“The Great Dragon was cast out, that Archaic Ophis, called Diabolos and Satan, that deceiveth the whole world.” – HP Blavatsky

Just this past week, Pope Francis had given a sermon in which he had reminded Catholics that the Devil is real and we are called to spiritual warfare. Here is an excerpt and video of this sermon;

There are some priests who, when they read this Gospel passage, this and others say: ‘But, Jesus healed a person with a mental illness’. They do not read this, no? It is true that at that time, they could confuse epilepsy with demonic possession; but it is also true that there was the devil! And we do not have the right to simplify the matter, as if to say: ‘All of these (people) were not possessed; they were mentally ill’. No! The presence of the devil is on the first page of the Bible, and the Bible ends as well with the presence of the devil, with the victory of God over the devil.

Do not confuse the truth. Jesus fights the devil: first criterion. Second criterion: he who is not with Jesus, is against Jesus. There are no attitudes in the middle. Third criterion: vigilance over our hearts because the devil is astute. He is never cast out forever. It will only be so on the last day.


“Are they real, or are these papal claims just religious dogmas perpetuated in order to keep fear in the minds of the billion people who are members of the Catholic Church?”

The religious facts, are that the name of the devil has brought fear and mayhem into the minds of the people ever since it has been written and that this head prince of the demons had fallen when he turned his face away from God. To live, is to spell evil backwards and to be a devil, is to spell the word lived backwards. Hence, we live in a world that has been magically turned upside down, where there is a war for your soul here, and the never-ending spiritual warfare for our minds is a reality that many of us chained souls have come to know intimately.

To some people, the Devil is an invented character by the church, just like Jesus, who they say that his teachings were simply part of a secret Roman government plan that was hell-bent on subjugating the people they had conquered and their minds via religious dogmas. To other people who are more educated on these spiritual matters such as the early Church Fathers and some of the world’s best authorities on the occult, the devil and his legions of demons are as real as Jesus and the Pope.

In the Gospel of Luke, he explains who these demons are and who is their prince;

When Jesus had driven out a demon, some of the crowd said: “By the power of Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he drives out demons.” Others, to test him, asked him for a sign from heaven. But he knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste and house will fall against house. And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that it is by Beelzebul that I drive out demons. If I, then, drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your own people drive them out? Therefore they will be your judges.


In the cult of Serapis, Beelzebul (Beelzeboul, Beelzebub, Beelsebab, Baalzebub or Ba’al) is prince of the Seraphim, just below Lucifer. The cult of Serapis had originated from the Greco-Egyptian priesthood under the Ptolemies. The testimony of Pausanias, says the temples of Serapis were the most famous at Alexandria, and the most ancient at Memphis. Tacitus, the Roman senator and historian had said that Serapis was worshipped as a type of universal deity that represented Jupiter, Osiris, Pluto, and sometimes Jupiter Ammon.

The name Beelzebul is a corruption of the Phoenician God ‘Ba’al’ (usually pronounced “bail”) and is mentioned in the Old Testament as the pagan idol of the Phoenicians, Ethiopians, Syrians and Greeks who had often worshiped Ba’al in conjunction with the fertility and war-goddess, Ashtaroth. The meaning of the term ‘Baal’,  in both Gaelic and in Phoenician is – “the lord of heaven or lord of souls.” The plural of Baal is Baalim, or Baals (Judges 2:11, 10:10).  Baalzebub or Beelzebul (bee-EL-ze-bull) is mentioned 2 Kings i, 2, and the name Beelzebul signifies the Lord of the Flies (which originally meant “Lord of everything that flies”), King of the Earth, and the Prince Daimon who is said to be the chief of spirits amongst the Jews.

Since only priests were allowed to utter his divine name, Hadad, Ba‛al was commonly used and few, if any Biblical uses of “Baʿal” refer to Hadad, the lord over the assembly of gods on the holy mount of Heaven. This is evident in the name Baal or Baalzebub becoming the corruption of Beelzebul, that is only found in the bible via the texts of the Acts of Pilate (also known as the Gospel of Nicodemus) and vary in whether they use Beelzebul or Beelzebub. The name is used by Hades as a secondary name for the Devil, but it may vary with each translation of the text; other versions give the name Beelzebub as Beelzebub, but separates him from the devil. The Gospel of Nicodemus is in two sections, with an appendix, Descensus ad Infernos—the Harrowing of Hell—that does not exist in the Greek texts, and is a later addition to the Latin versions. (Wikipedia)

In ancient Syria, the name, King Hadad was known as Adad, or Aden. The name Hadad is also spelled as Eldad, Bedad, Adad, Aden, Dudu, Dawd, Amnidad and Heldan. The meaning of Hadad is “on of Dod or David”, or Be-dad or Bon-dad, “the son of Dad,” and David, Daoud, or Dood means the beloved ; and as a mythical character the beloved one, the Lord’s anointed. The same is seen in the Kings of Edom, in Genesis in the names of ” Hadad,” Bedad ( = Bendad, son of Dod or David), Samlah, Shaul ( = Saul), and Benhanan. In the names Dod, Dad, Dan and David, we have a specific true meaning behind these other names. This true meaning would be “Father.” Hence, when we find these many different names written in literature, they are referring to one “Lord and Father.”

Many Bible scholars translate the name David as Beloved, but the Hebrew root David (dwd) that yields David (dod), meaning beloved in general or uncle more specifically;  King David’s most beloved son, Solomon. By the side of King Hadad, stood his son Ben-Hadad. In ancient Syrian, Hebrew and Arabic, Ben means son. It is the kings of Edom (Gen. xxxvi. 35) who were called “Hadad, the son of Bedad,” or Ben-[Ha]dad who are also known to us now as the Priests of Baal, serpents, dragons, wise ones, Giants, and the Nephilim who are the Sons of God that became the fallen ones.

Lucifer is another word for the Greek word, Phosphorus (Greek Φωσφόρος Phōsphoros), a name meaning “Light-Bringer” and the Morning Star. Baal, along with Lucifer and Leviathan, were the first three angels to fall, and Baal tempts men with pride and is opposed by St. Francis of Assisi. (Wikipedia) St. Francis was the founder of the Cordeliers and Franciscans. He was also known as the Seraphic Father and Seraphic Saint because of a vision he saw on Mount Alverna where he witnessed a crucified seraph who perforated his feet, hands, and right side. In the New Testament, Baal is identified as the Devil, “prince of the demons” and in Catholic demonology, is one of the seven princes of Hell according to Catholic views on Hell.(Wikipedia)


The Greek word daimon does not carry the negative connotation as it does today with Catholics and Christians. This is explained by 33rd Degree Freemason, Master Rosicrucian and author, Manly P. Hall who had written in “The Secret Teachings of all Ages,” that the Christian Church had literally taken these elemental entities or angels and grouped them together under the title of demon, and that for to the average mind the word demon means an evil thing.

The Christian Church gathered all the elemental entities together under the title of demon. This is a misnomer with far-reaching consequences, for to the average mind the word demon means an evil thing, and the Nature spirits are essentially no more malevolent than are the minerals, plants, and animals. Many of the early Church Fathers asserted that they had met and debated with the elementals.

The Serpent was venerated for thousands of years in ancient Egypt, Phoenicia, Ethiopia, Greece and many other places around the world as an emblem of divinity, an oracle, and as a god. The Greeks called Apollo also by the name of Python, which is rendered the same as Ophis, Opis, Oupis, and Oub. Ophis represents divine Wisdom (Blavatsky). Apollo and Ophis were the sons of Zeus who is the god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, and more. This Serpent-worship or what the church would call devil worship, had continued amongst the Samaritans in the West and in Europe, and with the Druids in Ireland, Scotland and Britain. The Masters of Wisdom, and all Initiates into the Sacred Mysteries are called Nagas, or Serpents of Wisdom . These Gnostic Serpent Priests of Wisdom from the East  had went under various names such as the Ophites, and the Hivites who later became known as the Levites; all these names signify serpent. The Ophites were said to attribute all wisdom to the serpent, who was also the author of knowledge to men.

The biblical legend of the serpent is derived from Greek legends where one of the first Titans, Ophis; meaning serpent, and who ruled over Olympus with his queen; Eurynome was dethroned by the God of chaos and darkness, Cronus (Saturn or Satan) and the goddess of fertility and war, Rhea (Saturn’s Moon). In Greek mythology, Olympus was the home of the Twelve Olympian gods of the ancient Greek world. It formed itself after the gods defeated the Titans in the Titan War, and soon the palace was inhabited by the gods.

To the Phoenicians, Ethiopians, Syrians and Greeks who are the Jews of the Old Testament, Baal was their chief daimon (daemon or demon) or simply, their God. Ba’al would be the equivalent to Jesus in the New Testament, but Ba’al is the race or ancestor God of who we call today the Jewish people of the Old Testament and Jesus would be the new chosen son or messiah, Augustus Caesar with his blood to commemorate as the cornerstone of the newly built Roman Empire, and who under Roman and Cannon Law via the new law of the New Testament would abolish all old gods and teachings of the Old Testament.

From this point forward, Ba’al becomes the devil, their angels become evil ugly demons, and the people called the Phoenicians, Ethiopians, Syrians and Greeks, along with their religion become Jews.  This spiritual event at the turn of the millenia marks the great dividing point between the Old Law under the Greek Ptolemy’s of the Old Testament and the New Law under the Caesars and Rome. Hence, Rome against the world and old spirit world via Vatican magic of the pen and backed by the sword of the Roman Army.

As I mentioned above, Baal is prince of the Seraphim just below Lucifer. The name ‘seraphim’ is the plural form of serpent and is also said to mean, “the burning ones.” Seraphs appear in the 2nd century BC Book of Enoch, where they are designated as drakones (δράκονες “serpents”) and are mentioned in conjunction with cherubs as the heavenly creatures standing nearest to the throne of God. Serapis is the Hellenized version of the Egyptian Osiris-Apis. The various spellings of the name Serapis are Sor-apis (Σέραπις, Attic/Ionian Greek), Sarapis (Σάραπις, Dorian Greek), Serapin (Greek Ὄφις), or in Hebrew Seraph.

Please also note that the great dragon, devil or diabolos is a drakones (δράκονες “serpent”), and is a heavenly creature standing nearest to the throne of God. All these names mean ‘serpent’ which is the symbol of wisdom, knowledge and Gnosis. Hence, the battle against the serpent or the Great Dragon is the battle of the Roman Church against knowledge and Gnosis.

It is the Old Serpent of the Genesis. Since the church was opposed to the serpent who brought this Gnosis and knowledge to men to make them wise, they had symbolically crucified the prince of the Seraphim, Jesus at Golgotha, the place of the skull, in order for the church to take the place of wisdom and the serpent and in which they would become the vicars of Christ. Therefor, Baal becomes Satan or the Old Serpent under Roman Catholic Church Law via the New Testament. A church that was simply against the religion and angels or Daimons (Demons) of the Ancient Greek Jews who had committed the sins of propagating wisdom and Gnosis, and for good reason.

Vatican PopeBut as Pope Francis says, “the devil is astute. He is never cast out forever. It will only be so on the last day.”

Pope Francis and the Devil

“Vigilance, because his strategy is this: ‘You became Christian. Advance in your faith. I will leave you. I will leave you tranquil. But then when you are used to not being so watchful and you feel secure, I will come back’. The Gospel today begins with the devil being cast out and ends with the devil coming back! St. Peter would say: ‘It is like a fierce lion that circles us’. It is like that.”

‘But, Father, you are a little ancient. You are frightening us with these things’. No, not me! It is the Gospel! And these are not lies: it is the Word of the Lord! Let us ask the Lord for the grace to take these things seriously. He came to fight for our salvation. He won against the devil! Please, let us not do business with the devil! He seeks to return home, to take possession of us. Do not relativize; be vigilant! And always with Jesus!”
