Cathar Prophecies, Lion Gates and the Age of Wormwood

If you’ve been following my video blog on my YouTube channel with Part 1 of Welcome to the Unveiling, you will be at least aware of the legends associated with Ragnarok and the twin comets connected to Jormungand the Midgard serpent, and the monstrous giant wolf Fenrir which ritually consumes the Sun. The Fenrir Wolf’s relationship with the Sun is also seen in alchemy as well with the Green Lion eating the Sun–we’ll get this later. Perhaps one could say this post will feature a whole slew of videos for my readers to watch, ponder and reflect on.

After I released my part 1 video on the Welcome To The Unveiling series, Marvel released the trailer for their upcoming “The Eternals” which is about a team of superhero gods created by the “Celestials” (along with their sworn enemies being the monstrous and chimeric “Deviants”) which are a primeval race of titanic “ultraterrestial” archons that can seed and germinate life throughout the cosmos, as well as initiate Armageddons on multiple worlds throughout the universe. In the trailer, it features a scene in which a “comet” (in reality a celestial “seed”) crashes into Earth and immediately creates chaos all throughout the world, including earthquakes, tsunamis and other biblical calamities.

Whether this takes place in the long ago past or in the “present” remains to be seen. Is this a subtle reference of the adversary “falling like lightening” per Jesus’s testimony in Luke 10:18 to the earth or the leviathan-like dragon combo of Samael/Satanael and Lilith that constantly threatens to the snuff out all universal existence/creation? According to Rudolf Steiner, the “Ahrimanic” spirits consistently fall to the earth like shooting stars when they were/are cast out of heaven to the earth, just like it says in Revelation 12:7, with Michael hurling the great dragon and his angels into the earth/hell. This is the same Rudolf Steiner who would say that vaccines being the “future” or “final solution” of medicine (see the Dark Journalist YouTube video below). Earlier this year, we also had Lil Nas X come out with “Satan sneakers” and his signature homosexual brand of the usual Satanic pop music as well.

The idea of Michael hurling down Satan and his legions of fallen angels and demons to the sublunary realms is corroborated in the Testament of Solomon (attributed to King Solomon of course), as it says that the ancient fallen angels/demons dwell in the star constellations/stellar regions of the Zodiac. In the text, the Holy Angels of God are sent to man to thwart the malevolent influence of these Nephilim spirits that wander the earth and the cosmos. The Old Testament also says that astrology is evil. The Zoroastrians said the stars and planets were evil and controlled by demonic forces. The Book of Enoch says something to this effect, as well. But ironically, the Gnostics said the stars and planets were the evil archons, and some like the Valentinians taught that baptism freed you from the influence of the stars. All of this connects to Wormwood as well. According to Reading Acts, Wormwood connects to subjects already discussed on my blog:

The third trumpet resembles the plague of the freshwater in Exodus 7:20, the Nile turned to blood. That this is a “great star” with a specific name is important. Enoch describes fallen angels as “seven stars of heaven. . . like great mountains and burning with fire” (1 Enoch 21:3). It is therefore likely the image of a star falling from heaven refers to some kind of spiritual being.

Unlike Disney-saturated western world, “shooting stars” were signs of good luck. A falling star was bad luck and a comet was even worse. “…comets were considered prodigies that signaled the imminence of death and disaster (Manilius Astron. 1.892-926; cited by Aune 2:520). Anyone reading these verses in the first century would understand this as a “bad sign.”

Readers miss the point of third trumpet by focusing on the effects of a literal comet or meteorite hitting the earth. Along with these three examples in Jeremiah of the Lord giving Israel bitter or poisoned water to drink as a sign they are under God’s judgment, consider also Jeremiah 25:15-16:

Jeremiah 25:15-16 “Thus the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup of the wine of wrath, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. 16 They shall drink and stagger and be crazed because of the sword that I am sending among them.”

The prophet is told to make the nations drink the cup of God’s wrath. Following this command, verses 18-26 list many nations, concluding with Babylon. The rest of the chapter describes the Lord’s judgment on the whole earth: “I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth” (25:29). Verse 33 summarizes: “a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.” Just as in Jeremiah’s day, John describes a judgment on the world in which the Lord makes the whole world drink bitter water as a sign of their guilt.

Steve DeNoon of Israeli News Live also recently posted a video about the coming comet/asteroid curiously called “99942 Apophis” that will either hit the earth, or fly close by in the year 2029–the year before the “Great” Reset is supposed to be completed in 2030. Steven also mentions the infamous Deagel calculations of a mass population die off of NATO affiliated countries by 2025–especially the United States of America. With the looming mandatory vaccination/social credit passes that are about to be unleashed globally along with various biological attacks, martial law-like lockdowns, democide sounds like a distinct and real possibility. All of this reminds us of the infamous prophecy regarding Wormwood of Revelation 8. Tom Horn also talks about this planet killer asteroid, popularized in “acclimation” films like Deep Impact, Armageddon, Greenland, etc.

Wormwood seems to be comparable to something that happens in alchemy, when all of the planetary metals conjoin into something called the “One Thing” or the Monad as pursued by black magician John Dee and later Satanists who seek “Year Zero” aka the “New Aeon” of Horus/the Antichrist. Some people on YouTube seem to think the Wormwood Star is the twelfth planet Nibiru or the Destroyer as the Kolbrin Bible calls it and that “the Powers that be” are hiding it in the sky somehow. NASA plainly dismisses such an object as non-existent. Over at Lashtal, a internet forum dedicated to the works of the black magician Aleister Crowley, one board member also cites J. Daniel Gunther’s work on the subject of the New Aeon in connection with Wormwood.

In J. Daniel Gunther’s book Initiation In The Æon of the Child – The Inward Journey, published 2009. the author writes this on page 31:

There is a far deeper meaning of The Abomination of Desolation [mentioned in Daniel 11:31, Daniel 12:11, Matthew 24:15, and Mark 13:14 in the Bible that is understood by initiates. Aspirants should carefully study Liber VII [= Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli] and Liber CDXVIII [= The Vision and the Voice [mostly dated 1909 by Aleister Crowley]].” 

In Liber VII, chapter III, verse 21, an “abominable lonely Thing of wickedness” is mentioned in the following way, “Thou shalt set up the abominable lonely Thing of wickedness. Oh joy! to lay that corner-stone!” 

In THE CRY OF THE 21ST ÆTHYR, WHICH IS CALLED ASP, The Vision and the Voice, an “abomination of desolation” is mentioned in the following way:

“Nothing shall stand before His face”; all we have heard of thine infinite glory and holiness, of thy beauty and majesty, and behold! there is nothing but this abomination of desolation.”

On page 169 in the same book Gunther writes the following: “In chapter 5 of Liber LXV [Oct. 30-Nov. 3, 1907], the comming of the New Aeon is likened unto a Star that falls from the heavens upon the earth [Liber LXV, V:5 [chapter 5, verse 5, 6 and 7: “5. Now is the Pillar established in the Void; now is Asi fulfilled of Asar; now is Hoor let down into the Animal Soul of Things like a fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth. 6. Through the midnight thou art dropt, O my child, my conqueror, my sword-girt captain, O Hoor! and they shall find thee as a black gnarl’d glittering stone, and they shall worship thee. 7. My prophet shall prophesy concerning thee; around thee the maidens shall dance, and bright babes be born unto them. Thou shalt inspire the proud ones with infinite pride, and the humble ones with an ecstasy of abasement; all this shall transcend the Known and the Unknown with somewhat that hath no name. For it is as the abyss of the Arcanum that is opened in the secret Place of Silence.”].”

On page 171 in the same book Gunther writes this: “The “fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth” (LVX, V:5), and the star which is called Wormwood in the Apocalypse [Revelation 8: 10-11 in the Bible] are identical, the former fulfilling the inevitable need to restore balance within the psyche.”

And on page 172 in the same book, Gunther states that the Christian Bible in Luke chapter 10, verse 18: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”, referres to “the same falling star described in our Holy Book, Liber LXV, V:5 [chapter 5, verse 5]”: “Now is the Pillar established in the Void; now is Asi fulfilled of Asar; now is Hoor let down into the Animal Soul of Things like a fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth.”

Interestingly, there is a documentary called The Wormwood Star featuring the occultist Marjorie Cameron, who participated in the infamous Babalon Working of the Satanists L Ron Hubbard and Jack Parson–mentioned in my Welcome to the Unveiling series. Wayne Bush over at Tricked By The Light also connects Wormwood with parasitic worms, the Gnostic demiurge, the Egyptian Apep, John Milton’s Satan as a worm and the alchemical Ouroboros/Leviathan.

After doing R. Wayne Steiger’s show, a very astute listener wisely commented to me, “I find it interesting worm comes from serpent and snake. After quitting processed foods, sugar and chemicals back in 2013 and doing a parasite cleanse, I really started to wonder about the Adam and Eve story. Was the eating of the fruit a way for a parasite to enter our gut and change the way we think? Since cleaning up my gut it really seems like a portal. A literal worm hole…

I find it curious that wormwood, of Revelations fame is also a Greek word is believed to “refer to a plant of the genus Artemisia, used metaphorically to mean something with a bitter taste.[3] The English rendering “wormwood” refers to the dark green oil produced by the plant, which was used to kill intestinal worms.[3] “

You say it’s farfetched? Well, consider the fact we are in a perpetual struggle with organisms and viruses that live within our bodies. Yes, some bacteria are considered friendly, but there are also unfriendly bacteria that make us sick. Many take flu shots every year to combat viruses. Inside us, we have a constant battle raging between white and red blood cells. I would venture to say that the number of people who have parasites is much higher than doctors let on. In fact, one woman I mentioned this to wrote, ” I have been tested for parasites by 2 different doctors and 2 different tests. One said I had a lot of parasites, the other said none.”

Just how prevalent are worms? In mythology, there is the Ouroboros (OUR-oboros), the serpent or worm that devours its own tail and encircles the world. Compare Our-obros with this spelling of Demiurge: Demiourgos. Wikpedia says, “The ouroboros or uroborus (/ˌ(j)ʊərəˈbɒrəs/, also UK: /uːˈrɒbərɒs/,[2][3] US: /-oʊs/) is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon[4] eating its own tail.

On August 20th, while watching a string of different videos, I managed to come across some YouTube videos about the so-called “Cathar prophecy” involving a Cathar martyr Guilhem Belibaste who supposedly uttered the following phrase before he was roasted alive along with the rest of the Cathar heretics by the Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church:

“We shall return in 700 years when the laurel turns green again”.

What is a laurel exactly? A laurel is a wreath worn on the head, usually as a symbol of victory. If you see an image of Julius Caesar, chances are he’s wearing a laurel. As it follows, the Cathars were somehow supposed to return on August 21, 2021. While there are certainly doubts towards the veracity of such a “prophecy” it does connect to some of the YouTubers like Twin Flames International and Ask Angels with Melanie Beckler and their announcements of “ascension energy” from gigantic portals from “Lion Gates”. On Waves of the Future, it directly ties Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes, the Cathar prophecy and the the Albigensian Crusade/Genocide, reminding us of democide waves. Considering current events, this prophecy is highly significant.

While watching the above video, it occurred to me that the “laurel” that “turns green again” refers to the Holy Grail, in the form of the “Emerald Tablets of Hermes” or the diadem (considered by some to be the Holy Grail) that fell from Lucifer’s Crown in the War in Heaven when he was cast down by St Michael. In alchemy, there is something called the Green Lion. One website dedicated to Medieval alchemy relays what the Green Lion’s self declaration:

“I am the true green and Golden Lion without cares, In me all the secrets of the Philosophers are hidden.”

In the paper The Myth of Asherah: Lion Lady and Serpent Goddess by Steven A Wiggins, she is associated with the sycamore tree, the tree of life, lions, serpents, Hathor, Tanit, Astarte, the Queen of Heaven of Jeremiah, and the Wisdom consort of Yahweh. She is the quintessential embodiment of the Sun Lady.

In the Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio interview with Amanda Radcliffe–a Cathar priestess/Gnostic bishop, also claims and shows in her possession of black meteorite stones, which apparently bleed. Midway into the interview, Amanda mentioned there will be a “shift” in the “collective unconscious” that will really start to be evident next year in 2022. I actually did an interview with Amanda Radcliffe but the archons ruined it so the interview was unsalvageable.

Here’s what another Cathar medium Anaiya Sophia has to say on the subject on the Revelation and return of the Cathar Holy Grail:

Cathars believed the human spirit was an androgynous angel trapped in the material realm of the evil god, destined to be reincarnated until they achieved salvation through the consolamentum when they would return to the good god, in their original innocence. 

Those who choose to become a parfait would spend 3-4 years in an enclosed community who lived in caves, where they prayed, reflected and purified their minds and bodies.  During this period the parfait-to-be would move through three different caves, known as the Eglise, Hermit and Bethlehem.  These three stages would open and prepare the novice to receive the consolamentum, at such immense depth, that its effects would last the remainder of the lifetime – and quite possibly, beyond. 

Once a parfait, they would leave their local community and go out to spread the word, heal the sick and bring the spirit to all those who quenched. They always did this with another parfait, walking the old pathways in their navy blue robe, simple rope belt and book of love (they had transcribed in their own hand) clutched under their arm.  As for the Holy Grail, it always remained in one place – the Bethelem cave. 

Once the final crusade bludgeoned its way toward the last Cathar stronghold in March 1244, at a place called Montsegur, it is said that a second crucifixion took place.  This one, being the crucifixion of the Feminine Christ – the Light of the World. However, as 224 Cathars descended the mountain of Montsegur, they were singing.  Despite being starved and frail from months of siege and cold winter weather, they carried within them the spirit that Mary had rekindled within them. 

This key Cathar belief is confirmed by the Cathar text, the “Interrogatio Johannis (also known as “The Secret Supper – The Book of John the Evangelist”.

[5] And still I, John, questioned the Lord, saying, “Lord, how did man have spiritual origin in a carnal body?” And the Lord said to me: “By their fall spirits of heaven entered the female body of clay and took on flesh from the lusts of the flesh and took on [spirit at the same time]. . . . Spirit is born of spirit and flesh of flesh; and thus the reign of Satan ceases not in this world.”

In the article simply titled “Cathars” by Jason J Mark, of World History Encyclopedia, he writes about Cathar beliefs in their radical dualism, citing the Bible to support their stance, as cited in their Book of Two Principles, which is far too long to quote. (Maybe another time!)

The Book of Two Principles related, among other aspects of the faith, the dualist nature of life and how humans, once divine spirits of light, came to be bound in corruptible mortal flesh.

The story goes that the devil came to the gates of heaven and requested entry but was denied. He waited outside the gate for a thousand years, watching for a chance to slip in, and one day he saw his opportunity and took it. Once inside, he gathered an audience of divine spirits around him and told them they were losing out by continuing to love and serve God who never gave them anything. They were little more than slaves, he said, since God owned everything they thought they had. If they would follow him, however, and leave heaven, he could provide them with all kinds of pleasure such as lovely vineyards and rich fields, beautiful women and handsome men, wonderful riches, and the best wine.

Many souls were seduced and for nine days and nine nights they fell through the hole in heaven the devil had created. God allowed this for those who wished to leave but other souls were falling through the hole and so God sealed it. After the souls had fallen, they found themselves in the devil’s realm without any of the good things he had promised and, remembering the joys of heaven, they repented and asked the devil if they could return. The devil replied that they could not because he had fashioned for them bodies which would bind them to earth and cause them to forget all about heaven.

The devil made the bodies easily enough but could not manage to attach the souls to them so they would think, feel, and move; vexed by this, he asked God for help. God understood that the souls who had fallen would have to work their way back to his grace and that they could do so through struggling with these bodies so he made a deal with the devil: the devil could do as he liked with the bodies, but the souls which animated them belonged to God. The devil consented, and humans were created.

Trapped in these bodies, the soul would live, die, and be reborn in another as long as that soul remained attached to the body and the pleasures which the devil had promised it back in heaven. Once the soul renounced the body and all its temptations, it would be freed to return to God and resume its former state. The whole purpose of human existence was this struggle against the devil (known as Rex Mundi, “the king of this world”) and the prison of the flesh.

The videos below connect to what is being expressed above, if you have the time and patience to follow along.

So what are we to make about all of this? Interestingly Melanie Beckler in the above link, mentioned the “bifurcation” of the timeline as well. This reminds me of what Mike Magee has to say on his commentary on the Tarot Major Arcana Devil card in connection with Cathar beliefs.

In the perfect state of heaven the Devil has no power. The dualist eastern religions seemed to recognize the Devil as being time itself, or responsible for creating time, and time is the great corrupter. Thus in Zoroastrianism, the original Perfect creation of Ahuramazda was static, but the Evil Spirit corrupted it by introducing time into it. Modern science would identify the Devil with entropy, and some medieval pictures showed him as responsible for decay, the characteristic of the physical world.

The soul has crossed over to the spiritual level and can look back to the material world it has left, the realm of the Devil. He sees the Devil standing dominant over the world, shown as a plinth, a castle or prison, with the inhabitants chained in captivity, and shown as devils themselves. Of course, the Devil is also an immortal spirit and so is shown as an androgyne. Rather than horns, the Church’s successful attempt to identify the Devil with the classical god of fertility, Pan, the Evil Spirit is shown wearing a horned helmet. The horns on the helmet look like antlers, and some think the witches worshipped a horned god, like Cernunnos. If they did, it was mockery not serious worship, the heretics being fully aware that this world is thoroughly wicked, and their destination was purity. The Devil worked his trickery through earthly institutions that had to be obeyed, like the Church and the secular authorities, meant to keep people in bondage and ignorant of how to escape it. Having escaped, it all becomes clear.

All of these connections reminds me of the legends associated with the “leontocephaline,” also known as the Mithriac deity “Aion,” the god of eternal time. On Craig Chalquist’s Gnostic Antecedents of Jung’s Key Concepts, he says the following about Aion as a union of opposite forces.

Aeon/Aion: a Gnostic and Mithraic god; a cosmic interval of time. Jung says little about the Gnostic version as such because he knows aeons are archetypes. 

“Aion is the god of the union of opposites, the time when things come together” (1984, p. 430). “The figure of Aion usually stood at the main altar of the Mithras cult—he is a man with a lion’s head, enveloped by the Zodiacal snake, Zrvan akarana, meaning ‘boundless time’” (2010a, p. 205). 

“The Valentinian text gives the Autopator more positive qualities:  ‘Some called him the ageless Aeon, eternally young, male and female, who contains everything in himself and is [himself] contained by nothing’” (1979, P. 191). 
“Aeon” is an eternal realm, being, or celestial emanation. All aeons have archetypal names: Logos, Life, Hope, Love, First Thought, Insight, Grace, Prudence, Nameless, Unbegotten, Conception, Spirit, etc. Tangible types and images come forth from the invisible aeons inhabiting the pleroma (“fullness”). 

The aeon known as the Demiurge consorts with snakes and bears and wears the head of a lion (compare the cover image of Jung’s book Aion). Archangels are emanations of aeons: archetypal images also described as “psychic” and “spiritual.” 

In the First Book of Jeu Jesus tells his disciples that only gnosis can save the soul “from the archon of this aeon and his persecutions…You become whole through a freedom in which there is no blemish” (Schmidt & Macdermot, 1997, p. 46).

As discussed in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, in the article “The Archangel Michael in Ophite Creation Mythology” by Tuomas Rasimus, the author elaborates on the Ophite Gnostics and their associations with the Gnostic demiurge Yaldabaoth and Michael, the fiery archangel that happens to rule over the Zodiacal sign of Leo. Rasimus connects the fourfold angelic manifestation of God being the tetramorph being turned into a hebdomad of angelic archons/governors, either by the author of the Ophite diagram or someone even earlier. In other words, Michael was seen as the face of the demiurge. He emphasizes the leonine aspect of Michael as well.

Moreover, it may have been Michael’s lion-shape that specifically suggested a connection with the now demonized YHWH-Yaldabaoth, since in the Hebrew Bible both YHWH and the devil are depicted as lions. While Bernard Barc and Howard Jackson suggest that Yaldabaoth inherited his lion-shape from the devil (based on Psalms and 1 Pet 5:8) or YHWH (influenced also by Greco-Egyptian magic), I agree with Fossum that it actually comes from Michael who had been identified with the lion-shaped living creature around God’s throne. The fusion between Michael and Yaldabaoth then endowed the latter with his often-attested leonine appearance. The fusion itself derives partially from Michael’s status as the leading angel and from his leonine shape, but especially from the notion that the God of Israel is not the true God, but an angel.

A Russian Icon depicting Michael also weighing the soul of the dead against a demon and Satan.

Ancient Mystery connects the lion-faced deity with the destroying angels of the Old Testament in the below video. If you read the Book of Enoch, Uriel is listed as one of the pitiless, destroying angels that incinerated Sodom and Gomorrah, a psycopomp guide to Enoch when they tour heaven and hell, and an angel of punishment for sinners cast in Hades. Interestingly, Uriel is thought of as being the “Regent of the Sun” in John Milton’s Paradise Lost is depicted as such.

In a rather lengthy dissertation of Lewis O Anderson in The Michael Figure in the Book of Daniel, he summarizes the role of Michael in biblical theology. In the paper, he provides various citations supporting the connection between Michael and Christ, as the Seventh Day Adventists maintain. Jesus is also referred to as the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” in Revelation 5:5-6, as well.

In the book of Daniel, The Michael figure, although mentioned only three times, occupies a prominent position in history and at the eschaton as the heavenly guardian prince of Israel. The Michael problem, although complex, may be understood as basically twofold: Who is Michael? What is Michael’s function?

In the first question, a basic issue is whether Michael is a prominent angel, or a divine, messianic being. Another issue in this same question is the extent to which Michael is to be identified with other 0T beings, within or outside the book of Daniel, such as the Son of Man, Prince of the Host, and Angel of the Lord.

In the second question, Michael’s function in history in relation to the princes of Persia and Greece and his activity at the For example, is his function military, judicial, or both?

The conclusions reached are as follows: Michael is leader of the angelic hosts and of Israel, Daniel’s people. He is Israel’s patron, leader and guardian, in history and at the eschaton. Michael appears to be more than an angel. With his own distinct identity, occupying a position of focus and attention more characteristic of the divine being and functioning as heavenly warrior who intervenes to save his people Israel, Michael is another depiction of God.

Michael is identified with the Prince of the Host of Yahweh, a veiled depiction of God and the messianic, divine Son of Man. The Angel of the Lord is a precursor of Michael, functioning as God’s visier and Israel’s guardian, as does Michael in Daniel. Michael is God in His role as divine warrior, acting in behalf of His people Israel in salvation and judgment.

The heavenly being who appeared in the fiery furnace is likely the divine Angel of the Lord, and is therefore probably Michael, Israel’s guardian. Michael struggles in history with the demonic prince of Persia to prevent him from influencing the Persian king(s) to stop favoring Israel.

Michael’s eschatological functions are both judicial and military as he destroys the anti-God persecuting power, superintends the deliverance of Israel and the resurrection, and inaugurates the glorious new age.

Why the focus on St Michael you may ask? According to Bogomil belief (an cousin or variant Cathar sect), Michael was considered interchangeable with the “Son-Logos” who assumed the form of Jesus Christ on earth when he entered the Virgin Mary’s ear and incarnated, as Yuri Stoyanov in The Other God: Dualist Religions from Antiquity to the Cathar Heresy (p. 268).

While his Passion, death and Resurrection were unreal, he was victorious in battle against the rebellious Samael-Satanael. In this version of Bogomil Christology it was after the victory of Christ-Michael over Satanael that God’s first-born lost his last “divine syllable” -el (Lord) and was cast fettered into the pit, while Christ-Michael ascended to Satanael’s former throne to the right of the Father. It has been assumed sometimes that this with his fall Satanael’s seniority had automatically passed to the Son-Logos and following his triumph and imprisonment of the God’s first-born, Christ-Michael returned to his ultimate source, the Good Father.

Elsewhere in the book, Stoyanov mentions how certain beliefs of Devil-worshipping witches and sorcerers (as confessed through the Inquisition interrogations and torments) got transferred over to the Bogomil-Cathars, claiming that their dualism appeared in a reversed, blasphemous form typical of Satanism. This connects to the demonization of Michael as Samael, as the Gnostic Ophites thought, as reported by Irenaeus, an Orthodox bishop of Lyons, France. According to the “Apostolic Gnosis” site and many other sources, the Cathars claimed they could spot several instances of radical dualism throughout the Bible, that we also see in the Manichaean and Zoroastrian religions as well.

In the article “In Search of A Missing Link: The Bogomils and Zoroastrianism” by Ewa Weiling Feldthusen, the author cites Bogomil beliefs about the fall of Satan as being analogous to the creation of the world, along with Adam and Eve and their fall from Eden. They claimed that God the Father actually helped Satan create the earth, along with Adam and Eve! God realizes his error and in response, sends Michael to overthrow Satan and chain him up in the fires of hell.

Thus they taught that God the creator and cosmocrator, the ruler of cosmos, realized that in helping Satan in his act of creation, he consequently created an evil world, and decided to send forth his Son, the word, called by the Bogomils the Archangel Michael. According to Bogomil cosmology Michael was subsequently born not out of the Virgin, but entered into her right ear and went out as he had entered. According to Bogomil myth, the Virgin never gave birth to God’s son, but instead found him lying swaddled in the cave. After the apparent crucifixion, the Son bound Satanael with a thick and heavy chain and shut him in Tartarus taking from his name the angelic syllable -el. Satan’s reign on the earth has yet not ended as according to the Bogomils: “Every man has a resident demon, who teaches him evil and leads him to evil actions, and when he is dead, it inhabits his remains and stays in his tomb, and awaits the resurrection, to be punished along with him, and is not separated from him, even in punishment” (Hamilton, 1998: 194).

Zigabenus adds afterwards that the Bogomils borrowed this apprehension from the Massalian (or Messalian) heresy. In general, these two heresies were usually juxtaposed and considered equal, although the differences between them are much more significant then the similarities. The reasons why the adversaries of Bogomilism associated it with Massalianism can be found in common demonology and the similar patterns of prayer. The Massalians – members of a sect that originated in Mesopotamia about 360 AD and survived in the East until the eighth century, were called “praying people.” This was because they understood the words of St Paul “pray continuously” quite literally, and they did no work of any kind in order to dedicate their whole day to prayer without cease. The principal tenet of their faith was that every person inherited a demon from his ancestors – a demon who had possession of that person’s soul from the moment of his birth, and which would always lead them to evil.

They believed further, utilising a botanical metaphor that baptism cut away the outside branches of sin, but could not free the soul of this demon, and that baptism was therefore useless. According to this system of belief, only constant prayer could drive the demon out. Finally when the demon had been expelled, the Holy Spirit would descend and give visible and sensible marks of His presence. After this had occurred, the Holy Spirit delivered the body from all the uprisings of passion, and the soul from the inclination to evil and the Bogomilist no longer needed to fast, or to concern himself with controlling lust according to the precepts of the Gospel.

From my discussion with others, there is a general feeling like both nothing is happening and everything is falling apart, at the same time. I feel like this is what is happening to the old world, as if its being alchemically destroyed and reconstituted into another universe or “Aeon” in Gnostic lingo. Klaus Schwab of the WEF has made similar statements in his book Covid-19: The Great Reset. Over at Vrilology.com, the authors of Balder Rising (Robert Blumetti and Robert Zoller), says the following about the Old World Order, the awakening of the gods and the return of Valhalla to Midgard (Earth).

The old order is in advanced decay. The world as we know it is rapidly falling apart. The West is in a state of decline and the forces of darkness are rapidly spreading across the world. We stand between two ages—the wheel turns. The previous age is fading into the past as Loki is rallying the forces of destruction to assault the old order, plunging the world into chaos. The darkness and oppression of the great winter, Fimbul, is quickly overtaking the ordered world of the previous age. We are entering a time of the Giants, when their chaos will rule over mankind, shattering the institutions, traditions and nations that gave meaning and hope to our people and ancestors. We are entering a new dark age–the Age of Fimbulvetr.

The same authors wrote another article called Odin Consciousness and claimed the following:

“In reality, only a change in the attitude of the individual can bring about a renewal in the spirit of the nations,” wrote Carl Gustav Jung. He understood that for a people to change, individuals must change first. I wrote The Book of Balder Rising because if our people are to survive the coming collapse of the old order (Western Civilization) we have got to begin to change the spirit of our people. By that change I mean unleashing the essence of the Gods which lies dormant within each and every one of us. The Gods and Goddesses are asleep within our very DNA. They are waiting to be called back and once again forge a new bond between mortal and immortal. This process is known as Balder Rising. To accomplish this, we must begin with the individual. The essence that lies dormant is the Odin Consciousness, which manifests itself in the mythological symbols, folk tales and legends of our Folk. We can tap into these images, which reside deep within the subconscious, and release their power to transform us. They govern the religious, artistic, philosophical, heroic, and idealistic impulses that provide the traditional archetypes, by which we—the race, nation or Folk—express ourselves as a people. These instruments build our culture and civilization. Some might refer to this as the racial memory, and we as both individuals and collectively can respond to these archetypes. These archetypes can initiate a revitalization of the soul and the will on both the individual and collective levels.

As each of us travel through life, we must make decisions that will change the course of our future—or so we think. This is the belief in free will. But nothing is free in the universe. Everything we do, say, and think has a price. Thus every decision will have consequences. The Norns are believed to weave the threads of our destiny, and some interpret this as predestination. But what the Norns weave are simply pathways that we may take. There are many crossroads in these pathways, and when we come to a crossroad we must make a decision. There is a certain degree of free will involved, but at the same time we are limited to the choices provided for us. I consider these choices tests the All-Father presents to us to prove our worth. This process is referred to as Wyrd. What destiny lies in wait for us depends on the choices we make—which pathways we decide to travel. If we make the wrong decisions, then the Gods may choose another to fulfill their plans.

In the beginning was the Wyrd. The gods are indeed awakening in time to battle the Giants once again, while contacting their heralds in time for the End of Days. Vril aka the “Odin/Balder force” is also the same force that other world cultures call “chi,” “reiki,” or “prana.” There was also an inner circle of Satanists within the Nazi party called the Vril Society or the Order of the Black Sun, dedicated to the study and hijacking this etheric substance, along with Black Sun worship–which connects to Saturn/Satan/Cain. Perhaps this is the driving force behind the plandemic, the Nazi-like authoritarian push for global vaccinations and health-passes–which is essentially the doctrine of the “Great” Reset of the World Economic Forum. The only history will be written by the tyrants. Once ensnared into a global digital gulag and the “internet of bodies” panopticon, there will be no escape. Unless, of course, Wormwood decides to crash into the earth and destroy all of reality. It will all signal the end of history and the extinction of the human race as we know it now. As Titus Groan reveals, the ultimate aim of the Antichrist is the following:

This is the ultimate goal of Evil, to cut man off from all knowledge of his true spiritual inheritance by blinding him to the spiritual hierarchies and, more importantly, removing all knowledge of Christ from his consciousness.

This is the aim of the spirit of Antichrist: to make spiritually blind and then to obliterate all knowledge of Christ and of His true Nature as the Great Redeemer from the souls of men.

The Great Light of the Apostolic Message of the First Church in the First Age that had burst forth on the Earth at a most critical time in its history, by pulling mankind back from the spiritual abyss, was targeted by Ahriman for destruction at its beginning.

Welcome to the Age of Wormwood. This is “new normal” of the New Aeon of Horus/Lucifer. What better way to cut off your spiritual connection to God through the digitization of human consciousness akin to something like The Matrix? That’s how one author, Felix Aleman, defines the Antichrist system:

The architects and ideologues of the NWO (the Sinarchy; that is, the worshippers of the Demiurge) constantly tell us that there is no other possible way of government than the “democratic”, “western” one. This is the only that can bring us “freedom” and sicure our “human rights”. It may have some defects, they recognize sometimes, but it´s definitely the best one, if not the only one, and sooner or later all the remaining “dictatorships” (that is, the countries that still resist the globalist process) will fall, and a world republic (a dream of Marxists as well as liberals; communism and capitalism being two sides of the same “coin” –  money is internationalist) will be established. What they “forget” to tell us, however, is who will rule this “global paradise” and how. It will be a worldwide tyranny by a plutocratic “elite”, where a very small number of people would have absolute power and the rest of us would be slaves… many without even knowing it (like the prisoners in Plato´s cave), because most of the controlled-enslaved ones will believe they live “in democracy”… living actually in the “hell on earth”.

This has been and is, as mentioned above, a very long-term process (that accelerates and intensifies with the advance of the Kali Yuga). It is like the famous tale of the cooked frog. If you put her in a pan with boiling water, she will immediately jump out and save herself, but if you put her in the pan when the water is just lukewarm and you gradually increase the heat, she will be slowly cooked before she notices, and explode. Exactly the same has happened to us; they have brainwashed us little by little with the deceptive and subversive dogmas of the modern world. We have been educated to be slaves inside of the demiurgic matrix, and most modern people (particularly westerners) are even “happy slaves”.

This brings us to what will supposedly occur in 2025–a key date for world civilization. According to Tom Horn, the New World Order will be semi-operational by 2025, along with the return of the “Grail king”–e.g., the Antichrist–the “little” horn prophesied in Daniel. Tom Horn cites the Washington D.C. phallic monument, along with the Capital Dome, are ritualized monuments to conjure the rise of the Beast. He also cites various Masonic temples and architecture as proof of a Satanic/Antichrist conspiracy to not only takeover the world but also to storm the Heavens and take on God himself.

Considering the shit-show chaos erupting in Afghanistan as well as the catastrophic fallout from Hurricane Ida, various droughts leading to famine, flooding, rumbling volcanic activity and the hyperinflation of food/agriculture–perhaps we are witnessing a sneak preview of the great tribulation as prophesied in the Bible. Tom Horn highlights the convergence of amazing prophetic milestones and scheduled events that appear to strikingly line up with clear biblical prophecy. And so, we now, we sit back and watch this clown show unfold–all moving towards Revelation 13 and 14–like a “flood.” Coincidentally, 2024 is when the eclipse is supposed to be completed from 2017–thus forming an X over America.

I’m thinking this Cathar prophecy of the laurel turning green again refers to the spirits of the Cathars or the Cathar religion returning to this world somehow. Considering what is currently happening with this authoritarian rollout for lockdowns, China-styled health passports/mandatory vaccinations/social credit scores, and quarantine camps–it all feels like the spirit of both the “Holy” Inquisition and the Nazi-styled police state has returned as well, just in time for the Aquarian New Atlantis/New World Order. At the same time, the focus on “conspiracy theories” can lead one to thoughts of defeat and empty, hollow canals. Madness is at a fever pitch in this Zeitgeist. We are at a very curious impasse in history.

Speaking of spirits of Cathars, according to Apostolic Gnosis, the founder of the French Gnostic Church tradition, Jules Doinel established it based on a séance he and others were involved with. After the Church was established, Doinel suddenly had a change of heart and suddenly became a Roman Catholic, and collaborated with Leo Taxil to write an expose on Gnosticism and Freemasonry called Lucifer Unmasked. What’s interesting about this connection is that Leo Taxil is also the one that is pegged to be the true author of the Three World Wars letter of Albert Pike. As pointed out in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, I discussed the work of Joe Fisher, who was involved in channeling his “spirit guides” which turned out to be wicked spirits from Hell. 1 Timothy 4:1 tells us exactly this:

Now the Spirit [a]expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons…

Richard Stanley, a film director who made films like Dust Devil, Hardware and The Color Out of Space, spoke in recent interviews at great length about the Cathar mysteries and the Nazi grail hunter Otto Ran. This is related to the Vril society which he does not mention. In his YouTube video lecture “Matriarchy, Mary Magdalene, and the Cathar Traditions” he mentions the Cathar Book of Love. He also equates it with an Apocalyptic sounding the Book of the Seven Seals. He claims that the book will not be open until the Day of the Lord/Judgment Day. This sounds like the Book of Life, which plays an important role in Revelation as well. Val Winyard, who authored an article called “HOLY GRAIL part 2 Neo-Cathars” has this to say about the return of one specific Cathar spirit, which for our purposes, sounds a lot like the Sun Lady! Amanda Radcliffe also made similar claims in that that the spirit of the Black Madonna manifested to her in the form of a “white” glowing lady as well.

The fortress of Montségur became a Cathar Cathedral. Esclarmonde de Foix was portrayed as a virginal high priestess. She changed into a dove as she was burnt alive, and her spirit flew to freedom.  At spirit-raising sessions in Paris she started to appear to believers.  Some people claimed to be reincarnated from her (and still do.)

But Esclarmonde was a popular name in the 12th century. The lady burnt was not Esclarmonde de Foix, for she would have been 90 years old at the time, having been born in 1154; she died in 1232.  She is usually depicted as very young and beautiful and was a great lady who became a Parfaite, or lady Cathar priest.  She is sometimes known as “the guardian of the Grail.”  (Others think the true purpose of besieging Montségur was to find the Holy Grail and when the Catholics could not, they burnt the Cathars in revenge.)

There is a lot of online rumblings of a time of trouble to arise this month since it is the 20th anniversary of 9/11. 9/11 symbolized the destruction of the twin pillars that hold up the heavens–signaling the destruction of the universe and the storming of the heavens. It is notable that 9/06/2021 is the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah–a date associated with the the resurrection of the dead. One thing that is noteworthy in scripture, however, is the sign of St. Michael rising up, as marking the 70th week of Daniel/Jacob’s Trouble/the Great Tribulation.

And at that time (the time of the end) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people (the Jews): and there shall be a time of trouble (the last 7 Vials of God’s wrath), such as never was since there was a nation EVEN TO THAT SAME TIME: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake (resurrect), some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Dan. 11:32-45, 12: 1-3)

This verse also connects to both Rev. 10:1-7 and Daniel 12:7, as pointed out by Jerome Gerbasi in his book The Prophetic Harmony of the Lamp of God…and the 70th Week of Daniel. Is the Hour of Temptation warned by Jesus Christ about to unfold within the next few weeks and months ahead? Who knows really. Maybe.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

At the same time, will the Cathar Universal religion set to return soon to thwart Rex Mundi’s counterfeit kingdom on earth? In a way, even Orthodox Christianity prophecy such a return as noted in The Third Age: Reflections on Our Hidden Material Core by Lenart Škof:

The three ages, as propounded by the authors of the Babylonian Talmud, refer to the chaotic age before the Law, to the age of the Law of Torah, and to the future Messianic age which is still to come. In the Middle Ages, this thought clearly resounded in the teachings of Joachim of Fiore (1135?−1202) whose idea was that history was divided into three ages—the Age of the Father (Old Testament), the Age of the Son (New Testament and Church), and the Age of the Spirit (Third Testament and new Spiritual Church) which is still to come and in which new religious orders would inaugurate a new Spiritual Church here on the earth.

Selah!
