“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race (Human Beings) can fall about the devils. One is to DISBELIEVE in their existence. The other is to BELIEVE, and to FEEL AN UNHEALTHY INTEREST in them.”
What is the Occult?
The word itself comes from the Latin word “Occultus” meaning “Things Hidden” which involves a pursuit of the secret and mysterious.
Websters Dictionary defines “Occult” as BOTH a verb and a noun at the same time, As a Noun it means something not revealed: it is secret and is not able to be seen or detected, not manifest or detectable by clinical methods alone. It is also a Verb meaning to Conceal or to deceive, to hide from sight.
They also for the most part can do their homework concerning YOU before or even while your being detracted by the show so not every Medium or Witch is a true believer in the Darkness or the so-called Light they say tells them information.
They might just be good at using technology, Like hidden microphones with someone in another room with “Google search” looking up your very revealed past on a computer and telling them as they push for info. Some go through your trash or e-mails to learn emotional info about you.
Some people are easily led, while others are more not so easily deceived but the real deal is RARE at best, though it can exist!
There are real Witches, Wizards and Mediums, those who are nothing like the Hollywood type cast or the bogyman we made them out to be, Witch Hunting never ends well and never finds the one it appears to be hunting!
I Peter 5:8
Plainly tells us “Be self controlled and ALERT. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”
Why a Lion and not a Lioness?
Because the forces of Darkness CANNOT know what your thinking or what you intend to do so LIKE the Lion who doesn’t hunt for himself but relies on the female to find food for him, Satan can only make noises (Circumstances) to scare you into the fear he needs as his food (Building Materials) to propagate the darkness of binding your life.
Fear is Satan’s home turf, without that fear there can be no deception, it cannot hold you back, down or unclear in life if you DO NOT FEAR it, so it is your fear of the unknown that deceives your reason concerning the Occult.
The Opposite of Fear is true Knowledge of the Occult NOT THE FALSE information they give you to bend your reason to their will, the Bible shines a true light on the practices of the Occult, once you know the truth the lie looses its roots in you and fear cannot reproduce and compound itself!
John 10:10 reveals the whole purpose of Satan in the lives of Men and Women on earth, his THREE STEP PLAN.
“The THIEF comes ONLY to steal and Kill and Destroy; I (Jesus) have come that YOU may have LIFE and to HAVE IT TO THE FULL.”
As can be seen there is a distinct difference between the Jesus of Scripture and the Satan personality of Scripture, There is NO such thing as an EQUAL power struggle between Good and Evil. God has COMPLETE CONTROL over every aspect of Creation, he and only he can control the IMBALANCE caused by Sin in the Universe, an imbalance HE DID NOT CREATE!
There are many people who do not believe ANYTHING that is considered Occultism is real and while there are clearly the FAKE among them as there are among the Church at large NOT everything is fake just because some of it is and if we deem things that way it makes the real issues more hidden and we find ourselves being accomplices to Satan’s cover-ups!
The Nine Satanic Statements reveal the true nature of Satan to the world once you look under the hood and proves that Satan is NOTHING like the God of the Bible!

Comments in Red.
1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!
(There is NO wisdom in full out indulgence while abstinence leaves you room to really think about what you are going to do!)
2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
(Here Satan is said to be attached to the Flesh not the Spirit, but I would caution that Satan is a fallen ANGEL not a human being of flesh so he has deceived us into a confusion concerning the true nature of the spirit realm which was CREATED FIRST. All things truly Spiritual are much more real than mere flesh and blood but Satan accepts Man as an animal instead of who he really is.)
3. Satan represents undefiled (A very hypocritical view since Satan is a deceived being!) wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
( You can say that Satan represents something but the fruits of his presence represent the truth, he is anything but undefiled his nature is defiled in its very make-up. There is nothing in the actions of satanic knowledge that would warrant this statement, in fact every action of Satan in the Earth PROVES that he is just the opposite of this, he is the definition of Self-Deceit! )
(Self-deceit was the reason Satan fell in the first place!)
4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!
(In other words you like those who like you and to hell with the world! Satan’s nature is a selfish one, using those who serve him to get back at God for HIS OWN CHOICES, but do not be deceived Satan hates man because we are God’s image, the reflection of just what Satan lost!)
5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!
( Vengeance? Against who? Satan did it all to himself, he has NO ONE to blame but himself, he was ALONE with his own thoughts when he became jealous of his creators power and his right to make man in his own image.
Satan is the most pitiful of creatures, the most childish and immature of every creature God made, selfish to the point of absurdity, so VENGEANCE which ONLY belongs to those who have a righteous cause is not his but God’s ALONE! )
6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!
(psychic vampires are those who hold the spiritual view point of Man in the image of God. One who uses subtle persuasion techniques and passive aggressive behavior to manipulate other while taking the high road to self-righteous indignation.
While this is true of religious hypocrites and their judgment of anyone’s sins, it does not apply to those who hold the truth of God up as a light toward sin to expose it!
It is interesting that Satan would talk of being responsible when he of all creation was found irresponsible in the highest degree.)
7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!
( This statement seems to have an element of truth to it if you don’t dig to deep, but this is an evolutionary statement not a well thought out one, by simply respecting man as another animal you then place all man’s actions in the realm of flesh as O.K because his ends reflect survival of the fittest not morality.
Satan will not deal with man’s true nature because that is the side of man he is most Jealous of and why he deceives man in the first place, to remove man’s knowledge of his past history before the fall!)
8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
(What he fails to mention is the penalty of sin which is spiritual death, as every physical sin has a spiritual counterpart we are held too, every action of the flesh has an equal and opposite reaction in the spiritual realm which we will one day pay the price in spades!)
9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!
( The real problem with this statement is that Satan is no ones friend and wouldn’t know how to be one if he tried, every statement so FAR PROVES that to be true of him, he is a deceiver, a liar, a destroyer, a murderer and thief but not a friend, he even HATES THOSE WHO SAY THEY LOVE HIM.
Satan is incapable of any form of love, even human love is too much like God to be used by him so he must pervert and twist even that to lust to be comfortable in its presence!
Since the Churches business is God’s business Satan can play no part in that business and thus can be considered no friend of the Church, whose business by the way, is in casting out Satan from God’s business as God cast him out of paradise, to separate not conjoin, too bring his works down not to build them up!
Our business and busy-ness depends on God NOT Satan’s presence, there are plenty of things to do without the presence of Satan being a factor so he overrates his importance, when Satan is finally bound the Church will do the Fathers business in creation without any evil so this statement is absurd at best! )
“(Satan) was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44)
There are a number of alternatives he throws at man that have been prevalent since Satan first started temping humankind.
1) One alternative is relativism, a philosophy that claims truth is always changing. Morality is by majority; if everyone says pornographic movies are good, then they simply become good.
2) Another alternative to Scripture is subjectivism, which suggests that something may be true for you but not for me.
3) Another is empiricism, which requires us to measure or test everything for it to be true – if you cannot see God, He must not exist.
4) Satan also pushes existentialism, which argues that the only truth is that which you can experience. The Bible can only become the Word of God if you get an experience from it.
5) Another alternative to the Bible is the philosophy of rationalism, which makes a god of logic. This allows a man to decide what he will deem true or untrue; substituting “Thus saith the man” for “Thus saith the Lord.”
6) Perhaps the most dangerous alternative to Scripture is pragmatism, where we forget all about truth and simply search for what works. If the Bible doesn’t seem to work, we junk it for something else that does.
Here’s a great example of a BIG SATANIC LIE!
Here’s a big clue you idiot bigot, Hitler killed millions of Jews from and IN OTHER COUNTRIES besides Germany, DUH! Simple math proves this a lie but its propaganda not fact so who’s counting? Pray Tell!
The Occult just as this propaganda only serves to twist the facts and reality to allow deception a foundation for growth! I came out of this mess so I know it to be true, that while I believe there are REAL people with hearts, with dreams and very sincerely looking for the truth BUT what kind of truth, a truth based in FACTS or a vague, misty version of the truth twisted around a mystery?
The real test that proves Christianity is superior to the Occult in every way are in the realm of testimony, no Occultist has ever had their life changed to better humanity in any way because the Occult is a selfish endeavor dedicated to animal lust and not the betterment of mankind.
