Satanism requires no cult initiation

Satanism requires no cult initiation

(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.

Ningishzida Tree god of Vegetation and agriculture, Not Satan.

Ningishzida Lord of the good Tree Not Satan.

9522676

Ningišzida (god)

A male deity of the town of Gišbanda, which lies upstream from Ur. Ningišzida is connected with vegetation and the underworld.

Functions

Ningišzida, like his father Ninazu, is a chthonic TT  deity associated with vegetation, growth and decay, snakes and demons. Ningišzida’s name, and those of his courtiers (see below) reflect this connection, while descriptions of him include: “Lord of pastures and fields” and “like fresh grass” (Wiggerman 1998-2001b). The ‘tree’ of his name has been suggested to be the vine, and in Ur III texts Ningišzida is associated with the é-ĝeštin, the “wine-house” (Sallaberger 1993: 125, 368), elsewhere with the beer-god Siriš, and beer-goddess Nin-kasi. Furthermore, he is the “lord of the innkeepers” (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 370).

Associated with his role in agriculture, Ningišzida is said to travel to the underworld at the time of the death of vegetation (in Mesopotamia – mid-summer to mid-winter). This journey is recorded in both Sumerian and Akkadian myths (Ningišzida’s Journey to the NetherworldETCSL 1.7.3 and Lambert 1990: 293). In the Adapa legend, Ningišzida, under the name Gišzida, is one of the two deities who are said to have disappeared from the land (Foster 2005: 525-30).

Ningišzida’s chthonic nature is reflected in his title (giš)gu-za-lá-kur-ra, “the chair-bearer of the netherworld”, and together with Pedu, the chief netherworld gate-keeper, he stands at the entrance to the underworld. In Ur III and Old Babylonian (early second millennium BCE) periods Ningišzida appears in rituals associated with royal laments (e.g., The Death of Ur-NammaETCSL 2.4.1.1: 118). In Neo Assyrian times (early 1st millennium BCE) he is associated with the punishment, pestilence and disease, and occasionally called “Lord of the netherworld” (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 371). Ningišzida appears in incantations, but only in connection to vegetation, or as a netherworld deity, or (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 369).

Ningišzida, like his father, is associated with dragons, the mušhuššu and balm. He is also referred to as a snake, e.g. muš-mah (A balbale to NingišzidaETCSL 4.19.1: 2), and as such he is associated the Hydra constellation in the astrological compendium MUL-Apin. Also like his father, Ningišzida is titiled warrior, and he is the military governor of Ur (Frayne 1990: 196). In the god list An = Anum he is dgúd-me-lám “warrior of splendor”, and his symbol is the sickle sword (pāštu) (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 370-1).

The conception of Ningišzida as a reliable god is obvious from his name. He is involved with law in the underworld and on earth (Wiggermann 1998-2001: 371). The element “Ningišzida is judge” appears in the personal names of the Neo-Babylonian period (mid 1st millennium BCE) (Figulla and Gadd 1949: 38).

Divine Genealogy and Syncretisms

Ningišzida is the son of Ninazu and his wife, Ningirida. In Gudea Cylinder B (ETCSL 2.1.7: 1342), Ningišzida is described as the “progeny of An“, supposing a sequence An – Enlil – Ninazu – Ningišzida. The god list An = Anum lists two sisters: dama-TÙR-ma and dla-bar-TÙR-ma. In most Old Babylonian and later attestations, the wife of Ningišzida is Ninazimua, “The lady who lets the good juice grow” (Enki and NinhursagaETCSL 1.1.1: 278), while at Lagaš, his wife is Geštinanna (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 369).

Cult Places

As mentioned above, his home was the town Gišbanda (itself an epithet of Ningišzida), which was located upstream from Ur, near to Ki’abrig. Ningišzida’s temple in this town was called kur-a-še-er-ra-ka, “mountain of lament”. When his cult was discontinued it was possibly moved to Ur (see above), where he had a shrine in the temple of Nanna and his own temple, the “House of Justice” (é-níg-gi-na) (Frayne 1990: 196). Other centres of worship of Ningišzida include Ešnunna (modern Tell Asmar, northeast of Baghdad), his father’s cult centre; Lagaš, where he was Gudea’s personal god, and who built Ningišzida a new temple, with dedicated statues. Other cults may have existed at IsinLarsaBabylon and Uruk (Wiggermann 1998-2001b).

Time Periods Attested

Ningišzida makes his first appearance in the Fara god list from the Early Dynastic III period (2600-2350 BCE), and is recorded through the first millennium, e.g. in late Neo-Babylonian personal names (see above). Venerated at Girsu at the time of Gudea and into the Ur III period, Ningišzida received offerings at Puzriš-Dagan (the administrative hub of the Ur III period located near Nippur) and during this period there was a festival of Ningišzida in the third month of the year (Sallaberger 1993: 281 ff.). At the end of the Ur III period his cult at the town of Gišbanda was discontinued, and possibly moved to Ur (Frayne 1990: 196). There is only limited evidence, however, for Ningišzida during the Old Babylonian period, and there are very few attestations as a theophoric element in personal names of the third and second millennia (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 373).

Iconography

Iconography of Ningišzida with snakes is attested on Ur III cylinder seals (Fischer 1997: 175 n.14, 135 n.219), and with mušhuššu dragons growing out of his shoulders, e.g., on Gudea’s seal (van Buren 1934: 72 Fig. 1).

Name and Spellings

The deity’s name is usually understood to mean “Lord of the true/reliable/right tree” (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 368). His name is usually spelled dnin-giš-zi-da, but the /da/ is occasionally omitted. Syllabic spellings suggest a pronunciation of Niggissida or Nikkissida. The Emesal TT  name is Umun-muzzida. Other associated epithets include dgiš-bàn-da, “Little Tree” (Wiggermann 1998-2001b: 368-73).

Written forms:
dnin-giš-zi-da, dni-gi-si-da, dnin-ki-zi-da
Normalized forms:
Ningišzida, Ningizzida, Umunmuzzida, Niggissida, Nikkissida

Satan as defined in academia via the Oxford dictionary is as follows.

Satan

 Adversary,accuser,enemy of god

PROPER NOUN

  • The Devil; Lucifer.

Origin

Old English, via late Latin and Greek from Hebrew śāṭān, literally ‘adversary’, from śāṭan ‘plot against’.

In no place in the above article is the lesser god Ningišzida described as Satan by academic definition.
NinGiszida is not an adversarial deity thus he is not a proper representation of Satan under the religion known as Theistic Satanism.
However a dragon named Tiamat does hold up to academic definition of Satan and is the creator of all things making her a valid  Adversarial deity recognized by the religion Theistic Satanism

Battle for the kingdom

                           The battle for the kingdom
By Reverend Robert Fraize
From Satans bible


 

10

Many of you have read and heard the stories about the battle in heaven between “God” and the “Devil”. What many of you have heard and read is the corrupted version of the story, and is not what happened or what will take place in the future.

Before I begin the story, we must fully understand who God and the Devil truly are. God is the creator, and is not a name of a single being. Also, the Devil or Satan are not names, they are titles. The adversary and the accuser, Satan represents rebellion, and in times of tyranny, Satan awakens to spark revolution.

The God of the Bible is not a loving God, nor does this God truly care about any of you. “God “ is a narcissistic serial killer, who according to the Bible, is responsible for everything in our lives, including rape, murder, incest, child-abuse, famine, sickness ,aids, cancer, and natural disasters.

We are supposed to thank God for each of his horrible acts against humanity, and we are supposed to fear him. Reading more and more about this God of the Bible, it seems to me that he is the spiritual threat against humanity, not Satan.

Satan is described in the bible as the enemy of man, the great deceiver and the rebel angel. In the Bible, Satan is responsible for less than 10 deaths, and these deaths were all God’s will. God commanded Satan to kill, and Satan got sick of God’s attitude towards man and the earth. Satan conversed with many of the angels, and they agreed that God was out of control, and that something had to be done.

Satan collected the strongest of the angels, and created the strongest army ever to be created. The generals of the army all gathered, while God was amusing himself by flooding the world and killing every creature in it. The angels knew that they had only one chance to save the world and all that lived in it, and they knew that their mission was going to be a very difficult one.

After God destroyed the world, he began having sex with the human slaves. After each slave was raped, God decided to kill them and eat their flesh. Satan was watching God commit these horrible acts, and saw God getting tired. This was the moment that Satan was waiting for, so he ordered his army to attack. Satan smashed the gates of God’s kingdom and began slaying heaven’s guards.Satan’s army was not as big as the guardians of heaven, but they had a mission that they had to complete. The rebel army destroyed the first wave of Heaven’s guards and only suffered a few casualties. The gates to heaven have been smashed and the walls began to crumble, as Satan’s army advanced, leaving a river of blood behind them.

The first mission was for Satan to capture the Holy Grail, and to drink from it, making himself immortal. The grail was kept in a lower dwelling of God’s castle, and it was guarded by Gabriel. Satan wanted to complete this mission on his own, to prove to himself that he had the qualities of a true leader.

When Satan and his army arrived at God’s castle, the arch-angel Michael sounded the trumpet to alert God and his guards that Satan was approaching.Satan told his Army to stand strong and guard him, while he entered the lower dwelling of the castle, so that he could complete his first mission.

When Satan entered the castle, he was greeted by two of God’s most-strongest guards. Satan fought using his sword that he dipped into oil and lit on fire. The glow of his blade lit up the room, causing the guards to back off and attempt to retreat. Satan knew that if the guards retreated, that they would return and potentially hinder his mission. As the guards turned and began to flee, Satan chased them down and with one powerful circular motion, he decapitated both guards. Satan felt thirsty and needed to regain his energy, so he smashed open the skulls of his enemies, and ate their brains and drank the blood from their skulls.

After Satan regained his strength, he walked down some stairs to the bottom of the castle, and Gabriel was there waiting for him. Gabriel said to Satan, “Why have you turned on your master? Without your master, you would not exist and you should repent and bow down to your God and beg for his forgiveness.”

Satan laughed at Gabriel and said, “The time has come for us to destroy our masters, we

will not be slaves to a god who created us, only for his own amusement. I am the strongest of all of his creations, and I have the power to liberate the sheep that he has created only to rape and murder. I am not God, and I am not a master. What I am is eternal, and when I kill you, I shall be forever the Adversary against mankind’s tyrant leaders!”

Gabriel warned Satan that if he were to come any closer, that he would be destroyed by the sword that God himself created to win any battle. Gabriel continued to talk to Satan, telling him that he is in a battle that he cannot and will not win.

As soon as Gabriel stopped talking, Satan smiled and let out a loud roar and began his attack. With his first strike, he cut off one of Gabriel’s wings. The blood began to spray all over the room, and Satan tasted Gabriel’s blood for the first time. Gabriel began to recover and quickly raised his shield. preventing a fatal head wound. Quickly, Gabriel lunged forward and stabbed Satan in his leg.Satan stumbled back and felt the pain, he looked down to his wound and smiled with pleasure and told Gabriel “Without pain, I would not know pleasure, and your master has caused enough pain to cause my whole army to organism for a thousand years!”

Satan stood back up with sadistic intent, and charged at Gabriel. Satan grabbed him by his neck and slammed him against a wall with such strong force that Gabriel’s head smashed against the wall, cracking his skull. Gabriel dropped his sword and Satan smiled, Gabriel knew that he was about to be slain and told Satan that he could never defeat God. Satan spit venom onto Gabriel’s eyes and chopped off his other wing, before decapitating him.

Satan defeated his enemy and stole the Holy Grail, he then poured the blood of his enemy into the cup. The blood began to glow and the grail was activated, only the blood of Gabriel could activate the grail, so that it could be used to grant eternal life. Satan drank from the grail and became immortal, even if the flesh of Satan is destroyed, he will live on as chaos energy in its most pure form.

After Satan ascended from the bottom dwelling of the castle, he saw that most of his army was laying dying at the hands of the archangel Michael, and his sheepish guards. Satan told one of his generals to let each of the fallen taste the blood from the grail, and that it will make them immortal.

Satan created a diversion and got the attention of Michael and his guards, while Satan’s general quickly attended to the wounded and dying. Satan stood strong by himself and decapitated many of Michael’s guards setting fire to their corpses, heaven began to look like a waste land.

Satan’s army consumed the blood from the grail and marched forward, destroying all who challenged them. All that stood between Satan and God was the archangel Michael, he retreated to the nineteenth tower on the north side of heaven was consumed in flames and began to crumble from the inside, and slowly it burnt into a hollow shell. God began to get very angry, because Satan destroyed his temple and most of his servants. God yelled to Michael and told him that he must defeat Satan and that when he did, that he must cast Satan and his army down to the earth to be imprisoned for eternity.

The archangel Michael told God that he could not defeat Satan’s whole army on his own. God yelled out to Satan to make a deal. God told Satan, “Satan, I God, ask you to face my archangel Michael one-on-one, none of my remaining servants will

interfere, and I ask your soldiers to stand down and allow just the two of you to battle. If you, Satan, win I will come down from my tower and surrender to you, but if you lose, you and your army will be sent to the earth to live among man for all eternity.”

Satan accepted the deal and met the archangel Michael in the castle garden for one last battle. The two fought in the most epic battle of all time, the battle itself lasted for two days, the archangel Michael began to suffer from extreme fatigue and could no longer lift his blade. Meanwhile, Satan stood strong with no apparent fatigue, this is because Satan had drunk from the Holy Grail and along with eternal life, he was also granted great strength.

The archangel looked at Satan and admitted defeat, he could no longer continue the battle. He begged Satan to execute him, but Satan refused and laid his sword down. Satan told his enemy that he loved him like a brother and reminded him that they were both created of the same flesh. Satan offered the archangel, Michael, his hand and asked him to join him on his mission to destroy the tyrant God. The archangel accepted and embraced Satan’s hand, Satan’s army cheered as they saw this, but suddenly God slayed Michael, decapitating him. Satan got very angry and commanded his army to capture God. A great number of Satan’s army departed from their flesh in the battle, but remained as pure energy, and this energy gathered and restrained God.

Satan walked over to God and looked him in the eye and made his final judgment. Satan said, “God, you are guilty of all of your own sins that you tell your creations to follow. You, God, are a hypocrite, you are a rapist, you are a murderer, and although you may exist for eternity. I, too, shall exist for eternity and I will cast you out of the kingdom that you have created. Although, I cannot kill you, I will now strip you of all of your powers, except your immortality. You and your servants are now going to be cast down to live among what is left over of your own creations, from the flood that you have created.”

I know that you will deceive man into thinking I am their enemy, but the truth shall always prevail. Each time that you create oppressive societies and wars, your mortal children shall inherit the spirit and the power of what I am, and they shall rise up and destroy you, and this you cannot change. The spirit of the adversary shall walk the earth with your children, and this spirit will destroy you over and over for all of eternity.”

Satan and his army gathered God and his servants, and set them ablaze sending them to the Earth through a portal, and the skies of earth opened up to allow the fiery losers to be cast down and was imprisoned for all eternity.
