The Occult VS Christianity
An Open Letter to the Illuminati Cult

Bridget S. Howe
July 2013




In the world we live in today, the popular culture has adopted the view in many circumstances that there is no such thing as right or wrong. Ergo if someone is doing something offensive to you, it is not wrong, it is different. So things that would have shocked and dismayed the average person a century ago today, don't raise an eyebrow today. We have a shifting foundation. The problem is with what is called a worldview.

The Judeo/Christian worldview includes a belief in a supreme being who is absolutely holy, perfect in every way, who created Heaven and Earth and all that lives on the Earth including mankind whom he created in his own image. We prefer the Bible for the basis of exploring this world view. In the Bible there are clearly a set of moral absolutes that are non-negotiable and come with consequences for violations. In the biblical worldview repeat offenders who refuse to acknowledge their offenses upon death are faced with eternal incarceration in Hell. Those who repent are welcomed to Heaven. All are considered repeat offenders. From that foundation a world was created in which the rule of law governs. The laws are enforced equally across the board. There are not two sets of rules - one for a certain group of people and another for a more privileged class. All are considered equal in the eyes of God.

In the world of the Occult the concepts of love mercy and grace are rejected. It is very interesting to me that the occult rejects the moral absolutism of the Judeo/Christian worldview. You embrace all forms of sensual pleasures, have no problem with lying, cheating, murder, or stealing. However, you place a tremendous emphasis on obedience to your occult leaders. Infractions to occult law are death with in gross severity even death. Though you scorn the idea of moral absolutes you have laws that absolutely have to be obeyed without question .Your leaders have literally become gods who rein supreme.

In God's kingdom, infraction was dealt with first by Christ's death on the cross. Christ becomes the payment of the penalty for infraction. Thus the death penalty earned by disobedience was resolved. There is discipline for infraction, but there is a balance between justice and grace. "God does not treat us as our sins deserve, but as far as east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 102:12, KJV). God is the standard by which our behavior is measured, and none of us can measure up to that standard. Therefore grace and mercy are applied. In the occult, your occult leaders become the standard by which all are measured. What is offensive to the occult leaders is "immoral" and violators are dealt with without mercy. There appears to be a particular sickness associated with occult practice. Some of you appear to enjoy finding something to punish someone for. The concepts of love and mercy are erased from community life. Unfortunately the human personality without love becomes cold and dead. A conscience fails to develop. There is no real emotional attachment, and therefore the ability to feel someone else's pain is absent. The person without emotional attachment has to find a way to feel something. So occult practice in riddled with human sacrifice including the drinking of adrenalin laced blood, the use of recreational drugs, promiscuous and perverted sex, and sadism. We were created by God in his own image. What happens when people condition themselves to hate, deny the necessity of love, and harden their hearts against the natural sense of shame that occurs when the laws of God are violated is that you get numb inside and you have to find something to stimulate yourselves. Therefore causing other people to suffer becomes pleasurable. Without love there is no emotional attachment and there is no conscience. Where there are no emotional attachments, there is this constant numbing of your own pain from the deadness inside that you feel.

The concept of moral absolutes implies fixedness. In other words those absolutes do not change. They remain constant. That is because they are based on the unchanging nature of a holy God. Therefore punishment is based on a fixed standard that does not change. What was worthy of punishment yesterday will still be punishable 100 years from now. It would benefit those of the occult to ponder the absurdity of punishment in a society that has rejected moral absolutes. Further it would be worth reflecting on the fact that your very human and imperfect leaders become the standard by which you measure yourselves and by which you are mercilessly punished for violations. Consider that a very perfect and holy God meets violations of his standard with grace and mercy.

Luminaries consider themselves superior to the rest of the human race. In genuine mercy, I would like to challenge that. You have no moral or ethical code, so therefore you would not consider yourselves morally superior to the rest of the human race. If your basis for superiority is that you are genetically equipped with superior intelligence that can also be easily challenged. There are multiple people with superior intelligence who are not luminaries and many of them highly gifted artists, writers and musicians. Bach, for example, was a highly intelligent musician who, even after his passing, is world renowned. Although his music is considered classical and is usually heard instrumentally, Bach was a believer in Jesus Christ and his music were hymns that were sung in church on Sunday. He was a worship leader in the house of God. The French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Christian philosopher, Blaise Pascal, was a believer in Jesus. He is famous for his statement, "The heart has reasons the mind knows nothing about." He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a tax collector in Roun. Michael Angelo was the brilliant artist who painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling and communicated one of the most important Christian truths of the faith, that God is completely separate from man, absolutely other than Adam his creation. Those are only a few, and there are many of superior intelligence who glorified the God who, of superior intelligence to all, created the universe in six days by the word of his mouth. Try to challenge that, and you will run into a wall. This universe with all of its interconnected parts and pieces functions with fine-tuned precision. No accident produces that kind of order. No, this universe was created by a being of superior intelligence. The most magnificent edifices of the world have taken months and even years to build with multiple minds at work and even more builders to carry out the plan. There is no one on earth that can put together a universe as grand and as ingenious as this one, much less in six days without building materials, machinery or a crew of laborers.

Perhaps you consider your superiority is based on the unique knowledge you gained from the ascended masters as you call them. I don't make it a practice to delve into occult lore or witchcraft, but I will take my cues from one of your own, Svali Walthrop. In an interview with HJ Springer, editor of centernews.com, Svali reveals that Illuminati doctrines are based on the Babylonian and Egyptian mystery religions. Your deities are names familiar with the mystery religions such as Set, Ra, Osiris, Horus etc. The classical myths speak of these deities. Alexander Hislop, author of The Two Babylons, takes an extensive look at the mystery religions and their origins. What becomes clear from his book is that many of these deities relate back to one man, Nimrod, who in the post flood world and in the Bible is referred to as "a mighty hunter before The Lord" (Genesis, 10:9, KJV). Hislop took a look at the classic myths and the mystery religions and determined that in every culture there was a particular set of myths that had common themes and characters with common characteristics. What he was able to do by looking at what each of these characters accomplished and the meaning of their names was connect the dots so to speak. He thus traced these "deities" back to Nimrod, and his wife Semiramis.

All the myths contain the story of the flood and the pre and post flood world. What actually happened after the flood is that Nimrod became a hero because he built walled cities to protect the people from the attacks of wild animals that were running wild at that time. He also hunted down animals that were threatening the people of his kingdom. The Bible says that the beginning of his Kingdom was Babylon (Genesis 10:10). The people of that period in history were all very fearful of God because of the memory of the flood, a story that was passed down generation by generation by word of mouth because the art of writing had not yet been developed. Nimrod became angry with God, and rebelled. He led the people in apostasy and licentious living.

The Jewish Encyclopedia and the historian Flavius Josephus also agree that Nimrod was a rebel who became a tyrant with a passion to rule the known world at the time. Hislop's research reveals that Shem, a son of Noah of the original family saved on the ark, feared God and became angry with Nimrod. He murdered him in ancient Middle Eastern style. He cut Nimrod's body into pieces and sent those pieces around to the surrounding kingdom as a warning to anyone who persisted in following in Nimrod's ways.1 Something like this is seen in the Bible in the story of the Levite whose concubine was surrendered to a group of homosexuals who raped her and abused her all night. She was found dead on the doorstep in the morning. Thus the Levite cut her body in pieces and sent the pieces throughout the kingdom as a warning to all Hebrews. This resulted in a war in which the entire tribe of Benjamin was nearly wiped out. The story is found in Judges 19 and 20.

With the death of Nimrod, his Queen, Semiramis, also referred to in the Bible as the Queen of Heaven, deified her husband and it may have been her who began the construction of the Tower of Babel as a monument to her dead husband in order to hold the kingdom together.2 God of course intervened and confused the languages of the people and scattered them (Genesis 11). Josephus indicates that the tower was destroyed by God himself.3 Thus, people who had all been through the same experiences were now divided with different languages. The myths are a reflection of real events corrupted by the generational transmission by word of mouth. The characters are all the same but have different names because God divided the languages of the people. In addition to that, the Bible speaks of "the sons of God" who fell in love with human women and married them (Genesis 6). The human women had children by these fallen angelic beings and produced offspring that were giants. These fallen angels and their offspring brought such wickedness on the earth that God was forced to bring about the flood to cleanse the world of its evil. These creatures also appear in the myths. Their giant bones are being found everywhere today. Try googling "Nephilim" and you can read about it.

Lucifer is a liar and in the Bible he is referred to as the father of lies (John 8:44, NIV). Jesus tells the people that Satan was a liar from the beginning and when he lies he is speaking his native tongue. Your community might disagree with that. You might say that Jesus is a liar instead and Satan/Lucifer tells the truth. Am I wrong? Consider that the Bible says that God cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18). It was God who commanded his own not to lie. This is the ninth commandment. And in Revelation 21:18 he warns that liars will end up in the lake of burning sulfur. Also consider that you embraced a philosophical view that it is okay to lie as long as it accomplishes something good for your cause? Am I wrong? In fact there is no one who has not lied about something. Nevertheless those who worship Jesus Christ know without a doubt that lying is not acceptable. You worship one who affirms the necessity of lying. It is also conceivable therefore that he has lied to you. Your secret knowledge comes from a liar and his fallen angels. You believe the ascended masters to be people who have died and gone on to achieve a godlike state in the spirit world. Consider, then when Jesus died he rose again in a fleshly body. There were multiple witnesses to his death and resurrection and much evidence in favor of that resurrection. I will discuss this later. Jesus teachings are not secret. In fact Jesus instructed his disciples that what they heard in secret they were supposed to shout from the housetops. “Everything that is secret will be brought out into the open. Everything that is hidden will be uncovered. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight. What is whispered in your ear, shout from the rooftops” (Matthew 10:26, 27).

Let's consider something else. How is it possible that something that is imparted to you, something that is not innate to you, that you were not born with can make you superior? You have become enlightened. You were the passive recipients of some unique knowledge which is kept secret from the rest of humanity. And that then gives you the right to perpetrate crimes on the rest of the unenlightened humanity? So if we passed that "secret" knowledge on to the rest of humanity and they all became "enlightened" then nobody would be superior anymore and we could stop the insanity? I do believe Aleister Crowley did in fact publish some of your secrets and that caused a bit if a stir resulting in a lawsuit which he won.

Something has been imparted to me by virtue of my faith in Jesus Christ. Do you know what that is? It is righteousness. I was not born with it and from a Biblical perspective, as well as my own, I could not possibly have earned it. It is not my own righteousness. It was a gift granted to me by God so that I could partake in his kingdom (Philippians 3:9). In fact every believer in Jesus Christ is considered righteous in the eyes if God simply by virtue if this gift. Does it make us superior? Absolutely not. In fact we are admonished by the Apostle Paul not to think more highly of ourselves then we ought (Romans 12:12) but to consider everyone better then ourselves (Philippians 2:3). Self-righteousness is a sin which as believers we must guard ourselves against. This was communicated by Jesus Christ in the parable he taught to his disciples in Luke 18:9-14. He talks about a very religious Pharisee who thought he was better than the sinner weeping next to him. The sinner was begging God for mercy. Jesus declares that the sinner begging for mercy will enter Heaven before the Pharisee. The Prophet Isaiah tells us that our righteousness is as filthy rags in the eyes in the eyes of God (Isaiah 54:6).

Satan who you worship was himself thrown out of heaven for rebelling against the throne of God. With him were one third of heaven's angels, who are demons. The irony here is that you refuse to tolerate any resistance to your occult authority. This is the one unpardonable sin among your ranks. But let us consider one of your own rank who did challenge his occult leader and won the challenge. That would be Aleister Crowley, famous wizard who challenged the authority of Mr. Samuel Liddell McGregor Mathers. According to record, Crowley believed he had received instruction from the Chief Masters and therefore that put him in the leadership chair for the Order of the Golden Dawn. A supernatural fight between Mathers and Crowley ensued with both unleashing curses on the other. Mathers did in fact die. Though many documents indicate he died during an influenza epidemic, his death certificate lists no cause of death.4 Therefore Crowley became the leader of the Order by virtue of his ability to overpower his opponent's supernatural power.

I will refer the reader to Svali's interview with Greg Sczymanski in 2006. Her testimony can be found on You Tube or by googling Sczymanski Svali interview. In her testimony, Svali discusses the abuse you perpetrate on your children and underlings. She tells us that cult members comply with the abuse in order to avoid the abuse themselves. She indicates that there would be a mass exodus from the cult if members thought they could get out and go on living. She confirms then that the Illuminati use threats and intimidation to maintain control of their members. Perhaps your superiority is based on nothing more than your ability to impose your will on those around you. Might makes right? When you are no longer able to do so, you are no longer superior. Satan or Lucifer, depending on which group you prefer, was thrown out of heaven because his might was inferior to the very holy God who sits in that throne. Then he attempted to kill the heir to the throne, God's son Jesus Christ, who rose from the grave. Challenge that fact if you will, but you will have to blindly deny the evidence that supports the resurrection. I would refer you to a book by scientist Kenneth Stevens, Image of the Risen Christ, in which he discusses the evidence for the resurrection found in the shroud of Turin. The most important record we have of Christ's resurrection is in the gospels, and the Shroud of Turin Research Team concluded that the man buried in that shroud did in fact suffer and die in the exact same way as the biblical record indicates that Christ suffered and died. There is also evidence in the shroud for the resurrection. The STRP team determined that the man who was buried in that shroud also rose from the dead.

Svali is a believer in Jesus Christ now. She tells that she left the occult when she came to the realization that she had been lied to and everything she had been taught was a lie. She was also tired of the abuse she had endured and had been forced to perpetrate on her own children. If people begin to understand that God has a standard that is designed to protect the individual and community life, and that this standard is enforced by love and not abuse and intimidation, who exactly would choose an abusive cult over the love of God? Where the occult uses mind control to keep people in a perpetual childlike state never able to think for themselves or act independently, God gave Adam and Eve a free will from the start and allowed them to make a wrong choice. People are encouraged in God's kingdom to grow up, to think, create and live. In the occult world the concept of free will, along with love, is erased. People are not valued as individuals and are not encouraged to act independently. They remain in a perpetual childlike state always serving the needs of the cult as slaves. In the Kingdom of God, those who make the free choice to follow Christ and obey God are considered family, not slaves. God refuses to rule with threats and intimidation. Though God does in fact punish the guilty, he gives the guilty plenty of time to reconsider and repent of their sin before he executes judgment. For in the scripture it clearly states, "Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice" (Isaiah 30:18, NIV). And again, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it" (Isaiah 1:18-20, KJV). For God does not find any joy or delight in punishment. He prefers repentance. "Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?" (Ezekiel 33:11, KJV). And again, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9, KJV). Perhaps you don’t think that what you are doing is evil. Svali herself said that in the cult people are taught that what they are doing is “helping”. She said also that she really did not perceive the people of the cult as evil but for a few. So I shall define the word evil for you from a Biblical perspective. It is anything that deviates in any way from the standard that God established which is based on his own character. In that regard, but for the blood of Jesus we are all of us evil. I am not trying to judge you.

Consider that your leaders go yearly to the Bohemian Grove for the Cremation of care ceremony. During this ceremony, someone is sacrificed to that 40 foot stone owl either in effigy or in reality though we know from Cathy O'Brien's testimony that you do engage in real human sacrifice there.5 The sacrifice is intended as a means of assuaging your guilty conscience. You have indulged in every form of promiscuous sex including the sexual abuse of your children, you lie, cheat, steal and do “what you wilt” all in an effort to further your New World Order. The Cremation of Care Ceremony implies that you have done something for which you feel ashamed. You have in fact violated an ethical code. The paradox is that you deny the validity of such a code. So you make a sacrifice to atone for your sin while you insist that you have done nothing wrong. You can therefore persist in committing the same acts over and over again. Consider that you have sacrificed someone else’s son or daughter to assuage your guilt so you can go on doing the same things. In fact God sent his own son to free you of your guilt and cleanse you of your sin. What he asks of you is to stop sinning. Stop the insanity. Repent of your sin. Turn from doing evil and do good.

Your ambition is to rule the world. That was in fact Nimrod's ambition and like Nimrod, the personality behind the mystery religions, you rule with tyranny. It has been Satan’s ambition all along to rule the world and he was the personality behind Nimrod. I have to warn you, again with mercy, God’s throne remains unchallenged. He will not be moved from his throne. However, that should not be a problem for you. He has nothing against you that he does not hold against all of humanity. You are sinners and you need a savior. God is just. He would prefer to forgive you than judge you. But he gave you a free will. You have to make that choice.

In the Bible we are clearly told that there is going to be one final challenge to God's throne. That will be the last battle at Armageddon. Scripture tells us that God will destroy his enemy with the word of his mouth (Isaiah 11:4 ) and that the ten kings which the antichrist sets up to rule will be destroyed in one hour (Revelation 17:12). Satan/Lucifer will be locked up for a thousand years while Christ rules the earth (Revelation 20:1). Then he will be released for a little while to test the hearts of men before he is locked up in Hell forever. Then Jesus Christ will go on ruling the universe with justice and grace.

Consider the scripture, “What does it prophet a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul” (Matthew 16:26). You have a soul. It is that thing that leaves your body when you are astral projecting. That part of you will go on living somewhere for all eternity. You have a choice. Jesus says to you "Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew11:28). When you have to consider the fate of your eternal soul, is it worth it to you to go on embracing and believing a lie? If it is that you fear your leaders, I assure you that they are no match for the Almighty. He deeply and desperately loves you and he longs to show you mercy. He is rejoicing right now over Svali who trusted in him. In Matthew 10:28 Jesus says to you, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but can’t kill the soul. Instead, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in Hell.” Only God can condemn you to Hell for all eternity. He is the one who sent his son to the cross to save you because he does not want to condemn you. He wants to wash the slate clean for you and give you a brand new life. You have to make a choice.
