There has been a lot of chit-chat on the secret soceity board, about Albert Pike, and the luciferian conspiracy, dealing with masons. Bsically therie
is one passage in pike's book that intimates toward the importance of Lucifer. Lucifer is the literal traslation of the planet venus, Lucifer means
bringer of light, Or the morning star. Here is that passage...
"Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls?
Doubt it not!"
Pike also elaborates much into the bringer of light, being symbolic of the morning star. The ancients worshipped the symbolic menaing of veunus. the
sacred feminine, and noted its duality ans the morning star and evening star. The truth is that they had no idea that the M.S. and the E.S wer in
fact the same planet. So half of the time it represented light and the other half dark, male and female, god and lucifer.
In the new religion of the ages, christianity, there is duality between god and lucifer. They represent complete oppisites, God-creator of everything
and giver of knowledeg, and protector of the innocent, and all that other jazz. Lucifer-and angel that fell from the ranks of heaven, struck down to
hell by god. These tow are polar oppisite, and when they meet one always triumphs over the other.
In the bible in Rev 22:16, jesus says...
"I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and
What pike brings across in his text, seems more like a Gnostic view of religion. That god is witin us, and everything around us, and not in some sill
place called heaven. It focuses toward a more easter, and ancient view of spirituality, something that was lost to the idea of an all powerful God.
He talks about god-given senses like, instinct, and spiritual communication, and a knowledge of nature.
It seems almost like the garden of eden, before the apple was bitten. Before that, man and woman, were in utter harmony but then after eating the
apple, god smote them to earth, whaer pain, fear, hunger, and addiction all rule. And false prophets tempt tehm further from god.
The truth is that Pike says that god and satan are within us and everything around us. It is our CHIOCES that determine wether we are acting as god
would, or as lucifer would. It is like the angel/devil on the shoulder thing. Pike argues that god , can be seen, if you know how to look for him.
He is in nature, which is the only symbolic text of god. He goes on to say that god is embodied by "the balance." The balance is the equilibriium
that keeps every good system in order, it is in the orbits of planets, the life cycle, and the ecosystems of our earth. Pike argues that we are
killing god with ideas like the church and government, and buisness.
If god created all of us in his image, he should look like everything we see around us combined. And doesn't it seem ridiculous, that a being such
as god, could even have a physical image, doesn't it make sense that he may exist in a realm, completely out of our perception? What if god is
standing right next to all of us right now, we just can't see him? This is the nature of pikes text and philosophy.
Is Jesus saying in revelations, that the church (the symbolic "I") was lucifer (the morning star) and that those involved in the church were not
doing the work of god, but rather the work of the devil? Along with the gospels of St. thomas, this seems to be pretty damning evidence against the
church. I would like to hear what everyone thinks...
Let us ask ourselves...
Do we need the church to be good people, or is that something that parents could teach to thier children?
Is the church essential to the functioning of the world, or does it just create more problems than it solves?
Shouldn't every spiritual journey be unique, is the church limiting people's individual spiritual views?
Is what the bible teaches about homosexuality, pre-mariatal relations, and alchaholism right?
the main question I want answered is, what is up with that quote from revelations...Is jesus saying that he represents lucifer? Does lucifer, or
god for that matter, exist at all?
Is religion used by the vatican, and other powerful organization as a tool to do the work of lucifer himself? To create and perpetuate holy war,
to teach people to judge, and feel more important than those who have yet to be "saved?"
