Satanism requires no cult initiation

Satanism requires no cult initiation

By Reverend Dr.Robert Fraize

(Originally published at traditionalchurchofsatan.net on April 4, 2016. Revised 922/18)

I would like to take this time to talk about a subject that has been brought up by some ignorant misinformed individuals.

Some people have failed to realize that Satanism is a religion,spiritual movement,philosophy based on individual freedom.
The whole concept of Satanism is self development and empowerment.
regardless if you recognize a deity or not a although I personally do not recognize aesthetic satanist the Satanists goal is not to imitate or seek the acceptance of others.

I have been questioned by some people as to who initiated me and into what “coven”
This question was asked by ignorant pseudo Satanists.
I do feel the need to answer this question because maybe it will help educate people.
I initiated myself at a very young age.
I had designed a ritual based on what I was feeling and my thoughts during meditation.
I held a private Ceremony between myself and My deity this was a spiritual ceremony and would not had been the same if it involved other people.

Later I was Ordained by A Satanic church in Massachusetts that closed
and obtained a ulc ministers license until 2012 when the Church Of Leviathan became a legally recognized church dedicated to Theistic Satanism at which time the board ordained me and gave me the title (Pope)

I do not believe that a Satanist should ever have to conform to the ideology and standards of another man.
and for this reason I myself do not hold initiation ceremonies to initiate people into any organization that I have ever been apart of and I never will.
I however have written rituals for self baptism for Individuals to perform in solitude.
People can say whatever they like about this to discredit me and that is perfectly fine with me but building a relationship with Satan is not done through some bizarre hazing or sexual ritual to benifit the gratification of another human being.

Evocation/Conjuration of the infernal ones By Reverend Fraize

Evocation/Conjuration of the infernal ones

By Reverend Fraize

conjuring-1

These practices were received in the astral world and passed on by the Shadow Man. This knowledge penetrates the membrane between worlds where matters of Spirit meet the Flesh. Demonolatry is not to be treated lightly. Should you choose to summon these entities, they should be given due respect or else suffer the consequences.

Eshatra Visually, Eshatra appears as a reptilian male that stands nine feet tall and is approximately five hundred pounds. His skin is patterned as a reticulated python. He has long hands with long fingers and talon claws. His head resembles that of a human’s with a snout of an alligator. He has three rows of serrated teeth much like a shark. Eshatra’s power evoked will protect people who respect and help Reptiles on Earth. Eshatra expects offerings of raw meat and when called upon only a warm room with light of flame will do. His sigil should be drawn upon a mirror and while holding a snake in one hand you gaze upon it. Place a small offering of raw meat on a clean dish in front of the mirror and chant the following: “Esh-at-ra, Esh-at-ra, I call upon you to protect me from my enemy. Accept this flesh that I have offered you, as a symbolic offering of the soul of my enemy.

Tiamat  As the ancient dragon that represents chaos and creation, summon with caution. She is among the first of Adversarial forces. Her home is Ancient Sumer and Babylon and is drawn to reminders of her Motherland. To call upon Tiamat, draw her sigil and place a dark offering bowl on top of it. The offering bowl should be filled with salt water from the ocean. This bowl represents the Abyss. If you do not have access to the Ocean, spring water and salt is an acceptable substitute. Never use tainted tap water as it would greatly offend our ocean Mother. Chant the following while gazing into the Abyss:

Apollo  is a Greek god widely known for his artistic and musical abilities. He is also tied to prophecy, oracles, healing, plague, disease, poetry, archery, and protection. Apollo accepts offerings of ink or paint. To call upon him, light a green candle and gaze into it. Imagine Apollo playing beautiful music, as he guides your desired wishes, and say aloud: “I call upon Apollo, God of poetry, art and music to lend me his ears, eyes, and mouth, so that He may guide me on creating a masterpiece in the name of Apollo. Let it be done, Hail Apollo!”

Anzu In Sumerian myths, Anzu was a large bird of prey that lived in the realm of the gods. Sometime around 2000 BCE stories arose that he rebelled against them. Anzu represents seeking hidden knowledge. To call upon Anzu, you light three candles of any color and burn pine resin over coal. 24 Gaze into the smoke and visualize the great bird rising from the ashes as a strong spirit with fire burning around him. When see this image, chant out the following: “An-zu An-zu An-zu, I spit on the name of Enlil! He wishes to keep knowledge for hidden from me, rather to share it to benefit everyone! I thank you for your sacrifice and honor and respect you. I come to you and ask you to give me the knowledge of which is seek!” Now close your eyes and meditate without any distraction, slowly breathing through your nose and out of your mouth. Meditate until your questions are answered.

Iblis In the Qur’an, the devil has 2 names. It is thought that Iblis was derived from the Greek diabolos and always used in the 25 singular form as a personal name, usually in the context of a fall from grace. Some scholars have argued that Shaytan, his other name (Arabic), was possibly derived from the root ‘to be far from’ or ‘born with anger,’ and may have been applied as a result of a rebellion. As the story goes that when Allah created man, he told all spirits to bow before him. Iblis refused, claiming he was above humans because he was created out of fire instead of mud. Allah then cast him down for his pride. Thus, Iblis represents rebellion when those in power become corrupt. Iblis can be called to help spawn a rebellion against tyranny. The only offering that Ibis requires is that you show your pride above all others. To call upon Iblis, light a candle and gaze into the flame and chant: “Iblis, great rebellious one, enemy of the tyrant god Allah: I call to you to lend me your strength, so that I can overcome and destroy those that unjustly rule my life. In 26 the name of Shaytan, let it be done. Hail Iblis!”

Amon  is a strong and powerful marquis. He appears as a wolf with the head of a snake spitting fire. He is also known to take a human shape with long sharp wolf teeth. He makes peace among the past and present, as well among friend and foe. Amon can be called to settle arguments among friends and family. To call upon Amon, you must hold a snake in your left hand and gaze into a mirror, with your own hand-drawn sigil dedicated to Amon chanting the following: “Amon, great and powerful marquis: I have been involved in an argument/fight with people who I love, I ask for you to intervene and restore peace, In the name of Amon, let it be done.

Bune Bune is a strong duke. He appears as a dragon with three heads: One head of a dog, the second a griffon, and third of a man. He is known to raise the dead and to gather demons around tombs. Bune enjoys an offering of meat which is left on top of your own hand-drawn sigil. Light your candle and gaze into a scrying mirror or bowl and say the following: “Great duke Bune, I come to you, raise the dead so that I may speak with my loved one again. Hail Bune!”

Gruago Gruago is a powerful king who rules over the swamps of the underworld waste land. He is often described as a massive amphibious beast, and some say that he looks to be a hybrid of a man and a snake. He has the legs of a man and the body of a snake having no arms and his head resembles a cobra. Each of his teeth are fangs loaded with enough venom to kill 28 every creature on earth. Gruago possesses the power of stealth, he is able to sneak into an enemy tribe without warning and kills them all. You may conjure Gruago if you are looking for ways to invade an enemy’s lair. On the eve of the horned moon, you must walk into a swamp, into the sticky mud among the snakes and frogs. Find the thorn-bush and only using your bare hands break five limbs off of the bush by doing this it shows your devotion and determination. Once you have all of the branches, place them upon the mud in the pattern of the pentagram. When the pentagram is complete, light one candle in the center of the star, and gaze into it and chant the following: “Gru-ag-o Gru-ag-o, open your serpent eyes so that you can hear me call your name, slither up through the endless mud out of the abyss and grant me audience. I 29 have come to you to ask you to show me the way into my enemy’s lair, so that I can infiltrate them from the inside. “ After you have spoken the words, close your eyes until you can feel the presence of snakes all around you. Wait until a snake crosses your path, this is when you know that Gruago has heard your wishes. Bury the pentagram and candle in the mud, when you dream, you will receive Gruago’s answers.

Pazuzu Pazuzu is king of the demons of wind, and son of the god Hanbi. He also represented the south-western wind, the bearer of storms and drought. Pazuzu was said to be invoked in amulets, which combat the powers of his rival, the malicious goddess Lamashtu, who was believed to cause harm to mother and child during childbirth. Although Pazuzu is, himself, an evil spirit, he drives away other evil spirits, therefore protecting humans against plagues and misfortunes. To conjure 30 Pazuzu, light charcoal and sprinkle candle wood on it as an offering. Draw a Sigil of Pazuzu on a small mirror and place candles around it. Say aloud: “Pazuzu, Great Demon of the wind, I call upon you to protect me and my loved ones.”

Lucifer The name Lucifer, means ‘day star,’ or ‘sun of the morning.’ It is believed that Lucifer is also another name for Satan. Christians have made Lucifer into a demon or devil, and this is one of their many lies. The fact is, Lucifer is the sun of the morning or the light-bearer and represents enlightenment. To conjure Lucifer, sit in a dark room and light a blue flame. Sterno is suitable for this task. Draw a sigil and gaze into the blue flame and say aloud: “Lucifer, god of Enlightenment, come to me and show me the errors of my ways wash 31 away my ignorance with the eternal flame of enlightenment”.

/Hekate, is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding two torches or a key. She was associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, and gateways. She has knowledge of herbs, necromancy, and sorcery. To conjure Hecate, sit by a river under a full moon and burn roses. Offer the roses to Hecate and say the following: “Great goddess Hecate, I call to you to open the doors that have been shut in my life, I seek your guidance”

The Greek god Saturn aka the cowardly farmer

The Greek god Saturn aka the cowardly farmer
By
Reverend.Dr.Robert Fraize

God-Saturn-Photo

Recently I was made aware that there are people practicing “black magic” who recognize the greek god Saturn as their patron deity.
I really never thought of Saturn as a powerful deity that would help or protect a magician because it is really not part of his attributes.
But without going into a rhetorical rant I am going to educate people about who this god really is.
Below are excerpts from an article posted by  Donald wasson and published on the website Ancient Eu click the link for the full article

Saturn (Saturnus) was a Roman god with a similar history to Cronus from Greek mythology. Often depicted in art wielding a scythe he was considered an agricultural god, especially associated with seed-corn. The Saturnalia festival, named after him, was one of the most important and lively events in the Roman calendar and the god also had a major temple dedicated to him in the Roman Forum of Rome.”

Clearly this “god” was a god of Agriculture he was basically a farmer I see nothing “dark” or magical about him maybe if you consider growing corn magical but no I do not see it.

Let’s look at his Greek origins

“GREEK ORIGINS

Greek and Roman mythology are interwoven, and to many, they appear to be one and the same. While the names of the gods and goddesses may be different – Zeus morphed into Jupiter while Hades became Pluto – their diverse roles and positions in society are fairly consistent. From the time the Romans first made contact with the Greeks, their society would never be the same,  becoming Hellenized, albeit reluctantly. The Romans admired all that was Greek. The wealthiest and most powerful families of Rome would even hire Greek tutors for their male children. The Republic’s (and later Roman Empire’s) literature, art, philosophy and foremost, religion would be changed forever. One of the best and earliest examples of this religious transformation would revolve around an outcast – a god driven out of Greece but finding a home on the hills of Rome. His name was Saturn.

Some authors believe Saturn existed in Roman mythology long before the “invasion” of Greek religion and associate him with the Etruscan god Satre; however, whether this is true or not is entirely speculative. As the Greek religion became more Romanized, Saturn or Saturnus, often pictured holding a scythe, became more closely associated with the Greek god Cronus, the lord of the universe and the god who devoured his own children. He was son of Uranus (sky) and Gaea (earth). After Zeus and his brothers (Poseidon and Hades) became victorious over the Titans, Saturn was expelled from the home of the Greek gods, Mt. Olympus. ”

Ok so he ate his own children that’s pretty fucked up and vile but this is where the coward part comes in.
the story of Cronus/Saturn seizes power, castrating , overthrowing  and killing  his father Uranus.  it was  then foretold that one day a Powerful son of Saturn would do the same and overthrow him, thus  Saturn devoured all of his children when they were born to prevent this from occurring.
So to break it down Saturn was so afraid that his bad deceitful deeds would eventually reverse onto him  that he had to kill his own babies.
only a coward with such fear would resort to such cowardly deeds.

In conclusion Saturn is definitely not a powerful deity and not a demon or Devil he is just a cowardly farmer who was a traitor to his own kin.
No true Satanist/demonologist would ever consider appointing Saturn as their patron deity Unless they have been misinformed about who he is by bullshit modern occult authors.
It is a shame to see so many young people fall victim to the edgy authors of today.
so before you decided to dedicate yourself to a deity Please do your historical research do not follow the pen of a fraud.

Playing both sides of the fence working with angels and demons?

Playing both sides of the fence working with angels and demons?
764791_angels-vs-demons-war_1440x1080_h

This article is not an attack on anyone but the opinions of the author.
Recently there has been a trend among online Satanic/occult community
Practitioners are allegedly working with both “demons” and angels” and although I do not recognize demons and angels as people who follow the religions of abraham I will entertain the idea of their existence for the sake of this article.

Anyone who knows about angels and demons knows that they are polar opposites  representing “good” “evil”
In order to work with an entity you must be loyal to this entity how can you be loyal to an angel while working with a demon and how can you be loyal to a demon while working with an angel?
On top of it all claiming to be a Satanist yet working with angels seems totally absurd.
and lets pretend for a moment that this is going on and that Satanists are doing this.
What do you think is going to happen to the person working both sides of the fence?
We seen this go on among drug dealers working for gangs going back and forth to the crips and the bloods what happens in 98 percent of these situations? that’s right the person ends up DEAD.
Loyalty is most important above all things and when you work and or side with the enemy of another being you are disloyal and a traitor this marks you as an enemy of both sides.

Not only is it dangerous to play both sides but it is stupid you will never atain your deceitful goals and you risk your wellbeing and all those around you do not be stupid and do not attempt to play both sides this has been a p.s.a by your favorit reverend

Satan The Dragon Tiamat Theistic Satanism

 Satan The Dragon Tiamat Theistic Satanism

Tiamat (goddess)

Tiamat is a personification of the primordial sea from which the gods were first created. She is also the main adversary of Marduk in the Enūma Eliš TT .

Functions

Tiamat’s exact functions as a goddess are difficult to establish. As her name indicates (see below), she was a deification of the primordial sea. Our best source of information for Tiamat is the myth Enūma Eliš TT , and in fact, there are only a handful of references to her outside of it. Enūma Eliš TT  begins with a description of the two primeval seas, the salt sea Tiamat and the sweet sea Abzu TT , mingling their waters together to create the gods (for recent translations of the story see Foster 2005: 436-486 and Lambert 2013). In the following battle between Abzu TT  and Ea, Tiamat attempts to appease Abzu TT  and stop the conflict. But when she is later pressured by the lower gods to revenge him, she herself becomes the main antagonist of the story, creating an army of monsters led by her new consort, Qingu. She is ultimately defeated by Marduk, who incapacitates her with his “Evil Wind” and then kills her with an arrow. Marduk splits her in two, creating heaven and earth from her body, the Tigris and Euphrates from her eyes, mist from her spittle, mountains from her breasts and so on. Throughout the epic, there are differing descriptions of Tiamat: she appears both as a body of water, as a human figure, and as having a tail (Tablet V, line 59). These varying descriptions are ultimately reconciled as Marduk turns her limbs into geographical features.

Divine Genealogy and Syncretisms

In Enūma Eliš TT , Tiamat is the mother of all the gods (Tablet I, line 4). Together with Abzu TT  she creates Lahmu and Lahamu, who in turn beget Anšar and Kišar.

Though one cannot point to a syncretism as such, there are several models for Tiamat in the earlier mythology. Katz (2011: 18f) argues that the figure of Tiamat unites two strands of tradition attached to the sea. The first is the motherly figure of Namma, who is also referred to as a primeval ocean from which the gods were created. The other is the figure of the sea as a monstrous adversary, like the Levantine god Yamm (see also Jacobsen 1968: 107). Another important influence for the figure of Tiamat is Anzu, a mythical bird defeated by Ninurta, indeed the battle between Marduk and Tiamat has a number of parallels to the battle between Ninurta and Anzu (Lambert 1986).

Cult Place(s)

There was no cult dedicated directly to Tiamat, but the battle between Tiamat and Marduk played an important role in the New Year’s festival TT  in Babylon. The Enūma Eliš TT  was recited on its fourth day, and some argue that the festival included a symbolic reenactment of the mythological battle (see the discussion in Lambert 2013: 461f).

Time Periods Attested

The oldest attestation of Tiamat is an Old Akkadian incantation (Westenholz 1974: 102), though there are few other references to her until the first millenium BCE (see Lambert 2013: 237). After the composition of the Enūma Eliš TT , Tiamat is found in a number of theological commentary works, but most of these seem to rely on the epic (e.g. SAA 3.39, r. 1-3). Tiamat is also mentioned by Berossus, writing in the 3rd century BCE (Breucker 2011: 648f).

Iconography

A relief from the temple of Bêl in Palmyra depicts Nabu and Marduk slaying Tiamat, who is shown with a woman’s body and legs made of snakes (Dirven 1997). However, this scene is a late Hellenistic adoption of the Babylonian motif, and no Mesopotamian image has been positively identified as a representation of Tiamat. A string of identifications (Yadin 1971Grafman 1972Kaplan_1976) have recently been rejected (George_2012), and until new evidence surfaces they remain dubious.

Name and Spellings

The name Tiamat is uncontracted form of the word tâmtu, meaning “sea”. The long vowel â is contracted from the short vowels i and a. The word is in the “absolute state,” a noun form that is equivalent to the vocative (a grammatical case which directly invokes or addresses a person or deity; literally the name means “O, sea!”).

Written forms: dti-amat, ti-amat, dtam-tum, ti-àm-tim, ta-à-wa-ti

Normalised forms: Tiamat, Tiāmat, Tiʼamat, Thalatta (Greek).

According to Academic scholars Tiamat was the first representation of a Dragon creator and the adversary of the solar deity Marduk making her the first Adversarial Deity.
In ancient times people did not Worship our Mother because they had became corrupted by Marduk and his cult followers into believing she was evil.
But we must not forget it was Marduk not Tiamat who created humans to become the slaves of the god’s
In the Days leading to the great war between the dragon and the solar deity Humans did not exist our lives at no time where ever in danger by the creator.
The Traditional Church of Satan recognizes Tiamat as Satan but recognizes the individuals rights to choose which ever adversarial deity that they chose to recognize or not recognize. Our church believes in the importance of developing your own relationship with the deity that comes to you during meditation.

Sigil magic how to draw a sigil

Sigil magic how to draw a sigil

Sigil Magic Dabblers in the occult may  that think a sigil is just a fancy symbol.
The Satanic Magician knows that a sigil symbolizes a spirit
or demon and is used during conjuration.

A sigil is focusing tool allowing the magician to focus his  or her own energy with that of a demon or spirit.
It is key that the Satanic Magician
uses his own hand-made sigil’s and doesn’t copy those used by other magicians By doing so this corrupts the flow of energy between the entity to be conjured and the magician.

While viewing the sigils of other magicians may offer inspiration, copying them is a poor emanation of powerful magic.

Sigils can be made many different ways.
Using ink and paper is a longtime
tradition of Occultists. Universally,the circle or
continuum (not to be confused with a circle of protection)is intuitively a tried and true method. This circle keeps your mind focused on the sigil itself and directs your energy straight into the

sigil.
After the circle
is drawn, the magician will then draw the sigil itself.
Many traditional magicians
will use the first,middle, and last letter of the demons name and without lifting their hand off the paper, they will write the letters into a secretive symbol that only the magician understands.

Clay sigils are the most ancient form of sigil used for magic purposes as it takes directly from the Earth.

The clay can be and is encouraged to be mixed with your own offerings or symbolic items that may represent a demon or spirit or a particular spell that you the demon to work with you on.

Taking the clay from specific locations adds to the precision of spell work.

Recommended additives are gem stones, herbs, bone, hair, or any personal item that you intuit will bring more energy to your conjuration.

Mold the clay into a circle and with Dove’s Blood; draw the sigil into the clay.

Aesthetic concerns needn’t a bother; the sigil itself is only seen by you and the conjured entity. As a strong, thinking individual, the

sigil is always satisfactory. After the ritual, burn the sigil or bury it.

Rule of thumb: If you feel the magic worked,

bury it. If you feel it needs improvement, burn it

Belial the false demon of Jewish magic.

From the desk  of the leader of theistic Satanism Reverend Dr Robert Fraize
Belial the false demon of Jewish magic.

occultpokeball-copy3

Before I go into this topic I would like to say that what I am about to write may be looked down on by many so called occultists.
This article is not intended as an attack or trolling article but I can not sit back and just allow people to spread disinformation.
I do understand many people in the occult are ignorant to these so called demons origins and they can choose to take this article serious or just disregard it.

Like many demons of the goetia Belial was not even a physical being or a being at all.
The term belial (בְלִיַּעַל bĕli-yaal) is a Hebrew adjective meaning “worthless”
The etymology of the word is traditionally understood as “lacking worth”
from two common words: beli- (בְּלִי “without-“) and ya’al ( יָעַל “value”).
Belial is worth less and with out value? that does seem about right when it comes to those who worship or work with the alleged demon.
maybe because they are not even working with a real entity and their energy is being tossed to something else but what?
The word occurs twenty-seven times in the Masoretic Text, in verses such as Proverbs 6:12, where the King James Version (KJV) translates the Hebrew phrase adam beli-yaal as “a naughty person.
I could be wrong but since when was a naughty person a powerful demon?
it seems absurd to me to perform rituals directed towards and honoring a naughty person.
I was reading some material on the net and saw that in the Hebrew text the phrase is either “sons of Belial” or simply “sons of worthlessness.
Again with this worthless nonsense I guess you are what you worship.
“Belial” is applied to  those of Benjamin who committed the sex crime at Gibeah.
Sex crimes? oh my what are these silly occultists really up to who ask you to worship and honor Belial and include sexual energy?

In conclusion Belial is not a demon but a word meaning worthless or vile and this description could fit many so called Jewish demons or even people so when you work with this “word” as I view it for what it is you are not working with an actual demon realize that you are  being used by a selfish occultists who wishes to harness your energy for their own need.
thanks for reading.
