyards. Witchcraft teaches that there is innate power in the dirt from a graveyard. Many dark arts use the graveyard dirt for the purposes of casting spells/curses and draw power for the magic craft.
Vampires are thought to rise up out of their graves to prowl through the night. They must return to their graves by sunlight, according to the legends. Because of these beliefs about vampires and the current fascination with them, many people visit graveyards to practice vampirism and to worship the dead.
Halloween is also a time when many people participate in exchanging Ghost stories. Due to the curiosity these arouse, you might find groups of young people visiting graveyards to watch for any signs of Ghosts or hauntings. Foolishness that can cause much more problems for these folks than realize.
All of these groups are putting themselves in real danger, both physically and spiritually. Demonic spirits are not something you want to invite into your life. They are very real, and they have power. Some people are foolish enough to believe that they can control these demons. TRUST ME you cannot. The demons may allow you to think you can, just long enough for you to expose yourself. Once you do, they have you.
Here in the United States, people have become so obsessed with death and the grave, it is insane. Halloween has blown way out of control. It is at least equal to Christmas as far as money and effort spent on decorations, I am sure. It is unbelievable the lengths people will go to, in the interest of scaring people to death. No one can pretend any longer that this is all “for the children to have innocent fun”. Unwittingly those who are participating in all of this are giving power to the devil and opening themselves up for spiritual oppression or even possession. Here is a video that will demonstrate:

The Tombstone and its Symbolism
A headstone, or gravestone is a stele or marker, usually stone, that is placed over a grave. A tombstone is a stele or marker, usually stone, that is placed over a tomb. They are traditional for burials in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions, among others. In most cases they have the deceased’s name, date of birth, and date of death inscribed on them, along with a personal message, or prayer, but they may contain pieces of funerary art, especially details in stone relief. In many parts of Europe insetting a photograph of the deceased in a frame is very common. Source Wikipedia
Once again, people have a fascination for graveyards and things related to them for various reasons. Halloween draws them all. Wiccans have a practice called grave-rubbing. If they see a particular tombstone that they like, for whatever reason, and want to preserve it.
Facebook: Gray Witches Grimoire
“Grave rubbing is used often when a person is researching and preserving their genealogy/ancestry line. But it can also be used to preserve the memory of a particular grave that you might feel a connection with or simply to meditate on the history of the cemetery. Put your grave rubbings in a special album or frame them and hang them in your sacred space. Framed grave rubbings can be a nice addition to your ancestral altar either at Samhain, or when remembering or calling forth and ancestor to help you.
Finally, always leave an offering for the spirit whose grave your took a rubbing from.”
Here is a story that might bless you. It is about how a pastor overcame the dark forces through prayer:
The power of prayer over witchcraft
Great Story about the Power of Prayer
A haunted house is a house or other building often perceived as being inhabited by disembodied spirits of the deceased who may have been former residents or were familiar with the property. Parapsychologists attribute haunting to the spirits of the dead and the effect of violent or tragic events in the building’s past such as murder, accidental death, or suicide. More scientific explanations for the perception that a percent of Americans, 28 percent of Canadians, and 40 percent of Britons expressed the belief that houses could be “haunted” Source: Wikipedia
A haunted house can be almost any structure converted on Halloween to be as scary as possible. When I was a child the little Methodist Church in I used to attend had one in the attic each year… a CHURCH!!
The Egyptians knew well that if you wanted to keep body snatchers away from a pyramid, the best way was to scare the hell out of them. Mazes, moving walls, self-opening doors, traps and the use of snakes and insects were commonplace in preserving treasures and dead royalty. Granted, they weren’t exactly charging admission for these scares, and the public was not lining up to get lost in the snake room, but this is one of the earliest examples of people crafting devices and sets to provoke fear.
The Greeks and Romans also unknowingly seeded the path for haunted attractions. Their folklore is rich with mazes and labyrinths, all filled with monsters. As theater was a vital part of their culture, it stands to reason that these ancients began devising rudimentary special FX to represent monsters and beasts. They also pioneered a number of theatrical devices that would evolve into the spooky elements used in haunts today, including fog, trapdoors, ghostly images and even fake blood and gore. Source Also see the same source for a complete history of haunted houses.
In recent history we have seen the “Haunted House Attraction” phenomenon expand at a hellish rate. They are increasing rapidly, not only in number but in fright factor.

Frankly, if baffles those of us of a gentler nature, why anyone would pay money to be scared out of their wits. But, more importantly, once again, these things give ground to the enemy.
Understand something, the power of the imagination is beyond what anyone can conceive. It has been proven, scientifically, that when an athlete is injured and unable to maintain his/her practice schedule, all they have to do is lie in bed and imagine themselves going through their routine and their muscles will actually maintain their size and skill level. Likewise, when you are trying to learn a skill, or if you are hoping to find a job, you are counseled to focus on that thing. It is even suggest that you create a wish board and put up pictures of what you are hoping to manifest. Because imaging is powerful. Be careful little eyes what you see. Remember that song from Sunday school? God told us about this truth in Matthew 5:27 “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
That does not just apply to adultery. It applies to any sin. The devil is fully aware of that. So, if he can get you to imagine in your heart, murder, lying, stealing, participating in Witchcraft… The whole idea of virtual reality, is straight out of the pit of Hell!
What are you helping to create in this world? What does your mind focus upon? Are you watching movies and TV shows about vampires, witches, torture and murder? Or, are you studying the Word of God, praying and singing praises to the Lord?

Halloween – The Eve of the Devil. Part 6
Genies or the Jinn of the Islamic religion
Genies or Jinn….. This is just more false belief and demon manifestation.
Though these are not a typical Halloween symbol – they are covered here because they are more than likely related to all the mystical creatures like fairies, elves, brownies, trolls, dwarfs, ghosts, goblins and hobgoblins. As we have seen these types of entities are in the folklore of just about every nation, tongue and tribe. They are included here to show the universiality of this phenomenon as well as to demonstrate how far back in time they are documented. All of these things are of demonic origin. We are not to look to anyone or anything for our help…but God.
Psalms 121 “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? 2My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.3 He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber.4 Behold, He who keeps Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep.5 The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade on your right hand.6 The sun will not smite you by day, Nor the moon by night.7 The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.8 The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in From this time forth and forever.
Jinn is a noun of the collective number in the Persian language literally meaning “hidden from sight”, and it derives from the Arabic root j-n-n (pronounced: jann/ junn جَنّ / جُنّ) meaning “to hide” or “be hidden”. Other words derived from this root are majnūn ‘mad’ (literally, ‘one whose intellect is hidden’), junūn ‘madness’, and janīn ’embryo, fetus’ (‘hidden inside the womb’). The word genie in English is derived from Latin genius, meaning a sort of tutelary or guardian spirit thought to be assigned to each person at birth. English borrowed the French descendant of this word, génie; its earliest written attestation in English, in 1655, Inscriptions found in Northwestern Arabia seem to indicate the worship of jinn, or at least their tributary status, hundreds of years before Islam. For instance, an inscription from Beth Fasi’el near Palmyra pays tribute to the “jinnaye”, the “good and rewarding gods”. Source: Wikipedia
In Islamic mythology, Jinn, or djinn, are supernatural creatures made of smokeless fire. They are frequently found in Islamic folklore and are mentioned in the Quran, the religious text of Islam. Historically, they are portrayed as menacing creatures that can harm humans, or drive them mad.
Like any supernatural creatures, Jinn have accumulated a rich world through years of folklore and cultural experiences. They are thought to share many characteristics with humans: Jinn are born, fall in love, get married and die, but also have some superhuman abilities, such as flying, moving mountains, becoming visible only when they wish and appearing as animals. Jinn are described as having hooves like a goat’s, and a black tail. [Our 10 Favorite Monsters]
A belief in jinns seems to have persisted despite recent cultural and political changes within Islamic cultures, the researchers said. For example, two recent surveys done in Bangladesh and the United Kingdom in 2011 and 2012 found that many Muslims believe firmly in the existence of jinn, black magic and the “evil eye.” Source
Brief History of Jinn or Genies
Genies (also called Jinn or genii) are spirits in cultures of the Middle East and Africa. The term genie comes from the Arabic word jinni, which referred to an evil spirit that could take the shape of an animal or person. It could be found in every kind of nonliving thing, even air and fire. Jinn (the plural of jinni) were said to have magical powers and are favorite figures in Islamic literature. To the Mende people of Sierra Leone in Africa, genii are spirits who occasionally try to possess living men. The Mende use magic to fight genii who enter the living.
In ancient Rome, the term genii, the plural form of the Latin word genius, referred to the spirits that watched over every man. The genius was responsible for forming a man’s character and caused all actions. Believed to be present at birth, genius came to be thought of as great inborn ability. Women had a similar spirit known as a juno. Some Romans also believed in a spirit, called an evil genius, that fought the good genius for control of a man’s fate. In later Roman mythology, genii were spirits who guarded the household or community.
For the ancient Semites the Jinn were spirits of vanished ancient peoples who acted during the night and disappeared with the first light of dawn; they could make themselves invisible or change shape into animals at will; these spirits were commonly made responsible for diseases and for the manias of some lunatics who claimed that they were tormented by the Jinn. The Arabs believed that the Jinn were spirits of fire, although sometimes they associated them with succubi, demons in the forms of beautiful women, who visited men by night to copulate with them until they were exhausted, drawing energy from their encounter.
Many Muslims would likely view the term “mythological” as a pejorative statement because traditionally they take the belief that Jinn are real beings. The Jinn are said to be creatures with free will, made of smokeless fire by God, much in the same way humans were made of earth. In the Qur’an, the Jinn are frequently mentioned and even Surat 72: Al-Jinn is entirely about them. In fact Muhammad was said to have been sent as a prophet to “men and Jinn”.
Jinn are not to be confused with the Kareen mentioned in the Qur’an in Surat An-Nas and in Islamic mythology. A Kareen is an evil spirit, while technically a Jinn is considered demonic, intent on tricking people into committing sins, similar to a personal demon. As they are unique to each individual, Kareens would be the ones a magician would summon after a person’s death, such as in a séance, for the soul goes to God and the unruly Kareen would remain on earth and would, conforming to his malevolent nature, impersonate the deceased whose character he’s familiar with. Islam strictly forbids magic. Orthodox Muslims however, recite various verses from the Qur’an such as the Throne Verse, Surat an-Nas and Suart al-Falaq as means of protection and prayer. In Islam-associated mythology, the Jinn were said to be controllable by magically binding them to objects, as Solomon most famously did; the Spirit of the Lamp in the story of Aladdin was such a Jinni, bound to an oil lamp.
Aladdin’s Lamp – THE TRAP
The allure of evil is the easy ride. You can have everything your heart desires. Just rub the magic lamp. All your troubles will disappear and you will be rich and loved and happy. NOT! The Bible says. “the heart is deceitful above all things who can know it?” You don’t even know your own heart or your motivation. What destroys you is your own lust. 1st John 2:15-17 “Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.”
In sorcery books Jinn are classified into four races after the classical elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water. In those races they come in tribes, usually seven, each with a king, each king controls his tribe and is controlled by an Angel, whereas the Angel’s name is torture to the Jinn king as well as his specific tribe, much the same way Jesus’ name is to a demon during an exorcism.

Ghosts, Goblins and the Paranormal.
1st John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Ghost: an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. synonyms: specter, phantom, wraith, spirit, presence.
As a snot-nosed kid growing up, my vision of a ghost was of “Casper the “friendly ghost” as portrayed in the old classic cartoon, shown in the video clip to the left. Those who were blessed with a TV set, back in those days, were treated to Saturday morning cartoons like Casper, Scooby Doo and other cartoons that depicted a not so scary side of ghosts, monsters and the like.
All the way back in my younger days, they were already working to condition young people to accept their satanic agenda. Thank the Lord he kept me outdoors most of the time so escaped being indoctrinated by the one-eyed monster…… well, mostly!
Sad to say, today’s young people are not that lucky. In our society, it is nearly impossible for them to avoid, which is why we are in for a world of hurt in the very near future!!
In folklore, mythology, and modern media such as literary fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre [British English] or specter [American English], phantom, apparition, spirit, spook, or haunt) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.

Now, let’s get real about Ghosts!
Ghosts are not what you think at all. What you call “Ghosts” are actually demon spirits.
Demons are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim who are mentioned in Genesis chapter six. The Nephilim are the offspring of fallen angels and humans. The Nephilim were destroyed in the flood, yet their spirits remained on the earth.This view is the oldest belief among the Jewish people. It is a belief that the apostles held to as well. Let me prove why I believe this.
From the facts of the Bible concerning demons, they are disembodied spirits—that is, they once had bodies but lost them. This explains why they hunt for bodies. They crave bodies to inhabit.
Matthew 12:43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Demons are the powers of this dark world, while fallen angels are the spiritual forces of evil in the high places. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Source
What the Bible says about: Ghosts, and Psychics (See written article Here)
Ghosts, Aliens & UFO’s Are Satanic Demonic Deception (excellent, though long, video)
The ancient people, and many cultures even today, worshipped the dead. The dead were worshipped for various reasons. One being that people believed in reincarnation and/or the “circle of life”. To them, all was connected and therefore they could receive guidance and enlightenment from their dead ancestors. Secondly they believed that spirits of the dead walked the earth at night, especially during the Halloween season. So, they tried to placate them to avoid being tormented, or they invited them to visit them or even possess them. This was the old “if you can’t beat them, join them” train of thinking.
The basis of ancestor worship seems to stem from two principle ideas: (1) that “those who have gone before” have a continual and beneficent interest in the affairs of the living; and (2) more widespread, uneasiness, fear of the dead, with practices to placate them.
“On All Souls Day in Brittany, people go to the cemetery to pray for their ancestor’s souls. There is a place called the place of bones where the remains of those long departed are kept together in one tomb. People come to visit this tomb – they walk along the entrance and touch the rows of skulls. They do this so they feel closer to their ancestors. Source
…ghosts are not considered ancestral dead, but identities who are impersonal, unidentifiable, unpredictable, inimical, or malignant. Such acts as ridding houses of the spirits of the dead or foiling ghosts, are common, but they are magical acts rather than rites of worship and reverence. Source
In this next excerpt we see how in the Koreans who were greatly influenced by the Buddist religion, because the do not believe in one God, see the world in a completely different light than western Judeo/Christians. They are open to all types of spirits and spiritual influences.
The shin in shinhwa are a breed apart. They are the gods who live in the heavens and more or less rule over the earth. The other shin (also called chapshin, chap meaning “various” or “miscellaneous”) live on the earth and interact quite regularly with humans; these chapshin are a product of Korean folk religions. Ghosts, faeries, guardian spirits, and even what would be considered monsters in the West are all described by the term chapshin. Interestingly, ghosts and monsters in Korea do not hold the same place of horror and dread as they do in the west; there are, in fact, no truly evil chapshin. A ghost may of course take revenge on someone who has done them wrong, but the Western vampires, ghouls, zombies and the like–fearsome monsters evil to the core–have no counterparts in Korea. Chapshin often act as judges or guardians, punishing the evil and rewarding or protecting the good. This harmony with the supernatural comes from the Buddhist influence with its circular worldview. Life and death are not separate states of being, they are merely part of the same process.
When you choose to believe in ghosts/spirits, you open yourself up to demonic activity. Whether you practice ancestor worship or you believe in wandering spirits the result is the same. You have given them power over you. You actually fear them, more than you fear the one true God. You are honoring them over His word. What you fear most has power over you. If you believe that random spirits of the dead are free to come and go and torment people, you are going to be afraid. You are going to try to do anything to stay clear of them or in their good graces. This is in total defiance of God. Likewise, if you believe that you are forever connected in the “circle of life” to your ancestors and that they are ever available to lead and guide you, this too is an affront to God. You are to look to Him for your guidance, comfort, provision, and no one else. Therefore, you are placing those spirits ahead of God. That is worship.
2nd Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Fear is something Satan has placed in your mind and that is a stronghold in your life! Even the Disciples were fearful and thought Jesus was a “spirit” when he came to them walking on the water. Matthew 14:26 “And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.”
In her book entitled “Redeeming the Land” pages 16 &17, Gwen Shaw explains that when blood is shed in a violent way, whether that is through an accident, physical attack, or war, blood is spilled on the ground. “Numbers 33 You shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.” So you clearly see, that place where the act takes place is now opened to demonic activity. Ground is given to the enemy, by virtue of the blood shed there. That is why Abel’s blood was crying out to God. So, once the door is open, spirits will move in, occupy and travel in and out of the area. People assume that because the spirit or ghost appears where the violence took place that it is the ghost of the person who died. Not so. Demons are able to manifest in any manner they please. They will naturally manifest in a manner which they know you will receive them. If you want to believe it is the spirit of your dead grandmother, that is how they will appear. If you want to believe it is the ghost of some little girl that died there 100 years ago, then that is how you will see it. Demons know you better than you know yourself. And because they are spirit, they are already in eternity, they can travel through time.
A goblin is a legendary evil or mischievous grotesque dwarf-like daemon or monster that appeared in European stories and accounts during the Middle Ages They are ascribed various (sometimes conflicting) abilities, temperaments and appearances depending on the story and country of origin In some cases, goblins are little creatures related to the brownie and gnome. They are usually small, sometimes only a few inches tall, sometimes the size of a dwarf, and have magical abilities; they are greedy, especially for gold and jewelry.
Goblins actually go back much farther than the Middle Ages and appeared in many parts of the world including the Middle East. The following article introduces some of the different versions of Goblins. One of those is the Bogey which is where the common tale of the “Boogey Man” originated. Great article w/pics here about Goblins
Like ghouls, goblins are malicious, though perhaps not as nightmarish as the flesh eaters above. Agoblin is a “grotesque sprite or elf.” Goblins can be mischievous. They can also assume human and animal form and assail people. Goblin comes from the German kobold. In German folklore, a kobold was a mischievous household spirit. Sometimes the kobold is helpful and sings to children. But too often, he hides valuable household items, kicks people, and erupts in rage when he doesn’t get enough food. Source
As we saw with Ghosts, Goblins are not at all what we think. If you have studied the days of Noah and the Nephilim, you know that way back then the demons were messing with DNA. Not only were they having intercourse with humans, they were mixing the DNA of all species. So, demon and human DNA mixed with animals, insects, and fish. Do you get the picture? Forming hybrids of all kinds. Perversion at its utmost. This is how these creatures came to be. The scientists unwittingly confirm that. Take a look at this next article.
The Reality of Devils and Goblins and Fairies (Scientific explanation , document)
Please pause here and read of an encounter I had with a worker who was seeing Ghosts. There is also info on Slender man, images of REAL Goblins and stories of encounters with them in Africa, and info about the “Black Eyed Children”. That can be seen here on this website.
