at any rate, and it is to be presumed that the various authors of the books of the bible knew what they meant, and did not use this peculiar and unique form without good reason "and the spirit of the male and female conjoined principles moved upon the surface of the formless, and manifestation took place" if we want equilibrium instead of our present condition of unequal stresses, we must worship the elohim, not jehovah. 36. the worship of jehovah instead of the elohim is a potent influence in preventing us from "rising on the planes" that is to say from obtaining supernormal consciousness as part of our normal equipment; for we must be prepared to shift our polarity as we shift level, for what is positive on the physical plane becomes negative on the astral, and vice versa. mystical qabal

netzach can ever have an all-round development, but must always be a creature of one idea, one single, simple, stereotyped function. 5. it is the netzach factor in ourselves that is the basis of our instincts, each of which, in their unintellectualised essence, gives rises to appropriate reflexes, just as an infant's lips will suck anything that is inserted between them. 6. the beings of netzach, the elohim, are not so much intelligences as the embodiments of ideas. 7. these elohim, to give them their hebrew name, are the formative influences whereby the creative force expresses itself in nature. their true character is to be discerned in chesed, where they are described by the sepher yetzirah as the holy powers" in netzach, however, which represents the upper stratum of the reflecting eth

serpent as the persecutor of mankind, the view we have been commanded to accept in scripture and by the leaders of religion. but if we are hermetics or gnostics, or even more open-minded kabbalists, we may suspect that the gnostic opinion has virtue, and that the serpent initiated the reformation and salvation of mankind that will ultimately result in the ascent of humanity to the status of gods (the elohim, a status that the jealous god of the old testament concealed from mankind at our time of origin. once we understand that the enochian angels viewed coronzon as equivalent to lucifer or satan, we can learn something about the nature of coronzon by studying the references to the devil or the old serpent that occur in the bible. a very interesting reference is found in the book of revelat

LEWIS JAMES SATANISM TODAY AN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION FOLKLORE AND POPULAR CULTURE

into ufo literature is in ufo religions. an interesting case study is the raelian movement, founded in france in 1973 by claude vorilhon, better known as rael. like the classic ufo contactees, rael claimed to have encountered humanoid space aliens. these beings explained to rael that the human race had been created with sophisticated genetic engineering techniques by extraterrestrial scientists (the elohim, meaning, literally, those who came from the sky) in their laboratories. the elohim further explained that rael himself was the offspring of a mortal woman and an alien named yahweh. the raelian movement perceives itself as a scientific religion, founded to spread the truths revealed to rael. one of the major goals of the movement is to build an extraterrestrial embassy in israel in ord

y, humanity would, in a later, scientific age (i.e, the current age, be able to look back over traditional scriptures and perceive what had really happened. rael, the last of the forty prophets, is the bearer of this message. rael claims that many of the figures in traditional religious mythologies are actually space aliens. satan, it seems, is the head of a party of opinion on the home planet of the elohim opposed to genetic experiments who believe that humanity poses a potential threat and should be destroyed.according to rael, in let s welcome our fathers from space, satan thought that one could not expect anything good from these scientifically- created creatures, and that out of man only evil could come. satan was like the head of a political party on the planet of the elohim, which w

there are two forms. in the first every letter of a word is taken for the initial or abbreviation of another word, so that from the letters of a word a sentence may be formed. thus every letter of the word tycarb, berashith, the first word in genesis, is made the initial of a word, and we obtain hrwt larcy wlbqyc \yhla har tycarb, be-rashith rahi elohim sheyequebelo israel torah .in the beginning the elohim saw that israel would accept the law. in this connection i may give six very interesting specimens of notariqon formed from this same word tycarb by solom meir ben moses, a jewish qabalist, who embraced the christian faith in 1665, and took the name of prosper rugere. these all have a christian tendency, and by their means prosper converted another jew, who had previously been bitterly

o do so with some degree of intelligence! in the opening chapter of genesis it is stated that after creating light and separating it from darkness, the seven elohim divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. having thus established the inferior universe in perfect accord with the esoteric teachings of the hindu, egyptian, and greek mysteries, the elohim next turned their attention to the production of flora and fauna and lastly man "and god said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness* so god created man in his own image, in the image of god created he him; male and female created he them. and god blessed them, and god said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth" consider in thoughtful silence the start

less. it may have been feared that had the word been correctly translated as "the male and female creative agencies" the christians would have been justly accused of worshiping a plurality of gods in the face of their repeated claims to monotheism! the plural form of the pronouns us and our reveals unmistakably, however, the pantheistic nature of divinity. further, the androgynous constitution of the elohim (god) is disclosed in the next verse, where he (referring to god) is said to have created man in his own image, male and female; or, more properly, as the division of the sexes had not yet taken place, male-female. this is a deathblow to the time-honored concept that god is a masculine potency as portrayed by michelangelo on the ceiling of the sistine chapel. the elohim then order these

ls, who execute the divine decrees, and whose predominance in heaven is in mysterious correspondence and relation with the powers and dominions of the earth. in job, the morning stars and the sons of god are identified; they join in the same chorus of praise to the almighty; they are both susceptible of joy; they walk in brightness, and are liable to impurity and imperfection in the sight of god. the elohim originally included not only foreign superstitious forms, but also all that host of heaven which was revealed in poetry to the shepherds of the desert, now as an encampment of warriors, now as careering in chariots of fire, and now as winged messengers, ascending and descending the vault of heaven, to communicate the will of god to mankind "the eternal" says the bereshith rabba to genes

lates itself and dissolves itself, with a constant harmony; it is double; it is androgynous; it embraces itself, and fertilizes itself, it struggles, triumphs, destroys, renews; but never abandons itself to inertia, because inertia, for it, would be death. it is this original substance to which the hieratic recital of genesis refers when the word of elohim creates light by commanding it to exist. the elohim said "let there be light" and there was light. this light, whose hebrew name is hb:aleph-vau-resh "aour" is the fluidic and living gold of the hermetic philosophy. its positive principle is their sulphur; its negative principle, their mercury; and its equilibrated principles form what they call their salt. one must then, in place of the sixth aphorism of mesmer which reads thus "matter

the religious reform brought about by moses was altogether qabalistic, that christianity, in instituting a new dogma, has simply come nearer to the primitive sources of the teachings of moses, and that the gospel is no more than a transparent veil thrown upon the universal and natural mysteries of oriental initiation. a distinguished but little known man of learning, mr. p. lacour, in his book on the elohim or mosaic god, has thrown a great light on that question, and has rediscovered in the symbols of egypt all the allegorical figures of genesis. more recently, another courageous student of vast erudition, mr. vincent (de l'yonne, has published a treatise upon idolatry among both the ancients and the moderns, in which he raises the veil of universal mythology. we invite conscientious stud
