Chapter 6. How and Why Some People end up in Satanism
How and why some people end up in the worst form of witchcraft
You’re probably wondering that nobody in their right mind would end up in Satanism, the worst form of witchcraft. Why would someone end up worshiping Satan and pursuing to fulfill normal human desires in evil ways. You probably are saying only insane people can do that.
The answer is yes – only insane people can do that. The only problem is that this is not insanity of the mind. This is insanity of the conscience. Some may include the smartest of people in the world yet their conscience can be damaged from functioning normally. My book, Breaking Spiritual Strongholds and Healing the Wounded Spirit: Dealing with Root Causes, has more detailed info on this topic. Please see chapter 4, “Deception, the No. 1 Doorway for Spiritual Wounds.”
It does not just happen overnight that the conscience becomes dead or seared (burnt) as the bible puts it. It starts from ignoring the little things that trigger the conscience to ring a moral alarm on what’s good and what’s evil. Then a person grows to ignoring the moral alarm on bigger matters.
This is how Satan works in people. He comes to tempt them at their level. His ultimate goal is for them to grow from committing one level of sin to another. Behind each sin he puts a carrot or something desirable. And the best place to make people to graduate from one abomination to another is in the occult. Occult groups that are in Satanism start their recruits at low ranks. They even appear as good, community oriented, and people centered.
As a new recruit grows in fulfilling his newly found faith he/she realizes that he’s way below in ranks compared to some. The ranks are very rewarding of all the human desires: power, wealth, status, influence, respect, protection, you name it. This is particularly so in Satanism occult groups. White witchcraft groups are child’s play compared to groups in Satanism. Even black witchcraft groups in category one are child’s play compared to groups in Satanism.
The new recruit in the occult realizes that at it each level you learn new secrets that help in fulfilling desired matters. The only thing he does not realize is that at each level he is slowly losing his conscience. He’s so caught up with his self-centered pursuits that he ignores the inner promptings from the conscience. As my other book on Christian healing points out from the bible, a conscience is a moral compass God gave to all humanity. Thus all people, including unbelievers, have a conscience.
The bible says about unbelievers (Gentiles), “Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them,” Romans 2:14-15 (emphasis added).
This sidelining of the conscience and justification for the desired matter happens even in normal life that has northing to do with being in the occult. Any of us who may have fallen to one sin or another did so by sidelining of the conscience and making the desired matter more important than obeying the conscience. In street language people say, “I couldn’t resist the temptation.”
People in occult groups at the level of Satanism (sub-category two of black witchcraft) are tempted with many rewarding goodies as they move up the ladder. Their temptation by Satan can be compared to the temptation Jesus experienced in the wilderness. The only difference is that Jesus resisted Satan’s temptation. In the third and final temptation the bible says:
“The devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. ‘All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me.’”
“Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only,’” Matthew 4:8-11.
Satan seeks worship since he wants to be like God. In order to be able to receive this worship he promises people in the occult “kingdoms of the world and their splendor.” He promises goodies that appeal to our senses and desires. The goodies don’t come cheap. In return he requires obedience to what he wants the people to do before being rewarded.
In other ways there is a sacrifice to Satan before receiving his rewards. This sacrifice people have to make is serving or worshiping him. People in occult groups at the level of Satanism (sub-category two of black witchcraft) are the most available and willing to follow all that is required before receiving rewards they want. We can see it from how much wealth, power, status and influence they command in this world. The earthly splendor people in Satanism have is far beyond all other occult groups (religious cults, white witchcraft, and sub-category one of black witchcraft).
A lot of insane and bizarre incidences that we only get to hear of in the media once the culprits get caught are part of Satanic rituals. These include general incest (sexual intercourse between family members), child-molestation incest (by a parent on his own juvenile child), general child-molestation, sodomy rituals, spousal swapping rituals, and so on.
Some marks that leave clues of occult connections are the people themselves. Culprits who seem to commit occult related rituals are people who lead normal lives socially and career wise- at least on the outward. I believe the massive child-molestation offenses that were revealed to have been going on in the Catholic Church were occult related rituals. People from satanic occult groups managed to infiltrate the Catholic Church where they had easier access to children who served as altar-boys.
Think about it: why would a priest who believes in God, fears God, knows what the Bible says about children, want to go out and fulfill his sexual urges on children, even children of his own sexual orientation? He’s not broke to not afford to go to someplace in a disguised manner and find some willing grown-up prostitutes to fulfill his sexual desperations. Then if he got caught it would be a small news story about a celibate priest on heat. And the congregation would probably take him back.
Thus it’s not that he was so desperate to fulfill his sexual urges but that he’s from an occult group where sexual rituals on children is on its menu of rituals. He was not a Christian at any point he was claiming to be one while being a priest.
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them,” Mathew 7:15-16 (emphasis added).
Ferocious wolves, the word used by Jesus, is even a polite word for such people. Their Satanic actions endeavor to disgrace Christianity, harm the lives of little children, and cause parents to doubt and distrust their God. One of the so called priests was strangled to death by another prisoner after he was thrown in jail. The other prisoner had enough conscience to be so devastated by the “priest’s” ferocious actions on children. He was probably a parent.
I’m not justifying the prisoner’s actions of going to the extent of murdering the priest. I’m just trying to show that some actions are so cruel they can only be traced from their source: Satan and people in Satanism. Even ordinary criminals are appalled by such cruelty.
People from satanic occult groups have for centuries been infiltrating the body of Christ. This will be covered ahead, as well as how you can play a role in protecting yourself, your family, other people, and our Christian faith.
It is puzzling that intermediary level ritual abominations are sexual in nature. Thus Satan seeks to be worshiped through rituals that viciously run against the will of God. The very things that anger and infuriate God most are the matters that Satan focuses on as a means of being worshiped.
The highest ritual worship Satan requires is a blood sacrifice. This is not just an imitation of God’s requirement of animal sacrifices in the Old Testament for worship and the forgiveness of sins people committed. For Satan it’s not for forgiveness of sins (obviously). It’s for worship. The top ranks of Satanism have their hands stained with the blood of innocent people for their highest ritual worship of Satan while in return receiving the most prized earthly goodies Satan is able to offer.
The most precious blood sacrifice Satan craves is the blood of saints, the blood of God’s children. This is the highest value in the spirit realm among blood sacrifices. That’s why the bible says in judging those who were able to have God’s children killed God will in turn make them drink their own blood:
“You are just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you have so judged; for they have shed the blood of your saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve,” Revelation 16:5-6.
The blood that people in the occult groups at the level of Satanism drink is largely not drank literally. Even more serious is that of God’s children. It is common knowledge among occult researchers and many bible prophesy scholars that Satanic groups do drink blood for ritual purposes in worship to Satan. However, these blood drinking rituals constitute a tiny fraction of the blood of people they dedicate to Satan.
Think of disasters caused by rituals and occult spells they perform in influencing the spirit realm to bring destruction. These are the major avenues that these groups perform their blood sacrifices. These disasters include some accidents that have a spiritual connection, weather disasters that have a spiritual connection, fires with a spiritual connection, wars with the spiritual connection (many do), illnesses with a spiritual connection, and so on.
Any Christians who die in the midst of these tragedies that are manufactured by people in satanic occult circles are considered a most precious sacrifice to Satan. Thus the largest part of ritual blood sacrifices is through created circumstances and not directly by catching people, then drinking their blood.
“I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus,” Revelation 17:6.
The scripture above ought not to be seen in its literal sense but symbolically. The Book of Revelation is very symbolic. It’s through the decoding of symbols that it's understood.
“Your merchants were the world's great men. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth,” Revelation 18:23-24.
Notice in the above scripture that it says in the woman was found “all who have been killed on the earth.” This time the Bible gives a reference of not just about the blood of prophets and of the saints but “all who have been killed on the earth.”
The category of “all who have been killed on the earth” is not all the people that have died throughout history. Most people die from natural causes that have nothing to do with people in the occult or Satan causing their death. Death is a natural outcome that comes through the fallen nature we inherited from Adam and Eve.
Thus the category of “all who have been killed on the earth” by the woman who drank their blood is a reference to all people who died through occult manufactured circumstances.
Notice also that the scripture above talks about the rewards received by people that slept with or served the woman. It says, "Your merchants were the world's great men."
Merchants are people in business. Thus it's not a coincidence that people in business who are in satanic occult circles our among the world's greatest men and women (mostly men) in wealth, political power, and influence. A more clear scripture on this topic is an earlier one: Revelation 18:3. Here is what Revelation 18:3 says:
“The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries,” Revelation 18:3.
It’s also not surprising that the world's largest and most successful businesses (corporations) use occult symbols and/or names in one area or another, including their logos. These occult symbols and names are largely not visible to people. However they can easily be noticed by many people in both white and black witchcraft occult groups, occult researchers, and many bible prophesy scholars.
In case this sounds very strange it’d be worthwhile to do your own further research on this topic. You'll find lots of information through searching online, at a major library or bookstore. The key word on this topic to narrow your research is “occult symbolism.”
There’s a good documentary that covers more than one would need to know on occult symbolism. The documentary is over the three hours long and is titled, The Subversive Use of Sacred Symbolism in the Media. Its producer, Michael Tsarion, is an occult researcher who’s in white witchcraft but researches on black witchcraft. Thus the documentary is from someone within the occult itself with insider information on occult symbolism. Parts of it can be freely viewed online at Youtube.com and GoogleVideo.com (both websites currently owned by Google).
Not everything in the documentary is gospel truth. However the black witchcraft occult researcher shares a vast wealth of information on how groups in black witchcraft use occult symbolism.
The few flaws in the info are not surprising since any research on occult groups in black witchcraft is bound to have its limitations. Evil occult groups are very secretive by their nature.
Being so secretive means a researcher will have to piece together a lot of information sources that may not all be conclusive. Occult researchers in the secular world largely use white witchcraft sources since white witchcraft is only a step away from black witchcraft. As Harshbarger covered, their common denominator is the three occult practices: magic (sorcery), divination (fortune-telling), and spiritism (necromancy).
We on the other hand, as Christian and bible prophecy scholars, primarily use the bible as our main source of information. The rest of sources only serve to confirm what is already in the bible. The amazing part is that there are a lot of areas of agreement.
Just to be clear to some: the reference in the book of Revelation to a woman who is full of evil, adultery, and prostitution is also symbolic. It has no link to women in a literal sense.
Some dimwitted (unthinking) fellow Christians have gone out to take it in a literal sense that women are the ones causing all this evil. What kind of people are causing a majority of the misery in this world from crimes to wars, greed to rebellion, and so on? Is it men or women? It is men.
When it comes to Christians what kind of people are the majority in most churches. Is it men or women? It is women.
Thus if you have been among those people throwing stones (symbolically) at women it’s time to repent for this unfair gender discrimination. Gender discrimination is one injustice that people like myself cannot put up with, particularly in the body of Christ. Some people in the body of Christ are using the bible to perpetuate human rights abuses against women. It’s not too long ago that the bible was used to perpetuate racial discrimination and slavery. Some have forgotten already since they’re repeating the same tune on women.
I’m sorry this may have gone off track. Let’s move on to the focus of this book: Breaking Occult Spells: God the Spell Breaker, the Spell Buster, covered in the next chapter
