The Lucifer Manifesto
This is intended to be an educational post. Your feedback is welcome.
Owing to such great interest in who Lucifer was, and the considerable lack of knowledge concerning just what his sin was, I am publishing the partial
Lucifer Manifesto, which Lucifer presented before the assembled hosts on the capital sphere of our local system of inhabited planets. Upon presenting
the Manifesto, Lucifer seized control of many local governments with the help of his able lieutenant, Satan.
Lucifer and his associates were well-born Sons of the local universe and were unseen as their forms were strictly spiritual. They relied on rebel
humans and other personalities to communicate with the mortals born on earth, and for hundreds of years, they were in command of the real estate they
The Manifesto began a civil war on high. Lucifer rebelled against the government of his local creation. Just as the southern states in the United
States seceded from the union in the Civil War, Lucifer did the same by taking 37 states (planets) out of the union of over 600 spheres. He was chief
of the system government of which our planet was part and took, with the full cooperation of earth’s planetary manager Caligastia, our planet with
him into the rebel camp. Liberation is recent but the cost to repair is going to be high. The reader may find it useful to learn the cause of so
many social and spiritual disruptions on our planet and that the effects of the Manifesto produced in part below will come to an end those practices
which can not sustain social growth to human enlightenment. Repair has already begun.
I am not teaching religion, but about a real event in history upon which some religions base their teachings about evil. However, these eras of
rebellion are so old there is no accurate memory for man except for the oral traditions of pre-Christianity and the writings within certain holy books
of the mainstream religions. Lucifer’s folly was primarily a social disaster but also, in the end, resulted in his spiritual death.
A word about the document record which discloses the Lucifer Manifesto to us:
At the turn of the twentieth century, there had been many partial disclosures of universe affairs to our planet. However, there was no over arching
text with sufficient authority to permit the use of all of the historical records of the universe. Sometime around 1898, a top-echelon mandate was
issued to establish a Commission of divine personalities to correct the problem and to publish the complete truth of the Lucifer travail. This
revelation had to be blunt to be effective. If it was to make any sense out of the conditions we see on our planet today, the story told had to lay
out the history of our sphere and how the results of that history continue to have their effects today.
A SUMMARY of THE LUCIFER MANIFESTO
Whatever the early origins of trouble in the hearts of Lucifer and Satan, the final outbreak took form as the Lucifer Declaration of Liberty. The
cause of the rebels was stated under these main headings:
1. God as the Universal Father did not exist. Physical gravity and space-energy were inherent in the universe. Time-space Deity, he said, invented
the myth that a Father existed somewhere in order to maintain the rule of the universes under such a fiction. No one could describe, he declared,
what the Father was like even though they supposedly met him.
2. The universe government situated in time could do much better if it was allowed to be autonomous instead of being subject to a Son of a
non-existent Father. Worship, Lucifer said, was a clever scheme to aggrandize the Paradise Sons. These high Sons were not his rightful ruler and he
declared himself and the planets he controlled to be free of them.
3. Justice, he said, was his to decide. The Trinity-origin personalities who constitute the tribunals of the universe Supreme Court only interfered
with local events instead of helping them. He denounced the perfect judges as tyrants and usurpers. Only home rule would provide the best government
and that his rebel government was that authority and would assert its right to forge its own destiny free of universe law.
4. Humans were to have their rights extinguished to continue on to the higher educational spheres of mansonia. Henceforth, death on earth meant that
souls would not be transported to the mansion worlds, but they would remain here as the present sphere (earth) was sufficient to teach all they need
And it was with such a Declaration of Liberty that Lucifer launched his orgy of darkness and death.*

It would be useful I believe to list some of the effects our world still feels because the rebellion happened. Among the legacy of darkness left
behind was man’s folly to appreciate Lucifer’s full support for self-aggrandizement at the cost of social progress. Lucifer encouraged full
development of the “me-first” approach to self indulgence and false liberty to do anything one wanted to do without regard to the social cost.
In turn, the selfish nature of Lucifer put into practice policies which shaped how religions and businesses from government to hospitals provide
services. The corruption of thought in society is primarily determined by each individual and what they may, in turn, support as acceptance of
behavioral norms. How can one change the nature one is born with in the genes that perpetuate Lucifer’s worst policies? Until recently our
spiritual mandates from above established the policy that no one was able to touch what Lucifer put into place until the whole issue settled with the
courts. That day has come and we will be hearing a lot more on this problem for the rest of our lives.
