The Mark of the Beast
by Roy Francois
1/19/2018 / Bible Studies
One of the Occult World's Weapons of Mass Destruction
“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." [Rev 19:20] KJV
There are many theories as to what really is "The MARK OF THE BEAST." One such theory is that people will be forced to have an electronic device implanted under the skin as a tracking mechanism. There are many other similar ideas as to what this mark is, they can't all be right. Jesus said once you receive this mark in the right hand or the forehead, you will not be forgiven for it. So, it’s important that we identify the true mark of the beast. To do this we need to let the Word of God identify this devil mark, and not man-made theories.
First, the "MARK OF THE BEAST" is not something that can be forced on you. It is something that you welcome into your being; it’s the spirit of Satan himself! This I intend to prove through scripture, from the Lord himself, "JESUS CHRIST." Jesus said that there’s only one sin that shall never be forgiven in this world or the next, and that’s "BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT." Let’s see what Jesus had to say on this most vital subject:
"And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth out devils. And He called out to them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, how can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be dived against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand. But hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first binds the strong man; and then he will destroy his house. VERILY I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: “BECAUSE THEY SAID, HE HATH AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT." [Mark 3:22-30.] KJV
There it is, right there, that’s the unforgivable sin! "BECAUSE THEY SAID HE HATH AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT." The unforgivable sin is attributing the works of the Lord to Satan! Saying that the Spirit that indwells Christ [THE HOLY SPIRIT] is Satan himself. Saying that Satan that file, filthy, disgusting, lying, hater of mankind spirit is God. Do you see the seriousness of this crime? This is treason of the highest order! The Lord Jesus said that this is the only sin for which men shall never be forgiven.
Then in Revelation He said that one who receives the mark of the beast will never be forgiven. It would appear that there are two unforgivable sins, but that cannot be, because then Jesus would be contradicting Himself and he just cannot do that. Let’s see what He says about the one that receive the mark of the beast:
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worships the beast and his image, and receive his [so the mark can't be forced on him] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascenedeth up for ever and ever.” [Rev. 14:9-11.] KJV
Since there can be only one unforgivable sin according to Jesus, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, and "THE MARK OF THE BEAST’ would have to be one and the same. It’s not just, not believing the gospel, because men have dogged the gospel and been forgiven and in the end preached the very gospel they once fought against. As did St. Paul, and many others, no it was because they said that God is evil, and Satan is good.
So, is that religion of hatred toward Jesus and the Holy Spirit of God with us today? According the Lord, it is with us, and will capture the hearts and souls of more and more people and in the end, the whole world is under its spell. So, we need to identify this religion and expose it. Before we can expose this religion of Satan we must identify it. One of the major identifying marks is its hatred of the God of Heaven, and His Son whom He sent to this world to save it. Is there a religion that don’t just not believe, but actually hate Jesus and Jehovah? Yes!
The same apostate Jews [not all Jews], that hated Jesus and set out to destroy Him are still being used by Satan today. Let’s look into the so-called holy books of these apostates, and see if they truly hate the God of the Bible.
THE JEWISH TALMUD
When one says the words Jewish Talmud, the first thing that come into most Christians’ minds is it’s a holy book. If you ask them what’s in it they have no idea, except that it’s a Jewish holy book and we must respect it. But in fact, it’s a very unholy book, it, along with the Kabbalah are leading the world toward full hatred of Jesus. These Jewish books, the Talmud and the Kabbalah, are the primary forces behind the hatred of God.
What the Talmud Really Says about Jesus:
I can hear the cries now, anti-Semitism, if telling the truth is anti-Semitism, then you would have to say was Jesus was anti-Semitic. He Himself condemned the Jewish high priest and the scribes. He said they were of their father "Satan." And will do the will the work of their father. And that’s what they are doing. I find it very disturbing that it’s alright to call out evil men of other races, but when you bring out the evils of certain one of the Jews, the cry is always anti-Semitism. There are evil men in all races, the Jews are no exception, and they are fallen men like everyone else. I don’t hate Jews, but an apostate Jew is just as bad as an apostate of any other race. An apostate is an apostate period. These apostates Jews who opposed the Lord and had Him killed were controlled by Satan. This Satanic spirit has been passed down from generation to generation. The Cabbalist calls it the oral tradition. Here’s what their holy book the Talmud says of the Jesus of scripture:
Jesus is referred to as the son of Pandira, a soldier. His mother a prostitute. Sanhedrin 67a.
How’s that for hatred of the Holy Spirit that indwells Jesus Christ?
His birth was illegitimate and conceived during menstruation. Mother a prostitute. Kallah 1b. (18b).
What clearer evidences do you need, to decide the mark of the Beast?
Judas and Jesus are engaged in a quarrel in human excrement. Toldoth Jeschu.
Jesus died like a beast and buried in animal’s dung heat. Zoha III (282).
This is just a few statements from to teaching of the Talmud, there is many more disgusting statements directed at
Jesus, The Holy Spirit, and Christians. This filthy disgusting attack come not from the Pagan Romans or the Pagan Greek as one might expect, no this is from Jesus own people, the Jews! Now can you begin to understand why such an offense is unforgivable? This is treason of the highest order.
You are seeing the true "THE TRUE MARK OF THE BEAST" here, the unforgivable sin. Next time someone tells you the Talmud is a holy book, stop and consider what’s in it. The Talmud is their laws and beliefs, but their other book is the one that leads you into the initiation of the beast, the mark in the forehead. "IT’S CALLED THE KABBALAH."
THE SATANIC KABBALAH!
There are variations in spelling: Kabbalah, Cabala, Cabbalah, Qabal, etc. no matter the spelling, it’s all straight from the PIT OF HELL!
"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of this world, and not according to Christ." [Colo. 2:8-9].
The Talmud and the Kabbalah go hand in hand; they are both from the same source; Satan and the apostate Jews that hated Jesus and the Holy Spirit. "THE AIM OF THE KABBALAH IS TO MARK YOU IN THE FOREHEAD WITH THE MARK OF THE BEAST." Remember, once you have been so marked, all hope is gone, there’s no forgiveness for this act of high treason. So, whatever you do, DO NOT ALLOW YOURSLEF TO MARK IN FOREHEAD BY THE HELLISH TEACHINGS OF THE KABBALAH!
"The Kabbalah is a system of Jewish mysticism and magic and is the foundational element in modern witchcraft. Virtually all of the great witches and sorcerers of this century were Cabalist." - William J. Schnoebelen, the Dark Side of Freemasonry."
“Thou shall not suffer a witch to live.” [Exodus 22:18 KJV
See how seriously the bible takes witchcraft? Now I’m not saying that anyone should go out and kill witches, God gave that law to Israel at that time for a particular reason. I just put that verse of scripture in to show what a serious crime against God witchcraft really is.
THE TRUE PURPOSE OF THE KABBALAH
The true goal of the Cabbalist is to introduce you to the worship of Lucifer, aka Satan. The Cabbalist know that most people will not knowingly worship Satan; their goal is to trick you into the worship of their god Lucifer. As people seek the meaning of their existence they sometimes search a lot of different areas for answers. Some come into contact with the Kabbalah, which promise to give them the answers they have been seeking.
But they say this knowledge is hidden form the ordinary person, and is given only to the initiated, once initiated you will learn all the secrets of the universe. Kind of like what the devil said to Eve: "the fruit will make you wise, ye shall be like the gods." that’s the lust, to be like God! The original lust of Lucifer! What they do not tell you, is that once initiated you’ll have the have the mark of the beast, and will develop a hatred for the truth and Jesus. They claim to follow Jesus, actually the never use the name of Jesus; because the Greek meaning of the word is savior, to them Jesus is not the savior, to them their god Lucifer, [Satan] is the savior of mankind. They hate the name of Jesus, "THE MARK OF THE BE
THE THIRD EYE INITIATION, THE TRUE MARK OF THE BEAST!
The third eye of the occult [The Eye of Horus] is said to be centered center in the forehead, and is one of the seven chakras in the charkra system. It is also referred to as the brow chakra, and is claimed to be the most important chakra. It is said that for most of mankind this third eye is closed and needs to be opened. Many people say the third eye is hard to open, thank God for that, maybe that’s God’s way of giving them a chance to really realize what it is they trying to do. But to those who are successful, they can reach the point of no return. I don’t know exactly where in the process that takes place, but according to the word of God when fully implemented its marked permanently and all hope is gone. When this chakra is fully opened it let in all kinds of lying vision, and delusions. I used to experiment with the third eye, I guess I never fully open it, if I had I know for sure I would be not writing this book, I would be hating the thing of Christ Jesus. "THAT IS THE TRUE MARK OF THE BEAST"
THE MEANING OF THE MARK IN THE FOREHEAD
The bible speaks repeatedly of the importance of the mark to the forehead and the spiritual meaning it represents:
"Jehovah said, go through the mist of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that groan and sigh for all the abominations that are done in the mist thereof; and smite; let not your eyes spare; but not go near against any man upon whom is mark." [Ezek. 9:4-6]. KJV
"Behold the Lamb standing on the Mount Zion and with Him a hundred and four thousand, having the name of His Father written on their foreheads." [Rev. 14:1] KJV
"They shall see the face of God and the Lamb, and His name shall be on their foreheads." [Rev. 22:4]. KJV
"It was said that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, nor any tree; but only the men that did not have the mark of God on their foreheads [Rev. 9:4]. KJV
For the Lord to speak that mush about the mark to the forehead, that marked forehead must be of utmost importance. The forehead will either have the mark of God, or "THE MARK OF THE BEAST." That’s why to the occultist, the third eye, [in the center of the forehead] is considered the most important chakra. It is the seat of true love and devotion, either to Jehovah or to Satan. That’s why you see in most eastern religions the worshipers have a mark in the center of the forehead, which is a sign of love and devotion to some deity of theirs. The forehead mark is the most important to have. "THE MARK OF GOD OR THE MARK OF THE BEAST!
"THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN IS THE TRUE MARK OF THE BEAST"
I was indoctrinated into the king Solomon Cult an early age. You may be asking; what is the king Solomon cult? To answer that question, we first need to find out who King Solomon was in the beginning, and who he became later on in life. Who the bible said he was, and who he became. We hear a lot about how wise King Solomon was, and it is true in the beginning he was the wisest man the world had known until that time.
But what we do not hear much about is that the wisest man becomes one the most foolish man to walk the earth. And because of his foolishness, and his disobedience to God, there is a devil worshiping religion attached to his name. A religion that is destroying many souls today. Having gone through it and delivered by God from it, I intent to spend the rest of my life warning people of its detriment to their souls. Since this is such an important issue lets go to the word of God so that we are clear about what happened. The word of God says:
"But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father."
"Solomon when after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hills that is before Jerusalem, and for Moloch, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise, did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD GOD of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A WISE MAN TO YOU?
You see, King Solomon became a devil worshiper, now he may have repented and been forgiven by God, but we don’t know for sure because the bible is silent on this point. Solomon became an occultist, (A belief in spirit contact and bringing those beings under human control). The bible calls it the deep thing of Satan. (Rev.2:24)
"But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatria, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.)
The deep thing of Satan includes things forbidden in the bible, such as seeking messages from the spirit word, consulting a medium (one that speaks with deceiving fallen angels.) The bible condemns seeking contact with the spirit world. Here what the word of God says about it." (Isaiah 8:19)
“And when they shall say unto you, seek unto them that have familiar spirits, (mediums) and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? For the living to the dead?” Leviticus 19:31 KJV
“Do not turn to mediums or necromancer (consulting the dead); do not seek them out, and to make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God."
That’s what the occult is, and what it does, it gets you in contact with the deceiving fallen angels (demons) that pass themselves off as the spirits of the dead. These fallen angels crave contact with mankind, to deceive and destroy you, they hate you. Once you open yourself up to them they will show you all kinds of lying wonders, even to the point of making you believe you are God. It’s a strong delusion; the bible speaks of this delusion and the results of continuing to resist the truth of God’s of word. (1 Tim. 4:1)
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."
The Holy Spirit tries constantly to warn us of these deceiving spirits. But if we continually ignore His warnings there comes a point where He gives them the desires of their hearts. If they are determent to believe the lie, here’s what He says will happen.
For this cause God shall send them strong delusions, that they shall believe a lie. Why dose God allow these strong delusions?" (2 Thess 2:10) KJV
"And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
There it is, He allowed them to be deceived because this is what they want, they don’t want the truth. They hate the truth. They wanted someone to tell them what they wanted to hear, they wanted to hear lies.
Now that we’ve laid some ground work, I’ll now tell you my story and how I got involved in the occult (New age Movement).
I was born into it. I was born and raised in New Orleans La. In the lower 9th ward, I was born into what appeared to be a very religious family. They were so religious that my grandmother decided to start a church (First King Solomon Spiritual Temple.) I must have been about seven or eight years old at the time. She started it in the kitchen of our little shot gun home. They held services there for a little while, and then she decided to convert the car garage into the church.
We would have service ever Sunday and Wednesday, I was always in attendance I never missed service, until I old enough to quit, and I quit did. Everything seemed alright, I thought we were just worshiping the Lord. I was too young to understand what was really going on. As I got older I started noticing things that just didn’t add up, I’m not saying this to hurt anyone in the family or associated with the church.
But I promise God, when He delivered me from drugs, alcohol and the occult, I would spend the rest of my life warning people of the dangers of the occult (New age Movement.) The first thing I notice was that most of the church including myself were practicing alcoholic, fornicators, backbiters, loveless, resentful etc. we were worse than most of the sinner that we were preaching to, we were hypocrites, so I said none of this makes senses, I might as well be the drunk that I am, so that’s what I did I spent most of my life drinking and smoking weed.
What I did not know was that a seed had already been planted in me. A seed of spiritism; you see they were always talking about spirits, the spirit said this and a spirit said that to me. There was always talk of spirit communication, but whomever that spirit was I felt that it was not the Holy Spirit of God. Hearing all this talk about the spirits of the dead at such a young age I became caught up this spirit thing, I was so affected by it that for years I was afraid to be alone in a dark room. When I quit the church, I thought I was finish with all that spirit stuff, I was wrong.
When I turned 18 years old and joined the Marine Corps, again I thought I was finish with all that spirit stuff. But something happened while in the Corps, I got into a bit of trouble because my dysfunctional lifestyle [alcoholism] I was giving office hours, they gave me a reduction in rank and sent me to a combat unit. While waiting my orders to report to my new duty station, they stationed me in a recreational park to guard and keep the grounds. Now this park was so isolated there was no one for miles around but me, at night I could see nothing except for the building I was living in and the grounds I kept, no cars passing by, no people, just dead silences, accept for the little light in area where I lived, there was nothing but darkness and mountains.
I never felt so alone in all my life. It was there that I realize that this spirit communication mess was not over. I started having weird experiences; the first thing I remember is that I could no longer sleep on my back. Every time I would fall asleep on my back I would wake up with a violent jerk, like something or someone was trying to kill me, for about 15 or 20 years it went on like this, if I fell asleep on my side and roll over on my back the same thing would happen, I would wake up with my heart pounding, as if it was about to burst through my chest.
The next thing to happen was that I would hear a whole lot of profanity coming from a group of people, it wasn’t laud it was like wipers, but it was real and I knew it was inside the small building I was living in, but I knew I was the only one there. Could I be losing my mind? I thought, no this is really happening, this went on and on, I had to drink a bottle of Rum every night just to go to sleep, I would be so happy when morning came. I finely got my orders to my new duty, I reported to the combat unit completed my enlistment time and was honorably discharge from the Marines.
When I got back home to New Orleans I continued my same old ways of drinking and drugging. But the problem of not being able to sleep on my back continued. It was getting worst now there was an added dominion to it, instead of the violent awaking, I would get a ringing in my ears, at the same time I would become paralyzed, I would lie there awake struggling to move, and finally I would free myself. This was getting unbearable night in night out, what’s doing on I had to find answers.
I went to the VA hospital they could fine nothing wrong with me. I’m desperate I need answers. At some point, I came into posesion of a book on the occult. I don’t remember the name of that particular book, but it began to describe everything that was happening to me in minute detail. It explained that what was happening to me was nothing to be afraid of. It helped me remember that what I was experiencing didn’t start when I was in the marines, it started right in the house where I was raised, it started around time they started the church (First King Solomon Spiritual Temple.)
Here’s what happened: Around the time they started the church I started having this weird thing happening to me. Every night just before I would fall asleep I would hear a whooshing sound in my ears. The sound would become faster and faster, Lauder and Lauder, as the sound increased, the more I experience paralysis, I had to struggle to move. Finally, after a long struggle, I was able to move, this went on every night, I came to the conclusion that this is death, and that I was going to die at this young age, I prayed and prayed every night for God to please help me. I finally I gave in, I decided that the next time this happened I would not fight it, I would let go and die. I remember throughout the next day, in between playing and having fun, I would remind myself that tonight I’m going to die. I can't fight it any longer. I’M GONNA DIE TONIGHT!
As I laid there saying what I thought would be my last prayer in this life, it began just as in all the other times, but this time I didn’t fight back, would accept death. The sound got Lauder and Lauder, the paralysis set in totally, I could move nothing, I knew I couldn’t move anything even if I tried. Then something happened, there was an explosion inside my head. POW! I said OK now I’m dead, but wait, I’m dead but I can still see everything. As I laid there wandering what to do next, the room filled with beautiful bright shining stars all over sealing, the walls, the furniture, everywhere nothing but beautiful stars. I didn’t know it then, but that was my first Out of Body experience.
Now that the occult had explain what I was experiencing when no one else could, they just had to be right about everything else, but as I would find out later, I was wrong, they mix the truth with lies. I was set up for deception, but I didn’t know it at the time, so I decided I would learn all I could about this occult thing, I would throw myself into it fully. I read and studied everything I could fine on the occult. I was fascinated with astral projection, having already had an outer body experience I want to be able to repeat the experience at will.
As I began to study and practice I became good at it, all kind of things started happening, I started seeing visions, I would hear beautiful music, my night dreams were out of this world. But it was all a set up by Satan to destroy my soul. That's one of the reasons it’s so hard for people to break from occult. You get these experiences of god-like feelings. (Delusions) I became addicted to the occult, it was more addictive than the alcohol, and more addictive than the weed I was smoking. It made me feel like I was God. In fact, that’s what the occult is all about, replacing the God of Heaven with god of self! No matter what name they go by, whether it’s the New Age Movement, New Spirituality, First King Solomon, the Mason, it’s all the same it is Satanic. I was headed for hell.
As time went on I began feel that something wasn’t right, something kept pricking at my soul. Now throughout my whole occult experience I never once stop believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. When my eyes began to open to what I was into, the first thing I notice was that they talk a lot about "the Christ" but this was a strange Christ. This was not the Christ that I had come to love and adore, this was not the Christ of the bible. Then I notice that every time Jesus’ name was mention along with other so-called prophets like Mohammad, Buda, Deli Lima, etc.
His name was never mention first, His name would be like the third or fourth in the list, so to me they were saying that His name was no higher than all the other so-called prophets. Another thing they would not mention was sin, as if there was no such thing as sin, why would they avoid such an important topic? So now since [according to them] there is no sin, there is no need for the blood of Jesus Christ, which washes away the sins of the world. As God began to open my eyes, I began to see that it is not that they just don’t believe, there is deep seated hatred for the Christ of the bible and His True Church.
They can accept any religion except Christianity. But they love to use Christian scripture and twist it to their advantage. Then there were things I start noticing about myself, for all the time and dedication I was putting this, I was still powerless over the sin in my life. Even after all this eye-opening evidence I continued in my occult studies. Then something happened, I was living with lady friend of mine in Los Angeles Ca. Once as we were sitting talking she said, Roy you’ve got my house full of spirits.
This really hit me because by this time I knew this whole occult stuff was about spirit communication and spirit possession. That's right, their number one goal is that you become possessed by some demonic spirit. I could on and on, but I think you get the picture.
By now I’m really thinking, am I on my way to hell, or is it just that I am over analyzing everything? I was trying to find reasons to continue my demonic ways. You see I was just too addicted to the occult and couldn’t let go. I knew that in my own power I could not stop, it would take a power far higher and greater than myself to free me, if this was wrong. I needed help, again I needed answers so I went back to basics, I prayed, it went something like this:
Lord God of Heaven creator of everything my creator, I don’t know what’ right and what’s wrong. Please show me the truth of what I’m involved in, is it from you are not, please show me the truth. Amen!
A VERY SHORT DREAM THAT WOULD CHANGE MY LIFE FOR EVER!
A very simple but sincere prayer. A short time after I prayed I fell off to sleep, I began dreaming, I dreamed I was having dinner and I was really eating it up. Then suddenly I looked down at the plate, on that plate was one of my favorite foods, Rice; we love rice in New Orleans, the rice was perfectly cook. Then I looked again at the plate, sitting on top of that rice was feces, that's right human bodily waste, and I was eating it down. Then I woke form the dream.
As I woke from the dream, stunned that could do such a thing, I could still taste the feces in my mouth. Immediately I knew what the dream meant, there was no trying to understand the meaning, I knew without a doubt what it meant. You see the perfectly cooked rice represented the truth of what the occult is teaching, because there is some truth in some of the things they teach, that’s how they get people caught up in it. (They mix lies in with the truth.)
The feces represented the lies that they mixed in with the truth. And I was sucking it all down, and digesting it. Lord have Mercy! That’s the trick they use, to mix just enough truth in the lies and a twisted miss-use of scripture to gain possession of the poor unsuspecting soul. There’s got to be a hell. Here's what the word of God says about it:
(Rev.20:10) KJV "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and they shall be tormented day and night, for and ever.
REMEMBER WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS OF THE GREAT DECEPTION OF THE LASTS DAYS
(1Tim. 4:1) KJV "Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the true faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."
KING SOLOMON’S LEGACY
Some of the most infamous and ancient techniques for calling up demons from hell are attributed to King Solomon. One of the most infamous of them is the Clavis Salmonis, The Keys of Solomon. This occult system is the foundation for summoning fallen angels and demons from hell to do man’s bidding. Solomon may or may not written "The Keys of Solomon" but because of his sexual sins and his fall into demon worship his name have become synonymous with devil worship and the occult world in general. King Solomon’s fall was because of not keeping his eyes on the Lord who had appeared unto him twice. With a thousand women pulling him in different directions it was impossible for him to keep his focus on the Lord. God had warned the Israelites about multiplying wives unto themselves:
"When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shall dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother. But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, ye shall henceforth return no more that way. Neither shall he multiply wives to himself that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold." [Deut 17:14-17]. KJV
God instructed the Israelites of the restriction on the king that they will ask for when they come into the promise land. The main things that were forbidden for the king were to have many wives and to go after silver and gold. Any man that ever had a relationship a woman knows that it’s a lifetime job trying to keep just one wife happy. For any man to think that he can have over one thousand women calling for his attention and think he can still stay focus on the things of the Lord is not very wise.
This is the beginning of Solomon’s skid into sexual sin and devil worship. You can’t have one thousand of the most beautiful women that you hand-picked yourself waiting for you to come make love to them and not have it affect the other areas of his life. God knew that too many women in one man’s life would pull his attention away from things of God. In Solomon trying please all these women he had to do something’s that was not pleasing to God.
God wanted one thing of Solomon, his many wives wanted something else. Some of the women in Solomon’s life were probably godly women, but many were from pagan countries of which God warned the Jews not to marry into. These many women pulled the once wise king Solomon into devil worship all because he was disobedient to the Lord’s warning of too many women.
The other thing that Solomon was disobedient in was lusting after money. God had already giving King Solomon great wealth but once King Solomon gave in to the gods of lust, the wealth given to Solomon by God was not enough he had to have more. Solomon became an evil king and a burden to his nation.
KING SOLOMON'S CONNECTION WITH THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST "666"
When Solomon turned his back on his God, he turned to the god "Ashtoreth" the god of the ancient Phoenician and Syrian, Jeremiah warned the Israelites of the evils of their going after gods:
"The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger." [Jer 7:18]. KJV
"But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings [including King Solomon], and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil." [Jer 44:17]. KJV
"Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying the incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it into His mind. So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore, is your land desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day." [Jeremiah 44:20-22]. KJV
This so-called queen of heaven is still worshiped in the Catholic Church as Mary worship. This Mary is not the mother of Jesus; it’s the same god that the bible says King Solomon build temples to. The bible says Solomon’s heart was turned to the god of the gentiles, Ashtoreth! The bible makes no mention of King Solomon’s repentance after falling into Satan worship.
Not only did Solomon disobey the Lord concerning too many wives, but he disobeyed the Lord concerning multiplying horse to himself:
"But he [the king] shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way." [Deut 17:16]. KJV
God commanded the Kings of Israel to never return to Egypt or allow the people to return, the Egyptians were the enemies of God and the Israelites were to have no dealings with the Egyptians. Not only did Solomon disobey God’s instruction on not multiplying horses, but Solomon married into Pharaoh’s family, he married the daughter of the Pharaoh. King Solomon was disregarding all the instructions of the Lord:
"And Solomon became allied to Pharaoh King of Egypt by marriage, and took Pharaoh’s daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall of Jerusalem round about." [1 Kings 3:1]. KJV
And Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen:
"And he had a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, whom he bestowed in the cities for chariots, and with the king at Jerusalem. [1 Kings 10:2]. KJV
"And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt and linen yarn: The King’s merchants received the linen yarn at a price." [1 Kings 10:28]. KJV
Solomon no longer see God’s commandments as binding on him, he no longer does what God wants, but what satisfies Solomon. Solomon becomes a god unto himself! The number 666 is the identifying mark of the beast, the number 6 is the symbol of man, and man was created on the six day of creation, man incomplete without God! 666 is the symbol of man in place of God, or man as the Triune God, the Mark of the Beast! The number 7 represents perfection, each in the family of God is represented by the number 7, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, 777. Lucifer's unholy family is represented by the imperfect number 666 the unholy trinity! The counterfeit!
When Solomon turned his back on the God of heaven he became a god unto himself, and demanded the tribute of a man-god. He was to receive 666 talents of gold. That amount to anywhere from five to ten billion dollars in today’s money system.
"Here is wisdom; Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six ." Rev 13:18 KJV
The number 666 is also mention in two other places in the Old Testament both are in reference to King Solomon. 1Kings 10:14 and 2 Chronicles 9:13.
It’s worth noting that the authors of 1Kings and 2Chronicles found it necessary to mention the exact amount of gold paid to the King one year. The only place in the scripture where the number 666 is mention is in describing the mark of the beast and King Solomon. Solomon was being treated as God on earth, by accepting the 666 talents of gold Solomon allowed himself to be treated as God on earth.
KING SOLOMON, FREEMASONRY AND THE OCCULT
The Masons are a sect of Lucifer [AKA] SATAN Worshipers that are sometimes in the guise of Christians but are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are Gnostics; they don’t believe that Jesus is the messiah, but that He was a false prophet, the worst of all the false prophets. It is this group that have infiltrated the Church of Christ and is causing many of Lucifer’s doctrines to enter the church. The Masons eagerly awaits the return of their messiah Lucifer in form of King Solomon.
Their messiah, King Solomon, is to return in the end time to set on the Throne of David. Many legends of occult magic and demon communication have been connected with King Solomon’s name, including calling up demons and how to make them do one’s bidding in this world. One such work that bears his name is "The Lesser Key of Solomon."
The Key of Solomon or Clavicula Salomonis is an anonymous 17th-century grimier, and a very popular book on demonology. It gives the detailed instructions for calling up at least 72 different demons. Key of Solomon goes against the clear instructions of the bible about worshipping the host of heaven [stars planets and angels]:
"And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. [Deut 4:19]. KJV
"If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant, and hath gone and served other gods, and worshiped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded. [Deut 17:3-4]. KJV
"They shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. [Isa 47:14-14]. "Thus, saith LORD, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven for the heathen are dismayed at them. [Jeremiah 10:2]. I will cut off… them that worship the host of heaven." [Zephaniah 1:4-5]. KJV
At the heart of freemasonry is King Solomon and the temple he built, the temple that God destroyed because that temple became the temple of the Synagogue of Satan, the house of worship of Satan.
They are not interested in what it was in the beginning when King Solomon was true to the LORD. They are interested in what it became after King Solomon fell into demon worship.
The Masons claim that Freemasonry is not a religion, but the primary purpose of the Masons is to worship Lucifer and do his bidding, which is clearly stated in the Declaration of Principles on pages 37-39 of the Indiana Monitor and Freemason’s Guide. Their god [Lucifer] they call the "Great Architect of the Universe. The symbol they choose to represent their god is the "All Seeing Eye." This symbol of the all-Seeing Eye is also the symbol used by the Egyptians to represent their pagan god, Osiris. The Masons are in total opposition to the teachings of Christ.
As we shall see, Lucifer have but two main goals; to make man kneel before him as God, the God of King Solomon’s Temple, God’s Throne on earth, the other is the destruction of man in the end. You had better know your enemy and know his tricks very well so as not to be deceived by his black-light shows of deception that he’s capturing the entire inhabited earth with.
The only sure defense against the tricks of the devil and his angels is to be rooted in the word of God (the King James Bible) be careful of New translation bibles, many of the occult teaching have slipped into them.
I grew up in a very religious family, a religion of Spiritism and because of that up-bringing I was caught-up in the occult. I have many occult experiences that only led me deeper and deeper into the deep things of Satan. One of my addictions to the occult was the UFO phenomenal and spirit contact which is forbidden in the word of God. Playing around with deceiving spirits, that includes UFO's will lead to the soul's destruction, that is why I'm publishing this article as a warning to those who have not gotten involved in the truly deep things of Satan to stay clear! I was headed for Hell!
