The Lucifer Myth…

December 21, 2011

     The Lucifer myth, its existence or interpretation is argued by many, and whom I’m not sure which bracket to put them in, i.e. “pro”, or “anti” Luciferian’s. As some go along the same lines in saying that; “It may come as a surprise to many modern day Christians, that to the Jews and the New Testament Christian’s, there was no such person as Lucifer”, – though to many other Christians, in the Old Testament, Lucifer is the equivalent to Satan. Yet these very same kinds of people who make such statements, in the next breath are equally defending the “true existence” of such persons like the Devil, Moses, Abaddon or Jesus. So to make things clear, I’m not here to defend who might have, or might not have been such a person, because as I’ve already said, in my opinion all religions are manmade, thus all written works including the Bible, Tanakh, Talmud or the Koran, are mainly fictitious works, tweaked with a bit of truth. And again, when I read the argument; “It is not to Jerome, that we owe the teaching of Lucifer, but to that most creative of theologians, Origen [185-254 AD], as it was he who first made the new connection between Satan and Lucifer”[1]. 

     I’m not interested whether Abaddon, Lucifer, Jesus, Moses, Mohammad, or to that fact, even God as him, her or it – ever existed, as they could all be complete fabrications for all I care, and they’re to me anyway, – and particularly if we’re talking about the same realms as that of the above commenter is implying to. – All I am trying to establish, is as to when the reference to such characters first came about, so I can then see as to why such reverence was placed upon such quasi-like people to begin with.  As we know, most beliefs are totally dependent on faith, so whether Lucifer or Jesus truly ever did or does exist, is irrelevant to me. The fact that other people believe and think they do exist, is what’s important to me, and that they in fact do worship such characters to begin with, – is all I am trying to reaffirm here. 

     Albert Pike wrote on page 321 of Morals and Dogma, that; “Lucifer is the Light Bearer.”  Freemasonry is said to be a search after light, though Grand Lodges cannot directly tell Freemason’s that Lucifer is God, without scaring a lot of them off before they are sufficiently ensnared.  Grand Lodges obviously want their members to find this material, yet they also want to be able to claim; “We have never taught any such thing.” When the documentation is on the table, such denials are seen to be just another Masonic lie. Masons should ask themselves why they would remain a member of an organisation which promotes literature which declares Lucifer to be God? [2]

     Many people believe that Satanists worship Lucifer, however, Satanists such as Anton LaVey says this isn’t always the case, as in his book; The Satanic Rituals, on the front inside cover it states: “Satanism is a vital philosophy which asks you to take your fate in your own hands, – break the barriers that confine you, – sweep aside all that is smothering you – realize your full innate power. The most important commandment of Satanism is: [2] Satanism demands study – not worship. Satan does not need to receive worship to achieve his goals. All he has to do is to keep a man from following Jesus. Satan knows that anyone who does not follow in the teachings of Jesus does not have God” [2 John 1:9-11].

     I’ve already covered other Luciferian meanings and connotations, but for a matter of clarity, – among other meanings, the name “Lucifer”, can be in reference to the planet Venus when it rises ahead of the Sun. [3] And I’m now going to tell you a closely guarded “Masonic secret”, that many Freemason’s don’t even know about, – which is that you can draw/trace the shape of a pentagon via its certain points, which is five, and as Venus orbits around the Sun, which takes 8 years to fully complete this cycle, – and I explain more clearly how this achieved a little further on. The pentagram is also universally used and recognised as a magic or occult symbol, whilst the inner shape of the pentagram, is a pentagon, and again shows you some significance as the why the US military have designed their HQ this specific shape, – and who will try and argue the point, that it’s done for reasons of fortification and strength, – yeah, well what about a heptagon!, it’s all about symbolism and they know it.

     “Luciferianism”, has long been identified by many people as a supplementary to that of Satanism, due to the popular connections in many writings of Lucifer alongside Satan, so accept this form of identification or consider Lucifer as the “light bearer” aspect of Satan. Satan began to be referred to as Lucifer [the Morning Star], and ultimately the word “Lucifer” was treated as a proper name. By the use of the word Lucifer in the 1611 King James Version [4] [the Freemasons favourite edition] of the bible, instead of an alternative description, such as the Morning Star, helped ensure the name Lucifer became popular among the English language. Catholic writer Giovanni Papini quotes Lactantius, a Third Century Christian writer, from his apologetic work, Divinac Institutines 11.9: “Before creating the world, God produced a spirit like himself replete with the virtues of the Father. Later “He” made another, in whom the mark of divine origin was erased, because this one was besmirched by the poison of jealousy and turned therefore from good to evil. He was jealous of his older brother who, remaining united with the Father, insured his affection unto himself. This being who from good became bad is called devil by the Greeks”. Papini concludes that, “According to Lactantius, Lucifer would have been nothing less than the brother of the logos, of the word, i.e. of the second person of the trinity”. – Giovanni Papini: The Devil, p. 81. [5]

     Lucifer, or Satan of the Old and New Testaments, initially was in heaven but fell and took one third of the Hosts of Heaven with him [Isa. 14:12, Rev. 12:9]. His fall from heaven was confirmed by the Savior [Luke 10:18]. The Devil and his angels are most anxious to inhabit the bodies of mortals [Luke. 8:2633; Matt. 9:32]. All the Saviour did, has done, – and will do, is the antithesis of Lucifer, but both Jesus and Satan are offspring of God the Father, as are all members of the human family. In the Latin Vulgate, Jerome translated; morning star, son of dawn – as “lucifer qui mane oriebaris”, morning star that used to rise early. Early Christian writers such Tertullian c160-220, and Origen c185-254, wrote whole passages and had applied Lucifer to Satan. [5]

     The modern day Sufi teacher Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan 1916-2004, taught that Luciferian Light is; “Light that has become dislocated from the Divine Source” [God], and is thus associated with the seductive false light of the lower ego, which lures humankind into self-centred delusion. Even the Koran has references to Lucifer, in Islam, the Devil is known as Iblīs, and according to the Koran, Allah created Iblis out of “smokeless fire”: – “It is, we who created you and gave you shape; then we bade the angels prostrate to Adam, and they prostrate; not so Iblis [6] [Lucifer]; He refused to be of those who prostrate”. [Allah] said: “What prevented thee from prostrating when I commanded thee? He said: I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him, from clay”; Koran – Qur’an 7:11–12.

     There’s many a Masonic like Order, who are openly honest about their veneration towards Lucifer, and what it’s meant to represent to them in a Satanic realm, as they quite obviously understand there is light and dark, good and bad, Ying and Yang etc. – The Order of Phosphorus is a modern day Luciferian Magical Order founded by Michael W. Ford. The Order, and its ecclesiastical arm The Church of Adversarial Light, Sanctifies core Luciferian traits of self-discipline, spiritual excellence and the predatory pursuit of knowledge. This initiatory magickal [as opposed to magic] system fuses the complexities and rewards of traditional ceremonial magic with the efficacy of Chaos Magic. Progress is self-directed and heterodox, evidenced in the Order’s diverse cross-section of Initiates including Theistic, Traditional and Atheistic Satanists, Gnostic Luciferians and a newly-emergent class of “Left Hand Path” pantheism. As in the dominions of the Alpha, Delta, Kappa kind of Greek fraternities, Pan-Hellenism: Pantheism is the view that the Universe [Nature] and God are identical. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal, anthropomorphic – i.e. the attribution of a human form, human characteristics or creator god.

     The Ordo Luciferi is an international occult group that does not mandate any strict religious or dogmatic belief system. Otherwise known as The Luciferian Order, the Ordo Luciferi exists to enable free discussion of philosophy, magic and lifestyle with like minded individuals. There is a series of six named degrees which are granted to members upon recognition by a Magus [third degree member] or above. [7] There is also a ‘working group’ designed for the co-ordination of practical workings, and who are considered the official think-tank of The Luciferian Order, and is engaged in research and development of practical occult techniques.

     The Temple of the Dark Sun [TDS] also known as the Order of the Dark Sun [ODS], is another Luciferian occult organisation that believes you must harness both light and dark energies [Earth, and Universal] to create the natural balance within, thus bringing pure undiluted spirituality, in which is the essence of Order and Chaos. The TDS has a level/degree system, and with all levels and degrees there are certain requirements that have to be met. The Neo-Luciferian Church [NLC] is a Gnostic and Luciferian organisation with roots in western esoterism, Crowley’s -Thelema and Magick. Though the word “Church” suggests religion, the nature of the church is something apart from that. The NLC belongs in the succession from a number of churches, some Gnostic and Magical in origin, others belonging to traditional Christianity. [8]

     It carries on the magical current from the Danish Luciferian, Carl William Hansen [1872 – 1936] alias Ben Kadosh and his Naassenic Gnostic Synod [9]. Hansen wrote; The Dawn of a New Morning, Lucifer-Hiram, The Return of the World’s Master Builder, in 1906 under the pseudonym Ben Kadosh. The NLC is an outer school, a preparation of the individual in his or her aspiration towards the inner sanctuary, that inner order which has no name among men. Luciferians are inspired by ancient Egyptian mythology, Roman mythology, Greek mythology, Gnosticism, and Western occultism.
